RCT3 Help needed... Game won't load

Post by lkng4chub » Fri, 22 Jul 2005 02:49:56


Normally I would post this in the RCT group... but it seems that group is
dead.

I installed RCT3, I go to play it, and it tells me that I need to install
DirectX9.  So I install it from the CD, I try it again, same message.  So I
go to the Microsoft website, download all versions of DirectX9, install
them, go to play it... nothing....  What to do now?

I'm not kidding.  Have you rebooted your machine since installing
everything?
How far does it get into the load process?  Maybe your graphics card is not
compatible.  How much memory do you have?  Does your computer meet the
minimum requirements listed in the instructions?  Please provide as many
details as possible then we can troubleshoot.

I had the same problem. It had to do with the settings of my video
card. I had turned something off...can't remember the exact setting
but it was obvious when I looked at the settings. Performance related,
I think. Make sure the "hardware acceleration"(that sounds right)
is turned on.

It gets as far as.. I click the icon to start the game and the error message
immediately pops up, the game doesn't even load except for that message.

Everything on the computer is top of the line (at the time it was created.)
AMD Athlon 64-FX53 processor, 2.4 Ghz, 2GB RAM, 120GB HD

I know the game works, I installed it on here before and it played just
fine.  But somewhere along the line, for whatever reason, it had been
uninstalled by accident.
