You know what, since this thread"s not really going anywhere do you mind if I tangent it off a little by asking why you guys haven't made Aleph One compatible with Pathways into Darkness? I noticed it uploaded to Macintosh Garden a while back & wanted to try it since. Also, I already know there's a PiD remake/replica hidden in the scripts section of Simplici7y, but it's Infinity themed main menu gives it an incomplete feel.

No, that sounds like a good idea.

Oh, you're asking me why I personally haven't done it? I don't do that kind of thing.

Regardless of where this thread has gone, the Pfhorums will stay better organized if you start a new thread for a whole new avenue of discussion like Pathways into Darkness.

However since you've already asked the question, the answer is largely the same reason, just to a different degree, that Halo has not been made compatible with Minotaur, or that a chicken could not breed with a Tyrannosaurus.

The modern option for playing Pathways into Darkness today is the Cocoa port released on the Mac App Store, which requires OS X 10.6 and a 64-bit processor. I don't think any other ports exist.

Dodorexes are possible, so I don't see why a chicken would be so impossible. Have you actually tried?

So I take it Bungie never released the source to PiD. Damn! To be fair, the reason I asked is because I remember reading somewhere (don't feel like finding a source at the moment) that although PiD & the Marathon series use different engines, the engines are closely related. In fact Aleph One is essentially just the PiD engine's descendant. Not sure if it's true, but it's what I read.

I think I may have found another PiD OS X port here. It's only available in source code. That means I'm going to have to dust off good ol' gcc again.

I was going to release my cross platform port of PiD after I finished my 3d marathon project, but you guys were really mean to me. The community doesn't deserve it now.

I haven't been mean to you. Also, in the short time I've been in this community, I've learned that you should just treat all insults (or at least iron/wrk/patrick's) as a joke.
