Does anyone know for sure if the data has to be transferred to the 3DS for a guildcard to be collected via streetpass? Some of my neighbors trigger streetpass occasionally and I don't want to be playing at home on my 3DS just in case I miss a card...

It would be nice if the streetpass information was held until you transer, but we all know things aren't often that clean...

So if my dad and I already have both a) separate NNIDs AND b) our own MH saves on our respective IDs, going under my options to delete all my data WILL NOT delete his data?

Bluh I feel like a moron. I did a search on the entire forum for multiple transfers and made a post after finding nothing. At least while waiting 10 seconds for a response I saw this and decided to investigate.

Thank you so much. I'm the very reason why everyone should examine stickies before even starting a search through the forum then posting.

So, i can keep both my 3DS file and WiiU file if i transfer from 3DS->WiiU? And then transfering from WiiU->3DS does both files?

I don't understand what's happening here. I'm trying to transfer from 3DS to Wii U. I mainly play on the 3DS, but I play on the Wii U occasionally. I've transferred before, but that was only once. Right now, when trying to tranfer from 3DS to Wii U, it says that the files do not match, adn that I need to delete the files on the Wii U first. Is that supposed to happen?

Sorry if it's been posted in the topic already.

Don't know, but I don't think it should.

No, when you transfer from the 3DS the file on the 3DS is deleted automatically. When you transfer from the Wii U to the 3DS, it locks the Wii U file and you shouldn't play it until you have transferred back, which leads me to...From: GuerillaGorilla | #026

If you play your Wii U file after it has been locked by transferring to the 3DS, BEFORE you transfer back to the 3DS, this is what happens. You have to delete one or the other before you can do any further transferring.

Oh. After I transferred it back from the Wii U the first time, I tried to access my char on the Wii U just to see what would happen. I didn't save it or anything though. Regardless, I deleted it and went on with my game.

I've been considering getting a second Wii U to play this online with my wife. We've been doing local co-op with her on the Wii U and me on the 3DS. I've been using the transfer tool to move my save data to the 3DS when we co-op and then move it back when I want the TV. I hate the 3DS--too small and that's why I want a second Wii U.

My question is: Can I transfer my NNID from our first Wii U to the new one and then transfer my MH3U save data to the new Wii U via the 3DS?

I'm wondering if I'll get a data mismatch if I try to transfer from 3DS to a Wii U that doesn't have my locked char on it. I know that I can transfer the NNID to a new console, but I don't know about the MH3U save data.

Just curious, but what happens when you transfer a character created on the 3DS to a Wii U that doesn't have that character's locked data? At that time, the MH3U 3DS character is not associated with any NNID. If the Wii U account I am transferring too already has an NNID setup, will the MH3U save data use that NNID to go online?
