In Response To: Re: Marathon 2 Preview - Part III (Bob-B-Q)

: Now I see it. Doesn't appear to happen in the Preview.

Aye. Or the Demo. Greg must have added them in for fun at the end. Chances are you would never know they were there without a map editor. Getting up there is also challenging. Typical Greg. ;-)

: I played through the level again. The second messages don't display when the
: mission is half complete, either. Maybe I should try that modified
: Preview...

I doubt that would make a difference since you should get it to work with the original version. I wonder if it has anything to do with running it under emulation?

: Would there be any interest in doing runthroughs of the Marathon v0.0 demo or
: the Marathon alphas from the Trilogy collection? They're better known than
: the Preview, but there are probably a lot of people who can't run them.

Raul Bonilla et al. did a walkthrough of the Marathon Beta SF Jan'94. See the Grendel section. You might be able to get further than they did before crashing.

I covered some of the main differences in the demo v0.0 on the Story Page. See the Marathon Demo v0.0 section. You could always add to this. Still stuff not covered.

Cheers
Hamish
