Realms of Arkania: Star Trail is a computer role playing game by Attic Entertainment Software based on the German RPG system Das Schwarze Auge. The original German version of the game (German title: Das Schwarze Auge: Sternenschweif) was released in 1994. Due to the success of its predecessor it was translated to English and released by Sir-Tech in the same year.

Making it work

  • patch to the latest version, if possible
  • Make sure to use the CALL DOS keyword to execute the batch file(s) in order to have the DOSBox -exit switch working.
  • Using the German keyboard layout (dosbox.conf [dos] keyboardlayout=gr) along the German language version of the game is highly recommended.
  • To prevent the 2-CD version of the game to ask for the other CD use CD images or disable CD-Audio in the options menu if your OS does not allow changing of mounted media.
  • When using CD image(s) you must use the bin/cue format, the game will not recognize the CD(s) without the audio tracks.
