Thread: RCT doesn't save games

    Question RCT doesn't save games

    Hi everyone!
    Recently I installed Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 on my new computer.
    Now I'm having a common problem, which I experienced on my old computers as well with this game: I am able to save games, but I can't open them in the start screen. Whenever I click on it, simply nothing happens or shows up. This kinda sucks because whenever I work on a park, I can't complete it...
    I have had this problem on my old computer a few years ago, but I was able to fix it with a patch.
    The thing is I can not find any working patches anymore
    Does someone know where I can find one or how I will be able to save my games again?
    I'd be so happy if I can finally play all my saved games again.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hello, I'm having the same problem. I bought rollercoaster tycoon: the ultimate collector's box. After installing RCT1, I tried to save a game. I'm possible to save a game but unable to load it.

    The following worked for me to load saved games -- get to "Saved Games" directory and run something like this from the command line:
    ..\rtc my_park.sv4

    where my_park is your saved game filename (avoid spaces for simplicity).

    I was having trouble for this for awhile, try this... So create a save file on your desktop name is what ever you want, then when you want to save instead of saving to the normal one save to the one on your desktop. That worked for me

    Hey guys, I'm not very tech savy & been having the same problem as you all, not being able to save games. I'd love to be able to create a new save file on my desktop to solve this problem but I dont know how. Would you guys be able to explain it or even refer me to a link that would?
