Both Xmas Lemmings 1991 and 1992 are still missing from HOL I think.

I'm trying to find out what coverdisk Xmas Lemmings 1991 came on?

I know that Xmas Lemmings 1992 came on Amiga Format Issue 30 January 1992 coverdisk 30b

But I cannot see anything on AMR about the 1991 demo.

Xmas Lemmings '1991' never came on a magazine coverdisk, it was handed out at tradeshows, they made the '1992' version for Amiga Format as you say in Jan 1992 hence the name, there is a 1991 copy going on ebay, i have one myself.

Are you sure, that you remember correctly? I have never seen or heard of such releases.
Also a member "Dino" was never mentioned in any "DLT" member list!

Thank you very much for responding. It's very kind of you.

I was the founder and the first global organizer of Delight for the first 3,5 years (02/1991-07/1994) so I may know quite well who were all (or nearly all, after 20 years) the members, at least for that period of time and a couple of additional years.

The question of memberlists at Delight is a difficult one to answer as the group had unique organizational features which constantly evolved over the years, and most decisions regarding memberlists were made on a case-by-case basis, taking account of internal policy and even sometimes 'political' aspects of human resource management and other strategic considerations.

I'm currently totally redoing this page where you will find the most possible accurate and exhaustive all-times memberlist of Delight members:
http://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/Delight

Once it will be done in its final form (I anticipate in 08/2013, after finishing all intros/demos/other prods. descriptions and a few more edits), I'll probably create a new thread here in the appropriate place and encourage other groups to do the same thing in order to re-establish the facts (incl. true 'behind-the-scene' facts) and give the respect deserved to all of the people and groups who 'made' the Scene.

So, Dino was one of the first crackers at Delight, and he joined in mid-1991 with TDC and Haze, two other co-former members of The Yankees' C64 group. His main task/specialty was to onepart/onefile some popular (mostly PD and emulated C64 to Amiga) games so that they could take a lot less space and be distributed as exclusives on Delight packs and sometimes on our BBS's. Nearly every game boasted a different intro onefiled with the game.

I can answer why we agreed that he would do this instead of cracking Amiga blockbusters, but that's another story outside the scope of this thread.

If you still doubt him being a member of Delight, please find below two small examples of his releases:
http://bitworld.bitfellas.org/demo.php?id=33670
http://bitworld.bitfellas.org/demo.php?id=27770

I remember XMas Lemmings and Oh no more Lemmings were some of his other releases, and there should be more of these I've unfortunately forgotten after so many years.

Btw, as a great part of my own data collection was either seized/lost/disk crashed, I would be extremely glad if I could find help in recovering those rare Delight releases.

Thank you!
