I guess if neolemmix is dead we may ALL have to switch to SUPERLEMMINI then.

This joke was dead on arrival, because we all saw it coming as if it had had a skill shadow :P .
My packs so far:
Lemmings World Tour (New & Old Formats), my music-themed flagship pack, 320 levels - Let's Played by Colorful Arty
Lemmings Open Air, my newest release and follow-up to World Tour, 120 levels
Paralems (Old Formats), a more flavour-driven one, 150 levels
Pit Lems (Old Formats), a more puzzly one, 100 levels - Let's Played by nin10doadict
Lemmicks, a pack for (very old) NeoLemmix 1.43 full of gimmicks, 170 levels

The presence of a skill shadow doesn't affect the effectiveness of the skill. In fact, if anything, it guarantees that its placement is more effective.

Not sure how that fits the metaphor though... ;P :forehead:

No, but it does affect its predictability. ;)

You know what would have been a much more mean April Fools joke?

If namida had announced he had reconsidered things and that the Spearer and Grenader would be added into NeoLemmix, after all (on top of the Slider and Laser Blaster). :evil:
Nothing worse than giving people false hopes... :P

Or learn Delphi for the sole reason to get the engine where you want it. At least one person has done it before!

At least three actually - ccexplore, myself and Nepster all had no Delphi experience when we first started tinkering with (Neo)Lemmix; I'm not sure about the others but I had very little OOP experience in general, having only really worked with BASIC and the procedural dialect of PHP prior to that. If Icho contributes to the code side of things in the future, I believe that'd make four.
