Problems downloading levels
« on: June 06, 2012, 03:02:49 PM »
I tried to download a level from this forum, but when I double-clicked the VVVVVV file it said that it wasn't found any app that could open the file. It asked me to select an app, and I selected VVVVVV. After it opened, I didn't see the level in the list!
Notes: I use a Mac, VVVVVV 2.0, the level was Scripting Tutorial (made by PJBottomz) and the download was a zip file with the level.
So, how do I download levels? Is this a glitch?

This is how you do it.

Find the VVVVVV directory (should be in your "home" directory, I don't know what it's called in Mac). Here, you might find a .vvvvvv or VVVVVV directory.

For some reason, the structure is different on linux vs windows, but if you see a "levels" directory, this is where you place the .vvvvvv file. Otherwise (if there is a "Saves" directory), just place it in the VVVVVV directory.

If you have 2.1, you can use the "open level folder" menu option at player levels - this will reveal where you should place the .vvvvvv file!

So that's how you do it. There should be instructions for this!
For those who use a Mac, the VVVVVV directory folder is (your home folder)/Documents/VVVVVV
