Default Tomodachi Life and Street Pass

Help! When I first got Tomodachi Life, I got a number of items through StreetPass but ever since the system update, I get nothing. I know a few people who are playing and the same thing has happened to them.

I read someplace that there is a glitch and that StreetPass doesn't work for the first game that you have listed for StreetPass (Systerm Settings > Data Management > StreetPass Management > ). So I reinstalled SwapNote so that it's the first game shown, but still no StreetPass hits for Tomodachi Life.

Anybody else have this problem? Anybody have suggestions?

Now that you mention it, I've got the same problem.
When I got the game I updated it right away. I activated the Street and Spotpass.
The following day I encountered people who played Tomodachi Life and didn't get any ingame.
Curious to say the least, but I forgot about it until now.
Guess I have to wait untill the next update...

I agree with you Lexie, this has to be fixed.
As long as it's not fixed I won't use Tomodachi's Streetpass.
Too bad.

I just started playing TL and I've got the Street Pass activated in both Mii Plaza and the game. I'm not sure if I've been playing long enough to experience the problem yet. I do know that I turned on Street Pass in Mii Plaza AFTER I turned it on in Tomodachi Life. I promise to check back as I love this game.

I found this info online:

Details: If you are hitting Nintendo Zones and receiving StreetPass hits from them, but don't seem to be receiving or sending date from Tomodachi Life such as travelers and import items, try this to see if it helps at all.

Go into your system settings, then go into Data Management. From there select StreetPass, and check to see if your Tomodachi Life game is in the very first (top left corner) spot on the list of software using StreetPass. Supposedly, being in this spot produces this bug and affects the proper transmission of StreetPass data.

To move Tomodachi Life out of the first spot, simply deactivate StreetPass for another title in the list, then exit the settings menu. Go into whatever game/software you turned StreetPass off for, and turn it back on. This will put that into the first spot on the 'list' in the settings menu and bump Tomodachi Life out of the first spot. Once done then hit a few Nintendo Zones and see if you are now sending/receiving StreetPass data properly.

Hope this helps.

Since installing the latest system update i have a different problem.

I got a spotpass notification to say that a new item was available in my island's import wear shop, yet whenever i check in game at either the import wear shop or via the spotpass/streetpass options in the town hall it says no items are available.

Before the latest system update was released i had no problems downloading any spotpass items.

Just checked mine. I cannot even activate Streetpass. Ingame it is only light grey and can't be opened, in the 3DS Settings it doesn't even appear.

Too bad, don't want to stop Streetpass Plaza. Have all these games going on there.

I did a bit of googling & found one other forum where someone stated that all people in the pal region seem to be unable to download the latest pal region spotpass items http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/5908...potpass-items/

But i haven't found anything yet about the streetpass issue.

It's a shame this is so buggy.
Streetpass TL was working for me, yet on my last trip I encountered three people who had TL playe last but no streetpasses in game.

For what it's worth, I redownloaded Swapnote and it was in the first position. Ever since then, StreetPass seems to work fine.

I finally could activate Streetpass. Guess it just wasn't available from the start? Didn't have any hits yet, but I will keep an eye on it.
