Unpitiful Hacker: System Shock M-look Mod

This is a big one. No, really. News reached me via Qt3 that Malba Tahan - henceforth known as Saint Malba Tahan - has created a mod for the original System Shock. As well as letting you configure keys and plays with resolution, it adds mouse-look to the game. System Shock is, frankly, one of the most important videogames of all time, and the difficulty in actually learning its pre-mouse-look controls the biggest impediment to people going back and play it now. With Malba's work, that's gone. Go see Jim write here to get an overview of the wonder of Shock and then, assuming you can get hold of a copy, go get the mod here.

UPDATE: And Nabeel has done a video of it in action, to show how it works.
