Ummm....
Well, size-wise, it takes up around 9.7 kilobytes for the big level, since it has to have 3 pictures for 4-lvl grayscale. The other two solid and kill pictures take up around 3.2 kilobytes (I'm talking about a 200x128 pixel level).

methinks that 200*128 should be about right for level sizes... not too big and not too small ;)

and I'll get to work on another level as soon as I have the time.

I would want to, but I need to work on my exams and I know that would probably steal a lot of my time.
I hope there are others who can help.

Hmm will levels that are 200x128 even fit in 105 KB of memory? O.O 200x128=25600, so you can't even fit more than 3 levels... ???
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

... Wow. O.O
Well actually, each level (If 200x128) takes up about 16.1 Kilobytes. But of course, some levels will be smaller, and some bigger.

If all levels were 200x128, I could fit in about 6 levels.

EDIT: So each pixel in the picture takes up about 0.126 bytes.

Ah, thats better then . Do you use some form of compression such as half byte?

Compression? I have no idea...
But it is cool because the NXT uses .ric as a picture. There are some easy-to-use .ric editors out there. The file can actually get pretty advanced. It can have all sorts of stuff like varmaps, different copybits, etc.

I see, I don't know what are those lol, so I would need to go check when I get some time.

Ok. Well it's probably hard to check using an iPod/playstation 3. :P
So hopefully some people can help make levels.
