Mara OS

About MaraOS. MaraOS, formerly called Marathon Runner, is an application that makes it easier to manage all the different Marathon accessory files (modules) you might have accumulated. The usual way to do this involves a lot of copying, moving, renaming, and forgetting. I wrote MaraOS to make this process somewhat simpler- it moves files to their proper place and renames them, freeing you to organize and name modules as you see fit. By keeping track of names and locations for you, MaraOS allows you to get on with the killing with the minimum of fuss. It does this by searching for modules w...

Forge/Anvil Patchers v1.0.2

This is Bungies update to their great editors, Forge and Anvil. The Anvil updater adds a import and export feature that is great. If you are using Anvil to add palettes or the like-I strongly suggest you use this version. For sounds, use the 1.0.3 version.


Converts Macintosh M2 maps into Windows 95 M2 maps. Runs on a mac only.

M2 Wall Textures

PICT files (and Photoshop color tables) for each of the four texturesets in M2. These can be imported easily into an Infinity shapes file (using Anvil), facilitating the use of Forge for building M2 maps.

Physics Converter 1.0

A small drag-n-drop program that provides a simple way to convert between M2 and Infinity physics models.

Marathon Cheater 5.0.2

Allows you to modify saved games to give yourself obscene amounts of health, ammo, oxygen... and it works on everything from Marathon 1 (all versions) through the M2 preview, the M2 demo, the M2 full release, the Infinity Demo, and the full version of Infinity.

Infinity MaraMacros v1.1

Similar to the M2 version, these are MacsBug macros for cheating in Infinity. Install them (instructions included), and you'll be able to boost shields, weapons/ammo, oxygen... you name it, all without modifying your Marathon app or needing a saved game. Update fixes a small bug that makes it impossible to change the info on the assault rifle.

Devlin Teaser Mov

This oldversion quicktime movie was made and sent abroad to many newsgroups as a "teaser" of the upcomming large conversion project.

All MIDI 1.1.2

A small app for converting MIDI files into QuickTime movies.

The Infinity Game Wimp v1.4

Is a lot like the Marathon Cheater, but with a few differences. It's a bit more flexible (with more info) on stuff like Oxygen, Invincibility, etc (it'll give you approximate durations). It will add fist power-ups. (I don't know what this means... I didn't see any effects when I tried it). It will play your Marathon Music while it's working. (This can be cancelled.) It only works on the Infinity demo, M2 and the M2 Preview and Demo. $5 shareware. Update adds a very cool Full Map feature, and a bunch of 68K-only enhancements (save anywhere, start with extra health/oxygen, etc.)

"Lights, Floors, and Ceilings"

Have you ever made a simple marathon map, with limited lighting types ,because you never figured out how to make those smooth fluctuating lights? Or maybe you know, technically, how to do it, but never got around to it, because of the tedium of creating all those lighting types. Well, wait no more-download this package. It contains 4 one-poly maps (yes, you'll have to add your own polys to make them functional), containing smooth gradations of lights using various steps. Also contains easy lookup tables for creating staircases.

SyncFilm v1.0

This drag-n-drop film fixer will synch a film with the map it was made from. Good for those times when the proper map is present, but Marathon refuses to recognize it...

Marathon Film Installer 1.0a5

Will allow you to replace the films built in to Marathon 1 or 2 (the ones that show if you leave the main screen up too long) with your own. Update adds compatibility with Infinity.

M2 Crosshairs

A small program that runs concurrently with Marathon. Adds a small crosshair in the center of the screen. Not a patch to Marathon, so but a separate entity... so getting rid of it is easy. Only tested with M2, but probably works with M1 and Infinity as well. PowerMac only-will crash your 68K machine.

Phforte 2.0a14

Bunch of tweaks, bug fixes, new features. Check out the latest changes. Guides and other helpful documents can be found in the "Instructions / Guides" section.

Super Mara Macros

Designed to be used in conjunction with the Maramacros above, these add tweaks like hundreds of spanker shots per clip, or grenades, or whatever... 13x shields... extravision, infravision, invisibility... you name it. Works best with v6.5.3 of MacsBug.

New Pfhorte2 Menus

Changes the names of Monsters, Objects, Texturesets, etc. to more descriptive choices.

MapInfo 1.3.1

This is a really cool little tool of use to both mapmakers and players. Now works with both M1 and M2. Drop a map on it, and it'll create a text file containing lots of information about the map. Object info, lighting types, textureset, number of polys, number of platforms, number of points, total volume, and on and on... Use it for error checking (your map is crashing and you don't know why? Make sure the landscape texture you used is the one defined for the map. Want to make sure you haven't passed the 64 platform limit in your map? Save yourself lots of tedious counting with this. yadda...

Pfhred 1.3.1

A shape editor that lets you scale and rotate character shapes. Lots of fixed bugs-this is a great choice to use with the Marathon 2 Wall Extractor... Here's the readme.

Marathon 2 Wall Extractor

Well, you might have to wait until Infinity comes out for an in situ editor, or one that can handle sprites, but this nifty little tool should help immensely in the meantime. It allows you to extract wall textures from M2 Shapes files, and save them in M1 format. You can then edit them with any of the Marathon 1 Shapes editors, and then reinsert them. I only did preliminary testing, and there are quite a few restrictions (read the docs), but it seems to do exactly what it say it'll do. Texture editors, go at it!
