Update 1.10.0 and New Leaf game update
This is late news and some of you would already have noticed that Update 1.10.0 went live last week. In this update we've added more Game Guides, this time concentrating on New Leaf. Since the Harvest Festival and snow season are both looming in New Leaf, you'll be glad to know that both guides are available, with pictures, in the New Leaf guides section here
. These guides were previously available on a sticky on the New Leaf board, but didn't have pictures.
For those of you who may not know, Nintendo released an update to New Leaf which you can download from your console. This turns your existing New Leaf game into New Leaf: Welcome amiibo.
Since the update to the game, we've also added New Leaf Welcome amiibo cards to ACC. You can find these by scrolling down the page and looking for the Gameplay
section in the left margin. In that section you will see a link called amiibo Cards
. Click on that link to be taken to a new page with two search options. The first search option is a drop down list, and you can choose New Leaf Welcome amiibo
there. If you wish to look at all the cards available, ignore the second box called Name/Theme/Series and, click on the blue Search
You can also help us to get out guides quicker by providing as much information as possible for New Leaf. Whether the guide is related to the original New Leaf, or the updated version, we like to create our guides with information gained directly from playing. Therefore, if you feel you have something to offer, please post in the following threads:
Welcome amiibo Information
- Post here with information gained directly from playing the updated game, and let us know what's changed or different.
Roost coffee preferences
- If you have chosen to build the coffee shop as a Public Works Project, and you spend time working there, let us know how everyone prefers their coffee.
New Leaf April Fool's Day Guide
- We've got all the information we can from the animal pics in the game. So we know the favourite saying, and we have the birthdays. We would like confirmation of the other information, which is: Special Talent, Dream Job & Number Of Siblings.
Post information corrections here for AC Events, Catalogs, FAQ, Help & Staff Threads
- Here, you can specifically help with the new items found in New Leaf: welcome amiibo. Items will be added today to the My Catalog section of ACC, but these won't be all of the items. If you've been listing the new items as you've been playing, please feel free to help out by posting in this thread.
Thank you, and enjoy the new cards and guides!

Update to Dream Codes
The New Leaf Dream Code has changed format so many of you may have had an issue using it in the Friend Code Tools. The Friend Code Tool has now been updated, and we've also added space for another two Dream Codes.

ACC Countdown Clock: Is Animal Crossing Ending?
Many in the Community have noticed a clock on the bottom right corner of ACC that is counting down to noon today. Some theories about what it could be were proposed here
, and the Staff really appreciated that the countdown clock had even been noticed because we'd added it without informing the Members.
To explain the significance of this time, we first need to give you some background information. In the US, the series we now all know and love began on September 15th, 2002 with the release of Animal Crossing: Gamecube. It's hard to believe, but that was 5167 days ago - that's more than 14 years! Some of the more extreme time travelers may have also noticed that the latest possible date you can set the game to is December 31st, 2030.
What does this all have to do with the countdown clock? Well, if you do the math, noon today is exactly the halfway point of Animal Crossing: Gamecube!
That's right - 2030 seemed so far in the future, but we're halfway there.
ACC is celebrating the halfway point with a 2 week long event. The event will include the following:
3 different AC:GC themed contests, including a Sign Board Design Contest, AC:GC Pattern Contest, and Guess the Fuzzy Image Contest.
AC:GC themed weekly polls. If some of our recent weekly polls have confused you, that's because they were references to AC:GC exclusive features. Curious about them? Hop over to the AC:GC General Board
to ask. All of the weekly polls during the event will also be AC:GC themed.
A social media campaign on our Facebook
accounts. We will be featuring interesting threads on the AC:GC General Board
. If you want your thread shared with over 50 thousand people, this is your chance! If you do post about the event on facebook or twitter, make sure you use the hashtag #HalfwayThroughACGC so we see it.
SPT member and a special helper for this event, DaBraxMan
, will be streaming Animal Crossing: Gamecube live on his Twitch Channel
multiple times during the event. If you are unfamiliar with AC:GC, come watch and see what it is like.
In order to help players, we have created a brand new AC:GC Tree Guide
and Turnip Guide
. Other AC:GC guides will also be refreshed and updated during the next two weeks.
These are just some of the things that will be happening over the next two weeks. As guides get updated, and new threads or competitions appear for this event, we will add more posts to this announcement. So, please flag this thread if you want to be kept informed.
A special thanks goes out to yankees24cano
for creating this celebratory event, and many thanks are given to all those involved in this collaboration between the Staff and the Members. They've all been awesome, from the initial planning, right through to the development of ideas, organising people and ideas, and finally coding. These lovely people are:
We hope that everyone enjoys this event and that veterans of the game enjoy the second half of Animal Crossing: Gamecube as much as they did the first half. Even though it is over 14 years old, it still has a large following. If you haven't played it before, consider trying it: the game is relatively inexpensive, and you might be able to play it without any new hardware if you currently own a Wii. There are aspects of Animal Crossing: GameCube which are still unique to that game and can't be found in later versions.
Have fun reminiscing or discovering!

What do you think is going on with that countdown clock?
Since Update 1.9.0 went live, so did a countdown clock on the bottom right of most pages on ACC. There has been some speculation here
about this clock, but no correct guesses. What is this countdown leading to? It's almost zero hour and there's been no clues.
Or has there?
Could the recent Site Polls have been hints and clues to the mysterious and imminent zero hour? Is there a certain thread on a particular board which may contain a clue? Or is it something all original Animal Crossing fans already know? Will the Staff stop teasing everyone soon and get on with the reveal already?
Yes, yes, possibly, Soon.

Issue with Special Characters .... again!
Something that wasn't coded or changed in the updates deployed last night has decided to appear as a bug - and not for the first time. Once again, special characters have decided to play up. This means you will have difficulty posting special characters such as when you are using them as decoration or in keyboard art. A character will appear, but it won't always remain as the character you intended to post.
Eg - A regular bullet point may end up looking like this --> Γ’β¬Β’
The problem is more likely to affect special characters not commonly found on standard keyboards, but could apply to characters on standard keyboards too. If you wish to use special characters at this time, then please preview your posts before submitting. That way, you can instantly see which special characters are affected and which are not.
When previewing, if you see a special character that is affected you should remove it from the text box immediately. If you don't, and depending on which device you are using, that same character will increase by one each time you preview. This means that you only have to have placed it in the text box once, and if you don't remove it but preview your post five times, an altered version of that special character will show up five times and not necessarily in the same way.
Apologies again for the problem, and be assured we are looking into it.....again.
