How do you get RCT3 to work with windows 8?
I recently got a new computer with windows 8, and the game wont work. It just says "RCT3 has stopped working." Any ideas? Help please!

Run it in compatibility mode for Windows 95 maybe. That's how I got it to work on Windows 7 when it was doing the same thing to me. Don't know why Windows 95, but it worked.

I tried to put into compatibility mode, but it didn't work. It says that the program can't start because it is already running. I think it has something to do with the fact that Direct X is built into the operating system and already running with windows 8, so the game tries to launch Direct X again, but it's already running. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.

Have you logged out of steam and ran as administrator?
