This is a set of folder icons for the Marathon trilogy games. It also includes background folder images as well. Currently available for the Mac OS. Non-Mac users, use them with caution as I don't know how well it'll work out for other platforms.

I don't know if these are available elsewhere nowadays, but the copy available at "http://files3.bungie.org/trilogy/MarathonRED.zip" has incomplete mml.
So, here are some mml tags to make your copy more like the original Marathon RED. A few things are changed slightly; those are marked with a <!-- --> tag.
Notes for version 2:
When previously editing this for upload, I carelessly omitted the </marathon> closure. Oops, I'm an idiot and a shame to the Nakh legacy.
Also a few small changes to blankspace or comment tags.

Almost Transparent Blue beta 1.1
Exy on Aug 14th 2020
Almost Transparent Blue is a single level for Marathon Infinity with an emphasis on intense close quarters combat and creative use of Marathon's air movement.
I first began work on this level because I kept worrying about how the kind of combat I enjoyed would be received by the wider community. I created this level to indulge the kind of fight design I enjoy, where concepts like bullet herding and crowd manipulation come into play and the player is surrounded by enemies. Over time I decided I wanted to find the elements of challenge gameplay that are unique to Marathon's mechanics and aren't possible to recreate in other classic fps games.
If this understandably isn't appealing to you Easy and K should offer a relaxing experience for the most part.
Total Carnage is balanced for my enjoyment. Maybe you will enjoy it too :)
Due to a bug with raised dynamic limits, currently trying to load saves from this map after quitting the A1 application will crash A1. To fix this, begin a new game on the map, then exit to the main menu and load your save.
may require Aleph One 1.3 as I haven't tested with 1.2 and don't know when dynamic limits were changed. additionally software mode will experience some visual bugs with invisible liquids.
Notes for version beta 1.1:
tweaked player starting position to make the jump to AR easier without straferunning, tweaked item placement in final area to give the player a better cue for when to shoot at the beginning, hopefully fixed a monster bugging out in the same area

HD monsters for alephone. These were generated with Topaz Gigapixel AI upscaling, with some automatic processing to correct colors and smooth the edges of the sprites. Also, a bit of manual editing was done to remove black outlines from a couple monsters that had thick black outlines. The Bob and marine faces end up looking very weird with gigapixel, so I've included the Bobs and marines from Treellama's ML Super Res Monsters plugin, so that this is a complete and usable plugin. The gigapixel monsters are scaled up 4x, while the Bobs and marines are 3x.
This plugin should be good enough to use as-is, but I'm sure there are opportunities to do more manual cleanup and tweaking to make them even better (particularly making fighter staves more consistent between frames). If the community is willing to help out, let me know in discord, and I can provide the png masters for editing: https://discord.gg/c7rEVgY.
Notes for version 1.0:
- Adds glow maps
- Uses TL's ML Super Res Bobs and Marines, as gigapixel did not do a good job with them.
- Manually removed some black borders in cases where they were very thick.

Like with the Marathon Red mml which I uploaded recently, the mml included in "http://files3.bungie.org/trilogy/MarathonEvil.zip" is not the same as if you were playing the original Marathon Evil.
In this case, it is very different.
For example: the assault rifle in Evil was a “MOW-MDN/36CM ASLT-WPN”, not an “MA-90E”.
Those other names have been distributed for years, ever since Aleph One SDL was a new thing … does nobody else here play with the authentic Evil mml? Pardon me if I don't know whether some other total conversion named the fists a pair of “steel manacles”, and that the person making the old mml was confused, or whether they decided to invent new names when they wrote those old mml files.
So, if you wish to play Marathon Evil with the original text strings, you'll need to completely replace the "Evil Strings.mml" file which was included in the aforementioned "MarathonEvil.zip" package.
When you do replace the old mml with this one, there is one more thing you'll need to do: either rename the "Music.ogg" file to "Music Accursed.ogg" or change the string with index="10". In this mml file, the strings for default filenames were made for those who have all their scenario assets together in the same folder with the Marathon Aleph One executable a-k-a app. Those of us who do so disable individual mml by moving files to a different folder where Marathon Aleph One doesn't load them. You gain more flexibility with your scenarios if you do so, and you only need to ensure that filenames do not conflict.

Narrow Mountain Path is a weaponless platforming map combining tricks that let the player climb stairs higher than .33 WU and regular fast precision platforming. If a player gains a bit of height off the ground they can put their feet within .33 WU of a higher ledge and climb it, again giving them extra height they can use to climb subsequent steps. Using air control you can also steer off and onto a ledge so that you gain a height boost as if you were climbing a step which makes longer than normal horizontal jumps possible.
Despite the special trick emphasis I've tried to make this a flowy fun map to play through without falling or speedrun. Included in this download is a speedrun film and a film showing some more beginner friendly routes. A second version of the map with 3x health and an AR can be reached with level skip for more speedrun fun.
Straferunning is required to beat this map. To strafe run, press your forward + left or right strafe key to move faster at a slight diagonal.

If the BoBs had a rocket launcher they'd make someone pay
-BOBBQ: Toast as many BoBs as you can
-THEY'RE EVERYWHERE: Kill as many BoBs as you can with only a pistol and one life
-TRAITOROUS PIGS: Kill different BoBs to gain stat boosts. Then face your fellow security officers with your new powers.

This is a Marathon 2 wall texture plugin intended for people that like the look of the original textures, but want more detail than 128x128 textures allow. Most HD textures available make fundamental changes, and I've tried hard to avoid doing that with these.
These were created with AI upscaling, and I did some small touch ups to certain textures to try to get rid of anything odd. Many textures are probably still not perfect, but the hope is they look the way they're supposed to, and are still improvements over the originals.
Notes for version 1.2:
1.2: Sharper, more detailed textures. Fixed some of the textures where upscaling did weird things due to excessive dithering.
1.1: Color corrections to some textures
