we are pleased to announce that update 3 for RCT3 Wild is now available for download. This update addresses the slowdown issues when constructing or placing rides or scenery that occurred with Wild update 1 installed. Note that this update optimizes the copy protection system, but does not replace it, you will still need to use either the original RCT3 or Wild disk to run the game.
Do not install this update if you do not have RCT3 Wild installed on your computer!
Wild update 3 can be downloaded by clicking here
To install Wild update 3, follow the steps below:
