This sure proofs why the n900 lacks good content. If i were a develloper and read this, i wouldnt even try to make a game anymore. everything is hacked and cracked or modified! games that come out is no match for you guys to hack in and play it for free.

This sure is the down side with the open source platform! You guys are clearly ruining the payed apps platform! big game developers like EA Dont like these things, and am quit sure there wont be any games from them if you guys keep screwing around with copyrighted game files

As for any possible legal issues no worries, go for it!

On the other hand, we do have had discussions about our own level editor too but no concrete plans have been made yet. And because of that unfortunately I can't promise you any support currently.

If you have any suggestions regarding the level editor or Angry Birds in general we're all ears.

How can I use your custom level as theme2 instead of theme1 levels when I don't have the level pack installed?
Thanks
ok you need to download the attachment untar it

tar xzf cag_level_pack.tar
this will create a mypack directory

mkdir a pack2 dir
in
/home/opt/rovio/angrybirds/data/levels


copy all files in mypack to this pack2 directory
i think this should give you my 3 levels in the level 2 stuff


***** this will create info for level 2 ******
so it means you wil have unlocked and have highscores for the real level 2 stuff WHEN you buy the expansion pack



EDIT And if some one does get it working can you at least confirm that for me

Ok again in case anyones interested
here a template file. TO be used with Empty file earlier.

cut and paste each object as many times as you like, and fill in the ?? fields

remeber + is to the right in X direcrion
and + is DOWN in the Y direction, so nearly all Y co-ords are -ve


for the Empty file
Put your first bird about x =-15 y = -0.2

and all your structure about x = 40 + ish


spritepivot defines the size of blocks. so you know there relative size.

angle defines orientation of the object blocks are horizontal for 0 or 3 and vertical for 1.5 or -1.5

definition field defines the object,
and none of the Sprite values seem to have any effect, nor does levelGoal seem to have any effect.

UPDATE
In fact changing the definition block of the light, wood , stone type
changed the block stats, so it looks quite easy to swap block types.
just need to change 1 field

I tested this by putting a light plock up and threw red birds at it
light clock - 1 hit
wood and stone - 2 hits (but i think the wooden ones can hit the edge where as stom might need more middle hits)


UPDATE 2
The object x,y co0ord is to the middle of the object (i was assuming bottom left DOH)

For static block 04. the x and y should be +- 4.5 to be flush

medium pig should be +y 1.9 to sit on top of an object.

Umm. If so, then they definitely shouldn't be making games for PC, XBOX360, Wii, NDS, PSP etc as they are all hacked/cracked and all games can be had for free if you try.

@jakiman, you are obviously missing the point here! The n900 has a terrible lineup for games and apps at the moment. the ovistore is near emty. apps like ovi maps are far from finished. And finaly a nice game comes out. and within a few weeks people find a way to free download the extra level packs and start cracking the code for making own levels. Result: Extra level pack has been removed from the store and not be returned since.

And you think all this is funny! If you want this to work then everyone should stop screwn around with other peoples software!

And for the game consoles, there are always enough people that buy the games. Or to ban accounts for elegal copies.

Companies must see an advantage in the n900 before they even try to make apps, games. If they read all this i dont think they are really motivated knowing that within a couple of days people started making their own maps not needing to buy the extra level pack.

And maybe you buy the pack but allot of people who read this wont!

You still didn't read the complete thread did you?

The extra pack was removed because there's a bug in Ovi store that allows people to downnload stuff without paying for it.

And the developer of the game clearly stated that he likes that the community creates extra levels.

Stop whining.
