    I remember playing Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 on a Mac years ago, and to this day, I can't find a copy for Mac anywhere... I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.3 and I was wondering if I can play Rollercoaster Tycoon 3.

    I believe RCT3 runs on Rosetta hence it won't work on Lion.

    I dearly miss playing D2 but ever since Lion upgrade it is a no go...

    I'm patiently waiting for D3 now.

    Yes - since it requires Rosetta you won't be able to run it.

    There was a universal binary option (I own a copy), but it's so old it doesn't support very high res screens :(

    I play RCT3 on my Mac.

    I own the Aspyr version of RCT3 Platinum, but it doesn't run as well as running the Windows version via Wineskin.

    You need a 'valid' :D copy of the Windows version of the game, and check this link for how to install it via Wineskin: http://www.paulthetall.com/page39/page76/index.html

    The Aspyr version has issues displaying water, and the frame rate's a little poo - even with AA turned off. The Wineskin version can't have AA, but the framerate is perfect - water works as it should etc. All the custom scenary and rides from the community work with both versions aswell.

    Bit of a let down from Aspyr really - its a very bad port.
