Downloading now...

Played it. Very nice, but runs a bit choppy with a lot of activity. Can't wait for full version!*** This post was edited by RCT_MASTER 9/27/2004 7:13:27 PM ***

Ack, I don't like it.

So about NL 1.5 coming out eh ;)

Seriously, it is not as fun as the "old" style RCT was IMO.

After a little bit of playing, it definately is no where as good as RCT2, in my opinion.

Jeff's avatar As I've said before... I can bet it's because of old crusty video drivers.

Sean...what video card do you have in your machine? The head of Frontier just posted a message that said the Assertion error is due to a video card that will not work with RCT3.

Here's the full message:

I'm afraid it means your graphics card is below the minimum spec. and can't play the demo. Sorry. Apologies for the ugliness of this message. We did (until recently) have a check for the minimum-spec machine, and refused to run - but we removed this when we found some machines that were OK even though they were technically below it.

I'm very disappointed with this demo/game. I actually was planning to buy it but now I'm unsure. I don't see why they even dared to use the title Roller Coaster Tycoon, a title which over the last 5 years earned it’s respect which was just ruined with RCT3. They should have named it something else. I wouldn't even call this better then Roller Coaster Tycoon 2. Very disappointed.... Chris Sawyer if you reading this, please, drop Frontier and make Roller Coaster Tycoon 2.5 or something, please.
