JINGLE TOPIC - Help inside

#1MysterMaskPosted 12/12/2008 6:39:22 PM
SO I decided to make this topic now, since there are only a few days left until the 24th, and then it will be too late for many people to have all the conditions to get the full jingle st and more.

One can make a lot of money on that night. I did about 600,000 bells.
So jingle is a reindeer dressed up like Santa who will be in your town on the 24th evening between 8.00 pm and 12.00 am. he might actually stay longer, but I could not check longer because of the town music on that night that can drive one mad after a listening to it for a while.

Locations (how to find him):

- He will be either outside in town, in ~ 5 different locations (usually in wooded areas, next to Nook's shop, outside your house, or next to the Taylor shop.
- He can also be INSIDE a neighbor house, but only in the ones where the neighbor is at that moment outside the house. So for that night only you will be able to actually enter a house when the neighbor is outside, and the light in the house is switched off (!)
Jingle will NOT be in any of the houses with the light on, he will NOT be in any of the little empty houses that you could choose at the beginning of the game to be yours, and he will NOT be inside your house even if you switch off the light.
- Jingle will circle between the above locations, and will remain in one spot for as long as you don't talk to him, and he did not give you a present. As soon as he gives you a present, he will change location, but only once you either enter a building, OR go to another distant area of the town. The location where he will appear is random, and he can re-appear at the same location over and over. I had him nine (!) times in a raw outside Nook's shop, which was very handy.

What happens:
- You talk to him and he will ask you two questions:
1. To choose between a) something to step on or b) something to lean on
2. To choose between a) your previous choice (whichever choice you made at the first question) and b) something huge
So you can answer: a), a); or a), b); or b), a), or b), b)
- Jingle will give you the following:
1. For choosing a) something to step on, + a) something to step on you get a Jingle carpet
2. For choosing b) something to lean on + a) something to lean on you get a Jingle wall\
3. For choosing a) something to step on + b) something huge OR b) something to lean on + b) something huge you get a piece of furniture.
It's true that for these last two options, something to step on + something huge will rather give you the table, bed, sofa, piano, and chair, while something to lean on + something huge will rather give you a wardrobe, dresser, clock ot lamp. However, the pieces of furniture are very random, you can get the same one over and over for both option. I got the wardrobe for replying both something to step on + something huge, and something to lean on + something huge. I actually got a LOT of wardrobes an on;y two lamps in over 60 items that I got from Jingle on that night... :(
Hence, the last point:

What you can do
You can start collecting hats, accessories, umbrellas, and flowers in order to change your appearance each time that you talk to Jingle.
Shirts and dresses DO NOT WORK!
You need to trick Jingle in believing that you are someone else.
You do NOT need to combine accessories. One piece of equipment is enough.
Ribbons of all colors can be use in succession. They count as different items.
Same with flowers. Each color of each type of flower (including hybrids) will give you a present if you wear them as either headgear or accessory.
It does not work if you combine two items that you already wore to get a present from Jingle.
You can also change your hair cut or face in the beauty salon in the city, but it's expensive and a pain in the ass to go to the city only for this. It's not worth it, unless you are desperate to get more items, and you have no more flowers or accessory.
Please think to order from Nook any hat or accessory that you might have in your catalogue. It's an excellent investment, considering that each has a return of 12,240 bells. Yup That's what you get by selling any furniture piece from Jingle, INCLUDING the carpet and the wall.

I hope that i covered everything, but if you have more questions I will try to answer.

Yes. Changing shirts will NOT help. Jingle will recognize you, and will not give you another present.
Only hats, accessories, umbrellas and flowers are useful.
But you will have to change the accessory each time.
besides, you have to find him again.
You cannot remain next to him after he gave you a present, and just change your headgear (for example).
You HAVE to enter a building, and look for him again.
That's why it takes a bloody lot of time, with searching all the dark houses over and over.
The loading times can drive you nuts.
