Unhappy Re: Game Hint #1

I was thinking about the text in the background of the picture and I came up with this

Hybrid Systems Interchange Format (HSIF)

which is fish backwards

Maybe something to do with having a new type of robot needed to exchange things with other robots?

Thats the best I can come up with....

Its reasonable considering the power that the new control system has. makes a bit of sense when you think about it.

The goal of HSIF (Hybrid Systems Interchange Format) is to define an interchange format for hybrid system models that can be shared between modeling and analysis tools. HSIF models represent dynamic systems, whose dynamics includes both continuous and discrete behaviors.

Sounds reasonable to me.....and quite sensible

This is a very good idea. What if there is a wall in the middle of the field and the robot has to climb over it, use it's camera to find the game piece, and then bring it back to the other side of the field.

2. The blue spots don't match up with the spots you see on the fish,
3. The top fin has an orange spot on it, no where else do you see an orange spot.

You can also see normal jpg artifacts between lines of high contrast (The fish vs. the white background)

If there are any questions, or suggestions on how this was done, or how to further it, just contact me.
I did this same process to images from a wikipedia article on the JPEG compression.

The original image:
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Im...psis_(aka).jpg

The compressed image (compression increases LTR)
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...opsis_JPEG.png

Attached is the difference map with its contrast increased. Nowhere in it do artifacts appear like in the image hihihiflcl81pig posted. I'm no image expert, but it does appear like the change in filesize is not due to compression differences. Try 5634 (The order of Dave's changing signatures) for the password on that decoding program.

Re: Game Hint #1

I don't know if anyone has mentioned this, but if you think about water on Mars (particularly in relation to NASA's Phoenix), you are really thinking about ice, not water. Perhaps the playing field might be/involve fake ice:

Spades? Diamonds?

This year's game is robo poker. Problem solved.
*ears perk up* - poker?

Diamonds and spades?
I haven't seen that...

And why would the image change if it is inverted - like changing color to blue?
And - the background - what is obvious about it, not what is hidden?

And how come folks are getting grumpy?

Looking at the 2008 You Design the Game Design Thread, some possible connections with what has been thought of in this thread.

It is a fact that the GDC, or at least a part of it has read all the posts in that thread and taken it in consideration.
Now, we only need to know what they really thought about it, and what they decided to do with it...
