XBill 2.1 Build Status

Welcome to xbill...

Ever get the feeling that nothing is going right? You're a sysadmin, and someone's trying to destroy your computers. The little people running around the screen are trying to infect your computers with Wingdows [TM], a virus cleverly designed to resemble a popular operating system. Your objective is to click the mouse on them, ending the potential threat. If one of the people reaches a computer, it will attempt to replace your operating system with the virus it carries. It will then attempt to run off the screen with your vital software. The game ends when only 1 (or 0) of your computers are being productive. Additionally, some computers are connected with network cables. When one computer on a network becomes infected, a spark will be sent down the cable, and will infect the computer on the other end when it reaches there.

Clicking the button on one of the little people will cause it to cry out in pain and melt (id software eat your heart out!), dropping the stolen os if it is carrying one. If a computer is running Wingdows or is temporarily off, the os can be dragged back to the computer (or another computer compatible with that os). To extinguish a spark drag the bucket of water from the upper left corner onto it.

The status bar at the bottom tells the following:
	Number of Bills on/off the screen
	Number of Computers running their OS/off/Wingdows
	Level
	Score

Options: -l Start at level n.

--gui <gui>
	Use a specific front end.  The possible values are
	gtk, motif, and athena.  Note that some of these
	may not be compiled into the binary.

-size <size>
	Play on a field of size x size, instead of the normal
	400x400.  <size> must be larger than 400.

-v	Print version number and exit.

-h	Print help and exit.

When using the GTK gui, all standard GTK options are supported.
When using the Athena or Motif GUI, all standard X Intrinsics
options are supported.
