    I've installed rct 2 and whenever I click on the game it tells me this:


    Unable to initialize graphics system


    could someone please help? I have no idea what is causing this [​IMG]

    I've had problems with this game on Windows 7 too. Difference is that the game loads and stuff, but it eventually makes my computer freeze, and I have to force shut down (no ctrl alt del).

    You can run it on a virtual machine. I did the same for classic old Lego Loco [​IMG]
    Gotta love that game. Especially when LAN is set up.

    What Sausage Head said. Update your graphics card driver.

    What manufacturer made your graphics card?
    Check on their website for drivers and install those. If that does not work, try removing/disabling them temporary.

    You could've just used a virtual machine to save the hassle of selecting which partition to boot from everytime.
