How do I extract RCT1 files to OpenRCT2?


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have tried to extract RCT1 scenarios to OpenRCT2. I downloaded all re-made scenarios, saved the map under my downloads and then tried to convert them into OpenRCT2. When I press "OK" it tells me there are no RCT1 files in the map. So what should I do or what am I doing wrong?

The RCT1 files are meant for the RCT1 game, which you do not have. Since you only have scenarios, simply put them in your OpenRCT2 scenario folder.

Could you tell me how I do this? Or show me with some pictures? I don't know where to find the OpenRCT2 scenario folder. My laptop uses winRAR so maybe this is why. Also, I bought the RCT1 game through Stream so if that makes it any easier just let me know. I'm really bad with computers

It seems you have the RCT1 scenarios twice, then:
1. The screenshot shows recreations (made for people who don’t own RCT1)
2. You bought RCT1 on Steam.

Using a real RCT1 is always better, because it gives you much more than just scenarios. You will need to link RCT1. You can do that as follows:

  1. Open the Options window (see the top right of the title screen)
  2. Go to the “Advanced” tab (the one with the spanner)
  3. At the bottom, there is an option to set the RCT1 path. Click it.
  4. Now navigate to the path where Steam put the RCT1 files. By default, this is
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Rollercoaster Tycoon Deluxe
  5. The game should now ask you to restart the game. Do this.

Now you should have access to RCT1 scenarios, land types and opaque water.

It finally worked! Thank you so much. Excited about the newest update too so I'm glad I can jump in just at the right moment it seems. :)
