Pfhor the want of a Joueur [Confirmed to work 23.04.2019]

Post Sep 22nd '14, 10:43

For whatever reason, I found myself reading up on the Marathon TvTropes page recently and subsequently went through the TC section of the page. Or more importantly, the statement that Pfh'Joueur has been lost.

This of course gave me a strong desire to actually play the game again. But after a couple of quick google searches on the mod and, well, with only a single search result in response leading me to the old homepage of the TC, I realized that, yes, perhaps it has actually been lost.

But wait, didn't I play this a couple of years ago...?

Now, I might be totally wrong and the page is heavily out of date, the files do exist somewhere, (like on the fileball archives) but in the event it is not...

Here, for those interested, have a fully working Aleph One (windows) version of Pfh'Joueur: On Mediafired.

Images, sounds, music, weapons and terminals seem all to work fine on both my 32bit Vista and my 64bit Win 8.
Edit (23.04.2019): Additionally, confirmed to work on 64bit Windows 10.

Some sound-effects sound a bit off/strange, but I cannot confirm if it is because of the port or if it was something the author never had a chance to fix.

The original Mac download is still available from both Fileball archive and the Marathon Archives.

Pfh'Joueur was too bizarre for me.
I have no idea what the significance of the ending was.

Heck, its more bizarre than Eternal.
Had some interesting ideas every now and then, but I remember it being a fever dream.

Ah I see. Oh well, nice to know it do exist somewhere.

Hm, though I may have been hasty in my conclusion about its functionality.

The teleporter at the end of the first level does not appear to work (The player is suppose to hit a switch, but nothing happens).

UPDATE 23.04.2019:
Five years later, I've finally doublechecked this and it seems to work. I don't recall what I did all those years ago, but I may very well have simply not read the instructions closely enough. The short of it: It should work.

Never finished it myself. But from what I do remember, it was fairly enjoyable.

Though, as one whom found Eternal pretty fun, the bizarre is what I might find so attractive about it.

Edit:
Its curious as I am certain it did work before, yet it doesn't now despite being the same files...

Edit 2019: It should work.
