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.
