Maps In Progress / Re: Mike007's Map Projects

An isometric view could be interesting. As this is different from the top view I did, I wouldn't mind for them to be on the site.

It is been a while since I made these maps. I barely remember what this game actually look like. But yeah, dealing with sprites with a Mode 7 game like this can be troublesome since the scale of the map and the sprites usually don't match. Since I made them from a top view perspective and the sprites are from a side view, I didn't bothered with it. Besides, I prefered a "clean" view.

Good luck with that as I can easily guess how hard this can be.

Another Nintendo-related book review!  It's Geeks-Line Publishing's NES Anthology!  I loved all their other books (N64, GameCube, Super NES), so will I love this one based on the revered NES?

I did three new things here:
1. I got a new microphone.
2. I put in proper subtitles.
3. I waited until the 4K version was processed before publishing it.

Am I professional yet?

Weirdly enough, I've also been experimenting while mapping The Simpsons: Road Rage (GBA) over the last few weeks.

I was hoping to present the main six maps with an isometric view like with my Equinox world maps but I've been frustrated by the way the sprites of objects like buildings, mail boxes and billboards are sometimes placed *very* sloppily. Like, most buildings are placed in the center of an enclosed square but there are a few that lie almost entirely out of theirs, which really aggravates my desire for proper alignment.

I have no idea if I'll ever finish these (chances are high that I won't!) but if I do, would you be upset if I submitted them to the site?

Here's a list of my more or less complete projects. I am not currently looking to map what might be missing in some of these games as they were experiments and the fact that I'm already struggling to complete my current project.

Yoshi's Safari (SNES)
Bomberman Quest (GBC)
Diddy Kong Pilot (Prototype) (GBA)
The Simpsons: Road Rage (GBA)
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn (DS)
Mario Party DS (DS)
Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing (DS)

This reminds me of a cross stitch picture that hung on the wall of my grandmother's apartment. It looked so much like a videogame to me - but it wasn't one, just a coincidence because of the pixelation and theme.

Interesting question!  I did solve it, but here was my process...

I cropped out your close-up insert and uploaded it to tineye.com.  That is my go-to reverse image search, but this time it didn't come up with anything.  Then I tried duplichecker.com which links to six reverse image search sites.  The two on the right, which are yandex.com and graph.baidu.com, both seem to think it's a video game map, with the latter pulling up many images of Super Mario Bros., Milon's Secret Castle, and other games with bricks and sky.

I looked again and I doubted that it's a game map.  The colored rectangles didn't look like game tiles.  For a second I thought they were flags.  But flags don't really look more vertical than horizontal.  Banners maybe?  Then I thought they might have been coats of arms, like European families have.  I Googled "maps with coats of arms" and this came up:


So it turns out, it's a map of Ireland.  The Heraldic Scroll & Map of Family Names & Origins of Ireland, to be precise.  If you like it, you can buy a puzzle version of it.

Well, that was a fun search.  Good to have solved it, I hate it when mysteries don't get solved...

Hello,

I saw a video game map on a restaurant wall in episode 10 of season 4 of The Big Bang Theory and I would like to know which game the map is from?

thank you
