Marathon 1 Redux 0.0.13-alpha

liacrow on Jul 29th 2019

Biggergunsnearby_0036

Weekly updates 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 lua scripting, liquids, ambient sound, new weapons, more scenery, improved sprites, expanded architecture, new terms & terminal art, and the latest HD plugins. Also including Craig Hardgrove's soundtrack, you can visit his page over at themarathonmusic.com !

At this point M1R should contain a complete, playable, almost bug-free recreation of M1, however, I still consider this an alpha as there are many more features and levels to come, and other features present that will be cut.

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

WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE Marathon 1 Redux's extensive HD and 3D assets may cause 32-bit builds of Aleph One to crash immediately upon starting a game. To resolve this issue, you will have to experiment with turning off plugins or reducing texture replacement resolution to taste.

Notes for version 0.0.13-alpha:
  • Starting a new game now brings you directly to Arrival, rather than skipping though unfinished prologues
  • Currently unplayable levels are hidden from the level-select dialogue
  • Lua scripting is finding its way to several levels to control special events and functions
  • 3D models fixed so they no longer cause clipping & bloom problems, and distort less on pulsating textures
  • New texture variants, bringing the total number to 386! (including landscapes and animation frames)
  • Most levels updated to greater and lesser degrees to take advantage of the new textures
  • AI variant terminal textures applied to every terminal - e.g., a Leela terminal says LEELA on it in-world
  • Differentiated solid and liquid lava, and to a lesser degree, goo
  • New epilogue level (thanks to Pfhorrest for letting me re-use some Eternal geometry)
  • A new defensive twist to Pfhoraphobia to balance out its new Lua scripting
  • Updates to Arrival, The Rose, Welcome to the Revolution, Try Again, Beware of Low-Flying Defence Drones
  • The first Pfhor terminal
  • Pfhor fighter sprites optimised for bloom
  • Revised Vidmaster's Oath
  • Newly spawned players start with plot-appropriate weapons, at the expense of ammo
  • Low resolution fallback if you disable the 3072p landscape plugin
  • Lots of bugfixes in general, thank you to everyone who reported problems!
  • Much saner organisation overall
  • Probably more because it's been 9 months since 0.0.12!

Known bugs *A mutant pfhor teleports into space and BoBs clog corridors in the epilogue level, both fixed in weelky release *Flamethrower is wonky *Player's light is too dark, fixed in weekly release

M1A1 Original Teleport Fader (plugin) 1.0

willbill808 on Mar 12th 2019

In the original Marathon 1 game for Macintosh, there is a white screen flash fader that happens when you teleport in. I created a .lua script to emulate this behavior. Installation instructions included.

Notes for version 1.0:

This is an initial version that works perfectly fine most of the time. However, if you manage to shoot yourself across a map at a high rate of speed (i.e. from a rocket), that may falsely trip the teleport detector.

Eupfhoria - Marathon Soundtrack Remake 1

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.

Notes for version 1:

First release.

Upscaled Weapons for M1 1.0

Flippant Sol on Jul 4th 2018

16

A similar scaled texture pack as "xBR Monsters for M1", but this is for M1's weapons and the algorithm is slightly different.

I would recommend leaving linear filtering on to smooth out the textures.

Notes for version 1.0:

Shouldn't be any incompatibilities with other plugins.

Marathon Music Remasterd 2.0

Screen_shot_2015-06-29_at_2

The music that is shipped with the Marathon release is based off of the classic Quicktime synth. This is the fed through fluidsynth which utilized a modern sample set — in this case, Don Allen's Timbres of Heaven. All tracks have been normalized and made working for in-game.

To install, simply replace the Music folder within the Marathon data folder

Notes for version 2.0:

-A new attempt utilizing Timbers of Heaven 3.4 and the latest fluidsynth.

Flippant Sol on Nov 19th 2017

34

Marathon 1 monster textures at 16x the original resolution using xBR scaling. Includes marine textures and every color palette.

Credits:

  • General Tacticus, who helped me index M1's original shapes file
  • Treellama, who helped me use Aorta to remove blue from the textures
  • Hawkynt, who created the program that could batch upscale 2,602 textures, and
  • Hyllian, who created the xBR 4x scaling algorithm
Notes for version 1.3:
  • Added some missing textures
  • Reverted back to original algorithm
  • Quality-of-life improvements

3D scenery for M1 1.2

General Tacticus on Nov 16th 2017

Leo_screen

Replaces the 2d scenery sprites with 3d models in Marathon 1

Note: works best in shader mode.

Make sure bloom is turned off!

Obviously some errors can't be avoided, but I have done my best to smooth over as many bumps as possible.

Notes for version 1.2:

-Replaced the escape pod model with a much better one

-Changed the pfhor egg to be more like the original (an egg)

Marathon over Tau Ceti E-I Landscape Texture 8192x3072 3.0

liacrow on Sep 17th 2017

Arrival_0000

This 360° wrap-around starscape replacement shows the stars as they would appear in the Tau Ceti system on July 3, 2794 at 0839 UTC, as well as a few local objects likely to be visible.

The stars, colony, and positions of planets have been rendered by Celestia, the open-source universe explorer. Using data on the planets known to be orbiting Tau Ceti, I made a few tweaks within real parameters to make things more comfy for our Martian colonists.

Remember the pink-brown planet from the Pfhor chapter screen? It's now an ice giant around which the colony orbits. Or is it a water giant? Celestia says it's 40F up there. Whatever, it's like Uranus, execpt smaller, warmer, and not sideways.

The huge blue planet is the colony moon, 1300 km below. I tried to put the Marathon in as high an orbit as possible while still being close enough to be an easily reached space station.

You can easily find Sol in the screen shot from G4 Sunbathing. It's just above and to the left of the right gantryway, or just below and to the right of Arcturus, slightly brighter than the surrounding stars.

On Marathon levels, your point of view will be from the Marathon's surface. The Scoutship will be part of the backdrop, while the scenery item is replaced by the unused slave transport sprite. On Pfhor levels, you view from an alien ship surface, and the Marathon sprite has been enhanced.

Software used: 1 - Gravitation to find a stable orbit for the moon, 2 - Celestia to produce renders, 3 -Hugin to stitch them together into a panorama, 4 - GIMP for postprocessing and Marathon's surface texturing.

To install, please drop the zip file into your appropriate plugins folder. Also, make sure that in Preferences > Graphics > Rendering Options, that "Replacement Texture Quality" for Landscapes is set to "Unlimited."

Notes for version 3.0:

-New landscape for Pfhor levels -Corrected star orientation on Pfhor levels -Removed floating Marathon logo -Restored & enhanced Marathon sprite -Shortened plugin UI name -Fixed Windows compatibility (I hope)

General Tacticus on Jul 14th 2017

This is a version of the Marathon 1 Hd Weapons Pack that has been made compatible with the old M1A1 release.

As such, this will not work with current versions of aleph one, using the original files.

All credit for making this compatible with M1A1 goes to to Thedoctor45.
