[UPDATE] Tipi mouse over image change

The tipi now has a mouse over image http://sacredhatcasino.com/html/tipi_over.png
(see attached).
I suppose it's to draw our attention to the Mayan glyphs. According to http://www.ancientscripts.com/maya.html , the smaller top row is tz'ib' meaning "writing", and the highlighted one is uut-om, "it will happen".

eta: According to this Mayan to English dictionary, tz'ib' means paint, painting, write, writing. uut-om isn't in that dictionary as one word. Separately, ut means occur, happen, face, food; and om means foam. I'm thinking that the gylph together is what counts.

From what I can tell, the bottom glyph starts with u-to-ma or utom, which means "it will pass".

That colorful circle of direction

http://sacredhatcasino.com/html/direction.jpg
Many Native American tribes used color to denote direction. Searching the web, one finds that there is no single set of colors that consistently symbolizes direction.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardinal_direction
Quote:
Americas
In Mesoamerica and North America, many traditional indigenous beliefs include four cardinal directions and a center. Each direction was associated with a color, which varied between groups but which generally corresponded to the hues of corn (green, black, red, white, and yellow). There seems to be no “preferred” way of assigning these colors; as shown in the table, great variety in color symbolism occurs even among cultures that are close neighbors geographically.
Attached is the table from that page.

Maybe we have to identify which culture used the colors/directions in each of the four rings?

From that wiki page, the outer ring is Navajo, and the inner ring is Mayan.

Can we find which tribe used:
(Second ring)
North =White
East = Yellow
South = Red
West = Black

(Third ring)
North = White
East = Red
South = Green
West = Blue
?

How does she DO that?
Nice find, drizjr!

Per this page, the 2nd ring could be Cree or (if the green is discounted) Black Elk.
Or, possibly, Chippewa.

hi all. back from vacation and just checking in all my games i've been following. lost touch a ways back with Tom Tooman here (radio waves and trianglulation lol) but really happy to see more meaty offerings here.
I enjoyed reading the sacred hat casino website before i left for disney. Havent gotten much of a chance to think about it though but i did think its really well put together. (as have been all the phases of this particular game).

Hopefully I'll find more to contribute in this phase.

Smile

ncf

ps.. yes, i want to be like drizjr when i grow up Wink

According to: http://princetonol.com/groups/iad/lessons/middle/color2.htm
these four colors in this array, are the "Medicine Wheel".

one or two other sites have different colors for the directions.. however this site also has these colors being attributed to these directions.

On this arrangement, I found this:

http://ioway.nativeweb.org/culture/colors_and_directions.htm

The writer seems to be writing from personal knowledge, but also remarks that the colors change for different ceremonies.

That is definitely text. I'm still trying to get a clear enough image to be able to read it though.
I also pulled the 43_photo.gif apart and found no obvious image clues.. It might need to be destegged ( I have no idea what the key could be though).


itwillhappen ?
log in is the door ?

itwillhappen

The title of the page on http://sacredhatcasino.com/html/index.php has been changed to "itwillhappen" and there's now a login box over the bar code at the bottom of the page.
Obvious login leads to a new page:

Here is the result of contrasting & sharpening the hell out of that image X posted.



Then I decompiled the swf to get to what the missing ascenders on the 1st and 4th letters were.

Close as i can tell:
