[2023-07-26 update: New scripts added: "Aperture in Tank Myopia", "As the Dream Seeps Into and Dissolves You", "Current Prison & the Myriad Deceit", "Forced to the Finejoust", "Obscura in the Celestial Gaze", and "The False Promise of Conditioned Currency".]
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?
"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!
"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.
"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.
"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!
"Forced to the Finejoust"
All players are always stuck looking down at a 30-degree angle, so you have to either get real close or be up on a ledge to get your enemy.
"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!
"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).
"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 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!
"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:
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:

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).
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.
WARNING: By saying 'Truly Amazing', we are sarcastic. Here is just some cool physics that make some things cool and somethings just down right irrelephant...
-Aliens are not friendly to any
-All guns do the same amount of damage -All projectiles travel at the same speed -All projectiles are guided
-Projectile Damage is 3/4 of your health
Are you tired of dying because you suck? Are you tired of dying because you were busy with your movement hand eating an ice cream cone? Are you tired of dying because the unskillful n00bs pwned you with h4xx0r weapons? Well fear no more! Professional Instagib is here to get rid of all of your complexity problems! Porfessional Instagib is not just any instagib mod, it has changes!!! From the creators of the MML music switch comes... Professional Instagib!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read the rules and setup guide! Just because you know how this works doesn't mean you know how this works! Version 1.0 will always be available when future versions come out.
This shapes, sounds, and physics pack is designed to make the play of Marathon Infinity more realistic. In future, I may modify even more of the game's workings, such as monster movement speeds or attack speeds.
NOTE: This physics model is not designed for multiplayer use; it would make the weapons incredibly overpowered and many maps almost unplayable.
A comprehensive list of changes can be found in the Read-me file.
The original Marathon weapons were not really designed with people in mind. They were designed to be effective against slow and stupid aliens that could not dodge shots and could not operate their weaponry while they were being blasted by the player. Human players are a bit more intelligent, and faster than that.
Note that this is not designed with monsters in mind!
This physics model addresses those changes and has undergone thorough balance testing during its development. Weapon switching delay is now nearly non-existant and random damage has been taken out of the game. Weapons that would normally never see action in an otherwise SPNKR filled multiplayer match can now go up against a SPNKR armed player under the right conditions.

(more thorough changelog in readme) - Speed increase of all regular bullets up to 4096. - Alien Weapon is now a dual function with a regular primary trigger but secondary trigger set as chargeable long range high damage weapon - The good old automatic KKV-7 SMG is back. - Bug fix: Enforcers now use "unused 1" shot slot instead of Alien Weapon Blast so not to make them overpowered
This physics package changes monster behavior so that many of the enemies will begin fighting each-other. Robotic characters (Drones, Juggernauts, and A-Bobs) will attack just about everything.
Added another version of the main physics file, called 'RAMBO'.
See the ReadMe file for more information.
one shot kills physics; i tried to keep a balance, so most weapons will have modifications!
plz enjoy and review, also if u think something can be inproved or u would like me to create some other bunch of physics just let me know! =D
A pack of physics models that all mod the flamethrower. One has infinite range, one has infinite range and travels faster, one makes it very inaccurate. By now hopefully you know: 1) how to use a physics file, 2) to not use on a merged map, and 3) don't review without trying it out first.
I think anybody can make this easily within a minute.
Yeah, just another crappy physics file. Made it a long time ago. Like all physics files, don't use on a merged map. CHANGES:shotgun shoots fusion bolts with blast radius, AR and SMG fires a larger burst (3 and 4 at a time) and shoot faster. AR bullets are powered up just a little. AR grenades have no changes; the AR just fires 5 at a time even though it might not look like it. Again, this is a PHYSICS MODEL, not a script. So don't use on a map with embedded physics. Also, FloatingX, TTEP and WEP not included. Get them in Simplici7y (except for the FloatingX; that's a 1-of-a-kind floatingx i made by modding Treellama's FloatingX. It's not posted anywhere to download.) Also, I made Super Magnum Physics ;) I just wanted to change my name. Also, the Ray Shotgun was not named after Ray. The idea of a "Ray Gun" was invented by H.G. Wells, a famous writer. "A very early example of a raygun is the Heat-Ray featured in H. G. Wells' novel The War of the Worlds (1898)." (Information page: bit.ly/eDTJ1l )
OMG! ARNOLD'S DAMN MINIGUN!
Mods the magnum. Twice the recoil of a rocket launcher, and the power of a rocket launcher, without the explosion. Enjoy. PS THIS IS A PHYSICS FILE NOT A SCRIPT OR MAP. DONT USE ON A MERGED MAP. OMG. Why does everyone hate all my uploads? even the good ones? The ones that they TOLD me to upload? Really, I think I am going to start keeping my creations to myself.
Whatever. Less recoil. P.S. If you are wondering where my other uploads went, it seems nobody likes them. Plus, they were the original property of Treellama. This is the only one that I really made. Oh well. P.P.S. The above is in the readme.
another physics, i made this things when im bored! hope u like! plz rate and comment!
remenber that every weapon has changes! secondary trigger of the AR may crash the game, idk why and i hope it doesnt! hope u enjoy and if u have time plz comment! =)
Physics model, the last of many I've made. Here are the changes: --Pistol: No change (although a little buggy with the shapes) --shotgun: Now shoots flame rounds --Fusion: bolts look different, but function basically the same. --AR: shoots orange drone bolts, grenades bounce and have bigger, blue explosions. --SMG: shoots persistent/virulent bolts that act like grenades. Looks really cool, my favorite weapon. --Flamer: shoots a beam of fire that looks like the alien weapon from M2/Inf. --Rocket: Wave Motion Cannon. Persistent and virulent, looks like a giant fusion bolt and has a huge blast radius.
Also comes with Kimblee_Shapes, the shapes file needed to run it properly, otherwise you'll just get wierdly colored sprites.
Versions 1-14 i kept to myself, but it is still a work in progress and as such any suggestions are welcome. I have some older physics models i made, and if anyone wants them i will upload those too.
