Ok. so just to confirm I have given up on this Marathon map.
I'm releasing two maps here that you can do multiplayer on, one with the classic marathon tag set, one with standard tag set.
I gave up because Gmax is horrible and after spending two full days of pouring over every error and solving them.
I finally got it into the game, then found out it was too big.
I then resized it (that's all I did I swear) and lo and behold, more errors.
Therefore the maps are slightly too large, not bad, just that the terminal in the wall for example is at head height for the master chief.
Its also worth pointing out that while the chief can fall from space and survive, flip a tank and do all sorts of crazy things, he cannot climb stairs higher than his ankle. go figure.
There was also an issue where for some strange reason Gmax always aligned the textures to my view point not the faces sides.
Not sure why that was but as a result some of the textures look a bit wonkey.
If you want to continue this project, I will happily give you all my tags, Gmax file and textures. just PM me and then wait for me to upload it to you.

I'll submit what Ive done to CE3, but you can also find the maps linked below off my google drive.





Have fun.

BTW, I accidentally put both maps inside the classic zip. so might as well just download the second.

Are you using the Bluestreak 102 exporter from 10 years ago? That's known to cause random non-errors on perfect BSPs

Yes, I can use 3dsmax but I find Gmax easier to use as I'm more familiar with it. Also, blue streak don't work on gmax, I use chimp. As for pictures, just download it and look at it. its not big. But yeah, I have other more important things to do ATM so if someone wants to continue this, I'll send the files, but I've had enough.

ok. I'll give that a shot then, though I don't intend to do anymore work on this project even if it does work. (other than assembling a new map at that point that is)

Ok, turns out I had been last editing a version I had in my downloads without realizing it rather than the one in the scenes folder which, while not too far behind still has a lot of the errors I spend so long editing. I regularly clear my downloads folder so its gone now, I took one look at the previous version and was just like. Um, no thanks. so yeah, I mean, I can always give someone else a copy if they want to work on this but I'm done here.

Pics, as you can see, the textures are somewhat off and its a bit too big. That's Gmax's fault.


sorry about the links, the hosting site wont let me have the inline image tags.
