This game runs excellent with and without the expansion packs. If you're running without expansion packs, download the patch to fix graphical bugs (not needed with expansion packs).
Requires No-CD crack to run
Game runs fine with expansion park Soaked/Wild but install in order.
Emulated virtual desktop is not required and runs fine on full screen.
What does not
Background music doesn't play, however this does not effect the game at all or the games audio.
What was not tested
Warning: Do not install patches if you want to install expansion packs after on.

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:
