Hospital Café / Re: Is CorsixTH dead?
« on: June 01, 2017, 07:56:39 PM »
I'm afraid if the status quo continues the pace is going to appear rather glacial.

I took over the project more or less by accident a few years ago. I wrote the movie code and got it merged, then I volunteered to take over the Windows packaging from Lego3. I pushed for the migration from googlecode to GitHub with Jorgen and ended up as a project owner in the process, along with Corsix who was already fairly absent by that time, Lego3 who was really leading the project back then in my opinion; and Jorgen who was also doing the SDL2 transition. For a short time there was a lot of momentum, more than the project had seen in some time, then Lego3 got married and pulled back from the project; Jorgen moved on to other things after the SDL2 port; and I was left as the project leader shortly after joining.

Since then there has been some significant outside contribution, and the irc channel is still active most days, but the pace has slowed. I have an expanding family myself, and coding interests outside of CorsixTH, which preclude dedicating a lot of time to the project. The project needs someone who has the time to fully understand it, and to massively overhaul the state system to prevent the sort of untraceable errors that are happening currently (with people getting stuck, rooms becoming inoperable, and so forth) We have discussed the idea of breaking save game compatibility for a release so that we can make that happen; but without anyone knowledgeable and dedicated enough there would be no gain.

As is, I will try to review and merge patches, and I will definitely coach anyone interested in becoming a serious contributor to the project. I hope I can also get another release out in the near future - but in the mean time I recommend people use the appveyor releases since they are current and for the most part stable.

I hope that answers any questions you might have about the state of the project.

This was a known bug, it should be fixed in the latest release candidate.

I also ask that you remove the arialuni.ttf font from your download. That font is bundled with a number of products (Microsoft Office, recent versions of OSX, etc.) but it is not free.

As for the header (include, language names) mentioned by tobylane above. You can use the existing header from the appropriate *_chinese.lua language file.

Hospital Café / Re: Next version of CorsixTH
« on: October 19, 2014, 04:39:59 AM »
As you may have noticed CorsixTH 0.40 Beta 1 is out now.  If you're in the mood for testing something newer (with epidemics) I encourage trying it out.

The only thing holding back lan mode is that no one has volunteered to code it (and followed through) yet.  It will take substantial dedication from a volunteer to work LAN into CorsixTH.  Because no one is currently working on it, there is no schedule for when it will happen.

I'm also looking forward to the day it does, maybe as much as o0Julia0o.   ;)

Hello Jim,

My understanding is that we're open to supplementing any of the in game resources, assuming the result is good quality and captures the spirit of the original.  In the mean time you could attach your music here in the forums for anyone interested.

that is fine

I only put up the orginal sounds as a stop gap

I imagine EA has copyright on those sounds.  We'd want to make sure whatever we mixed in was original or free: though we could always play those original sounds separately while playing the movie like we do for the original movies until we have our own sound.

While you're at it Grimdoc, there's also AOPAPER, AMENU*, AINGAME, and AINLEVEL which should be LOPAPER, MMENU*, WINGAME, and WINLEVEL respectively.

Very nice!

A list of all the video files with all their names, content and length was made by me a long time ago.
You can find it here:

Could someone confirm this list?  In mine all the videos they call AOSE... are called LOSE...  I can compensate for both namings if it's really correct.

There are no restrictions on length or dimensions.  The movie code signals to the game when the movie is finished, and the movie is scaled to the game window but letter-boxed to preserve aspect ratio.  I think 600x800 is a good target, but to be honest I haven't experimented.

I'm not sure if you're still around Wolter, but I'm fairly far along in  the process of adding video support to CorsixTH.  I can tell you that to be used in the game the video should be < 30fps, in any format ffmpeg supports (h264, mpeg2, smk, mp4...), and it should be named and cut the same as the level videos in the game except with the appropriate extension.

e.g. for the transition to level 1 call it: AREA01V.MP4, level 2: AREA02V.MP4 and so forth.

If we have your permission to use them, I'm sure other people in the community are willing to slice them and add sound.

Hospital Café / Re: So many pharmacy deaths :(
« on: November 20, 2012, 02:29:25 AM »
Very informative thread; I had noticed that patients were much more likely to die in Corsix than they were in the original game, but I didn't know the reason.

Official announcements / Re: Latest release: CorsixTH 0.01
« on: November 17, 2012, 04:14:54 PM »
Is there any chance we could get a list of the changes planned for the eventual version 0.2?

CorsixTH is developed by a team of volunteers who at this state mostly work on what they want to.  You can see the current things people are working on at: and by following the issue tracker.  Some of those things may be finished when 0.2 is cut, but we don't make any guarantees.

Of course as long as you're not pushy (after all we're doing this on our own time for fun), feel free to express interest in things you'd like to see in live chat, or the appropriate forums.  I for one like to develop things people would appreciate. ;-)
