Overall Lemmings 95 works well on Windows 10 but the scrolling messages on the main menu and the fast-forward feature in-game run too quickly. Perhaps they are tied to the frame rate.

Also, are there any additional level packs for Lemmings 95?

Hi vatten,

Welcome to the Forums! :thumbsup: I never played all of Lemmings for Windows 95, but I have played some of it to know that fast forward is way too fast on modern machines such that you don't ever see the lemmings make the long walk in between and upon engaging it it will simply end the level. AFAIK, there has never been a patch to address this. Thus, fast forward works properly only on very old, slow machines. For that reason, it is advised that you don't engage FF until you have all of the path ready AND you're absolutely certain that the crowd won't get into danger along the way. Obviously this is where it would help on those levels where there's a lot of building involved, but unfortunately you won't be able to engage it even once while playing those levels, or any level for that matter.

Hi vatten,

Welcome to LF! To add to kaywhyn's comments, I'd strongly recommend SuperLemminiToo as a way to enjoy Windows 95-style Lemmings on a modern PC. The graphics are basically identical, but the levels all have missing water objects restored as well as the horns on the fire exit.

Gameplay is also more or less idential, but the Fast Forward button works as expected, and there are a number of other QOL features (including replay saving) which make it an overall much better gameplay experience.

Give it a try!

I have been able to use FF on fast pc's by rapidly pressing the button twice on the keyboard. Sometimes it'd still go too far, but then you can just use the replay to get back up to where you were... by rapidly pressing the forward button twice a few times. :P
If I recall correctly, Lemmings 95 uses the same level format as the original Lemmings. Have you tried using Lemmix packs? I'd try it myself, but I should get to studying... :D
