  2. YALL

    IT'S FINALLY HAPPENED

    ON THE 18TH GEN

    I LEFT MY TAMA UNATTENDED (bc i was at school :P)

    AND-

    I CAME HOME TO SEE IT DEAD.

    welp, it was already kinda neglected, but i cured its sickness in the morning before i went to school 😕

    oh well, back to square one :')

      Why didn't you just leave it at its parents' house for free babysitting? :huh:

  3. I broke out my old Windows 98 laptop because I had a copy of WinTama, and man is it bad (full post coming soon!)

      I'm looking forward to reading about that - there's a certain charm about the oddball conversions that Bandai licensed back then! :D

      Some folks build them from scratch, too, picking exactly what type of switches they want (often defined by the colour-coding used by the Cherry brand, though other brands are used), all the way down to choosing what firmware to flash to the embedded microcontroller!

  5. How famitama adventures are currently going:

    famitama uses hiragana ଘ(੭ˊ꒳ˋ)੭✧
    famitama uses KATAKANA WHICH I CANNOT READ YET (ง°̀ロ°́)ง

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      Hiragana and katakana are both really simple to learn, especially if you can find educational materials that provide easy to remember things to associate with the symbols and their sounds. :) For example, "レ" (katakana "re") is an easy one to memorise because it looks kind of like a razor, and the first syllable of "razor" is similar to the sound of "re".

      Still, which Digimon are you getting?

  7. ok anyone know how to actually upload photos here? anytime i try now, my files are either too big, or the pics dont show up to anyone else. i swear i used to be able to post things easily years ago but now i dont know RIP 

    1. Penguin-keeper

      My understanding is that each user is allotted a certain amount of space for uploading pictures. This is because bandwidth costs our lovely Admin money, and pictures use more bandwidth than text. Aside from uploading your avatar and profile banner here, it's better to use an outside image-hosting service, accordingly.

      Myself, I use Imgur, which does not require an account, and which provides the necessary BBCode to copy and paste straight into your posts here. Other users may have other recommendations to give you. :)

  8. hey, quick question that i don't think warrants a topic, uh. are rechargeable batteries ok with tamas?

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      My understanding is that it can depend on the model. For example, the Meets won't always behave correctly with rechargeables because the voltage drops off too soon and it wasn't designed to handle that, but its Western version, the On, can use them.

      I would hope that Bandai keeps that in mind moving forward. :)

  9. nothing is worse than buying an expensive tama and then later seeing an ebay listing for it being half the price. might not get the pix at full price (as much as i want it), I think i might just wait until a while after it's release to see if i can get a deal on any used ones. 

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      I see what you mean! The Amazon UK listing for the Pix states that the price is £72! :o That's only slightly less than what it costs to import a Meets or an On!

  10. I lost my hello kitty tamagotchi any suggestions?

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      Any suggestions that could be made depend on where you think you lost it! ;)

      If you think that it's somewhere at home, then listening out for beeping is a good idea. However, if it's been lost elsewhere then you're probably out of luck, unfortunately. :(

  11. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! I don't believe it! I found a Japanese Tamagotchi Ocean for 82 USD and just jumped on it!!!! Sooooo happy to finally get my hands on one of these!!! xD

  12. HI! i am 10 and i own a tamagotchi and i need help caring for it. i would really appreciate it if you would follow me!. Be safe and have a good day.(:

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Since forums aren't social-media platforms, "follows" don't really mean a whole lot. ;) You'll be able to find the assistance that you need in the "Help For Tamagotchi Owners" section of the forum!

  13. I'm new to tama talk but I want to help everyone as much as I can. So can you please follow me.

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      Don't worry - this isn't a social-media platform, so "follows" don't really count for anything. ;) Just participate and do your best out on the forums. :)

  14. Im really annoyed, my pacman tamagotchi keeps randomly resetting. I unscrewed it and removed the batteries and put them back again to see if that would fix it. I sure hope it works

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      I've seen other users here report the same problem - the problem is that the backs of some units (not just the battery-door) aren't fitted tightly enough.

      The same users reported that taking the unit apart and then screwing it back together tightly fixed the issue for them.

  17. I've just found that out of curiosity. I wonder if it might be an early patent for the Osutchi/Mesutchi Tamagotchis
    https://patents.google.com/patent/JPH10235019A/en?q=tamagotchi&oq=tamagotchi&sort=old

    1. Penguin-keeper

      Penguin-keeper

      They did! :) Off of the top of my head, I can immediately think of the Funbbit (mentioned here), which could connect to a Walkman music-player, and for all I know there may have been others that more thoroughly used the elements from this patent, too. (I also wonder if some of this might've gone into the PocketStation, which was Sony's Japan-only knock-off of the Sega Dreamcast's Visual Memory Unit.)

      Given that this is from Sony, and mentions prior art from Bandai, I'm guessing that this might instead be related to the virtual pets that Sony themselves released. ;)

  19. i got really into watching doraemon this year, its such a nice n funny anime. tho it made me REALLY want to buy the doraemon tamagotchi from the 90s, unfortunately its out of my budget but one day i hope i can buy it. also since tamagotchi is doing a bunch of crossover versions now, why dont they make a remake of the doraemon tamagotchi??? i'd be so down for that

    1. Penguin-keeper

      I'm a fan of Doraemon too (I have been ever since being introduced to the franchise via coverage of his first Nintendo 64 game back in the late 1990s), and I feel that the sadly-short-lived English dub of the TV-show really did the series justice. :D

      Good deals do come up on the Doraemontchi from time to time (that was how I got mine earlier this year), so it's worth keeping an eye out! It was also the first version to ever get a re-release, back in the early 2000s, so there are certainly plenty to go around.
