Summary of changes in beta 5 (released 2010-12-24)

CorsixTH - Beta 5

Beta 5 of CorsixTH has been released on December 24th, 2010, as our annual Christmas present to Theme Hospital fans. Due to the out-of-schedule release of beta 4 at SVN revision 1000, there are not an excess of flashy new features, but beta 5 does contain a number of bug fixes and improvements over beta 4.

Amongst other fixes, a bug was fixed that caused an error when building the operating theatre in certain cases, along with one which caused bone-idle patients. Many of you will be pleased to know that cheats were added to the game, activated in the same way as the original game. Finally, to address the boredom which comes from seeing the same levels over and over again, we've thrown in a brand new custom map called Avatar with a unique challenge, and if that isn't enough, additional custom maps can be found in our community forums.

The full changelog is shown below.

I just found out about this, and I'm really addicted! It would surely be nice if there was any way of getting this on my iPhone or iPad. I've got one question though and sorry if this was asked before, but is there any way of editing ir removing rooms?

Comment by project member, Dec 30, 2010

Use the third button from the left with a question mark on it. The cursor will turn into scissors and you can then click on a room to edit it.

Thank you for the reply Edvin, I already tried that button but turned out I was clicking rooms in the wrong way (on walls) instead of the middle of a room.
