Just tossing some more ideas around. Below is a pic of one possibility to try. using the center point, draw a line up or down to a letter. Rotate the square and do again. To be effective, you'd have to find the exact center of each dot, something I'm not that great at.

I would try but I'm not the graphics expert some here are

Very good analysis Ian. Makes more sense than the angle I've been working on. I'm not that graphically inclined but am a quick learner. Anyone know of a good tutorial for gimp of PS in reference to deltas and the such?

ps, watching your points to see if you get an applause

Haven't seen anyone mention this yet, but the title of the new numbered image is theriseofthenext.gif

The rise of the next WHAT?


On an unrelated note, I was wondering if there is anyway to change your username here. I usually go by johnlennon2 online (it's what everyone knows me as), but for some stupid reason (senile?) I used my e-mail nick. Anyone know if or how that can be changed? Thanks

Oh, and a big shout out to my fellow Nowheremen alumni Americandingbat!!! What's up???

Additionally:

'Grand' conspiracy could indicate that the number 1000 has something to do with something.

I'm glad the 'revelation' will be presented to those who are 'worthy to take the test', not just those who can actually figure the dang thing out!

They won't change it for you I don't believe but since your so new, I would request to abandon your nowheremen name and rejoin with the other.

Thanks. I try that route. I tried to change the e-mail of this account and then re-join with the old e-mail and new user name but it said that I couldn't use an e-mail address already in use. Would that take a day or two to reset maybe?

Can someone remind us again what the missing letters are from the previous puzzles? We probably need to keep them on hand.

Hmm dunno about that, but with regards to color values, I open the image in GIMP, open the "FG/BG Color" window (Dialogs/Colors), then use the little eyedropper tool ("Color Picker") and click-n-drag across the image. The six-digit hex number of the color, in the "FG/BG Color" window automatically updates as you move over a new color.

Heh, don't use me as a sign! I get the distinct impression that Hunt_admin feels there's been enough clues, from the choice of the thread the clue gif was placed on. From that thread:

Looks like you got an applause Ian, was it for your synopsis of the new clues?

Hmm, no, I have no new U2Us...
Could be points from the debate I just finished. Debating tends to rack up a few thousand points per debate; not the easiest way to earn points, however.


Edit to add: looks like the blue channel of the last image is completely 0's; the text at top and bottom is (antialiased) different intensities of the same hue; nothing found studying odd/even scanlines, either... perhaps the lookup just alternates between the top and bottom banner text, if that's how it works.

Sorry about the OT but I followed that debate for a bit from your sig, you both did an excellent job!

yes this post just says everything that we have seen in the past.

um I think we need to rearrange these into correct order work from there

and get the ones out that have not been said yet. we need to begin with first piece of the game

we can check off what we have done so far

I think the clues are in order, and I think we have seen the first three already, which are:

THE EIGHTH DAY OF THE EIGHTH MONTH OF THE EIGHTH
YEAR WILL SEE THE RISE OF A NEW CHALLENGE.

A REVELATION OF THE GRAND CONSPIRACY OF THE AGES
WILL BE PRESENTED TO THOSE WORTHY OF THE TEST.

CUNNING SKILLS OF CRYTPOGRAPHY AND LOGIC WILL BE
REQUIRED OF THOSE WHO TAKE THE CHALLENGE.

I think we are now up to the fourth clue, which is:

IT WILL BE OBSERVED THAT A CYCLE OF ADDITIVE COLORS
IS IMPORTANT AS WELL AS THAT OF SIMPLE DOTS.

So I guess now we look into a cycle of additive colors?

I just thought dots had to do with the last one, I feel like we figured the last one out, unless this is a clue because we could not figure it out....
i mean how do we really know we got it right...

i was looking at the last saying on the post.

saying something the missing component, is more important than what is not seen.

additive colors and cycles, look ups.





Title:
Diffractive subtractive color filtering technique
Document Type and Number:
United States Patent 3957354

Abstract:
A subtractive color filtering technique, suitable for the projection of color pictures, employs diffraction, rather than color dyes, for discriminatingly subtracting unwanted spectral wavelength portions of polychromatic illuminating light. The useful output light may consist of solely the zero-order diffraction output light or, alternatively, one or a certain combination of diffraction orders other than the zero diffraction order (such as the aggregate of all diffraction orders other than the zero diffraction order which corresponds to the complement of the zero-order diffraction output light).







FIELD OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates to electrophotographic color printers that use
additive colors.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Electrophotographic marking is a well known and commonly used method of
copying or printing documents. Electrophotographic marking is performed by
exposing a light image representation of a desired document onto a charged
photoreceptor.

Additive Color Model: How Do You Make It Intuitive

I've worked with the CMYK subtractive color model most of my career life. Now, everything has changed. I only work with RGB now, for web and web graphics. The problem is that while the CMYK model was easy to work with when making color adjustments or mixing color, because it was based on what you see naturally and the results were expected results (add yellow, see yellow,) with RGB it's not so intuitive. There must be some recommended way. I understand how it works so that is not the issue; What I'm looking for is how you are enabled to 'see' what the expected results will be, in your mind, in other words, how did you who work with it and have become comfortable with what you are doing to achieve a given result color, make your way to having it become an intuitive process?



some random page about colors circles and additive colors

here is a game with colors, not for the game i post, i post for the fact of adding colors gives you another, maybe this is something also

I didn't get any 'puzzle solving closure' from the last one; I think it remains still-unsolved. What were the proposed solutions you think might have been correct? However, if it still remains to be solved (before the next puzzle is posted), I'd think it would still be linked somewhere on the game page...

Wiki-Additive Color

en.wikipedia.org...

An additive color model involves light emitted directly from a source or illuminant of some sort. The additive reproduction process usually uses red, green and blue light to produce the other colors. See also RGB color model.

Results obtained when mixing additive colors are often counterintuitive for people accustomed to the more everyday subtractive color system of pigments, dyes, inks and other substances which present color to the eye by reflection rather than emission. --------For example, in subtractive color systems green is a combination of yellow and blue, in additive color, red + green = yellow and no simple combination will yield green.




did you ever wonder why the dots were green

I think need to rotate the picture and apply some RGBY Magic


something

Maybe this will help.


Could it be that if you get the right mixture of color over a dot it will reveal a letter or number.

Ooh, pretty. I've verified that the colors in the dots are entirely green, of different intensities, no blue or red at all. So, there wouldn't be any color blending going on.

I think the '16 is important, in color and number' is reference to the encoding of the message 'abovetopsecret' in the green-channel color numbers of the purple square in a previous puzzle. Note that there was other information in that square, which didn't seem useful at the time...


PS: Kellter, glad you enjoyed the debate!

I'm still looking at the 828201 image. When you invert the colors with Paint, it doesn't look inverted at all, though that might be from the blurring effect.
Original:


Inverted colors (by Paint):


Also, the image name, "theriseofthenext", has sixteen letters.
An anagram for "theriseofthenext" is "three of sixteenth". And remember:



Triangles have three sides and three vertices.

I realize this may not lead to something, but I'm happy with what I've found so far.
