When I was trying to fully understand the image files, I had to dive into the binary code for the game. Which meant that I had to reference online documentation a lot, utilize a bunch of different tools and also build my own tool to help with the reverse engineering.
This year I have finally completed my Map of Middle Earth. AS you can see here here, I started the project about 2 years ago. At that time I had hoped to complete the map within a year, but it took me an extra year to get it done.
Finally, we have reached the last part of the image files, the animation instructions. This post assumes you have read the earlier ones, and if you haven’t, links to them can be found on this page.
Out in the fields, two guards stand watch over the local storage tower. A small Castle build I made during the summer of 2022. More pictures on Flickr and Instagram.
The blog has made it to 4 years, but its 4th year has hardly been an active one. My blogging has definitely gone off a cliff.
In a port city of Castonien the “swamp people” have carved out their own section. Creating a place for them to sell their wares to the locals and any traveler looking for something a bit more exotic.
While I haven’t spent much time writing for this blog this year, I have spent some time changing the whole platform. Going from a dynamic Wordpress site that requires PHP and mySQL database to one that requires nothing but the most basic web server functionality - the ability to send out static files.
This spring I bought a bundle of games that included Satisfactory and that game is killing this blog. It’s stealing time away from all my projects.
At the start of this year I was introduced to Wordle and took to it imminently. It is a simple word game where you try to guess a 5 letter word.
My work of the Middle earth map is going very slowly forward. It has basically stood still for a while when other projects have been taken up my time.
