|s selects snow|
|Snow is a defensive weapon. If you hit a house with snow it creates a coating that hail cannot destroy. Only rain can be used to destroy that layer of snow. Lightning and tornado are not effected.|
|r selects rain|
|Destroys one row of the house. Can be used to melt a row of snow.|
|h selects hail|
|This will destroy two rows of the house, but cannot destroy a snow coating.|
|l selects lightning|
|Splits the house into two pieces. Not influenced by wind.|
|t selects tornado|
|Not as effective as lightning but the tornado goes straight to the bottom of the house as well.|

You can start the game with the following command line options:
--connect IP, The game will connect to the server with the given host (IP or hostname).
--demo, Self running demo mode.
--help, Short help screen.
--server, Starts the game in server mode and waits for a connecting client.
--version, Shows the program version and exits.
When you run the game in network mode you should have the same game versions on client and server side. Versions prior 1.0pre4 wont work at all due to the lack of network capability. The game will start with different versions, but it will probably crash at any time, if there are too many differences in the two versions.
The Tornado game server runs on port 3000 TCP. (defined in main.c)
Destroying your own house will increase your score as well. :^)
