    Hello everyone!
    First I must say that I come from Germany , so sorry for my English.
    Yes I have a big problem. I used the acnl editor and then i wanted to start animal crossing but it doesnt start.
    The problem is the garden.dat ( i think so ) and now I have lost my old town (the garden.dat file) and have only the new garden.dat (with 3 persons) , exhibition.dat from my old town and new town and the friends files from 1-3.
    What is the Problem?
    maybe you are polite and give me your files the garden, exhibition and friends files ? ._.
    i dont know how to go on
    have a nice day!

    Do you have access to Emunand or perhaps CFW of some sort? if not sure I could supply you with my save to overwrite yours though you would have to wait a bit.

    No. I don't have a access to Emunand or perhaps CFW , that means you could give me your saves? Thank you a lot :o I wait

    Yep, I'll give it to you when I get to my house. Though I recommend completely deleting your saves as putting your exhibition.dat with my garden.dat could result in some crazy Frankenstein save XD

    Unfortunately the save editors don't tell you why the file won't load. Do you remember the last changes you made before it broke?

    garden.dat is the file which contains almost everything about your game save, so if you use someone else's, it won't have any of your data. You can,however, compare the 2 and possibly fix the issue manually.

    Yesterday , I used it. There was everything fine and then today I wanted to use the Editor and now it doesnt start.
    (I had the Editor used this afternoon , 5-6 hours ago) As a result I tried everything what I can and know.
    Okay :o I have only 2 garden.dat files (all from the hacked town) maybe i post it here? and with the another files ( exhibition.dat , friend.dat ) it doesnt matter?

    exhibition.dat contains data that doesn't matter as far as I know. It seemed like it was intended to be used for something but they scrapped it last moment. the friends.dat is for best-friends registered, I believe.
    garden.dat is the only file that matters, so if you have broken ones, you can post them and i'll take a look but I don't know if I can fix it.

    Also, if the issue occurred after it loaded up and you saved, then the issue must be something minor like a rock didn't spawn properly or an object is stuck out of bounds.

    Here are the 2 garden.dat files.
    It looks very chaotic (full with flowers) , because that was the third try from my hacking in the ACNL and yet I wanted to try very much xD

    Here's my save file, if you don't really care about your town just import it and delete the save data. Though you may be trying to salvage your garden.dat also.

    for future reference you can clear the games savedata by holding ABXY while you boot up the game :)

    if you want I could try to fix your old save, no promises though
