There are two programs in /usr/lib/jumpnbump to help you make your own
levels: pack and unpack.
/usr/lib/jumpnbump/pack -o /tmp/newlevel.dat <file1> <file2>
or you can just put all the files in a dir, cd to that dir and
/usr/lib/jumpnbump/pack -o /tmp/newlevel.dat *
and it will put all the files in the current dir inside the
packfile. Don’t try things like pack -o stuff.dat ../file.c
because it will add ../file.c as the filename in the packfile,
which won’t work.
will unpack it in the current directory.
With gobpack you can convert .gob files (which are sprites,
described in /usr/share/doc/jumpnbump/gob.txt) into .pcx files
which you can edit with The Gimp for example, then convert back
to a .gob and use it in your own level.
/usr/lib/jumpnbump/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.
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.
