You are part of an elite group of operatives called HUNT (High-risk United Nations Taskforce), and you must stop a maniac cult leader from killing millions of people. While scouting a remote island, you are suddenly surrounded by enemy troops with guns blaring. In the distance you see your boat - your only chance to escape - blown to matchsticks. In front of you is a huge fortress monastery, and your only chance to stop the madness.
You are equipped with awesome, high-tech weaponry like heat-seeking missiles, split missiles and the Flamewall cannon, which leaves a trail of charred skeletons in its wake. It's your assignment to annihilate and destroy - to ensure peace on Earth.
Rise of the Triad: Dark War uses DOSBox v0.72. Like most other DOSBox releases on GOG, a separate tool, "Graphics mode setup," is also included.

Patches and modifications
Rise of the Triad is patched to the latest official version, 1.3
Many source ports for Rise of the Triad exist. At the ROTT HQ, a list of source ports is available.
Since this release uses DOSBox, it is advised to read through our entry on DOSBox for general troubleshooting.
Since GOG tends to utilize years-old DOSBox settings standards, several issues permeate through their DOS releases. Skipping audio is among them. Though there is no universal solution for this issue, adjusting several settings in the [mixer] section of a DOSBox configuration file helps alleviate most problems.
Open the DOSBox .CONF file in the game's folder with a text editor and edit the values under [mixer] to the following:
[mixer] nosound=false rate=44100 blocksize=1024 prebuffer=50
A common solution to this is changing the DOSBox graphical output. Run the "Graphics Mode setup" program in the game's folder and try out the options until one suits your preferences.
Adjusting cycles (CTRL-F12 to increase; CTRL-F11 to decrease) is another method.
