Hello everyone, :)

I just unpacked my new Tamagotchi V4. And I'm experiencing some technical difficulties.

The Situation:

I've put the time after my radio clock, right in time. Time passed normally.  I've noticed that when my Tamagotchi goes to bed, the time went faster. The next morning there was a difference from 46 seconds. During the day the time passed normally, until he goes to bed. Then the same problem happens again. For a day it is no big deal, but when it all sums up, it's quite annoying.

I hope that somebody can help me.

kind regards,

98mametchi98

Oh, it’s most likely a glitch. My friend has experienced Difficulties with Time on her TF, and it really is not avoidable. But, if it spreads (As I call it, more glitches start to pop up) your best bet is the Debug. That’s if this version has the debug!

Hello,

thank you very much for your fast answer.

What is the Debug? And how can i use it?

Is it where you push the A, the B  and the Reset button at the same time?

The Tamagotchi V4 is known to have many glitches. If you use the search function on TamaTalk you can find many posts about it :) 

As for debugging, I don’t see how it would fix glitches but a guide on how to do it can be found here. Just to note, only US/North American versions (connections) can be debugged, it’s not worth trying on a European version as it’s not possible (connexion).

Do all the Tamagotchis V4 have such a glitch? Could anyone else find out about his V4?

I haven’t ran my V4 is a while now but O have never noticed an issue on my versions. Have you tried resetting it? You will lose your character and progress by resetting it but it might fix any glitches that occure. A lot of glitches tend to appear when you don’t reset the Tamagotchi and just download.

No, I did not reset it because it was new and I started it normally.
But interesting that this problem did not occur with you.

Could you never notice this problem?

If the Tamagotchi is new and you pull the tab out best practice is to still press the reset button. I’ve never personally noticed this issue but I haven’t ran a V4 is many years now.

Okay, I'll try it and see if it fixes the bug.

Is it enough to press the normal reset button? I also heard something about a hard reset...

I think your misunderstanding the “Hard Reset”. For what I know, you open up the tams and do it that. Way? Idk but your best. Bet. Is to open up a tamagotchi and rup the small button the has DEBUG on it. Get a pencil and rub it a few times.

NOO don't do this!!! Debugging can actually break your tamagotchi if you don't know what you are doing. Bad advice. (And it's impossible to do it on non-american versions, anyway.) To actually reset a tamagotchi you don't need to open up anything.

To reset the tama you need need to push a small button on the back with something pointy. A soft reset I think is when you hit it then choose "download", you will regain your character and some bugs MIGHT be fixed that way, but not necessarily. A hard reset is when you hit "RESET" instead of download and all you had saved will be lost, but the toy will be pretty much reset to factory settings.

      Side Note~
      Recently, I’ve found a screenshot of a game that claims to have been released for the iPod 3rd and 4th generations. I am good when it comes to iPhones, but I know little about the iPods. 
      Luckily, my sister has an older one and so does my grandad. Now, I doubt they would be able to be downloaded ( I don’t really know, but its a guess ) but if anyone has any information I’d love to get a hold of it.
      Now, in to the real point!  
      Here is the only piece of evidence I could find on the whole internet. Seriosly! This is it along with a single article here~
      https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.engadget.com/amp/2008/11/06/new-ipod-game-tamagotchi/
      It says 2008. That’s when it was most likely released. And there’s a pretty neat picture, too.
      If anyone knows anything else- please let me know!

      Sure, there are lots of fan-made Tamagotchi pins out there, but I thought that this one was particularly notable, as it's the first one that I've seen that's based on the colour models;

      I also found this neat Tamagotchi/Kirby mash-up;

      Has anybody else found any other good ones?

      When you look back at your time with the Tamagotchi line, what's your personal all-time favourite moment?
      For me, it was noticing that the art-style of the Gen 1 Tamagotchi was quite similar to, and shared an oddball sense of humour with, Nintendo and HAL Laboratory's Kirby video game series, which I noticed right after the Tamagotchi line was released in the West.
      I first noticed this when my first Babytchi evolved into Marutchi, because I felt that Marutchi kind of resembled Kirby, and I continued to notice it throughout my time running the device.

      Kirby meets Marutchi.
      Kirby originated on the Game Boy, which had a greyscale display that allowed for four shades of green (which was changed to four shades of grey on the Game Boy Pocket), and the Tamagotchi line originally had monochrome displays, so similar limitations influenced the character-designs of both, which are generally simple, cute, and very expressive.
      The Kirby series is one of my all-time favourite video game series, and I loved the fact that the Tamagotchi bore similarities to its art-style and sense of humour, so that's why this is my favourite nostalgic Tamagotchi moment.
      What's yours?

      I’m a HUGE Kawaii International Fan & I recently found a Facebook a post from 2014, where they did a Blog about the Tokyo Shop, and I’d really like to find the original episode; if there is one.
      If anyone can Share a link or Video that would be very much appreciated

      Hey I have just bought a Tamagotchi Gen1 in a good condition. Yesterday, when I start it, I saw a Box around the egg. I took apart the Tamagotchi and cleaning up the contacts from the screen. And last but not least: Its the same result.
      In this Video, you can see my Problem. (10:55)
      How can I fix it?
