The relay point for streetpass is FINALLY starting to work at McDonald's thank you! :D

I got a hit yesterday through drive thru & today we went in to eat inside McDonald's worked again. :D

Glad to finally see the streetpass relay point up & running for a change over here. :D

I didn't think I was the only one going to the same McDonald's all the time lol. :D

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

Still not working for me and its getting more frustrating by the day. I even tried to sign into one of them and that gave me problems! I've also seen my streetpasses go down greatly even without the relays working. Down to like 1 or 2 a week instead of 5-10!

First, is your system fully up to date? Probably, but some people do forget that.

Second, do the businesses you frequent which have Nintendo Zones actually keep their wifi stuff up to date? Outdated firmware will likely cause it to fail, and you will have little chance to even know this, but consider it as a possible factor.

Well I was outside McDonalds parking lot so long trying to get it to work they were probably about to call the police lol. The frustrating part is this is the only one I've even got the SP hits from so I figured I sign in at this one. Yeah I'm up to date on everything. This really sucks!!

They may have set their range to within the restaurant itself, if it wasn't like that before then it's even more likely they adjusted the range actually. A lot of businesses don't like people leeching their wifi, so they sometimes get smart and hire a geek to help them reduce leeching, and reducing the maximum range for the wifi is the best way if there's a "free to use if you buy something" wifi connection there. The Nintendo Zones are wifi dependent, I believe, thus changing their wifi settings will effect these as well.

This Saturday i got eight Streetpass hits at Utrecht train station, including one from a Japanese tourist! Sadly he did not have an Animal Crossing showcase home for me but it was strangely exciting anyway. I think there are two Nintendo Zones in that area; I always get a couple of hits there

The new 6-tag relay update is working now, but you won't necessarily get 6 tags till 6 people visit, as I guess they didn't store all the previous data.

Oh, man, it looks like you can only tag people that have visited the relay since your last visit, so this is still going to suck for locations that get less than 1 tag a day, and here I was hoping this update was going to fix it so that you'd at least get the last 5 people again after 8 hours if you were the last person to tag the relay.

This is stupid considering you live in a place where your lucky to get 1 a month. They should have some kind of online connectivity for people who struggle to get hits :p

A little while before Nintendo started the relay thing, I drove around town with my 3DS. I parked outside a Gamestop, Best Buy, and maybe Starbucks. When I got home, I had only one hit. Funny thing, I was driving through a neighborhood, and a guy was getting into his car and he was by far the closest person I passed. I'm thinking it was him and the other stuff was a waste, because the Mii even looked sort of like him!

This past weekend, I walked around Best Buy and got nothing. I'm in the Dallas suburbs, so I have to think they've got the relay thing happening. There was a guy walking out, playing his 3DS XL as he walked. I got as close as I could without it being weird, but nothing.

I'm only in it for the Animal Crossing houses at this point. Maybe, if this BB is participating, someone got my house.

If you're struggling to get relay hits, I found that if you open up your 3DS and wait for the nintendo zone player to flash blue, then go to the plaza and go to the games, it'll push the hit through.

They must both be in sleep mode to get the hit, I believe. As for the Best Buy thing, aside from the fact that the store sucks anyway, it probably won't reach to the parking lot, signal strength for wifi modems can be limited within the settings and most businesses will limit those to within the actual store to prevent leeching the signal. My local Starbucks has it limited to just outside the store, they have outdoor seating sometimes and in this area leeches are pretty much not an issue anyway. The local Target has it limited to only within the store. The local Gamestop is in a mall so I haven't even checked the range on that.

I went in the second time, but I just kind of walked back to the games section and then walked out. Maybe not enough time? Is there a list of all businesses that are Nintendo Zones? I didn't know about Target.

On the 3DS itself, there is a finder, as well as a search online. You may just live in one of those rare voids, where there are few, if any, 3DS owners who carry their systems with them. That would suck, and Nintendo sympathizes with such plights as well but they can only do so much. Honestly, I have no recommendation for such a situation.

@KittenKoder No they don't have to be in sleep mode to get a pass. As long as the WiFi light is flashing you can get one. Now if the other person was playing a ds game then no you can't get a pass even if in sleep mode. Also I've done drive bys at Gamestop before and got the pass. The one by me has the 3ds by the door. Problem is I might not get one if someone else inside has one!

Also I've had game passes before but not plaza. I've noticed a lot of people don't set their plaza mii up so maybe that person didn't have his even up and running!

They don't need to be in sleep mode to tag unless you have an Internet connection, but you'll have an Internet connection at Nintendo Zones, so that's why your system needs to be in sleep mode to tag the relays.

Since Tuesday everytime I have gone to McDonalds I have gotten 2 to 4 Streetpasses, I think that the up to 6 hits that Nintendo mentioned has started.

I went in McDonald's and a couple of Gamestops today. I got two people in my Mii Plaza and one house in Animal Crossing from someone different, as well as a few things for NSMB2 and MK7. Don't know if it was the relay or actual people present.
