I can't tell you how much this is going to help the art team. We spend hours asking "hey what's going on with these three pixels over there?" "I think that's a bolt. Or maybe it's a cupcake." So yes, this is going to be very helpful to figure out some of the smaller details.

I could try but I don't have the videos extracted, could you send/upload a couple of screencaps?

@tobr, google for "Riveal". You might find that tool useful.

The video (the clockwise one) can be found here, in .mov format.

I love what you've done! How cool!

Is there any way you could get a hi-res image of the Whark up at all?? I'd love to use one as a wallpaper, but I can't find an image hi-res enough, other than fanart (deliciously good fanart... but still not the image I'm looking for.)

Any chance we could access the algorithm directly?

Sorry for reviving this but I was also wondering if this algorithm could be made publicly accessible. With the recent (official) addition of Riven to ScummVM it should be possible to either apply the algorithm in real-time (which wouldn't require any modification of the original data at all) or repackage the original data files with the algorithm applied (since ScummVM essentially contains the entire code for loading and processing the data it should be possible to do any required differentiations between the original and the modified files in there).

could you elaborate on this? I can't find any info about this online and it would be truly wonderful if we could get access to the original assets (or heck, I'd also root for Cyan to do an HD re-release of the game using those assets).
