Re: Beta bugs

Thank you, Zott, for all the explanation regarding the commits, and especially for the last tip on how to play the internet levels on solo (funny that requirement to take the oath of the vidmaster in the level selection screen :) ). Nevertheless, I would still like to know how to successfully gather...

Re: Beta bugs

Some people might think that I was joking when I questioned about the commits, but I was being truthful, I really don't know what are commits, english is not my language and that word was really unknown to me. But please do not deviate from the essential matter, which is my previous post!

Re: Beta bugs

Yesterday, I played multiplayer for the first time, I joined a M. Infinity network game, without ever have played that game, not even the solo levels. One of the players told that maybe 95% of the network games are of M. Infinity. So, I guess that the best chance for me to be able to see and play th...

Re: Beta bugs

I'm "jeremiahmorris" on SourceForge. You'll see a lot of commits under my name, mainly because Treellama gets his changes right the first time and I don't. I'm sorry, but my knowledge of english language has a few limitations. What are commits ? In the members page of the Aleph One project in Sourc...

Re: Beta bugs

In this page of the Marathon Spoiler Guide, you can read, regarding one of the secrets in level 25 'Try Again': In the one room with the bridge-like structure, if you go under the bridge, you'll open the radition doors on one side of the room to reveal a invincibility powerup. This can be very helpf...

Re: Beta bugs

@Hopper: I couldn't reproduce again the exact same occurrence I described earlier, but could verify that sometimes there is no need to go to the area below where there are all the shadowed S'pht standing over the jump pad in order to be transferred to the next level in the end, which means that not ...

Re: Beta bugs

There is some sort of bug in level Pfhoraphobia of Marathon which often makes that after killing the cyborg Pfhor and going to the End room (that with the window with the Marathon ship in sight), you are not teleported to the next level. After going a few times to the next level, now it seems that I...

Re: Wall climbing with grenades in Marathon, Aleph One 1.1b3

I recently got stuck in the deprivation chamber myself. I'm glad somebody else made a thread about it to confirm that it's not just me sucking at it (though I'm pretty sure I suck at it). Please verify my finding in your game. If you want to test it in the Deprivation Chamber (which is a good place...

Wall climbing with grenades in Marathon, Aleph One 1.1b3 v.

I started this discussion in another unrelated topic, starting in this post , but now I did a new surprising finding related to this issue and decided to start a new topic dedicated to this subject only.

wall climbing with grenades

I did a new surprising finding related to wall climbing with grenades! But I think it's probably better to share it by writing a new topic regarding this issue, so that it could more easily be found by anyone who searches this subject in the forums. I diverged too much already from the original subj...

Re: The Rose: mystery around Bobs and the "impossible" missi

Did I do something wrong? I don't think so? It plays back for me. Make sure GJ.scen is in your Marathon folder. You don't have to choose it in Environment preferences, the engine should find it automatically. You mean GJ Map.scen , not GJ.scen , right? Yes, it is in my Marathon folder, along with M...

First, I select your map GJ Map.scen in ENVIRONMENT SETTINGS, then in main menu, I click REPLAY SAVED FILM, and select your file GJ.filA , which I had previously transferred to the folder My Documents\AlephOne\Recordings. I get this error: «WARNING Aleph One was un...

Re: The Rose: mystery around Bobs and the "impossible" missi

The napalm canisters are probably just out of reach of the player. You can only reach so far. As I recall, Destiny is correct. You can't collect them due to their position, not because of any ammo limits. I didn't know of that particular secret before M1A1, so I don't know if this phenomenon is con...

Re: The Rose: mystery around Bobs and the "impossible" missi

I've climbed walls forward with grenades with the latest beta, although not that one. Others have, though. Something is wrong with your setup if you are propelled backwards. Either something is wrong with your setup, or you're just doing something weird in your grenade climbing attempts. I have no ...

Soon after my last post, I did a new search in Youtube and found 2 videos which show how to do the wall climbing with grenades. I put those videos in a Youtube playlist called 'Marathon 1: wall climbing with grenades', showing only the relevant parts. In the first video , it is possible to see exact...

Re: The Rose: mystery around Bobs and the "impossible" missi

So, you're using Aleph One 1.1b1. But Marathon-20130813-Win.zip is the Aleph One 1.1b3, right? Anyway, the first grenade propels me upward and forward as it should be, the following grenades are those which sometimes propel me backwards. But the second grenade has usually a small propelling effect, ...

ok, if the single-wielding fist is a feature of the original Marathon, that's fine with me, it doesn't bug me. What does bug me right now is my inability of doing the wall climbing with grenades! :angry: Now I know why this page in the Marathon Spoiler Guide fails to mention the presence of the narr...

Re: The Rose: mystery around Bobs and the "impossible" missi

Well, I didn't have that knowledge that you have about which colour of the Bobs corresponds to each post. Where did you get access to that information? My theory was just an hypothesis, in fact, the true might be just the opposite: because the red Bobs are not marked in the map unlike any other Bobs...

Re: The Rose: mystery around Bobs and the "impossible" missi

Thank you! That hopefully answers to the main question of my topic! What archive should I pick from the list: Marathon-20130813-Win.zip, Marathon-20130813-Exe-Win.zip, or rather AlephOne-20130813-Win.zip? To do my current installation, I had simply extracted the folder Marathon (A1) from the archive...

Hey, Marathon fans!

There was no need of previously installing the Aleph One application....
