Xtreme, Downloading Game Levels
Okay, so you've downloaded Sonic Xtreme.
You're a little impressed by the game's mechanics, but find the game as
it is sorely inadequate because there's only one game level. Upset that
the game is so short? Well, then this game guide is for you! Today we're
going to talk about how to expand Sonic Xtreme by downloading some
extra game levels from the Internet.
Step One: Download Sonicxv6.zip
You won't be able to download some game
levels for Sonic Xtreme until you've downloaded the latest version. To
save you a little time, we have Sonic Xtreme version 6 available on our
website. You can get that by clicking here.
QBasic Central's website may look cutting-edge, but it's also the best
place for Sonic Xtreme downloads.
Step Two: Go to the Official Sonic Xtreme
QBasic Central is the official website
of the coding group who made Sonic Xtreme, so this is the best place to
look for all the latest Sonic Xtreme levels. Their URL is http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Haven/1631/qbasic.html,

click your way to the SonicX Section. Then, click on "Where can

Sonic Game levels are listed. Click on the name of the file to start
downloading each level you like; you can also click on the word Screenshot
located next to each title if you're interested in knowing how the game
level you're downloading looks like.
Step Four: Unzip Sonicvx6.exe and the
Extract Sonicvx6.zip using a file-extracting
utility like Winzip (if you don't have a copy of Winzip, you can download
one by clicking here.) Now once it's
extracted, make sure you extract the zipped game levels into the SonicX
You can do this by clicking into the SonicX directory, then clicking and
dragging the game level .zip into the SonicX directory. Just make sure
you click on the option that reads "Extract to folder..."
Step Five: Load up The Levels
Now run Sonicws.bat. After Sonic
starts shaking his finger, use the mouse to click on "Load a Different
Level". You should see a list of all the levels you've downloaded.
If you only see Metro.lvl (as shown above), then you've extracted all the
game levels to the wrong directory. Otherwise, pick a level and let the
