    Harvest Moon: Sprite Station
    A Translation Guide and FAQ by Myah/Koji
    Version .30
    This guide is a work in progress. If you are willing to donate any information
    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 ^_^))

    shopping), finished the casino section, started the sprite work section.
    .05 Initial "public" release. Most sections incomplete
    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
    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
    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 ^_^
    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
    5. In town: Mite Mite Inn, bar, and 3 houses						4
    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 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.

    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

    みずやりテーム			Watering Team		Light Blue	Waters your Crops
    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
    Click convert money to medals brings up a new menu. Every 10G = 1 Medal.

    I'm writing all of the winning hands in english since all the katakana are for
    english words.
    Royal Flush					500X
    5 Card (5 of a kind)				250X
    Straight Flush					100X
    4 Card (4 of a kind)				50X
    Full House					25X
    Flush						10X
    Straight 					8X
    3 Card (3 of a kind)				4X
    2 Pair						3X
    1 Pair						1X
    They point of poker is for your hand to match one of those listed above.
    After placing a bet you select which cards you want to get rid of and then click
    option. If you don't want to flip any cards, leave and hit the above option
    After winning a hand you will get the following options
    ダブルアップに**→Double or nothing
    ポーカーで**→Play Poker
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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.
