Clone of Lemmings. Version 0.6.3

Setup:
Download the attatched file lemmings.zip. It contains .cia and .3dsx version.
Fill the subfolders of the /3ds/lemmings folder with data from DOS Lemmings (see README.txt files in these subfolders). These files are not included in the archive since they are protected by copyright law. In order to run the software, at least one subfolder must be filled. You may fill any combination of subfolders, depending on the Lemmings games you own.
There exist free demo versions, which contain 4–5 levels each. All demos are supported by Lemmings for 3DS. Since they were released for free, it should be legal to link to a download location. You can find free demo versions of Lemmings games here.

Clone of Lemmings for DOS.

Setup:
Copy the files from original DOS Lemmings into the same folder as the lemmings.3dsx file. These files are not included since they are protected by copyright law. Don't use "Oh No! More Lemmings!" or "Holiday Lemmings", because they are not supported yet.

Still in (very slow) development, so some features are missing. At the moment, I still try to learn how to use DSP service to add sound to the game...

Freakin' /awesome/ ... Any chance you can make a .cia of this too? I know it's a bit troublesome with the copyrighted assets since you can't just pack it all in RomFS, but being able to install it directly would be nice. It might need a hardcoded path so the files don't have to go in the root of the SD card though.

Not for now. I was not smart enough to create a working rsf file - even for a test program that does not read anything from SD card. Maybe I will work on it later (I can't promise), but at the moment support for "Oh No! More Lemmings" and "Holiday Lemmings" has priority (since it should not be too much effort). Afterwards I want to focus on DSP (don't know whether I will succeed playing the music, but I hope I could play the FX sound at least). If all these things work, I could try again to create a CIA file...

Is this a port of this project?

This one was AMAZING!!!
No, I have implemented it from scratch. However, when I finish implementing my own wishlist (so maybe never ;)), I may implement user wishes (like "make it more like Lemmings for DS)

If you're using a Makefile environment, just grab a copy of Steveice10's buildtools repo on github, put it in a 'buildtools' subfolder, then copy the Makefile from FBI's repo and tweak it for your libs and give it a new name/uniqueid/description for your project.

Excellent, sounds like it might not be quite ready to replace Lemmings DS yet, but I thoroughly support this venture and will be keeping an eye on it :)

Thank you for this. I LOVE Lemmings. I remember getting the Amiga original for Christmas when it was first released. Can't wait to give this a try. Thank you!

I want to encourage you to post wished features (or issues) that are not listed in the original post yet. I cannot promise to implement any of them, but I think such a list helps me making the game better.

Really enjoying playing Lemmings on my 3DS :) Just a quick suggestion: please could you make either R or A function as the fast-forward button in addition to L? I'm left-handed, so having L bound to fast-forward is slightly annoying as it means I have to remove the stylus from the screen to press it. If it was bound to R or A, I could hold the 3DS with my right hand and do all the button controls with my thumb and index finger, and keep the stylus in my left hand :)

Download version 0.2 and create a file names LEFTHANDED.DAT in the same directory as lemmings.3dsx to swap L and R.

watched thread for when theres Oh No! more lemmings Support
The original post has just been updated. Simply download version 0.2 (and report any bugs). Notice that the folder structure has changed. Please move the files from original Lemmings into the subfolder "orig".
Oh No! More Lemmings can be accessed by setting the rate greater than "Mayhem" (or by leaving the "orig" folder empty. However, in the second case the original levels will be missing of course).
