M1A1: "History" Netpack Vol. 2 1.0

M1 Map Dude on Aug 30th 2010

Mile

You'll definitely need to read the enclosed "Read Me" on this one, but in the meantime...

NOTE: The following maps are truly the stand-outs which deserve your special attentions: Home Pfhor the Holidays, Milestones, Pfhor a Few Dollars More, and The Woolen Mill. While the rest are absolutely fun and great in their own rights (or they'd not be here), these mentioned four are the cream of the pack (in the opinion of the converter...your mileage may vary, of course).

The Vol. 2 maps are:

  1. Evilution by Biks
  2. Festung by ProleByte
  3. Gilligan's Island by Chris Ashton
  4. Home Pfhor the Holidays by Nick Roemer
  5. Milestones by Randall Shaw
  6. Pfhor a Few Dollars More by Sriranga Veeraraghavan
  7. Pillars Unto You by Bruce Hartzler
  8. The Green Hills of Death by Chris Johnson
  9. The Woolen Mill by Phil Harvey
  10. Two Small Flames We Saw by Sriranga Veeraraghavan

Enjoy your carnage.

Alpha's Redux 2.2

3371-Alpha on Feb 21st 2016

Tryagain_0000

I have patched tim4i's old m1redux weapons plugin for the official Marathon. This plugin replaces the old weapon sprites with HD variants. Some textures have been refined even further from the original using GIMP to edit them. According to Tim4i, you should not unzip this file but I've found it works regardless. All credit goes to both tim4i & herecomethej2000s as this was their original work, I merely patched the file. The original licence restrictions still apply.

NOTES:

-You need OpenGL to run this pack.

-This plugin is for the official Marathon 1 (not M1A1).

-I did NOT get permission from tim4i to create this patch. He hasn't been online since 2012 and left no means of contact. No copyright infringement intended.

Post any glitches/problems you find here: http://pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=39240

Notes for version 2.2:

-Fixed a transparency/eraser mistake I made with the pistol that I didn't fully fix in the last revision.

-Rounded the tip of the assault rifle to make the barrel appear more realistic.

-Antialiased the fusion gun ever further.

M1A1: "History" Netpack Vol. 3 1.0

M1 Map Dude on Sep 15th 2010

100

ATTENTION: Trying something slightly different this time and that is, adding brief descriptions of the individuals maps, with a purely subjective personal assessment included.

The Vol. 3 maps are:

  1. "100% UESC Choice Carnage" by BrianV430 - April 1996: Very dark, very perilous map, especially in the (+A) mode. Great for three players, plus. Excellent if dangerous flow. Center chamber hole has the goodies, and is not easy to reach.

  2. "Billy" by John Howard (aka, Rugburn) - April 1995: Repeatedly revered as one of the top 3rd-party netmaps ever made for M1, this feels more like something for M2 or Infinity. Great flow, cool but understated design, great times with three or more.

  3. "Cannon Food v1.1" by Michael Reiske - July 1995: Simple, but a great time to be had by two players. Add more, and it's a regular riot.

  4. "Carnage Haus" by Nick Roemer (aka, StompBox) - November 1995: This is not so good with less than three, but otherwise a fantastic layout for high-energy play. Personally, I think the design rocks, with the drop-down mezzanine, etc.

  5. "Dark & Light" by Dan LaSota - May 1995: An excellent early example of interesting but simple lighting techniques. Gameplay ranges from so-so to quite fun. Really needs four or more.

  6. "Dead Ringers" by Randall Scott - September 1995: The architecture is so-so, but the gameplay? Awesome. Confusing, crazy, cramped. Probably five, max, on this one, And that's pushing it.

  7. "Dogfight" by Evan Vetere - September 1995: An example of a map from old that matches well with some of the newer standards. Perfect for CTF Lua experiences, or really any sort of "team"-oriented gameplay. However, it's great just as it is. Watch-out for the green river!

  8. "Look At the Loser In the Middle" by Mike Salegui - February 1996: A different approach to the netmap: A center "cage" where you get invincibility...for a time. Meanwhile, everyone else tries to take you out while shifting around the room.

  9. "Pfhor the World Is Hollow..." by Sriranga Veeraraghava - August 1995: Name obviously based on the old "Star Trek" episode. Interesting situation on this one: Which came first? The "World Wide Web" variants, or this? Difficult to tell, even with all the dates gathered. If you know the "WWW" sets, you know this. If not, play. It's also a vacuum level. Usually, that's bad. In this case, it's fun.

  10. "Pfhree Pfhor All" v2.6.3 by Randall Shaw (aka, FrigidMan) - April 1995: A very early Pfhor incarnation. Lots of variation to the gameplay, very good flow and fantastic for four or more. The elevated "pads" in space are a great little side-trip on a pretty large map.

M1A1: Temple of the Pfhor (Netpack) 1.1

M1 Map Dude on Aug 19th 2010

Temple-of-the-pfhor-01

NOTE: This October 1995 netpack has been converted to M1A1 as part of "The M1 Map Conversion Project" (see enclosed Read Me for details).

"Temple of the Pfhor" is action-packed and at times very dark. Maps in the pack are:

Temple of the Pfhor (excellent)

Drop In (very cool)

Warp 3.0 (so-so)

Cavern (fun-ish)

Busywork (carnage craziness)

Amazin' (so-so)

This M1A1 map-pack was designed with both carnage and visual aesthetics in mind. The weapons are easily accessible, and the ammo should be plentiful even with 8 players.

Original M1 version created by Ric Ewing.

Notes for version 1.1:

Version 1.1 corrects lighting phase issue encountered in the M1A1 conversion and also merges proper M1A1 physics into each map.

P4

From way back in November 1995 comes this high carnage, high energy, high DPM collection of four mostly well-designed, extremely fun netmaps, now fully converted for use with M1A1, only.

  1. Portals...What? (pure insanity, in every way)
  2. X Marks the Spot! (battles royale)
  3. Watch Your Top Side! (interesting ways to die)
  4. Hold On To Your Pants! (complete mayhem)

Shappie on Aug 31st 2020

Arrival_0007

Here it is, at last: Marathon TROJAN. Now compatible with Aleph One (1.3 or newer), this uses the native M1 files to deliver the original, unaltered experience we know from the 90's.

M1 compatible fullscreen HUD plugins will work with TROJAN if you don't want to use the included Classic HUD plugin.

Additional files include the Weapons Pump Patch, FAQ, Manual, Spoiler Guide, and read me's from older versions of TROJAN.

Special thank you to Hamish Sanderson for giving us permission to distribute this re-release of TROJAN. Enjoy!

Eupfhoria - Marathon Soundtrack Remake 1

Eupfhoria - Marathon Soundtrack Remake

Eupfhoria is a fully re-instrumented and re-scored soundtrack mod for the first Marathon. This replacement tries to remaster the original soundtrack while retaining the original feel. It IS the tracks you know and love, as it's based off the original MIDI files. Most tracks should fuller and more atmospheric, hopefully a bit like Marathon's younger brother, Halo.

To see if this is for you without downloading, you can stream it all here: Eupfhoria - Full Album Stream

Installation is simple, just replace your Music folder found in the Marathon directory. Backup your original folder if you want to go back to the originals.

NOTE: Don't use this for your first playthrough. Really. This is for people who've played through it before and want a new experience. Updating those pesky textures is one thing, but save this for your second playthrough.

Notes for version 1:

First release.

Upscaled Weapons for M1 1.0

Flippant Sol on Jul 4th 2018

16

A similar scaled texture pack as "xBR Monsters for M1", but this is for M1's weapons and the algorithm is slightly different.

I would recommend leaving linear filtering on to smooth out the textures.

Notes for version 1.0:

Shouldn't be any incompatibilities with other plugins.

Phoenix Falling 1.3

Shappie on Jul 18th 2020

Alpha_0000

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.
