For Linux users - Run the game using DosBox
by Maik Wagner on Monday February 8th 2010, 10:36
The download indicated on this website actually points to the Windows version with two intro videos. The game itself (which is a DOS version of "Railroad Tycoon Deluxe") is emulated using the Windows port of the DosBox emulator (www.dosbox.com/). This Windows port didn't work for me but there is a also a Linux version of DosBox available you can use to run "Railroad Tycoon".
As for Mandriva Linux there is a binary od DosBox in the PLF repositories - Ubuntu and other distribution should have DosBox available as well in their respective repositories. It is a fairly common application.
After starting DosBox one needs to mount the directory as Drive C in DosBox. This is done with the following command
mount c /home/insertyourlinuxusernamehere/.wine/drive_c
You can then change to the C-drive by entering
in DosBox. You can then navigate through the directory tree using
and display the contents of a directory using
Navigate into the "SIDMEI~1" game directory in the "2KGAME~1" directory and run "RRT.EXE" from there by typing "RRT". The game should now start up okay.
Note: You can switch Dosbox to fullscreen by pressing "Alt+Enter". If you are asked for copy protection there is a PDF manual in the "manual" folder in Linux.
