Visual Mode is a plugin that allows you to texture maps in Aleph One. It supports almost all features of Forge's visual mode, plus OpenGL, multiple texture sets, and more. Requires Aleph One 1.7.
Aleph One 1.7 is now required!
Vasara is a Lua script and dedicated HUD for use in texturing maps in Aleph One. The HUD provides more explanation for new users compared to Visual Mode, and features a mouse-driven interface for choosing textures and options.
This version works with Marathon 2 (as long as you ignore the 4th landscape slot).
Finally, a plugin that ruins mararthon.
This is a plugin for any marathon scenario that will act kind of like GPS navigation when activated. It can show just about any worthwhile objective on the map, and in most cases lead you directly to them.
This is a huge cheat, so it's not really recommended if you want the "true" marathon experience. It's for people that either don't have the patience to navigate through mazes themselves, or for people that just want to make sure they found everything on a given level. It can be very useful for tracking down all secrets.
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.
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.
-Replaced the escape pod model with a much better one
-Changed the pfhor egg to be more like the original (an egg)
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!
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.
Added M2 landscapes, took down the hosted version and left the link on my drive
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.
The next version will probably include the star and unused broken lights
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.
This is a high resolution landscape plugin for Marathon Infinity. It replaces all landscapes with 4096x2160 PNG versions.
Please note, if your copmputer have difficulties at using these large landscapes, there's an alternative download, where all landscapes have been reduced to 2048x1080. Check out: http://www.simplici7y.com/items/gorans-highres-2048x1080-landscapes-plugin
1.0 First Release
1.01 Fixed MML Error
1.2 Changed image type from DDS to PNG to improve overall image quality. Gradients are now much smoother.
A horrible virus is affecting everything around you.
The only way you know how to deal with the situation is to spread it around as much as possible, and kill everything that remains.
(A plugin compatible with Marathon 2, Infinity, or similar scenarios.)
The main thing to know about this plugin is that if you're going to refer to it, you must use ALL CAPS.
Along with that, you should know that it adds extra gore to every monster that dies. Some monsters spill blood when you shoot them. Bullets/explosions leave marks on the ground and walls. All changes are purely visual. The amount of gore you see is configurable (see readme for details).
This is compatible with M2 and Infinity, and any other scenario that largely uses unmodified versions of those monsters.
Hd Replacements for:
Weapons Projectiles Most Items
Version 1.1 includes: -tweaked weapon size and position -new animations for rocket and grenade detonation -new bullet impact effect -new trooper grenade projectile -fixed color tables for spht bolt
...and probably some other minor fixes that I forgot about.
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.
Working on 3D models for Aleph One? Having trouble with lighting? This plugin lets you visualize the in-game normals, so you can get your objects looking their best. Use with the Shader renderer.
