  Walkthrough by vgamegirl
  Game: Harvest Moon: Back to Nature (PSX)
  Current Version: 2.4
  Last Updated: February 10, 2004

  Revisions:
    Version 2.4-(February 10, 2004) Wow, long time since my last 
                 update. I added a few more cutscenes emailed to me
                 by various people (all credited in the Credits 
                 section), and rectified a few requirements in some
                 of the cutscenes.

    Version 2.3-(April 18, 2003) Been awhile since my last update. I 
                 know I said I'd be neglecting this for awhile, at 
                 least until Summer, but Lady_Nocturne emailed me info
                 regarding the PAL marriage glitch-it's avoidable! See
                 the marriage section for more info

    Version 2.2-(February 1, 2003)Minor update, added two cutscenes

    Version 2.1-(January 29, 2003) Been awhile since last update. 
                 Anyway, I added some new cutscenes and corrected 
                 Cliff's Birthday (I had said Spring 6, when it's 
                 really Summer 6) and fixed a couple other errors

    Version 2.0-(October 25, 2002) Added some cutscenes (many 
                 contributers, see credits section). Also, instead of
                 having cutscenes listed under the girls' section and 
                 character events, they all are under Character Events.

                 Also added Rumors and Myths section, along with Other 
                 Secrets and Codes section under Extras. Made some 
                 corrections elsewhere.

    Version 1.9-(August 9, 2002) Made some corrections in the character
                events section. Added www.cheatcc.com to the list of 
                sites that can display this guide. I need some more
                character events, so if you have any that I haven't 
                listed, please email me!

    Version 1.8-(August 2, 2002) Added more character events

    Version 1.7-(July 11, 2002)Added more cutscenes to Character

    Version 1.5-(July 10, 2002)Added www.neoseeker.com to the list of 
                sites that may display this guide. Added character 
                events section.

    Version 1.0-(July 9, 2002)My first release

 |___________________________________________________________|

  A decade ago, you were to go on vacation with your father. 
  Unfortunatly, he had a business trip and you had to cancel your plans.
  Instead, you went to your grandfather's farm. Your grandfather told 
  you that he was busy, unable to play and entertain you. So, by 
  yourself, you went off and played.

  One day, you met a girl, and played with her and instead of by 
  yourself. You had fun, and when you had to go back home, you promised 
  her that you would come back.

  Ten years later, you come to the farm. Your grandfather has passed 
  away, and the farm is a mess. You have three years to fix up the farm 
  and make friends with the villagers. One question nags at you, 
  however: what happened to the girl to whom you promised your return?

     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Harvest Sprites~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
     These chracters provide you with services for little pay. You can 
     hire them to harvest your crops, water your crops, or take care of 
     your animals. If you want to keep your farm going, you need these 
     guys for times like hurricanes where you can't go outside, but they 
     can take care of your chickens.

     However, it's a good idea to pay them in some way. Bread, Riceballs, 
     and Wine are good gifts.

     Chef (Red)-Fall 14
     Nappy (Orange)-Winter 22
     Hoggy (Yellow)-Fall 9
     Timid (Green)-Summer 16
     Staid(Blue)-Spring 15
     Aqua (Aqua)-Spring 26
     Bold (Purple)-Spring 4

     What they can do (one job per sprite)
     -Harvest Crops
     -Water Crops
     -Take Care of Animals
     It may take awhile for them to finish their assigned task, so on a 
     day when you know you'll need to harvest ten fields of Pineapples, 
     hire some for that, some for watering, and take care of your animals 
     yourself. They do get better at their jobs, after about a year or so, 
     provided that you keep hiring them.

     --Relaxation Tea Leaves--
     During spring go to the Harvest Sprites house between 2PM - 4PM. Give 
     a present to each of them to be invited to their tea party. You'll get 
     Relaxation Tea Leaves. ~Note-You can't get more Relaxation Tea Leaves 
     until you've used the ones you have. If you put it in a recipe, you 
     can get more, you just can't have it as a basic ingrediant.

 |          VI-The Tools                                     |
 |___________________________________________________________|

  Tools are very important in this game, so you need to know how to use 
  them in order to get anything done. Unless it is a crop, anything that 
  goes in the upper section of the rucksack will be here. The experience 
  level is based on how many times you use it. You could go inside a 
  building and swing at nothing for awhile until your character gets 
  tired to raise to experience percentage, then go to the Hot Spring and 
  repeat. While this can be very effective, you get more experience using 
  to tool for its purpose, such as cutting weeds or grass.

  Each of your tools (that can be upgraded) have the same requirements. 
  So, rather than post the same thing several times, I'm putting it here.

    Upgrades
       a.)Copper-Requires at least 100% of experience. To upgrade to copper, 
          you must have 1000g and a copper ore.
       b.)Silver-Requires at least 200% of experience. To upgrade to silver, 
          you must have 2000g and a silver ore.
       c.)Gold-Requires at least 300% of experience. To upgrade to gold, 
          you must have 3000g and a gold ore.
       d.)Mystrile-Requires 400% of experience. To upgrade to mystrile, 
          you must have 5000g and a mystrile (blue) ore.

  If you don't know how to get or where to find the ores, check XI-Mining.

  1.)Hoe
     The hoe is used to till the soil, and if you have grass growing, to 
     remove it. The basic, un-upgraded hoe is free, and found in the toolbox 
     inside your house.

     Upgraded:
       -Basic-Tills one square in front of you
       -Copper-Tills two squares in front of you
       -Silver-Tills three squares in front of you
       -Gold-Tills four squares in front of you
       -Mystrile-Tills five squares in front of you

  2.)Hammer
     The hammer is used to break stones and broken fences (lumber). The 
     basic, un-upgraded hammer is free, and found in the toolbox inside 
     your house.

     Upgrading Differences (Number of hits to break)
     Note: All hammers can break a broken lumber fence in one hit. 
     (S. Stone means Small Stone, L. Stone means Large Stone) Rocks and 
     Large Stones are different. Large Stones are a solid gray and their 
     shape sort of ressembles a rounded-square. 

       Model    | S. Stone | L. Stone | Rock
       Basic    |  1       |   --     |  --
       Copper   |  1       |   3      |  --
       Silver   |  1       |   2      |  5
       Gold     |  1       |   1      |  3
       Mystrile |  1       |   1      |  1

  3.)Watering Can
     The watering can is used to water your crops. Upgrades are really 
     useful for the watering can, so if grow several crops, get the 
     upgrade.The basic, un-upgraded watering can is free, and found in 
     the toolbox inside your house.

     Upgrading Differences (Number of squares watered)

       Model    | Squares Watered |
       Basic    |      1          |
       Copper   |    1 x 3        |
       Silver   |    2 x 3        |
       Gold     |    3 x 3        |
       Mystrile |    3 x 5        |

  4.)Sickle
     The Sickle is used to cut grass and remove crops. Unless you grow 
     lots of grass, the upgraded sickle isn't really nescessary. The 
     basic, un-upgraded sickle is free, and found in the toolbox inside 
     your house.

     Upgrading Differences (Number of squares cut)

       Model    | Squares Cut |
       Basic    |      1      |
       Copper   |    1 x 3    |
       Silver   |    2 x 3    |
       Gold     |    3 x 3    |
       Mystrile |    3 x 5    |

  5.)Ax
     The Ax is used to cut tree stumps and branches, and at least one 
     upgrade is essential to getting married (unless you have all the 
     cash required to purchase enough lumber, which is a hefty sum. 
     After you get some usage, upgrade. The basic, un-upgraded ax is 
     free, and found in the toolbox inside your house.

     Upgrading Differences (Strikes to break Stumps and Branches)

       Model    | Branch | Stump |
       Basic    |   1    |  --   |
       Copper   |   1    |  6    |
       Silver   |   1    |  3    |
       Gold     |   1    |  2    |
       Mystrile |   1    |  1    |

  After you get an upgraded tool, to use it you need to hold the 
  square button down a bit longer for each upgrade, meaning that 
  with an Ax upgraded to the Gold level, you can still perform the 
  basic Ax's cut.

  How do you tell if you are holding on long enough? Well, the 
  Copper and Silver upgrades' effects vary from tool to tool, so 
  just hold it down a little while. For the Gold upgrade, your face 
  turns red. At Mystrile level, your face is red and you get stress 
  marks on your head.

  Basically, if you use a tool frequently, upgrade it, as this saves 
  both time and stanima.

 |___________________________________________________________|

  Power Berris increase your stanima level. If you do lots of 
  work using your tools, eating Power Berries will prove very 
  useful, as that is less trips to the Hot Spring to recover. 
  There are 10 different Powerberries.

  1.)Try to cut down the tree on Mother's Hill (over the bridge, 
    in the middle of the field), and the tree or tree's spirit 
    will talk to you, saying it is one hundred years old, and 
    asks you if you are going to cut it down. Say that you won't 
    cut it, and you'll get a Power Berry.
    *Warning*-If you attempt to cut the tree again, you'll end 
    up in the Hospital.

  2.)Mine in the mine behind the waterfall. Eventually you'll 
    get a Power Berry.

  3.)Mine in the Winter Mine, eventually you'll get a Power Berry.

  4.)Win the Opening Day (Swimming Festival) in Summer. (For tips, 
    see Festivals)

  5.)Throw five crops into the Goddess Pond while standing behind 
    the waterfall, and the Goddess will give you a Power Berry. 
    (This can be done all on one day, or on different days)

  6.)Buy one off the TV Shopping Network after you've gotten all 
    of the utensils.

  7.)Exchange 1001 medals for one at the Horse Race (See Festivals 
    for tips)

  8.)Fish in the Ocean, eventually you'll get a Power Berry. *Tip*
    During the Opening Day (Swimming) Festival, bring your rod/pole 
    along and fish before the contest starts.

  9.)During Winter, go to the Winter Mine, but not inside it. On the
    left outside wall, press X to find a Power Berry. (Note-It may 
    take some time to find it, but it is there)

  10.)Plant more than 90 flowers at your farm. When they bloom, Anna 
    will come by. Tell her she can have as many as she wants, and you 
    will get a Power Berry.

 |___________________________________________________________|

 A.)Animals

   Cows
     Cows have been in Harvest Moon games from the beginning in the 
     original Super Nintendo Harvest Moon (still one of my favorites!). 
     Cows need to be brushed (available at the Blacksmith), fed (cut 
     grass), and talked to everyday. I wouldn't advise getting a cow as 
     your first animal, start with a chicken. If you decide you are 
     ready to deal with a cow, make sure you have a reasonable amount of 
     grass, enough gold to buy a brush, and enough for the cow itself, 
     at 6,000 gold.

     After you get your cow, talk to it, feed it, and brush it everyday. 
     If you watch the weather and know that you can't go outside the 
     next day (snow storm, hurricane), get a Harvest Sprite to take care 
     of your animals. When you can afford it, buy a milker (from the 
     Blacksmith), to add to your daily income. If you can afford the 
     pricey investment of the Cheesemaker (20,000 gold), buy it, as it 
     is worth it (see chart below)

     The higher your cows' hearts are, the better quality milk/cheese they 
     produce: (The Grand/Gold Milk/Cheese can only be made by winning the 
     Cow Festival (see below))

     Item    |   Small   |   Medium  |   Large   |   Grand/Gold   |
     Milk    |   100 G   |   150 G   |   200 G   |   300 G        |
     Cheese  |   300 G   |   400 G   |   500 G   |   600 G        |

     To produce Golden/Grand milk/cheese, you need to win the Cow Festival.
     Basically, you need to have 10 Hearts on your cow for it to win, 
     making it unlikely that you'll win the first year, although it can be 
     done (I think) without exchanging animals.

     Letting your cows outside "supposedly" raises the heart levels quicker, 
     but I wouldn't advise wasting your time. Once they are outside, it 
     takes a while to get them back in, so, don't waste your time.

   Chickens
     Another classic animal from the Harvest Moon series, the chicken is 
     the first animal you should buy. Feed it everyday with either the 
     Chicken feed that can be purchased at Poultry Farm, or grow your 
     own (grow Corn and throw it into the water wheel, and *PRESTO*, you 
     have Chicken feed). Chickens cost 1,500 G and can be bought from 
     Poultry Farm, or you can use the egg from Popuri to hatch a chick 
     which will grow into a Chicken.

     Chickens don't require much care, just feed them everyday, and on 
     days you are unavailable (wedding, snow storm, hurricane), hire a 
     Harvest Sprite to take care of them. If you feed them everyday, 
     they'll produce eggs which are either normal quality, good quality, 
     excellent quality, or golden/grand quality. (Gold/Grand are only 
     produced after that chicken has won the Sumo-Chicken festival. 

     The prices of the regular eggs don't vary unless they are Gold/
     Grand quality. When you can afford it, invest in the Mayonnaise 
     Maker (20,000 G from the Blacksmith), because it will pay for 
     itself if you give it time.

     Item  |   N/S    |   G/M   |   E/L    |   G/G   |
     Egg   |   50 G   |   50 G  |   50 G   |   150 G |
     Mayo  |   100 G  |   150G  |   200 G  |   300 G |

     *Tip*-If you have the time, use the Hot Spring the get Spa-Boiled 
           Eggs, which sell for 80 G.

     Sumo Chicken Festival-This doesn't require any skill, but the way to 
     is to have 10 Hearts on the chicken you decide to enter.

   Dog
     Your Dog is with you from the beginning, when he is puppy, but he'll 
     grow up to be a full grown dog in two seasons, in time for the Dog 
     Race. Pick up your dog everyday, and once it is full grown and you 
     have bought the ball (100 G) from Won, play fetch everyday, and 
     whistle for it. Make it jump over fences sometimes, and never leave 
     it outside.

     Dog Race-There are several things you can do to improve your 
     chances in the Dog Race:
        a.)Get its Heart Level up, or it won't work with you.
        b.)Whistle for your dog everyday, sometimes have it jump over 
           fences.
        c.)Play with the ball once you get it, and follow these guidlines:
            -Never throw the ball inside buildings, it could get stuck
            -Never throw the ball in the basket
            -Never throw the ball in the water
            -Never throw it in the Shipping Bin
            -Never throw it at an animal
        If one of these incidents occurs, either restart the day, or wait 
        for Won to sell you another.

     Puppies!
        Sometime in the second year, Barley will ask to borrow your dog. 
        Say yes, and your dog will be brought to Yodel Ranch for a few
        weeks, but don't abandon your dog. Make sure to hug it at least 
        every other day if you can. Soon, your dog and Hana (the dog at 
        Yodel Ranch will have puppies. You can't keep any, but you can 
        give one away, then you'll get your dog back.

   Horse
     You get your horse on your first visit to Yodel Ranch. Barley and May 
     will be looking at a pony, and after some talk, you can have the pony!
     Buy the brush ASAP, and brush your horse everyday. Don't leave your 
     horse outside on rainy, snowy, or hurricane days. However, your horse 
     should be outside. I recommend building a small pen (4 x 4 or 5 x 5), 
     right infront of the stable so the by moving one log, you have a direct 
     passage to the stable from the pen. Keep your horse inside the pen, and 
     the day before a bad-weather day, remove a log and push your horse into 
     the stable. This could take a while.

     To get a high heart level, do the following:
        -Whistle for your horse
        -Brush your horse everyday
        -Talk to your horse
        -Don't leave it outside on bad-weather days

     Horse Race-To win the horse race, get a high heart level by doing the 
     above, and once your horse is full grown, ride it around the ranch.

     If you don't have a happy horse (8+ hearts by the end of the year), 
     Barley will take your horse away. However, if you plant lots of grass, 
     you can get you another pony. I would advise keeping your horse for 
     three reasons:
       -Each heart your horse has is 1% towards your percentage
       -Win the Horse Race
       -Full grown horse has saddlebags, you can throw crops into the 
         saddle bags as if you were putting them into the Shipping Bin.

   Fish
     You can catch fish either in the Ocean or in the river that runs 
     through your farm using the fishing pole. To get the fishing pole, go 
     to the dock (at the beach) between 7-10 in the morning or at night on 
     Friday, Saturday, or Sunday and talk to Greg. Make sure you have an 
     empty slot for tools that you are carrying. Talk to Greg (fisherman) 
     and he'll give you a rod.

     To use the rod, stand facing the water. Equip and cast the line, make 
     sure you keep the button held. When the line starts jerking, or if you 
     have a dualshock controller, when it starts shaking, release the 
     button quickly. It may take time, but eventually you'll catch 
     something. If it is trash, either give it to May or throw it in the 
     garbage can at Rose Square. Eventually, (hopefully) you should catch
     a fish, either small, medium, or large.

     To breed your fish, once you catch one, put it in your pond, and if 
     you want to, continue catching fish. Go to the Supermarket and buy 
     Fish Food (20 G per unit). It will be stored near the pond on your 
     farm. Throw the food into the pond. However, unlike other animals, 
     you only need to throw one unit in per day. You could have one fish, 
     you can have 25, you still only need one unit per day.

     To breed your fish, make sure they are fed EVERYDAY. In a couple of 
     weeks, you will notice your number of fish start to increase. Once 
     you have 50 fish, Greg, the Fisherman, will give you a fishing pole.

     Pricing:

     Small    50 G
     Medium   120 G
     Large    200 G

     Large fish can be caught ONLY in the ocean. *Tip*-On Opening Day 
     (Swimming Festival), bring your rod or pole along and fish in the 
     ocean, because you have unlimited time.

     For info on the Legendary Fish, see Extras, Legendary Fish.

   Sheep
     The sheep should be the last animal (type) you buy. After you buy 
     one, get a brush and clippers soon. Talk, feed, and brush it 
     everyday. Sheep cost 4000 G.

     For the Sheep Festival, try to get a sheep with 10 Hearts to 
     enter. Remember, sheep without wool can't be entered, so when 
     the festival draws near, don't sheer the sheep you want to enter.
     Sheep aren't able to be sheered everyday. It takes several days 
     to grow back the wool.

     Also, when you can afford it, invest in the Yarn Maker from the 
     Blacksmith (20,000 G + Adaminite Ore). The Yarn Maker is a good 
     investment:

     Item    |  Small  |  Medium  |  Large  |  Gold/Grand  |
     Wool    |  100 G  |  400 G   |  500 G  |  600 G       |
     Yarn    |  300 G  |  700 G   |  800 G  |  1,000 G     |

 B.)Crops

   Crops are a very good money-making source of Harvest Moon: BTN. 
   Grow them in fields like:

   a.)  X| |X       b.)  X|X|X
        X|X|X            X|X|X
        X|X|X            X|X|X

   Plant like Diagram A (or any rotation of it) if you don't have an 
   upgraded Watering Can, Diagram B if you have ANY Watering Can 
   upgrades.

   If you have a Hot House, you can plant any plants in any season 
   inside the Hot House, otherwise, don't sow seeds out of season. 
   You can buy seeds from either the SuperMarket or Won. (Some seeds 
   have special requirements before you can buy them)

   If, under Days to Grow, there is a number comma number (9,6), then 
   it takes 9 days to grow, 6 days to regenerate. The renewable crops 
   are ones that grow, you can harvest it, but part of the plant is 
   still there, and it'll regrow.

    Recommend-Buy two bags of turnips and a bag of cucumbers on the 
    first day, and plant them (and water them). Even though in the 
    long run, cucmubers are the most profitable outdoors, you should 
    also have turnips because they don't take long to grow and they'll 
    get you some cash to help you get started.

 A.)Places


   Your Farm
   ---------
     Most of your time is spent at your farm, where you grow 
     crops, take care of your animals, and more!

     House-This is where you basically live: you sleep here, have a TV, 
     eventually you can have a kitchen and a fireplace. Every extension 
     has ther items that are in it before the extension, example-the 
     TV is in the original house, and the last extension.

     Original House

      Calendar-Look at the calendar for importent dates, and it changes 
        season to season.
      Toolbox-Your tools that aren't being carried are stored here, since 
        when you start you can't carry nine different tools.
      Bookshelf-Press X while facing the bookshelf for controller 
        configuration options.
      Television-Your TV is very important. You can see different shows, 
        depending on the day:

        Up-Weather forecast (This is the default channel that you start 
           on). This tells you what the weather of the next day will be, 
           so you can plan your activities accordingly.
        Down-Life on the Farm. Life on the Farm is a show that goes 
           through all the basics day by day, and is very helpful if you 
           are new to the game. Watch it daily if this is your first 
           time.
        Right-News. This channel talks about upcoming events, such as 
           festivals to remind you about them.
        Left-The show depends on the day of the week:
           Monday: The Fairy and Me-Basically, it's a love story that 
             has to do with a special book. Has no purpose as far as I 
             know.
           Tuesday: The Delicious Hour-Introduces new recipies weekly for 
             cooking (you can't cook without a kitchen-1st house upgrade)
           Wednesday:The Song Hour-Has songs with lyrics that give info 
             about farming 
           Thursday: Star One Sports-A show that covers sporting events, 
             none of which happen in Mineral Town
           Friday: Mechabot Ultror-Cartoon that is like a comic book
           Saturday:What's Your Passion-A show about people's hobbies 
               (If you have gotten the first house upgrade, this show 
                turns into TV Shopping Network)
                   -TV Shopping Network-Show that lets you order various 
                    cooking utensils
           Sunday: The Shogi Hour-Boring chess-like game

     First House Extension
     ---------------------
      Refrigerator-Stores items for later use, with 64 slots, 99 of each 
        item can fit in one slot. If the item can be eaten, it goes in 
        here,
      Cabinet-Same as refrigerator, but stores non-perishable items. If 
        you can't eat it, put it in here.
      Kitchen Area-By facing the counter in the kitchen area (near the 
        fridge) you can cook. Recipes are learned mostly from people or 
        the Delicious Hour

     Second House Extension
     ----------------------
      Vase-You can buy this from Won the morning your house has finished 
        being enlarged. It goes in the bedroom, and when you put flowers 
        in it it restores stanima.
      Fireplace-In Winter, you can put lumber in this to make a fire; it 
        also restores stanima.

A.)The Girls

   During the course of the game, you should start looking for the 
   girl you once knew.

   Once you start giving girls to a girl, you can check on how much she 
   likes you. When she talks to you (assuming it isn't a cutscene), on 
   the bottom right corner of the dialogue box there is a heart, which 
   is an indicator on how much she likes you based on the color and size 
   of the heart:

   Black- Strangers
   Purple-Indifferent
   Blue-Friends
   Green-They have a little crush
   Yellow-They have a slightly bigger crush
   Orange-They have a big crush
   Red-They love you(marry them!)

   Ann
     Ann is tomboy with a father is fears she may never get married.

B.)Marriage and Baby

   ~~~~~~~~~~In Order To Get Married~~~~~~~~~~~

   To get married, you must have met the following requirements:
     -Enlarged House
     -Red Heart on the bride-to-be
     -Blue Feather

   Enlarged House
     First of all, you need to have the second house extention, and 
     therefore need to have other extentions completed first:

     Chicken Coop Extention
       Cost-5,000 G
       Wood-420
       Effect-Enlarges Chicken Coop, so that you can have 10 Chickens 
         instead of 5. Required to get the Mayonnaise Maker.

     House Extention
       Cost-4,700 G
       Wood-370 G
       Effect-Enlarges your home, adding a stove, refrigerator, and 
          cabinet. Required for cooking.

     Barn Extention
       Cost-6,800 G
       Wood-500
       Effect-Adds another breeding station, and holds 20 Cows and 
          Sheep (combined). Required for Yarn Maker and Cheese Maker.

     2nd House Extention
       Cost-10,000 G
       Wood-750
       Effect-Makes the bedroom a seperate room, adds another bed, 
          changes kitchen orientation around, allows Won to sell 
          you a vase, and YOU ARE NOW ABLE TO GET MARRIED (assuming 
          you've met the other requirements)

   Red Heart
     When you talk to a girl eligible for marriage, on the lower right 
     corner of the dialogue there is a heart, which indicates her 
     feelings toward you. As the color changes to the next level, 
     the size of the heart will grow.
        -Black (Small)-Strangers
        -Purple-Indifferent
        -Blue-Friends
        -Green-Little Crush
        -Yellow-Bigger Crush
        -Orange-Huge Crush
        -Red (Huge)-In love, waiting for the Blue Feather
      To make the heart grow, give her gifts that she likes, and make 
      sure you think about your answer when she throws a question at you.
      (For more info on character events, along with likes and dislikes, 
      see above)
      *IMPORTENT*-Some TV screens mess up the color Orange, making it 
      look RED. The Blue Feather can be bought when Heart is ORANGE.

   Blue Feather
     Just because you have the Blue Feather doesn't mean you can marry. 
     You can get the Blue Feather when any girl has an orange heart. 
     The Blue Feather may be obtained in two ways:
        -Won comes to your farm, and tries to sell it for 30,000 G. 
         (DON'T BUY)
        -At the Supermarket for 1,000 G. (BUY)

     Once you have the 2nd house extention and a red heart on your 
     sweetheart, equip the Blue Feather and go find her.

     How do you know if she accepts? Sometimes it's hard to tell by 
     the dialogue. There are two ways to check:
       -Are you still holding the Blue Feather? If no, then her 
        response was a "yes".
       -On your calender, is there a heart on the day a week from 
        the day of proposal? If yes, then she accepted.

   ~~~~~~~~~~Wedding Day~~~~~~~~~~~

   On the day of your wedding, a week after you proposed, you are 
   unable to do anything the day of the ceremoney. Therefore, you 
   should hire the Harvest Sprites to help you.

   After the wedding, your wife will ask you what you want to be 
   refered to as, "Dear", "Honey", or "Darling". Your choice.

   **IMPORTENT**-On the PAL version of this game, the screen may go 
   black, and the game will stop. However, I've heard that the newer 
   PAL versions have corrected this.

   Thanks to Lady_Nocturne for her email about how to prevent the
   glitch:

   1.)Propose to the girl on the 23rd of any season (you still need
     all the regular requirements for marriage)
   2.)The day prior to your wedding, overwork (so you end up in the
     clinic)
   3.)When you wake up, you'll be in the clinic; the marriage cutscene
     follows
   4.)The next day, the regular nickname part follows (this is where it
     usually freezes) but if you followed the steps, it won't freeze.

   ~~~~~~~~~~Pregnancy~~~~~~~~~~~
   No, get those nasty ideas out of your head. Harvest Moon games 
   are FAMILY games, you really think that would be included?

   The Harvest Moon way of this process is to give your wife gifts 
   everyday. Eventually you'll get hints like "I feel sick".

   About two seasons later, your wife will give birth. You get to 
   name your baby boy (all babies are boys). Now your newborn 
   will go through the following stages:

   Newborn
     Can't really do much with a newborn, but the Heart Level appears 
     on the status screen. You cannot pick it up or give it gifts yet.

     6:00am - 1:00pm: Mother is holding him
     1:00pm - 6:00am: In Mother's bed

   Crawling
     It takes about a year for your baby to reach this stage. Now 
     you can pick him up and give presents. Like everyone else, he 
     has likes and dislikes.

     Great Gifts: Hot Milk, Strawberry Milk, Honey, Wild Grapes, Ice 
       Cream, Cheesecake, Noodles, Cake.

     Good Gifts: Pineapple, Fruit Juice, Apple, Chocolate Cake, Yarn, 
       Flowers, Milk, Apple, Carrot, Omelet, Vegetable Juice, Mixed 
       Juice, Tomato Juice, Orange Cup Flowers.

     Bad Gifts: Ores, Wine, Lumber, Green Grass, Blue Grass, Chicken 
       Feed, Fodder, Garbage, Oil.

     Terrible Gifts: Fish Bones, Cookies, Pizza, Corn, Curry, Green 
       Peppers, Eggplant, Potato, Fish, Sashimi, Red Grass, Mushroom 
       Rice, Cheese Fondue, Cabbage, Onions, Truffle Rice, Butter, Cheese, 
       Pickles.

   Walking and Talking
      About three seasons after the crawling stage, your baby can walk 
      and talk, but all he says is gibberish. This is the last stage.

 |             XI-Mining                                     |
 |___________________________________________________________|

 Mining can be very profitable, especially once you get the Shipping 
 Bin to bring along. Go into one of the mines described below and 
 use you hoe to dig. You can find various ores, Powerberries, and 
 the recipe for Ketchup. Sometimes you will mine up manholes, go 
 down them once you find them. The farther down you go, the more 
 likely you are to find rarer items.

 Waterfall Mine
 Location-Behind the Waterfall at Goddess Pond
 When Accessable-All year
 What You Can Find-
    Item              Sold For
    Junk Ore          1G
    Bags of Gold      10G*
    Copper Ore        15G
    Silver Ore        20G
    Gold Ore          25G
    Mystrile Ore      30G
    Powerberry        --
      *When you find a bag of gold, you automatically get 10G added 
       to your money

 Winter Mine
 Location-Across the lake at the base of Mother's Hill
 When Accessable-Winter ONLY
 What You Can Find-
    Item              Sold For
    Junk Ore          1G
    Bags of Gold      10G*
    Mystrile Ore      30G
    Orichalcum Ore    50G
    Adamantite Ore    50G
    Powerberry        --
    Ketchup Recipe    --**
      *When you find a bag of gold, you automatically get 10G added 
       to your money
      **The recipe is located on a board that you can pick up. Using 
       triangle, read it
    IMPORTANT-Unlike the Waterfall Mine, this mine DOES have a bottom. 
    Once you get there, there is a passageway you can go through. A 
    lake in the next room. Fish for a Powerberry or the Catfish. Use 
    a fishing POLE for better results.

 Tips and Other Mining Info

    -Buy the Shipping Basket ASAP. Once you get it, you can put 30 
     ores inside it. Just put stuff like Gold, Mysterile, and (only 
     if your getting low on stanima) Silver and Copper. This will 
     start to net a high income in just one trip, and usually two 
     or three can be made a day!
     *Note*-When proceeding down the manholes, be sure to pick up 
      the Shipping Basket. If you leave it, and go down a floor, 
      to get it back, you need to get back to whatever floor you 
      were on when it was left behind.
    -To exit the mine, just walk to the ladder, and you'll get a 
     prompt asking if you want to go up it. Pick yes and you'll 
     go all the way to the top and outside.
    -Watch your stanima! Once your character falls down or sits down, 
     call it quits! Take a journey to the Hot Spring, or drink/eat 
     something to recover your stanima.
    -Nothing good is found on the perimeter of the mine. Always dig 
     at least one square in.
    -Manholes are usually not near the ladders. Instead, dig on the 
     opposite side of the mine from the ladder.
    -Use money bags as cues to where the manhole might be. Usually 
     valuable ores and the manholes are near moneybags.

 |___________________________________________________________|

 This section includes other items that go in the "Tools" section of 
 your rucksack, along with other items that may or may not be able to 
 be carried around.

 --Tools That Can Be Upgraded--
    These tools are ones you start out with, and can be upgraded to be 
    more effecient. For more information on these, see section VI- Tools.

    Axe-Chops branches and (Copper or better) can cut stumps. The wood is 
      transferred to your wood bin, where it can be used as fence posts 
      or for upgrades.

    Hammer-Breaks stones, Copper or better can split larger stones, but 
      silver is required to break the boulders. Also can pound broken 
      fences.

    Sickle-Cuts grass and crops. I reccommend getting it upgraded if you 
      have many crops.

           basket, then transferred to the Shipping Bin. Very useful

           foraging (especially in the Fall).

 |___________________________________________________________|

 To get an extension, you must split stumps (requires a Copper Ax or 
 better) or buy the lumber from Gotz (very pricey, 50 G a PIECE!!). 
 You must also have the money required to build it.

 Once you've met the requirements, go talk to Gotz (the woodcutter), 
 and ask for the extension. He'll start work the next day.

 Somehow (by sawing absolutley nothing) Gotz will accomplish his task, 
 so you can hire him once again. The extensions go in a specific 
 order:

 Henhouse
    Purpose-Allows you to have 10 Chickens (instead of 5), another 
      incubator for hatching eggs, and you now can get the Mayo Maker.
    Lumber-420
    Cost-5,000 G

 Your House (Extension 1)
    Purpose-You get a cabinet and refrigerator so you can store foods 
      and other items without having to carry them around. Also, you 
      get a kitchen so you can now cook!
    Lumber-370
    Cost-4,700 G

 Barn
    Purpose-Allows you to have a total of 20 sheep and cows, another 
      stall for pregnant animals, and you now can get the Cheese Maker 
      and Yarn Maker.
    Lumber-500
    Cost-6,800 G

 Your House (Extension 2)
    Purpose-Your bedroom is second room and you have a big enough house 
      to propose to a girl.
    Lumber-750
    Cost-10,000 G

 Hothouse
    Purpose-You can grow any crop in any season in here. Allows 4 3*3 
      fields. *Note*-This can get blown away by hurricanes and 
      snowstorms.
      *Tip*-Grow a renewable crop, like Pineapples, and soon you'll 
       get lots of money.
    Lumber-580
    Cost-30,000 G

 |___________________________________________________________|

 There are many festivals, and each falls into at least one of these 
 categories:
      -Romantic-Helps improve how much a girl likes you
       Example-Star Night Festival

      -Contest-You may need to prepare animals or work hard during 
         the festival if you want to be the winner.
       Example-Horse Race

      -Impassive-All you really need to do is show up, sometimes 
         you may need to bring something along, but you really don't 
         do much.
       Example-Music Festival

Spring Festivals
----------------

 New Year's Festival (Spring 1)
    You have a choice of either going to the bar with the adults or 
    going to Rose Square for a bonfire with dancing. I reccommend the 
    bonfire because dancing with a girl raises the level of how much 
    she likes you.

    Karen may or may not come to your farm to teach you to dance. (I'm 
    almost positive that it depends on your heart rating with her). 

    Anyway, just show up at night (6 PM or after) to either the Inn or 
    Rose Square.

    *Note*-You do not celebrate this the first year.

 Goddess Festival (Spring 8)
    This is a romantic festival, and is very hard to do the first year.
    To accompany a girl, you need to have either a blue or very close 
    to blue heart by Spring 7. Find one of the girls on Spring 7 and 
    she'll talk about the Goddess Festival, then you will have the option 
    of asking to accompany her. If she likes you enough, she'll agree.

 Spring Thanksgiving Festival (Spring 14)
    It's very hard, if not impossible, to take part in this event in 
    the first year, because you need a kitchen and some utensils. What 
    you do is make cookies for the girls eligible for marriage in the 
    village. Only give one to each unless they like cookies. Karen, for 
    example will accept one cookie, but you will make her heart rating 
    go down if you give her another. There are two recipies for cookies: 
    chocolate cookies and regular cookies.

    Cookies                            Chocolate Cookies
    -------                            -----------------
     Utensils-Oven, Rolling Pin         Utensils-Oven, Rolling Pin
     Seasonings-Sugar                   Seasonings-Sugar
     Ingredients-Flour, Butter*, Egg    Ingredients-Flour, Butter*, Egg,
      (Honey-Optional)                    Chocolate (Honey-Optional)

             *To make butter you need Milk and the Mixer.

    Unlike other festivals, everyone goes about their normal schedule 
    for that day.

 Local Horse Race (Spring 18)
    You can't compete in this event the first year, but you can starting 
    when your horse grows up. This takes place in Rose Square, starting 
    at 10 AM. You can bet on the horses to earn medals, and medals can 
    be exchanged for prizes:

    Item                Medals
    --------------------------
    Power Berry         1001
    500 Lumber*         97
    Bracelet            42
    Necklace            35
    Earings             33
    Turbojolt XL        21
    Bodigizer XL        15
    Truffle             12
    Mysterile (Ore)     3

    *Note-You can't get 500 Lumber until you get the Powerberry.

    See VIII-Animals and Crops for info on training your horse for 
    this festival.

 Cooking Festival (Spring 22)
    You probably won't compete in the first year, but once you have 
    a kitchen you can enter a dish for judging. There are several 
    recipies that can win, but Relaxation Tea is the simplest. 
    This is a basic Relaxation Tea, the more complex version is 
    in the recipies section.

    Relaxation Tea
    --------------
     Utensils-Pot, Knife*
     Seasonings-Sugar*
     Ingredients-Relaxation Tea Leaves

     *Optional, but reccommeded if you want to win

     Relaxation Tea Leaves
     ---------------------
     This can only be done in Spring. On a non-festival day (I'm not 
     sure, but it may have to be a sunny Sunday) bring 7 wrapped 
     flours to the Harvest Sprites between 3 and 4 PM. Give flour 
     to all the Sprites (if you're there at the right time, they'll 
     say something like "Give some to the others, too"). They'll 
     invite you to the Tea Party, and you'll get the Tea Leaves.

     *Note*-You can't get more Tea Leaves until you use the ones 
       you have.

Summer Festivals
----------------

 Opening Day (Swimming Festival) (Summer 1)
    This is definitly the hardest of all the festivals. There are a 
    couple different strategies, but I've won twice using this one:

    Quickly tap X until the smiley face turns orange. Then hold triangle 
    until it turns yellow again. Keep doing this, but once you're 
    half-way to 2/3 of the way through, just keep hitting X, not 
    worrying about the face.

    The first time you win, you get a Powerbarry. I won again on 
    year 2 and got ONE piece of lumber (yeah! (sarcasm)).

 Chicken Festival (Summer 7)
    If you buy a chicken early enough and get its hearts up, enter it 
    in the Sumo Chicken contest, during the Chicken Festival. To get 
    lots of hearts, just make sure you feed it everyday. Miss one 
    feeding and your chicken may lose a heart.

    What you do is you urge your chicken on by pressing X. This will 
    make your chicken go forward, and may give the other chicken a 
    scare, which makes the opponent's chicken go forward also. The 
    object is to get the other chicken out of the ring. Be careful 
    when urging your chicken, because if it's near the outside of 
    the ring, it may go out and you'll lose.

    The Chicken Festival is single elimination, and to be the winner 
    you need to win three matches. If your chicken wins the festival, 
    it'll start laying golden eggs as long as it has 10 hearts.

 Tomato Festival (Summer 12)
    This is my favorite festival. What basically happens is you join a 
    team; each has three members total. Then you throw tomatoes at the 
    opposing team.

    The teams are:

    Coconut Team                         Chicken Team
      -Manna                                -Rick
      -Duke                                 -Popuri
      -You                                  -You/Kai

    Sheep Team                           Star Team
      -Stu                                  -Doug
      -May/You                              -Ann
      -Elli                                 -You

    If I'm missing anyone, please email me!

    The best teams are the Star Team and the Chicken Team. Choose your 
    team carefully. If you win, your teammates will like you more.

    Strategies
    ----------
       1.)Hide behind the barrel the whole time and hope your teammates 
          knock out the opposition
       2.)As soon as you start, DUCK! Then, wait until no tomatoes are 
          coming your way and throw one at a member of the other team 
          that hasn't been knocked out yet

 Cow Festival (Summer 20)
    This is pretty hard to win the first year, unless you got a cow 
    very early on and somehow have managed to get it's hearts up to 10.

    To get your cow's hearts up, brush, milk, and feed it everyday. The 
    Harvest Sprites are there if you can't feed them for some reason 
    (example-Wedding Day).

    Entering A Cow
    --------------
       On the 19th of Summer, Barley will come by asking if you want to 
       enter a cow in the festival. To be eligible, cow:
         -Must be fully grown
         -Must not be pregnant
       Enter a cow with 10 hearts, preferably one that hasn't won yet.

       After you start the festival, if you win, Barley will announce it 
       and your cow will start producing golden milk, worth 300 G.

 Fireworks Display (Summer 24)
    On the 24th of Summer, at 6 PM, go to the beach. You can ask any of 
    the girls to watch the fireworks display with you, or you can go on 
    the 23rd to the beach to ask Kai to watch it with you.
    *Note*-Get all your work done before going to this festival because 
    after the festival, you wake up for the next morning.

Fall Festivals
--------------

 Music Festival (Fall 3)
    On the 2nd of Fall, Pastor Carter will come by and ask you to play 
    the ocarina in the music festival the following night. Accept and 
    go to the church the next night at 6PM.

 Harvest Festival (Fall 9)
    Basically, this is a sort of potluck; everyone brings something, it's
    all dumped into a huge pot, and everyone gets some to eat. The people 
    of the village have taste buds, and what you bring determines whether 
    it's a success or failure:

    Likes                 Dislikes
    -----                 --------
    Pineapple             Honey
    Egg                   Grass (Red, Blue, Green)
    Green pepper          Sweet Potato
    Truffle               Apple
    Carrot                Your dog
    Fruit Juice           A chicken
    Fruit Latte 

    If you put a chicken or your dog in the pot, you might find it the next 
    day at Rose Square

    After everyone has had some to eat, fish in the pot. It's mostly garbage, 
    but I've caught a small fish in there before.

 Moon Viewing Festival (Fall 13)
    At 6PM, go to the top of Mother's Hill. The girl who likes you the most 
    will be up there, waiting for you. Watch the moon with her and she'll 
    like you even more.

 Sheep Festival (Fall 21)
    If you buy a sheep early enough, you may be able to win this one your 
    first year. Take care of your sheep; brush it, feed it, and sheer it 
    as much as possible. If you can get it to 9 or 10 hearts, enter it 
    when Barley comes to ask you if you want to enter a sheep on the 20th.
    To be able to enter, a sheep:
       -Must not be sheared
       -Must not be pregnant
    If you win, your sheep will begin producing golden wool.

Winter Festivals
----------------

 Dog Race (Winter 10)
    You can do this, even in Year 1. In early Fall, Won should come by 
    and try to sell you a dog ball. Buy it, and throw it for your dog 
    10+ times a day. Pick up your dog and don't leave it outside during 
    bad weather to get it's hearts up.

    During the Festival
    -------------------
       Just run, and pause for your dog to keep up to you. Don't let 
       it get too far behind, or he'll wander off.

 Winter Thanksgiving Festival (Winter 14)
    Try to get all the girls on purple or blue hearts before this day 
    comes. At various times during the day, the girls in town will 
    bring you either chocolate (purple or blue hearts) or chocolate 
    cake (green heart and up). Chocolate is the rarest item in the 
    game. The times are:
       -6 AM
       -8 AM
       -10 AM
       -1 PM
       -3 PM

   Make sure you are on the farm during these times.

   *Note*-If you are married or engaged you won't get anything except 
    from your wife.

 Star Night Festival (Winter 24)
    On the 23rd, all of the girls will invite you to come to their 
    house for the night of the 24th. Pick whomever you are trying to 
    marry, and on the 24th, show up at her house at 6 PM.

 New Year's Eve (Winter 30)
    At 6 PM on the 30th, go to the peak of Mother's Hill to watch the 
    sunrise.

Other Dates
-----------

 Wedding Day
    Exactly one week after you propose to a girl (assuming she accepts) 
    is your wedding day. You cannot do anything on this day, so hire 
    the Harvest Sprites

 Your Birthday
    On the day of your birthday you may get some mail from villagers, 
    wishing you a happy B-Day.

 Wife Reminders
    On the following days, when you re-enter your house, your wife 
    will ask you what day it is:
       -Anniversery
       -Her B-Day
       -Your B-Day
    It's not that hard, just try to get the right answer.

    happen:

    5 Items*Powerberry

             friendship

    The items can be thrown in once-a-day, or all at once, etc.

  Part D-Legendary Fish
  ---------------------
  There are some legendary fish you can catch, but only if you fish in 
  the right spot and certain requirements are met, depending on the 
  fish. They are much easier to catch with the Fishing Pole.

  Once you catch it, you'll get a print of the fish, which can be seen 
  when you hit start. You don't get to keep the fish, just the print.

  Catfish
     Mine in the Winter Mine until you get to the bottom. Enter the 
     underground lake, and fish. It may take awhile, but you can 
     get the Catfish.

  Squid
     Throw a small fish into the ocean, then fish. The small fish is 
     "bait". You need to throw another fish in every day.

  Sea Bream
     Ship over 200 fish. Fish in the ocean in any season but WInter.

  Angler
     In Winter, fish in the ocean between 11 PM and 8 AM

  Carp
     Once you catch the five other legendary fish, fish in Goddess Pond 
     in any season but Winter

  Char
     Make Sushi, Sashimi, and Grilled Fish, then fish in the river that 
     runs through your farm, or in Goddess Pond.

Part E-Other Codes/Secrets
--------------------------
  Winter Watering Can
     In the Winter Mine, mine all the way to the bottom. Go to the spring 
     and fill your watering can. You'll have unlimited water (this may 
     only be in effect during winter)

  100%, Possible or Impossible
     This is a copy of the email I recieved from Natsume about whether 
     it's possible to get 100%:

     My email:
        Is it possible to get 100%? The closest my friends and I have 
        gotten is 98%.

     Response:
        It is technically possible to get a 100%, however it is not 
        easy to explain. The mathematical equation has different 
        variables...time, objects, etc. 

     If anyone gets 100%, email me.

Thank you,

         yourself.
       Sharni Cannon writes "I don't think you need to have a blue 
         heart on Ann to get a birthday invite. I have a purple 
         heart and just got mine in the mail."

         he doesn't get to talk to her much at the Inn. Ann says 
         she must be boring to talk to. Cliff says that he likes
