    User @Ptrk25 has taken over the project!

    Please visit the official Thread here : Go to official one

    Video now available


    Hi all. This has been a summer full of work and I am happy to announce that the time is near! Here is a video for you all.



    Thank WhoAmI? for the video!


    Currently available

    - Online chat
    - Usable Interface
    - QWERTY keyboard -since no one wants AZERTY

    Future plans

    - More Realistic keyboard
    - Drawing features
    - Multiple Chatrooms
    - Permanent Chatrooms
    - A lot more ;)

    Update plans

    • I'm planning on releasing an update around wednesday the 9th.
      • This will include:
        • Online user list
        • Options menu
        • Some more error messages
        • Custom icon
    • Release TDB


    How to use?
    Currently we're still developing pictochat3DS,
    This is just an early beta release to test the capabilities of the first server.
    The server may crash/restart at any moment.
    In the future you'll be able to do much more,
    But currently you can just chat using it.

    Now we clarified that, lets begin.
    • Download pictochat3DS in the download link below
    • Unpack your download in the 3DS folder of your SD card.
      • (location pictochat.3dsx: drive:/3ds/pictochat3DS/pictochat3DS.3dsx)
    • Boot into the homebrew menu using your favorite method.
    • Find and start pictochat3DS.
    • If the server is available it will prompt you for a message to enter your username and press A
      • (if no message appears, or an error, the server is down, or you don't have internet connection)
    • You'll get a message that you're connected, and you can send messages using the A button.
    • Pressing start shutdown pictochat3DS and brings you back to the homebrew menu.

    Keep in mind that this is a work in progress please.

    I got to say that I did use pictochat on the original DS and Lite a lot.
    Sneakily gossiping about people sitting next to you in the train lol.

    So, yes, please do make one!

    Well, there wouldn't be any point besides for learning since you can already run the original DS pictochat on 3DS with a flashcard.

    I would love one, especially if it's cross compatible with the DS/DSi version!
    How? I tried using DS firmware but that didn't work.

    How? You're not referring to that game with Pictochat built in, are you? That sucked imo.

    As long as it can connect to the DS Lite and DSi, I'm fine with it!

    Thank you everybody for the feed back. I will start working on the July 18th because my schedule is full due to finale exams. If you would like to contribute please PM me. I know I don't have a reputation on this site so it might be hard to trust me that I will actually make this. My goal is to have it out by the end of summer. Please note that I am still learning C/C++ so this might get delayed.

    Thank you for taking time out of you day to read this :lol:

    I just don't have a Gateway card... If i did I would make a port but I don't want to spend 80$ besides smea said that ninjax will soon support 9.7 gateway is only up to 9.2. In order to port it I would also have to buy a 4.5 - 9.2 3DS i just don't have that kind of money.

    There's this thing called emunand... Anyways maybe someone will be kind enough to port it!

    EDIT: Assuming OP is on 9.2ish there's pasta CFW so you don't need a GW to use CIA's.

    I'll see what I can do. I will post updates and screenshots throughout the summer. My main goal is Ninjhax although eventually I'll port this to gateway for those that don't have the privilege of running Ninjhax.

    If you use devkitPro (don't know much about these things) it will dump both .elf and .3dsx
