Title: Spelunky Deathmatch Arena Editor (PC)
Post by: JaSp on September 12, 2013, 12:06:27 PM
Hey there,

As I mentioned in another thread, I've been working on a simple editor to change the Deathmatch Arenas in Spelunky. I haven't had enough time to make something polished, but the current version should work fine nonetheless.

(http://assets.jeanmoreno.com/misc/SpelunkyArenaEditor_1.png)

This editor will directly modify Spelunky.exe and the english localization file. I take no responsibility in whatever could happen because of this!

To save a level, make sure to hit "Save Level", and then when you have changed all the levels you wanted to change, hit "Apply to Spelunky.exe"!
Usage is pretty straightforward: left click to draw the selected tile, right click to erase.
You can also save levels to .lvl files and thus easily share them. They have to be in the 'Levels' folder for the program to be able to load them.

The editor has been made with Unity, which is clearly not designed to create such tools; that's why the interface is ugly, and that you have to manually set the path to Spelunky.exe (I couldn't create any menu for the application!). It also explains why such a simple tool is around 18 Mb uncompressed!

DOWNLOAD HERE (http://download.jeanmoreno.com/file/SpelunkyHD%20Arena%20Editor.7z) (~5 Mb)

Have fun!  :)

Also the DLC files are still there but you can't play them in the regular game (through normal means), what is up with that?
Why only the characters? the DLC deathmatch arena ones look pretty cool :c

Wow! Looks neat! Too bad it's only for Deathmatch stages, but that is alright! Now, who would create Bomberman stages here?

Don't know if it is happening to someone else...

But the download is stopping at 5.1MB, every single time. :-\ :(

@Blaze06h: I tried to download it and it worked. Try this link (http://download.jeanmoreno.com/files/SpelunkyHD%20Arena%20Editor.7z) maybe?
Else I'm not sure why it would do that...

@Subscriber01236: What do you mean about the DLC arenas? They do appear in my version of Spelunky.


By the way, I've only tested it with the Steam version but it should work with other versions as well. Can someone confirm this please?

Strange... it does 5.1 MB in seconds, but then it stops with 0 kb/s!

If you don't mind... can you upload it in some other place.
BTW, that's (http://download.jeanmoreno.com/files/SpelunkyHD%20Arena%20Editor.7z) the link I used.

Edit: Forget whatever I said before, I tried downloading it again and it took me 0 second! Since I already downloaded it so many times, my browser automatically saved the file up to the amount I already downloaded i.e. 5.1, then it just downloaded the rest 0.1 MB. So, problem fixed! :)

Great work!

Have you looked into where the other pre-defined levels are (adventure lobby and tutorial stages)? It could be fun to edit those as well.


Title: Re: Spelunky Deathmatch Arena Editor (PC)

By golly it works! Very impressive. Although it makes me long for a full scale level editor even more.

I haven't found the predefined ones but I did manage to edit the generated levels directly with an hexadecimal editor; but a proper editor for this would take time because we would need to reverse-engineer the whole level format, find exactly how the procedural rooms are laid out, and see if it wouldn't interfere with the daily challenge to prevent cheating.

While we wouldn't be able to choose which rooms would randomly get selected (i.e. create custom-made levels), we could theoretically edit these rooms to alter the game (make it easier, harder, or just different for example).

Sacrifices are us.

Now you've just broken the game (literally).

I think I know why it broke:

It tried sacrificing the last player, but the game got confused on who the favor is for, since all the other players are dead.

So it crashed.

I had assumed favor was shared between everyone. Im pretty sure it works that way in multiplayer.

Deathmatch isn't multiplayer mode.

Besides, it was never intended for everyone to get sacrificed to alters in deathmatch in the first place, which is why the game got confused and crashed.

Why that? If all people get sacrificed, it'll be a tie. Favor is not stored under a certain player, it's an universal number.

Because the programmers didn't intend for the alters to be spammed like that. :P

True, but you said something else in the previous post...


Title: Re: Spelunky Deathmatch Arena Editor (PC)
Post by: KarjamP on January 20, 2014, 11:47:39 AM
Because of both. :P

The fact that the game got confused in the first place is proof that this isn't something the developers anticipated.

I've been messing around trying to find a way to break 2 alters to get a ball and chain for everyone at the start but unfortunately it seems you can't get 2 bad favors on the same arena just like you can't on the same level in the regular game. :-\

Shame.  :'(

That would be a fun deathmatch.

I found a way to make the side wall disappear
I'm pretty sure it has to do with the unbreakable blocks I placed at the left.
Also I somehow made a level completely dark. Again probably because it was mostly unbreakable blocks.

One question though,

What do you open this with?
