Animal crossing wild world locks up w/ ARDS

Whenever i use my Action Replay DS for animal crossing wild world, it just turns black and does nothing when i press 'start'. it used to work, but it got screwed up and i had to erase all my codes and games. i added the cheats back, but it locks up even when i don't use any of them. Everytime I go on Action Replay European, I go on and tick all the cheats. I take it out and then put Animal Crossing Wild World European in, but haven't turned the DS off.
I go on the game and press continue when they ask you and the screen goes as if it would go to the game but it just stays black. I have the master cheat and my friend used the same action replay and kept turning it on and off and reticking the cheats and stuff. But it finally worked at the end, and I spent ages doing that and it didn't work.
Can someone please help and tell it in detail please :D

    me too, and when i using ar it was fine after!

    Okay...I cannot get it to start with my action replay in. Its fine when it is out of the action replay. I have the master code and just so everybody knows you don't have to spell the cheats right on the action replay. Its really bugging me that I can play other games on the action replay except for animal crossing. And i know I got the right version!

My Action Replay doesn't work with ACWW

People had gone to extreme measures to fix this problem, when the answer is right in front of them! :P

Yes, Animal Crossing Wild World v.1.52 does NOT work on Action Replay. However, v.1.1 does. Notice that there are two versions of Animal Crossing. If Animal Crossing (the default one) goes to a black screen, and doesn't load anymore, delete that file, and use the other one where it says v.1.1. The codes does not work, but click "START" anyways. Notice how there aren't anymore black screens. Turn it off, and don't load your game. That's where the easy part comes in. Just replace the old codes, and use the v. 1.52 codes (that you can find at It'll work perfectly fine.

I know it was frustrating for you, because it was for me too. But fortunately, I found the solution, and I'm happy to share this with everyone. Have fun!

Which by the way, I forgot to mention that since the default Animal Crossing WW file has been deleted, and the game ID is different than v.1.1., you must click the star on the bottom left corner, and click on Animal Crossing V.1.1. yourself. It won't load automatically like it did before, but it's no troublesome, I SWEAR!

Action Replay DS has deleted avery single cheat code it came with

Your Action Replay DS hardware may require resetting if you are experiencing any of the following problems:
* Code Manager PC software is reporting that Action Replay DS does not contain enough free space when it actually contains no codes.
* Code Manager PC software is reporting the console`s battery is low when it’s actually fully charged.
* Multicoloured bars are shown on the screen after you confirm the entry of a game ID when trying to manually enter codes. * You can use the Code Manager PC software without any problems until the Action Replay DS is connected via USB set to the update mode on the console, at which point Windows shows a run time error.
If you are experiencing any of these problems, please follow the steps below to reset the Action Replay DS hardware. Please beware that resetting the Action Replay DS hardware will not restore a default codelist, and any codes which are stored on the Action Replay DS will be erased.
  1. With your console powered off insert the Action Replay DS
  2. Hold down buttons A+B
  3. Turn your console on
  4. With A+B still held down, as soon as you see the Action Replay DS license screen press and hold down buttons START+SELECT so that you now have 4 buttons held down
  5. Hold all 4 buttons down for around 10 seconds until the Action Replay DS loads to it`s home screen
  6. If Action Replay DS doesn’t hold on the license screen for around 10 seconds when you do this, you may need to turn off and try again

My action replay doesnt work for animal crossing wild world

Did you find a code from online? If you did it might not be for your version, or it might be for another country.
