Yeah, Rise of the Triad is different in that way: I'm assuming you have the retail Rise of the Triad (aka Dark War), and you installed the Dingux local pack.
If I remember correctly, the Dingux local pack only offers a shortcut to the rottsw
executable, which requires the HUNTBGIN.* from the shareware
version of Rise of the Triad.
Since you need to copy your retail
ROTT files (primarily named DARKWAR.*), you'll need to start the port with the retail exe (rott
, not rottsw
). The local pack's default Dmenu.cfg lacks this I think, so you'll have to edit it manually.
As for the other (Doom-engine based) PC ports, they should run just fine when you copy the respected game's WAD file in the directory.TERMINOLOGY
To be clear: of course by 'copying', I really mean
putting those files in the /local/ports/<rott> directory. And by directory I really do mean
a folder. Finally, edit 'it manually' refers to the DMenu cfg file you're running, which is typically located in a theme directory in /local/dmenu/themes.
