    Here is the rest of the Patch Documentation.

    Loads of command line parameters

    Command Line
    -level= Load Specific Level e.g. "-level=data\maps\paris5_3"
    -selectlevel Level Select Dialog
    -windowed This is unsupported. The desktop colour depth should match the colour depth in the settings.
    -padplayback= Plays back the basic input. When finished the application will end.
    -padrecord= Records the basic inputs until the application finished
    -benchmark= Gives a Benchmark figure at the end of the run. There must be a bin\.pad file, that was recorded using 'padrecord'
    -settings Displays a dialog that allows a user to change there device settings
    -settings_override= Overrides the gfx settings for a predefined subset. Some things are not changed, like resolution. The profile name must be in upper case.
    -mode=xx Overrides the gfx setting's screen mode value. Under Windows98/ME, or any situation where D3D returns a 0 for a modes refresh, the refresh rate is ignored.
    -multisample= Overrides the gfx setting's multisample value. This can be 0, 2-16. A value of 1 is not supported.
    -godmode Sets the power ups to level 10 and gives a selection of guns and ammo

    Benchmark Instructions
    To record a demo of paris1 use the following shortcut:

    Target: "[INSTALLDI]\bin\TRAOD_P3.exe" -padrecord=bin\paris1.pad -level=data\maps\paris1 -debugkeys
    Start in/working directory: "[INSTALLDIR]"

    Once you have run around enough use Alt-F4 to quit recording.
    'paris1' can be swapped for any level name, but you have to change the '-padrecord=?.pad' to the same name.

    To play it back use:

    Target: "[INSTALLDIR]\bin\TRAOD_P3.exe" -benchmark=paris1
    Start in/working directory: "[INSTALLDIR]"

    This will record only the basic input data.
    The debug function keys and other hardwired keys will not be recorded.
    You should not use the menus while recording a benchmark demo.
    '-benchmark' can then be combined with options like '-settings_override', '-mode' and '-multisample' to create different benchmark setups.

    The results of the benchmark will be appended to 'benchmark.csv'.
    This feature is a gift and will not be supported by Eidos Interactive or Core Design.
    Thanks to Anthony Tan from for all the useful feed back on this feature.

    Bugs Fixed V41:
    Stopped Crashes when Keyboard is remapped to selected keys.
    System deadlocks if the correct is not present when playing an FMV.
    System deadlocks or crashes just after loading a level.
    Missing ShotGun.
    EAX Logos incorrect.
    FMV player now supports machines with the VMR9 interface.
