Additional Comments

Not totally sure what goes wrong, the intro plays but after that when it should cut to the main menu it just closes and returns to my desktop.

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

C:

in DosBox. You can then navigate through the directory tree using

cd directory-name

and display the contents of a directory using

dir

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.
