Well, technically, isn't this the same as running linux fo example, starting up a virtual machine with windows in it and then start a program inside the virtual machine?
DF is just another virtual machine and you're trying to program something in it's unique code...

Wait, that would mean that DF could actually serve as an OS? And it has it's unique built in programming language? Ok, this might become awesome... :D

Either a robot-dorf apocalypse, or it becomes Glados except with magma instead of neurotoxins

Now imagine what would be possible if toady implemented moving fortress parts  :o *shudders*

I've been grinding away constructing the memory banks that will be storing pixels for the graphical display. Here's a little preview:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Not even close to finishing it. I don't want to jinx anything but this will probably be the largest single component. I'm really glad I downsized the display, I don't think my original would have fit on a 3x3 embark and would have had to section it out to other z-levels (it will probably be 5 z-levels tall).

Basically it stores each individual pixel (or hatch) on the display where each pump-pressure plate combination can turn one on and off. There's probably a technical term for it, if you know i'd appreciate it.

This is scary. It's going to destroy everything.

THIS IS AWESOME.
If you actually get it to work, I congratulate and stare at you.

Mad scientists' journal entry #5:

The first row of screwpumps supported by gears below is now complete as the pixel controlling memory banks begin to take shape. Brace yourself, large image ahead.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

And this image so you can fully understand how big it really is (embark size is 3x3).

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The left side with all the gray pumps will be user controlled and the green side A.I controlled.

There are still TONS of things I need to do to get this component in working order. The layer above needs screwpumps as well, also I need to link each of those pressure plates to a hatch on the graphical display. I've got a very good idea how the gearing is going to work, but I should probably look a little further ahead to make sure everything is able to talk to each other and work the way it's supposed to. Especially the A.I controlled side as its gearing might need to differ from the users side. I can probably put that part on hold for a bit since I really can't speculate how the A.I will work untill I complete everything on the users' side.

I'm sure a proper dwarf fortress A.I. would be even more terrifying. It probably would'nt kill you right away, just flood rooms at random with magma while cracking height jokes and calculating the answer to the ultimate question, how many elves can one kill with bolts made from the bones of a single elf.

The answer is 42.....
Hey, an idea:
Catch many rats, put them in the computer pressure plates when it is finished, and let them calculate more answers this way

I still haven't won anything yet, all I have built and designed right now is the bridge that will allow the user to communicate with an A.I and it to respond. It'll start getting tricky after this when I essentially need to build the processing center of the A.I's brain so it can translate what the user types out into something it can work with. It'll be tricky but fun at the same time because there's so many different ways I can do it.

Screwpump count: 1920
Gear count : 960 (will quadruple or quintuple when this component is done)
pressure plates: 960

It sounds like a FPS nightmare, but luckily it wont be as bad as I thought it would. Only a small handful of the pumps will be active any any given point.
