RCT1 Scenarios to RCT2

Recommended Posts

So I hear that having RCT1 save data allows you to import the scenarios and assets into OpenRCT2. I have an old retail copy of RCT2 and bought RCT1 Deluxe on Steam, so the data is in two completely separate places. I'd like to play the RCT1 scenarios in OpenRCT2 to have the benefits of RCT2's building mechanics (particularly Loopy Landscapes), and I hear that OpenRCT2 has a cheat that allows one to charge both entry and ride fees (seriously, that's one of the big things that hurts RCT2 immensely as well as Loopy Landscapes; can't stand guests who don't pay a cent when they enter my park).

So how do I go about doing this?

OpenRCT2 should detect RCT1 automatically if you installed it in the default location. Otherwise, in the options, you can set the path to your RCT1 installation (for steam, use the RCT_install directory inside the RCT directory).

Well, I found out that option and followed your instructions. But the RCT scenarios page is blank.

For context, the folder I have for my steam version of Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 deluxe is "RCTdeluxe_install". inside the RollerCoaster Tycoon Deluxe directory. Not sure if this detail is significant.

Have you tried restarting OpenRCT2 after selecting the RCTdeluxe_install directory?

Selecting the install directory only makes a difference for the RCT1-imported edge styles, scenarios should show up either way.
