I have a MacBook pro that uses OS X 10.7.3 (newest version of Lion) with 4 GBs of Ram. I am purchasing Atari's RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum for Mac from here: Before I buy it, I need to know if it will work with my MacBook Pro. I also use a lot of memory, so I was wondering if I should also purchase more 2 more GBs of Ram.


I would appreciate it if someone were to help me with this situation. Thanks.

Joshers2005 (and futureceoofapple), I have some important new to tell you:


Joshers2005, you and your friend did not do enough research...both of you are wrong. Sadly, the copy of Rollercoaster Tycoon Platinum for Mac is not legal. First of all, Atari and Frontier are the official producers of Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, not Aspyr. Furthermore, Atari and Frontier they only intended the game to be created for Microsoft, not for Apple (Aspry has "ported" the game for OS X). Aspry has no relationship with Atari or Frontier, therefore, making this product illegal. If you really don't believe me, then ask youself this: Why is there no link to the official RollerCoaser Tycoon site within Aspyr's game page and why are most of their games discontinuted? Futureceoofapple was originally correct. If you really want RollerCoaster Tycoon that bad, then I would stay away from getting this and purchase Paralells 5.0 to download the game from Atari's offial site.


For your question on installing an application with rosetta within might be able to work depending on your version of Lion and your model, but I wouldn't risk wasting $30 on a program that won't run correctly...and even if it does run correctly, you could have an illegal registration.


Good luck. Hope this helps.
