I?m having problems with the graphics in Aleph One that aren?t present in the original Marathon games, including: 1) When taking damage or picking up weapons, the screen does not flash a different color! Getting shot with bullets should make the screen flash red, picking up weapons should make it fl...

In case clarification is needed, the questions in my previous post were directed to anyone who would like to answer, not to a particular person. Thank you for continuing not to read or comprehend my posts. I do read your posts. You said the only things useful in the preferences file are texture sett...

I knew there was a reason I stopped trying to help people! Thanks for reminding me. I sincerely appreciate your help. As for "arming the general user with the knowledge the developers have" to change the in-game settings and maybe a few other things...I can add it to the FAQ. Sounds good to me! It ...

I realize it's currently en vogue to make devices and software that are far, far too complicated for most people to utilize in their entirety, but that doesn't mean it's the right thing to do. Are you telling me that being required to open up the preferences file with a text editor to look at numer...

What I meant is that the potentially useful options (not necessarily every single option) are what should be added to the in-game preferences. Iâ??m fine with the exclusion of things intended for debug, leftovers from previous builds, etc. But there are some options hidden in there that can be usefu...

Try opening up your preferences file with a text editor and set the line: mouse_acceleration="false". I think this definitely solved part of the problem. Thank you, Wâ??rkncacnter. Itâ??s very interesting that the preferences can be altered by opening them in a text editor. But at the same time it ...

Thanks for the tips, Treellama. Latency tolerance is the one thing I haven't experimented with so I was a little unsure about it. And thanks also for pointing out the wiki website. I'll see what I can do. And sorry Megabyte, but I have no idea. I've posted pretty much everything I know regarding thi...

Having watched certain players in action online in Aleph One / Marathon, Iâ??ve observed their ability to turn incredibly quickly and aim rapidly and accurately. This impresses and intrigues me because my mouse canâ??t do that! Iâ??ve tried adjusting the mouse sensitivity, but that doesnâ??t seem to...

First of all, thank you everyone for welcoming me. Now onto the blah. I had no idea my handle would spark any interest or controversy at all. So here is a more comprehensive post regarding my handle, Ares Ex Machina. When I was choosing a name, I did consider "Mars Ex Machina". After all, that would...

I've been a Marathon fan since the mid nineties (after Marathon 2 was released, but before Marathon Infinity). While the graphics aren't up to today's standards, these games still have the best multiplayer I've come across after all these years! The story also has incredible depth. For a long time, ...
