New Interface (MaraMag March '95)

Uploaded Jul 22nd, 2012 for Marathon


Another Marathon-Style HUD plugin based on Hopper's Marathon Classic HUD.

This one comes courtesy of Hopper, who sent me the March 1995 issue of MaraMag, included on the second disc of the Marathon Trilogy Box Set.

The plugin is almost exactly like the Marathon Classic HUD, save for the background image, which was made by... a guy named ture. The full email address given in the article is:

Danish style indeed, you can see the Bang & Olufsen influences. ;)

I bet Ture never expected to see this piece from his University of Kansas student days unearthed after 17 years.

Great work on reanimating this one. :)

Research suggests that the artist is Ture Wibrand, who went on to a successful design career in Copenhagen. Here's to you, Ture!

Good job!

It's really important that every hideous rendition of the Marathon 1 HUD is its own separate file. That way, when I visit Simplici7y, half the front page is filled up with insignificant variations on the same awful HUD. Thank you!
