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.

A project to give Marathon 1 a facelift, incorporating the new features of Aleph One to flesh out and add realism to the Marathon's architecture. Eventually, to include a branching storyline- possibly even missions on the colony moon.
Featuring Marathon 1 with lua scripting, liquids, ambient sound, new weapons, more scenery, improved sprites, expanded architecture, new terms & terminal art, and the latest HD plugins. Also including Craig Hardgrove's soundtrack, you can visit his page over at themarathonmusic.com !
At this point M1R should contain a complete, playable, almost bug-free recreation of M1, however, I still consider this an alpha as there are many more features and levels to come, and other features present that will be cut.
To contribute to this project, download it and read the "Help Wanted.txt" and/or TODO.txt," or head over to the Pfhorums where the lists and discussion are posted: http://pfhorums.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=53510
WINDOWS USERS PLEASE NOTE Marathon 1 Redux's extensive HD and 3D assets may cause 32-bit builds of Aleph One to crash immediately upon starting a game. To resolve this issue, you will have to experiment with turning off plugins or reducing texture replacement resolution to taste.

In the original Marathon 1 game for Macintosh, there is a white screen flash fader that happens when you teleport in. I created a .lua script to emulate this behavior. Installation instructions included.
This is an initial version that works perfectly fine most of the time. However, if you manage to shoot yourself across a map at a high rate of speed (i.e. from a rocket), that may falsely trip the teleport detector.
This is a version of the Marathon 1 Hd Weapons Pack that has been made compatible with the old M1A1 release.
As such, this will not work with current versions of aleph one, using the original files.
All credit for making this compatible with M1A1 goes to to Thedoctor45.
This simple modification to the FloatingX LUA script file adds an ammunition counter to the Alien Weapon using the M1A1 FloatingX HUD. In keeping with the style of the FloatingX HUD, the ammo counter jitters and flickers back and forth to mimic the static effect seen when the Alien Weapon is selected.
To install, download the M1A1 version of the FloatingX HUD plugin, back up the FloatingX.lua script file inside, and replace it with this one.
Simple code change to the FloatingX.lua file included with the M1A1 FloatingX HUD.
These Sounds files were third-party replacements for the original M1.
The original files were created by The Legendary Frank. I have converted them to Aleph One format for use with M1A1.
The first one is the latest version. The second was included with the M1 Demo v0.0 on my old Mac Cube. Also included are the original M1 files.
Simply place this folder within your scenario folder or Aleph One directory, select either file in your Environment Preferences, Begin New Game, strap in and brace for impact! Enjoy!
From the manual for the latest version, written by The Legendary Frank:
"Enclosed is a file called HardCoreSounds. It's an alternate sound file for Marathon 1 that, once you change it's name to Sounds and start up Marathon will rip your ears off and give you a week long nose bleed. (Well hopefully not -- I don't need to get sued.) But, sufice to say, this is THE sound file to turn Marathon 1 into non stop extravganza of butchery and carnage the the game is supposed to be. So, turn off the lights, strap on some headphones and then try to stop your knees from knocking as you go 'Damn! That'll hurt bad!'
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use if you can't stand cuss words, loud noises, or anything that would offend normal people. These sounds ain't PC or nice. No Cub Scouts or PTA moms.

M1A1 Fixes is a plugin that makes the scenario a little closer to the original Marathon.
This first version has 3 fixes:
Remove the "Pathways into Darkness" opening
Restore the BoBs' soft-death sequences
Limit the player to a single fist (sadly not the left one)
The "No PiD" plugin is not necessary or compatible with this plugin, so please uninstall or disable it before trying M1A1 Fixes.
For the first time in digital quality, you can hear Marathon's music as it first shipped in 1994.
The default M1A1 tracks use QuickTime 2.5, released in 1996, which changed some of the instruments. These files were recorded with QuickTime 2.0, which shipped with Marathon, to capture what it sounded like when Bungie first released the game.
There have been a few renditions of a FloatingX for M1A1, but non of them looked like they belonged in the actual game of Marathon.
This version matches the interface of the real game, and has the same floaty goodness of FloatingX.
The screenshots are actually from Legend, and the version i captured is slightly out of date, so there may be some very very minor differences.
Finally, The Health and Oxygen bars are misaligned by one pixel... Because of this small margin, I cannot correct it. And yes, I have tried.
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:
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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!
"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.
"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.
"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.
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.
Original M1 maps by Chris Painter.
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:
Enjoy your carnage.
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)
Busywork (carnage craziness)
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.
Version 1.1 corrects lighting phase issue encountered in the M1A1 conversion and also merges proper M1A1 physics into each map.
NOTE: This September 1995 map has been converted to M1A1 as part of "The M1 Map Conversion Project" (see enclosed Read Me for details).
A nighttime Pfhor city scene. A solo adventure with no real goal aside from fun and exploration. Challenging; nice to look at.
Original M1 version by Stephen Ritchie.
Version 1.2 corrects lighting phase problem from M1A1 conversion (building searchlight now "rotates" properly) and adds merged M1A1 physics.
By popular demand, the The M1 Map Conversion Project has been rebooted.
Starting now, all further releases of converted M1 maps will be realized as "Netpacks" of ten (10) maps each, and with M1A1 physics merged.
In this Netpack:
The enclosed Read Me contains convenient links to all the current versions of M1A1 (the "Special Edition" release), its hi-res textures, and other assorted items.
"Hats-off" to the old-time Marathoners who started it all.
