Q: Hey, I thought Marathon needed serial numbers!
A: The versions released with the Trilogy Box Set were stripped of the serial number code. These will work fine - as long as you're not trying to play with folks who are using older versions.

Q: Wow... can I do whatever I want with this stuff?
A: NO. Bungie still holds the copyrights to these files. They're allowing them to be distributed for free (mostly because you can't buy them any more) - but they're still Bungie's intellectual property. You can't, for example, sell them.

I really want more info about Marathon, and running it on my computer! Where can I go?
There are a number of sites devoted to this game:

* Marathon Open Source is the grandfather of Aleph One sites
  - http://source.bungie.org/
* Aleph One/SDL is devoted to... well, Aleph One/SDL
  - http://www.uni-mainz.de/~bauec002/A1Main.html
* OrbitalArm was set up to help Windows players play Marathon
  - http://orbitalarm.bungie.org/
* AlephOne has a SourceForge site
  - http://sourceforge.net/projects/marathon/
* Fileball and The Archives contain many Aleph One files

NOTE: Until we get something more concrete, I'm marking any builds that depend on this license- RESTRICT="nomirror"
