In Response To: Marathon Betas (President People)

The May beta showed early progress toward Marathon's more complex maps, but the Shapes file reveals two new collections since January. One contained map squares in the PiD style, which were obsolete already. The other contained graphics for a motion sensor, but I guess that took a while to catch on.


(artist's rendition)

As we all know, the June beta was a lot more recognizably Marathon, especially in the HUD. The Shapes file shows that some familiar weapon graphics were already waiting in the wings.

In the June demo map, there are several proto-Hunters and one spider-like creature, seen only in invisibility mode. That's probably because the poor guy wasn't matted correctly for transparency.

All the Shapes goodies you expect are included below, for both betas. This one's for Eight Nineteen; here's lookin' at you!
