Changes and improvements[edit]

While RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition is a re-release of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum! under a different name, some minor changes were made such as:

  • Change: Splash screens after launching the game include a new copyright splash screen,[1] the new Frontier Foundry logo splash screen (no roller coaster animation), and a QLOC splash screen (on the Nintendo Switch), but excludes the Atari and ATI splash screens.
  • Change: The character-naming cheat code "Atari" that made peeps applaud was removed from the game.
  • Change: User data location that included MusicGenre.txt and Options.txt changed from:
    • Microsoft Windows: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Atari\RCT3 to C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Frontier\RCT3
    • macOS: To be added...
  • Improvement: Native widescreen support in high definition.
    • Microsoft Windows and macOS: In addition to old screen resolutions, new screen resolutions natively added in the game (without having to edit the Resolution values in Options.txt) are 1280 x 720 (16:9), 1366 x 768 (16:9), 1600 x 900 (16:9), 1600 x 1024 (16:10), 1680 x 1050 (16:10), 1768 x 992 (~16:9, 221:124), 1920 x 1080 (16:9). 16-bit and 32-bit color options of each screen resolution that were in Platinum! have been removed.
