    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

                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.

                        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.

    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.

                  bounds area behind the green.  On Hole 14, the bears roam in 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.

                  15, on the left side of the pond in front of the green.

                fairway.

    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).

    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!
