From FreeSpace Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Unless running from a command prompt, to use command lines, it is necessary to use a shortcut.

Contents

-jpgtga

This command line option lets FRED display .jpg and .tga textures.

-glow

This option enables FRED to use glowmaps.

-spec

This option enables FRED to use specular highlights that is to use shinemaps.

-fredhtl

Note: 3.6.10 FRED builds have this feature automatically turned on.

Using this command line option, FRED2_Open will run in HTL mode.

-no_warn

Removes the various warnings displayed when FRED is not happy about a certain aspect of a mission. Only use this if you know what you're doing, as the warnings are there for a reason and ignoring them can in some cases lead to crashes during play.

-mod

The mod option allows FRED to work with mods, and functions exactly like the FS_Open equivalent. Multimods are possible as well, by separating the mods with a comma. For it to work properly, this has to be the last command line option.
