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.

Strange Aeons

No need to wait for strange aeons for Blackstar and Narcogen to die, even in a level with hardly any enemies! In this case, we're bringing the plot of Marathon Infinity to a close by completing the activation of the dormant S'pht AI, Thoth, so he/she/it can call in the S'pht'Kr cavalry to kick Pfhor butt.

Blackstar and Narcogen face a profuse proliferation of insidious switches and spooky level design, not to mention a passel of fusion infused BOBs sent by the devilish Durandal. Also there's a spot of lag.
