Hey! So I'm very new to this site and fairly new to hacking, so please be easy on me if this is a stupid question. I couldn't find an actual solution for this (or at least one that I could understand), only other people complaining about the same issue.
I'm trying to hack Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, and create custom villagers. I've done this before with New Leaf. I get a .3DS ROM from the internet (I have tried getting romfs from godmode9 but for some reason it only gave me like, 25% of the files), I decrypt it, then I run it through Asia81's PackHack. It usually gives me a folder with all the romfs. When I tried it with HHD, it gave me a bunch of .bin files, including one that was half a gigabite big. I just deleted it but I think it was called DecryptedRomFS.bin.
I really need the actual folder in order to make my hack. So if anyone can help, that would be greatly appreciated! :)

EDIT: I have no idea why, but I tried extracting all the romfs files from HHD via GodMode9 for the fourth time, and it FINALLY worked. My problem still persists but I don't really need an answer now. However if anyone is having the same problem and can't use the GodMode9 method for whatever reason (such as not having a 3DS), answers would be great ^^

You can mount RomFS using GodMode9 and extract all of the files and folders to the SD card.

That's what I tried doing. As I said in my post, it could only get a handful of files for some reason. A lot of villager files were missing, so I've just been using ROMs from the internet.
