VVVVVV / External VVVVVV Tools
« on: August 02, 2011, 08:36:16 PM »
I've been playing around with V's level editor (which I absolutely love by the way), but there's a few things I've noticed which were missing from the editor.  Hopefully they'll be added eventually, making this completely redundant, but for the time being, I spent a little bit of time today knocking together a quick program.   It was written mostly for myself but I figured I'd share them just in case anyone else finds a use for them.

First up's the ability to render out files as an image.  For example, here's Notch's 4vvvv:



Secondly is the ability to move, copy and swap rooms around.



To use these programs just drag and drop the the .vvvvvv file onto the appropriate .exe file.  There is Renderer.exe for the map renderer, and RoomMover.exe for the room mover tool.  Alternatively you can access it through the command line as shown in the screenshot above.

Also, use at your own risk.  I've checked for bugs quite thoroughly, but I still recommend keeping backups of your vvvvvv levels before editing them using the room mover.

One last thing, if posting custom tools is against the rules let me know and I'll happily remove this.

Feel free to download it here:  http://dl.dropbox.com/u/956557/VTools.rar

Anyway! I hope this helps a few people get some levels up. I've played all the ones that came with the game, and a few of the newly made ones, and its great to see custom content for VVVVVV being made.  Oh and the full source code is in there too, in case anyone's interested.

EDIT - 5th August 2011
I've updated the renderer to update the colours correctly. As terry suggested down there, I wasn't using the second tilesheet, only the first one. Thanks for the help there.
