A show-stopper is the lack of a Swim key. This makes it impossible for the player to get out of fluids in the game. This makes many levels of Marathon 2 and Marathon Infinity impossible to complete. For example, the first level of Marathon Infinity requires the player to navigate a series of flooded rooms and then emerge from the fluid at the base of an elevator. Without a swim key, the player will become stuck and will not be able to continue.

The controls are now fully configurable, and also come with a choice of 3 presets. The terminals are now readable, and can be navigated using A/B or L/R.

Press the Activate button to respawn after dying.

Saving/Loading works but is tempremental.
