Mod Injector

Until this game supports mods natively we have to use code injection.

  1. Switch to desktop mode
  2. Download BepInEx 6[builds.bepinex.dev] (scroll down to the Artifacts section). Use ‘BepInEx_UnityMono_x64…’ version.
  3. Extract the zip-file in the game folder. If you installed the game on the internal drive it should be in
    ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Dinkum

    In order to see the hidden ‘.steam’ folder in your home directory you need to press CTRL+H to show hidden files. Alternatively you can also click on the three bars in the top right and select ‘Show Hidden Files’.

    On the SD-Card the path should look something like this:

    /run/media/mmcblk0p1/steamapps/common/Dinkum
  4. In Steam right click the game, select ‘properties’ and change the launch options to
    WINEDLLOVERRIDES='winhttp.dll=n,b' %command%
  5. Start the game once to generate the needed files.
  6. Now there should be a folder called ‘plugins’ in your ‘Dinkum/BepInEx’ folder you extracted earlier. Copy the mods dll files into this folder.
  7. Now you can return to gaming mode and start the game.
