What are the options for opening TrueCrypt FILES in Fedora?

I read about cryptsetup and tcplay, but they seem to be made for TC devices instead of files.

There also is realcrypt from RPMFusion, but it's not present in the F22 repo, so I guess they discontinued it.

What are the other options to open a TrueCrypt-created file?

Cryptsetup can work with a loopback file; ie, a file representing a filesystem. To make a file “look like” a block device, you can use losetup — I'm not familiar with this TrueCrypt and tcplay, but perhaps that might help? (FWIW, in Gnome Disks, on the application (top bar) menu, you can “Attach disk image” to do much the same thing.)
