I seen the run of lemmings on the front screen which reminded me that I found this online a few weeks ago. I was wondering if this would be allowed to be run for this?

If not I have a windows pc version that is not dos also is this allowed?

Not sure about web application, but I'm going to go with no for now, because it looks like a custom porting, and I'm unsure how many unlicensed forms of the game like this exist (and would be difficult to keep up with for now).

You can definitely do the Windows/PC version. You may have noticed... I haven't added those levels. If you are interesting in the running the game though I can spend some time to add time.

As an additional note, this version came much later and included "Oh No! More Lemmings" Levels attached. However, they had to make room for some of the levels by eliminating a few of the originals to fit it all.

So the first 114 Levels for the Windows version will be listed on the Lemmings page, and the latter 95 will be listed on the Oh No! More Lemmings page.

Okie dokie no hurry in adding the windows version still have to relearn the levels after a long long time. Cheers.

Finished levels, setting up full game runs for the 112 original levels. Will work on the Oh No! More Lemmings soon.

The leaderboard is sorted by real time, right?
In that case, Windows Lemmings will be interesting... because it includes a fast-forward option.

For individual levels, igt takes precedent. For level groupings and stuff, I'm thinking RTA is probably more important (Since I imagine adding up 30+ igt's all the time would be problematic. Not really 100% certain yet, though. In any case, don't mind the use of the fast-forward option.

I guess I might as well reuse this topic, as the title is relevant: are the lem-fix executables allowed? There's lem-fix1, lem-fix2 and lem-fix3. The only thing they change is the music.
If the patches are allowed they could be added to the Resources, perhaps.

Not sure what they are; are they only relevant to the Windows 95 version of the game?

I mean, if they literally do nothing but change the music. I don't really see why that would be a problem.

Oh, I'm sorry, they're for the MS-DOS version. It normally plays the first track whenever you fail a level or restart the game. The lem-fix executables change this odd behaviour.

Gotcha, then yea, I don't see any issue with it. Heck, I've never noticed the problem before, so I'm wondering if I already have it.

I agree with the timing, by the way.
When doing IL's, it makes sense to me to execute the level optimally, pausing not costing time. When doing full runs, in-game time shouldn't be considered very important, as if it were, you could technically play one level at a time, and it'd be considered a full run, after adding up the individual times.
I do wonder how fast forward will influence runs. I am in favour of it being allowed, though; it'll create an interesting difference for the ports that support it. It should be fixed, though, but I think it is in Windows 95. I mean, in some games, fast forward doesn't put the game at a fixed speed, but rather the highest speed the CPU/GPU can take, and that would make runs unfair.
