At 3:00 PM today, the matchmaker visited my V4. I heard her announcement beep and saw her on the screen. But then just seconds (?) later she disappeared. I didn't press any buttons, and she didn't show me a prospective mate.

Is it normal for her to leave so soon? If I recall correctly, on other models, she stays on the screen for something like 15 minutes.

Hmm... yes, I've noticed that too. I didn't catch the matchmaker on my first generation until it was 7.

Yes it's true. I have 4 V4's running at the moment, and last week I couldn't understand why I was getting the attention beep coming from one of my Tama's- but when I went over to look at them there was no attention icon, no hearts down- nothing- I thought I was imagining it. On one occasion, I went out of the room, and one of my family said to me- the matchmaker just came- but she turned around and went again!
Then it all made sense- I had 'heard' the matchmaker previously- but just never managed to 'catch her'. She does this really new weird swirly eyed thing too- like she is 'on something!'. (on hyper-speed! :O: )

So now if I know she is 'due' I am watching my tama like a hawk! :O:
And now I know that the 'attention beep' and then no sign of anything wrong means I can re-set the clock to 'catch' the speeding granny!

Ok. Thanks.

P.S.

I had a V4 next to an UraTama when the matchmaker came on both. On the UraTama (as on other previous versions) she glides into place, but on the V4 her legs move like a spider's. It's kind of creepy.

you can turn the clock back to 'catch her'... if you just missed her. (I think.) Especially if you literally just missed her, check the time and turn it back a few minutes.

This kinda worked for me 'forcing' her to come. I think I changed the clock to 2:59 and she came at 3:00 (I don't exactly remember the time but I'll look it up and post it).


I didn't like the first two matches she brought, so I kept turning the clock back until I got the match I wanted.

I've done this on the v4 and the v3.

Hope this helps...

I was just grumping about this in my log a little while back! In a way it's kind of nice, so you don't have to go through the whole rejection thing if you don't want your Tama to mate.

This morning the matchmaker came to my Minotchi. He was sitting on the desk right next to me- I heard the attention and looked over and saw the matchmaker 'disappear' without even walking off - just like binary described.

So I got my camera and set it up to macro-film and then re set my clock so I could 'time' her. My video clip is 12 seconds long. The first frame is her coming onto the screen- BEFORE the 'beep' and then she opens her mouth and book a few times and just 'goes'. I estimate her total appearance to be about 10 seconds :O:

P.S. the spidery leg and swirly eyed thing come after you have said yes- but I want this minotchi to marry one of my 'girls' which is why I didn't accept.

:yawn: once mine turned into an adult i kept the sound on and my tama was woth me the whole time but it never beeped and the matchmaker never came then it turned into an oldie and never got married so i figured it must have been paused or something..... so so i was wondering if like yuors would ever beep at certain times?

Legs moving like spider legs? Eh...sounds to me that Bandai made her switch between two frames at incredibly fast speed and she "dragged" across the screen. I haven't seen her on my new one yet, nor can I watch Spudilike's video (my computer's dying), but I'll pay close attention to the screen at her usual arrival times (unless Bandai changed THAT too...)

This sorta thing makes you wander what happened when they were making the V4...it acts more like a knockoff vpet than any other Tamagotch (imo) ><

Is your V4- one of the first wave of designs released in December or second, released last month?
I'm wondering if they've fixed the 'glitch' already on the second batch?

The one this whole topic is about.

The fact that on the V4, the programming for the matchmaker is wrong, and instead of her staying for 10 minutes, she only stays 10 seconds.

I have had TWO more Matchmaker V4 Glitches today.

1. She bought me a Mizutamatchi( yes the toddler :rolly: )as a mate .

It disappeared before I could get my camera.

2. When I did get my camera, and she came back- she bought me a bunch of lines and locked my tama up, forcing me to reset/download.
