WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

Now that our members have had some time to play with the new Mazin' Hamster feature and get a look at how it all works, we are getting reports of a few very specific problems that seem to be affecting all accounts.  Since this is a brand new feature to Webkinz World, it is expected that there are going to be some "bumps" along the way.  Hopefully the programmers at Ganz can use our feedback to work things out and make this part of Webkinz World even better.
 
  • Although the Webkinz Newz guide indicates that there is a Conveyor Belt Room that can be built and used in the hamster mazes, that room does not appear anywhere on the build screens.
  • Although there is an option to build the Space Coaster Room, all players who have built the room report that the room disappears after it has been used only once.  If a second or third attempt is made at building the Space Coaster Room, the hamsters will go through the motions (and time) of building it, but the room never shows up.
  • While playing in the hamster feature, a message continually appears indicating that the player has been inactive and asking the player to choose whether or not he/she would like to stay logged in.  The Webkinz World system doesn't seem to recognize using the hamster feature as being active.
  • It is possible to get logged out of Webkinz World, but remain logged in to the Mazin' Hamster feature.  If this happens, the player will get a "cannot connect to server" message when exiting the Mazin' Hamster area.  This seems to only be a problem if the player has won a trophy.  In that case, all of the completed mazes remain checked off, but the trophy does not appear in the player's dock.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

Hmm I had a few of those problems while I been playing on mazn hamster thing. I hope it gets fixed soon.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

I went shopping this weekend and came across the hampsters. To be honest, I was not a bug fan so I passed on them. Sounds like they are still working out their systems.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

I also posted a thread that I can't even get into the feature. I have cleared everything. It happens all the time, then sometime I get in. All that will happen is a blue screen with one black box. I have attached a picture.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

thanks for the info!

What browser are you using? I've heard that the Hamsters don't like FireFox.

Also, if you download the Unity Plugin before you try to go to the Hamster feature, it really speeds things up your first time in. That could be an issue too.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

that's not cool, well everything new on computers has a bug or to, i mean, it's probably no big deal.

I have this problem too - I've tried Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer and have the problem on all three. I've gotten in to play three times I think - most of the time when I try to go to the hamster section I get that blue screen with the little black box and have to log out or close the browser window entirely; or a few times I've gotten to the initial hamster screen but then have been unable to select any of the options to play (and had to close out entirely there too). The laptop I usually play on has Vista on it - haven't tried on our mac yet or on another Windows OS to see if that has anything to do with it.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

FIA, I have no idea what broser I am using. I use internet explorer.

I get stuck in the screen and have to completely log out. I down loaded the program when it was a demo.

July sorry you are having the issue, but glad it isn't just me....

The hamsters only seem to work for me ON Firefox... I get that blue screen sometimes too, very frustrating.. I just clear my cookies and log off and on a few times.. That usually does the trick! My daughter said that she even got it to work on Explorer.. We have all the trophies so far...

The glitch that keeps happening to us is: When we first enter a maze, we can't turn the hamster.. We just quit the maze and enter again, then it is fine..

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

:gr::chi: i hope they get it fixed!

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

I never got a Mazi'n Hamster (It's not out yet), so when i get it in the future i enter the code stuff like that, will it work for Internet Explorer 9? It seemed to work fine on the Demo. It didn't get slow on it. Thanks for this info.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

The problem we are having is the colors to the backgrounds are flashing on and off. Anyone eles have this problem? I was thinking of deleting the unity player and then try downloading it again.

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

Oh, blitherated beetles! This is terrible! I hope they fix it soon! They'd better. . .

P.S. Yeah, I'm Lord of the Rings crazy.

P.P.S. If they don't fix it, I'll write them a semi-nasty letter! Take that, Ganz!

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

Here is what I have experienced (I also added this to the glitch report):

The space coaster did show up on my account and I didn't get a chance to put it in a maze yet. I then built the wind tunnel (which was the 23rd room-type I built) and then the space coaster disappeared. (I NEVER put the space coaster in a maze and it still disappeared.) I also tried building it 2 more times and it still didn't show up.

Here is what I have noticed: If you build rooms and it adds the room-type to the room tab, then you are okay and your rooms don't disappear until the scroll bar shows up and you build an odd-number room type. For example, I built 20 room-types and all of the rooms showed up. I built 21, then that one didn't show up until I build 22. Once I build 22, then 21 and 22 showed up. I then went on to build the 23rd and then that one showed up in the middle of the room types and the space coaster (which was at the bottom of the room types) fell off of the scroll bar list! I think if there were 24 room types and I built the 24th then both my space coaster and the new room type would show up

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

Awww! I hope they get that fixed soon! It looks so cool!

Re: WI Members Report Issues With Mazin' Hamster Feature

The third one keeps happening to me! I'm glad it's being taken care of, and I hope it's fixed soon.
