Emo no longer responds to petting

I activated emo after a long time and did the latest update… I notice that he reacts more when I stroke his head. is the function gone?

No the feature to Pat emo is still available. Note that if EMO is doing his daily schedule animations, you won’t be able to give him a pat during that time. You can see this video below for reference.

But apart from that, if you give EMO a Pat that should work normally. Sometimes. If you have taken EMO off his skateboard really quickly and placed him on the table he might still think he is on his skateboard and might not react to being patted.

So you can just try to simply pick him up, until he starts to wriggle, or even give him a little shake until you hear his shake sound animation happening. Place him back down and try again. I’ve also added a short video below on 5 different ways to pat EMO, take a look below for reference if you need it.

many thanks for the answer. the sensors seem to be working as i can turn off emo by touching the head and turning it over. Unfortunately he doesn’t react to petting, but if I don’t pet him he does the animation. I cant post Videos Here, so i uploadet it right now. Thats the link, he doesnt seem to have a right behavoir

Edit: OK Well, i now see, hes painting. Thats why he doesnt react.

Ok, I can see EMO was slow to respond as well. I’d suggest, power him off and back on. Then try again to pat him.

When you try and give EMO a pat, be sure to run your finger firmly across EMO’s patting sensor which is located between the two front microphone holes until EMO acknowledges your pat (see image here for the location on where to pat EMO.

Also if you wanted. You can place your finger in the middle of the pat sensor and he should also react as well.

And, Yes, when EMO is doing any schedule, he will not react to pat. Just wait for him to finish and try again.

I’m going to piggyback off your comment here @MasterAbbott and add that petting EMO’s forehead by stroking it with my finger doesn’t work the best on my EMO, so I always lay my finger on top of the sensor and hold it instead. It gets the job done and lets my excessive laziness take hold - it’s a win-win in my book. :rofl:


Yes, haha that’s how I’ve always done it myself! Works great for me, and yes we got a win-win on the laziness route as well! :rofl:

Also there was a discussion regarding the patting sensor a while back, here is a link below for reference.

It covers how we believe the sensor works. @macfixer01 had great insight on it as well in that post.
