No patients coming to my hospital
« on: June 23, 2016, 07:56:15 PM »
Hi,

I have installed Corsixth and chosen to run it off the original files from the TH CD that I have moved into a folder on my C drive.
I have built a few rooms, hired a few doctors, nurses, ganiters and a receptionist. I have a reception desk.

I have also clicked the timer, to open the hospital.

and 1 hour later - I stille have no patients.

What have i done wrong?

I have tried changing the file location, first time it was a folder on my C drive with all the files from the CD, and i have tried just coping the HOSP folder and using that, and i have tried asking the game to refer directly the CD - nothing seems to help - no Patients.

What to do?

It sounds like everything should be okay, so either attach your save here or open an issue on github so we can see if you have missed something

Attaching saves in either place can be a problem, so put on somewhere like dropbox and include a link to it.

Is it a custom map and do paths run to the edge of the map?

Where do I find the saved games?

For me first patient arrived 21st March after I completed the ward and clicked on the watch.

We need to rule out file corruption at your end.  Read https://github.com/CorsixTH/CorsixTH/wiki/Frequently-Asked-Questions#windows.  If you have copied hosp folder from your cd things should work, if you however downloaded the files from a wares site then that would by why things aren't working.

Have you tried running from demo files to see if that works for you? Click on the portal link at the top of this site as there is a link for the demo files there and we know they work with limits

I am using files from a CD version of Theme hospital that i have in my old game collection. I remember once or twice having the same problem on my old computer, when using the cd version - but a reboot of the game, or a restart of a level usually helped.

now it is however not working.

Any idea which file/code it is, that instigates arrival of patients?

I have now tried to pull the hosp file off the cd again, and tried refering to that folder, even though it should be the same - right?

Anyway - didnt make a difference.

on the dropbox there is now the latest saved game, using the new hosp folder

Links removed as data should not be shared

Your data does not work for me and throws a lot of errors

did you copy the folder from the cd as a whole or bit by bit as some files are in the wrong location to have come from the cd like that?

LANG-0.DAT is in the wrong folder
Should be in data yours is in anims

Moving that makes your data work for me and patients arrive

the others are already in the data folder

What language do you want to play the game in?
