STAR WARS™: Dark Forces – How to Run the Game Using Linux + Download DOSBox 1 - steamlists.com

Quick guide on runnin the game on Linux. This will work on Steam Deck as well btw (unless youre some kind of FREAK using a different OS than the one it ships with)
 
 

Download DOSBox

Get it from your package manager.
 
 
On Gentoo, use
 
# emerge -a games-emulation/dosbox-staging
 
 
On Arch/BTW, use
 
# pacman -S dosbox
 
 
But I recommend DOSBox staging, as it is more modern. That is available from the AUR
 
 
 

Edit Launch Options

Right click game in Steam Library -> Properties -> Launch Options, type dis in:
 
 
echo %command% > /dev/null && cd Game && dosbox DARK.EXE
 
 
 

That’s it bud!

For more on DOSBox, check here: https://www.dosbox.com/ – [dosbox.com] 
 
 
I recommend changing your DOSBox config to have mouse capture, you can find your config in ~/.config/dosbox/
 
 
The config file will have information on each setting, so you can check there.
 
 
Enjoy!
