streetpass problem

#1MaDmAtHiEuPosted 12/9/2012 11:23:32 AM
My girlfriend and I went to a Mini Comiccon yesterday for about an hour. She streetpassed 21 Miis but I only met 12. I have a regular 3ds and she has a 3dsxl. Is the 3DSXL better for streetpassing?

There is a limit of how much you can get at a time, you have to go in and check the new miis to get even more.

I'll tell you what happened because it happened to me and my wife at an Anime Con, Your GF streetpassed the 3DS before yours did and she happened to be number 10 filling up their 3DS and leaving you unable to receive theirs until they clear theirs out. If they weren't checking theirs then there would be no way for you to receive them as well which sucks but hey what can you do.

Yup, I went to a convention and had to clear my 3DS every so often, if they didnt clear their 3DS they woudnt streetpass with anyone else, thats probably why your GF got more hits than you.

So what exactly are the limitations? You can only have 10 street passes sitting outside the plaza at anytime? And once you greet them in, you must use them all before sleeping 3ds again or else you can't use them in find mii? Any limits on how many you can have INSIDE the plaza?

basically you can have 10 inside plaza and 10 outside plaza totaling to 20. just keep checking often is what i would do. as for the limit, it's over 9000!

But the thing is, do you lose your usable miis if you let them into your plaza and then sleep the 3ds right after? Or can you amass a ton of them over time for find mii?

Just putting the 3DS to sleep doesn't do anything. If you keep the application open and get a StreetPass while it's running, there will be an arrow icon that allows you to bring in the next group of Miis. If you use the arrow before using all the Miis you've currently collected you'll lose use of them in the games, but it's fine to use it afterwards. You'll also lose them if you bring them in to the plaza and then don't use them before midnight (but if you haven't brought them in you can keep them indefinitely). And if you quit the program and then restart it, the next group will be brought in automatically, unless you haven't used all the ones you have yet, in which case it will warn you and give you the chance to use them first.
