Some impressions/replays concerning the lemforum levels
« on: October 16, 2017, 11:53:30 pm »
I solved all Cunning levels of the lemforum pack (as of v. 0.9.1) and attached the replays. 35 were done in 0.9.1 the other 5 in 0.6.36. I checked the older replays with 0.9.1 and they should work there. For "Lix Cannon" I happen to have two (quite similiar) solutions.
I played it mainly on my old laptop, so bigger levels were a bit laggy, which had its advantageous sides but also made certain sections more tedious. But that's my fault for using outdated technology there.
It was sometimes quite rough for me. On some occasions it had to do with finding the approach, on other it was the precision required and on some there was much to deal with at once. Some levels really seemed to require advanced knowledge of the game. But in total it was an interesting task to perform for me. Thanks for making these levels.

Some remarks on some of the levels:

I'm a bit late to the party, but a few comments as well.
Btw, if you have solutions to the other ratings, or even the complete set for Lovely, feel free to upload so we can check for backroutes.
I remember seeing someone on stream (Flopsy or Arty?) solving Land of Rainbows and Unicorns with somewhat precise basher timing which is completely unnecessary but somehow easier to see and most people go for it. It's a bit sad, but hard to fix without sacrificing the aesthetics of the level. So for example I'm curious which solution you found there.

Since there seems to be interest in it I have attached the whole set of Lovely (0.9.1) and Quirky (0.9.1 + 0.6.x) replays.
Some levels have more than one replay. The 0.6.x ones attached should work in 0.9.x. Quirky still contains "The Runaround" there.

Some remarks to the Quirky levels:

Snowball Battle is intended, well done.

Another Lix in the Wall is not intended but very ingenious! Since it's in Quirky I don't mind it having multiple solutions.

Thanks for the feedback.

In course of the mobius levels I looked at some of the lemforum equivalents and I think I backrouted them:

Vicious 2: Conundrum (click to show/hide)

Hopeless 33: Eye of the Needle (click to show/hide)

Both solutions attached.

Haven't looked at the Conundrum replay, but the description matches the intended solution. Most of us found it very difficult to spot this solution when the level was first released.

Eye of the Needle, I've uploaded a fix in the main "Levels for 0.9.x" topic.

I'm not sure if it's intended but if it is then:

Sorry, but I have a solution to the v0.9.4 "Eye of the Needle". I think I will leave it at that no matter if it's backroute or not (since the beginning part is starting to drive me crazy). (There are indications that this is not fully intended but I have the impression I'm somehow closer to the intended solution than my other attempts. I'm at least more content with this one.)

Yes, that's along the same lines as the intended solution, though unnecessarily messy in parts. I'd call it a variation and don't think it needs to be prevented.

Forestidia: Was there any one of the Cunning levels that you felt a bit easier than the rest, possibly deserving of being moved down? I am considering swapping some levels around.

First to my mind comes 6 - Tapestry. It was an amazing level but felt for me a bit easy for the rank.

When looking through the Cunning rank, the easier levels for me (apart from Tapestry) were I think:
8 - Leap of Faith
12 - Cry for Me
maybe 31 - Tick Toxic

Connundrum:

I can take a look at these other backroutes and attempt fixes if you'd like. I seem to be getting better at that lately :lem-shocked:

IMO: levels don't need to follow a super-strict difficult curve and I find nothing wrong with a breather or hard one once in a while.

Since I don't know when I get around doing further levels of the harder ranks and I've gathered some level solutions I've attached some replays (should work with 0.9.4).

4 Daunting levels:

1 - Rhapsody--
4 - Over My Head
12 - Alternative Route Required
21 - Slipping Again

1 Vicious level:

14 - Five for Fighting

1 Hopeless level:

14 - Parking Garage

Your solutions to mine were intended. Extra skills there are a red herring.

Five for Fighting is not actually the same as "Whispering Wind". The terrain is similar but the solutions are supposed to be different. Five for Fighting is supposed to have a time limit which removes a bunch of solutions, but maybe that's no longer necessary.

Over my Head has a few similar solutions.

Interesting that still people are finding "Rhapsody" more difficult than it's position. This has come up a lot it seems, while I've always found this level pretty easy (but still a great one)

I'm not sure if I think Rhapsody is too tough since Daunting levels are supposed to be already tough I think. The level just hit my weakness of having to think in advance and deal with many possible combinations. I probably think more in a bruteforce (and problem by problem) manner, so that many possible combinations are generally harder for me.

Excellent replays -- those are all intended or at least acceptable. "A Towering Proposition" is slightly overcomplicated; the intended solution is very similar but you don't actually need that tricky step of timing the first two miners.

The intended solution to "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" is indeed to make a bridge wall with right-to-left builders, but I had a very different way of achieving this, using the platformers. Any solution that works is fine on this one.

Great work as usual! :lix-grin:

"Derailed Level" is indeed intended. "This Lix Is Your Lix" is not, I'll need to fix that.

"100% Built" is not quite intended (it's based on a challenge for "Tribute to M.C. Escher" and you took advantage of the terrain step that isn't there in the original) but I'll allow it.

"Betcha can't save" is not the original intended solution -- according to Insane Steve's notes on the LemEdit original, you were meant to use three lemmings, sacrificing two to allow the third to exit. But we've known for a long time that this wasn't enforced on the original, there are solutions using only two lemmings, and it is indeed possible to save more than one :)

That's the intended right-side solution to "Buridan's Lix", but you haven't really finished the level until you've found both :lix-cool:

"Halfway Down" is a level where anything that works is acceptable. The originally intended solution doesn't work in D Lix anyway. None of the solutions I've seen before use that cuber trick, that's a neat one.

I have now found a solution for the left exit. This one seemed more complicated and timing intensive.

"Gomen ne sunao ja nakute" is a backroute; I'll need to fix that.

Segmentation Fault: original level is 62/82. The possibility to ignore one hatch is an accident from reducing lix to 20/40 after VSI was removed. My best solution (attached) loses 18, with 10 in hatch after the route is complete. Obviously reducing numbers still further is not an option, so perhaps require 21 or 22/40? If others feel that requiring lose-18 is unnecessarily fiddly, could just go up to 30/50 or whatever.

Alternative methods required: Is open-ended and meant to have many solutions.
Do we know that for certain?

Quote
Bipolar Maniac: This backroute is again a result of cutting down the number of lix without giving backroutes too much thought. There's no harm in giving e.g. 20 here.
Not true; the lix count was reduced specifically in order to cut out another backroute. With the spawn interval at its current value of 20, this backroute is possible if the lix count is 15 or above.

Pretty much. Alternative methods recommended came first, then people figured out there are one-of-each solutions and Steve felt that'd make a great new level.

Interesting, I don't know that backroute. Forestidia's backroute seems to rely on having at most a certain number of lix. So would something like 13 or so work?

Attached: Even simpler solution to Feel the Pressure. It took me 12 minutes to find this, including a rant halfway-through about the wrong shading of the steel pieces' left edges. :lix-evil: Maybe 8 minutes raw.

I suspect Pressure is easier than Stickup, which is possibly still underranked even in late Daunting. Both Forestidia's and my solution to Pressure look plausible to find, hers probably even more than mine.

Increasing the size of the entire level (the main thing being increasing the length of the basher's part) while also increasing the lix count to ~20 or whatever is needed) should fix this I think.

A solution to Survival of the Craftiest. Not sure if it's a backroute.

Edit: Attached another solution.

SotC is a resource management level where any solution is acceptable, so no worries there. Nice replays! :thumbsup:

Ascending: Another anything-goes level with a few known solutions. Your is actually the closest to mine so far :thumbsup:

Circular Ruins: It's an unfortunate effect of the miner and digger behaviour that you can pull off this trick, leaving the single pixel that interrupts the climber. Solutions shouldn't depend on single pixels like that. The intended trick for this part of the level is different and much cleaner. The rest of the solution is as intended, including the use of the batter.

We're in This One Together: Backroute-ish but it gets some main ideas.

geoo/Steve: Is Forestidia's solution possible in the original Lemmix map? No, it isn't possible in the original Cheapo map. Fix with steel, earmarked for next release because the Cheapo WeTogether had steel here.

Very close to intended. Still misses the hallmark feature of the solution, but I don't see how to force it any further without making harder the intended solution.

I've solved "The Lix Lies Down on Broadway". Not sure if it's intended since skills left and saved all in a lose-1 level.

LiesBroadway: Your solution is a backroute, but it's a beautiful backroute, worthy of making a standalone level from this.

I have no idea how to prevent this. The technique to bypass the final blocker is new to me and looks surprisingly universal.

<SimonN> Forestidia: wow, no, backroute. Amazing that it works though.
<Forestidia> I guessed so. Thanks for checking.
<Forestidia> It's extremely precise to make it work.
<SimonN> Yeah. It looks slick but it must be super nasty
<Forestidia> Absolutely.
