-language X

(where X is one of: english, german, french, italian, spanish, 
portuguese, japanese, korean, tchinese ...right now it's always 
defaulting to English, but a future build will try to make an 
intelligent choice based on environment variables.)

This changes the language the game's text appears in.


Makes the game windowed, instead of fullscreen.


Try to force or disable sync to vblank. Prevents tearing, if your video 
card can keep up. If your framerate is bad, tearing might be an 
acceptable tradeoff.


Disable music.


Reduce rendering to half...makes game look worse, but could make a big 
performance difference on slower GPUs.


Try to keep the framerate at 60/30/20/15 frames per second. Might be 
useful on a slower machine to try to push the system less at a tradeoff 
of less responsiveness and smoothness of animation.

-width X
-height Y

Specify size of window (or fullscreen resolution). -width 1024 -height 
768 will make a 1024x768 window.

...there are a few others, but those should cover what most people care
