Released version 0.4.0 of OpenRCT2, the open source version of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. The project tries to resemble the original as much as possible, but is written in a modern language which allows for extensions and improvements. It is similar to, for example, OpenTTD. In order to play it, it is necessary to have the original game, because it needs sound files and the images, among other things. Among other things, this release introduces a new file format used to save the game. This widens various limits, such as the size of the playing fields and the number of carts in the rides. The complete changelog for this release can be found below:
