Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

Animal Crossing will not save.

My daughter has just purchased Animal Crossing. She can play the game fine, but when it comes to saving, it will not save.When she tries to save, it tells her to take the game cartidge out and try again, but she has tried this a number of times and it still won't save.I have wiped over the terminals of the game, and tried to blow any dust out of the slot, but other than this don't really know what to try. Could this be a problem with the game itself or the unit. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I have the same problem. When I press start button to save, it says 'what? For some reason you can't save'. Does anyone know why this is?

I have repaired many of these units for people and from what I am hearing it actually sounds like a game problem. Have you tried other games in it just to see if they will save if they will I would swap out the game.

My animal crossing game just frose and i dont know why so could you help me please? I am worried that i will lose all my data.


there might have been a peice of something in the cartrige port, but im not really sure either. If you saved recently, then i think the memory you saved should be fine. if you are using an action replay, then i dont think your memory is safe. Hope i helped~

When i play the game (animal crossing: Let's go to the city) on a different Wii i have to start from the very begining. Why will it not pick up from where i left?


This is because your save data doesn't go onto the game disc itself. Instead the wii is designed to save directly it's built in console hard drive or possibly a memorey card.
you can however transfer your saves to an sd card via your consoles memory managment options (this way you could bring your save data to your friends house and use it on their wii)
this link will help explain: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wii/en_na/data.jsp#SDcopy
hope it helps

Usa DS game won't save,WHY??


Hi,
It shouldnt matter where it was bought,i've bought a few games when i was in Usa last year and they work on a console i bought here in Ireland.

When you go to save a game and the three spaces are used up,select one and overwrite it,you can only save 3 at a time
Hope this helps,

I can't save progress in Animal crossing! >< plz


Sorry, that's not true. You can save anywhere in the game by hitting the start button, whether or not you're in your house. To me, it sounds like your game file is corrupted. Your only option at this point is to start over again. If it doesn't work after that, you should buy a new game.

My animal crossing: Wild world wont load.


You need the master code.
Get the Master code for your version, and then put it on (dont activate it tho).

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 Codejunkies.com). 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!

Dsi cant exits ds lites town without blue screen


Try updating your software in your dsi? Keep in mind that AC was intended for ds not dsi so there is some bugs. Just like how AR(action ready codes) wont work for dsi, it just wasn't made for dsi.

solution? buy a ds? gamestop sell used ds for 70ish dollars or so.

Animal Crossing WW for DS.Can't save game


I can't understand this. Nothing like this has ever happened to me and I have had Animals Crossing - Wild World for a while.
I think maybe you should try to take the game back and get another cartrige.
I can't give much help, but I have tried..
Thanks(:
