Hospital Café / Re: How To: activate cheats on Beta 4
« on: December 08, 2010, 05:29:27 PM »
Uhm, that's not how it works - you can't just zip up the lua files of r1067 or so and use them with the beta4 binary. This can and will result in errors.
You can see this in the console when starting the game: if the line "Warning: Compiled binary is out of date. CorsixTH will likely fail to run until you recompile the binary." appears it is a bad idea to continue as things WILL go wrong.


I don't really understand why people would prefer to download a zip and unpack it into their beta4 folder, rather than download a zip and unpack it somewhere new and have a dev build. (granted, non-windows users don't get dev build binaries)
But if you insist on offering this kind of thing for beta 4, please do it properly - that is, apply the changes I did in r1067 to beta4, fix any problems that may occur, and offer the changed lua files (not all!) in a correctly packed zip (the one you posted has the subfolders in Lua outside the Lua folder).

Please don't take my criticism personally - I'm grateful that you want to help and do something like this, but in its current form it will only cause problems for users and misleading bug reports for us. ;)

"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.

Wow, that's an interesting design :D
I have to give it a go some time soon ;)

What's the idea with the fairly normally looking building in the south?

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 :)
