A set of remastered sounds for AOPID: http://simplici7y.com/items/aleph-one-pathways-into-darkness
These are 6 dB quieter than the originals (an attached text file explains why), but also significantly less noisy, much crisper due to the addition of higher frequencies that were absent from the originals, and in some cases free of substantial audio flaws like 60 Hz hum on a lot of the Headless sounds or digital clipping distortion on some of the explosion and weapon sounds.
Note that most of these are not exact reconstructions of the missing audio data, but best guesses that I put together in iZotope RX5 Advanced; in a few cases, however, I was able to use the CD-quality audio sources. Also, make sure you have 16-bit audio on, or you’ll get the original sounds. I also suggest pairing these with W’rkncacnter’s HD AOPID graphics for best results: http://simplici7y.com/items/hd-aopid-graphics

This is a Marathon Infinity landscape plugin intended for people that like the look of the original landscapes, but want more detail than the originals allow. Most HD landscapes 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 landscapes to try to get rid of anything odd. They 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 1.1:
1.1: Corrected the size of the images and restored missing data on the top and bottom of the images.

The entire Marathon OST meticulously restored with new instruments and better production value.
Unlike most M1 music replacers, this one does NOT try to heavily alter the original composition nor is it simply a sound font swap. I remixed everything inside of FL Studio 20 with high quality VST instruments and (occasionally) real hardware synths and sounds. My goal was to create a faithful reinterpretation of the OST with mostly appropriate sounds (nothing more modern than 1990's electronic instruments, etc) but with a better overall balance and less cheap sound. I'm extremely proud of the outcome, and I think fans of the original game and its score will really appreciate it too!
This download contains a FLAC and OGG version, to replace the in game music, simply drop the OGG files into the "Music" folder in your Marathon directory.
If Aleph One is ever updated to allow gapless looping of music, I will create a loopable mix.

"An enormous 6-level total conversion. (Well, okay, not total... and that's its biggest weakness.) The mapmaking is pretty good, and the new creatures are quite cool (you can see them in a series of very nice pics here if you're up for a 3 meg download, or get an idea from this 500K desktop picture), but I was bugged a bit when a new monster, with lots of new looks/sounds, died with an old sound, or fired with an old sound, or... Okay, it's a trivial complaint. Overall, this is really, really well done. It's been out for a while (as have lots of the recent uploads), but it's the first time I've seen it, and maybe you, too. Lots of art, lots of sound, lots of music (that's where all the new size comes from)."

It is 40 years after the combined forces of Earth and the S'pht Kr sacked the Pfhor system. You were put back into stasis after your legendary battles at Tau Ceti and L'howon. You've been recalled from stasis to help the UESC on a mission of utmost importance. You are aboard the UESC Leviathan and headed towards the Kolana system. Hobbes, the onboard AI, informs you of the situation. The Pfhor are back. So are the S'pht. More importantly, there is a new player in town, an AI called Wanda.
- An epic 3-way battle for the Jjaro AI with fluid alliances. Fight with the S'pht against the Pfhor, fight with the Pfhor against the S'pht. Fight alone against everyone.
- A new texture set
- 12 solo levels

[05/11/21 update: New map added, NEFX - "Advantage's Patchwork".] You wanted it, you finally got it (and I've wanted it too): Height variation, differential shading, non-square based architecture, dynamic lighting, ambient sounds, textural variety, and random sounds. Initially this was based on the Kill Them All project in the sense of following the rule of having 100 polygons per level max, but over time it seems I could not stick to that necessarily. :3
Notes for version 6:

Err... uhm... so i did it? The whole Infinity spritesets and images (minus the Player, that will come, eventually) but in a more cartoon-ish format.
For any problem in downloading the whole pack, the single items are mirrored on my Drive.

Initial release, let me know about bug, inconsistencies etc.

HD monsters for Marathon 2 / Infinity. These were generated with Topaz Gigapixel AI upscaling using Art settings, with some automatic processing to correct colors and smooth the edges of the sprites. The art style upscales have less detail than the other gigapixel plugin, but this is typically a good thing, as the extra "detail" in the other plugin was controversial. If you like some monsters from the other plugin better, it should be easy to mix-and-match monster collections, by copying the numbered folders from one plugin to another. For reference, the other plugin can be found here: http://simplici7y.com/items/marathon-infinity-upscaled-monsters.
There were some manual edits done to the fighter shapes to keep their staves/glow maps consistent between frames. The inconsistencies were obvious with the higher definition monsters, so thanks to Aaron for cleaning up the originals.
