    V3 Password Experimentation

    Just a quick update: after a small breakthrough earlier today, I’ve managed to crack the V6 login passwords. Logout passwords and item passwords are still uncracked but this revelation puts us significantly closer to cracking them. I’ll do another post soon with more information about how they...

    Tamagotchi on MAME

    I believe it is, but it’s been a while since I played it - I remember being surprised by how good it looked, though

    Tamagotchi on MAME

    I think a lot of it is that not many people have heard of the MAME support yet. I actually played it not too long ago and it wasn’t so bad!

    Tamagotchi on MAME

    I’d assume so yeah, as I recall the full data is VERY small indeed, whereas something like a connection version would be a bit larger. Currently some of the discussions surrounding how to dump the Connection versions are suggesting that we might have to take a similar approach for those devices...

    Tamagotchi on MAME

    I have indeed; this is one of a very small handful of Tamagotchis that have had code dumps. As I recall this was done optically, so they literally read off the 1s and 0s off the chip rather than finding an exploit to automate reading the data off.

    V3 Password Experimentation

    Hi all - after taking a little bit of a break, I decided to have another crack at the V4 login / logout passwords. After a few days I managed to figure out the format of the codes and write a logout password generator: https://www.mamemamelabs.com/v4-logout-password-generator I would like to...

    prototype tamagotchi sprites found in sengoku turb F.I.D

    Ah yes, the sprites from the patent doc. Interestingly enough, the V1 patent doc also has sprites of the P1-style Masukutchi in place of the Connection series Masktchi. I believe Tarakotchi was also seen using a different idle sprite on the US box art and on the website, too - I often wonder if...

    prototype tamagotchi sprites found in sengoku turb F.I.D

    I’m pretty sure I do, buuuut it wouldn’t hurt to see them again just in case I’ve lost the images at some point!

    prototype tamagotchi sprites found in sengoku turb F.I.D

    I’ve been meaning on making some sort of record / archive of each of the places we’ve seen pre-final sprites and prototype designs before, so this does a good job at filling another gap on the Tamagotchi prerelease timeline. Thank you so much for sharing!

    Rarest Tamagotchi?

    I'm double posting here, but there's one other especially rare version I want to talk about - I've been searching for this one for quite a while now and I figure with how rare and mysterious this version is, it'll only get found if I start reaching out to people to help me out. For a little...

    Something weird is going on...

    Want things to get even weirder? That one on the left is definitely a V1 - the writing on the packaging perfectly aligns with it being a V1, as does the shell design, so... Why does the plastic stick out beneath the logo like on a V2? Well as it turns out, there's some (pretty rare) late V1s...

    Rarest Tamagotchi?

    Specifically the ones with the special packaging though - most pink / blue osutchis / mesutchis are the normal variety. Not all pink / blue osumesus are test versions, but all test versions are pink / blue.

    Rarest Tamagotchi?

    Oh boy, so, those test Osutchis / Mesutchis, I don't think I'll fully be able to do them justice but here's what I've been able to dig up from the chats I've had about them before. According to the Tamagotchi Wiki, If you think this sounds really weird, that's because it is. Hopefully...

    Rarest Tamagotchi?

    Conan iD is definitely a strong contender. Other especially rare devices - the GLAY Expo Plus, PUMA V2, prerelease Osu/Mesu - I’ve seen quite a few times, even in their rarity, but the Conan iD is one which seems to persistently evade people’s collections. I think if we’re just talking devices...

    No exact clarity on V1 and V2 identification.

    Changes between devices like this actually aren’t a feature specific to certain shells; rather, this kind of change would usually be a standard ROM version difference - this means that any given shell usually has multiple different ROM variants, and often several hardware variants, too. That...

    No exact clarity on V1 and V2 identification.

    Those three are all V1s, aren’t they? I’ve been logging all known shell variations for a few years and unequivocally I can say that all three of these designs were European V1 designs. If there’s some gotcha here and it turns out to be a V2, I have a feeling it could have been some sort of...

    Archiving Tamatown

    Hi all, This is just going to be a brief update because naturally I don't really have any newly recovered files or anything like that to show just yet (working on it!) What I am attempting to do, however, is spread some awareness about how some of these files may be recovered. I think...

    Archiving Tamatown

    Another brief update - I've begun work on a site specifically dedicated to documenting all of what is currently archived of Tamatown. I've got an early version ready to view for those that want to see it, but I'll hold off from posting it publicly until it's a bit more fleshed out. I'm hoping...

    V3 Password Experimentation

    Really glad you like it! --- I've been taking a bit of a break from a lot of this stuff lately - though I was looking at Music Star passwords last summer, I started to hit some roadblocks and eventually my focus was switched to another large-scale project which involved most of my free time...

    Extremely Crazy Easter Egg!

    The Sound Test is also present on a number of the Nano devices :)
