I already have an account at DRDTeam. Apparently the file size limit is 75mb and the mod with music is 92mb, 17mb over the limit. I've uploaded the version of the mod with music to MediaFire instead.

Perhaps you should split it into two packs? The main wad, and then the music wad as an optional download. Kinda like the psx doom tc. Hell, using pk3s might be a good idea if you're going to reorganize everything.

Instead of splitting it into two PK3s, I could just use the music from the first Marathon instead of the custom Marathon music I'm using now. Marathon's music files are much smaller than the music files I'm using now, although of poorer quality. They do give a more nostalgic Marathon experience though.

That would be pretty cool! Do you think you could use the original midis instead of aleph one's soundfont rendered ones? The reason I ask is just for people who would rather use their own soundfont and save hardisk space using midis because they're smaller than the prerendered ones.

Alright, I've added a version of the mod that uses the original Marathon MIDI music files in addition to the two previous versions. Enjoy.

I know there hasn't been any update to this thread for quite a while but i only recently discovered this.

I like this idea but i would like to point out that the weapons are not very well alligned, check this out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LKmlEK6p ... re=related it is also a Marathon mod i began working on long ago and because of my perfectionism i spend a long time getting the weapon properly alligned to match the originals. I never made it as far as doing enemies 'cos my life was kinda hectic around that time.

I was actually planning on updating this eventually. My aim is to eventually have all the different classes of enemy types present in the mod, I just don't have the time to do that until the end of this semester.

About the single pistol alignment, unfortunately it cannot be centered because of how the dual pistol weapon is coded. The shotgun flip I could never seem to get quite right, so I just settled for what is in the mod currently.

I tried this out yesterday, and it's pretty cool, but I have some suggestions.

-Bobs do not always drop ammo like they are supposed to when killed.
-There's not enough ammo in the levels. The Marathon games teleported ammo into the levels.
- You should implement recharge stations. The current system makes taking damage extremely punishing. The armor potions are few and far between. All the armor potions give the same amount of armor as well.

Not exactly on topic, but what's the name of the level/wad in the first screenshot?

I may be wrong but some of the screenshots look like they're from Equinox.

Yeah, I just stumble across this mod. And I'm already to download (was even gonna get the MP3 one too) but DRD Team appears to be down.

But this looks really awesome though.

The first screenshot definitely isn't.
