The game itself works, creating rides, etc etc. I installed the original version plus Soaked and Wild. The game won't run on a resolution bigger than 1280x1024, but unsure if this is also true for the game under Windows.
What does not
Ingame and/or background music.
What was not tested
Installed allfonts with winetricks, also quartz, but unsure if that is even required for it to run.

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

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
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.
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:
