Yes.

Spoiler:
Only if you happen to find a certain set of secret levels. I needed something to give as a reward for such an accomplishment, after all.

To paraphrase an old but still living singer:
Everybody must play Yuge.
I just play 'em; I don't know how they work.

If anyone just loves the texturing in YugePax and Yuge (if you ever try it with infinity shapes), I updated my set of weland plugins with a Super Pave plugin that will texture/shade your entire level for you in the Yuge style. Warning: It WILL overwrite all of your textures, unlike the built in Pave feature.

If you're OK with misaligned textures and somewhat ugly texturing, you can just use this plugin and never have to worry about texturing manually ever again. If you're like me, I absolutely hate texturing, and what I end up with is always ugly anyway.

In case I haven't already done a good enough job making this sound terrible, I provided compiled dlls for all of the plugins, but they only work on my linux box, not my windows box. Then again, the version of StairGenerator that Treellama recently compiled doesn't work on my windows box either, so I have a feeling the whole thing is a bit of a clusterfuck. If anyone wants to use these, I'd suggest compiling them yourself. The source code is included.

'sup doogs.

W'rk just uploaded a new batch of 2304 Yuge Bigly Bonus Maps over at Simplici7y. Among several improvements are the inclusion of full community quotes from Mararthon: Yuge in the terminals, as well as a small effort from me: Yuge Bigly 2: Electric Doogaloo.

At the time of this post, you have 23,419 hours to go, Adminn. Better get to work! [spnkr]

Surprise! I custom-made my own Yuge shirt and ordered it through UberPrints, and I got it home today. The images didn't turn out quite as bigly as I'd have hoped, but it's still solid.

I also got a shirt with the NEFX logo on it, but this is enough imagery for now.

The main peack of Mararthon: Yuge has been completed at 256 levels, with the final video viewable here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v10OS6wwErs

Work has begun on the Bigly Bonus Maps, and I just uploaded the first video of that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X1rLd3xvIz0

Thanks again for your interest. More Yugecontent will come.

This kind of dedication makes an extremely limited edition Yuge box set almost feasible.

Yeah after we talked about what would go in a Yuge box set, I really wanted one quite a bit, I have to admit.

Yugeposter! This thing now watches over me in my sleep, granting me inner security and inspiration.

An even biglier surprise is coming up slowly but surely. Until then, work on Bigly 1: The Loneliest Number continues. Expect two Yugevideos to be uploaded today.

So now my amazing artwork is hanging up on someone's wall. I'm not exactly sure how I feel about this.

A lot of you are probably already aware, but my playthrough of the first sub-peack of the Bigly Bonus Maps, titled Bigly 1: The Loneliest Number, is complete. Here's the final video of it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4EtXArAiWo

Work has begun on the next sub-peack, Bigly 2: Electric Doogaloo. You can see it here. A new video should be up by tomorrow.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Or9F9I ... 0xw03c010c

You might notice that the first of these videos doesn't have audio commentary because I've basically run out of new or interesting things to say. I'll bring back the mic for the beginnings of sub-peacks as I enter them to document my reactions to new features, and I'll keep it on for all of the last sub-peack in my journey, but otherwise I'm mainly just letting the gameplay (and chosen music) do the talking for the rest of my recorded Yuge playthroughs. Thanks again to anyone who's showed any interest. A couple more surprises are in store.

Behold! The long-overdue unofficial soundtrack for Mararthon: Yuge! Get it here:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/b6k1fd0bd ... +Music.zip

At 30 tracks for every campaign level and over 80 minutes, NEFX's first full-length release whips up a tight blast of keyboard-heavy Integral Prog for all the Yugeheads out there. In fact, this release is so cult that it features Windbreaker on a few tracks -- sometimes on keyboard, other times on an unplugged electric drumkit (I also play on these at different points). Credit also belongs to him and Douchetower for the amazing artwork, of course.

Thanks also to members Sosen, Kaden, Bingen, and Ethen.

As for the downloadable file, it's a zip file for a folder containing the following:

1. A Music folder with all the tracks
2. A version of the Yuge map peack set up to play the music
3. A menu theme to replace the original one. Don't worry, it still contains the opening line, but takes it to a whole new level.
4. An "album version" folder that has all the tracks in intended order with a few spoken interludes added to make more of an album experience.

This has been successfully tested, but let me know if there are any prahblums and I'll see about solving them. At the very least though, you can put on the album version on iTunes or something while playing the game and it'll fit well. I'll upload this whole thing to YouTube and elsewhere soon.

Until then, work continues on the Bigly 2: Electric Doogaloo playthrough. Thanks, everyone.

Since you didn't really make this clear, I'd just like to point out that nothing about this is official in any way.

Oh yeah, definitely not. This is to Yuge what Groove Sessions are to M2. I'll go ahead and edit the post to mention that, though.

News report: The sub-peack Bigly 2: Electric Doogaloo is finished, with the last playthrough video of it viewable here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9q5VPSpfwY

Work has begun on One Weapon Edition, with the first playthrough video of it viewable here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Db1sCw_U4bY

So far, I have finished over 770 levels. Around 3,580 remain.

Two new One Weapon Edition videos are on the way, the second of which finally features a couple levels with only the rocket launcher. I turned the mic on for these videos for any responsive commentary, but all in all there isn't too much to report. Even in levels that revolve around what I would call secondary weapons (both types of pistols, the rocket launcher, and the flamethrower), a lot of situations can be avoided through good maneuvering. What's more, alien weapons can still be taken off of enforcers, and though not as effective as some other weapons they definitely take a lot of the stress out of combat. As such, future videos for this sub-peack will not have the mic on. Instead, they will all be set to shuffles (or, depending on the planned length of the video, full playthroughs) of NEFX's soundtrack to Yuge for fans to hear while witnessing the action.

What I'm mainly wondering for the rest of this sub-peack is how I'll be able to handle situations where I'm coming out from underwater into a tight and heavy combat situation without fitting weaponry (i.e. a bunch of hunters while I'm stuck with a flamethrower or a bunch of troopers while I'm stuck with the yugepistols). I've faced less severe but similar situations in the past and they stand out to me as being contenders for the most difficult and frustrating experiences in Yuge. For now I have confidence that if I keep an alien wepaon from one of the enforcers handy I'll stand a better chance of making it through those situations. We'll see. Until then, thanks again for your interest (if you have it [MGrin] ).
