Project Carrot Level Converter

An utility program to convert a Jazz Jackrabbit 2 level (.j2l) into the format recognized by Project Carrot. Most events and other features that are currently not supported in Project Carrot are ignored, as the event mapping in Project Carrot is different, but not yet finalized. Expect new versions to be released whenever new features are added to Project Carrot.

You can download prebuilt Windows binaries over at the Project Carrot homepage.


pclc name path\to\Level.j2l

You can pick any name you want; the level will be built into a folder by that name. The same name is used by other levels in their next and secret level data. If the name is omitted, the filename will be used as the name.


Compiling requires Qt 5.x.


To build with Visual Studio 2015, configure the Qt settings with the MSVS Qt 5 plugin first.

MSVS is not strictly required for building, but you're on your own if you prefer using some other compiler for building on Windows.


First set up the environment as instructed in the repository for Project Carrot, clone this project to a folder, navigate to it, and:

qmake -spec linux-clang
make release

This will build the executable to Release/PCLevelConverter.


Follow the Linux instructions, but use macx-clang as the spec instead.
