He there fellow Marathon addicts,

I'm a 36 year old theatre technician from the Netherlands.
How cool is this, I bought my first copy of Marathon (inf) in 1996. Cool to see there's still a large community.

I havent played Marathon, or other games, for about 15 years so i'm pretty new to this.

I always played with the idea to make a scenario from scratch with a friend of mine, but we never got to it.
Now that i'm a little bit older, this might be the time. So my question is, are there osx ports of Forge and Anvil, or should I dust of ye old blueberry iMac?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, bear with me, I just installed Aleph one this morning ;)

I'd really like to create some stuff.


Cheers!

Ya might want to dust off the old blueberry iMac. :3
It's been said billions of times, with rage, here, that there's no OSX port for Forge and Anvil. There are some threads on alternatives, however.

Be grateful that I got to you first, though. These people might get angry with you, since all ya really need to do is look around the pfhorum for your answer. (The first place you should've checked is the Mapping section of the pfhorums. Would've saved you a lecture.)

EDIT: FAQ is here, if you want to take a look. viewtopic.php?t=720 May be helpful.

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=624 Netmap rules

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=35423 John Romero's rules for mapmaking. (Yes, the John Romero involved in DooM. The rules can also be handy for making Marathon maps.)

Ignore anyone posting links to 7 year old threads.

Edit maps with Weland: http://sourceforge.net/projects/weland
Texture them with Visual Mode.lua: http://simplici7y.com/items/visual-mode-lua
Create merged maps and images files using Atque: http://sourceforge.net/projects/igniferroque/
Edit shapes/sounds/physics with ShapeFusion: http://shapefusion.sourceforge.net/

They all work with OS X, Windows, and Linux. No need to haul out the iMac unless for nostalgia purposes.
