So could anybody help create levels for me? I just want some cool levels... Maybe with deathtraps and stuff.

Ah, I'll give it a go later :D Also, it stores each pixel the same way the TI calculators do where 1 byte is 8 pixels. It is more precisely .125 bytes per pixel :) I am glad this method is working so well for you, too :D Would you be able to show us a level in action by any chance?

EDIT: Time for class, but it is looking okay already :)
EDIT2: Apparently, I cannot go to class today D:

EDIT3: I could not stay focused long enough to finish !_! Still, this should give people an idea of how secret passages and whatnot could work :) Just make sure that you are drawing the player, then the region on top of the sprite in case of secret tunnels :D

O.O
Wow, that is really good!! Thanks so much! I like how you use the grayscale and smooth platforms. You are actually quite good at this! I
About showing a level in action-
I can't really show you using a program called NXTScreen because it looks real bad and doesn't have grayscale, so I might have to post a .mov of a video of me showing it.

Thanks :) And that is fine, I was just wondering if it was possible :) Also, when i made the secret tunnel, I was thinking of games like Mario or Metroid where you can go through certain walls and you cannot see the player all the time. Pretty much, the way you can do it:

Draw the player and then draw any ON pixels on the map over it. If the pixels on the map are off, just don't change it :) Then when you move, you will need to restore it. I don't know if that will slow things down, though :/

Yeah. I can OR the level picture to only draw the on pixels. And that works!!! :D
These levels are for the game I had bugs with earlier. :)

EDIT: You can see in my limitations of pxl-test platformer post.

Ah, I see. Did you use turiq's map for the example you showed there of the bug?

Cool, thanks!
Anybody else? :P
(Im so impatient, but so excited)

EDIT: Actually OR-ing doesn't seem to work... :(

EDIT2: Xeda, I'm trying out your level on my NXT. I like how when you have to jump up the thick platforms on the left, it is more of a challenge because the top of the player might bump the platform above and fall down. :)

EDIT3: I think I know why OR-ing it isn't working. It is because of the grayscale. Since when I am in the secret passage, dark gray is 2/3 black pixels, and 1/3 white pixels. Those 1/3 white pixels are still being displayed because they are white, and underneath them is the black 3x3 player.

So does anybody else want to make some really cool levels (that are challenging)? Also you can put a flag or something to represent the end of the level.

Ah, I see, yeah, I forgot that grayscale part :P You can OR the different layers together, then, maybe? (like the darker layer of the sprite and background and then the lighter layer of both). I don't know if that would work at all...
