I'm sorry to say Cheat Codes, but I was never able to play Theme Hospital without the money cheat.   :-[  I don't insist on it going through the fax machine -- in fact, I'd rather it didn't.  But something that allows for sneaky funds increases would be good.

As this by far wasn't the only request for cheats (many asked on facebook and other places), I implemented cheats today in r1067. Have fun :)

"It's not working" is not a really helpful problem report - try to follow this general recipe for problem reports so we can help you better: ;)
1) What exactly did you do, 2) What did you expect to happen, 3) What happened instead.

Without any information especially on 1), I can only guess:
- did you download and install a dev build of r1067 or newer? http://th.corsix.org/corsix-th-latest.html I implemented the cheats in that revision, they are NOT in beta 4. They will be in the next release, of course.
- what did you do to activate the cheats? There are two ways, 1) wait for a fax to appear. enter 24328 (not on your keyboard but the buttons on the fax machine) and the green button. OR 2) activate debug mode, select from the menu debug->cheats.
- after the above step, unlike original TH you do not activate a cheat by pressing some key combination, but a window appears where each cheat is represented as a button you can click on.


If all of these things don't help please check if there's an error message in the console / game log and create a bug report including the error.

Sorry 'bout that.  So I tried to reproduce the problem to report it, going via the fax route, and this time the cheat menu came up and everything worked!  I'd like to be able to do it through debug mode too but I don't know how to get in -- all the documentation I've read says lots about what can be done once you get there, but I haven't seen the part that says how.

But anyway, cheats are working -- thanks so much!

I'd like to see litter and vomit,
staff speed,
happy/unhappy triggers
and the correct visualisation of conterminated person, and person without backbone.
Actually these are features of the original game ...
My wish list 12/21/2010
- implementation: animation of contaminated person
- implementation: animation of person without backbone
- implementation: missing menues (graphs)
- fix: KI is implemented but not really playing
- change startreputation

My vote is for staff speed, and finally a fix for patients getting stuck randomly!

Come to think of it, I'd love to be able to pick up patients!   ;D  If that would skew regular gameplay too much, an "enable patient pickup" option in the lovely new Cheat Menu would be fine.

I once had a patient stuck in Research because I snatched the doctor about to autopsy him to drop into Surgery -- not a real problem, but a bit annoying.

Picking up patients was a feature in the original, too :)

Priority for me is fixing the frozen doctors and patients bugs, and the facility to read replacement sprites where available.
I am thinking we could first look if a replacement png file exists, if so use that, otherwise fall back to using the default one
from the original theme hospital game files.

Also, the audio.lua script enables dumping of the audio files using:

      --self:dumpSoundArchive[[E:\CPP\2K8\CorsixTH\DataRaw\Sound\]]

We could possibly have a similar dump facility at an appropriate code point for the sprite files:

  -- self:dumpSpriteArchive[[E:\CPP\2K8\CorsixTH\DataRaw\Sprites]]
