    Installed the acnl-WA version, still no dice. I was able to replace Isabelle's model (sza.bcres) with Savannah's (hrs02.bcres), but not the other way around.
    Any other tips? Files I might need to edit?

    Little update, I've noticed that I can replace special NPCs with other special and normal NPCs, however I haven't been able to replace a single normal NPC with a special NPC.

    Huh, I checked and my Isabelle (sza.bcres -» hrs02.bcres) is working just fine, as well as other character swaps although the rest of mine are all Normal -» Normal, but I'm using the older NTR LayeredFS, not the Luma version. Maybe there's a compatibility issue like with HANS?

    Anyone else using Luma and can share their results?

    If all else fails, I'm sure there's some way to end up with someone else's working Isabelle files.

    I'll try using NTR's layeredfs once my 3ds is charged. Even if it doesn't end up working, thank you for the help and tips.

    I just tried replacing a Normal NPC model with Isabelle using Luma's layeredFS and the game crashes for me when the game attempts to load it in.
    @8BitWonder Does that happen you too?

    Yes that's exactly what my problem has been. As soon as I get into the area the model-swapped villager is located I crash.

    Since it worked fine for @deishido with NTR LayeredFS, it's not like it's the game being buggy or something.
    So it might be a bug with luma itself, it could be worth opening an issue on their github.

    Not a bad idea, I'll do that in a little bit if someone hasn't beaten me to it.

    So yet another update. I've got OnionFS now working with ACNL-WA. As a test I was able to replace hr02.bcres with reese's model. Tried with both cwa.bcres and sza.bcres for Isabelle and I still crash.
    My OnionFS directory is as follows:
    SD:/OnionFS/0004000000198E00/romfs/Npc/Normal/Model/hrs02.bcres
    Really haven't a clue what I'm doing wrong at this point, as NTR layeredfs (which OnionFS is a fork of) should be working.

    I also made sure to disable game patching in luma and delete the 0004000000198E00 folder under luma/titles/.

    Final update, switched from OnionFS to straight NTR layeredfs. I can still swap other models with hrs02, like Reese. But I still crash when swapping with Isabelle (sza).
    If it helps I'm using luma 8.1.1, BootNTRSelector 2.9 (launching ntr 3.6), and my region is US. Had L2 Cache enabled and clock rate set to 804MHz.

    Hmm, if Reece works, then the only thing i can think of is making sure your Isabelle Bcres isn't corrupted. The easiest way to test, would be to replace Isabelle with herself. Put the Isabelle sza.bcres where the game expects it to be (back up your Victoria sza.bcres just to be safe) and force the game to load your Isabelle file as herself. If it crashes when entering town hall (or wherever else she normally loads for you) then your Isabelle sza.bcres is messed up.

    Keep in mind there are several different Isabelle models for different seasons and events; if your Isabelle sza.bcres is messed up, I would recommend trying one of her other models: Liz.bcres rcn.bcres szb.bcres or szc.bcres

    I'm not at my computer to try that right now, but I do have my 3ds. Mounting the game.app and looking in the romfs I do not have liz or rcn (though they were in my cart dump without the welcome amiibo built in). I'll try replacing Isabelle with Isabelle when I get the chance and try the other models.

    And again I really do appreciate your help with this.

    I'm pretty sure liz and rcn went unused in the game, I certainly don't know where they would be used. Sza, Szb, and szc are all different seasonal outfits. After you get everything working, I would recommend replacing them with victoria's bcres files. Otherwise Isabelle will pop up in a month or two where she shouldn't be, lol.

    And no problem, I wish I could provide more help actually, but its been quite a while since I've accomplished anything serious. I'm just glad that what I know is still somewhat useful

    Ew, it's Wixy. If you're so desperate to ruin others towns, all the info to edit those file can be found in this thread. Have fun.

    Just out of curiosity, what file format are the models in? The site I found had Isabelle in .obj format and everything else in some bizarre format- .xcf, I think.
    I tried importing Rover to Blender, and it truly did not understand how to map the texture. No matter what I did to the settings, I couldn't get it to look right...
    I find it really amusing that all of the files Blender can understand (to my vastly incomplete knowledge) can be imported into a Word document. The site I found had made the Isabelle models into .obj files, and they displayed flawlessly in Word... it just doesn't seem right. I've been using docs because I have a Chromebook, and I look back at Word, and it has support for 3D models...

    Has there been any recent progress, re: .bcseq reverse engineering? I believe Soneek had plans to add it into vgmstream, at least according to an old github...

    Hello!
    I was trying to get the animations of Animal Crossing New Leaf, when i found a problem. Everything was going smoothly as Ohana3DS Rebirth can read .bcres, but in the villager animations folder "\romfs\HumanAnim" there's a file "humanAnimCommon.bcres" that Ohana says is an unsoported file format, while all the ohter files in this folder(with the same file format) ohana can load perfectly.This file is the file with most animations and it's 2,19MB in size.(Could the reason for this error be the size of the file?)

    My main question is if there's any way to get the animations inside it, and how?
    Has anyone had this problem too?
    Thank You in advance!!
