Hiya folks,

Long time Marathon enjoy-er and still so. Though that is Aleph One on the Windows XP desktop to the right of the souped up Power Mac 9600 (8600 Kansas board, 500 Mhz G3 - real souped up).

I even have the Bungie Action Pack for the Mac CD with the box and cloth bag it came in someplace, to play on a Performa 575 (still have that).

I'd been reading your phorum phor, um, sum thyme now.

Finally, joining to locate or somehow figure out how to get "The Classified 19" available for download for Windows / OS X users.

Well, for another phorum on The Phorums and another topic. However, I do have the ability to convert Mac files to .bin, then add the Windows file format suffix, and upload, slowly,for use with Aleph One. I'm back on dial-up since I have to move and don't want to deal with broadband contracts.

Also, if you have any questions about your rear wheel drive Volvo (240,700,900,100 series, and so forth), let me know, I used to turn wrenches. Yet am a technical writer/BA by trade.

Thank you. Happy Holidayze!

Hello there, aspiring map maker and total newbie (freely admitted) here! Looking for some help with Pfhorge for OS X, as the help files are totally useless and vague, hoping to be pointed in the direction of a few decent tutorials :D

hehe opps didnt introduce myself first oh well istill made a first post but why not introduce myself? im a 18 year strange Kitsune who atm is trying to port Aleph one to the xbox.. and not doing so well lol i became a Fan of marathon when i was about 12? 13 maybe and found aleph one for the first time ^_^ and just loved it from the moment i started

Worthless comment it is.

Except... I might as well as my question here.

It's like this: I enjoyed Marathon a lot back in the days when I had a 68k Mac. Now we're all over 3GHz and 64 bit Intel and generally super-duper, I found out about Aleph One and I thought I might enjoy playing Marathon again, just with full quality graphics :-)

The problem is that the available Aleph One version of Marathon 1 (at least) is set to a much harder difficulty than that which I enjoy playing at. Perhaps it's because I'm an ancient relic (in my 40s but I've still got all my hair), but I don't seem able to complete any levels without the use of the spoiler guide, and that rather takes the fun out of things.

So my question is: is there a way - somehow - to get an Aleph One version of Marathon operating at the old "normal" difficulty level?

This is I suspect not the best place to ask, but since I've got to make a post anyway...

Thanks for any thoughts

When you open up the game, click "Preferences" then "Player". The difficulty setting is right there. You can set it all the way down to Kindergarten if you need to.

You're right - thank you.

I have no idea why I was unable to see this until prompted to look closely. I expect it was because of the very different appearance.

Hello all! Thought I'd drop in and activate my profile, like everybody else. ;)

I'm hoping one of you will help me out. I'm having trouble using Aleph One with openGL, so I'm confined to *shudder* software rendering. Not that it's that bad. I remember how sharp the graphics looked with the TTEP after using BasiliskII -- but that was on Windows. I should probably post this in a more relevant forum, though.

Having trouble with the system? Let me know.

Great. I hope it works.

Well... It's been quite some time sense my last visit to these dark and... occasionally haunted corridors. Just popping back after killing some more mallards in Rubicon, and I'm itching to gripe over the sever lack of ammunition.

Maybe even unload a few rounds into you all online, if you be willing. [MGrin]
