Q: Where can I find Pfhorge?
A: Right here. Also, note that Pfhorge is Mac OS X -only. No Windows, OS 9 or Linux version exists and probably will not exist.

i find "ryans light blue ball" but no goal.

I tried it on the original king of pain, and the original route 66. nothing.
Also, i have another question:
Why do some map icons look like this:[attachment=905:Picture_5.png] while others look like this:[attachment=904:Picture_4.png], and why can't i open the latter in forge?

You have to use a rugby map for rugby. Go figure.

yes, i just realized that since rugby wasn't an original marathon setting, there would be no filter for it (ie: you could choose any map you wanted, even if it wasn't a rugby map). whoops.

will you answer my other question, plz? ty

use the a1 filetype repair tools
Its just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV. Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?

Yes, Marathon takes longer to load maps if you have the enhancements installed.

i know, but why does that affect the other ppl? i can load them fine by myself, and presumably they other ppl get the map w/o the enhancements, that's what i thought. also, it's not the "loading" screen, it's the black screeen but with sounds (you know what i'm talking about) that tells me that all the pplz have gotten the map, cuz if they hadn't, i would still be on the "w8ing for others to load" screen.

If you have original Infinity on your HD OSX might give the infinity map icon to all infinity maps.

The loading screen you see is just for you...that screen doesn't show how much time is left for other people...just you. The "waiting for others to load" screen is the black screen you see...

Infinity was make before jumping existed. Don't you ever wonder why your parents didn't know what a trampoline is?

Nope, because I feigned stupid.


Anyway, that's what I would say if I was a Halo Noob and stumbled across Marathon yesterday, but fortunately, I'm not one of them.

Man I was just playing some Doom on Doom Legacy (its kinda boring after the first two scenarios), and yes you can jump. Unfortunately the gravity is such (on Mars no less) and your jump is so low that there's basically nothing to be gained from jumping.

Just assume Mjoldnirs are too cool to jump, which they are.

No, atleast I didn't and don't. I read 2 or 3 things when I joined, but that was it.
