Hot Shots Golf Fore! (North American version)
Capsule Guide


Version:  This guide is for the North American version of Hot Shots Golf:
          Fore!  The capsule items and locations are different in the Japanese
          version of the title.  The only FAQ/Walkthrough currently available
          on Gamefaqs.com refers to the Japanese version of the game (so you
          should use that guide for the Japanese version capsules).


Last Update:  February 10, 2005
Note:         As of February 10, 2005, this guide is complete (except that I
              need some help with some of the oddities, as mentioned in
              section 4).

0.0  Introduction / Contact Information


     Welcome to my Capsule Guide for Hot Shots Golf: Fore!, one of the
wackiest and most fun golf games on the market.  In this guide, you will find
what each capsule contains and where to find these contents.  I have also
included a list of other ambient wildlife in the Hot Shots Golf universe.

     If you have any information about capsule info I may have missed OR a
correction/addition/other input about anything else in this guide, please
e-mail me at:  ericreiman@yahoo.com.  Thanks and happy hunting!



1.0  Capsule Info


1.1  Capsule #1:  Macaw

In-game description:  A wild bird with beautiful red wings.
Course:  Blue Lagoon C.C.
Hole:  15
Specific Location:  Atop one of the Easter Island-like statues/totem poles
behind the green.  Specifically, the macaw is on the third statue from the
left.  The macaw can be viewed on any shot.


1.2  Capsule #2:  Tumbleweed

In-game description:  Mysterious grass with animal-like behavior.
Course:  Western Valley C.C.
Hole:  1 AND 8
Specific Location:  This capsule item is somewhat strange.  I believe that you
need windy conditions to see it.  On Hole 1, I had a 6 mps wind blowing from
right to left, and the tumbleweed came rolling across right in front of the
tee box from right to left, following the wind.  On Hole 8, I had a 4 mps wind
toward the hole (helping me) and I saw the tumbleweed on my approach shot to
the green (my second shot).  It was rolling across the green in the direction
of the wind.  Incidentally, I got my second Double Eagle on that shot!  :-)


1.3  Capsule #3:  Pirarucu

In-game description:  Largest freshwater fish in the world.
Course:  Wild Green C.C.
Hole:  6 AND 12
Specific Location:  In the pond surrounding the front of the green.  It swims
to the right and then back left again.  It's easier to see in the overhead
view, THEN you can use the normal view zoom controls to see it better.  On
Hole 12, TWO pirarucus are swimming under the middle of the bridge to the left
of the green.


1.4  Capsule #4:  Pirate Ship

In-game description:  A pirate ship that shows up during bad weather.
Course:  Blue Lagoon C.C.
Hole:  3
Specific Location:  This capsule item is also very strange.  I decided to play
a few rounds at Blue Lagoon C.C. under different seasons to see if I really
needed bad weather in order to see the pirate ship.  The definitive answer is
"NO".  I saw the pirate ship during the fall season at Hole 3.  It is on the
left side of the hole, slightly past the beach almost directly to the grove of
trees in the left center of the fairway.  The pirate ship floats to the right,
then back, and then begins to FLY!  It touches down in the water again, and
continues its counterclockwise circling.  The pirate ship can be seen on any
shot.  However, it is NOT guaranteed that the pirate ship will show up on any
given round.  Its appearance is random.


1.5  Capsule #5:  Panda

In-game description:  An animal you only see at the zoo nowadays.
Course:  Silk Road Classic
Hole:  5
Specific Location:  Right in between the tee and the green, the panda sits
in a grove of bamboo trees.  He can be viewed on any shot.  The panda is
chewing on a twig (and looking very cute while doing it)!


1.6  Capsule #6:  Hippo

In-game description:  A humorous animal with a huge body and a big mouth.
Course:  Wild Green C.C.
Hole:  10
Specific Location:  In the pond behind the green, to the right of the hole.
There is another hippo on the embankment behind the pond, back and right of
the hippo in the water.


1.7  Capsule #7:  Hermit

In-game description:  A super-human that hops on a cloud and flies across the
                      sky.
Course:  Silk Road Classic
Hole:  13
Specific Location:  Flies left and right over the huge chasm in the center.
Disappears and reappears in other parts of the chasm randomly.  If you aim
your drive to the right hand fairway, you will often see him as the ball is
flying through the air toward the fairway (that's how I saw him the first
time).


1.8  Capsule #8:  Super Jet

In-game description:  Beautiful delta-winged airplane that travels at sonic
                      speed.
Course:  United Forest G.C.
Hole:  10
Specific Location:  Flies across the sky toward the tee box.  You can't miss
this one!


1.9  Capsule #9:  Parasailer

In-game description:  A tropical toy that gracefully flies through the air.
Course:  Aloha Beach Resort
Hole:  9
Specific Location:  Right in between the tee and the green.  Glides to the
left and then back again.  You really can't miss this one either!


1.10  Capsule #10:  Mystery Train

In-game description:  A mystery train that travels space on rails of light.
Course:  Day Dream G.C.
Hole:  6
Specific Location:  The train's take-off point is behind and to the left of
the green.  The "rails of light" are fairly obvious too and extend over the
green and intersect the futuristic city on the right side of the hole.  The
travels on these "rails of light."


1.11  Capsule #11:  Balloon

In-game description:  Cluster of balloons floating across the sky.
Course:  Day Dream G.C.
Holes:  5 AND 15
Specific Locations:  On Hole 5, the balloons float above the Arc de Triomphe
replica on the left side of the hole.  On Hole 15, the balloons float above
the whimsical castle directly between the tee box and the green.



2.0  Other Ambient Wildlife by Course

NOTE:  There are ants that crawl around the inside lips of some cups on every
single course; they are not included in the following lists.


2.1  Mt. Sakura G.C.

*White/Orange Fish - Holes 1, 2, 9, 12, 15, 17, and 18, in the pond.  The fish
                     may be white and red - I'm colorblind.

*Dragonfly - Holes 4 and 8, buzzing around the green while you're putting.

*White Duck - Hole 7, swimming left and right in the pond.


2.2  Aloha Beach Resort

*Seagulls - Holes 1, 2, and 9.  The seagulls fly through the air, generally
            over water.

*Jet - Hole 3, you can't miss it.

*Butterly - Hole 5, back left of green.  The butterfly is dark-colored; I
            think it's purple.

*Yacht - Hole 9, in harbor between tee and green.  Usually is on the left.

*Hot Air Balloon - Hole 10, floating in the air on the right side of the hole.


2.3  Western Valley C.C.

*Eagle - Holes 1, 3, 4, 5, 9, 10, and 11, flying over the fairway and
         sometimes over the mountains.

*Silver Fish - Holes 2, 4, 5, and 6, in the pond.

*Bighorn Sheep - Hole 3, on a pinnacle of the mountain range on the right.

*Dark Fish - Holes 3 and 7, in the pond.

*Yellow/Pink Fish - Hole 13, in part of the pond behind the right side of the
                    green.

*UFO - Ah, the UFO.  This is on Hole 14.  It zooms around the hole, changing
       its position every second or two.  It can be seen on any shot, but it
       is easiest to see on the second shot.  Use the overhead view to follow
       its erratic flight path.


2.4  Bagpipe Classic

*Duck - Holes 2, 4, and 17, swimming in the water.  Always appear in pairs.

*Jackrabbit - Hole 1, hopping in fairway.  Hole 13, in front of Stonehenge
              monument.  Hole 18, behind far church wall.

*Small bird - Hole 7, flies from the tee box toward the green.

*Butterly - Holes 7 and 13, fluttering over the green.  They are purple.

*Cow - Hole 12, in grazing field on left of hole.

*Sheep - Hole 12, grazing with cow in field on left of hole.


2.5  United Forest G.C.

*Super Fish - Hole 1, floating ABOVE (yes, above!) the water!  Wow!

*Blimp - Holes 1, 9, and 18.  Is easiest to see in the overhead view.

*Dragonfly - Holes 10 and 14, zooms around the greens.

*That's it.  Not much ambient life at United Forest G.C.


2.6  Northern Fox C.C.

*Foxes - Holes 2, 9, 11, 13, 14 and 16.  On Hole 2, they are under the Eiffel
         Tower replica.  On Hole 9, they are to the left of the green, in the
         grove of trees.  On Hole 11, one fox is on the left side of the hole,
         in the grove of trees.  On Hole 13, aim at the third bunker on the
         right side of the fairway and zoom in.  The foxes are in the trees
         behind this bunker.  There are also two to the left of the bunker
         with two trees coming out of it (same hole).  On Hole 14, between the
         two bodies of water, in the grove of trees.  On Hole 16, is in the
         field of flowers, behind the man-made "observation deck."

*Cranes - Hole 4, between tee box and green, flying over the water.

*Dragonfly - Holes 6 and 15.  On Hole 6, begins over water, flies over right
             side of green, then off the back right side of the screen.  They
             reappear every 10 or 15 seconds and continue the pattern.  On
             Hole 15, the flight is very similar, but the dragonfly starts
             from the left of the green then exits back right of the green.

*Small Dragonfly - Hole 6, buzzes over the green.

*Horses - Hole 9, grazing in pasture in front and right of the green.

*Sheep - Holes 9 and 16.  On Hole 9, is grazing with the horses in the

         of the field.

*Train - Hole 10, on the right side of the hole.  Starts behind the green and
         rolls toward the front of the hole.

*Brown Bear - Holes 12 and 14.  On Hole 12, the bear roams in the out of
              bounds area behind the green.  On Hole 14, the bears roam in the
              out of bounds area back and left of the green.

*Deer - Hole 16, in the field of flowers.  In back left of field.


2.7  Day Dream G.C.

*Giant Octopus/Squid - Hole 3, in body of water in front of the green, on the
                       same level as the tee box.  The giant creature can be
                       seen mangling a ship of some sort.

*Cars - Hole 6, travelling on elevated highways in the futuristic city on the
        right side of the hole.

*Cars - Hole 9, travelling on overhead highway above the fairway.  Be careful!
        It's possible to land your ball up here, so be careful!  The shot will
        count as Out of Bounds.

*Floating castle(s) - Hole 10, the floating castle moves right, while the
                      other floating object moves in the opposite direction.
                      (Does anyone know what this other floating object is?)
                      These two objects can only be seen from the overhead
                      view.

            semi-hiding behind a tree behind the green.  On Hole 15, the pigs
            are right under a tree directly between the tee box and the island
            fairway.

          beak!

3.0  General Tips for Finding the Capsule Items and Ambient Wildlife


     As for locating the capsule items, it is very helpful to be familiar with
the camera controls.  To zoom in or move the camera forward (or down from the
overhead view), press [triangle].  To pan back out again or move the camera
backward (or up from the overhead view), press [circle].  To get to the
overhead view [and back again], press [start].  This view is very useful when
trying to spot capsule items 3 and 7: the pirarucu and the hermit.  It is also
the only way you can seem some objects, most notably the floating structures
on Hole 10 of the Day Dream G.C.


4.0  Oddities


4.0.1  Volcanic Shortcut

     On the 2nd hole at Day Dream G.C., there is a secret passageway from the
middle volcanic opening to the green!  I hardly believed it when someone
mentioned it on the message board, but it is true!  Aim for the middle volcano
(it's the second steaming one).
--This was brought to my attention by User ID:  Trevor2099


4.0.2  "Father" Statues

     At United Forest G.C., in some places there are bust (head only) statues
labeled "Father."  I don't know what these mean (can someone shed some light
on this subject?).  There are 4 statues that I know of:
1.  Hole 9, behind the green, in front of the two-tiered house
2.  Hole 12, placed in the winding creek, in front of the green
3.  Hole 16, placed in pond in front and to the left of the green
4.  Hole 18, back right of green, in front of the two-tiered house


4.0.3  Flashing Hieroglyphic Rock

	At Blue Lagoon C.C., on Hole 6, there is a rock that sticks out of the
water/beach to the left of the green (next to the yellow airplane).  If you
watch closely [it may help to zoom in], some characters (hieroglyphics?) will
flash on and off on the rock.  There are 4 letters, and I personally cannot
make out any of them.  Any information anyone may have on these letters would
be greatly appreciated!
