An all-in-one standalone tool for installing custom Marble Blast levels - no more readmes, no more tedious browsing through directories and mission files. Select a .zip file, and the program will search it for mission files and their associated interiors, textures, etc. copying them all to their proper destinations. If you're missing any interiors, the program will tell you.
As of version 1.1, the program also doubles as a custom level bundler. Simply select one of your in-game mission files, and the program will automatically compile the level and all of its interiors, textures, etc. into a .zip file that can instantly be shared online and installed by others. The quickest way to get your new custom levels published and played!
I made this tool cause I thought it would be a nice way to reduce what has always seemed to me like a significant overhead for new players who want to try out playing/making custom levels. It uses my old Python level editing library, which I refurbished and gave the name
to look into each mission file and see exactly which assets are required.
Hope you find this useful

Haven't tested this out myself yet but god this seems SO useful. Installation has always been the main turnoff for me playing customs. This should hopefully help me a lot. hPerks out here improving the community once again.

Along with interiors, the program now also finds and installs shapes, skies, and soundtracks, notifying you if any are missing.
When importing an interior or shape, the program looks for any texture files in the directory that it uses, and installs them as well.
Instead of a source directory to install from, the program now asks for a .zip file, which is how custom levels and packs are almost always downloaded.
Errors in text decoding are now handled more gracefully.
Additionally, the program now contains a level bundler feature as a counterpart to the installer. With the bundler, simply select one of your in-game mission files, and the program will automatically compile the level and all of its interiors, textures, etc. into a .zip file that can instantly be shared online and installed by others. The quickest way to get your new custom levels published and played!
