Hacking Above 61
Michael Zaremba Jr. (Batman Fan)
Building coasters in Roller Coaster
Tycoon has always been limited by Chris Sawyer, we now we can do
something about that. Make sure you save before attempting this
hack, as this one can be very unstable if not done correctly.
Everyone who has played R.C.T. knows
that trainers such as Dragon 5 and TRG just don't do enough to pass
the height of "61". This is one of the many features people want
to do and it can be done using either "Hex editing" or Beast. (version1.1
Beast makes it very easy, so we will
not even begin with hexing it. As far as I know, Buster was the
first to ever "HEX" this hack and I am the first to use the Beast
to hack it.
The first thing to do is recognize
two things: Roller Coaster Tycoon is like a room. Rooms have ceilings
and floors. R.C.T's "Ceiling" is at the height of "63", thus R.C.T
displays images up to the height of "65." Likewise, there is a floor
in the game, "0" is the lowest height in the game.
So really you can say that their are
truly 65 levels in R.C.T (plus the 0 level), instead of the 61 which
is commonly thought of by most people.
So to build past these "limits" we
need to understand that. But, the second part is that their is truly
no way to build past it without hacking. The hack is nothing more
then a scenery hack, although it seems to be harder then the average
See, when you build a track piece in
R.C.T. under the Beast special build mode, you can think of it really
as three pieces. The pieces will not stack right if not built all
together. Why? Simply put it, I don't know, but I have discovered
that even closing and opening the Beast doesn't work.
So now lets try it, open Beast and
go to special build mode. Build a small hill, see this picture.
Now hit stack scenery, this moves the
hill up. I have found out that Beast moves the track 2 - 3 levels
up each time, why it changes? I don't know. But you must continue
to stack these higher and higher. Until the height you want.
WARNING: Do Not stack to fast,
your pieces will freeze and become useless. Also if you track disappears,
you have stacked to high. This is a hard hack, the solution,
start you hill at a different height.
When you reach the height you should
have everything in place and it will be your highest coaster ever.
