I was bored... the javascript still confuses me a little, but just looking at the data for the first few levels I tried to figure out some myself... looking at the data from the first 4 levels, the pattern is easy to see... at least between level, stage and the floor plan of the stage. The level determines everything and it is easiest to calculate everything else about it from the level number, the level number directly determines the floor plan which is in 4 sections, and the floor plan then determines the stage number, or at least that is the easiest way to calculate them. These equations are not fun to reverse but possible... anyway my algebra skills are rusty and I am sure there are ways to simplify them...:

EDIT: Forget the Q formulas till I completely recalculate them.

s = Stage Number

Q1 - Q4 = The four floor sections, Q1 is where you start, they are numbered counter-clockwise from there. This number corresponds to floor patterns numbered 0-127.

s = 2097152(Q1) + 128(Q2) + (Q3) + 16384(Q4)

Because of the nature of the equation, two levels could in theory have the same stage number, I think, which is why some stage numbers have undefined levels and codes. I have not figured out the codes relationship yet, looks complex in the javascript also, emerald and floor color look simple in the javascript and I just haven't figured them out yet, rings and blue sphere counts is as simple as knowing what they are for each of the 128 sections and what sections are included, difficulty not figured out yet, but as I read on this very forun each section has a difficulty assigned and it's based upon that.

Sorry if this was pretty obvious, but I was bored, and wanted to show an example of what format I want the equations in. Also wanted to save time because you guys probably have them figured out already and the rest could just be posted.

I would also sort of like to know how to properly type the floor function symbol :lol:
