I was encouraged by lobb that I should be brave and publish my petz coding projects (I have a few going on right now), so I made a GitHub Repo for my Petzy Projects found here: github.com/kyokichi
The first petzy program is thanks to research found out by Reflet on Yabiko. This program will tell you what your petz favorite color(s) and flavor(s) are! The entire coding project is open source, written in Java. I'm a bit shy about how I write code haha but maybe if it helps anyone I'll be excited! Thanks to shaina @ kizmet for testing it out and giving me feedback.
Instructions are found on the page but I'll reproduce below: 1) Download the PetzChecker.jar found on github.com/kyokichi/PetzChecker/releases 2) Put PetzChecker.jar file in a folder with the .pet file(s) you want to check. 3) Double-click the PetzChecker.jar file. Or use a command line and type: java -jar "PetzChecker.jar" 4) The output is petzfavorites.txt which is a tab delimited text file, each line is your pet's name and their preferences (color(s) and flavor(s) only). 5) Import/Copy the text to a database or spreadsheet.
I'll update it when I feel the need to fix/update code. Feel free to use my applications and reply here to let me know how they work (or if you have any suggestions for more projects!). Also let me know if you have any questions!

Well where'd my Java go? LOL Thank you. x'DDD
EDIT: IT WORKS! (of course it does, I'm just an idiot who somehow lost Java LOL)
This is so cool! And I can probably have it run and check a pretty hefty sized profile too and get all my answers at once...ahhh!! Me and my sister are super excited for this! Thank you so so much for sharing with everyone!! <3
My smaller 'testing things out' profile got these results,
Abayori red yellow fish wet Gramnel yellow blue fish cheese Kesimo green yellow beef Lola green cheese Meadowview green yellow beef bone Mikara green yellow beef Nahi red chicken milk soft water Nelna red chicken milk soft water Rozu red blue wet cheese
Somehow that last one amused me...with nothing in between them, it sounds like Rozu prefers wet cheese. Yuck. LOL!!
Oops. Lola isn't mine...she's a hexie for someone else. But now her favorites are out there. xDD Nahi and Nelna are siblings and their likes match PERFECTLY!
I'm probably gonna be playing with this a lot tonight x'DDD THANK YOU!!
All the jokes about flavors being "wet soft water" are great but I think it's legitimately confusing. So I updated the output to be a bit easier to understand. I used the adjectives that were found here: secretpetz.neocities.org/research.html
0 Tastes like chicken 1 Beef, dog food 2 Fish, cat food 3 Wet food (Leftovers, red food bowl) 4 Milk 5 Candy and popcorn 6 Catnip 7 Cheese 8 Shiny and colorful 9 Squeaky chewy toy 10 Soft and fluffy inedible things (Update 04/09/22: Recent research in the petz hacking community suggests this may be mouse flavor! 11 Bones 12 Mostly wooden things 13 Metal, jewels 14 Water 15 ??? (Shells and a few other things) (Update 04/09/22: I think this is a dry, hard, dusty flavor. Shells, bones, fossils, coconut shells. Also the petz 4 dlc vacuum cleaner, for some reason.) 17 ??? (Hair ball and flea spray) 23 Chemical smells (and pirate skull for some reason... alcohol???) 24 Garbage (glass bottles, bag of coal) 26 ??? (The outside of the flea bottle) 27 Plants (seeds and jack o lantern) 28 Cardboard box
A second petzy program I started working on is something I wanted to do but I really don't see this being useful to a ton of people outside of like myself.
Basically, when you convert Petz from P5 to P4, they lose the ability to do left/right tricks. I probably only have a few petz who suffer from this fate, but it's annoying me. I thought I'd write a little program that would fix this and it's still a work in progress. I was able to successfully fix a cat and dog! But I will need to test this with more petz first haha
Right now, Nibbles (from Ratqueen ) can do Left/Right tricks! But.... I did something wrong... hahaha
I used this spreadsheet to help me write the following update to the Trick Fixing program-- Version 1,,, which doesn't fix tricks yet. Haha! Right now it just reads the Trick Section of a pet and gives you the following information (saved in a .csv file with that pet's name): -- the name of the trick, -- the version of the game it detected the trick is from, -- the treat flavor the trick is stored in, -- the in-game gesture, -- and then 5 integers the game stores for the tricks (plan ID, action ID, direction, angle, association)
You'll need Java to use this program. And understanding of how to use a command line.
To run the project from the command line, go to the folder and type the following:
Hi everyone! It's been a year and two days since I decided to pick this project up again (wow it's been that long???)
I wasn't a fan of my code from the previous version so I decided to change it up and now I've gotten it to work for actually fixing Petz' broken trick sections! Currently, it fixes the trick section of a pet to version 4 of the game (I'm not sure if other people care about other versions for me to make it work for others? feel free to change my mind and post below! 😝)
I'm currently looking for anyone who would like to help me out with testing or has any comments and/or concerns with how their petz perform tricks, etc. so I know what my program should fix :)
Features in This Release: -- Right now it only fixes petz for version Petz 4. -- Has a spreadsheet for *each* pet in the directory before fixing and after, so you can check that data if you'd like. -- Put the jar in the directory with a bunch of pet files and it will batch update them all. -- This release of the program does NOT recalculate and update the checksum, so please download and use PetzByte from Yabiko until I add that to the program
I would really love it if people could test this and let me know if it works!
Alex@Marvel: Thankfully yes, I'd be very sad if the PC completely disappeared.

Echotooth: Hey, how do I get custom titles here? Do I have to be a mod or something?
Aug 24, 2023 10:52:25 GMT -5
Sue: If I remember correctly, it’s after a certain number of posts… been a while, so I can’t remember the details.
Aug 25, 2023 4:48:26 GMT -5
✬MsWildiful✬: What Sue said is true. It depends on how many posts you've made here. You'll go from Petz petter to Petz trainer to God, etc. I'm not sure how many posts are required for each title though.
Sept 17, 2023 10:09:46 GMT -5
Alex@Marvel: I believe Echo was asking about custom titles, not the regular ranks. I looked and I can't find it right offhand to answer your question.
Sept 17, 2023 17:34:09 GMT -5
Star ★: We offer them out for various reasons, you don't need to be a particular rank or anything like that but warning levels or past warnings are taken into account depending on when they were how long and how active you are etc.

kk: I am so excited to see people still playing! I haven't had a computer in years but managed to hold on to a handful of my pets from 2003. 20 years later I am finally playing again.

Sue: ^ Love this! Welcome back 😃
Oct 5, 2023 4:08:34 GMT -5
littledoe: I'm about to start playing again as well! So much nostalgia

Aeldrius: Hey Im back! Life has been chaos past few years and I havent been able to play, but Im back playing petz again and I miss the community.
Nov 1, 2023 1:35:33 GMT -5
Breeze: No idea if anyone remembers me... I put petz on to have something to distract me while I'm doing NaNoWriMo, so figured I should say hello to the community again ^^;
Nov 4, 2023 20:01:25 GMT -5
Sue: *waves* Hi Breeze, welcome back! How good to see you! =D
Nov 24, 2023 17:32:33 GMT -5
Breeze: Hello Sue! Good to see you too
Nov 26, 2023 18:51:23 GMT -5
Echotooth: Glad people are returning! I haven't really played petz recently but I still scroll around the forums when I can!

koshatkamusya: Hi guys, who knows the sites where you can download clothes for petz 5 except petz 5 ru and mythicsilense
Dec 4, 2023 9:16:32 GMT -5
Alex@Marvel: The best place for a question like that is petz talk and help, especially since links aren't allowed in the shoutbox. Making a post makes it easier for people to find and answer you as well. ^^
