    I was wondering if theres some sort of a Mii Streerpass Emulator. I don´t think its too hard to capture data packets from a mii transfering from a 3ds to another, and then reproduce those packets, even mayve edit them.
    Things like getting puzzle pieces, and more important, finding Miis with the needed shirt color would then be possible.
    Just wondering :)

    The streetpass data is probably encrypted.

    Then again why bother?
    It's far more enjoyable to get out once in a while and find other people who have a 3DS.

    Decrypt* 3DS data first, then we can talk Streetpass haxoring. :P

    *That's the hard part.

    Well i understand why x_pike want to do that, he is from Mexico and I think happen the same as here on Colombia, i just find 10 other people with a 3ds, no more (but i think in Mexico is more easy to find other 3ds user), for me is impossible, then a streetpass emulator would be pretty helpful

    I'm out often and rarely see any results.

    I'd actually like to see if an emulator would be possible just so I can get these puzzles finished.

    Isn't it possible to buy puzzle pieces with play coins?

    Certain puzzle pieces cannot be bought and can only be obtained by Streetpass.
    Or was it Spotpass?

    I also think this would be a great project. I live in a small place (so small its called a village) and no one here has any desire to play 3DS as they are all 40+. To be able to emulate another 3DS and send things over streetpass via our PC's would be very handy. Especially for all those damn hats, lol.

    That's a far out longshot in some countries, or even US towns.

    The packets can't be used because the first initiation packet is encrypted...then they start communicating using a different key.
    so it can't be 'copy-pasted', it won't work...

    I have 11 on my 3DS, but I've only just recently started taking it out with me. I get hits every now and again, maybe one per week.

    Although we couldn't have a machine pretending to be a 3DS, I wonder if we could create something that allows long-range street passing over the Internet. Something like that wouldn't need to decrypt the data, for example you would have 3DS A, Access Point A, 3DS B and Access Point B. 3DS A sends out its broadcast message in search of other 3DS devices, Access Point A captures this broadcast and duplicates it, sending it over the Internet to Access Point B, which repeats the same broadcast. 3DS B picks up the broadcast and replies to Access Point B, which sends the reply to 3DS A via Access Point A.

    I imagine this should be possible, but I think you'd need extra networking devices like a WiFi dongle and perhaps a custom driver. Probably too much hassle for anyone with the skills to be bothered anyway.

    Unless you live in a country where even on one of the biggest train stations in the country, you still get zero hits.

    Yes, but only on puzzles you've started and since the recent update, only for non-purple squares.

    My trouble is that I've completed the puzzles I have, but I still have at least one, maybe two of the old puzzles I can't start until I get a StreetPass hit, and now I have the new puzzles with pieces that can only be received on StreetPass.

    The other frustrating thing is that I have had a couple of hits since then, but they've been with people that didn't have any pieces I could use.

    Kinda reminds me of XlinkKai, a program that let you play with other PSP users over the net in Ad-Hoc mode. So in theory, it shouldn't be TOO hard. Decrypting the info is the first step however. After that, the rest SHOULD be easy.
