  1. Your university's wifi will most likely not give you an IP address that your friend can reach. That means you have two options: If your friend has control over their internet connection (i.e. it's not a university network or something like that), they can set up the server and have to open the appropriate port in the firewall (by default, OpenRCT2 uses TCP port 11753). If your friend does not have control over their internet connection, you will need to use software like Hamachi to create a VPN between the two of you, which will effectively create a LAN. Then either of you can host the server. Starting a server is easy: you just open the Multiplayer window and click “Start server”.
  2. Welcome, Erik! Now, I was somewhat active in RCT2 forums in the mid-00's, but I don't think I have seen that Titanic scenario. I'm sure many other people around here haven't seen it. (Heck, I'm sure there are people around here that were barely born back then.) Perhaps a good idea to share the scenario here?
  3. You mean the OpenRCT2 project as a whole? That would be _very_ wrong. The intention was to extend RCT2 capabilities, in the way of more features and compatibility with modern (desktop) operating systems. Talk about a different UI has only been mentioned as something that an outside contributor could pick up. The whole port was more or less a proof of concept, with the potential to work it out into something playable. The Android builds started failing at some point - we haven't intentionally retired them. In general, we have too little time for the game as it is. There is still a lot we want to work on that concerns the game itself - that would need to be finished before shifting the focus to projects like this one.
  4. Cheats like those have been in the game for a few years...
  5. It looks like your save become corrupted. Try checking your autosave dir to save if you have any copies of it (tip: copy the autosave directory first, that avoids overwriting them).
  6. Also: which version of OpenRCT2 are you running?
  7. We could have a plug-in or built-in option for better physics later on, in the same way that OpenTTD has (though RCT's physics are _perfect_, compared to those of Transport Tycoon, so OpenTTD really _needed_ one). As Jens pointed out, there are too many parks and roller coaster designs out there that would break if we meddled with the physics.
  8. OK, if those are all the files in that folder, you're indeed missing all of the music files, since that is put in css3.dat through css46.dat. Since you have the CD version, I think you have done a "Minimum" install. Please reinstall RCT2 and make sure you choose to do the full install.
  9. Which version have you installed? If it's the 0.2.3 release build: it contains a bug that stops it from working on macOS. Please update to the latest development build and try again.
  10. Can you give me a listing of the "Data" folder of your RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 installation, including file sizes?
  11. Erm, that's not what the dialog is telling you at all. Traditionally, EVERY app can listen for all keyboard input events. That doesn't mean that all apps do so, it just means they can if they wanted to. Of course, this is a security risk (you already mentioned keylogging), so it seems Apple is now clamping down on this functionality. For OpenRCT2, this is fine: we don't listen to keystrokes not directly sent to us. But some programs do: any program that can be controlled while not in focus needs this kind of functionality. (8 cars per trainer and similar programs are examples.) That is why you have this dialog: to enable this functionality for apps that need it. Again, OpenRCT2 should not need this, so you can just leave the box unticked.
  12. Try setting the `drawing_engine` setting in config.ini to `SOFTWARE`.
  13. This should have been fixed in the meantime - can you verify that?
  14. If you have a park that will consistently cause this crash, please upload it. Assertion errors are usually the game's fault, so I don't think it's your laptop just yet.
  15. A fix has just been pushed. The next build should contain the fix.
  16. A fix has just been pushed. Fixed builds should be available in an hour.
  17. This is something that we (the developers) have to fix - there is a bug in the code. In the meantime, you're probably better off switching to the release build.
  18. Oh, don't beat yourself up for that. I don't mind "stupid posts" too much, as long as the author stays civil.
  19. Can You Please Stop Typing Like This? It's annoying to read. Secondly: you're asking a question that gets asked several times a week. Always search a forum to see if someone else also asked the same question. Thirdly: if you want help to prevent your anti-virus from blocking OpenRCT2, at the very least you'll need to provide the name of your anti-virus program.
  20. This question gets asked multiple times a week, so yes, other people do have that problem. "Heuristics" means that your antivirus cannot find any particular virus, but somehow doesn't trust it. The only workaround is telling your AV that the file is file and it should execute it anyway. (Of course, switching to another antivirus program will also help, but that's probably not the first thing you want to try.)
  21. The lighting effects are quite buggy unfortunately. (It's why we labelled them experimental) If you check the option "FPS tonen", OpenRC2 will show the framerate at the top of the screen. What framerate does it show for, say, Six Flags over Texas? And what is your screen resolution? Do you use window scaling in OpenRCT2 (it's toggled by "Vergrotingsfactor"). Finally: it could be that setting the rendering mode to just "Software" (as opposed to "Software, omgeleid via hardware") will net you a few extra FPS. The latter mode is mostly there to support lighting effects and make capturing the screen easier.
  22. How odd. Your specs exceed the minimum by a very large margin, as even very modest computers should be able to run it. What render mode is the game set to? If it's OpenGL, try changing it to software rendering. (macOS' OpenGL support is a disgrace.) Also, you didn't specify which version of macOS you have. We'll need to know that.
  23. If you click "Abort", does it then ask you if you want to report the crash?
  24. Click "yes". It will automatically report the crash to our systems.
  25. The file (scores.dat) is still there, but simply not read by OpenRCT2. What you can try is find scores.dat in your RCT2 directory and copy it to the folder that contains your OpenRCT2 settings (Documents\OpenRCT2 on Windows). If that doesn't work, copy it again and rename the highscores.dat file to highscores.bak before you start OpenRCT2.
