Its Friday! and what better way to spend a Friday then to burn away the hours making levels for super meat boy? the answer to that is there is no better way to spend a Friday, that's why last night i recorded over an hour of in depth video tutorials on how to use this magical editor.
But first, lets break down how to launch the editor.
1. Launch Steam, and click Library.
2. Click All Games, then select Tools from the drop down menu.
3. Find Super Meat Boy Editor in your Tools list and launch it (1mb download) and you're ready to make your first shit level!
Now on to the tutorials.
Take note that when i recorded these i didn't realize my mic stand was touching my damn keyboard, so it also recorded me pounding away at the keys while i talk.. its a bit annoying but there was no way i was going to rerecord the full hour of video again.
These 6 videos go through basically everything you'll need to start making your own levels. the only thing missing is mini tutorals for each individual objects per chapter, but im sure you figure those out yourself, or just check out our forums for any unanswered questions you might have.
We will be doing a semi big update next week that will fix a few editor bugs and add a few small features to SMW (like the Unknown), so be on the look out for that.
