Help / Smash/Kart/Splatoon Cards "Could Not Open Socket" Error
« on: March 24, 2016, 01:09:00 PM »
There seems to be a glitch going on with the N Masters card generators. I don't think anyone can create cards or level them up!

This is really handy for StreetPass Relay, a Nintendo update for 3DS systems that allows StreetPasses over the internet through approved hotspots.

Here's a setup guide for HomePass:
Spreadsheet with all the info you need to set this up
The setup (use the SSID/AP mentioned in the spreadsheet instead of "_The Cloud" as it mentions)

Some home networking knowledge is required to set this up without a hitch. The router you choose to use for HomePass will need its stock firmware overwritten with custom firmware from DD-WRT that is compatible with your router, if any exist for your router. That is a whole different setup from HomePass. The link to HomePass assumes you have a router with DD-WRT installed. It is recommend you use a different wireless router than the one you use regularly. In my case, I had an old WRT54G (v6) going unused so I transformed that into a clone Nintendo Zone access point. I turned off the DHCP server of the WRT54G so that way it utilizes the DHCP from the parent router instead; the one I use regularly (my XFINITY TC8305C modem/router). This hotspot will need to be wired to your parent router in some fashion once finished with the setup (slot one of WRT54G connected to a slot of the TC8305C).

It is possible to do this with other methods besides wireless routers. Read the Config Tutorials for more information how to set that up.

I have successfully been able to trick my 3DS into getting StreetPass data from around the world from the comfort of my home. My StreetPass Mii Plaza data, such as completing Find Mii II and swapping puzzle pieces, have been stagnant with progress for months as my usual StreetPasses were from other 3DS users within my radius. My first test got 6 people from Canada, Scotland, Brazil, and from various states in the United States! To maximize your Streetpasses and reap the benefits of that StreetPass data for each game, make sure to change the MAC clone wireless address and SSID/AP (usually doesn't change unless specified by the spreadsheet). Also be sure to claim the StreetPass data because the game limits how many at once you can hold between claimings (SSB for 3DS is 12, Mario Kart 7 is 10, and StreetPass Mii Plaza is 10).

Sm4sh cards are being generated faster than Mario Kart 8 and that system has been around a lot longer (latest)!

10,000th card:

Congrats N-Masters! Cheers! :o

General Nintendo / Club Nintendo Discontinuation

Club Nintendo Discontinuation Notice

At first I was like "no" but a new system could be better because the current system isn't implemented very well with the NNID system and was a hassle just to get the coins because I always felt those surveys to be pointless and had redundant elements to them. It makes me wonder how they will implement the new reward system with older games (especially 3DS and Wii U games) that used the Club Nintendo system because it would be forcing people that bought those games out of rewards for the new system. I'm shocked conversion of Club Nintendo accounts to the new system wasn't considered since they are dropping all coins and games associated with each Club Nintendo account.

I am a Platinum "Elite Status" member for 2015 and have 1210 coins. I'll be sure to not put my 1210 coins to waste this coming February. :P

PC Games / Portal 2

Love this game. It is such an interesting idea. Made 30+ maps for the Workshop. Have around 200 favorite maps to play on the Workshop.

My Steam:

Other Franchises / F-Zero?

No love for F-Zero? Just a random topic about F-Zero: Nintendo's other racing game that is more about speed than Mario Kart's party races.

I happen to own almost every game in the franchise. I have:
  • F-Zero (SNES)
  • F-Zero X (N64)
  • F-Zero GX (GCN)
  • F-Zero Maximum Velocity (GBA)
  • F-Zero GP Legend (GBA)
  • F-Zero Climax (GBA) (Japan)

There are two missing pieces to my collection and they are:
  • BS F-Zero Grand Prix (Super Famicom) (Japan) (predates modern digital downloads and DLC apparently)
  • F-Zero X Expansion Kit (64DD) (Japan)

Most likely, I may never get these two remaining pieces officially.

Wii / There, Hacked!

So, I took one of these:

Which is for one of these:

Which normally attaches to the back of it like this:

Seeing how the battery compartment molding is similar:

I did:

And it works! I hacked it! :D


I know it will get in the way of motion controls but I don't play much games that require it these days. I still have Super Mario Galaxy for example but I don't play it much. Plus the adapter is attached to a broken IR sensor Wii Remote so I don't care. :P

I posted that over two years ago [here].


The problem is that they were 7 years too late! Nintendo DS came before the Wii and it came with a rechargeable battery pack so why not Wii? I HATE fiddling around with AA batteries! You want to know how much money and time I wasted just to find an acceptable 3rd party? I bought a NYKO Charge Station and it's a piece of garbage! It's the best I could find at the time.

The first Wiis were released as early as November 19, 2006 and the rechargeable battery was released sometime in summer/fall 2013 as far as Google has shown me with game industry reporting. It's more for people that have bought a Wii U that want to use the Wii Remote with it. It's only available through Nintendo's Online Store in black and not bundled with a Wii Remote for $40. Direct link:


I'm OK with the black only variety. I don't care as long as it works! I've always put more money down on 1st party accessories than 3rd party because of quality control. I do think the price for one battery pack with charger is a bit costly. I think it's worth $20. Buying four of these should be $80 and not $160 which would be more competitive with the $50 NYKO Charge Station Quad.
