(crude way)
you can always rename the file *.mid  ;D though, it's not very compatible most of the time...

I tried that and nothing changed. It stayed exactly the same, apart from the fact it had a different name.

OK, I've just started to make file sizes smaller.  :D I changed pictures from BMP to JPEG and now my game doesn't work.   :'(  It's looking for tilesets with .BMP extension. I could always just change them back to BMP but that adds about 9MB to the total file size. I'm sure people would prefer a quick download to a slow one.  ;) Does anyone have an idea that could make SGDK look for JPEG instead of BMP?   ???

Open the GDP file innotepad and change the ".BMP"s to ".JPG"s.

Don't attach it to an email, but just send me an email requesting a place to upload your project.  I will reply with instructions on uploading the project to an FTP server.  How familiar are you with FTP?

Also, if you don't get an email reply from me within a couple days, post a follow-up here to check that I got it.  Some people email me at the wrong address or their email doesn't get through for whatever reason, but I ususally check my email twice a day and should be able to reply pretty quickly (except on some weekends when I'm out of town).

Has anyone found the secret level? I don't think anyone will ever find it, there's a hint in the README file.
Comments and questions are welcome, just send to my E-mail address by clicking on the picture of an envelope. Or there's a link on my site for E-mails. The web address is at the bottom of this message.

Thanks for the feedback. The full version is finished, it just doesn't have a very good ending and seems unfinished. I got so sick of making it and I knew if I didn't stop on level 7 I would never finish.

I sent Platformania in to download.com about a month ago. I got an E-mail 3 days ago saying it is active on download.com. In those 3 days, My sites hits doubled and there has been 168 downloads from download.com so now the total downloads is 237. Have a look for yourself.



I was amazed when I saw this. 168 downloads in 3 days. This is crazy!
