    Hey guys, just a heads up if you can play Animal Crossing, you can now install the digital game twice and have two towns!

    If you've installed the original version (00000864), you can download the CIA of the 'Welcome amiibo' version which has a new game ID (0000198f) and is classed as a completely different game!

    I couldn't find it on freeshop so you'll have to get the CIA from one of those sites, but if you've ever wanted to make a new town without buying an extra copy, then do this! :lol:

    What's the difference between the normal and the Welcome Amiibo versions?

    They're basically the same game, just the 'Welcome amiibo' version has all the updates and added content up to version 1.5, with the original game you have to manually install the updates to get all the new features like Wisp and the RV campgroung.
    Installing the game twice might sound weird to non-AC fans, but if you're an AC-addict like me and you want to build a new town without deleting the old one, this is a new option!

    Great, I can have my 6th save now.
    I have the JAP cia, EUR cia, USA cia, USA legit cart, USA 3DS rom :D
    They're all for testing codes, so it's just mayors named with random names and towns that I go to troll random people on my friend list sometimes :rofl2:

    Reminds me, I should rip both my save and rom one of these days, then it'll be back to the good old WW days of having 2 saves.

    Hey I have a question does the new garden_plus.dat work like the old acnlram.bin in a hex editor?

    No, you can hex edit but then you have to update the checksum. Easiest way is to hex edit whatever, load the save into the save editor then save it, the save editor will update the checksum.

    You can talk about tumblr if it's related to the topic at hand.

    If your comments are unrelated you can always make a blog post or something.

    If you want to save room on your SD card, you can keep one Animal Crossing game installed and just use JKSM to swap between save files.

    I have an actual game card vers. of the game, so if I install the CIA I basically get a whole new town to mess up?

    Sweet.
