For example, how does one specify:

bzflag -directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\BZFlag2.X\data"

On Windows, it is read as

-directory
"C:\program
files
(x86)\bzflag2.0.10\data"

and gives "Unexpected: files. Server must go after all options" error.

    the bzflag client has never supported command line options with spaces so this is not new. Will look into it after the release.
    The windows client does a good job of finding its fonts so this option is rarely applied on that platform.
