I downloaded Exult from the Software Manager and tried to run it from the CD and then by copying the games "The Black Gate" and "Serpent Isle" from the Ultima 7 folder to my hard drive. I tried locating the games in both the usr/share/games folder and the Home folder without success.
When I start Exult I get the following message:
Could not find the static data for either "The Black Gate" or "Serpent Isle".
Please edit the configuration file and restart Exult.
Unfortunately the Exult website doesn't give much information on how to do this. It does give an example of how the file should be edited:
Code: Select all
<config> <disk> <data_path> /usr/local/share/exult </data_path> <game> <gamename> <path> /usr/local/share/exult/gamename </path> <static_path> /usr/local/share/exult/gamename/static </static_path> <savegame_path> $HOME/.exult/gamename </savegame_path> <gamedat_path> $HOME/.exult/gamename/gamedat </gamedat_path> <mods> /usr/local/share/exult/gamename/mods </mods> <patch> /usr/local/share/exult/gamename/patch </patch> </gamename>
I tried using DosBox as well but that was just as confusing.
