: Given that those are a bit easier to prepare, if you would like a hand with them, just let one know :)

I'm not doing them by hand, I'm writing a script to parse and draw terminals outside Aleph One. It's exactly what PS described, although if it were as simple as it sounds it'd be done five years ago. The level maps are done the same way: my own code mimics Aleph One's behavior.

For now, carry on normally. I can give you some tips to speed things up, though, in case you don't already know them.

In the console, you can activate terminals from anywhere on the level. Bring up the console (default key is backslash "\") and type:

Players[0]:activate_terminal(0)

and press Return. You'll see the level's first terminal message on your screen if you got it right. You can just vidmaster-jump to the level, use this command, and alternate pressing F9 and Return to screenshot all the pages.

Replace the last "0" with 1, 2, etc. to go through every terminal. You can use the Up arrow in the console to bring back the last command you typed, and edit or re-run it.

That works for everything except the "level finished" messages, if a terminal changes its wording once you complete the objectives. I wrote a plugin to help with that part. For example, install the plugin, jump to Infinity's "Confound Delivery", and type in the console:

Players[0]:activate_terminal(2) -- Tycho chides you for not exploring
complete_level() -- info is printed at the top-left of the screen
Players[0]:activate_terminal(2) -- Tycho is satisfied now
