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
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.

be resaved with another program, as they are not packed and are thus very
