There are two ways.

1. You can edit your level with a text editor.  Near the end of the file, you will find a series of lines that look like this:
Code: [Select]
<edLevelClass tileset="3" tilecol="3" platx1="0" platy1="0" platx2="320" platy2="240" platv="4" enemyx1="0" enemyy1="0" enemyx2="320" enemyy2="240" enemytype="2" directmode="1" warpdir="1">The Traffic Lights Turn Blue Tomorrow</edLevelClass>Each of these corresponds to one room of your level. 
In the above example, this is a blue room using the Warp Zone tileset (tileset="3" tilecol="3").  The Polar Dimension uses this tileset, too.  Change the value of tilecol to "6" for each room you want to have the grey warp background.

2. Or you can use Ved.

if it wasn't obvious you can identify which room it belongs to by the roomname

Slight problem: I don't know how to edit my level with a text editor. How do I do that?

notepad++ lets you edit any files as text, sublime text probably does as well but i've never used it

You can edit VVVVVV files with regular Notepad just fine, just right-click the level file and go Open With - > Notepad.

i would also recommend using the "find" function to search for the roomname

He said in another topic that he could download it after all, I think.

it's really inconvenient when problems are presented and fixed in separate topics
