Introduction Theme Hospital was originally released by Bullfrog in 1997. CorsixTH is an open source clone of the original game with the aim of being able to run on more platforms as well as correcting some bugs and adding new enhancements/features. Now it runs on the wii too! Game Setup CorsixTH requires the resource files from the original Theme Hospital game. If you don't have a copy of the original game you can get the demo version (available here) although it only has one level and is missing several features. Copy the HOSP folder from the original disc to somewhere on your SD/USB drive. When you start CorsixTH for the first time it should show a folder browser for you to locate this folder. It should then restart and go to the main menu. Downloads Game files (extract to /apps directory, launch from HBC): http://www.tueidj.net/CorsixTH-wii.zip Source Code (including SDL and LUA libraries): http://www.tueidj.net/CorsixTH-wii-src.zip Music The original Theme Hospital used midi music, and CorsixTH can play these files. However since the wii has no midi hardware you will need timidity-compatible instrument patch files such as those found at the Freepats project. Once you have a patch set copy the .cfg file you wish to use to "/etc/timidity/timidity.cfg" on your SD/USB drive and put the patch files in "/usr/local/lib/timidity". If possible try and use a smaller patch set which uses substitute instruments, since there's not a lot of memory available (for example if using the freepats set use crude.cfg instead of the default freepats.cfg). Bugs The CorsixTH project is still a work a progress, and there are bugs. Most of the time you'll get an error on-screen asking if you wish to attempt to continue - it's not really a good idea since you'll end up with patients and/or staff stuck in doorways or trying to perform other actions. The best thing to do at that point is to load the autosave file and hope it doesn't happen again. Controls If you want to play the game like the original PC version you can connect a USB mouse and keyboard. Otherwise you can use the wiimote on its own, wiimote+nunchuk or classic controller. Wiimote Pointer/Nunchuk stick/Classic left stick - Move mouse cursor Wiimote A/Classic b - Left click Wiimote B/Classic a - Right click DPAD - Scroll screen Plus - Pause Minus - Escape (clear topmost dialog) Video Demo [yt]hlXzQQsVkZA[/yt] Credits The original CorsixTH project page can be found here.
