And no, I'm not referring to the second-most addicting Flash game in the world. I'm referring to the second flying glitch on Poptropica -- and this one works on the modern islands! To recap, the first one was using the Back Lot Island promo clapboard item, pictured right. By clicking and holding the mouse above your Poptropican's head and repeatedly clicking the SPACEBAR, you could fly as high as you wanted!
Now, a similar glitch is back, but on the modern islands! With any card that has a special action that only works on the ground, you can fly again (albeit more awkwardly). The Back Lot clapboard will work, or the Virus Hunter sneezing powder, or non-Members can try the fish from the Hammerhead Shark costume.
Modern Island instructions: Equip the special-action item, then jump in the desired flying direction and repeatedly hit the spacebar. You'll slide in that direction horizontally across the scene. Keep the mouse button pressed while momentarily releasing the spacebar and you can gain altitude/change direction. It's very awkward, but it's the only thing we've got. And it works on hundreds of items!
Challenge: Post a link to a picture of your Poptropican in the exact place as these pictured in the comments! Harder than you'd think, even with the glitch. Trick: You can talk to the conspiracy theorist on Virus Hunter without getting the Resistance Band with this.
Survival episode 3 is playable for Members and Survival episode 2 is open for all starting today. I got #221... shame on me, I know, but I was at school when it released. The video guide is here, and the written guide is complete.

Guess what? My wish came true, the lagging bug has stopped! You know the problem where if you clicked outside Poptropica's screen rectangle it would get super jumpy and slow? No more of that. Hurray!
Now only two more left: making feet tilt on tilted platforms and bringing the classic Poptropican "pushing against a wall" animation back instead of the weird body shuffling.
