Re: Hi - love to see that a community still exists for Marat

Aw man, you were the one who discovered the "Marathon Zero" beta? That's pretty cool! :D

I'm glad that there still exists a community for Marathon after all these years, too (and that I'm not the sole person doing fanart/fic).

I mean, the Switch is a Nintendo console. I honestly doubt it'll fall by the wayside that quickly.

Re: Inm. Pfhor Sprites

Cool! [MSmile] ...would you be interested in a map I use to check my Shapes file modification? Is basically a single room with the monsters and scenery items I'd had the idea of modifying, but I can make a version with everything. Thanks! ^^ And that map might be more (immediately) useful for Aaron...

Re: Inm. Pfhor Sprites

So, between working on personal projects, some commissions, and general slowness, progress on these has been gradual, but I wanted to stick this preview here:

Re: Let's Make A TC

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.

Re: whither Traxus? and other changes

wrt: Traxus, it's currently down, and I don't think sign-ups were ever made available without having to PM someone first. There is/was another wiki (Marathon Beyond?) that mirrored some of its content, but I can't find it. Fanscape: Well, there's a new build of A1 (no bridges or proper sniper rifles...

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

I do! (Though I also think that his relationship with Durandal is a lot better than most people assume it is, alleviating the "life sucks" a bit)

Re: Marathon Chronicles

Regarding level design, I’d say just start with the Forge tutorial videos on YouTube . Once you’ve watched that, a lot of the process of actually building a level is fairly self-explanatory, and it hasn’t really changed that much since then, apart from the need to switch back and forth between the ...

Really sorry to hear what happened to you emotionally, man; I hope you're able to recover soon. wrt: EVIL, if there's no logical way to work any elements from it into Chronicles, then I would vote in favour of removing the EVIL-derived stuff.

Re: Marathon Infinity - Sysnopses of Timelines

Looks pretty good/straightforward to me!

Guess my main comment would be that I don't think it's 100% clear how/under what circumstances Durandal grabbed the SO; demo versions explicitly say that he teleported them directly into a stasis chamber, but the final doesn't mention this.

Seconding the scenario-list suggestion; I'd also hope that if anyone can get Traxus back up, all of its stubs for unfinished scenarios could be consolidated into a single page listing each one with a short description. Maybe download links where applicable (example of not applicable: Jade Incursion,...

Re: PSA: Marathon: Durandal XBLA is now playable on Xbox One

Heard about this not too long ago; don't have an XBONE yet, but I do at least remember M2 XBLA as being the first version of any of the games I saw in action.

(Who knows; maybe if this does well enough, they'll consider XBLA-izing M1 and Infinity?)

Didn't take nearly as long as the Fighters, which I'm proud of. I'll probably take a bit of a break between these and the Hunters 'n Enforcers.
