How to fake the second player with kinect

Hi, sometimes there are achievements that need to players to do it. Instead of doing it online with random players makes it hard or time consuming, I could fake by myself a second player on kinect. Has anyone have a clue how to do so?

Blow up sex dolls might do the trick.

My mate stands next to a mirror and it sometimes signs in a second player if that helps.

EDIT: I'd like to point out that it's an accident when this happens, he's not a loner.

I hung a shirt with a coat hanger over an unplugged lamp post and a stuffed animal in the head hole. It picked it up as a second player.

This thread does nothing to dismiss the whole "lonely gamer" thing..

I kid, but I chuckled at some of the ways you guys are going about getting a 2nd player.

not gonna lie, if i had kinect, id probably resort to this too. But i hate kinect, therefore it is not needed. i do use a second controller from time to time though. Ex: Aegis wing ace achuevement.

That is legendary! I'm glad technology is still just flawed enough to allow us to bend the rules

Haha, I'm glad you guys like him. He is made up of a microphone stand, SES uniform and a hat. The hat isn't completely necessary, but I like the way it looks. The caption is kind of funny, "You're on fire" both because of his colour and the fact that he did not move at all.

The video sounds like a cool idea, if I get around to playing the game again, I'll bring Bob out of retirement.

You know those annoying people that walk across your screen when you are trying to play? Well my aunt did this and I got an achievement in Kinect adventures. So play kinect when people are over and wait for them to walk infront.

Its impractical - but the idea of using one of those inflatable flailing arm tube men is a highly amusing thought heh - wonder how the game(s) would react!

Well I just discovered that a Christmas tree works, Kinect identified the branches as limbs. It was enough to cause my in-game movements to be jerky and unresponsive, since it tried to pick up both me and the tree. And for the record I just have one of those small synthetic 5-footer trees, not a full size thing.

So that's another option to explore if you ever need to fake a second person.

I had this happen for Kinect Fun Labs: Musical Feet. I don't remember what the achievement was for but I was messing around with the keyboard and a friend walked out in front of me and it unlocked a two player achievement.

I've never played any long Kinect games that require two players, so since I've only played those Kinect Fun Labs games I can usually just get a friend to spend five seconds helping me out.

I used 2-meter "stick" and taped a shorter stick to it, so it look like a cross, then I dressed it with a t-shirt. Works with some games at least. I think I have used a chair with a t-shirt also.
