    Sad No more trading anything won through outside games

    Looks like they finally are doing something about the use of code snatching programs that people use in the outside games.

    None of this stuff is tradeable now: that includes narnia and monsters teleporters, diving suit, pirate ship pieces, dead man's chests, skeleton monkeys, POTC posters, and JACK SPARROW outfit pieces!
    (so far the space suit is still tradeable)

    What a bummer. Well, at least this will keep that guy (nikolauspetro) from selling all the sparrow costumes on ebay- he's sold one every few days since the game went live, so he must have a good program for downloading codes and entering them into his character without getting caught.

    On dis I read that people lent their friends and one kid lent his mother a sparrow hat and he can;t get it back now. I think it's unfair to us.

    One of life's ugly lessons is that it only takes one person to ruin it for the rest of us.

    Sounds like a plot to sell more ride teleporters if you cannot trade doors to link to friends rooms...

    Guess what the no pink doors for trades mean?
    We have to get gold doors or buy teleporters to link to the VMK Mice Chat portal!

    Re: No more trading anything won through outside games

    I'm not really sure how this solves the problem, though. The Jack Sparrow Suit (and all the other stuff) comes as a code that is still easily tradeable or sellable when first acquired. None of these items come to you as "items," they come as codes.

    OK... now, once you've entered the code you can't trade. Just don't enter the code. Sell it on eBay.

    Is it possible that this is more oriented to keeping people from acquiring, say, 500 pairs of Pink Doors... overloading the game... and running the codes out before everyone has a chance. Maybe Kellogs really wanted to keep their promotion going for a few more months, but we "pirate pigs" ran out the codes too early.

    I know their are a ton of possible combinations of numbers and letters to create codes, but only so many can be alloted to any given item. Once this allotment is out... it's done.

    As long as there is a valuable code to be gotten, there will be those who will hack out as many as they can. They're not concerned with trading the items... they're only interested in trading and/or selling the codes.

    You don't know that you've won the sparrow outfit until you enter the code into vmk- by then it's too late to sell or trade it, so no more selling sparrow outfits on ebay.

    Re: No more trading anything won through outside games

    Yes, you are absolutely right. I didn't think of that. With the pink doors, Kellog's pirate stuff, etc. you would know what the code will give you.

    So... VMK made a little mistake when they designed the new game that gives the Sparrow suit. A few hackers figured out how to exploit that mistake. Everyone in VMK, including the fair and honest players pay for that mistake.
