and had to pick the name Maleficnt it would not let me use Maleficent2 or Maleficent

I have a room named underwater don't know what is in it because it shut down on me :(

operating hours

Even when a game has great safety features and controls, there's no substitute for a hands-on approach and people to call on. That's why VMK is only open when we can moderate it:


10:00 a.m. — 1:00 a.m. EST
7:00 a.m. — 10:00 p.m. PST

Whenever the game is open, there are Cast Members on hand to help Players.

BLAST!

will try again tomorrow.

Pin Collectors Take Note!
You can win exclusive pins in the game by finding Disney Characters like The Yeti and Esmeralda the Fortune Teller, and snapping photos of Hidden Mickeys. Find out more in the Game Guide.


I can never get logged in.....:(

I can get in, but sometimes it takes a few tries. I had to clear my cookies once. It will also kick me out after some of the games and the castle game I can't even play without it tossing me. There are a lot of bugs to be worked out. DH and his friend, both work in IT, say it looks more like alpha, rather then beta.

Keep trying! I really wish you could look people up on there so it would be easy to find one another. Hope you can get in soon!!!

You're not slow! It's taken a lot of us time to figure it out. :) I suck royally at the POTC game. DH just laughs when I get sunk. He loves it when my ship explodes. sigh...

Anyway, to get a camera go to Main Street and enter the VMK room. (I forget what it is called exactly.) When you enter, click on the pirate sign on the left. Then you can buy a camera. After than, just click on the shop button on the bottom, choose the VMK store and you can buy film there.

I finished the Hidden Mickey Quest today - found all 50! :cheer2: I was so happy.

To get the camera, sign in, go to Main St. and then go into VMK Central. There is a large poster/sign that is to the left side of the page. It is black with a skeleton/pirate and says Dead Men take no pictures. Click that to buy a camera. After you buy the camera look for the hidden Mickeys. If you can't find them just ask by typing in the space at the bottom of the page and someone will most likely tell you where they are. Go down to the bottom of your screen where the icons are, click the camera and follow what it tells you - drag it over where you see the hidden Mickey and take a picture - find 10 hidden Mickeys and get a pin. HTH to get you started.

05-29-2005, 10:24 PM
all I could do today was play POTC could not go anywhere else tried to go on the jungle cruise but it shut down on me.

If I get back in I will go get my camera and find Hidden Mickeys.

the fortune teller did not give me Maleficent's pin but Esmeralda's pin.

But thanks for the help.

Also if you stand in the teacup in the emporium and click it will take you to "It's a Small World Market" then go on the wooden bridge and exit and it takes you to "Storybook Land"


I love this game ;)

No way to add friends yet without actually seeing them. I hope they are working on that.

They really, really, really need to work on their dictionary. My new room is Evil Eeyore. I didn't want to be evil, but they wouldn't take anything else I could think of. :rolleyes: Demonic donkey!

By the way, I'm Guest 21700 at the moment, although I signed up as wdwdreamin. How long till our name is accepted/rejected and how do you try again if it doesn't accept it?

Thanks for the help!

Maleficent2
05-31-2005, 11:04 PM
you have to go inside the monorail and it is over the front part to your right....I'm not there so does that make sense?

It took about 2 days to reject my 1st name Maleficnt and a screen pops up so you can change it if I remember rightly.


hope that helps

that happened to me too, so I ended up deleting the ones that didn't take and then went back the second day and reshot the pic till the little mickey icon showed on there. now I have all 50 and my bronze , silver and gold award pin . found out if you take a pic and its not what you want you can delete it before you save and will not reduce the number of pics.

my question is if you put them in your photo album how do you access your album or what exactly the album purpose is in game other then just storing your pics.

pins: if there are any cast members from VMK that read these posts suggestion how about a lanyard for the women?

pixiedust23
06-01-2005, 08:51 AM
You can view the pictures in your album by going to your room where the album is and double clicking on the album. Does anyone have more than one room yet? Also if you get to level 2 on the pirate game do you get more than 15 credits when you win? Is there anyway to get more than 20 credits for the jungle cruise game?

I'm not sure what i'm doing different but I always get 40 credits when I play jungle cruise.

Keep your finger on your down arrow so your boat will stop & you can get all of the pictures.

Hey I visited you in your room! I'm radioalicat on VMK. Right after I left your room the whole thing started to get funky. Probablly because I also had the NBA playoff virtual courtside play-by-play running too.

I just thought it was funny you couldn't use TO or FOR. I really wanted to say bathroom after all the water but it won't let you do that either, lol.

Anyway, thanks for sharing your room!

Hey there!

I just started playing VMK recently -it's horribly addicting!!!!

I'm Bluegrrl on the site, and I usually have blue pigtails and a blue kilt or jeans with a pinkish or purple top. My room is My tea room, and you can catch me there.

What is up with the word filter though - I feel like I have to have a thesaurus nearby when I play just to figure out how to get around it!!! Is this another case of Disney being super paranoid about safety or is it a problem with the beta? It's getting less fun to chat with people - especially since you have to talk like a cave man to get your point across!!

Any idea when they are oipening up TomorrowLand and FrontierLand? I think they take away words for editing purposes. Also it won't let you use numbers, prolly so kids can't give out their ages.

Have you all seen the Hanuted Mansion Room some kid got for doing a Quest. It was really cool!

Go to the Rooms part and check out the Insider Tour Room it is a room that the guys who are developing the game have. Very Cool to get around double click on the coffins!

Close out that window and reload, keep doing this over and over until you get in. That is what I did and I still get errors now but alot less of them.

You have to Double Click I meant to change that in my post but there was an car accident in front of my house and I got sidetracked took the Police 1 hour to show up!

You have to Dbl Click on everything. See if that helps.

1. If I try to register, using an email address...every email address that I attempt to use comes back as already in use.

2. If I try to log in using my Disney.com user id, then it acts like it is loading, and after a few minutes I get a very polite message telling me that there has been an error, to hit okay and try again.

I've tried clearing my cookies and I've tried starting over a number of times (since about 8pm eastern time).

For my DDs', I have them set to Child. They get the VMK logon screen, VMK loading, dictionary loading, then a message indicating the connection was lost.

Any time you type in a word not in their dictionary, you will get three #. I believe all numbers are not in the dictionary to prevent kids from entering their phone numbers and other personal information.

So, if you typed: "There are four hidden mickeys", it would come up "There are ### hidden mickeys".

State names are also not in dictionary. So "Hawaii is the 50th state", you would get "### is the ### ###"

It gets rather frustrating, but I understand the concern.

QUOTE=Maleficent2]hi and thanks for being online and making such a fun game even for us grown ups

1.What about us poor folks with dial up just can not seem to make any points and if it takes forever to get anywhere in the game as far as points I am afraid alot of us will get bored with it and lose interest?

2.Will there be codes out there we can get for points other ways than just at the parks?

3.Will there be "real"pins that can be had for finishing quests as well as points?

4. Will Pal Mickey give out any codes while using him at WDW?(hint hint)



1. Sorry for the slowness, the game is currentlly designed for broadband. Not sure that is much help...sorry

2. Yes, keep your eyes open there is aready a code released!!

3. There are "real" prizes that can be won from the in park (Disneyworld & Disneyland) quests. Perhaps you can get a pin....

4. You will have to ask again once the game has launched...sorry!


Thanks,

I noticed while playing today that when I took photos of some hidden mickeys, it wouldn't asked me to save - just tell me I found one. However, as in previous days, and in some instances today, it simply gave me to golden mickey icon and then proceeded to ask me to save. I think it's fun to be playing it while they tweek all these things.

And did anyone else check out Yvan's room? Wow - it is cool! It's different from all the rest - a pirate ship setting, I think. He wasn't in the room when I visited though :(

Too early to tell while they are still in beta and not many people have gone to the parks, but I do know some people who have traded to receive Mickey ears for park-goers; presumably you could do the same for the pin. Obviously that wouldn't work for the logo.

Can someone please tell me how I can get an actual name as opposed to a guest No,? I'm sick of being guest number whatever............I want a proper name.
All you can do is wait for them to approve it. Patience. I wonder if there have been more people playing than they expected?

I've found most of the Mickey's but I can't for the life of me figure out how to buy pins. I have a couple pins but I don't know how to buy them at Small world etc.
Double-click on the cash registers in the stores, and you'll get a purchase window. After you've done that once, you can access the store even if you aren't actually in the store. You probably already know, but after you get a pin, you double click the shirt symbol to wear it.

Good luck all. If you see me in the park (Bezoar, lime green guy in a green shirt), and would like help, just ask.

It's the one behind the sign above the stage in the Music game. I got the rooftop one ok, but the one behind the sign, never says it's a hidden one. I've tried taking it from all angles & still the same result.

It is on the grey wall isn't it, just beside the 2 sashes. That's the only one I've found in there anyway.

Just a note for those who have been playing for a while. Go back and double click on the cash registers again. There are new items since I first did it that didn't show up until I went back and double clicked again.

Also, I don't remember getting 100 credits for the first song I mixed at the Music Game. However, I went in & created a new mix on Friday and got 100 credits for creating it and then another 100 for playing it. Maybe a new feature?

In addition to getting 10 credits every hour in the Music Game for playing a song, you can get 10 credits every day for mixing a new song or editing an old one.

piratesmate
06-13-2005, 06:39 AM
Oh :blush: okay. I did see that but thought there might be more. In that case:

Fireworks game:
To score "awesome" or "flawless" wait until the shapes start to flash and then a little more. Evidently "flawless" is reserved for the last moment before it disappears from the screen. When two appear on opposite sides of the screen, it's better to take a "good" by clicking early than to miss one by trying to get "awesome" for both.

The shapes seem to repeat in the same order and general vicinity every time you play. If you play often enough, you'll begin to "learn" where they'll be making it easier to score higher.

The Bronze pin is given for being in 6th place at the end of round 4 - which means you'll get kicked back to the lobby also. If you are in 5th or 6th place at the end of round 3, do NOT explode any more in the 4th round to be in 6th for round 4.

The Silver pin is given the first time you get to level 5.

The Gold pin is given when you get 200,000 points. You also get Maleficent's Dark room (so don't buy it like I did. LOL) They must have changed this because you no longer need to be in second place to get the pin - just reach 200,000 points.

If you're still having trouble with the game, try using someone else's faster computer! I have no trouble exploding the fireworks on my system (Pentium4 2.8GHz) but on DD's system (Pentium3 GHz) I have trouble changing between the fireworks shapes even though we have DSL. It's not the mouse as much as the speed of the computer that leads to success here.

The game is still experiencing some bugs in that there are places when it seems to hesitate or "hang" momentarily. You usually miss several fireworks in that period. It shouldn't affect your ranking though as it happens to everyone as near as I can tell.

Pirates:
If you are having trouble avoiding getting blown up too early in the game, try starting your own game & then start immediately - before anyone else joins. That way you only have 4 ships on the screen. Don't be surprised if your "partner" ship does not move at all. You will still win even though the team score won't get you on the "high scores" board as you split points.

On the second or third level a "skull & cross bones" is beamed out of a cloud. If you run your ship through it, your cannon shots change to "fire balls" which will take out the enemy in a single shot - maybe two.

In the first stage of level 2 there is a whirlpool. Avoid it, obviously, but it won't sink your ship. It just spins you around for a bit.

If you lose track of one of the enemy ships in level 2, try checking the lower right corner in the fog. They like to "hide" there.

You continue to get 40 points for winning 10 pirate games, even after moving to the next level. No additional dubloon pins are given though.

- - - - - - - -
That's all I can think of for now.

If you are having trouble avoiding getting blown up too early in the game, try starting your own game & then start immediately - before anyone else joins. That way you only have 4 ships on the screen. Don't be surprised if your "partner" ship does not move at all. You will still win even though the team score won't get you on the "high scores" board as you split points.

that does not work for me the opposing team always wins :(

Hmmm, I noticed it was getting harder to beat the pirates - even in the first 2 levels. I thought it was because I'd beaten level 3.

I'm still able to beat it most of the time though. I have a terrible time if there are 4 ships on each side. You just keep running into each other & can't control where the ships go. They get stuck in a clump & the whole team dies.

I don't claim to be good at the game, but if anyone wants to try for a 2 person team win I'd be willing to give it a try. You can PM me to arrange it or just check to see if I'm on. I'm in & out all day. :blush:

It's safe to say, Mal...that you got me addicted! Thanks! Hehehe! ;)

I met another DISer on VMK tonight! BlueMinnie was her name...very nice, but not sure of her screen name on the DIS.

Also, met someone else whose name was Kungaloosh, which is a phrase heard on here a lot. I asked her if she knew about the DIS and she didn't, but I explained why people would ask her all the time! She thanked me because she finally figured out why people would ask her about her name all the time! :)

It's addictive...it is...I think I need counseling! ;)

I have learned how to use teleporters to go between private rooms!! :cheer2:

Have you, or are you interested in, linking into the Dis Board Room Teleporter network? Pumpkinfish (MissBelle on VMK) and I (Bezoar on VMK) can get you linked in. We currently have between us, I think, more than 20 rooms linked. Our lobbies link to a central lobby, from which you can use a Boat teleporter to link to the Dis Clubhouse Room, donated by Taryn (DoomCookie on VMK). Copied from a post in another VMK thread:

Thanks to the one and only pumpkinfish (aka MissBelle on VMK), we now have a second lobby to put personal teleporters in! Her lobby is linked to the original lobby via another set of tea cups.

So, if you'd like to install a teleporter link from your own room to the Dis teleporter network, just buy a coffin teleporter from the Golden Horseshoe Mercantile, install one of them in your own room, and trade the other one to either MissBelle or Bezoar!

Have fun, and see you at the VMK.

O.K I have a teleporter in my room. And I gave the other to Miss Belle...so today I tried to use it, and it didn't work for me. I know that it does work, because when I was in my room, adding my new chairs and moving them around, some one came in, when straight for the coffin and teleported off somewhere. So after I got my chairs where I wanted them, I walked over to it, but it wouldn't open!

That is how it works, right...I just walk up to it and it should open then I can walk in and it will take me to the room the other porter is...right!?

Sometimes the teleporters are a little bit finicky. For the coffins, I find what is best is to walk right in front of it (the front being the side with the round door knocker), and then double-click on the door knocker.

For other teleporters, sometimes if I start standing next to it, it doesn't work, and I need to stand away, and then click inside the active part of teleporter.

Hope that helps.

By the way, if anyone won any of the neat limited-availability rooms, I'd love to have a teleporter link to it to check it out!

You have to click on his head two times.

There is:
Ned - In Shrunken Ned's store
The Dragon - In the Dungen
The Yeti - In the Mattahorn
Blackbeard the Pirate - In his tree house
Esmeralda - In the Emporium

Double click on each of them, the firs time you find them you will get a pin and 20 points. Then go back every day, and double click on them you will get 20 points agian. So each day you know that you will get 100 points, and they do add up.

If you place within the top 10 at the Jungle cruise--get 100 bonus points

piratesmate
06-20-2005, 01:05 PM
I've gotten points for Ned, the Yeti & the others 2ce in a day but didn't know why. I am often on as soon as the virtual rope virtually drops ;) so it's possible that it is because of being on early. However, it hasn't happened every day that I've been on right at 10. :confused3

I'd like to know how anyone ever scores in the top 10 on the jungle cruise - unless they go there 1st thing! Usually the high scores are 30k or 40k plus & I don't think I've even beaten 20k! I've figured out which animals net you the highest points & which ones to skip (saving film for later) but so far nothing.

Now I have a question....
I was playing on Thurs AM when I suddenly lost my Internet connection...completely. Turns out my firewall shut me down as I'd gotten a virus. It was one of those Bagle jobs, but even when I cleaned it McAfee, Norton & AVG couldn't find any others. I finally found AVPersonal which found mutliple "Trojans" on the system.

The odd thing is that they were in files with names like "disney.pirates.exe" "disney.smallworld.exe" and "disney.wishuponastar.exe" or something like that. At the time, the only open windows were VMK and www.vmkforums.com I've noticed nothing over there about people getting hit with viruses. Has anyone here had a problem?

Maleficent2

My sister (mssocks) told me you posted this. As soon as DH gets home with the jump drive I'm going to try killbox. He worked on the computer at work & was only able to ID the problem virus with a German anti-virus program.

He also read me the wrong file names. I'm going to update them in case anyone else is having trouble.

The virus was identified as TR/Dldr.Kleenval.B.2
Infected/added files:
disneypirates.exe
disneysitsasmalldt.exe
onceuponadream.exe
giggling_mickey.exe

You can see why I have questions about where this came from. :(

Thanks for the good wishes! I'm working hard on finishing the game layout.

That being said - I'm a tad annoyed. It seems VMK is just like real life. You turn your back and prices go up and value goes down! Last night I bought the extra film. It was always 10 pictures and the camera came with five. I think the prices were 150 for the camera and 100 for the extra films. Well I only got 5 pictures and it cost me 200! The graphic most definitely said 10 pictures. I sent a note to the help people - today the graphic is changed to 200 for 5 pictures and the camera only comes with three! What's up with that? AND AND!!! I had fifty credits when I shut down and had zero when I logged in. I smell a rat! ( no offense Mickey ) I don't think they should reduce the quantity of film when not all the hidden mickeys are working. I spent 400 tonight trying to finish the last few and they didn't count. Came up as errors.
And while I'm on a roll. What's up with the Jungle Cruise? Sometimes the boat comes in so slow that you lose 20 seconds of gas before you get control, then the animals poof in and out and don't even show up. I don't think the gas count should start until you have control of the boat. True confessions here - I can't tell you how many pics of the gas cans and film I've taken during the ride. :blush: :rolleyes: I will never have a high score. Unless someone else drives! pirate:

No anti-virus software known to man (or at least in this household) sees a virus on the sytsem anymore. However, the firewall is still blocking ALL Internet access - which is a good thing! You should see the list of inbound events...30 to 50 per minute! (I was trying it with the computer on the network but not connected to the DSL modem.)

I was finishing a backup that was interrupted - but put all the files on my old laptop figuring if the virus got transferred I wouldn't contaminate every system in the house! Unfortunately, the system was too old & the hard drive just died...completely. I'm going to try one more time with the backup. There are files I really don't want to lose! :headache:

Thanks for asking. I can't wait to get back into the game! :goodvibes

I finally figured out how to name my room -- got to play a bit with the kids around --- isn't this basically a glorified chat room??? First place I went in the game was onto Main Street and there was a boy and girl facing each other on the corner - saying stuff to each other like don't you think I'm pretty, I'm the one for you crappola --- real turn off for me as a parent -- my kids (8 and 6) liked the concept of a video game and the hidden mickeys, etc., etc....but I think it's a little spooky to be "talking" to people you don't know -- even the profile of the person is weird -- like "I am princess babi" -- I don't know about anyone else but I don't see how "chatting" and putting somewhat inappropriate stuff into a profile or a one-liner is disney-like... kinda scary for the kiddies... :sad2:

I think I read a post by Yavn that said that VMK was designed for for high speed interent, not dial-up. I can't imagine playing the game on dial-up, it get slow sometimes with DSL.

I saw the same cereal but none of the VMK and darn it every store I went to had these three cereals on sale one store had them buy 1 get one free!!!!

ARGGG

yes Yavn said that but it is still not fair. If coke music can run well on dial up and VMK is just about the same as Coke Music it should be able to also.

And besides I don't know many 8 year olds that will be able to get these really high scores in these games anyway even on a high speed connection unless it really does make that big a difference...and that is the target age 8-14.

Thanks for the code. I used it and got a pin. Do you know if the pin does anything? If so, how do you use it? Thanks! :)

Mal - if you don't want to spend the time and extra credits to get all the mickeys I have an extra gold mickey you can have. Just let me know. We can meet somewhere and become friends. I am on as SleepySith right now. Or ask piratesmate - she has my login and will give it to you. the gold mickey, not my login ;)

I feel your pain about the Mickey. My Quest book says I have all the Mickeys, but I never got the credits or the Gold Oswald. I reported the problem and still nothing. :guilty:

I was having the same problem with 3 of the mickeys and recently I was able to go in my catalog and delete all occurances of the ones that vmk was not recognizing I took and then I re-took them and it worked. The gold mickey only showed up on one of the three that I re-took but it worked. I got the pin and credits. Maybe the fixed something.

Just don't admit anything like this in-game -- they've posted in the game rules that this is grounds for banning (unless one of you is the other's parent, I guess).
