Betaworld is out now! I pretty much only made the music; most of the level's content was made by Betaworld Team (you might know her as Chara, who was banned awhile ago so I'm uploading it for her here). Her description:

"This is the sequel to Unshackled, by Alek Fleischer.
I created it because after playing Deltarune, I figured, 'What if Terry created a sequel to his game?'
This doesn't mean I won't be making a chapter 2, because I will. But chapter one is the joke. Chapter two, we're gonna get much more serious."

WARNING: This contains spoilers about Deltarune and Unshackled. If you have not played Deltarune or Unshackled, I strongly recommend that you play those levels.

It's a level about challenge and what, if anything, that means.

Code: [Select]
Changelog

1.1
* Full release
* Fixed trinket count being displayed as zero instead of six
* Fixed double fadeout at the end

VVVVVV Levels / Unshackled [V1.4] + soundtrack
« on: December 24, 2017, 09:27:03 PM »

the universe is unraveling.
i try to answer.


download.

soundtrack.

Installation:
Note: This level requires VVVVVV version 2.2 or later.
  • Place Unshackled 1.4.vvvvvv into Documents/VVVVVV/levels.
  • Place the other files and folders from the archive into Documents/VVVVVV, next to levels. If you have custom asset files there already (such as the MMMMMM mod file or a custom texture pack), move them elsewhere first.
Also, make sure that in "Game Settings" the soundtrack is set to PPPPPP, otherwise music won't play.

Changelog:

v1.4
* Victoria's room in the ship now matches its damaged state at the end of VVVVVV
* Tweaked dialogue at the end of area 2
* Most dialogue in area 4 no longer halts the player
v1.3
(modifies tiles2.png)
* Fix crash in the Linux version of VVVVVV
v1.2
* Fix cutscene bars bug
v1.1
* Fix bug where empty spaces appear in map at start



This short level has been in development for a very long time. It was supposed to be a Halloween level, but was delayed a bit so it's ended up releasing at Christmas instead. Despite the tonal incongruity with the yuletide atmosphere, I hope you enjoy it.

VVVVVV Help / TUTORIAL: How to put custom music in VVVVVV
« on: January 17, 2016, 12:06:04 PM »
EDIT: Infoteddy recently put together a tutorial for adding multiple custom songs to VVVVVV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkD7Tkn1duc

The command he uses in the terminal to download the script is here for your copy and pasting pleasure:
Code: [Select]
wget http://78.72.124.73/fiq.zip
He glosses over a few things so I'd like to put together a tutorial here soon, but I figured I'd put this link here in the meantime.
If you'd prefer to use the old, somewhat simpler one-song method, read below.



Introduction
In VVVVVV 2.2, an asset modding feature was added that allows you to easily add custom tiles, sprites, and sound effects to your level. However, adding custom music is a bit trickier, because all of the game's music is stored in a single binary file. Unfortunately, people have only figured out how to replace one song: "Predestined Fate Remix", but this may change in the future.



Step 1: Set up your song file
VVVVVV only accepts music in the "Ogg Vorbis" file type, and music cannot have metadata (author, genre, etc). If your music already ends with the extension ".ogg" and lacks metadata you're all set. If not, there are programs online to convert your file to OGG and remove metadata.



Step 2: Get the binary file from VVVVVV's data
If you've modified tiles/sprites/sfx before, you probably already know how to do this. VVVVVV's data is stored in "data.zip", a compressed folder. data.zip is stored next to the executable in the Windows version. In the Mac version, it's stored in the app itself; right click and select "View Package Contents" to get at it. Decompress data.zip and copy vvvvvvmusic.vvv somewhere else.



Step 3: Open the file in a hex editor
The rest of the tutorial will involve working with a hex editor. Hex editors are used for directly editing a file's hex data, which is essentially an easier-to-read version of the binary code. There are a variety of hex editors available. My personal preference is Notepad++ with the hex editor plugin, but pretty much any hex editor will do. Hex editors look very intimidating (like you're staring into the Matrix!), but what we need to do is simple enough. Once you open the file, it should look something like this:





Step 4: Find the position of "Predestined Fate Remix" in the file
All 15 of the songs stored in this file are prefaced with the following string:
Code: [Select]
4F 67 67 53 00 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00This is the Vorbis header, and it tells programs that a file is an OGG file. vvvvvvmusic.vvv is mostly comprised of a bunch of OGG files stuck together. Use your editor's Find function (generally opened with Ctrl+F, or Cmd+F on Mac) and paste that string:



Use it to highlight the last instance of the Vorbis header:





Step 5: Delete "Predestined Fate Remix" from the file
Highlight from the start of the Vorbis header all the way to the end of the file:



Remember, that last Vorbis header should be deleted too. Like this:





Step 6: Copy the music you want
Open the .ogg file you want to put into the game with the hex editor. This time, select the entire file (usually Ctrl+A will do this, or Cmd+A on Mac). Notice that the Vorbis header is present here too. Copy your selection to the clipboard (Ctrl+C, or Cmd+C on Mac).





Step 7: Paste the music into the binary file

Go to the very end of the vvvvvvmusic.vvv file and append your song data (Ctrl+V, or Cmd+V on Mac).





Step 8: Fix music looping

If your music is shorter than Predestined Fate Remix, you can safely skip this step. However, if your music is longer, it will loop back to the beginning prematurely in-game. Fortunately, it turns out there's a way to fix this. At the beginning of vvvvvvmusic, there's a list of each song in the game. Find these bytes:



And change them to FF FF FF:



These bytes seem to indicate how long a song is, and FF FF FF is the highest possible value, so changing it this way should make it loop correctly. If it still loops too early, then it's possible your song is simply too long for VVVVVV to load.



You should now have a working music file you can add to your VVVVVV folder in Documents! Trigger it in your level with music(15a).



Why doesn't replacing songs other than Predestined Fate Remix work?

Replacing other songs causes glitching: stuff like looping many songs in a row. I suspect this has something to do with the bytes in Step 8, so if someone smarter than me could figure out exactly how length is stored in these three bytes, it could become possible to have multiple custom songs.



If you have any comments or questions, be sure to reply to this thread!

VVVVVV Help / Issue with enemies that don't kill me in Make and Play
« on: April 06, 2015, 08:09:54 AM »
In Make and Play Edition, I've run into an issue where enemies don't kill me. This occurs in every level, whether I test them from the editor or play them normally. Invincibility being on is ruled out, as spikes still kill me. I tried removing the config file and redownloading the application, but nothing's working. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

VVVVVV Levels / tOLP2 is now available to testers
« on: January 16, 2015, 07:49:54 PM »
Anyone who became a tester for tOLP2 can now obtain the level at tOLP forums. Unlike the testing phase in Dimension Open, we chose to make this available long before the level was complete in order to iron out issues as early as possible. We value your feedback and want to hear everything you have to say about the level. If you're a tester, go straight to tOLP forums and try the level out!

Please post comments on the level in the tester's forum, NOT here. This thread's only purpose is getting the word out to testers that may not frequent tOLP forums.

I created some maps for VVVVVV custom levels that are similar to the main game's minimap. It'd be a mess to show them without spoiler tags, so click here.

* Fixed a wallglitch between Static and Unwrapping the Wrapper
