    I am going to teach you how to make levels for speedrun:

    What do you need:
    - GLIPSgraffiti. (http://glipssvgeditor.sourceforge.net/)(Multi platform)
    - The template svg (http://speedrun.st/level-packs/level-template.zip)
    - A iPod touch/iPhone
    - Software to browse your ipod/iphone (SSH, Iphone drive, Disk Aid)
    - A little bit creativity to make levels

    1: Design them
    Open GLIPS SVG editor
    You will see a window like this:

    - Unzip the level template to the desktop.
    - Go back to GLIPS and do: file > open > desktop > level-template.svg > open
    Now you see this:

    Now you can start making your levels
    Colors:

    green circle - start position
    red circle - checkpoint
    black circle - hole

    A box is a wall
    And you can use the pen tool to draw walls.

    My Level after drawing:

    2: Save them
    To use your levels in SpeedRun you must save them in a special way.
    - First, create a folder on your desktop with the name of your level pack... something like 'Hard Levels 1337 BETA' inside that folder make some subfolder with the level names... something like 'Level 01' or 'ROFL thats simple'.

    - Now do: file > save and save your level in 'desktop > [LEVEL PACK NAME] > [LEVEL NAME] > level.svg'.

    MAKE SURE YOU SAVE IT AS 'level.svg' WITHOUT CAPITALS.
    (NO: Level.svg or LeVeL.svg)

    So you get something like this:

    3: Use them
    - SSH in your ipod/iphone (Dont ask how)
    - Browse to:
    var > mobile > media > speedrun

    You will see this 2 level packs already inside:

    i know your're from the nederlands and all that, but i just thought i would correct a little grammatical error. At the top of the thread, instead of "I am going to learn you how to make levels for speedrun:"

    write

    I am going to teach you how to make levels for speedrun"
