  the arrows in the bottom-left corner that slide the level around
gameinsky 10 years ago
  shift level arrows ?
Hexicube 10 years ago
  oh also mention the shift level arrows, got a level cramped into a corner

  GIS mention the "in-game game styles" button
it shows you what the level will look like in-game, apart from there being no border on walls and powered stuff doesn't work
oh also mention the "fill level with selected" button

  "Thumbnails always have to be taken in testmode, while holding shift."

What about Ringmania?

"There is a story in the level that the tutle has to investigate"

  I might add to this when P4M cones out lol
chris3000 10 years ago
  Well, elizea is in jg2.
gameinsky 10 years ago
  In P4M there's no background.
I am not that thought on background, atleast not for beginning users.
chris3000 10 years ago
  I don't think my levels are good enough in some areas. Especially moonlights and JG2. IMO, some admins are a little too tough on the design and background. This will probably happen in P4M too.

  Hello, I found out it's quite hard for beginners to make a good level now. Level expections are higher than before.
That's why I made this tuto, but if you know somethings more, say, it in a comment, and I'll add it in this tuto.

Please note that you don't need to read all, it has individual leveltricks for each game, it's a lot of text, but you don't need to read it all.
