Concerns about the My Meets App, Tamagotchi ON and interactions on the Meets App

Recommended Posts

I've been reading that people have suffered their Tamagotchi ON or Meets suffering currupted data and other problems due to items or characters made in the MyMeets fan app.

I have no intention of using the app with my Tamagotchi ON or the Meets app with my ON. But I'm worried about those who have used it and then go on to use the ON's app when its finally released and interact with other users through the marriage feature.

Even though Bandai Japan has warned people to not use the MyMeets app with the Meets app or their account would be banned and their warranty on the device voided I'm sure there are people out there that will ignore this and do it anyway.

It makes me worried about when the ON's app is released. Like if I connect and end up marrying my Tama to a Tama whose user used the MyMeets app for its genetics will it brick or corrupt my ON?

After 3 months of waiting for this devices release and the app, having that happen would really stink. I hate the idea of having to restrict my use of the app, especially the one feature I liked about it the most (marrying my Tama to other users Tama's) because of this.

Is there any info regarding if data corruption can happen between a Tama that had the MyMeets used with it and a Tama that hasn't and if the non MyMeets Tama got corrupted or glitchy? I've heard of people who had used the MyMeets app having their Tama corrupted but not if it spread through connecting it in anyway with other Tama's.

It is actually one of my biggest concerns! :angry:

I remember a month ago, my tama married a really beautiful character and I though this could never happen espically with how the mixing mechanics work, then I found out about the MyMeets App! 

Still not sure if the other Tama is from MyMeets or not, but sometimes it’s obvious that some characters look SO good that you only left to think that they were made in MyMeets App!

Luckily I never experienced any issues with my devices and my account wasn’t banned! 

Bandai officially said that they will ban those who use the MyMeets App, but they didn’t mention those who might interact and possibly marry their tamas with the ones who used MyMeets App.

Makes me hope they put some scanner or something into the ON's app to find out right away if the unit connecting had the MyMeets app used on it and stop them from connecting to the ON's offical app before any damage can happen to those following the rules.

I'm all for people having fun, and this app would be cool if it didn't risk causing possible problems for people NOT using it.

Its one of those situations where I really wish the MyMeets app was never made. Yes there are people who will understand and use the MyMeets app but stay off the official app knowing it can cause other users problems. But then there are those who don't care or are vindictive enough to do it on purpose to break or ruin other peoples Tama's.

Sorry about being new to this, but why ban? Did something happen to the platform? I use the app, so will I and many other casual fans? :(

They’re banning the accounts because it’s not officially from bandai, and everyone now can access to exclusive station genes and stuff that is only in Japan! 

I understand it’s frustrating that it came to the point where they started banning people, but they’re doing the right thing here, if people carry on using the corrupted data I think sooner or later the official app and the actual devices will have issues and obviously bandai doesn’t want that!

not to metion that people wont buy new editions instead they will access and get the special genes with any version they have from MyMeets App, and that will be affecting the sales of the toy :o

...Yikes.

I use the MyMeets app; in fact, my current character is from there. I just thought it was so awesome and I'd never heard of Bandai's banning people before.

I was so looking forward to marrying my character with someone from the ON app. Now I can't?

What about the next generation? Will Bandai ban me if I put the MyMeets character's child in the app? Does it still show that it's from MyMeets?

I should've known MyMeets was too good to come without any consequences. Sigh.

i think you'll be okay as long as you wait until the next generation to connect to the app, i see characters around all the time that pretty clearly have mymeets ancestry, and they seem to be okay

i've married some of the characters that have mymeets genetics and mine have been okay, the only real issue i've seen around is some people seem to get tamagotchi without eyes in the adult stage, but those are pretty easy to avoid because it's obvious there's eyeless tamagotchi in their family tree

i can't use it myself because it doesn't run on linux (well, it does with WINE, but WINE doesn't have bluetooth support so i can't connect with it), but i'm a little thankful for mymeets making station-exclusive genetics and what have you easier to come by, i feel like there's not a chance i would have gotten dorotchi genetics so easily otherwise, haha

Wow, I had no idea that MyMeets what even a thing. Of course given that I got my Tamagotchi On two days ago, as of writing this, so it would make sense that I haven’t found it. I did notice while going through the park the the Tamagotchi On App, that some characters were distinctly unique from others. I just thought maybe they were from Sanrio or perhaps a different type of Tamagotchi meets. From y’alls perspective, should I avoid marrying in the park then with other players Tamas? It’s  my very first generation, her name is Hanbunkotchi, so once she’s an adult and marries, the baby will be my second generation, and of course my very first mix, so I don’t want wanna mess anything up.

you should be okay, i've married mine to someone's from the park almost every generation and it's been fine, but if you're really worried about it, you could try just marrying the special park guest in the tama party, or check the family tree of whoever you're going to propose to beforehand to make sure there's no weird glitchy tamagotchi in there

I highly doubt they can ban anyone who has married a corrupted character- by that point half the population would be banned, it only takes one tama to mess it all up since if they do the egg trick then everyone they shared their genes with would be banned. Bandai knows better than to do such a rash tacit, more than likely they will target select models i.e the ONS and Ssome since they cannot have access to these stations.

There is only so much information they can see. So I wouldn't worry too much. More than likely if you have meets genes nothing will happen.

On the news of glitching I don't use my meets on my tamas currently but I know for a fact uploading backgrounds wrong can make your tama disappear temporarily. When you do mix genes occasionally it will cause a reset since the data is not from an actual device, I would need to test with a tama myself but I assume its actually anti-piracy or its own software protection. I am not sure how intelligent the software is however it seems to be forced only when marrying. 

Of course I should say its rare and only from heavy use. If you use it to marry every single time, or heavily change the backgrounds thats typically what causes it to corrupt. As long as it is in moderation the app is safe to use! 

Hopefully I had some answers for you.

      Hey everyone! This is my tamagotchi on: purple magic log. I’ll update regularly.
    • By Save_Tamagotchis
      I have two ON's active, a green magic which I got back in the June and a pink fairy I got for Christmas.
      I keep both with the screen brightness at the lowest setting to conserve battery. But my fairy ON's screen is lightly brighter then my magic's.
      At first I thought it was the color contrast (the fairy being pink with white designs and the magic being green with black) or maybe the brightness wasn't turned down all the way on my fairy.
      But after checking that the brightness is at the lowest setting for both, then covering both until only the screens were showing to avoid the coloring from any distortion their colors might be doing, and setting them both on the contract setting screen to avoid their wallpapers from affecting my ability to tell as well. I've found that yes my fairy's screen is brighter.
      I don't know if this is a early indication that the batteries are getting low before they die or if maybe this is something with my magic ON like a defect. Has anyone with more then one ON experienced this where one or more of their ON's screens are brighter then the others?

      I was looking forward to Minecraft Earth, but while my iOS is up to date, I own an iPhone 6, which does not support some of the stuff Minecraft Earth was built to use.
      This stinks....

      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.

      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.
