You're welcome, you did most of the work, so I was happy to just put the finishing touches on it. :) Bluecake (talk) 16:37, August 19, 2014 (UTC)

Corner Shop Images
hi, can you tell me how you got the corner shop images?
I've gotten a couple sprites from game screenshots. For example, I found this screenshot on the wiki, and I used a basic paint program to clean up around Mademoiselle Coco's sprite. I just erased the area all around her sprite so that only the sprite was left. Then I saved it as a .png file, and here it is. And if I'm just getting a screenshot and not a sprite, then I just do a screen capture. Bluecake (talk) 00:22, October 24, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you, I really appreciate your help! I was so confused by that before. Bluecake (talk) 23:15, November 15, 2014 (UTC)
UraTama character list
- No problem. Thank you for adding the obtaining details, that's pretty important. I might make a shell list, I saw OsuMesu21's example for the Tamagotchi Mini, and it looks pretty neat. Thank you for the link, it looks useful. Bluecake (talk) 15:16, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
- Although, I was actually just about to start on a shell list for the Keitai Kaitsuu/Akai, so I might be preoccupied with that first. But I'll keep this in mind. Bluecake (talk) 15:19, December 23, 2014 (UTC)
- ==Hanerutchi 2==
Lemitchi and Remitchi
Several characters on the Hanerutchi 1 had their age changed on the Hanerutchi 2 though. Tetsuyatchi, for example. So I don't think that really matters. It's true that there are some differences in the artwork...again, that's true for the other characters as well. I don't know, I'm still skeptical but I really don't know. It just strikes me as bizzare to have a character with the same on 2 models which are closely related. I realize some Tamagotchis have conflicting names, but I don't think it's happened with models this closely related. Bluecake (talk) 19:01, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
So I double-checked, and I really, really think it's the same character, and spelled Remitchi. First, while it's true that L's and R's and exchangeable, the name is actually spelled like this: (澪美っち). It's kanji, not katakana, meaning that it's a traditional name instead of borrowed from English. Lemitchi is very unlikely because L's are not part of the Japanese native tongue. And I basically mentioned this before, but the same IS used for both the Hanerutchi and the Hanerutchi 2. I feel like the name "Lemitchi" came from Tamatalk...and although I think Tamatalk is a good source, in this case I trust Japanese sources more than English sources, because names especially can be mangled during translation. I found a few errors with other names, like Kajikuchi was mistranslated as Kajiguchi, and Harumitchitchi was supposed to be Harumichitchi (chitchi, instead of tchitchi). So it's not unlikely that the name was mistranslated. Bluecake (talk) 19:26, January 2, 2015 (UTC)
Why use anime artwork for infoboxes?
Can I ask why you move the anime artwork from the anime section up into the infobox and put them in the front of the tabber? Personally, I'd would say that the original artwork be put up as the first tabber rather than being behind the anime artwork. Because after all, Tamagotchi is a virtual pet franchise, right? Practically I think we should keep to the franchise's main roots by ensuring the blue-lined artwork are the front aesthetics. What's your view on my assumption? ---TacticalMaster (talk) 12:06, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
- Actually, that was my thought too. I usually associate the blue-line style style first. I didn't start using the tabbers for images until a little while ago, and I noticed that the infoboxes that already used them put the anime artwork first. I felt that the infoboxes should mainly be consistent so I followed those examples. But I did also wonder why the anime artwork came first. I hadn't given it much thought though. Bluecake (talk) 14:11, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
- It was my idea to use the anime artwork as the primary images for the pages. I made this decision because, from how the Japanese and American web sites are laid out, the "blue line" artwork is being phased out and the anime artwork is becoming the new primary art of the franchise. The Japanese site uses the blue-line style sparingly now, and the American website doesn't feature it at all. Additionally, for many characters, the blue-line style artwork is either too small to be used as a decent primary image (like Righttchi or Charatchi), or it simply does not exist at all (like Mamapianitchi or Chuukatchi). Osumesu21 (talk) 17:31, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
- Those are good points. I have noticed that nearly all the video games coming out now use the anime style too. I feel that either style can work as the default, so I'll just go with what the admins agree on. Bluecake (talk) 21:02, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
- Err. I guess you make a good point Osumesu. Looks as if the franchise is now heavily dependent on the modern anime universe now. Cause its universe now continues to expand more and more nowadays. ---TacticalMaster (talk) 23:07, January 14, 2015 (UTC)
You're welcome, I'll work on that file next.
There are quite a few programs that have a transparency option, but I think maybe you're asking how to turn non-sprite images into sprites? For the octopus image, for example, I'd be converting it to an image that represents the actual pixel size, like I did with some of the Hanerutchi sprite images. For that, I just redraw the image pixel for pixel. It's...simple, but a little tedious I suppose. I don't really know of any other ways of doing it though. You could try asking around at Tamatalk, it seems like there are quite a few people there who have sprite images for growth charts and the like, so they might know of some alternative methods.
As for recreating sprites pixel for pixel, any paint program with a transparency option would work, I think. At the moment I'm using an old, outdated program called Paint Shop Pro 5, which can probably be downloaded from somewhere on the Internet, but I'd be cautious about finding a trustworthy source. GIMP would probably work, I haven't used it much, but it seems pretty similar in many respects. I know that it can be used to work in pixel size and it supports transparent backgrounds. It can also be downloaded for free from the official site at http://www.gimp.org/downloads/.
Thank you for checking the edit I made, I forgot to verify it. I have since gone back to the page and fixed the redirect properly.
- No problem, glad to see it's working now :) Bluecake (talk) 15:53, September 15, 2015 (UTC)
- Well, if you want to use romaji that's fine, but you need to change more than just a c to a k. The proper romaji version is keki, because Japanese people write 'cake' like this: ケーキ (with the katakana symbols for ke and ki). So if you'd like to keep it Japanese, I think you should change it to that.
I have a favor to ask
Could you scale and up into 32×32 pixels, keeping the transparency and the crispness of the pixels? (The second image is 14×16 pixels, first it must be turned into 16×16.) —umbreon126 21:58, October 4, 2015 (UTC)
- Sure. [[File:Mametchi_Sprite_32x32.png]] [[File:SpMameNew_32x32.png]] Bluecake (talk) 22:43, October 4, 2015 (UTC)
All this character sprites..!
I thought i liked to pride myself at being able to dig into this decade old geocities to find all this character artwork- but you- youre something else!
if youd be fine disclosing, where is it you find all this artwork! the vintage and modern character sprites , poses, emotions, yknow- all that. Im making a little project of ~2004 era tama media and im sure these sites (or whatever they are!) would b really helpful!
thanks so much for all your contributions~!
- All of the artwork I get is from official Tamagotchi sites, mainly http://tamagotch.channel.or.jp/, the official Japanese website. Most of the stuff on the main page is for the modern releases, but the webpages for older virtual pets are still there, they just might be harder to find.
Also, archived webpages are useful. While the American websites for older Tamagotchi releases are mostly gone, you can still find "saved" versions of them on the Web Archive site. For example, a website that was active through roughly 2004-2010 is available here:
It should be noted that not everything looks or functions as it should. Archived webpages can have this problem, where some features of the site don't save properly. But if you want to visit a website from around 2004, this can do it for you.
I appreciate your enthusiasm about Tamagotchis, hopefully you find what you need for your project. :) Bluecake (talk) 16:26, January 18, 2016 (UTC)
Really like your page. Neutral Either (Neutral Either)
Hi, this is Nigel Danh and i saw Po a fanmade character and tell to some candidate for delete that fanmade character ouf of that page.
- Hi, I see what you're talking about. A notice has already been added to the page, marking it as candidate for deletion. I can't do much more since I'm not an admin of this wiki, only admins are capable of deleting pages. I'm sure one of the admins will see and take care of it though. Umbreon126 and TacticalMaster are both admins and still active here from time to time. Bluecake (talk) 21:18, January 15, 2018 (UTC)
excuse me, bluecake.
i want to know where the 3d render of kikitchi originally came from
- Ah, gee...I wish I knew the answer, unfortunately I'm drawing a blank right now because I uploaded that a few years ago. If I find out where that came from, I'll definitely let you know. Bluecake (talk) 02:25, August 15, 2019 (UTC)
I have a question
APOLOGY for VANDALISM
It's me, JustinFinal. What I want to do is APOLOGIZE for VANDALISM on the WIKI. My alternate account was MIJUJT WIKIKI, but he is now CLOSED by user choice. He vandalized a few pages on this wiki.
Pages he vandalized:
- Tamagotchi TV
He is my alternate account, so I'd like to apologize. I am SO sorry and I PROMISE I'll NEVER do it AGAIN! This has caused STRESS and ANXIETY in me.
It bugged me until I checked the edit summary for Tamagotchi TV. It wasn't so serious. Kuchipatchi vandalism is still bugging me. I don't wanna check. I hope you will forgive me (and warn me too.)
- As long as the vandalism has been undone, I'm not really worried about it. Um, on a side note, I'm not an admin on this wiki or anything like that, so while you're free to let me know about these things, I'm probably not the ideal person to talk to about this kind of stuff. I'm also not really active on this wiki at the moment. Occasionally I think about coming back here to edit more, but I'm not really sure what I could add. Anyways, I hope you have a good day, and I don't think you should have anything to worry about as long as the vandalism doesn't continue.
