Since Dance Central 2 took a picture of it, I figured I would share my set up. Both are the same, but slightly different. The one on the left is a coat on a standing lamp with a pair of blue jeans hanging off the on'off knob. Both are still on the hanger. The one on the right (partly obsccured) works better. It is an adustable mic stand that I use for Rock Band with a jacket hanging off the top and an old pair of pyjamas hanging off the mid section. Just to be safe, I put an old stuffed animal in the jacket and hung a hat on it.

It has helped me with a number of games, though they can't replace a human player for the skill required achievements. Plus, Game Party would sign them in as me occasionally. But, since I don't like involving others in my grinding, they are a godsend.

I was actually able to trick the Kinect sensor by holding up a pillow longwise (think torso) straight out to the side. Arm was fully extended and it thought it was another person everytime.
I used this method for KinectAdventures, my boyfriend didn't want to play every level with me, so I improvised

Back when I was married, I'd use my wife. On one occasion I even had my son help me out but nowadays I have to use objects to come up with that second player.

I've played all the Fun Labs games except for Kinect Sparkler and have done all the local achievements without a second actual person. Here's what I do:

1 Computer Chair
1 Stand-up fan (a tower I guess?) OR suitcase
1 leather jacket put over the fan/suitcase to trick width or whatever with the sensor bar.

Sometimes additional items are used like a box underneath the fan or whatever, but most times I set the chair up then put the fan/suitcase on the chair with the leather jacket "worn" over top of that. I have to usually screw around a bit before it recognizes and on some weird cases I've had to be the second player while it was recognized as primary.

I've fiddled with it, gotten it to recognize and have been able to unlock pretty much any local player achievement with this. Yeah, even on I Am Super. It's tricky but with the jacket I had to flip the arms up at the same time to force the "power move" then me as the primary would interrupt for that achievement. It was also tricky to get the Musical Feet, I had to bring in an additional item (a sword stuck through the sleeves of the jacket) to trick the sensor into believing the "second player" was holding a guitar.

My Kinect picks up my tower fan whether I like it or not. I have to take it out of the room to play alone.

For the times when I can't get friends to help out I use a folding wall. Never had to put clothes on it or anything, works great for everything from kinect fun labs to dance central.

His name is B.Ob.

He's made from an empty DVD stand, a coat hanger for the neck and a baseball bat for the arms.

The only time I tried faking another player for Fruit Ninja, I used a giant plush Yoshi and shook him around until the Kinect registered it as a person. I tried the brooms with clothing before but it didn't work. 3 foot Yoshi, yeah, that has to be a person.

I had a bit of trouble at first, but turning on more lights fixed the problem.

Thanks man, I don't really have anyone around who likes to game, so rather than force them, I just built Bob. He enjoys it anyhow. With Kinect Adventures, I remember I had to stand behind him and be his hands, to select things. Whose Line is it Anyway style. Thank God no one saw me, it could have been awkward.

LOL dude that's funny.

Luckily I always have a family member that can help with the 2 player achievements. Some of these ideas are great though.

I used a poster of a person and was able to get an achievement in Once Upon A Monster... The only problem I had was the game requires both players to wave at the kinect and it was hard to reach my arm around to wave from behind the poster... My hubby did say that he will help me with some of the achievements in the future, but he doesn't like to play with the kinect because of his bad knee.

I couldn't help laughing at that, some of the things people have used to fake other players are hilarious. :P

A chair with a jacket on helps. For the head, I simply balance a tissue box on top of the chair.

Thanks for the info in this thread, it helped me to get the co-op achievements in Sesame Street. I used a long lamp stand and put a long leather jacket on it.

I found that holding a pillow out beside me worked when trying to get the achievement for having two players in Kinect Adventures. For actually playing the game, my desk chair wearing a shirt/ my desk chair with the pillow sitting on it seems to work quite well
