need this section but, for those new people that just began playing the game 
might need this section.

    CONTROL PAD- You can press the Control Pad to control the direction the 
you want to face. Hold down the Control Pad will make your character walk in 
the direction that you are facing.
    B BUTTON- You can hold the B Button to run instead of walking. This 
button also cancels any action on a main menu.
    A BUTTON- You will use the tool that you have equipped and will harvest 
any produce that is ready to be picked if you are empty handed. It will also 
throw any produce that you are holding in your hands.
    START- You can press the Start Button to scroll through the four 
different tools that you are currently carrying while you are working.
    SELECT- This will pause the games and activates the games information 
menu. If you press it again you can see a second menu. 

********************
IV. INTRODUCTION
********************    
        I this part of this FAQ, I will tell you what the main objective is 
to the game. It's not that hard to beat the objective, but is hard to get all 
the secrets in the game.
        The mayor will give you three years to turn around a wrecked and 
junked up farm that is located near the border of the village. There is a lot 
of work needed on the farm and your the only person that could make the farm 
lively again, but this is an really undefeatable task to do. You will also 
need a ton of confidence and hours of hard work to make the farm lively and 
clean again. The neighbors will help with your work a little bit, but you 
have to be nice to them and give them presents. Can you be the ultimate 
farmer? Will you ever clear all of the land and grow hundreds of crops? Those 
are the questions that will be going through your head.  

********************
V. THE BEGINNING
********************
        When you first turn on your Gameboy, or Gameboy Color, you see a boy 
and a girl walking together with cows, sheep, chickens, and chicks following 
behind the boy and the girl. After that, you get to choose if you want to 
start a new game, or continue a game, Erase a game, and Copy a game. If you 
start a new game, you get to choose if your going to be a male or female(Both 
work equally hard). After that, you have to pick your name, but the most your 
name can be is four letters long. After you pick you name, You get to choose 
the season and day your birthday is. After that, you pick your pet type. Dogs 
will chase off wild animals that could scare your animals and/or destroy your 
crops. Cats will bring home some items every once in a while, like coins, 
seeds, etc.

********************
VI. THE SHOPS
********************
        Unlike other Harvest Moon Gameboy Color games, you can walk all 
around town, but, like other Harvest Moon Gameboy Color games, when you enter 
a shop, you can't walk around, you only get to buy stuff. The seven shops are 
the blacksmiths, the library, the carpenter, the restaurant, the floweriest, 
the hospital, and the ranch. Their are two other houses, and one of the 
houses I know is the mayors house. The other house is the church.

        (((((*****THE BLACKSMITHS*****))))) (or tool shop): Person who works 
at shop is Will- The blacksmiths is where you can buy tools and other 
appliances. The items that you can buy are the milk machine, the net, the 
shovel, and the fishing pole. You also can get a game here.

        MOLE BASH GAME- You should get this game sometime around in the 
Summer. To get this game, hoe around your fields as much as possible. At the 
end of Spring, your hoe should break. Bring it to Will and he says he will 
fix it for free! After three days have passed, pick up the Golden Hoe and 
then head back home. Hoe around the fields until you get a message saying, 
"The moles have taken over!" The next day after you get the message, go to 
Will's shop and you can buy the Mole Bash Game for 3480g. To play the game, 
turn on your television and then the television will ask what you want to do, 
watch the weather station or play games.

        MILK MACHINE- price: 1800g- Once you buy a cow and it has grown 
enough, you can milk the cow with this. The bigger the cow, the more milk you 
get, and the more milk you get, the more money.
        NET- price: 500g- You get catch butterflies with this in the 
mountains.
        SHOVEL- price: 2000g- You can dig around your farm with this tool. 
Who knows what you might find while digging.....
        FISHING POLE- price: 2000g- You can fish on your farm with this. Go 
down to the bottom section of your farm to where the river is, and start 
fishing. The bigger the fish, the more money it's worth.

        (((((*****THE LIBRARY*****))))): Person who works at shop is Mary- In 
here you can trade items with friends, view your picture books, and view your 
album. 

        COMPUTER- Well, you can't really buy this item. What you do with it 
is that you can trade with some of your friends when you click on it. You can 
trade seeds, animals, and other sorts of things. If you trade a chicken, you 
will get a gold chicken that is worth  a lot of money and is a good 
investment to your farm.

        FISH PICTURE BOOK- Once you get the fishing pole, this option will 
appear at the library. This picture book contains pictures of the various 
fish you have caught. I will now tell you the different pictures and the 
different fish you can catch.

greenhouse and a Bridge, for a price.

        *****BIG CHEAT*****- If you watch the television station and it says 
that it is going to rain or a hurricane the next day, you can avoid it. If 
you don't have every extension, you can do this cheat. The day before the bad 
weather, go to Ken and ask him to make and estimate for any extension. The 
next day he will come to your farm to make the estimate and the weather will 
be fine. You also don't have to build the thing that you asked him to 
estimate since you have the option yes or no.

        HOUSE EXTENSION- If you have enough wood and money, you can have an 
addition on your house.
        EXPANSION OF THE COW STABLE- The carpenter will extend your cow 
stable.

your farm.

is good if you are tired from your work.

so you can work harder.

to you.

you are not sick, you won't be treated.
 
        (((((*****THE RANCH*****))))): Person who works at this shop is ???- 
The ranch is where you get your animals, animal food, and animal medicane. It 
is basicly where you go if you need something for your animal(s) or if you 
want to get one. I will now explain more in detail of which animals you can 
buy and how much everything costs.

VIII. THE PLACES
********************

        Their are four different places you can travel to in the game. These 
are, the town, the town square, your farm, and the mountains. Each place has 
it's own uniqueness.

        THE TOWN- In the town, their are seven shops that you can visit. 
Their is also the mayor's house and the church. Their are always a couple of 
people wandering around the town (except at nighttime).

        THE TOWN SQUARE- Their is not really much in the town square. Their 
is a bulletin board that tells you some news in the town, but that is really 
about it. Also, some people do wander around the town square and they are 
eager to talk to people.

        YOUR FARM- Your farm is pretty big compared to most of the other 
places. The buildings on your farm are, your house, the horse stable, the cow 
stable, and the chicken house. In your house, you have a TV and your bed. The 
horse stable is where your horse sleeps, but you can't walk in the horse 
stable. 
        The cow stable is were your cows are kept. The chicken house is where 
your chickens are held. To get to where you actually grow crops, you have to 
go inside either the cow stable or the chicken stable, and in the back in 
both of them, their is a door. Behind the door are the fields and there are 
tons of boulders, weeds, and stumps in the fields. Their is another place 
where you can grow crops on your farm too!!! Go down to the bottom of your 
farm and you can grow crops along the river.
        You can go fishing in the river and catch different kinds of fish. 
Also, the secret garden that is in the lower left hand side of the farm keeps 
track of how many power berries you have ate. If you ate two, there will be 
two flowers in the secret garden.

        THE MOUNTAINS- In the mountains, you can collect different kinds of 
fruits and mushrooms. You can also chop some wood there if you are short on 
supply. If you keep going farther up the mountains, you will find a hot 
spring. You can jump in the springs and relax. While you are relaxing in the 
springs, you are also gaining more strength so you won't be as tired. It is a 
good idea to go to the springs if you are tired and out of strength because 
it will restore some of it.

********************
IX. THE MAPS
********************
        There are so many maps I have decided to add a section for it. Well, 
I already explained everything in the PLACES section, but it was a little 
confusing so I am deciding to draw a map everything to make it less confusing 
and so you can understand it.
