    I bought my N3ds 5 days ago. FW 9.0. I streetpassed my other 3ds xl fw 9.5 that has 35 panels complete. I'm using playcoin hb on my n3ds so I can have 300 coins all the time. After 7 complete puzzles I'm not getting any mark on the puzzle swap game. All other streetpasses works perfectly on the n3ds. I have 6 people in my plaza on the n3ds. Is there some restrictions for how many puzzles you can get each Week? Or any other restrictions?

    You need to turn on spotpass in streetplaza and put it in sleep mode, allowing it to download the data for the new puzzles. But I believe you want to stay on 9.0 so it will probably give you the update nag.

    Dammit. No I don't want to upgrade. Is there no other way to get new puzzle panels?

    I don't think you have to upgrade, but it will download the update in the background causing a pop up asking you to update. But I understand your fears.

    But how big is the fw update? Perhaps the fw update take some longer time to download than the puzzle swap spotpass upDate. You are correct about that I don't want to have the update nagging message.

    Spotpass for MiiPlaza and Spotpass for system settings are two different things. SpotPass for MiiPlaza will download an update for MiiPlaza only, not your system. Spotpass in system settings will potentially download a system update. If you want to have a NNID on your N3DS at some point you will have to accept the TOS anyway. You can still get streetpasses without a wifi connection as well.

    Yes! Thanks all :) I'm still on 9.0 and got new puzzle panels! I'm going to a Japan convention this weekend so there will be hundreds of streetpasses there :)

    I'm pretty sure that without spotpass turned on in system settings, it will still download the system update, but it won't download things like Youtube or things like that.

    I guess it will Do that. I turned my Internet off one second after the mii plaza was updated. I guess the fw update is much bigger than the mii plaza update. I'm happy :)

    Be sure to play a game before you go to the convention.

    Else if you use playcoin setter, everybody you streetpass with, will see playcoinsetter as last played game (I had a few in my streetpass with that as last played game)

    Thanks for the tips. But wouldn't it show Cubic ninja as the last played game?
