MegaGlest has a number of command line options; toggles which can be appended to the executable name when running MegaGlest from a command line or console. Some of these are unique to the console, allowing settings to be controlled before the game even finishes starting up (such as disabling VBOs), while others allow an alternative to changes to the INI settings.

UsageEdit

To use a command line option, append it behind the name of the binary or executable for MegaGlest in the command line. For example, to toggle on verbose reporting, you could use:

megaglest --verbose

It's also possible to use multiple command line options. For example, if you wanted to set a different resolution and use fullscreen, you could use:

megaglest --resolution=1920x1080 --fullscreen=true

Since you can assign command line options to links, this makes it possible to have a link to play MegaGlest in fullscreen and a link to play it at a smaller windowed resolution.

--validate-techtrees=a=purgeunused=purgeduplicates
=svndelete=hideduplicates
Displays a report detailing any known problems related to your selected techtrees game data.
  • a is a comma-delimited list of techtrees to validate.
  • purgeunuse is an optional parameter which tells the validation to delete extra files in the techtree that are not used.
  • purgeduplicates is an optional parameter which tells the validation to merge duplicate files in the techtree.
  • svndelete is an optional parameter telling the validation to call SVN delete on duplicate/unused files in the techtree.
  • hideduplicates is an optional parameter, which, if true, tells the validation to not show duplicate files in the techtree. This only applies when files are purged due to the above flags being set.

Example:

megaglest --validate-techtrees=megapack
--validate-actions=a=purgeunused=purgeduplicates
=hideduplicates
Displays a report detailing any known problems related to your selected factions game data.
  • a is a comma-delimited list of factions to validate.
  • purgeunuse is an optional parameter which tells the validation to delete extra files in the techtree that are not used.
  • purgeduplicates is an optional parameter which tells the validation to merge duplicate files in the techtree.
  • hideduplicates is an optional parameter, which, if true, tells the validation to not show duplicate files in the techtree. This only applies when files are purged due to the above flags being set.

Example:

megaglest --validate-factions=magic,tech
--validate-scenario=a=purgeunused Displays a report detailing any known problems related to your selected scenario game data.
  • a is a single scenario to validate.

megaglest --convert-models=/m.g3d=png=keepsmallest
--use-language=x Forces the language to be the language specified by x, where x is a language filename or ISO639-1 code.

Example:

megaglest --use-language=en
--show-map-crc=x Show the calculated CRC for the map named x.
--show-tileset-crc=x Show the calculated CRC for the tileset named x.
--show-techtree-crc=x Show the calculated CRC for the techtree named x.
--show-scenario-crc=x Show the calculated CRC for the scenario named x.
--show-path-crc=x=y Show the calculated CRC for files in the path lo

cated in x using file filter y.
