There are two programs to help you make your own levels:
jnbpack and jnbunpack.

     jnbpack ‐o /tmp/newlevel.dat <file1> <file2> <file3>
etc

     or you can just put all the files in a dir, cd to that
dir and do

     jnbpack ‐o /tmp/newlevel.dat *

     and it will put all the files in the current dir inside
the packfile.  Don’t try things like jnbpack ‐o stuff.dat
../file.c because it will add "../file.c" as the filename in
the packfile, which won’t work.

     jnbunpack level.dat
will unpack it in the current directory.

     With gobpack you can convert .gob files (which are
sprites, described in gob.txt) into .pcx files which you can









                             ‐3‐


edit with gimp for example, then convert back to a .gob and
use it in your own level.

     gobpack ‐u font menu.pcx

     will unpack font.gob using the color palette from
menu.pcx and write the files font.pcx font.txt. The other
gob files should use level.pcx for the correct palette.

     gobpack font

     will generate font.gob from font.pcx and the
specifications in font.txt.  The .pcx files should be
resaved with another program, as they are not packed and are
thus very large.
