    While Animal Crossing by itself works great on my CycloDS, it has problems visiting other villages in DS to DS mode. I'm able to open my gates and let others (with retail carts) visit, but if I visit them, we get a communication error. If I restore the SAV to my retail cart, everything works. I haven't tried visiting a village that is also on a CycloDS cart, but the problem as-is is an annoyance.

    I've posted this in the Bug Reports forum over at Team Cyclops, but I'm curious if other Animal Crossing players have come across this problem.

    I've managed to visit another town on cyclo-cyclo and cyclo-r4.

    My sister's Animal Crossing on her Cyclo keeps freezing. She cried when she got Resetti three times in a row. I haven't had this issue, but I can test it for you if you want. Me and my two sisters all have copies of Animal Crossing on our Cyclos, as well as a retail cart.

    Are you guys using a clean, untrimmed ROM with cheats disabled?

    Have you ever used Real-Time Save with Animal Crossing (I hear it causes problems)?

    And to the guy with the freezing issue, just format the MicroSD.

    Clean & untrimmed. Dumped it myself. CRC confirms v1.1 clean. Don't use RTS or cheats. Clean formatted 8GB Sandisk uSDHC.

    I was here... before...
    I've got no problem with the euro version trimmed ( tested with both cycloDS & Ace RPG in DS to DS mode )

    I've done some further testing. The problem doesn't happen if the person that opens their gate and invites others has a v1.1 retail cart. The problem only occurs if they user has a v1.0 retail cart. The odd thing is that a v1.1 retail cart can connect to a v1.0 retail cart, but a v1.1 ROM on a CycloDS cannot maintain a long-lasting connection to a v1.0 retail cart.
