I'm pissed off about not being able to buy the Amiibos I want to use in Smash Bros. because of limited availability and money-hungry scalpers.

Is it possible to hack or reprogram/replace the rfid chip on Amiibos? Or how about cloning the unique character data on the rfid chips from Amiibos and making our own rfid chips to use?

I found this link but haven't read through it fully.

The unreleased amiibo in smash thing was do from an emulated gamepad afaik. Doesn't have anything to do with real amiibos.
The chip used on it isn't hacked (unlike some other cheap ones). Unless you have the keys you won't be able to read/write it.

At this point, I wouldn't be bothered too much. Their use in games is relatively small and all you get is Nintendo under your tail if you release something like that.
I still hope there will be something available once Nintendo has ceased making those NFC chips so that content can be accessed without spending crazy amount of money on ebay.

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.

    @BigOnYa My most-hated game on the NES was gilligan's island. Couldn't figure out the controls. Played it on actual hardware. Super frustrating, and boring as shit.
