    RCT3 Help

    I used to have RCT3 Platinum on my computer. Then, I lost the disk, so, i re-bought it off Amazon. I just got it today, and when i try to run it says "Insert Original Disk" I can't find the original disk, and i want to play. Any Help?

    The only way you can do it is to uninstall the version you already had on your machine, and then run a registry cleaning utility, and then install clean using the new disc.

    Don't forget to copy all your parks, custom scenery, etc. into a backup folder so you don't lose your work...

    Will that affect anything?

    Not in anything created within the game or used by the game such as parks, scenarios, custom music or scenery. The games independently installed, or installed as a block with the platinum edition are pretty much identical. The differences are in the info written in your registry and possibly a difference in path names to the games/files.

    This is one of the reasons a registry cleaner is needed between deleting the old installed version and the new disc version - it clears out the old registry entries that remain after simply uninstalling the first version, that will continue to confound the newly installed version.

    There is another problem, and that is the Platinum Edition has the expansion packs (soaked and Wild) while the stand-alone RCT3 does not. If you made a park with items from one of the EP's then they will not show up with just the new vanilla version. You would need to purchase the two expansion packs to regain that functionality. Fortunately, they are all inexpensive...
