Concerning the Engine: Am I mistaken or is it roughly the same as in Marathon 2, with an additional duck or crawl mode? --Ranthoron 18:24, 13 Oct 2006 (CDT)

There is a duck or crawl mode? I was under the impression the engine was the same. MrHen
The Marathon engine is a revamped version of the PiD engine. The Marathon 2 engine is a /wildly/ revamped version of the Marathon engine, basically coded from scratch. Infinity added just a couple things to M2's engine, and AlephOne is a fork from M2's source. None of them contain duck.  :)
In the first Level of Marathon Infinity, there is a Pathway behind a fan beside the door to the first source of ammo. I remember, that I could get in with the original engine and therefore thought of a duck mode. But perhaps it is some form of jumping... --Ranthoron 15:42, 27 Oct 2006 (CDT)
This is accessible by flipping the switch on the opposite side of the hall from the fan. It lowers a flight of stairs. --Ecpeterson 03:40, 29 Nov 2006 (CST)

The game's name

Concerning the name: The information about "Infinity" referring to Anvil and Forge I remembered from a review in a german magazine. But it also can refer to the changing Timelines... --Ranthoron 13:44, 27 Nov 2006 (CST)

I have no problem with it being in the article, but I figured it would be good to point out to people that we cannot point to a strict Bungie statement. (Yet. If you ever find the article again we can make it a reference.) That being said, there are a couple different, good explanations for the name which is why a Bungie quote on the subject would help. As is, I am happy with the Anvil/Forge note. MrHen 17:08, 27 Nov 2006 (CST)
I do remember this, and I've never read a German magazine. I dunno where, though.  :/ --Ecpeterson 03:40, 29 Nov 2006 (CST)
Can we then include a reference to the (ominous) media? And I doubt I kept the magazine that long ;) --Ranthoron 11:40, 30 Nov 2006 (CST)

Stub status

Has this reached enough content to remove the stub? I vote yes. A quick proofread would probably be nice, but the content is there, which is better than most of the articles around here. MrHen 17:09, 27 Nov 2006 (CST)

I have the page open with the intention of reading it. I'll get around to it.  :) --Ecpeterson 03:40, 29 Nov 2006 (CST)

A1 stuff

Large chunks of this article (concerning enhancements to the engine, etc) ought to be moved to Aleph One. But it is too late and I am too tired to do it now. ⇔ ChristTrekker 22:49, 30 December 2007 (CST)
