How to configure your game so it matches the one referenced within this website:

The following assumes you have compatible computer hardware and a compatible operating system. I personally tested the below configuration on a Pentium 4 PC runing the Windows 2000 operating system. Note: Please install completely as shown below. Attempting to play only the basic game or Corkscrew Follies will not work, as you WILL get errors under Windows 2000 or Windows XP (and you may still get an error just one time on your first attempt to run LoopyLandscapes).

First you will need to acquire both the RollerCoaster Tycoon Game and LoopyLandscapes Expansion Pack, game software compact disks (US versions).
[please note that the LL Expansion Pack compact disk includes "Corkscrew Follies"]
