when people draw bill my heart soars
sometimes you just gotta restart. also i have like 3 copies of wild world and none of the towns on them were farther than the first house upgrade so that was no big deal
i went to make a new wild world town and this was the first map i got god bless
yeah, when i downloaded it, it took about 7 hours
Tom nook tower’s over his costumers- “feel free to browse but try not to “arouse”.., ho ho ho
WAIT hey this blog is 4 years old this month :’-)
isnt it not illegal if you own a copy of the game tho
no, it’s still illegal. the only exception for using an emulator is using it to make a backup copy of your data if the authentic copy gets damaged, and that exception is often misinterpreted as “if i bought the game already i’m entitled to an illegally copied version of it”
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about it so I’m going to re-do my old tutorial and show you how to play animal crossing: population growing, wild world, and city folk on your computer.
Just a reminder before we start that the use of emulators to play video games is illegal.
Population Growing/City Folk
These two games use the same emulator to run, so I’ll start here.
First, go to Dolphin’s website and download the most current version. Dolphin is a Wii and Gamecube emulator, and probably the most popular one.
If you don’t know whether you have a 32 bit or 64 bit operating system, go to Start > Computer > Properties and look under System Type. If you have a Mac, there’s only one download option, so just use that.
It used to download as a .rar file that needed Winrar to open, but now it’s a self-extracting .exe file.
Click the file and run it, then select where you want it to be extracted. I’m going to put it in my downloads folder. If you want it somewhere else click the “…" to browse your files. Then click extract.
Next, for organization’s sake, you’re gonna select all the files that just extracted and put them in a folder called “dolphin” or whatever the heck you want.
The emulator is now set up and ready to use, so let’s get the games.
Before we get them, we’re gonna download Winrar, either 32 bit or 64 bit depending on your OS (which you know now). Run Winrar and install it by following the instructions on the screen. This just makes extraction a lot easier, and it’s free and harmless.
For instructions on how to use winrar, see here.
Population Growing: Download this file from The Iso Zone. Do not use ACGC isos from emuparadise, because they won’t emulate correctly. At least from my experience. Anyway, open that link and click Download File.
Enable the popup window that tries to open and click Download File again, and the download will begin.
Extract the file using Winrar. Once extracted, you’ll have a folder called Animal Crossing_7 with the .iso inside.
This is a torrent, so it’s potentially more dangerous to download than a direct download if you don’t have protection on your computer (personally, I have had no problems with this file). If you’re okay with that, click “get this torrent” next to the magnet icon and download it.
If you don’t already have software to download torrents, you’ll need one. If you’re using Windows, download the version utorrent on their home page. If you’re using Mac, download the Mac version. There are other torrenting softwares available, but utorrent is what i’m familiar with, and it’s free— but can’t always protect against viruses (again, i haven’t had any problems with it, but use with caution).
Open utorrent, go to File > Add torrent and select the torrent you just downloaded. Decide on where you want the file to download and click Ok. Find something else do do for a while, because it’ll take a pretty long time to download.
When it’s done, you’ll have a .rar file. Extract the file, and the end result should be a playable .iso
Finally, we’re going to put the games into the emulator. Open Dolphin, then click “Browse” to find your files.
Once you’ve added your files to Dolphin, it’ll look like this:
Now you can play both the gamecube and wii versions of animal crossing!!!! nice
Download the correct version of desmume for your operating system. It’ll be a .zip file, so you don’t need any special software to extract it.
Once desmume is extracted, you can download the game from here or here. I’ve used both these with no consequence. If you choose to download from cool rom, use the alternate download link with ads and a timer.
Open desmume, go to File> Open Rom and browse for the file you just downloaded and extracted.
And now you can play animal crossing wild world!!!
Note: If any of the games to not work for you, try downloading them from a different source. I’ve tested and played all of these myself, so they should work.
Anyway I hope that helped!! have fun playing video games illegally ya hooligans
