Name Glitch on v4?

Recommended Posts

Alright. So those who read my log know that I have a v4 Minotchi named Flame. It's a normal Tamagotchi overall, the Skittle shell design. One thing though: it changes it's name by itself!!! So one time I checked Flame's stats, and it said Dame. Then, another time, Blame. It just switches back and forth to Dame, then Blame, then Flame. You can imagine my confusion. I did buy it used from eBay, but I have also heard v4's are super glitchy in general, but... help!!!

-Kero :huh:

Sometimes the Name thing kinda gets a little too glitchy, changing the name, or taking away the first letter. Since your pet's name is Flame, it might take away the "F" and change your pet's name to "Lame", which is a little insulting, thinking that the V4 is insulting your pet...joking aside, how many times did it do that? It never does that to me at all, however.

Yes, I recall it taking away the first letter as well. It was pretty alarming and funny at the same time. Anyways, it just changes randomly whenever. There isn't any pattern to it.

That happens to V4s sometimes. The only thing you can do about it is maybe to press the reset button and select "download," and I'm not sure that works either.

A lot of these glitches happen when you don't reset it after pulling the tab from the Tamagotchi, not sure if that one is like that.

It's happened to my friend's Tamagotchi before, fairly normal but ALARMING!! :o

This can also happen when connecting Tamagotchis, the letters can change to other letters (and sometimes Japanese characters) in the friends list. I don't know what causes it to happen, maybe an incorrect infrared connection.

Thanks, Amat, but downloading does not help. I even took out the battery and put it back in. On the freinds list, Flame appears as Flame, but Kayla (my v3) appears as Kayl. Its pretty scary o.o What else can I do?

Try connecting them again, out of sunlight or very cold weather. Unfortunately, though, this glitch might not be curable. :(

I always connect inside at room temparature. I think I'll just see if this glitch continues next gen. -_- Thanks for helping out though, I'm definatly less alarmed by this. After all, the v4 is known for being extra glitchy. ^_^

My sister had the same thing happen to her v4.5. The name changed, like yours did (i don't remember the name her's had)

I think her tamagotchi might've been dropped or hit on something really hard by accident. It went back to normal when she reset it though, but I don't think you'd want to reset it. Have you ever dropped your v4 before? I think that might be the cause :)

Yeah, this happened to my old V4.5 I dont own anymore, glitches like these happen if something inside of the Tamagotchi messes up, mostly caused by being dropped, causing something to move around and occasionally fall back into place. This does not affect gameplay other than the names letter(s), but your Tamagotchi will be fine other than the name.

This topic also has information on what happened. http://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/148515-name-glitch/

Your tama is most likely trying to tell you something.

Speak to him in a soothing voice, and tickle him lightly at the base of the ball antennae. Most v4's like that and it might make him less shy and ready to speak. Ask him politely and in a clear voice what he's got to say. It might be important.

:wacko: :wacko:

... I'm tired, okay?

 

Anyways I've never known the v4 as a "generally glitchy" version, but I think it's one of the differences between american and european ones maybe? None of my four v4's has ever glitched the slightest, and I got the first one in 2007...

Funny glitch anyway.

Yup. It's the strangest glitch in the world. It sometimes happens to my V4's and V4.5's.

its an odd programming error found in v4, and 4.5 tamas, you can't do anything else but live with it really

Yes, you are all right. The v4 is naturally a glitchy Tama. I've never dropped it, but I bought it used so... Yeah. Thanks for helping out ^_^

      I’ve been getting back into my old v4. I ended up buying a gen2 mini since all of the connections are expensive on ebay. I hatched it for the first time around the same time my v4 had a new baby. The v4 gotchi is an adult now and the gen2 mini has been stuck on the teen stage for days. I did try pausing the mini and messed with the clock in the beginning, but 8 years seems like too old for a teen gotchi. 
      Has anyone else had similar problems with the reboot models? 
      (actually is the pink blue tamagotchi shown a mini?) or is this just the normal size?

      So, for years now, my Tamagotchi Connection V4 doesn't really ever turn on.. Once I put in the battery, the egg appears on the screen and it works normally for about 10-15 seconds or so.. it then shows one or two horizontal lines on the screen and it shuts off. If I press the reset button, it will show the egg all over again, but it's a matter of time for the same thing to happen.. I believe it's not a battery problem, because it turns on with the reset button without moving or changing the battery (also, the same battery works on my V4.5 just fine). Lastly, I recently opened it up and cleaned everything inside, even the buttons, but it still won't work.
      Please, anyone who may know something or having experience on that matter, let me know on what to do! I feel very nostalgic lately, and I really want to bring my "dead" Tamagotchis back to life, starting from this one.
      Thank you all in advance!

      The screen went funky after I dropped it, and showed two baby boys before I could reset or download once I got the screen on. I tried putting new batteries in and now it just won't turn on at all. Does anyone know of any way or anyone I could send this to to try to fix it? I believe it's the wires but I'm not positive.

      I have tried several times to purchase the little drum accessory. It subtracts points but I’ve never been able to find the drum where all the other accessories are.
       
      is this normal?

      I just started up My Tamagotchi, and I had 2 of the Right LR44 Batteries. We out Both in, And it made a beep and the Clock came on. My Dad tried to Put the Battery Cover Back, And when he thought he did, 2 Big Black lines came on the side of the screen. I got really worried, and he Took the batteries out again. They were still there! Tried resetting, then they eventually started to fade. But now, we’re still trying and trying to get the screen on, by taking the batteries in and out, resetting. But nothings happening. It’s a Usatama Disney, And I got it used from JYW. I’m really disappointed, and I’m really worried. Tell me if I’m doing anything wrong, but the Batteries are also very jiggly in the case.
