A patch is a set of changes to a computer program or its supporting data designed to update, fix, or improve it. This includes fixing security vulnerabilities and other bugs, with such patches usually being called bugfixes or bug fixes, better source needed and improving the functionality, usability. Bug description: the game works but you can't access the bottom / right corner of the game. So you can't quit the menu. This bug is now fully fixed (i hope so!). Here is the way to fix: 1. Launch the game and see that your game isn't runing well - your screen is cut and you can access to the bottom of the right corner.

CorsixTH is an open source clone (a game engine recreation) of Theme Hospital that aims to get the game running on modern platforms, since the original release was only developed for DOS/Windows 9x (Origin and GOG use the DOSBox compatibility layer). You can download the installer from GitHub here and point it to the location of the original game. Once you have this installed, you won't need to run HOSPITAL.EXE anymore; if you choose to put CorsixTH as a shortcut on the desktop, it should effectively replace the original game. Also note that you usually get better results using a 'clean' version of the original, i.e. one that isn't patched.
While the recreation's stables have every feature implemented, the update cycle is very slow. The latest fixes and features are on the development branch, which doesn't have builds and doesn't receive as much testing. However, it may solve bugs you encounter with the current stable. The GitHub repository's wiki has a page detailing how you can compile it for your system.
Getting the game to run at all on modern machines is difficult due to the age of the game. However, there are several steps you can follow that may get it working. It is suggested to check if the game works after each paragraphs as different users will have different settings.
Input the distance between the equipment origins.1830mm in the OFFset X box, then hit Apply and Dismiss. The to option can be CE or Rel. Which means relative (the same position in the hierarchy as the copied item). The Object to copy can be CE, List or Pick. (Providing of course that your current element is still /P1501A.) The following form will be displayed.By selecting the Offset menu you can choose that the offset is any of the following: from Element to Element from Design Point to Design Point from Pline to Pline From Edge to Edgeor a mixture of each.

The first is to transfer the HOSP folder from your CD copy onto your storage device, making sure to save the files close to the root of the drive (the entire folder location needing to be under 8 characters, e.g.
C:ThemeH. You will also need to edit the configuration file to allow saves to work (see Game data). Wisin y yandel songs.
Now change your EXE compatibly settings (which may depend on what OS you are using). Right click HOSPITAL.EXE and click properties. going over to Compatibility and choose Windows 95. Then, under Settings check Run in 256 colours, Run in 640 x 480 screen resolution as well as Run this program as an administrator. Fiddle around with these options for the one that suits you if you know what you are doing.
There is also a patched version available, which you can download here. Copy and paste it over to your HOSP folder (replacing any existing files, remembering to edit the configuration file again if you replace that too). If this now gives you mouse lag, see Patches.
If none of those steps work for you, then you will have to use CorsixTH. (see 'CorsixTH').
Mouse Lag Patch - this sets the CPU affinity to 3 instead of 1, though you may need to fiddle with this number. Save this file where your HOSP folder is and run it instead of Hospital.exe.

What is this file?
FULL / CUSTOM install:
200 MB to download, up to 540 MB installed (if all options selected) AKA
The full mod. All content is available.
Available installation types:
Fixes Only [Purist], Standard [Half-Purist], Full [Purists Not Allowed], Custom [Everything customizable].
Goal of Fallout Fixt:
To enhance, fix and improve the Fallout 1 experience. This includes fixing bugs, restoring features, modifying balance, adding features, and many fixes to text/dialog. In addition to that, all other available mods and patches are rolled into Fixt (see below), meaning that Fallout Fixt is the only thing needed for 'the best' Fallout 1 experience. As of the most recent version, this mod fixes roughly 150 bugs still present in the unofficial patches, and adds roughly 170 features. In addition, there are hundreds if not thousands of text&dialog fixes.
Major or 'non-canon' changes to the game by Fallout Fixt are usually optional during installation. If such changes aren't optional at the moment, they will be made optional in a future release. If you notice things that are included that you think shouldn't be, send me an angry email. I will cry for hours due to my feelings being hurt, and then respectfully consider your opinions.
These are all included with my mod; do NOT download or install them:
