EXTRA SECTION: Uber Tamagotchi hax!
Debug mode is a leftover from the development stage of your Tamagotchi product! Debug mode allows a tester who works for BanDai to check the code for the Tamagotchi and report any bugs before Tamagotchi hits shelves. Different characters can be tested individually without the need to raise the Tamagotchi to get the character. It also has a special "Hypertime" mode, which speeds up the clock. Anyway, less trivia and more instructions!
First, you are going to want to secure a spare Tamagotchi Connection, or take one you don't care for. and prepare for the operation. Find a set of precision screwdrivers, they are usually in colorful plastic boxes, and easy to spot. Next, find a safe container for the small and easy to lose screws that you will be removing from the unit. Unscrew the big screw on the battery cover in the back and remove the battery. After that, locate and unscrew the four small screws from the back, placing them in your safe place along with the red infrared cover. Now you should have the board exposed. Try not to twist the back of the shell much, as you may tear the buzzer wires and lose sound. Locate a pair of small silver semicircles on the board near the lower left of the battery contacts. Scratch these semicircles gently and carefully with a sharp #2 pencil. Push the shell back together with the battery in place to see if you did it right. you should be able to select you character with the A button when it hatches. If it does work, make sure to get the IR cover and reset button in place, and reassemble it. If it doesn't, scratch the semicircles until it does.
A: Scroll through Tamagotchi species on the screen that shows you what you get from the initial egg.
B: Select. Nothing new with this button, really.
C: When no icons are selected, begins the "Hypertime" mode mentioned above, which lasts until the next major event (Pooping, no hearts filled, requesting attention, the Matchmaker's appearance, evolution, etc.).
Now you have a debugged Tamagotchi! Show your uber Nazotchi to your friends!
But wait, did you get tired of debug mode already? All you have to do is follow the above instructions, and erase the panels instead of scratching them. You Tamagotchi will resume normal operation.
ROM Test Mode
I honestly don't know how it works yet, but someone will tell soon, right?
I got more help now, thanks people! Hopefully, with some help, we will have a comprehensive and useful guide for Tamagotchi Connection owners worldwide!
