Animal Crossing: City Folk, known in European and Australian markets as Animal Crossing: Let's Go to the City, is a life simulation video game for the Wii video game console. It is the follow- up to Animal Crossing: Wild World, released for the Nintendo DS in 2005, and is the third game in the Animal Crossing series.


Sound Problems

Sometimes there will be audio feedback when walking around town. Just enter a building to make it stop. Some music tracks may crackle lightly as well if using HLE or may be distorted, and strangely HLE can run slower than LLE, but on the other hand HLE can play tracks perfectly with higher performance (like normal) It is really just 50/50. DSP LLE will fix these problems if you have them.

Yellow Backgrounds

Yellow backgrounds can appear in the pattern editor, catalog and message editor keypad. May need extra testing doesn't seem to be present in new revisions.

Pattern Editor

Pattern editor does not work properly without enabling an accurate texture cache. Again, may need extra testing, works perfectly fine with out accurate texture cache enabled for me.


The camera doesn't show pictures. EFB to Ram may correct this. Just use Dolphin's screenshot button to capture images of the game.

Telescope doesn't work

The observatory's telescope does not work. Fixed by a revision before 3.5-1393.

WiiMote Menu

The Wii Motion controller UI never goes away. Fixed by an unknown revision.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
