.SH DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the
.B quake2-server
command.
.PP
\fBQuake II\fP is a popular first-person shooter game, released in 1997
by iD Software.  This wrapper script will launch the Quake II engine.  The
game data needs to be installed independently using the 'game-data-packager'
program, and by default it will be looked for at \fI/usr/share/games/quake2\fR
and \fI/usr/share/games/quake2-demo\fR.
.PP
This wrapper script accepts a few GNU-style options.
Any further arguments are passed to the engine unmodified.
Consult the engine documentation for full details, but most engines support a
syntax where you can give console commands by prefixing with a plus sign.
.PP
In addition to any arguments on the command line, the quake2-server script
automatically passes the arguments "+set dedicated 1" to the engine.
.SH OPTIONS
These options are accepted for \fBWRAPPER-OPTIONS\fR in the
synopsis.
