How to have each Marathon game on the same device.

Hey I was curious,
How do you have each Marathon game on the same device? I want to have all three on the same device. I'm running Kubuntu. Thanks!

I don't know about Linux, so I can't be very helpful for you. What I do know is that Any instance of Aleph One will create a general folder somewhere, and you should move all of your games under that umbrella. This way, when you click on the Aleph One icon, it will allow you to select game.

Thanks, just one thing...
The instructs for the game files on linux say to run "alephone"
Logically, there are multiple instances of Alpehone, so... What one should it run?

You can set the ALEPHONE_DATA environment variable to point to the game files you want to use, before running Aleph One. So

Code: Select all
ALEPHONE_DATA=/usr/share/Marathon\ 2 alephone
could run Marathon 2, and
Code: Select all
ALEPHONE_DATA=/usr/share/Marathon\ Infinity alephone
could run Infinity. For instance. Install them wherever you like.
