I was thinking the same as yourself Willem as you could probably do a thing maybe with lemmings levels or other things. We use to play it on this forum as well in the past. I was still probably trying to get used to the rules and still learning the game. It's a great game as I love my board games, my brother got me some board games for Christmas. I like to think everyone has their board that they are good at, I know some board games require luck such as your backgammon but I challenge that aspect. There were skilled backgammon players playing against hard computers and most times the players won the game. Don't get me wrong luck plays a Hugh part in games but there's the skill aspect as well.

I noticed you gave up the caffeine Simon, is that very hard to do. I like the pepsi max, I think they have the non caffeine version of diet pepsi. Does caffeine do more damage than good, it probably does when we thing about it. Good on you Simon for giving that up for July time.

Are you still going cold turkey with it at the moment Simon?

It's a really good game tomb raider 3, I really liked the graphics. It's a right hard one as I remember.

How far into tomb raider 3 are you Willem? When it gets to the choice where you have to pick between three places I'm sure that's when it starts to get very tough. (Roof tops of london) (Nevada) (South pacific) If I remember correctly.

The new tomb raider games such as the rise of tomb raider look and feel so different to the older ones, (I've not played the newer ones yet, I'm currantly playing tomb raider underworld) I think the makers of the game were mentioning that it's more about the action and storyline rather than solving the puzzles which was something I really liked about the old tomb raider games the puzzles were really good.

The Fallguy game is very fun to play, I got the award that only 22.6% of people who play the game get and won a full episode episode. It is very hard to at least win one full episode. Anyone else tried this game, it's quite fun and competitive if that is the right word to use.

That is completely unacceptable 607 you posted three times in a row, Namida will not be happy, :devil: only kidding I've put my second and third round ones in here, hope that's okay. Everyone has picked some good music. Now we know what games we like and what games we hate. Good questions there Nessy. :thumbsup:

I loved the atari st version of the Titus the fox music, it felt very atmospheric and made the game more magical and interesting.  Cool I noticed Jazz Jack rabbit as well getting featured, the music is actually quite good in that one, it reminded of the days my brother and I were doing a competition against each other to see who would get the furthest.

Sorry I haven't gotten to everyone.

Definitely the ultimate man cave. A place for men to escape. :thumbsup:

Crazy year this one.  I think they reckon it might of been murder in the case of my friend's sister who was found dead in the flat. Our local newspaper was mentioning about it and encouraging us to leave the light on during the night a while back. I knew my friend quite well from school and college, we used to get laughs. She's in a wheelchair and from what I  reading from the article was very close to her sister, her sister helped her with her disability. She's going to be very upset losing her sister in that way.

I wonder if I could get in contact with one of the big football teams in Scotland as I think they might of been big supporters, I can't be sure but I I'm thinking maybe her sister is a supporter of the team as well.

My dog is getting older, she is getting more deaf and can't really hear you when you mention her name unless you say it very loudly. She used to go nuts when someone came to the door but not now as she does not hear as well. Animals are very cute in their ways, I cut myself during the middle of the night, I still have no idea what happened as I was in a sleepy state. I cut my knee and it was bleeding so I put a plaster on it and my dog was licking the plaster. My mum was thinking it might be poisoned. I hope not but do dogs not notice things like that.  I had cuts all over my hand as well, on the knuckles part. I'm scared just in case it happens again as I don't know what happened. My mum was saying it was a loud bang during the middle of night.

In relation to criticism, I think constructive criticism is good as long as it has a few positive things. Otherwise it might lead to the person who put the work in deleting their content, there was a show we used to watch called (one foot in the grave) and the main character was writing up a screenplay and he showed his wife his screenplay. His wife was quite critical of it and it led to the main character throwing his work in the bin. He spent a while writing it up.

My grammar tends not to be the best, I've been criticised in a few of the reviews for my e-book I self published. Some of the reviews seem very harsh but that's that I suppose. My mental health e-book I got published might actually be doing okay. I think the money raised from it goes towards a charity or good causes. As a sufferer of ocd harm thoughts I thought I'd write about that and it got accepted for publication as the topic of it was probably quite an interesting.

You will probably be surprised with how popular your pack might be. Sometimes words can be very hurtful, I like the way WillLem worded it by anything negative that gets said it is balanced out with some positive words.  I always believe that to be a good approach as there will be lots of people with different skills when it comes to the making of the level packs, the newcomers to the forum getting negative feedback can put us off and discourage us from the task itself. Thanks for your kind words in relation to Skii Sloping Lemmings, yeah it is quite a hard pack to do. It can be difficult when it comes to thinking up an idea for a level and you feel that idea is great but others might not like the idea and maybe tend to criticise it.

Hoping you are not going to delete the pack or anything like that. There will be lots of people who will play your pack and really enjoy it. I almost guarantee that. There's lots of people who are not got an account here.

Hope things are okay.

You haven't deleted your pack mantha, I'm hoping not as you put the hard work in for it. (Makes me sad)

Hope everyone is doing okay.

To be honest I've not found one bad pack here and the amount of work that goes into making a level pack can be a lot of work, it might feel more work for others, a lot of people work at different speeds. I don't like to criticise peoples work especially as we are all unique and like different things. I was in the duke3d community and I felt like they were being very harsh about the earlier duke maps, I love those earlier duke maps, it's just who I am. I don't like to criticise others after all we all put in hard work. I would say try not to criticise in a sense but do try to inspire others, maybe use terms like I love that you did that with your level but.

I'm hoping no one takes things too personally as that creates a hostile environment. Sometimes people can take things personally and maybe it can lead to people just giving up on it altogether and not coming back to the forum. I feel that would be a sad state of affairs just because they felt like they were being overly criticised. IT probably happens on a lot of video game forums where someone feels like everyone is ganging up on them. This can feel very real to people. I don't like seeing others upset over things like that especially as things could of been worded a bit different. Funny thing was I talking to my brother about this very thing and he was thinking the same as myself, if we were to be critical try not to overwhelmed the person who created it. We can't find someone guilty just based on opinions we need the facts to the case.

If I was to criticise I feel like I would say something like this, I stink at timed bombers, I see a lot of these levels have timed bombers which might be my devil.

I've had my fair share of criticism for my level packs, I'm hoping the nuked lems does 100 times better than the skii sloping lemmings. So far people have been liking the pack. Makes me feel good about myself. :)
