Hope that helps..

EDIT: The "rottdc" port is not the same as the project you've mentioned above.. if you've compiled that manually, you'll have to read their document for further instructions.

The shareware game data is available here:
This package seems not to be avaliable anymore. So I tried with the shareware package on the website.
Doesn`t work either when I put it into homedir.
Error message says:
Rise of the Triad Startup Version 1.4
Shareware Version
Z_INIT: 8950000 bytes
IN_Startup: Mouse Present
W_InitFiles: no files found Episode = 0
Area = 1

It doesn`t find any data files. By the way, when I unzip, I get three files. FILE_ID.DIZ, INSTALL.EXE, ROTTSW13.SHR.
Maybe we have to extract it once more???
