Marathon by Best Reviewed
Tim Vogel on Dec 6th 2007
The TTEP (Total Texture Enhancement Package) is a massive package containing remakes of the original textures from the Marathon trilogy.
It replaces the original low-quality textures with new high-ress versions with a maximum size of 1024x1024 pixels. I've tried to get them as close to the originals as possible.
New in version 7.0:
Script files have been cleaned up and files have been renamed to make it more clear how to install.
All textures are now optimized .DDS files, with increased performance as well as quality!
Textures can now be scaled down in Aleph One's OpenGL settings. This also makes the TTEP a single size package, there's no longer 4 different sizes.
A lot of the textures have tiny flaws removed, some are completely redone to make them look better.
The Textures are now divided by their games, meaning you're not forced to download and use the Marathon 2 Textures when you only want the Marathon 1 replacements for example.

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 1.1:
Changes: Added M1A1 compatibility option, courtesy of thedoctor45. Instructions included.
The transmitter dish in G4 Sunbathing has been replaced with a model that doesn't suck quite as much.

M1A1 Fixes 1.0
Hopper on Jul 18th 2011
M1A1 Fixes is a plugin that makes the scenario a little closer to the original Marathon.
Notes for version 1.0:
This first version has 3 fixes:
Remove the "Pathways into Darkness" opening
Restore the BoBs' soft-death sequences
Limit the player to a single fist (sadly not the left one)
The "No PiD" plugin is not necessary or compatible with this plugin, so please uninstall or disable it before trying M1A1 Fixes.

Alpha's Redux 2.2
3371-Alpha on Feb 21st 2016
I have patched tim4i's old m1redux weapons plugin for the official Marathon. This plugin replaces the old weapon sprites with HD variants. Some textures have been refined even further from the original using GIMP to edit them. According to Tim4i, you should not unzip this file but I've found it works regardless. All credit goes to both tim4i & herecomethej2000s as this was their original work, I merely patched the file. The original licence restrictions still apply.
-You need OpenGL to run this pack.
-This plugin is for the official Marathon 1 (not M1A1).
-I did NOT get permission from tim4i to create this patch. He hasn't been online since 2012 and left no means of contact. No copyright infringement intended.
Post any glitches/problems you find here: http://pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=39240
Notes for version 2.2:
-Fixed a transparency/eraser mistake I made with the pistol that I didn't fully fix in the last revision.
-Rounded the tip of the assault rifle to make the barrel appear more realistic.
-Antialiased the fusion gun ever further.

GeoCities may be gone, but the art of the GIF lives on. All multi-frame sequences from the original Marathon Shapes file are included.
