A Guide to Rabi-Ribi Map Editing
User-created Rabi-Ribi Maps can be found here:
This is not the work of one person. It is a collaborative effort of the Rabi-Ribi Speedrunning Community.

Rabi-Ribi maps have the extension
.map. Normally, these maps are found in
Rabi-Ribi/data/area in your steam directory. We will explain how to modify the maps in this directory.
We use the Rabi-Ribi Map Converter to convert between the
.map file format, which is used by Rabi-Ribi, and the
.json file format, which is used by the Tiled Map Editor.
After downloading the Rabi-Ribi Map Converter, unzip it into any location you want.
In the rabiribi map converter directory, there are three folders:
How it works:
Copy the original Rabi-Ribi maps from
s1_original_maps. These maps will never be modified by the converter.
original_to_editable.bat will take all the maps in
s1_original_maps, convert them to
.json file format maps, and place them in
You can open these
.json file format maps in
s2_editable_maps in the Tiled Map Editor.
editable_to_final.bat will take all the maps in
s2_editable_maps, convert them back to Rabi-Ribi maps, and place them in
You can copy these
s3_final_maps back into Rabi-Ribi to try them out. (maps are placed in the
Rabi-Ribi\data\area folder in your steam directory)
The following guides will help you get started with map editing.
A: This happens when you don’t put the tileset files in the same directory as the .json file. If your .json file is in
s2_editable_maps, you should place the tileset files in
s2_editable_maps as well.
A: A conversion error happens when you do something in Tiled that is not valid in Rabi-Ribi. I suggest reading the Important Notes when working with the Map Editor to find out what you should and should not do in Tiled.

We have a custom maps portal for user-created Rabi-Ribi maps.
This Live Map Editor is an alternative map editor for Rabi-Ribi. It can be used to edit the maps by setting the map tiles in-game.
Rabi-Ribi also has a Randomizer, also brought to you by the Speedrunning Community.
