Step 1. Download Dark Forces Configuration Utility
Get Mouselook Utility from DF-21

DOWNLOAD IT HERE ---> Dark Forces Mouselook Utility[df-21.net] .

Important: Make sure you exit the game before you run the program!

Launching with Steam or GOG Galaxy

If you have STEAM or GOG , simply open the zip and launch DFORCEDH.EXE

Launching with Origin, another store or standalone

If you have Origin or a standalone Dark Forces installation, place DFORCEDH.EXE in the same folder where DARK.EXE is located. (Ex: C:\Games\Dark Forces\DARK.EXE) and launch it.
Step 2: Run The Mouselook Utility
You will see a popup asking you to choose a store.


  1. If you have Steam choose Steam
  2. If you have GOG Galaxy choose GOG Galaxy
  3. If you have launched DFORCEDH.EXE from another directory choose Current Folder

If this is the first time you are running the Mouselook Utility you will see three options.



  1. If you just want the setup done automatically choose the Recommended option .
  2. If you want it automated but make your own tweaks select the Middle option.
  3. If you want to configure everything yourself choose the third Advanced option .

YOU ARE DONE!

It should look like this now.


Go play Dark Forces and Enjoy =)

With this method, you need to set the desired controls again each time you launch through Steam, but it's a very quick and easy thing to do so it should be fine until a proper fix is made.

@leech You may have found a solution already, but the solution I found today was that by editing the game's Dosbox.conf and boxtron_32400_<hash>.conf by putting dforcedh.exe in the line before wherever dark.exe was found. I made a pastebin to demonstrate what I did: https://pastebin.com/qFtvMxk2

This brings up DForceDH each time you launch the game. Make the control changes you are happy with and/or select the exit option (but don't close dosbox itself) and then the actual game will run.

According to the readme, these can be found either at ~/.dosbox or in the game's local directory.
