Notes and Comments

  • LEV files occur in some Retro64 games.
  • LEV files are usually compressed and encrypted XML files.
  • LEV files may be encrypted with Bitwise NOT operation.
  • LEV files may be compressed with JCALG / JCALG1 compression method (Algorithm is slightly modified in the Retro64 version - there is no checksum field in the header, so it needs to be added manually as "0" checksum to skip checksum validation and decompress data correctly).
