RCT2 For Mac?

Recommended Posts

There are instructions on the page I linked. It says you have to invoke Steam with the console enabled (by passing -console as an argument), and then type the following into the Steam console (not your shell):

download_depot 285330 285331

This should download the required files.

Pardon my ignorance.  I have no idea how to open steam with console.  How do you "pass" Steam as -console?  How do I run 

/Applications/Steam.app/Contents/MacOS/steam_osx -console

I don't code. Don't know how computers work like that.

You type this line into your shell and press enter. Note that this assumes the location of the steam executable - I assume this is where it installs by default (I don't use Mac OS) but if it's located somewhere else you should provide that path instead.

Yeah I have no idea what shell means.  Like I said, RCT isn't downloaded on Steam because it won't let me.  I do own the game though.

A shell is a program that provides a user interface to the OS ... like bash or zsh. It's also often referred to as a command line or terminal. This will be the program that runs when you start a new terminal window.

I don't use Mac OS, but according to this StackExchange post it can be found at Applications->Utilities->Terminal. This should spawn a window with a shell where you can run the above command.

Thank you.  Okay.  I opened Steam Console version, then download depot, then downloaded steamCMD. What would be the next step?  I'm looking into this unshield thing but no idea where to go from there.  Do I have to do wine?  I hear you don't have to do that anymore.  Then once I do that, I open ORCT and then asks me where to open, where do I go from there?

It sounds like a few folks are getting stuck on some parts. I've attempted a more streamlined tutorial below, which has worked for me numerous times. I hope you find it helpful!

Here we go:

  1. http://openrct2.org/downloads Install OpenRCT2 for Mac.
  2. Unpack the zip file. An application will appear, move into your "Applications" folder. I like to just rename it RCT2.
  3. http://store.steampowered.com/ Install Steam (green button at the top of the page).
  4. After you've installed the app and have created a profile, purchase RCT in the app.
  5. You'll need to open a "Console" tab in Steam that isn't normally there. To do this, search for the "Terminal" application on your Mac. Or, you can easily find it by going to the Applications Folder in a new Finder window- it will be inside the "Utilities" subfolder. Once you have Terminal open, copy and paste: 
    /Applications/Steam.app/Contents/MacOS/steam_osx -console
    
    Typically you don't need to press enter... once you paste, it should do it's thing- it will run the Steam App again, and this time you'll see "Console" as the fifth tab at the top, after your username. 
  6. In the Console tab, enter: 
    download_depot 285330 285331
    

    When the download is complete, you should get something like this:

    Depot download complete : "/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Steam/Steam.AppBundle/Steam/Contents/MacOS\steamapps\content\app_285330\depot_285331" (2525 files, manifest 6046146891100703072) 
    

    You need the section within the quotation marks. Notice how after "MacOS" the slashes change from "/" to "\".

  7. Click over to your desktop, so the top nav bar on your screen says "Finder". Select "Go", then "Go to Folder" from the drop down menu. Paste your file path that you received from Console, while also changing all your "\"s to "/"s. In this case, you would paste: 

    /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Steam/Steam.AppBundle/Steam/Contents/MacOS/steamapps/content/app_285330/depot_285331
    
  8. Your finder window should have pulled up a folder called "depot_285331". It's about 1.1 GB and has a bunch of folders in it. Copy the entire folder, and paste it into your Applications folder. I like to rename mine RCT2 to match the app from Step 2. 

  9. Run your RCT2 app! The game will ask you where it's supposed to find the files for you to play this game. In the dialog box, direct it to Applications > RCT2 (folder).

Jennyfahhh... You are amazing! Thank you so much. This is a lanquage I understand. With your steps I did it. Thank you :-)
