OpenRCT2

Wednesday, March 2, 2016 10:55 PM

So I read the RCT subreddit regularly now and finally decided to try out OpenRCT2 since they have a working Mac build, which means I have a working RCT2 game on my Mac partition and don't have to jump over to my Bootcamp partition to play anymore. Its basically an open source framework that expands and modifies the base game, with a fairly complete cheats menu built in (most of the main features from 8cars are there), as well as the ability to build parks collaboratively with multiplayer servers.

Does anyone else here use OpenRCT? Its a pretty recent thing, less than 2 years old. Here's the website.

Okay. I have my old RCT2 disc for my old Windows machine. Are you saying that I can somehow pop that disc in my iMac and download something from this website and I can play RCT2 on my mac?

I have been getting away with not having anything to do with Windows for a while now, so I don't know how this partitioning thing works. I don't want to have to download Windows or anything. Can I play on my Mac without Windows?

No, I think OpenRCT2 is a recreation of RCT2 using open source code and added features, including online multiplayer and whatnot. Haven't tried it myself though, but that's what I gathered from the site

All I had to do was copy my Infogrames Interactive folder (which is the Programs folder that contains RCT2) from the Program Files on my Windows partition into my Applications folder on my Mac side, put the OpenRCT2 app inside the Infogrames folder, point the app to the Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 folder, and presto, it works. If you don't have it installed on a Windows machine where you can easily just copy the program folder to a USB stick to bring it over you'll have to find a way to copy the contents of the game CD off and into the proper structure, but once you do that, it really is as easy as I just typed above.

Here's what I did on my Mac –

- Installed a trial version of CrossOver

- Installed RCT2 there

- Edited the "Bottle" and copied out the RCT2 files

I have to say that OpenRCT2 works beautifully.


I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.

Here's what I did on my PC:

- Inserted RCT2 disc

(Sorry. Just being difficult).

I use it all the time, I don't even touch the base game anymore even though I have the option to. OpenRct2 is just so much better
