Latest Version of M1A1

Post Jan 3rd '18, 16:35

Where would I download the absolute last version of M1A1? And I mean M1A1, back when it couldn't really use the original Marathon files. I'm curious because I've been toying with the idea of a Marathon Redux that would use the M1A1 assets as a starting point, but the problem is that since M1A1 is outdated, it's hard to find the last version that was made. I have a version of M1A1 already, but I can't tell if it's the last version or not - I downloaded it from here, if that's any help.

That's the latest version I'm aware of.

The M1A1 assets are weird. Definitely did some kludgey things in the shapesfile.

I really wanted to wait until I had a two-level demo ready, but there seems to be a lot of interest in this at the moment. Ought I to release a pre-alpha of what I'm doing to rally the troops?

Synchronistically enough, the files I've built for this are labelled "M1R." I hadn't settled on a name yet, but Marathon 1 Redux has a nice ring to it.

Releasing a pre-alpha sounds like a good idea.

Yes, I'd love to see whatever progress you've made so far. A two-level proof of concept could go a long way towards getting this ball rolling.

Hmm. Okay. I'll stop playing Endless Sky and set myself a deadline: This Saturday at 1830W.

Would any of you happen to have a link to the original releases of M1A1? I want the last version of the map and shapes file that still had the Pathways easter egg. Other than that, I'm looking for the latest Windows release that had the .exe. I'd hate to have to throw the github files together with another copy of Aleph One.

I don't know if M1A1 ever came with its own executable, but here's one of the old releases:
