      Update 5: Infinite Wisdom is here!   10/05/2017

        Hey everyone, We’re back with another update that really mixes some stuff up. An entirely new challenging mode, a rebalance of the entire game to go with the rework of the new leveling progression numbers, ability to do the co-op intro online, faster PVP rounds, language translations and more! With the rebalance you’ll find that your fighters are dealing even more damage as they gain experience. All balance changes are retro-active meaning you do not have to worry about starting over or starting new characters in order to experience that – they’re all dynamically applied to what you already have! Feel free to check out what we’ve changed in the list below, and as always – please leave us feedback about anything you find noteworthy. As always, the main Story (although not included in this update) is being developed alongside all these improvements we have been releasing. Check out our blog for the full changelist: http://blog.thebehemoth.com/2017/09/28/update-5-infinite-wisdom-is-here/

Backing Up Your Playlist -- How To Edit It Later (Please Read)!

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

 

I just wanted to take a minute to describe how to make sure you can edit your playlist later, once it's been uploaded. Hopefully this will help you get the best out of our level editor!

 

BACKING UP

WARNING: Once you upload your playlist online, it is COMPLETELY removed from the Level Editor and can NEVER be edited again -- not online and not in the editor!  There is a warning message and a help slide in-game that notes this.

 

Most creators want to make tweaks to their levels later, so we HIGHLY recommend you create a backup of any playlists PRIOR to upload. This will allow you to make changes to your backup, and upload it as a new playlist!

 

There are two ways to back your playlist up:

 

1) If you have an external memory unit (such as a USB thumb drive), copy the level file onto that, and copy it back to the Xbox when you want to make edits

 

To copy to your external memory unit:

From the Dashboard, select Settings > System > Storage > All Devices > Games and Apps > BattleBlock Theater

Select the Playlist File

Select Copy > Your External Memory Unit

 

To copy back: 

From the Dashboard, select Settings > System > Storage > Your Memory Unit > Games and Apps > BattleBlock Theater

Select the Playlist File

Select Copy > Your Primary Memory Device (such as your Hard Drive)

 

Please use caution when moving files back and forth, and ensure you do not accidentally overwrite existing files! (The Xbox system will prompt you if you're about to overwrite.)

 

2) Otherwise, save each level individually to a new playlist to make a backup in-game

 
Hopefully this helps! Happy level creating!

Thanks for the heads-up. I had no idea the level editor worked like this and it would have been heartbreaking to lose a playlist forever just because you upload it. I will make sure to remember this.

 

Though, I must ask - why? I think most people would assume that free editing and ability to re-upload a playlist is possible. Were there any technical difficulties? Was it a demand from Microsoft?

Will there ever be an update that makes it possible to delete/edit the playlist once its uploaded?  Thank you.

Thank you for the heads up! I made a backup for my maps like you said. Even though I'm happy with the final product, it's always good to tinker with your old maps and see the inner workings still.
