    Do you know some that are really good and kind of complete? I saw there's OpenLocomotion, but I never played it... is that good? Are there any other similar projects? I don't know much about PC open source games. I mostly played on C64, CPC and Amiga back in the day. Porting can take a lot of time, so it has to be worthwhile.

    I haven't tried OpenLocomotion yet, but there's the OpenRA and Openage projects that garner a lot of attention. Personally I'm still holding out for an OpenMW port, but I understand that's somewhat of a pipe dream for now.

    I think OpenTTD is on switch, and of course doom. As for DOS and C64 stuff you can have emulators for those. Likely a way to get some right now through Linux. x86 games and win98/2000 games will basically have to be open source ports.

    @rsn8887 Can you add a shortcut to CTRL-ALT-C????? This activates the cheats menu on openrct2.

    This game is much more fun with cheats, especially when youve already completed it in the past :)

    Yes you can copy the data files from rct1 into `/switch/openrct2/rct1/` and then you can play the rct1 scenarios.

    Note you have to have rct2 files, too. rct1 is optional in addition to rct2.

    Fantastic port! One of my favorite childhood games. Got my first copy in a cereal box on CD .;)

    Thanks for the hard work. Can't believe how fast the Switch scene seems to be exploding lately. Awesome stuff .

    Please tell me you are not using exfat.

    Yes it works fine for me, I tried both "save" and "save as..." and "load". The only difference between "save as" and "save" is that "save" gives you a default filename like "Crazy Castle". The files

    I just now saved again, in the /switch/openrct2/ folder. Remember you can even create folders, there's a new folder button in the blue save requester. And you can press start to bring up the touch keyboard to change filenames and folder names. I tested that too just now (the keyboard), and it works just fine.

    Remember don't launch openrct2 from ALBUM, always start buy holding R while starting some Switch GAME.

    I only tested the gog.com version it is true. PM send with more information. Basically you might be missing a file or two? Also try deleting everything from the /switch/openrct2/home folder to start fresh.

    Finally got everything up and running. Major thanks to rsn8887 and team. This is such a cool project and really gets my nostalgia pumping.

    I think my issues had to do with bad/missing files. Once I grabbed gog version it booted up in about 2/3 mins.

    Funny to think I was eagerly waiting for 15+ mins.



    P.S. Is there a proper way to exit this app ?

    Press home button? I don't know that's how I do it. Maybe save beforehand :)

    New update to version 1.03:
    Download: https://github.com/rsn8887/openrct2/releases/latest

    I mapped more keys such as shift/ctrl. The cheat menu now opens by clicking the right stick. The image quality is better, display options like sharp filtering now work. The joystick mouse control is fps independent. And more, see changelog below.

    Changelog:
    v1.03
    • Map shift, ctrl, backspace, and escape keys, useful to build above ground and quickly close windows.
    • Map cheat menu hotkey, now works by pressing the right stick in.
    • Make joystick pointer speed truly independent of fps. It now moves at constant speed even if the frame rate is low.
    • The filtering options now work as expected. In docked mode, linear gives a slightly blurry image, and sharp nearest neighbor gives perfectly sharp pixels.
    • General image quality improvements in both docked and handheld mode. The internal rendering now dynamically switches resolution between 1080p and 720p instead of always rendering at 720p. Also, the mouse pointer looks a bit sharper now in handheld mode.
    • The window scaling option now works and can be used to blow up or shrink down the whole game screen, including the user interface.
    • Different game resolutions should also work in principle now. This involves editing the window_width and window_height entries in /switch/home/openrct2/config.ini. Only 16x9 ratios will work correctly. I think the default choice of 960x540 looks the best.
