This is the first screenshot of Maelstrom that I could find. It was right around the first week of development. As you can see, the title bar was present, and color scheme was non-existent. Along with the standard buttons, the theme is very distinguishable from modern versions except for the rich text box on the bottom with its color scheme.
The title bar was removed, and the buttons replaced with labels. While the command labels and key results are displayed on the top, the color scheme in this screenshot is reminiscent with modern versions. This also had an about window which was later removed. This version also featured a grey gradient made by Lynxy.
This screenshot introduced the first version with a modern look and feel. The key test results being on the top, rich text box on bottom left and statistics and command labels on the lower right. There are also 4 more key test result types.
This is a screenshot of Maelstrom on top of a StealthBot window. It is showing off the channel characteristic where if a bot is able to join channels, it will join a channel specified in the settings. It also centered the program title text. This was also when the statistics shown started to change, as features were added/removed and things I felt were pertinent at the time. Vector as author also added to title.
This version of Maelstrom changed the color of the title and the divider between products.
This version changed the divider color to brown and the product names themselves to yellow, a color consistent with later versions. The grey gradient added in previous versions was removed.
This version changed the program title color to white and the divider color to grey, reminiscent of the standard look and feel of Maelstrom. Other product and jailed key test result types were added and invalid color changed to white.
This screenshot shows off the benchmark feature of Maelstrom. At the time you had to set Benchmark=1 in the config and load the program. A separate window with barely any formatting show will show up. This allows you to test how fast Maelstrom is testing your keys. The title text replaced Clan CODE with CodeSpeak.
This screenshot of the Maestrom 4.X series shows two separate command labels that reload proxies and reload CD-Keys respectively, as well as a config label that opens up the new config screen (introduced in Maelstrom 4.0). In this screenshot, a progress section for each product. as well as the key benchmark feature being added onto the main form and no longer requiring a config variable.
This is the first version of the configuration screen released with Maelstrom 4.0, a replacement to the requirement of editing the configuration file manually and then clicking “Reload config”.
In this version, there is a new command label, “Check for Update” which will do a manual update check for a new version.
This was the 2nd version of the configuration, done with organization in mind. There is much less clutter in this version and everything is more organized.
