CorsixTH Beta 8 Released

Some previous releases of CorsixTH have not been reported on this blog, so it may seem like a sudden jump. However CorsixTH Beta 8 now features large amounts of the original game.To use it, you’ll have to have the Theme Hospital files. The demo files will not allow all the dialogs to be accessed. If you already have it, that is fine. Otherwise pop over to some abandonware site in order to download it – this linkworks fine for me. Extract the files to some location and remember it, for you will need to select it later.Download from the CorsixTH page the correct version. The “Windows Installer (32- and 64-bit)” will be correct version for most people. It should install three versions – DirectX, OpenGL and SDL. SDL should work for everybody, but DirectX or OpenGL could be better depending on your graphics hardware.

A small list of changes include (since Beta 5):

  • People litter, puke, and go to the toilet (possibly on the floor if there aren’t toilets around)
  • Doctors go crazy if they are too tired, and also slowly gain skill on the job.
  • VIPs are now implemented
  • Patients can now die
  • The boilers breaking is now implemented
  • Plus lots more…

    Does the game have a frame rate problem? It feels like the game is either capped at a very low frame rate, or the refresh rate is low (my monitor is supposed to be 120 Hz), because the game suffers from serious input lag when I move the cursor around. In a management game like this it’s kind of important to be able to move the mouse around quickly without any problems. I run the game on Vista x64.

      It worked fine for me. Try each of the three modes – SDL, DirectX and OpenGL. The one which suits your hardware/driver combination best will probably have a significantly better framerate.

    My game hangs when I try to build the X-Ray diagnosis. It happens when I click the button to finish the room. Tried SDL, DirectX and OpenGL


  4. Quick question… is there an option to delete rooms completely? I thought this feature was in the original game but I can’t seem to do it.

    Love it guys, from one programmer to another keep it up!
    I had an issue a couple of times earlier editing a rooms layout and attempting to press the tick whilst there was someone within the wireframe. After that the staff member just froze and couldn’t be awoken, it said something about a timer. I should have saved the log but I just clicked through it sorry.

    It’s awesome !
    You’re doing a great job ! I’m a big fan of TH, so I’m a big fan of your work on OpenTH now !
    Good luck for the next (even if it’s not “luck” ^^).


  7. I just love your initiative! I hope you expand this more than the original version and maybe add a few new features :-)
    Lemme know if you need any help from a Java/C++ programmer :-)

    • lego3 Says:

      C++ programmers are always welcome to join the team. :-) Contact me (lego3 aka Edvin at the googlecode site, one of the owners) if you’re interested.


  8. Is this project still on-going? Many links on http://openth.wordpress.com are broken.
    I love the project and new features added which weren’t available in the original.


    • Yes it is still active, Although it seems alot of the developers are busy with real life stuff. But it’s far from a dead project :-)

    • lego3 Says:

      CorsixTH is alive, but OpenTH has been dead for quite some time. So if you want updates on corsixTH it’s a better idea to follow us on twitter or facebook.

    Thanks a lot for this hard working! Will you add music remixes? It would be awesome! We can ask in OCRemix or in another webs like it.

    And here is the fix:

    Currently, I cannot use the controls on left side (e.g. hiring new staff members. I can send my save game (demo map) to you if you need one.

    Link exchange is nothing else except it is just placing the other person’s website link on your page at
    suitable place and other person will also do
    similar in favor of you.
