Description

A (largely stable) alternative level editor to JCS. MLLE offers various options that JCS does not, such as JJ2+ support (particularly infinite layers and tilesets per level, palette editing, and redrawable tiles/masks), fill and rectangle drawing tools, longer text strings, an integrated layer edit/parallax view screen, more useful parameter fields for many events, more complex tile selection options, a redo buffer, better layer resizing, and support for every single related game (1.23, 1.24, Battery Check, 1.10o, 1.00g/h, and Animaniacs: A Gigantic Adventure) (for the latter two, this is the only program of any kind that exists for editing them).

Please see Changelog.txt for latest changes/fixes. If you already have a previous release of MLLE installed, you should not re-extract MLLE.ini, for risk of losing your personal settings.

There’s no help file, because help files are hard, but here are some hotkeys:
1-8: View that layer.
Ctrl + 1-8: Edit layer properties for that layer.
Ctrl + plus/minus: Zoom in/out.
Ctrl + M: Toggle mask mode.
M: View partial mask.
Ctrl + P: Toggle parallax mode.
P: View partial parallax.
Ctrl + V: Toggle event view.
Ctrl + Shift + R: Save & Run, with the start position temporarily moved to wherever your mouse is.
F, Backspace, E, Ctrl + E, Shift + E: You know how these things work.
I: Flip tiles vertically (available only for JJ2+ levels)
Comma: Copy current tile.
Shift + Comma: Copy current tile and the event on it.
B: Begin or end a selection of tiles to grab.
Delete: Clear layer/selection.
Ctrl + C: Copy current selection.
Ctrl + X: Copy and delete current selection.
Ctrl + D: Deselect all.
For editing tileset:
Shift + T: Assign tile transparent tiletype.
Shift + 0-9: Assign tile that tiletype, if possible. (e.g. 1 for Transparent and 4 for Caption in regular JJ2 levels.)
Additionally, holding down the Control key while using either of the first two drawing tools (Paintbrush and Fill) triggers an alternate mode wherein they work somewhat differently. The Control key also serves as an eyedropper tool when you are redrawing tile images in JJ2+ levels.

[I don’t think you quite understand. Original rating 5.5. ~cooba]

Recommendedcooba rated 9.0

Lots of cool stuff that I’ve always wanted to see in JCS ever since I started using it (12 years and counting).

EDIT: Removed what was a bit too harsh.

RecommendedLark rated 10.0

lol people are silly yellin’ on the internet and all. anyway, great job buddy your contributions are great. i dont get how to use this thing to its full extent, nor do i think im gonna find out given that my time with jcs is short aka no time with jcs, or mlle i should say.

RecommendedSaVn rated 7.9

Beautiful level editor! I will use this to make a level, you see the layout of the level, events covered and not covered by foregruond BG.

BUGS: In text Srings, if I put the “ยง”, the level crashes.

Final score: almost 8! Download reccomended !!!!!!!

RecommendedJelly Jam rated 10.0

Way easier to use than JCS and the features are more than useful.

Darkhog rated N/A

Constant crashes, can’t even render parallax (at first I’ve thought it would be displayed in the main window as there seems to be no parallax window, but it does nothing and parallax doesn’t show. Also, it shows this on startup: https://pastebin.com/NsMEg69k

Well the editor does not bring almost anything new. JCS is also multi-layered editor and viewer, and you can use AS for long text strings.
You don’t need MS-paint-ish “fill” when you have “b” copy button in JCS.
There is better UI for Jazz 2 events. But I guess nobody really needed this also, we have learned to work what we were given, standard JCS event UI.

The new thing is shortcuts? I (and I guess, most of JCS users) never needed shortcuts.

BTW: The nice thingy is to view Battery Check and Animaniacs level files, but it won’t improve my rating, since these games are so much underground that nobody except Jazz 2 online article readers ever heard of them.


Sorry, I was expecting something more, maybe more layered JCS (more than 8 layers) ? Or placing events in different layers? Using multiple tilesets in the same level? This is little disappointing, compared to what all good have you done with JJ2+.

EDIT: Disregards the absurd review above me. (how about little bit of tolerance, Cooba? You are calling my reviews absurd for no reason, it is just my goddamn opinion!)

(Response from Violet: None of the things you ask for are technically possible. Have a nice day! Also, ack, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to remove the rating… it looks like J2O got broken somehow that makes not removing the rating impossible. Please feel free to put it back if you can, and I’ll ask Stijn abotu this.)

NEW REPLY:
Oh okay, I did not give bad rating because it did not have those impossible features (and everyone thinks I did because of this, I wonder why), I gave bad rating because of reasons mentioned above.
So to make review acceptable for you, I crossed out the part where I am asking for these features.

It was nice from cooba to remove his disrespectful phrase from his review, and I wonder why he wrote that stuff as an “admin note”, when it is only this-review related.

Thanks TreyLina, 2 another people have told me this already, you are happily third. Anyone else wants to tell MilloCz about this?
