Rally Trophy

Getting Rally Trophy to run on Windows 8

Rally Trophy by BugBear Entertainment and JoWooD Productions is the best rally driving simulation I have ever played. These days it is available as a free download on oldpcgaming.net. You can run the game in Windows XP compatibility mode.

Note that in order to be able to configure the joystick and keyboard controls, you need to install Microsoft DirectInput Mapper.

There is a code to unlock all cars, tracks, and modes. Just enter KALJAKOPPA as your name in the game menu. It will clear the name and then you can enter your normal player name.

I didn’t manage to get it to work under GNU/Linux using Wine. Also I haven’t looked into the modifications available for it.



One can get the modifications running using the RTBZFManager.exe tool. Note that you need to configure the program to run in Windows XP compatibility mode otherwise it will silently fail to install game modifications. Also you need to change the settings so that it will export modifications to the data folder. For example:

C:\Program Files (x86)\JoWooD\Rally Trophy\Data

Now if you for example install the VW Käfer RTP file, it should create a folder named car_3 next to the car_3.bzf file in the Data\Cars folder.

Another distinct looking car is the Citroën DS3.

In terms of handling the Peugeot 206 is great fun.

Another really responsive car to drive is the Porsche 911.
