Sounds good! I haven't played the first one, so it'll all be new to me. :)

<Levels to test>

if anyone is interested in playtesting [backroute finding] some of my levels for MobiLems2, let me know and I'll give some to you. Let me know how many levels you'd be comfortable with.
Thank you

It seems I very suddenly lost interest in Lemmings again, plus busy with work and other things, I haven't worked on this in a few weeks. It may be a while until I start working on it again. But if anyone still wants to test level you may.

about 2 months went by and I think I'm going to try and finish this up. There are a few issues (some of which I already mentioned).

-quite a few levels have backroutes which I need to fix.
-some need a little more reqorking to get nice. Some I've forgotten and lost solutions to :(
-I had a goal of completing all the incomplete levels I made. [I have a LOT of partially made levels] I wasn't able to do that before; not sure if I can/want to now, I'd like to focus on getting the pack finished and released.

so if all goes well I will finally finish mobilems  2 sometime in the near future.

I cannot resist to comment and say my inner mantra when I read this (little Simonish rant incomming hehe ;))

When someone makes a level: It should ALWAYS be bundled with a functional replay!

I would have forgotten details of ~ 10% of my own solutions, too (and I also can't remember everything right now). But I have made replays and sometimes even a video. Projects like this need to be managed carefully with sorted folders and emergency backups and especially replays are a must. :8():


But I am also very exited for MobiLems 2 to end with some nice words :) (hm as I write this I thought: We need also a angel-lem simley with a halo and not just the devil one :laugh:)

I always make replays of every level I make. The problem is I accidentally wrote-over some of them while testing. You don't know how frustrated I was to discover that the replay I was supposed to freaking have for this one level in particular is not correct.

Sry for sounding a bit harsh there, but I already met people offereing help with backroute fixing and when I ask for the intended solution via replay....there were none avialable.
Hm... yes that problem of quickly overwriting replays in NL is a problem. Especially if the replay is kept in the standard output folder it can happen easily and sadly I know the feeling of that loss, but until now just level I still had the solution in mind were affected.
Maybe this tipp can help preventing this in the future: To counteract the overwriting by accident of replays I make extra folders outside of the standard output folder to have (at least) 2 copies of them.

Actually I usually do those things too yet somehow I still managed to screw this one up :XD:
I shouldn't have even bothered mentioning this in the first place actually; because the level whose replay I lost was busted anyway and I need to find a new/better solution for it.

In any case with this pack I will have a replay available for every single level :)

oh and one other thing: I can't remember if I asked you this already or not; do you mind if I include our collab level [from the earlier contest] "deserted cities of the heart" in my pack?

Im' getting ready to release my pack soon, but there are still a few levels which have not been thoroughly backroute tested.  please let me know if you're interested to test some levels. 

It will not be very many, I have only 2 right now that I know definitely need testing.

I've compiled a test version of my pack and I'm currently checking to see if it's going to work properly. I'm having an issue editing my MAIN.DAt [graphics] but I'm sure if I'm going to bother doing that anyway. I really want to get this pack released and in a condition that's at least working and free of game-stopping problems. I've lost all Lemmings-gaming creativity so I'm not in the mood to fiddle with this much anymore.

In any case; I should be uploading my finished pack very soon! :thumbsup:

Re: MobiLems II --- released!

The long awaited MobiLems 2 is here!

available by dropbox:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/72760678/MobiLemsII%20v2.zip

Note: I have not uploaded here due to the fileszie [mostly due to music files I think].

to be used with the newest NeoLemmix format.

This level pack begins easy [and gets hard] but there are no tutorials. I recommend playing the NeoLemmix introduction pack before my levelpack if you are unfamiliar with the new features of NeoLemmix.

Feedback is welcome. FYI: I will try to address issues if they come up, but I am not real active with level design now so I can't promise serious issues like backroute fixing etc, happening soon. e.i. I will probably only quickly fix something like "game crashes at this point".

Included with each level is a replay [in the solutions folder]

If you would like to ask me for help, please do so at Lemmingsforum.net; or my email at whatshuh@gmail.com

big thanks to all the people who helped and test and such.
In particular; recent testers (mostly for the newer levels) were Nepster, DynaLem and Akseli) GigaLem made the title icon and gave me the rank names.
