In Development / Re: [NeoLemmix] Lemmings Forum LDC Compilation Pack
« on: January 29, 2023, 04:09:35 PM »
Tested the solutions to my levels and they all are acceptable. :)

Going through all the contests and looking at all the levels was also a nice travel through time for me!

Contest 1 was roughly a bit after I joined the forum and you can see very good in this pack when certain people joined and left/became inactive there. :)

I attached some old sounds here.

For the new simply get the EXP-Player version:

I think in-game the difference is better heard.

Just posting to confirm that it's not a broken installation and hence it's not just Icho who has the problem, as my replay for Genocide 13 of United also broke in the exp build but is fine in the stable. This therefore makes me wonder why does it break there, while it's fine for Neutrality 38 and Tension 32. What's the difference with the blocker placements? ???

I think it is special for right facing lemmings.

Seems to be linked with:

Alright, then it is not a bug.

Although the "allow an assignment that shouldn't be" case is true for the fix after all then. At least in a small amount of cases. ;)

So everybody should stay alert for some needed replay fixes because of overlapping blocker-fields.

Was discussed on discord in November but after testing the EXP version and hearing those again I decided to make it a topic. :8():

I suddenly noticed that the "lets go" and hatch opening sounded quite off as it were mono or low quality. Noticed there was a sound folder change in the last update - got an older version of the sound folder to go back and it was normal again.

V12.12.5 seems to have introduced a default style change that includes those sounds.

namida's answer was:

There was an update to them as part of the default style, as they had weird frequencies which may have been causing an issue someone reported. If the quality has taken a hit as a result I'll take a look at that at some point

4KB was the sound file size before now it's 33KB. So there were some changes.

I am using the 12.12.3 sounds now. Compared the new 12.12.5 sounds sound extremely off.

I am strongly suggesting reverting back to the older files! The new ones sound much worse in my ears!

During a replay check for my levels that use teleporters I found no issues so far but another thing:

While testing the new teleporter behavior fix, I noticed 2 odd replay breaks while mass testing.

Levels affected:

5 13 and 2 11 of United. - The Issue is best seen in 5 13 "Decent Into Cerberon".

In my replays there are instances where blockers are placed in close proximity to each other. In fact as close as NL allows them.

In the stable version the replays solve without issue, but in the New Objects V5 version a blocker fails to assign as he seems to be to close to another blocker to allow assignment.

I don't know if there is an error in my EXP installation or this is indeed a silent physics change that happened by accident. It should be checked and compared with the stable version though.

Has anyone checked out this behavior in the new-objects experimentals? Thoughts?

Totally missed this. Still need to check. Will comment when I am done.

Don't forget to check out the Random level sharing topic as well!

The Levels by Turrican would be another level collection topic worth checking out.

Contests / Level of the Year: 2022!
« on: January 21, 2023, 08:40:32 PM »
For a list of nominated levels so far, please see the nominated levels topic.

And it's this time of the year again!

This is a bit different from the usual contests. You don't create a new level for this one; instead, levels released during 2022 get nominated and a winner picked from them. To be precise, the eligible dates are from 1st Janurary 2022 to 31th December 2022.

The following conditions must be met in order for a level to be eligible:
1. The level must have either been part of a large pack released during the eligible timeframe (1st Jan 2022 to 31th Dec 2022), or in some other way had its first public release during the timeframe. Private releases (such as sending to prerelease testers) do not affect eligibility either way. *
2. The level must be available for an engine that is usually eligible for the contests. Or in other words: NeoLemmix (new format version), or single-player Lix.
3. The level must be designed by a single author; collaboration levels are not eligible.
4. The creator of the level must not have specifically requested it be excluded.
5. The level must not have been nominated for LOTY2015/2016/2017/2018/2019/2020/2021.

* To clarify here: If it was released publicly prior to 1st Janurary 2022 as part of a demo or preview, but the full pack was released during the eligible period, the level is fine (as long as it wasn't nominated for LOTY2015/2016/2017/2018/2019/2020/2021).

Being a derivative of an ineligible level (as long as it's from the same author, the new author has a permission from the original one, or an official level) does not disqualify a level; as long as the level in question is clearly intended to stand as a seperate-but-related level rather than a newer version of the same level. Basically just don't send in carbon copies of ineligible levels.

To nominate a level, please PM me with your list of nominations. If you wish to modify your nominations at a later date, please resend the whole list of levels you wish to nominate, not just the changes.

Each user may nominate up to six levels from authors other than themself, up to a maximum of three levels per author. Anyone who nominates at least four levels by other authors may also nominate one of their own levels. (These self-nominations do not count towards the six nomination limit.)

So the maximum nomination value is: 6 levels from other users and 1 level of your own.

Note that levels that won a level design contest during the eligible timeframe get an automatic nomination, unless their author requests otherwise.

Nominations will be open until the end of March 31th 2023 (UTC). No additions / changes to nominations will be permitted after this date, with one exception: If a level someone has nominated is found to be ineligible for any reason and this is not discovered until after the deadline, they will be offered a chance to nominate a different level in its place.

Similar to last year, the voteoff will occur in three stages:

Stage 1
The levels will be put into random brackets, and the top ~50% from each bracket will qualify for Stage 2.

Stage 2
This will also be done in regular voteoff style. The aim here will be to get down to around a couple of remaining levels, so exact details will depend on how many levels are entered.

Stage 3
This will be done in an elimination format over multiple rounds; each round, one level gets knocked out, and the others continue onto the next round, until we have a winner.

The prize on offer will be US $10.00 for first place.

Also note that, in the interest of being reasonable, the "don't discuss levels involved in contests anywhere on the site during the voting period" rule does not fully apply to this contest; instead, it will be "do not discuss them at all within the LOTY2022 topics during voting, and don't discuss them in relation to the contest anywhere on the site".

So, that's about it! Any questions, ask here; and feel free to start nominating levels!

Well, I changed my password and i was able to go back to discord, so Yes.

Ok, lifted the ban. :)

V 1.9 is out!

Fixes are mostly based on feedback through darkshoxx's streams this time:

- 2 07 (adjusted text to include laserers)

- 3 12 (split up a pick-up skill into multiple ones as multiple pick-ups were not mentioned yet)
- 3 15 (flattened the terrain at the start)

- 4 29 (added steel)
- 4 31 (Made the level easier: The shimmiers are now pick-ups + some terrain changes)

- 5 06 (added terrain)
- 5 10 (added terrain)
- 5 11 (fixed the text)
- 5 16 (added a hint and made others more specific)
- 5 25 (added a hint)
- 5 27 (locked the RR, Made hints more specific, some terrain+steel changes)

Do you have control over your hacked Discord-Account again? (BigManBlazemigs)

If yes, tell us and someone can unban you.
