Default Encyclopedia of Secrets (Videos) *Spoilers*

Videos Here

I went through the game and recorded each of the secrets for those who are having trouble finding a specific one. The "You have found a secret" thread is confusing to sort through, so I figured this should help. I didn't list any credits since I found all the secrets on my own, save for two.

Note: Currently as I type this I have (and we have) only found 43 out of 44 secrets. Either there is a bug in the last level or we have yet to discover the final secret. Some have noticed that when you do the secret on the final level, the count jumps from 1 to 2 when you enter the opening and closing door, yet the "You have found a secret!" message does not appear. When you get to the last dopefish, it then displays this message and does not increase the count from 2 to 3. So either the count is displayed early, or there is a bug. Hopefully a dev can confirm if this is a bug, or if we haven't found it yet. But obviously if it is not a bug, don't give away the location of the final secret!

Enjoy!

That's cool, does this include videos of the secrets which aren't listed and can only be reached via no clip? Apparently there's loads of them that aren't listed and can only be reached by no clip.

No, this only includes the secrets that the stats keep track of.

ertertwert: I really like the idea. Let me add one suggestion. Why not simply add ingame .dem files to your page? Would be a very small size and everybody could download and use them in Emergence.

record demoname
stopdemo
The .dem files are located in the "...\sin episodes emergence\SE1" folder.

That's how I recorded them. I just fraps'ed the demos for ease of use. I'll upload the .dem's but I think it's a pain to have to go in-game to view them.

Good to hear. I know a lot of people have already found all the secrets, but I was hoping a few would use this.

Well, we finally have the verdict about the "final" secret.

Looks like we've found them all.

I thought the whole secret thing was a bit lame - too Quake-ish. Also, what is the benefit of finding them all? Apart from telling everyone here that is! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] If there was some sort of incentive for finding them I would've made more effort to find them but as it was, it added nothing to the game I thought.

I personally loved finding them. A lot of the secrets are actually easter eggs, which by definition IS the point of finding them. The other misc secrets are just throw-backs to the good old-school days.

And how could being Quake-ish be a bad thing? It's something to be proud of. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
Of course the secret areas in first person shooters go all the way back to Wolfenstein 3D.

None for fiding all, but there are plenty of useful rewards for each.
There are special +100 health upgrades which can pump your health up all the way to 200 on these maps:
se1_docks01
se1_docks04
se1_u4lab01
se1_u4lab02
se1_u4lab04
se1_pit01
se1_pit02
se1_highrise01
se1_highrise03
se1_finale01

And there is the very special secret on the last level with the very special reward. Those were what I found the most "useful."
Some are more about being funny rather than useful, which are, doh, FUN!

For you, perhaps. It sure added a lot of extra value for me, and was the primary reason I played through the game a second time.

I downloaded them twice, as I accidentally trashed the first copy.

I remember the dopefish... Good times playing Commander Keen as a kid. Mmm... DOS...

The dopefish has been in how many games as an easter egg now? A dozen?
