: : 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

That's hardcore. I've just been snipping tooling when I reach each terminal. Didn't even know there was a console. Anyway, as I have to play the levels to do the writing, I'll probably just keep on keeping on unless there are some I can't be bothered exploring to lol.
