2-My Ten Cents (Canadian)
=========================

This game is more addictive than breathing. I just couldn't put it down. The Time will fly by.
I must caution you to have a clock on top of your T.V. so you will not lose track of time. Oh ya 
remember to blink, starring at the T.V. for long periods of time, which you will be doing, will 
dry out your eyes.

As great as this game is it has small bugs and tons of them. For example some trees in the town
will just appear and disappear instead of scrolling on to the screen. Tops of buildings in the 
town will vanish. These are no big deal, the real weird one is the slow down when there are tons 
of characters on screen, for example during festivals. Plus the Game has froze on me twice since 
I got it. But this game is still one of the best games for the N64. 

One of the coolest things is that is has unlimited replay value because it doesn't end, you just 
keep going and going forever.

I give Harvest Moon 64 9/10 cents Canadian or for those Americans it is a 5.5/6 cents American.
Despite the flaws (the only reason it didn't get 10/10 cents) Buy this game now!

One of the Goals in this game is to fall in love with and then marry a girl. There are a total
of 5 lovely women to chose from. The first step in the game of love is to choose who you wish to 
marry. This is up to you. There is heart in the lower right hand corner of their Caption.

            it. Go see her the nest day and she will have a book. She will ask if you gave it 
            to her. Say yes to make her realy happy. 

   Comment: She is not that hard to marry, but You will have to compete with Harris. I think 
            having the Mayor as a father in-law would have it's perks

humble to say so.

            At some point she will sprain her ankle you can carry her or go for help. I am not 
            sure which is better.

   Comment: She is the Hardest to marry because she is realy expensive. She is a great cook so 
            she would probly be a great wife.

Popuri:
-------
Popuri is as bright and chipper as the flowers sold at her parent's florist shop. She loves to 
garden.

            You and Karen will get locked in the basement of that small storage biulding at the                                                             
Vinyard together. You will want to keep some food in your rucksack because she will                         
get hungry
            
   Comment: She doesn't get along with her family and they don't seem to like you either. If 
            you want to marry her you should try to be friendly with her family but also the

   Comment: Her brother hates you for no real reason. He is probly jealous of how much his 
            sister likes you.  

-Marriage
To get married you first have to get a pink heart to appear in the bottom right hand corner of
their caption. Then go to Rick's and buy the Blue Feather. Give the girl the feather and you 
will get married on the next Sunday. On of the perks of been married is that 

-Kids
You don't get your wife pregnant it will just happen if she is happy. To make her happy give her 
flowers and her favorite food, be home by 7:00 and talk to her. She will get tired and dizzy 
when she is pregnant but it is not final until she says she is pregnant. It will take about 1 
and half season for your wife to give birth. On that day you can't leave your farm. Just do all 
of the stuff you have to do then go into the house, after 3:00, and you will hear but not see 
your wife give birth. 

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

6-Animals
=========

-Pets
Dog
You get the dog right from the start. You can name him (up to 6 characters). You can enter him 
in the Dog race if you wish to. You don't need to feed him but if you want to make him real 
happy you should put some food into his bowl from time to time. 

Horse
Go to the Green ranch as soon as you start the game to get the horse. He is free. You can name 
him (up to 6 characters). He is a pony when you first get him. It will take awhile before he 
grows up. While he is a pony you should talk to him every day. When he becomes a horse you 
should brush him. If you put items into his saddle bags it will go right in to the shiping box.
Like your dog you can race the horse too. One thing that sucks is that you can't take him off 
the farm, except for when you go race.

-Livestock   
Chickens
You have to buy your first chicken from Green ranch. You can have up to 6 chickens After that 
you can put an egg into the incubator to get them for free. It take 3 days for a egg to hatch. 
Then you get a chick it will take another 7 days for it to mature. If you buy a chicken it comes 
fully matured. The major down side to chickens is that they don't eat fodder they eat chicken 
feed which you have to buy for 10g a meal.  

Chicken.....1500g
Feed..........10g
Egg...........50g

Sheep
You have to buy all your sheep from Green ranch. You can have up to 4 sheep. Sheep need to 
mature before you can cut off there wool. To cut off the wool you need to buy the sheers from 
Ricks To make your sheep happy you need to brush them and talk to them every day. Unfortunately 
they only give wool once a week. but you can get top dollar for high quality wool. They eat 
fodder. Which you can get by cutting down grass.

Sheep..........4000g
Normal wool.....900g
Quality wool...1800g
Sheers.........1000g
Brush...........600g

Cows 
You have to buy your first cow from Green ranch, but after that you can buy the Cow Potion and 
use it on a mature cow to get it pregnant. It takes 20 days for the Cow to give birth. During 
that time it will give less milk. When a Cow is born it starts out as a baby then grows in to a
young cow then to a Fully Matured Cow it take a long time but it is cheaper. To make your cow 
as happy as possible you need to brush it and talk to it every day. In return the Cow will give
you milk every day Cows eat the same fodder as the Sheep. To milk a cow you need to buy the 
milker off Rick. You can enter one of your Cows in the Cow contest. If your cow wins it will 
give gold milk. 

Cow.............6000g
Small Milk.......100g
Medium Milk......150g
Large Milk.......300g
Gold Milk........500g
Milker..........1800g
Brush............600g
Bell.............Free

Note: Livestock can get sick and die but pets can't.

-How to win Races and the Cow Festival
One of the best parts of haveing animals is showing them off. You can show off the talent of 
your horse and your dog by racing them and you can show off your Cow at the Cow fetival. These 
events will play a big role in how sucessful you are.

Races
=====

-The Horse Races
There are two Horse race in each year. They are:

Race 1.....Spring 17th
Race 2.......Fall 28th
Note:You will not ready to race in the first ace of year 1. 

The key to winning is preparation, if your is too tired it can't run fast. To get your horse 
ready do the following every day starting about one month in advance:

-Brush it
-And ride it.

Note:In order to get in all the riding you need without wasting any time don't walk arond your
farm ride. No matter how far you are going you should ride you horse if it's from your house to 
you barn or whatever. Riding will pay off. 

When you actually race you should pace yourself hit the buton slowly then whe the crowed roars
pound away. It is that simple.


-The Dog Races 
There is only one race every year.

Dog Race.........Winter 19th

The key is the same as with horse racing preparation, Because you don't control your dog it is 
the only factor. I have heard that hitting the A button whe you dog race can help, but I am not
sure. Do this every day:

-feed him (just put food in his bowl
-leave him inside at night and on snowy and rainy day.
-get him to case you

The best way to get him to case him is too call him then get on your horse and he will case 
you. Because you are on your horse you go faster.  


-Betting (The same for dogs and horses)
This is the real reason you race, to win medals and get prizes. You can get different prizes for 
each of the races. 

---Complete List of prizes coming soon---

When you bet you need to buy medal which cost 50g each. The trick to betting is the odds, the 
lower the number the better the chance there is that that horse or dog will win. But Long 
shots, the ones with high numbers, get a bigger pay off. This is because they times the number 
of medals you bet by the odd so therefore the higher the odd the bigger the pay off. 
Unfortunatly Long shots never win. I suggest wait until you have a ton of money then bet on all 
the favored horses, the ones with the low numbers. You can get about 400 medals this way.


The Cow Festival
================
The Cow festival takes place on the 4th of fall. If you win your cow will give gold milk. Each 
gold milk is worth 500g. I suggest entering a different cow each year so they will all give 
gold milk. All you have to do is keep your Cows as happy as possible. To make them happy do 
this.

-Feed them everyday.
-Brush them everyday.
-Don't bring them outside when it rains. 

If you do this they will win for sure. It works for me.

9-The Basics
============

-Controls
Control Stick
Moves you around the map and the menu screens.

L and R
Either button rotates the view of your farm.

Start
Pauses the Game and brings up the Rucksack screen.

Z Button
Identifies a selected item.

A Button
Selects menu options, talk, open doors, give or throw an item you are holding.

Right-C

-Crop Strategies
First you should Clear all your land.

Pattern Legend
- = fence
[] = crop

Grass- Fence off a large section near the door to your bar to use for a grazing field. You might
want to plant some more grass just for cutting down. Myself, I feed all my Cows and sheep fodder 
because it is easier than taking them out side, and they still give the best milk too.
|--  --------|
|[][][][][][]|   If you find yourself getting not enough fodder you should expand the fence and 
|[][][][][][]|   grow more grass.
|[][][][][][]|
|[][][][][][]|
|[][][][][][]|
|[][][][][][]|
|------------|

Other crops-
I have divide the crops into two sections, one for replantable crops and the other is 
non-replantable crops.

Repantable
-Cabbage
-Potatoes
-Turnips

1)[][][]    2)[][][]     [][][]
  [][][]      [][]   or  [][][]
  [][][]      [][][]     [][]
Use 1 as soon as you get the Golden Watering Can. Before that use 2 because you can't water the
middle square. I dosen't really matter which one but you have to leave one square out so you 
can get to the middle square.


Non-Replantable
-Corn
-Tomatoes
-Strawberries
-Eggplant

1)[][][]     [][][]
  [][]   or  [][][]
  [][][]     [][]
Since you only need to plant these vegetables once you can't get to the crop in to the center. 
So you need to leave one crop out, it is up to you.

Staggered Planting
Once you start growing tons of crops it will take you all day to harvest them an easy solution 
is what I call stagered Planting. This is when you plant 1 3x3 square on day one than the next 
on day two an so on till on your crops are planted. This way all your crops won't harvest on the 
same day. Instead they will be stagered over a few days depending on how many crops you plant.

Note:You don't need to do this in a green house because time dosen't pass while you are inside.  

-Livestock Strategies
Keep all your Livestock inside.

Chickens
There is not much to chickens just feed them every day and they will give you eggs. Unlike Cows
and Sheep you don't have to make them happy, because they only give one quality of eggs

Sheep
This should be the first animal you get. To make them happy you need to do 3 thing to them 
every day.
-Talk to them
-Feed them
-Brush them

If you do this every day your sheep will give you the best wool. 

Cows
To get the best milk from your Cows you need to win the Cow Festival. Just follow the same 3 
steps as for the sheep.
-Talk to them
-Feed them
-Brush them

By year 2 you should be ready to enter the Cow Festival.

Year 2 and up - New Years Festival 
To celebrate the new year every one gets together and has a party. There is a rule that you 
have to drink after you talk to someone. After 2 Drinks you will Pass out and get carried home
I suggest you talk the women you wish to marry and the other is your choice.  

Year 1 - 3rd  FIRST DAY ON THE FARM
The mayor will show up and take you on a tour of the town.

Year 1 - 4th to 6th
Clear your entire farm, and plant your first crop. I recemmend cabbage.
Get your Horse from Green Ranch during this time. It is Free!!!.
Note:You Should talk to your Horse every day.

All Years - 8th - Planting Festival
This is the Day of the Planting Festival. This festival celebrates the begining of spring.
In this Festival the King and his helper go up in a balloon and every one else lets little
balloons filled with seeds go, in hope they land on the ground and grow.

All Years - 15th 
On this Day popuri's Father will return home. In year on he will be starving you will need to 
feed him. You can go to him for help because he is an expert with plants.

All Years - 16th - Sign up For Horse Race
in the morning the owner of Green Ranch will come to the far and ask you if you wish to enter 
the race. If you are in you first year your horse will be too young to race. 

All Years - 17th - Horse Race
You can't enter in the first year because your Horse is still a pony, but you can still bet on
the race. There are total of 3 races and you get to bet medals which you have to buy for 50g 
each. Personally I don't bet because it is too hard to guess on who is going to and it is random 
so you can't cheat. The best way to win is to bet on all the hourse when you have money to waste 
because it is expensive.  

All Years - 18th-22nd - Vote for the Queen
To vote you need to go to the town square. There will be a bow on a table on the bottom part of
the square. 
Note:You can't dance with the Queen unless you are the King. The King is chosen in the Fall. 

All Years - 23rd - Flower Festival
This festival is for praising the goddess. A girl is choosen to dress up as the goddess and she
will dance with the king. You should buy the Empty bottle off Rick and the Power nut from the 
salesman. The nut is actually a power berry. If you aren't the king you will need to dance with 
someone other than the Queen. To ask them to dance just talk to the Mayor, he will tell you to 
pick a partner, then talk to the girl you want to dance with. 

Tips for Spring.
-Keep a vegetable in your Rucksack for the Vegtable festival. There is not enough time to grow 
 one before the festival in the summer
-In year 1 try not to let a day go by without making money. You whant to get the green house as 
 soon as possible
-If it rains don't stay out too long or you will get sick.

should wait for your wife to ask you if you want to go. 

Year ? - Bambo Float
I don't know if you can go to this event until after you are married, because I didn't know 
about it until she asked if I wanted to go. It is held in the forest by the river. You write a
wish on a piece of paper then float it down the river. If your boat makes it down the river 
without sinking then your wish will come true. You can choose from one of three wishes, family, 
weather, or harvest.

All Years - 9th - Vegetable Festival
This is why you should have saved a vegetable, if not you can judge. ALthough you don't do 
anything at all. A special food judge is brought in to choose the best vegetable. I didn't get 
anything for winning.   

All Years - 17th - Firefly Festival
This is a Festival where you float flowers in order to honnor the dead. It take place at the 
Beach at night.

All Years - 24th - Sea Festival
This festival is just a swimming race to usher in the swimming season. It is real easy to win 
just press A as rapidly as you can. In the first year you will win the invincible thing. (I 
know the real name but I can't sell it, so don't ask me too)

Tips for Summer.
-In year 1 you should try to make as much money as possible. Do this by growing tons of crops. 
 You should also get some livestook of some kind. I would buy a Cow or a sheep.
-Chop wood everyday, because you need 580 pieces to build the green house.

different Cow each year so they can all get Gold milk.

All Years - 12th - Harvest Festival 
This is the festival where they choose who is going to be King for next year. To find out if 
you are going to be King talk to Elli she will give you a piece of cake if there is a coin in 
it then you are going to be King if not then someone else is. I sugest trying this day because 
being King is a big deal. After this you get to Dance. So pick your partner then the day will 
end

All Years - 20th - Egg Festival
This is not realy a festival it is more of a sporting event. You need to find a coloured egg 
that matches one the mayor holds up. If you win you will get a Power berry.  


Year 1 - 23rd-27th - Work on the Bridge
Over these 5 days you will get 1000g a day if you help the carpenters with the bridge. All you 
have to do is go to the Woods and the rest is atomatic. They only work till 3:00 so you can get
5000g over the 5 days for doing nothing. Great!!!

All Years - 28th - Horse Race  
This race is the same as the one in the spring only in the first year your horse will be fully 
matured and ready to race. If you want to race and win you should ride your horse and brush it 
too every day of this month. If you don't race you can still bet on the other races. when you 
race you should push the A botton slowly at frist them speed up when the crowd cheers.


Tips for fall.
-You won't get much money from vegtable so try to focas on your livestock and other ways to 
 make money 
-Make sure you have 30 pieces of fodder per cow and/or sheep.
-start to get your horse ready ate the begging of the season if you want to race.
