The download is successful, but when I go to do the source extraction it's like my computer suddenly forgets that my 'downloads' folder has any contents! The browse function shows a completely empty folder, and if I try to type it all out by hand it tells me the source path does not exist. Has anyone encountered this problem before? Is there a fix to this? (This is a Dell laptop on the most recent Windows.)

Lemmings Main / LEM-off! An idea, of sorts
« on: November 28, 2017, 08:05:22 am »
First off, forgive me if this has been done before. I know full-game playthroughs aren't new per se, (RTW stream is coming to mind) but I just got this thought the other day of a 2-person (or more, I suppose) Lem-off. Basically, both players get on a skype call and begin playing at the same time on the same port, and whoever completes the game first wins. (I'd suggest just using the Lemmini version, but I suppose any could work.)

I understand this might be logistically difficult to stream on Twitch or similar, due to the multiple-screens thing, but I'm betting that could somehow be worked out. Another possibility that occurred to me is just opening it up to an en masse Skype call, thus allowing for as many participants as possible.

The other potential issue coming to mind is timing, as the world is rather large and contains many time zones, :) but again, I suspect this could be worked out.

Just thought I'd float this idea and see if anyone found it interesting. Open to any and all questions, concerns, criticisms, or propositions.

Take good care of my Lemmings!

Lemmings Main / Original Lemmings: 100%ing
« on: April 03, 2017, 02:54:28 am »
So last night as my insomnia prevented me from shutting my eyes I got an idea (and of course put it into action immediately). I decided to try to 100% as much of the original Lemmings as was possible (note: in Lemmini). Obviously some levels can't be aced (tailor made for blockers, for example). I am currently continuing to pursue this insanity, and I just saved 100% on upside-down world (hardest doable one yet in my opinion). I thought I'd go ahead and list off some of my favorites (highlights) that I've tackled thus far.

Not as Complicated as it Looks
Worra Lorra Lemmings

Lemming Drops
One Way Digging to Freedom
Tightrope City (I still can't believe this worked)
Island of the Wicker People

If at First...
Watch out...Traps
Lend a Helping Hand
The Prison
Livin on the Edge
Upside Down World (!!!)
(That's where I am now, I'll keep this list updated, but thus far those are the ones I'm most proud of)

Notable non-100%s:
Ozone friendly Lemmings (cleared with 3 bombers, pretty sure that's well known though)
Luvly Jubly (cleared with 5 bombers, I had previously always used 6+)
From the boundary line (I can't remember and didn't save this replay but it was at least 90%)

Levels I couldn't 100% but bet someone has:
Compression Method 1 (with the Lemmini version - no steel punching glitch)
Every Lemming for Himself (ok this I really doubt but maybe)

Anyways, I will now continue this fun adventure. (And yes I do have my few favorite replays saved, if anyone was curious.) Just thought this would be a fun bit to share with the Lemmings world.

Lemmings Main / Came across something INSANE
« on: November 26, 2016, 05:54:10 am »
I've been a Lemmings fan for just about as long as I can remember. As a result, I am constantly looking at things and listening to things and thinking that they remind me of Lemmings. But today I found something extremely interesting. In my adventures across the internet, I found myself playing a game called Desktop Tower Defense (the very first one, not any of the sequels). I had my volume cranked way down, but then I noticed there were some interesting game sounds. I turned it up a bit, and noticed that at the start of each round, there was a "Let's go" sound...and it was an exact copy of the one in Lemmings (I forget which port). Then, as the "creeps" we're each killed, I noticed that the sound effect for this was the lemming "splat-noise" EXACTLY! Furthermore, when a creep made it to the "finish line," the sound effect played was the "Yippee" noise (again I forget which port). As someone who is not very well-versed in game design, I don't know if those are like the game-sound-effect equivalent of stock photos, but I have a hunch they were just stolen directly from Lemmings. (Feel free to check it out yourself, just google "Desktop Tower Defense.") Small world, isn't it?

Recently my computer has been refusing to run Lemmini and SuperLemmini, it gives me the following error message:

CRC error for file C:\Users\PC\Downloads\lemmingswin\SOUND\BANG.WAV. (CRC is 0x550565b2, expected 0x54056532.)

I'm guessing that means there is something going on with the sound file, but I don't know what to do about it. (The sound file plays just fine by itself if I run it in media player.) Should I redownload Win95 lemmings?

Fan Corner / Special Levels Music for String Quartet!
« on: February 29, 2016, 12:58:33 am »
I am currently working on arranging music from the original Lemmings "special" levels (Beast, Menacing, Awesome, Beast II) for string quartet. Beast I is about wrapped up, and Menacing is currently in progress. There are, of course, multiple versions of these songs out there, and I am arranging by ear. So I was wondering what the consensus is on the most full-sounding, most interesting, coolest version of the Awesome and Beast II soundtracks. I am mainly using the Amiga track for Beast I, and I am using the Amiga track for Menacing now (although I will include a bit from the -I believe- SNES track, whichever one is in A-flat major, just to spice it up a bit). Open to opinions!

Help & Guides / Holiday Lemmmings?

Just in the business of getting myself in the spirit of the season, I was wondering if there is a Lemmini-friendly version of the old Holiday Lemmings packs.


Help & Guides / Dovelems..?
« on: November 27, 2015, 06:27:46 am »
Where can I download DoveLems? (for good ol' Lemmini) I have read people saying on DC's youtube channel, but I can't find it anywhere on there? Anyone able to give me a link?



Help & Guides / What needed to play (Neo)Lemmix, (Super)Lemmini?
« on: October 27, 2015, 04:22:57 am »
I have read that Lemmini requires the Windows 95 edition of the original Lemmings to operate. Is this true? I have an HP windows 8 computer and own DOSBOX versions of both the original Lemmings and ONML. I have been interested for awhile in not only playing some of the fantastic level packs that the custom scene has to offer but perhaps even getting to work on creating a pack of my own. So here is my question: what is needed to download and operate Lemmini/Superlemmini and Lemmix/NeoLemmix? Can it even be done on my computer, or is it a compatibility issue?

Appreciate all of your help,
