Hey, is it possible to run RCT2 in a window, instead of fullscreen? I tried adding -windowed to the shortcut like with LRR but it didn;t work.

Having it always in fullscreen is very inconvenient.

I'm not sure if this is possible with the standard game configuration, but I mostly use Alt+Tab to switch between game screen and 'normal' screen.

Also, this might help you a bit: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=VuawyRSqYTc

Bah, youtube. Can't watch youtube videos because of the stupid internet filter.

But I could read the description, and I downloaded the hack files, now how do I use them?

Allow me to explain then (as I quote from the video):

- First off, open RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.

- Then, go to options in-game and make sure the resolution is set to either 800x600 or 640x480.

- Close the game.

- Go to your RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 directory and open it (often found in Program Files --> Infogrames --> RollerCoaster Tycoon 2)

- Then place the extracted files from the download in that directory.

- Start the game and it should play in windowed mode now.

NOTE: To move the camera around rather than moving the mouse to the corresponding side of the screen, hold down right click and move the mouse around to scroll the camera.

It is the options in both 1 & 2.  It is in mine anyways.

Some interesting development info and images of RCT, dating as far back as september 1996 when the concept of a White Knuckle game was made by the one and only Chris Sawyer:

I just re-read this thread, and I have no idea what I was working on that I was being so coy about >.>

I'd like to try modding RCT2 (from what I've read it's a very mod-friendly game) but I don't know how and can't seem to find a good tutorial or the right tools to do so. Such is life.
