Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

So one day I was playing animal crossing wild world, when all of a sudden the game freezes, wipes my data, and the ds gives off a little puff of smoke and smelt like party poppers for a week. Now the clock has stopped counting time, which some reason means no one can connect to me on wifi even though I can get online. Also it now freezes very often (I mean 4/5 times when I try turning it on). Any help? Should I try resetting the DS? Changing clock batter? Or just giving up on it? (it's out of it's warranty.)

Hi.

By what you are describing and the smell of "party poppers" this is sounding very much like the lithium battery is on its way out and leaking. The smell that you are describing sounds like the Sulphur Dioxide is leaking from the battery.

Alternatively, there could be an internal component that has fried inside the DS itself.

For safetey purposes I wouldn't use the DS until you have checked the DS with another working battery to see if it makes a difference in gameplay and freezing. The reason i'm telling you not to use the DS with it's own battery is beacuase some lithium batteries have been known to catch fire and sometimes blow up.

The leakage may not be visible to the eye but remove the battery and check around the battery housing on the DS for any moisture.

If there is anything else you would like to know please post back.



Hope this helps!!!



Regards.

Animal Crossing Wild World keeps freezing or just won't even read


If you bought this game second hand you might be lucky and find that cleaning the contacts on the game will fix it. Other than that if all other games work on your DS then the game is corrupt and will need to be replaced

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!

Animal crossing wild world ds


Hey :). I use to play Animal Crossing: Wild World on my DS too. To get a garden in the game you have to go to Nook's store and buy flowers. You can bring these near your house and plant them. Every individual flower will get bigger and all together they will all make a garden.
