    This is a tool that, when run, will download and decrypt and extract the PNGs for every badge in Nintendo's Badge Arcade.

    Note: Decryption requires you to be running a copy of my crypto server on a 3ds on your local network, and for you to edit the TryDecryptBOSS function in NetworkUtils.cs to point at that 3ds. Decryption cannot avoid networking through a 3DS without the BOSS key from bootrom, which has not been publically dumped.

    The first time this is run, it will generate a ~3 MB log file as it extracts every badge ever added to the arcade.

    On future runs, it will only download/decrypt if there are new badges you haven't already downloaded, and will only log the new ones.

    Source is available on my github.

    Note: This tool has a lot of setup requirements, and as such it's only really reasonable to expect devs to be able to make use of it.

    Does anyone know if a full set of badges have been dumped, and made public?

    Not asking for links (I'm pretty sure it couldn't be shared here), just confirmation and a point in the general direction.

    Alright, so there is a new fork of this which is easy to use and doesn't need the crypto server.
    You just extract this zip to a folder with boot9.bin and it will download all the badges

    Awesome, thank you!

    Oh! I didn't realise that thread was alive. I figured it would have been deleted by mods long ago.

    Just got buried, but I think the thread has the most up to date collection of badges.
