Tamagotchi P's English patch
YES! It's true! you can now change your Tamagotchi P's fully into English! Some of you may already know that I've been working on this project to change the Tamagotchi P's into English and have been waiting a long long time for the 4th and final patch, but for those who just recieved their Tamagotchi P's or are looking to get one.

The Tamagotchi P's was released only in Japan and is completely in Japanese. You can figure out most of the gameplay and have lots of fun with it. But part of the fun is lost because of the many dialogs you won't understand unless you can read Japanese.

On my quest to figure out how the Tamagotchi P's works, I discovered that the program code (brains) inside the Tamagotchi P's is stored in a flash memory chip that can be changed. From that moment on, I started working on making the Tamagotchi P's in English.

The Tamagotchi P's supports downloadable items and some of these items can contain a program for a travel destination or a mini game. I wrote some special travel destinations that apply patches (changes) to the Tamagotchi P's program code (firmware) to change all the Japanese text and graphics into English and even parts of the code to allow for English input. A total of four downloadable patches were needed because of the many changes and the limited download size.

I'm very happy to complete this project after almost two years and wish to thank everyone who have helped in completing this project. On to the next ...
