I've put together a Wine wrapper for Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, allowing it to be played on Linux almost like a native game & with no Wine knowledge required.

Simply run the build script to create the wrapper. If the installer files are not alongside the wrapper build files then the path to them will need to be specified either by passing it as an argument to the build script with -respath="<path>" or by setting an environment variable named WINEWRAP_RESPATH containing it. You can change the path to build the wrapper in and the name of the wrapper directory with the -buildpath= and -dirname= arguments. The build path can also be set with the WINEWRAP_BUILDPATH environment variable.

The output will be a directory containing the game set up within a preconfigured Wine prefix, along with its own copy of Wine, extracted game icons, documentation, and start script(s). From there simply run the start script to play. The start script also includes options for creating a shortcut, configuring the wrapper etc.

(to uninstall simply delete the game directory and any shortcuts you created, and the game's user data directory in ~/.local/share if you don't want to keep your saves & settings)

User data is stored under ~/.local/share/rct3

Full details are in the readme.txt and release notes. Here is the download link:

rct3_wine.tar.xz
(35.6 kB, SHA256: 6dd25f5bd9b64ccc5017eff07bfd0fbc168fe998f8644a6e539eef589a37a0a7)

Updated 2020/03/17: Updated winewrap.shlib. Updated to Wine Staging 5.1.

The wrapper uses Wine Staging 5.1. Wine, Winetricks and the redistributables for some required components will be downloaded automatically if not present; to avoid redownloading for other scripts the downloaded Wine package will be stored in ~/.cache/winewrap and the redistributables will be stored in subdirectories in ~/.cache/winetricks

I've not completely played through the game but I ran through some of the tutorials & played for a while and there doesn't seem to be any problems. However if anyone does run into any problems then post in this thread, Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ &amp; Discussion and/or The "Judas&trade; does this run in Wine" thread v1.173.

For more of my Linux Wine wrappers check out post 3 in this thread: Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ &amp; Discussion

For RCT/RCT2 consider using OpenRCT2, which runs natively on Linux: https://openrct2.org

Thanks for another great wrapper!! Zero problems with this one too!
Thank you for testing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 in Wine.
I've tested this one before and could never get past the DRM because I have the DVD version.
Do you have any tips on this?
In my experience DRM often causes problems when trying to get things running in Wine. I'd recommend just getting the GOG version the next time it goes on sale (I only have the GOG version).
this is unbelievable, I've been struggling to get this game working with music on steam proton for weeks and I stumble upon this thread and bam I have it up and running in 30 minutes.

Thank you so much for this amazing wrapper!
