You can't add music files to .zip files and have to play .lvl files through the editor and load them via wherever you saved them to (you can do a general search through your files)

I think this should be updated with the PGE editor instead of the legacy one.

if i erase white color on the custom GFX mask and leave transparent background, will it work correct? or mask can only have opaque black and white colors?
and can i make, for example, a bgo semi-transparent or make it foreground?

you must use opaque black and white; you'll have to use png images for trasparency. also, i don't really get what you mean by sprites, but if you're talking about npcs, you'll have to make an npc code file.

To post images on the forum, you'll first need to upload them to an image hosting site like http://imgur.com (which is totally free and can be done without an account). Once you do that, copy the link that the site gives you and paste it inside an [img] BBcode tag in your post:

What about scrolling?
I can't seem to make it move from Section 1 to 2. Section 2 is where the first enemies are.
