       There are two programs to help you make your own levels: jnbpack and jnbunpack.

       jnbpack -o /tmp/newlevel.dat <file1> <file2> <file3> etc

       or you can just put all the files in a dir, cd to that dir and do

       jnbpack -o /tmp/newlevel.dat *

       and it will put all the files in the current dir inside the packfile.   Don't  try  things
       like jnbpack -o stuff.dat ../file.c because it will add "../file.c" as the filename in the
       packfile, which won't work.

       jnbunpack level.dat
       will unpack it in the current directory.

       With gobpack you can convert .gob files (which are sprites,  described  in  gob.txt)  into
       .pcx  files  which you can edit with gimp for example, then convert back to a .gob and use
       it in your own level.

       gobpack -u font menu.pcx

       will unpack font.gob using the color palette from menu.pcx and write  the  files  font.pcx
       font.txt. The other gob files should use level.pcx for the correct palette.

       gobpack font

       will  generate  font.gob from font.pcx and the specifications in font.txt.  The .pcx files
       should be resaved with another program, as they are not packed and are thus very large.
