Screenshot titled "Strange Aeons"

An original fan soundtrack for Marathon Infinity, composed by Talashar. Featuring themes from Marathon, Halo, and M2SE. This won't just be a mashup of themes you know though, levels and character have been given their own themes to provide a new dimension to the game. Experience Infinity in a whole new way. Based on Treellama's M2SE plugin.

Preview my music here: https://talashar.bandcamp.com/album/strange-aeons

Note that Electric Sheep levels are silent, many levels have silence at the end of tracks for level ambience to take the stage, and some are also delayed in playing. This is intended. Each level has been assigned specific tracks to emphasize narrative beats, emotional highlights, atmosphere, and overall vibe.

Recommended volume levels are 100% Master, 70% Music.

If you run into any issues with this plugin, I can be found in the Marathon Discord as @throkgaar.

Enjoy.

Slight tweaks to timing and higher quality .ogg files with Metadata.

M2 Pepperscapes 🌶️

Tired of seeing the same 4 landscapes over and over when playing marathon 2? Why not give each level its own unique landscape?

Just put this into your Marathon 2 Plugins folder. You'll never know how you lived without it.

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

Pepper HUD 1.0

W'rkncacnter on 08/05/2023

Screenshot titled "Default"

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.

Screenshot titled "After #1"

Rubicon X was released a long time ago, when Aleph One didn’t have bloom and when its monster activation limits were, by default, much higher than they are now. It hasn’t been updated since, so running it out of the box with no changes has several problems: monsters will randomly deactivate on several levels, and the bloom looks horrible because it defaults to overpoweringly high levels. I’ve created this plugin as an “all-in-one” fix for both these issues. It restores the monster activation limits to their intended values, and it makes the game look decent with bloom.

To run this, just put it in your Rubicon X plugins folder. (If you don’t have one, make a new “Plugins” folder in the “Rubicon X” folder – NOT the “Rubicon Data” folder – and stick this in it.) If you currently have Rubicon X running, you’ll need to quit the app and reload it.

Notes for version 1.0:

First release.

There were some manual edits done to the fighter shapes to keep their staves/glow maps consistent between frames. The inconsistencies were obvious with the higher definition monsters, so thanks to Aaron for cleaning up the originals.

Err... uhm... so i did it? The whole Infinity [and M2] spritesets and images (still minus the Player, sigh) but in a more cartoon-ish format.

The link goes to my GDrive. EDIT 2023/12/14: The permissions went haywire. I'll try to correct as soon as I can. EDIT 2023/12/14: The permissions seems correct now.

Marathon OST 2021 1.4

ckt1138 on 03/14/2021

Screenshot titled ""

The entire Marathon OST meticulously restored with new instruments and better production value.

Unlike most M1 music replacers, this one does NOT try to heavily alter the original composition nor is it simply a sound font swap. I remixed everything inside of FL Studio 20 with high quality VST instruments and (occasionally) real hardware synths and sounds. My goal was to create a faithful reinterpretation of the OST with mostly appropriate sounds (nothing more modern than 1990's electronic instruments, etc) but with a better overall balance and less cheap sound. I'm extremely proud of the outcome, and I think fans of the original game and its score will really appreciate it too!

This download contains a FLAC and OGG version, to replace the in game music, simply drop the OGG files into the "Music" folder in your Marathon directory.

If Aleph One is ever updated to allow gapless looping of music, I will create a loopable mix.

(if you enjoyed this music, check out fragileforms.bandcamp.com , where I post my original music as MetaMorphosys)

Tick Rider 0.2?

Kuurin on 02/18/2021

Screenshot titled "1st-person view from Tick Stew"

Soar on the wings of a bowl of spoiled pudding!

Ride on a tick, and fight from the sky!

Jump from tick to tick, or abuse the improbable physics of whatever a tick is made of to boost yourself over long distances! Blast the tick out from under your foes! Ride on the wrong tick and explode!

The possibilities are endless!

This fun and mildly-insane netscript is best suited to larger maps with open spaces. And it's even better with lava. Try it and you'll soon understand why!

Highly configurable, with various weird secrets and bizarre instances of what may possibly pass for humor. Try adding your own nonsense – Amuse, bemuse, or disgust your friends!

This package includes one shoddy, simplistic, yet lovable and purpose-made netmap, Tick Stew, that will allow you to explore the possibilities in various networked gametypes or just by yourself in a solo game.

Take to the un-friendly skies and become a Tick Rider today!

Notes for version 0.2?:
  • Position ticks out of impassable polygons.

  • Deal with some Lua errors caused by exceeding monster limits with too many ticks.

  • Added super-informative read-me documentation.

  • Added special Tick-Netmap "Cavendish Tick Catastrophe"

A set of remastered sounds for AOPID: http://simplici7y.com/items/aleph-one-pathways-into-darkness

These are 6 dB quieter than the originals (an attached text file explains why), but also significantly less noisy, much crisper due to the addition of higher frequencies that were absent from the originals, and in some cases free of substantial audio flaws like 60 Hz hum on a lot of the Headless sounds or digital clipping distortion on some of the explosion and weapon sounds.

Note that most of these are not exact reconstructions of the missing audio data, but best guesses that I put together in iZotope RX5 Advanced; in a few cases, however, I was able to use the CD-quality audio sources. Also, make sure you have 16-bit audio on, or you’ll get the original sounds. I also suggest pairing these with W’rkncacnter’s HD AOPID graphics for best results: http://simplici7y.com/items/hd-aopid-graphics

Enjoy!

Trojan M2 HUD 1.0

jamos05 on 10/07/2020

Screenshot titled ""

Port of the Trojan M2 HUD to work with the latest release of Trojan for Aleph One. Fills the screen more than the original M1 HUD, but not as much as the Trojan Fullscreen HUD.

Note that there is a known issue with the Alien weapon not connecting to the right side of the screen. See https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/issues/222

Notes for version 1.0:

1.0 -- Original release

1,323 downloads, 0 reviews, 2 screenshots

Screenshot titled ""

This is a version of the Fullscreen Corner HUD that is made to work with Trojan in Aleph One. It moves the HUD to the lower left corner of the screen and allows for fullscreen mode without any black bar.

The HUD graphics are from the M2 port of Trojan, which doesn't take up the full screen like the original does.

Notes for version 1.2:

Removed the alternative shapes file since the gap happens even without my fullscreen plugin.
