« on: March 29, 2015, 07:51:38 pm »
At last it is done with the things i need inserted
i present to you
GigaLems
5 Ratings
Warm, Hot, Boiling, Scalding, & Scorching
150 levels in total
A big thanks to Namida for guiding me on certain points of development
and providing the the Genesis .oggs
To Save on space the exe does include a Music pack.dat file i recommend using that because there is special levels the comes with there own themes
it also includes the Genesis and Dos(ohno) sound tracks
So heres the pack

Cool!

I've just tried your .exe, and I encountered an error.

I just tried both with and without the music pack, from the download link (not an already-local copy) and it works fine.

Just to check your download wasn't corrupted, is the file size of the EXE 3,596,800 bytes, and the music pack (if you're using it) 59,542,378 bytes?

Don't worry about his post, it's pretty technical stuff.

Anyway, just in case the DropBox upload went bad (I should've thought of this before), I tried downloading from the link instead of just copying from my DropBox folder, but it still seems to work fine even actually re-downloading it from there. Perhaps retry the download? (although as mentioned, the DAT file is optional but just gives you better quality musics, as well as special musics on some levels)

It doesn't seem there's any problems with the pack, as far as I can tell, though if anyone else gets this problem, let me know and I'll look into it - it's more likely to be something with the Flexi player itself than anything Giga's done wrong. This is the first time a pack's been released based on the NeoLemmix flexi player, after all (and only the second to use any Flexi player full stop, with exit's cLemmings Ultimate Edition being the first).

how do you install the music?

I put the dat file in the same folder as the exe but when I begin playing the old music comes on.

It should work automatically, as long as the filenames are unchanged. Basically, if an exe is named XXX.exe, the music pack should be XXX_Music.dat. This is not case sensitive (at least under Windows; I'm not sure if this still holds true when playing under Linux via WINE).

If your antivirus (or anything else) "sandboxes" the app, this could possibly cause it to be unable to see the music pack file. However, this would only happen if it completely prevents it from even reading any files at all - if it only protects it from writing them (since it only needs to read the music pack file, not write to it) and/or only protects system files, that shouldn't be an issue. Just out of interest, do you also have issues with music packs for official games or the Lemmings Plus games, or do those ones work fine?

I've started doing recordings of my playthrough of this pack. :)

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVWvcY0oGEFzQbdLUdoJ42Kc_8bqMjTYJ

First two videos (covering, between them, the entire Warm rank) are uploading now, and I'll probably do the first 10 to 15 (depending on how long they take) levels of Hot later tonight.

Oooh, should be good! :) Really enjoying this pack so far. Considering your method of "make every level in order", I'm actually pretty impressed with how the difficulty curve is turning out, too. :)

If you keep a backup, the worst thing that can happen is you have to revert to the backup.
