1) Hey, wait a minute! I wrote a FAQ!

One day I answered a thread on the comp.sys.ibm.pc.games newsgroup 
where one guy asked for the "Lemmings" Level codes, and the next guy 
asked for the "Oh No! More Lemmings" Level codes. While grepping for 
the answers through my accumulated Lemmings text files, It struck me 
that there was a need for a Lemmings FAQ. So here it is.

Any corrections or additions to this FAQ should be emailed to the
address at the bottom of this FAQ. New versions will be brought
out as life in general permits. I promise not to drop this FAQ
permanantly without calling for an volunteer to maintain the FAQ
after I'm gone.

Disclaimer: I'm not very good at this game. That's why I've built 
up a collection of walkthroughs, cheats, and other stuff that would
be suitable to build into a FAQ. All the `meat' in this FAQ comes 
from the selfless gamers who put in the time to write down their
discoveries, that others might benifit from them. Wherever possible,
I've credited the originator of the text.

2) What's "Lemmings", Anyway?

"Lemmings" is a popular computer game. In it, the player has to guide
a stream of anthropomorphic lemmings from a start "Hatch", through a 
series of hazards, to a finish "Exit". To aid the player a certain number
of lemmings may be given special talents to bridge gaps, dig tunnels,
etc., and help their comrads exit the level with as few casualties as 
possible.

The game has spawned three editions thus far, and has been ported to 
many different computers. This FAQ only deals with the IBM PC versions, 
however.

3) What are the different versions of "Lemmings?"

	3.1)	"Lemmings"

The original. 120 levels divided into 30 levels each of: FUN,
TRICKY, TAXING, MAYHEM. Each level is a seperate game, and once
one level has been completed a password is revealed for the next 
level.

	3.2)	"Oh No! More Lemmings."

The 2nd Lemmings game. More of the same. TAME, CRAZY, WILD, WICKED, 
HAVOC each having 20 levels making a total of 100 levels.

	3.3)	"Lemmings II: The Tribes"

The third Lemmings game, confusingly called Lemmings II. This is
radically different from the first two, having 12 tribes each
with 10 levels making a total of 120 levels. In each tribe,
you must save a sufficient number of lemmings from each level before
you are allowed to proceed onto the next level. Each tribe is seperate, 
however, so you get to choose from 12 levels each time you play the 
game; as opposed the first two versions, where you had to complete 
each level one by one before you could move onto the next one. (Sorry 
if I'm not explaining this very well.)

	3.4)	"Xmas Lemmings"

A freeware yuletide taster from the guys at Psygnosis. 4 levels,
with xmassy backgrounds, hazards and lemmings. Download it via FTP
now!

8) Problems of a technical nature

	8.1)	Faulty game saves in "Lemmings 2 The Tribes"

From: Lasse Hero  (from Brian L. Johnson)
Some people experience bad game saves with "Lemmings 2 The Tribes".
If this is a problem, try avoiding the top & bottom game save slots.
The rest seem to work OK.

	8.2)	installing "Lemmings 2 The Tribes" 

With "Lemmings 2 The Tribes", install from the floppy diskettes;
don't try copying the disks then installing from the hard drive.

If the game doesn't run OK at first, try installing from a
"vanilla boot". Remove as many device drivers & TSRs as possible 
from your autoexec.bat & config.sys files, and reinstall.
(It is essential to make backup copies of these files before you try 
this. Also keep a bootable floppy diskette on hand, don't remove the
drivers necessary for your on-the-flu compression software [eg
Stacker & Superstor] and if you're not sure about what you're
doing, seek help!)

	8.3)	installing the "L2 demo"

With the "L2 demo", remember to use the "-d" option when you unzip the
file, so the recursive subdirectories are uncompressed.

From: dexb8836@mach1.wlu.ca (Luis De barros u)

For everybody who has some dificulties with the second part of Lemmings.
I know that this works with Oh No, No more Lemmings!. I'm not sure if it also
works with the first game.

At the code screen type in SLAMRACING. It will display a message that you
activated the cheat mode.
Now to skip the harder levels press the "5" on the keypad and you'll skip
right to the next level with 100% !

From Bill Gilliland - skaven@u.washington.edu

Hmmm....other tricks....these are not really strategies but 'tools' for your
use in a given particular situation.  These are not all of them, but are
pretty useful (okay, the first one isn't THAT useful, but its still
quite a trick)

BASHING THROUGH STEEL:  If you wait until a lemming hits a steel surface and
turns around, then make him a basher (while facing away from the steel) he
will remove one to three pixels from the steel.  After a little experimentation
with a lemming I got stuck vertically in a steel column (by building repeatedly
right under it), I decided that steel acts like one-way columns with arrows all
pointing out from the center.  If you can reverse-bash your way to the center,
you can bash the rest of the way through the column normally. 

SPIRAL STAIRCASE:  If a builder comes into contact with a blocker, he will
turn around *and keep building*.  This lets you 'turn a corner' with your
bridges.

RELEASE ONE LEMMING:  If you have a blocker holding in your lemmings, and want
to get just one lemming past him without blowing him up, build a bridge that
would go over the blocker's head.  Then watch the lemmings falling off the
end of the bridge.  As soon as one falls past the blocker, make the builder a 
digger.  This stops the rest from getting past.

STOP THAT LEMMING!
To stop the Lemmings suicidal stampede when you don't have any 
Blockers, there is an easy way and a difficult way, depending upon 
what resources you have: 
Easy: Use a Basher or Miner to make a horizontal or diagonal hole, then 
change it to a Builder to make it stop bashing or mining (=Anti-Lemming).
Hard: If you haven't got any excavating-type Lemmings, then you can block
Lemmings by using Builders to build a 4-deep layer of steps, with the 
starting edge of each layer in line, making a high vertical face, off 
which the Lemmings will bounce. This is much easier to describe than to 
achieve. This latter technique is essential to complete at least one 
screen.

(ed - some people will not agree with this last statement)

From: darmstro@acs.ucalgary.ca
There is a cheat code for Lemmings:  if you type in BILLANDTED,
it will activate the cheat mode and you can then press 5 on the
numeric keypad to pass each level.   There is one for Xmas
Lemmings, but I can't remember what it was.
