Terminology

Cataloging
The act of one person dropping an item, another person picking up that item,
and then that person dropping the item, and the first person picking it up. This
allows the person who picks up the item to "catalogue" it, so that they can buy
it from their catalogue in their game.

Complete Checklist
Refers to having all of the bugs/fish caught for the specific month you're
talking about.

Cross-pollinating
The act of planting to flowers in such a way that there is a single space in
between them. This usually causes a hybrid of the two flowers to sprout up
in that empty space.

Nintendo Items
Refers to items that reference other Nintendo games, but are not mentioned
at all in the official player's guide. These include the Metroid, the Master
Sword, the Arwing, the Blue Falcon, the Pikmin, and the Triforce.

TP
Refers to the current day's Turnip Prices at your town.

TT/Time Traveling
Refers to setting the clock on your DS forwards/backwards in order to gain
an unfair advantage.

WTB
Stands for "Want To Buy".

WTC
Stands for "Want To Catalogue".

WTS
Stands for "Want To Sell".

WTT
Stands for "Want To Trade".



FAQ1 (What Is Animal Crossing?)

1)Animal Crossing?
Animal Crossing is the Nintendo GameCube game released in September
15th of 2002 in North America. It was based off of Doubutsu no Mori
(translated as "Animal Forest", an N64 game, which was later ported to
the GameCube in late 2001 in Japan as Doubutsu no Mori Plus. The
graphics on the GameCube version may seem lacking due to the fact that it
is basically a ported N64 title. This game is not a port of the N64/GameCube
game. It is entirely new.

2)What's the story of this game?
Well, the game has no story meaning it has no end. Basically you're moving
to a new town, to start a new life. If you have played Harvest Moon, or
maybe even The Sims, you'll know what I'm talking about. From the start you
get a house, and it gets wherever you want it to go. You can either start
putting furniture in your house, go fishing, catch bugs, and many other
activities.

3)Wait.. you're telling me this game is about a life and that's it?
Haven't played Harvest Moon, right? It's about farming and as addictive as
crack (just as this game). There are just tons of things to do.

4)What differences will this game have?
Well, it will be one of the first online titles for the DS, it won't
have NES games, there will be more customization for your character, the
train is gone, replaced by something gate-looking, alot of new items, and
much more additions. Check the Main Facts section for a large list of
differences.

5)So is this a MMORPG?
No, according to interviews, you will be able to have only 3 buddies
visiting your time at the same time, so I don't see any Massive in there p

6)Can I use my Dial-up connection?
Many people claim that they can, however it requires patching your
hardware, which is risky and likely to break your modem. Also, the
connection would lag horribly, so it is generally accepted that you
cannot do it.

7)What exactly does the top screen do?
The top screen shows the sky. At night you can see the moon and the
stars, and you can also see constellations that you've drawn with Celeste.
Also, occasionally you will see a balloon or a UFO, which you can shoot
down with the slingshot. More information in the Dual Screen Usage
section.

Is your face determined by how you answer things at the
beginning just like in the last game?
Yes, your face depends on how you answer three question to Kapp'n,
the Taxi Driver, at the beginning of the game.
http//www.animalxing.com/faceguideww.php

9)How many neighbors can I have at once in my town?
You can have 8 neighbors total. You begin the game with 3.

10)Are there cars in this game?
Cars are not used to travel, other then when you arrive in Kapp'ns
taxi at the beginning of the game. When you leave your town you walk
out.

11)Are there two versions of this game (dead rumor)?
No. It's just a rumor.



FAQ2 (General Information)

Q How do you get the Golden Shovel?
A Plant a normal shovel (you will need to shovels, one to plant and
one to dig the other one up). Wait 24 hours (I generally recommend
waiting a little bit longer, just to be sure). Dig it up. Tada!

Q What does the Golden Shovel do?
A It lets you plant and grow money trees (more in this section).

Q How do you get the Golden Axe?
A You have to complete a long trading quest. First buy a red turnip
(from Joan on Sundays). Then give the Red Turnip to Wendell the
next time you see him. He will give you either the Turban or the
Country Guitar. Give the Turban to Sahara the next time you see
her. She will give you either the Massage Chair or the Red Vase.
Give the Massage Chair to Tortimer the next time you see him (on
a holiday or during a Fishing Tourny/Bug Catching Contest). He
will give you the Scallop. Lastly, trade Pascal the Scallop for the
Golden Axe the next time you see him (he walks around your
beach at a random time on a weekday each week). Lots of people
auction off Massage Chairs on the online board, so if you want
to bypass most of the steps you can easily get one there.

Q What other things can I get in the Trading Quest?
A You can get pictures of K.K. Slider, Tom Nook, and
Pascal. When you give the Scallop to Pascal he may give you his
picture instead of the Golden Axe. Wendell might give you the
Country Guitar instead of the Turban, which will get you K.K.'s
picture if you give it to him. Saharah might give you the Red Vase,
which you give to Redd to get the Safe, which you give to Tom
Nook to get his pic.

Q What does the Golden Axe do?
A It never breaks.

Q How do you get the Golden Fishing Rod?
A You must catch every kind of fish.

Q What does the Golden Fishing Rod do?
A It attracts fish better, so they always come to you.

Q How do you get the Golden Slingshot?
A Shoot down 15 items with a normal Slingshot. The next present
you shoot down will be the Golden Slingshot.

Q What does the Golden Slingshot do?
A It fires three pellets instead of one, so it's easier to hit things.

Q How do you get the Golden Bug Catching Net?
A You must catch every kind of bug.

Q What does the Golden Bug Catching Net do?
A It's twice as big as the regular bug catching net.

Q How do you get the Golden Watering Can?
A You must do whatever Pelly tells you to do when you talk to
her about the environment, until she thinks it's fine. Keep that up
for 15 days and she'll give you the Golden Watering Can.

Q What does the Golden Watering Can do?
A According to Nintendo Power #200, it has no special
properties. However, according to tests done by people
who have it we have found that it turns dying black flowers
into golden flowers.

Q When do Balloons come?
A "...A balloon present wil only appear between the
times of 10 am and 4 pm, and it will randomly appear at
a time where the minutes have a 4 or 5 in the last digit.
Once a balloon appears, another one will appear either
10 minutes after, 20 minutes after or 30 minutes after,
no sooner and no later.

Note Gulliver does not follow this paatern, he appears
between the times of 6 am and Noon on a random
wekday, his appearance i have not figured out yet."
~Special thanks to BIGBEAK on the Nintendo WiFi
Message Boards for discovering this information.

Q How do I keep my White Turnips from spoiling?
A First get a table and put it in your house. Then
surround yourself with items you can walk over, like
wallpapers (make sure you're standing on one as
well). Then look at the table and "drop" your
White Turnip. You should drop it on your table.
The turnips you put on a table will never spoil, even
past the Saturday after you buy them.

Another way is to figure out what day Redd comes.
The day before he comes put nine white turnip
packets on the spot where his tent should appear
the next day. Wait until he comes the next day, and
then go talk to Booker. Your turnips will then be in
the lost & found. White Turnips don't spoil in the
Lost & Found, so you can leave them there as long
as you want.

Q What do shooting stars do?
A If you see a shooting star, and you are looking up
towards the top of your town, you can press A (you
shouldn't be holding down L/R/B or anything). If you
do it right when the shooting star appears then your
character will look like (s)he's praying, and then the
next day you will get a letter from Wishy the star. The
letter will have a lucky item in it (like the Lucky Gold
Cat).

Q What is the purpose of the Boondox?
A When you donate to the Boondox you can get
special items. You must donate large amounts of
money all at once. 10k will get you the Green
Feather, 200k will get you the Blue Feather,
500k will get you the Yellow Feather, 800k will
get you the Red Feather, 1,100k will get you the
Purple Feather, 1,400k will get you the White
Feather, and the grand finale, 6,400k, will get you
the Rainbow Feather. The feathers have no real
purpose, other than brag value.

SIDE NOTE You can wear the feathers in your
hair.

Q What do Snowmen do?
A If you make a "good" snowman then he will
send you snowman furniture in the mail the next
day.

Q How do I make a good snowman?
A The body should be about as big as your head,
and the head should be rolled until you can start
to hold onto it and control it. Once you can control
it you should immediately put it on top of the body.

Q What is the point of becoming friends with
Brewster/Sable?
A We don't really know. Many people claim it
increases your luck, but we don't know for sure.

Q What do pitfall seeds do?
A If you plant them and someone walks over them
then they fall into a pitfall, just like you do if you
accidentally walk over one.

Q How does Nook's point system work?
A When you buy things you earn points. When you
reach certain points you get bonuses. 300 points
earns you a membership, which doesn't really mean
anything, but it also gets you a model. You get Nook
store models every time you reach a new "level", and
these occur at 5k points (5% discount), 10k points
(10% discount), and 20k points (20% discount).

Q Does buying from the catalogue count towards
points?
A Yes, it does.

Q Does paying your mortgage count as points?
A No.

Q How do I tell if a traveling universal character
(like Wendell or Saharah) is in my town?
A Talk to Booker and ask him what's new. He
should tell you who's in your town at the current
time.

Q I've made topics to advertise that I have [insert
some universal traveling character here] in my
town, and I'm allowing people to come in and talk
to them, but I always get shot down by people who
say I'm stupid. I don't get it.
A When people enter your town all the travelers
vanish (like Joan, Pascal, Gracie, etc). That would
be why you are so dumb (just kidding).

Here is a list of the universal characters, or characters that appear in
every game.

Also, when I say you can find someone in "The Roost", I do not mean
everyday. It seems to be random, every other day, or something like that,
depending on your game.

-Blanca
A white cat with on odd face. She appears occasionally if you access the
WiFi features of the game, and she will ask you to design her face for her.
It works just like making a pattern, and she can take your face pattern to
other towns and show people. You can request that she not come to
your town by accessing the options menu via your phone.
-Blathers
A dark brown owl. Runs the museum. He appraises fossils and takes
donations for the museum.
-Booker
A light brown fat dog, one of the town guards who stays at the town gate.
Talk to him to find items in the Lost-And-Found box, which you can then
take.
-Brewster
A gray pigeon. He runs "The Roost", the Cafe' underneath the museum.
He sells coffee for 200 bells. He will begin to talk to you more if you buy
coffee daily.
-Celeste
A red owl. Supposedly Blather's sister. She operates the telescope at
the top of the museum. Talk to her to make constellations.
-Copper
A skinny light brown dog, supposedly Booker's brother. He is the second
town guard. Talk to him to leave town or open your gates.
-Dr. Shrunk
A pinkish salamander who comes to your town randomly. When he visits
he will give you the power to use an emoticon, which allow you to display
your emotions like the animal's do.
-Gracie
A yellow Giraffe. She comes to your town on a random day, and stays
outside town hall with her car. She will quiz you on fashion and then gives
you a shirt depending on how well you do.

-Gulliver
A white pelican. He flies in a UFO, which you can shoot down between
6AM and 12PM on weekdays. When you do he gives you an item. He
is currently the only way we know of to get the Metroid legally.
-Harriet
A pink poodle who runs the beauty shop at Nookingtons. Can be found
at "The Roost" at 11PM. If you become good friends with her (by talking
to her a lot) then she will allow you to get all of the haircuts, not just
your gender's haircuts (so girls can get boy haircuts and boys can get
girl haircuts).
-Joan
A dark brown boar who sells White and Red turnips every Sunday in
the morning.
-K. K. Slider
A white dog, generally accepted as the mascot of Animal Crossing. He
carries a guitar, and appears every saturday night, starting at 730, at
the Cafe' under the museum. Between 8 and 12 PM he will play you a
song, and at the end he will give you a bootleg copy of it.
-Kaitlin
A small skinny yellow kitten who comes to your town if you commonly
use WiFi. She says she's from the town of someone on your friend list
who's added you, and she wants you to take her back to that town.
-Kapp'n
A green cabdriver who takes you to town. It would appear he is a
Kappa, a creature from Japanese mythology that usually appeared
as a turtle-like humanoid beast who lived underwater.
-Kaitie
Same as Katilin, except she's rather plump. It is random which one
comes to your town.
-Katrina
Comes to your town at a random time and offers to tell your fortune
for 100 bells. The fortune heavily effects you for the day, and it can
be good or bad. You can have your fortune "cleansed" for 10k.
-Lyle
Lyle is a gray-blue otter. He is an insurance salesman. He
appears outside your home on the first Saturday after you move
in. He sells 3,000 Accident Insurance. I you buy it then he will
send you 100 bells in the mail when you get stung by a bee.
He returns the following Saturday, selling Damage Insurance.
If bought he will pay you a certain amount of money when you
buy fake paintings from Redd. He also makes you take a
questionnaire. One of the questions is when Redd comes.
The day you give him is the day Redd will appear in your town
from then on.
-Mabel
A dark blue porcupine who runs the Able Sister's clothing shop
with her sister.
-Mr. Resetti
Mr. Resetti is a brown mole who appears when you turn off your
game without saving (aka reseting). Every time you reset he comes
and yells at you. Eventually he will make you type out things, or use
a meter to show how sorry you are.
-Pascal
A beaver who appears on your shoreline at a random time each
week. He gives you a random item when you talk to him, and then
dives into the ocean.

Redd is an orange fox who appears soon after you come to
your town. He will come on a specific day, after you talk to
Lyle. He sells three items each time he comes, and they are

ONLINE/WIFI

Animal Crossing Wild World (or ACDS, as it has come to be known) is online,
using WiFi. In order to access the WiFi features of the DS you need to be at a
"hotspot" or have a wireless router that is compatible with the DS.

Hotspots include places like Starbucks, however they generally charge money
in order to use their services. McDonalds is Nintendo's official hotspot partner,
and most McDonalds locations offer free working WiFi for the DS.

Nintendo also makes a USB Adaptor for use with the DS, however it works
with Windows XP only, so Mac/Linux/Pre XP users will not be able to use it.

Using a wireless router with the DS requires fast connection, so you need DSL
or Cable, not Dial-Up. You also need a DS compatible wireless router. A list of
these can be found at http//www.nintendowifi.com/

It should be mentioned that despite what Nintendo has said, most Belkin router's
are not compatible with the Nintendo DS for reasons that are mostly unknown. If
you have Belkin router then you should check the NintendoWiFi.com forums,
because many people have created patches that you can use to get your DS
working with certain kinds of Belkin's, however there are some that cannot be
fixed, so they just don't work. If you are trying to purchase a router then the
highest recommended one is the Linksys WRT54G, or the Linksys
Wireless - G Broadband Router. Setup is easier than with most other routers,
and it has no problems with the Nintendo DS.

The actual way that this game is "online" is rather simple. You can go to other
people's towns and they can come to yours. You can do things like have
fishing contests, and bug catching contests, and in the Spring/Summer there
is apparently a soccer minigame. The main draw to online, though, is the
chat feature. Coming to other people's towns in real time also makes it
very easy to trade items, plus you can talk to other people's neighbors and
shop at their stores, and things like that

ABOUT ROUTERS/OTHER ONLINE INFO

So you're not really sure how this technology works, eh? Well, this section
will be also useful if you're planning to buy any other online games, such
as the next Bomberman, Mario Kart, Harvest Moon and many other online
titles.

"Wi-Fi actually means 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g. If you have a
wireless router, take a look at it and you should see 802.11 somewhere on
it. Mine says 802.11b right under the model number. So, as far as I know
that means that I could be playing my DS online upstairs in my room
connected wirelessly to my router to my broadband internet. Also, only the g
standard is backwards compatible. 802.11a operates on a different frequency
to the b and g standards and as such is not compatible with either the b or
g standards. 802.11b was the initial standard that is used for wireless
internet access. It provides speeds of up to 11 Mbps (Megabits per second)
for wireless data transfers and is the standard that the DS will use.
802.11g can be compatible with both b and g, but can also be set to only
broadcast the g standard which is 54 Mbps. In the case that a router was set
to g only then b devices such as the DS wouldn't be able to connect to
it.- Taken from www.animalcrossingonline.com

Also, I find a popular question is "If I am 'hosting' a game and I disconnect/
go out of range what happens?" The answer is that the other person gets a
message that says there is "lag" and it will disconnect in 15 seconds if the
signal does not reconnect. In 15 seconds the people who were in your town
will load their last save.



RPGdaemon's ONLING FAQ

1)What will I need to get online?
From what we've heard you will need atleast an 802.11B router and a
high-speed (no dial up) internet connection. Other things may be required.

2)What if I don't have a wireless router?
Get one. The cheapest ones are only $25.00 USD.
Appended The most recommended router for the DS is the Linksys WRT54G,
which sells for $75. Many companies (like Best Buy) are offering mail in rebates
and things like that for this specific router, however.
~V Jasper

3)I'm worried about neighbors stealing my connection. what do i do?
Encrypt it. For instructions on how to do this, see your router manual.
Appended The Nintendo DS is equipped to handle a WEP secured signal.
This means that you can set up your router to use WEP encryption (a rather
old form of encryption), and then anything that uses your router will need a
WEP key. This will keep other people from stealing your connection, because
they won't have that key.
~V Jasper

4)How far will the signal reach?
Depends. On the 802.11 B and G (which operates on the same frequency as B
but offers higher transfer speeds) you can get up to 300 ft if your
connection is really good. 802.11 A is fairly expensive (i'm not sure if
nintendo will have support for this) but opperates on a higher frequency.
Expect 150 ft at most from A but you also get a much more stable connection.
Appended Most routers will connect to your entire home, especially if you
have your router set up in the middle of your home. I live in a one story house,
and my router is set up at one corner of the house. I can get reception everyone
in my house except at the very opposite corner.
~V Jasper

5)Can I play regular games online?
No. they don't even have the software for router connections.

6)What if I have dial-up?
Well it could work. But expect extremely laggy gameplay (due to over the top
latency). It's better to have highspeed anyway.

7)What if i have highspeed dial-up?
Doesn't do crap. It only takes commonly accessed data and stores it on their
servers so it doesn't take as long.

Can I browse the web with my DS?
As of yet, no.



Sonic01864's "How To Set Up A Router"

To set-up the router for use
You need to set a SSID, WEP encrytion to (keep leechers away),
Probably a channel, and type of network. Windows has a set-up wizard
to help you with this but you still need to input the information.

Todo this you access its set-up page by going to 192.168.xx.xx. Fill in
teh xx's with the address given to you in your instruction booklet.

A SSID identifies your network. Its recoomended not to set it as
something obvious but most wireless cards can be set to "ANY"
and will just find it.

WEP encrytion is a set of numbers and letters that is used as
athurization for use of the network.

Channnel is simply what channel it is broadcasted on. 1-12

Type of network is ad-hock or infastructure. You want infastructure.
Adhock is for direct communication between 2 devices.



DUAL SCREEN USAGE

During normal situations the top screen shows the sky and the bottom
screen shows the world. Things, like floating presents and UFOs, can
appear on the top screen. You can use the Slingshot to shoot a rock
straight up and try to hit whatever is up there down.

When your character goes inside a building the top screen goes dark.

When you open your set of menus they take up the entire bottom
screen, and the top screen shows what would have been displayed on
the bottom screen. This allows you to drag items onto your character
using the bottom screen, and then look at what your character looks
like on the top screen, and is rather useful.



MORE CUSTOMIZATION

After you complete your errands for Tom Nook (which basically means you can
really start playing) you are then able to use a free Shirt, Hat, and Umbrella.
You do so by dragging patterns onto the Shirt, Hat, and Umbrella icons. You
can also buy clothes, hats, umbrellas and glasses for yourself. You can also
make patterns to put on your generic cloths, hat, and umbrella.

Your generic hat that you drag patterns on has horns, however the other hats
do not.

Once Tom Nook upgrades his shop into a Nookingtons there will be a salon in
it. In that salon you can get your hair changed (both the style and the color),
based on how you answer a number of questions.

Info here...
http//www.animalxing.com/hairstyles.php

The Able Sisters sell eight patterns, three shirt, one umbrella, and two
special head items a day.

FENG SHUI HELP

Like the original Animal Crossing, Wild World also has a form of Feng
Shui. Anything that relies on random values will yield a more benefit
outcome if you increase your Feng Shui. Basically, if you increase
your Feng Shui then the RNG in the game gets points added to it, so
better stuff happens to you.

Feng Shui works almost exactly the same, except there is no Orange.
Granted that "up" is North, and "down" is South, then you should place
Yellow items in the West, Red items in the East, and Green items in the
South. Certain items have double colors, and certain items carry universal
Feng Shui, which means they will increase your luck no matter where you
put them. These items include items with the word "festive" in their name,
and items with the word "lucky" in their name.

Here is how Fen Shui works in different houses.

yy = Yellow
rr = Red
gg = Green
yg = Yellow/Green
rg = Red/Green
nn = Nothing

4x4

yy . yy ... rr . rr

CLANS

Clans are, quite simply, groups of people who join together in order to create
a group. Clans generally defeat the purpose of Animal Crossing, since the
entire idea of the WiFi is to create friends, not clans.

Most clans do not make it in the world of ACWW because the game is not
centered around competition. Consequently, most clans get bored and
disband.
