High Quality Hats off to 819 video guide
 
This is a High res Video guide made by me (Recon Squadron, aka Shadows Demise). My purpose for making this was because of the lack of a decent quality video guide for this achievement. For maps of MOST of the terminals use this link if you still find yourself troubled -> http://marathon.bungie.org/spoiler/m2/index.shtml
Also, If you are having trouble just completing the game use this link-> http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=12114240


And just an FYI for those trying to get vidmaster, here is the best method: Start up a Co-op game with a buddy, start from big house' make sure it is on total carnage difficulty (doesn't matter if you die in co-op you have unlimited respawn) make sure you kill all the bobs (not tricky most are obvious except for one hidden bob shown below)

Now last but not least make sure you punch/shoot all SWITCHES (it's okay to press A on doors,health and oxygen regens) When you activate the last terminal 'BeeBoop'... Achievement Unlocked Vidmaster.
Well thats it for the difficult achievements,
Recon

Wow. Just wow. I went through this game once and didn't get the achievement even though I was using a checklist. This looks absolutely awesome. My only suggestion would've been to show the map when you're standing in front of each terminal to help people narrow down where they are. That being said, you shouldn't have any trouble once you're in the level. I'm going to use this this weekend to go back through the game and try to get that elusive achievement (and even out my gamerscore again!). Thanks for all of the effort that you've put into this.

I'd Like to have this under the achievement's guide section for hats off if you know how... much appreciated,
Shadows Demise

That can likely be arranged. I'm using the videos to go for Hats of to 819 right now. As soon as I confirm that it works, I can upload them to the main site.

Can "Hats off to 819" be done in co-op?

Taz148 04-26-2009 08:48 PM

Thanks dude.:Bounce:

Taz148 04-26-2009 09:27 PM

How come your guide only shows 80 terminals?
I thought there was 83 in all.

Shadows Demise 04-27-2009 12:33 AM

i'm 99 percent sure thats all of them... if not thats why i have the map in the post too as a failsafe just in case of error on my part.

ChiefBurner_3_SE 05-03-2009 08:28 PM

Speaking of which I've located just about every terminal in your video guide but still no achievement. Could someone be so ikind and help me find the ones I must have overlooked somehow?? Could loading your game after you've found a terminal ERASE your find or am I simply missing some terminals that I somehow overlooked????????

ChiefBurner_3_SE 05-04-2009 03:07 AM

NVM I used the video guide and the Marathon spoiler website and got the achievement, I think the vid guide help more I think, not too long ago so the video guide pretty much works thank god. Your video guide was awesome by the way.

Shadows Demise 05-17-2009 02:45 AM

so my guide did help you get your achievement?

Which terminal were you missing?

mutantkilla 06-11-2009 03:16 PM

can anyone confirm which terminals are missing from the video guide. because im not sure if my achievement glitched on me

Cheesegod 06-11-2009 04:16 PM

Wow dude, thats awesome! I can tell you spent a lot of time on that.

Hats of to uh... you!

Tarvu 06-22-2009 02:09 PM

That was a magical 21G unlock, I thought I'd never see it!

Using these videos with the maps and other sources works well. But people going for it must remember to quit to the game menu to save terminal progress, progress is not stored when you save.

MathGuy42 08-25-2009 02:54 PM

I found this page very helpful for finding all the terminals.

I think everything's there, but I can't guarantee it.

Finally, a really good guide for this achievement. I'll post when I get it.

Jack Knows 02-27-2013 11:42 AM

Awesome guide. I used it and I got the achievement first try.
