    Server Off (will change between on and off) - Look here!
    Server will be back online in a few days!


    Ptrk25 has basically taken over the project. I am willing to admit I have done nothing for the past couple weeks. I'm thinking of demoting my self to PR as clearly i am not needed. However, this will give me more time to work on OSU 3DS. I am stepping down. I will still have some form of involvement i just don't know what. I need to take a break, freshen up my skills and tackle my own projects. If you have any further questions please ask Ptrk25. This is to much for me. It was foolish to go into a big project on the start. However, because of that i have also learned so much more then i would of not going in on a big project. I'll be back on the scene in the next couple months. PM me if you have questions about my leave. Thank you all for using my project.

    How to use?
    Currently we're still developing pictochat3DS,
    This is just an early beta release to test the capabilities of the first server.
    The server may crash/restart at any moment.
    In the future you'll be able to do much more,
    But currently you can just chat using it.

    Now that we have clarified that, lets begin.
    • Download pictochat3DS in the download link below
    • Unpack your download in the 3DS folder of your SD card.
      • (location pictochat.3dsx: drive:/3ds/pictochat3DS/pictochat3DS.3dsx)
    • Boot into the homebrew menu using your favorite method.
    • Find and start pictochat3DS.
    • If the server is available it will prompt you for a message to enter your username and press A
      • (if no message appears, or an error, the server is down, or you don't have internet connection)
    • You'll get a message that you're connected, and you can send messages using the A button.
    • Pressing start shutdown pictochat3DS and brings you back to the homebrew menu.

    Keep in mind that this is a work in progress please.

    Possible errors
    • please report to me if you get a black screen on boot.
      • Never experienced this
    • Boot but no messages? server is busy, and has no time for you
      • Should be fixed
    • Get an actual error message on boot?
      • Server is offline
    • Once connected, but you get error messages when trying to send a message?
      • Server went offline after you connected
      • You lost internet connection
      • Server kicked you out for unknown reason
    • Pictochat3DS crashes at the 501th message
      • I just don't make more room for messages, i know i should

    About custom clients

    A lot of people have made their own custom client by now.
    Including some of the testers, and the devs.
    We've decided that we'll allow this as long as it won't become a problem.

    Thanks to VegaRoXas & Chesta, you can find a custom client for windows here:
    Pictochat3D custom client
    Thanks to Ptrk25, you can find a custom client for windows, mac and linux here:

    You guys actually came through with this, I had a feeling it was vaporware. Great job to @Tjessx and @Red3agle!

    Opened pictochat 3ds and it doesn't say anything. I guess this is what "Server unstable" means ;)

    EDIT: Tried to send a text, it says ERROR writing to socket
