Never realized how sexist this game was. Doctors and handymen are men and nurses and receptionists are women.
Aside from that, does anyone know
1. If I were to increase the heat of the radiators for the first 29 or 30 days of the month and then reduce it for the last day, would I only be charged the lower amount? But will the patients then register this as being cold or will they still be warm? The question is whether the warmth level of patients and the cost is measured daily or monthly.
2. Does the time of year matter for the radiators? Whenever I have played I usually reduce the heat during the summer months (I suppose summer is relative). But I don′t know if this makes a difference. Do patients want radiators throughout the year?
Xander, try a program called Dosbox. you can google it... Let′s say you extracted this game to the directory C:/Hospital. Now run Dosbox and type: mount c c:/hospital - now lets say the .exe file is called ′hospital′, so just type: ′hospital′ and hit enter. Make sure you run setup in the same way to configure the sound... Ignore the quotation marks.

EA Origin now has this title available. Price: under $5. They have it working with DOSBox…but it still has a hitch with the mouse drivers sometimes. Still, if you need a version set up for you for a modern computer you can get it there.
Im missing out on the classics so I have to find the most classic of all classic games to experience how classic they were back in the old days
There′s a Windows XP and onward Windows OS compatible version available on themehospital.co.uk so if you′re facing some compatibility issues, it′s best to try that out.
Game works great but I have to play with no sound.. theres a terrible distorted bell ringing sound when you mouse over ANYTHING. The sounds that are supposed to come with the game are fine but whatever was added to the clicks kinda detracts from the game. Other than that its great! 8/10
One of the greatest sim type games ever. Great humor and art style. I always keep coming back to this. Bullfrog was amazing back in the day.
theme hospital is a really good game because you get patients and doctors. you get to create you own hospital aswell its just a really good game
If you ever need help on this game… visit youtube.com/classicretrog 😉
I don′t need dosbox to play this game actually, I have fixed and maintained my old computer for more than 15 years
Very addictive and funny game! I played it many years ago and I keep it for my child as one of the 10 best games ever.
how do you play it i download it but i dont know what to click on to star the game?!..
ok for other people i have found out how to save if you put your mouse pointer to the top of the screen it brings up a file menu you hold down the LMB and release it when over the save function
lets address a problem
for the people saying that this game runs a little slow you need to manually set the cycles to more than 12000 in the configuration file for dosbox
the game is awesome but cannot find out how to save the game can somebody help me with this
este juego lo jugue muchas muchas veces en todas la pcs que tuvimos en casa .. y cada vez que me acuerdo .. lo vuelvo a instalar .. Es Un JuEgO gEnIaL !!!!!!!!!!
Hey, you can find it free for a limited time in Origin 😀 I′m downloading it.
Please download Dosbox to run this game!!! it will not run on newer operating systems (XP,vista,7,8.1,10, etc)!!! Just drag the game folder onto the dosbox icon and type hospital.exe and hit enter
I remember this game now…haha, definitely a blast to play.
I just can′t remember how to employ a psychiatrist when all of the doctors looking for employment are surgeons. 🙁
Own a legit copy, it′s available on Origin for anyone who can′t get the DL to work. Pretty cheap, too.
Doesn′t work to win 8.1 :(, someone know what i have to do to play this greatfull game??? Pls help!!!
so the theme of the hospital is spun on a wheel @ the start of the game or what?
can they make the bathrooms private in this game i dont want see patients using the toilet
I used to like creating rooms and putting doctors and nurses but I got rid of the door so they could not escape from the room.
The music won′t work on DOSBOX i can get the game and sound effects to not work but the music isn′t anyone know what im doing wrong?
How do you run games that are 32 Bit on a 64bit system? I have a literate knowledge of computers but I am by no means into programming or reprogramming.
i think your supposed to right click furniture to rotate it.
ps. this game is way too addictive…
No music, and the only only difficulty option is ′doctor′. Any fixes? Its annoying, and takes the depth away from the game. Its a shame…
lol why does everyone like this game? its so boring and the only bullfrog game i have played that i do not like
To anyone who feels bad for ea for not downloading this from origin wee story: I brought populous the beginning, had correct graphics card and settings…..IT DIDN′T WORK!, I downloaded it under "Abandonware" it bloody worked so maybe EA should fix their dam games first!
– I got a refund so no screw ea
is it really legal to download this from here? because I just saw this on Origin for $4.99
How the hell do you rotate the furniture? I cannot figure it out for the life of me…! it said you right click to rotate but you can′t do that on mac… wtf?!?!
Hi everybody! I found the answer about how to change the language of the game.
You have to open with notepad the file named "hospital.cfg" and write (where there is wrote LANGUAGE="ENG") the other kind of language you want in play (ex: "GER"). Bye bye!
Is it possible to find this game in italian language? Or find just the file language pack to translated it?
Ho do you play this once it is downloaded? It is just a file in my folder, but how do you play?
But the game does not want to save! So I have to start afresh every time I launch the game. Any ideas how to solve the problem?
Works fine using DosBox, (Win XP) Thanks. Have not played game fully, tested to see if it worked. If I enjoy the game I will purchase it from GoG, thanks for allowing me to try it first.
