Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town
Heart Events FAQ
Version 0.98E
By AstrayGundam(AKA Blue)
Email: Now people have been emailing me about stuff related to Heart Events
which is okay.  However twice that many have emailed me about other things which
my email is not for.  In your subject place the Heart subject(Example, Karen's 
Heart event for Rick etc.) and I'll answer it as best as I can.  If your email
is not about a heart event I will delete it.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  
Also in regards with edits to my faqs I can only give you a range, an idea of 
where it can happen, if you find an alternative, that's good for you too.  If 
you send an email regarding an edit then I will delete that too.  

Remember email me only if you are desperate and the situation is in regards to
Heart events otherwise I will block/delete your email.  

********************

Ok I was hoping it would not resort to this but people are still asking me 
questions like how to get more money and how much things cost and how to get
a girl.  First off, this is a Heart's FAQ I put time into making this faq to 
help people get an idea of what to do.  Yet people apparently don't read the 
faqs at all and ask me, I'm sorry but really foolish questions that has nothing 
to do with my faqs and it's insulting.  Even better yet people still try to get 
a hold of me over MSN which I keep as a private line.  

This site is good for this game, it answers everything, this site was 
completed to its full extent after I had posted this faq as I got a hold of 
the game early.

Thank you.  NOTE:  There maybe mistakes in my guide and I've tried my best to 
fix this yet they still keep popping up.

2. A little intro
	Yeah, this is the first Harvest Moon game I ever played and I got 
	hooked onto it easily.  One day I came across it and I thought it would 
	be another RPG action like Final Fantasy or something, then I realized 
	that it was a farm game, but hey, I liked it.  Violence doesn't make 
	games great all the time, well they do but sometimes story and others 
	make up	for it.  
	Right now I've Final Exams right now so I'll post what I know at
	the moment, especially with Karen since I've married her so yeah…and
	Elli's doctor's and Cliff's events too since I've seen them the most.
	For some reason, I never could trigger Kai's or Grey's events, I'm
	playing the game all over again so I can check it out.  Expect updates
	maybe in late December when I'm done.
	Updated:  Looks like I was able to finish it late november yay.
	
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
3. Marriage requirements and Rival's too
	Well, you need to buy everything that the TV shopping gives every
	Saturday, if you don't know how to do it, hit A on the TV screen on
	Sunday, click LEFT to see the channel and price, if you can afford it, 
	go and buy it.  

	You must buy everything, yes, everything including the
	kitchen sink and I'm serious!  If you can't buy or forgot to buy an 
	item, it'll come back later on, the bed won't come on sale until you 
	buy everything.  Once you buy a Big Bed for 10,000 gold, you're a step 
	closer to courting your lady.  

	First off though, you need to give presents to your ladies, find out 
	what they like the most, which I'll go over in the Heart Events.  
	You must give ONE present, it also helps if you give them the present 
	WRAPPED, which you can go to the superstore and buy.  
	
	Second, you MUST attend ALL four Heart Events, each girl has four heart 
	events,	you must see all of them as they boost their heart rates to high
	levels and closer to red hearts.  Third, you must upgrade your house 
	twice with Gotz, who lives southeast of your farm.  

	Fourth, when her heart is at the orange level, you'll receive a letter 
	in your mailbox telling you that the Blue Feather is on sale now.  
	You mUST need that Blue Feather to propose,equip it as a tool, go up to 
	the girl when her heart is red, and press B to show it to her, if she 
	accepts, she'll go to your house, then in 7 days, you'll get married.
	Reminder, YOU MUST give her ONE present a day if you want to ensure that
	she'll say yes to your first proposal.  If she refuses, make sure that
	you saw all heart events, got the big bed, upgraded your house twice,
	and is in second year at least.  Apparently, it seems it has to
	be second year, a guy said he did it in first year but that was like
	Winter 27, so around there.

	Note:  Usually, I suggest that if you do get a girl's heart to red,
	I think in my opinion it's more effective to wait a week or more before
	proposing to her even if you already got everything because sometimes
	they don't accept right away.  Though I had Karen's heart red at around
	Summer and didn't married her until the 2nd year but that was because
	I didn't get the bed until that time and she accepted right after that.

Rivals - Rivals too, must obtain four heart events with the ladies, they have
their own, if you meet them at the time when the event starts, you'll trigger 
it and the ladies heart goes up to the next level for that guy.  Once you've 
seen all four heart events, it's only 7 days until they get married.  However, 
it'll take FOUR Years for that to happen, so you got plenty of time.  PS. For 
those who want Ann so bad, the bar girl, don't invite Cliff to a Fall Winery
job on the 15th, that way, by the end of the year, his money would've ran out 
and he'll be forced to leave town, FOREVER.  That means Ann is all yours, 
MAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA………
sorry.

4. Girls' Heart Events
When I first played this game, the first one who I wanted to marry was Karen so
I'll start with her I'm just going describe how to trigger them because it's
basically self-explanatory on how to deal with it.  Like if your lady asks you
something like "help me out here?" or no?  Well, which decision is obviously
going to make her happy and heart go up?
There are seven Hearts to go through.
Black, Purple, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, and Red

Karen

Black Heart Event - When you first begin your game, you'll need to go to the
store to buy some seeds, on a Wednesday or Friday head to the store at 10:00am
- 1:00pm.  Keep an opened slot since she gives you a pack of Grass seeds.
Just in case.

Purple Heart Event - It's during the day whenever the shop's opened in the
morning.  Not on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.  Also, I triggered this one on a
saturday, sunny, at 10:00am.  A decision one of course.

Blue Heart Event - Well, this one occurs between 10am - 1pm on a Friday, head
to the grocery store and you'll be given decisions which I'm sure you guys
know what to do.  Triggered this on Friday at 10:20am.

*Green Heart Event - I dunno about this one but when Karen's heart is green,
you go to the Inn on sunday at 7:00pm - 10:00pm, to trigger this.  Dunno if
it boosts her heart, probably does.

Yellow Heart Event - Go to the superstore between 10:00am to 1:00pm, Monday,
Tuesday, or a Saturday.  You'll receive another decision making event which
I'm sure you'll know which one to pick.  I triggered it at 11:00am Saturday.
Change: For some reason, I triggered this on a Thursday too....guess it
goes for the days when the shop is open at that time.
Places to meet:  Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays - 8:00am
- 10:00pm, bench up north with Rick, that nerd.  1:00pm - 3:00pm, inside the
store, this is usually the best time to talk to her and give her a present.
7:00pm - 10:00pm, she'll head to the beach.  For Tuesdays, she'll be at the
springs in 1:00pm - 3:00pm, at the Bar at 7:00pm - 10:00pm I believe, Sundays
she'll be at the bar ONLY at 7:00pm - 10:00pm.  On rainy days, she'll be inside
 at the times given in the superstore.  Tuesdays though she'll be at Gotz's
house, Sundays, no change.

Items:  Bamboo shoots, which grows in the lake area next to the winter mine,
is the cheapest and she likes it a lot.  Took me only 10 days giving her a
bamboo shoot once a day, wrapped most of the time to get her heart to purple.
Wine and popcorn are nice ones too. Buy wine from the winery shop.
Extra love point if you buy at least one item from the shop.

Rival:  That nerd-looking Rick.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Ann

Black Heart Event - I triggered this at the beginning, on a Friday, raining,
(NOTE)  Rain probably has nothing to do with it I believe.  Around 10:00am -
1:00pm?  I triggered it at about 11:00pm.

Purple Heart Event - This is a decision making one which I'm sure you can 
handle, this is triggered when your on the second floor of the Inn between 
10:00am and 1:00pm on a Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.  Triggered
this on a Thursday 12:20pm.  Sunny.

Blue Heart Event - Trigger this by heading to the Inn on Mondays or Fridays 
around lunch time to 7:00pm.  This is another decision making.

Yellow Heart Event - Triggered around 10:00am to 7:00pm on Wednesday, Thursday,
Saturday, or Sunday.

Places to meet: Usually most of the time she's at the Inn either upstairs or
downstairs at around lunch time and such so it's easy to find her.  In the
mornings she can be found at the Hot Springs.

Items: She loves any egg dishes, I usually gave her scrambled.  Cliff also likes
this one too.  The best she likes are Truffle Rice, Cakes, and Cheese Fondu.
Extra love point if you buy at least one item from her dad's bar.  Water works 
too.

NOTE:You can jack her heart up to the next color if you trigger the Cliff's 
Photo Event.  
Around 11:00am - 1:00pm(I think that's the limit but it starts at 11:00am,
go to the square BUT ENTER IT from the SOUTH, like, go through yodel farm and
head north into the Square, then you'll trigger it, but it only triggers if it's
a winter and it's snowing.  Once you pick up the photo, give it to cliff and
you'll get his story on why he's so messed up.  Talk to Ann and her heart should
be at the next level.

A really funny event I found on FOGU, when Cliff is in bed, take out a tool and
use it until you drop dead and then you should trigger another event.

Rival: Shy dude Cliff
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Popuri

Black Heart Event - I triggered this on a Wednesday, sunny, I'm sure it has to 
be sunny, and around 4:50pm.  So maybe 2:00pm to 5:00pm.  I dunno but I entered 
the blacksmith shop, then I left at that time and that triggered this one.
EDIT: 11:00am - 6:00pm, it's strange to trigger so just enter the blacksmith 
and out.

Purple Heart Event - This is triggered when her heart is purple, just...well...
it'll happen, no need to go around and look for the trigger, you just need her
heart at a purple level.

Blue Heart Event - Triggered around 10:00am to 1:00pm at the Church.

Yellow Heart Event - Triggered in the Spring season around 10:00am to 1:00pm
at the chicken farm.  This would have to occur in the 2nd year, unless you can
get her heart to yellow ASAP.
*NOTE*Alexander has noted to me that he did this in Winter 20th, so I dunno
what to go by.  I suppose this occurs mainly in spring but the fact is that
it's inside the house, seasons shouldn't affect it that much
so maybe that's why.

Places to meet: Mainly at the chicken farm when it's opened.

Items: Scrambled eggs(Well, their chicken products)
Extra love point if you get 8 chickens from her farm.

Rival: Tan guy Kai
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Mary

Black Heart Event - Beginning of the game I triggered this one, on a Tuesday at
around 9:00am - 3:00pm, or at least when the library is opened, not on mondays
because it's closed on that day.

Purple Heart Event - Triggered at the library around 10:00am to 4:00pm
on Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday.

Blue Heart Event -  Triggered at the mountain peak at Mother's Hill between
1:00pm - 5:00pm on Monday, sunny, and need an opened slot in your item.
Thanks to both Ruujuu Ze Batto and Alicia for pointing this out to me.

Yellow Heart Event - Mary's house will trigger this between 10:00am to 1:00pm
on Monday since the Library is closed that day

Places to Meet: Library pretty much everyday and on mondays I believe she's at
the grocery store at 1:00pm.

Items: Grass, grape juice
Extra love point if you go upstairs in the library.

Rival: Grey, wears a hat
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Elli

Black Heart Event - Beginning of the game you can trigger this, go to the doc's
office at around 9:00am - 3:00pm, around there I think, I did this on a tuesday
so don't do it on a wednesday since that's when it's closed

Purple Heart Event - Triggered by heading to the Hospital around 9:00am to 
7:00pm on Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday.

Blue Heart Event - Triggered on Wednesday when the doc's office is closed
between 9:00am to 1:00pm.
NOTE: Ok GO TO Elli's house, it's not the church.

Yellow Heart Event - Trigger this at Mineral Beach between 9:00am to 6:00pm
on Wednesday, head to the dock.  I triggered this on wednesday, 9:10am.

Places to meet: Well, the hospital is where she's mostly at, you can meet her 
at the grocery store to on Wednesdays at 1:00pm.

Items: Milk, grass, pink cat flower
Extra love point by coming in on a daily basis to get a check-up by the doc.

Rival: The doc, who looks like a doc.

Goddess

I'm not even gonna bother, she's not even worth shooting for.  She has no rival
whatsoever and when you marry her, she doesn't wanna live with you anyways. So
why bother?  Though if you want her, she's at the waterfall(lake) next to the
hot springs.  Throw in a crop to summon her. You need to fish all species of
fishes including the 6 kings.  Ship at least one of every shippable item,
collect all 9 Jewel of Truth, Big Bed, Mine every type of ore in the mines, 
and be in your 5th year or later at the farm.

Note:  However, throw a crop once every day in a row, 10 will get you a power
berry.  Another 11 times she'll grant you a wish and ask you, who do you like?
If you say yes, she'll ask who and select the girl you like and she'll raise
her heart level.  Very useful.

Green heart event
	At mother's hill, the place, um, well, at the mountain peak, on the
	second year from 7:00am to 10:00pm, sunny of course, on Tuesdays,
	Friday, and Saturdays.  I triggered this on a Tuesday, 7:10am, Spring, 
	Sunny.

Orange heart event
	At the library, in the 4th year, on Saturday and Friday, from 1:00pm to
	4:00pm

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Doc's heart events with Elli

Black heart event
	At the hospital, you can trigger this the moment you first start the 
	gameand enter it, not on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and occurs from 
	9:00am to 7:00pm.  I triggered this on a thursday, rainy, on 10:00am.

Blue heart event
	Elli's house on a Monday from 9:00am to 7:00pm.  Triggered this at 
	around 2:00pm.

Green heart event
	At the hospital, in the 2nd year, not Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 
	9:00am to 7:00pm

Orange heart event
	At the beach, on the 4th year, Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 10:00pm on a
	sunny day.

Note:  As far as you can see, the last event that'll ensure the rivals to marry
	the ladies is in the 4th year, so you've got plenty of time to take
	advantage of that.  The last heart event occurs in the 4th year ONLY.
	However, once you've made up your mind on the lady
	you want, it doesn't hurt to try to avoid her rival's heart events which
	doesn't seem to be too hard to do.  I've married Karen and I haven't 
	even seen one Rival event from Rick without trying.  So once you've 
	made up your mind on a lady, try to make friends with the bachelors for 
	the other girls, give the doc(who likes eggs), 
	Cliff(Who likes scrambled eggs), uhh, dunno about the others, I'll have 
	to check, presents, talk with them a lot. If your good friends with 
	them, they'll invite you to their wedding which is nice to watch
	anyways.

6. Credit
Well, obviously I couldn't have done it without the help of GameFAQ's forums,
where everyone chipped in information which I gathered.  Plus, I bumped into a
number of these rival events quite quickly too when I played this game and my
friends who told me about the game too.

http://www.fogu.com/hm4/index.php

This site however, is the best site for
Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town.  This webmaster has everything you
could ask for, still have things to put up but it's extensive.

Questions:  No more, people keep asking me questions which are clearly answered
here in the faqs and questions that have nothing to do with this either.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Question:Do you have to follow the heart events?? or can you just give the 
	girls stuff and raise their hearts that way?

Answer: Yes, apparently it's a requirement and it can boost the girl's heart
levels by like a 1000 points or something so it's useful.  Yes, you can still
give her presents to raise their hearts but it's faster to do it together with
the events.

Question:Do the heart events happen over time, or do they just happen right 
	away?

Answer:Yeah, they happen over time, as you see above, each heart level makes it
possible to trigger an event which occurs only in a interval of time.  You have
to trigger it yourself.  I triggered Ann's yellow heart event RIGHT after her
heart turned yellow.  What I did was I gave her a present in the Inn, then left,
then went right back in and that triggered it.  Sometimes it'll be like that,
sometimes it wouldn't.

Question:I enterd Won's shop one day and saw a cutscene where Won gives Karen a
free item.  I thought Rick was the rival for Karen, not Won.

Answer:Don't worry, that's the only time he'll do something like that.

Question:To get karen's heart up to purple,  i've been giving her wine and
spa-boiled eggs.  you said to give her items for 10 straight days to get
her heart to purple.  But in every set of 10 days there is at least one
event day.  On event days i cant give Karen any items.  is there any other
way?  and what about twister days?  Is giving gifts the only way to raise
any heart level?

Answer:Ya, I used bamboo shoots, wrapped in presents form(Do it at the store),
once a day and about 10 days her heart went to purple.  For events, you'll
have to bear it, for twisters, well, their job is to piss you off.
Gifts and heart events are the way to a girls heart, events do it faster.
But gifts are constant so yeah, just do it both.

Question:on Ann's blue heart event she feels sick, and if you choose to
bring her to
the nursery, she will give you
a broken music box. do you know anything about it? like how to fix it?
please
tell me! its clogging up my Rustsack. i really need your help!

Answer:You need to buy the cabinet from the TV shopping Channel on
a saturday, this only works if you upgraded your house ONCE.  Then you can
put the box in there.  It's just something she gives her as a thank you
which you remember it by.
