View Full Version : Dumb VMK tricks

Here's a new thread dedicated to sharing silly things you can do in VMK, at least until the developers fix the glitches that allow them to happen.

My contributions:

Edited: this display glitch, sadly, has been fixed - My arms, my arms! Where are my arms?!?
- activate Dance while sitting, and your arms will disappear

And now my legs are gone!
- a number of chairs / chests / Nemo's piano will result in bizarre display glitches when you sit in them

Pixie dust (to my knowledge, first described by MrGenie)
- to surround yourself in a halo of sparkles, switch clothes while pirate costume magic is in effect
- follow these steps for best efficiency:
1) open your clothing change menu (shirt button)
2) change something subtle in your clothing, like black to grey shoes, but do NOT click OK
3) click the magic wand, and double-click the Pirate costume magic pin
4) as soon as the magic activates, click the OK to change your clothing
5) if you do it fast enough, nobody will notice the pirate costume, and you'll look like you've got pixie dust :wizard: :wizard:

You can't find me!
- there are plenty of places where you can hide in a room, to listen in on others, and to have your ghostly disembodied voice float out from nowhere
- favorites:
1) Central plaza: behind popcorn machine, trees, lower right, upper right
2) Banquet hall: behind pillars
3) Snow White's Hide+Seek forest: behind trees

Anyone else want to share their dumb VMK tricks?

No problem! My goal is to spread the silliness. Some people are way to serious about "getting all the kewl items" and need to just be ridiculous sometimes.

Don't try this at home
- stack up lots and lots of crates in your room, put a chair or teleporter on top, and zip up and down them in a bizarre display of anti-gravity

Last night MissBelle, Vellamint, Kevinop and I were table dancing in Vellamint's room. :cool1: I really thought we were in trouble when VMK_KittyCat showed up, lol. :rolleyes1

To get on a table, move a chair on top then sit in it. When the chair is romoved, dance away.

Not to put a damper on things, but don't make suggestive comments while "table dancing." I heard people got warned after doing that.

But I really like the tip on how to table dance! Have to try it sometime. This would probably work starting off with a chair on top of a tower of crates, right?

Edited to add: Confirmed, you can dance on a tower of crates this way!

Thanks!

Learn new dumb tricks every day. The other day, someone shared these with me, both in Snow White's hide and seek forest:

Timmy's fallen in the water hole!
- hide behind a tree above the well, and talk as if you've fallen in
- 'Help! Help! I've fallen in the well..' (you wouldn't believe the number of people who asked, "Did you really fall in? How do we get you out?")

I'm going to jump!!
- walk on the path behind the cottage so it looks like you're standing on top of the roof

Not a dumb trick, but enough people have asked how.. (same Hide and Seek room)
To get to the upper ledge
- you take the left-most tunnel entrance
- the trick is that you can't click while the green "go circle" is showing
- position your pointer as far in the left tunnel entrance as you can and still get the green circle; then move the pointer up just high enough to make the green circle go away -- that's your click point to get to the top ledge

Face painting at VMK
- stand just the right distance below some unsuspecting person, then activate an emote, which if done right will go right over your victim's face
- beware Disneyholic; if she is in the room, no one is safe...

If you use your 'buried in treasure' magic just as your turn at the Music Game 'turntable' is ending - you and your treasure move as one! This also works for 'cursed storm' and Kinda looks cool...like the storm is moving you along.

Then when someone new enters the screen, say something about loving riding on the boat, or what a FUN boat ride....

That last post reminded me...*confession time* :rolleyes1

I went into Star Traders, saw a lot of guest players that were new so I walked into the pod thing at middle of room, clicked on ghost magic to glow and immediately switched to different room (hehehe) so it looked like I had been teleported out of there. I went back a minute later and several of the guests were wandering in and out of the pod trying to make it work. :teleport:

(* Evil Laugh *) I saw something similar - someone with a Buried in Treasure pin typed "BlingBling" in the text field to activate their magic. Afterwards, I saw several newbies typing the same thing hoping for the effect (they didn't have the pin) :sad2:

Souvenir face painting

It is with great trepidation and likely against all better judgment that I share DoomCookie's discovery with you all...

- when an emote is painted onto an unsuspecting person's face, the in-game VMK camera is able to capture the special moment

- this photo can then be posted into your in-game photo album, or even displayed proudly on your wall

(- currently, be careful posting it on your wall: a bug in the came makes it NOT possible to remove photos stuck on walls, so don't put it up unless you don't mind it being up permanently, at least for now)

Now, beware the DoomCookie and Disneyholic. Just when you thought it was safe... Let the games begin...

you can hide behind the top part and keep asking how to get in or ids there a way in from here

I haven't confirmed these (and I'm not sure I even understand them), but will post them in part to shamelessly bump the thread.

=====

Thank you to BubbasFriend who taught me the very fun trick of putting a chair on a bunch of crates. Thanks also for showing me around. I don't know how to post pictures, but I changed my avatar so you can see me headless as I go up to the chair.

Also, while I was showing my daughter and niece the game, we discovered that if you stand in the dungeon and try to get the dragon to breathe fire on you, the program automatically moves you out of the way.

Is there anything else fun like that in the game?

Fun and silly things like that are exactly what I think would be neat to include in this thread :)

=====

I was trying to get the dragon to toast me (which you can't say by the way)
At the end of the day I like to get on the monorail let the game close and after a minute passes when the park closes click ok. Your still there riding the monorail. Of course you can't do anything on the train but I'm right now still on the train. Haven't figured out the method for pictures on this site (I Know the thread) or I would post picture

got2travel
07-20-2005, 01:48 PM
I would think the monorail thing would work. Last night I kept dancing in disneyholic's room even after the game closed. I just never clicked Ok after the message telling me the game was closed. The dialog kept scrolling and I kept dancing, but couldn't move anywhere or say anything. But I did get last word in!!!

Thanks so much for all the tricks.

Just one question. I missed the explanation of the "pretty birdie" trick in the room last night. Is that similar to the Pixie Dust?

If you go to my room, or any room that has a chair stacked on top of crates, sit in the chair. I just happened to take a screen shot when you could only see my feet sticking out of the stack of crates. You can come to my room to see it. The room is called DizzyMulan's Evil Hide Out.

I have a couple "funnies" to add:

In the TikiTiki room (is that what it's called?) You can completely hide behind the tiki hut-at least two people that I know of.

Also, you can put chairs on top of the bubbling cauldron...then remove chair, stand, and do inferno magic!! Quite a sight. :)

Another fun thing is that when someone is sitting in a chair, you can spin it-thus creating your own spinning teacup ride (I'm not sure if the actual teacups work or not, but most other things, including the saucers work).

I'm sure I'll come up with more, I like finding silly tricks!

A friend did this to me while playing falling chairs, I was in a barrel. It was really funny.

I don't know if this is considered a Dumb Trick or just Dumb Me for having never noticed it before, but the bar in Golden Horseshoe is open. You can walk around behind it and serve sarsaparilla, although you can't say it. To get behind it you must use the Random Blind Clicking Method, sort of like the popcorn machine or the Hide and Seek Forest second floor. Very useful information that will enrich everyone's lives to no end...

Re-post from HollyJoy's separate thread, to keep one complete list of tricks:

Okay, you can now make a clone of yourself! Go to Central Plaza, and find a spot to park yourself. Use your pirate magic pin, and while it's going, reenter the room. You will only see one of yourself, but others will see a double! lol

Thanks to CL_wdwlover for showing me this!

08-01-2005, 02:54 AM
I have a couple tricks to share that work if you have a teleporter pin. One is to tell everyone there is a hidden teleporter (perhaps behind a tree or something), use the teleporter magic, then exit the room. I haven't tried it yet, but heard it from a friend. Reenter the room and watch everyone trying to find it. (besides, there is a real bug that causes the train teleporter to become invisible in some rooms - I have seen it). For further effect, take off the pin before you re-enter the room, in case anyone checks.

Second, but more tame, is the change seats teleportation that works only in areas of the game that have the red "sit" circle. From sitting in one seat, activate the teleportation to sit in another.

Sundowner76
08-01-2005, 02:56 AM
Oh, forgot to say that the seat teleportation is especially nice when coordinated with others that have the pin. Have at least one empty seat and make sure each person moves to the next available seat - reminiscent of the Mad Hatter's tea party - Moooove down, move down!

sonicgirl
08-21-2005, 07:52 PM
Another thing that might be funny, is if you stand next to the dragon and make it look like he is breathing fire on you. Then you can turn on dancing inferno. Sadly, I dont have dancing inferno so i dont know if it will work. :confused3

09-30-2005, 03:55 PM
ok this is a great tip for when your vmk crashes. ok say your talking to someone on vmk ( were else?) and all of a sudden BOOM!!!!!!!! vmk crashes on you! dont click ok! just type some thing like "i'll brb" or "i need to log of vmk for a little" then you log of and come back on. you may not be able to see what you say but at least they can! :cool1: i hope my tip works for you!! :cool1: lol they work for me! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :love:

When you first start a Jungle Cruise game, Go to the very end of the dock (The place with the two boxes). If you press over and back enough, You can get your boat on the dock (Which causes your boat to go on top of the two boxes). It looks really funny. (I found this out while on-purposely crashing my boat to get points today lol) :teeth:

Cool stuff. I've actually done some of these things before I even read this thread. :rotfl:

SNOWMAN MAGIC TRICK
1)You activate snowman magic and dance for a couple seconds
2)Then you stop dancing before you stop with the snowman magic
3)In the end your head is normally down by your legs

CURSED STORM MAGIC TRICK
1)You activate cursed storm and dance two times or four time and then in the end you are all messed up

BURRIED IN TREASURE MAGIC TRICK
1)You activate burried in treasure magic
2)Then you dance for a couple seconds and then stop before the magic is over
3)The effect is small but when you say one word afterwords your mouth is pushed up where your nose would be

i learned the snowman magic one on my own when i was trying to figure out tricks. :cool1:

This might just be a temporary glitch but tonight if you put on the blue hong Kong Disneyland shirt and stood straight forward looking back at yourself, it looked as if you were wearing a baseball jersey. Even Ranch was impressed lol. A friend of mine actually showed it to me first so I can't really take the credit. I took a VMK photo but forgot to take a screen shot. Hope it does it again tomorrow.
