    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

See the INSTALL file for details.

Note that this package alone doesn't allow you to play anything -
you'll need a game package in addition to this one. However, there
are a few sample scripts and programs in the test directory that
you can try. See test/README for further information.

Configuring Adonthell:

The first time you run Adonthell, a configuration file is created:
adonthell.xml. Edit it to customise the game to your convenience.

The available options and their default values are:

* Audio

  Whether sound should be mono or stereo.
  Whether audio output should be 8 or 16 bit.
  The sample rate in Hz. Valid values are 44100, 22050 and 11025.

* General

  Library to use for low level hardware access. For now, only 'sdl'
  is available.

* Input

  Map physical controls such as keyboards or gamepads to a virtual
  controller. Multiple physical controls can be assigned to a virtual 
  control by separating them with a pipe '|' character.

  Movement controls; defaults to arrow keys.

  <a_button>left shift|right shift</a_button>
  Run while this key is pressed.


  <c_button>left control</c_button>


* Video

  Enable Fullscreen mode. Set to 0 to switch to Windowed mode.


- $HOME/.adonthell
  contains the configuration file and your saved games.

- Global data directory
  You can get this directory by invoking 'adonthell -d' (by default
  /usr/local/share/adonthell). This is the directory where games will
  install to. If you have a game installed somewhere else, you can
  play it by invoking 'adonthell -g </full/path/to/my/game>'

Environment Variables:

  directory to search for Adonthell backend modules. Overwrites the
  default path ($prefix/lib/adonthell).
