    So a few month ago i got another 3DS XL (Sysnand 9.8), formatted it and linked a NNID to it and connected MiiPlaza and played streetpass plaza games. I collected all 105 pieces of the pre-installed puzzles, but it's now 4 weeks further and i don't recieve any more puzzles then the pre-installed ones :/

    I have a SD in the 3DS, spotpass/streetpass is turned on, everything is the same as on my other 3/2DS systems, but on those i have 14xx pieces to collect even the latest 2DS bought for my kids a month ago got past the 105 pieces, so the older 3DS XL should also have already more then 105 pieces to collect, but no way it does :/ i already resetted the puzzle swap game and started over, but it never get past the 105 pieces :/

    Any help would be nice, without resetting everything

    0 - Don't reset puzzle swap progress, and get all pieces for the pre-installed puzzles.
    1 - Activate spotpass for Mii Plaza, it will only download data for new puzzles through spotpass. You have to activate and let the 3DS on and in sleep mode for some time while connected to internet.
    2 - After your 3DS download the data it will lit the blue led.
    3 - Enter mii plaza and access puzzle swap.
    4 - You will receive a free piece for a new puzzle, since you've finished all the preinstalled ones you will get a piece for a new puzzle downloaded through spotpass.

    When nintendo releases a new puzzle and you get the data for it, you will get a new random free piece. I don't remember if it will always be from a locked puzzle or if it's for any not completed puzzle.

    To open other puzzles:
    - You have to actually obtain a piece of a locked puzzle with someone that already has at least 1 piece of it (only after you have received the actual data for it through spotpass, if you don't have the data you will see that the person have pieces for a puzzle that is greyed out for you).
    - With the 3DS set to do spotpass for mii plaza, eventually Nintendo will send a golden pants Mii to you, he will likely have almost every puzzle with all pieces, you can pick 1 piece from it.


    About pink pieces:
    They may be randomly given when you receive spotpass data for a new puzzle.
    Other than that you can only obtain them when you do streetpass with someone that have them, or from a golden pants mii.

    Sort of off topic but whats the point of puzzle swap besides looking at 3d models when you complete a card?

    None. It's like trading cards.

    Well, it's like, why do someone collect pokémon cards? or stamps?, for me it's like a game, trying to collect all puzzle pieces, something fun to do, take my 3DS on my holiday trips or daytrips and see how many people i meet, then see how many pieces i collected, do the fishing game, the zombie game and all the other ones (except for the garden game, that's not my thing :P )

    Anyway , it's not that of a problem for the 3DS XL, (i have a N3DS and N3DS XL on those it works perfect :) )
    Like Tome said, i already did all those things, even on the site of Nintendo there's a topic about it and how to get it fixed (Go to mii plaza and turn off everything in settings, go back to main menu and turn off your 3DS, wait 5 seconds and turn 3DS back on and enter mii plaza turn on everything again in settings you turned off, wait 5 seconds and close mii plaza, close lid (3DS) or turn it in sleep mode (2DS), it should no work.
    It seems a problem known by Nintendo, some older systems, when everything turned on in mii plaza settings don't get past 105 pieces, turning everything off and back on (like described above) fixes this.
    However, for me it didn't, so it's a pitty that one of the kids just can't do the puzzle collecting like it should be

    (I still haven't tried to format the system again (it used to work before i transfferred everything to the N3DS and made a new NNID for 1 of the kids, so she could use it from then on)

    I like looking at the completed puzzles. It's pretty relaxing, especially the OoT one on a continuous loop. I almost had all of them on my O3DS, but then N3DS came out and Homepass became very cumbersome so I stopped.
