    The Acekard 2i has known issues with reading corrupted headers. Try using a fixed vesion of the editor, or hex the ROM to shove the new data forward and restore the old header data.

    The level finally loaded on my emulator but the background is black, it's too static and i can't play my level. What do I do? It would be a huge help. Ty and it also freezes.. what do we do?

    Which version of NSMBe did you use?
    Latest one are always available here: http://nsmbhd.net/builds.php

    Did you change some level settings that could have caused this? Do you have the views and entrances properly set up?

    Well, the most common causes of black screen are:

    - Red sprites -> Change the sprite sets
    - Crash sprites (Sprite 0, 1, 2...) -> Remove them.
    - Starting entrance number wrong -> Check that in Level Config, the starting entrance ID actually points to an existing entrance.
    - Starting entrance wrong -> Select your starting entrance and check that all it's options are correct. View number, etc.
    - Changing a background ID from something to None or None to something -> This was a bug in NSMBe 5.1. Grab the latest version, open level config, Click OK, and save.

    If you still can't get it to work, post some screenshots of the level itself, and the entrance, view and level settings.

    Huh, no idea. Maybe something's corrupted. Try to export the level and the tilesets you edited and import them into a clean ROM and see if the problem is still there.

    And use the latest version! :D

    Huh, what? :P
    Not sure what you mean, but you've probably imported/exported the areas wrong :P

    Yup and you are 100% RIGHT!
    Yup! You are absolutely right! I made a fresh new level, that looks way better then what I showed you.

    The name of my full game is called Epic Mario Bros. DS I used the new version, they both work! I love you Dirbaio!
