v1.4002 Bug - Arnie at Arena will repeatedly take the entry fee for the same arena battle|
not sure if this has been reported elsewhere before, or whether it's already been fixed in later versions (trying to search the forums here is pretty futile, but i did not see any mention of arnie/arena when i checked the v1.4005 changelog), but regardless:
at the Arena (Great Metal Factory / 100 Rads Bar) when you talk to Arnie to pay the entry fee to begin an arena fight, if you exit the dialog after paying the entry fee but before you place a bet on your time limit, then talk to Arnie again, you can choose the dialog option to pay the entry fee for the same battle again, and he will actually take the entry fee from you again (the money will be removed from your funds), and this is repeatable as many times as you exit and choose that dialog option. clearly after you've paid the entry fee once, either the dialog option should disappear or he should say "you've already paid the entry fee, go ahead", or something to that effect.
