How To Upload Sheet Music

Siege of Madrigal by Marty O'Donnell

After the last tutorial on how to download sheet music files there were some requests on how to upload files to the site for other readers to see.

If you've transcribed some music from Halo or any other Bungie or Wideload game and would like to share it with the community here through Rampancy's sheet music section, first you need to have an account, confirm that account, and be logged in. All of those steps are covered in the tutorial on How To Download Sheet Music Files. After you've followed those steps, come back here.

How To Download Sheet Music Files

Siege of Madrigal by Marty O'Donnell

Every so often readers have some trouble obtaining access to the sheet music files on Rampancy.net. Below is a short tutorial to help you out.

The short answer is that these files are freely available to anyone. All I ask in return is that you register an account first. Registration is free. I don't give out your email address to anyone, and the site will not mail you anything unless you ask.

ASE Ep. 167 Marathon Tempus Irae 31 KMG-365

See video
Tempus Irae 31 KMG-365

Narcogen and Blackstar wake up after the destruction of the Pfhor ship.

So this video is level 31 KMG-365, which is basically just a terminal anyway. When all the episodes are posted I will re-order them so they appear chronologically as played.

We're fighting the Pfhor in Italy of the past in third party scenario Tempus Irae!

Tempus Irae can be played, like the other Marathon games, using the open source Aleph One engine which you can get here for Windows, Mac and Linux:

http://source.bungie.org

Tempus Irae and other third party scenarios for the Aleph One engine can be downloaded here:

There's a ZIP format archive here:

We use irons' Co-Op script, (but not this time) which gives weapons and ammo to both players if either picks any up, and prevents weapon loss on death (so items can't be destroyed in lava or slime). The script also allows one player to teleport to a destination set by themselves or their partner, in case co-op players run into a problem a solo player would have to restart for.

Marathon Tempus Irae Level 32 Secret Terminal

See video
Tempus Irae Level 32 Secret Term
A secret terminal tells the real origins of the Pfhor's visit to Renaissance Italy.

ASE Ep. 165 Marathon Tempus Irae 30 & 32: I Haven't Killed Anything Since 1845 and Vesuvius Pt. 1

See video
Tempus Irae 30 & 32

Some Enforcers get flushed into space, and Narcogen and Blackstar enter a volcano.

First of all, apologies on the delay for this episode. Secondly, we had a fair number of technical issues during the play session. First, when we stepped through the teleporter at the end of level 30, something happened that prevented the video capture from working. We then proceeded to attempt to play level 32 Mt. Vesuvius, but the game went out of sync. We thought we were almost done (and thought video was recording) so we pushed on in an attempt to complete the level, until we realized we weren't going to be able to find the secret terminal that way. At that point, Narcogen scratch-started the level in single-player mode and re-started recording, while Blackstar is still attempting to finish the original co-op game.

So this video includes footage of level 30 I Haven't Killed Anything Since 1845, which has a neat bit of scripting in it-- you should check out the spoiler page entry for it to see how it was achieved:

http://marathon.bungie.org/spoiler/tempus/30.shtml

and then also single-player footage of Narcogen completing level 32, Mt. Vesuvius.

Later on we'll post a separate video for level 31, KMG-365, which is basically just a terminal anyway, and a lengthy bit of terminal reading for the secret terminal in level 32.
