This page contains a list of commands that can be passed into the executable before launch.


Descriptions are modified from the help/? descriptions except for help/? itself which didn't have one. More experimenting should be done to improve the descriptions and add more details. To use these, type in the command line (dosbox): "RGFX.exe -[arguments]"
