Screenshot titled "Marathon Durandal Textures"

Marathon Durandal Textures at 1024X1024

These are the original textures created for Marathon Durandal. In game they are displayed at 512 using DirectX Texture Compression.

These Textures were created by Steven Tzé (http://www.steventze.com) and Mike Watson. Script by Jeremiah Morris. Thanks to Gregory Smith for getting me to do this finally.

License:

These Textures are free to use in any project provided

  1. You don't sell a work made with these textures.
  2. You don't sell these textures.

If you want to rehost these textures, please give a link back to the Aleph One team. Consider buying Steven Tzé and Mike Watson a beer, they put a lot of hard work into these, going from a postage stamp 128X128 indexed color image into a beautiful 1024X1024 image.

Also consider buying a copy of Marathon: Durandal on your Xbox 360. None of the money goes to me, Freeverse is long gone, but it's a good game.

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.

Marathon 2 AMP! 0.96

The Map file for Marathon 2: Durandal, as it was presented in the Windows 95 release.

The Windows map file contains several visual (and a few gameplay altering) changes from the Mac version, many small, some big. It also has a few altered terminal images.

Anyone familiar with "Waterloo Waterpark" will immediately be surprised with this rendition.

There are some players who do prefer the Windows map, so I decided it would be worth posting on Simplici7y.

The M2 Win95 map file is not particularly hard to obtain, as it is available in retail M2 copies for Windows, and it's available as a download on the Trilogy Release site, HOWEVER, that merge does not contain chapter screen sound effects. I re-merged the map file with the Mac version's sound resource folder, so now all chapter screens will play the appropriate sound.

This plugin contains the HD textures and landscapes that come with the Xbox Live Arcade game Marathon: Durandal, created by Freeverse. It is also included in the all-in-one download of Marathon 2.

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!

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, Zetren

This is Zetren's 1024x1024 XBLA walls for M2 Durandal integrated with the bloom effects from thedoctor45's XBLA SuperPlugin and made to be compatible with the CFP set.

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 wall texture 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 wall set, it only has to decompress what it needs for an instance.

Marathon: Victum Demo Demo Beta v1

IonicPaul on 09/13/2008

Screenshot titled "Looks like they're ready for something"

This is the Marathon Victum Demo. Only the maps and shapes file are included. This is compatible with the hi-res shots, WEP pack and partially with the texture enhancement pack.

Because Victum uses Marathon 2's Water, Sewage, Lava, and Pfhor texture sets as well as the Marathon Infinity Jjaro set, it would not be logical to simply add the M2 or Marathon Infinity enhancement packs because they would make the game look wrong. What you need to do is get both the Infinity and Durandal enhancement packs, then use the Marathon infinity texture script and folders, but then copy over the four Marathon 2 sets in the marathon infinity texture folder, so the folder will be like so:

-Jjaro hi-res set -M2 water hi-res -M2 sewage hi-res -M2 pfhor hi-res -M2 lava hi-res -Marathon Infinity hi-res script

Backstory: Marathon Infinity was a dream of sorts, and Marathon 2 has just ended. You awake aboard a human-built ship.

It's sweet and simple because it will be explained in the first level.

Known bugs: The third level has no ambient or random sounds.

Screenshot titled "Full Game --- Preview"

This plugin replaces some textures with those found in the Marathon 2 Preview.

The Marathon 2 Preview was released before the Marathon 2 Demo, and contains different textures, weapons and sprites than in the full game, and in some cases, the demo.

I highly recommend that you use Marathon 2 Textures with this plugin. Aleph One 1.0 also recommended.

-- Special Thanks to Hopper for converting the M2 Preview Shapes to Aleph One Format

Notes for version 2.2:

v2.1 to 2.2

  • Ugh, texture 010 was incorrectly named after the Preview, in which it was bitmap 23. Corrected.

v2.0 to 2.1

  • I'd forgotten to convert the new textures to DDS format. They should work properly now.

v1.0 to v2.0 - Completely replaced all bitmaps, using Hopper's converted M2 Preview Shapes (The screenshot method was worth it :))

  • Added textures 002, 003, 027, and 029

Screenshot titled "Largest scale 16:9 resolution"

This is the default HUD for Marathon 2 & Marathon Infinity, extended to fill today's modern 16:9 screens when using "largest" HUD size mode. This plugin can be used with both Marathon 2 & Infinity.

A second inventory page is displayed to fill the new space. In Solo games, the extra page always shows Ammunition. In Netgames, the extra page always shows the Scoreboard.

Additionally, the 3D game view is no longer letterboxed.

Normal, Double, and Largest HUD sizes are all supported.

Lastly, this also fixes a couple small issues the original HUD had:

  • SMG/Fusion pistol item & ammo names are no longer cut off since now we have a bit more horizontal space

  • Yellow/Purple shield bars now don't have gray corners when overlapping the bar under it

  • Motion tracker graphic not as dithered as before, so it stands out less compared to the regular background

Note that due to custom graphics this is not compatible with custom scenarios that replace the HUD.

Based on the "M2 Default HUD" Lua by Hopper

This will not work with M1. I may later make a wide adaptation of the M1A1 HUD for those who want this kind of HUD in M1. Widescreen Marathon 1 Classic HUD here.

Notes for version 1.1:

v1.1: Fixed shield/oxygen bars being drawn a tiny bit too low

v1.0: Initial release

Screenshot titled ""

Hippieman found some higher resolution renders from the XBLA game on his hard drive. This plugin combines the scraps to give you mostly complete compiler, cyborg, fighter, green trooper, hunter, tick, and f'lickta replacements.

  • There is no purple trooper, it will be low res. Sorry, Vidmasters.
  • One frame of the brown hunter is missing, and will appear low-res
  • The orange compiler was generated from the purple one using the hald clut that was used for the original plugin. All the compilers were squished vertically to fit the original XBLA aspect ratio.
  • Not (yet?) included: the "Marine" sprites
  • Not included: the Classic Marathon-style red compiler
Notes for version 0.2:
  • Fixes black outlines in DDS conversion
