1.Downloading
Simply dowload the ctr/cfr and save it to a location. I prefer the Desktop as it is easy to access.

2.File Types
There are three commonly used file types:
.Zip
.Rar
.Exe
2.1 Opening Zip
Zip can usually be opened with Windows Explorer. Some prefer to use unziping programs (see 2.4 programs)
2.2 Opening Rar
Rar has to be opened with a program (see 2.4 programs)
2.3 Opening Exe
Exe usually installs it to the default location for Rct3.
2.4 Programs
Commonly programs are:
WinZip (http://www.winzip.com/)
WinRAR (http://www.rarlab.com/)
PowerArchive (http://www.powerarchiver.com/)
Picozip (http://www.picozip.com/)
Winace (http://www.winace.com/)
7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org/)

3.Installing
Since the two are installed differently I will use a sub-section for each one.

3.1 Installing Cfr
Cfr is installed to \Program Files\Atari\RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 \Style\Custom\[Creators Name]. The custom folder needs to be created manually. Be sure to read the read-me for specific instuctions on the creators name.

3.1 Installing Ctr
Ctr is installed to two different locations. Ctr installtion locations can defer from creator to creator.

Track-

4.Crashes

4.1 Cfr
A common mistake I see is a mistake in the creators name. If it crashes go back into the Themed/Custom folder and make sure it is spelled correctly. Another thing if is to people work on it sometimes the name includes too people so check that too. As always read the read-me carefully

Also, (Sorry Too Add,) But A Mistake In CFR Installing Is That People Delete The Foler That Contains The Folder With The Files. You MUST Keep it The Way it is. ;)

I'm sorry it drives insane when I see this done. There is more than one type of Hard Drive letter such as E:,H:,D:,F:. Sorry had to point it out.

^^ Yes, but this file is not in any of the drives you mentioned!

Now if there was just a tutorial on how to work CTR Creator... Maybe I should ask the creator himself! ;)
