This Is a Guide Made By Xyrz, I Got As much of it as i could find, I COuldn't Manage to get the level codes part. But This Part i have is good. Thanks To Xyrz For This Guide, None of the credit goes to me.


Welcome to my Level Aesthetics Guide (LAG), I am writing this guide because I feel
that many lack the essentials skills of making good looking levels. I hope that this
guide will be beneficial to those who need help in this department.

As you know, I am Xyrz, pronounced "Zai-erz", that is the internet alias I use most
when interacting with others online. Here in the Super Mario Flash Community, I have
only been here since July of 2008, So I am fairly new (from when I posted this
guide), but I am well known now for my "Xyrz Reviews", but also I am a solid level
designer, with a good sense of how to make levels look nice. So with no further ado,
let's get this guide rolling.

I suggest that you have each headline and its content in a spoiler, to make reading everything easier.

Thanks. That website has tons of information on SMF. This guide is just one of the few things. I'll post the rest later.

Uh, ok. I didn't get permission, but I have an account on that website so I'll ask. For now, please delete it if it shouldn't be here. I'll save the guide in a notepad file or something, for if I guess permission and repost it.

In technicality i don't think he needs permission as long as he takes no credit, right? It's like using a photo?

Or is it like using a song?
Either way, I want us to write our own guides.
