                                * Introduction -
    Gyl here! I've beem longing to write a guide for the Harvest Moon series but
    somehow couldn't find the time to do so. Now, after seeing that there's a
    handheld version of it I've quickly searched gaming shops for the titles
    luckily one came up and in the second hand parts then again it's better than
    nothing. It's a japanese version so pity I had to pool up all those little
    Jap language that I've learned and try to fit em' in. Luckily everything in
    the game seemed to be a lot like the N64 and PS version so I really don't
    see any problems. Anyway, I've decided to just come up with a FAQs that is
    composed mostly of the basics like profits, gift lists and of course the
    game basics for those who had the game in japanese version.
    After a long long time of slumber... (patiently waiting for the eng. Version
    like most of us...
    Who said that the guide is 'so-called-dead'? Okay, so I just got the english
    version so expect a lot of updates coming up which'll be a great news to all.
    BTW, forgive me for not answering mails some were automatically were sent
    into my trash/bulk mail. Since I tightened it up a bit coz' of floods of
    mails coming anyhow I'll be replying to your mails now, that is if I find
    a some time off. Anyway I can't point out what's new. Just check it out.
    BTW, I wasn't able to receive some contributions contributed long before
    i got the english version anyhow if you wouldn't mind sending em all again.
    PEACE! ^_^
    BTW, there's this new section. I've replaced the Item Bestiary Section for
    a while for a Random HM stuffs section where the contributor (you) can uh...
    take up some space off my guide and post a random HM stuff that isn't in my
    guide or that doesn't fall under any categories or simply the FAQ Author put
    it there out of laziness. hahahaha PEACE OUT :D
    Let's roll...

    I don't have a manual for the game or something so anything here written here
    is and surely is taken straight from my gaming experience. I'll be assuming
    that you have breifly understood the basic controls of Harvest Moon and has
    played even a little bit of the game.
    All throughout the game(even if you'll gona go to sleep) you'll find yourself
    always carrying that little backpack. Hit the A and B Button to quickly ummon
    the Backpack screen or choose it from the menu window. The pack allows you to
    carry tools and items. You can only carry a certain number of items and tools
    depending on the size. Holding an Item cancels the use of a tool. You can
    increase the number of tools you can store in your backpack by buying a etter
    To switch froom tools simply open the tool screen and either manually bring it
    to the activated tool or just press the A button twice. Don't worry time
    doesn't expire doing this.
    Picking Up items
    A basic skill that is very essential all through out the game. Simply face
    the item and press the A button to pick it up. This automatically makes the
    item on use or equipped so you should store them in your pack before you
    could throw them away. Equipping items gives you several choices:
    (1) Throw it
    Simply hit the A button to throw the equipped item away. This is rather
    frustrating if you're supposedly be shipping goods. Some items are not
    destructible in your farm. Meaning throwing them in the vicinity of the farm
    won't destroy them. Also, dropped goods are no longer available for selling
    or being picked up again.
    (2) Dumping Garbages
    This skill is related to cleaning up your farm. You could easily view this
    tutorial through the 'How' option on the menu screen. Here's the list of hose
    you cold find in your farm.
    Branch (A orange branch)
    Stone (A small stone)
    Weed (Green grass like plant)
    Lumber (A Vertical chopped log)
    Tools are needed to destroy them. Weeds for example could already be removed
    By simply pulling it out and throwing it away. Branches are destroyed by an
    Axe and it'll automatically add up to your number of lumbers. Lumber and
    Branches could easily be destroyed by throwing them at the green portion of
    your field or in your pond. Destroyed Lumbers and easily dealt much like
    stones, simply hitting them with a hammer destroyes them or could easily be
    thrown in your pond.
    (3) Gifts
    Items equipped could be handed as a gift. Simply go up to the certain person
    you wish to hand the item to and just talk to them like the usuall. You'll
    automatically hand it over to him/her. Some items that isn't available for
    selling is good for giving gifts.
    (4) Store in backpack
    Simply hitting the 'B' button automatically puts items on hold in your pack.
    This should always be done if you should be careful when shipping lots of
    Mining Basics
    In Mineral Town, there's a total of 2 mines. If you're a begineer you better
    just mine when you'll be needing an ore for upgrade if not it may take a lot
    of fatigue from you also certain items are adviseable to mine successfully.
    1st Mine - Cave near the Spring
    At the hot spring area there's a cave just near the Pond. It's pretty easy to
    spot and it's almost very open. It's not hard to spot as it's just standing
    Possible Ores are:
    kuzu(I don't know what it is either), Copper, Silver,
    Gold, Mythril, Orihalcon, Adamantite, Sage's Stone
    (Only after you've got all the Cursed Items), Goddess's
    Stone(9 in all)
    2nd Mine - The Mine across the lake
    This mine is and can be located and accessible near the mountain path and
    during Winter only. It could be seen on the map as well. During winter the
    lake would be frozen hard enough for people to walk on it. It's in the middle
    of the lake.
    Possible Ores are:
    kuzu, Moonstone, Sandrose, Emerald, Ruby, Topaz, Amethyst,
    Diamond, Pink diamond, and four other kinds of ores I couldn't
    translate properly. and Kappa's Stone(9 in all)
    ** you can get a Power Berry in 29th layer underground.
    ** one thing more to go, the coin bag you dug contains
       a random amount of money.
    (1) Why Mine?
    Mining is another way of providing yourself extra income. Specially during
    the winter season where your income should decrease by 1/10. Mining requires
    two distinct tools. A hammer and a hoe. The hoe is needed to go deeper or
    find a way to go down the mine for better ores as the hammer is used to
    destroy rocks and possibly acquire ores from it as well. Basically, If you
    mine you get easy bucks and in an unlimited ways. Also this is a requirement
    for you to upgrade certain tools or make certain items. Sometimes you'll find
    money (10G.) as you mine. If you'll mine you should be ready as having a
    basket and perhaps medicine for restoring fatigue would help a lot. At an
    early stage mining is not actually a good way to earn money as some forage-
    able items gives you a lot more money rather than mining.
    (2) Mining Tips
     + Upgraded tools has no effect on the mine so they still cover a block per
     + To go deeper smash/plow as much blocks as you can and find a hole. You could
       go deeper into the mine from there.
     + The hole changes position everytime you enter them though the odds are like
     + A better pack or a basket is a great idea to be earning big bucks from it.
     + Pull out of the mine if your face has turned blue.
     + Bring along a medicine if you'll be mining long and hard.
    (3) Ores are us!
    Here are the items you could find they're arranged already.
    Junk Ore          1G
    Money Bag         10G - instant money
    Copper Ore        15G
    Silver Ore        20G
    Gold Ore          25G
    Mystrile Ore      30G
    Orichalcum Ore    50G
    Adamantite Ore    50G
    Fishing Basics
    Fishing is another way of earning extra income though the process itself is
    tedious and frustrating at times luckily you won't be starting the game to
    fish ASAP. You'll be needing a fishing rod (Of Course!). You can acquire it
    on the beach. Fishing could be done on bodies of waters only excluding ponds,
    and hot springs. Simply equip the rod and cast them out. Wait for the rod to
    vibrate a little then pull it in. There are ways to easily pull out fishes
    just refer to the stuffs below.
    Fishes had a couple of purposes as they come in to the mineral town. Either
    sell them, give them as gifts, or cook them.
    (1) Why Fish?
    Fishing is fun. Is that not enough? Also, some people likes fish for present
    or simply they sell for a good price. They'll be ranging from 100 - 300G.
    according to their size. Fishing is a good way to burn time.
    (2) Fishing Tips
     + Throwing Trash(I think weeds/destoyable is one) around will decrease the
       chance of fishing out a fish,
     + A bin or a basket is where you should throw your trash.
     + There are fish in the hot spring. but you won't be able to catch it without
       Cursed Rod.
    (3) Fished Out?!
    Unused Can
    Fish Bone
    Small Fish     50G.
    Medium Fish    120G.
    Large Fish     200G.
    Shipping: The bin and beyond!
    The Shipping bin is the place where you sell your goods. Just throw them in
    and you'll notice it to budge a little. There are 3 shipping bins in total 1
    situated in your farm and the other 2 are inside the chicken coop and
    the barn. There are an advanced way of shipping and it mainly makes your
    shipping job easier specially when you've almost filled your farm with crops.
    (1) The beyond!
    Do you know that time doesn't expire when you're inside a house? The shipping
    bin is located at the top left of the farm map but what about those you've
    planted away from it? There's the barn and the coop as an answer. You
    could use the bins in them to ship produce as well. Just pick as much crops
    and just hop in their hood and ship it there. This avoids spending 10 to 30
    minutes of farming time by just shipping goods! This also helps if you're
    situated far from it.
    (2) Advance Shipping Equipment
    There are things that makes shipping easy as well. You've got the Horse's
    Saddle and a Basket.
    The Basket is perhaps the best tool you'll ever need. It could store 30 items
    in it and shipping them of just requires one shot. The basket is really
    expensive but with the help of constant farming you could avail of this early
    on. This'll cut your shipping time and focus more on harvesting. To use the
    basket simply treat it as a normal shipping bin. One's you've filled or ready
    to sell the things inside just pour it over the bin much like selling normal
    crops. Items thrown in the bin can never be retrieved. It's much like a
    blackhole >.< They could also be taken anywhere and be left there for you to
    come back the other day. Even storm or bad whether couldn't tore them apart!
    The horse's saddle is given when you've made your pony like you enough. The
    horse moves by itself and so using the horse as a bin should be just a
    second option since if you're not careful enough you can throw good money
    away as the horse suddenly move when you think he wouldn't.
    Taking Santa's place
    This is merely like Gift Giving and Making friends. Sure it's just a waste of
    good money but do you know that even if you befriend a normal villager
    they'll be of some use? Like if you befriend the old lady that lives near the
    Mayor he could give a recipe for you. Some of which could give you cool
    farming tips or give you hints on what to give a girl.
                                * Basic Farming Tools *
    At the beginning of the game you'll find a hammer, an Ax, a Hoe, a sickle and
    a watering can inside your tool box. You can equip any of the three or
    depending on your backpack. The status screen shows the level of your tools
    and the like learning them gives you an advantage on your farming techniques.
    The status screen should look like the one below:
                  - = Status Screen of Tools = -
                                ___________    Legend

                                               [M] Mystrile Ore
    The bar reoresents the experience bar. The color of it would change depending
    on the tool level. To see whether the tool is available for an upgrade check
    the ores available for it.
    The percentage reads this way.
    [Percentage]   [Tool/Color/Type]        [Cost for Upgrade+Req]
    001% to 099%   Default Tool                [N/A]
    100% to 199%   Copper Tool              1000G. + Copper Ore
    200% to 299%   Silver Tool              2000G. + Silver Ore
    300% to 399%   Gold Tool                3000G. + Gold Ore
    400%           Mystrile Tool            5000G. + Mystrile Ore
    It's possible to jump unto a certain tool right away. Like skipping Copper then
    quickly upgrading it for a silver tool. It's economical that way though you
    should plan before hand when to upgrade certain tools. Like a sickle's job is
    still quite easy with out any upgrades. Or a Hammer should be updgraded to at
    least copper to smash rocks. All you have to do is to accumulate as much
    experience by constantly using the tools. How? read the next section. Anyway,
    the tools or the cost doesn't build up. It's rather fixed.
    (1) How to upgrade?
    All you need is to obtain a certain ore that is required for upgrade, ample
    amount of money and the tool itself!. Check the Mine section for the ores and
    for the basics. Also, tools needed a certain amount of experience for upgrade.
    This is done by using them on proper places. Like hoe would be earning it's
    experience by tilling soil or Hammers by breaking rocks. There's an advance
    way of earning experience though only applicable to Ax and Hammer as they're
    designed for it. Hoe, Sickle and Watering Can should be earning their
    experience from constant work as the two said tools could earn theirs by
    simply  hitting Rocks or Large stones or stumps. At their level they won't be
    hurting it but they'll be gaining levels from it anyway.

                  Mystrile  Water 3 x 5 tilled soil
    To use their special function you should hold the B button and the hero would
    perform actions corresponding for each levels. The use of powerful tools
    doesn't take much energy now as they're more easy to use I presume.
    (3) Tools Breakdown
    The Ax is extremely important as it's the only way for you to get a lumber or
    to avail for an upgrade. The ax could clear tree stumps or branches. Upgraded
    Ax still needs to charge up before being able to use their function.
    Hammer is another essential tool when it comes to mining. It's used to break
    down rocks to earn ores and to destroy stones big and small to clear the farm.
    It also is used to destroy destroyed lumbers. Also has a function of removing
    or untilling tilled soil.
    Hoe is a very important farming tool as it's the only way for you to plant
    seeds. With an Upgraded Hoe it'll be easier for you to outline youe crops and
    see a better way of farming with it. Hoe is also used to mine so that makes
    it's functiontwice as important.
    Death's weapon, it's has a long sharp blade on the end and could swipe bodies
    as it is used. Oh! Anyway, the sickle is just used to cut grass or weeds or
    to lessen an animal's heart level. The sickle is an alternative of getting
    fodders for your animals.
    Watering Can is another very important tool. You'll find yourself using this
    tool 400% of the time! A better Watering Can means that you'll be cutting
    your farming time a bit. It's mainly use to water crops. Grass doesn't need
    them so you should not use them on them. It also needed to be filled with
    water first. Just take it near a body water or your pond to be exact and use it
                                  * Crops Guide *
    Crops are the most important thing that you need to learn when farming.
    They're the heart and sould of it. To plant crops, you have to buy one from
    the grocery store or the chinese looking peddlar. Seeds are packed into 9 and
    is used ones. You need to till block of soil to be able to plant them and
    watering them everyday is a must.
    (1)Using the land for your advantage
    Be sure that you've learned everything about the basic farmings as well as
    the tools needed. Strategically tilling soils depends on how much you would
    like to earn as well as the crops you're planting. The following patterns
    suggests the type of watering can you should be using to be able to maximize
    and utilize every single bit of everything.
    [:] - tilled soil where the seeds would go
    [X] - un-tilled soil/Blank space
    This pattern is designed for a normal watering can and a copper watering can.
    Since you won't be able to reach the very center part ones the seeds began
    sprouting giving it a blank space at the center or reconsider the following:
    [:][X][:]  [:][:][:] [:][:][:] [:][:][:]
    [:][:][:]  [:][:][X] [:][:][:] [X][:][:]
    [:][:][:]  [:][:][:] [:][X][:] [:][:][:]
    By following these or any of these patterns you'll be utilizing the space
    without leaving one part waiting. These patterns allows you to water every
    single one of your crops till you could get a silver watering can or a higher
    one. Since in a 9 tilled block you'll surely fail watering the center without
    a higher leveled watering can. To have a maximum harvest an 8 crop pattern is
    followed till you've already upgraded your can. I suggest going straight to
    Silver or any other higher watering can to not waste money at the same time
    max out the time.
    * - You can take on a 9 patterned block and just ask a harvest sprite to help
    you water/harvest it.
    However having a Silver or a higher watering can you can follow the 9 pattern
    block as seen here:
    This applies to plants that grows once though you could enlist the harvest
    sprites to help you get to the center anytime. To scattter those seeds just
    walk on the center of the '3x3' block and use it there.
    Planting seeds that is off season in your farm will kill it. Let say you've
    planted a turnip during another season or they're in a process of growing and
    the next season comes. They'll then automatically wither. Though I think
    planting summer-type seeds on the last day of spring then they'll live the next
    TIPS: After you have sold over 100 turnip, potato and cucumber for each, you
    will get Strawberry Seed It goes the same way in summer and autumn. You will
    receive new seeds if you've sown 100 each of the 3 basic seeds that could be
    purchased in stores.
    (2)Profit Formula
    The profit from crops is calculated under this formula:
    The crops profit margin is being calculated by this formula:
    A = Number of crops sown
    B = Selling price of sown crops
    C = Cost of the bag of seeds
    D = Number of days for the crop to grow
    E = Times a crop could be harvested
    F = Profit per bag of seeds
    G = Days before regrowing
    Profit per bag of seeds = (A x B) - C
    It is then calculated for the number of times it could be harvested or the
    amount of profit you could gain for the entire season under these formula for
    non-regrowing crops:
    Times a crop could be harvested = (30 days - D)
    Total profit earned = (F x E)
    For the regrowing plants here's the deal:
    Profite per bag of seeds per season [(A x B) E ] - C
    Times a crop could be harvested = [(30 days - D) / G]
    --- As Quoted from an email (Sorry I forgot your email add) ---
    I was reading your FAQ and it was good until I got to the calculations... I
    noticed that you said the number of times a crop will grow in a season is
    equal to 30 days subtract the amount of days to grow... This is  incorrect.
    The real formula should be:
    R = floor(30/D), for example R = floor(30/8) = floor(3.75) = 3 = R, you would
    be able to regrow the crop 3 times for a season.
    R: How many times the crop will grow in a season
    D: Days to grow
    This is of course assuming that you are able to buy the crop on the same day
    it was grown as well as growing the crop on the first day, of course the
    formula will be different if the crop is renewable...
    That formula would like this:
    R = floor([30-O]/D) + 1, for example R = floor([30-10]/8) + 1 = floor(20/8)
     + 1 = floor(2.5) + 1 = 2 + 1 = 3.
    O: Original amount of time to grow at first before it regrows.
    The same rules will of course apply to this as were mentioned above.

    I hope this can help you out, sincerely Matt Shelley.

                             * Frequently Asked Questions -
    1. Hi! I'm from <insert-name-of-website-owned> and could I feature this
       <insert-praise-here> in my site?
    A: 85% of the time I do allow people to get this guide on their site just for
       the reward of being honest and they've asked! I careless about the
       resentation or the looks/prestige/whatever your site is all about. Just
       ask and I'll see what we could do!
    2. How come my computation differs from you?
    A: Send me your formula or calculation to attain it and tell me what I did
       wrong. I do accept criticism and anything that may help this guide look or
       be the best.
    3. How come <insert-something> is different from mine?
    A: Perhaps I had typed it wrong or something. Just tell me about it and I'll
       credit you for it.
    4. How come you don't answer back with your e-mails?
    A: I would usually try to finish answering/replying from mails everyday and
       since I've been getting 10 to 30 mails a week and coming from different
       games I suggest you label your mails with the game title so I could get
       back to you ASAP. I usually put new games as my priority.
    5. If I contributed something what would I get?
    A: You'll recieve a thick paper back book about my life... kiddin' Seriously,
       you'll recieve a 110% credit for it and even have your name/e-mail add
       under the credit list.
    6. I had a japanese version of the game. I wonder how do I buy/upgrade my
    A: I've recieved a mail or two every now and then about certain topics.
       Basically you have to speak to the certain people in front of either their
       counter/table and they'll give you a selection. Talking to them simply
       brings up a conversation.
    7. What are the golden logs bought at the Carpenter's good for?
    A: While it's used as fence, it won't decay as those wooden ones usually will
       after some time. But your luxurious behavior will make the townsfolk
       annoyed! Just make it your collection.
    8: How do I get golden produce?
    A: Just make their affection level high enough(8 hearts at least) and if your
       animal is the Champion(it will have a crown on its head), it will produce G
       qualified products. BTW, if you keep those "G" animals out in the farm for
       30 days, they will produce P products.
    9: I need help, I have been giving Ann gifts all year up to Summer 17 and so
       far no change in the heart, can you help me out here?
    A: Perhaps you've been giving her something she don't like. To score big on
       Ann or on any girls you should give them presents that'll make their on-
       screen avatar blush and notice their answers to be a bit affectionate
       (erm... with an exception of one girl ^_^)

    From: ELF <pooka@elfhame.net>
    New recipes I've found (I suspect that they, like the birthdays, are mostly
    the same as in the PS version, but these are new[I think]. I'm only halfway
    through fall year one, so I have the kitchen and a couple of the utensils,
    but hardly any ingredients, so I haven't started cooking.) +'s indicate
    optional items. It's also interesting to note that what you put in a recipe
    DOES affect its recuperative abilities, including seasonings ^_^
    From Gotz: Savory Pancakes-Flour, Egg, Cabbage, Frying Pan, Knife, Oil
    From TV: Toast- Bread, Oven From Chef: Baked Sweet Potato-Sweet potato,
             egg, butter, sugar, pot, oven (he says this is a favorite at the
             spring tea party, so maybe it'd be a good gift then?)
    Moon Dumplings: Muffin Mix, Sugar
    Likes/Dislikes (there are some great FAQs for the PS game that are pretty
    much accurate. I'm only going to list things I've found that are different
    from that version) One overall thing is the pretty much everybody seems to
    at least like flowers, including the men.
    Karen: likes all flowers (she was neutral to all but pink cat), hates
           chocolate, dislikes apples
    Stu: likes flowers
    Barley: dislikes herbs (at least yellow and green)
    Jeff: is neutral to flowers
    Cliff: hates flour
    H. Goddess: loves flowers and eggs, is neutral to spa-boiled eggs and
                sweet potatos
    Sasha: seems to hate all plants, especially flowers
    Shop Hours: Yodel Farm: 10-3, closed Monday
    Chicken Farm 11-4, closed Sunday
    Lumberyard: 11-4, closed Saturday
    Gifts to the Harvest Goddess (I haven't kept an exact count, so these are only
    20ish: Power Berry
    50ish: Claims she makes a girl like you more (hard to verify) BUT if you tell
    her you like her, she'll like you more and will give you relaxation tea leaves.
    Shopping Channel Kitchen $10000 Oven $2500 (? I forgot to check T_T)
    Sellables(just thing I didn't notice in your list ^_^)
    Spa-boiled Egg: 80
    Gold Egg: 150
    Ruby: 78 one of those apples Won is always trying to sell...HMSGB.
    I don't know if it sells for more than you pay for it, but it is counted in
    the Memos list as an individual sellable, so maybe there's something special
    about it?)
    Fishing Rod: I got this in late summer, so I think you can get it year round,
    but you have to be friends with Zack first (or at least acquaintances)
    Stone of Truth: I've only found one so far T_T It was upstairs in the library
    in the SE bookshelf

    Man Ling Li Zhang <finalianx@sbcglobal.net>
    Um.. as we all know that the sprites like items of their color, we give
    Simple things like the grass on the beach, or flowers. Honey is the best item
    that all the sprites like, especially yellow. You give him like 5 of these,
    he'd probably have 4 hearts. And when they work more, they get better. And if
    they have more hearts towards you, they tend to build up their working speed
    a lot faster. Like if one sprite has only 1 heart towards you, he learns very
    slow. The ones with a lot of hearts learn very fast. So give them a lot of
    items first, the tell them to work. That way, they build up their skills much
    faster. Here's something really strange... Sprites are willing to work the
    animals, but when I pick up a chicken and talk to them, they get scared. They
    are really scared of animals, even your dog.
    When you work them too much, and never talk to some, they talk very funny.
    They are afraid that you will make their houses dirty. And when they like you
    a lot, they say they know when you are going to arrive. When the sprites do
    the animal in the barn, you can see that he walks everywhere, on the wall,
    over the cow, on the feeding boxes. And when outside, they walk over ponds,
    through fences and houses. You can see that their movements are totally
    random, and don't have limits for where they cannot go, like us, the
    character. What's also funny is that when it, for example, milk the cow, it
    just spray magic. And the milk will automatically teleport from inside the
    cow to the shipping bin. Isn't it amazing?

    here is what I know:
    Throw Cucumbers in pond where 2nd mine is open,during winter,to meet some
    green guy and get something. Of course,the Goddess in the Waterfall.
    You should through Cucumbers in the lake EXCEPT IN WINTER! For in winter, the
    lake is frozen! And you should through it continually for 10 days, that is at
    least 1 cucumber each day(He won't thank you for extra). You will get a Blue
    Power Berry(Mysterious Berry) which cuts your stamina loss by half.
