SYNOPSIS

pioneers [ --server server ] [ --port port ] [ --name name ]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the pioneers command.

Pioneers is an implementation of the popular, award-winning "Settlers of Catan" board game for the GNOME desktop environment. It uses a client/server model for networked play of between two and eight players. You will need to connect to a machine running either pioneers-server-gtk or pioneers-server-console to play. An AI client, pioneersai, is also available.

OPTIONS

Pioneers accepts the standard GTK+/GNOME commandline options, and the following options:
-s, --server server
  Hostname of the server
-p, --port port
  Portname of the server
-n, --name name
  Use this name for the player instead of the name in the settings file
-v, --spectator
  Connect as spectator instead of as a player
-m, --metaserver metaserver
  Connect to this metaserver instead of the metaserver in the settings file
--debug
  Turn on debugging mode
--version
  Show the version and quit

When the server and port are both provided, the client automatically quits when the connection is broken.

ENVIRONMENT

The default settings can be influenced with the following environment variable:
PIONEERS_METASERVER
  The hostname of the metaserver. If it is not set, the default metaserver will be used.
