Chisel: Wot dat tag do den? 1.2.1

An update to an amazingly useful Chisel plugin. This allows you to see what tags are activated by which switches or chips, and what the resultant action is. 1.1 fixes the effect to work on merged maps as well as unmerged. 1.1.1 allows the overwriting of an exising Tag report. (If you've updated the tags, you certainly don't need the old report, do you?) Use this when new people join projects (to see what's already been done), use this when coming back to old maps you don't have notes for (you do keep notes, don't you?), use this as a last resort when playing scenarios that you can't find ...

Chisel: Texture Munger v1.0.2

This is one of the slicker chisel plugins out there... but it's pretty hard to get your mind around it. It lets you use two texture sets on a single level (by mapping the textures to their appropriate origins), or it lets you convert a level from one texture set to another painlessly. (Okay, nearly painlessly.) It's astounding. And it works. Play with it.

Marathon Map Viewer v1.4.1

This is one of the coolest tools to come along in a long time. It does just what the name would suggest... it allows you to view maps. It works a lot like Forge's visual mode... except it has a few extra features. Up and down motion is supported (shades of Pfhorte's viewer), and maps can be viewed fully-textured down to wireframe, with almost anything in between. It requires OpenGL, a 3D-rendering interface which is becoming quite common. OpenGL on a 3dfx card requires full-screen mode, which the Viewer doesn't support, but if you have an ATI Rage Pro or Rage 128 (or, according to Apple, ...

Chisel: PLATformer v1.0

PLATformer is a Chisel plugin that lets you perform some previously impossible feats with platforms. Demo maps are included. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Marathon Sound Editor v1.0b6

This program will allow you to fully customize your M2/M00 sound files. Check out its web page! b5 Update allows in-place editing-you can overwrite the existing file, if you want. (Thanks, Charles!) b6 update reactivates the code to verify class IDs.

Two Shapes Utilities v1.0.1

Two programs: 12oo Shapes Mover, which moves shapes chunks from M1 shapes files to M2/inf shapes files... and 1-10 Twiddler, which can help with the 1-animated/1-non-animated switching problem. (If you don't know what that is, you probably don't need this.) Very useful tools for scenario builders! v1.0.1 fixes a small bug that kept the Twiddler from recognizing M2 files.

Chisel Collection v3.0

Contains all current (as of 6 Dec 99) Chisel plugins not available individually on this site. This includes Cinemascope 1.0, Geometry Effects, Media Munger 1.0, Texture Munger 1.0, and Write Rotator 1.0a2.

Chisel: Annotator v1.0

Annotator is a Chisel plugin that allows you much greater leeway with where annotations show up. You can make them appear in unexplored areas, you can make them appear only after certain areas are explored... and to a limited degree, you can play with font color and size. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Chisel: Better Move v2.2

Better Move is a core Chisel plugin that allows you to actually move the entire map on the Forge grid. This is really useful when you run out of room on one side... Version 2.2 actually works on maps with annotations, unlike previous versions. It also adds several cool features, like the ability to move platforms, and the ability to run it more than once on a single map. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package, and is part of the standard Chisel 2.1.6 package if you downloaded after December 6, 1999.

Chisel: Merge v1.1

Merge is a Chisel plugin that lets you combine two marathon maps. This means you can actually work on complicated but repeated sections separately, and merge them in where you need them. (Good uses are airlocks, signature term areas, and anything else you can come up with.) This version fixes several bugs, and should now be quite useable. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Chisel: Monster Converter v1.0

Monster Converter is a Chisel plugin that lets you avoid an unpleasant quirk in Forge. When M1 maps are converted to M2 or Infinity maps, Forge ignores the fact that the monster order changed... so you have to go through your maps and click every single one to convert it. (Or you have to nuke the map.) Monster Converter fixes this. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Chisel: Polygon Converter v1.0

Polygon Converter is a Chisel plugin that allows much more logical remapping of M1 to M2 or Infinity polygon types. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Chisel: Poseidon v1.1

Poseidon is a Chisel plugin that lets you flip a marathon map (M2 or Infinity) around the X, Y, or Z axes. Pretty slick, actually. Version 1.1 fixes a number of small bugs. This plugin is also available as part of the Chisel 2.1.6-enhanced package.

Custom Set Remover

The Custom Set Remover does one thing. (It removes custom sets. Duh.) Several collections (landscapes and weapons) have normal sets, and custom sets. (These generally allow for more color flexibility.) If you don't need them, or don't want to update two sets (and aren't planning to add your own custom sets), you can use this simple drag-n-drop tool to remove them from your shapes file.

M2/M00 Clut Modifier v1.2.2

The M2/M00 Clut Modifier will allow you to extract the palettes from any M2 or M00 Shapes file, and to reinstall them back (after you have modified them). I did this because someone told me that Anvil didn't allow full customization of the palettes. This program has not been fully tested - use at your own risks. New in this version: Corrected a nasty bug that caused an extra color to appear at the end of every clut when editing them in ResEdit. This extra color could sometimes hose a Shapes file when dealing with large cluts. 1.2.2 adds the possibiltiy of not shortening cluts when installi...

DropTerm v1.1

A simple little app to extract TERM resources from M1 maps, and reinstall them once you've edited them. Not totally idiot-proof, so be careful... but it fills a niche that's empty.

Chisel: Stretch v3.0

Stretch is a cool Chisel plugin that allows you to stretch or mirror textures on walls. 3.0 is a pretty major upgrade that allows alterations of lines (on the automap), so that platforms can be hidden, and various other visual tricks can be performed. Well worth the download if you're building cool maps...

Durandal Terminal Browser 1.4.3

A small app that allows you to browse all the terminals of Marathon 2 and Infinity-text, pictures, everything. Find the terms you missed the first time through. Read the messages you would have seen if you had gone back later... see Bungie's secret M2 term without swimming in lava. Latest update adds support for tag sections.

Hex 1.0.4

While Forge has a great visual mode, (one of it's strongest attributes) it still lacks a lot for creating and editing terminals. This version works with Infinity and fixes a few bugs with the earlier version... This update includes a requested manual. It also allows you to veiw picts from within Hex!! Latest update adds support for the recently discovered tag activation option in terms.

Marathon Map Splitter 1.0.7

Bo says it better than I would... from the readme: "Marathon Map Splitter takes a merged Marathon scenario file as produced by Forge and splits it into individual map, physics, and terminal text files for each level. It also extracts any resources into a "Terminal Picts" file. It is the exact opposite of the "Merge Levels" command in Forge. This lets you do things like peeking at other people's physics models (ever wondered how to make a potatoanus?), fixing the bugs in Blood Tides of Lh'owon, and converting old Pfhorte-generated scenarios." Another must-have for scenario builders! 1.0.1 ...
