RCT Station News Archive - August 2002

On this page, you'll find the news in which was on the site during August of 2002.  Links and images that may be listed below may not work due to maintenance to the site since the posting of the news.

Coming Up
Posted Friday, August 30, 2002 by Red Phoenix

I'm sure you're wondering about what's coming up in terms of updates, since there haven't been a whole lot of updates this month.

We're looking at some saved games updates, from both regular members and staff. Everyone seems to be making parks, even though RCT 2 is a little over a month away.

Community news will be back soon. It's been over a month since there has been any significant community news postings made.

The knowledge base will be getting some new articles.

The tracks section is back under construction. This is a section that never seems to stay up longer than a month on the site. I don't know when it will be finished. I have Rob Tonto working on this, so it's all a matter of time.

Stay tuned for those updates, and I'm sure there will be a few others in there.
Forum Member Titles
Posted Friday, August 30, 2002 by Red Phoenix

The problem with member titles has been fixed, thanks to the help of rct help.
WarCraft III Review
Posted Thursday, August 29, 2002 by Red Phoenix

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos has been a highly anticipated real-time strategy title ever since it was mentioned back about three years ago. Does it stack meet up to all the hype? Ogre's Network editor Mithras takes a closer look at this new 3D title from Blizzard Entertainment, in fact it is their first. There is no doubt that this one heck of a title!

Hollywood Hills
Posted Sunday, August 25, 2002 by Red Phoenix

There is a new staff project on the site now. You can find out more information on the new park, Hollywood Hills, right here.
Nav Changes
Posted Friday, August 23, 2002 by Red Phoenix

You may now see that I have made a few changes to the navigation menu. I took the important information for RCT 2, and threw it on the features page. RCT 2 also has it's very own screenshot page.
Digital-Coaster Problems
Posted Friday, August 23, 2002 by Red Phoenix

Our main file mirror site, Digital-Coaster, is having problems right now with their server. If you try to download a saved game or one of Steve Franks' track packs, you're likely run into a problem. Hopefully, this will be cleared up soon.
New Network Site
Posted Friday, August 23, 2002 by Red Phoenix

Ogre's Network is proud to announce another quality fan site added to its ranks. The Twins of Doom and a few others have just opened the Kingdoms of Azeroth, a new fan site for WarCraft 3.

Forums Are Back
Posted Monday, August 19, 2002 by Red Phoenix

The forums are now back online. If you registered an account since the board was wiped out, you may have to re-register your account.
New Track Pack
Posted Sunday, August 18, 2002 by Red Phoenix

I have just released Steve Franks' latest track pack, Coaster Thrill Ride @ Puyallup Fair. You can find this little coaster right here.
Board Update
Posted Saturday, August 17, 2002 by Red Phoenix

The forums will be back soon. How soon is hard to say. I'm taking advantage of the downtime to make a few changes to the board, one of which is the skin. The skin will be much simpler than the one that was being used. Much duller in color and with fewer images, the skin will, for the most part, be just what I wanted. Huge credit goes out to Railwolf and Ogre for getting most of the skin together.

In the meantime, feel free to use the main Ogresnet forum.
New Article

New Official Site
Posted Friday, August 9, 2002 by Red Phoenix

Infogrames has launched their new site for RollerCoaster Tycoon. It's very different from the old one. They have taken a lot of content from Chris Sawyer's site, which isn't surprising. All around, some nice changes in preparation for the October 15th release of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.

I know I have some changes to make when that comes around.

General Stuff
Posted Sunday, August 4, 2002 by Red Phoenix

The July contest results will be up in a couple of days. The August contest details will then soon follow.

The message boards are online now. I obviously haven't had time to customize the look and feel of them. This will come in due time. Bookmark the link ( http://forums.ogresnet.com/rct/index.php), because I haven't added it anywhere else on the site yet.

You will all notice that your member profiles are still there. I just hope they work, heh.
Community News
