Speed Runs

Over at the Speed Demos Archive I was surprised not to see any Marathon postings. For those of you who may not be familiar with that website it hosts videos of games being played quickly to say the least. Cheating is not allowed but exploiting game glitches is a common play mechanic to beat games ri...

Are you developing Marathon - Pfhortissimo?

I imagine he got his moves from watching A Charlie Brown Christmas.

I found out I need to use Command + Option to level.

Using Basilisk with a Windows keyboard I discovered that the Command key is mapped to the Windows key and Option to Alt.

Does the original Marathon 1 game have a level select like it's successors? I've tried a variety of keyboard combinations, but I also have a feeling my using an emulator may be preventing the Apple Command key to register.

Nice. Your casings gave me a good laugh. Makes me think I'm in a slow motion John Woo movie scene. I'm still scratching my head as to why the MML document describes the velocities in the way they do. Good to know about that 1000 issue. Maybe that's why my media fader wasn't doing anything.

I've been toying with MML and I noticed the ability to alter the shell casing velocity and more. After tinkering with that specifically I never encountered a difference. Here is a snippet that should cause the centered pistol shell casing to fly slowly. But in game it sticks to it's usual routine. <...

I was confusing Atque for Aorta. Atque wasn't on my radar and now that I'm aware of it I will sure make good use of it. How does one edit the CLUT files? I only have GIMP for my pc.

Am I correct in thinking Atque is for creating glow masks? I already plan to use MML heavily to load external PNG for the majority of my graphic modifications. I like that MML can even be told to distinguish between the possible color tables. It looks like the Image file only works in PICT images an...

I just signed up for the free Dropbox account. Wow! 2gb storage will sure come in handy. I'll grab a Flickr account, too, so that I can share preliminary screen captures. By the way, does anyone know of an image editor / paint program for OS 7.5 that I can download legitimately to help stream line m...

Greetings from a newcomer here. After some time of randomly reading what was new with the Marathon world I decided to join in. After years of being without an Apple computer I recently acquired an oldie capable of only running classic mode. I've got some useful experience in the past of getting Basi...
