Anyone Wanna Play Rise of the Triad?

Sun Aug 05, 2012 4:41 pm

I saw that Rise of the Triad is getting a remake, so I downloaded the linux port source code and compiled it. Here is a tar.gz file containing the shareware files. There is a second folder containing the binary for the retail version however the retail versions wad files are not included. I have also included the source code that contains the readme with the appropriate credits.


You must:
modprobe snd_bcm2835 #should be in your .bash_profile anyways
apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2 xorg

in the shareware folder run:
startx ./rott

for the full version go inside the darkwar folder and run(requires wad files):
startx ./rott_darkwar

It was much better multiplayer deathmatch than single player - some of the weapons were awesome compared to Doom - drunken missile anyone ;)

Looks like it is missing the WAD files to run the game, which are basically the map files. Without WADs, you have no game.
Google is a helluva drug.
