Thank you, Jokus. :)

 

That was pretty neat (really difficult to press all of the buttons and the reset button at once, though XD)

It tested the pixels, then did a ROM test. It said "ROM OK" which I am going to assume means it's isn't corrupted.

 

I tested the sound wires next. Poking one of the wires did make the Tamagotchi reset. It looks like it was half pulled out already.

I pulled it completely out. I'll see if I can get someone solder it back on later today.

Pulling the wire seems to have stopped the glitchy screen, which is good. (The ROM test did restart the Tamagotchi from the start, I see. No Download or Reset option, just the floaty egg that prompts me to input the time and date.)

 

I guess a faulty wire was the cause of the whole thing! I've never heard of that happening before. I learned something new today. XD

 

When I fix the wire, I think I might rejoin the hatch. :3

Glad to hear you figured it out (even if I'm too dumb to understand all the techy stuff)! It would be great to have you back in the hatch again, do you think you'll be able to get Clay back? Milo and I miss hearing about him but of course we would also be excited to welcome his "heir" if you don't manage to download Clay!

The ROM Test resets the Tamagotchi back to factory defaults, so Clay is unfortunately gone forever

 

His successor will join. :)

I'm so glad your tama was fixed, although I'm sad to hear it's resetted.

I actually learnt about the sensetive wire glitch myself two days ago, by some fault and error testing, and refusing to accept the fact that my first ever tamagotchi could be broken. But that's another story.

Anyway, I'm happy to know that we can re-join this hatch together! :D 

Then my tama won't be the only baby in comparision to everyone else's, lol. :P

That's sad about Clay -_- but I can't wait to hear about your new tama when you join again (and Jokus too)!

Rene1.jpg

 

and I'm back in the hatch! XD

 

I decided on the name "Rene" before I hatched the new egg because it is a gender neutral name and means "reborn". I think that fits quite well.

Rene is... a boy! :)

Hopefully I can make it through this time without any nasty glitch-related surprises. XD

Welcome Rene!!! That's a beautiful name and I really love the meaning behind it! Being a Twilight fan it reminds me of Bella's mum lol. Apparently Milo means "soldier", I can't picture him ever being violent though... He's too laid back! We look forward to more updates on little Rene, I've missed seeing babies in the hatch :D

Well hey guys.... Sorry I haven't been posting, read my log to find out why. I have good news and bad news.

Good news: Austin became an oldie!
Bad news: He died at age 25 -_-

Yeah, I don't know why he left me. He got sick for no reason, and after curing him, he left :(
That was the oldest age I've gotten a Tamagotchi to! A least I have that.

And, this may seem really wierd of me... But could I please join you guys again?
I'm sorry I failed. TWICE.

Hey, you didn't "fail" and it's not weird  join as many times as you like (although I hope your next tama won't die on you so you won't have to join again) :D . I'm sorry about Austin but it would be great to hear how his successor gets on!

I honestly have no time and I'm preparing a huge text for my log to explain you everything but the only thing I can tell you for the moment is that Tamfi reached the age of 28!

 

But died... It was all my fault and I have no excuses about this happening. I almost hate my self for that...

I don't know what to do... I would love to have some advice...

I have Doom [Harutchi] May's son who is now a toodler and... 

Belle a girl Puchitchi who is also toodler... She is 1yrs old and she was the one came out after Tamfi...

I coudn't stand reset it...

 

I'm sorry for Austin Kero, and I feel sad about every tama that died in this hatch and every hurted Tama Carer...

Oh my gosh no!!! You have no idea how much your post shocked me, I'm so sorry :( . Have you tried pressing the reset button then download to see if you can get him back? I know it's a slim chance but it might just work. i can't believe there's been so much tama death recently, I hope we don't have a third one any time soon. It's funny how I've sort of got attached to everyone's oldies. I hope you'll think about re-joining the hatch if you don't manage to get poor old Tamfi back.

I'm so sorry for you Kero and Maybeth...  :( That is so sad, I feel the same way Izzy feels.

I really really hope you will join us again with another tama baby.

We will feel lonely without you !

 

 

Well , La vieille Mamie as I like to call her is 53 ! She received a letter with a snake in it. Seriously, who would do that xD . So to cheer her up, I gave her french fries and soda. Not very healthy but she absolutely loved it !

Pictures will come ...one day rofl. I've been sick  this week so .. i'll post pick wheen I feel better ^^

Oh Welcome!!! We're all so glad to have more people in this hatch! Good luck with your tama!!!! :D

 

Could anyone help me make this bit of hard decision? I have four tamas currently running, which is Doom, [he is a little rude Hawainotchi!v4] ,  Belle [a beautiful young memetchiv4], Felix [the great fighter Ura-Togetchiv4.5], and Thorn [ a funny Tenpatchi!v4.5]

 

So who would you choose? I just can select one between such wonderful tamas... perhaps Belle but Doom is also cute... ooohhhh.... I miss Tamfi so much... Anyways as you guessed I'm planning to re-join but I ran out of ideas... :)

If you join with Belle you will have an Otokitchi , if you join with Doom you will have Ojitchi; I think you should choose while keeping that in mind. If you don't want one or another oldie..

I like the names Doom and Belle , they are just great !

 

 

I looked the pages 4 and 5.... That made me smile and nostalgic ^^
