Marathon 1 Remastered Sounds 1.0

The Man on Jul 27th 2020

My long-overdue remastered Marathon 1 sounds. They should be noticeably less noisy, crisper, and (in some cases) less distorted than the originals - even more so than my remastered Marathon Infinity sounds, since all of the original Marathon 1 sounds were 8-bit.

Includes a readme with a bunch of (hopefully) useful information, but you should be aware of a few caveats before downloading or using these:

  • These will only work with Aleph One, not the classic Marathon app.

  • These will only work with the classic Marathon files, not M1A1.

  • If, for some reason, you are still using an Aleph One version prior to 1.3: (a) you really should upgrade to the latest version; (b) if you don’t, you will need to quit and reopen Aleph One after selecting these in your preferences.

  • These are half as loud as the original sounds. You may wish to adjust your music volume.

Should you have any other issues, please let me know via one of the forms of contact included in the readme. Beyond that, enjoy!

Notes for version 1.0:

First release.

M1A1 Fullscreen Corner HUD 1.0

Shappie on Jul 27th 2020

Romanbathsofconflict_0000

This is a slightly modified version of Hopper's M1A1 HUD. It moves the HUD to the lower left corner of the screen and allows for fullscreen mode without any black bar. This should work for any Aleph One scenario, including M1.

I also made a few small edits to the HUD itself for aesthetics and transparency.

Thanks to wrkncacnter for the additional scripting.

This is a slightly modified version of Hopper's M2 Default HUD. It moves the HUD to the lower left corner of the screen and allows for fullscreen mode without any black bar. This works for any non-M1 scenario.

Thanks to wrkncacnter for the additional scripting.

Phoenix Falling 1.3

Shappie on Jul 18th 2020

Ontopoftheworld_0001

Phoenix Falling is a large M1 scenario of 44 levels featuring a new story with new characters, weapons, creatures, sounds, shapes, and more. (48 with secret levels and one network level)

Please keep in mind - there are bugs in this release. Most of these are caused by running the game in the Aleph One engine, which did not yet exist when the scenario was created. This used to be run with the original M1 engine.

Some of the largest known bugs are related to shapes not rendering correctly with chairs, tracer rounds from the brass gun, the weapon display in the HUD interface, and most of the new creature animations.

Repackaged for Simplici7y with permission from the Phoenix Falling creators, Matt & Andrew Schenk.

Notes for version 1.3:

This version has a fixed Map file that should allow terminals to function in the vacuum levels.

Operation Tantalus 1.0

Shappie on Jul 17th 2020

Reversaloffate_0000

"A 19-level solo masterpiece, with new sounds, shapes, terms, physics, bobs... and it's totally non-linear (you decide what order to do the levels in). Brought to you by the folks who did U.S.S. Raider, Athens Outpost, and the Marathon's Story page."

This scenario has been converted to an Aleph One compatible format and repackaged for Simplici7y.

Marathon Evil mml 1

The Last Nakh on Jul 15th 2020

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.

Marathon Red addenda 2

The Last Nakh on Jul 15th 2020

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.

Enjoy.

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.

Narrow Mountain Path

Exy on Jul 14th 2020

Narrowmountainpath_0002

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.

Marathon Apotheosis 0.9

Shappie on Jul 13th 2020

Killioughta_0000

A 22 level single player game with brand new terminal art, weapons, environments, characters, and a story fleshing out the Marathon universe.

This scenario had become unattainable save for a single place, the Marathon Total Carnage Pack. I extracted and repackaged it to upload here, so everyone can access and enjoy this incredible scenario.

It is technically "unfinished" but only in the sense that it is missing some polish. It is essentially complete and you can play through the entire scenario without issue. Read the read me file for more information about Apotheosis.

Special thanks to Hypersleep.

Community/Freeverse Plugin - Monsters 1.3

herecomethej2000 on Jul 6th 2020

Screenshot

CFP is a complete set of high definition textures for Marathon Infinity and Durandal. Based on the original Freeverse Marathon 2 Durandal XBLA textures, these have been further enhanced by the Alephone community with glowmaps and made to support Marathon Infinity.

Contributors:

Freeverse, Hopper, Treellama, TheDoc45, General Tacticus, J2k, Spurious Interrupt, Tfear7

This is the monsters portion of the plugin.

Installation: The downloaded file must be decompressed and the sub zip files moved to the appropriate plugin folder. The reason the plugin is broken up is for improved performance while still having the benefit of being compressed.

Note: Alephone doesn't handle overly large compressed plugins very well, especially on OSX. This is because Alephone would have to decompress the entire monster set just to get at the relatively few sprites it needs for any given instance. By breaking the plugin up into multiple plugins for each monster type, it only has to decompress what it needs for an instance.
