Adventures in Game Development -- Day 12

Today I made some more progress in WEP Cracking: The Game. The progress made today was in recording what happens when booting into BackTrack Linux. For those who have never used BackTrack Linux, there is a command prompt at the beginning and it is full of computer jargon. Unfortunately, I had to copy it all down... and it took a while.

Here's what I wrote down:

The few "Sleep()" functions and such are added in by me for future reference to help me simulate the experience in the game. However, the rest of it is exactly how it appears when booting BackTrack Linux.

Tomorrow I'll blog about how the above is implemented into the code.
