Help with Marathon Evil

Post Jun 28th '15, 06:06

On the level Septic Exodus, there's a room where you have to enter in the correct code, or die by being smushed.

Using your map view you can see which switches correspond to what symbol

I still have no idea how to solve this, I tried following the code given in one of the terminals, and every slot I try putting the uplink chip into ends up with my death, what am I doing wrong

Hi,

That's a tricky one. I don't know if you've already read this, but perhaps this will help a bit?

Failing that, there's this YouTube walkthrough:

Good luck! For me, Marathon Evil is a masterclass in level design.

The spoiler guides are pretty much always useless for solving any problem more complex then 'hit this switch then go here'

Because it wasn't written with stupid people in mind.

The details it gives or more or less useless for me, as I followed those directions, and no matter (as I already said) slot I plugged the uplink chip into, I died

I finally made it to this room.

Either chip from the first area will work.
You can miss a switch in area 2 and two switches in area 3 and still get into this room, but those switches don't affect anything in this room.

The order of the switches doesn't matter, i.e. chip slot,
Spoiler:
(#6 counting from the left)
pillar switch, row switch,
Spoiler:
(#3 counting from the right)
or chip slot, row switch, pillar switch, or pillar switch, chip slot, row switch.

The only thing I could find out is that if, while fighting the Mystic and it's minions, you accidently shoot another of the row switches, the ceiling will make it's entrance without asking Mr. DeMille if it's time for it's close-up.
Otherwise I have not been able to duplicate this problem with Windows 7 and AlephOne file version 2015.6.20.

If you can get the switches to work, you can kill the Mystic's minions then with the staff lure the Mystic into chasing you around the pillar. Run into the little room behind the room and, again with the staff, activate another of the row switches. Since the staff has a pushback effect on Mystics, you can then keep it in the room while London bridge is falling down. Now,THAT's evil.
