Contents

Windows

  1. Download the latest version of Rigs of Rods here
  2. When you're done downloading the setup file, find the RoR set up file.
  3. Open the installer and accept the agreement if you accept the terms.
  4. RoR installs a shortcut to your start menu for your convenience.
  5. It is wise to configure RoR before playing with the configurator. If you are unsure how your system performs, it is wise to start with low performance and work your way up until you have an acceptable framerate.

Also, you may wish to visit the Game Support Board if you are having issues.


Linux

(In bad need of updating by someone familiar with Linux installations)

<To install RoR in Linux you need to install some specific libraries which need to be downloaded prior to install:

Simply extract the file to anywhere you wish. If you want to install settings in your home folder (if you installed it somewhere in the system where you don't normally have permissions):

mkdir -p ~/.rigsofrods/packs
touch ~/.rigsofrods/{RoR.cfg,ogre.cfg,RoR.log}

Rigs of Rods will now read/write to those files. If RoR does not seem to be taking the values from your home directory, simply symlink the configuration files in ~/.rigsofrods to your RoR directory.

ln -s ~/.rigsofrods/RoR.cfg /<RoR-dir>/RoR.cfg
ln -s ~/.rigsofrods/ogre.cfg /<RoR-dir>/ogre.cfg

Ubuntu/Debian

  1. The above library packages will successfully install through Synaptic Package Manager in Karmic Koala.
  2. Add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list: deb http://apt.rigsofrods.com/ /
  3. Refresh package list
  4. Install the rigsofrods packages
    1. rigsofrods [REQUIRED]
    2. rigsofrods-data [REQUIRED]
    3. rigsofrods-wx - This package includes non-unicode wxWidgets. If you are unsure, include this file.
    4. rigsofrods-addon - Extra vehicles and terrains
  5. Notes:
    1. Commands are executed from the RoR directory
    2. If libtiff is broken, symlink to libtiff.so.3:
      ln -s /usr/lib/libtiff.so.4 libtiff.so.3
    3. If libopenal is broken, or you do not have any sound, symlink to libopenal.so.1 (delete libopenal.so from your RoR directory)
      rm libopenal.so.1; ln -s /usr/lib/libopenal.so.0 libopenal.so.1

If you want to install settings in your home folder (if you installed it somewhere in the system where you don't normally have permissions):

mkdir -p ~/.rigsofrods/packs
touch ~/.rigsofrods/{RoR.cfg,ogre.cfg,RoR.log}

Rigs of Rods will now read/write to those files. If RoR does not seem to be taking the values from your home directory, simply symlink the configuration files in ~/.rigsofrods to your RoR directory:

ln -s ~/.rigsofrods/RoR.cfg /usr/share/games/rigsofrods/RoR.cfg
ln -s ~/.rigsofrods/ogre.cfg /usr/share/games/rigsofrods/ogre.cfg

You can start RoR by using RoR or RoRConfig from the command line.

[ebuild   N   ] media-libs/devil-1.6.7-r2  USE="X gif jpeg opengl png sdl tiff -allegro -mng -xpm" 0 kB 
[ebuild   N   ] dev-libs/zziplib-0.13.49  USE="sdl" 0 kB 
[ebuild   N   ] media-gfx/nvidia-cg-toolkit-2.0.0010  0 kB 
[ebuild   N   ] x11-libs/wxGTK-2.8.7.1-r1  USE="X opengl sdl -debug -doc -gnome -gstreamer -odbc -pch" 0 kB

then install:

emerge nvidia-cg-toolkit zziplib devil wxGTK -av
