Checkpoints 1.0

Hopper on 01/17/2016

Checkpoints is an implementation of Halo-style automatic saved games in the middle of a level. Mapmakers use annotations to mark where checkpoints should occur, and the Lua script does the rest. It also creates a save point after each level transition.

Includes a sample map. Find all seven checkpoints!

For mapmakers testing their terminal scripts, this Lua console command will set the current level's completion state to "finished". Install this solo Lua plugin and type 'complete_level()' in the console to satisfy any mission requirements.

Note: the command may make the level unplayable. See the included Read Me file for more information.

Red Light 1.1

Hopper on 02/16/2014

Play "Red Light, Green Light" during net games. It's fun.

Notes for version 1.1:

Version 1.1 adds a message when someone runs a red light, and a sound when the yellow turns red. Thanks to Sharkie Lino and his play-testing crew for the changes.

This plugin increases the number of AI monsters active at any one time. The increased number was the default setting in Aleph One until 1.1, when the Marathon 2/Infinity defaults were restored.

You should use this plugin with scenarios built specifically for Aleph One, such as Eternal X, Kill Them All, or Phoenix. When/if those scenarios are updated, you will no longer need this plugin. Do not enable the plugin for scenarios orginally designed for Marathon Infinity, such as Tempus Irae.

VML Mute 1.0

Hopper on 06/11/2013

Update: this plugin and goran's Visual Mode Lua Physics are no longer necessary with Visual Mode 3.0. Use that instead!

VML Mute replaces the default monster activation and teleport sounds with silence. You will see the teleport effects, but hear only the ambient noises of the level.

The original Marathon game interface, ported to Aleph One as a Lua HUD. Designed for use with M1A1 or Aleph One 1.0. It will not work with the native Marathon 1 downloads bundled with Aleph One 1.1 and later. A compatible version may be found in those downloads.

After three years, the first project I ever started in Aleph One is complete. Happy Bungie Day.

real LUA xperts get hungry Lua Scripting guide for dummies

Hopper on Apr 1st, 2016, Version zipped

Hey W'rk, Sparklo and I were wondering, when you got hungry at the end of this guide did you eat a sandwich, and if so, what kind of sandwich? I will change my rating to 1 star if you do not reply.

Ends too soon Susannah OSX

Hopper on Oct 22nd, 2013, Version 1.0

Brilliant use of Aleph One -- the style perfectly plays to the engine's strengths. I can't recall a better use of fog. The pacing drifts from "deliberate" to "tedious" at times, and the abrupt ending lacked closure. Despite that and some minor student-project bugs (a few untextured sides and geometry issues), it's a fresh approach to Aleph One mods and a must-play for fans of art games.

Poor Hamish all friend phisic model

Nothing but porridge morning, noon, and night, and then he gets trolled by bastards who can't stand MBO actually posting anything new.

Also, custom physics models don't work in Infinity so minus a million stars.
