Bug Reports

Consider this an open thread for bug reports in any HeroMachine version. Please note which version it is you're seeing the bug in when you post. Thanks!

Here's a list regarding HM2.5's latest expansion pack release from one of the extremely kind folks on the HM Yahoo Group:

01 - lefthand/righthand > polearms 7 of 14 polearm poles do not fill as anticipated (transparent gaps) lefthand is more consistenent, but happens to righthand sometimes (erk?)

02 - Lefthand item load bug still present in UGO's hosted HM ( http://www.heromachine.com/patches.php implies UGO's version needs something on the hosted side ) ( impacts the HM `Sample' pre-gen characters, too )


01 -m1/f1/m2 > headgear > expansion1 > devil horns No working/selectable

02 - f1 > neckwear > expansion1 > necktowel Selectable, but appears oddly in the scrollable tool selection area

03 - m1 > beard > expansion1 5/14 not selectable (that last five items)

04 - f1/m2 > masks > expansion1 has 14 masks m1 > masks > expansion1 has 10 masks

05 - f1 > rightfoot > expansion1 has 14 items m1 > rightfoot > expansion1 has 23 items

06 - f1/m2 > hair > expansion1 > froTail - m1 does not have froTail

07 - When expansion1 items are selected in valid poses (m1/f1/m2) and another poses is selected (m3/f2/f3) "hilarity" ensues. Micro-sized poses off canvas poses, etc.

08 - m1/f1/m2 > righthand/lefthand > expansion1, cannot select flamethrower coil (flamethrower gun is okay)

09 - m1/f1/m2 > lefthand > expansion1 > Minigun cannot be selected, m1/f1/m2 > righthand > expansion1 > Minigun no present

10 - m1/f1/m2 > expansion1 > Lasso on lefthand only (righthand lasso is gray)

11- m1/f1/m2 > righthand > expansion1 > shield #1 of the 17 shield "screen" selects `hand with matchbook' instead

12 - righthand > expansion1 > `shield screen' has 17 items lefthand > expansion1 > `shield screen' has 15 items

13 - m1/f1/m2 > righthand > expansion1 > African tribal shield (only)

14 - Baffled at the image-to-name matches for insignia > expansion1

15 - m1 > eyes > expansion1, has 15 eyes f1/m2 > eyes > expansion1, has 17 eyes; Thus, symetric1 and symetric2 are missing from m1


01 - righthand/lefthand > expansion1 Too many screens > 10 in all items get `lost' in the shuffle

02 - When any m1 > pants > expansion1 is selected, one cannot select the pants item in the canvas area. Other m1 > pants > standard, m1 > pants > monsters, m1 > pants > dresses are selected as anticipated.

Pardon me if this has been mentioned before, but: With Expansion1 footwear, if you select "Keep items matched", and start with the Left Foot, you're fine... But, if you start with the Right Foot, it picks the equivalent item from "Standard", which kind of defeats the purpose!

    The expansion male skin right ear needs to be fixed. There is a big hole when you use it with some hair. It looks like the poor chap got his ear biten off.

  2. Paul says:

    Also the new mace in the Expansion left hand weapons doesn’t ahve a handle when you select it.

  3. Timothy says:

    The female versions of the new eyes don’t have eyelashes. They’re the same as the male versions. Thought you should know.

  4. Timothy says:

    Additionally, said eyes are not available on the male build and neither are the new hair options. 😀

  5. franck says:

    I find in companion/expansion1 / sci-fi girl you can have only by the random and also in back/expansion1 / a gun in his scabbard

  6. Jeff Hebert says:

    That’s an easter egg, Franck! Or, um … a feature? Ok, ok, it’s a bug. Thanks for reporting it!

  7. Jeff says:

    I have a companion piece to # 2on the usability. The same thing happens if you try to select an expansion overshirt in the canvas area.

  8. Jeff says:

    I have two bugs to report about the atheletic female build

    1. The new Headgear, i think its called firestorm (the camo hood with leaves on it), is not aligned right with the head

    2. The left ear is missing in all of the expansion skins. If you put certain headgears on like the expansion one called cowgirl you can see it.

  9. Jeff says:

    Another one. If you try to select masks1 under headgear for the female dwarf nothing appears in the preview window.

  10. Jeff says:

    If you select either of the first two choices in standard headgear for the athletic male you can not click on it in the canvas area. I checked all other poses except for female brick and atheltic male is the only one with this problem.

  11. deathblade says:

    The chaingun in Left and Right arm Expansion 1 2nd page doesn’t work. I have tried everything I can think of, if you have any suggestions, please tell me!

  12. Yalborap says:

    The left foot expansion1 items on the female Brick aren’t there.

  13. Scorpidius says:


    There are a couple of overshirts in the expansion section that do not line up with the M1 expansion body correctly, (you can see the body over the lines of the shirt).

    Great news on the final version being so close! Will this also include the use of more than one overshirt and coat?


  14. Kaldath says:

    The Brick Male and Female Robotic Expansion Skins both can only have one Color selected where as the Robotic Skins for the rest of the posses are two colors

  15. Kaldath says:

    Female Brick Headgear Mask1 doesn’t load

  16. Kaldath says:

    The Female Brick Left Glove Expansion Items are not working

  17. Kaldath says:

    Female Brick, Right Hand Expansion 1 the skull staff is lined up so that the skull does not appear on Canvas but disappears off the edge of the page instead

  18. Kaldath says:

    Female Brick, Lefthand Expansion 1 a large number of the left hand expansion items are not selectable

  19. Kaldath says:

    Male Brick Headgear Mask 1 Not loading

  20. Kaldath says:

    Male Brick Neckwear Shoulder Items Not available for use

  21. Kaldath says:

    Male Brick Background, Photos all the Photo Backgrounds are super Small and only fill in the top left hand corner of the canvas

  22. James Land says:

    I’m not sure about the item’s designation but I think it’s Undershirt:Expansion1,veelong. The part with the second color choice doesn’t completely fill in with the color. On the character’s left side the area stays gray.

  23. Jeff says:

    I just noticed something about one of the backgrounds. I believe its called New, chipjungle. In the lower right hand side there are two leaves that i think are on the wrong color set (color 1). If you color the ground brown then those two leaves are also colored brown. It doesn’t really look right if you color all the other leaves green.

  24. Josh says:

    The left hand does not register when loading a saved file, even with “Keep pair matched” on.

  25. Lycanthrope says:

    Miniguns still doesn’t work.

  26. the creator says:

    the handle of the right handed expansion1 AK 47 (i think it is anyway) with the males gets stuck in the arm, even when you pick the top layer

  27. Whit says:

    Something I’ve noticed with both 2.0 and 2.5 is that, if you use the Feminine sailormoon hairstyle, the buns and ribbons on the sides of the head are transparent and stay so, even when you attempt to add colour. The top of the hairstyle functions normally. Thank you.

  28. Jeff says:

    I know this is a bit late but I just noticed something. There are boots in Expansion 1 that are supposed to be a pair but look nothing alike. I believe its called banded. The 8th one on both right and left.The laces go down alot further on the left side. The soles also look different in the front. You would have to put them on a character to see what i mean.

  29. Jeff says:

    This is another one i just noticed. You can’t really use energy such as the fire, lightning,etc with the male brick. The hand is always on top of it no matter what you do.

  30. Amara says:

    I seem to be unable to click on certain areas around the ads, which keep popping up when I don’t want them to.
