[NeoLemmix] PimoLems
« on: December 20, 2015, 03:07:29 pm »
1.) Download Link:

NeoLemmix player: https://www.neolemmix.com/

PimoLems NeoLemmix (V 2.7  ~ 239 KB): PimoLems V 2.7
Contains the game itself.

PimoLems Music (~ 5.1 MB) : PimoLems Music
Contains the music tracks! Extract all the tracks into the "music" folder of your NeoLemmix player. If the player does not have a "music" folder yet, create one in the same folder where the player is located.

Outdated Old formats version (before NeoLemmix 12.0.1):
PimoLems NeoLemmix (V 2.3  ~ 5.3 MB): PimoLems V 2.3
Contains the game itself.

2.) Installation:

1. Get a NeoLemmix player from: https://www.lemmingsforums.net/index.php?topic=3686.0  and extract it into a folder of your choice (if you already have an up-to-date player you can skip this step)
    Also make sure you got all the styles as well and extracted them into your player's "styles" folder.
2. Unzip "PimoLems.zip" into the "levels" folder of your Neolemmix player.  ../levels/PimoLems should exist now. If the "levels" folder does not exist create it.
3. Extract all the music files from "PimoLems_music.zip" into the "music" folder of your NeoLemmix player. If the player does not have a "music" folder yet, create one in the same folder where the player is located.
4. Run "NeoLemmix.exe" and press F2 in the main menu so you can access the pack through the level browser.
5. Inform yourself about the basics, new NeoLemmix features and hotkeys with the manual: http://www.lemmingsforums.net/index.php?topic=2414.0 (currently a bit outdated)
6. Enjoy!


3.) Ratings:

Well as Pieuw described them point on the Lemmini version I will just repeat his words here ;)

1 – Calm

Beginning with the calm rating, you'll find kind levels in terms of difficulty, time and % of Lemmings to save. Don't get used to it though.
Difficulty ~ Fun / Tricky.


Calm 07 - Lemstones
Even if these levels are easy, you won't have to ''Just Dig!''

2 – Windy

The wind is rising, making your hair raising. A sign that puzzling levels are coming ! They are very gentle ones, though you may lose some hair if you don't apprehend them correctly.
Difficulty ~ Tricky to Taxing.



Windy 06 – Diggers Mania
Be warned that strange architectures may occur. Do not let them distress you.

3 - Stormy

There's a storm coming, and it's a serious one. Puzzles are getting tougher, bombers suddenly like to walk and even a few glitches slipped into some levels (see below for more information about glitches).
Difficulty ~ Taxing to Mayhem.



Stormy 15 – So Logical
Some of the Stormy levels may try to make you believe they are piece of cake. Don't trust them.


4 - Hurricane

Abandon all hope ye who enter here. And grab something solid if you don't want to fly away in the wind. We're dealing with harsh levels demanding serious thinking, precision, and they're quite tight on time (Icho edit: Well at least where the timer is nessecary ;)).
Difficulty ~ Mayhem and beyond.



Hurricane 10 – How To Prevent a Mass Suicide
Well, I'm sure you'll find a way to show them the way. Anyway.

5 - Pickaxe

We're not in the standard ratings anymore. This one is all about miners, miners, miners. Because yes, I love miners. This skill offers so many possibilities and craziness ! So, here are levels where you'll have to execute various tricks involving pickaxe manipulation.
Difficulty ~ Tricky to beyond Mayhem.



Pickaxe 18 – Lemmings on the Road to Ruin
Don't let this one ruin your day, cross your fingers and you'll be on the high road.

6 - One

Another non-standard rating that only contains one-minute-levels. Who likes to be rushed by the clock ? I don't, but I made 20 of these levels anyway.
Difficulty ~ Tricky to beyond Mayhem.



One 08 – Baptised With a Perfect Name
Well, I think it's pretty obvious that you have to HURRY UP here.

7 - Special

This special rating only contains 3 5 (Icho has now also put 2 of his one in here :)) levels I made with the Castle tileset (from the game Nicky Boum) that I created years ago. There may be more of them to come in the future.
Difficulty ~ Tricky / Taxing.



Special 03 – Marble Gallery
Will you be able to get past the marble ?

8 - Extra

Here's the additional rating, containing levels that did not make it into the ''real'' ones. Most of them had too many backroutes or were too lame to fit anywhere else. I included them in this pack anyway as bonus levels, because the more the better !
Difficulty ~ Fun to Mayhem.



Extra 10 – Backward Train
Don't even ask about the title.


4.) Some words about the general conversion:

I generally tried to stay very close to the original, but quite some changes were needed due to the NeoLemix physics. There are also some levels which need to have NL features like pick-ups to fix backroutes or to get around some Lemmini glitches.
I've also removed quite a lot of the timers which I thought were not needed and would just annoy the player (of course "time crunchers" and the One rating still have them).
Furthermore I tried to make all traps as visible as possible (without looking stupidly out of place) and esspecially the "Iron Industry" level was changed towards a little puzzle challenge rather than a guessing the path type of level.

5.) Special thanks:

Well of course to Pieuw for giving the ok and making the levels in the first place! :)

As well to:

namida                                    for creating the NeoLemmix engine
GigaLem                                  for making the mainmenu logo for me
Simon, DynaLem and möbius  for testing
Vurez                                      for one of the music tracks (Medival Arrengement)

Congrats on polishing this port to release!

Conversion from Lemmini and testing in NeoLemmix have taken time. You've come up with ingenious fixes for little physics differences and backroutes, keeping Pieuw's spirit and visual style fully intact.

I'm looking forward to play more of this pack over at yours when we meet again after the holidays.

Maybe it's time for me to whip out Open Broadcaster again, especially now that I've mostly finished FF8 Requiem (apart from Omega Weapon)...
My released level packs:
Lemmings Plus Series | Doomsday Lemmings

1.1 update is out with the switch from exe to nxp.
Your save file will be carried over if it's in the same folder as the nxp+music!
Look at the installation guide to see how to update. :)

The mask of the skill panel and skills have been removed as I noticed right now that this does look a bit weird :P

PimoLems confirmed possible with the new player version!

Just a ton of broken replays.

Also all my single level are also intact (apart from the replays).

I think I have another backroute for  8 15    will probably try again when I fix the next bunch :)   (this will take a few versions as it seems ;P)
