NAME

freevial - trivia platform for community events
 

SYNOPSIS

freevial [ OPTIONS] [--database <PATH>] [--skin <PATH>]
 

DESCRIPTION

This page briefly documents the freevial command. Freevial is trivia-like game for community events (idealy to be played with a projector).
 

USAGE

You may need to specify the path to the questions database you want to use with the --database argument. The database can be either folder or a compressed file.
Additionally, you can choose a different look using the --skin option to tell it where the appearance information it should use is located.

-d, --debug
Run Freevial in debug mode (this doesn't change much at all).
-m, --mute
Disable music and sounds.
-f, --fullscreen
Start in fullscreen mode (it can be windowed ingame with F11).
-l, --locked
Start in locked mode (game can't be closed nor questions aborted; unlock by pressing the l-key in the team selection screen).
-h, --help
Prints the help and exists.
-v, --version
Prints information about the current version and release series, and exists.
--info-db, --info-database
Prints information about the loaded database and exists. This can be combined with the --database option.

--no-music
