Patches

I have pulled together on this page most of the various patches for Rollercoaster Tycoon. They include official and unofficial patches.


Official Patches

You should be aware that official patches CANNOT be installed over a "Drexlerized" RCT.exe file.

Scenario Progress Recovery Patch

If you have lost your scenario progress since changing your clock then you need to download this patch.  The patch re-associates the scenario progress and opens up what you have won.  Don't worry about all of the stuff you have lost, it will usually come back.
Download

Original RollerCoaster Tycoon Patch - Upgrading from V1.08.1xx

Corkscrew Follies/Added Attractions Patch - Upgrading from V1.10.0xx

Loopy Landscapes Patch - Upgrading from V1.20.012

RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 Patch
This patch specifically addresses issues users may be having with the SecuRom copy protection included with the game. If the game fails to run after being installed, particularly immediately after the cursor on-screen briefly turns into an animated CDROM, this patch may address that issue.

Note that this patch addresses NO other gameplay issues. If you are able to launch the game now, you do not need this update.

Installation Instructions:

Using your favorite .ZIP program, unzip the RCT2.EXE file into the folder you installed Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 to. By default, this is C:\Program Files\Infogrames Interactive\RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. If you installed into a different folder, be sure to extract to that folder, or extract into a temporary folder and copy the files into that folder.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 Pink Water Add-On/Patch  
This add-on/patch adds an extra color of water to RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.  It will appear as an extra water color in the scenario editor when you go to create a new scenario.

Installation Instructions:

Using your favorite .ZIP program, unzip the WTRPINK.DAT file into the folder you installed Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 to. By default, this is C:\Program Files\Infogrames Interactive\RollerCoaster Tycoon 2\ObjData. If you installed into a different folder, be sure to extract to that folder, or extract into a temporary folder and copy the files into that folder.

Unofficial Patches

The Drexler Patch - Loopy Landscapes

With the release of more recent versions of RCT and the expansion pack, part of the main RCT file (rct.exe) will perform checks on several things every time you attempt to open a saved game. These checks include too much flat land, too much money, too many rides available, etc, etc. Download this file and save it to the same folder you have your rct.exe file in. Next, backup your rct.exe file and tuck it somewhere safe, such as another folder, or even on a floppy. After that, run the patch and it will say if it was successful. It's that simple!
Download

Disclaimer: This unofficial patch is unsupported by Hasbro. If you have problems with RCT while the patch is installed, please do not contact their support. Any problems are likely due to this patch. This patch removes some of the internal constraints on the data and can lead to crashes or malfunctioning of the game. If this happens, your only option is to uninstall the patch.
