To integrate (or hack) two or more
rides together you will first have to acquire the Beast Trainer
version 2.2 from www.coastergrotto.com.
You will also need to run RCT in window mode. To do this, click
on the disk in the toolbar and select options; there you will be
able to switch to window mode.
To start with, it is a good idea to
construct the track of all coasters that are being used. This makes
it easier to do all the 'hacking' in a short time, therefore making
you more used to it and giving you practice, because good 'hacking'
abilities don't come easily. Even people who consider themselves
to be good hackers can run into problems.
After constructing all the rides, and
to start with, I recommend you integrate only two roller coasters.
Also, it is a good idea to integrate the two rides together on straight
pieces of track if it is the first time you are undertaking this
task. Where you would like the two rides to join, delete the first
piece of track from the second roller coaster (we will refer to
the second roller coaster as being the one that the roller coaster
train will be travelling onto from its original track). Then, open
the Beast Trainer and select 'Begin special build mode' from the
'Landscaping' menu. Then, build the track piece back onto the second
roller coaster (the piece that you deleted previously). You must
wait until you see a message on the message bar that says 'Begin
special build mode' before you do this.
After you have done this, right-click
on the first roller coaster track that will be integrated with the
second roller coaster track. Move the Beast Trainer window above
the roller coaster construction window. You must be quick in doing
the next task, as you must 'fool' RCT! Select the 'Landscaping'
menu and hover the mouse pointer above 'Execute build thru'. Then
when you are feeling brave enough double-click on it. The reason
for this is that you click the 'Execute build thru' command and
then click on the 'Add piece' button on the construction window.
When you have done this, he track on
the second coaster should be flashing. If this is not the case then
you must go back and start again from the point where you deleted
the track on the second roller coaster. If this is the case then
you have successfully hacked the two rides!
Before testing the ride, you will need
to change the ride mode to 'Powered Launch' in the ride window,
under the 'cog' menu. If the ride does not have this option use
the Beast Trainer to 'Modify Ride Options' in the 'Rides' menu.
There you will be able to change the ride mode for the first roller
Then test your ride! If you have been
successful, then your roller coasters' train should travel straight
onto the second roller coasters' track. If you were unsuccessful
then the train will crash when trying to leave the first track.
Then, to complete the circuit, you
will need to do the same thing, only this time you start by deleting
the track of the first roller coaster.
