This is a slightly modified version of Hopper's M2 Default HUD. It moves the HUD to the lower left corner of the screen and allows for fullscreen mode without any black bar. This works for any non-M1 scenario.

Thanks to wrkncacnter for the additional scripting.

Notes for version 1.1:

Fixed margins so the lua console can be viewed. Thanks to Terin in the Marathon Discord for fixing this!

Replaces the 2d scenery sprites with 3d models in Marathon 1

Note: works best in shader mode.

Make sure bloom is turned off!

Obviously some errors can't be avoided, but I have done my best to smooth over as many bumps as possible.

Notes for version 1.2:

-Replaced the escape pod model with a much better one

-Changed the pfhor egg to be more like the original (an egg)

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.

This plugin replaces most of the original Jjarro props with 4x resolution rendered versions.

-The sun sprite is not replaced yet, but I have no idea where it shows up anyway.

-The broken light fixtures are not replaced either, as the game doesn't let you break Jjarro lights.

Notes for version 1.0:

The next version will probably include the star and unused broken lights

This plugin replaces all the textures in marathon infinity's lava set with 512x512 versions. I have sought to stay true to the originals and I hope it shows. Version 2 includes major updates to all textures. Bump maps are now supported. Make sure to check that out!

Notes for version 2.05:

2.0 New release with major texture upgrades and bump maps

2.05 Removal of bright line from texture 018.

These bump maps are designed to create simple depth using the original textures. Also included are glow masks!

Note that there is an alternative version of these bump maps featuring shallower grooves and indentations (50% Depth).

Screenshot titled "Preview (click to animate)"

Back when items were strictly 2D sprites, there was little reason to care about their facing angle. We now have plugins that replace items with 3D models, yet in nearly all existing maps all weapons and ammo face the same direction.

This plugin addresses this cosmetic oddity by making all items slowly rotate (yaw), as seen in other shooters like Quake and Unreal. The 2D sprites were easy to identify because you could see them in profile from any angle. This animation restores that property, and the movement also makes them stand out more. Unfortunately, because the script physically manipulates the items in the environment, it's only expected to work in single player.

I've been using this for myself ever since thedoctor45 released his excellent 3D items plugin in February 2012. However, it's very simple and should work with any 3D items, for any scenario. Anyone making a "3D items" or similar plugin is welcome to bundle this into their work; one look at the lua and you'll see how simple the effect is to create.

This is a slightly modified version of Hopper's M1A1 HUD. It moves the HUD to the lower left corner of the screen and allows for fullscreen mode without any black bar. This should work for any Aleph One scenario, including M1.

I also made a few small edits to the HUD itself for aesthetics and transparency.

Thanks to wrkncacnter for the additional scripting.

I (Aaron / The Man) have repackaged Goran Svensson’s Marathon Infinity textures, which were released as five separate plugins, as a single plugin, mostly for the sake of reducing clutter and clicking in our Infinity plugin menus (i.e., if you want to enable one of these, you’ll probably want to enable them all).

In my book, these are by far the best Marathon Infinity texture replacements available (unless you’re using MaraToon; then you should use MaraToon for everything), and they’re certainly the most faithful.

I used Goran’s most recent releases of the Water, Lava, Jjaro, and Pfhor sets; I used kaosof’s edit of the Sewage set with added bump maps. See the included readme for additional information; each set also includes its original documentation within its respective folder.

Screenshots coming when I feel like it.

Enjoy!

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.

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.

Screenshot titled "After #2"

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:

Alpha's Redux 2.2

3371-Alpha on 02/22/2016

Screenshot titled "My Blaster Run's Hot"

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.

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.

Notes for version 1.01:

Added M2 landscapes, took down the hosted version and left the link on my drive

Screenshot titled "Yoga Fire!"

A plugin for the original weapons-in-hand graphics for Aleph One, featuring: - Different looking muzzle flash with blended edges. - Motion blur on certain frames, including bullet shells and the fists. - An optional translucent scope effect for the magnum.

Works with both Marathon 2 and Marathon Infinity!

Notes for version 1.5:
  • Removed black halo around edges of the optional graphics for the Marathon 2 SMG.
  • Optional graphics for the Marathon 2 SMG have been made powers of 2.

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: MUSIC DOES NOT LOOP ENDLESSLY. This is intended. Many levels have added silence to allow the ambience some time on the stage. This silence is not a bug. Each level has been assigned specific tracks to emphasize narrative beats, emotional highlights, atmosphere, and overall vibe. If you would like looping versions of the songs, you can get them for free via the bandcamp link (click Buy Album then enter $0).

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.

Notes for version High Quality Update:

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