The MARATHON SPOILER GUIDE (MSG) is a compilation of the collected knowledge of the games 'Marathon', 'Marathon 2: Durandal', and 'Marathon Infinity' produced by Bungie, as well as several third party scenarios based on the Marathon engine. Much of the information in this document has been contributed by other people, and when appropriate, credit has been given.
Most of the information in this guide is meant to reveal secrets or hints on completing the game and finding hidden areas. Thus, if you continue to read this, be forewarned:
You *WILL* be spoiled if you read any further. I take no responsiblity for the disappointment you will feel if you inadvertantly read this information.
The MSG is first divided into four parts: Marathon, Marathon 2: Durandal, Marathon Infinity, and Third Party Maps. For each section, the MSG is divided into sections, one for each level in the game, as well as some general information sections. Each level is designated by its position in the game. To go to a particular level, just click on its name in the level listings.
In case you don't know how to determine the name of the level, just switch over to map mode (default key: 'm'), and look at the top of the map. The name of the level will be there.
Level numbers are also given. To go to a specific level, hold down 'command' and 'option' as you press 'Begin New Game'. You are then presented with a dialog box, in which you should enter the level number you wish to go to. (This works in both games, although in Marathon 2, the numbering begins with 1 as opposed to 0).
If you find a new tip or a secret that you would like to include into the MSG, you can send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be as detailed as possible so that I will have no trouble finding it for myself. I will most likely rewrite your tip or secret when I put it into the MSG, but you will still be credited for your contribution. Please avoid 'cheating' when looking for tips and secrets (such as looking at the maps with a map editor).
