[NL] Mobilems (2022)
« on: March 05, 2020, 01:51:05 AM »
Come one! Come all! ........ The Long and Awaited .........

note: since this (previous known as mobilems 3) nor mobilems 2 were ever really true sequels, I've removed the 3 and the "Lemmings Strike Again" from the title. This is my atm, one and only levelpack. The levels that appeared in previous versions 1 or 2 that I haven't included here I've scrapped and don't consider very worthwhile. There is also a minor update to correct the titles and one level "The Old Lemming and the Sea".


For use with Latest NeoLemmix. Link is in attachment.

If you've played Mobilems 1 or 2, some of these levels will be familiar. Some are old; some are new, most are modified/updated versions of old levels. Makes use of some of NeoLemmix's latest features (such as the shimmier!)

Just put the whole folder into your levels folder.

-Extract the music folder and put those files in your music folder

The solutions folder contains replays for every level if you get stuck or want to check if your solution is a backroute!

----------------------
Thanks to Nessy for recent testing. Too many people helped make this pack a reality since years ago to mention; thanks to all. Many of the levels have been played/tested and backrouted by numerous people for over 5 years now.
----------------------------
This pack doesn't use any graphic sets that should not be available here/downloadable by NL.
If you have any problems getting the pack to work correctly please let me know.

Feel free to discuss the pack here or on the discord server. My name is mobius (a.k.a. CallMeBronco) there.

ok, I fixed the pack so one can just extract it to the main Neolemmix folder. Contains (levels, music, replay).

Friendly 19's replay will Not work due to the swimmer change as the swimmer falls off the bottom of the screen. The level needs a fix. All others work, although I had to rearrange them to match the correct level.

Just extract the rar to your main Neolemmix folder(will fall into place)

@Jeremy - Are you saying that when you load up Neolemmix you don't see the pack listed at all? While the folder in the zip file is Mobilems 3, which you extract to the levels folder of your Neolemmix directory, the actual name of the pack in the Neolemmix player will show up as The Lemmings Strike Again! I just checked my copy that I downloaded from a really long time ago (last year according to searches on my hard drive), and all the levels load fine for me. Perhaps some things got extracted to the wrong location? Also, you extract the music tracks to the music folder where your Neolemmix directory is.

That was my issue. I fixed the files so it was correct. Then I looked for the wrong title, like you said.
It's all good now!

lol I finally got around to this a year later. This pack is now updated for the current version and that level is fixed; as well as the title changed now to simple "Mobilems".

Hello @mobius, I just wanted to mention a few times the levelpack uses "freind" or "freindly".  The correct spelling is "friend" or "friendly". :thumbsup:

Hello mobius,

I have solved the first two ranks. Here are my replays and feedback. Also, link to my LP for anyone who wants to watch: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbp2m4KlFpJsirtpJyWvtLG09kAIL3VRg Enjoy! :P

General Feedback

Mobilems 2022, formally called Mobilems 3: The Lemmings Strike Back!, is a level pack by mobius which consists mostly of levels from his Mobilems and Mobilems 2 packs. I have had the pleasure of playing his Mobilems on Lemmini years ago, but I have not played any of Mobilems 2 due to how the pack isn't available to download anywhere on the Forums. I would love to play through that pack if mobius is able to find the files and send a download link.

As it's been years since I've played Mobilems, I will most likely not recognize too many levels from that pack during my LP. Some I definitely remember, though! Here, those levels seem to be more patched up than in the Lemmini version. Also, the pack tends to the easier side than most other custom level packs, so if you're looking for something that's not too difficult, this pack is for you! Despite the lower difficulty, I remember enjoying Mobilems a lot when I played through it back in the days!

Friendly Rank Feedback

Those levels were for the most part not too hard, although I admit the very limited skillset levels in this rank are harder than I thought they be. I would even say some are a step up in difficulty after some of the X-of-everythings levels, but there are also some not so easy ones, most particularly those which provide 3-of-everything or less.

Flapdoodle Rank Feedback

In contrast to the previous rank, this rank immediately starts off with puzzly levels through very limited skillsets and just the bare minimum which increases the difficulty, significantly in some cases. There's still the rare X-of-everythings from time to time, but don't expect them to be abundant like they were in the Friendly rank. You can pretty much expect the pack to have essentially stopped playing around once you enter this rank.

As mentioned before, I'm immensely enjoying this pack! :thumbsup: I'm almost through the Brouhaha rank, so I think I will do a post each time I complete another rank from here on out.

Brouhaha rank completely solved, so I'm back with more replays and feedback.

Brouhaha Rank Feedback

Some hard levels here and there, but still some pretty good ones too! As usual, I'm continuing to enjoy this pack.

Only the Heinous rank left. I've already solved the first 8, so making good progress there. Probably will finish the pack in a day or so! ;)

Heinous rank complete and thus I have solved all of the pack. My entire replay collection is attached, and as usual more feedback.

Heinous Rank Feedback

The hardest levels of the pack are in this rank, though there are plenty of breathers here too. Lots of great levels here! Expect a lot of repeats, although some aren't exactly repeats in the sense of identical level layouts.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)


Playing through some of the levels again definitely reminded me of why I like the pack so much back when I first played it on Lemmini. Indeed, this continues to be the case, even moreso as many of the levels that seemed to be unfixable on Lemmini are more solid and backroute proof for the NL version. However, I wouldn't say that the pack is easy, as I got surprised at how difficult the pack got in various places throughout the LP. So, for this pack I would say Easy-Hard is an appropriate difficulty range judging what I experienced playing through the pack. It might even be borderline Medium for the lower end of the difficulty because of how the difficulty is very wonky in the first rank, but there's still a lot of easy levels there. Even then, I would still recommend this pack for others to play through. I think you still might learn a thing or two here, but it's still a pretty approachable and enjoyable pack for the most part. It does get difficult later on, but that's pretty much true for most packs, where they generally progress in order of difficulty if the ranks/levels are placed correctly.

Thanks for this pack mobius, and glad to hear you're doing better! :thumbsup:

Thanks for all the helpful feedback :thumbsup:
I've started watching the LP and noticed some backroutes already. I'll release an update sometime soon.

On my version (except for the graphic card which I don't feel like fixing) friendly is spelled correctly; so I don't know why its showing up wrong for others.
