Re: Linux install help

Can you confirm if any additional packages ask to be installed after running the following command:

$ sudo apt install '^libsdl2-*'

Re: Damage Inc. & Prime Target Reversing

The stars recently aligned when a tool called Ghidra was released, which features a decompiler that also targets PowerPC. I've loaded the Mac binary of Damage Inc, which includes debug information, into it and the output looks very clean and doesn't suffer from any of the issues that plagued my ear...

Re: VAST - A Marathon-inspired FPS

Before the macOS soft-launch in early March, I tested it on the oldest MacBook I have, a MacBook Air from 2009 and it runs, but barely. Apple doesn't have any way for us to set a minimum requirement; instead they test it themselves and the App Store says whether it will work on your machine you hav...

Collecting my very few intial thoughts here in regards. I may cross-post on your message boards as well so it's "on the record" so to speak.

Re: Putting the Marathon Vidmaster's Challenge films on YouT

So... more stupid emulator questions. I've gotten SheepShaver to boot. It runs Marathon, and it even looks like it's supposed to. But it doesn't play sound. It's complaining that I've given Marathon too much memory, even when I reduce the memory size. What gives? It also freezes after about a minut...

Re: Chocothon (a Chocolate Doom-like source port)

Like the rest of the developers, I agreed to work on Aleph One because I believe the community is too small to support multiple source ports. I encourage you instead to contribute to the issues that you mention: bug fixes and tests for Aleph One, and reports / fixes of Marathon behaviors Aleph One ...

Re: Mirata - A WIP launcher for AlephOne & etc

FWIW, since Marathon started out life as a Mac game, the drag-and-drop approach will probably be more popular among its user base than it would among gamers more generally. But apart from that, I have little helpful to add; I haven't played around with Linux distros and compilers enough to have any...

Re: Mirata - A WIP launcher for AlephOne & etc

So thinking thing over some more, I think atm I should at least focus on getting the package stuff worked out first, since that would be the most important thing to deal with. I can luckily use the libcurl API for that. The installation and launching stuff I can push off to the side until the packag...

Re: Mirata - A WIP launcher for AlephOne & etc

I don't think combining easy install and developmental versions of Aleph One makes sense. I'd really rather that not be a thing. I might have worded that a bit odd. I would say to consider it like snapshots like in Minecraft. The ones that compile correctly for snap imaging are available for you to...

I'm also trying to view how to tackle this from the perspective of new linux users.

Re: Possibility of a Marathon Speedrun

A kindergarten speedrun sounds far less entertaining than a TC speedrun. Kindergarten runs are more on the technical end in terms of what you do during the run. TC is, for the most part more combat intensive. I generally prefer Kindergarten because I like the SickStrats™, though I do occasionally d...

This question is not exactly for just Aleph One, since it can happen on the original Win and Mac executables. So I and a few others have noticed that you can actually go out of bounds in the engine. There is this clip from a stream I did last night that shows OOB in progress . From what I can gather...
