Animal Crossing New Leaf Unable to Save Data and Not Identifying Update

Issue:
Basically, I wanted to play AC:NL and with that, downloaded the update. But, as soon as i planted the tree in the town hall, it appeared that it was “unable to save data” and later appeared that “in order to play, i needed to download the lastest update in Nintendo eShop”. How do I Fix that?

Here’s some issues I found with your log that might help.

Take a screenshot of the title screen. So we can verify your game version.

GPU Driver Version: Build 10.18.14.4264

This driver is outdated, you need to update.

Download win64_15.36.38.5117.zip from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/29312/Intel-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-7-8-1-15-36-?product=81016
direct link: https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29312/a08/win64_15.36.38.5117.zip

then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/

Since you have an old GPU you might need to turn off Disk Shader Cache and Accurate Multiplication.

I updated the drivers, thank you for the help!
In the meantime, I downloaded a version which has the Welcome Amiibo Pre-Installed, but either way, it’s still unable to save data!!


same error:

i’ll send the log again, with the screenshot of citra.

I hope you are not implying downloading illegitimately (pirating). Follow the guides below to dump the game and the update properly:



You want it to look like in your list:

And in-game:

Note the Ver. 1.5 in the top right corner on the bottom screen.
