Linux iconInstall OpenRCT2 on NixOS - Quickstart Guide

Install OpenRCT2

The installation is currently based on your nixpkgs-channel. If you're using the unstable channel, just install the package.

nix-env -iA nixos.openrct2

If you're on an stable channel (like 17.09 or older) you can install this single package from the unstable channel.

nix-env -f https://github.com/NixOS/nixpkgs-channels/archive/nixos-unstable.tar.gz -iA openrct2

Alternatively you can build the expression from the nixpkgs.

Select your RCT2 game files location

When OpenRCT2 first launches, you will be prompted to select the directory where you installed RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. You can also set the RCT2 path from the command line should you wish - use the command below.

openrct2 set-rct2 /path/to/rct2-install
