Yes, I have heard some things in relation to the "non-technical" issues.  Truly is a bummer indeed.  All of this and that to basically port to console...not really what this game was all about.

Well in the end it's all about money... What else holds up things like this?

It should be in stores next week- originally it was going to be this week but a snafu delayed things a bit.

This is great news...

Not to press my luck because I don't care as much about Wild as I do about Soaked... but is there any chance that Wild expansion will be ported as well?

I just bought and installed Soaked and unless they just didn't want to take the icon off... it looks like there will be a Wild expansion coming to the mac as well. There are three icons one if you want to play RCT3, one for Soaked, and one that is grayed out for Wild. I just hope it doesn't take over another year for that expansion.

Well, I don't know about any other members, but I have started playing this game, with the Soaked! Expansion pack, and it keeps on crashing. I don't even know why. I have went through every graphic setting from better performance - performance - balanced - quality - better quality, and it still crashes. This annoys me. Since I have bought this game on Tuesday, it has crashed more than 30 times. Has anybody else had a problem.

I have a PowerPC G5 Dual 2Gghz, 8GB DDR SDRAM, 64MB GeForce FX5200, so it seems like it should run. I have contacted support at Aspyr, waiting for their answer!

What version of OS X? That 8 GB of RAM looks wild too - I wonder if having that much is freaking it out.

Could be.  I have a similar setup (7 GB RAM) and I can't even load a park.  The game just shuts down.
I think I wasted my money.  I'm dropping this game, at least until something changes.

What version of OS X do you have?  Contact Aspyr support- if we don't hear bug reports from anyone we can't fix them.

I've had it crash only once, then I did a fresh install.

Seems to be okay now, maybe something to do with loading soaked over RCT3 vanilla with the 1.2 universal patch installed?

CORRECTION - Ha, thats what I get, it crashed twice in the last ten minutes, once before opening a park, once when trying to save.  I'll send in a crash report...

The latest, 10.4.9.  I'll start a ticket soon.

I think I've wasted my money, as well. I've done the fresh install 3 times already, and I'm not doing it again. I like playing the career mode, but that's impossible if I have to completely reinstall the game (and lose my progress) every time it crashes. I opened a ticket and got a reply, but they're also suggesting removing all peripherals (except keyboard & mouse); creating a new user account; installing from there & trying again? No thanks. I shouldn't have to go through so many hoops to play this game. Bummer. :(

No crashes for me on either 10.4.8 or 10.4.9.

2Gb RAM machine.

Hopefully the Wild expansion will come out also, as many save files you download require both.

Seems they've left it open to do just that (greyed Wild Logo at Career Screen)


I do have questions for those of you with crashing issues.  As I am having the same problem, and I seem to be at a dead end with support (understandable, I may have a third-party issue); I am curious which machines the rest of you have, and if you have any software installed that runs on an all-the-time basis.  This would include programs like Shapeshifter, Overflow, etc.  Maybe I can help work out an answer.  Also, do you have any audio-related software installed.  This would include add-ons to iTunes, Quicktime plugins, or players/editors like Audacity or Democracy (Democracy installs codecs into the system)
