Hello Simon,
Please send replies to the mailing list!
I'm currently on vacation, and only read my email every now and then,
and others might be able to help you better or might also be
interested in writing levels. So please do not unnecessarily take
discussions off the list.

No. You absolutely need to write the levels in the Enigma format;
another XML-based format will NOT work.
Check the enigma reference manual on level writing, it contains
information on how the files MUST be structured.

I'm not up to date on visual level editors for enigma - I've never
used them. I know that there was at least one, but I do not know if it
is complete.

When writing XML files, make sure to use an appropriate editor. Using
editors such as Word is NOT recommended - the file will likely contain
some special characters that break it. It's best to use a special XML
source editor; most software developer editors will also work just
Again I cannot give you a detailed recommendation since I do not use
Windows or OS X.

best regards,
Erich Schubert
