Bandai's Response to a Message I sent regarding The ON and Meets Connecting and Possible Retained Bugs

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Due to the Meets and ON being found by several reviewers of the ON to be able to connect, after Bandai US stated they would not be able to, some in the community began to feel that if they were wrong about the two connecting that Bandai US was wrong about the bugs and glitches in the Meets being fixed in the ON was also not correct.

I messaged Bandai US about this. Bellow is the message I sent them and their response. The blackout information is my name to protect my privacy.

Hover over the image and click on it to zoom in on it. Your mouse cursor should turn into a magnifying glass with a "+" symbol on it when you hover your mouse over it indicating you can zoom in on it.

Common issue with Imgur on mobile devices. Usually lower resolution to save on data. Unfortunately it'll make text really blurry.

Well, that answer was anticlimactic. I guess only time will tell if the random reset glitch is still present. On the bright side, it’s nice knowing Meets owners won’t need two Tamagotchi Ons!

Canadian fans have theirs early so maybe if anything turns up before the release on the 28th they'll let us know.

There's also the people Bandai sent Tamagotchi ON's to in order to review them and give their thoughts and they've had the ON's for a while now. So I think any bugs or glitches would have shown up by now if their still playing with them. And I haven't heard of any bugs or glitches from the reviewers.

It wasn't there when I reviewed and approved the thread, so I'm guessing that something went wrong when the post was made (though what that is, I don't know).

For additional clarity, here's an embed of the image, as well;

I must say that I appreciate their honesty! Their department doesn't know for sure, and they don't mince words about it - that's far better than vague, non-committal answers that might get people's hopes up (as is the norm, on, say, a company's social-media channels).

@Penguin-keeperI sent a second message to Bandai with the same message above when I sent the first (I was worried at the time I misspelled my email address so I sent another message right after the first) so I might be getting another message relating to this issue. Most likely from a different Costumer Service person who might be able to give us different information. I'll post it if I receive another message.

I don't really know about the Meets glitches, but I own an On and I noticed something...

I've seen a lot of people online saying you can leave your Tamagotchi at the hotel in the Meets for an hourly fee. Correct me if I'm wrong here. Anyhow. this doesn't seem possible on my Tamagotchi On (no such option from what I've seen), so I suspect the Meets and On have different software - not just translations. They might just share the same connection protocol.

The glitches in the Meets include:

  • Lagging
  • Tama not getting older (Called the Peter Pan Glitch)
  • Resetting on its own.

The Resort Hotel is an unlockable location unlocked when you travel to any destination for the first time. Your Tamagotchi can't travel anywhere when its in the baby stage, it has to be a child, teen or adult to travel. Try unlocking Gourmet Street by eating Omurice at the restaurant 5 times and then travel to Gourmet Street and see if that doesn't unlock the hotel.

I think you misunderstood what I meant.

I've been to the Tama Hotel as a child, teen, and adult. There's just no option to leave my Tamagotchi there.

 

EDIT: Never mind. The option is, in fact, there. The tranlation was just awful. They used the word "Leave," not "Drop Off" or "Rent Room." I had assumed "Leave" meant "Return Home..."

I have the on. It connects to the Japanese app but it's useless as you cannot take anything back with you

Theres spelling errors. And the battery life kinda sucks. Mine lasted 3 days when I first bought it. So you have to play with your tama sparingly it seems to prolong its life. It also does lag. I'm sure it's all due to all the information in it and the bluetooth that is very draining. But it's something they may need to work on. However rechargeable batteries here are a must. Have a set on charge and in use and swap them out.

Was your Tama's screen brightness turned up or at the lowest setting? Where are the spelling errors located?

      Hey there! I'll be journaling my first Tama On diary. 
      This afternoon I intended to start over a new generation since my teen evolved and I got Gozarutchi *again* due to bad care... And by bad I mean hours of neglect by sleeping in til noon and crazy part time shifts. The ninja hat trait was so persistent through the previous family tree and it wasn't my most favourite.
      BUT I decided I couldn't go through another tamagotchi funeral after the last one (it was too painful tbh)
       
      RIP great-great-grandchildren of Gozarutchi I. He was a weird looking combo but overall sweet boy. 
      So I decided to keep my Gozarutchi II in loving memory of the previous Gozarutchi the I clan.
      Almost as an apology I fed him some curry from Tama Farm which he seemed to enjoy. Then I aimed to marry him off. 
      Mister Goza also caught me off guard doing some paintings action. This was new. It was funny he was frustrated to get the ducks to stand up so he could paint them lol. 

      We went ahead and bought the grand wedding ring. Costed 5000 G so that lucky gal better be saying yes. Our boi is flaming with passion.

      The unforgettable moment awaits...! Without any further delay he heads off to find the girl of his dream... 

      We just got ourselves a Pizza Wife. So long, sad, single-life! Surviving my initial murder intention, my boy is officially in the manhood and properly wife-d. 
      Fast forward the honeymoon we now have a cute custard baby. He does look like a little custard bun. I named him baby Hope. I noticed in the last generation that if I marry a tama with another prominent head-trait, it dominates over the ninja head trait. My Pizza wife does have a pizza head, I wonder if this time that could dominate over the ninja trait.

      Hi! I recently got my tamagotchi meets and I was wondering if using the mymeets app for just items would cause me to get in trouble? I know that marrying a character from the mymeets app and then marrying a tama from the official app can get you in trouble, but I was wondering if I just use it for items and then go on the official app for marrying or smth will I still get in trouble?

      The instruction manual for the Tamagotchi ON claims that twins appear "every once in a while, " implying that it is a rare occurrence. I am challenging this claim with circumstantial evidence that points towards it actually being based on genetics in a similar way to how physical traits are determined.
      I am currently in the 15th generation of my Tamagotchi family. After tallying up which generations included twins and which didn't, I found that there were 10 out of 15 instances in which twins occurred. You could even take the first generation out of that, since it is impossible to have twins on the first generation, which would make it 10 out of 14 instances. This means that over 70% of the time, I have received twins, which is way too likely to be, "every once in a while." 
      This could be chalked up to really good luck, but it's not as fun that way, is it? I honestly believe, based on my results, that my Tamagotchi bloodline is somehow predisposed to twins. My first set of twins happened immediately in my second generation, which sparked the long line of twins to come. I think Bandai knew what they were doing with this, as in they intentionally made it this way just to add depth to the genetics mechanic as a whole. 
      Let me know what y'all think.

      So when I got my ON I noticed in the connection icon that it lists "Tamagotchi", "Download" and "App" as connection functions.
      Tamagotchi is to connect with another Tama, App is for any interactions with the ON App, but then there's Download. I assume this is how Meets interact with the Meets stations over in Japan because that's the only other connection there could be. So I figured Bandai had something in mind for the west, either with our own ON Stations or something else. After all why keep a feature in the unit that users have access to if it wasn't something that was going to be in use. If it wasn't going to be used Bandai would have removed the feature or prevent access to it by removing it from the connection icon menu if removing the feature overall would glitch the programing. That's why with video games there are test rooms and text textures and stuff still there, because removing them would glitch or severely break the game.
      And Tama Palace showed this a while back: https://tamapalace.tumblr.com/post/186961460353/tamagotchi-on-stations-bandai-america-has-another
      Bandai had something planned but it fell through and theirs a chance their working on something else. I think we could get our own versions of the stations like Japan, who knows stores might be willing to set aside shelve space if it means an intensive to get people into physical stores after the internet has made less reason to go to physical stores. I'm not saying they have to be the same size as their Japanese counter parts.
      Maybe you could use your phone in connection to the unit with bluetooth to download stuff from certain areas via Bandai's website. Like go to a major spot (Like Times Square for example since Tokyo has a station), open your phone and go to Bandai's Tamagotchi page were there would be a special button to interact with, put your Tama in front of the phone and select download on your Tama after taping the button on your phone on the webpage? I'm not the most well versed in this stuff so I'm now sure how it would work out if this is possible or not.

      I need help! >.<
      I'm buying a new Tama, but I can't decide on whether I want the Meets or the On. I know they're the same with the language being the only difference, but here's where my debate comes in:
      1.) I love the Meets packaging! The one from the On isn't as exciting for when I first open my tama. I know the packaging isn't everything, but like keeping things like that (I have all of my other packages from my other tama's too. aha)
      2.) I know some Japanese, but I'm fluent in English. (Obviously.) I like knowing what is being said between different characters so I wouldn't be able to do that with the Meets, but I LOVE the Meets glitter in the plastic on the shell. The pearl is pretty for the On, but ... idano, man. Something about that glitter. >:P
      3.) I really really REALLLLLLY want the Sanrio Meets, but again... I won't be able to see the convos between my characters and can the meets connect to the on tama's? (You know.. because one is in English and the other is in Japanese..)
      and 4.) ... is it possible for the app for the meets to work in the US with a Meets instead of an On Tama?
