So...Some of you asked me what is going to happen to the https://alexgtama.tk and http://famita.ml TamaTown sites after Flash Player reaches its End of Life (December 31st 2020). @SilicaAndPina and I have decided that the sites will NOT be discontinued and instead they will run on the standalone version of Adobe Flash Player (Adobe Flash Projector). As some of you already know, there is a project being developed to put Adobe Flash Player back on the internet (http://ruffle.rs). So, because it is under active development and its not stable, we have decided that we should wait for a stable version to be released and then implement on our sites (although @SilicaAndPina has already implemented it separately on the V5 TamaTown just for the sake of it). Further instructions regarding the use of Flash Player Projector will be provided at the end of December. We will not allow TamaTown to die so easily. We have done so for years and we will continue! We are as excited as you are! See you soon! Stay safe!
I recently purchased this on eBay because it looked interesting. I couldn't find a wiki article about it or much info anywhere else. I don't think it's a traditional tama in which you hatch and raise a baby. I believe it's an accessory for possibly the v3 or v4? Does anyone know or recognize this big boy and can give me some details about it? Seems to be from 2005 according to the bandai copyright on the box.
I'm currently procrastinating over the "Project Tamatown" situation I put myself in. For the last 3 hours I've been messing around with what use to be tamatown, but I've basically gone nowhere. You've got pngs, source codes and a pretty neat wallpaper ( That I'll put in the comments if I can ) and some other little bits and bobs. But that's it. All the files that I know how to get are unless.
But that's my point. First, I tried all the links like " Revived Tamatown" or " New Tamatown" and others like that. And none of them work for me! ( By that I mean my computer says " Safari can't open this page because the server is not responding".)
So, I'm wondering if anyone has a stable link for some reminiscence of Tamatown ( Preferably some games or V3 related files ) that me and other Tamagotchi-fans can use and enjoy. I was too late to the Tamagotchi fandom to be able to enjoy tamatown, so I'd absolutely love to experience the website.
OK, so, the app tells you that different food combinations will net you different characters as your Tamas grow, and I`m wondering just how this system works!
I`ve fed two Tamas a fruit-only diet so far (apple and orange) and got Omutsutchi --- Hoshitchi ---- Nikatchi ---- Chamametchi, both times. Now, on a sushi-only diet, so far I`ve had Futabatchi --- Hoshitchi --- Hinatchi --- (we`ll see!)
Fellow Tamagotchi caretakers, I need your help: post your Tamagotchi`s growth stages here, along with any notable staples of their diet (or exceptions!). I`m gonna get a spreadsheet going and see if we can eventually find anything interesting!
Let's work together to figure out this app! (The fun, Sherlock Holmes kinda way, not the "get all the code and tell the world" way.)
Software engineer and dedicated tamagotchi fan Luc Rubio is working to reconstruct all versions of TamaTown and make them available on the website linked above. I found this from Tama-Palace on Tumblr, here's a link to their comprehensive post on this: https://tamapalace.tumblr.com/post/172004493601/
Rubio is detailing his progress on this project on his GitHub page: https://github.com/loociano/tamatown
This is really exciting news! I made a status update a few months back asking, "I recently discovered that even though Club Penguin has been removed by Disney, many people are hosting rewritten versions of it on private servers. Is there any reason that somebody hasn't done this with any of the versions of TamaTown, especially the TamaGo one? I miss those so much!" I'm so happy that this is actually being done. What are your thoughts?
