    8,319 views 1 year ago
    The long-awaited rampage was promised for years, and in the last 9 months, progress really picked up. The result is something no one expected: these 16 runners have shattered all 147 levels, achieving a World Record in each and every one of them. As of 5th April (release date of Beginners), all 147 videos in this compilation are World Records.

    This section contains the expert levels. Superglue your eyelids, because we are unleashing the creme de la creme! A lot of work went into these runs, and we're certain they're some of the best out there. Be it sweet traplaunches, mind-blowing routing or the finest tightrope play you've seen in a long while, you can easily find something you'll enjoy.

    Enjoy! (with POPCORN and DRINKS and what not)


    FAQ:

    Q: The videos seem to be quite different in some cases, such as runners using different marble skins, different resolutions, UI etc.
    A: Some videos were done before PQ was released and some runners recorded themselves rather than using the .rec/.rrec formats. Once PQ was released .rrec became a requirement for all runners, and those that had videos before PQ was released could have used those. As such, several runners used different marble skins back then. Likewise PQ also progressed and UI might have changed in a few spots, but it's relatively consistent.

    Q: Which versions of the game were used?
    A: Marble Blast Platinum 1.7.42 and PlatinumQuest 2.3.5. Any other version may make some routes impossible to replicate or are easier to do. This is especially true for versions before MBP Version 1.50.

    Q: How come 3rd decimal place is used in this video's final time? I thought no one looks at it.
    A: While most don't bother, I thought it would be cool to have the third decimal place since some find it necessary. If you wish to know the final time, just deduct 123 milliseconds from the end time shown in this video, and 581 milliseconds from the Beginner-Expert times.

    Q: What tricks and techniques were used in these videos?
    A: A lot of the things seen here can be quite technical. This thread lists all the advanced techniques and more: https://marbleblast.com/ind......

    Q: Why does the marble sometimes pause for a frame or two, or sometimes wraps to different spots, and the end time changes right before the marble finishes?
    A: The .rrec system uses a marble position/rotation based system instead of the .rec input system. As this was created from the ground up, its main problem has to do with timing differences. While these are usually 1-2 frames, they are clearly visible.

    Q: The start of a lot of levels is really weird! What's going on there?
    A: PQ and the .rrec system use a half-second delay when starting in order to get a lot of things in-game working properly. Rest assured everything is fine.

    This one and the previous one are free to be used, whereas the rest of the Mindshell album requires to be purchased in order to be used in your videos. I actually considered that but decided the music hasn't worked well for majority of the soundtracks. Just a fun fact.

    Marble Blast Platinum gets shattered to the ground in this groundbreaking video. Tons of new paths, tricks, tweaks and what not combined with amazing skills provide for great entertainment.

    About Marble Blast Platinum:

    Marble Blast Platinum is a modification to Marble Blast Gold which was released in Christmas 2007. Made by a number of leading community members, it became an instant success, becoming the most known modification to the game with over 60,000 downloads to date. It takes community-created skills and gameplay and utilises them in levels which are much more difficult than Marble Blast Gold. These include levels featuring wall-hits, edge-hits, diagonal movement and other hard tricks. The beginner levels introduce the basics, before the difficulty starts going up. Additionally, players can aim to beat Platinum and Ultimate Times, which provide for an even greater challenge to those who are skilled enough. Every level contains an Easter Egg for the player to find.

    Further patches to the game added online and leaderboards capability (no multiplayer) among more options, features, bugfixes and even new sounds and music. The latest version is 1.20 for Mac (does not support leaderboards) and 1.14 for Windows. Further versions (1.21+) are currently in progress for both Windows and Mac.

    Hundreds of custom levels were since released, utilizing many of the games' features. This mod has also sparked a great interest in modding Marble Blast Gold but none have done so successfully (further seen by the lack of custom levels for these). However recent mods (PlatinumQuest, Marble Blast Fubar and Marble Blast Elite) are showing much greater capabilities than Marble Blast Platinum and are considered to be the next generation of Marble Blast mods. In this current generation, Marble Blast Platinum is undoubtedly the best and a must-have for every Marble Blast fan.

  • Marble Blast Gold Speedrun (http://speeddemosarchive.com) Play all

    Released in 2003 for the PC, Marble Blast Gold is the expansion pack to Marble Blast (a Marble Madness on steroids). To beat levels, you either go to the finish or collect gems on your way if required. Although there is no multiplayer, there are thousands of user-created levels and a few mods which keep the game alive to this day. Although most levels are easy to moderate in difficulty, a select amount of them can infuriate just about anyone. Game glitches and tricks usually savage the levels and leave people jaw-dropped.


    This playlist contains videos that were only on SDA, therefore the first WR Rampage is not featured here. Glitches and tricks are explained in the audio commentary on SDA (http://speeddemosarchive.com/MarbleBlastGold.html) and select the All Levels video. You will need a media player that can select audio tracks (in this case, tracks 2 and 3). I recommend VLC Player.

  • Marble Blast Advanced - World Record Rampage Play all

    Marble Blast Advanced is broken with some amazing gameplay. Unbelievable paths mixed with plenty of advanced tricks and amazing skills are sure to leave your mouth hanging open throughout. The lack of "learn the X" levels (as those never existed in the mod) means that you get 45 awesome levels to watch from the get-go. What are you waiting for? Go watch and enjoy!


    About Marble Blast Advanced:

    Marble Blast Advanced was inspired by the success of Marble Blast Platinum. It has been in the works for over two years, but sadly lack of contribution and time from its staff meant that it faded out with very few features inbuilt. It was eventually scheduled for release as-is in 2009, but again lack of time meant that only in September 2010 it released, becoming the second ever "full-mod" to be released to the public. Reception has been generally positive.

    Marble Blast Advanced offers a variety of levels, from short and fun to long and challenging. Skills players often need to use are diagonal movement and spin control, so these are recommended to understand before tackling this mod. Likewise, lack of checkpoints means that players should be well experienced with Marble Blast.

    Marble Blast Advanced had never received further support (except a hotfix within days of release), but works on both Windows and Mac. At this time of writing, only 6 custom levels were ever made for Marble Blast Advanced. Nonetheless, Marble Blast Advanced is still a recommended download for those who want a fresh new look for Marble Blast.
