First Time Setup - StormPacer/How-to-Noodle Wiki

Setting up for noodling

You will need two difficulty files, one for the original map and one for the noodle version. The noodle version will always be rewritten, so make changes to the map in the original difficulty. DO NOT OPEN THE NOODLE DIFFICULTY IN MMA2!

When you have both of the difficulties set up, there are two sections in the script called INPUT and OUTPUT. In INPUT, write the original difficulty file name into the apostrophes, eg. ExpertStandard.dat. And in OUTPUT write the difficulty file name for the noodle difficulty, eg. ExpertPlusStandard.dat.
