Your parents are going away for two years, (actually it's two and a half) and they have left the farm to you. Now its your job to fix it up and get it into working order by the time they return. This may sound easy, but when you think about all the stuff that you have to do it's pretty overwhelming. In addition to the normal farmer rountine with you crops, you have t raise livesstock, get marriesd, upgrade your house and eventually, (Is this legal?:) have children. And all this stuff is set up in about a two minute day. Do you have what it takes to become a Master Farmer? ======================== 3) PLAYING HARVEST MOON ======================== So. You decided to become a farmer. Thats good, but first you have to learn the basics. Controls: A Button: This is your basic action button. Button to talk to people, pick up rocks, bushes, etc. B Button: Use this button to run. You know how to run, right? Y Button: Use this button to use your equipped tool. *NOTE* This uses stamina. See section -- X Button: Use this button to switch your equipped tools. L & R Buttons: Use these Buttons to whistle for your horse and dog. For more on them, see section -- D-Pad: Use this to move around. Select Button: Use this to see the date, the time, (if you have the watch)and your current amount of money. Info: Each day consist of 10 hours, 15 seconds each. Which means you have just about 2 minutes and 30 seconds to do your work. This may seem like a long time, but when you consider it takes you about an hour (game time)to cross your field, time really flies. Later on you can get a lot of stronger tools. I will go into details in later sections. To do most things you need stamina. For more on stamina, see section -- =============== 4) ITEMS/TOOLS =============== This section contains every item or tool you can pick up in the game. The stamina is a rough estimate. There is no possible way to be sure what the exact numbers are, so bare with me. I will not list the gold tools here, but rather in section -- Also the Vegetables will be listed in section 5.

All these things can be found at the flower shop. *NOTE* I did most of these prices from memory so if I have some wrong sorry. If anybody wants to make a complete/accurate/better list you are welcome to send it to me. Here's the setup: Name: The name of the veggie. Season: What season you can buy and grow it in. Price: How much it can be bought for. Sold: How much it can be sold for. Growing Time: How lng it takes to grow. Notes: Any sidenotes I might have. Name: Turnip Season: Spring Price: 200 Sold: 150 Growing: 3 days Notes: These are quick growing, but they are really to cheap to use in the second spring. By then how much money you should have would just be a waste on turnips. Name: Potatoes Season: spring Price: 200 Sold: 300 Growing: 8 days Notes: While these take a few more days to grow than turnips they will be your best money maker in the second spring. Name: Tomatoes Season: Summer Price: 200 Sold: 300 Growing: 10 days Notes: These are really good because after you harvest the first crop if you keep watering them they will produce over and over in three day intervals. Name: Corn Season: Summer Price: 200 Sold: 400 Growing: 10 days Notes: These will be your absolute best crop through the entire game. Like the tomatoes they grow back in three days. Name: Grass Season: All, except Winter Price: 500 Sold: -- Growing: 7 days Notes: i know this isn't a vegatable but I put them here because you can plant them. There is no need to water grass. And it will keep growing untill winter. You have to replant in Spring. You use this to feed your livestock and to beautify your farm. =========== 6) ANIMALS =========== This is a list of all the animals in the game except your cows and chickens. Those will be listed in section 7. Here's the setup: Name: The name of the animal. Use: What its purpose in the game is. How to get: How to get it. Location: Where you can find it. Name: Dog (I name him Rowf) Use: Besides telling you if you lost a chicken, none. How to get: Beth gives him to you at the begining of the game. Location: Wherever you put him, he will be in that general area, though he does tend to wander. Name: Horse (I name her Angl, short for Angel) Use: She is used to get around the farm quicker and she is also a portable shipping bin. How to get: In the first Winter go to the road next to your house to get her, though she won't be big enough to ride till spring. Location: Road Name: Fox Use: none that I can see. How to get: You can't catch him. Location: Once in a while if your in the Back hills you will see a fox run by. Name: Rabbit Use: If you grab it the hunter will ask you to let it go for 50 bucks. How to get: Just pick it up. Location: In the Back Hills. He's only there once, I think. So if you see him grab him. ============= 7) LIVESTOCK ============= Here is the livestock in the game. now remember, time stops when your in a building, so don't freak out when you spend 10 minutes (real time) In the barn milking your cows. Chickens: You can have as many chickens as you want outside but in the coop you can only have twelve. The chickens can be bought full grown for 500, or grown from an egg you put in the incubator which is in the bottom right of the coop. Chickens will not lay eggs for 7 days when you get them. Then when they do lay eggs put them in the shipping box on the bottom right of the coop. If you miss a feeding or leave them outside in the rain they will not lay eggs for 3 days. You can sell eggs for 50 bucks. Chickens will not lay eggs outside but they will feed themselves. If you leave them outside make sure they are in a fenced in area. There are wild dogs around that will eat your chickens if their not fenced in, or the fence is broke. Your dog will bark if you have lost a chicken during the night. A healthy coop of chickens can make 600 bucks a day. Cows: By far, the absolute best way to make money in the game. In your barn you can have twelve cows. I am not real sure whether you can get more than that. I never tried. You can buy cows for a 1000 bucks. That may seem expensive but it is well worth it. If you want your cows to be happy (And remember, the happier the cow the more the milk) buy a brush and make sure you brush them each day. Also talk to them. When you name them make sure you remember which ones which so you don't waste stamina brushing a cow twice. You can do what i do which makes it real easy name the Cow1, Cow2, Cow3, etc. Then talk to the cow before you brush it so you know. When you buy a cow it comes only half grown, so you have to feed it and brush it everyday. Then when it doesstart producing milk it will only be a small. After about 3 weeks of being good to your cow it will produce more and more milk. You can only milk a cow once a day. You can leave the cows outside, but if there is a storm, your chances are they will get sick. When the cows get sick you have about 2 and half weeks before they die. You can cure them using medicine but this also gets them pregnant. You can't milk them, when they are pregnant I don't think. It takes about 30 days for the cow to be born, and another 30 for it to be full grown. Try not to get a lot of cows. The more cows you have in your barn the slower the game will go when you are in there. If you have 12 cows it can take almost 30 minutes to milk and brush them all. Once you have a good amount of money sell some of your cows untill you have about 8. Although it may slow down your game, an entire barn of contented cows can produce 3600 A DAY!! Here is a list of the prices for your milk. Small: 100 Medium: 200 Large: 300 Pretty simple I know but hey. Well, good luck raising your animals. ========== 8) PEOPLE ========== This is a list of all the people in the game except for the Girls they will be listed in section 9.

Hangouts: She is almost always outside the flower shop. Except on Saturdays, she is in mountain cave. Likes: Store Bought Flowers Dislikes: Everything else. Difficulty: Very Hard Diary: In the back of the Flower shop. Notes: Nina is the hardest girl in the game for two reasons. 1- She likes flowers but she hates when people pick them so you can only give her store bought flowers which cost 500 bucks!! 2- This game was translated from Japanese very poorly so some of the stuff she says is hard to understand. If your going for a challenge, go for Nina. ==================== 10) LESSONS IN LOVE ==================== Here are some good tips for when you are dating a girl and when you get married. Give a girl at least two gifts a day. Talk to her untill she starts saying two different things. Dance with her at all the festivals. Never give any other girls presents. When you get married do not stay out pass six or else your wife will go to bed without you. If you dont have a watch, 6:00 is when the music stops playing. And the shipper comes at five. So at 5:00 you have fifteen seconds to get home. If you want a baby be REAL good to your wife. When you get a baby hold him alot. ============ 11) SECRETS ============ There are alot of secrets in the game. Here are the ones I found. If you send me a secret I will try it. If it does not work, I will put it up in the rumors section. Once I have verified that it does work I will Switch it over to here. Golden Tools: Gold Scynth- Sometime in the summer of the first year a guy will tell you he heard a noise. Go to the bottom right and you will find a well. Go down it and there will be two elves. Talk to one and he will ask if you like your Scynth. Say yes and he will upgrade it for you. The gold scynth will cut down all the grass in the squares around you. It takes 5 stamina. Gold Plow- In the Spring of the second year you will find a elf in front of your yard. He will ask you for food. Bring him some and he will upgrade your Plow. The golden plow will will plow six squares in a straight line. The golden plow takes 5 stamina. Gold Axe- Sometime in the Winter of the first year you will have an earthquake. Go to the Back Hills and the boulder that was blocking the path before is gone. Swing your axe at the pond and a fairy will drop down and asked if you dropped the gold axe. Say no and she will give it to you. The gold axe can cut a stump in one hit. It takes 5 stamina. Gold Hammer- In the Fall of the first year one of the construction workers will ask to borrow your hammer. Say yes and he will upgrade it. The gold hammer can smash a big rock in one hit. it takes 5 stamina. Sprinkler- In the begining of Summer of the second year the Hardware shop owner will tell you he is building a new invention. Go to the Hardware shop on the 22 and he will have the sprinkler. I think you can trade the water can for it. The sprinkler waters in all the squares around you. It takes 5 stamina. Seed Secrets: Snowflower- In the harvest festival the peddler will offer to sell you the seed of snowflower. You can buy it both years so don't worry if you don't worry if you can't afford it the first. If you do buy it in the winter go to the top of the mountain and plant it. when it grows you can sell it to the peddler. Magic beans- If you sell a cow later in the game. Before the Livestock dealer comes to your house he will offer to trade the cow for some magic beans. (Sound Familiar?:) If you plant the beans on the top of the mountain a vine will grow up. When you get there walk up to the golden chicken and talk to it. It will give you a golden egg which you sell for 20,000 Bucks. Bell Tree- Later in the game, a peddler will ask you if you would like to buy a money tree from him for 2,000 bucks. Say yes and he will plant a tree with bells all over it. It doesn't give you money. What it does is calls your cows in from all over the farm. =========== 12) CREDIT =========== MetroidMoo Marshmallow Both of which i gained inspiration from their work.
