So yesterday I played Animal Crossing: New Leaf throughout the whole day. It was a profitable day in nearly every sense possible within the game:
- Tortimer showed up, and as far as I know the boat to the island would be showing up today (still might?);
- I collected roughly 40,000 bells in a single day (as indicated above, without going to Tortimer Island);
- I got a bunch of new fish which I donated to the museum, some of them considerably rare, as well as fossils;
- I got new furniture that I really liked, including the Block Floor and the Balloon Clock (I think those were the names of those items);
- And some other stuff.
Come the end of the day, and not having saved in the past 24 hours, I decide to use the 3DS browser to check an Animal Crossing wikia. After having accomplished what I set out to do when I loaded the browser, I hit the home button on my 3DS, and that was that. It froze in the loading screen.
So, feeling quite frustrated by losing all this stuff, I'm wondering if any of you savvy video-game players knows of a way to edit 3DS save files. There seems to be some (poorly-reviewed) hardware that's sold in Japan which caters my situation, but ordering something from Japan seems pricy, and I haven't really figured out if that hardware offers a layman-friendly UI, or if I would have to cluelessly try to edit hex files or something crazy like that.
Any help here?
P.S.: Don't use the 3DS browser.
