L3D should automatically use high-res lemmings if there's enough memory (which there should always be when running it under DOSBox), no special command line needed.

Looking bad in full screen is mostly just to do with the fact that modern screens work differently from the screens of L3D's era. You can try messing around with the scaler settings / output window size in DOSBox's options, but ultimately, the only way to get it really looking like it was intended is to dig out an old CRT screen.

Hey Namida,
    I Thanks Again for all your assistance. I deselected full screen mode and ran it in it's native resolution at 640x480. The high res lemmings came back. Everything's running great. I've already completed the "Fun" levels :-).

Have a good one,

Eric

L3DUtils doesn't directly have support for Winterland, but you can run it through DOSBox the same way as any other DOS game. As it doesn't have CD music or anything like that to deal with, and custom content would usually just use the normal version of L3D (you can still use the Winterland graphics etc on it), there's no real need for L3DUtils to support it.
