My P's screen has started to dim again but it wasn't as bad as I originally thought. The thing making the screen seem so dark was the space design I had his house set up it. That darkened everything considerably. Once I changed the house design to lighter backgrounds the dimness is barely noticeable. The dark background made me overreact. Having Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which makes every imperfection bug me didn't help either.
Anyway, my Tama changed today. Despite trying to give him different skill points he became the blue guy with the ring around his neck once again. It seems I may be on track to either get the knight guy again or Mametchi. Good care characters though they may be, it'd be nice to get something different. I have Mametchi on my V5 currently and I had the Knight guy last generation on my P's.
Speaking of my V5 I reactivated it now that I'm more experienced with the P's. They're still the adults they were the last time I posted an update on them. I'm going to let them remain adults longer this time around. Retraining them from scratch every time they revert to infants is a pain. Even with cheats I don't really enjoy the process of getting their bonding back up to 100%.
