Latest Updates and Submissions
W'rkncacnter on Feb 16th 2019
This is a full port of the 1993 mac game "Pathways Into Darkness" by Bungie to the Aleph One engine.
Note: You must use the latest beta version of Aleph One for this to work correctly. It is currently version 1.3b2 and can be found here: https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/releases
This is a little different from a typical marathon scenario, as it features:
- Levels that can be re-visited multiple times with their state preserved.
- Advanced inventory for carrying and using many items.
- Resting to heal.
- Use of crystals to use special powers, along with conventional weapons.
- RPG elements.
- An ending score based on how you do while playing the game.
Make sure to read the readme for important information about controls. There are some non-obvious things you need to be aware of when playing the game. If you get stuck, there is a link to some Youtube videos in the readme that can be used as a guide.

The bigliest scenario available now has the bigliest textures imaginable to go with it! If you've ever wanted to experience Mararthon: Yuge with mindblowing 128x128 HD textures, this is your lucky day.
Just when you thought Yuge couldn't look any better, it's now possible to turn on bloom and see limitless glowing peppers, douches, failstaches and more. The choice is yours!
This unbelievable package contains 2 different plugins with varying amounts of bloom, and 5 different texture masks to put you in control of your Yuge experience.
These plugins even work with Marathon Infinity, if you ever feel like replaying it with superior textures.

Mararthon: Yuge 1.2
W'rkncacnter on Dec 21st 2018
Mararthon: Yuge is a 30 level scenario, plus 225 secret levels for many extra hours of gameplay.
Yuge is a community project that was created in 2017 with procedural level generation using rooms that were mapped by hand. Mappers contributed rooms of various design and size, which were then fed into the level generator, which created the overall level layouts, texturing, monster placements, items, and sounds. Therefore, you will see some of the same rooms multiple times while playing through the scenario, but each will likely have a different set of monsters in slightly different locations, different textures, and you will likely have different weapons.
The level generator was created by W'rkncacnter, and 353 unique mapped out areas were contributed by several mappers: Windbreaker, RyokoTK, Sankara, W'rkncacnter, President People, $lave, General Tacticus, Glamdring, and Adminn_1.
Yuge has 2 new weapons, 2 new boss monsters, new wall textures, new scenery objects, maps with precipitation, and a new liquid type. Along with the procedurally generated levels, the final level of the main scenario, "enter the DOUCHE", is a custom map created by Windbreaker.

Keep and eye out for a URL within the secret levels where you can download even more bonus maps.

This is a project that a group of map makers have been working on for a while. It is a fitting tribute to the Marathon community and its players. Huge thanks to Aaron, aka The Man, and Spooky for helping me with item placement and the making of special maps. These maps are each made for specific people in mind, and are named after who they were designed for. This is a 12 level net map pack meant for 8 players. The maps are for Wrkncacnter, asdkzx123, windbreaker, slyfennecfox, fenrick, Captain Jteg, raptor200221, Spooky, Aaron, Adminn_1, EDDIE DINGLE, and Zuranthus.

This is a set of 2304 Mararthon: Yuge style single player maps. There is pretty much no plot on any of these maps, it purely exists for killing monsters.
If you are unfamiliar with Mararthon: Yuge, it can be downloaded at http://simplici7y.com/items/mararthon-yuge.
The maps can all be played with the Mararthon: Yuge scenario (recommended) or Marathon Infinity.

- Yuge Bigly 2: Electric Doogaloo - Explore the Doog District of INFINITYS with 50% chance of doogstorms and 50% chance of SPOOKYdoogs.
- One Weapon Edition - There is only one type of weapon that spawns on these maps. Shitsticks required.
- All Weapons Edition - All weapon types can spawn on each map, instead of only 3.
- Hardcore Edition - Less health than normal Yuge maps. For people that want a challenge.
- JIHADIC-1 - All maps have either rain or JUICEstorms.
- Roguelike Edition - Pattern buffers are removed and each exit teleports you 1-10 levels forward.
- Spinal Tap Edition - More health, ammo, and monsters.
- Wuss Edition - More health and ammo. For super casual gameplay.
Notes for version 1.3:
- Fixed terminals to make it work with newer versions of AlephOne.

Eupfhoria - Marathon Soundtrack Remake
Eupfhoria is a fully re-instrumented and re-scored soundtrack mod for the first Marathon. This replacement tries to remaster the original soundtrack while retaining the original feel. It IS the tracks you know and love, as it's based off the original MIDI files. Most tracks should fuller and more atmospheric, hopefully a bit like Marathon's younger brother, Halo.
To see if this is for you without downloading, you can stream it all here: Eupfhoria - Full Album Stream
Installation is simple, just replace your Music folder found in the Marathon directory. Backup your original folder if you want to go back to the originals.
NOTE: Don't use this for your first playthrough. Really. This is for people who've played through it before and want a new experience. Updating those pesky textures is one thing, but save this for your second playthrough.

Google Re-Captcha has shut down and so the registration page is no longer working. I have the code to remove it, but won't be able to access the server until Monday. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Marathon 1 Redux 0.0.12-alpha
liacrow on Oct 1st 2018
Latest releases now on Github: https://github.com/ravenshining/M1R
A project to give Marathon 1 a facelift, incorporating the new features of Aleph One to flesh out and add realism to the Marathon's architecture. Eventually, to include a branching storyline- possibly even missions on the colony moon.
Featuring Marathon 1 with liquids, ambient sound, new weapons, more scenery, improved sprites, expanded architecture, new terms & terminal art, the latest HD plugins. Also including Craig Hardgrove's soundtrack, you can visit his page over at themarathonmusic.com !
Although it is now a playable scenario, I still consider this an Alpha release for development and testing, but at this stage you may find it more entertaining than, and in some respects more faithful than M1A1. To contribute to this project, download it and read the "Help Wanted.txt" and/or TODO.txt," or head over to the Pfhorums where the lists and discussion are posted: http://pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=53510
Notes for version 0.0.12-alpha:
M1-style Rescue missions now work! We don't have the branching storyline yet, but you WILL get different terminal messages on The Rose and Bob-B-Q if you succeed or fail to save 50% of the BoBs. A big thanks to Treelama for patiently explaining how this works and releasing a new version of Weland to eliminate the need for hex editing!
M1-style activation triggers! Every level has been gone over to restore Glue activation mechanics for all non-teleporting monsters. Not only does this make M1R replicate M1 activation, but BoBs may freely roam the levels (provided you don't kill them) instead of being confined and/or glitching behind zone borders as in M1A1. A yuge thank-you to Wrkncacnter for writing a Weland plugin that streamlined this process!
The ridiculously-slow-on-early-levels shock staff mechanic has been scaled way back as it was not fun. Instead, early levels have you hitting monsters with the staff as a fragile but highly effective melee weapon - complete with it's own HD animation - until exposition is delivered via terminal on how to operate it properly.
As with 0.0.11, please note that if you command-option- or control-shift- begin new game, only levels 1-37 are playable. Levels 38-99 are redundancies for the planned branching storyline, and do not yet have physics, terminals, or MML. Levels 101-119 are multiplayer carnage.
The flamethrower now obscures your vision as it should when using the HD weapons plugin.
Architectural updates to seven levels (Never Burn Money, The Rose, Blaspheme Quarantine, Shake Before Using, Pfhor Your Eyes Only, Unpfhorgiven, & Try Again).
Lava and Goo should be generally shallower (more like M1) and emits noise to eliminate abrupt sonic transitions.
Welcome level removed and replaced with a placeholder, the goal being to have a populated spaceport and functional Mirata for 0.0.13.
More terminal exposition
