Marathon by Monthly Downloads
General Tacticus on Nov 16th 2017
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)

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.

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.

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.

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.
fixed missing track 14

Chibi Usa Soundtrack Bonus Edition
ftg.death.rhino on Jun 5th 2013
Now you can hear the Original Marathon Soundtrack in the modern MIDI Instruments for Quicktime! Me sad though, no plugin, no MML script, just replace your Tracks folder with the new one... :'-(
Notes for version Bonus Edition:
It may not be a plugin, and it may not replace on its own, but it has some cool extra stuff, things for newcomers and things for Born on Boards!

UESC Marathon 1.0
Dodopod on Aug 26th 2011
Hopper on Jul 17th 2011
For the first time in digital quality, you can hear Marathon's music as it first shipped in 1994.
The default M1A1 tracks use QuickTime 2.5, released in 1996, which changed some of the instruments. These files were recorded with QuickTime 2.0, which shipped with Marathon, to capture what it sounded like when Bungie first released the game.

There have been a few renditions of a FloatingX for M1A1, but non of them looked like they belonged in the actual game of Marathon.
This version matches the interface of the real game, and has the same floaty goodness of FloatingX.
The screenshots are actually from Legend, and the version i captured is slightly out of date, so there may be some very very minor differences.
Finally, The Health and Oxygen bars are misaligned by one pixel... Because of this small margin, I cannot correct it. And yes, I have tried.

Trojan HUDs Pack 1.0
President People on Jul 20th 2012
Once again building off Hopper's Marathon Classic HUD, the Trojan HUDs Pack both brings the classic Trojan interface to M1A1 (Trojan HUD with M1 weapon graphics, colored radar blips), and provides the full vanilla Trojan interface in preparation for the eventual coming of M1 support. (Eventually. Though it currently works well with the Trojan Legacy Sampler!)
Who says Trojan is dead?
