Help & Guides / Can you run Lemmings Paintball on Windows 10?
« on: July 19, 2022, 03:57:16 AM »
When I click `Install' in the CD's autorun menu nothing happens. Alternatively, changing the compatibility/administrator settings causes the installer to freeze.

I have installed Lemmings Paintball on a Windows XP virtual machine and copied over everything I could find to the same locations on the Windows 10 host (details below) but I get the message `To play Lemmings Paintball, you must first install it. Run the SETUP.EXE program on the CD'. Evidently I have missed something that tells Lemmings Paintball that is installed.

In particular, the program files (C:\Games\LemBall) to the same location with the following MD5 hash sums:

3892e4fd15af86d4651ee49cb10bd247 ./LemBall/DeIsLog.1
ec20be02a32dd817f6b367346c514dff ./LemBall/DSPDIB16.DLL
f6bf31b3b38d4444c827a1dcaff9a8dd ./LemBall/DSPDIB32.DLL
9ac9f9502f82839d36b7916448469f38 ./LemBall/LEMBALL.EXE
29f883e09412f79787e624de61bd431b ./LemBall/PBAIMOG.VSR

I found only two sets of entries in the registry:
# Set 1 of 2:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Visual Sciences\Lemmings Paintball]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Visual Sciences\Lemmings Paintball\Beta]

# Set 2 of 2:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\UnInstall Lemmings Paintball]
"UninstallString"="C:\\WINDOWS\\uninst.exe -fC:\\Games\\LemBall\\DeIsLog.1"
"DisplayName"="Lemmings Paintball"

I also copied across ./All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Visual Sciences/Lemmings Paintball.lnk. Although I'm not sure what the equivalent Start Menu folder for All Users is for Windows 10, perhaps C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs?

I didn't find any new files in the Windows folder.

I read through the .hlp file but it only confirmed that once installed the buttons in autorun menu should change.

Overall Lemmings 95 works well on Windows 10 but the scrolling messages on the main menu and the fast-forward feature in-game run too quickly. Perhaps they are tied to the frame rate.

Also, are there any additional level packs for Lemmings 95?
