Just stick some PNGs on your SD card and run this, that's all there is to it. Should still work even if you've never run Badge Arcade.

It should work on all firmwares 9.0 and above. Menuhax will not be affected.

EDIT: Sorry, requirement is actually 9.3.

Works alright! But beware, people who already have medals gotten in the game. They are all wiped out!

Edit: By the way, a question for the OP. Would it be possible to have the tool put the file's name to the badge instead of only getting "Custom Badge" for every medal?

If I knew a little bit of C, I would look into it, but sadly I'm a noob at 3DS homebrew development.

Edit 2: Okay, nevermind. It seems entering the Nintendo Badge Arcade app deletes your data, and recreates it with the badges you had. I'll prefer to use this homebrew, instead, anyway!

As far as i know, the badge arcarde app rewritres the sd data ONLY if you go to check your badges collection.

As for this tool, it looks and sounds awesome! I'll try it later :)

Mrcheeze says this will work on down to 9.0.

When I run the app, everything seems to go fine but there's no sign of the badges.
What do I have to do first to get this to work? He claims installing badge arcade isn't necessary.

Well, since you've never used badge arcade, you may not know... to actually place badges, you open the home menu settings in the top left.

Anyway. I updated with Olmec's suggestion to set the badge names to whatever their filenames were, instead of just Custom Badge. Same links will work.

Just wondering, do you know if nintendo badge arcade really rewrites all of your badges data deleting the badges you had? That makes me feel a bit afraid of testing this, since i already injected a lot of custom badges and i can still get new ones in the app...

That option isn't shown on 9.2 home menu though. (I have a current 3ds with badge arcade so I know how it works)

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
