Command Line

The minimum CpWizBiz requires to run is a Gamename and a System. Without these, it will not run. In the absence of others, they will be determined via the various defaults in CPWizBiz.

Examples:

cpwizbiz.exe -gm "WipEout 3" -sy "Sony PlayStation"

Boots into Wipeout3 on PlayStation, deriving the Emluator, Rig, Controller from other defaults. System specified directly.

cpwizbiz.exe -gm "WipEout 3" -dbs "[Console] Sony PlayStation"

Boots into Wipeout3 on PlayStation, deriving the Emluator, Rig, Controller from other defaults. System is derived from the FrontEnd system names map.

cpwizbiz.exe -gm "WipEout 3" -sy "Sony PlayStation" -em "PCSX-R" -dv "Psygnosis"

Boots into Wipeout3 on PlayStation using the PCSX-R emulator. Also specifies developer.

cpwizbiz.exe -gm "WipEout 3" -sy "Sony PlayStation" -im "Wipeout3.png" -tm 5000

As above, but specifying image name to look for in the image folders specified in CPWB admin menu. Also, CPWizard will display for 5 seconds then close.
