Mineways Command Line Options

mineways.exe [-w X Y] [-s UserSaveDirectory] [-l mineways_exec.log] [file1.mwscript [file2.mwscript [...]]]

Specify the file name and path for a script or model file to load on startup.

-w X Y
Specify the X and Y resolution in pixels of the startup window. Values must be positive integers.

-s UserSaveDirectory
Specify the directory where your Minecraft worlds are located, shown in the "File | Open World" list. This directory is "%appdata%\.minecraft\saves" by default, if not specified. The directory is not a single world's save folder, but rather a directory holding all world folders you want to choose from. If your directory path has spaces in it, you need to use double-quotes around the path, e.g. -s "C:\temp\My Minecraft Saves"

-l mineways_exec.log
For debugging startup problems, you'll normally never use this. Saves startup and commands executed to the file specified.
