I know of course how to download them from the game.
But I get a thumbnail when I download it from the the forums.
What should I do with this image?
No problem! I figured that out yesterday because I wanted to give a level to a friend to show them, but I didn't think it was worthy of putting on the BBS yet. And as it turns out, I needed to know where the levels got saved anyway, since you need to find those files to put them on the BBS.
Well, even though you already figured it out, this is still useful for other people who don't yet know how/where to find the level files.
I'd suggest making a shortcut to the folder somewhere you can easily access it. It can be a pain in the butt if you're frequently opening it up. =]
Personally, I just type %appdata% in "Run" in the start menu. Win7 has a search bar that works fine too. No idea what Vista has.
Anyway, %appdata% is a system variable that always takes you to your application data folder.
Not sure about this "Roaming" folder. I'm running WinXPpro on this machine. Probably slightly different on vista/7.
You will find "bbs_levels" and "my_levels" in the Voxatron folder.
Obviously, bbs_levels has all the levels you've played from the bbs while my_levels has your custom creations.
The thumbnails you download are more than thumbnails. They have level data encoded in the bottom of the image
