Scenario

Screenshot titled ""

Marathon® Infinity takes the closed universe of the Marathon series and blows it wide open. The solo/co-op campaign, “Blood Tides of Lh’owon,” is a 20-level scenario sporting new textures, weapons, and aliens. More than that, the scenario sheds a surprising new light on the story’s characters and the meaning of events. Having defeated the Pfhor and reawakened the ancient remnants of the S’pht, the player now faces a world where friends become enemies and all is not what it seems…

Marathon Infinity is the most popular Marathon game in online play, and is compatible with hundreds of community-made maps. This release includes the classic graphics, and revamped high-definition textures and weapons.

NEFX Mods 2024-01-01

Adminn_1 on 01/01/2024

Screenshot titled ""

Thank you for playing NEFX Marathon Modifications. Among these are scripts and physics either for multiplayer, single player, or both. More may be added over time in future versions, so look out. See below for datestamped logs of all the uploads, because even if you are up-to-date on a current update, there may be more you've missed. You don't want to miss these!

What do these do?

2024-01-01 uploads:

Yuge New Year! I added 10 new mods:

"Pyrrhic Panshaper Esoteric Warfare"

In this mod meant for either multiplayer or singleplayer, both firing modes for every weapon each spawn a different monster. To win in a netgame, just die from the monsters less than the others do.

"Hold to the Calling at the Collapse's Beckoning"

In this mod meant mainly for netplay, all polygon floors rise and fall at different time intervals. They don't act like platforms in the sense that they won't retract or crush you if they get you up to a ceiling, but they will make the match wild as you try to kill each other amidst all the rising and falling.

"Seekers of the Absurd Eschaton"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay and requiring you to turn on Aliens for it to work, is based loosely on the map "Fith" from the original Unreal (or Unreal Gold). For one thing, 5 random polygons are marked (both in plain-view and in the overhead map) and numbered 1-5, and any time someone steps on that polygon, the corresponding number is printed to everyone's screen so they know roughly where to go to find an enemy (beyond the range of their motion sensor). However, the real catch of this mod is that there is always a lone green BOB wandering on the map; and if you kill him 7 times, you'll basically cause an armageddon event where explosives go off everywhere in the map for a while, probably killing other players. You'll be told how many more BOBs you have left to kill too.

"A Grandiose Wielder's Ambition"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, puts all items on the map in one random polygon that is marked in the overhead map as "the pile". Obviously you'll want to get and hoard the supplies from everyone else in order to best ensure your chances of winning.

"Secret-Holder Within Wide Decline"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, spawns different-level shield capsules in random polygons but makes it so that you take all the damage that you dish out. Obviously then you'll want to get to the capsules as much as you can to avoid killing yourself when you kill your enemies.

"The Maintainer of the Scarpter"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that you earn points for all damage you take, but lose them all if you die. So your best bet for winning is to get damaged as much as possible without dying and manage to stay away from further harm during the last few seconds of the game, making sure to pick off any remaining competition along the way.

"Rubiconic Order-Carver"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that each polygon in the map has a chip, all walls in the map are chip slots, and you earn points by installing the most chips. Keep in mind that if you use one of the wall panels with or without a chip, it will turn into a regular wall and won't be usable anymore, so be careful about when and where you use them. Not all panels will work, but many will. Sometimes chips will spawn well enough off the ground that you'll have to find ledges to jump from onto them or explosives-hop yourself up to reach them.

"Mapplan Hardharvest"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that one marked polygon (in plain-view and in the overhead map as "the pile") spawns an infinite number of chips, all walls in the map are chip slots, and you earn points by installing the most chips. Keep in mind that if you use one of the wall panels with or without a chip, it will turn into a regular wall and won't be usable anymore, so be careful about when and where you use them. Not all panels will work, but many will. Sometimes the chip pile will spawn well enough off the ground that you'll have to find ledges to jump from onto it or explosives-hop yourself up to reach it.

"The Circumstantial Hotspots of World-As-Known Decision"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that each polygon in the map has a chip, all walls in the map are chip slots, and you earn points by installing the most chips. Unlike "Rubiconic Order-Carver", slots will not disappear after being used, so you can install chips in the same one as much as you want. Not all panels will work, but many will. Sometimes chips will spawn well enough off the ground that you'll have to find ledges to jump from onto them or explosives-hop yourself up to reach them.

"Retriever for the Sepulchral Mountain"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that each polygon in the map has a chip, only one wall on the map has a chip slot (which is limitless), and you earn points by installing the most chips. Sometimes chips will spawn well enough off the ground that you'll have to find ledges to jump from onto them or explosives-hop yourself up to reach them.

"Controlplot Overwreak"

Here's a Yugemas gift for the people, a netgame script meant mainly for standard red-blue team games but that can be played all-against-all too. It functions much like the Domination game mode in Unreal Tournament. Four different random polygons in a level are each assigned a control point that is indicated both in plain-view (with a marking and static floor) and in the overhead map view. Your task is to run over these polygons to "capture" them, which will cause you to earn points even after you've stepped on them and even after you die -- that is, until one of your opponents steps on them and captures them for themselves. So capture as many of these as possible for as long as possible in order to win.

2023-12-04 uploads:

"A Downcast Curse of Heavystone"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, puts a large cylinder scenery object in the center of every polygon in a map, creating a bunch of obstacles to run around and trap your enemies in. This is a more straight-ahead and consistent version of the cylinder-placing mods, since it actually uses Lua tables instead of using hacks with monster classes and physics models like some of the other obstacle-focused mods in this pack do.

"Daggerland of Secret Chiefs (N)"

This netplay mod makes all players constantly have double invisibility.

"Doom-Gambling Power-Learner Adventurism"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, allows all players to teleport at will to a random polygon in the map by pressing the mic button. Sometimes you may wind up in a less-than-ideal spot, but you can always teleport again to get somewhere better. This way you can find creative new ways to escape from attackers and get the drop on them.

"Extreme Self-Cannon of Hardsight and Timing"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that you will die if you try to move, but you spawn with an unlimited rocket launcher that you're immune to, so you can move around purely by rocket jumping everywhere. As such, you can only kill each other while standing, although you'll obviously want to use something aside from rockets or grenades.

"Growing Strength of the Dimension Transector"

This netplay mod makes it so that you earn points by teleporting, so make sure to get on a teleporter more than everyone else in order to win.

"Hiveplunge Into Mass Viddiction"

This netplay mod makes it so that you earn points by toggling the automap, so make sure to hit that button more than everyone else in order to win. Definitely a sillier mod.

"Means-Seizer Dominitude"

This netplay mod makes it so that you earn points by collecting items AND can steal the points of whoever you kill. Hoard as much as you can and stay alive!

"Of A Hunger Once Unique to Phantasms of Yore"

This netplay mod alters standard deathmatch so that you steal the points of whoever you kill. Of course, if they have 0, you get nothing, and if they have negative points, you'll actually lose points. This can be awkward in two-player matches, but with more players it gets more interesting.

"Overflowing of Boundary-Crushing Glory"

This netplay mod makes it so that you earn points by keeping momentum. Specifically, you earn points the fastest when you keep running forward; so try to avoid any other movement or obstacles, kill your enemies on the run so that their momentum is interrupted, and avoid having yours interrupted too.

"Quests of Legitimate Power Seizure in the Cagecraft"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that players spawn solid "large cylinder" scenery objects on their exact position by pressing the mic button. You can hold down the button while running and even going off ledges, and it'll spawn those cylinders in the air. Of course, these cylinders block your path, so be careful not to get trapped in and try to trap in your enemies to kill them better.

"Spire Stakes of Clutch"

This netplay mod makes it so that you earn points by collecting items but will lose all your points if you're killed.

"The Patient Becoming of the Blood-Minded Disciple"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that you will die if you get too much momentum. Basically the only way to move without dying is by walking and not also sidestepping at the same time. See how the dynamic of combat changes when everyone has to be slower!

"The Sudden Terror of Fake Progress in Malfunction and Indomitable Nature"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that you die if you use a teleporter. I like to imagine that there's a malfunction in the teleportation system that leads to you being teleported in pieces, like in movies.

"To Maintain Its Ascendancy in Serial Death"

This netplay mod makes it so that you earn points by dying, so kill yourself more than everyone else in order to win.

"Tour By Astral Cast of Chaotic Fate"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that you constantly teleport at regular intervals to a random polygon in the level, no matter what.

"Wrester of the Rigidity in the Chance-Tides"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that all players will die if they move but can teleport at will to a random polygon in the level by pressing the microphone button. Naturally, you can only kill your enemies while still, so take advantage of whatever position you can teleport to at any moment.

2023-11-27

"Global Collision in the Invisible Flood"

This mod, meant mainly for netplay, makes it so that all players have a constant external velocity dragging them in one direction, as though every polygon had an invisible liquid conveyor belt on it.

<hr />

older uploads

"Aperture in Tank Myopia"

This means you cannot turn or look up or down, but are always facing straight ahead as you move. See how you kill each other with this ridiculous shared handicap!

"Armagolem Hellspell Worldstakes"

This mod meant mainly for netplay makes all your weapons shoot out bouncing simulacrum BOBs that hone in on your target. Note that (1) the firing patterns of your weapons are the same, meaning that you can use your fists to summon simulacrums even if you're out of ammo, faster-firing weapons will yield simulacrums at a faster rate, shotguns will shoot them out in clusters, etc. Note also that these simulacrums will not function exactly like the normal ones and may explode sooner than wanted, but their bouncing means that you can get them across chasms depending on the location and angle that you shoot them at. It's your armies against your opponents'!

"As the Dream Seeps Into and Dissolves You"

This turns all textures into landscape ones.

"Betrothing to the Forgotten Root of Potentiate"

This means you are permanently equipped with only a single pistol with unlimited ammunition and no way to dual-wield. This can make for some very interesting net games as you all learn to make do with what is probably the least-used multiplayer fighting option in Marathon history, even below fists. You will become a better player this way and make laughs along the way.

"Binary Switch Runs of Destiny"

You start out with unlimited ammo for all weapons, but you can only use whatever weapon you run over.

"Bringing All Back to the Raw Cult"

This script "flattens" levels into something reminiscent of Wolfenstein 3D (albeit less blocky). Specifically, it makes all floor heights 0, all ceiling heights 1, and all platform heights 0. It also makes all liquids in the level into rapid floors conveyors like you've come to know in NEFX maps. This can make for a new, interesting, and funny multiplayer experience, but may render many singleplayer levels unbeatable, mainly due to issues with platforms.

"Cannontrackslip"

No one can turn, so you're stuck facing forward the whole time.

"Chains of Counteradaptation"

This mod is mainly meant for netplay and you will have to turn on Aliens for it to work. It turns all monster classes into identical large column scenery objects that move around. They can't hurt you and you can't hurt them, but they sure can get in the way of players, so watch out and use that to your advantage to trap your enemies.

"Chainsnipe Celebration Infinite Crafter"

This makes it so all your weapons shoot a different kind of scenery that flies across and sticks where it lands on the wall. Different firing modes shoot different scenery too. This can be good if you want to decorate a place, and especially if you want to have a more relaxing and funny game with other players.

"Collidescoop Summoner"

Meant mainly for multiplayer deathmatch, this turns every polygon into a teleporter. Teleporters in maps generally default to the same location, so this is a way to gather all players together into one spot to duke it out with each other in close quarters all at once. Try this in an 8-player game for total hilarity. Note that in some maps the teleporter will just take you out of the level.

"Current Prison & the Myriad Deceit"

All items are mines in this one, so the way to win is to avoid them and try to rack up points against your enemies with your fist or pistol. Good luck!

"Forcefielder Global Gambit"

This mod is mainly intended for netplay and you will need to turn on Aliens for it to work. It replaces all monster classes with identical large column scenery objects that don't move. You can't hurt them and they can't hurt you -- they can't even move -- but they sure can get in players' way, so be on the lookout and use that to your advantage to trap your enemies.

"Funneled Spatial Remembrance"

This kills and taunts you if you try to save, recharge, access a terminal, or activate the automap. This is the real "Adminn_1's Challenge" to help you train for maximum Vidmaster runs!

"Global Omnilode Onus - The Wire"

This is a multiplayer game mode in which whoever collects the most items wins. Each item you pick up gives you one point. An interesting thing about this is that items tend to respawn en masse after a player dies, meaning it further helps not only to kill others but also yourself!

"Motherlode Overquench"

Everyone gets all weapons and ammunition from the start. There's probably already a script like this out there, but I figured I'd put one with the other NEFX ones too.

"Obscura in the Celestial Gaze"

All players are always stuck looking up at a 30-degree angle, so you have to somehow get under your enemy to hit them.

"Play Pretexts to New Awareness"

This modifies the fists to drop infinite bouncing bombs that detonate upon settling, modifies grenades to be landmines, and modifies the rocket launcher to fire more explosives in a faster and honing fashion (albeit with one shot per clip).

"Precarious Keeping of the Sigil Code Keys"

You spawn with all weapons, but lose them every time you run over their ammo.

"Realization Through Ensnarement"

In tribute to known historical NEFX practice and reference thereof by many Marathon community members, this script-and-physics combo randomly generates columns that block your way in a level. You can easily adjust the number of columns you want (enemy players) to deal with in the script. The columns are actually Tiny Pfhor that were modded to look and behave like columns -- stationary, completely idle, and not damaged by anything.

"Shapers Transforming Placemeaning By Piece"

This makes it so all your weapons spawn a different kind of scenery right in front of you. Different firing modes shoot different scenery too. This can be good if you want to decorate a place, and especially if you want to have a more relaxing and funny game with other players.

“Spectrallax of Dooming Possibility”

This makes all weapons work under liquid as they would above liquid and makes all monsters fly. This is good for net maps taking place mostly or entirely under liquid such as NEFX will later produce, where you can basically have “flying” deathmatches or survivalmatches, and thus helps to expand the combat possibilities of Marathon.

"Stalactice-Bound Freefinders"

Meant mainly for netplay, this makes every map entirely underwater and equips every player with an SMG with unlimited ammo. See how much more open-ended and freaky maps get when you can swim everywhere!

"The False Promise of Conditioned Currency"

Don't step on items or you'll lose points. It's up to you whether the points you'll get from killing your enemy with the supplies you pick up will offset the cost of picking up the supplies.

“The Full Rounding of Age-Old Collective Drives”

Since the pistols and fists don’t really find use in net games most of the time except for self-challenging purposes, this disables both and replaces them with a fusion pistol of unlimited shots (technically 12,241 per the seeming allowed maximum on ShapeFusion, but you’ll surely die before you run out) -- a "starting blaster" if you will, reminiscent of games like Quake II or Unreal I. See how threatening the invinciwimpsi are now!

"The New Paradigm When the Upper Crust is Removed"

You know how players in netgames usually go right to the shotguns and rocket launcher? Well, this script removes those exact weapons so that everyone has to rely on everything else to get their kills.

"Timeframes Decision Nodes"

This starts all players off with full 3-layer shields, but the shields go down at recharger speed until they reach 0 and you blow up. Make your time and resources count!

"Through the Oblvision"

Meant mainly for multiplayer deathmatch, this makes any map you launch completely underwater with a fairly strong current in one direction. Naturally you will incline towards this direction and move faster if you move with the current, whereas you will move slower if going against the current. See how this changes the way a map and deathmatch flows (heh).

"Victory of Absurdist Balance By Inwardness"

This starts you immediately with a never-ending shield charge, and you will die if you reach full triple-bar (purple) shields. This will make for an interesting net game as all players have to preoccupy themselves with finding ways based on their environment, position, equipment, etc, to die the least amount of times by constantly damaging themselves enough (without going too far). Keep in mind that you can still technically kill others, or at least incapacitate them in such a way that they can't damage themselves fast enough to avoid dying.

"Wargame Gamechanger Pinpoint Changes"

This mod is mainly meant for netplay and you will have to turn on Aliens for it to work. It turns all monster classes into identical large column scenery objects that rapidly teleport between nearby spots. They can't hurt you and you can't hurt them, but they sure can get in the way of players, so watch out and use that to your advantage to trap your enemies. In this one you might suddenly have one appear in front of you.

Thanks,

"Mapplan Hardharvest"

Screenshot titled ""

If it exists, the space station is located in the KBC void near the edge of the observable universe, conducting experiments on a theoretically proposed anomaly predicted to be in this region of space. With the prior knowledge that return of even data from this mission was not possible due to the vast distance, our ancestors set out on a journey across the stars to target this predicted phenomenon. Any remains of the vessel are assumed to be drifting in a lifeless unhabitable condition. Distant whispers of long forgotten reality bending experiments in extradimensional space are all that remains of the original documentation about the expedition which left our local region of space approximately 2.2 Ma. You are to collect any and all research data and artefacts, evacuate any unlikely survivors and secure the station for detonation. Good luck.

Pepper HUD 1.0

W'rkncacnter on 08/05/2023

Screenshot titled "Alternate 1"

This is a slightly modified version of the Default HUD created by Hopper: https://simplici7y.com/items/m2-default-hud/

This is meant for people that want the HUD to be small, but not obscure parts of the game world. If you are bothered by the black bar this usually leaves, it can be filled in with artwork. I've included several options for artwork in the resources/extra_images folder. Or you can create your own.

To size the HUD, you can use the typical HUD sizes in the options. However, they will all be smaller than the default HUD, as one of the goals of this plugin is to maximize the game world view.

The normal HUD also typically leaves black bars on the sides depending on your resolution and settings, and this HUD attempts to eliminate that from happening.

Notes for version 1.0:

If you downloaded a PepperHUD that was floating around from a long time ago, you should get this new version.

After all, what is a metastable AI but an electric god?

You've been sent by Durandal to assist a UESC assault on the Vylae homeworld. As Pfhor resistance crumbles, a strange discovery offers new opportunities... and new perils.

A mini-scenario for Marathon Infinity. Six levels, plus one interstitial and one secret bonus level.

Notes for version 1.1:

Notable changes in v1.1:

  • Rebalanced ammo and shield chargers throughout scenario to provide a smoother difficulty curve and encourage exploration/aggression.
  • Embedded MML+Lua (no longer requires Previous AI plugin)
  • Substantially revised Atom Heart Mother (more climactic battles in central portion) and Our Lord Debussy (more to explore in upper floors, more connections between different areas of level).
  • Removed potential Cask-of-Amontillado-esque soft lock in Sic Transit Gloria Mundi.
  • Added a secret bonus level! Getting there is half the challenge.
  • More weapon pickups on more levels, for those that prefer pistol starts (or just missed the weapon the first time around).
  • Tweaks and aesthetic improvements to all levels.

I'm always looking to hone my craft as a mapper -- reviews, suggestions, &c are greatly appreciated. Special thanks to hypersleep for feedback on v1.0 and help with Lua!

[2023-04-01 - The following have been added over the past week:

"Classical Contraption Contemplation"

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 However, I have made many of these maps from a 700-polygon template I made (you know, 700 because 7 because Marathon).

Apotheosis X is a total conversion featuring 24 massive levels of carnage brought to life with entirely reimagined sprites and textures, high frame rate animations, 16 bit audio and an original soundtrack.

The campaign features engaging combat that scales with player skill and aggression, with a roster of new enemies and weaponry that complements the original games' nuance and high skill ceiling.

Notes for version 1.1:

Key updates for 1.1:

  • Sound effects are louder and punchier, with more variety.
  • The player's arsenal is more powerful, with many adjustments that make it more effective on total carnage.
  • Additional saves, items and resources throughout the campaign.
  • Weapon and item pickups are more visible.
  • Numerous bug fixes, including the removal of 2 soft locks.
  • Numerous small updates to level designs.
  • Included PDF manual with a weapon manifest and additional backstory.

Liver and Onions 2

Liver and Onions is a collection of maps I originally made for an unreleased scenario called hellpak

Levels are divided into three chapters, normal combat, platforming and explosive jumps and mandatory explosive jump combat, accessible from a hub. They are also marked in the vidstart menu which I encourage you to use since many levels start difficult sections without a pattern buffer.

Keep in mind chapters do not proceed in order of difficulty, the last few levels of the normal combat chapter are some of the hardest in the scenario.

These levels were created as either niche gameplay experiments, glitch exhibitions or injokes. I am mainly releasing them to vid some of them but if anyone else enjoys these I would be happy.

Notes for version 2:

Aaron properly credited, level 4 appears in level skip dialog

There are no textures.

This is a map for the Source Hammer editor.

Geometry and platforms are made.

The 5D space bridge really moves up and down.

Notes for version 1:

This can only be opened with the Source game Hammer editor.

Gemini Station 2.0

The Man on 08/12/2022

Screenshot titled "Aquae Perturbae"

Note: I didn’t create this; Dr Mike Trinder did. All I did was to convert it to a format compatible with modern Aleph One.

Gemini Station (first complete release: July 9, 1997) is a partial conversion for Marathon Infinity with 12 total levels, though players may not see them all every time they play it. Two are secrets and three are brief exposition levels, so it has seven proper levels, of which six are very long. Seriously, they’re huge.

I haven’t played through the whole thing in a while, but it was extremely impressive when it came out; as far as I know, it was the first scenario to incorporate several mapmaking tricks like airlocks and programmable teleporters. I last replayed it two or three years ago and felt it still held up.

As far as I’m aware, the only versions previously available were incomplete conversions that came with a shapes patcher that only ran on MacOS (and I’m not even sure they ran with modern releases). This version includes the patched shapes file, so you don’t have to bother patching the shapes. All you need to do is select the map and the shapes in Marathon Infinity and you’re good. (Make sure to select the shapes!)

Apart from patching the shapes and converting the map to MacBinary format, I haven’t modified any of these files at all; the readmes are even still in Mac OS Roman. Hopefully Dr Trinder won’t mind me making his scenario accessible to modern players; several people have asked for it on Discord over the years, so I figured I’d save people the trouble in the future.

In any case, I strongly recommend this, especially if you haven’t played it. It’s probably in my top 10 Marathon scenarios of all time, and the only things keeping it out of the top 5 are its short length and its relative lack of original assets (there are no new sounds and not many new graphics). However, it still looks phenomenal, and its map design would probably still seem inventive today. The writing is also fantastic.

Note: Screenshots incorporate Goran Svensson’s HD walls & landscapes, Freeverse’s HD weapons, and in some cases W’rkncacnter’s BRUTAL MARATHON plugin. I only spent about twenty minutes on these – they’re probably nowhere near the best sights Gemini Station has to offer. (Also, you probably shouldn’t actually use these plugins with it – certain game functionality is highly likely to break or not look as intended.)
