AR Code Generator (Pokemon)
« on: July 29, 2011, 07:51:02 pm »
Finally finished! ;D

Although I'm sure this is highly unoptimized, I feel it is time for a release. :P
Since the current version of Pokedex 3d only includes the 5th generation, so does this.  I'm working on all 649 names currently, and will update this when the Pokedex gets an update.
I appreciate any feedback, so feel free to post errors and bugs.

It creates a qr code like image for any number up to 1024 (?) by binary conversion.
It also goes through a gigantic string and pulls out the name of the pokemon number entered.

The image then can be identified by a 3ds running the Pokedex 3d application, and "make a pokemon appear" in real life, also known as Augmented Reality, AR.

Although it has almost no practical use  I still think that it is a neat idea, and was amazed it actually worked (3ds recognized it) when I was making it.

I did not personally "crack the code" of the qr images, I found an article and used it to help deduce how to generate each image.
I feel the need to say:
I don't own Pokemon, or Pokedex, or any of the Pokemon names, or Pokedex 3d.  Nintendo does.

Wow, just realized I messed up the name system a lot!  Fixed it!

Note:  This is my first program to ever be released, so be prepared!  :P

I've given up the hope of using one program for now due to a lack of conversion software, so these three should work.
Send all three files to calc, then run POKEDEX

No, sorry for the lack of description, I was kinda nervous.

It creates a qr code like image for any number up to 1024 (?) by binary conversion.

It also goes through a gigantic string and pulls out the name of the pokemon number entered.

Fixed the first post.

what, so I'm still a little confused. You input a qr code, and it displays a corresponding pokemon on a 3ds?

You input a number (each pokemon is assigned a number, I use the ones from the game), and then it creates the qr code that the 3ds reads and displays a pokemon on, the 3ds Augments Reality.

Here's a qr code image off teh interwebz:


and then the 3ds creates a pokemon on top of it, like this:

I tried downloading the program, but the files inside the .zip didn't seem to work... Maybe you used a Mac? The Mac version of TI-Connect is a bit different. Try saving it as an .8xp file instead.

Thanks for telling me, it should be a .8xp now ;D

It doesn't seem to work. msd8x tells me that the file is corrupt. :( Are you sure that you saved the file as .8xp? Simply renaming it won't work.

Hmm, it told me that it saved itself as a .8xp file...

That is wierd.  Upon inspection, it just saved itself with a different extension, it didn't even change the file at all.
I will upload it once I can convert it.

If you know a way to change it to an .8xp, pm me.

Ok, cool. Makes sense now. :) However I don't have a 3ds (or really any game system besides computer) so I can't test it out. :P

You should get one, cause they are pretty neat, plus about a $100 price drop in about a month.


Just updated the download, hopefully this one should work, I just took the source files right off the calc and uploaded them

The problem isn't with money. It's with my parents.

Unfortunately for a lot of people in college now, money is the problem.
