    I just made a very minor update to v1.02. The mouse pointer did not change into the hand when hovering over hotspots in the park, such as the visitors or signs. I also slightly reduced the joystick pointer speed to make it easier to control with the stick.

    Download: https://github.com/rsn8887/openrct2/releases/latest

    It is enough to just update the .nro nothing else changed from 1.01 to 1.02

    Changelog:
    v1.02
    • fix mouse cursor not turning into a hand when hovering over hotspots in the park
    • reduce joystick pointer speed slightly for easier control

    This is brilliant news. This is something Atari should have done instead of realeasing that other god awful version. A big thanks from me to everyone involved. RCT on the go people!

    I recorded a quick video to show it off; and in the process, found a visual bug. I haven't played OpenRCT2 in a while, so I don't remember if it's an OpenRCT2 bug or not

    It looks like an Openrct2 bug but it is hard to tell? Can you maybe check if it happens on Windows also?

    Your intro sequence and music is completely different than mine. How did you do that?

    I tested and I don’t see this bug when I place buildings but also my building choices are different. I guess you are playing with rct1 assets?

    Also I think the big only occurs because you rotated that Coca Cola can building or something. I wonder if it goes away if you rotate the view one or two times...

    Btw the rct1 level looks really cool. How can I make it appear and how did you change the title sequence and music? Mine always starts like in my release screenshots.

    I use SX OS for testing. No problem here. It takes a really long time to load at first. It writes some files into /switch/openrct2/home/ . After first long boot, then it loads much faster.

    Pm sent.

    uh, did you maybe build the drinks stall floating in the air in front of the restrooms? Did you try rotating the view?

    Just want to say thank you for this - reliving childhood memories on the go now and it's all thanks to you.

    One question, if I may - has anyone figured out how to raise/lower platforms and scenery? On the PC version, you would simply hold "shift" and roll the mouse wheel up and down.

    I haven't found a way to do this with the current controls for the joycon, making it impossible to stack walls and be more elaborate with scenery as you could in the original games.

    Either way much appreciated, porting this was an amazing feat!

    Thank you! This will be fixed in next update coming soon. What I will do: I will map zoom to DPAD up/down, and then y/x buttons are free to work as SHIFT and CTRL. I think the mouse wheel is not needed, it works by just holding SHIFT or CTRL or both and moving the mouse up and down, according to the information I found here: https://openrct2.org/forums/topic/215-scenery-guide-tricks/ .

    This is based on a complete rewrite of the game (OpenRCT2) but there are similar projects out there for some of the popular games that might be easier to port
