What does not
What was not tested
Run the game once in a Wine virtual desktop to set up the graphics settings. After the first run, edit the options.txt file in Documents/AppData/Atari/RCT3 to set the resolution of your monitor. Then you can run the game without a Wine virtual desktop in full screen mode flawlessly. The background music can be fixed by converting all of the .wma files into .mp3 files with Audacity or a similar program.

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:
