Lemmings in Weirdyland (2023 edition)
« on: January 22, 2023, 01:42:39 PM »
Well, after much messing around and tweaking and fiddling and faffing, I'm basically re-releasing my old levels in a fun format that will basically work on current NeoLemmix versions. It's barely even a "new" release, because all of these levels were just scraped from the archives. But I've given them the proverbial spit & polish and they're ready for a revisit, I suppose. :thumbsup:

The general idea was just my own vanity project, combined with nostalgia - a chance for me to present my levels in the way I always wanted them to be presented, when I was younger and more active on the forums.

Features:
- 50 levels, in 5 groups of 10, with silly "difficulty ratings" attached (that aren't particularly consistent)
- A hand-picked music playlist taken shamelessly from the Acorn version of Lemmings (aka the version I fell in love with as a kid, and the version with the best music, in my humble opinion)... in other words, all the levels now have the music I originally intended them to have

And that's it, basically. If you're REALLY bored and have nothing better to do, check out my nonsense levels from 2008-2009, now in the neatly presented package. Feel frustrated or bored, just like I did. But also hopefully enjoy it a bit. Some of them ended up in Revenge of the Lemmings, after all.

Special thanks to kaywhyn and namida for giving me helpful and nudges on the road to getting this done.

Time for a nap, methinks. ;P

EDIT: The download should now be a Dropbox link. THIS is the version with the proper logo, and the proper music playlist, in the proper order.

I haven't added the music folder, purely because I'm the only person who cares about my music choices. It's all just Acorn tunes, which can be found elsewhere. My own copy of the levels has the music just how I like it. *shrug*

Here is a link to the acorn music and the music file to put in the level folder (or any pack's folder) so you can use these. This is the best quality version of these songs I have ever seen.

Thank you so much for the Lemmings in Weirdyland logo! Very thoughtful. Also, the Acorn music I've been using is a very specific playlist, but I couldn't upload it to the forum because the file size was too large. I might try again later once I've figured out how to use cloud storage properly. :P

Congrats on the release, even if they all been released quite a while back :P Glad that I could be of service in helping to get your levels converted and into an up-to-date format for NL. I will definitely take a look at these sometime in the future, though it might not be for a while. I really enjoyed the ones that are in RotL, so I'm sure it'll be the same for the other levels of yours I haven't seen yet.

For the music download, I use Dropbox. Of course, this isn't the only way to do it. It just happens to be what I use to provide the music for download ;) Some others too, I believe.

I edited the original post and swapped out the original zip download for the latest version of the pack, with jkapp76's logo included (THANKS! :thumbsup:) and the music all in a folder, in the right order.

I have tried the first 3 ranks of the pack , and here are the replays of my solutions.

Very nice pack , and very good job converting these old levels. The ones , that had appeared in "Revenge of the Lemmings" , I had played them also , in various versions of that pack.

Many good levels here! my favourites of these , are Drivel 10 , Blather 2 , and Blather 5. Also , my solutions for Drivel 9 and Blather 10 may be backroutes.

Thanks for updating the download link :thumbsup: One more tip: Change the 0 to a 1 at the end of the link so that it automatically downloads for users. In this way, users don't need to sign up/in to Dropbox to download the pack ;)

Completed the first 2 ranks, here are my replays. I'll come back and do the rest another time. Looking good so far, these are great levels! :thumbsup:

It's cool that you're enjoying it! And folks have been very kind in general. It's pretty strange to be back on the forums after such a long break; I feel simultaneously like a newbie, and an old fogey. :-[ It's particularly strange (and funny) to be interacting with Lemmings community folks whose content I've been enjoying for a while now - such as yourself WillLem - and the likes of kaywhyn, namida, Flopsy, IchoTolot, etc.

The Lemmings community has evolved so much in the time I've been away, and the high level of fun stuff that people are producing is always pretty intimidating. As well as the mediocre stuff that I've re-released for NeoLemmix, I also create a handful of levels for L2 back in the day, and I think the download links for them are still buried somewhere deep in the history of this forum! :P I might look into resurrecting them too, at some point.

TL;DR - I'm glad that people are playing my old levels, and vaguely mystified that people think that they're good. They're not. But I had fun making them.
