RCT Community Board / Sending file to a member
« on: Yesterday at 09:04 AM »
When I want to share a file with another member how do I do that?  I don't see the option to attach a file when you send a PM to them saying you have the file they are looking for.  Do you need to send the file directly to their regular email address?  I'm not sure I have the author permission to up load the file to CS Depot and it's an old file I downloaded and don't know how to get in touch to get permission to do so.  I don't want to break any rules.

Hi warcat. Most of us here at SGW who play RCT3 use LAA. There have been no reports here of it messing up our computers (I use it and have had no problems). It only does its thing on programs that you tell it to. LAA is a very small (and free) program that is easy to use. You could give it a try, and if it does not solve your problem you can always delete it, no harm done. :)

I'm also a senior (68) and don't relish having to fix computer problems. If worse comes to worse (it won't) you could always create a Restore Point before trying LAA and if something goes wrong (it won't) you could restore your computer back to that point.

Well I bit the bullet and downloaded LAA, in fact I found 3 different downloads for it. laa_2_0_4.zip, laa_2_0_4_NetFramework_4_5.zip and laa_src.zip on a Youtube tutorial of LAA...The more I look at the different tutorials the more confused I get on which one to to install or how to use it.!  Couldn't find a tutorial over on the Depot or here on ShyGuy''s unless I didn't look in the right places or use the correct words in "Search". I think the one that I should use would be the one marked for NetFramework _4_5 but not 100% sure.  The tutorials on Youtube seem to be how to use it in different games and "do this and that" to change "this or that" so you can do "this or that" in the game your playing. Well I did the first step now when I feel more adventurous I'll take the second step and hopefully install the correct one.  LOL

Hey, warcat. I had to re-sign in at the CS Depot yesterday. I'm usually signed in "forever", but saw that I was signed out. So something screwy may be happening with the Depot. Most likely just a temporary glitch. Glad you can access it again. :)
   JB, I didn't have any problem signing today.  I have noticed in the past that I did have to sign in again as I'm also usually signed in "forever" also. Doesn't happen often but at least you got to sign in again so that's a good thing!

Hmm. Well, there's the old stand-by advice for when a park won't open: Are you using Large Address Aware (LAA)? It gives the game more RAM to work with. Sometimes that's all it takes to get a park to open.
  Thanks again JB.  No I'm not using LAA.  I've read reviews and pros and cons on it, of course that was dealing other games, none of which mentioned RCT3.  Some say it messes with your computer and like I said, senior citizen here, so not sure I could correct anything that is messed up if LAA did that to computer.  Will think about installing it though,,,,thanks again.

Seems to be working now, warcat. At least for me, anyway.
I tried after posting several more times but to no avail so I finally gave up.  Now 24 hours later I tried again and success!  Have no idea what happened but was able to sign in...I check out Custom Scenery Depot first and then use the link at the top of the page to come over here.

I was just on CS Depot and couldn't get signed on....Asked for my user name and password and nothing.  Then computer froze and couldn't get off the page, couldn't do anything except sign off AOL and then sign back on.  Even going through Shyguy's  World couldn't do anything and again computer froze.

I really have no idea but, for what it's worth: Maybe the Win XP file path for the track sound is different on your Win 10 laptop, so it can no longer be referenced? On the saved ride that you said works, was it built/saved on your Win 10 laptop or the old (XP) computer? If it was the laptop then I would say the file path of the track sound (or maybe the custom track itself) from the XP computer is indeed different and can't be referenced properly... I dunno. :-\
The saved ride I think was built on the XP computer for another park but I'm not sure now.  Even before the XP computer stopped working I could no longer get the park to open.  If memory serves me right, old mind now trying to remember, 78, the save ride was just placed in the park instead of building it from scratch again. 
Thanks for your suggestion.

About a year ago made a park on another computer running Windows XP.  Transfer it to my laptop, running Windows 10 Home version. Tried to open the park on the laptop but game will crash when it tries to open the park.  Running the park through ParkCleanUp and running the park through CleanUp the parkfile, saved the park and loaded it into Park CleanUp and click on Content requirements and get the following error: Reference OVL doesn't exist: tracks\trackedrides\trackctr_pinfariz40_ct\...:\...\tracks\tracksounds\steel, referenced via tracks/TrackRides/TrackTCT_PinfariZ40_CT/1station_data

This ride is in the game, have a saved ride that works, have uninstalled and reinstalled the file but still no luck in opening the park.  I can hear the station sound, car leaving the station as the brakes are  released and the car moves out of the station, sounds as the car rolls through the layout, brakes applied when car comes back into station and stops.  All the sounds are there yet I get the above error message....Anyone have an idea what I need to do to correct this?  Any help is appreciated. The computer park was built on won't open the park anymore either and now that computer won't boot up anymore.

That sounds like the kind of problem that can be fixed with sfc /sannow from an elevated command prompt, or, at worst, performing an "in place" windows reinstall.
Thanks for the suggestion Francescoaster but haven't the slightest idea of what you are suggesting and how to go about it....Senior citizen here with just enough "knowledge" to get myself in trouble on a computer as a friend from the past once told me.  It's working now on the laptop but prefer now to play on  the "new" refurbished computer. Just finished transferring all the files for the game from the laptop to the desktop and copying them into the game files and also into the Document RCT3 folder.

11
I have Windows 10 20H2 on my laptop and didn't see any issues
I'm playing on a laptop also.  Sent for a refurbished desktop and so far so good playing that.  Still on my laptop and working okay, again so far so good,but sticking with the desktop computer for now. 

12
Absolutely incredible!  You guys have done a fantastic job!  How you have the patients to do all the details inside the buildings is beyond me.  Sorry to say this is the first time I've commented on this park, been following the progress since it's start.  It just keep getting better and better...I watch the videos on TV with the Youtube app from my cable company, so much better than watching on my laptop.....Just FANTASTIC!

Yes, I remember I created that mod a long time ago. It was released on Realtycoon3 but it's no longer online. I think I still have those files somewhere.
Just let me take a look. I'll edit this post if I manage to find it and upload it to CSDEPOT.

EDIT:

Here it is:

Alternate:

Thank you!  After installing  I still find that the wooden coaster sounds are still not like on my laptop but  the steel coaster sounds are what they sound like on the laptop...Just out of curiosity I listened through head phones and found it's the speakers attached to the desk top that is the corrupt..Sound is great through the headphones!  Time to dig out the other speakers!  Thanks again Francescoaster.

RCT Community Board / Sounds for Wooden Coaster
« on: July 28, 2021, 09:04 AM »
I recently moved RCT3 Platinum game over to another computer and noticed I don't have the same sound on the Wooden coaster, riding and lift hill, as I did on the other computer.  The Steel coasters sound the same as on the other computer. I remember downloading a new file to change the sound for both those in game coasters but don't think I saved the file.  Does anyone remember or have the link to the file?  I don't understand why the Steel coaster sounds okay but the Wooden one just doesn't ..Even the ride sound as you ride the train doesn't sound the same.  Even listening to the game through headphones it still doesn't sound the same....All the other sounds of the game sound like on the other computer.   Transferred from laptop to refurbished desk top.
Thanks for any all suggestions and of course the link, or if you know  where I can find it.

15
Kinda wanted to ask you this, but have you thought of fiddling around in regedit to make RCT3 run in the hard drive? That's how I would get RCT1 and 2 working there.
Wouldn't have the slightest idea how to go about doing that. As I mentioned above, the game is working now but sometimes it will just crash for what seems to be no apparent reason.  Just trying to add an already made coaster and game freezes the next thing I know I'm back looking at that desktop.  Just say a few choice words and walk away....Looking now for a refurbished computer to just install the game on to play.  Thanks for the suggestion.

RCT Community Board / Re: Dumb question
« on: June 18, 2021, 07:48 AM »
Hello! This is such a dumb question, but do you guys know what menu the park entrances are in, so that I can place a new one? I've scoured every single category, and have also scoured Google for an answer but cannot find one. Thanks!

 
I can't remember exactly where they are, but you have to be in the Scenario Editor to see/use them.
As JB mentioned....go to Scenario Editor, then click on the icon between Billboards and Custom Structures.  When you place mouse of the icon it will read, "Park Entrance".  When you click on that it will show you the other options for the entrances.

UPDATE:  I have no idea why but the game shortly after i posted started to load and work, well for one day anyway.  Next day, once again it would not load.  Finally bit the bullet and un-installed the game, saving old games, folders ( Tracks, Style, Cars, Sounds, Supports). Reinstalled and still no luck, Tried the game later the next day and so far, knock on wood, it's loaded and played.  Now another strange thing is I just did a regular re install, didn't update the folders I copied but yet everything I thought I'd have to re install in those folders is showing up in the game....Have no idea what and why this happened but I'm HAPPY again I can play.

18
Maybe it's just your computer. I just applied the same update to my Win10 laptop and I found no issues so far. Is your version the retail disc version? Steam? Amazon Digital Download?
Retail dics version. I've had this disc for years.  When I try to start the game I see the icon of the disc spinning  then an arrow and then nothing.  Even clicking on the icon in the game's folder doesn't load the game.  At first I thought it was Shortcut on the desktop. 

19
Is anyone else having a problem running RCT 3 Platinum since upgrading to the new version of Windows 10 version 20H2?  I recently did the upgrade, seems I didn't have a choice since the message was my version would no longer be supported and no updates would be given. Since the upgrade, 5/31/21 I have a problem loading the game or most times will not load at all.  Didn't have a problem before the upgrade.  Looking in settings I see the following: 
                                             
                                  EDITION            Windows 10 Home
                                  VERSION           20H2
                                  INSTALLED ON  5/31/2021
                                  OS BUILD          19042.1023
                                  EXPERIENCE      Windows Feature Experience Pack
                                                          120.2212.2020.0

Any suggestions to help with this problem would greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Well I see 68 views and no replies so I'm going with the idea I'm the only one having this problem. Backed up Style/Theme,/Custom, Tracks, Cars, Sounds to re-install.  Going to see if un-install and re-install fixes the issue and if so then I'll reinstall the backed up files.

The link for the Freedom Flyer made by CoasterInc is still working as it redirects you to RealTycoon3. You can use that.
I already have the freedom flyer but i dont have the flying ace and thats what im looking for
   I downloaded Freedom Flyer from RealTycoon3 and put it in the game but can't find in when I open the game.  Where is is found under the coasters?  The CS shows up but I can't find the track anywhere.  The track is listed in the directory but I've searched and deleted and reinstalled twice now and can't fine it!    The flying ace and Freedom Flyer's track plan look the same so maybe the difference is in the cars that might be found under the style car once you build the track, if you know where it's located.

Try installing this one. I'm 99% sure it will fix that up.

Thank You for the suggestion.  I used the link and downloaded the file.  I already had already downloaded that file but did a reinstall but no luck.  Running the .dat file once again through ParkCleanup , no errors find, reinstalled the .dat file once again and tried to run it and once again the game froze and I got the same error message about "missing animation"..No bigger, just deleted the file from the game.  Thank once again for the suggestion.

You are not missing anything... Probably that coaster uses a CTR, and you have an older version of the CTR, without restraint animations, or something like that.
Looking at the Data in ParkClean Up the only thing I can see is
AIDDatabaseEntry (Tracks\TrackedRides\CTR_FlyerTrack\CTR_FlyerTrack CTR_FlyerTrack:sid)

Going to see about downloading a newer version and see what happens.The version I have says it was created October of 2018..Thanks for the heads up

RCT Community Board / New error message for downloaded park
« on: October 21, 2020, 03:11 PM »
I recently downloaded a roller coaster file from this site that was included in a file.  The coaster is in a park so the file is a  ".dat" file.  I ran the park through ParkCleanup, did the "Clean up the Park", saved the file and then proceeded with "Content requirements" " the deep check, etc and was given the "No error" report.  The park was put into the game file, "Documents/RCT3/Parks" but when I tried to open the park the game froze. "Pre-Activate went fine, but "Activate Objects" stopped at 39% and the game froze.  Finally getting back to the desktop I saw, "Missing Animation, BoneShape "front" is missing animations"  This didn't come up as an error running the file through  ParkCleanup. Has anyone else had this error message before?  What file am I missing to correct this?

Thank You Shyguy for all the work you do for this site....Greatly appreciated... Had the same problems as listed by the guys above but figured it would be "SHYGUY TO THE RESCUE"! :D and I was correct.  Thanks again!

Just watched the video on YouTube on my TV!  WOW! You guys are doing a great job with the park!  So much to see even with the items you are not pointing out.  Get the biggest kick out of the commentary.  Shout out to all, watch the video on your big screen TV!  Can't wait to see Part 2.
