hode is a reimplementation of the engine used by the game 'Heart of Darkness'
developed by Amazing Studio.
Datafiles:
----------

The original datafiles from the Windows releases (Demo or CD) are required.

- hod.paf (hod_demo.paf)
- setup.dat
- *_hod.lvl
- *_hod.sss
- *_hod.mst


Running:
--------

By default the engine will try to load the files from the current directory
and start the game from the first level.

These defaults can be changed using command line switches :

Usage: hode [OPTIONS]...
--datapath=PATH Path to data files (default '.')
--level=NUM Start at level NUM
--checkpoint=NUM Start at checkpoint NUM

Display and engine settings can be configured in the 'hode.ini' file.
