Using Parameters

There is two ways to use parameters, the first is to create or edit a shortcut and add the parameters to it, the second is to use the Start -> Run feature of windows and add them there. In both scenarios the path to original war should be in quotes "PATH" and the parameters should follow with a space between each.
