You are running Adblock...
We're really sorry for the inconvenience, but please would you disable your ad-blocker? Our adverts are relevant and non-intrusive, they appear only at the top and the sides, never in the content. They don't include auto-playing audio either, they really won't spoil your enjoyment of the site. Thank you in advance!
Want to see this appeal go away forever? Support us on Patreon and we'll make that happen! Click the button on the left to find out more.
"I'm not running an ad-blocker!" - Refresh/reload the page, if you still see the panda or have other problems then click here to contact us immediately, thanks.
"Why are you doing this?" - Frankly we're struggling to make ends meet here especially since the site got more popular. The only way we can think to cover our costs is to run ads, but if so many of you keep blocking them...
"But I never click ads!" - Doesn't matter, you should only click them if they interest you. We get paid based on the number of views AND the number of clicks.
"You ruined the site!!!1! I want to send you hate mail!!" - Sure, click here.
Another fact - We have the software and the power to completely block adblock users from our site, but we're not going to, at least for now. We figure most of you would like to support us and you only installed Adblock because of other sites that aren't so considerate with their ad placement. Please, don't punish us because of them, in the seven or so years I've been a blogger/webmaster I've ALWAYS considered the need to balance monetisation with reader experience. I want to build an audience not send them away.
So go on, whitelist us and any other site you love. If it wasn't for ads, the internet would lose a whole chunk of really great niche content like this, which would be a real shame in our opinion.
Now, go ahead and read the page if you want to, but wouldn't it be much more convenient if you just whitelisted us? :)
Lemmings Paintball, really? This little oddity came out in 1996 and disappeared into obscurity soon after. A curious isometric puzzle game, you’ll need to guide your lemmings around mazes to locate flags and paintball the opposition. While the cynics amongst you might well conclude that the Lemmings are simply in this game to cash in on the 1990’s craze, gamers who enjoyed other old school isometric shooters such as Cannon Fodder may find some fun with this title.
The game should install without any issues on a modern PC. Simply pop the CD-ROM into your computers optical drive and follow the on-screen prompts. If the games autorun window doesn’t appear automatically, browse to the CD in Computer/This PC and run the AUTORUN.EXE file manually. There were no patches released for the game that we could find, so once installed you can simply start playing.
Playing the game
No compatibility options are required for the game, simply start it from the Start menu or Start screen.
You will notice that the game runs in a window. Lemmings Paintball runs at 320×240 resolution. Full screen resolutions this low are no longer supported by modern versions of Windows, so if you try to put the game into full screen mode it will simply throw up an error. If you do want to play full screen, you can set your desktop to 640×480 resolution and then start the game. By doing this, the game appears to run full screen. To force your desktop into this resolution, follow the steps below. These steps should work in Windows 7 and Windows 8.
1) Right click on your desktop and choose “Screen Resolution” to open the Screen Resolution window.
2) On the window that now appears, choose “Advanced Settings” to open the Advanced Settings window.
3) Click on the button that says “List All Modes” to list all possible screen modes.
4) Scroll right to the top of this list to find “640 x 480, True Colour (32 bit), 60 Hertz”. If you can’t find that particular screen mode, it may be that your computer or graphics card does not support it. On the other hand, you may simply need to add it manually using your graphics cards software. Consult the documentation that came with your graphics software (for Nvidia cards, custom screen modes can be added in the Nvidia Control Panel, for instance).
5) Click on OK and your desktop will change resolution. Now, start Lemmings Paintball again and it should appear to run full-screen. When playing pseudo full screen like this, you may find the games menus are inaccessible. There’s nothing you really need to change in these menus anyway and when you’re done playing, you can quit the game by pressing ALT and F4 together.
