I thank Garthor for reminding me that "you shouldn't be writing libraries unless you really know what you're doing. They have to be designed very well in order to be useful.".

This is a library for a HUD system which can be used in any project.

The library inputs information from you to generate dynamic statistical bars for attributes (set by the developer) which can be updated by calling a proc. You can have as many bars as you wish (depending upon your screen size). A global variable is also defined to start/stop the HUD from within the game.

The library requires no modification and can be directly ported into any project. Read HUD.dm for more information. A demo is also provided.

This library is best used in stand alone, single player games as it uses quit alot of system resources (though it can be used in multiplayer games aswell, if lag isnt a big problem).
