Lemmings Help / Re: GuyPerfect's lgl2
« on: March 06, 2016, 09:48:45 pm »
Given that GuyPerfect seems to have abandoned this editor, I don't think he will care if it's posted publicly since nobody can bother him about it being incomplete.


Lix / Re: Steel decoration: steel or earth?

Here's a violent scene from Steel Works.

The implosion clears out the destructible moss.

I would have expected that either (a) the moss goes away and reveals the steel behind it or (b) the moss survives destruction, like it would in Lemmings.  The way it appears in that screenshot, somehow the moss was covering an exactly moss-shaped missing portion of the steel block...

If you don't mind keeping two bitmaps, one for destructible and one for non-destructible terrain (a) could be implemented.  Rendering the level to the bitmaps is a little trickier since you need a special case for destructible terrain behind non-destructible.  But as long as steel cannot be destroyed, terrain behind it can't be revealed.

If you do a good quality scan, be sure to upload a copy to the Internet Archive Manual Library.

The more changes you make to the forum software, the more painful it'll be to upgrade it. :lix-ashamed:

How has this one not been proposed yet:
This is hilarious, but there's no way.

Anyhow, I think I do prefer over , although I'm actually fine even sticking with what we currently have.

NaOH has created an additional lix emoticon -- -- of which I wholeheartedly approve.

I don't think  :o and huge eyes are quite the same emotion -- huge eyes is closer to  :scared: which I like the way it is.

Clam, on the other hand, should certainly be added.  I don't know what emotion it represents, but it is relevant.

If you want it, you gotta make it.  That's the open-source way.  :lix:

Actually, there's Tundra, but the links are broken, and I think it wasn't working with recent versions of Python or Pygame last time I tried it.  I can probably dig up the files if you want to try to make it work.

Mindless: Yep, these can be added. When we have a full set, let me know and I'll pop them in. :)

Here's the set (attached).  I didn't put the lix in though.

Can we fix a few of the emoticons?  (There are some others that would need tweaking to match the ^_^ one.)

I meant the amiga MOD versions, by that, but sorry for not clarifying. Does anyone have those?

The Amiga Lemmings MODs are here.

Most likely the "lemmings" file is just a launcher, and the actual files are stored on the floppy outside the filesystem.  Usually you can get the files from Amiga Lemmings disks using the "rippsyfiles" tool that comes with JST, but it doesn't work on this disk.

EDIT: Wow, turns out the standalone demo has slightly different levels, as well. You guys might want to have a look at the Amiga Format one, then!

Unfortunately, I don't know how to get the files off of the cover disk.  I would suspect they cut anything extra though, since there had to be multiple demos on one floppy.

I can't say there's anything terribly interesting in the Amiga Lemmings demo level files, unfortunately.

As for what the demo was used for, I don't know any more than you do. :P

I just realized that there are some songs in the Amiga Lemmings demo that aren't used in the demo.  So here is a rip of the Amiga Lemmings demo music.  The unused songs aren't terribly useful, but they're kinda fun.

I based the rips on the "Wanted Team" SJS/SMP files because, as far as I can tell, the information for the unused music that maps instrument numbers to samples isn't included on the disk.  It's definitely not where the information for the music that actually was used is stored.  (I guess maybe the "Wanted Team" just picked samples that they thought fit?)

I think we're probably just lucky somebody keeps paying the server bill.
