Ok earthlings, I just found out of how to debug your Pixel Pet, Keep on pressing the tick button repeatedly until you see cobwebs, some black thing that has thease smell mark stuff and you see your Hamster \ Puppy have a mad face. Try it, it is really fun!
Okay, so I was kinda bored using my iPad today (usually never happens, lol). So I decided to try and debug my V3. I know you think I'm terrible, someone debugging their very first tamagotchi! But I don't use it anymore, and it is a bit boring anymore (now you think I'm horrible).
I found a topic on how to do it on TamaTalk, but after several attempts and following the directions exactly, it never worked for me. So I googled some videos unders YouTube, watched one, and it worked! I won't list any names here, though I just thought it might be good to make an accurate topic on how to debug a V3
First, you will need a small screwdriver, a graphite pencil, and tape (probably).
Step 1: Flip your tama over.
Step 2: Unscrew the panel and remove the battery.
Step 3: You will then see four, very tiny screws, one in each corner. Unscrew those (and don't loose them)!
Step 4: Now, this is the tricky part. Carefully, oh so carefully, take apart the tamagotchi so it is split in half. Do it very slowy, or you will tear apart the two, white sound wires (that is actually the thing I did on my second try ). If you do tear them, just put a piece of tape to secure them (though that may not work either, and now my tama won't make any noises ). As you open your tama, the red top that covers the IR port may come off. You can just pop it back on later.
Step 4: Interesting isn't it! Next, take the pencil and rub on the button under the words "DEBUG." Make sure you get a lot of graphite on there.
Step 5: Next, put the other half back on and screw it tight. Place the battery where it was before, then screw the top panel back on. Flip your tamagotchi back over, and there will be a glitching egg (sorta bouncing up and down at hyperspeed).
Step 6: Press the "B" button, and choose "RESET." Set the date and your birthday (you'll notice that the numbers are glitching also). Sadly, you can't choose a username, so just keep pressing "B" until that screen changes. When it does, an egg will flash for a second, and then it will choose a random gender. Next, press "A" to scroll through all the characters (which are all the same gender). Once you select a character, you will be prompted to name it. I named mine "Debug." Lol!
Finally, you can pause, look at the time, and take care of your tama as you normally do. Also, you can ever speed up its growth! Just press "C," and your character will grow (along with the time) until it does something (poop, take a bath, get sick, etc.)!
To reverse it, just follow Steps 1 through 3 again, but when you get to the debug button, just try to wipe off the graphite.
The TamaTalk tips and tricks forum has other topics about debugging.

Here are the Tamagotchi I'll be running and rambling about:
view of case:
This morning, I set the username WITTY on the V3 (so that whenever I feel like undebugging it and using the souvenir codes, I can), and sped through to the matchmaker. After I hit full training*, I repeatedly set it to bedtime and sped up sleep cycle after sleep cycle until I was at the right age to meet the matchmaker. Before all this, I had chosen a boy with the intention of waiting (matchmaker breeding) until another boy came along in the family on an odd generation. When this child came along, I would raise it into old age and pair it with my V2 to have a boy who would evolve into Oyajitchi. (By the way, Mametchi, generation one, had a girl.)
On the V2, I have just done the opposite in choosing a girl. I'll wait until another comes along as an even-numbered generation somewhere down the line and pair it with this V3. (I chose odd and even respectively because I like the others' characters more, and so I feel like there ought to be more of those other generations in my family history.)
and, as you can see, the V2 is on Young Mametchi. It, too, is generation one.
Also, did you guys know Mametchi backpacks, as part of his idle-time animation? I didn't. I wonder if I actually paid attention before, heh.
I debugged my tamagotchi connection a few days ago, I screwed it back together and put it away to fix later after I accidentally detached the speaker wires. This glitch kept happening, even after multiple resets:
I put the battery in, then it makes the normal beep noise and shows the egg bouncing at normal speed.
I press B and the clock screen shows up and it's making me set it.
I set the time, date and birthday to random numbers.
It goes back to the egg like normal.
I wait a few minutes and it hasn't hatched.
I press B and it's asking me to set the clock again, but it has the numbers I input last time.
Repeat X infinity including resets and taking the battery out.
Any advice on how to fix it would be great. I did debug it and un-debug it 2 or 3 times in hope of fixing it. I also tried coloring and erasing the J1 and J2 buttons too, but I don't think that would have done anything anyway.

Okay, so I've got a version 4.5 that's been ruined for years. It uses up all the power in a brand new battery in just one day. So it's pretty much useless, and I've decided it would be fun to debug it. I took it apart and found the word "debug" on the chip but I don't know what to do. @_@
So I'm basically asking how to debug a Tamagotchi, and what exactly happens when it's in debug mode. I'm not quite sure what goes on as this will be my first attempt as debugging, but any help is appreciated.
