If you’ve been playing Doom 3, you’ve seenthe myriad of in-game user interfaces (PDA, computer monitors, machinerycontrols). Moreover, if you’ve perused the SDK, you’ve probably noticed theGUI scripting system thatallows players/developers to create their own game controls and menus.Now, Bernd Kreimeier, who has created and contributed to scores of Linux gamingprojects over the years (Q2Java and several Loki ports), has released a proofof concept mod that transcends the existing GUI functionality: TerminalDOOM.
Terminal DOOM allows the player to walk up to a monitor and play theoriginal DOOM shareware levels from within Doom 3 (screenshots).The mod is intended to demonstrate that fully interactive surfaces arepossible in the game; Kremeier has written a draft documentthat delineates the utility of interactive surfaces in gaming.
Kremeier also notes that the Doom 3 source for the mod will be released inthe near future (a changelogand debug.so are available already).
