Then the event is active. the bunny should be somewhere on the island. The actual townspace has to wait untill the 12th.
I've been exploring the island for a while now, but still no bunny... Hopefully the event will trigger tomorrow, because I have no clue why it isn't working right now

Hi guys and thanks for this guide. I have only one question. Seems it's work for me, got 1.1.1a and eggs everywhere in game, but can't find this d... rabbit !! So I wonder if the event is fully active or not ? Maybe I've to wait a day, a hour to make the rabbit appeared.

It probably depends on your region and timezone as he appeared in the square in front of the nook building. Most likely your timezone is conflicting.

Note :

Backup BCAT "Animal Crossing New Horizons"

Put folder directories on /JKSV/Animal Crossing New Horizons/<Yours ac_bcat>\directories

Tree :

Restore BCAT Animal Crossing New Horizons with JKSV

Run the Game and see version : 1.1.1a and look for the rabbit

To update the game from 1.1.1 to 1.1.1a from another switch that has it active.

No that doesn't work. The legit way is to have your system clock synced online, and open the game with an account that is linked to nintendo. And be conected when you launch the game.

So no syncing with a system that has it locally doesn't work.

I can't even get the BCAT to backup is there a trick or am I literally just "JKVS -- ACNH -- NEW -- name it -- open on PC no BCAT just a villager folder. I add the directories folder to the directory, restore it and nothing

You are backing up you savefile from the system folder in JKSV. You need to backup the animal crossing BCAT file from the BCAT folder in JKSV...

@Sweitt

Very important run jksv holding [r] sxos ( not in applet mode )

and note this :

  • BCAT Save Animal Crossing New Horizons
- Personnal passphrase and event (Easter Event for exemples...)

  • DEVICE Save Animal Crossing New Horizons
Real save with
Villager0 < (savegame village)
main.dat < Option /parametters etc ....
mainHeader.dat

/!\ VERY Important do not restore if the passphrase.bin file is not present when restoring the "BCAT Save Animal Crossing New Horizons" backup

Did this earlier on my switch and had to talk my mate through it. Nice to have a dedicated thread now. I'm hoping it's going to be this simple for the rest of the events. Anyway this method could be patched out in future updates (or am I just talking noob nonsense)?

Probably what happen to me, i did restore my passphrase.bin over my Device Save and broke the save at the same time. My wife just dont want to start again, good for me ! I've looked through my emunand save and jsk for over an hour with my multi BCAT stuff and saw no village savegame so i'm done.
Read the rules!!!!

Yeah this won't be patched. This is just the way things work. You either have a full update or this.

Why would you do that to your wive? I would have triple checked everything before modifying stuff like that. Especially if my wives plays it...
