    Hmm.. I've been trying to decode the QR Code for the extra levels (using the one from Nintendo Life), but no luck so far. Has anyone else tried? Anyone interested? If you look at the QR code, you can see some "miniature versions" of the centering squares (a dot with a white border with a black border). Reading the QR code with a conventional scanner reveals tons of random unreadable characters. Same result if I remove the miniature versions of the "centering squares".

    Aren't you supposed to read those QR codes with the 3DS, from within the game perhaps? I have no idea myself, but it feels like that's the way it should be done :)
    Best of luck!

    Umm, how sure you are that the "random unreadable data" isn't the actual data for the level though?

    I'm actually using zxing to read it. And I will try the making a new QR soon.

    Yeah, they're supposed to be read via the 3DS, but it must be crackable.

    It is the data for the level.

    Oooh, So you want to "crack" the QR codes to insert your own? Sorry I missunderstood :)
    And yeah, Using the QR maker to change a few characters to see the difference I think is the best shot you have.

    Hum. Since it came out in the NA today, I got it.
    What did you use to read and then recode that? Since the characters in it are weird, if I recode the exact same QR the hex dump of it is different.

    I'm using zxing online decoding and PERL GD::Barcode::QRcode module for encoding.

    Can you think of any other encoding software that would work?

    No. The most applications available is capable to encode only standard text or url, but not raw binary data which is used in Pyramids ws well as Mii QR codes.
    Anyway Pyramids levels seems to be protected somehow, maybe even ciphered. One bit change of raw data makes unusable QR code for Pyramids. More levels is needed for complete analysis.

    just some extra info dudes - http://3dsware.nintendolife.com/news/2011/10/interview_enjoy_gaming_pyramids_3ds_eshop

    there's an interview with the coders discussing the game and how they want to work with the community to make QR levels

    also, after finding this post last night and getting curious i found their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/EnjoyGaming where they have in their pictures section some levels and the corresponding QR code underneath.
