Many thanks to Nicholas Head <> for sending us some vidmaster films of the Infinity levels Aye Mak Sicur and it's variations Aie Mak Sicur, Carroll St. Station and You're Wormfood Dude. You can get them here. The package also contains an interesting additional film of Aye Mak Sicur. About this film Nicholas writes:

The other film is one of my other attempts at "Aye mak Sicur" that ended in a rather odd fashion! Every time I've been through "Aye Mak Sicur" there have always been only two Juggernauts to pound to the pavement. The other two films of this level currently available at the Marathon Vidmaster's page (by Jim "Young Gun" Mitchell and Jim "Placid Pladipus" Mitchell) also show only two SPNKable Juggernauts. Sure there are a couple of others floating out in space but only two where you can get at them right? Wrong! Some how a third Juggernaut turned up to spoil my day while I was searching for stray Hunters.

A third Jug on Aye Mak Sicur? You bet...

Added Beware of Low-Flying Defense Drones... to the Vidmaster Tips & Tricks section.

Many thanks to Tobias Merriman <> for sending us a vid film of the Infinity level If I Had a Rocket Launcher, I'd Make Somebody Pay. You can get it here

One the nice things about watching Vid films is seeing someone come up with a new technique when vidding a level. Jim Mitchell does just that in a new film of Never Burn Money. Want to get to that 3X Recharger in the Deprivation Chamber without wall climbing twice? Then check out the Never Burn Money section of Vidmaster Tips & Tricks. The Marathon Vidmaster's Page - pushing the frontiers of Vidness!

Aaron Bergman <> sends us a film of Infinity level 31. It's added to his package Aaron_Vid_Films.sit.hqx

Feb 27, 1997
Many thanks to Aaron Bergman <> for sending us a set of Vid films of the Infinity levels 32 and 33 and level 14 from Marathon 2. You can get his films here

Feb 22, 1997
Jim Mitchell completes all 28 solo Marathon 2 levels. In doing so he completes all three Vidmaster challenges - a staggering total of 88 solo levels. Jim's Marathon 2 package can be found here

A short time after completely all 88 solo levels, Jim disappeared for a few days. He claims, and still maintains, that he went on vacation. Rumor has it though that he spent the time hiding a bunch of strange alien crystals. Before disappearing he was heard muttering stuff about Skinny Buddha Dudes and a... dishwasher! Jim has denied this repeatedly.

Feb 21, 1997
And we have another contender! Jimmy Mitchell <> vids Acme Station - the King of levels. Jimmy takes out the level with only one trip to the 2X recharger. Also watch out for Pfhor Hang Time! You'll recognize it when you see it. It's really funny. You can get it here.

Feb 20, 1997
Many thanks to all the people who pointed out that Jim's Infinity package did not contain a film of level 8 Post Naval Trauma and that level 33 was a duplicate of level 24. What happened? That time of the month? Grendels in the works? Low pay? A Spazeroid conspiracy? Whatever! The problem has now been corrected and the individual in question is spending her remaining days on Gr'ndl Prime.

Not to be outdone Jimmy Mitchell <> (aka Placid Pladipus) sends us Vid films of 22 Infinity levels. Jimmy writes:

"All of my films are at least equal, and most are better than Jim's. We're talkin' quality here."

Well judge for yourself. Jimmy's Vid Package can be found here here.

Yes!... here they are... all 33 solo Infinity levels completed Vidmaster Style. Jim Mitchell completes the Marathon Infinity Vidmaster Challenge. You can get his films here.

Feb 14, 1997
Added Try again to the Vidmaster Tips & Tricks section.

Acme Station - the King of levels. When asked whether it was possible to vid - Greg Kirkpatrick, the creator of this level, replied:

"viding acme? Sorta - It's probably the hardest one to straight vid, because you have no room to move around."

Well now it has been beaten Vidmaster Style. If you think you're good... well meet the best.

Jan 31, 1997
Nicholas Head <> sends us the first of hopefully a number vidmaster films. It's a film of the Marathon 2 level If I Had a Rocket Launcher, I'd Make Somebody Pay. You can get it here.

Jimmy Mitchell <> points out that there are a set of films of the three special Infinity Vidmaster levels on the net by Sam Miller at his site The Marathon File Library (nice set of pages BTW). The films can be found on his Replays page. Sam writes:

"Ever heard of the VidMaster's Challenge? It's 3 hidden levels in Marathon Infinity beatable by only true Vidmasters. Here are the films of me playing the VidMaster's Challenge (200K)"

Yes we have to agree with Sam these levels are "beatable by only true Vidmasters" when played on Total Carnage. Sam's package does include a very nice (though large) Infinity Vidmaster Challenge collage which we think you should see.

Jan 11, 1997
Naoki Yokoyama's (nao) "Marathon Film Renamer" has been upgraded to version 1.2 and now handles Marathon Infinity films. Drop any Marathon film on this application and a small log file will be created detailing the difficulty level. Spazeroids beware! You can get it at Dr. noa's Marathon Utilities page or directly from this page here.

Jan 7, 1997
Many thanks to Jimmy Mitchell <> for sending us a Vid Tip for Waterloo Waterpark. See the Vidmaster Tips & Tricks section.

The special Infinity Vidmaster level You Think You're Big Time? You're Gonna Die Big Time! completed on 1X shields, no recharging, no hits, no damage?!?! Yeah sure. Jimmy Mitchell <> (aka Placid Pladipus) (no relation to Jim Mitchell) proves that it can be done with a simple shortcut. You can get it here. Note the nifty pistol shooting at the beginning. That's style - Vid Style!

More sevens?!?!

In Marathon 2 it takes 7 energy bolts or 3 high energy bolts from the Fusion pistol to finish off a Pfhor Hunter on Total Carnage. Seven and Three ;-)

You can carry two magnums with 8 shot clips. 8 + 8 = 16 = 1 + 6 = 7

M.75 Assault Rifle fires a standard clip of 52 .75 caliber shells. 52 = 5 + 2 = 7. The M.75 also holds a clip of 7 grenades.

Tozt-7 Naplam Unit (formally the Tozt.25 = 2 + 5 = 7) discharges a stream of fire 7 yards (20 feet) long, continuously for 7 seconds.

SPNKR-X17 SSM Launcher (Lazyboy).

KKV-7 SMG Flechette.

Need we say more? Marathon's Story page eat your heart out. ;-)
