       xtron - a simple version of the old classic TRON




       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       xtron is a simple implementation of the classic game TRON. The plot  is
       easy:  avoid  hitting anything, including walls, your own tail and your
       opponent.  You can play in one- or two-player mode or watch the demo.

       The game starts in demo mode. To start playing, click  on  one  of  the
       human  buttons  or both. Click on the button with "tron" on it to reset
       the scores, and click on the bed to pause.

       The standard controls are:

       Player 1:  Player 2:
       w - up     8 - up
       s - down   2 - down
       a - left   4 - left
       d - right  6 - right

       Player 2 can also use the arrow keys. Edit  /etc/X11/app-defaults/Xtron
       to change the keys.

       You  can  reset the score of a player by clicking on the player’s score

       You can also change the "look-ahead" of the  AI  opponent  by  changing
       xtron.lookAHEAD in the /etc/X11/app-defaults/Xtron file.


              The xtron configfile.
