- In Zoo Tycoon, you'll be challenged to build the most healthy and vibrant zoo possible.

Which is a good thing since you'll need to build, manage, and maintain a zoo with over 200 animals, exhibits, and zoo materials.
- Hi, I had the same problem, and i fixed it. Basically my parents got me the original zoo tycoon 2, my mum tried it on her lap top, but her laptop had been hacked and it didn't work, i got zoo tycoon zoo keeper gold collection, and i tried it but it said it couldn't find the graphics for the game, after trying a lot of things a few days passed.
Here is the video game “Zoo Tycoon: Complete Collection”! Released in 2003 on Windows, it's still available and playable with some tinkering. The game is set in a compilation / shovelware theme.

Got the download to work fine but the game keeps opening on a enhancement of the game window a quarter of the size of the window. are there any ways to shrink the size of the game to properly fit my computer screen or is this a 'cheating bug'? Thank you in advance.
Hello, So all goes well except when I try to remove a fence from a paddock the Beug games and leave all
How do I get the marina and dino animals? I know you have to do reseach and progress in the game to get certain animals but I don't have anyone from the marinal mania and dinosaur digs DLCs
For those having a problem with all the animals not appearing, you have to research them to unlock them.
I have the same problem as AQUADRAGNELL, i remember that there were a lot more animals from all dlcs, like panthers, siberian tigres, etc. What happened?
When I installed the game I didn't have all the dinos or marine animals what happened?
Download works perfect!!! Thank you so much!
For those having problems with 'Insert CD' errors and the like. Windows likes to do something silly whenever it updates- it un-mounts all CD's. So if you still have the MARINA.iso (Which there shouldn't be a reason you do not.) That's the ISO you need to mount once again with a right click. I just created a shortcut to it on my desktop next to the complete collection icon and re-mount the file with a right-click on the shortcut. That should fix anyone's Insert CD problems.
So I worked out why KC's fix works, and can recommend a shorter route for anyone. In the ini file, just change fullscreen = 1 to fullscreen = 0 and it should boot fine. Seems to be an issue where a lot of older games crash on startup on windows 10 if they are fullscreen.
Dear ZSO, hire a zookeeper. Maintenance workers are there to clean up garbage and fix fences, not feed the animals. I'd recommend playing the tutorial :)
my maintanance worker doesnt wanna give food to the animals :o what do i do??!
RE Previous comment, sometimes I can get past the 'No CD' message, in which case it appears for a second, disappears, and leaves me unable to use my mouse for a minute until it presumably crashes. I am not at all computer savvy, but I do really want to play zoo tycoon i-i
Downloaded OK, but when I try to open it says 'please insert CD ROM'. I tried the 'NOCD' file thinking maybe that is meant for that, but it doesn't open anything. Is there anything I can do?
I got it to download, works fine. Thanks (-:
Works fine, I haven't got any problems (win 10)
You have to mount the zoo iso file and then the marina file which contain both expansions. If you have the no CD error just use the NOCD exe.
My game starts fine. However, crashes after 5 min of gameplay.
If anyone knows a fix please let me know.
For anyone having trouble running the game, here is what I did to make it work on my windows 10 laptop:
1. I started by doing what everyone else in the comments said to do: mount the game via daemon tools and install it. The problem was that clicking on the game did not result in anything.
2. I watched a youtube video which told me to run the game in Windows XP compatibility mode. Same result.
3. I saw a suggestion somewhere to rename the zoo.exe file to zoodemo.exe. This caused the loading screen to pop up and then disappear.
4. In a last ditch effort, I tried copy-and-pasting the contents of zoo.ini into zoodemo.ini (which was automatically created when I renamed the exe file). THIS WORKED. I don't know why, but it did. Not that these files are found inside the Zoo Tycoon folder of your program files.
I don't know why this worked, but I decided to post it in case it helps anyone else.
Any ideas for Mac?
it says the setup cannot find or read the language specific setup resource dll
I downloaded works fine, but the packs were not included?
Got the base game to work. How do you add marine and Dino digs?
anybody have an installation code that the old games required
I have the original disk. but windows 10 stops it from installing it

For anyone having trouble with the game not starting, heres a video tutorial on how to solve the problem in the grand majority of cases: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhBez_vKxNY
Game doesn't open. Been following some of the guides in the comments but nothing works. Also the patch won't work either.
For those having trouble with the 'insert disc' problem. Replace the zoo.exe in the game's directory (always know where you install your games!) with this file.
Shut it Boomer, this game made me actually give a shit about the planet...

I LOVE THIS GAME
The game doesn't open to begin with.
It crashed on my mac while its loading as well, any idea on how to fix it? I have it running on Wine
in response to tia, having the same issues :(
Was playing just fine for a couple days, now I get an error message that pops up upon startup saying Please insert your Zoo Tycoon CD-ROM.
Anyone else encounter this?
- Download and mounting both images with DaemonTools goes without a problem. - - - Installing both of them as well.
- Bonus Animals have no instructions on how to install, will post if/after I figure it out...
- Patch doesn't work (saying 'Your computer does not have an appropiate version of the game installed. Setup can patch only the original Zoo Tycoon: Dinosaur Digs Version.')
Tried to install it with wine on my mac but the game crashes when its is charging.
I just downloaded this and ran it using Wine HQ on my Mac. It worked perfectly!
- download the file
- open it, type wine then open the downloaded folder and drag the 'setup.exe' file into wine. this will set up the game. When you click play the game it will give you an error. Just open wine again, type wine, then drag in the setup.exe file one more time. Click play and you should be good to go!
I find I'm unable to rename any of the guests or staff. Anyone else having this issue?

Hopefully this works!
can i play this game without CD ?
Hopefully someone here can help because this game is outrageously priced on Amazon...
So I've got it on Daemon, and I can get into the installer. But when I try to install the game, it says 'Zoo Tycoon encountered a disk error while writing to the file. Make sure your hard disk is not full, and that the file is not in use.'
Any tips on how to fix this? My hard disk is certainly not full. I feel life I'm so close but so far!
Is anyone having trouble with the zip file? I've tried using WinRAR, 7Zip and JZip and they all act like the file is corrupted. :( Is there another download link?
gforce man2020-03-27-4 points
its good but man its missing alot of animals like the T Rex and the Dolphin
I have downloaded this. I am eager to play!
Could someone kindly give me a simple step by step on how to make it work? I tried with another game and failed so I gave up.
This is what worked for me:
To run the base game in Daemon, use 'quick mount' and select the ZOO_TYCN file. You will do this to launch the game each time.
To utilize the expansion packs, do the process listed above, but choose the file, 'MARINA'. Install, and then open a saved zoo file from the base game (unsure if this part is even necessary, but I was already playing the base game). A pop-up should say that new animals and such are available.
For the people who are getting the error message about 'please insert CD', go to your File Explorer and open up the CD Drive. In there you should find the game! There will be several folders, to start the game select the folder labeled 'Setup'
A blast from the past
I downloaded this, but only the base game runs. Are there special steps I missed to get the expansions working? I'm not super tech-savvy
Hello, I've download the game, but when i open it, it says 'Please insert your Zoo Tycoon: Complete Collection CD-ROM'. I don't have the CD. I read that I needed to download Daemon to solve this problem, so I did. But now I don't know what to do.. I can't choose a Zoo Tycoon file which opens in Daemon. Hope someone can help me. Thanks!
is this what them whipper snappers played on the google back then? stupid millennials
