Can't select RCT classic when OpenRCT2 first launches

Recommended Posts

So I downloaded RCT Classic from Steam. I saw someone saying on a website it works with OpenRCT2 as well... But when I open OpenRCT2, I need to select where the game is and I can't open it...

Don’t select the executable itself, select the folder that contains it ('RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic'). Assuming the data structure of RCTC is the same as RCT2, that should work perfectly. If not, go to issue tracker (github) > wiki > required RCT2 files and copy the required files to OpenRCT2 directory.

When I select the folder it won't work either.

And I'm on githhub now but I can't find the required files. Am I on the right website?

That’s the right website, just click OpenRCT2/OpenRCT2 - Required RCT2 files and scroll down to RCT Classic. I don’t know the exact file structure of RCTC so other than mimicking the RCT2 structure, I don’t know how to make it work. Someone else gotta help with that, or try some things yourself.

So I downloaded these links with the green button, put them in the map "OpenRCT2" and it still won't work...370765564_Schermafbeelding2018-07-30om11_21_29.thumb.png.5c4a8e81049b20225e53c9b605bcc519.png

I don't know what to do to just play rctc with openrct2...

Did I do something wrong?

Thank you in advance!

You need to rearrange some files if you have RCT Classic.

Create a new folder somewhere on your harddisk. In this example I called it "RCTC Harvest".

In this folder, create the following subfolders:

  • Data
  • ObjData
  • Tracks

Now copy the following files over:

  • g1.dat to Data
  • *.pob to ObjData
  • *.td6 to Tracks

Now you should be able to start OpenRCT2 and point it to the RCTC Harvest folder.

Okay now the game works but I still have one little problem.

The scenery, paths etc are missing. I only see people and tracks without trains...

How do I get this right?

I also have no *.pob files... only a lot of .dat and td6 files...

Thank you in advance!

That screenshot clearly shows that the game objects weren't copied over properly. Copy the *.dat files to the ObjData folder (I have never heard of *.pob files).

They are object files. RCT Classic uses a different extension.

@jensj12 RCT Classic uses the .POB extensions for objects. They are the same as .DAT files (unlike the scenarios and saves, which are quite different from their RCT2 counterparts).

 

@Jordi : would you be able to provide me with a directory listing of your RCT Classic installation? A screenshot would also suffice, as long as I can see which files are residing in the `.app`.
