ricochet — client application for multi-player ricochet robots game
ricochet --host <hostname> --port <port> --name <username> --game
Ricochet is a
client for the Ricochet Robots server (rrserve). It provides a
view of the board and permits the user to fully interact with the
server, both managing the set of games running in the server and
playing individual games.
Options are as follows:
Print a help/usage message and exit.
Select the host running the Ricochet Robots server. By default,
ricochet connects to localhost
Select the TCP port to connect to. By default, ricochet connects to
Specify the player name to present to the server. This name will be
shown to all other players. By default, this is the user's login name.
Select a game to join or create. By default, ricochet presents a
dialog showing the available games and also allowing the user to
create a new game.
This allows the user to watch the selected game rather than
participating in it.
