I know everyone is sad and upset about Disney’s latest move…. Although this is way less cool than the real thing I have started a project to archive all the VMK experience. I have worked very hard so far and am continuing to update it every day. Check out the site!

Hope you all like it! :)

GREAT!

I found only one problem

I am getting a half picture in the Penny Arcade

Also, are you still working on some of the audio? In some of the rooms, I'm not getting any audio

I have been working on a similar site but I have now given up, pm me and I can give you all the 10000+ photos I've taken/downloaded of VMK/Host events.

I have a suggestion

You could make all of the different types of guest rooms with sounds

I will post a picture you can use that has all of the guest rooms in the normal guest room window (I have the VMK Font)

That is amazing!

I love that you can go from room to room... and that it didn't take any time for the mansion lobby to load AND all the ghosts were waiting!

I hope with all my heart that we get to keep the real thing - but this is awesome!

Well done!

Great job, Oboeman.

As time for VMK grows short, if there are screenshots any of us could take for you, please post.

Can we collect sound? How do we capture sound?

oboeman
05-06-2008, 04:35 PM
All 6 lands have complete navigation and sound. More to come!

Am I the only one not hearing any sounds while going on the site ?

Taytorjo

I can't hear sound either.

TikiIslander
05-07-2008, 04:28 PM
If you're having trouble with the sound, try a different browser. It doesn't seem to work in firefox, but it's fine in IE :)

oboeman
05-07-2008, 09:18 PM
Hope everyone is enjoying the site...Im having a great time making it! I do need a little favor. I do not have all the guest rooms. All I need is to capture the sound from the following rooms:


Castle Suite Guest Room
Haunted Mansion Conservatory Guest Room (NOT the holiday one)
Monsters Inc Laugh Floor
Tron Guest Room

Once i have that I will have all the sounds but one room...Club 33... if anyone has that i would very much like it! Just post here if you can help or PM me. Thanks!

There is a HUGE new update. Due to the limits of the first server for VMK Archives...I have been forced to move to a bigger site. This site has become extreamly popular thanks to you all! The server switch should be compleate by 11:15 PM EST. There may be a few problems if you visit the site before that time.
The new site is now http://vmkarchives.oxyhost.com/
Also all of the guest rooms should be loaded and ready to explore. I would say I am very close! Thanks for all the help!

If you missed the updated link click here! (http://vmkarchives.oxyhost.com/index.html)

Too bad I missed the chat but I want to thank you SO much for doing this. My heart has been broken these past couple of days and now that I can just have the audio of the rooms playing in the background while I do other stuff is amazing. It just feels like I am still there. Thank you sooo much.

oboeman
05-25-2008, 04:27 PM
I am trying to work my magic to get the dark ride rooms... Lets see if I can pull it off! Also just a reminder for all people having VMK withdraw, VMK Archives is a great way to relive your experence as close as posible to the real thing. If you have not stoped on by VMK Archives yet...what are you waiting for? The site is http://vmkarchives.oxyhost.com/index.html

What happened to this website? It doesn't seem to work anymore

The website at this address http://vmkarchives.oxyhost.com/index.html is an ARCHIVE SITE. The real VMK site/game ended May 21, closed their gates for good.

DenverVal
06-05-2008, 11:38 PM
Yes, we realize that, but you get an 'error - page not found' when you go to the archive site.

HARRYRABBIT
06-06-2008, 12:41 AM
I guess the site is down right now then.

aengus
06-06-2008, 08:32 AM
Its been down for a bit, a friend of mine noticed.

I hope its not becasue vmk came after him for any copyright violations @_@

That would be just sad, that should never be a concern when its fans and not for profit. Not for a game that is extinct.

oboeman
06-06-2008, 10:07 PM
Well the place that was hosting the site shut me down...I think it was because I had large MP3 files and many pictures. So update your bookmarks folks!
The new site is http://vmkarchives.110mb.com/
Tell all your friends you can come back! Hope we won't run into anymore issues!

I'm so glad to hear it! I took a tour to celebrate! It was good to hear the music. I got myself more lost than usual in Injun Joe's cave and the mines.

I noticed that if you click on Fantasyland in the castle forecourt it takes you to Castle Gardens and the gallery instead of storybookland. I was headed over to visit Monstro. :goodvibes

I'm glad it's back. Thx oboeman. I miss VMK. Any chance of getting into the caves? LOL
DenverVal, did you actually get into the caves? I helped many, many people get to the top of Tom Sawyer Island. I'd love to get in there. hehe
I had no trouble getting to Storybookland.

I had no trouble getting to Storybookland.Ok, so maybe it was the mines, but there are two different rooms... it's been a long time since I have been there. My characters always headed directly to fireworks :lmao: I did get to Storybookland, just not the direct route. Did I know that there was a monorail entrance in the Dragon's cave? If not, I discovered it while I was looking for the spell room. I have a picture of that to add to your archive if you're interested, oboeman! I loved the spell room :)
