Hi all,

A few years ago, I got heavily invested into Animal Crossing, sank hundreds of hours into it before slowly abandoning it. My 3DS had then eventually broken (software wise) and got reformatted, replaced, the whole nine yards. Back then, I just cut my losses and called it a day. However, now, five years later, I'm regretting it. I may or may not have a NAND backup, but I don't have an otp from the dump, so it's almost entirely useless and I can't check it if pertains to the console I had that had Animal Crossing on it. I may or may not have an EmuNAND and SysNAND dump, but again - useless without otp. The only thing I definitively have is a backup of the SD card contents - the 10MB 0000001.sav in the 00008630 folder etc etc.

Now, my question isn't "how do I retrieve the save now?" but essentially what would need to happen in the 3DS hacking universe for me to be able to use this save and, hopefully, import it to a cartridge? I can already use JKSM to import the save if I somehow get it usable years from now, but what has to be "hacked" (if it even can be) to make other .savs from "other consoles" usable?

    Will they use the same Shindou-translated ROM, or the original English ROM?

    From what I've heard about the Expansion Pack, the emulator used has some noticeable input delay and/or lag...would BLJs even be possible?

    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    from what i can seem to gather there's some issues but nothing dramatic enough to severely impact what you're playing

    honestly the whole expansion pack confuses me since i thought the nes/snes games were just a neat little bonus

    Start a new thread in the 3DS board, the chat box is not the best place to ask for such advice.

    A week ago I got a payment request, through PayPal, from "[email protected]", who wanted US$64.
    Scam? Cancelled it anyway.

    The note added to it simply said "Lucky Charms?", too.

    They're all after your Lucky Charms.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.
