|Marathon 2 and Infinity with AlephOne|

Seeing as nobody had done it and I was having a bit of a withdrawl from not having a good game of Marathon 2 or Marathon Infinity in the last four years, I decided to remidie the problem.
I played and completed the Marathon (1) port (AlephOne)... It was dull, no real change as I found the original to be a tedious menace, rather than an enjoying thrill!!!
What I truely missed was the fun of the Bobs chanting "Get Hime He's A Traitor" or "Hey, He's Shooting at US!!" before dodging several bullets...
So I decided to see If I could get Marathon 2 or Marathon Infinity working with the AlephOne engine.
Well, it is easier than some may think...
I found that I could get immediate result by copying the original files from Marathon 2 and Marathon Infinity, this worked as planned and I was able to play the scenarios from those two games,
-You must remove the "Tracks" and "Scripts" folders also.
HOWEVER, the music files did not work?!
for any questioning this, the new music files are not the same format as the old ones, in fact they are just simple AIFF (WAV for Windows) files! ...and as I found could be played with Quicktime...
SO, playing with my tried and trusted resource editor "ResEdit" - I decided to fix this.
-The process is very simple, what one must do is change the 'file type' of the old music file to "AIFF" and the 'owner' to "TVOD" - this will enable AlephOne to recognize the file as being an "AlephOne Music File".
1. Remove the following files from the AlephOne folder.
So, Happy Happy, Carnage, Carnage
