This is a tutorial to install and play Rayman 1 (the greatest jump'n'run game ever) using DosBox on Ubuntu.
- Copy the contents of the Rayman CD to a folder on your computer, e.g.
$ cp -Rv /media/cdrom /opt/games/RaymanCD
- Install DosBox
$ sudo apt-get install dosbox
- In your dosbox.conf (Usually in ~/.dosbox/dosbox-<version>.conf) set the keyboard layout option to your keyboard layout code (e.g. sg for swiss german layout)
- Create a new folder for the Rayman installation, e.g.
$ mkdir /opt/games/Rayman
- Issue the following command in your terminal:
dosbox -noautoexec \ -c 'mount c /opt/games/Rayman -freesize 100' \ -c 'mount -t cdrom r /opt/games/RaymanCD' \ -c 'r:' \ -c 'install.bat'
- Install Rayman (don't forget to let the setup auto-recognize your soundcard). After the setup, don't play the game, just exit the menu and close the DosBox window.
- Put a new file called rayman.sh somewhere on your computer (e.g. on your Desktop)
- Add the following lines to the freshly created file:
#!/bin/bash dosbox -noautoexec \ -c 'mount c /opt/games/Rayman -freesize 100' \ -c 'mount -t cdrom r /opt/games/RaymanCD' \ -c 'c:' \ -c 'rayman.bat'
- Make the file executable:
$ chmod +x rayman.sh
Done, now you can start Rayman at any time by executing the rayman.sh file. If the gameplay is too fast, change the frequency to 50.
