Description[Edit] This program is officially dead due to Miiverse shutting down.
Transfer a SmileBASIC program from your 3DS to your PC through the internet to archive it on your PC.
Since the transfer is essentially done through the internet, no special devices are needed! No auxiliary cables or splitters or webcams or anything.
This is for archiving programs with 3DS->PC transfers. It does not support PC->3DS transfers. InstructionsMove the program you wish to archive into the same folder as this Archiver program.
Launch the program "Archiver" and select the to program to archive from the list of files (or send the example "SENDME" file).
You will be given a screen filled with what looks like TV static. Take a screenshot of this by pressing the home button, clicking the "Miiverse" icon, and clicking "Save to Album".
Return to the program, and press A. If another image shows, then take another screenshot.
Keep repeating this until the program ends.
The longer your program is, the more amount of screenshots you will need to take. Each screenshot can carry up to 12,000 bytes!
How big is 12,000 bytes? The entire Archiver program is less than 3000 bytes!
Navigate to your screenshot album on your PC on Miiverse. That can be found at :
Download all the screenshots. Save them as "image1.jpg", "image2.jpg", etc, and make sure they are in the right order.
Install this program on your PC. It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Launch this program, click the button, and select all of your images. Make sure they are in order. If they are not in order, click the top of the "Name" column to sort files by name.
Click "open" and it will deconvert the images back into a text document and you will have your program on your PC!
And that's all there is to it. Sounds complicated but once you get the hang of it it's really easy.
The tl;dr version of the steps are: The 3DS app will turn your program into a series of images which you take screenshots through Miiverse, download the screenshots on your PC, and then open them with the PC version of the program linked above.
