It’s awesome how you put this together!

 

Yet another time I wished I had an Android phone. :(

Have you considered making an .ipa for iOS devices? I’m not sure what kind of work goes into something like that, I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the most tech-savvy.

Hey thanks!

I'm really sorry for no iOS support yet, but I don't have the slightest clue where to start iPhone development (I've never had anything Apple, a little too pricy for my taste).

I have no plan of doing anything iPhone related yet as I'm only starting Android development, and a lot of work is ahead of me for the next few days, weeks and months.

alright so I looked it up and apparently it might be easier than I thought:

I'll try to use it and see if it works. If it does you'll have to tell me if it worked for your iPhone

Oh, of course! I’m working from home right now, so I’ll be able to help test whenever. ^_^

thanks! apparently the site I showed you only allows one to use it once before you have to pay to subscribe. I will give it a try though, just to see how good it is.

Alright so Build 3 is here!

I've improved many things from the user interface to some aspects of the gameplay to what's displayed in the console. Only thing I can't do is make the MCR start up quicker, that's beyond my reach!

You'll find everything you need (including instructions on how to setup and start) here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Tnx9Gc7V5srS09-wXH-XZNHgw4yb-iYn?usp=sharing

I've added menus so you can reset the Tamagotchi without having to delete the "tmgc_save.mat" file. (The reset option closes the app and you will find a new egg when you re-open it). I've also added basic Help and About menus. And finally there is a "save" button that saves your progress instantly. (The game used to only save when the user leaves, which could potentially be disastrous in case the computer crashes or resets).

I've changed the way evolutions work too. They're still based ONLY on the number of care misses, but now they're a little more forgiving. The way it was, I could never get any character other than the worst care character. 

There's also a trick (that you can figure out on your own if you're just a little tech savvy) to raise as many characters as you want (it involves keeping copies of the file "tmgc_save.mat" under different file names). This trick should be the basis of the next big improvement of the app (don't ask me when it's coming), i.e. allowing the user to raise multiple characters (without manually fiddling around with save files).

About the secret character: Yes.

I've been raising a character for about 5 days now, to find as many glitches as possible. It evolved into a Takotchi yesterday (I hadn't improved the evolution system yet). This is what the app looks like now:

If you want to see more, I'll be logging about it starting from tomorrow. Maybe showing you what the app looks like will make you want to try it for yourself. And if you do and find trouble, do not hesitate to contact me for support!

Have a good day or night!

So, I haven't forgotten about you but that website I was talking about is closed. Apparently iOS programming is done in C. I do have experience in C, but what I do not have is 1/time, 2/ an iPhone, so I'm really sorry. :/

@LucidLyes

Hey, it’s no problem! I would use an Android emulator (BlueStacks) if my laptop could actually run it. I’ll be reading your log on it, so include lots of pictures for me! :D

Hello, you are really great, make sure you don't have any problems, I read about some converting applications and they just broke the application and nothing happened, and I also saw many companies that are engaged in convert android app to ios, you can also try freelancing... I know that you can take a consultation from a specialist of your choice on freelancing, and do what you need under his control, so you will learn
