    "This is a port of Rise of the Triad for the Nintendo DS.

    This is currently a work in progress. Newest version is 0.4 (released Aug 31, 2007).

    Many thanks to GPF for porting SDL to the DS. I've built upon his work: rewriting parts of the video code, fixing a bug in the keyboard handling, and adding a mouse driver for the touchscreen.

    Recent Changes:

    * The registered version is now supported. You must supply your own DARKWAR.WAD, DARKWAR.RTL, and DARKWAR.RTC files.
    * Customize Keyboard screen now displays names of DS controls, for easier remapping.
    * Note: I made a minor change to the default control mapping; delete your CONFIG.ROT file and the game will auto-generate a new one.


    * Sound and Music do not currently work.
    * No network support."


    1. Make sure you have a Nintendo DS capable of running homebrew code
    2. Patch the .NDS file with the correct DLDI for your card
    3. Copy the .NDS file to your card
    4. Extract the data files to the root of your card (should create a /rott directory)
    5. Play!


    * D-Pad to move forward/back and turn
    * L and R shoulder buttons to strafe
    * A to fire
    * B to use / open doors
