Am I the only one who thinks Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 was best (with the expansions, of course)?

Nope, RCT 1 was better. While 2 added plenty of great things, many of the small changes (such as how the land tools/etc worked) got worse.

RC2 was exactly the same game w/ tons more scenery objects and new rrides. The only pitfall of the second one was that lots of the scenarios already have half built parks. 1st one let you start from scratch more often.

I remember in the first game, one of the scenarios gave you infinite money and a huge ass sandy landscape to build rides. I had over 40 roller coasters by the end... If only I can get that save file off of my Pentium 1 machine back at my folk's home... I'd play it again.

I played through all the original parks as a kid and am currently halfway through corkscrew follies. It's fantastic!

I don't care what anyone says... RCT is still a beautifully crafted game.

Dang. So I downloaded it, but I can't even get the game to start correctly. As soon as I launch it, my screen starts flickering mad crazy. It's almost as if I'm hitting alt-tabbing out (ctrl-tab? lol) between my desktop and the game. wth? I updated my video drivers, and it's still doing it like crazy.

This is on my Thinkpad T410 with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. Anyone have any ideas? I tried compatibility mode, run as admin, and nothing has worked. Frown

If you have problems running it in Windows 8, it runs perfectly in Windows XP Compatibility Mode.

According to the RCT wiki... the answer is no.

Quote :
If you want to play RollerCoaster Tycoon in a widescreen resolution, you will need to edit the RCT.exe with a Hex Editor [1] (create a backup first!). You need to search for these two hex values: "58 02 00 00 68 20 03 00 00" and "20 03 00 00 c7 45 f4 58 02 00 00". In both of them you have to change 20 03 to the new width and 58 02 to the new height. In the game, you need to switch to Fullscreen 800x600 in the options menu, as that is the resolution you customized with this method.
Working ResolutionsEdit

1280 x 720 (16:9): Change 20 03 to 00 05, 58 02 to d0 02.
1280 x 768 (15:9): Change 20 03 to 00 05, 58 02 to 00 03.
1280 x 1024 (5:4): Change 20 03 to 00 05, 58 02 to 00 04.

Higher resolutions won't work, though lower resolutions should be possible. Ensure that the wanted resolution is compatible with your video card settings, otherwise it will be set to 640x480.

The hexadecimal values are calculated by converting the width or height number from decimal to hex, then inverting the order of the bytes. For example, 720 in decimal is 2D0 in hex (this can be converted with the Windows calculator in scientific mode). Adding a zero to the left we get two bytes, 02 D0. Inverting the order we get d0 02.

Another example: 800 (decimal) -> 320 (hex) -> 03 20 -> 20 03 which is the width value to be changed from the 800x600 resolution.
