Angrybirds – Custom Levels
The game is already being downloaded 6 times more than the original sales of the same game on the iPhone. The first world of Angrybirds is free as I mentioned in my first review of the game here.
Most of you may also know that there was an issue with the release of the level pack on Ovi store, which allowed users to directly download the Level pack from their N900′s without having to pay.
Rovio promtly removed the pack, and now most people are left waiting to part with their £3 pounds so that they may enjoy more awesome levels for this graphically beautiful game.
Fear not my little friends because a few of us over at Maemo.org have started a thread for a Level editor. Another great thing is that @Miika over at Maemo.org is also an employee of Rovio and has been good enough to get us clearance to create our own levels and begin work on a level editor, head over and see how things are getting on.
I’ve also added a post to Maemo-freak here.
Quote from @Miika
First of all, wow! We anticipated requests for level editor but didn’t quite expect the users to put effort to reverse engineer their own. It’s very nice to see the level of interest Angry Birds has received from the Maemo community.
As for any possible legal issues no worries, go for it!
So while the level editor is being worked on, myself and @cgarvie have created some levels for you to spent your time on.
I must say that all credit goes to @cgarvie, for all his help on teaching us how to make levels and edit files etc.
He has now release a level pack of 10 custom levels:
up and over (@cgarvie) 3 little pigs (@cgarvie)
through the wall (@cgarvie) mind the steps (@stobbsc)
drop (@cgarvie) pyramid (@cgarvie)
oh piggy where art thou (@cgarvie) bounce left right (@stobbsc)
roll over miss piggy (@cgarvie) birdhouse of my soul (@cgarvie)
There is a video below of the levels in action:
Here are the instructions of how you can go ahead and install these levels:
First you need to download the attached file:HERE
You can either use WinRAR to extra the file on your PC or Type the following in your N900 terminal if you download it directly to your device:
tar xfz /home/user/MyDocs/cag_level_pack.tar.gz
This will extra a mypack folder. Copy this folder to the internal memory of the N900 if you unpacked in windows.
Then open X-Terminal (you will need rootsh) on the N900 an type in the following:
cp /home/user/MyDocs/mypack/* -R /home/opt/rovio/angrybirds/data/levels/pack2
So a big thanks to everyone over at Maemo.org and to Rovio. now lets get playing.
