How to Use the E-Reader

-Necessary Equipment: In order to use the E-Reader, you will need all of the
 -Gamecube and Animal Crossing CD (duh...)
 -Gameboy Advance
 -Gameboy Advance to Gamecube connector
 -At least one Animal Crossing E-Reader card. ONLY Animal Crossing E-Reader
  cards work with Animal Crossing. Makes sense, right?

You should be able to get all of the above mentioned items from any gaming
store or even your local Wal-Mart or similiar store. Animal Crossing E-Reader
cards are pretty difficult to find, however. I would suggest that you try your
luck on eBay if you really want to piece together a complete set. You'll 
probably pay a lot that way, but at $3 for 5 cards (and you're going to get a
lot of repeats) you're going to be paying a lot anyways.

-Put It All Together: The next thing you need to do is connect all your goodies
together. The E-Reader slides into the Gameboy Advance cartridge slot. If you
have any of those newfangled light screens or any other GBA toys, you'll have
to remove them to use the E-Reader. If the E-Reader is properly inserted into
the GBA, the little connector on the front should fit into the hole in the
top of the GBA as well. 

Next you want to connect your GBA to your Gamecube. The connector fits into the
very top of your E-Reader. Plug the other end into the controller 2 slot of the
Gamecube and your GBA and Gamecube should be able to talk to one another. At
this point your GBA looks like some kind of freakish monster, but that's okay!

You're in business now. Just boot up your Animal Crossing game and you're good
to go.

-Prepping the E-Reader: In order to use the E-Reader, you must first prepare it
to speak with the Gamecube. To do so, turn on your GBA with the E-Reader
attached to it. On the title screen, press the A Button to bring up the main
menu. Don't be frightened by the magical talking voice! Select "Communication"
from this menu. Next, select "To Nintendo GameCube". Make sure your GBA and
your Gamecube are connected and then press the A Button. Your GBA will then
display "-Connecting-" and will wait for the proper signal from the Gamecube.

Now you want to go to any of the following locations in your Animal Crossing
game: the Post Office, the town tune bulletin board (by the Post Office), or
the Able Sister's Tailor Shop. Bring up the E-Reader menu in the location of
your choice and choose "Prep e-Reader". Ensure that your GBA is awaiting the
signal from the Gamecube and then keep pressing the A Button until your
Gamecube starts talking to your GBA. This will take a little less than a minute
to complete. After the first time, you won't need to prep the E-Reader again
until you turn off your GBA. Now it's scanning time!

-Scanning a Card: Depending to the type of card you wish to scan (see Types of
Cards section below), go to the appropiate place and you will be prompted to
scan a card. If you look at your card you will see a bar on one side. This is
the bar that you are wanting to scan. You want to slide the card through the
E-Reader much like a credit card. Hold the card firmly and slide it through in
a fluid motion. It's easiest to slide it somewhat slowly. If you slide it too
quickly, it probably won't read correctly. Just use a nice graceful motion and
you should be okay. I always leave my GBA laying on my desk when I do this and
just slide the card through horizontally. Whatever method you choose, if you
get the card to read properly you will get your special reward, whatever that
may be. You may do this process for as many cards as you want to in any given
play session.

Types of Cards

There are three basic types of cards that you can get for use with Animal
Crossing. These are as follows.

-Character Cards: Character Cards have a picture of one of the characters in
the game on the front and some information about that character on the back.
Along with this information there is also the E-Reader bar and a code similiar
to the ones given by the game when you trade items with friends.

To use Character Cards, you first want to go to the Post Office to use the
E-Reader Transfer Machine. Make sure to prep the reader (see the How to Use the
E-Reader section above) and then choose to scan a card. Slide your card through
the E-Reader when prompted and a letter will be mailed to your home. This
letter will be from the character on the card and will have an item attached to

To get the second item, you must use the code written on the back of the card.
Write a letter to any member of your town (they don't have to be the character
pictured on the card) and write exactly the following:
(Key symbol)(return character)
(First line of code)(return character)
(Second line of code)
The code must be entered EXACTLY as it appears on the card. Be wary of letters
and numbers that look alike (ie, lower-case L and capital i). If you typed
everything in correctly, in a few days after mailing the letter you should
receive a reply written by the character on the card. This letter will have the
second item attached to it. Do NOT email me asking for the codes. Nintendo of
America very politely asks for people not to give out these codes if they
haven't bought any E-Reader cards, so I'm not giving the codes out. There are
other FAQs without morals where you can get the codes if you really want to.

To get a third item, you must use the code written on the back of the card.
This time, send it to the person pictured on the card. You should get another
different item in the mail from them.

-Design Cards: Design cards have a picture of a character wearing a unique
design on a shirt and an umbrella. To gain access to this pattern, you need to
go to the Able Sister's Tailor Shop. Talk to Mable Able and in the first set
of options choose "Other things". From there, if you have already prepped the
E-Reader (see How to Use the E-Reader section above) choose "Read card". Slide
your card through the E-Reader when prompted and you'll get the special pattern
to do with as you please.

-Town Tune Cards: These cards have a unique image of K.K. Slider on the front
and the notes for a town tune on the back. These tunes correspond to specific
K.K. Slider songs. To use these cards, go to the town tune bulletin board 
(beside the Post Office) and after reading the board, press R to bring up the
E-Reader menu. From here you can prep the E-Reader (see How to Use the E-Reader
section above) and scan a card. Once you scan the card, the town tune will
change to the tune on the back of the card. Even without an E-Reader, you can
manually type in these themes if you really want them. Do NOT email me asking
for the notes to these themes because I will ignore you.

Card Trading

Are you a few cards short of that complete set? Do you have a favourite
character and you can't seem to get his or her card from packs? Are you tired
of having all those duplicates laying around the house? Well, here's a group
for you! This is a Yahoo! Group where people I created where people can get
together and trade cards. If you want to join, just go to the URL below. More
information can be found there. Enjoy trading!

Type: Male Wolf
Sign: Scorpio
Clothes: Checkered Shirt

Contact Info

Do you have questions? Do you want to contribute information about a card that
I don't own yet? Do you want to know the meaning of life? Well, here's a quick
list of emails that I will NOT reply to:

-Emails asking for town tunes from the Town Tune Cards.
-Emails asking for codes from the Character Cards.
-Emails asking a question that was answered already in this FAQ.
-Emails that don't follow the guidelines in the next paragraph.

Don't fall into any of the above categories? Fantastic! If you want to reach
me, send an email my way. You MUST put the phrase "[AC]" at the beginning of
the subject line of your email to me. If you do not put [AC] at the beginning
of your email, it will be quickly and promptly deleted, even if it's a
contribution email. Speaking of contributions, if you want to send me the
info for a card I don't have, follow the format used in the checklist above.
If you don't send all of the information from the checklist, I can't do
anything with your contribution. Still with me? Great. Emails can be sent to:
