And do you have these for Oh no more Lemmings? It could be great to do the same thing for Oh no more Lemmings!

I dont have ONML. I lost it :-( Still got the box and everything.

I'm guessing the codes are different from the original lemmings but the 8th/9th digits in the code might be the same. I'm not saying they are, but they could be.

One of the files in lemgen.zip mentioned the codes

TDMGAHVFGL
TDIFAHTFGE

for PC ONML.  It didn't really say what would happen though, it might just crash the program without doing anything interesting, or they might not even work.

guest, those codes wind up having the same exact effect as the FAJHMFIJJS (for PC/DOS). The only difference is that you can get to a difficulty level/graphical garbage that it just gets stuck at, instead of letting you loop around to choose a legitimate difficulty level.

Those codes would be possible codes (based on the 8th/9th letter) for beating Havoc 20, if you could continue, so it makes sense. Not too interesting, but still cool.

And guest, I just like to try to crack codes is all, because it's fun :)

Ok, I tried these codes for Oh no more Lemmings on Atari ST and it gives the same thing: Rating Blue. But it's easier to directly get to the 2-Players levels: Just get up 3 times the Rating using the up arrow on the right panel on the main menu and let's go! B)

Now, do you have the code to play any single player levels in a battle for 2 players?

Yeah me too!

I have the following codes for the Amiga version:
Fun: levels 6, 17, 30 and 31
Tricky: levels 1-3, 7-31
Taxing: all but level 29
Mayhem: all but level 1

As Shvegait said, the 8th letter runs between B and Q before changing the 9th letter.

If we convert this to Hex:

B = 0
C = 1
D = 2
E = 3
F = 4
G = 5
H = 6
I = 7
J = 8
K = 9
L = A
M = B
N = C
O = D
P = E
Q = F

Note: you could probably use these codes for the 9th letter too

So the position of Level 19 Mayhem (Code: OLIGAKNNIV) is NI, translate to hex: C7

I figure the hex codes from 7 tricky:
TRICKY:
7=43
8=53
9=63
and so on until:
18=F3
19=04
Then the cycle starts again.
Because of the way the numbers are moving you probably need to switch them around so it goes 9th-8th.
This makes the sequence aggree with Hex so you end up with 34,35 and 36.

Anyone else want to see what the other 8 numbers mean?
