on this list that is not already on the guide
Or you think there is something important I need to add, please send your Q&C to
the e-mail above.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A foreword: This is the first time I have written either a FAQ or a translation
guide. My japanese is definitely not that greatest. But I know many people were
looking for some serious help in playing this on Cher's forums so I have decided
to write up this guide. This guide will assume you have played a harvest moon
before and you know the basics behind the farming system (that is plowing,
planting, watering, and harvesting)

To view this faq correctly, you will need japanese language support installed on
your computer. You can still use this guide without it, but you may not be able
to find the menus as easily. For instructions on how to add japanese language
support to your PC http://www.nihongo-ok.com/ (scroll down the page until you
see "Gon method", then follow the instructions. (thanks Cher ^_^))

------------------------------------------

Section 000C1: How to use this Guide

This guide is not supposed to be a full fledged FAQ. I'm not going to tell you
how to play and every little detail of the game. Instead, this FAQ is mainly for
translating most of the options as well as the important item names so people
who don't know japanese can successfully import and play this game.

To use this guide, return to the index at the top of the page. You simply have
to search for the code connected to each section. For example the sprite tree is
listed as item 00005. Simply click "edit -> find" in your web browser or text
editing program and type 00005 in the search and it should bring you to the
"Sprite Tree" section.

------------------------------------------

Section 000D1: Japanese Basics

Here I will go over some basic words that you will encounter throughout
the game.
------------
     はる - Spring
     なつ - Summer
     あき - Autumn
     ふゆ - Winter
     日   - Sunday
     月   - Monday
     火   - Tuesday
     水   - Wednesday
     木   - Thursday
     金   - Friday
     土   - Saturday
     はい - Yes
     いいえ - No

(thanks to Eponick)

------------------------------------------

Section 000E1: Regular controls.


D-pad - used to move jack and the cursor on screen

Start - paused the game
Select - N/A

A - Used to pick up and drop items and confirm menu options
B - Pressing and holding this button causes your character to run. Also cancels
menu options
Y - Uses the tool currently equipped
X - Eats whatever is currently in the players hands if it is edible.
L - Used to whistle
R - Used in the following conjunctions
	R+A - switches the item you are holding
	R+B - switches through your tools
	R+Y - switches through your tools in reverse order
	R+X - switches your equipped special item

------------------------------------------

Section 000F1: Touch Screen Controls

The touchscreen is a mixed blessing. It makes moving items around easier, but it
also adds to a lot of frustration as you must use a stylus. The points are too
small to try using your fingers or any other object and this can slow down the
game (especially since you can't pause while you are messing in the menu)

In the menu the touch screen is used to select objects and to equip/unequip
items.

In "touch" mode the stylus is used to "pet" your animals and raise their hearts

------------------------------------------

Section 000G1: The new game

When you start a new game the harvest goddess will greet you and ask you
following questions in this order.

Your Name
Your birthdate
Your farm's name
Your Dog's name
and finally your Cat's name

For all the questions that require the entering of a name you can choose from
Hiragana (top option on the left side) katakana (2nd option from the top)
roomaji (or english letters. It's the third option from the top). After you are
done typing in your name click "end" (final option). You will then be asked to
confirm your action. The top option is Yes (はい) while the bottom option is no
(いいえ).

For your birthday you may choose from one of 4 seasons. Spring (春) Summer(夏)
Fall(秋) and winter(冬) and then any day of that month.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 00002: Understanding the menu


Section 000A2: Save menu

The save menu is a very straight forward page. There are 4 bits of text.

セーブ (save) ロード(load)

その1(save1) その2(save2)

To save a game click on セーブ then click on either その1 or その2 depending on
which save slot you want to use

It will then come up with a confirmation. If you want to save move the cursor to
はい (yes) and hit A. If you changed your mind put the cursor on いいえ (no) and
click A.

To load, you just click load and then which slot you wish to load.

------------------------------------------

Section 000B2: Rucksack

The ruck sack menu is partitioned off into 2 sides. The smaller left side shows
your 3 equip slots.

Red is for tools
Green is for items you pick up
Blue is for special items.

On the right is everything in your inventory. You start off with only 1 page,
but you can buy 2 additional pages via Kaarii's shop (see section 000C4) To
equip an item manually you can either drag it from it's slot to the correct
equip slot, or you can click on it once then click on the spot you want it to go.

To seperate a single item from a bunch of items, double tap (may take several
attempts) it.

To switch rucksack pages after you've bought them, click the up or down arrows
on the right side of the menu.

------------------------------------------

Section 000C2: The Map

Forgive me, I'm not good at making ASCII maps so for the time being I'm going to
have to just use a JPEG ^_^
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v336/Koji2009/SS.jpg

1. Mansion and Witch Hutt								0 fields
2. Your farm 										1 field
3. Goddess Pond and Sprite Station							1 field
4. Water Fall and Kaain's dig site/Mine							2
fields
5. In town: Mite Mite Inn, bar, and 3 houses						4
fields
6. Bess' Farm										0 fields
7. Town outskirts. Pyrotechnicians house, artists house, scientists house,
hippies house4 fields
8. Old Man's house.									1 field
9. Beach and Ain's restaurant in summer.						0 fields

The map in SS is much more useful then the maps of previous games. Besides
seeing where you are, you can see where everyone is in an area. Simply click on
an area of map to zoom in. You can see who's there and what they are doing in
real time.

------------------------------------------

Section 000D2: Statistics

This page keeps track of everything you've done in the game. How many animals
you have, their heart levels, how much money you have, etc. From top to bottom
are as follows

current money
your character
your dog					your cat
your horse
how many poultry you have			poultry feed
live stock					livestock feed
sprites found					Sprite leaders found
books found					wood peices in storage
buildings currently built			gold logs in storage
fish caught					trading cards
how many items you've dug up

Click on each one to get a more detailed report. For space sake I am only
writing up on the more "important" statistics. I'll try and add the others at a
later time.

------------------------------------------

Section 001D2: Money

Clicking on the picture of money on the left side brings up the money statistics.
There are 3 pages

Top page: This gives details analysis of your earnings and spendings in the
current season as well as your total season earnings and expenditures

Middle Page: Let's you see the total gain and loss in every season.

Final page: This shows the days you earned the most money in a single day, the
most you spend in a single day, your most profitable season, and the season you
spent the most money in.

------------------------------------------

Section 002D2: Character

Clicking the picture of your character brings up your characters status. This
shows the current level of experience on each tool as well as how many Casino
Medals you currently have.

Section 003D2: Animals

Here you click on the animal that you want to see the health/friendship status
off. Your Dog, Cat, and Horse can never get sick so clicking on their pictures
merely brings up their love meter.

Chicken, ducks, cows, and sheep all can get sick. Clicking on their picture
brings up the option to click on a specific animal and see their hearts and
their health.

------------------------------------------

Section 004D2: Shipping List

The shipping list shows how many and of what kinds of things you have put in
your shipping bin. You access it by clicking the crate with apples in it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 00003: The TV

Unlike the Television of Friends of Mineral Town, in Korobokkuru Station the TV
is with you at all times. Unless previous iterations, there are 9 channels
instead of the measly 4

Channel 1 Weather: Shows the weather for the next day
Channel 2 Television Shopping: Shows items you can buy over the phone.
Channel 3 Sprite info: Gives information on harvest sprites
Channel 4 Animal Information:
Channel 5 Music: Change the music to any records you have bought.
Channel 6 NEWS: Discusses upcoming events in Forget Me Not Valley
Channel 7 Mystery: Showing the highest quality entertainment programs!
Channel 8 Help channel: Information to help you out on your farm.
Channel 9 Quiz: No one has yet unlocked this channel...

------------------------------------------

Section 000A3: Home Television and DVDs

Although you do not start with a TV for your house, you can purchase one from
Van the merchant as well as a DVD player and DVDs to play on it. It doesn't get
the sprite station channels. You can purchase the DVDs from various shows that
were on FoMT. Details on the price listed in Van's Shop.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Section 00004: The telephone

The most important shopping tool in the game is the telephone. 99% of your
shopping will be done through it. Many of you will be reading this section of
the faq just for the menu translations... I heavily suggest that you have
japanese language support installed so you can actually see what the menus look
like in japanese. Sometimes they do change position as new things are
added/removed. You have been warned.

cheaper. If you do not have the material you can choose to build without the
supplies in which case you are charged extra for the supplies to build the
building.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 00005: The Sprite Tree

The tree is seperated into 2 sections. The first and main section is where you
get your slaves... err... sprite friends to help you out with chores.  The back
section contains the Casino where you go to gamble away your money and earn
fabulous prizes (like the teleport necklace)

------------------------------------------

Section 000A5: Hiring Sprites

Go to the main desk as you enter and the sprite behind the counter will ask if
you want the sprites to help you. Certain sprites specialize in certain tasks.
The more sprites you have of one type and the more they like you, the better and
faster they'll work. There are 7 teams you can hire

To give individual sprites a gift you either have to give them the gift while
they are out in the fields working for you, or you can go up to the dolls on the
counter and try giving the gift. A menu will appear with all the names of the
different sprites. Choose the sprite by their name and how much of the gift you
want to give them.

You can only hire 1 group of sprites to work in 1 area at a time and the most
sprite groups you can have working at once is limited to 2. To hire a sprite
group go talk to the sprite at the front counter in the Sprite Tree.

To hire a sprite go up to the counter and talk to the sprite called Gattsu (ガ
ッツ). A list of sprite teams will appear. Their name and functions below

Japanese name			English name	Color		Task
		Cost (per day)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------
どうぶつテーム	えさ		Animal Team-feeding	Red		Feeds animals
			50Medals
しざい*めテーム		Clearing Team		Orange		Clear
rocks/tree branches		10Medals
どうぶつテーム ブラシ		Animal Team-Brushing	Yellow		Brushes
your animals			50Medals
しゅうかくテーム			Harvesting Team		Green		Collects all
shippable items		50Medals
かいふくテーム			Recovery Team		Purple		Recovers your
stamina and fatigue	50Medals
つりテーム			Fishing Team		Dark Blue	Fishing sprites
			20Medals
みずやりテーム			Watering Team		Light Blue	Waters your Crops
		50Medals

After you pick the sprite team a map will appear to tell you where you want your
sprites to work. Certain sprite groups (like the animal teams) can only work on
your farm and therefore don't bring up a map. Select all the area(s) you want
them to work then press the little button near the bottom of the screen.

Then, after you have selected the location you'll be asked how many days you
want the sprites to work (1, 3, or 7) and it shows the total cost on the right
hand side. The 4th option (もどる) let's you go back and change any options and
the 5th option (**をやめる) is to cancel.

------------------------------------------

Section 000B5: Sprite Casino

After you have unlocked the Casino by finding a dealer sprite (see sprite
section for the details) enter it via the back room. In here you should find 4
sprites each behind a different table. The purple sprite in the square desk on
the far right converts G into medals and also converts medals into prizes.

お金をメダルにえる→ Convert money to medals
メダルをアイテムと**する→ Convert medals to items
やめる→Cancel

Click convert money to medals brings up a new menu. Every 10G = 1 Medal.

Click convert medals to items and you get a lot of items you can trade your
medals in


キャベツの種→Cabbage seeds (plant in spring)			500Medals
パイナップルの種→Pineapple seeds (plant in summer)		1000Medals

The sprite directly north of the purple sprite is the Red Poker sprite.

ポーカーの**→Learn to play poker

ポーカーで**→Play Poker
やめる→Cancel

Double or nothing takes you to a game of high and low where each time you win
you double your score. Details below.

Tips for winning: If you don't know much about poker, then just be sure to flip
any card you see that isn't sparkling. Doesn't matter if that means you have to
reflip all 5 of them at least it's better then nothing. If you DO know how to
play poker well, look for flushes. They are pretty easy to get and multiply your
bet by 10 if you have nothing else to go on.

---

The middle black sprite wants you to play a game of blackjack. The options are
similar to the red sprite.

ブラックジャックで**→Play Black Jack
ブラックジャックの**→Learn to play Black Jack
やめる→Cancel

Multipliers are different depending on how you win.

6 Cards						50X
Three 7's					30X
5 Cards						10X
BlackJack					3X

After you have placed your bet your cards will appear. The object is to try and
get as close to 21 in cards without going over while beating your opponents hand.
The left option is "hit me" which adds another card. The right option is "stay"

After winning a hand you will get the following options

ダブルアップに**→Double or nothing
ブラックジャックで**→Play Black Jack
やめる→Cancel

Details on the double or nothing option below.

Tips for winning: Know your limits. Your just trying to beat the dealer, you
can't always get the best hands. Don't be afraid to just stand. You have a
better chance of winning with a small hand then if you go bust.

---

The final sprite on the far right in blue is a matching game sprite. The option
layout is the same as before.

The goal of the game is to match 4 card pairs up before your opponent. If you do,
your bet is multiplied by 4.

Same double or nothing options after you win

Tips for winning: Pay attention to your opponents move. If you have a problem
remembering a lot of card placement, try to just remember 1 or 2 different cards.
When you find the matching card you should easily be able to remember where the
first one was. Then just repeat the process till you win.

---

The Double up games are very straight forward. There are two kinds...

ハイアンドロウに**→High and low
ハイセレクトに**→High select

In high and low, a card is flipped over and you have to guess if the next card
is greater then, less then, or equal to. If greater then, choose the first
option, if less then, the second option, and if equal the third.

Tips for winning: Always play the odds in your favor.If the card is a 6 or lower,
always place your bet on High. If it's 8 or higher, place your bet on low. If
it's a 7 you just have to take a guess.

In high select, a card is flipped over and your job is to pick one of the 4
cards that is higher or equal to that card. The only other option is "cancel" in
the circle which forfeits your play.

Tips for winning: Don't bother with this one. You are far less likely to succeed
on larger numbers and you still only double your winnings.

Section 00006: Other

Section 000A6: How the love system works.

(taken from a forum post)

First thing is to go to the gambling hall and win or buy 5000 medals (buying
will cost 50,000. I spent 500G worth on medals and won the rest) and purchase
yourself the ring near the bottom with hearts on it. When you have this equipped
and you talk to someone you will see 2 numbers.

Aijou (love) and Yuukou (friendship). You will only see an Aijou value if you
are talking to an elligible female.

From what I've learned with this ring, I shall impart onto you the ways to get a
woman's heart up. The most important thing you need to know is that you've
almost assuredly have been littering. The ONLY place in the whole game where it
is safe to litter is on your farm... NOT all the plots of land around town that
you can farm in. If you have picked up and thrown a weed, you have lost 200-500
Aijou. Each and every time you throw a weed, rock, or tree branch anywhere
that's not your farm you lose tp to 500 Aijou.

From what I can tell so far, women gain 1 heart level ever 10,000 Aijou... so
when every weed drops you 500 Aijou, you can see how it'll quickly add up. To
solve this problem DO NOT THROW WEEDS. Either cut them with your scythe, or put
them in your ruck sack. You can then dump the weeds safely on your farm or into
your shipping bin.

Now that you have got the most important step done, you probably don't even need
to read this next part... use the Heart ring to determine what gift gives the
most Aijou. 500 being the most Aijuu you can get from any 1 single item.

Other things to know about Aijou is that every day or so (I haven't figured it
out exactly yet) You automatically get 200 Aijou if you talk to the girl every
day but only the first time you talk to her that day and only every other day (I
think)

Extra gifts after the first one do not count towards love points. They do count
towards the Yuukou points. Yuukou points are the only thing you can get with
normal people, and 100 of these usually unlocks that characters special. Daryl
for instance unlocks his basement at 100 Yuukou. After the first gift that day,
every gift after is worth only 1/3rd the Yuukou.

Heart levels (in aijuu ^_^):
0-9900			Black Heart
10000-19900		Purple Heart
20000-29900		Blue Heart
30000-39900		Green Heart
40000-49900		Yellow Heart
50000-59900		Orange Heart
60000+			Red Heart

Section 000D6: Glitches

Section 001D6: Non-harmful glitches

These can occur fairly often but don't really have any effect on the game, or
the effect is minimal and easily avoided.

1. Often you will see random shadows on the ground with no one above them. This
happens most in festivals

2. You can throw your animals on top of your fences

3. The ball the mayor gives you randomly disappears

4. Occationally the orange harvest sprites (and possibly others) will refuse to
do what they are supposd to do.

------------------------------------------

Section 002D6: Helpful Glitches

Rare but can be very useful if you can find out how to take advantage of them.

1. On rare occations the gathering sprites will cause a glitch that makes you
instantly have 1 billion G.

------------------------------------------

Sectino 003D6: Harmful Glitches

These nasty little buggers are more common then they should be. It seems that
Marvelous Interactive somewhat rushed the game out and their deadly legacy of
this are these game altering bugs.

1.Not being able to leave your house: These seem to occur most in spring and
winter. I've yet to confirm this glitch, but if you do experience it the only
solution is to either go back to bed, or load up a save from the day before and
try again.

2. Locking basement: This has occured numerous times for me and other people.
When you can build a basement, only make 1. 2 or more causes many lock ups to
occur that you can't get around. Hopefully this will be fixed when it's released
in europe and the states.

Section 00007: FAQ

Section 000A7: Farming

Q: Can I grow crops outside of my farm?
A: Yes, there are many small places in town to plant crops. See the picture in
section 000C2

Q: I have a giant crop! How did that happen?
A: It seems to be random. Sometimes you'll grow out and see one of your crops is
4 tims it's normal size.

Q: How do I grow mushrooms?
A: You need a mushroom house. Once you have one built, you need to place logs on
the stands and put mushroom seeds on them. Make sure to water them every day.
You can purchase the mushroom seeds from Bess and you can only purchase them
after your mushroom house is built.

Q: How do I pet my animals?
A: You need to purchase a Touch Panel Glove from Arisa's poultry farm. Simply
equip it and pick up the animal and the touch mini game starts

Q: How do you buy ducks?
A: You first have to purchase a pond.

Q: Why do my animals get sick?
A: You could be leaving them out in the rain, or forgetting to feed them if they
are in the barn or coop.


Q: How do you get the horse?
A: Take care of your current animals and Takakura should bring him sometime
fully grown in summer or fall of the first year.

Q. How do you get the Fishing Rod?
A. Befriend the old man and woman that live south of Bess' farm. After you have
them at 100 Yuukou each, go into their house on a Saturday between 12pm and 2pm.
You should get a scene where they give you the fishing rod. You may need to try
more then once.

------------------------------------------

Section 000B7: Girls

Q: How many marriable girls are there and what are their names and relation to
other harvest moon games?
A: 14. There are the Harvest Witch, Harvest Goddess, Mermaid (Retesu), Princess
(Kirara), Aafi (Ann), Arisa (Popuri), Erisu (Elli), Kaarii (Karen), Reona
(Lumina), Marivia (Mary), Serena (Celia), Nasuka (Nami), Furen (Flora), Muu
(Muffy),

Q: What does XXXX girl like?
A: Why don't you try some things yourself? Most girls like the flowers or the
jewelry from the dig site. This is mainly just a translation FAQ so people who
import the game can play if they don't know japanese.

Q: Where/when does XXXX girl's heart event take place
A: Again, you're going to have to try and figure these out on your own. I just
don't have enough time to go hunting for every single event ^_^ Sorry.

Q: What are Aijuu (love) points and Yuukou (friendship) points and how do they
relate to hearts?
A: Yuukou is simply how much a character likes you as a friend. This number is
mainly important to villagers. Anyone with a 100+ Yuujou is considered a friend
and you may unlock any special events or gifts that have to do with them. Aijuu
are all about how much a girl is attracted to you and ONLY appear on elligible
females. Every 10,000 Aijuu her heart level will raise 1 color.

Q: How do I get a blue feather?
A: Get the girl to orange heart or higher. Kaarii will then sell it at her store
for 1000G.

Q: How do I marry a girl?
A: You'll need her at a red heart, have seen all of her heart events, upgrade
your house, and get a big bed. Then propose to her with the blue feather and
hope for the best ^_^

Q: Why does my girl's Aijuu and Yuukou keep dropping?
A: Are you littering? Something that everyone got used to doing in FoMT is to
pick up weeds and throw them. This is fine if you are on your farm, but all the
little plots of land in town are NOT safe to throw things. It's considered
littering and everyone in town will grow to dislike you for it. You can lose as
many as 500 Aijuu from littering (usually more in the 2-300 range) per item.
Make sure you either cut the grass with the scythe, or put it in your ruck sack
and dump it into your shipping bin later.

------------------------------------------

Section 000C7: Harvest Sprites

Q. How do I find XXXX Sprite?
A. I've made a short list of important sprites that I've found and how to get
them. I'm not sure on the specifics on how I get the rest.

Q. How do I use the recovery team?
A. Hire them for a specific plot of land. When you've used up all your strength
and part of your fatigue talk to the sprites and they will heal you some. I can
only imagine they heal you for more as their level increases.
