Re: damn. This place is still alive

It's living, not dead
But it's not animated
It's on life support

O Bungie, please make that new Marathon game rumored in 2012 or whenever it was.

Marathon vs. Marathon (A1 interim)

I understand the diff between Marathon and M1A1, but what is Marathon A1 interim?

Re: M1 EMFH Shapes borked.

can anyone verify if this is indeed a problem? I tried it on a fresh OSX install. This is a problem still. If I load a multiplayer with the control + shift (command + option) level select with the default, included M1 Physics, it's fine. When I play actual multiplayer, it doesn't work. If it's the ...

Re: Can't click Play in Network Game

I remember I had a problem like this. Honestly, I have no idea how I solved it. Did you check if port forwarding and all your other networking stuff is correctly set up? (Or is this a LAN game?)

Re: Finally throwing out Halathon

Such progress. I love to see Aleph One can do all this. Looks just like Combat Evolved.
Also, I'd like to ask how you kept the dimensions of the map faithful to the original, if you did.

Just curious, as I downloaded M1A1SE once, but never played it.
What was special about them? What was improved?

^ Yeah, just wondering.

(What I meant: Freeverse graphics are included in Durandal, but not Infinity. Why?)

Re: Rambling about AI sentience and cyborg hardware

The shield part never made sense to me, given how when compared to other, explicitly shielded characters in game (such as the S'pht'Kr) the player bled when hit. Since the Security Officer clearly appeared to be wearing body armor, I figured the health bar in game was actually the player's health. ...

Re: Rambling about AI sentience and cyborg hardware

(More theories about the shield system. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who felt weird about it.) Two more theories about the shields to add to this list: 1. The shields only reduce impact and damage and doesn't completely block out damage, akin to shock absorbers. 2. The red "shield" is an auto-repa...

Does anyone know how to post a wide image like this so it's not arbitrarily cropped?
Uh, not at the moment, I can't remember. I think there was a scrollbar tag, but not sure.

Doomsday's awesome port, but I prefer zDoom or Zandronum for portable play and for many online games (AoW2 mod's crazy).

Re: An assertion failure

Ah ha. I found it. I did not connect a line to the sides of a polygon. Such a subtle error, always missing that.

Definitely not any zero-lengths or accidental 5D space; Sam redid the whole map for me just to see if the error would happen again.

Re: An assertion failure

There is in the original Marathon engine, but Aleph One removes this, as do the new tools such as Weland. It used to be that you could make up to 1024 polygons, but I've already exceeded that with no problems. Marathon Aeon actually uses thousands upon thousands of polygons, thus why it may bog dow...

Were there really only 271 games in April? Clearly nothing is popular.
