  1. Past hour
  2. Hello there, A few weeks ago, a friend of mine said that I should download OpenRCT2 so we can play multiplayer RCT. I had RCT 1 and 2 on CD's, but my new pc did not have a cd input, so I couldn't use CDs for my pc. Then I decided to buy RCT 1 & 2 for steam. I bought it and I got RCT 1 Deluxe, 2 Triple Thrill pack and 3 Platinum(apparently I got a bundle). I downloaded RCT 1 and 2on my second disk, also downloaded OpenRCT2 on my second disk (the first disk is an SSD, the second is an HDD, I wanted to save some space on my SDD :) ). I started OpenRCT2 launcher and connected to my RCT 2, and started. Since then I started to play only multiplayer and did not see my singleplayer runs (my friend hosted a server). My friend said that I could practice building Roller coasters on Singleplayer. So I looked in my singleplayer tab and saw only RCT2 scenarios. Nothing wrong with that, but I also wanted my RCT1 scenarios. I have heard and looked up on the internet that OpenRCT2 would detect RCT1 + dlc's. This is not the case for me. I would like if my OpenRCT2 Launcher also would detect RCT1 so I can practice those scenarios. I hope someone has an answer that OpenRCT2 Launcher would detect RCT1 with my RCT2. Sorry for my bad English, I'm dutch Guus

    Messed Palette on a Save Game

    Tried what you have told, none works. I'll check the forums then. EDIT: After several rechecking, turns out the issue was with the "enable lightning effect". I remember enabling it to see how it looks during the night. Thanks!

  6. Yes, that is one of the first things you have to do, and I have done it before for in-house Filezilla and Minecraft servers. Canyouseeme.org was able to successfully ping the port and my friend was able to see it on the list, although he wasn't able to maintain the connection to it (I am starting to suspect he may have been having internet problems at the particular moment we tried this, which could be compounding the problems and make me suspect a problem with the network when in fact it's seemingly more likely a problem with the particular version of the server running on my PC, i.e. headless vs. client). I am unable to connect to it from my MacBook Pro using the same network version from outside the network, but can connect from the LAN. Was able to check my girlfriend's PC and it can successfully connect from inside the LAN too. One thing I have noticed is that it seems extremely sensitive to order of operations. If I start a server using the OpenRCT2 client (e.g. to set permission) and then switch to a headless server running on the same PC, the headless server constantly errors out that it was incapable of advertising, and nothing can connect to it (including a localhost connection from the same PC). However, if I start the headless server first, then I can connect to it on the same PC as well as from other PCs on the network. The problem there is it's not currently possible to give anyone permissions - the commands don't seem to exist for headless servers, and using a whitelist.json that has my client player name doesn't work. Whichever form of server I create first (headless batch file or OpenRCT2 client), only that type of server works until the computer is restarted. Very strange. Somehow one program takes ownership of the port and doesn't give up control until the computer is restarted. I still have not been able to get anyone to successfully connect from outside of the network for longer than a few seconds, but hope to get more people onboard to try different things tonight.

    Messed Palette on a Save Game

    A few things to try: Check your settings, disable day/night cycling. Check if toggling weather effects / lightning makes any difference. In-game, go to object selection (you need to enable debugging tools for that) and (temporarily) select a new water color. Changing the water color changes the entire palette of the game, though the only differences are usually only in the water colors. You're not the first with this problem. Search around this forum for that other topic to see if there’s a solution there.

    Some Requested CTR's

    I use Blender for my custom rides - it's open source and does everything needed. But it doesn't particularly matter what software you use - you might want to ask @Spacek what program he prefers as well.
  9. Touchscreen support should already be there. It is not as nice as mouse controls yet, but it is gradually being improved. If there are any problems with touchscreen controls, don’t hesitate to talk to the devs (create an issue on github if it doesn’t exist yet).

    In that case, don’t send them over wetransfer either. Just make sure you only share non-official content. You can easily sort those out by looking at the date they were created.

    Some Requested CTR's

    Where would I get a 3d modelling program?
  12. I play OpenRCT2 on MS's Surface Pro 2017 model. When you play games, you feel like you don't have to use the keyboard to lie down and lighten it. However, in OpenRCT2, by default, the movement of the screen is to move the mouse cursor to the edge. It's very hard to do on a touch screen. Like mobile games, if moving with two touchpoints, it would be simple if you just added a command that allows you to scroll through the screen. Is this a difficult task? Thx for read :)

  15. Recently on my personal project park, I noticed the palette is brighter than it should be. I have tried to backtracking where the problem first came but comes with nothing. As a comparison: Left side is the bugged one, right side is the normal one. How does this happened in the first place? I did nothing out of ordinary such as sv6 hex editing, just cheats within the game The save is attached here. Thanks Opera of the Wasteland3.zip
  16. Hey Guys, I don't have a lot of experience with Linux and Ubuntu, but I managed to start a Minecraft Server on it a few months ago. Recently I wanted to use my externally hosted VPS (at OVH), to play OpenRCT2 with many friends of mine; but I couldn't figure out how to install it. Many tutorials and other topics aren't clear to me, or tell how you should do it within OpenRCT2 or with software such as Hamachi. To be clear: I DON'T want to host my server locally, I want to use my OVH VPS with Ubuntu 16.04 to host it 24/7 (with a password of course). I tried to use the step-by-step progress from the wiki, but the reading and copy-pasting didn't really work. How do I run the Server from a command line? Do I need the RCT2 files, and can I copy these from my Windows PC? And if so, can I just use the 'home' directory for that? Do I need some other dependencies for this? So, if someone can explain me clearly how to run a Multiplayer Server on an external Ubuntu VPS, this would help me a lot. Thanks in advance. (Yes, I moved this topic from "Problems, Bugs & Feedback" to here.)

    Roman Holiday; a 25 x 25 Micro Park

    Great atmosphere! Although for me it feels like you could have done a slightky better job in your track transitions on a few points. But, givem that, a really awesome showcase!

    Roman Holiday; a 25 x 25 Micro Park

    Recently, I noticed there was a trend starting with Microparks and decided to give my take on a micropark a shot; This is Roman Holiday, a 25 x 25 park themed to Rome. It has 5 rides and several stalls all tightly interwoven between buildings and water elements. My goal for the park was to create something tightly wrapped together while still aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Although there's several things I feel I could have done differently, overall I'm extraordinarily content with how the park turned out. Its simple layout is quite effective in getting peeps across the park and into the various rides, with facilities placed in locations that allow for easy access. Something in Microparks that I've noticed is that a lot of them don't tend to mess with water; given the nature of the Roman Theme, I feel that not playing around with water in this would have been a crime. This vertical drop Dive Machine coaster is called Amphisbaena, themed to the mythical two headed flying serpent. It features 2 vertical drives, three inversions (one of which dives you under the coaster's station building), and a splashdown. Despite it's somewhat short looking layout, it interacts with several other rides throughout the park and stands out with it's teal and red color scheme. Had I had more room to work with, I would have loved to continue the custom support work, but I found that I just never had enough room to do what I want. Overall I'm still content with how it looks; it's incredibly photogenic. Rising above the park's gift shop and in between several parts of Amphisbaena is The Chariot, a simple ferris wheel that provides a unique perspective of the park. It also features a unique queue building themed after a typical barracks. The park's Rainbow ride, nestled away in a corner behind Amphisbaena's splashdown, is called Gladiator, and themed after token gladiator battles throughout ancient Rome. It offers a neat view of Amphisbaena's Immelman and the park's river rapids. In another corner of the park is a Spider ride themed after the God Mercury, who's taking flight to deliver his message and brings you along for the journey. While not the most thrilling ride at the park, it's located in a breathtaking area near the park's waterfalls. Finally, there's the park's rapid ride; the Tiber River Rapids. It sprawls throughout the front of the park, passing by several of the rides and even dueling under the bridge with Amphisbaena. Overall, this was a fun challenge and I hope you all enjoy my park as much as I enjoyed working on it!
  21. So...I just bought RCT 2 Triple Thrill Pack from Steam, downloaded and installed it and started it afterwards. All fine. Game runs etc. Then i wanted to install OpenRCT and now the issues begin: After the installation, when i want to start ORCT, the windows error sound comes up, the screen freezes, CPU-Usage freezes aswell and i have to terminate the process via the taskmanager. However the funny thing is, that the background music runs smoothly until i terminate the process. I tried uninstalling both, the game at steam and ORCT. I tired the develop version and the "stable" one. I also tried compability mode and launch as admin. Neither of those things worked Someone in the chat asked me to launch it via command mode and with "verbose", to get some kind of logs in the command window. I also have a dumpfile here. I am not that familiar with issues like that. I had a cracked rct a long while ago and open rct worked with that one....also i am not that famliar with cmd menues, logs etc. so pls dont hesitate to tell me, if something is missing. i ll try to put it in here asap. Thanks a lot in advance! a427e4ae-2ff6-424b-9e0c-fc8d54cd705e(f26c4c3_x86-64).dmp
  22. I have never been able to start a server myself and i have never really tried to. But i did research what i would have to do to start a server: Are you sure you opened a port or ports through your internet service provider? That's one of the things i think you have to do.

    Improved Go-karts

    I quite like go-karts, and having seen this INSANE park that heavily features Go-Karts, I've thought of some things that could make them even better. 1: Karts choose sides on merged track Currently, Go-karts will only go on one side of the track on straights and 1-radius turns (The parts used in the go-kart ride itself). However, when they encounter a large turn they will go in the centre of the track, which looks odd and doesn't match their intended behaviour. I'm not sure why they don't, perhaps there's some variables associated with track pieces to decide the offset that are only set for the go-kart's track pieces. 2: Karts don't skip over diagonal elements (and others) When making a kart track with the arbitrary ride type changes cheat, I found the karts would just teleport past diagonal straights and 45* turn pieces, like a regular coaster teleports past golf holes. This limits how tracks can be built. I can understand skipping inversions, but one idea I have had is to make custom MK8-style karts with sprites for inversions etc., and this won't work if the karts just teleport past the inversions. 3: Shortcuts and track splits I can understand this one being harder to implement, but since the karts can choose the side of the track they drive on, why shouldn't they be able to choose between 2 tracks? This would enable functional shortcuts or alternative routes. I like the above park's approach with one lap actually consisting of the karts driving two circuits of the track, but in my opinion having actual functioning shortcuts would make go-karts much more exciting. For this one, I do see many implementation problems, such as how to perform the split (probably a new track piece), how to check that all paths form complete circuits etc., so I'm not expecting it to be done anytime soon. But hey, it's an idea.
  26. Clearly an AV issue. Go to your antivirus and whitelist/restore OpenRCT2 there.
  27. Perhaps your AV is acting up? Try disabling its live components and downloading OpenRCT2 again. The directory to select when prompted is C:\Users\<Your Name>\AppData\Local\DiscordGames\RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 Triple Thrill Pack\content\Game We are working on making the process easier for Discord users, but this will take a few more days, as the Discord version has only just been released.
  28. So, I got RCT2 with discord lately, and wanted to apply the open build. I had issues at first, as I had problems getting appdata to appear in the menu that the app gives you on first startup. I got the location wrong a few times, but eventually worked it out and clicked the right one (I believe so anyways). Nothing happened as I did, the menu just closed itself rather than give any error message or do anything else. Decided I'd do what I usually do, go for a full uninstall and start from the beginning. I ran the uninstaller, no issues. I went to my downloads folder and ran the x64 exe file again. It ran, installed, but this time I didn't get a desktop shortcut. I went to the folder, but the exe file itself was missing, as was the uninstaller. To confuse things even more, the x64 installer exe had completely disappeared from my downloads folder, or so I had thought. When trying to download a new installer exe, I would get an insuffecient permissions error. If I changed the name of the exe installer, as if it were trying to download a file with an identical name (i.e. File and File(1)), it would work. However, upon running that fresh installer exe (I sent the previously created files that lacked the exe to the bin and cleaned the bin also before doing so), the installer exe again ran, again installed the folder, but without any actual exe file, and then disappeared from my downloads folder. From what I can ascertain, the installer exe is actually STILL in my downloads folder, but somehow is hidding itself, which is why I can't download the same file name into it despite no file with that name being there. (I tried hidden files, it's not there at all.) As for why the installer worked the first time but is now failing, I'm not sure. It may be a case that the uninstaller bugged and is causing issues? I just want to install and run it so I can play in windowed mode >.<
