    Notes on Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 System Requirements

    Note: Windows Media CODEC version 9 is required and is installed with
    RollerCoaster Tycoon® 3. This technology is also installed when updating to
    Windows Media Player 10.
  3. I don't have any idea about what most of that is, or how to check it. I have an Acer aspire 5100-5674 with windows vista. I got it in 2007 if that helps.
    I'm really not much of a computer person
  4. Have you updated your VGA drivers ?
  5. no, how do i do that?
  6. It seems it has ATI X1100 VGA,so go to www.amd.com and in top right section you can choose your OS and your VGA and download the driver
