Nintendo DS Cheats, Cheat Codes and Hints

1.  Animal Crossing Cheats, Cheat Codes & Hints

Shoot balloons:
Sometimes at the top of the screen is a balloon. Use your slingshot to shoot it down for items.


If you find a cocunut on the beach go over to a tree by the beach cut it down dig it up and bury the cocunut. Then in a few days it will grow. Repeat this and get a coconut orchard, then eachtime u get all the cocunuts go and sell them for 500 $ each.

How To Dupe (Clone Items):

There are two people involved the Visitor and the Host ( if others come into town its not going to change the outcome unless they swipe something)

SCENARIO #1 Host has possesion of the items to be cloned.
Ok so you have some items or bells (items dont matter you can clone anything).. lets assume that you have these items in your town and you and your buddy want to clone them.

1. You are the Host you open your gates to wifi and your Buddy ( the Visitor ) comes into your town.
2. Host dops the Items on the ground
3. Vistor Picks the Items UP.
4. Host hits his [start] button to initiate a SAVE & CONTINUE.
5. After the save the Visitor drops all the items you want to clone back on the ground.
6. Host hits his [start] button to initiate a Save & Continue. only this time the VISITOR must pay special attention because he will have to shut off the power to his DS as soon as the Little spinning arrow spins around 6-� times.
7. the Host will WAIT until he/she Lags out of the WiFi connection and eventually gets the Blue Screen HOST DOES NOT POWER DOWN and eventually hits the [A] button to escape from the blue screen and restart his DS

SCENARIO #2 the visitor has possesion of the items to be cloned
1. You are the Host you open your gates to wifi and your Buddy ( the Visitor ) comes into your town.
2. Visitor drops his items to be cloned onto the ground.
3. Host hits his [start] button to initiate a Save & Continue. However the VISITOR must pay special attention because he will have to shut off the power to his DS as soon as the Little spinning arrow spins around 6-7 times.
4. The Host will WAIT, until he/she Lags out of the WiFi connection and eventually gets the Blue Screen and eventually hits the [A] button to escape from the blue screen and restart his DS
After you come out of your house (without seeing resetti because of wifi) Host and Visitor should have duplicated the items without incedent. There is no way this can ruin your game; if the visitor powers down too early then he will still have the items in his bags but the host will not. if the visitor powers down to late the Host will have the items still and the visitor will not. There is not a possible way for something negative to happen. And Yes you can do this DS/DS also.
