    This in-depth guide will cover the exact requirements, locations, and other
    variables necessary to obtain the 16 photos in Harvest Moon 64. Every photo
    has been tested extensively and figured out for your playing pleasure in those
    difficult Full Album challenge runs. And yes, even the exact requirements for
    the mysterious Party Picture have finally, after over ten long years since the
    game's release, been fully discovered and realized! Many people have turned
    from this game after playing a file for months and coming to the game's end
    only to realize their Full Album challenge run was a failure and were not sure
    as to why they played so perfectly, yet did not obtain that photo. Those
    concerns are now a thing of the past!

    Version 1.00 - May 30th, 2011
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
    I only expect to release this document once, in terms of content as I'm very
    certain I've uncovered everything right down to the programming aspect of it
    all. Updates will likely be grammatical and / or spelling fixes, or otherwise
    information I either discover myself, or I'm informed of and tests prove such
    information to be positive and accurate.
    
    I completed all of this work beforehand, as I'm simply not the type of guy
    that likes to submit half or partially completed work, thus the only date I
    really have to provide at this time is the release date to GameFAQs.
    
    This initial release took somewhere around 96 hours of work to compose and
    analyze the game while recording and organizing the information into a decently
    readable format.
    
    Version 1.01 - June 22nd, 2011
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
    As per forum boards feedback for bringing up the fact that the Blue Mist Seed
    can be purchased on not just the 25th of Spring, but managed to purchase it
    on the 24th, leading to me testing exactly what span of dates you can actually
    purchase the seed.. the dates have been updated appropriately. Turns out to be
    Spring 24th - Summer 30th.

                                        [Photo]
    
    Most photos in Harvest Moon 64 require the player to check your mailbox the day
    after you meet the requirements to obtain any of the photos. There are two
    exceptions. Grandpa's Photo and the Party Picture. The format I will be using
    will first title the name of the photo as you read its description in the
    photo album, followed by its search index code, then an alternate name for
    the photo in quotations, finally finishing with the mechanics and various
    requirements where applicable. The photos will be listed in order as they
    appear in the Photo Album.

    "Riding The Balloon Photo"
    
    Year 2 or later, if you are the Harvest King for that year, you will ride the
    balloon if you attend the optional Planting Festival. Doing so, automatically
    nets you the photo.
    
    For example, if you were chosen as the Harvest King in year 2, then at the
    Planting Festival in year 3, you will ride the balloon (make sure you attend
    the festival as it is optional) and thus gain the photo the following day.

    "Horse Race Victory Photo"
    
    You must first enter your horse into one of the two annual Horse Races (Spring
    17th, or Fall 28th). You are asked if you'd like to enter the horse into the
    race on Spring 16th and Fall 27th every year, if your horse meets the
    requirements to enter a race. That requirement is simply being an adult horse,
    which takes 20 sleeps after obtaining the horse from the Green Ranch employees.

    These are the exact requirements that have to be met when you enter your farm
    screen, in order to trigger the scene with the three girls you see commonly at
    races and some festivals, from which they will ask to take a photo with you,
    them, and your cow. If you decline, you will never get this opportunity to get
    the photo again, so make sure you agree with their request to do so.
    
    Requirements:
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
    -You've won a Cow Festival at least once.
    -It is Fall.
    -You have a least 1 square of grass at any stage of growth for the grass.
    -A cow that produces Golden Milk has to be outdoors (not inside the barn).
    -No other events from the same byte with priority occur beforehand (requires
    sleeping, and meeting the requirements the next day).

    On Winter 16th, year 1, head over to the fisherman's tent screen and you will
    be stopped by the Head Carpenter with a request to help the carpenters work
    until 3:00 pm. You can decline, but doing so will make you forfeit the
    possibility of ever obtaining this photo again. Make sure to accept, and that
    is the only requirement to earn the photo after viewing the few scenes which
    take place.

    Once you have one of the five marryable girls up to 220 affection or higher,
    and you have purchases the Kitchen house extension, as well as the Kitchen
    being completely finished construction, you will be able to buy a Blue Feather
    from the Tool Shop for 980G.
    
    Once you have the Blue Feather, you can use it as a tool on one of the
    marryable girls, but the Blue Feather will only disappear after you've used it,
    if the girl of your choosing has accepted your proposal to get married. She
    will only legitimately accept if her affection is 220 or higher.
    
    The next time you sleep on a Saturday, you will wake up Sunday morning to a
    wedding ceremony that starts and finishes the entire day. This is how you earn
    the photo.

    After you have married one of the five possible girls (see previous photo), a
    counter will begin ticking every time you go to sleep (this is the Insemination
    Counter). It increases by 1 every sleep. Once it reaches 30, and your wife's
    affection is 250 or higher, a new counter will begin ticking from 0, called the
    Pregnancy Counter. Once this value reaches 60, even if your wife has 0
    affection, so long as she has not "left you for being at 119 affection or
    lower" without coming back, (which prevents that event from ever happening
    again) your wife will have a baby the following day. Whether you miss it or
    not, you trigger the permanent baby being born event byte, and ultimately that
    is how you obtain this photo.

    your farm screen or be waiting on the farm screen for you to talk to her. If
    you choose not to, you will never be able to get this photo again. If you talk
    to her and say you are busy, you will also never be able to get this photo
    again. Make sure you agree to her request, and the night will conclude after

    During year 2 or later.. anywhere from Spring 24th - Summer 30th, the Flower
    Shop sells a very rare seed (but never sells it again if you obtain this
    photo) from which after purchasing for 500G, Popuri will stop you
    immediately as you leave the Flower Shop and insist you plant it on the
    goddess pond screen. She warns you to water the plant every day.. so make
    sure you do. After you have watered it once per day for 18 days straight,
    without missing a single day, you will begin encountering new scenes as you
    enter that screen. You do not require any affection or special statistics,
    just talk to Popuri and the old crazy looking nature man you've never seen
    anywhere else until he takes a photo (the second time you see him, which is
    when you see Popuri admiring the blue butterfly over the flower you've been
    watering). Once he takes that photo, you have earned this photo.

    The first requirement is to trigger the restored vineyard byte (or in normal
    people's language, you must first restore the vineyard). To accomplish this,
    bring Duke up to 38 or higher affection (the bar owner) and talk to him to
    receive the special old bottle of wine. If he refuses to give it to you on a
    night you're sure he is at the correct level of affection, try again the next
    night and he will 100% chance give it to you. Once you have this old bottle of
    wine, bring the Harvest Sprite's affection up to 50 or higher. Once you
    accomplish this, and talk to them again, they will comment on the old bottle of
    wine Duke gave you. Once they have commented on the wine, talk to the Sprites
    yet again, and they will suggest you "ask the Goddess about it". This is the
    trigger which allows you to proceed to the next step. Take an egg or any crop
    you grew on your farm and throw it into the pond on the goddess pond screen to
    summon the Harvest Goddess. You will only have two choices this time, instead
    of the usual four. Don't be an idiot and choose the option that cancels. Choose
    the option to restore the vineyard. A scene will happen and the day will
    forcefully come to an end.
    
    Now.. come Fall 6th, when you go to sleep that night. The Harvest Goddess will
    appear above you while you sleep and inform you that the faries. Once this has
    happened, you have officially triggered the restored vineyard byte.
    
    The rest of the requirements are to have Karen at 200 or higher affection. On
    Fall 7th, between 6:00 pm and 11:59 pm, Karen will either walk onto your farm
    screen or be waiting on the farm screen for you to talk to her. If you choose
    not to, you will never be able to get this photo again. If you talk to her and
    say you are busy, you will also never be able to get this photo again. Make
    sure you agree to her request, and the day will conclude after the scenes, from
    which earns you this photo.
    
    Required to check mailbox the day after.

    "Bought & Built All House Extensions Photo"
    
    There is a carpenters house across the bridge on the left side of the
    fisherman's tent screen. In here there is a picture-like object hanging on the
    back wall from which you can interact with by 'talking to' it. This will open a
    menu showing six possible house extensions you can purchase for certain amounts
    of lumber and G. Each extension takes a few days to complete contsruction
    before you are able to begin another one. Once you have purchased all six, and
    they are completely finished being built, you have automatically earned this
    photo.

    "Party Picture / Evaluation Photo"
    
    The following lists are the exact requirements for obtaining this photo and
    must be valid before initiating the evaluation on Summer 1st, year 3.
    
    Statistics
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
    -Max Stamina: Must be 190 or higher, which can only be done by collecting at
    least 6 or more of the 10 possible power nuts throughout the game.
    
    -Happiness Meter: Must be 250 or higher (Max is 255).
    
    -Dog's affection: Must be 200 or higher. The dog's affection does NOT count
    toward the General Affection Total requirement below, and also the dog does not
    have to be fed or cared for.
    
    -Wife's affection: Must be 250 or higher (Max is 255). Your wife's affection
    DOES count toward the General Affection Total requirement below!
    
    Events
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
    -You must be married to one of the five marryable girls (actual wife modifier
    byte AND marriage ceremony boulder byte).
    
    -You must have had a baby with your wife, and the baby must be born. The baby
    does not have to be sitting up, or walking, or talking (baby born boulder
    byte).
    
    Affection
    ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
    
    General Affection Total (GAT): Your wife absolutely has to be at 250 or higher
    affection which is included in this total affection requirement. Baby affection
    after all those ridiculous rumors you've heard is NOT necessary to increase to
    any certain level whatsoever. The baby can be at 0 affection, so long as your
    wife is at 250 or higher and you meet the GAT requirements.
    
    So, INCLUDING your wife's affection, the total must be equal to 2,494 affection
    or higher (there is no relevance to why this exact number was chosen, it
    doesn't have an even looking hex value or anything).
    
    This is almost 10 NPCs (9.7) at max affection (255), including your wife,
    should you only wish to abuse maxing out a certain few NPCs to meet the
    requirements for this photo.
    
    Here is the list of NPCs that affect the GAT (basically every single villager
    with an affection value possible):
    
    Popuri
    Ann
    Karen (even if she is gone forever)
    Maria
    Elli
    
    Reminder: The one you married MUST be at 250 or higher affection, but still
    contributes to this GAT list.
    
    Jeff
    Kai (even if he is gone forever)
    Gray
    Cliff (even if he is gone forever)
    Harris
    
    Baby (yours)
    Gourmet Judge
    The Shipper
    The Mayor
    Sydney
    Stu
    Harvest Sprite #1
    Harvest sprite #2
    Harvest sprite #3
    Sasha 
    Saibara
    Rick
    Potion Shop Owner
    Pastor Brown
    Midwife
    Mayor's Wife
    May
    Lillia
    Kent
    Head Carpenter
    Greg
    Gotz
    Ellen
    Duke
    Doug
    Carpenter #1 (Saw)
    Carpenter #2 (Axe)
    Basil
    Barley
    
    Misc.
    ¯¯¯¯¯
    
    -You require having at least 1 adult chicken, it does not have to be outdoors,
    it does has to be fed though. It cannot be in Starved state the day of or the
    day after evaluation.
    
    -You require having all 6 house extensions present and completely built (the 6
    you can buy from the carpenters at the carpenter's house).
    
    -384 squares or more of your 480 possible squares on the farm land must be
    grass in any stage of growth (can be cut, eaten, half grown, fully grown, it
    does not matter as long as it is grass). This is EXACTLY 80% of your field. The
    squares in your greenhouse do not contribute toward this photo in any way,
    shape, or form. Especially since you can't grow grass in the greenhouse anyway.
    Here is a list of examples that don't count toward the total number of grass
    squares (only an idiot should need to read this list as I should have clearly
    got the point across that ONLY GRASS SQUARES ARE COUNTED):
    
    -Soil.
    -Tilled soil.
    -Watered soil.
    -Watered and tilled soil.
    -Bushes.
    -Small / large rocks.
    -Stumps.
    -Fences.
    -Broken fences.
    -Any crops in ANY stage (seed, sprout, growing, grown, dead).
    -Hacked / cheated mountain foragable objects, example; poisonous mushrooms.
    
    What is NOT required for the photo, just to show absolutely everything has been
    tested, verified and double checked:
    
    -Requiring ANY cows or sheep: NONE AT ALL! Believe it or not, you can have zero
    cows or sheep!
    
    -Cow's / sheep's affection: Animal's affection levels do not matter, they can
    all be 0. Irrelevant.
    
    -Caring for cows or sheep the day before: Unnecessary. Irrelevant.
    
    -Gold milk producing cow: Had 0 producing Golden Milk. Irrelevant.
    
    -Whether cows or sheep are outdoors: Irrelevant.
    
    -Power Nuts: You can remove the presence of all 10 power nuts, and you will
    still gain the photo so long as your maximum stamina is at the required amount.
    
    -The other 15 photos in album: Seeing as the only event bytes that are
    necessary to trigger that contribute to this photo as being married and having
    a baby born, naturally, you will have these two photos either in your mailbox
    or in your album once you've received them in the mail. Nothing you can do
    about this. You will also naturally have the house extensions completed photo
    for the same reasons as per requirements of the party picture. Speaking from a
    mechanics standpoint, you do not REQUIRE any of the other photos at all to
    obtain the party picture, you will just have met the requirements for three of
    the other photos in order to meet the requirements for this photo.
    
    Alcohol Tolerance: Can be 0.
    
    Current G: Can be 0.
    
    Shipping box: Can be 0
    
    Fodder: Can be 0.
    
    Lumber: Can be 0.
    
    Chicken feed: Can be 0.
    
    Medals: Can be 0.
    
    Any seed count (in the bags you have leftover for planting): Can be 0.
    
    Bakery / Flower Shop raffle card points: Can be 0.
    
    Number of shipped ANYTHING: Everything, every total ship count can be at 0 in
    sync.
    
    Fish caught: Can be 0.
    
    Tool EXP: Can be 0, can have all level one tools.
    
    Item / Tool slots: Nothing necessary, can delete everything.
    
    Key Items: Nothing necessary, can delete everything.
    
    Harvest King Title: A rival can be King as well as you, no affect on photo.
    
    Baby's Growth Stage: Baby can be in bundle on baby bed, sitting up, walking, or
    talking, and it won't make a difference.
    
    Insemination / Pregnancy: Irrelevant, seeing as you must have a born baby.
    
    Horse affection: Can be 0.
    
    Any kind of cultivation in greenhouse: Does not contribute, tested all square
    types possible. Cannot grow grass. Irrelevant.
    
    Recipes: 0 recipes required.

    Firstly, I will give credit to the board users of GameFAQs for providing
    information on rumors and possible variables for the Party Picture requirements
    as well as ridiculous rumors such as a second photo album and a Grand Hall
    location when you fill said second album. Proud to prove its existence is
    completely false!
    
    Sam Van Dam, this shout-out is for you, sir. Thank you!
    
    Next, I have to thank the makers of the Cheat Engine software, which allowed me
    to view any and every byte within the game to closely monitor values as they
    change in real time, right to the millisecond! This program is the magic behind
    all of my testing and statistical information, everything from pointer scans,
    to memory region access programming routes. Thank you!
    
    Next, Hollow_Point_MK gets credit for bringing up the fact that the Blue Mist
    Seed can be purchased on not just the 25th of Spring, but managed to purchase
    it on the 24th, leading to me testing exactly what span of dates you can
    actually purchase the seed.. the dates have been updated appropriately. Turns
    out to be Spring 24th - Summer 30th.
    
    Next, I must thank the staff of GameFAQs for looking over the document and
    considering it for approval.
    
    Next, I must thank Victor Interactive Software, the developer team that created
    this wonderful game for us all to play and enjoy however we see fit without
    having to worry about things like if the next boss will kill us or anything
    like that!
    
    Finally, I credit myself for the hard work put into the data collection. I'm
    only satisfied when I do all of this number crunching myself, as it seems in
    the past when verifying someone else's work I ALWAYS seem to find errors..
    and of course for writing this document.
