The Marathon Markup Language (MML), a subset of the Extensible Markup Language (XML): This was created for the purpose of configuring the Marathon engine in a non-hardcoded way. MML scripts are stored in the "Scripts" subdirectory of the local data directory, and the "MML" subdirectory of the global data directories and accessed in alphabetical order (scripts in the local directory are read after the global ones so they can override their settings).

For more on XML, check out these links:

One feature that I've attempted to maintain is that any set of values can always be overrode by another. For example, if you set some color to be red in one file, and that color to be green in a file processed after it, that color will be green.

Many of the element attributes here are some sort of index value, and they are all counted from 0 unless specified otherwise; for example, collections are numbered from 0 to 31.

Here is the format:

Marathon Root Element: <marathon>

This is the root element, the one that contains all the others. Other Marathon-related root elements may be defined in the future, however, such as root elements for stuff that is intended for individual map levels. These may have a format like <maralevel index="value">.

This element has no attributes and contains these child elements:

String-Set Element: <stringset>

This element is an imitation of MacOS 'STR#' resources. It has an attribute of "index", which has a numerical value corresponding to the original resource ID:

This element contains child elements with form <string>, which have an attribute of "index", and contents of whatever the string is supposed to be. The index is zero-based, unlike the original STR# resources, whose indices are one-based. For example, the filenames are specified in this fashion:
<!-- STR# Resource: "Filenames" -->
<stringset index="129">
<string index="0">Shapes</string>
<string index="1">Shapes.16</string>

Motion-Sensor Element: <motion_sensor>

This kind of element is for assigning motion-sensor features; the assignment is done by doing <assign>, which has attributes "monster" (which one of these in the list) and "type", which is
  1. Self, Friendly Player, and Bob
  2. Alien
  3. Hostile Player

One can disable it by specifying that the top-level element <interface> has attribute "motion_sensor" with value "false".

Overhead-Map Element: <overhead_map>

This kind of element is for setting up overhead-map features. It can have an attribute of "mode", which has possible values:
  1. Normal: automapping is cumulative (the default)
  2. Currently visible only
  3. All

It can also have the attribute "title_offset", whose value is how many pixels downward to offset the title text.

One can assign various types to monsters; they can either never show up, or else show up as a Bob or as an alien. This must be done separately for living and dead monsters, because the engine "forgets" what monster type a dead monster is.

Thus, one assigns live monsters with <assign_live> and dead ones with <assign_dead>. Which live monster to assign one specifies with an attribute "monster", which takes a monster type, while which dead monster to assign one specified with an attribute of "coll", which takes a collection ID. Both elements assign to a type of display, specified with attribute "type"; the possible types are:

  1. won't ever show up
  2. Bob (shown by default)
  3. Alien (not shown by default)

One can display additional stuff by specifying an appropriate element; this elements have an attribute of "on", which is a boolean value.

  1. Aliens (red)
  2. Friends and Items (green)
  3. Walls and Scenery, also the S'pht (blue)
  4. Player Stuff and Explosion Effects (yellow)
Colors can be specified with the element <color>, which is indexed; For more on specifying colors, go here.

Animated-Textures Element: <animated_textures>

This kind of element is for specifying animated textures. Animated textures are specified as sequences, which contain loops of texture frames and various timing and phase information. For example, suppose that a sequence contains frames (a,b,c). As time goes on, frame a will be translated first into frame a, then into frame b, then into frame c, and then will repeat the sequence, as shown below:

a - a b c a b c ...
b - b c a b c a ...
c - c a b c a b ...

This element has two kinds of child elements, <clear> and <sequence>.

The first one, <clear>, clears the sequences; if it has an attribute of "coll", it will clear the sequences for the collection specified in that attribute's value; if not, it will clear all the sequences. However, this command can be followed by commands to create sequences, which will then be executed as if no "clear" command had been issued.

The second one, <sequence>, specifies the sequences themselves. It takes these attributes:

This one also contains a child element, <frame>, which has a mandatory attribute of "index", which is the frame's index. There must be at least one of these in a sequence, for rather obvious reasons.

Control-Panels Element: <control_panels>

This kind of element specifies various control-panel features, such as what kind it is, what items it accepts, and so forth. It has these attributes:

Each kind of control panel is specified with the child element <panel>, which has these attributes:

Fader Elements: <faders>

This kind of element is for specifying various fader features, the faders being what causes the whole screen to change color when one is underneath a liquid or getting hit by something. It has two kinds of child elements, <fader> and <liquid>.

The first kind, <fader>, specifies features of each individual fader; it has attributes

and a child element <color>, which is not indexed. For more on specifying colors, go here. The fader types are these:
  1. Tint: fade to the fader's color value:
    [new color] = [old color] + ([fader color] - [old color])*[opacity]
  2. Randomize: do random shifts of the colors:
    [new color] = [old color] + [opacity]*[random numbers]
  3. Negate: darkens light colors and lightens dark colors. For each channel:
    [opacity complement] = 1 - [opacity]
    if [old color] > 0.5 then
       [new color] = max([old color], xor([fader color], [old color]) + [opacity complement])
       [new color] = min([old color], xor([fader color], [old color]) - [opacity complement])
    Intermediate results may be out of (0,1) range.
  4. Dodge: some weird processing. For each channel:
    [new color] = max([old color], 1 - (1 - [fader color])*[old color] - [opacity])
    Intermediate results may be out of (0,1) range.
  5. Burn: some weird processing. For each channel:
    [opacity complement] = 1 - [opacity]
    [new color] = max([old color],[fader color]*[old color] + [opacity complement])
    Intermediate results may be out of (0,1) range.
  6. Soft tint: fade to the fader's color value multiplied by the intensity (maximum of color-channel values):
    [intensity] = max(color channels of [old color])
    [new color] = [old color] + ([fader color]*[intensity] - [old color])*[opacity]
In all these equations, color values are from 0 (black) to 1 (white), and out-of-range result values are reduced to that range by subtracting whichever integer will put the result into that range.

The second kind, <liquid>, specifies faders for liquids; it has attributes

The index is which one of these liquid types:
  1. Water
  2. Lava
  3. Sewage
  4. Jjaro
  5. Pfhor

Landscapes Element: <landscapes>

This kind of element is for modifying landscape rendering. This element has two kinds of child elements, <clear> and <landscape>.

The first one, <clear>, clears the landscape options, setting them back to their defaults; if it has an attribute of "coll", it will clear the sequences for the collection specified in that attribute's value; if not, it will clear all the sequences. However, this command can be followed by commands to set up landscape options, which will then be executed as if no "clear" command had been issued.

The second one, <landscape>, specifies the landscape options themselves. It takes these attributes:

Texture-Loading Element: <texture_loading>

This kind of element is for setting what textures are to be loaded. It has one attribute, "landscapes", which is boolean; it indicates whether or not to load M2/Moo-style landscapes (collections 26 to 30). It also has a child element, <texture_env>, for indicating what wall-texture and scenery collections are to be loaded. It takes these attributes, all mandatory:

The defaults for Marathon 2/oo are, in order (walls, scenery):

  1. 17, 22 -- Lh'owon Water
  2. 18, 23 -- Lh'owon Lava
  3. 19, 24 -- Lh'owon Sewage
  4. 20, 25 -- Jjaro
  5. 21, 26 -- Pfhor

Those for Marathon 1 are, in order (walls, control panels, scenery):

  1. 17, 8, 23 -- Marathon Set 1
  2. 18, 8, 23 -- Marathon Set 2
  3. 19, 8, 23 -- Marathon Set 3
  4. 2, 24, 25 -- Pfhor

Note also that Marathon 1 has its landscapes in the wall-texture collections; the attribute "landscapes" is to be false for it.

OpenGL-Rendering Element: <opengl>

This kind of element is for modifying the OpenGL rendering. Currently, both texture-rendering modification and fog are supported; texture-rendering modification modifies the rendering of each bitmap. This element has these kinds of child elements, <txtr_clear>, <texture>, <model_clear>, <model>, <shader>, and <fog>.

The first one, <txtr_clear>, clears the texture options, setting them back to their defaults. If it has an attribute of "coll", it will clear the sequences for the collection specified in that attribute's value; if not, it will clear all the sequences. However, this command can be followed by commands to set up texture options, which will then be executed as if no "txtr_clear" command had been issued.

The next one, <texture>, specifies the texture options themselves. It takes these attributes:

Note: all resulting values will be pegged to the range 0 to 1. Here are the various opacity types:

  1. Crisp edges. The opacity threshold is 0.5.
  2. Fuzzy edges.
  3. Fuzzy edges with opacity = average of color channels.
  4. Fuzzy edges with opacity = maximum of color channels.

The opacities of all but the first will be scaled and shifted with opac_scale and opac_shift. The first one of these is good for objects with well-defined edges; the others are good for clouds, flames, energy-weapon bolts, and so forth, which will not have sharp boundaries. The average and maximum modes were included as a way of producing variable opacity without adding any new files; this hack was inspired by the semitransparency handling in the Tomb Raider series. The idea here is that the brighter regions are likely to be the more opaque ones in these cases. I've put both of them in because they behave somewhat differently; max has the same strength for saturated colors as for grays, while mean has less strength for saturated colors than for grays.

Here are the texture types:

  1. Wall Textures
  2. Landscape Textures
  3. Inhabitants
  4. Weapons in hand

The following texture attributes are deprecated, may not work properly, and should no longer be used:

The values 8 and 9 for the "clut" attribute are deprecated and should no longer be used. Instead, use a "clut" value of -1 and a "clut_variant" of 1 or 2.

The next one, <model_clear>, clears all the model definitions; it works much like <txtr_clear>.

The next one, <model> specifies a 3D model to be used in place of some sequence. Models can either be static, having no built-in animations (most 3D-model formats), or they can be dynamic, having such animations (Brian Barnes's Dim3 model format, for example). These animations are specified by sequence (animation in BB's terminology); each sequence should have at least one frame. There is one special "sequence", the neutral pose, which indicates a model with no animations applied. This element takes child elements <seq_map> and <skin>, and these attributes:

The scaling and rotations will be applied before the shifts; the rotations will be applied in order x, y, and z.

Its child element of <seq_map> is the sequence-mapping element, has these attributes, both mandatory:

A model element can have several such elements, covering many of a collection's sequences.

The model element's child element of <skin> has these attributes, which closely parallel those of <texture>:

The next one, <shader>, specifies custom shader definitions used by the shader-capable renderer. It takes these attributes:

The final one, <fog>, has these attributes:

and a color subelement, which indicates the fog color (default: gray [red = green = blue = 0.5]).

Software Rendering Element: <software>

This kind of element is for modifying the software rendering. This element has the child element <texture>

<texture> specifies options for wall textures only, CLUT 0. It takes these attributes:

Here are the various opacity types:

  1. Crisp edges. Opacity is unaltered (this will cause no visible change in the software renderer).
  2. Fuzzy edges.
  3. Fuzzy edges with opacity = average of color channels.
  4. Fuzzy edges with opacity = maximum of color channels.

In all cases, the wall texture's bitmap transparency definition is unaltered by opac_shift, opac_scale, and opac_type. Therefore, if a bitmap is marked transparent, the pixels that use color 0 will always be transparent, regardless of this MML.

Dynamic-Limits Element: <dynamic_limits>

This kind of element specifies various dynamic limits, more specifically, the maximum numbers of various entities whose quantity varies during the game. These are specified with various child elements, each one of which has a mandatory attribute of "value", which is set to the appropriate number. Here they are:

Player-Name Element: <player_name>

This is the default player name in netgames, which takes the form:
<player_name>Marathon Player</player_name>

Scenario Element: <scenario>

This element is for identifying the scenario. It has an attribute "name" which is the scenario name displayed in the Find Internet Game client, an attribute "version" which is the scenario version displayed in the Find Internet Game client, and an attribute "id" which is used to determine which games to gray out. The defaults for name, version, and id are blank.

There are also child elements <can_join> which specify other scenario ids this one can join.

Scenario names are limited to 32 characters in length. Scenario version strings are limited to 8 characters in length. Scenario IDs are limited to 24 characters in length.

Games show up as joinable when any of these is true:

All matches are case sensitive.

For example:

<scenario name="Marathon Infinity" id="Marathon Infinity">
<can_join>Marathon 2</can_join>

Keyboard-Defaults Element: <keyboard>

This element is for setting the default keyboard settings. It has an attribute "set" which indicates which of the three sets to set keys for (Standard, Arrows, PowerBook), and a child element <key> with attributes Here are the various actions:
  1. Moving Forward
  2. Moving Backward
  3. Turning Left
  4. Turning Right
  5. Sidestepping Left
  6. Sidestepping Right
  7. Looking Left
  8. Looking Right
  9. Looking Up
  10. Looking Down
  11. Looking Center
  12. Cycle Weapons Backward

Cheating Element: <cheats>

This element controls whether or not the engine will respond to the cheat codes; it has these attributes: and this child element: <keyword>, which is for specifying the cheat keywords. It has a mandatory attribute, "index", and some contained text, as with the text-string elements.

The cheat-code keywords and their defaults are

  1. Energy (1x): NRG
  2. Oxygen: OTWO
  3. Map Everything: MAP
  4. Invisible: BYE
  5. Invincible: NUKE
  6. Infravision: SEE
  7. Extravision: WOW
  8. Pistol: MAG
  9. Assault Rifle: RIF
  10. Rocket Launcher: POW
  11. Flamethrower: TOAST
  12. Fusion Gun: MELT
  13. Shotgun: PUFF
  14. SMG: ZIP
  15. Alien weapon: PZBXAY
  16. All weapons' ammo: AMMO
  17. Jump: QWE
  18. Everything (almost): SHIT
  19. Save at this spot: YOURMOM

For example, making the energy cheat into "JUICE" means setting up

<keyword index="0">JUICE</keyword>

Hold down control and type the cheat code in to activate it.

Logging Configuration Element: <logging>

This element is used to configure Aleph One's logging behavior. It has no attributes of its own. Its single child element, <logging_domain>, requests particular logging behaviors for a logging domain.

The <logging_domain> element has the following attributes:

The following are the currently-defined standard log levels:
  1. logFatalLevel: program must exit
  2. logErrorLevel: can't do something significant
  3. logWarningLevel: can continue but results could be really screwy
  4. logAnomalyLevel: can continue, results could be off a little, but no big deal
  5. logNoteLevel: something worth mentioning
  6. logTraceLevel: details of actions and logic
  7. logDumpLevel: values of data etc.
Note that the <threshhold> attribute requires that the level be specified as an integer (but that it need not equal one of the standard levels), and further that log messages with level exactly equal to the threshhold level will NOT be seen.


<logging_domain domain="global" threshhold="40" show_locations="true" flush="true"/>
This would set up the "global" logging domain such that only messages more important than "notes" would be seen; that source code filenames and line numbers would be included in the log; and that the log file would be flushed after every message, so a message logged just before an application crash would appear in the log file.


The <console> tag controls messages typed into or printed to the screen. It has these attributes: There are also child elements for macros and carnage messages:


Macros are substitutions performed on commands entered into the console. For instance, you can make a macro that changes ".1" into "I'll defend". Macros can be used for chat, or to shorten other commands. Each macro child element has an input and an output attribute. To trigger the macro, type a dot immediately followed by the macro input into the console.

Macro inputs can be letters and numbers, but not spaces. Anything after the first space will remain unsubstituted. For instance, ".1 you losers" becomes "I'll defend you losers"


<macro input="1" output="I'll defend"/>

Carnage Messages

Carnage messages are printed to the screen when a player is killed by himself or another player in a net game (assuming the gatherer has not disabled carnage messages). Each <carnage_message> tag has these attributes: A blank string (the default) results in nothing being printed.


<carnage_message projectile_type="14" 
     on_kill="%aggressor% killed %player% with a SPNKR" 
     on_suicide="%player% suicided with a SPNKR"/>

Level Scripting

Unlike most MML elements, a level-script element can only live in a map file, and it must be TEXT resource 128 or some equivalent, in order for its parser to know where to find it. Its root element is <marathon_levels> and not <marathon>, to distinguish it from the usual sort of MML.

It has child elements <level>, <end>, <default>, <restore>, and <end_screens>, all but the last one specify what individual level scripts to execute. The element <level> has a mandatory attribute, "index", which specifies which level the script is for; the first one is index 0. The element <end> specifies a script that is for the end of a game; The element <default> specifies a script that is for the entire map file; it is executed before a level's script is executed, for rather obvious reasons. The element <restore> is intended to restore parameters to their A1 defaults when switching to another map file; this is done because the parameters that the MML parser sets are set in a "sticky" fashion, and because saving and restoring default values inside the code would require a whole lot of extra coding.

These elements have child elements that specify the script entries; the entries are executed in the order that they are specified in the file. This means that music files played in sequential order will be played in the order that they are specified in, the first in the list played first, etc.

Directoris and files are specified in Unix fashion, <dirname>/<dirname>/<filename>, with a ':' being translated into a '/' in the MacOS. The root directory for such specifications is the map file's parent directory, so something like "Music/bang_my_head.mp3" means looking for file "bang_my_head.mp3" in the directory "Music", which is in the same directory that the map file lives in.

Aleph One supports playing back MPEG-1 movies, and AIFF, WAV, Ogg/Vorbis, and mp3 music.

Finally, the <end_screens> element is for specifying which PICT resources are to be used as the end-of-game screen displays. This specification is done with these attributes:

You can also use <load_screen>, <music>, and <random_order> in a <default_levels> tag in regular <marathon> MML.

Appendix 1: Additional Elements


Colors are specified with the element <color> colors may be either indexed (being list members), or non-indexed (being in isolation). The color channels are red, green, and blue, with values that range from 0 to 1. All the color-channel attributes (red, green, blue) are mandatory. This example makes color 7 be yellow:
<color index="7" red="1" green="1" blue="0"/>


Shapes can be specified with the element <shape>. A shape specification includes which collection, which color table, and which sequence or frame; a shape may also be allowed to be blank. A shape's attributes are A blank shape is specified as one having no attributes: <shape/>. A non-blank shape requires the collection and sequence attributes, and optionally the color-table attribute (default: 0).


Damage is specified with the element <damage>. Damage features are set with these attributes, which are all optional.


Fonts are specified with the element <font> like colors, fonts may be either indexed (being list members), or non-indexed (being in isolation). None of the font attributes proper are mandatory. This example sets font 4 to the default font for the computer terminals.
<font index="4" name="Courier" size="12" style="0"/>

Boolean data

This is not a separate element, but a kind of value of an attribute. These values for a boolean attribute, indicate that a flag is to be on or an action is to be taken. These values, indicate that a flag is to be off or an action is not to be taken.
