This plugin is a port of the Durandal XBLA interface to Aleph One. Compatible with Marathon 2 and Infinity, and included in the all-in-one downloads of those games.
Added support for Visual Mode.lua. This version was included with all-in-one downloads of Aleph One 1.1.
It's been a while. Back in 2007-2008 I created a game based on the Aleph One engine as part of a graduation project. It's quite outdated but I've had several request from people asking me to upload it here, so here it goes :)
"Blauwe Vingers' Is a Dutch translation of "Blue Fingers". It's a game about the medieval history of a city in the Netherlands called "Zwolle" in 1524.
The project has about a full year of work into it and was completely done by 5 people. Areas in the game are build after city blueprints and the story is based on real historical events. While it offers quite a campaign and large amount of content, please be aware that the game is completely in Dutch language. This unfortunately makes it almost impossible to complete it when you do not understand the language. I simply couldn't find the time to translate everything into English, as there are countless of in-game conversation, history texts, videos and whatnot.
Still, it's definitely worth to check it out (also if you're a scenario creator yourself). Many features in the game were things never done before back in 2008 with Aleph One. Later in 2010 the game received an updated to support normal maps, a floating HUD and other improvement that were later introduced to the Aleph One engine.
Note: I cannot guarantee that the game is still fully functional with the latest Aleph One features. I've quickly tested it with the latest Aleph One build on my Mac and it seems to be working great, but as I haven't updated it since 2010, there might be new or altered features in the engine that are not supported.
Features: - Story driven level progression with about 19 maps based on historical areas and events. - Unique use of Aleph One features such as normal maps, post-processing effects, in-game videos, 3D scenery objects etc. - Total conversion, with countless of new characters, medieval weapons and environments. - Full multiplayer support with 10 unique multiplayer maps. - Graphics that push the engine to it's limits. - Think you've mastered Marathon's melee fists? Try the flail, dual wielding axes or daggers :)
Story: As the Dutch are known for their trade; 3 cities (Kampen, Zwolle and Deventer) in the North-east of the Netherlands form an important and strategic trade area in 16th century. However, there was also a lot of rivalry between the cities which almost escalated into a war, but mostly resulted in bullying, sabotage and name calling. After the duke of Zwolle "Karel van Gelre" was banned from the city in 1524 for treating the people badly, he later came back with an army to lay siege on the city for 30 days. Food and supplies were running out but just when everything seemed to be lost, Zwolle got help from unexpected Allies. The neighbour cities "Kampen" and "Deventer" assisted resulting in a major battle right outside the city and the people were set free.
The player plays as a poor student who has to find a study and place to stay in the city and ends up becoming a war hero with a duel between you and the duke as the final battle!
Recommended requirements: - Mac Os X 10.5 or later - 2GB free disk space - Intel Mac with 2ghz processor or better - 1GB of system memory
So, because of some discussion in the Pfhorums I decided to make a few 7 polygon netmaps. I don't really play any netmaps so they might be terrible even beyond what you'd expect from a 7 polygon map.
There are 7 maps plus an alternate version of 1 map as well as a doc with a small backstory for each map. And if you download right now you'll get an 8th bonus map FREE!!!
EasyShade contains functions for automating the lighting of Aleph One levels. It is intended to aid mapmakers in conjunction with their usual lighting techniques. EasyShade currently includes these functions (all parameters are optional):
sunlight(contrast, manual\_sun\_angle, cumulative) for simulating a directional light source that affects all surfaces and does not cast shadows
roomlight(brightness, floor\_threshold, ceiling\_threshold, radius) for assigning a brightness to an entire room at once
pointlight(brightness, max\_radius) for simulating a point light source where the player is standing (calculations done in 2D)
darken() and lighten() for nudging the brightness of the room you're in up or down. These functions are tied to the previous and next weapon keys, so you can make an adjustment by pressing one key instead of typing out a function call.
pavelight(brightness) for applying a single brightness to all surfaces in the entire level
resetlights() for restoring a level to its original lighting levels
Major update, now with wholly different types of automated lighting.
This is twice as good as the single player skull script because it works in double player.
Either person in game can hit the microphone button to give both players some serious skullz.
GeoCities may be gone, but the art of the GIF lives on. All multi-frame sequences from the original Marathon Shapes file are included.
Simple lua script where the player will take damage from a significant fall, adapted from Cheat.lua, also allows jumping with the microphone key and plays sounds from large falls.
Known Bugs - If player falls from a significant height in media the players damage is delayed until leaving the media.
Made this shapes file really quickly in ShapeFusion, they hopefully will interest someone who did not find MI's default color palette for players to be to their liking.
I would do this for M2 as well, but the HD players are just too nice, and recoloring them would kill me. Although if there is a way to recolor them instantly, it would be much appreciated to know.
They change the type of projectiles of weapons (like usual) and the damage and speed of those projectiles! XD
hope u enjoy! plz rate and comment! =D

Added a recharge. Retextured an unaligned wall. Maybe this'll merit a review if someone sees it.

This is a pack of 3 Lua gametypes that I created. Last Man on the Hill, Elimination and Hill Elimination. The readmes are included with each gametype, so you know the rules and how they each work.
Turns out this crap wasn't on Simplici7y.
This is a script, physics model, and shapes file that, when all are loaded, simulates being a drone (IMPORTANT: Make sure the map you are using doesn't have a physics model merged). Use the mic key (spacebar is good) to move and look up or down to change altitude. when the mic key is off, you are stationary and cannot move. Use the cycle weapons forward and backward to dodge right and left (dodging is pretty buggy at the moment, working on a solution). The more repair chips you have (uplink chips), the faster you will regenerate health. The drone bolts you fire have a homing system that homes towards the last enemy you aimed at (to turn this off, open the script and set "enabled" to "false"). I'm working on making this multiplayer, but for now that is totally a NO. KNOWN BUGS: when you land on the floor, you usually are stuck there and cannot go up again, but you can still move around on the level you are at (if you go off a ledge or go up a level (floor-wise) you'll be able to take off again).
Once I'll be satisfied with how this one turns out, I'll move on to a juggernaut one.
By popular demand, the The M1 Map Conversion Project has been rebooted.
Starting now, all further releases of converted M1 maps will be realized as "Netpacks" of ten (10) maps each, and with M1A1 physics merged.
In this Netpack:
The enclosed Read Me contains convenient links to all the current versions of M1A1 (the "Special Edition" release), its hi-res textures, and other assorted items.
"Hats-off" to the old-time Marathoners who started it all.
