[2022-12-22 update: New script-and-physics combo added, "Realization Through Ensnarement". Another new Lua script was just added yesterday, "Bringing All Back to the Raw Cult".]
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.
What do these do?
"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.
"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 may render many singleplayer levels unbeatable, mainly due to issues with platforms, but it can make for a new, interesting, and funny multiplayer experience.
"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!
"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).
"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.
“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.
“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!
"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.

A fusion pistol physics for those who like playing on BROWN, or rounds with the Fusionize script. Basically makes it stronger, dare I say crazy. :P
The primary fire is the usual major/overload bolt, and the secondary fire shoots the major dispersal bolt. Basically the damage amount is the same, however it also has splash damage, so be careful with distance.
Admittedly this idea is not completely originally mine. It's very similar to how the fusion pistol operates in the 9 Minutes 37 Seconds scenario.
While I can't stop you from using it as such, it's not intended for games that don't only have the fusion pistol, so keep that in mind.

This is the 1996 CD "Pfhrenzy" found on the Macintosh Repository here.
There was some interest in this CD on the Marathon Discord server when I pointed out this CD. Not everyone wanted to bother with emulating Mac OS, but they still wanted to see the maps at least, which can be played with modern Aleph One. Thus, I emulated it myself, and transferred all the files off of the CD and zipped them up for people to look over on whatever OS they preferred.
For this reason, most of the files will look weird or not work at all on Windows or Linux, or perhaps even Mac. I have done nothing to the files themselves aside from put them through 7zip.

A physics-to-JSON and JSON-to-physics utility that creates human-readable output useful for version control systems such as
git. You can then edit these JSON files using a text editor, another program, etc. and turn them into physics files. Also included are utility scripts for:
- viewing differences between
gitcommits for physics, between any two non-tracked files, or between some mixture of these
- retroactively building a parallel set of commits for a JSON version of one or more physics files' existing history
- automatically generating JSON for every committed physics file, bundling the JSON into the commit
Source code and binaries are available on my website; also available there are signatures for individual binaries. I recommend using them to verify whichever you might run.
For verification purposes, here is my public key fingerprint:
Notes for version rolling:
Rolling release based on the current production branch of code.

This mod drastically changes the gameplay of Marathon!
Combat is much more fierce. This is like Marathon on steroids. Experience it for yourself.
*This mod establishes a new oxygen system:
- You start with 2 minutes worth of oxygen (average human breath time.) -When you go into an environment in which you cannot breathe, you will start holding your breath. Be careful you don't black out! Holding your breath for too long makes you delirious, you know.
- Luckily, if you make it to air in time, you can catch your breath and get those 2 minutes of air back.
Oxygen tanks now add tank oxygen to your total air capacity. When your tanks run out, you start holding your breath.
It is also possible to become delirious from being in a near death state.
Monsters and weapons are now more accurate and lethal, and travel at high speeds much closer to reality.
Physics are changed, especially gravity, which is more realistically amplified from the low-grav Marathon stock physics. NOTE: this may make some jumping puzzles unsolvable. Gravity has been changed to closely match that of Earth (on standard gravity maps).
Notes for version 1.0:
This can certainly be improved upon, but for now, it's stable and it works.

This is a simple physics file that uses a modified version of the physics file found merged into the level "You Think You're Big Time? You're Gonna Die Big Time!". This "project" initially began as a way to humor myself but I found out that it is actually lots of fun to play around with using the Survival game type, so I began trimming stats until I was happy with the difficulty.
For the most part, all you need to know is-
Most enemies are now completely gray, good luck guessing rank between fighters! Major troopers and major hunters now drop x1 HP powerups Slight increase in enemy vitality across the board Slight increase in enemy projectile speed across the board Fighters move very quickly, troopers are more grenade happy, hunter projectiles now track their target (just like in YTYBT?YGDBT!)

"Thresholds of Rite" is a level built for Tempus Irae in the style of a Wolfenstein 3D level -- that is to say, no variation in floor or ceiling height (save for obstacles). It has slightly modified textures and physics, along with a new NEFX music track that plays in-game (if you have music turned on).
To get the track to run, just drag the Music folder into your Tempus Irae folder along with the map and it should run. If it doesn’t for whatever reason, say so in the comments. If nothing else, you can just listen to the music separately, loop it on a media player while you play, or simply go without.
Much thanks to Windbreaker for helping me with a lot of the technical hurdles, as well as playing through the level and offering a couple of good tips in design. You are a true comrade.
