    Playcoins are used in the streetpass games. If you haven't passed anyone you can use them to hire miis to play for you or to buy puzzle pieces.

    I want to download this, but... I worked hard on those puzzles. I can't cheat!

    That being said, very cool! Well done!

    Okay, thanks Kelton2 and ChrisRX idk if I'll be needing this app then.


    Actually, it never hurts to make playcoins. I guess I'll get it anyway.

    I edited the thread title to add [Homebrew].
    that's the current way some devs are using to mark released projects.

    I'll see if we can have an official tag for released homebrew.

    So we can't edit this and make it like 1000 or something?

    Hey very well done, I'm quite impressed!
    Now the next step is to put in streetpass miis that you can get from a homebrew app right?

    Yes. Actually, you can try it out yourself... right now, if you look at the source for playcoin.c, it edits filebuffer[0x4] and filebuffer[0x5], which 3dbrew documents as being the offsets for the play coin count in gamecoin.dat. By modifying it so that offsets 0xC - 0xF are edited instead, the step count can be changed.

    Alternatively, use the precompiled version to extract gamecoin.dat, and use a hex editor to manually change the stepcount.

    Probably not updates, but otherwise yes.

    This isn't actually based on the SDK play coin setter. I just borrowed the name.

    The home menu automatically resets it to 300 if it's any higher, yes.

    Yeah... I was kinda lazy with this since I can't really see any use case not covered by 300/10/0.

    3dbrew mention that if coin.dat is corrupted, the system menu refuse to launch (calling svcBreak).
    to fix it, it only requires you to delete the file from your SD card? or do you need to make a backup first to restore it in case of need?

    I haven't tested the claims of bricking, for obvious reasons. I don't know whether it's still an issue on the current system version, but if it is, neither this app nor messing with the SD card will help in any way to undo it.
