Rubicon - Xariim 1.0
tiloprobst on Jan 17th 2017
Originally released in 2002, "Xariim" is my solo scenario for Marathon Rubicon. 14 solo levels, one solo carnage level, three Read Me's. The (positive) review on archives.bungie.org is still up - read it if you want.
Tested with Rubicon X and Aleph One 1.2.1. Select the scenario file under Environment.
ADRESSING THE 2/5 REVIEW BELOW: Yes, it is true that this release has issues. While I don't know what the reviewer is refering to with Ataraxia being "unbeatable" (I just played through the entire package), it is true that a switch in "Closed Quarters BOB Combat" should actually be a destructable surface. As a result you can block your own progress by hitting the "switch" again. There are more similar bugs in later levels. There are other minor problems too, like some polys not having ambient sounds. That all being said, I can assure the reviewer that Rubicon Xariim was tested a lot, by me, Jane Davison and partially Christopher Lund. John Sumner vidmastered the whole thing, so you can watch him beat the Ataraxia level. The reason why these issues never got fixed is that I released the package in 2002 when I finished school. After that I was off doing the mandatory military service in Germany, so not much mapmaking going on during that time.

Chibi Usa Soundtrack Bonus Edition

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!

Are you tired of dying because you suck? Are you tired of dying because you were busy with your movement hand eating an ice cream cone? Are you tired of dying because the unskillful n00bs pwned you with h4xx0r weapons? Well fear no more! Professional Instagib is here to get rid of all of your complexity problems! Porfessional Instagib is not just any instagib mod, it has changes!!! From the creators of the MML music switch comes... Professional Instagib!
Notes for version 1.0:
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the rules and setup guide! Just because you know how this works doesn't mean you know how this works! Version 1.0 will always be available when future versions come out.

This is my first plugin uploaded to this site, it adds hi-res weapon in hand graphics to replace the original, low-res sprites with redone 3d rendered sprites.
Constructive criticism/tips are very welcome.
Notes for version 1.2:
revised the hands a bit more, added 3d weapon items.

Another Marathon-Style HUD plugin based on Hopper's Marathon Classic HUD.
This one comes courtesy of Hopper, who sent me the March 1995 issue of MaraMag, included on the second disc of the Marathon Trilogy Box Set.
The plugin is almost exactly like the Marathon Classic HUD, save for the background image, which was made by... a guy named ture. The full email address given in the article is:

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

This plugin replaces some textures with those found in the Marathon 2 Preview.
The Marathon 2 Preview was released before the Marathon 2 Demo, and contains different textures, weapons and sprites than in the full game, and in some cases, the demo.
I highly recommend that you use Marathon 2 Textures with this plugin. Aleph One 1.0 also recommended.
-- Special Thanks to Hopper for converting the M2 Preview Shapes to Aleph One Format
For more info on the M2 Preview, check out the Marathon Story Page:
Check out Hopper's converted M2 Preview Shapes on the Pfhorums:
Any questions or comments? You can contact me on the Pfhorums.
Notes for version 2.2:
v2.1 to 2.2
- Ugh, texture 010 was incorrectly named after the Preview, in which it was bitmap 23. Corrected.
v2.0 to 2.1
- I'd forgotten to convert the new textures to DDS format. They should work properly now.
v1.0 to v2.0
Completely replaced all bitmaps, using Hopper's converted M2 Preview Shapes (The screenshot method was worth it :))
Added textures 002, 003, 027, and 029

This is a superplugin for AlephOne 1.0 that lets you easily enable all the hi-res sprites and textures from the XBLA version of Marathon: Durandal with one single click. All required graphics are inlcuded- just unzip the downloaded folder into your Marathon 2 plugins directory. In addition to that, some glow- and bumpmap textures have also been included to improve visual experience and take advantage of AOs new shader features. No custom shapes files are required for this to work. Separate plugins for monsters, wall textures and weapon sprites will be released by treellama.
Notes for version 1.1.1:
Please note that this plugin will NOT function properly with previous versions of AlephOne or Marathon Infinity.
WARNING! - there has been a problem with the previous download (player graphics were missing) - I strongly suggest to everybody who downloaded v1.1. to re-download fixed v1.1.1!
