    Hi,

    For all of you who's having a really hard time to get streetpass game data for bravely default or any other games using the streetpass relay feature, here's a easy fix!

    I believe the reason Bravely Default streetpass game data doesn't always get transfered using the streetpass relay is because there's too much data that needs to be transfered (6 mii's + all puzzles, etc). What I did to help limit the data that had to be transfered is that I disabled streetpass data for the Mii plaza. I started getting streetpass data for Bravely Default afterwards. You can disable Mii plaza game data using this proceedure:

    What to Do:

    2. Tap "Data Management," and then "StreetPass Management."
    3. Select Mii plaza software title from the list, then tap "Deactivate StreetPass."
    4. Tap "OK."

    Good Luck!

    This is funny because I had the same issue a few months ago and finally tried this back then and it worked. I had the Homepass method set up on my Virtual Windows XP and my brother and friend were having trouble getting Streetpass data for it. I tried everything and couldn't figure it out. I tried disabling every other Streetpass function and they finally started getting villagers. I would definitely try this if everything else fails.

    Out of curiosity: what MAC cycle frequency did/do you use?

    Not sure about aresius16, but I think I usually set it to cycle every 50-60 seconds. Worked fine for me.

    I use the Ubuntu manual method. I cycle mac using a command prompt manually every 30 secs or so. Even if I slowed down the cycling, I still could not get any BD game data. Perhaps it's my laptop wireless card which isn't able to send all the data in the amount of time the 3ds takes to receive the data? I just know I wasn't the only one with this issue. Hence the reason I decided to post my little discovery/fix. Hopefully it will help someone!
