What works

Installing the (full version of the) game. Running the game. Sound works perfectly and graphics are fine (until you save/load). Full-screen in a virtual desktop works.

What does not

When one saves or loads, the game inverts its colors until it either is restarted or has its resolution changed.

In addition, an error will occasionally occur when attempting to exit the game (via the in-game menu) and the game will crash.


What was not tested

Fullscreen or windowed mode in a non-virtual desktop. Playing for an extended period of time. Various visibility settings.

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

I would have given it platinum had it not been for the color issues. One's parks can get very large in this game and saving/loading is a necessity, meaning that it's nigh-unplayable later on unless one knows the workaround: changing the game's resolution (through the in-game options) reverts the colors to normal temporarily (thanks to James Donley for this fix).
