    Hi All,


    Just thought i'd share this little project I spent a few hours on today, works really well with the touchscreen. Just need you guys to test it, I am aware of some issues which I have mentioned below. (Thanks Sebt3 for an awesome guide!!)


    Usage: You require the original Theme Hospital files (best to have full game as it works better (ebay / amazon / Bullfrog), you also require Timidity from the OpenPandora Archive


    Controls:


    Touchscreen / left nub = Cursor and clicky thing


    Spacebar = Rotate objects.


    Known Bugs: ( I will report these to the Corsix-TH team)


    ** With Mac OS X you will have issues with the ._ files (Mainly in the MIDI folder) where music is loaded and ._ files are seen in the jukebox (run dot_clean in Terminal before putting files on pandora or use Ubuntu to install these files for now).


    Download link : Download I tried to attach files but it didn't let me as it was too large

    you can easily find it in google or at the Underdogs but you should find it on eBay or something.

    Works near perfect I "lost" 3 hours last night playing this,


    occasionally had a timing error which asked me (in game) if I wanted it to recover yes always worked, and I had one doctor just freeze so I fired him and he didnt move anywhere


    except that works fine, loading and saving games everything


    Dpad + touchscreen is perfect for this thanks alot


    tip if you want to hover over something because you dont know what it is use the nubs as mouse,

    I'm going to show my absolute ignorance here, but is there any guide on installing this properly on the Pandora? I've unpacked the zip folder and gotten the game files, but I'm not sure what to put where?


    ok, a little bit of trail and error and I got the game up and running! My new problem is that the game runs in a window too big for the Pandora screen, can I select a fullscreen mode somewhere?

    Yeah I had the timing error which stopped a patient inside a building, I will report this with the CorsixTH development team unless its not fixed in the latest SVN build??

    You should just have to place the whole lot into the /Pandora/apps folder (or if you like put the PND in the Apps folder and the corsixTH folder in appdata to allow game to work full screen by default etc you must have forgotten tocopy something over as you NEED everything.

    Thanks for the info, didn't have all the correct files in the appdata directory, so just needed to sort that out (and re-edit my config file),and everything's working properly! :)
