It is possible to edit maps by editing the map's XML. An up-to-date page can be found here.

XML Parts[]

C (CarteXML)[]

The C (CarteXML) is a root element containing all information about the map.

P (ParamXML)[]

Map Options
Property Values Description
G Wind: -500 to 500 and Gravity: -50 to 50 Two numbers. The first is for the wind and the second is gravity.

Negative wind blows to the left and positive to the right. Default gravity is 10, default wind is 0. If there is no G attribute in the P tag the gravity and wind are set to default.

DS Optional. Multiple mice spawns.

Using the optional DS tag it is possible to add multiple places where mice spawn. Syntax: DS="m;x1,y1,x2,y2" where x1 and y1 are the coordinates of the first spawn, x2 and y2 the second. More than two mice spawns is also possible.

H 0 to 800 Map Height.

Using H the height of the map can be set. If omitted, map height will be 400px. Values lower than 400 may cause problems.

L 0 to 1600 Map Length.

Using L the length of the map can be set. If omitted, map width will be 800px. Values lower than 800 may cause problems. Defilante maps have a maximum width of 4800 instead of 1600.

Ca Missing or not Offscreen Hiding Function

If the Ca attribute is in the P tag you won't be able to see anything outside the standard game area.

C Missing or not Collision.

If there is a C attribute in the P tag collisions between mice are turned on, otherwise they are turned off.

N Missing or not Nightmode.

If there is an N attribute in the P tag nightmode is turned on, otherwise it is turned off.

A Missing or not Soulmate.

If there is an A attribute in the P tag mice have a soulmate (there is a string that attaches mice together), otherwise they don't.

F See table below. Background.

A number from the list.

P Missing or not Portals.

Whether or not shaman can spawn portals.

aie Missing or not Fall damage.

dodue Missing or not Dodue
shaman_tools 0 to 65536 Choose which items the shaman has access to. <P shaman_tools="X,X,X" /> (X = ID of the shaman item)

Z (ZoneXML)[]

Z (ZoneXML) contains information about in-game elements.

S (SolXML)[]

S (SolXML) contains information about solid grounds used in map.

Visible map height is 400 and width is 800.

Ground properties can be separated into default properties and optional properties. The latter need to be added manually and cannot be added using the map editor.

Default properties
Property Description
L Length (Horizontal). 10 is min and 3000 is max
X The X coordinate (Horizontal) of the middle of the object
H Height (Vertical). 10 is min and 3000 max
Y The Y coordinate (Vertical) of the middle of the object
T Ground texture (See table below). Only changes the look
P Ground properties array (See table below)
Special properties
Property Description
m If m="" is added to a ground it will be invisible.
v The time in ms after which a ground is despawned.
o Set ground color (only works with rectangles or circles)
Ground textures
Id Description Notes
0 Wood -
1 Ice -
2 Trampoline -
3 Lava -
4 Chocolate -
5 Earth -
6 Grass -
7 Sand -
8 Cloud -
9 Water Cannot be dynamic or rotated.
10 Stone -
11 Snow -
12 Color Has no texture, but instead can be recolored.
13 Circle The only non-rectangle. Has no texture, but can be recolored.
14 Invisible Hidden from options, can only be added in XML editing
15 Web Sticky, covered with webs and can only be added in XML editing
Property array
# Property Values Description
1 Dynamic flag Boolean (0 or 1) Movable or Not
2 Mass Float Higher equals harder to move
3 Friction Float 0 for Ice or more to make it harder to run. Solid ground with invalid friction sends objects and mice to the top-left corner on impact. After anything hits the invalid-friction ground, gravity continues to increase until all mice fall through the floor.
4 Restitution Float Bounciness (1.2 is Trampoline and 20 is Lava)
5 Rotation Integer 360 Degree positive or negative
6 FixedRotation Boolean (0 or 1) When on it will keep whatever rotation was put for 5
7 LinearDamping Float The higher this is the slower a Dynamic ground will fall. 30 will stop if not touched and any higher makes no change
8 AngularDamping Float 0 means it will spin very easily after touched. 10 seems to be max in that it will only rotate as long as a Mouse is pushing on a side

D (ObjetSourisXML)[]

D (ObjetSourisXML) contains information about start positions and vital objects.

Ice Ground (Light Purple)

Description Example/Screenshot
The minimum space between objects for a mouse to be able to walk is 30. Y1 and H1 are from the higher object and Y2 and H2 are from the lower object.

( Y1 - ( H1 / 2 ) ) - ( Y2 + ( H2 /2 ) ) >= 30

When a fake balloon is added (Types 29-31) balloons cannot be attached to mice

Unattachable Ballon

Map is invalid but doesn't catch it

Click Reset to get the Load button back and start from scratch. Can happen if a value isn't correct or if there is an attribute missing (i.e. <O P="0" X="100" C="1" /> no Y)
Notice: It IS possible to load map without a load button by pressing Enter in map load editbox.
