Dreamweaver Easter Eggs

Not sure about anyone else, but when you use an application everyday such as Studio/Dreamweaver, typically you know the app inside and out. Apparently, I was completely wrong about that comment. I had no idea there were Easter Eggs in DWMX2004.

SAVE YOUR WORK before playing the game! I thought DW locked up only to find out DW was closing the game when I lost.

In the Property Inspector, locate the Text Color Input box and type “Dreamweaver”. You should see a little DW rune that starts to fly around the screen, but wait!! Move the mouse up and down to move the paddle on the left and hit the rune back to the other side.

Not sure if it supports 2 players though. Im also not sure how to quit the game and if you call Support, we’ll tell you we dont support the hidden gems. 😛

The other Easter Egg is to insert an image in Design view and ctrl-Double-click the image preview icon in the Property Inspector. Keep Ctrl-Double-Clicking to see more faces.

    Is this a Windows thing only? I tried it in the Mac version, and all I get is an error that tells me “Dreamweaver is not a valid color value”

  6. Yea, unfortunately, its a windows thang. If I hear of any Mac DW easter eggs, I’ll keep you informed.

    Another DW MX 2004 Easter Egg is a version of the old MasterMind computer game (I think it’s from the ancient world of DOS).
    To get to it:
    1. Click ‘Commands’ -> ‘Create Web Photo Album’
    2. For the ‘Photo album title’ type “playagame”
    3. Click ‘OK’
    If you’ve never played MasterMind (or some newer version based on the old game), instructions are available by clicking the ‘Help’ button
    Good luck,
    Ilya

    Try holding ctrl+shift and double clicking on the Site Selector dropdown in the File panel. You get two goofy looking characters!

  10. I love these easter eggs. I don’t have anything to contribute, just that I solved the mastermind computer game on my first attempt ever playing it. Go it right on the 7th row
