Software Update: OpenRCT2 0.4.1

Spread the love

Released version 0.4.1 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. In version 0.4.0, a new file format has been introduced for saving the game, which extends various limits, such as the size of the playing fields and the number of carts in the runs. The following changes and improvements have also been made in this first update:
