I'm sorry. I've been really busy and haven't had enough time to finish alpha 8. But we haven't stopped working on it. Alpha 8 is almost done. Once we have finished the save system (we've changed how AI works, and that means that we've to re-do AI saving) we'll publish Alpha 8. But I'm sorry I can't tell you a date. As soon as Alpha 8 is done, it will be released.
Thank you for your interest!
The clone-room system needs a lot of polish. We'll be improving it for the next updates.
About this post, this question was done for the old room objects assigments, which used a different system (there weren't room areas).
The clone room function is a bit limited (will be upgraded in future
updates). For now, it only copies room objects, and it won't let you
paste it above other objects if those objects interfere with the copied
The cleaning room system is a bit buggy for now (sorry! :S). Try deleting the sheet shelfs and placing new ones, or firing/hiring cleaners. If it still doesn't work, please send us your save file to email@example.com and we'll try to fix it.

Have you checked that every room has a cleaned bed? If guests aren't getting rooms is possibly because there are no clean beds (clean beds have a light-blue sheet, while dirty beds don't have sheets).
There's an in-game tutorial (press T).
About the bug, that's an annoying pathfinding bug related to the engine that we've been trying to avoid (we hope that in the future we'll find the way to fix it). For now, I recommend you to make easy paths for the workers and guests (by avoiding a maze-hotel: this bug is caused mostly by walls).
Hotel Tycoon is on Alpha, that means that you should expect bugs.
You can do 2 things:
1. Make that 50 minutes wasted time
2. Help us improve the game by letting us know how did you get that bug
Consider doing the second one and we'll gladly try to fix it so you can enjoy playing Hotel Tycoon =)
Well, cheat codes is a good idea, but we prefer to focus on other things for now. Maybe in the future.
If you really want to use cheats, you can go to the save folder (C:\Users\%USERNAME\AppData\LocalLow\Avr Games\Hotel Tycoon for Windows), open the saved file with notepad and edit the number between saveMoney (<saveMoney>this number</saveMoney>).
But, thank you for the idea!
When saving, it should appear a "Game saved" text in the middle of the screen. Are you using Windows? If you can't find a way to make it save, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to help you.
Could you please send us your save file (located at C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\LocalLow\Avr Games\Hotel Tycoon)?
If you can't send it though here, you can email us at email@example.com and we'll try to fix it.
How many sheets baskets do you have?
When the cleaners stop cleaning the beds, do they have a sheets rack with sheets?
The new cleaning system needs some fixes, we'll check it for the next version.
Thank you for your idea, we'll add it to our to-do list. If we have enough time, it will be implemented for Alpha 7 (won't promise anything)!

This game isn't optimized yet (in fact, for Alpha 6 we're working on it), so in some computers won't launch. If your computer is good enough to run the game, check the last update (alpha 5) and if it doesn't start send us an emai to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll try to help you.
