Reverse engineering the codes at Disney Galaxy’s Edge #Disney #ReverseEngineering @AndrewMohawk
Disney star wars games involve a bunch of scanning Aztec codes for items and challenges. Andrew MacPherson couldn’t figure out how to generate the codes correctly. Taking apart the APK, each one was generated with its description and all the barcodes were put on GitHub.
Recently, my girlfriend and I had the opportunity to go on a holiday to the Star Wars Disney Hotel. It was definitely an unforgettable experience.
One of the many challenges that we came across during our stay involved scanning barcodes that were placed in specific locations or had to be gotten from various people — we initially thought these were QR codes. However, after trying to scan them with a QR code reader, we realized that they were actually Aztec codes.
You can see the results in the blog post here. Items are in the GitHub here.
