Money makes the world go round.

Hey maybe instead of getting him to release his program source code we can convince him to add that 3D texturing. [MGrin] I think more people would like it after that. I bet he could use the Marathon source code in helping him.

I've been using OBED for quite awhile now (I'm on windows :(), but i have a quick question...

How do I make a polygon (or room) so that a player cannot pass through it (like an invisible wall sort-thing)?

EDIT: I tried to edit the polygon's properties to "Impassable," but it doesn't seem to work. Any ideas?

I'm afraid that isn't possible, stung_man. In Pfhorte2 you would select the polygon's side you want to make impassable and select the checkbox solid.

If you have a semi modern computer ( like 1-2ghz ) then you could go ahead and emulate a mac with basilisk.
Check this link for an easy way to do this.

Btw, the impassable you selected in obed actually means that an item isn't able to spawn there.

There's probably a problem with your installation of Windows. Are you running XP?

the warning you described shows up when the cd-rom driver is missing in the drivers folder in system32 ( like in the path the warning message shows you ). You can get this file inside the basilisk directory in the folder 'cd-rom drivers' and havta put it in yourself.
This is only required to access the cd-rom drive from within the emulated mac environment. I'm also getting this warning message, but it doesnt prevent basilisk from starting. My guess is that the paths in the prefs are messed up beause you are using it in a different location than the guy who put it together.
Havta start the basiliskGUI and check what's up with the Rom image ( 'memory' tab ) and the HDD images ( 'disk' tab ).

Like I already wrote: you have to start the basiliskGUI ( GUI - Graphical User Interface ) and have to assign the rom path manually in the 'memory' tab as well as the path to the hard disk image 'MacHD.dsk' in the 'disk' tab. The reason behind this is that the author used this package in a different location from where you are using it. I can't spell it out for you any further

and you are still getting the "Cannot open ROM file" error? Can't quite imagine that. All i can say is that i even dled it myself and it works after having corrected the paths.
also seems that one has to change 'Screen type' in the 'screen' tab of the GUI from DirectX to Windows GDI in order to start the 3 Marathon in the emulated environment, otherwise the marathons complain that there is no monitor present that meets the minimum specifications.
Also keep in mind that Forge only runs in 256 color mode which also has to be set in the 'screen' tab of the GUI.

ppphhhhtt......when i did everything you just said, it had something new to say to me when i wanted to open marathon 2. it said



Invalid ROM size. Basilisk II requires a 512k or 1MB MacII ROM


Dammit i wish i had a mac

You wanted to open Marathon 2? That would mean that you already made it to the Mac OS 7.5.5 desktop. Are you saying that upon double clicking marathon 2 a windows alert windows showed up telling you that the ROM is of invalid size? That doesnt sounds very plausible.
The ROM is indeed a 1 Mbyte ROM and the GUI also verifies it upon selecting it. Can only tell you that it's possible to run this package.
If you want more advice then upload some screenshots of the GUI and the error message, plz.

Well, what did you expect to show up when starting a macintosh emulator if not the macintosh desktop? Perhaps the animation of a big boobed girl asking you whether you want to play marathon or start Forge? [MLaugh]

K i'll just suggest this....the Batillisk 2 included in that software package is not the most recent version. It does not include a Just In Time emulaton method.


Go here: http://www.gibix.net/dokuwiki/en:projects:basilisk2

Get the newest version, throw it in your existing package.

Downlad this http://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php
and put it in the Battilisk 2 folder if you havn't already.


Install the newest of this.
http://gladewin32.sourceforge.net/modules/...wcat.php?cid=12


Then click Batilisk II GUI, find the rom path under the rom and select it.

Since that 90 meg download came with a disk image, select that as a disk source.

Click start and see if it works.

Once you reach the desktop, Double click Hard Drive, and Look for the Marathon Folder.

Heres an image for yous.
(Ignore Sheepshaver, it is simply a PowerPC version of Batillisk II)
third picutre is A-10 Attack. OS is 8.6 which is why it looks different than 7.5.5
