Great stuff doctor! Downloading now.

And I'm tempted to say its almost piracy to sell Marathon Box Sets when its been released as freeware... Giving it out for free is what's meant to happen! Good on you doc!
If you would like to help the MaraPiD project, send me a personal message.

Hehe - see it as an act of pure self-sacrifice towards the Marathon community.
We'll see what Ryoko thinks about this -
Btw. I have announced this 2 weeks ago in another thread and I was told to upload EVERYTHING I got.

c'mon guys - don't make me hold the scrapbook hostage [MGrin]

Err, if you guys wanted the Trilogy CDs, I have them and could have made you guys a disk image if you wanted it so badly, without having to open a MINT box. Its MINT for goodness sakes. "Its no longer a collectible!" Noooooo

Well anyways, the "self-sacrifice" will not go in vain. Thank you for uploading it to the internet The Doctor. Hey while you're scanning the scrapbook, don't forget to scan the boxes and those stickers that come with the box as well. If we're going to have the software side and scrapbook, we might as well have a comprehensive database of the entire thing, and in MINT condition no less.

What would I do with a sealed Box Set? Stare at its awesomeness? - well probably I would, but I'm not spending money on this just to let it catch dust afterwards.

So you want me to scan in the stickers & the box as well huh?
The box is too big for my scanner, but I can try the stickers - one of them is reflexive, so you won't see much of it.

I have taken some pics while unpacking the box.
you can look at them over here:

that'll have to do - the Manual is included on one of the CD's.

Agreed; it's beyond me where my Scrapbook got put, and in any case it's not in the best of shape anymore D:
“People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.” —V, V for Vendetta (Alan Moore)

“The trouble is that we have a bad habit, encouraged by pedants and sophisticates, of considering happiness as something rather stupid. Only pain is intellectual, only evil interesting. This is the treason of the artist: a refusal to admit the banality of evil and the terrible boredom of pain. If you can’t lick ’em, join ’em. If it hurts, repeat it. But to praise despair is to condemn delight, to embrace violence is to lose hold of everything else. We have almost lost hold; we can no longer describe happy man, nor make any celebration of joy.” —Ursula K. Le Guin, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas”

“If others had not been foolish, we should be so.” —William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

“The law cannot protect anyone unless it binds everyone; and it cannot bind anyone unless it protects everyone.” —Frank Wilhoit

Any chance somebody could upload Myth 1 and 2, or are those still "commercial properties"? My cds got trashed through long years of constant use and stupid iomega CD-R backups decided to be decidedly non-backuping. That and my brother stole my myth 1 cd for some reaosn.

I just realized that the wrong page numbers are displayed next to each other when looking at the PDF in dual-page mode (page 2&3 instead of 1&2 etc..)
this is because I left out 2 empty pages at the front & back.

I have created a new PDF that has these 2 blank pages included - so you can now look at the scrapbook as you were meant to look at it.

grab the 36 page version over here:

Alright, stickers are up:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HHR85Y3H

one of them is heavily photoshoped because the silver surface didn't go well with the scanner.

hope you like them anyway - all three are 250dpi - you can try and print them on contact paper if you like.


if you want anything else let me know.
