Changelog

Gameplay
  • Feature: Staff speed!
  • Added: All parts of research have been implemented, including machine strength improvements, drug improvements and the "concentrate research" button in the drug casebook.
  • Added: Overdraft charges for having a negative balance.
  • Fix: The length of a day was about half as long as it should be.
  • Fix: A few occurrences of bone-idle patients have been resolved.
  • Fix: Juniors were not correctly labeled as Doctors after promotion.
  • Fix: Some crashes regarding receptionists.
  • Fix: Never charge less than initial cost when reputation is below 500.
  • Fix: Some repair animations were too short.
  • Fix: Don't check winning and losing conditions so often.
  • Fix: Taking loans can now make the player avoid losing.
  • Fix: Level 7 had an emergency with an unavailable disease.
  • Fix: Doctors on their way back to the research room or training room will no longer answer to any calls.
  • Fix: Don't crash if a patient in a machine is sent home.
  • Fix: Various tweaks to the operating theatre logic.
  • Fix: Don't crash if the staff window of a leaving staff member is open when he/she leaves the world.
  • Fix: Persistant data (salary, built rooms etc) are no longer lost after restarting a level.

User Interface
  • Feature: The drug casebook now shows if you can treat a disease or not, and in the latter case the tooltip tells you what is missing. Actual price is shown after some time, instead of charge %.
  • Feature: Press and hold on value buttons will now make the value continue to increase until the button is released again.
  • Feature: The Theme Hospital installation path can be changed from the options menu.
  • Added: The adviser will help out in a few more situations.
  • Fix: Mouse position events such as moving staff around didn't work when scrolling using the arrow keys.
  • Fix: Tooltips are now updated more frequently, most evidently in the research pane.

Translations
  • Feature: CorsixTH now supports TrueType fonts via FreeType2!
  • Feature: To assist translators a new diff file is now created when you choose the debug option "dump strings" (with languages other than English). It contains those strings which are either found in English but not in the given language, or found in the given language but not in English.
  • New languages: Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Russian.

The Windows installer makes a shortcut in the start menu for CorsixTH_DirectX9.exe but the file is named CorsixTH_DirectX.exe. Also what's the best version to use?

I suppose you were one of the unfortunate 6 to download that version before I uploaded the correct one. The shortcut is now created without 9 at the end. If you want zoom you can't use the SDL version. Other than that there's not much that differs.
For the end of the world spell, press Control, Alt, Delete.

Great job on the progresses! I love this project, very well done. However, here's some advise about a bug i couldn't report on google code because of error 500 -.- :

I think there's something wrong with amd64 deb package because no music or staff announcement works. Roling back to beta 5 and every sound works, just to check.

Here's terminal feedback on beta 6 as example:

Consider replacing Lua with LuaJIT to improve performance. Note that there is not currently a 64 bit version of LuaJIT.there is no soundcard
could not load music file 'Sound/Midi/MEND.XMI

(went to synaptics and installed luajit 5.1-2 thinking this was missing but didn't help)

Anyway, i'm already happy playing beta 5 but i would like to appreciate what's been done on 6. Thank you and regards!

(sorry about posting this here, I was eager to point this out)

I believe original debs for Beta6 had some issues. I tried the i386 one and it wouldn't even run! Then I discovered they had been repackaged and all is well now :)

If you do want to try luajit, this is how I did it:
root# aptitude install libluajit-5.1-2
user$ LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libluajit-5.1.so.2 CorsixTH

I hope that's clear :)
