openkb - An open source clone of the game King's Bounty
openkb reimplements the game engine and provides a free data
pack to play the game.
To use the original graphics/maps/sounds from the real game,
you should have them somewhere you can point openkb to. By
default, /var/games/openkb-data is used, but you can
fine-tune the location of each file and directory with a
command line argument or from config file.
- -c CONFIG-FILE
Point to specific configuration file instead of searching
all over the place in $HOME and $CWD.
Few words about the file in general.
Attempt to automaticly find suitable game files in the datadir directory.
Turning this off requires each and every module be explicitly specified in the
config file. See below.
Try every module in list when searching for a resource.
Start a new module definition. You can have multiple [module] sections in your file.
Valid parameters are:
- name=NAMEArbitary name of the module.
Arbitary name of the module.
Module type. Used to resolve various game resources. For example 'dos' might
search for original game binary, while 'free' would simply look for .PNG files, etc.
You can provide up to 3 paths with resource locations. A valid location is
a directory or an archive file/disk image file. Exact data extraction strategy
depends on the type setting.
Default config file location.
Too many to list. The project is in very early development
stage. Feel free to contribute over https://openkb.sourceforge.net/
