NAME

scummvm - graphic adventure game interpreter  

SYNOPSIS

scummvm [OPTIONS ] [GAME ]  

DESCRIPTION

scummvm is an interpreter that will play graphic adventure games based on a variety of game engines.

GAME is a short name of game to load. For example, monkey for Monkey Island. This can be either a built-in gameid, or a user configured target.  

OPTIONS

Please note that more detailed information for the following options can be found in the README file.

The meaning of most long options (that is, those options starting with a double-dash) can be inverted by prefixing them with no-. For example, --no-aspect-ratio will turn aspect ratio correction off. This is useful if you want to override a setting in the configuration file.
