    This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
    the Free Software Foundation.

    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
    COPYING file for more details.


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).

artists and writers in order to shorten the time until the next
version.  So if you have experience in C++ (and optionally Python),
