How to update (click to show/hide)
  • Observers in a networking game begin zoomed out; they see the entire map without any extra input.
  • In multiplayer, there are no more black boxes on the score graph after a nuke. The black boxes obscured the bars of low-scoring players. The black boxes were a hack solution before we had the nice score board when you mouse over the score graph. Now, to see who nuked, mouse over the score graph.
  • Partially fix #385: The replay tweaker displays only the first 18 plies (= assignments or nukes) instead of painting the 19th, 20th, ... ply over the remainder of the panel. In the long run, the tweaker needs a scrollbar.
  • The tweaker explains itself with short text while it has no plies to show yet. This is better than presenting the tweaker as a completely blank GUI widget.
  • Fix #327: After you save a replay manually from the replay browser, the browser reloads the directory and immediately shows the newly saved file.
  • Fix: The splat ruler draws properly again when the mouse is on the map (i.e., off the panel). 0.9.28 had a bug where the ruler would only draw while the mouse was on the panel instead of on the land.
  • Fix: In multiplayer battles, you can zoom again, even though there is no GUI button to zoom. By default, zoom is bound to the mouse wheel.
  • Fix #317: In a deeply nested directory hierarchy, the browsers' breadcrumb navigation condenses some higher-level directories into a single button. The top-level directory keeps its exclusive button at the very left.
  • Removed a default keybinding duplication: Highlight goals and splat ruler were both bound to Tab. Now, only the splat ruler is bound to Tab, highlight goals has no default hotkey.

It's been a while! In August 2019, I got a fulltime job as a C++ engineer. Naturally, I've begun to relax with software-unrelated things during weekends. But as promised, here's a Lix release still in 2019.


  • Fix #339: Imploder animation: Now, purple stars and vortexes circle around the center, then get sucked into the center. The old animation was too slow and subtle.
  • Fix #388: Oblivion sound was too noisy and high-pitched. Replaced this sound effect with meow-like voice acting that is not shrill.
  • lemforum: ccexplore fixed a backroute in Brickout.
  • Always print hotkeys on buttons' lower-right corner. Removed user option that toggled whether hotkeys would be printed on buttons.
  • Code: Remove body encounters from physics implementation; these happened at (foot - 4), (foot - 8), (foot - 12). Always check foot encounters instead. Before, only fire hazards checked for body encounters. Draw larger trigger area (in the editor) for fire to compensate. No changes to file formats. No changes to physics.
  • Multiplayer maps: Added Down with Frogs by Flopsy. Added remake of Humps (2-player map from 2010) using Lix's earth terrain. Removed endless falls at the side of Honeypots.

Just wondering as this was posted less than 24 hours until our multiplayer session starts: Will both versions (0.9.29 & 0.9.30) work on the same server?
Musical fact: All of Tim Wright's compositions for Original Lemmings are 125 BPM.

Yes, any 0.9.x is good for multiplayer, in particular 0.9.29 and 0.9.30.
