This film package contains vid films for 42 of the 44 levels of the M1 scenario Phoenix Falling. Be sure and use the original Phoenix Falling application and map when viewing the films. Keep in mind that these films will not play properly using any future version of the Phoenix Falling map. Once the final version of the map is released, I hope to submit new vid films for it.
This film package contains spoiler films for the scenario Marathon RED. All of the films were done in March 2004. All are done on Kindergarten (Easy in RED) in the vidmaster style. Each film is done using the original Marathon RED application.
There are a total of 28 films in the package. No film is included for the levels:
Level 29: END GAME
Level 30: How big's your can?
Level 31: Up from the depths...30 stories high..., or
Level 32: WE BE SLACKERS.
I was not able to complete Level 29: END GAME in the vidmaster style. Since there is no way to recharge your shields, this level must be completed on one shield. Although I came close several times, I was never able to finish the level all the way through the teleportation to the next level. Unless I am overlooking something, Level 30 cannot be completed under vidmaster rules since the weapon necessary to activate the switches is not available. Levels 31 and 32 can be avoided during normal gameplay, so I saw no need to include a film for each of those levels.
The film for Level 24: Re-Tired is somewhat incomplete. I was not able to show the teleportation to the next level. The weapon necessary to launch the player into the outside is not available under vidmaster rules. Likewise, the film for Level 27: Re-Shop is somewhat incomplete. Once again, the weapon necessary to climb into the raised alcove is not available under vidmaster rules.
All the other films complete the level successfully and show the teleportation to the next level.
This package contains vid films for 32 of the 37 solo levels of the Marathon scenario Excalibur: Morgana's Revenge. The films were done in September and October of 2002. Regretfully, I was not able to vid all 37 of the levels. The remaining five levels are too tough for me at this time. Hopefully, someone else will have better luck with those levels. The package contains a detailed Read Me.

This is a deceptively challenging Rubicon scenario to play and vid. Don't be fooled by the easy "no-brainer" levels early on. They get much more difficult as the scenario progresses. Due to the lack of recharge stations on most levels, and very few recharge canisters even so, a few of the levels are extremely challenging for vidding. This package contains films for each of the 14 solo levels. Enjoy!

This package contains my vid films for the Marathon Infinity scenario "The Incident at Quiliam". Other than a bit of monster freeze in the last level, this scenario is well constructed, and very enjoyable to play and vid. Even with the monster freeze, the last level is quite a challenge to play and vid. The package contains a film for each of the 7 levels of the scenario. Enjoy!

This package contains my vid films for all 12 levels of the Marathon Infinity scenario "An AI Called Wanda". This scenario is extrememly fun to play and very challenging to vid. When viewing these films, be sure and use the Marathon Infinity application, the Wanda map, and the Wanda Shapes file. Otherwise, the films may not play properly. Enjoy!

NOTE: This replaces version 1.0 that was posted a couple of days ago. I was able to vid the level "The Face Below the Puddles" today. It is the only new film in this version.
This package contains vid films for 26 of the 35 levels of the Infinity scenario Marathon Fell. Fell is perhaps the most difficult scenario i have ever played and vid. It is very well constructed, extremely challenging, and immensely fun to play and vid. I highly recommend it to everyone. Regretfully, I was not able to vid all 35 levels. If there is a common theme as to why the other 9 are beyond by ability (or patience) at this time, it is mainly due to the lack of available weapons on those levels. Even so, I do believe a few of the remaining 9 are vidable. Hopefully someone will be challenged enough to give it a try.
This is a vid film for the one level Infinity scenario Vilcabamba. It is one of the most beautifully textured levels i have ever seen. The enemies are not what make this an enjoyable level to play and vid. It is the textures and the puzzles that make this an awesome Marathon experience. I highly recommend this scenario to everyone.
This package contains my vid film for the special vidmaster level "Where's Bob when you need him?" from the Infinity scenario Marathon Jigsaw. I found it to be very challenging and quite difficult. A detailed Read Me is included with the film.
This package contains vid films for all 8 solo levels of the Infinity scenario Marathon Jigsaw. I found this to be a very enjoyable and challenging set of levels. They are all very well constructed, definitely hard in places, perhaps a bit unfair on TC in a couple of situations, but absolutely worth the time for anyone that enjoys Marathon. The package contains a detailed Read Me.
This vid package contains vid films for all 14 levels of the Marathon Infinity scenario Origin of Species. This is one of the most challenging scenarios I have played. Several of the levels were very difficult to vid. A few of the films were produced in May 2000, while the rest were produced within the last few days. A detailed Read Me is included in the package.
This vid package contains two films showing how to complete each path of the Marathon 2 level "All Roads Lead To Sol..." using no ammo. The film that takes the path to the normal exit was produced in the summer of 2000, while the film that takes the path to the secret Bungie credit terminal was produced earlier this year. As is well known, it is impossible to complete both paths within the same film. Both films proceed in the same way until the 2x recharger near the large cache of Shotgun shells is reached. There the strategies change. In either film, no ammo is used at all.
This package contains vid films for all 7 levels of the Marathon 2 scenario Escape!! All of the films were produced in late 1999. It is one of the most enjoyable scenarios I have ever played! I found all of the levels very challenging and a joy to vid. The 6th level is a vacuum level and will have you crying before you successfully finish it. The 7th level is enormous, very challenging, and produced a vid film in excess of 2 hours. I highly recommend this scenario to anyone looking for a good Marathon test. This vid package also contains a detailed Read Me.
This package contains vid films for all 13 solo levels of the Marathon Infinity scenario Operation Vengeance. They were all done by myself in March of last year. This scenario is one of my all time favorites. Very challenging and very, very fun. All 13 levels are a blast to play. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys Marathon at it's best. The package also contains a detailed Read Me.
This vid package contains vid films for 14 of the 15 solo levels in the scenario The Black Series. Eleven of the levels were vid by myself in late 1999 and early 2000. The remaining three levels were vid yesterday and today. The only level I was not able to vid was the level "Bishop Station". Unfortunately, that level is beyond my abilities at this time. The package contains a detailed Read Me.
This package contains my vid films for 12 of the 16 Marathon Evil solo levels. Several of these were done last year, with the remaining done within the past month. I regret I have not been able to do all 16. Unfortunately, the remaining levels are beyond my ability at this time. Some of the levels in this package are among the hardest levels I have ever vid, especially the level "Parathymeter". A detailed Read Me is included in the package.
This package contains vid films for all 5 levels of the Marathon 2 scenario The Alderian Connection. They were all produced within the last month and are among the longest films I have ever done. Each one is roughly 1 hour or longer. In fact, the film for level 5 runs approximately 2.5 hours. The extreme length of each film is primarily due to the size and complexity of the levels of this scenario. Even so, this is one of the most enjoyable scenarios I have ever played. Each level contains everything that makes Marathon fun, i.e. plenty of ammo, weapons, a 2x recharger, and lots of enemies. At times, some of the situations can be frustrating (especially the vacuum level 4). All in all, I highly recommend this scenario to anyone wishing for a tremendous Marathon challenge. The film package also contains a detailed Read Me.
This package contains vid films for all 8 levels of the Infinity scenario The Sons of Ludd. This is one of the most enjoyable scenarios I have played and I highly recommend it to everyone. Five of the films were done by myself early last year. Only recently did I revisit this scenario and was able to complete films for the remaining 3 levels. Not surprisingly, these 3 levels are the hardest of the 8 to vid. The package also contains a detailed Read Me.
This film package contains vid films for each of the 6 levels of the Marathon Infinity scenario "The Siege of Nor'Kohr". They were done in January 2000 using the Marathon Infinity application. A detailed Read Me is included within the package.
