  1. Landscape removal isn't working anymore

    RCT2 and older versions of OpenRCT2 display the technical size of the map. But since the map is surrounded by a ring of invisible tiles, this means that the usable area is two blocks smaller. So what RCT2 calls 256 x 256, OpenRCT2 calls 254 x 254, because that's the visible and usable area.
  2. Broken spawn on Amity Airfield

    I just pushed a fix for Amity Airfield. The problem is as follows: the scenario has people enter from a corner. To adjust this, I had added 16 to the y coordinate. So far so good, but it did not only apply this when starting the scenario, but every time the save was loaded! I have now pushed a better fix.
  3. Cool roller coaster names

    /r/rct used to be swamped with images like this. Not being a young teen any more, they grow old quickly.
  4. They're on the Thrill Rides tab, as they're simply reskinned Twists.
  5. Could you upload the save?
  6. That's not why we disabled it, in any case. Rather, it is for technical reasons: we don't have a mechanism to send missing track designs to all players, so using one that not everybody already has will cause desyncs. This can be addressed, but we also have 1001 other things to do. Patches are, of course, always welcomed.
  7. Which rides are missing? That's quite basic info you really need to provide. Nevertheless, I do have an idea: OpenRCT2 will now group vehicles together. This means that what was previously displayed as "Stand-up Twister Coaster" will now be grouped together under "Twister Roller Coaster". You will also see that it lists available vehicles in New Ride window. To switch vehicles, you can use the second tab in the Ride window.
  8. Rct1 Color Picker

    I'm not sure why one would want this. It's quite an unwieldy widget, and I'm not sure what it would solve.
  9. As we already said on Github, it was caused by Discord integration. Janisozaur actually sent in a patch to allow for Vista support, which has been merged, but we need to update our dependencies. After that, the game should work on Vista again. But really, you shouldn't expect programs to support Windows Vista anymore. Microsoft stopped supporting it and it was never popular anyway.
  10. editor

    This has been solved in the meantime. Please update to the newest develop.
  11. Future of this project?

    RCT Classic is in essence RCT2 with a few extra features (like boosters), compatibility for modern operating systems (Windows 7/8/10, macOS), ports of RCT1 scenarios and a new interface. Now, ports of RCT1 scenarios have been available since shortly after RCT2 was released. Running RCT2 on modern versions of Windows mostly involves installing DirectPlay. The interface is unlikely to be a selling point. And finally, OpenRCT2 is compatible with RCTC boosters (as well as RCT1 ones, which RCTC is not). OpenRCT2 has more features than RCTC. What RCTC does have is the element of convenience: you can simply buy it and you'll have a classic RCT game that will work without hacks, you'll have all the scenarios, and not many bugs. To me, it seems more like an opportunity than a threat. Of course, there is the point that we don't make money with OpenRCT2, so a competitor won't really affect us personally. There is also the element of competition keeping us sharp. But the opportunity goes beyond that, as RCTC will probably draw more people to classic RCT games again, and thus to OpenRCT2 as well. In order to seize the opportunity, Lewis (LRFLEW) and I have worked on making OpenRCT2 compatible with RCTC's assets, with him doing the most of the work. Because of this, OpenRCT2 could be used with the RCTC assets within 24 hours of RCTC for Windows/macOS being released! (It does lack audio and scenarios, unfortunately, although the former should not be very hard to implement.) This means that OpenRCT2 works for both RCT2 and RCTC owners.
  12. Can't join any servers

    That does not apply to objects from Wacky Worlds and Time Twister, only to custom objects.
  13. Vomit update

    Could one of you track down the exact version that broke this? Like: "version 12ab345 still worked correctly, but 6cd7ef8, which comes directly after, is broken." It would greatly speed up solving this.
  14. Are you on Windows? Go to your Documents folder, then to OpenRCT2 subfolder, and either make the changes needed to config.ini, or just remove (or even just rename) that file. Leave the rest of the files in that folder as they are.
  15. ORCT2 have limits of attractions?

    I'm not likely to do what you want if you resort to shouting. You are the first one to complain about this. That is no exaggeration. It must be less of a problem than you suggest. And now you get angry that we don't rush to cater to your demands. Do you honestly expect us to do so if you act like that? I'd find this behaviour unacceptable if you paid money for this game, let alone now you're provided it for free and we put most of our free time into it.
