I-----------------------------------/

Welcome to the world of Animal Crossing.  This is a one-of-a-kind game created by 
Nintendo.  
It is a communication game where you take the role of a boy/girl that makes his/her 
home in 
a village with animal residents.  The game follows real time by taking the clock 
info from 
the Gamecube's Internal Clock and applying it to the game.  The game changes 
depending on 
the time of day and what season it is.  Up to four people can have their own 
character in 
the village.  The game takes up a whole memory card, but don't worry, the game has 
one 
included for just that reason.  This game has lots of things to do and will keep you 
playing 
throughout the whole year, and many years to come.  This FAQ was created for the US 
release 
of the game which will come out September 16, 2002.  Most of this info is based on 
what is 
known about what will be in the US release.  Some things are taken from the Japanese 
version 
and will be changed once the game is released.  If you have any questions, concerns, 
comments,
 error reports, etc, mail me at KingDarian@aol.com.  Oh, and from here on out, 
Animal Crossing
 will be abbreviated to AC.  Happy Crossings...

I--05.Choo-Choo to Choosing Home----->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

   As you begin your epic journey of going to the village, you take a cozy little 
trip on 
a train.  You are visited by a strange cat named Rover that asks you a few 
questions.  These 
questions start off your character and set the time correctly.  Here's what he says.

Q1. "Excuse me, can you tell me if I have the right time?"
He then tells the time from Gamecube's Internal Clock.
   1.That's right.                 - The game keeps the time the same.
   2.No, that's off.               - This lets you adjust the time.

Q2. "Do you mind if I sit here?"
   1.Sure, go ahead.               - The cat sits down.
   2.Bottom: No way!               - ???

Q3. "What's your name?"
   You get to enter your name.  There is an 8 character limit.

Q4 "Interesting name, aha!  What do you think of it?"      
   1.It's cool!                    - Next question, assumes you are male.
   2.It's cute, isn't it?          - Next, assumes you are female.
   3.You got it wrong!             - Re-enter your name.

Q5 "You're a (boy/girl), right?"
   1.You're right!                 - Accepts the chosen gender.
   2.No, I'm not a (girl/boy)!     - Chooses the other gender.

Q6 "Where are you going?"
   You get to name your town.  There is an 8 character limit.
   1.Yup!                          - Accepts town name.
   2.You're wrong!                 - Re-enter the name of the town.

Q7 "Why are you going there?"
   1.I'm moving in to a new house. - Next question
   2.None of your business!        - ???

Q8 "Do you have somewhere to live there?"
   1.Top:       I'm not sure.      - He is shocked and can't believe you're moving 
somewhere
                                     you dont even know.
   2.Bottom:    ???                - ???

The cat then goes to call Tom Nook to meet you at the train station in the town.  He 
then comes
back, say a few things, and then leaves.  The train soon arrives.


  The train pulls into X Town Station. You are greeted by Porter as you enter the 
town for the
first time.  You can now move your character using the analogue control stick. Leave 
the train 
and meet up with Tom Nook.  He'll show you around the town, and then take you to the 
square.  
You are given a choice of four houses.  Go up to a house open the door and take a 
look inside.  
The houses will be pretty empty as you start the game. The four houses are all the 
same except
for the textures on the walls and floor.  They each include a desk and a radio.  The 
desk has a
calendar that you can use to see when certain holidays occur and you'll be able to 
make diary
entries.  When you exit the house, Tom Nook will ask you a question.

Q1Well, What do you think?  How was it, hm?
   1.Yea, it suits me.   - You want to buy this house.  Jump to Q1a
      Q1a.Are you sure?
         1a.Yes          - You will buy the house.  He tells you the house is 19,800 
Bells(the
                          local currency).  Your inventory screen pops up 
automatically and 
                          your savings of 1,000 Bells is given to Tom Nook.  This 
isn't enough,
                          but Tom Nook is nice enough to let you you pay him back 
over time.
                          He even lets you lessen your payment off by working for 
him.
         2a.No           - You go back to house selecting.
   2.It's not very good. - You get to look at another house.

After selecting a house, you are free to do ust about anything you want.  Take some 
time to 
look around the town and meet the locals.

I-----------------------------------\
I--06.Head on Down to Town----------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

When you Start up a game, the town is randomly set up, with houses and the river put 
in various
places.  The town is made up of a grid of 5x6 squares.  When you reach the edge of a 
square in
the grid, the camera will scroll across quickly, like in the NES, SNES, and Gameboy 
Zelda 
games.  The residential houses can vary, but there are a few buildings and things 
that are in 
every town.

01. There will be four houses in one square, one for each of the people that play 
the game.  
This is where you make your home.  More on this in the next section.

02. Every person in the town has his/her own home.  You can visit their homes to 
talk to them 
and look at their stuff.  You can't steal from them and some people don't like you 
barging into
their home.  Visit people to get to know them and be their friend.  You can ask for 
jobs to 
help raise money for your debt.  The people will move in and out of town every few 
days.  After
a while, people  won't be in their homes all the time and be all over the villiage.  
The town's
people also go to bed at around 10:00PM and won't allow you into their homes until 
the next
morning.  Visit people often.

03. The Garbage Dump is one of the places you will visit quite often.  You'll find 
all of the 
town people's unwanted items here.  You might even find items that you sold to Tom 
Nook here.
Everything you find here is yours for the taking.  You'll find lots of textures and 
useful 
items here.  You can also put your own unwanted items here for the other gamers to 
take.

04. The Post Office is a place where you will visit at least once a week.  Here you 
will pay 
off your debt to Tom Nook and mail letters.  You can also go here to check on how 
much money 
you still owe to Tom Nook.  You will get your mail in the morning, but if you have 
five or more
pieces of mail, they will be delivered to you at any time you go to the post 
office.  The
maximum number of letters you can save is 160, and you can only hold 10 at a time.

05. The Able Sisters Shop is also one of the places you will want to go to often.  
Here you can 
create new textures for your character to put on his clothes, umbrella, and many 
other things.
More information in the Texture section.  They are open from 7:00AM to 2:00AM.

06. The Museum is a place where you can donate things to be displayed.  In the 
course of the 
game you will dig up various fossils, catch fish and bugs, and find paintings to add 
to the 
museum.  You don't get any reward for giving stuff to the museum, but it will free 
up room in 
your home.

07. The Police Station is anoher place to get things for free.  There is a lost and 
found there 
and you can claim anything you want.  Even though its not your stuff they'll give it 
to you.  
You'll find many things here that will be helpful to you.

08. Tom Nook's shop, "Nook's Cranny," is the place you will probably visit the 
most.  This is 
where you go in the beginning to find out what part-time jobs Tom wants you to 
partake in.  You
cannot buy or sell anything until you have completed the part-time jobs to pay off 
part of your
dept.  Here you can also buy and sell items.  As you enter, Tom greets you and 
follows you 
around as you browse through the items in the shop.  Most items that you have 
already had can 
be bought from the catalog, while items that are new are on the storeshelves.  If 
you buy from 
the shelf, the item will be sold out and Tom will restock the next day.  Tom's shop 
changes 
twice.  At first its alitle shop open on a scheduled time of 9:00AM to 10:00PM.  It 
changes to 
a larger 24 hour conveniance store.  Its final form is a gib supermarket that goes 
back to a 
regular scedule.

09. The Wishing Well is a place to visit for a number of different reasons.  If you 
have 
undelivered items for animals that have moved out of the village, this is where you 
go to drop
that item off.

10. The Message Board is located in the middle of the square the four player houses 
are.  Here 
you can read about upcoming events and leave messages for other players to see.  It 
also gives 
clues on treasure hunt days.  It can hold a maximum of 15 messages.

11. The Melody Board is the place where you can change the town song to whatever you 
desire, as
long as its 10 notes or less.  More info in the Melody Section.

12. Trees are all over the town and do more than you might think.  Some trees grow 
various 
fruitthat you can eat or sell.  If you shake a tree, you will either get an item 
such as fruit, 
bells, and various other items, or an attack of angry bees that sting your face.  
You can also 
chop trees down and dig up their stumps to clear the way or make room to grow new 
trees.  To 
grow a tree, dig a hole and choose a fruit.  Then re-cover the hole with dirt and a 
tree will 
grow.  The trees are also change to match the season.  In winter time the trees have 
twinkly
lights that blink.  In Spring time the trees have falling lightly colored leaves.  
In summer 
the leaves are golden.  I fall the trees are a crisp brown.

13. Cracks in the ground tell you that there's something buried in the ground.  Use 
your 
trusted shovel to find out what it is.  You can find buried money, items, and 
statues of the 
item holder from the front of your house.

14. Shining Spots are found in the town once per day and contain money.  The amount 
varies.

15. Rocks appear on the map randomly each day.  Hit the rocks with your shovel a few 
times for
some extra moneybags.

I-----------------------------------\
I--07.Home Sweet Home---------------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

     Your house, your home, your pride and joy, your debt, all these desribe the 
place where 
you live your life in the wonderful world of Animal Crossing.  Here you can set up 
furniture, 
change the decor, and turn the lights on/off.

     Your house goes through five different stages.  When you start, your house is 
better 
described as a closet.  It has one small room with a desk, a radio, and a light.  
When your 
debt is finally paid, your house gets upgraded a second time and gets larger with a 
larger 
debt.  Once that debt is paid, you'll get a huge house with a huge debt.  When that 
debt is 
paid, a basement is added under your house, but with it comes an even bigger debt.  
When you 
finally pay off that debt your house is upgraded a fifth and final time with the 
biggest debt 
yet.  When you are done with paying your final debt, your character does its pose 
and you're 
free of debt for good.

     Outside your house, there are a few things for you to use.

I--08.I am in Your Debt-------------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

   When you buy your first house, you will be endebted to Tom Nook for the cost of 
the house.  
You will have to do some jobs for Tom to earn some Bells that go towards the 
payment.  You also
need to do these jobs to be able to buy or sell from Tom Nook or the Able Sisters or 
get jobs 
from other people.  After doing a job you can return to Tom Nook to get paid and 
learn what 
else he wants you to do.  He will only tell you once what he wants you to do, so you 
better 
remember, unless you don't mind waiting until the next day to find out what he 
wants.  When you
are ready to start working, visit Tom Nook and he'll tell you what he wants you to 
do.  You'll
then change into your work clothes and then its time to get busy.

Job.1 - The first job Tom Nook gives you is to plant flowers outside of his shop.  
You need at
        least ten slots open in your inventory, otherwise you won't be able to get 
the flowers 
        to plant.  Find places in the front of the store and plant the flowers by 
selecting 
        them from your inventory and dropping them anywhere you want.  After 
planting the
        flowers, return to Tom Nook.  He'll say, "Did you do a good job? Beauty is 
in the eye 
        of the beholder, so I guess it doesn't matter. I won't be the one getting 
laughed at."
Job.2 - The second job Tom Nook gives you is to deliver an item to an animal in the 
town.  
        He'll tell you the location of the house and all you have to do is give it 
to them.
        Tom Nook will give you a map as well as take off some of your payment for 
all your hard
        work.
Job.3 - Your third job from Tom Nook is writing a letter to one of the animals in 
the town.
        He'll give you some paper and tell you who the letter is for.  Go to the 
inventory 
        screen and select the paper and choose write.  Select the character Tom Nook 
specified 
        and then start writing.  Write whatever you want, these animals can't read.  
Next, head
        over to the post office to have it sent out.
Job.4 - Job number four is to get aquainted with the town's people.  Talk to 
everyone that 
        lives in the town and get to know them.  You'll now be able to get jobs from 
these 
        people as well. You don't need to talk to the people in the Museum, Police 
Station, 
        Post Office, Able Sisters Shop, or The Shrine.
Job.5 - The fifth job is the same as the second job Tom Nook gave you.  You need to 
give an 
        item to an animal in the town and all you need to do is give the item to 
them.  Tom 
        Nook will give you the location of the person to give it to.
Job.6 - The sixth job is to write a bulletin on the bulletin board about the store.  
It doesn't
        really matter what you write, but why not follow what he wants by writing 
something
        like "Come to Tom Nook's Store!".

After these six jobs are done, your character will do a little pose and now you will 
know how 
to do some basic things and you will be aquainted with the people of the town.(If 
you used the 
memory card included with AC, jump down to section 15 for a bonus)  Your debt isn't 
paid yet,
so you'll have to find other means to get the money to pay it off.  To pay off the 
rest, go to 
the post office.  Other animals will give you some tasks to do to get some money.

Job.1 - Most animals will ask you to deliver something to another animal.  Just take 
the item 
        and go to the animal to give it to them.
Job.2 - Another job that you will get is to send a letter.  Just go to the post 
office and send
        it off.

I-----------------------------------\
I--12.Fashion Design 101------------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

The textures can be made at Able Sisters Shop in the main part of town.  It costs 
980 bells to
make a texture in the gamecube village and nothing at all to make the textures on 
the software 
downloaded to the gameboy advance.

You get to design a 32x32 pixel square to use as a texture for your clothing, 
umbrella, walls, 
floor, door, signs, and flags.  On your clothes, it is applied to the front, back, 
sleeves, and 
once on the male's hat and twice on the female's hat.  On the umbrella the texture 
is repeated 
6 times.  On the walls it can be repeated or one big image.  On the floor it can be 
repeated or 
one big image.  On the door it is on the front and back.  On signs it is on the 
front.  On 
flags it is on the front and back.  You can have up to 8 textures at a time and you 
can save up
to 96 textures onto one memory card.

There are 16 total palettes to use to make your clothing, and each palette has 15 
available 
colors.

Palette 1 : Red(#C7383A), Orange(#D5823C), Yellow-Orange(#E0A918), Yellow(#DBC21F), 
Yellow-Green(#D3D51C), Lime Green(#ACDF16), Green(#84D052), Dark Green(#36C072), 
Teal(#26A7C6), Blue(#397BEC), Indigo(#6749DF), Purple(#9358C6), Magenta(#BA40AD), 
Black(#000000), White(#FFFFFF).


The choices of utencils for drawing include:
Pencil        : Draws one pixel at a time
Bucket        : Fills in chosen color with another color
Square        : Makes outline
Heart         : Stamp shapes into Picture
Return Arrow  : Go Back

Pressing Start exits the editing menu.

I-----------------------------------\
I--13.What a Catchy Tune------------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

On the town's melody board, you can change the town's melody.  You hear this melody 
whenever 
you talk to someone in the town.  It's also heard every hour on the hour when the 
town's clock 
tower chimes.  You'll probably change it the first time when one of the animals 
tells you that 
he doesn't like it and would like you to change it.

You can find the melody board outside of the Post Office.  Approach it and press A 
to go into
the Melody Board options screen.  You will find three options here: Download Song 
from the 
E-reader, Listen to Current Song, and Write Your Own Song.

When writing your own song, you should note that you can have full, 1/2, and 1/4 
notes.  The
melody can include ten notes.  There are three main parts in the scale:Top, Middle, 
and Bottom.
In the Top you can choose from:?,E,D,and C.  In the Middle you can choose 
from:B,A,G,F,E,D,and 
C.  And finally, at the Bottom you can choose from:B,A,G,-,and silent.

I-----------------------------------\
I--14.Tools of the Trade------------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

Another one of the unique and interactive features is the ability to trade items 
with people
that could be half way around the world from where you are.  The game generates a 
two-lined
password that you then e-mail or tell your friend on the phone and they then input 
the code
into their game and they get the item.  The password is only one line if you are 
sending an
item to a villager in your town.  Here's how to do it:

First, find an item that you'd like to give to your friend.  Mabe your friend would 
like a new
fruit, or an NES game that he doesn't have.  Take that item and go visit Tom Nook.  
Ask him to
"Tell me a Code."  Tom Nook will then say, "Tell me the name the name of the village 
and the 
person you're sending the item to."  You then enter the names in and Tom Nook will 
ask you to
confirm.  After giving him the information he will ask you for the item you'd like 
to send to
your friend.  Select the item and give it to him.  He then gives you the code.  
Write it down
and give it to your friend.

If your friend has given you a code, you have to go to Tom Nook to type it in.  Go 
up to Tom
Nook and tell him, "I have a Code."  He'll ask you to Type in the code.  After 
typing it in
Correctly, Tom will hand you your new item.  Now go have fun with whatever you got!

Remember, the codes are CASE-SENSITIVE.  Type it in EXACTLY as it is written.  This 
goes for
when you are typing in the info for your friend to when you are typing in the Code 
that your
friend gave you.  If your friend's name is "BOB", don't type in "bob".  The same 
goes for the
Town's name.

You cannot, however, send everything.  You cannot send Money, Texture, or Umbrellas.

   Throughout the game you'll have a chance to catch lots of different animals.  
They can be 
donated to the museum, sold to Tom Nook, or kept as pets at home.  The museum only 
takes one of
each animal, so if you catch another of the same creature, sell it to Tom Nook for a 
nice
price.

I--17.Items, Items, More Items------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

   Animal Crossing has lots of unique items that have many purposes.  Many can be 
bought, while 
many are special items that can only be received on special occasions.  When you get 
an item 
from someone, it will mostly be in the form of a leaf.  To find out what the item 
is, you'll 
have to use it outside to see what it becomes.  Also, most items that you pick up 
will become 
leaves.  Here's a list of what I know so far.

One of the best features found in Animal Crossing is the ability to play classic NES 
games.
Animal Crossing includes a wide library of some of the greatest NES games ever made, 
emulated

games more
fun.  The games can even be downloaded to the Gameboy Advance for fun on the go.  
Here are some
of the available games, a short bio, and some strategies and hints to make the games 
easier.

02. Pinball - 

03. Golf - 

04. Tennis - 

05. Baseball - 

06. Punchout -

I--19.Can You Keep A Secret?--------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

There are a few secrets in the game that can make it  easier to get money and other 
stuff.

1.Money Does Grow on Trees

Requirements:Shovel

If you find a glowing spot, you'll uncover a bag of money, but dont just take it.  
Re-bury the bag and soon enough, you'll have your own MONEY TREE!  This tree will 
yield three 
money bags of its own, each worth that of the original bag of money planted.  Once 
all three 
bags are taken, the tree will die.  You can find a new shining spot in the town in a 
random 
location each day.

2.I'll Need Your Signature on That

Requirements:Special Memory Card Included with Animal Crossing

Each Nintendo Gamecube Memory Cards has a hidden "signature" that decide certain 
things. 
The card included with AC has its own special "signature".  If you use the AC memory 
card to 
save your game, you will get a letter from Hiroshi Yamauchi with a Grab bag.  In the 
bag are 
two NES games and a KK Slider Song.

3.Bee Careful!!!

Requirements:Bug-Catching Net

Shaking trees will give you some very useful items.  One of the most harmful is 
actually one of
the best you can find.  If you encounter a beehive while shaking trees, quickly take 
out your
Bug-Catching Net and swipe the Beehive.  If you're lucky, you'll catch a bee.  You 
can add the
bee to your collection at the Museum, or sell it for a whopping 4,500Bells.

I--20.Don't Touch That Button!------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

Every time you end your game by resetting or turning off the system without choosing 
save and
quit, the next tome you start, a certain mole will be there waiting for you.  His 
name is Mr.
Resetti.  You don't want to mess with him.  He will rant on for minutes, scolding 
you for
not powering down correctly and won't stop until he thinks you learned your lesson.  
Here are
some of his rants:

1."Hello. Um…allow me to introduce myself. The name’s Resetti. Mr. Resetti. Have we…
met before?
At the…post office, perhaps? Yeah, whatever. Anyway, let me just say thanks for 
buying this 
game, Animal Crossing. Um…on behalf of everyone at Nintendo, I…um…I…What was the 
next part? 
Huh? Aw, forget it! That’s enough! Let’s get down to business, whaddya say? Because 
you may not
know it, but you and I got issues to discuss. First, let me tell you what it is I’m 
doin’ here.
Just so there are no misunderstandings later on. You, my friend, reset your game, 
didn’t you? 
Huh? Maybe by accident, maybe on purpose, but you pressed it. Or maybe you didn’t, 
huh? Maybe 
you just went and turned the power off without saving. Sound familiar? What? Sorry, 
what was 
that? I didn’t catch that last bit. Did you just say I’m right? You did what I said 
you did? 
Ah-HAH!!! All right, you listen and listen good, ‘cause I get real angry when I 
gotta repeat 
stuff I gotta say. Resetting…It’s like…pressing an emergency call button. You press 
it and I 
gotta come read you the riot act. See? Also, you gotta SAVE before you turn the 
power off. If 
you don’t save, it’s the same as resetting. Well, ok…That last part? I just added 
that. Why? 
Because I wanted to. Forget about other games for a minute, will ya? I’m here to 
suggest that 
you try and play THIS game, Animal Crossing, without hitting RESET. Got it? I know 
what you’re 
thinking: “Whether I hit RESET or not should be up to me. After all, it’s MY 
Nintendo Gamecube!
” Well, sorry. Rules are rules, ok? Know what I’m sayin’? Let’s not make a big deal 
out of 
this. End of discussion. This bein’ our first meeting, I’m gonna let you off easy. 
Think of 
this as a friendly warning from me to you. Oh, one more thing. This is my job. I 
take it 
seriously. So next time you see me, it’s no more Mr. Nice Mole. Oh yeah, and another 
thing I 
guess I gotta say here…I really watched my…language…here today. I’m not usually 
quite so…you 
know, so polite. If I’m bein’ truthful here, I gotta tell you…I been told I got what 
you call 
an acid tongue. I sorta…scare people. Hey, that’s…who I am. Nothin’ I can do about 
it. What, 
I’m supposed to say sorry for bein’ me? Look, it’s nothin’ personal. I ain’t tryin’ 
to be mean 
or cruel or nothin’. I ain’t a monster. For those people you get their feelin’s 
bruised easily,
I gotta apologize in advance. Just deal with it, ok? The deal is, I get paid to be 
nasty. Crazy
world, huh? Ha ha ha ha ha!!! Well, I figure it’s about time for me to get outta 
here. So uh…
Yeah. Here’s hoping I don’t have to come see you no more. Now…SCRAM!!!"

2."Listen, you get this whole reset thing started, and you’ll NEVER stop. I seen it 
a million 
times. You think this is a game? Well, ok…it is a game. But games got rules, and 
rules got 
consequences. Somethin’ funny to you? What am I doin’ over here, stand-up? You see 
an APPLAUSE 
sign up in here? Look, don’t make me come back here again. I’m serious. It ain’t 
like I enjoy 
these little field trips. Next time you see me, I’m gonna be wearing my angry hat. 
And lemme 
tell you, it’s one ugly hat. Trust me on this one. When I get my motor goin’, you’ll 
be here a 
while. Don’t reset again! Now…SCRAM!!!"

3."YOU!!! So where you goin’? Huh? Lemme ask you something. What did you just do? 
Yeah, I’m 
talkin’ to you! What do I mean? What do I mean?? YOU TRYING TO BE FUNNY?!?! 
Resetting! I’m 
talkin’ about YOU resetting the game! Listen to me, (name). You think you can fool 
me? You’re 
foolin’ yourself. It ain’t gonna happen. See, it’s like this, all right? Whenever 
you reset, 
there’s this light in the Reset Center that start’s flashin’…IT’S SO BRIGHT IT HURTS 
MY BRAIN! 
Now, don’t get me wrong. I understand that you PEOPLE make mistakes. It’s genetic or 
somethin’.
Who knows? Maybe your finger slipped. I don’t know and I don’t care. What I DO want 
is for you 
to do me a favor. Yeah, do me a favor and answer this one question. Pray tell, is 
there a RESET
Button in your world? There isn’t, is there? HUH? Of course not. That would be 
stupid. Not 
being able to do things over again? That’s…called life, and you best get used to it. 
What? What
was that? “It’s just a game”? “Don’t make a big deal out of it?” THAT’S WHAT I’M 
TALKIN’ 
ABOUT!! YOUR ATTITUDE! IT STINKS! “It’s just a game. Waaah!” What is that? I’ll tell 
you what 
it is. It’s pathetic. You oughta be ashamed. Huh? What’s that? Speak up, you reset-
happy 
cheater! You tellin’ me you never said that at all? Hmph. All right. Maybe I had 
some dirt in 
my ears. Forget about it. Let’s move on. Lemme just give you some examples of what 
I’m talkin’ 
about, ok? And make sure you PAY ATTENTION! Resetting over and over just to find an 
item or to 
erase an unfortunate incident…? Sound familiar? (name), this is just the kind of 
juvenile and 
disgustin’ style of gameplay that we want you to avoid. Where’s the satisfaction in 
cheatin’ 
through life? Take everythin’ as it comes. In it’s own time. Enjoy it all. That’s 
noble. That’s
graceful. And it’s a whole lot easier to do in this game than it is in real life, 
lemme tell 
you! (sigh) I bet you’re askin’ yourself, “How much longer is this guy gonna go on?” 
You are, 
aren’t you? Huh? Ahhh, whatever. Attention span of a flea, that’s what you got. All 
this jawin’
\tired me out anyway. I’m gonna let you go, for now, anyway. BUT you gotta promise 
me: no more.
I’m serious here. Resetting is completely OFF-LIMITS! Oh yeah, and one last thing: 
Take a bath!
You got it? Now…SCRAM!!!"

4."Hey, you! Hold up a minute! Who? You? You you YOU!!! Don’t pretend you don’t know 
who I’m 
talkin’ to, (name)! You foolin’ nobody! Get your tail over here *I pretend to run 
away and 
ignore him, since I have control over my character briefly *. “Where do you think 
you’re going,
you little twerp?! Now get over here! *I finally walk over *. You’re a real piece of 
work, you 
know that? You think I was Blathers or the mayor or somethin’? When I call you, I 
expect you to
move. And I mean MOVE! Um, what was that? That look you just gave me. What, may I 
ask, was 
that? Are you testin’ me? You don’t wanna do that! I’m warnin’ you! You’ll rue the 
day you 
moved here! And don’t gimme that crybaby ‘what did I do?’ look either! It ain’t 
gonna fly!!! 
Not with THIS mole!!! RESET RESET RESET! You just had to do it again, didn’t you? 
After all the
kindness I been showin’ you…You go and stab me in the back. What would your mother 
say? HEY! 
You were gonna go and do it again, weren’t you? Just now! Your finger was creepin’ 
over to 
reset! STOP! Just give it a rest, will ya? That’s not gonna help you outta this jam. 
I’ll just 
keep comin’ back! And stop wigglin’ around like you gotta go potty! You’re drivin’ 
me nuts! 
Just stand there and listen! I’m wastin’ my breath here, ain’t I? I mean, look at 
you. You…You 
just don’t listen. Is there somethin’ about this you maybe don’t understand? Or is 
it just that
you don’t care at all? Is that it? Listen, (name). I COULD stop and leave it to you 
how to 
play. But where would that get us? Nowhere. How ‘bout playin’ a fantasy without any 
epic 
battles, no fightin’ against the odds to save some magical realm? Wouldn’t it be 
nice to just 
lat down you sword, pick a few pretty daisies, and just be…nice? See my point? That 
ain’t life.
And this ain’t a fantasy. I’m just askin’ that you enjoy life here, and all of its…
hey…LOOK AT 
ME WHEN I’M TALKIN’ TO YOU! If you hadn’t reset in the first place…you wouldn’t be 
here getting
your tail chewed off! Ok, you ain’t got a tail, but it’s still your own fault! Whew…
You know, 
comin’ out here’s no picnic for me, either. It really wears a mole out. You think 
I’m jokin’? 
Look at that tunnel, will ya? I have to dig one of those each and every time you 
reset! I’m 
only one mole! So how about you and I stop wastin’ each other’s time? Whaddya say? 
NO MORE 
RESETTING! All right? We got an understanding? *I got an option to say Yes or No, 
and I chose 
No—of course lol.) Huh? What was that? I don’t think I heard you right just now. I’m 
gonna ask 
you again. So how about you and I stop wastin’ each other’s time? Whaddya say? NO 
MORE 
RESETTING! All right? We got an understanding? (I once again, chose No.) WHAT?!? 
AARGH!!! YOU 
MOCKIN’ ME?? If that’s how you wanna be, then you just earned yourself the chance to 
hear me 
again from the beginnin’! Yeah, you ain’t laughin’ now! You don’t like that idea all 
that much,
do ya, twerp? Well, I don’t it either! So how about you and I stop wastin’ each 
other’s time? 
Whaddya say? NO MORE RESETTING! All right? We got an understanding? (I chose No 
until I got a 
different response—these are all random responses, btw.) Hmmm…What do I gotta do to 
get it 
through your thick skull? Don’t you ever listen to what I’m tellin’ you here? Be 
honest, you 
wanna get this over with and get back to the game, now, don’t you? Am I right? . So 
how about 
you and I stop wastin’ each other’s time? Whaddya say? NO MORE RESETTING! All right? 
We got an 
understanding? (After pressing No numerous times, I heard no new responses, so I 
pressed Yes.) 
Well, all right, then! As long as we’re square, I’m satisfied. BUT, this is the last 
time! So 
help me, if I gotta do this just one more time, there’s gonna be BAD TROUBLE. Oh, 
and before I 
forget, there’s one last thing: Your hair! Wash it!!! We clear? Now…SCRAM!!!"

5.WAAHH!! What’s the deal with that thunder?! That really startled me bad! 
Seriously! Oh, umm, 
anyway, I oughta say it’s nice to meet you! I’m Resetti’s older brother. My name’s 
Don. Yeah, 
my brother can be a real headcase. Thank’s for puttin’ up with his, uh…quirks. Yeah, 
quirks. 
So, Sonny had an urgent errand that he just couldn’t pull himself away from. The 
guy’s like a 
mole dynamo. So I came in his place. Thank’s for openin’ up time in your busy 
schedule to have 
a little talk with me. So anyway, if I might being at the beginnin’…It seems that 
out Sonny’s 
been goin’ off the deep end once again. He’s been poppin’ up all over the place. You 
know, 
yellin’ at people, getting right in their faces, and causin’ havoc. On behalf of the 
family, I 
apologize. I know I’m his brother, but I’m sincere when I say that despite his uh…
outbursts…
he’s uh…he’s a good kid. He’s a bit enthusiastic, and, uh…kinda over bearin’. You 
could even 
say he’s pig-headed. Mole-headed? Either way, his social skills are real, real 
unpolished, and 
his choice of language is, shall we say, questionable. But…don’t forget his heart! 
It’s in the 
right place! Trust me, there ain’t an evil bone in his body! So, uh, just let him 
have his 
little say, and shrug it off. Don’t hold it against him. He don’t get out much. Oh, 
yeah. 
Right. Business. I guess I gotta take care of a little business, right? I don’t 
wanna get 
yelled at…Ok, here goes nothin’. Do re mi…Ahem…Ummm…Resettin’ is no good! Don’t do 
it, (name)! 
The Resetti’s suggest givin’ up your resettin’ ways…for health reasons. Got it? …
Hmmm…guess 
that should cover it. About time for me to make tunnels. See ya around. And good 
luck. Now…
SCRAM!

6.GRAAHH!! THINK YOUR GETTING AWAY WITH THAT? YOU GOT ANOTHER THING COMIN’!!! STOP 
RESETTING! 
HEAR ME? WHAT DON’T YOU GET??? …Haah…Hoo…Phew…All that screamin’ at you…everythin’ 
went all 
black…You see what you’re doin’ to me? To my health? Huh? You know, you’re the only 
one who 
pushes it this far. The only one who fails to understand. ONLY YOU! You listenin’ to 
me? ‘Cause
it looks to me like I gotta go through this whole song and dance again. When the 
Reset Alarm 
sounds, somebody’s gotta just drop everythin’ and investigate. And that somebody’s 
ME! Yeah. I 
know. It’s my job, and I gotta deal with it. I ain’t lookin’ for sympathy! But for 
cryin’ out 
loud…It don’t matter if I’m eatin’, takin’ a hot mud bath, readin’ Mole Monthly, or 
catchin’ 
some Z’s…When that alarm goes off, I gotta stop what I’m doin’ and start diggin’ 
like it was 
National Diggin’ Day! I know you can’t see it from up there, but I’m only wearin’ 
one sock! 
One! Who lives like this? This job ain’t glamorous, lemme tell ya. …Hey…You laughin’ 
at me? 
You CAN’T be laughin’ at me! I swear, just now your nose…it twitched! Yeah! I saw 
it! Your ugly
little pug nose! It was twitchin’ like mad! Ok. That’s how you want it? All right. I 
see how it
is. The chickens are comin’ home to roose now, ain’t they? If that’s how you wanna 
play, then 
that’s how we’ll play. You know, I can see you forgettin’ yourself and resettin’ 
once…maybe 
twice. It could happen, I guess. But this time? No two ways about it! It was 
deliberate! A 
calculated, cold-blooded act of villainy by a punk! No more forgive-and-forget 
Resetti for you,
pal. Oh, no. Until you show me some real regret, I ain’t leavin’! All right…what to 
do? They 
don’t exactly cover hoodlums like you in the reset-prevention manual. Askin, “You 
got that?” 
ain’t workin’. All that gets me is lip service, and we both know what that’s worth. 
Hmmm…Got 
it! Yeah. That’s good. Ok, listen up, troublemaker. Here’s what we’re gonna do. No 
more of your
worthless, I’m-sorry-Mr.-Resetti garbage. Now you’re gonna have to say EXACTLY what 
I tell you 
to! You screw it up, you do it again! Let’s see…Yeah, that’ll work. You ready? Here 
goes…Say, 
“Me = bad”! (Now, obviously for testing purposes I’m going to try otherwise, so I 
said, 
“You=stupid”) WRONG! Nope! No way, twerp! Do it over! Try again! (I did it again, 
this time, 
correct) You’re being sincere right? Do you really mean it, punk? That thing you 
just said? 
Don’t forget it! Well, all right then! As long as you and I are clear on that, I’m 
one happy, 
snappy mole. But, for the love of dirt, no more! It stops here! Oh, yeah, one last 
thing. 
Before you go to bed? Brush those teeth, will ya? Understood? Now…SCRAM!!!

I--21.What's in a Name?-------------->-----X
I-----------------------------------/

One of the best part of the game is the ability to name your character, town, and 
island.  You
also have the ability to teach the animals a 7-letter word that they'll say at the 
end of their
sentences.  Here are a few suggestions to what you could name them if you dont want 
to use your
own name.

Character(M/F)      Town           Island              Word
----------          -----          ----------          -----

1.Animal Crossing Ahead has a wonderful FAQ and the people on the message boards 
supplied a 
lot of info.  Their screenshots also showed me what wonderful items are available.
2.IGN Animal Forest+ Diaries had lots of various information that helped get me 
hooked on AC.
3.Most of the questions asked for configuration and many menus were borrowed from 
Mark Green's 
FAQ, but will be changed to whatever the English version has.
4.GameFaq's AC Forum has also helped with information.
