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.

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?

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

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????????

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.

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

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