Re: Apotheosis – Rebuild

This is all really cool, however, please don't forget to upgrade the decorative pin-up girl on the side of the UESC Gingerbread Man.
The original "girl riding an ESR Banshee" version was atrocious.

Re: Weland 1.4.4

Weland 1.4 doesn't appear to support plugins originally intended for Weland 1.2, is Weland 1.2 still available for download?

It would be useful if I had a separate Weland for plugin usage.

Re: Let's Make A TC

Mapping and Physics require very little in the way of tutorials, you can learn those just by playing with them. I'm going to throw the scenario Shadervoid under the bus as an example of how anyone can create a scenario very easily, however, most people want their scenario to have a plot presented wi...

I take it this is a piss-take of all those "I have a lot of ideas for a fan game but neither the expertise to do the heavy lifting nor discipline to work on it for long, so everyone else handle those for me" threads, here or elsewhere.

I could write you a story, I should clarify upfront that the story will be insanely bleak.
We're talking about all of humanity being enslaved for something you the player did, it will work with any set of levels.

Re: Does anyone else feel kinda bad for The Security Officer

The Marathon universe is entirely bleak, everything sucks.
The Security Guard should consider himself lucky to have a semi-noble important purpose to work on.

The Ultimate Marathon Scenario Creator

So if I were a rich fuck and I wanted to hire a programmer to combine:
AlephOne
Weland
Shape Fusion
PhysicsEditorOne
Terminal Editing
Visual Mode
Etc.

...into one easy to use Scenario Creation program what would I be asking for?

Re: Monsters can't be on platforms?

I've been trying to consistently replicate that glitch where any projectile monster shoots a stream of shots like a mini-gun when on a moving platform.
I got utterly annihilated while playing Marathon 1 years ago and I thought it was just a super secret attack built into the game.

Re: Can't run Portal of Sigma

If Sigma's maps are simple/linear enough for most players to figure 'em out on their own, you'd think the devs could've imparted a tiny bit more info on the setting... Also, think what you will of Rubicon, but at least the main characters had discernible personalities. All I can remember of Seth's ...

Re: Can't run Portal of Sigma

Some scenarios have deficiencies, Portal of Sigma's story is such a deficiency.
Its not as bad as Rubicon however but that may only because of Sigma's map design not requiring much instruction.

I stopped watching their Marathon 1 playthrough when Blackstar just outright refused to go through doors leaving Narcogen to go in alone, this after 20 minutes of discussion about whether or not they're ready for what is behind said door.

Re: "Unhandled Exception" error crashing Weland

I can attest to this bug and yeah its only occurred just recently, closing the dialogue box kills the program and destroys all work. Happens to me if I zoom in or out more than Weland wants.

I never use HD anything, with every HD release the game looks more and more like DOOM 2016's hidden classic Doom maps with the 2016 character models and weapons.
