Won't Display. Goes Blank, Only Audio-
EDIT: Someone bumped this after 3 years. I don't even remember the issue at this point. This was about 3 upgrades ago.


Running into an issue now where when I launch the game my srceen goes blank and all I hear is sound from the game. I have to ALT-TAB to get back to desktop and right click and close.

I have tried alt enter, setting launch options to fullscreen run compat mode on both the RCTPLUS .exe and Steam.exe in every way possible nothing seems to work.

I am running Windows 8 amd fx6200 6 core with a amd 7790 2gddr5 card 10gb ram

Any ideas? I mean I can hear the game running and when i alt +tab to close it I can see it flash up for a second. This was working. I went from it crashing to working to not showing up at all.

could try downloading and re-installing dirextX....maybe. i take it you have already tried running the execution file in compatability mode windows 7 or windows xp service pack 3....? correct?

sadley yes to all. No worries for the first time its the ONLY game NOT working on windows 8 currently. I got it on mac so until this issue goes away I'll play it on there when I can.

uninstall, go to appdata, delete atari - go to the steam folder called Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Gold and delete that also. Then install it again, should work.

Sadley it is still running very painfully slow. I am wondering if it is NOT compat with my video card. Gigabyte Radeon 7790 2gdd5 I have a feeling it is not

Dang. Not sure what to say. Must be a compat issue. :{ ... Maybe try tweaking your graphics settings around?

I just changed cards all together and am now running a Gigabyte 7850 2gddr5. FYI gigabyte sucks ha I'll post soon once I reinstall RCT3plat again

I wish I could help but this was on a COMPLETELY different system 3.5 years ago . I am pretty sure this was a driver issue. The game has wonky native resolutions.

I hope this helps:
If you are running multiple displays, duplicate or disable all but one of them
update drivers
Verify game cache integrity
uninstall reinstall game

Buy Planet Coaster. Its made by the same people who made RCT3 and is fun.
You all have set up a custom resolution as stated in the Custom Resolution Guide already correct?
