Hello everyone :)

All right, let's get down to business xD

I really love the Marathon games, both the canon and the â??fan madeâ??. Aleph One it's beautifully well done, great resource to play all the games.

I have a doubt, annnd something tells me you can help me with that :)

To the date this are the Marathon games I have in possession:


Marathon 1 (and of course â??M1A1â??, great conversion)

Marathon 2 Durandal (my favorite of the canon games)

Marathon Infinity (this one it's really weird xD)


The following as everyone knows are â??fan madeâ??:


Marathon Eternal X

Marathon Evil

Marathon Phoenix

Marathon Red

Marathon Rubicon X

Marathon Tempus Irae


Each one has its charms, seriously. But I have a question: Is one of the famous missing me? One that can be downloaded with your help, beautiful people? :)

Oh please, help me here ^^

I liked Marathon Trojan quite a bit. It's a (very) total conversion for the original M1. I really hope the upcoming M1 Support will also allow us to finally play this on Aleph One.

There's also Return to Marathon, which might be good to play around Halloween ;). Sadly, it's unfinished, but the first chapter is up and still worth playing.

You can grab 'em both at The Big House, among several other scenarios.

EDIT: Added site links

Love Marathon, and also play Doom on modern source ports? You might like these skins!

Totally agree with President People, those are good.

Also look for Excalibur Morgana's Revenge and Tempus Irae 2: The Lost Levels, if you haven't.

Unfortunately, it would still require conversion, at least into a format that modern PCs can read, and we don't have permission to do that. I think this one is destined to run only in an emulator.

If you could run the file converters yourself (I do believe they're called shuttles) could you play it or would the resulting game files require further conversion? I'm aware you still wouldn't be able to distribute them.

Missing out big time if you haven't played Excalibur.

If you can run the converters, presumably you can just run the original :)

Operation Tantalus is neat, albeit it seems to be trying to be a Hexen hub and gets confusing, it's not a bad approach.
