If --ct-dir is used, then files named
|--add-section||file||Each option call adds the filename to an internal list. Each file must be of type GCT, GCH or WCH. All GCT files together are combined with an internal code handler to one section (like a GCH file). GCH and WCH define sections and patches. The defined sections are added and VBI hooks are optionally initialized. Use option --force to allow overlapped sections. Use option --verbose up to 2 times for a log.
The intention of this option is to add a Gecko Code Handler and cheat codes to a main.dol for automatic execution.
|--all-ranks||[=mode]||If set to
|--allow-all||Usually commands accept only options with impact to the command. All other options fire a syntax error. But if
This makes changing the command of a long command line without removing useless options easier. It also helps to override wrong option permissions.
|-A||--arenas||arenas||Define a new arena order. A comma separated list in the format
Arenas will only be exchanged so that always all arenas are assigned. But if using
|-B||--brief||List only the track file names and suppress table header and footer.|
|--bt||char||Reset (str is empty) or replace the second character of 'bt' to create an own online world for battles. The file StaticR.rel will be patched at 4 places.|
|--bt-region||region||Same as --region, but only for online battles.|
|--chdir||dir||Set a new working directory for all following options, for all parameters and for the command execution. This option can be used multiple times, but for parameter parsing and for command execution only the last usage is relevant. Nevertheless,
|--color||Force colorized text. This is the default, if an output file is a terminal. But colorized text is only supported for a few messages.
If a command is prefixed by
|--compatible||vers||The option expects a version number (format '#.##' or 'v#.##') or a revision number (format 'r#') as parameter. If set, the tools try to create BMG and KMP text files, that are compatible to the entered version of the tools. This may override other legacy options.|
|-c||--const||list||Define constant values, that are used by the internal encoders and by the numeric options as predefined global variables. This option allows a conditional encoding of text files. It can be used multiple times for multiple definitions.
The Parameter is a comma separated list of terms and a term is '
|--ct-code||Enable the CT-CODE modus.|
|--ct-dir||dir||Define a search directory for CT-CODE parts and use the internal copies only, if no valid file is found. Each file is searched without and then with extension '.bz2'. For both cases bzip2 files are detected and decompressed. Only files with correct file type are accepted.
Use this option multiple times to define more than one search directory.
|--de||Use german track and arena names.|
|-d||--dest||path||Define a destination path (directory/file). The destination
The path may contain escape sequences:
|-D||--DEST||path||Like --dest, but create the directory path automatically.|
|--domain||dom||Define a domain for option --https. The default is '
|-E||--esc||char||Define an alternative escape character for destination files. The default is '%'. For Windows batch files it is a good choice to set
|--force||The tools analyse input files and reject files with invalid data structures. If --force is set, little repairable issues are ignored and a warning is printed.
Option »--kmp force« does the same, but only for KMP files.
>>> THE RESULT MAY BE INVALID OUTPUT FILES! <<<
|--gct-addr||address||If --gct-move is active, a text section is created to manage the code handling. This section is only needed at start and is placed by default at address 0c802c0000 (good address for all 4 regions) as part of BSS. This option changes the start address of the section. If address is
|--gct-move||If a section is of type gecko code handler + cheat code, and the space for the cheat codes is too small, then make the heap smaller and move the cheat codes before the FST section. If set twice, move the cheat codes always.|
|--gct-space||size||Define the minimal space for the code part of --gct-move. This value is ignored, if it is smaller than the size of the cheat codes. This option was only implemented to test the memory allocation by --gct-move with large blocks.|

|-H||--no-header||Suppress the syntax information section in BMG text files.|

|-o||--overwrite||Overwrite already existing files without warning and ignore option --number.|
|--points||list||This patch option defines a new table for the points assigned to players after a versus or room race. The parameter is a blank or comma and slash (next row) separated list with numbers (points) between 0 and 255 and the following keywords:
|-p||--preserve||Preserve file times (atime+mtime) while converting or copying files.|
|-q||--quiet||Be quiet and print only error messages. Multiple usage is possible. The impact is command dependent.|
|-R||--region||region||If 'region' is an unsigned number, the region for online versus races and for battles is patched to the entered number. If the number is prefixed by the letter
Otherwise a keyword is expected. Official regions are: JAPAN(0), AMERICA(1), EUROPE(2), AUSTRALIA(OCEANIA,3), KOREA(4), TAIWAN(5) and
See https://wiimmfi.de/reg-list for other regions.
