    This is just a quick question. I have a wii with firmware 3.4 I also have it hacked so i can play games using backup launcher. my question is, since i already have firmware 3.4, will Animal crossing still update my firmware, and if it does, will it mess my wii up.

    if your on 3.4 then you shouldn't get the update .... but then again you may ... but no it won't affect you ... I have 3.3u updated from 3.2 with animal crossing .. and everything still works (wads and all). gonna downgrade again and starfall my wii

    I can't speak for myself here so take it however you want but: I remember reading on the compatibility list for loader someone reported an issue with 3.4 and WiFi on AC (if its a backed up copy that is).

    Theres a file floating around these boards called animal_crossing_fix. Grab that and install it with wadmanager. Its IOS38, apparently its to do with wiispeak or something.

    here's my sugestion:
    dont even bother with 3.4, it isnt good there are no benefits at all... really
    downgrade to 3.2u and starfall, then just download the scrubbed brick free torrent version thaths out there... it was only a couple of megabites!!! thats it!!!

    I have a 3.2u wii with starfall and gamma loader loads animal crossing without problems. Wifi works great as well. in reallity all you need is the scrubbed and brick free wrision of the game.

    There are some benefits. There are faster read times from SD cards, such as copying virtual console games from SD card to Wii memory and visa versa.
    If you have starfall installed, you don't need to use brick blocker to remove the updates; starfall blocks them anyway if you install that feature. His Wii is 3.4X anyway, so he wouldn't get the update anyway because Animal Crossing has a 3.3Xv2 update. He might still have to get the IOS38 installed (for WiiSpeak compatibility and Animal Crossing WiFi).

    That's strange. How come my 3.2U Wii didn't update while playing an Animal Crossing backup? [​IMG]

    hmm... if you want to get the real game then nothing will be a problem... if not here is what you need to do:
    1. Starfall is not necesary... this is a patch for the system that enables you to recover from a semi baner brick... something that fixes your wii when you installed a bad wad...
    2. Downgrading is not necessary as well if you do not want to Starfall your wii.
    3. Here is what is necessary...
    1. Install Twilight Hack : http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Twilight_Hack
    2. Homebrew Channel Installed : http://hackmii.com/2008/12/because-nobodys-perfect-hbc-101/
    3. Gamma Loader Installed : http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=115623
    4. Wii iso of AC here's a torrent : just search google for the brickblocked and scrubbed iso
    thats all... if you really are interested in installing starfall then look here:
    1. http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=118...t=0&start=0 this is a good tutorial on downgrading
    2. http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Starfall this is the starfall app... installation is easy... just follow on screen instructions.

    heres and extra: installing a channel that will boot up your backups easily : http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=115706
    you will need wad manager by waninkoko : http://wii.waninkoko.info/ its the wad manager 1.3

    and to the guy that his AC didnt force an update while being on 3.2u, you probably downloaded the scrubbed/ brick blocked iso off of the pirate bay.
