What works

Short summary:

  • Installation (via autorun.exe, directly executing setup.exe didn't do anything).
  • Videos (sometimes there are colour errors due to the low bit rate, but then the game is older and I don't remember how it looked under Windows).
  • Single player gaming.
  • Sound
As far as I can tell, everything works with Wine 1.1.24 out of the box, no special settings are applied. Video accelerator is a ATI Radeon R300 chip.

Additional Comments

Two notes though: 1. You NEED the 1.05 patch for RT2. Can be found at for example. 2. You MUST cd into the installation directory, otherwise RT2 will complain, that it can't find a file. If the game should complain about NT incompatibility (depends on the version of RT2 you own), then you need winecfg after all and will be required to use the Windows 98 setting. But as this is not the case for me, it's Platinum on my machine(s).

Not supported on Windows NT
by Magie Straal on Saturday November 8th 2008, 10:49
I get the following message when I start RailRoad Tycoon:
Sorry, not supported on Windows NT.

I try to run rt2.exe in Windows NT compatibility mode, but it still failed.

Does somebody run RailRoad Tycoon on 1.1.8 (Ubuntu 8.04)?
