OpenRCT2

Recommended Posts

While I do have a computer that will run OpenRCT, my XP machine, ironically enough, has better specs, and I thought I'd give it a go. I recently downloaded the most recent 32 bit installer (not the launcher) and attempted to install and run OpenRCT on Windows XP SP2. After installation (which went just fine), I get a critical stop error when attempting to run the application, stating that OpenRCT is not a 32 bit program.

Is there some trickery I can try to get this to run, or am I out of luck on this?

Windows XP is becoming a more vulnerable system by the day. You should definitely consider upgrading to an OS that is being maintained.

OpenRCT2 does not support windows XP anymore. You need to download version 0.0.3 for that to work.

Okay, I'll give that a go, then.

This is not my workhorse machine, but rather a 'childhood fantasy come to life' retro gaming rig designed specifically to run XP. I am aware of the risks, and I don't have any personal or important data on it. I do appreciate your concern, however.

 

Thank you both for your helpful and timely replies!
