Description

In the original doom, it had a little effect when you
started a new game, the screen would kinda wash away to
the next one. Pretty neat. Will this come back in later
releases? Or at least a decent substitute?

Maybe one day. This kind of thing is very low priority as it
has no negative impact on the actual playing experience.

Granted it has no negative impact, though i believe it's
jaako's goal to keep the very feel doom game, and I'm sure
that that melting scrren effect was a very unique feature
that doom had. after all this is a feature request, not a
bug report.

Now that we're taking the screen capture at the beginning of busy mode, we actually can do the melting effect. It's just a matter of doing similar animation with a bunch of tall quads and the screenshot, running when the busy mode ends.
