Pathways into Darkness clone
Posted By: lazDate: 2/15/15 2:45 p.m.

Hi everyone,
I've been working on a Pathways into Darkness clone for Windows over the past several years. The project has reached the point where I feel comfortable demonstrating it to the public.

The Pathways into Darkness engine has been entirely re-implemented from scratch using information gathered by the Pathways community. The engine has support for the Pathways 2.0 game, A1 demo, V2 demo, and as a test of flexibility I am attempting to port Marathon Zero to my engine!
While code is completely new, the content used to run the game is ripped from the original. I have attempted to contact Bungie in the past regarding this grey area (Pathways has never been officially called abandonware) but I never received a response.

My goal is to release a mod tool to allow player to create at the very least custom maps, but ideally also custom sounds and textures.

Thanks to the efforts of this community I have had access to enough information to make this clone. I'd like to personally thank the following people for their in-depth analysis of the original game:
Alain Roy, Alexander Strange, Ben Semmler, Hamish Sinclair, Hopper, Mark Levin, Loren Petrich, and Ron Hunsinger.
This project wouldn't have gotten this far without their dedication to uncovering the secrets of Pathways into Darkness!
