Henseler´s Hell a map by RealRainman
Henseler´s Hell is the first and only "Marathon map" I made back in 1997. I tried to develop a detailed storyline that, although based on the familiar "I guide you through the action" concept, comes up with surprising twists and a couple of neat tricks that pushes even the experienced player to his limits. I wanted to include a lot of cool graphics (watch out for the terminals !) , and the biggest battlebot that the "Marathon" world has ever seen (I guess) !
Believe me, I used ALL the polygons,objects and entities that are possible to use in "Forge".
Notes for version 02:
Sorry guys, forgot about the fact that I uploaded here! A nice guy by the name of Greg (somehow) got in contact with me and pointed out the missing terminal pics! The HENSELER´S HELL map-file must have been corrupted years ago by copying it to a PC-file server. I was able to retrieve the original map file and it has all the terminal artwork included (which is important at some point in the story, visual hints etc.). Have fun! cheers, RealRainman

Sovereignty is my first netpack now containing 8 maps. I first released this netpack in April, 2007. I am pleased with the outcome and quality; even for the older maps.
In this final update (v1.2), I have added 1 new map, and fixed a blatant ambient sound error in The King of Infinite Space. I also managed to fix a terrible error in 50% of the maps, where the players would only spawn in one or two places throughout an entire game.
NOTE: For best results, don't use the hi-res textures.

Marathon: Pathways into Darkness Version 0.5 now available!
I am sorry it took so long to get this beta out to the public. The reason was that the MPiD Images file was giving a lot of trouble and so I have decided to replace it with a regular Infinity Images file.
If you download the beta I would love to hear your opinions and/or suggestions. I will not appreciate ugly rants but any sort of constructive criticism is VERY welcome. Please post your thoughts here or email me at: nhoad at sunbeach.net
Now, there are several problems in this beta that I am already aware of. If you have a suggestion for how to best fix them I would be happy to hear it:
Most blue in the game is transparent: This is a problem caused because of the blues used in PiD. DeepThought is indirectly helping me fix this problem. Monsters get stuck in walls or don't attack immediately: This is a mapping problem which I intend to fix as I polish the levels. Any mapping tips are welcome! There is no resting: Bobwithkeycard is helping me implement resting, for the moment there are only a set number of health potions per level. Some items are undersize or oversized Levels seem really short. This is simply a fact of PiD levels, if you move at any sort of decent speed the levels become much shorter PLAY ON NORMAL DIFFICULTY! PiD was not designed for multiple difficulty levels and neither is MPiD! Monsters on Total Carnage WILL eat you alive! You cannot go back between levels: A1 doesn't like this feature and it would be incredibly hard to implement (and not really worth it in the end). So there will be no backtracking.
Those are the big problems and I hope to fix them all. I REALLY want to hear your recommendations, opinions or even encouragement! If there are any problems in the beta (such you cannot travel between level 3 and 4) let me know and I will upload a corrected map file for the beta.
What to expect in future versions:
A completely new Images file. New high-res textures, weapons and sprites by DeepThought New LUA by bobwithkeycard (LUA which will allow resting, talking to the dead PiD style, nuclear bombs and more) Chapter screens by Phobos-Romulus All of the original PiD levels
Thank you all very much for your support and I hope you enjoy this beta until the full version of MPiD is released! Note: There is no release date so don't bother asking.
Many of the MPiD team members have come and gone over the years and I believe that myself and Patrick White are the only remaining active members of the team listed below.
Raul Bonilla Nicholas Hoad Loren Petrich JÃ?Â³hannes Gunnar Alexander Strange Tim Vogel Patrick White - Images Hugo Forss - Icons
Special Thanks: Bungie Forrest Cameranesi The Marathon Mape Making Guild Hamish Sinclair (for maintaining PiD at Bungie.org) The Aleph One Team James J Cousar Goran Svensson Claude Errera Gregory Smith (Treellama)
PS: The MPiD Team is in no way responsible for any damage caused to your computer by this beta.
PPS: I have a serious issue with crediting people, I MUST do it. If you notice anything in this beta you believe you were not credited for let me know immediately please!

cheats advanced v2 2.7E
puffindingo on Nov 27th 2012
This script is a revised version of Iamanidiot123's advanced cheats script, which is based on the original Cheats.lua released by Treellama in the Aleph One download. I have added some additional functions including hard falling damage.
Some of the functions included, like the invincibility modes, and teleportation are intended to be used for recreational solo play or the testing and debugging of maps or scenarios. Others are intended to add additional features, like the ability to heal, or falling damage. Please see the included readme file for important information.
Notes for version 2.7E:
Same as 2.7D except I fixed a typo that prevented the use of the script. Everything else is same as 2.7D.
Improvements to this version include additions to the overlay function to display the oxygen level in blue and the energy levels in red, yellow, or dark red [I haven't been able to get purple yet] depending on the energy levels.
More detailed information is included in the readme.txt file
To those who don't seem to bother actually looking at the readme or code, the first few lines of both are acknowledging the work that both TreeLlama and Iamanidiot123 did, both of whose versions are included intact with their original readmes.

Pfhorge is an OSX map making utility, as yet uncompleted but usable. There are still bugs with terminal editting and map compilation while the texturing can't be carried out in the visual interface.
I've included a manual that assumes you are already familiar with Forge.

I played XBLA with just alien weapons on this map, and to my surprise, it was the most fun multiplayer game I've ever played. That's not saying much, since, you know. You all are... You know.
Notes for version ?:
Did you know that Pi backwards is Pie? 3.14- 4=P, 1=I, 3=E. Anyway, I actually recommend playing with Dead Players Drop Items, because the minimum count of guns here is half as much as the total count.
