General Discussion / grams88 Blog

Hi everyone

I thought I would do a blog as I notice others are doing a similar thing.

Going back to when I done a bungee jump I remember thinking to myself what are you crazy. I remember around christmas time my brother got us a Guinness world records book which I found quite magical in a way. It was interesting all the different world records people had, I was thinking to myself that it would be cool having a record myself but anyway that's probably around the time that I started to think about doing a bungee jump.

It was a great day out, I remember looking forward to giving it a go. I prepared myself by looking at youtube videos of others doing a bungee jump and I was trying imagine in that same scenario. When you are about to jump they tell you that you should not look down and you should try not to think about it too much as that is when the worry starts to set in.

It was an achievement I'm quite proud of and the amount of confidence you get when you have achieved it. :thumbsup:

Funny thing that happened the months coming up to the bungee jump was a story came up in the news about a lady who done a bungee jump at the Victoria falls ended up getting injured when her cord snapped, she ended up in the water fighting for her life. This is certainly one thing you have to keep in mind is that there are risks associated with the extreme sport. Before I booked myself up for the bungee jump I sent the team an e-mail asking what there safety record was as I was worried if something was to go wrong. They sent an e-mail back to myself saying that they had an 100% safety record. Maybe when you think about it there are more chances that you could get killed driving to the bungee site rather than the bungee itself but anyway I have not looked too much into that aspect of it.

Non-Lemmings Gaming / LMarbles
« on: April 01, 2019, 11:02:47 pm »
Anyone want to give this game a try, it's a very hard puzzle game. I have almost completed this game, getting close. Here's a website that allows you to download this old game.

http://lgames.sourceforge.net/LMarbles/

It's based on a game called atomix, I think I got the name right hopefully. You have to copy the pattern that you see by moving the marbles around. It's a hard puzzle as I noticed a lot people struggle with this one. :devil::devil:

NeoLemmix Levels / Ski Sloping Lemmings (80 Levels)
« on: March 30, 2019, 11:52:17 pm »
Hi everyone

Your tutorials have been very helpful Flopsy. :thumbsup:

(Ski Sloping lemmings) which probably has not much to do with skiing. This is a pack that uses the original skills and the original and Oh no tilesets, the nine tilesets. :thumbsup: I think I made some decent puzzle type levels. The first eight or nine levels are tutorials but not like your normal tutorial levels, these ones are a bit harder than your standard tutorial levels. The first level is just to do with using the release rate tool, I think it is set to 50 but I could be wrong.

I'm hoping to maybe do some backroute changes but I might do that at a later date, see how it goes as it is at the moment. The first rank which is the (Blue slope) that's your hard tutorial levels and few more straight forward type of levels. The next rank up is the (Red slope)which are slightly harder still these levels might have multiple solutions. The rank after this one the the (Black Slope) these levels get harder as I've hopefully implemented some puzzles within some of the levels. The last rank is the hardest (Orange Slope) where you can't make many mistakes at all as you can lose the level.

I'm hoping that the 80 levels are okay and hopefully some levels might trip up even the masters of the lemmings. There are a few levels that might not go down well but lets hope that there aren't too many of those type of levels. 

I hope I have added the right file.

I'm hoping this also encourages others to make a big level pack. It was actually quite fun making the levels but sometimes you do run dry for ideas and sometimes it can be a bit more difficult to come up with a level.

Thanks Namida and IchoTolot, :) Thanks for helping me out with the last post. hopefully I've added the right one this time.


Should work now the download. :)

In Development / Ski Sloping Lemmings
« on: January 22, 2019, 11:39:40 pm »
Hope everyone is doing well. I thought I would post this topic which will be about the (Ski Sloping lemmings) a level pack with about 80 levels I've made split into four ranks so 20 levels each rank. I'm still to finish off the level pack but I'm very near to completing it. The name ski sloping lemmings might be a bit misleading as it has nothing to do with skiing levels but more to do with the rank names. The easiest rank is the Blue Slope and the hardest rank is the orange slope. Most people might know that the black slope is usually the hardest slope in skiing but I think it is the orange slope that is the hardest but the orange slope is very rare me thinks.

The ranks are as follow.

Blue Slope
Red Slope
Black Slope
Orange Slope

All of the levels I will make only have the eight classic skills as I feel you can still think of many puzzle ideas hopefully. I think I might be a few Neo lemmix versions behind but hoping someone can help us with that one, I wonder if the instant bomber is still the same and if the fall distance is still the same from the version I have.

Some of the levels might be lacking in the design department.

Sorry I won't post the level pack yet but I might ask a question, is there a tool for making level packs, I think Flopsy had a video about it somewhere.

Non-Lemmings Gaming / Video game genre
« on: February 23, 2018, 12:53:29 am »
I thought to ask the question

I thought I ask what is your favorite genre of video game and what is your least favorite?
I'll go first

My favorite genres would probably be the ones such as racing games, sport games like golf or pool. Classic games, I'm not too sure if classic games would itself be a genre but I will throw that out there to see what everyone else thinks. Board and card games could be a genre as well. A lot of my video game collection contains a lot of racing and puzzle games mainly.

Genres that I'm probably not too keen on might be (real time strategies) or maybe (role playing games) My brother has tried to get me into real time strategies but it's probably something I've not been too excited about.

You might remember this game.

https://classicreload.com/mice-moves.html

The object of the game is to get the highest score by getting your mice over to the other side or as far as you can get.

Lemmings Main / Lemmings two player
« on: October 20, 2017, 08:36:21 pm »
I thought I would create this thread as I was thinking that it might be a good idea to record my dad and I playing the lemmings two player on the atari st emulator some time. Sorry I don't have any videos at the moment but I might as well create this thread to get this started. :)

The two player lemmings can be mighty fun as there are many different tactics you could try.

Non-Lemmings Gaming / Hardest video games
« on: August 27, 2017, 12:11:34 am »
Hi everyone

I thought I would start a topic asking about our hardest games we have complete. I was going to ask what has been your most hardest game you have completed without cheating, glitches are allowed I would say because some glitches requite skill.

What have been your hardest video games you have completed.

Lemmings Main / We all fall down
« on: July 13, 2017, 10:01:01 pm »
I'm thinking maybe someone else has mentioned this in the past. I managed to complete the we all fall down Mayhem one with just three or two digs. Has anyone else mentioned this before?

Non-Lemmings Gaming / Games I'm maybe thinking of completing one day.
« on: March 17, 2017, 01:30:21 am »
Hi guys

Hope you are doing okay. I might maybe list some games that I'm determined to finish, lately I've just completed the car vup game the one for the Atari st. I managed to complete that one without cheating or saving the game as you couldn't save it on the Atari st back in the day. You could probably save it when playing it on the Atari st emulator using the save game state features but that would make those type of games far to easy. A lot of the Atari games were like that except for games like lemmings, pushover, colour clash, chips challenge where you have a password system.

Feel free to to post your list of games you are determined to complete one day. It does not have to be games you are thinking of completing this year, it could be years away, decades away (etc) if time allows god willing.
Here's my list of games I'm thinking of completing in the future, probably way in the future. These games I feel are very fun to play.

Lemmings Chronicles
Lemmings 3d (maybe)
Lemmings revolution (maybe)
ODT
Worms forts
Pushover
One Step Beyond (maybe a favourite of simon's, never played it myself as of yet)
Chips challenge
Shadow Warrior
Rick dangerous 2
No buddies land
Tomb raider Underworld
Tomb raider Anniversary
James pond
Bug
Wolfchild
Pablo and the Gold of Montezuma
Jack Orlando
Grim fandango
Fire and Ice
Enchanted land
Punt 2
Operation starfish
Popcorn (Breakout style game)
Starquake
Bart vs the space mutants
Worms (weapons of mass destruction)
Shufflepuck cafe
The Simpsons Bart vs the world
Slug (Sokoban type game for the atari st)
Supaplex
Bubble Bobble (Not allowed to use continues)
Captain Dynamo
Magic pockets
Heartlight (dos game)
The lost Vikings
Hook (Atari st)
Chuck's Challenge
Sonic CD
I-Fluid
Kevs World (atari st)
Polyball
One More Roll
Steg (atari st)
Rise of the Tomb raider

I might change the list from time to time but the games that have the line through it are the ones that I have completed from the list

General Discussion / Martyn Brown, Worms: article on retrogamer.net
« on: December 11, 2016, 06:50:20 pm »
Martyn Brown is the man I think the MB bomb from the worms games was named after. The article talks about a lot of people involved in making the games and music.

Non-Lemmings Gaming / Lets play unfortunately not lemmings
« on: November 23, 2016, 11:47:12 pm »
Hi guys

I thought I would post some lets plays I've been doing about atari st games. I hear some of you are fans of the atari st. :thumbsup: I might maybe do a lemmings game in the future but I can't promise anything at the moment.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGIuwdB5b6Fk_HUmhjGLJZg

This is a different youtube account from the one I usually use, I wanted to have this just for atari st games or old classic video games so to say.

Hope you enjoy watching some of the videos.

Hi guys

I've been making some puzzles out of the old lemmings levels. I like the whole idea of making a harder puzzle out of old levels well some of them might be a bit easier than the previous puzzle or level.

I've got a 13 level pack for the Lemmini which I'll attach to this post. I bet you guys will have those finished very quick. :lem-mindblown: I thought I would post this level pack as it is coming up for lemmings 25th Birthday as this pack contains a lot of the old levels from the game..

Wow it goes to show how time is going by quick. :lem-mindblown:

Non-Lemmings Gaming / PC Dos game called (Clone)
« on: April 04, 2015, 12:06:52 am »
Hi everyone

I thought I would share a game I was playing which has a big puzzle element attached to it. The game is called Clone, a little interesting game I would say. I've been playing this in the evenings getting past more levels but there has been a few that have stumped myself.

Here's a picture of the game

http://www.dosgames.com/ss.php?filename=clone.gif

Has anyone else tried this game before? I think this game is well thought out as you have to get the blue guys to the exit, just as simple as that but some levels you have to think before you make any moves.

A cool game. :thumbsup:

Non-Lemmings Gaming / Atari st magazine
« on: December 16, 2014, 09:39:55 am »
This might be one of those long shot type questions, but back in the day my mum and dad used to advertise their business which was sellling atari st games, this was a long time ago but I was wondering if anyone else can find the Ads my mum and dad placed. The business was called KPD and they were mainly selling games.

I've had a little look myself through one or two of the atari st format magazines but I'm not even too sure if this is the right section, so many magazines to look through (lol)

By the way for any atari st fan here's a website to some of the magazines, you can actually have a look through each magazine, thanks to the contributors who have saved most of the magazines. It takes you back down memory lane.  :thumbsup:

http://www.atarimania.com/atari-magazine-st-format_14.html

Many thanks guys.  :thumbsup:
