Realms of Arkania: Shadows over Riva is a computer role playing game based on the German RPG system Das Schwarze Auge by Attic Entertainment Software.

Making it work

  • 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 mandatory: one of the puzzles requires the player to type the character "Ä".
