Marathon 2: Durandal by Best Reviewed
W'rkncacnter on Apr 1st 2020
Translated versions of games in the trilogy are all the rage these days, so I thought I'd make my own version. I painstakingly went through every line of the terminals and translated them to loch. Just select this map file when playing M2, and you're good to go.

The TTEP (Total Texture Enhancement Package) is a massive package containing remakes of the original textures from the Marathon trilogy.
It replaces the original low-quality textures with new high-ress versions with a maximum size of 1024x1024 pixels. I've tried to get them as close to the originals as possible.
New in version 7.0:
Script files have been cleaned up and files have been renamed to make it more clear how to install.
All textures are now optimized .DDS files, with increased performance as well as quality!
Textures can now be scaled down in Aleph One's OpenGL settings. This also makes the TTEP a single size package, there's no longer 4 different sizes.
A lot of the textures have tiny flaws removed, some are completely redone to make them look better.
The Textures are now divided by their games, meaning you're not forced to download and use the Marathon 2 Textures when you only want the Marathon 1 replacements for example.

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

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!

These files will allow you to extract and implement all HD sprites and textures from the XBox Live Arcade version of Marathon:Durandal into your AlephOne installation of Marathon 2.
Detailed instructions on how to get it working can be found in the included ReadMe file.
This was made possible thanks to the combined efforts of Treellama and thedoctor45.
Hope you enjoy.
