Are any of the path tiles directly beside the path that connects the start point to the first level (it doesn't matter if the paths' graphics show them connecting or not)? If so, you need to make sure that all separate paths are one tile away from previous paths. If not, upload your map so we can try to help you better.
I've decided to cancel SMBXville Under Seige. After my 1st Senior year of college, I realized I wouldn't have enough time to devote to finishing my four-level episode. Apologies to those who cared.
