make a bigmap.txt file with the level names in the order you want them. Like:
"levela1.graal","levela2.graal",
"levelb1.graal","levelb2.graal"

save it in the folder with you levels, then right click on one of the levels you want mapped, click on Open With, and open it with graal.exe, then in the editor hit "M".

Map maker program = levelgenerator
Download it with the setup.exe, update the developer to the latest, and you should get it.

errrr

thats not what I meant, if you already have a bigmap.txt, and you have to completely change it becuase alot of the level names have changed, but you still have alot of the old levels still in use, do you have to manually fix it?

Okies, to fix those parts...
I'm going to show you how to make a map.txt.
Each level is obviously within quotations: "
Seperate each level name with commas: ,
At the end of each level line, when you want to start a new layer of levels that is, do not put a comma after the levelname:
"level1.graal","level2.graal"
"level3.graal","level4.graal"
Added
"level1.graal",level2.graal","newlevel1.graal"
"level3.graal","level4.graal"

Notice I added a level on the first line.
So your map would have 3 levels on the first(top) line, and 2 levels on the second line(bottom line in this case).

The added one should be:
"level1.graal",level2.graal","newlevel1.graal"
"level3.graal","level4.graal",""
Otherwise Graal will bug up.

Dude its like this:

"level_a-2.graal","level_b-2.graal"
That should work!

You could name the filenames of the levels anything you wanted to, they don't have to be levelgenerated levels in order to be written with the map.txt.
