    Am I missing something? My wife just tried to play this game and she loves it, but when she went to save it for the first time, it gave an error message and she had to shut it down. When she turned it back on it got a save corrupted message and had to delete it.. NOT GOOD...

    Before she tries to play again, is this new?

    EDIT

    I downloaded it as a CIA from hippo guy...

    Never happened to me. Probably just a random glitch.

    No, but it shouldn't matter, unless the CIA file is made wrong.

    Go to the same site you found the bad cia and search for legit usa animal crossing cia.
    that's what you want ... it's as good as having the real thing.

    Animal Crossing has a special way of saving...I don't remember the specifics though.

    I thought GW had a solution for this, but maybe it requires something special to be done on the user's part.

    Using a .cia is probably a lot easier though, so it doesn't matter.

    ACNL is a card2 cartridge which actually saves inside the rom (gamedata) memory chip instead of a seperate eeprom save chip. That's not an issue anymore. The problem is, the 'repacked' cia's are converted from cart roms in a somewhat complicated process that is more likely to produce errors if not done just right. The 'legit' cia's that i described above, are barely changed from their original source as a bundled system game. So much so, in fact, that they can even be played on sysnand without hacks. They're that clean (aka 'legit').

    Ah, that's right. Thanks for the reminder

    Yeah I've gotten a few poorly made .cias from that certain site. Legit .cias are definitely much better and easier to use, at least for the games that they exist for.
