To get some inspiration for my fm, I doodled again something nice for all to use.
I have changed the introgui from D3 to a TDM-Themed briefing gui, and added some code.
It shows a parchment, that automatically scrolls from bottom to top. The text appears like a writer, writes his text.
And in the background you hear and see thunderflashes sounds. (for now the backgroundimage its just a placeholder.)

It would be nice to create a candle light effect.
But would do you think?

In the following spoiler, you find the sourcecode.

Always nice to have more options for briefings. Can you post a video to show how it looks? Your description of it sounds exciting!

Dont have the apps to do this.


If you want to run/test it, copy the code to a empty file, give it a name and the fileextension ".gui" and place it in your tdm folder.
And in tdm run the command: testgui mygui.gui

But you dont hear any sounds. To solve that, replace the code with an existing gui, after a backup of the gui and run that gui.

Don't know if you already know this but today when messing about with the gui system i found a very nice editing console svar "gui_debug 1" shows the UI items bbox and the mouse rate on menu based guis, very nice to find those values need when trying to place the windowDef at a particular place.


This coupled with reloadGUI makes working on guis really fast, explains why idSoftware never made a gui editor for Doom 3 (the existent gui editor was made for Quake 4 afaik by raven software).

Check your PM.

Unless you're on Linux.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.
