    The Rambo Challenge: Revisited

    Way back in June when everyone was bored of Sigma, there was the rambo challenge. What did you have to do? Simple: complete a mission solo on insane. The original was just for Sigma, and all of the campaign was done except for Observation.

    The Original Rambo Challenge

    So here we go again, this time for Ortega and some custom maps.

    Rules
    1) You may not use any roof hax, but other mapping exploits are allowed.
    2) You may take another marine and suicide him at the start of the mission if it requires a tech, but you can't use any of their equipment. It is only for if there is a hack tool in the map, or if you can get past an area without hacking.
    3) You may take another marine and suicide him at the start of the mission if there is a second place to spawn, but you can't use any of their equipment. It is only so you can start in the preferred spawn location.
    4) You need a demo of the run, and a screenshot of the end screen showing difficulty and marines used.
    5) No cheating obviously.
    6) Single mission only.
    7) In missions where 2 players are allowed, you may either take a bot, or play with another player. Both must survive.
    8) Telic equip is only allowed on Telic maps (and maps released after the Telic campaign)
    9) I may change the rules at any time.

    For how to play and record demos read the FAQ. Some screenshots and demos are no longer available because the hosting is gone. If you are after something please PM me and I'll see if I have it.

    I'd better see all of them completed by at least one person! Good luck

    Just done Ort2-Engineering, and got a perfect. Check first post for demo/screenshot.

    The easier ones are Engineering, WeaponFacility and probably Cargo, so hurry if you want those.

    that's because you can't set the difficulty to hard on the tutorial

    Yes, I have just realised this.

    If anyone wants to see it, I could make an avi, otherwise I'll do it again. But getting a perfect again is proving tricky.

    You really can't. Before Faith, there's the barrel that explodes, and it would kill Crash/Wildcat, and you couldn't get through the room that needs 3 marines

    Weapon Facility on Insane is IMPOSSIBLE.The big bug in the beginning takes too long to kill so since its as fast as a normal bug it will reach u and kill u in one to two hits depending on your health its impossible i tell you.

    I have the goods for Cargo and Wep Fac...who shall I send them to, to see my name in lights?

    And yeah...anyone who does LC on insane wins at life. Period.

    And ya know...I can't help but think there's another map that might be a swell contender for this 'rambo challenge' of yours...

    I hereby claim AO-Ort5-Navigation for Spain.

    The situation: It was an insane mission, but Wildcat and Crash had no fear. No fear...But Crash (who smartly brought a P-rifle and no secondary or extra equipment) had a previously undiagnosed case of SHAS, or, Sudden Heart Attack Syndrome. Wildcat, thinking it was some crazy alien virus, vowed, "They'll pay for this!"

    1. Wildcat used her flamer to great effect, vengeance for Crash burning in her eyes .

    2. Though seriously wounded, Wildcat fearlessly traded blows with the queen she.

    3. "Only took one try," said Salsa.

    I have a (Freecam \ First person) demo, but sucky upload speed, no real host, and it's just like, 4 out of 9 minutes of melee'ing the queen she. I'll get it to someone if they insist.

    I thought it would be too hard, but if you think you can do it, I'll add it to the list.

    Salsa and Moses: I want demos! (give it to me on IRC, or email me).

    In an undreamable team-up, Moses and Salsa complete Flight Deck. I, of course, did all the work, and Moses died.
    There was some worry over Moses's death disqualifying, but I don't see anywhere in the rules that you need total survival. Am I correct?

    Hilarious demo with chatting and pop culture (well, not so pop) references intact soon to be available. (After I get it to Carth)

    Better read the rules again. If one of you dies then the "solo" mission has failed.

    Uh...huh. You just edited them a few minutes ago, and unlike Wildbill's TurfWars3, there's no rule that states you can change the rules at any time.

    Alright, just this once, you can have it. But from now on that rule applies

    I am now so happy that we followed the rules before you changed them. Twice.

    You really do have to tell us when you changed them guy... because each line you changed, there has to be a date and time when changed log thingy majigger right next to it. So that way, if someone completes it prior to your rules being changed, they still get to make happy in their pants.

    SomeDude - Aha! I beat all of them on insane solo! no cheats! but I died a few times

    SomeOtherDude - Read the Rules again, you can't die once.

    SomeDude - WTF, I didn't see that! you changed it you stupid assclown!

    SomeOtherDude - So what? I can change them whenever I want.

    How did he complete them if he died?

    You can't die twice either... mission failed, time to retry.

    Good demo of FlightDeck. I liked the arguing, and the whole 'you're only here because I can't push that switch by myself' feeling I got from Salsa. The odd couple.

    I was watching them do Ort4.

    They failed miserably, lasting a mere 1110 frames on one try, and a pathetic 3k on another.

    (Divide that by 24 to get the seconds... 24 frames per second = real-life )

    Exo fails to mention that when we fail miserably, we still do far better than he or his mother could ever hope to do. Cheers

    P.S. Just did Bug City...upload soon...and Wep Fac...when Carth gets around to speed watching all 20 minutes of it
