    Your question is patronizing. It takes more than being good at writing homebrew for people to solve your problems for you. They also have to have the time, interest and patience to solve your problems for you. Of course there are many people who are good at writing homebrew, but they're not around to be free advice and code vending machines.

    So, uh, crazy idea... Have you considered just posting the actual problem you're having here instead of creating a thread to PM a single person and then asking them for help.
    Seriously, that earlier message where I said "PM me"... All I was going to do was post your PM into this thread because doing this via PM instead of on an open forum where people can see your issue and solution and learn from it is really incredibly stupid.

    I didn't mean it to be .-. I didn't make it to be like that at all... I only started this stuff about a week ago... This is a forum, a community where people go for help... I'm asking for help so I'm using this forum... There's a thing called good deed...

    ._. But I had already made a thread about what needs solving... I had only 1 reply... I was asking if there was anyone who would consider helping me so I could discuss it via PM...

    What did you want. I write homebrew, no promises but if I think it could be useful/fun I might do it.

    I thought this was the spirit of making homebrews, helping each other and stuff you know, that's how it's done, anyone who participates do it for free and for others,...

    I was writing a homebrew that let the user control robots via Pi-RC. I was hoping to get a json parser working so I could read these files: https://github.com/bskari/pi-rc/tree/master/control-specs

    The idea was that the user could load a .json from the SD card and send the commands to Pi-RC. If I had the json parser working, I could've adapted it to have more features, configurations etc.

    https://gist.github.com/lavanoid/98c2fb211fae4286bf5c << -- This is what I currently have written.
    https://github.com/roxas75/rxTools/commit/7e33116e35d05d7816d9438dd64d90d97cf6da91 << -- I tried studying this, to see if I could get it working.
    http://zserge.com/jsmn.html << -- I tried teaching myself but a lot of it doesn't make much sense to me as I'm not experienced in C
    http://codereview.stackexchange.com/questions/28986/more-efficient-way-to-retrieve-data-from-json << -- More research
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/adding-jsmn-to-my-homebrew-need-help.395496/ << -- I made a post about it but no one helped solve the main problem :(

    Thank you for the offer.

    Never did anything JSON related with the 3DS so can't help you there, I have to go back to school on monday :( so also don't have enough time to study this further. I might look into it tomorrow, if I find something you'll hear from me here, if not I 1. did not have time or 2. didn't find anything (that works).
    Idk why people would be pissed for you asking this.

    Try the homebrew development thread, maybe someone over there can help you/point in the right direction.

    This is exactly what I thought too, if you don't have the time to help others, fine no problem. But don't start complaining if someone wants help! (Though people asking for a ps1 emulator is getting old, but this is different as this is not asking someone to dedicate half there life to make something that probably won't run that well XD)

    The only project that I know that uses a json parser, is rxTools (which I tried to study since I'm a complete beginner at C). json files are essentially configuration files :)

    Thank you! :D

    Thanks for the tip. I'll be sure to check that over if MRJP has no luck :)

    I know what a JSON file is XD.
    http://pastebin.com/2b6U84pW
    JSMN example, with some extra comments. Hope this will help you! Me best advice is just to try to port this code to the 3DS first (using the console (ctrulib) to output the data, if you got that working then try it in the way you want for your homebrew.)

    I've also seen XML files being used by HB_MENU (some homebrew even need it if I remember correctly, it tells HB_MENU how to launch it or something to that extend.) You might want to use that instead of json for configurations (only if JSON really doesn't work out).

    Thank you :) I'll be sure to do just that, once it's ready. Hoping to add touch screen controls and a few other nifty things such as control over RaspberryPi GPIO pins :D

    Touch is easy (do note that the X and Y are "normal" so 0,0 is top left).
