KSP Command Line Parameters?

Question

Does KSP take command line parameters? (Windows, if that matters)

If so, what are all the arguments I can supply?

-popupwindow Enables full screen window mode. "Full Screen" option in graphics settings must be disabled for this to work. This option is also available through the KSP launcher settings. [1]
-single-instance Only allows one instance of KSP. When attempting to launch another instance of KSP, existing instance will become active window. [2]
-adapter Changes preferred monitor for full screen or full screen window. Example: "-adapter 2" [3]
-force-opengl Forces KSP to use openGL [4]
-force-d3d9 Forces KSP to use DirectX9 [2]
-force-d3d11 Forces KSP to use DirectX11
-nolog [2]

Thanks for this. Is it possible to supply an argument that will specify a save game that it will load automatically and bypass the opening menu?

Not that I’m aware of, but there is a mod (QuickStart) for exactly that:

Short answer: No.  Sorry. 

Longer answer: The command line arguments are actually for Unity, not KSP per se.  They direct some aspects of the Unity player but are not visible to the game...

I know there was some discussion in the Unity community about creating some sort of API to pass custom command line arguments along but I don't think the feature has been implemented.  Squad has zippo control over that.
