|-window||Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.|
|-root||Draw on the root window.|
|-mono||Make all the rocks the same color.|
|How many different colors to use. Default 5. Colors are chosen randomly.|
|-install||Install a private colormap for the window.|
|Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.|
|Maximum number of rocks to draw on the screen at once. Default 100.|
|A measure of the speed with which the observer and the rocks pass each other, from 1 to 100. Default 100, meaning very fast. If youre on a slow display connection (the animation looks jerky) then try making this number smaller, and/or decreasing the number of rocks.|
|Number of microseconds to delay between each frame. Default 50000, meaning about 1/20th second. Compare and contrast with -speed, above.|
|-norotate||Dont rotate the observer; just fly through the field on the level.|
|-nomove||Dont turn the observer; just fly straight ahead through the field.|
|-3d||Do red/blue 3d separations: if you look at the screen with 3d glasses, the rocks will be jumping right out at you. Oooooh, scaaary!|
|-fps||Display the current frame rate and CPU load.|
DISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
There should be an option to display doppler shift (a gravity rainbow.)
