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.

    @Xpk24, Sure thing.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    But this is the general chit chat. Nobody responds to questions.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    esta bien pero tu lo vas hacer porfa
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Saying it like that sounds like you want others to do it than doing the research yourself.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    I've already posted a link to the Nintendo DS section so that you can post something regarding your DS flashcart. Just make sure all of your posts are in English as this is against the rules.
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no yo no estoy diciendo eso solo necesito una información que necesito calmado
  • Xpk24 @ Xpk24:
    no se no donde sea si pero aca en venezuela las consolas de ds esta descontinuadas y la poca información que consigo en internet no es la que nesecito
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    You know, finding information about DS flashcarts isn't that hard. They can be found pretty much everywhere and a lot of them can be still bought, however, these are clones from previous generations.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    My apologies if I'm boring you. But if you'd like help with your DS flashcart, then I highly suggest making a thread to get a quick reply. Nobody is going to help in the chat section.

    @Veho, I asked them to translate their messages, but they didn't listen.
