Re: UB Funkeys Guide - The Original Skylanders?

This is an awesome guide! I used to play U.B. Funkeys back around 2007, but after seeing this guide I got back into the game and even decided to start a YouTube series. The game is honestly great, it's a shame it's so obscure.

I used to see the commercial for these all the time as a kid. I wanted them so bad, and eventually I got a starter pack or something like that for Christmas. I eagerly plugged it into the computer ... and it didn't work. I'm still curious as to what the actual game is like since to this day I've still never played it.

Wow! Very thorough with multiple videos for the different levels. Added your link to the OP.

Unfortunately The U.B. Funkey plugin module only works with Windows XP, an issue of the driver. Maybe one day a newer driver will be found compatible with Windows 7 and possibly Windows 10? The software can be installed in Windows 7 and runs, but checks for the module plugged in. I keep my Tower PC with Windows XP Pro for programs such as this. There is a beta remake mentioned in the OP as well as a work around to play some of the mini games outside of the program.

Thru Virtual Box it might be possible to run the game thru Windows 7 and 10.

I need your help.... this is a long shot, but I have the three unreleased Funkeys, yes all three of them, and I want to have a complete set of every single available Finley, but I need help tracking down a few. I'm going to be working on putting together a Google drive that I can share where you'll be able to see each set I have and which ones I am missing. I'm not asking for free Funkeys, I'm willing to pay for them as long as they are in good condition plus the shipping costs.
