Welcome to my download page, where I host various files you may find useful. You can click one of the links here to jump to various items on this page.
NOTE FOR ALL OF MY UTILITIES:
You need the Microsoft .NET Framework Runtime version 4.6.2 or higher in order to run them.

Original Petz game/files
Neglect-Me-Not v1.0 (Mass un-neglect tool)
The full Petz 4 game, complete with PetzA.
PETZ 4 FULL GAME
Unzip the file using 7zip, Winrar, or a similar program into
C:\Users\you\My Documents. It should extract a folder called Petz 4 (Vanilla). You can rename it to simply Petz 4 if you want. Go into the folder and locate Petz 4.exe. Right click and select "Create shortcut". Put the shortcut on the desktop, and you're done!
There's no need to install PetzA. I already patched the game with it, so it should be there when you run it.
Please download the Windows version and run the game via Wine.
According to a Mac user in the community, the game doesn't need to be Winebottled anymore. My Mac is too old to stay up-to-date, so unfortunately I can't provide tech support with it. If you have trouble, please ask on a Petz forum (such as RKC or Whiskerwick).
A utility for converting a Petz 5 pet into a Petz 4 format. You can view pet info and convert multiple pets at once. Note that you can't convert pets who are pregnant/have dependents.
Ever wondered what genes your pet was carrying? Need a surefire way to tell what looks will pass on to its offspring? Look no further! Simply open a .pet file with this tool and watch the magic happen.
This tool does NOT write any data.
It is for viewing genetics only.
How it works
Open any .pet file via the Pick A Pet button. GenePoolz will find your pet's genome and display both the dominant and recessive genes hidden there! No more guessing at traits!
You can also hover over any color to get the exact LNZ number for it, like so:
Place this .exe file in a folder with pets, and Neglect-Me-Not will find all of your neglected pets and un-neglect them. Note that if you haven't started your Petz game for the day, some pets may gain 10 neglect upon starting the game.
Both P3/4-format and P5-format pets are acceptable.
It's a console application, it just does its thing and exits, so it doesn't have an interface. You may see the console window flash up briefly before closing itself, that's normal. It has text that says:
Neglect-Me-Not v1.0 by Reflet@Yabiko
Now negating the neglect values of all pets in this folder. If you haven't started your Petz game today, some pets may gain 10 neglect upon starting the game.
Please wait, this window will close by itself once it finishes.
If there are any errors, Neglect-Me-Not will print a warning message and skip over the file in question.
This is a simple Python script that will recalculate the checksum of any .pet file.
Simply drag and drop the file onto PetzByte, and watch the magic happen.
NOTE: Python 3 is required.
Any hexed breedz I create will be put up for download here. As with any hexer's work, do not claim my work as your own or distribute on your site, unless I give my expressed written permission. Other than that, have fun!
HMMM... THERE'S SOMETHING ANNOYING ABOUT THIS BREED. BUT I CAN'T QUITE PLACE MY FINGER ON IT... THEN MY PLACE MY WHOLE HAND ON IT... THEN PET IT AFFECTIONATELY...
Comes complete with dog residue.
PETZ FILE ICONS
While poking around inside Petz 4's exe, I came across some images that appear to be icons of various Petz file types (.pet, .clo, etc). Here they are if you want to set them up as file icons on your computer.
Additionally, you can save the images above and below, in .png format and rescaled to 128x128 from their original 32x32 for whatever you might want to use them for.
Associating icons with their file types (Windows)
This process is very simple. First, download File Types Manager from here and run it. The download links are near the bottom of the page.
Once you've opened the program, go to Edit > New File Extension. Simply type in .pet or whichever file extension you're working with, and next to the "Default Icon" field, hit the [...] button and then hit [Browse...].
At this point, you can navigate to wherever you saved the .ico files (I recommend putting them in the folder with your Petz.exe!) and there you go! Now, instead of using blank default icons, Petz file types will have their own unique icons.
The only exceptions to the instructions above are .cat and, if you have Tinker, .toy. You'll need to find them in the file list (you can hit the "Extension" tab to sort alphabetically or reverse-alphabetically). Once you locate them, right-click and hit "Edit Selected File Type". From there, it's the same process of associating an icon. That's it!
Please contact me if the download links/files are broken or if there is some otherwise fatal flaw with anything on this page. You may also use this form to ask questions if you have read all of my instructions and are still confused. I won't answer if you didn't read!
...you can also say hi if you want, lol, those make me smile
