Close as you can get to the real thing
« on: June 11, 2008, 11:48 PM »

In case anyone has missed this this is by far the best work I have seen recreating VMK. Some of you may know GPDot From VMK He has done such an awesome job with this.  He has added All guest rooms and even lost areas of VMK (if you find the old Pirates lobby let me know) He has animated the sword and the treasure chests and Monorail. He also has all the Holiday skins. This is great!

I'm so glad you posted this Add!   :thumb:   I had seen it, and totally forgot about it.   :blush:

It's amazing ... Word of Warning ... Get your box of tissues ready.    :'(   :cry:

Thanks Adventure! 

I must of spent a good hour overnight just wandering around, both lost in memories and simply amazed at the beautiful work GPDot had done!  His personal additions are great too!

His "glove" and devotion to the game are so beautifully manifested in his work.  I do so hope, if Disney ever gets wind of it, that they have the decency to allow it to remain public.

I had honestly had no idea how much I missed the game (what with VFK and SW being on so quickly following its closure) until I saw this.

Sincere thanks to GPDot for publicizing his work! :thumbs:

I did find the old pirates lobby after about an hour looking in the obvious places ;)  The hint is you can not click on the map or any exit to get there.

I have to admit is does remind me there is no replacement for the game no matter what, the richness it provided us was unique and irreplaceable.  In part this was the Disney touch, the content and the people, our friends and staff from the game.  While in many cases we are still in touch with the people and have our pictures and memories,  It was the three combined that made it a magical place. It's a little like Frosty with no hat,  no magic - no Frosty.  The magic is missing if we all cant return together but it is wonderfull GPDot put all this time into it that we can share in revisiting VMK - as has been pointed out many of my friends have needed tissues to make this visit.

For all the hard work a special thanks to GPDot.  :yourock:

Thank you for sharing Adventure, I tried but had to give up trying to load every room I could think of for pics on the last few days (boy was that lag horrific) but the lag did give me a great opportunity to capture and animate some of the magics :)





Im lame I know LOL :lolg: but it was a cooler way to remember them than just go pop bye bye magic nver see you again. Luckily I managed to get a few other friends doing their Inferno's to animate, guess it sort of eases the blow of VMK being gone

So thanks for helping share GPDot's work, now I can pretend Im doing my magic in the rooms as I wander around an empty VMK..... Does it remind anyone of a new Beta game? wandering around lonely that is hehe

Wow, what a truly fantastic job you did putting that all together GPDot.  It feels so real.  You did a great job down to the little details. 
Boo, your magic videos are also great.  I wish I knew how to do that and was able to capture mine.  It made me smile to see them in action again. 
Thank you both for your time and sharing.

And it's absolutely amazing what you have done GPDOT.  I love it and can't wait to see what you will do for the magic. :)

If you miss DC, I can add it so it wait for 15  minutes then flashes the VMK has crashed and shuts down. Possibly have an actual count down on the Host event, then wait until you hit the room before the DC? ;)

Thank you all!

Hmm the pirates lobby again eh. I will have to have some fun there I guess. I noticed the priates game I was planning to put there will not advance past the simple level, and I don't want to alter code in their game lest I be called a pirate (sofware variety) or hacker. I will do what I can.

Thanks again.

Hey Dot, I said it to you back in the VMK days and I'll say it again, you are a genius!!!  Thank you so much for reminding me why I spent so much of my free time on VMK.  Truly a special place.

And Boo, thank you too for the amazing animation you put together to remind us of the magic!

Making my credit runs and walking through the kingdom as I type. Pulled the sword out and earned some credits in the treasure chests. Thank goodness I have this site to go back to whenever I need a visit.

Since it's been a year and still sooo miss VMK, I visited this site again http://www.gpvmk.com/



Thank you again GPDOT for allowing us the joy of visiting VMK with your wonderful work!  :bighug:

This Site has temporarily been taken down due to abuse. It will be back up later.

I am removing the video proof and the link by request of another VMK forum.
I guess there is no need to funnel you onto their site.

            After Speaking with the team working on the "PC" version, I am comfortable that we have resloved this, and that my files will not continue to be used for development of the iPhone version.

            I have two courses of action regarding GPVMK.com at this point:

               1. Put it back up, make it downloadable and close the site in six months
                  (or at least not update it for the public again)
               2. Make it in a new program and make it available with changes later.

            I would be extremely happy if Disney brought back this much beloved game.

        Thank you for understanding

        GPDOT

Well now I am glad I made a 2 hour dvd of Littlebelle on all the VMK rooms.  I never did get around to making part of of all her clothes and pics of friends.

Yep, I saw this yesterday I think.  I'll tell ya, some people just ruin a good thing!  :bm: :madder: :mad: >:[

 I so appreciated GPDOT's site and it allowed me to visit VMK.  :) I do hope GPDOT can "fix" the problem to allow his site to stay though; he has put in so much work on it.

Whoever abused GPDOT's site ruined it for alot of us.

I have to tell you all I cried like a baby  :cry: when i heard the site was down and that it was because some people abused all that he had done. It was just like the announcement of VMK closing all over again.

I didn't have the heart to tell princess and I had hoped she wouldn't see it. Every so often I catch her on gpvmk or looking at her VMK pictures- she gets really really quiet and then I see the quiet tears. What GPDOT had done and was doing at least helped princess get that VMK feeling back for a short time. Why can't disney understand what they've done? Breaking a little girls heart is not very nice!

THANK YOU GPDOT but if only...

Does anyone know if there is really going to be a "PC" version of VMK like he mentioned?

Sigh, hugs to littleprincess.  :'( :bighug:

Unfortunately, if you read in gpdot's top left corner in the blue box on his site, you'll see this message:

"Hello,

To those who still visit and still enjoy the site, I thank you.

I will be adding a download of the entire piece for you to enjoy when the site closes. I have renewed this site for another year, but anticipate it being closed in six months.

Some of you may have missed it, but I did add all of the music I have in a Downloads area. I didn't mark it on the page as something added, but trust that those of you who are adventurous enough found it.

Thank you to those who appreciate and respect this site.

GPDOT"



And the reason for this might be his last couple of paragraphs before the Big Blue Button that says to Enter.  These comments are:

 "It has been brought to my attention that different groups have been "decoding" GPVMK and using it for their new attempts at making VMK.

I am sorry to do this, but GPVMK has taken a lot of my time and effort and it is clear that it is being taken by others for use in their programs without permission. This is now the final version due to circumstances beyond my control.

Thank you.

GPDOT"



I still appreciate all he has done for us.  :bighug:

I'm just upset that whoever those few  :uhuh: are that abused it :bm: :td: -- have ruined a really good thing!

GPDOT, thank you for all you have done for us; and so sorry that your work was abused by others.

I notice that there is no date given on the post do we have any idea when it will go away, or if GPDOT is still going to have a downloadable version when it does?

I noticed there was no date but I strolled down memory lane couple nights back....sigh is right.

No idea when and if there will be a downloadable verson (other than what he had posted) I noticed it in June 09 and not sure how long his message of it leaving had been posted there.

This just in...

I emailed GPDOT and he replied as follows:

"I am waiting on an existing group to finish the final touches on their new format to set up the download, they have agreed to host the download and future versions of GPVMK. I unfortunately won’t know when they will be ready any sooner than they do.  I have made many enhancement as well as some security measures to a version that will be on the site, but not downloadable."
