Selected Test Results

What works

Installation, gameplay.

What does not

There seem to be issues with the following:

  • Lighting - produces 'spots' on the ground textures at daytime. Objects and people aren't lit properly and seem darker than the ambient light and scenery.
  • User Interface - appears milky, EXCEPT when in the vicinity of a rollercoaster. Adjusting the path detail level in the settings window seems to affect this. HOWEVER, when there is no ride in your park, the user interface will remain milky, or even white, at all times.
  • When playing with the original CD the game won't recognize it and prompt you to insert the original. This makes a no-CD patch necessary.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Further gameplay, as the milky user-interface prohibited me from playing effectively (couldn't see what I was working with).

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

This was using the Vanilla install off the release CD. Update 1, 2, or 3 have not been applied. A no-CD patch has been used (as it won't recognize the original CD).

HowTo / Notes

How-to: Install Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 on ubuntu with an nvidia optimus enabled graphics card

This is a how-to I posted over on shyguy's world on installing RCT3 when you have an nvidia optimus enabled graphics card.

 

Link to How-to

Get background music/menu music etc. working

Posted by Sander on Friday March 2nd 2012, 18:20
MP3 background music works fine.
Convert all music in /Atari/RollerCoaster Tycoon 3/Music/ to mp3 using ffmpeg. Then replace .wma with .mp3 in MusicGenre.txt

Enjoy :)


I will post a more in depth how to tomorrow when i have time.

however i did do a quick test with summerair.wma which is the default music and it seemed to work.

ATI Video Cards with closed drivers

If you use an ATI card and the closed source drivers, make sure you have at least 11.6, else you will see crashes.
Mac Support

Please note that improving Mac Compatibility for RCT3 is taking a back burner as this game has now been released as a native Mac application as seen here:
