I have made some good progress on the reverse engineering of theme hospital’s data formats since the last time I wrote about it. My “Theme Hospital Viewer” is now able to render animations and maps.
Still, there are some unknown pieces to the whole specification. But my guess would be that we are now at about 75% done and nearly all files classified by their format. By now it should be already possible to begin a theme hospital clone – if not even complete it.
So without further ado, I present to you:
The Sourcecode of THViewer includes the sourcecode of dernc. Please read the readme.
A word of warning: the source code of THViewer is quite a hack and the whole thing is more like a proof of concept / test-tool. It is by no means “user friendly”.
