Introduction to Harvest Moon: Back to Nature
=======================================================================
First of all, I will give you a brief introduction of Harvest Moon: 
Back To Nature. You play a role of a character [I would called him 
'Hero' or 'you' by default].

Hero is a little boy who is supposed to go on a vacation with his 
father. Before they go for a vacation, his father has been asked to go 
on a business trip and left Hero at their grand father's farm at 
Mineral Village.

Hero thinks that it's going to be boring there as there isn't any for 
him to do. His grandfather even tells him that there won't be much to 
do since he is going to be to busy working on the farm.
(That explains why you got those cut-scenes of Hero being chased by the 
farm animals)

While his stay at there, Hero has met a girl and become fast friends 
with her. He spends hours with her and both of them enjoyed each 
other's company. When it comes time for Hero to return back home, he 
has promised the girl that he will come back some day to pay her a 
visit again...

(10 years have passed...)

Now Hero is back his grandfather's farm, he find out that his 
grandfather has passed away. The mayor comes in and tells you he will 
give you three years to fix up his grandfather's farm. He decided to 
try to fix up the farm and perhaps he may get the chance to meet the 
girl once again...

Author's Note
=======================================================================
Well, it has been a while since I have been typing new FAQ(s). This is 
my eleventh and it is maybe my last FAQ. I will still be making updates 
to my other FAQ(s) and try to correct all the errors.

[Version 1.0] - 16-Feb-2001
Seeing this game is under the top requests, I was more determined to
make this FAQ a better one. Hopefully, I don't really get e-mails like
the one that I have gotten for FF8.

Besides playing Brigandine - Legend of Forsena [which I played three 
years ago], this is the third game, which makes me feel so obsessed 
with the game-play. It is really fun to play where you can do some 
farming. (Err... I never thought that farming was so fun.)

IMO, it is a great game. BTW, I have heard that there is a version of 
this game for N64 and Game-boy but I don't own it. There are a lot of
cut-scenes,  which I have missed throughout my game-play and hopefully
by introducing this FAQ, I get the chance to learn more about the game.

It takes you a while to master the basics of Harvest Moon: BTN. Please
read the 'Contact the Author - E-mail Policy' section, otherwise don't
blame me if I did not reply your e-mail. BTW, even if you follow my
e-mail policy, there are chances that I would not reply, as I am still
schooling. I will try my best to reply during weekends. BTW, if you
don't get my response, I would recommend you to visit GameFAQs message
board.

BTW, don't expect an update from me every week. It may take at least
3 weeks for a second update as I am started to having my examinations
soon. Oh yes, I forget to tell you that I did not use a spell-checker,
hence you may find some funny sentence structures...

Game Basics
=======================================================================
For those who are first time playing Harvest Moon: BTN, before you
jumped onto the walkthrough please read the game basics. You need to
know a lot of basics before you can really get started on the game.

(Throughout the entire FAQ, I would called the main lead as 'Hero' or
'you')

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
[V.1] The Beginning of a New Journey
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
At the beginning, you will need to start to enter your name, your
birthday, your farm's name and dog's name. Just simply enter any names
that you preferred. I supposed it would be better if I warned you about
the "clashing" of the birthdays of the girls who you wished to go
dating with. If you got the same birthday as the girl, the birthdays
of the girl will be changed. Anyway, I will talk more about at the
start of the walkthrough; therefore don't worry about it.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
[V.2] Basic Configuration
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Before I jumped towards the basics about farming in Harvest Moon: BTN, 
I would give you a debrief on the basic controls:

=-~ Basic Configuration ~-=

           0 (During a mini-game)
Select     0 it will activate the town map.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
[V.3] Farming Basics
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Before I begin this section, I assumed that you have briefly understood
the basic configuration/controls of Harvest Moon: BTN and read a bit
from your manual. Make sure that you have fully understood the game's
basic controls:

-[Rucksack]-
In the game, you will find Hero carrying a rucksack on his back. If you
hit the Triangle button, you will be able to view the rucksack screen.
The rucksack allows Hero to carry tools and items. Hero can only carry
an item on hand regardless whether it is a tool or item. While holding
an item, you cannot use a tool. 

(In the game, there are three types of rucksack)
Rucksack - You will start the game with this. You can hold a maximum of
2 tools and 2 items. Please note that I have excluded the items on hand.

Medium Rucksack - You can buy this from the Supermarket for 3000 G. It 
expands the carrying capacity of the rucksack to 4 tools and 4 items.

Large Rucksack - You can buy this from the Supermarket for 5000 G. It
will be applicable after you have bought the Medium Rucksack. It
expands the carrying capacity of the rucksack to 8 tools and 8 items.

To switch tools without using the shortcut key (Triangle button), you
just need to tap R1 to switch between tools and R2 to switch between
items. If you operate the rucksack from the menu, you can switch the
items by using D-Pad, X and Circle button. You can also view the status
of the item that is currently inside the rucksack.

-[Pick Up items]-
Picking up items is the most basic methods of getting items. You do not
need tools and just bare hands will do the trick. Just proceed to the
item that is on the ground and hit the X button to pick it up. Next,
you should have the following possibilities:

[1] Throw the item
You can throw the item away by hit the X button once the item is on
Hero's hand. IMO, knowing about this is very important. It allows you
to deposit items into the bin and throw garbage away. If you throw
'sellable items' onto the ground, they will be destroyed and you can't
recover them. Hence, make sure you aimed it properly! It works while
taking out fodder or chicken feed from the feed sheds inside the barn
or the henhouse.

[2] 'Spring Cleaning' (Dumping of garbage from the farm)
This is a farm-related technique. The items that are involved are 'log',
'stone', 'lumber' and 'weed'. You can find all of them inside the farm.

Log    (It is represented by an orange branch)
Stone  (It is represented by a small stone)
Lumber (It is represented by a vertical wood log)
Weed   (It is represented by a patch of grass)

Log - This item will be damaged if you throw it outside the tilled soil 
(sandy area) of the farm. However, it will still remain intact when
being thrown on the tilled soil. You can't count that as additional to
lumber unless you have chopped it down with an Ax.

Stone - This item will be damaged if you throw it outside the tilled
soil of the farm. However, it will remain intact on the tilled soil.
You can only eliminate it using the above method or using the hammer.

Lumber - This item can be gotten from the wood shed found in between
the barn and the stable. It will remain intact if you throw it on the
tilled soil, hence allow you to form a 'fence' when multiple lumbers
are being placed adjacent to each other.

Weed - It is just useless grass. It will be removed automatically
when you throw it away from the rucksack. You can also remove it
using the sickle.

[3] To give the item as a gift
With the item on the hands, you just need to hold down D-Pad against
the person and hit X to give to the other person. Some of items, such
as Pink Cat Flower, cannot be sold. But it can be offered as 'gifts'/
'presents' to fellow villagers. BTW, don't bother to offer precious ore
to ladies, as most of them may not like it.

[4] Consumption
If you hit Square button, Hero will consume the item if it is possible.
For example if Hero has an egg on hand, you hit the Square button. You
should see Hero consuming the egg. If the item on hand is a stone, you
will get no options. BTW, don't consume to all items, as some of them
are not edible and poisonous. Examples include the Red Grass.

[5] Keep it inside the Rucksack
I supposed the heading is quite clear. If you hit the R2 button, Hero
will keep the item inside his rucksack if possible. Please note that
the kept item will be brought to last position upon retrieving items.
To retrieve an item, you just need to hit R2 button again or make use
of the rucksack menu.

For more details, PLEASE refer to the V.9 'Menu Explanations' section.

-[Mining Basics]-
In the game (or Mineral Village), you will find two mines to mine. The
mines are pretty hard to locate for a begineer (I only discover the
first one on 7th of spring on my first game-play). Below is a
description of the location.

Mine #1 - behind the 'Goddess Pond' Waterfall.
At the hot spring area, you will find a hot spring along with a stream
and waterfall. You can go behind the hot spring and there is a small
pebble path, which leads to the mine.

Ores found in this mine: Junk Ore; Copper Ore; Silver Ore; Gold Ore and
Mystrile Ore. You can also find a Power berry here upon mining.

Mine #2 - the Winter Mine
This mine CAN ONLY be accessed in the winter. You need to go to the
Mother's Hill where you can find a lake. The lake will be frozen into
ice that you will be able to cross it to reach the mine. The mine
located in the middle of the lake. If you go down 10 levels, you will
be able to find a fishing pond in the underground where you can catch
a legendary fish...

Ores found in this mine: Junk Ore; Mystrile Ore; Orichalcum Ore and
Adamantite Ore. You can also find a Power Berry here upon mining.

Purpose of Mining:
Before I begin, you may need to know something about mining... Mining
is very important as it provides important ores to upgrade your tools.
The ores can be sold for money. The rare ores are intend to make the
OO Makers or the accessory (girl's present). Throughout mining, you
will be able to find useless ore (junk ore - which looks like a pile
of stone to me...) in all mines. They are useless and sold for a cheap
price of 1 gold. BTW, there is also money to be mined in the game! You
will find 'bags of gold' (Hero will pick and keep in his rucksack)
that causes 10G each. You may find manholes, which lead to the next
level of the mine. The general tip is to get as deep as possible, as it
increase the rate of you getting more ores for sale. Mining does not
really earn much but if you have a basket (bought from Supermarket for
5000G) where you can collect a maximum of 38 ores per trip to the mine.

General Tips - (applicable to both mines!)
NOTE: The tool used for mining is the Hoe. The special actions of hoe
have no effect while mining.

As you enter the mine, your objective is to find a manhole that leads
to the next level of the mine. For the first mine, the level is endless!
Dig five times at different spots: the northeast spot, northwest spot,
southeast spot, the middle spot and southwest spot. If you get junk ore,
throw it away and start to dig in a row until you find the manhole. If
you find a 'bag of gold', there is a high possibility that the manhole
is somewhere nearby. Once you have located the manhole, use D-Pad to
move towards it. You will get a message prompted whether to go down the
manhole pick 'Yes'.

To exit the mine from this point onwards, all you need to do is proceed
to the ladder and answer 'yes' on the prompt. Anyway, I got another
mining tip...

Let's say if the ladder is located on the left, you can find the next
manhole somewhere on right hand side of the mine. The manhole is 
*normally* located on the opposite side of the ladder. Your objective
to locate a manhole ASAP for the first 5 levels and start to dig
intensively from the 6th level onwards. BTW, the location of the
manholes are at random. Use 'money bags' as a source to get rare ores
or manholes. The extreme ends of the mines contains no ore at all! BTW,
you just need to dig once per patch of land.

Stamina Indicator...
Please note: If your stamina starts to fade off to the extreme that
Hero pants and sat on the ground (his eyes will turn 'dark'), exit the
mine and proceed to the hot spring for a hour. It is crucially important
as to prevent sickness. It will be good to adopt a habit of visiting the
hot spring after every mining session when you have less than 6 power
berries. Best still, get a medicine from the Doctor and bring it along
with you to the mine. But I would prefer the first alternative as it is
free!

Shipping Basket Woes...
NOTE 2: If you bring the shipping basket to the mine, it is very
important that you bring it along with you when you go down to the next
manhole. If you left it at the mine there, you need to restart from the
entrance and dig until the level of the mine where you have left the
basket. Unfortunately in the game, it does not allow you to select the
desired level to mine. Even if you fainted, you will still be able to
find the shipping basket at the level where you have left it previously.
Be caution. If it happens that the basket was just being placed over the
manhole. Don't not move to close to the manhole and hit X to pick it.
If Hero is close enough, there isn't a need to use D-Pad to move
forward. When you see a prompt, pick 'No' if you haven't pick the
basket.

[Cost per item in mine]
Junk Ore          1G
Copper Ore        15G
Silver Ore        20G
Gold Ore          25G
Mystrile Ore      30G
Orichalcum Ore    50G
Adamantite Ore    50G

-[Fishing Basics]-
You can't start fishing at the start of the game... You need to get a
fishing rod (make sure you have an empty slot under equip section).
To get this equipment, you must go to the docks during 7am to 10am or
7pm to 10pm on either Friday, Saturday or Sunday. You will be able to
meet Greg the fisherman. Talk to him and pick that you like fishing.
To fish, just simply equip the fishing rod on hand and hit Square on a
water filled area. After the cast has reached the water, do not release
the Square button. Hold down the button and wait for it to vibrate.
Once it starts to vibrate, release the square button. You will catch
a fish/ hooked up a garbage item or nothing! There are several places
where you can fish. I will elaborate more about them later.

You can breed fishes. [i.e. make a small fish to grow to large fish and
giving a new small fish when the existing small fish reaches the adult
stage]. To do this, you need to catch some fish (refer to the steps
that are mentioned in the paragraph above) and deposit them into the
fish pond. Next you need to get fish food through purchase only from
the Supermarket for 50G. You just need to deposit one fish food inside
the fish pond everyday. (The quantity of fishes in the pond does not
have any impact) You can only have 99 fishes in the fish pond. If you
have more than 50 fishes, you will see Greg visiting your pond and give
you a better fishing equipment. (You need to have an empty slot in the
equip portion before exiting the house in order to get the equipment)
The fishing pole is a better equipment compared to fishing rod. It is
not necessary that you need to use the fishing pole in order to catch
legendary fish. But some of legendary fishes requires a fishing pole.

There are several places where you can catch fish. They are the sea,
the lake, the waterfall, winter mine's pond and river streams. Weird
fishing spots include the hot-pot during Harvest Festival in Fall and
the fishing pond ^_^;) You can only catch large fish from the ocean.
The lake is fairly clean as being compared to other spots. The sea is
very dirty and you will get garbage most of time. But there is a tip,
which I myself also got from the library besides a fellow FAQ writer:

The books says something like the sentence below:
"The fish population in the sea has decreased greatly due to the
 dumping of trash into the rivers and sea" (a.k.a water population)

You can 'increase' the fish population (easier to catch fish from the
ocean) by depositing the garbage into the trash bin found in the Rose
Square OR...

Get the basket (bought from Supermarket for 5000G) to the harbor. Place
the basket behind Hero. As you get a garbage item (e.g. fish bone,
trash can and boot), just aim and throw in the basket. You will find
the basket shakes a bit but there is no crops for sale! For my case, it
did helps to improve my chances of catching fish during winter.

[Cost per fish]          [Unsellable Items]
Small Fish     100G      Unused Can
Medium Fish    200G      Boots
Large Fish*    300G      Fish Bone

* You can only catches large fish in the sea/ocean. You can't sell
  legendary fishes for money. After they are caught, you will find Hero
  releasing them. But you will find 'a mark/icon' placed in the menu as
  proof that you have caught the legendary fish.

-[Advanced Shipping Equipment: The Basket and Horse's Saddle Bag]-
There are two sets of equipment. They are the basket (bought from
Supermarket for 5000G) and the saddle (obtain when you are allowed to
keep the horse).

[The Basket]
This is perhaps the best tool that you need to ship your produce. The
basket can contain a maximum of 30 crops. [The term 'crop' here refers
to produce like herbs; mountain forage items such as mushrooms, ore
and diary products (wool, milk and eggs)] The basket is pretty useful
item and it is indispensable. The basket cannot be damaged by weather
hazards even if you left the item outside of the house. The basket
cannot be stolen by fellow villager. Even if you leave in a part of the
mine, you will still be able to retrieve by returning back to the mine.

To deposit an item (which cannot be taken out afterwards), just simply
position Hero in front of the basket (i.e. facing it) and hit X to
deposit the item on hand. If you drop a 31st item, it will be as good
as lost. To know how much the basket contain, make use of the Equip
menu to read. Hit Triangle button and move the cursor to the basket.
BTW, I would like to remind you that you can't take out items that you
have deposit. But depositing in the basket doesn't mean that it has
'been shipped'. (In the game, the produce is considered only shipped
when you have deposit it in the bin). Hence take the basket facing the
bin and hit Square. You will see an animation of Hero tilting the
basket. There will be no lost of items if you hit Square without making
contact with the bin. Normally, I would use the basket to collect eggs
from my chickens, barn animals, etc.

[Saddle]
What is the point of taking care of the pony that you have gotten
Saibara. There are typically three reasons and they are:
1) Every hearts the horse has gained, it accounts for 1% for your farm.
2) The horse allows you to participate in the Local Horse Race.
3) The horse is a good shipping help in the farm.

You need to take good care of your horse for 1 year with a minimum of
eight hearts. You can build up the horse's hearts by talking and
brushing (with the brush bought from Saibara for 800G). Having it being
placed outside, helps to increase the hearts faster. After the year, you
can get the horse if it has 8 eight hearts or more. If it doesn't, you
need to plant another 30 patches of grass, so that Barley will give you
a second pony. While the horse is at its pony stage, it is very hard to
handle it. Bare with it for the 4 hearts. Upon the 5th heart, you can
make use of whistle [hit R2] to call for your pony.

With the horse, it helps you to move around your farm a lot more
quicker. You can ride on it around the farm faster than you are running.
You can deposit unwanted items such branches, stones, weeds, flowers and
even crops into the saddle. If you deposit a produce, it will be
accounted as being deposit in the bin. The horse is a good transport
tool but it is very hard to make the horse stay put at one place...

-[Giving Gifts and Making Friends]-
Gifts are typically any item that you can find the game. You can give
weed, branches, lumber and even ores to villagers, although the basic
reason is that they will not like it. If you give an average item to
Manna of Aja Winery, she will give you some tips on making friends. As
for the invidual's likes list, please refer to the town guide for more
details.

[V.4] The Five Basic Farming Tools
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
At the start of the game, you will find a Hammer, a Watering Can, an
Ax, a Hoe and a Sickle inside the toolbox. If you hit the start button
to activate the status menu, you will find the status of these tools.
The status screen is very important as it means whether you can perform
an upgrade on the tool.

The status screen should something similar to the one that is found
below:

=-~ Figure V.1.2a: Status Screen of Tools ~-=
                                            (Legend)
(Icon of Tool)    |||||||||||||||||||||||   [C] (Copper Ore)
                  [C][S][G][M]        [%]   [S] (Silver Ore)
                                            [G] (Gold Ore)
                                            [M] (Mystrile Ore)

The "|||" sign represents the experience bar. You will find the bars'
color changes as you upgrade your tool. To see whether the tool is
applicable for an upgrade, check out the type of 'ores' available.

The percentage of the meter is another way of reading the meter. Below 
are some interesting statistics for you to know:

001% to 099%   (Default Tool)                [N/A]
100% to 199%   (Copper version of tool)      [1000G]
200% to 299%   (Silver version of tool)      [2000G]
300% to 399%   (Gold version of tool)        [3000G]
400%           (Mystrile version of tool)    [5000G]

It is not necessary to upgrade from a copper model to a silver model,
along the metallic range. Instead, a model's meter ratings and the
number of available 'ore' icons that the tool has gained are the
criteria for the upgrade. For example, it is possible to upgrade a
default Hoe to Mystrile Hoe directly provided you have gained 400% on
the meter. The fees will not be accumulated by the way.

How to upgrade?
You need to go to a mine to obtain a certain ore that is required for
the upgrade. There are two mines in the game. You can get more details
regarding the location of the mines in the next section or the
walkthrough. Next you need to bring that ore; equipped the tool on hand
(that's the separated box of rucksack screen) and proceed to the
Blacksmith to perform an upgrade. Of course, you must have sufficient
cash on hand. I have placed an asterisk mark next the minimum
requirements for you to survive in the game. The more asterisks that
the model has, the more important that you need to get them. To build
up the meter, you need to use the items frequently.

Below is the 'Effects Chart' of each tool:

           ** (Mystrile) [Chop logs; 1 hits to a tree stump]    [5000G]

To perform the effect, you need to hold down the Square button while
the tool is being equipped. The longer you hold, the more powerful the
effect will be. BTW, tools with higher upgrades can do those in the
lower levels.

(Facial expressions on using tools)
How do you know when you are executing the effect? As mentioned earlier
to execute an effect, you need to hold down the Square button. The
longer you hold, the higher level of effect you will execute. BTW, a
higher level tool can perform effects of it with a lower level tool.
For example with a Silver Ax, you can perform the normal cut, copper
level cut and the silver level cut. With the Mystrile Ax, you can
perform the normal cut, copper level cut, silver level cut, gold level
cut and the Mystrile level cut!

Copper Level - Held onto the tool for a while
Silver Level - held onto the tool for a longer period
Gold Level - the face turns red
Mystrile level - the face turns red and stressing mark on the head...

For example, it will take many hits to break a large stone with a
Bronze Hammer. However if you use the 'special' hit [hold down Square
button], you can eliminate the large stone in 3 hits. It does not only
save time but also Hero's stamina.

HAMMER
IMO, the hammer is the least important but not a useless tool. You can
make use of it to remove stones and rocks from the farm, which
indirectly helps to facilitate movement in the farm. You can also use
it to destroyed broken 'lumber-type fences'. Lumber will be greatly
weakened when it is being exposed to rain for a long time. To remove
them, you need to use the hammer. The hammer also allows removing of
tilled soils. BTW, do not use this on cows, horse and sheep.

WATERING CAN
This is the most important tool after the hoe. Without the Watering
Can, you can't water your plants and harvest fruits/produce from it.
The Watering Can has a capacity of 100 shots. You need to go near a
river/water source and hit Square to refill the Watering Can. IMO, you
need only a Gold Watering Can. Upgrading the Watering Can during winter
is pretty a good choice as you do not need to water any plants until
you have gotten a hothouse. When you are quite close to your house,
make use of the pond to refill your watering can.

HOE
This is the most important tool for it allows you to till the soil for
planting but it can be used in the mines. The special feature can't be
used in the mine unfortunately. BTW, I will recommend that you should
avoid upgrading your Hoe during a Winter season as you need it for
mining. Just hit the Square button to till a patch of soil.

SICKLE
This is used to remove weeds or garbage from your farm. The Sickle is
also used to get fodder from grass. You will see that grass fields get
a bit darker and you can swipe off the grass for fodder. Fodder is
essential for cows and sheep. The Sickle removes plants too! Hence,
avoid using it while you are between weeds and fields. 

AX
The Ax is extremely important as it allows you to get lumber from tree
stumps. You need to have lumber in order to upgrade your building. You
need to make use of the "special action" by holding down the Square
button. If you do not, you will take ages to hack down a tree...

[V.5] Special Tools from the Blacksmith
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
These additional tools can only be bought from the Blacksmith's house
for a pretty huge sum of money... You can get the following tools from
the blacksmith if you have met the following requirements. Below you
can also find a short breakdown of each every tool.
 
BRUSH                                                              800G
[Requirements]- You must get the horse (pony) from Barley.
The brush allows you to brush any livestock that includes cow, sheep
& the horse. Brushing them regularly makes the livestock happy as they
loves it. Making your livestock happy is important, as it prevents them
from falling ill easily. It also improves the quality of products that
you can get from the animals.

MILKER                                                            2000G
[Requirements]- You must get the horse (pony) from Barley
You need to use this tool to milk cows and get milk from them. Just
simply move your character near the cow and hit Square button to milk
the cow. If you do it successfully, you will get a bottle of Milk. BTW,
you cannot get milk from a young cow but only from an adult cow.

CLIPPERS                                                          1800G
[Requirements]- You must get the horse (pony) from Barley)
The clippers are actually a pair of scissors. You need to use this get
wool from your sheep. Just move your character against the sheep and
hit Square button. If it is done successfully, you will find a ball of
wool appearing on top of the character's hands. BTW, wool takes a long
time to re-grow compared to cows. You need to feed the sheep with
fodder.

[V.6] The 00 Makers
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
In Harvest Moon: Back To Nature, you will get these makers from Saibara
the Blacksmith after you have upgrade your henhouse and barn. These
machines may cost a lot but they are considered a worthy investment. To
get the Adamantite Ore, you need to get it from the Winter mine during
winter (that mine is located in the middle of the frozen lake). Talk to
Saibara without holding the ore, otherwise you will be given it to him!
If you don't have sufficient cash during winter, store at least 5 of
them inside your cupboard that comes with the kitchen upgrade.

MAYONNAISE MAKER                                20000G + Adamantine Ore
[Requirements]- You need to get the kitchen upgrade for your house
before you can 'create' this from the blacksmith. Just talk to the
blacksmith and you will be given the option to make it. It takes five
days to be manufactured

It allows you to make mayonnaise. The mayonnaise maker is found inside
the hen house. To make mayonnaise, you need to take an egg and dump it
inside the maker as you do for the bin. You will get a mayonnaise,
which sells for a higher price. The mayonnaise maker requires an ore,
which can only be obtained from the mine found in the huge lake in
Mother's Hill during winter. Hence, make sure that you have stored some
of this ore inside the cabinet.

CHEESE MAKER                                    20000G + Adamantine Ore
[Requirements]- You need get the kitchen upgrade; the barn upgrade and
you must have at least 1 cow to make this. You need to make the
Mayonnaise Maker before you can make this. It takes five days to be
manufactured.

It allows you to make cheese. The cheese maker is found inside the
barn. To make cheese, you need to have milk. Just simply take a bottle
of milk and dump it inside the maker. You will get cheese as the
product. Please refer to the Mayonnaise Maker on how to get Adamantine
Ore.

YARD BALL MAKER                                 20000G + Adamantine Ore
[Requirements]- You need get the kitchen upgrade; the barn upgrade and
you must have at least 1 sheep to make this. You need to make the
Cheese Maker before you can make this. It takes five days to be
manufactured

It allows you to make yard balls. The yard ball maker is found inside
the barn. To make a yard ball, you need to dump a ball of wool inside
the maker. Please refer to the Mayonnaise Maker for the acquisition of
the Adamantine Ore.

I supposed that I am finally done with the tools... It is time to
proceed onto the crops.

[V.7] The Crops Guide
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Crops are most important stuffs that you need to know about farming.
To plant crops, make sure that you have seeds, which can be bought from
seller, Won or the Supermarket. Seeds packets contained nine seeds and
you need to make use of the hoe and watering can to grow crops.

[Utilize the usage of growing land]
(Make sure you read about the tool, Hoe under "The Five Basic Farming
Tools" option)

Before you get a gold watering can, you need to soil the land in this
format:

[X] [X] [X]
[X] [_] [X] (where [X] is the tilled soil)
[X] [X] [X] (where [_] is the un-tilled soil)

At first I thought that this method is perhaps the best before you
managed to upgrade your Watering Can to silver, but I found out a
better method:

[X] [_] [X]    [X][X][X]    [X][X][X]    [X][X][X]
[X] [X] [X] or [X][X][ ] or [X][X][X] or [_][X][X]
[X] [X] [X]    [X][X][X]    [X][_][X]    [X][X][X]

By doing this, you can also water all crops even without a silver
watering can and avoid the problems faced when a weed popped out in
the middle of the crops ^_^;)

It is because the packet had nine seeds and this format is the best
format for planting crops if you want to have the maximum harvest.
However after you have gotten a Silver or Gold Watering Can, you can
make use of the format below:

It applies to plants that grows only once if not, you need to seek the
aid of the Harvest Sprites to collect the crop that is found in the
middle. (It also applies to watering too!)

[X] [X] [X]                     [::][::][::]
[X] [X] [X]  -->                [::][::][::]
[X] [X] [X]   (seeds scattered) [::][::][::]

Where you scatter your seeds, place the seed packet in the Equip area.
Now, you need to move towards the center of the 3x3 area and scatter
the seeds over the area. The patch will look the one on the right.

If you scattered a summer type seed (e.g. pineapple) during spring time,
you will the above layout but on the next day, the seeds will disappear.
But if you plant summer seeds on the last of spring, the seeds will
remain on the next day (which will be summer!). BTW, it will work if you
have a hothouse, which will entitle you to buy seeds from any season at
any point of time!

(((Additional Notes)))
The next few paragraphs will feature on the detailed crops bestiary. I
spent several days to compile the list and hopefully that you will find
it useful. Before I begin, there are some points that I want you to
take note of:

Once you have gotten the hothouse, you can buy any of seeds (from the
Supermarket) at any point of time. If you don't have a hothouse, you
are only entitled to buy seeds available for that season.

=-~ Profit Calculation Formula ~-=
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The crops profit margin is being calculated by this formula:

(Number of crops x Selling Price of Each Crop x Number of Sows -
 Cost of the Seeds)

'Number of Sows' is calculated with the formula below:

30 days - Number of days for plant to grow
__________________________________________   + 1
        Number of days to harvest

(It only applies to multiple-growing crops like Cucumbers and
Pineapples)

'Maximum Harvest' is calculated by:
   (30 days - Growth period ) / Growth Period

Assumptions made by me:
The seeds are being planted on the tilled land on the 1st day of each
season. The maximum harvest indicates that you re-use that same patch
of field for its existing crops. (i.e. if you grown and harvested the
patch of carrots, you re-plant them on the same time)
All the numeric digits will be rounded down. For example if the
calculated 'number of sows' is equal to 6.5, I would record it as 6.

I will replace 'Number of Sows' with 1 if the crop's type is single. 
(I.e. you can only harvest once) I have also included the color of the
seeds packaging for your information. Certain seeds like strawberries
are only available for sale if you have met a requirement.

Type [A] formula will be applicable if you have grown 8 crops on the
9x9 field and Type [B] formula will be applicable if you have grown 9
crops on the 9x9 field.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The 'Color' indicates the color of the seed package. Each seed package
contains 9 seeds. The [cost] is the cost of each packet not the seeds.
If you find 'requirements' under that plant data, you must meet that
requirement in order to purchase the seeds.

(Please refer to the crops bestiary for more details.)

Below is a detailed list of seeds that you can buy from the village:

=-~ Flowers Guide ~-=
You can ONLY buy flower seeds from Won, the Chinese merchant at Doug's
Place from 1pm to 3pm. Flowers seems to be a bit important for those
who are having Elli as your wife... Besides you managed to plant over
90 flowers in a season, you will get a Power Berry from Anna in the
afternoon.

Tips on Flowers:

Flowers can help you to restore fatigue! But first of all you need to
get a vase from Won [for 5000G]. Next put a flower for that appropriate
season in the vase. You will recover your health, as you are drinking
Bodigizer every night! But if you put a flower for any season, the
flower will wither and gone on the next day.

Most of villagers love flowers! The acceptations are Saibara, Gray, Zack,
Greg, Doug and Duke. Hence, use them as your gifts to please the
villagers as they are free! (you can pick them from Mother's Hill)

In Fall, when you plant Magic-Red Flowers, you will find occasionally
within the patch you can find one or two Red Magic-Red Flowers. The
red version of Magic-Red Flowers (normally, you can only find blue
colored ones at Mother's Hill or the area at Gotz's place during fall)
can be sold for 200G each! But they are pretty hard to get as the ratio
of getting 1 red Magic-red flower in a patch is around 1 : 27. (You 
will get only 1 red Magic-Red flower for every 3 patches)

[V.8] The Town
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
The setting of game takes place at the Mineral Village. First of all,
you will be meeting with the mayor of the village, Thomas. He will say
that the village will give you 3 years and decided where you can stay
in the village depends on your management of the farm. At the start of
the game, he will tell you whether you want to go for a short trip
around the village. If you do so, it seems that you get along with the
people there much better.

(To save some misery space...)

There are thirteen spots of attractions in Mineral Village. Now I got
into the individual breakdown of each attraction...
(G stands for Gold and L stands for Lumber)

[1]=-~ The Farm ~-=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Spot on the Map: [1]
Before I take you a short 'tour' around Mineral Village, I would say
some stuff about the farm. The farm is currently in a huge mess but I
can assure that under your diligence and tender care, the farm will be
back in the shape. The farm comprises of the following main buildings:

-[House]-
You can save your game here. You will get four options if you examine
the diary near the bed. You will get the following options: (In the
game, diary entries are known as "saving")

. Sleep without diary entry - typically allows your characters to sleep
. Sleep with diary entry - sleeps and allows you to save
. Read Diary - allows you to load another saved file
. Exchange Animals - allows you to exchange animals before saved files.

- The TV Programs -
Below is the schedule of programs being telecasted on the television:
[Up]    Weather Forecast*
[Right] News*
[Left]  The Fairy and Me (Mondays)
        The Delicious Hour (Tuesdays)*
        The Song Hour (Wednesdays)
        Star One Sports (Thursdays)
        Mechabot Ultror (Fridays)
        TV Shopping (Saturdays)*
        Shogi Hour (Sundays)
Notes: For the first week of the game, you will be able to view the
       "New Year Day Special TV" instead of the shows above.
[Down]  Life on the Farm*

Whenever you switch on the TV (just go in front of it and hit the X
button) and you will be to view the shows. If you hit X after the
message box is gone, you will view the Weather Forecast directly.
Those programs that are marked in asterisks are very important and
make sure you watch them everyday. Please refer to the TV Guide for
more details. The Life on the Farm typically gives you a briefing of
certain tips like upgrading and some of the game's secrets too.

After you have bought all the items from TV Shopping Network, you will
get to see a new show called "What's your Passion?". During weather
hazards such as blizzards and snowstorms, the TV will NOT work. BTW,
you will find TV not working after 12am.

---- Basic Form ----
(Default layout)
Cost to Upgrade:
N/A
Condition:
You start the game with the house in this setting.
Features:
This is located in the top left hand-corner of the farm. You can find a
TV set (view it regularly to check for the weather forecast and the TV
Shopping Network for buying utensils for your kitchen), a Toolbox (You
can store your farming tools, seeds and key items.), a bed (You can
save your game by examining the diary). 
The Toolbox is represented with a huge treasure chest found in the
corner of the room. Just hit X button when you are near the chest and 
you will be able to retrieve the items to your rucksack. For more
details on rucksack, please read the "Rucksack" for more details.

---- First Extension ---- [Kitchen Upgrade]
(With the kitchen)
Cost to Upgrade:
You need 4,700 G and 370 L
Conditions:
You must have upgraded your hen house before you choose to upgrade your
house with a kitchen. To upgrade a building, go to Gotz's (the
woodcutter) house and talk to Gotz.
Features:
This setting is typically an enlarged version of house. You will get
2 additional pieces of storing equipments: Icebox and Cabinet. The
Icebox allows you to store food and sellable items (it also includes
poisonous items!). The Icebox is represented with a refrigerator. The
Cabinet is an additional piece of immobile equipment, which is
represented by a cupboard near the fridge. You can store your ores
there when you want to perform upgrades for your tools. For more
details regarding tools, please read the 'Tools' section.

---- Second Extension ---- [Bedroom Upgrade]
(With an additional bedroom)
Cost Upgrade:
You will need 10,000 G and 750 L
Conditions:
You must have upgraded the hen house, the kitchen and the barn in order
for you perform this upgrade. The method to upgrade is the same for
performing the first upgrade.
Features:
It typically features an additional room, which required for you to get
in order to marry with your loved one. After you have bought the second
upgrade, you will have a cut-scene with Won, offering you to buy a vase
for 5000G. The vase allows you to put flower to regenerate fatigue
faster than normal!

-[Dog House]-
This doghouse belongs to the dog. Unfortunately, the dog can't stay
inside the doghouse. You can find a Bin and an Apple tree near the main
house. If you want to get shelter for your dog, make sure you bring it
inside the house. If you allow the dog to run over the fields, you can
increase the dog's affection. To win the Winter Dog Race, make sure you
practice regularly with the Ball, which can bought from Won for 100G
during Autumn or early Winter. During fall, you can forage for 3
Apples from the Apple Tree. If you plant Pink Cat Flower in summer and
take a sample of the honey to Louis, you can forage for honey every
season!

-[Pond]-
The pond supports your fishes and fish food. You need to get a fishing
rod in order to catch fishes. You can buy the fish food from the
supermarket in the town. For more details on fishing, please refer to
"Fishing" for more details. To get your fishing rod, you need to visit
the Mineral Beach from 7 am and 10 am and you will meet an old man.
Make sure that you have additional slot in your rucksack so that you
can get the rod. He will only be there during Fridays, Saturdays and
Sundays. If you caught 50 fishes (or by breeding them), you will have
a cut-scene with Greg giving you a fishing pole. The fish food is need
to be used once and it is meant for breeding. Even if you don't feed
the fish, the fish won't die.

-[Hen House]-
You can find your chickens and chicken feed in this shed. You can also
find another bin inside the henhouse. You can collect your chicken feed
from the orange Spout inside the building. Just simply position Hero in
front of the box and hit (X). Next you can deposit the feed onto the
feed shed. You need to do this regularly if you want your hens to lay
eggs. There is an incubator inside the hen house. Just place an egg
there and wait for around 5 days for the egg to hatch. You can perform
an upgrade of the hen house by seeking the woodcutter's aid after you
have gotten sufficient lumber. You can also deposit other produce
inside the Bin. Once you have gotten the upgrade, you will be entitled
to ask Saibara to make the Mayonnaise Maker, which costs 20000G and a
Adamantite Ore. To make a mayonnaise, you just need to deposit an egg
into the mayonnaise maker.

(Extension) - [Henhouse Upgrade]
You will get 5 additional feed sheds and an incubator for the
extension. The extension of the henhouse costs 5,000 G and 420 L. You
can buy the chicken feed from the Poultry Farm for 10 G per feed. If
you grow corn in the summer, you can throw the corn at the windmill to
get 10x chicken feeds.

-[Stable]-
It is a mini-stable where you can find your horse. In this game, you do
not need to feed the horse but you need to talk to it, whistle to it
and brush it with a brush. The brush can be brought from the
Blacksmith's house for 800G. You will want to improve the affection
with the horse, I would recommend to let it stay outdoors when the 
weather is fine. You can get the horse free of charge on a fine day
from Yodel Farm in the first year of spring. But you need to take care
of it, or the owner, Barley will take the horse back. Please refer to
the game-play tips for more details. Once the horse has fully grown,
you can use it to participate in the Local Horse Race during Spring.

-[Barn]-
Under this barn, you will find your herds of cows and sheep. The barn
can support a maximum of 10 livestock. You can find a similar orange
box, which will give you "fodder", which is food for the livestock.
Like the chickens, make sure you give them fodder regularly. Otherwise,
you will experience no production from the cows and sheep. There is
also a bin for deposit. You can buy your cows and sheep from Yodel
Farm in the village. BTW, they are pretty expensive. If you want to
get the produce from them, make sure you purchase the milker [2000 G]
and Clipper [1800 G] from the Blacksmith in the village. BTW, the
sheep and cows loved to be brushed. Make sure that you have talked to
them everyday to build up the affection. You can also get fodder from
Barley in Yodel Farm for 20 G each or you can choose to grow grass for
fodder. For details regarding fodder, please refer to "Farming Basics"
for more details. Once you got the barn upgrade, you will be entitled
to make the Cheese Maker after you have gotten the Mayonnaise Maker.
It costs 20000G and requires an Adamantite Ore. BTW after you have
upgraded the Cheese Maker, you will get to make a Yard Ball Maker for
the same cost and ore.

(Extension) [Barn Upgrade]
You will get extra 10 spaces for additional livestock. You will also
get an additional feed box. You need to pay 6800 G and 500 L. You can
only do this after you have performed the first upgrade for the house.

-[Hot House]-
This is the last upgrade that you need to get for your farm. You can
build the hothouse once you have gotten the second upgrade for your
house. The hothouse is like the greenhouse. You can find a bin and a 
water tank inside the house. The house has only a maximum area of
7 x 7 and that could only limit you to plant only 4 types of crops
within the hot house. Another disadvantage of the hot house is that you
still need to water the crops there even if it is a rainy day. You need
to pay 30,000G and 580 L! The hothouse is breakable and easily damaged
by weather hazards, hence take note! Weeds will not grow inside the hot
house!

[2]=-~ Hot Spring Area ~-=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
In this area, you will find a hot spring area where you can rest Hero
to restore his fatigue. You need to stay there for just around a hour.
You just need to enter the hot spring and do not hit X button until a
hour has passed.

Behind the spring is a small waterfall. The mine is located behind the
waterfall. You can mine there with your hoe and basket for ore to
upgrade your tools. For more details regarding mining, please refer to
"Game-play Tips".

If you observed carefully the rocks that surround the hot spring, you
will notice that one of the areas is flat. You can step on it and
throw an egg to get spa-boiled eggs... Spa-boiled eggs sells for a
higher price compared to normal eggs. [80G each]

BTW, the items that you can find within this area are:
- Spring -   (3x Bamboo Shoots; 1x Blue Herb)
- Summer -   (1x Red Herb)
- Autumn -   (1x Green Herb; 1x Mushroom)
- Winter -   (Nothing!)

Occasionally, you can find a monkey or a squirrel there.

[3]=-~ Mother's Hill ~-=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
The Mother's Hill is a huge area where you can find numerous trees-
stumps and items. Autumn is a good time to visit here. The Mother's
Hill comprises of three main areas.

1st Area: 
You will find a huge waterfall and a tree stump. There is a path
leading towards right, which is blocked off from the lake by the trees.
You will find a bridge, which leads to the next area. During winter,
the lake will freeze up and you will be able to gain access to the
island that is located in the middle of the lake. Inside that mine,
you can find a lot of Mystriles, Orichalcum and Adamantite, which are
rare and they fetch quite a good price when you have the basket! BTW,
you can easily catch fish there as compared to rivers, the waterfall
and even the ocean.

BTW, the items that you can find within this area are:
- Spring -  (Nothing!)
- Summer -  (Nothing!)
- Autumn -  (2x Wild Grapes; 1x Truffle; 1x Mushroom)
- Winter -  (Nothing!)

The Truffle looks like a mushroom except that it has a darker cap and a
longer stem. It is located behind the two trees that are standing close
to each other. You need walk up the path, which leads to the stone
ledge in order to retrieve it. The Mushroom is located on the stone
ledge after you have crossed the wooden bridge. Occasionally, you can
find a fox within this area. You can catch small and medium fish from
the lake.

2nd Area:
You will find a winding path that curves upwards and that leads to the
peak of Mother's Hill. Observe carefully and you will find a 'split' on
the path which leads the area where you can find numerous flowers!
(It is really GOOD for those who intend to woo Elli or Popuri!)
Occasionally, you can find bugs like grasshoppers, beetles, cicadas,
crickets, ladybirds, Atlas beetle and Stag beetle.
(PS: They are pretty small and it is very hard to spot them.)

- Spring - (13x Moon Drop Flower; 2x Toy Flower)
- Summer - (15x Pink Cat Flower)
- Autumn - (15x Magic Red Flower)
- Winter - (Nothing!

3rd Area:
It is the peak of the Mother's Hill. If you go here during certain
Season festivals, you will have several cut-scenes. It is just a plain
area... 

[4]=-~ Gotz The Woodcutter Area ~-=
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
In this area, you will find Gotz's house. Staying inside the house, you
will find Gotz (of course!) and Louis. Near the house, you can find 4
tree stumps and some flowers within the area. Behind the house, you
will find many fallen tree trunk.

- Spring - 2x Moon Drop Flower; 1x Blue Herb
- Summer - 2x Pink Cat Flower; 1x Red Herb
- Autumn - 2x Magic Red Flower; 2x Mushroom; 1x Green Herb;
           1x Poisonous Mushroom
- Winter - Nothing!

If you have plant the Pink Cat Flower (the flower seeds can be bought
from Won), you will lure bees to make a beehive near your apple tree.
Take the honey from the tree. It works like foraging except you just
need to stand near the tree and hit X button. Go and collect a
bottle of honey. Bring the honey to Louis. The next day, you will get
a cut-scene with Louis and your honey's price will raise from 50G to
60G

Gotz:
He has a thick beard, wears a white t-shirt along with blue pants. He
is hard working fellow in my opinion. He loves his job and would go up
to the Mother's Hills even during Winter.

Talk to him and you will get the following options:
[Operating Hours: 11 am to 5 pm; Closed on Sundays]

Moon: BTN. The Blacksmith Shop owned by the old blacksmith, Saibara and

He is an old fellow who is an expert in remodeling your tools with
the ore that you have mine in the game. Saibara often visits festivals
and takes a long time in upgrade your tools, making accessories and
certain makers such as Mayonnaise Maker, Cheese Maker and Yard Ball

It is rather complex in the beginning but you will get used to it.

To upgrade a tool, you must earn the required experience points before
you can perform an upgrade. The experience points chart is the one that
is shown below:

Class       Ore Color     Experience   Amount of Days     Cost
Copper     (Copper)      [100%]        [3]               (1000G)

NOTE: It is not necessary to go from the levels. Once you have reached
the required experience points, you can upgrade it automatically.
Just simply equip your ore and tool to be upgraded on the hand. Talk
to Saibara and you will given the following three prompts:

Level up tool
Give the ore as gift
Nothing

While making Mayonnaise Maker, Cheese Maker, Yard Ball Maker and any
accessory, there isn't any need to equipped the ore on the hand. Make
sure that you put the ore in rucksack or it WILL be considered that you
are giving the ore to Saibara as a gift.

During the days where he is performing the upgrade, you WILL NOT be
entitled to enter the shop. You can STILL enter the shop on certain
festivals when the tool/accessory ready for collection. When
collecting a tool, make sure you have an additional slot in Equip
column. When collecting an accessory, make sure that you are not
holding anything on your hand.

Supermarket (Operating Hours: 9am to 6pm, closed on Tues and Sundays)
The Supermarket is a shopper's paradise in Harvest Moon: BTN. You can
find several items that be bought here along with Jeff, Sasha and

I supposed that is enough for the shopping list otherwise I would
forget about the people living there...

In this area, you will find a church, a graveyard (where you can find
graves of the previous mayors) and a small hut at the backyard of the
church. I don't know a lot of people has gotten the problem in finding
the harvest sprites' hut. Anyway, below is a simple ASCII map to help
those who got problems in finding the house:

I myself is pretty surprised that I could have so much to say about
this part of the village. The sea is being infested with garbage but
contains large fish. IMO, it would be better to get a basket [bought
for 5000G from the Supermarket] along with you while fishing. You can
deposit the trash and fish into the bin at the same time. Anyway, the
seaside is pretty quiet for most of times.

Greg is the fisherman in the village. He seems somewhat associated
with Zack the delivery man. He seldom appears on the streets and even
festivals. You can only find him at the docks from 7am to 10am and
7pm to 10pm during Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. He has dark skin
and white hair. He always carries a straw hat on his back.

[V.9] Menu Explanations
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Currently, I am still working towards on getting 100% for my farm. I
have found out by doing the following it helps to increase the
percentage (it may be wrong, hence please correct me if you know it):

- Get 10 hearts for your dog, horse, wife and child. (40%)
- Get 10 cows (1% for each cow) (10%)
- Get 10 sheep (1% for each sheep) (10%)
- Get 10 hearts for every harvest sprites
- Catch all the six legendary fishes (10%)*
- Sell more than 100 for every produce under your Produce sheet
- Upgrade all your tools to the Mystrile Level. (5%)*
- Have all house upgrades (henhouse upgrade, house upgrade 1, barn
  upgrade, house upgrade 2 and the hothouse) (5%)*
- Uncover more than 60 recipes (1% for every 10 recipe) (5%)*
- Make friends with everyone in the village. (15%)*

Those marked with '*' are assumptions made by me, i.e. they are not
confirmed yet.

To activate the main menu besides the equip menu (which I will discuss
in further details later), just hit the START button on your PSX
controller:

~- Main Menu -~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
IMO, the main menu is very easy to navigate and interactive as the
creators of the game has made use of icons of their characters to
illustrate the menu. (It would be boring to see only words right?)

Now I will go into a step further on how to get the icon marks for the
Menu (it may take a while...):

=-~ *** (Power Berries) ~-=
In the game, your character (or I would call 'Hero') will have limited
strength and stamina. If he wears out due to exhaustion, he will faint
and be sent to the clinic. To avoid this, you can do the following:

(1) Eat! In spring, you can find Bamboo Shoots and Blue Herbs (great
    restorative items!) near the hot spring

(2) If you have money, go to the Clinic and buy medicine from the
    Doctor.

(3) Stay inside the hot spring for an hour...

To withstand longer, you need to get Power berries. They are berries
that can be found by mining, fishing and questing. Please refer to
the tips section for the list of quests in getting them. But it
doesn't mean with all the power berries, you can work 24hrs a day
without tiring out yourself out. You still need to rest or you
can get the special berry from the Kappa in the lake of Mother's Hill
by dropping 3 cucumbers (you need to grow this yourself during spring).

=-~ [H] Extensions Level and (Lumber) ~-=
At the start of the game, you will begin with 0%. You need to chop
Lumber using your ax on branches (those orange logs) and tree stumps
when your Ax has upgrade to a bronze Ax. For tips on upgrading, please
see 'Farming Tools' for more details. As you accumulate lumber, you
will find the quantity digits next to the lumber increase. You can have
the maximum of 999 lumber. After you have gotten lumber and a lot of
money, you can proceed to the woodcutter's house and look for Gotz.
You will be given options to build the following extensions:

Henhouse Upgrade [Cost: 420 lumber and 5,000G]
Your henhouse can house 10 chickens and has an extra incubator and Feed
Spout. This is the first upgrade and you MUST upgrade your henhouse
first before you can upgrade your house to get a kitchen!

House - Kitchen [Cost: 370 lumber and 4,700G]
With this upgrade, you have a kitchen to cook, a icebox (to store food
and ingredients for cooking) and cupboard for objects. (Such as
jewelry, ores, etc)

Barn Upgrade [Cost: 500 lumber and 6,800G]
The upgraded barn allows you to build the Cheese Makers and Yard Ball
Maker. You will find two feed spouts and 22 feed boxes. Those two
additional feed boxes are pregnancy livestock. You can only the maximum
of 20 livestock.

House - Bedroom [Cost: 750 lumber and 10,000G]
You will get an extra bedroom (for your future wife). You need to get
this upgrade IN ORDER for marriage.

Hothouse [Cost: 580 lumber and 30,000G]
Surprisingly, I wonder how Gotz got glass from those pieces of lumber
that you have given to him for this 'greenhouse'. The greenhouse has
a size of 7x7 field for you to grow crops all year around. Once you
have build the hothouse, every seasonal seeds will be available. [There
are exceptions for seeds bought from Won and those seeds that needs
requirements (e.g. strawberries, refer to Crops Guide for more
details)]

=-~ [R](Recipes) ~-=
Well, here comes the interesting part about Harvest Moon: BTN. You need
to make use of the crops, cooking utensils and seasonings to create a
homemade dish. The dish can also be used for cooking competition and
gifts. The ladies will normally preferred dishes than plain raw crops.
But there is a problem, as you need to stock up crops inside your
Icebox and get utensils (along with seasonings). You need to have the
Kitchen in order to cook along with the utensils. You can buy the
utensils and the seasonings from the Shopping Network every Saturday in
TV. Refer to the Tips or walkthrough for more details.

You can get recipes (in words) from villagers when you make friends
with them but they will not be added to the recipes list. I myself
believe that there are a total of 80 recipes (there are 80 slots for
them) but I have only gotten 60 recipes for my game-play currently.
Refer to the recipe guide for more details. It is found under the
Item bestiary section.

=-~ [Wife] & OOO ~-=
After you are married, you will find your wife's icon under this main
menu. There is a heart indicator on the number of hearts that your
wife has. Each heart accounts for 1% of the farm rating hence take
good care of your wife by giving her presents every day even after you
are married!

=-~ [Kid] ~-=
If you have been giving your wife presents for a season, she will get
pregnant. Make sure you make a trip to the Clinic when she is starting
to show symptoms of vomiting or nauseous. Wait for another two seasons
and the baby will be born. After the baby is born, continue to give
presents to your wife in order to maintain the heart. The baby will be
in its cradle form for 2 seasons. Once it is able to crawl, remember to
give him (it is always a male) presents too and do not neglect your
wife. He loves HOT MILK! As for the doubt whether the kid will grow up,
I myself REALLY DON'T know hence please do not bother me about this.

=-~ [Dog] ~-=
You will find your dog inside your farm along with his doghouse. You
can take your dog outside and showing it to the villagers. Some of them
may not like though. Your dog will be in the puppy stage for 2 seasons.
On the first fall of your game play; the dog will grow to an adult
stage. Next you can buy a dog ball from Won (he will come to your
farm) and use it to train your dog! Be careful, as the dog ball gets
lost easily! Otherwise, you have to wait for Won to sell another one
for you. Carrying it everyday will boost its affection for you but
not preparing it for the dog race. Hence the better method is to use
the dog ball to train your dog. My dog runs last despite having eight
hearts because I did not use the dog ball to train!

=-~ [Horse] ~-=
IMO, the horse is a very important livestock for your farm. You need to
collect it on your first visit to Yodel Farm (not on Mondays). Talk to
it every day and brush it with the brush (800G) bought from Saibara the
Blacksmith. Keep it in an enclosed area and bring it back to the stable
when it rains. The horse is very uncooperative at the beginning [I had
to spend several game hours in moving it back to the stable.] The tip
is to build an enclosed fence in front of the stable and push the horse
while holding down Circle button. After it has gotten 4 hearts, make
use of the whistle (R2) but it would still cause some problems though.
Just BARE it for a year and make sure your horse has obtained at LEAST
EIGHT hearts. At the end of the first year, Barley will visit your
farm and attempt to take the horse back. If the horse doesn't neighs,
you need to grow more than 30 patches of grass for a second horse...
If it does, you will have an adult horse at the end of the first year!
The adult horse allows you to ride on it but not beyond the farms. You
will have no problems in taking care of it. The saddle works movable
bin like the one you find near your house. It is a good asset for the
farm. Hence take care of the horse!

=-~ (Chick) & (C. Feed) ~-=
At the start of the game, you don't have any chickens. You need to get
one from Chicken Lili's (the poultry farm of the village) by buying one
for 1000G. Next you need to feed them regularly with a chicken feed
per chicken. The chicken feed can be obtained in two methods: (1) buy
one at 10G per feed from the poultry farm and (2) throw a corn against
the windmill to get 10 feeds! To get extra chickens without buying one
from the poultry farm, use the incubator found next to the feed spout
(That is also the place where you collect the feeds). Just position
yourself holding an egg facing the incubator and hit X button. Wait for
three days and the egg will hatch. After the eggs are hatched, continue
feed the chickens/chick with chicken feeds. It takes around 6 ~ 7 days
for a chick to grow into an adult hen. If a chicken wins the Chicken
Festival, it will lay golden eggs, which fetch for a higher price! You
will get Golden Wool and Milk if your sheep and cows win their
festivals respectively.

=-~ (Fodder) ~-=
Fodder is actually food for your barn animals. Fodder can be obtained
via two methods: (1) Cut from thick layer of grass or (2) buy from
Saibara for 20G each. Fodder is essentially if you want your cows to
produce milk and maintain the hearts for the barn animals. To get
fodder from grass, you need to make use of your sickle.

=-~ (Cow) ~-=
Similar to the chicken, you need to buy one from Yodel Farm by talking
to Barley. Cows are expensive but their milk can fetch a handy price.
You need to get fodder through the following methods (1) buy from
Yodel Farm for 10G and (2) grew grass and use sickle to collect fodder.
That's not all! You need buy a milker from Saibara the Blacksmith. BTW
you can only get milk from ADULT cows ONLY. The cows that you bought
from Saibara are only in the calf stage. If you did not feed them
without fodder, they would not produce milk and their hearts will not
grow! Talk and brush them frequently helps to build up the heart meter.
If you don't want to bring fodder from the feed spout, build an enclosed
area where grass are grown and they will be feed automatically! You can
get cows by buying (recommended) or using a C.M Potion. Below is the
life cycle of a cow...

Baby Calf --> Calf --> Adult Cow

If you use a C.M potion, you will find a red heart next to the Cow's
thumbnail on Cows List screen. This indicates that the cow is pregnant.
BTW, only adult cows can get pregnant and they would not be able to
produce milk until they give birth. It takes 3 weeks for a cow to give
birth. You can't participate a pregnant cow into the Cow Festival.

After the cow has give birth, you will be able to name it. Remember to
take good care of it. Plant a new patch of grass to support the new
livestock. It takes 2 weeks for the baby calf to mature into a calf. It
takes around 2 weeks for the calf to mature into a cow. If you buy a
cow from Yodel Ranch, it will start off with the calf stage. Hence,
buying a new cow seems to be a more worthy investment.

NOTE: You can't get milk from the baby calf or calf. The Adult Cow looks
      a lot more bigger than Hero in size.

=-~ (Sheep) ~-=
For those who intend to sell 100 wool or yard balls, make sure that you
get a sheep ASAP. Sheep are easier to take care off. The sheep takes
only 2 weeks to become an adult. [Although there aren't any size
difference between a young sheep and adult sheep.] To build up its
affection, talk and brush it everyday. The sheep's wool sells much
compared to other produce. But it takes a week for the sheep to produce
wool. You need to use a clipper to get the wool off from the sheep,
which can bought from the Blacksmith. You can buy new sheep from Yodel
Ranch or use a S.M Potion on the sheep. The pregnancy period is 3 weeks.
To make a sheep pregnant, it must be an adult sheep and must not have
its wool sheared. You can't sheared the wool from the sheep during the
pregnancy period. To get yard balls, you need to get Adamantite Ore (
from the winter mine) and pay 20,000G to Saibara to build a Yard Ball
Maker. Talk to Saibara when the yard ball maker is ready. Just simply
position Hero in front of the yard ball maker with the wool in hand.
Aim and hit X to convert the wool into yard ball. Yard Ball fetches a
higher price by the way...

=-~ (Fish) ~-=
You can't start fishing at the start of the game... You need to get a
fishing rod (make sure you have an empty slot under equip section).
To get this equipment, you must go to the docks during 7am to 10am or
7pm to 10pm on either Friday, Saturday or Sunday. You will be able to
meet Greg the fisherman. Talk to him and pick that you like fishing.
To fish, just simply equip the fishing rod on hand and hit Square on a
water filled area. After the cast has reached the water, do not release
the Square button. Wait for it to vibrate and release. You will catch
a fish/ hooked up a garbage item or nothing! There are several places
where you can fish. I will elaborate more about them later.

You can breed fishes. [i.e. make a small fish to grow to large fish and
giving a new small fish when the existing small fish reaches the adult
stage]. To do this, you need to catch some fish (refer to the steps
that are mentioned in the paragraph above) and deposit them into the
fish pond. Next you need to get fish food through purchase only from
the Supermarket for 50G. You just need to deposit one fish food inside
the fish pond everyday. (The quantity of fishes in the pond does not
have any impact) You can only have 99 fishes in the fish pond. If you
have more than 50 fishes, you will see Greg visiting your pond and give
you a better fishing equipment. (You need to have an empty slot in the
equip portion before exiting the house in order to get the equipment)
The fishing pole is a better equipment compared to fishing rod. It is
not necessary that you need to use the fishing pole in order to catch
legendary fish. But some of legendary fishes requires a fishing pole.

There are several places where you can catch fish. They are the sea,
the lake, the waterfall, winter mine's pond and river streams. Weird
fishing spots include the hot-pot during Harvest Festival in Fall and
the fishing pond ^_^;) You can only catch large fish from the ocean.
The lake is fairly clean as being compared to other spots. The sea is
very dirty and you will get garbage most of time. But there is a tip,
which I myself also got from the library besides a fellow FAQ writer:

The books says something like the sentence below:
"The fish population in the sea has decreased greatly due to the
 dumping of trash into the rivers and sea" (a.k.a water population)

You can 'increase' the fish population (easier to catch fish from the
ocean) by depositing the garbage into the trash bin found in the Rose
Square OR...

Get the basket (bought from Supermarket for 5000G) to the harbor. Place
the basket behind Hero. As you get a garbage item (e.g. fish bone,
trash can and boot), just aim and throw in the basket. You will find
the basket shakes a bit but there is no crops for sale! For my case, it
did helps to improve my chances of catching fish during winter.

=-~ (Halo) ~-=
If you got a '1' under this section, you are really a bad job in taking
care of your animals. There are certain indications of chickens, cow
and sheep dying... I know that if you don't feed your chicken for a
month, it start to turns brown in color. If you left your chickens
outside the farm during a weather hazard, you need to do the following:

Raise your hand, waive and say 'bye'! (The chickens are blown off!)

=-~ [FS] ~-=
These will represent the legendary fishes that you have caught. There
are a total of six legendary fishes. They are the Carp, Angler, Sea
Bream, Catfish and Squid. For the requirements, please refer to the
walkthrough or the tips section.

=-~ Amount Shipped ~-=
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I supposed that the diagram below spells out everything that I need to
explain ^_^;) It is a pity that the makers does not use a help bar
below to aid users to understand what the crop is.

 |__________________________________________________|

But there are a few things that I need to explain first before I
proceed onto the next section...

Crops that are marked with '*' can be obtained by selling 100 of the
seasonal crops to buy the seeds from the Supermarket.

[Spring Planting]
Turnip seeds, Potato seeds and Cucumber seeds can be bought from the
Supermarket. To get Cabbage seeds, you need to go and look for Won at
Doug's Place. Grow 100 kinds of the seeds mentioned above and you will
be able to buy Strawberry seeds.

[Summer Planting]
Tomato seeds, Onion seeds and Corn seeds can be bought from the
Supermarket. To get Pineapple seeds, you need to go and look for Won at
Doug's Place. Grow 100 kinds of the seeds mentioned above and you will
be able to buy Pumpkin seeds.

[Fall Planting]
Sweet Potato seeds, Eggplant seeds and Carrot seeds can be bought from
the Supermarket. To get Green Pepper seeds, you need to go and look for
Won at Doug's Place. Grow 100 kinds of the seeds mentioned above and you
will be able to buy Spinach seeds.

Crops that are marked with '`' are stuff that can be 'manufactured' by
the OO Makers. To get a maker, you must meet the prequisite such as the
essential ore and a handful sum of money. Once you got a maker, you just
need to deposit the 'prequisite crop' into the maker to get 'manfactured
crop'. Below are the transfer chart through OO Makers:

Starting Produce        Manfactured Produce via OO Makers
Egg (Normal)            Mayonnaise S
Egg (Good)              Mayonnaise M
Egg (Excellent)         Mayonnaise L
Egg (Golden)            Mayonnaise G
Milk S                  Cheese S
Milk M                  Cheese M
Milk L                  Cheese L
Milk G                  Cheese G
Wool S                  Yard Ball (S)
Wool M                  Yard Ball (M)
Wool L                  Yard Ball (L)
Wool G                  Yard Ball (G)

There is an alternative way of getting mayonnaise. You need to have
eggs and a mixer (bought from the shopping network in Sat, refer to
Recipe Guide for more details). The size of mayonnaise differs as it
based on the quality of the egg.

=-~ Chicken List, Cow List and Sheep List ~-=
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
For every chicken, cow and sheep you own, you will get 1% for your
farm. To build up the hearts, refer to the Main menu explanation for
more details. The list typically illustrate the icon of animal, the
amount of hearts it has and its birthday. When a cow/ a sheep is
pregnant (when you use a C.M /S.M potion on a cow / sheep
respectively), you will find a small heart next to the icon. Below is
an ASCII illustrate how the basic layout of a single animal:

[Icon] Name            [S] Date / Age
       OOOOOOOOOO

Legend:
OO      Hearts
[Icon]  Icon of the chick/chicken/sheep/cow
[S]     Season

I supposed the animals have infinite lifespan as long you take good
care of them... (sounds a bit ridiculous huh?)

=-~ Help ~-=
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The help section features the Harvest Sprites's affection for you. If
you are 'good friends' (i.e. by making them happy by giving them flour)
with them, they will be more willing to help! There are seven harvest
sprites as shown in the help section. There is a heart indicator for
every sprite. The more hearts the sprites have, they will be more
willing to help your farm out. The names of the sprites are:

Chef (red); Nappy (orange); Hoggy (yellow); Timid (green); Bold
(purple); Aqua (light blue) and Staid (blue).

You can locate them in a small hut found beside/ behind the church.

Importance of heart indicator
If you talk to them several times, you will be able to 'employ' them
for a maximum of 7 days. They will be very unwilling to help during
spring because of their spring tea party. You may end up talking to
them 6 times if their heart ratings are 2+. The heart indicator does
not only focus on their willingness to work but also their efforts on
the farm. If their heart ratings are low, they will work with less
effort compared to high heart ratings.

To build up the heart rating, you can give them FLOUR! If the day
happened to fall on Sunday or Tuesday, give them WINE. Flour can be
bought from the Supermarket for 50G and Wine can be bought from Aja
Winery (opposite the Blacksmith shop) for 300G. You will find them
resting all over your farm when they have finished the work. The flour
is works like wages.

Some tips in hiring:
Do not hire them all at once. You will find out one day that you don't
have any help and you will be so busy that you will forget to hire
them. Plan your days wisely. Give them flour when they start to slow
down in their work. If you hire them when their heart ratings are
between 2 to 3, you may need to do some spot checking on your farm.
You will bound to find incomplete work. When their heart ratings are
8 to 10 (in terms of hearts btw), they will work and finish the job!

About Chef:
If you give Chef gifts like flowers, cucumbers or turnips, he will
tell something about Kappa in the lake found at Mother's Hill. That
leads to the gaining of a secret power berry. PLEASE refer to the 
'Game-play Tips' section for more details.

=-~ Earnings and Expenses ~-=
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Personally, you will find two important numbers found at the top right
hand corner of the menu. The top figure states the earnings (or
revenue) and the lower figure states the expenses. Earnings will
increase when you drop a produce that can be sold. Expenses are the
cash that you spend on items such as seeds, jewelry, upgrading, etc.

BTW, could someone explain to me about those bar charts found below the
screen? I really don't understand it at all!

=-~ Level ~-=
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
You will find the five tools that can be upgraded with an ore by the
Saibara. Upgraded Tools are important as they allow you to have a
special effect like watering an area of 3x3, chopping tree stumps, etc.
You will see the list of tools.

100% and above - Allows you to upgrade the tool to Copper.
200% and above - Allows you to upgrade the tool to Silver.
300% and above - Allows you to upgrade the tool to Gold
400% (or max) - Allows you to upgrade the tool to Mystrile.

If your tool are available for upgrade, you can find an icon of the ore
to upgrade the tool. PLEASE refer to V.4 'The Five Basic Farming Tools'
for more details.

~- Equip Menu -~
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
At first, I was thinking whether to add this section to this FAQ. But
I have found that it is very important as I have often refer to this
during the FAQ. Hence to reduce the amount of questions, I have decide
to add this section in the FAQ.

(To activate the Equip Menu, just hit Triange button)

Before I begin, below is an ASCII art to illustrate the menu:

You will should see a similar layout as being illustrated on the ASCII
art below. You will find 6 available slots. I supposed separating the
sections into two portions will make my explanations more clearer.

-[Equip]-
1 illustrates the tool on hand. If you hit Square, you will be able to
use this tool. 2 and 3 are tools that you can held on without using it.
Our hero can only use one tool at one time ^_^;). To switch from Tool
1 to Tool 2, you just need to hit the R1 button. You will have an
animation of Hero raising that tool. BTW, You can only switch in a
clockwise motion. You can arrange the tools manually by using X button
and D-Pad.

-[Rucksack]-
A, B and C are slots for the rucksack. With the default rucksack,
Hero can only carries the maximum of 3 items [other tool items,
please refer to the Item Bestiary for the list of tool items and
non-tool items]. A will be addressed as 'item on hand', If there is an
item is edible, hitting Square button will cause Hero to consume it.
(Regardless where it is poisonous or not!) If the item is not edible,
there will be no actions. Talking an item (using X button) while
holding an item will cause you to give the item to the villager. If
Hero is not talking, he will 'throw' the item. If there is a bin, he
will deposit the item instead of throwing it on the ground. When holding
an item on hand, you can't use your tool and rotate your tools. Hit
R2 to keep the item (I called it 'Item 1') into the rucksack as it will
be placed in Slot B. If you got another item (Item 2) in Slot A, hit R2
will result Item 2 placed in B and Item 1 placed in C. When you have
three items for a rucksack (i.e. all slots are occupied), you will not
be able to switch between items using R2 button.

1. Default Rucksack       |  2. Large Rucksack

 Medium  - 10 slots       |  |       |_____|_____|_____|_____| |
 Large   - 18 slots       |  |_________________________________|

NOTE: Due to the author's laziness, the ASCII diagram of the medium
      rucksack is not added to the FAQ.

To upgrade your rucksack, you need to visit the Supermarket. You need
to upgrade your rucksack from small (default) to medium and medium to
large. In other words, you need to do 2 upgrades.

To upgrade to the medium rucksack, it cost you 3000G.
To upgrade to the large rucksack, it cost you 5000G. The large
rucksack will be available after you have bought the medium rucksack.

[V.11] The Calendar
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
Well, my method of expressing the games calendar is a bit different, as
compared to other FAQs that you found at GameFAQs. I will be showing
you guys the actual calendar layout for the 3 years of game-play. It
will be too unnecessary for me to list down the dates for year 4 and
beyond. This section will contain on the date triggering events and it
excludes the 'date variable' events. (these will be elaborated in the
walkthrough)

      a present! Or you can give the sprite a flower. Anyway, Thomas
      will come to your farm and request for three turnips and ask you

      will love you more... If your birthday falls on this date, check

      mushroom as his birthday present. You will have a meeting with

8th:  It is Harvest Festival. You can fish at the pot (duh) and get
      trash! Talk to the Mayor and drop the Green Pepper or Sweet Potato
      into the pot. The villagers will be unhappy with the hot-pot if
      you drop fish, oil or any garbage... even your dog...

      flour from the supermarket and give it to him.

      peak... She will treat you some food (Moon-view dumplings) by the
      way...

      You will get a cut-scene of Duke asking you to collect grapes from
      his winery. He will ask you to find someone. Go and look for

      Place. If you don't, Cliff is going leave the village..
15th: It is Karen's birthday. Get a bottle of wine from Aja Winery [the
      Truffle will cost more than a bottle of wine] and give it to her
      at the Supermarket from 1pm to 6pm. ~ refer to 23rd of Fall
17th: It is the Doctor's birthday. The appropiate gift would be Green
      Herb. It would be better if you can get a Red Herb or Blue Herb.
      (The above steps can be done, provided that you have the kitchen.)
20th: Barley will come to your farm and ask whether you want to
      participate a sheep in the festival. Make sure that your sheep has
      wool un-shearedd, is at least 2 weeks old and not pregnant. This
      day happens to be Carter's birthday. He is very flexible. Give him
      a bottle of wine as his gift. BTW, Carter won't mind receiving
      gifts like mushroom, truffle or wild grapes.
21st: This is the Sheep Festival. Just go to the Yodel Ranch (even if
      you did not have a sheep to participate), and enjoy the festival.
      The villagers will like you more.
23rd: It will be Anna's birthday (Basil's wife). I would recommend you
      to get a flower for her.

=======================================================================
Game-play Tips
=======================================================================
Under this section, I will post some tips in playing Harvest Moon: BTN.
If you got any tips, you sent to me via my e-mail address.

(Tip 1: Go to the Hot Spring once Hero sat on the ground)
IMO, the hot spring is the key to maintain good health and stamina. It
also prevent Hero from overslept till 8 am or 12 noon. Spend an hour
there after a warm-up exercise on the farm. 

I supposed Hero himself needs to bath too. ^_^;)

(Tip 2: Get on very good terms with the Harvest Sprites)
The Harvest Sprites are found in a house that is located behind the
Church. They are Chef, Nappy, Hoggy, Timid and Bold, Aqua, Staid.
They are extremely easily to make friends with and will address Hero
as "budum". Give them FLOUR, which can be bought from the Supermarket
for 50G to boost up their relationship. You may need to wrapped up a
flour using a wrapping paper for Bold, who is the only sprite that
does not like flour to take extremely. They love WINE and Bold loves
Grape Juice!

Otherwise, you need to talk to them many times in order to persuade
them to work for you:

Talk to them and you will get the following options:

Harvest the fields
Water the plants
Take care of animals
Nothing

Next you will be given the amount of days that you can assign the task
to:

All day tomorrow
Three days starting from tomorrow
One week starting from tomorrow
Nothing

When assigning jobs for them, make sure that it is not too much for
them. Please be more considerate as they are very small compared to
the fields. To make them more effective assign them in groups of 3
and 4 for different weeks. Make sure that you give them flour as
their payment for work [4x50G =200G] in order to maintain good
relationship. They WILL be more willing and productive if you do this.
The more hearts they have, the more productive they will be!

Anyway, below are some facts, which I have gathered from my research
in the Library. (It is the library in the game!)

Long time ago, they live apart because of the clash in their
personalities. Eventually, they found out that they have no company
and they have decide to live together with Nappy, who is offered a
house by the residents staying in the village. The hardworking meter is
my judgment on their personality, not their actual performance!

- Chef -   [Hardworking Meter: Medium]
He is the red Harvest Sprite and he loves to cook. His birthday falls
on Fall 14th. His ideal birthday present will definitely be flour that
is being wrapped with wrapping paper. ^_^;) Anyway, it works for all
harvest sprites.

- Nappy - [Hardworking Meter: High]
He is the orange Harvest Sprite who does not have any bad habits unlike
others. His birthday falls on winter 22nd.

- Hoggy - [Hardworking Meter: Low]
He is the yellow Harvest Sprite who loves to sleep and is a bit lazy to
work unwillingly. His birthday falls on Fall 10th.

- Timid - [Hardworking Meter: Medium]
He is the green Harvest Sprite who is easily to be scared. I supposed
that he wears green so that he can hide in the forests ^_^;) His
birthday falls on Summer 16th.

- Staid - [Hardworking Meter: High]
He is the blue Harvest Sprite who stands near the entrance of the
Harvest Sprites' house. His birthday falls on Spring 15th.

- Aqua - [Hardworking Meter: Low]
He is the light blue harvest sprite who loves light blue color. He
likes to dress 'nicely'. (Even though that there isn't any difference
in their clothing ^_^;) His birthday falls on Spring 24th.

- Bold - [Hardworking Meter: High]
He is the purple harvest sprite. He is considered 'brave' as he can
hide in the woods and make use of his battle cry to scare off others.
His birthday falls on Spring 4th.

You really need them to take of your animals [they will collect eggs,
milk and wool too] on bad weather days like snowstorm or hurricane.

(Tip 3: Power Berries)
In Harvest Moon: BTN, you can find a couple of berries who gives your
character power and increase their hit points by 10. [That's according
to the TV Shopping Network]. I supposed that Power Berries increases
Hero's stamina and allowing him to do more work than before. But there
is a point to take note of and that is they are very hard to get and
expensive. There are a total of 10 berries for you to carry:

[1]  You will get one through fishing in the ocean.
[2]  You will get one through mining in the mine found behind the
     Waterfall (It is found near the hot spring area).
[3]  You will get one through mining in the mine found in the island
     during Winter season. It is the mine that is surrounded by lake.
[4]  Go to the mine found on the island surrounded by the frozen lake
     in Winter. Go behind the mine and hit X button to examine it. You
     should find one.
[5]  Go to the tree stump nears the bridge in Area #2 of Mother's Hill.
     (Your Ax must be Copper Ax or better)
     You will get a prompt from the tree not to chop it down. Pick "Do
     not chop" and you will get a Power Berry.
[6]  Win the Summer Swimming Race. The winning formula is taking 5 deep
     breaths (hit X button 5 times) and take a rest of 3 seconds.
[7]  Get 1001 medals and you will be able to buy the Power Berry.
[8]  Buy it from TV Shopping Network for 5010G. (Inclusive of telephone
     charges at Doug's Place) BTW, you must watch the entire show!
[9]  Get five harvested crops like Tomatoes and Onions. You can only do
     this during Sundays nighttime. Just simply drop one of the crops
     with positioning Hero behind the waterfall.
     You will meet the Goddess. Do this 4 more times and she will give 
     you a Power Berry after the fifth crop has been deposited
     in the pond.
[10] You need to plant more than 90 flowers (!) and Anna will visit your
     farm around 1pm to 3:30pm. I have managed to get a Power Berry in
     Summer by planting 99 Pink Cat Flowers.

(Tip 4: Special Berry from Kappa)
[it is true; heard from Chef of the Harvest Sprites]
This is NOT a power berry. It is a special berry, which doubles the
stamina of Hero. First of all, you need to get 3 cucumbers. You can
buy a packet of cucumber seeds for 200G. Bring the 4 cucumbers (in
case you miss one ^_^;) and go up to the lake of Mother's Hill. Next
go to lakeside and approach near the lake. You will find 2 trees on
the extreme left of lake. Position Hero in front of the trees and
dropped 3x cucumbers on the lake. You will meet Kappa and he will
award you a berry, which halves the energy consumption!

(Tip 5: Watch the TV everyday!)
It is very easy to get a whole of information from the "News" and
"Weather Forecast". The weather forecast will reveal information
regarding the next day's weather. The news will reveal about the
upcoming festivals. The television channels will be available until
12am. The program, 'Life in the Farm' is a show that beginners to
Harvest Moon show not missed!

Of course, make sure you watch the following programs too after the
first week in your game play!

Delicious Hour [Tues]
The host, Naru will introduce you a new recipe every new session. It
also includes during festival seasons. You can also know what are the
variations that you can make to the recipes.

TV Shopping [Sat]
A lot of people may ask the following question: "How do I get utensils
for my kitchen?" The answer is to view the entire program. You must
read the entire message. During the program, you will know the product
and the price of the utensils. They cost rather a lot as a simple
Kitchen Knife can be sold for 3000G! After you read the program, make a
trip to Doug's Place in the village (It is really good for those who
are wooing Ann.) and examine the black object near the counter where
Doug is standing. That's the telephone! Examine it and pay 10G. Next
you will be prompted whether to buy the item or not. Make sure you 
watched finish the entire program or else you can't make the phone
call.

For your information, below is the flow of utensils available for sale:

Utensils/Products          Price
Kitchen Knife              3000G
Frying Pan                 2500G
Cooking Pot                3000G
Mixer                      2000G
Whisk                      2000G
Rolling Pin                2000G
Oven                       5000G
Seasoning Set              5000G
Power Berry                5000G

Of course, you won't be able to receive the goods immediately. The
goods will only be delivered to your doorstep on three days later after
you have made the purchase. If in the case of bad weather like 
Hurricane, you will receive the good on the next fine day. The Power
Berry seems to be delivered a little bit later...

(Tip 6: Make friends!)
Friends are important, as they will try to help you when you are in
need of help. The villagers of Mineral village are friendly and easy to
make friends with. Besides if you visit them often, you will get to
know more about them... They will be more willing to talk to your
character and they will give you recipes! (Of course, you need to cook
a dish in order to add to the total number of recipes. You need to have
the kitchen, utensils and seasoning set along with the ingredients.)

(Tip 7: Build fences!)
Building fences are really a huge problem at the beginning of game.
This is due to the mess that you need to clear up! Clear a small area
in front of the barn and the stable. This is because it saves you the
trouble of getting the cows, pony and sheep back to the barn... 

The main material for the fence is lumber blocks obtained from the
lumber spout found in between the barn and stable. Take as many blocks
as possible and deposit them on the brown soil. If you deposit on the
green grass, they will be destroyed!

Make an enclosed area of 9 x 8 for the cows and sheep. Make a separate
enclosed area of 6 x 5 for that hard-to-tame horse in the beginning.
   
(Tip 8: Feed your livestock and brush them often!)
In Harvest Moon: Back to Nature, you will find your livestock gain
hearts if you do really take good care of them. If you do not, they
will not produce good products for you to harvest.

=-~ Tips in taking care of Cows ~-=
I will talk about the cows first. Cows are expensive! They cost 6000G
each, which is definitely a lot for you to spend early in the game. But
they will reap in more with their milk. You need to buy a MILKER from
Saibara the Blacksmith (2000G) to get their milk. Talking and brushing
them with the brush (which can be bought from Saibara for 800G) also
make the cow happy. You need to get the fodder from the feed spout if
you leave them in the barn... For those who want to save the trouble of
taking fodder from the feed spout, you need to build fences with grass
on that enclosed area. They will be fed automatically but there are a
couple of disadvantages... You need to bring them back to the barn when
it rains otherwise they will fall sick! (It applies to the sheep)
You need to buy Animal Medicine from Barley of Yodel Ranch for 1000G
and use it using Square button on the cow/sheep.

=-~ Tips on taking care of sheep ~-=
IMO, Sheep isn't much productive as compared to chickens and cows.
Their wool takes around 7 days to grow and you can only earn a bit of
money out of it. Like the cow, sheep love to be brushed, talked and
feed. You need to get a pair of Clippers from Saibara the Blacksmith
for 1800G to get the produce, wool. Like the cows, they feed on fodder
too. Refer to the above section for more tips.

=-~ Protect of livestock against wild animals! ~-=
They will also face the danger of being attacked by wild dogs but you
can do the following if that happened:
1) Get your dog to help!
2) Enclosed the area with fences. (Refer to the tip #7)
3) Use your sickle, hammer, axe and hoe to attack the wild dogs.
The bell (500G) is quite handy as it allows your cows and sheep to
response. This helps to make your job easier to return them back to the
barn...

=-~ Taking Care of Chickens ~-=
Chickens love to quack and be carried. You want them to produce eggs,
make sure that you have gotten sufficient feed from your feed spout.
Each chicken needs a chicken feed daily. The chicken feed can be bought
from the Poultry Farm for 10G each or you can get 10 feeds by throwing
a corn against the windmill. The quality of eggs will improve as your
chickens gained more hearts. To increase the gaining of hearts, feed
them everyday. You can get golden eggs if you win the Chicken Festival.

Easy Feeding of Chickens:
[This can only be done if you have the large rucksack, upgraded
Henhouse, Mayonnaise Maker and the basket]
Once you have entered the henhouse, place the bin in front of the
maker. Get 9 chicken feeds from the feed spot. Deposit 5 feeds in the
feed boxes. Go to the feed spout and collect another feed. Deposit
the remaining 5 into the other feed boxes.

(Tip 8: Weather Hazards)
You can be expected weathers to be fine all the time throughout your
game play, hence make sure you watch the weather forecast everyday. You
will avoid bad weather days by resetting the game or re-doing the
previous day's activities in a different manner.

Weather hazards like typhoon, hurricanes and snowstorms can be very
damaging. They could damage your fences and your crops. If you place a
chicken there, prepare to hatch another one. If the horse or the dog is
being placed outside their housing, they could lose some hearts during
that weather. It will be more damaging as it also affects the hothouse,
which is made of glass. There is nothing that you can do during these
weather hazards. Even the Harvest Sprites can't help you...

(Tip 9: Easy money in spring)
Get Turnips. They are cheap (120G for 9 seeds) and you need to water
them for 3 days and harvest them on the fourth day. Hence packed up
with a lot of Turnip seeds and harvest them!

(Tip 10: Honey from the beehive)
Actually, I have mentioned this in the main walkthrough as some of
the readers may not read it. You can start getting honey in summer of
your first year. You need to plant a 3x3 patch of Pink Cat Flowers.
You will find bees making a beehive at your Apple Tree (near the fish
pond) and collect the honey. Next bring it to Gotz's house and give it
to Louis. The next day he will visit your apple tree and says that he
would ask the shipper (Zack) to increase the price for each bottle of
honey by 10G. The honey serves a great gift for your baby...

(Tip 11: Getting the Fishing Rod)
Hopefully, you can get the fishing on the first week of your game play.
To get a fish rod, you must have at least an empty slot in your Equip
(where you find tools such as Hoe and Ax) screen. Next go to the
Mineral Beach during Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7am to 10am or
7pm to 10pm. You will find a fisherman (named Greg). He will ask you
whether you like fishing or not. Pick that you like to fish and he will
give you a fishing rod. Refer to the basic tutorial for more details
regarding fishing.

(Tip 12: Getting the Fishing Pole)
The fishing pole is a better fishing rod, which allows you to catch
fish more easier. You can also catch legendary fishes with either one
of the equipment: the Fishing Rod or Fishing Pole. To get a fishing
pole, you must have at least 40 fishes inside your fish pond. You will
find Greg the following morning and he will give you a Fishing Pole. (
PS: make sure that you have extra slot under the Equip screen)

(Tip 13: Legendary Fish)
Refer to Tip 12 or Tip 13 on how to get fishing equipment. I would
prefer to use the pole (as it is easier to catch fish).

In Summer ONLY:
Squid  - You need to get a small fish. (You can easily get one from the
         lake by fishing) Next go to the ocean and throw the fish into
         the water. Cast your reel and fish for a day and you will get
         it sooner or later.

In Fall ONLY:
Carp - You need to get the other five legendary fishes before you can
       start to fish for this one. During fall, go to the lake and cast
       your fishing reel...

In Winter ONLY:
Angler - You need to fish at the ocean during winter between 10pm to
         8am. You can get this with a fishing rod.
Catfish - You need to go to the mine found in the middle of the lake.
          Dig the mine until you have reached the tenth hole. You will
          find an entrance to a hidden pond. You can get this legendary
          fish by fishing with the fishing pole.

Any Season:
Char - You must get the Grilled Fish, Sashimi, Sushi and Chirashi Sushi
       recipes. Please refer to the recipe section under the Item
       Bestiary for more details. After gotten all the four recipes, go
       to the 'Goddess Pond' (the waterfall) and fish for this
       legendary fish.

Spring, Fall or Winter:
Sea Beam - This is perhaps the toughest but the most challenging
           legendary fish to catch. You need to catch and sell more
           than 200 fishes. I still haven't been caught this fish yet.
           I have tried in all seasons and I still got no chance in
           getting it... According to the GS code, it will not appear
           in Summer.

/ VII \________________________________________________________________
=======================================================================
Walkthrough
=======================================================================
The walkthrough consists of two key sections. One of them is based on
how to date the girls more effectively to build up the love indicator.
The other one is the main walkthrough, which focus on the key sub-
quests. In other words, you need select one from the first section
before you can get a 'complete' walkthrough.

=-~ VII.1 Dating the Girls Guide ~-=
In the game, you have two main goals: one is to rebuild the farm and
find the lost 'girl'. This girl can be any one of the five girls under
the description below. You need to woo them by talking to them, give
them presents and make their love indicator grow.

(-(- The Love Indicator -)-)
The love indicator is the heart that is found on the lower right hand
corner of the message box. The love indicator will be improved based
on how much attention you have paid to the girl in terms of talking:

Black  - Neutral
Purple - You are on good terms with the girls.
Blue   - You are on very good terms with the girl.
Green  - Your love for the girl has been noticed
Yellow - The girl has some interest on you...
Orange - You are on a date with the girl...
Red    - LOVE!

To build up the love indicator, just present them with the desired
gifts, which is being explained in details under the girl's individual
guide. If you are on the right track of improving the heart meter, the
'heart' will beep more often and becomes larger!

(-(- Gifts Responses -)-)
During certain events, make sure that you choose your responses wisely
in dating the girl. For example, when Popuri asks you what you think of
her wanting to leave would be, if you say she should stay, she'll get
mad at you, and her love rating for you will go down!
 
When you give gifts, when they only say "Thank you" that doesn't 
necessarily mean they like the gift they have. If you sees their face
blushes, they will definitely like the gift!

Talking to them in between while giving them gifts helps to build up
their love towards you. Give them different types of gifts will have
better results compared to giving them the same items all the time.

(-(- Marriage -)-)
So, when do you know that you are ready for marriage?
Once you have made her heart indicator red, you can propose her with a 
Blue Feather, which can be bought from the Supermarket as soon as you
made her heart indicator orange and above. The Blue Feather costs
1000G. If the proposal is a failure, the blue feather will be returned
back to the Supermarket and you need to pay for another 1000G.

When you propose to her (equip Blue Feather and hit the Square button
while talking to her), she will says something, which makes you puzzled
whether she agrees to marry you or not. Just check the calendar and you
should find the wedding ceremony being held a week later (the date will
be marked with a heart symbol). It will be 8 days later if the 7th day
happens to be a festival.

The wedding ceremony will be triggered automatically as you reached the
wedding date. But please remember to ask the Harvest Sprites to help
in taking care of your farm for that day. Of course, you need to do it
the day before.

After the wedding ceremony, you will be prompted with a prompt like
what you want your wife to address you as:

Dear
Honey
Darling

If you check the status window [hit the START button], you will find
an icon of your wife under the Recipe icon. Now you got an objective
and that is to build up the heart meter. I have start from a heart
rating of 10 ^_^;)

After marriage, your wife will stay inside your house... (Of course!)

Days                  Time Period     Place                     Weather
Mondays to Sundays    6am to 12pm     Living Room               [Any]%
Special Occasions*    12pm to 2pm     Dining Table              [Any]%
Mondays to Sundays    12pm to 6pm     Living Room - Kitchen     [Any]
Mondays to Sundays    6pm to 8pm      Living Room               [Any]%
Mondays to Sundays    8pm to 10pm     Bedroom                   [Any]
Mondays to Sundays    10pm to 6am     Bedroom (in bed)          [Any]%

% - if the baby is still in the cradle stage, you will find your wife
    carrying it.

The special occasion events (e.g. your birthday, wife's birthday,
baby's birthday and wedding anniversary) will be triggered
automatically at 12pm inside the house.

(-(- Baby -)-)
In Harvest Moon: BTN, you can have a child as a bonus to rack up your
score when it is being evaluated in the 3rd year of game-play. To have
a baby, you need to do the following:

- Give your wife gifts for a month! - 
(The heart rating must be at least 10!)

You need to give your wife a [Like It] or [Love It] gifts in order to
speed up the pregnancy progress. Around a week or so, your wife will
start to says something that she don't feel like eating or something.
Go to the clinic and you will find her at the Clinic, which reveals
about her pregnancy...

- Continue to give your wife gifts for two months -
(The heart rating must be at least 10!)

You will get a cut-scene automatically triggered at your house with
your wife's kin(s) coming to your house along with the Doctor and
Elli. Talk to the kin(s) and attempt to enter the bedroom... 

(You will be knocked out?)

Now the baby is born. Talk to everyone first before talking to your
wife. You will be thus prompted to give a name to your child. Please
note that the plants and animals will be automatically taken care
of...

Now you will see your wife carrying the baby walking around your
house. Talk to her and give her gifts. You can't give gifts to your
baby currently as it is still under the intensive care of your wife.
Around a few days later (For my case, it is around 3 days), your baby
will fall sick. I would recommend you to take the baby to see the
Doctor... (Another day is gone...)

- Continue to give your wife gifts for two months -

Well, the baby has grown a bit and could crawl. You can give him
gifts to build up his heart meter. He LOVES Hot Milk and Honey. BTW,
don't neglect your wife! You can talk to him but can't carry him *sigh*
While the baby is at its cradle stage, don't move it when you are
having celebrations at the dinner table. The heart will fall from 1 to
nothing and back to 1 but eventually nothing. However after it was able
to crawl, give it a Hot Milk and you will get a 1 heart back!

[Cradle Stage]
Days                  Time Period     Place                     Weather
Mondays to Sundays    6am to 12pm     Living room               [Any]
Special Occasions     12pm to 2pm     Dinning Table             [Any]*
Mondays to Sundays    12pm to 6pm     In the bed...             [Any]
Mondays to Sundays    6pm to 8pm      Living room               [Any]
Mondays to Sundays    8pm to 6am      Sleep                     [Any]

* You can't give gifts to the baby while he is in this stage. Don't
  touch him during celebrations or the heart rating will fall!

Two months later...

[Crawling Stage]
Days                  Time Period     Place                     Weather
Mondays to Sundays    6am to 8pm      Living Room               [Any]
Mondays to Sundays    8pm to 6am      Bedroom                   [Any]

The baby looks pretty cute and weird IMO. But its expression is easily
noticeable whether the baby likes the gifts or not. Honey and hot milk
is your best gifts for the baby!

(-(- Festival Changes -)-)
Of course, there will be some speech changes in the kin and your wife.
Your wife will no longer following the same time schedule as before,
as she will staying at home except during festival seasons. There are
some changes that are observed by me:

~- Spring -~
1st -> New Year Festival [6pm onwards] (year 3 onwards)
It will be applicable as normal. You can choose to dance with your
wife by talking to her at Rose Square. This can only be done if you
have danced with Karen on year 2.

8th -> Goddess Festival [10am to 5pm]
Talk to your wife on 7th and she will say that she will go along with
you to the Rose Square for that festival. On the 8th, she will be
waiting for you at the farm. Talk to her and go to Rose Square. The
following sequences will be same. She will be VERY upset if you choose
to go out with another girl...

14th -> Spring Thanksgiving Day [NIL]
Remember to bake cookies for your wife and give it to her along with
a normal gift. Your wife doesn't mind you giving gifts to others.

~- Summer -~
12th -> Tomato Festival [10am to 5pm]
It will be as usual. But you will get a scolding from Stu if you are
married to Elli...

24th -> Fireworks Display at Mineral Beach [6pm onwards]
Talk to everyone first before talking to your wife. You can't ask Kai
to watch the fireworks with you once you are married. If you talk to
other girls, you can choose to watch with them but your wife will be
very upset if you do so.

~- Fall -~
13th -> Moonlight Festival [6pm onwards]
Go up to the Mother's Hill at night and you will find your wife at the
peak of Mother's Hill. It is love...

~- Winter -~
14th -> Winter Thanksgiving Festival [....]
You will get a cut-scene with no images except text boxes or your wife
giving you a chocolate cake without letting you know... You will not
be able to get chocolate or chocolate cakes from other girls in the
town. That's the downfall after marriage...

24th -> Star Night Festival [6pm onwards]
Your wife will make a splendid dinner for you... *burp*

(-(- Special Occasions -)-)
These dates are pretty special as compared to the festivals listed
above. They can ONLY be triggered from 12pm to 3pm. Your wife will
do some cooking to celebrate this occasion. Talk to your wife and 
you will be prompted with the following prompts:

Your birthday*
Wife's birthday
Wedding Anniversary
Child's birthday

Make sure that you don't forget any of the dates besides your
birthday... (Your wife will love to remind you about your birthday.)

(-(- The Girls -)-)
Under this section, you will find a comprehensive guide on dating these
girls and a fact-file of the girl. If you want to find a more
comprehensive data about the girl's likes and dislikes, you can refer
to Timothy Maus (halbarad@fnord.com)'s FAQ at GameFAQs.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Ann
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

[Fact File]
IMO, Ann is cute and cheerful. She may look a bit tomboyish in
appearance but she is really gentle at heart. She lives in the Inn
known as Doug's Place in the Mineral Village. She wears a yellow top
and denim outfit like a tomboy. Her mother has passed away several
years ago and she is brought up by her father, Doug. Doug seems to be
very worried about Ann being unable to get married. Both Ann and Doug
are great cooks. Normally, either one of them will win the Cooking
Festival. She is pretty funny too.

[Ann's Favorites and Dislikes]
To make her heart indicator grew, you need to talk to her often and
give her gifts. There is a small tip in giving gifts. This also
applies to other villagers. Give them a mixture of gifts.

Dating Ann is really easy, as she likes a lot of things -

[Love It]    Spa-boiled Eggs; Chocolate; Salad; Pizza; Omelet; Fried
             Rice; Bracelet; Earrings; Necklace; Cake; Cheesecake;
             Cheese Fondue; Grilled Fish; Apple Pie; Stew; Curry; Ice
             Cream
[Like It]    Egg; Golden Egg; Wild Grapes; Rice Ball; Tomato; Bread;
             Pineapple; Milk; Cheese; Apple; Strawberry; Tomato Juice;
             Boiled Egg; Pizza
[Neutral]    Moon Drop Flower; Toy Flower; Pink Cat Flower; Mushroom;
             Truffle; Bamboo Shoot; Magic Red Flower; Ketchup; Red
             Magic Red Flower; Wine
[Dislike It] Blue Herbs; Green Herbs; Charcoal (refers to the recipes
             that you have failed...); Small Fish; Medium Fish
[Hate It]    Red Herbs; Poisonous Mushroom; Fodder; Copper Ore; Silver
             Ore; Gold Ore; Mystrile Ore; Orichalcum Ore; Lumber;
             [Garbage]; Chicken Feed; Weeds

~- Ann's Locations -~
Where to locate her? She is very easy to find as you are bound to meet
her.

[Normal]
Days                 Time Period     Place                      Weather
Monday to Sunday     8am to 10am     Hot Spring Area            [Good]
Monday to Sunday     8am to 9am      Doug's Place; 1F- Her Room [Bad]
Monday to Sunday     9am to 10am     Doug's Place; 1F           [Bad]
Monday to Sunday     10am to 1pm     Doug's Place; 2F           [Any]
Monday to Sunday     1pm to 3pm      Doug's Place; 1F           [Any]
Monday to Sunday     3pm to 8pm      Doug's Place; 2F           [Any]

* You can only gain access to her room when her heart indicator is
  above orange and make friends with Doug.

[Marriage with Cliff]
Getting her to marry to Cliff (another funny looking character IMO) is
very tough as compared to sub-quests.

1) If you pick "Seem cheerful" at your visit to the Inn, you will find
   Doug doing some matchmaking between Cliff and Ann.
2) Visit the church and you will get a cut-scene where Ann and Cliff
   are intending to go home together. I got this cut-scene before
   I got Cliff to work Aja Winery's vineyard.
3) After you have gotten Cliff the job at Aja Winery, visit the
   vineyard in the 3rd year, you will find Ann bring lunch for Cliff.
   This is followed by a cut-scene...
4) During your third year, you will get a cut-scene while visiting the
   Inn. You will find Ann giving Cliff a menu...

After you triggered this cut-scene, you will need to wait for the
'marriage cut-scene'. This marriage cut-scene is simply an invitation
from Cliff to you at the start of a day. You can do anything for that
day unfortunately.

~- Key Quests -~
Below is a detailed list of important quests that you are bound to
encounter in the course of dating Ann:

[Quest 1: Your opinions of Ann]

=-~ VII.2 The Main Walkthrough ~-=
For this section, you will find a complete guide that focus seasons by
seasons. It will be nuts to make a day-by-day walkthrough. Throughout
the walkthrough, it will also cover some of the sub-games and how to
win that particular sub-game.

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&& * N O T I C E * &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
Before I begin this walkthrough, make sure that you have at least read
the basics tutorial guide once. You get hold of Harvest Moon's basic
concepts otherwise you may be bombarded with numerous doubts.

Expectations:
As the walkthrough is simplified version, I myself expect you to chop
branches and stumps for lumber everyday. Get at least 20 pieces of
lumber per day. Upgrade your Ax ASAP to chop stumps. The speed of you
getting lumber determines how fast and efficient you are to complete
the game with a higher percentage. In other words, there is a lot of
effort needed to get a high percentage.

PLEASE read the basic guide thorough, especially on the livestock and
Tools section.
&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

I will try to go a bit more in-depth for the first year to help you to
get started. (I am writing from memory for your information...)

~ First year, spring 2nd ~
The Mayor will come to your farm and greet you. He will tell you that
at the end of third year, your performance on the farm will be
evaluated. Next he will ask you whether you want to go on a tour around
the village. Choose yes and you will be on good start-off on being
friends with the Mayor and Ellen.

After the tour, you will meet up with Zack, the deliveryman who will
pay you on the spot at 5pm where he collects the produce from the bin.

(It will be 8pm if you choose to go on a tour)

Now do cleaning on the farm with your sickle, hoe and Ax. You need to
eliminate weeds by picking them up and throw. As for stones, don't
destroy them instead keep them as a mini quarry for a part of your
farm. You will need them later for your cooking. You will find orange
branches where you can chop for lumber. Don't bother about those rocks,
large stones and stumps as your tools needs experience. The more often
you use the tool, the more experience you will gain for the tool. Next
form a crop 'field' to grow crops, preferred in the following formats:

[X] [_] [X]    [X][X][X]    [X][X][X]    [X][X][X]
[X] [X] [X] or [X][X][_] or [X][X][X] or [_][X][X]
[X] [X] [X]    [X][X][X]    [X][_][X]    [X][X][X]

Do four of these and water them with your watering can. You can fetch
water from the pond or the river stream. Now move across the wooden
plank near the stream and you will find a hot spring area. Collect the
blue herb and two bamboo shoots. Now go back to the henhouse (white
building) and deposit those produce inside the bin. You need to do a
lot of foraging for this season. Now go and get the last bamboo shoot
(behind the hot spring) and go down the alley where you find Gotz's
house. Now get a Blue Herb and a Moon-Drop flower. Enter Gotz's house 
and give the flower to Louis. It was his birthday!

Now collect the other flower and go up the pathway behind the house. 
You will find a cut-scene between Rick and Popuri. Talk to Rick and
he will ask you to take (Popuri) home. If you intend to woo Popuri, go
to the hot spring area and pick 'my sympathies' as your response.

Now move across the pathway towards northwest. Next move down the
pathway where you find the winery and the blacksmith shop. Now move down
the pathway and you will find fleet of buildings. They are Basil's
house, the library, Ellen's house and Mayor's house. Now move towards
right again.

You will find the Supermarket and the Clinic. Go inside the Supermarket,
you will find Jeff; the owner of the supermarket has problems with the
villages on credit terms. He is giving them too much credit! Next you
will meet (Karen) there. Tell Duke (the owner of the winery) to pay up
and it will raise your affection towards her. Exit and re-enter the
Supermarket get 4x Turnips seeds.

Exit the Supermarket and go the Clinic. You will have a cut-scene with
(Elli), the nurse working in the clinic. She will ask how's your wound,
pick it is 'excruciate' and she will give you a bandage. Next go to
the 'houses area'. You will have a cut-scene with her brother, Stu. He
is injured. Give Stu the bandage and Elli will like you more!

Now exit the clinic and go right again and you will find the Church
along with a small alleyway. [Perhaps, you will have a short cut-scene
between Karen and Rick]. Go near the Church and you will find a small
winding path that leads to a small tiny house. That is the house of
the harvest sprites! You can find seven of them there. Talk to them and
they are having a tea party in spring. Hence asking them to work is
pretty hard...

Now go back to the area where you find the Supermarket. You will find
a T-Junction at that area. Go and take the south path. You will find
the inn, known as Doug's Place. Enter it. You will have a cut-scene of
Doug asking you your opinions about his daughter (Ann). Pick 'She is
cute' and you will be on better relationships with Ann.

Next exit the Inn and go to Rose Square. You will find (Mary) and Gray
talking to each other. You will get your prompt from (Mary) when you
visit the library. Pick that 'you love reading' to get on better
relationships with Mary.

Now you need to make a TOUGH decision on deciding to woo, which girl
that you have met? Give the girl the Moon-Drop Flower. Refer to the
Girl's guide for more details.

(Hopefully, it hasn't reached 5pm)

Deposit the produce [the remaining bamboo shoot and blue herb!] into 
the bin. You will get 350G for the day.

Return back to your farm and enter your house. Get the Turnips seeds
from the Toolbox. Equip the Turnips seeds under the hand area. Now go
outside your farm and move the center of the a 'crop field'. Hit Square
to scatter the seeds. You will find 4 dots appearing on each tilled
land if it is done correctly.

Now go to the hot spring area (you will find Popuri here if you haven't
choose to go back to the hot spring earlier) and take a dip at the hot
spring. Place your controller on the ground and rest for 1 hour in the
game time. Hit X to wake up and X again to exit the hot spring. Go up
the path and facing the lake. You will find the Mother's Hill.

You will find a huge lake and a lot of tree stumps there. You will find
a *small winding path* and move across the bridge. Next you will find a
small ledge that allows you to enter the area in the middle.

Power Berry #1 - You will find a cedar tree on the right of the
flowerbed. Attempt to hit it with your Ax. You will find a tree spirit
pleading you not to chop the tree down. Choose 'not to' and you will get
the first power berry.

Now go back to the hot spring area. You will find a waterfall there,
which is called the Goddess Pond. Behind the waterfall leads to a mine,
enter the mine with the Hoe equipped on hand.

Power Berry #2 - Now hit Square to mine. Occasionally you will find
yourself collecting moneybags [worth 10G]. Look for ores! You can find
stones, copper ores, silver ores, gold ores or Mystrile ores. You will
find those rare and precious ores, as you go deeper into the mine. You
will find a pit-hole with a ladder, which leads to a lower level of the
mine. If you are lucky enough, you can get your second power berry.

Now return back to henhouse and deposit the ores. Go to the hot spring
and go for a second dip [*takes another hour of game-time*]. Now you
need to return back to the farm and carry on working (chopping
branches, remove weeds and move stones) until you have reached 4:30AM.
Go back to the spring area for another dip. [Another hour has passed
by.] Sleep when time reaches 5:50AM.

=-~ First year; spring 3rd ~-=
Get your Watering can, Hoe and Ax as your primary tools. Check the
weather forecast. Exit the house and you will have a cut-scene
between you and Harris. Harris says that he has found someone
suspicious and ask you to report to him when you find him. Next you
will find a Chinese merchant [Won] coming to your farm and take a
break.

Don't worry nothing will happen. ^_^;) Water your crops and clear
more land for another four 'crop fields'. Do your necessary foraging.
(I.e. collecting all bamboo shoots and blue herbs) Remember to get
the two moon-drop flowers found near Gotz's house and give it to
your girl. Of course, it would be better if you give them some 'love
it' gifts.

Do the quests on getting the horse or the fishing rod. (Please read
sub-quest for more details.) Give flowers + a special gift to your
girl and chop more wood for lumber. Your objective is to get around
400 lumber by the end of the first week. You can get more lumber logs
by fishing from the lake. 

To be continued...

[Sub-quests]
Due to the nature of these cut-scenes, I can't classify them under a
date. Therefore I have made a section for them. Please read them!

- Getting your pony (horse) from Yodel Ranch
It will not work on Mondays! You need to go towards that path during
morning till 3pm and you will have a cut-scene with Barley and May.
You will be prompted to take care of the horse. There you will be able
to name your horse. You will find it at your stable on the day. 
Remember to talk to it during that day. I would recommend you to let 
stay it in the stable for a couple of days until you have set a fence
for the horse.

- Goddess Meeting -> Power Berry #3
* Very important for a good head start in HM: BTN! *
IMO, this is really good if you want to get on fast terms with your
future wife. At the first week of your game-play, do not sell all
your turnips! (You need at least ten of them!). Go to the waterfall
on Sundays from 8am to 10am. Deposit the turnip into the pond (position
yourself behind the waterfall) and you will meet up with the Goddess!
Give her another four times and she will give you a Power Berry. Next
drop another 5 more turnips and she will ask you whether you have a 
sweetheart. Pick 'yes' and you will find your sweetheart coming to 
bath in the hot spring. (LOL) Attempt to enter the hot spring for a 
while and exit. Note that there is a monkey inside the hot spring... 
s for the rest, it is up to you to guess ^_^;) It would turn out
better if you managed to date the girl for the Goddess Festival...

- Getting Fishing Rod from Greg -> Power Berry #4
* Make sure that you have an extra slot to get the fishing rod. *
This quest can only be done if you managed to meet up with Greg the
fisherman. You will find him at the docks during Fridays, Saturdays
and Sundays from 8am to 10am and 8pm to 10pm. Talk to him and says that
you like to fish and he will give you a fishing rod. After you have
gotten the fishing rod, you can go for fishing! Just hit and hold
Square, as the bait reaches the water. As the line starts to vibrate,
release the Square button and you will get a fish or garbage. Getting
fish from the ocean is very hard, as it has been infested with garbage.
In other words, going to the lake in the Mother's Hill for fishing is
a good idea but the downside is that you can't catch large fish. If
you fish on the ocean, there are chances that you might catch a Power
Berry.

- Give 3 eggs everyday to Doug's Place from (Ann) in first year
This cut-scene will happen as soon as you have gotten 3 chickens that
lay eggs. Ann will come to your farm for business. Hopefully, your
rucksack is upgrade to the medium, as you need to store at least 3
eggs. Go to the Inn without holding any egg and you will get a cut-
scene of Ann taking and paying you the eggs.

* Under construction *

I would not bother to elaborate on the produce via planting as you can
find a detail crop information at 'Crops Guide'.

(-(-((Recipes))-)-)
** Brief Introduction **
In Harvest Moon: BTN, you will be able to 'cook' with the crops that
you have grown on farms or bought from the supermarket. Before you can
start cooking, you must be gotten the following requirements:

You must get the house upgrade for your house, which will be available
after you have upgraded your henhouse. For upgrading, please refer to
the basic tutorial for more details. For most of the recipes, you need
to have utensils! To get utensils and seasonings, you need to watch TV
Shopping every Saturday! (You will miss one if it falls on a festival) 
For details on how to buy utensils and seasonings, please refer to the
basic tutorial.

Of course, you need to get ingredients too. All of them can be grown 
and stored in your Icebox. BTW, store some stones that you have found 
in your farm. They are needed for cooking too!

If you got onto friendly terms with the villagers by offering them a 
gift, you can get a specific recipe from them along with the optional
ingredients.

** Winning the Cooking Festival **
There is a cooking festival in Spring 22nd of spring. If you remembered,
you will find Mayor Thomas making a visit to your farm and request for
three of a kind of a harvested crop like Cucumbers, Corn, etc. It is
pretty random, hence remember to store some inside your Icebox on the
future years.

=- Mayor Thomas' Request List -=
(I am not sure whether it is random or not)
1st year - 3x Turnips
2nd year - 3x Corn
3rd year - 3x Cucumbers
4th year - (I haven't reach this yet...)

In order to participate in cooking festival, you must get a homemade
dish (i.e. made from a recipe) and take it along with you to the Rose
Square between 10am and 5pm. BTW, did I say that you need to have a
Kitchen?

On the actual day of the cooking festival, go to the Rose Square and
talk to everyone. Your competitors are Sasha, Manna, Anna, Ann, Karen
and Doug. If you do not win the competition (LOL), either Doug and Ann
win the competition. They are great cooks! (Oh forget to mention Chef
of the Harvest Sprite). BTW, did you see Karen take a piece of
charcoal in every years of cooking festival?

=- How to win? -=
To win the festival, you need to put A LOT of extra ingredients for
your dish. However, there is also a point that you need to take note
of: the chances of you winning a competition when you presented the
same dish as any one of your competitors (exclude Karen) is very slim.
Hence try different variations every year. Refer to the recipe guide
below or more details on the additional seasonings. You will be
probably be surprised when I beat Doug (who use the Pizza for the
competition) with a plate of beefed-up fried rice in the 3rd year. Once
you are ready to participate, take the dish on the equip slot and talk
to Mayor Thomas. Next you need to wait for the Gourmet to taste your
dish... ('Wonderful' - wins the competition!)

Before I begin with the list, I will like to elaborate on what the
headings means:
[Ingredients] - this means the key ingredients to create the recipe
[Seasoning]   - this means the seasoning required to create the
                recipe
[Utensils]    - this means the utensils needed in order to create the
                recipe
[Optional]    - this indicates the optional ingredients [I], optional
                utensils [U] and optional seasonings [S] that you can
                add to the recipe. 
[Source]      - This indicates the source where I found the recipe.
*             - It is a 'cooked item' Please refer to its recipe on
                how get this. Some of cooked item can be used as
                ingredients for other recipe.
'             - Tested and guaranteed to work!
`             - Side notes about the recipe.
{}            - The chocolate can ONLY be obtained from girls with
                heart rating between purple to green during Winter
                Thanksgiving Day. Once you are married, you would not
                be able to get chocolate from girls!

      get 1 SUGDW Apple in the game from Won for 500G.

~ Scott's Debate: 80 recipes? Not possible... ~
Personally, I think that the list here is the complete list of recipes
with proof backup from Gameshark. Although in the game, there are
sufficient slots for at least 80 recipes, but through gameshark I have
only found 64 recipes (indirectly). For certain recipes such as Mixed
Juice, there are many different recipes to get it but they will only be
accounted as one. Some of food recipes such as Pasta, Roasted Corn and
Set Meal can only be bought from the Inn (Doug's Place) or Seaside
Lodge. You can't really cook them. There is a recipe that you can get
but not considered as a recipe - spa-boiled egg from Ann when you
deliver 3 eggs for a week.

Anyway, if you got any recipe or optional ingredients, you can e-mail
me and credits will be given to you.

Game Shark Codes
=======================================================================
Personally, I don't really like the idea of listing these codes under
this FAQ as using GS codes are as good as cheating. Use them unless
you are desperate in need for help!

Err... 
(I supposed that I am also one of those who are in desperate for help!)

Some words of honesty...
I myself did actually use these codes to test out the recipes and get
the power berry for 1001 medals at the Horse Race Festival.

For your information, in order to enter these GS codes, you need to get
a Gameshark Cheat Device, which I presume that you can bought one from
the shop where you buy your games. To enter the codes, I supposed that
you need to follow the manual or instruction booklet that comes with
the cartiage.

The following codes are not created by me. I have found these codes at
Gameshark Code Creators Club and the URL of their website is:

=-~ Equipped Item Modifier Codes ~-=
The fun thing about using GS codes is that you can modify the commands
that is unlikely to happen in the game. But sometimes it may cause the
game to hang (duh). Hence use them at your own risk!

These codes applies to the equip screen under the equip portion. You
will find seeds, 5 main tools and other equipment there. I would not
advise you make use of the Max item codes unless it is for seeds
otherwise the game might hang. (I haven't try to use the two above
codes, this is just my assumption.)

=-~ Gameshark Codes for Toolbox ~-=
You make use of these codes for the toolbox. It will be pretty
ridiculous to make use of maximum codes unless for seeds. The game
might hang if you use a non-equip item such as jewelry, crops, etc.
Hence enter at your own risk! The list of modifier digits is found
below the list.

* It seems a bit funny when the name of the item is called 'Group seeds
  - Spring', yet it gives you the requirement of getting Spinach seeds
  for Fall. In other words, when you use this code, it will appear as
  'Group seeds - Spring'. But after all, it is still a glitch.

Additional notes:
- Digits 63 onwards are discovered by myself ^_^;) Words that are in
  bracket are names that I give to the item [the actual name is very
  long...]
- Some of items will cause the game to hang like the Pocketstation
  modifier digit. Hence enter at your own risk.
- If you enter the codes with modifier digits from 140 onwards, the game
  will hang (duh).

BTW, don't request me for any more gameshark codes, as all the known
codes that I known are being listed in this FAQ already. If you want to
find more on how to use these codes, go and visit:

Cheats and Secrets
=======================================================================
This section contains information regarding the secrets and cheats for
the game. Anyway, below is a short list of cheats:

*Duplication Trick*
I would like to stress that this is NOT a GS cheat. This cheat will
ONLY work if you have two separate memory cards. You need to have two
memory cards.

(1) You must have saved your game in first memory card. Make sure that
    you have some animals in that save file. 
(2) Use the memory manager to copy your saved file from memory card 1
    to memory card 2.
(3) Load the game as usual. Choose 'Continue' and pick any saved file
    that you preferred to have more animals.
(4) Once the game has loaded the saved file, go to the bedroom and
    examine the diary. Pick the fourth option i.e. 'Exchange Animals"
    ** Do not remove the memory cards! **
(5) You will be able to perform a trade. Exchange all animals from the
    other saved file to the saved file that you are loading. I.e. if
    you are loading from the saved file in Memory Card 1, choose to
    transfer all animals from Memory Card 2 to Memory Card 1. You can
    sell the animals (talking to Barley or Lillia during their
    working hours) and earn quick cash!

(Please take note you can have only the maximum of 20 barn animals and
 10 chickens).

Contact The Author - E-mail Policy
=======================================================================
All webmasters and readers to this FAQ need to read this before you
attempt to contact the author. If the guidelines listed here are not
found, I will not reply your e-mails.

=-~ The Pain of being a FAQ Writer ~-=
The reason for these numerous grammatical errors is due to WordPad's
word wrap setting. You will find a 'View' command on the command
toolbar of Word Pad. Select the 'Options' command under the 'View'
menu. You will find a window, which contained the following options:
 ______________________________________________________
| Options | Text | Rich Text | Word | Write | Embedded |

Now you need to select the Text tab and you will find that the option
boxes that say "Wrap to window" and "Wrap to ruler" are not selected.
Instead by default, you will find "No wrap" option is being selected.
This means that all the sentences will be spanned across the entire
window and you will find the bottom scroll bar. This also makes FAQ
writers cannot use the Tab key. Therefore to resolve this problem, we
have to use the 'Enter' key to make the FAQ within a specific margin
hence causing these numerous grammatical errors.

But I could admit that my previous FAQs are pretty bad, as I have typed
the FAQ without using a FAQ processor if you take a look at my FF8
FAQ/Walkthroughs. Hopefully, you could understand me.

BTW, please do not rush me to finish up the FAQ. We, FAQ writers are
not being paid for what we are doing. Besides I am a really busy fellow,
as I need to go for school. I could only finish up my FAQs when I got
free time but most of the time, I would rather spent it on playing
games.

Okay, let's get onto the guidelines:

I have decided to re-enforce my guidelines with stricter rules:

(Webmasters)
If you intend to host this FAQ, make sure that you do get the latest
updates from GameFAQs. I will not send any updates to anyone besides
GameFAQs. If you want to be notified of the earliest updates as
possible, you can add the following sentence or something similar:

"Please notify me of the latest updates"

I will e-mail to you when Jeff, the Webmaster of GameFAQs, has uploaded
the FAQ for viewing. When request to host this FAQ, make sure you
include the following:
1) Your website's name
2) Your website's URL

Next, you need to receive my authorization. Upon receiving my
authorization, I will visit your website monthly to see whether you
have upload the latest revisions of your FAQ. If you managed to do this
within 2 months, your site's name will be added to the list of
websites. After your website's name have been added, if you stopped
continue updating the FAQ, I will demand you to remove the FAQ from
your site and added your site's name to a blacklisted list!

You are not entitled to edit the FAQ. If you make any changes, I will
add your site's name to the Plagiarist section!

(Readers)
When send me a question, please do the following:

Please use the same e-mail address that you intend to receive the e-
mail. Make sure that the question you intend to ask is in as much
details as possible. Please add the subject with the title of the game
and its current revision. Don't send me e-mails with HTML format and
attachments; simple text e-mail will be fine. Please do not use
CAPSLOCK, as I will delete it upon initial viewing of the e-mail. If
the guidelines are followed, you will be receiving your responses in
three days to a week's time. (I am pretty busy for your information.)

If you have anything need to complain about the FAQ, please notify me
and I will make the necessary changes. For those who intend to submit
me information about this game, please follow the guidelines too.

If you cannot find the information, just make use of the WordPad's
search mode to find it.
