Tips

Back to top

A few little tips...

Need tips? Here are a few =3

1) If your cow is sleeping and you really need to milk her ((say Van is in town and you've been waiting forever...)) just milk her once, but make sure to wake her up by going to her head and pushing her backwards. She'll stand up, turn around, and wake up. Keep doing this until she wakes up. This way she won't get mad

2) Trying to be someones friend? well then, heres a small tip, if you give them milk, eggs, flowers, fish or something twice a day for about 3 to 4 days, then they may be your friend. The way to tell is that when you walk past them they will look at you as they pass. If not then work a little harder and give them more stuff. It sucks cause you get no profit, but you may get something once you become their friend.

3) This one is for all the newbies, You really dont need to feed your dude guy foodand milk, that wastes profit... live off roots! And small fish like snelt and columbo... its better and it keeps you full... do the same with your dog and cat.

4) Horses may get really irritable after a while, well they seem to always be, give them a good brush and feed them an apple. that will cheer them up a bit =3

5)If you talk to the twins in their little house, they will ask you if you want to play a game... it is really hard, I havent beaten it yet but I find that Patric is the easier one...

6) If you are triing to befriend Galen, then go to his house at around 3:30 pm. He will be walking towards his house, go to the grave and talkt o him, he will ask you to clean the tomb stone, when you clean it, start slow, and when you start to sweat go fast... I find that works

A Guide To Getting Started

After watching probably one of the worst and most boring opening scenes in the history of Harvest Moon, you find yourself with a farm, a cow, a dog, and 3,000g. Here's a brief guide to getting off the ground in Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life.

What Should I Do With My 3,000?

There's a few things you'll probably want to get done soon at the beginning, unfortunatly these things all cost some money. Here's a list of things you could do:

1. Buy two banana tree seeds (1,500 each). Buy next summer these can be a huge source of income when paired with a seed maker.

2. Buy one sheep (1,500) and various lighter tools. The sheep can become a steady source of income once you start to get golden wool, and the tools such as a light sickle and light hoe can be indispinsable.

3. Buy one pond (2,500) and buy one brush from Van (500). The pond does nothing but look nice, and attract ducks in the summer of year two. The brush is something you're going to need to keep your animals clean so they produce up to highest standards.

An easy way to get gold wool

I found this a really good way to get gold wool and make your sheep really happy. Every day or every other day, wash it with the brush about 5 times. When you first get gold wool from it, it will stay extremely happy for the rest of the game (possibly). I've been leaving my sheep in the snow and rain and its still happy!

An easy way to get into Rock's room

Many people say that you can't go into Rock's room by following him, but the truth is, you can. He usually goes to bed at 12:30 am and before that, he is at the Blue Bar. To visit his room, you should probably meet up with him at 12:00 at the Blue bar, and then follow him to the inn. Make sure to go inside before him or this won't work. Once you're inside with him, leave while he is still in the lobby and come back inside. He won't be in the lobby anymore, so go up to his room and it should be unlocked. <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />

Angry and Hurt Muffy

To get this cutscene you need to have Muffy at 4 hearts and seen all her cutscenes. Then you need to propose to someone else and they have to accept (I proposed to Nami) before the end of winter. In this scene Muffy will come up to you wondering why you would propose to someone else (other than her) and that she knew she really didn't belong in the Valley. Afterwards, if you try to talk to her she'll be very angry (Infact, she even goes as far as to threaten you!). This scene will happen automatically when you try to enter your house after proposing.

I don't no if this will happen with all three girls tho.

Animal Intelligence

If you own an animal long enough and always take it inside on rainy days and outside on sunny days it will learn to enter the pasture on good days and go into the barn on rainy days.

Note: This may take a while for the animals to learn.

Animal Money

In this cheat you need a few chickens and cows { one girl one boy }. Then you gotta keep all the animals happy and do a miracle potion for the two cows. Also collect your chickens eggs and hatch them until your coop is full. Keep collecting there eggs and keep them somewhere. When your newest chickens get old enough sell the old ones and you got a profit. With your cows it take longer but you pretty much do the same thing. Unless you really like your cows or chickens then you can just sell the milk and eggs.

Bad Goat

A goat is pretty cool at first, but after a while it stops giving milk and becomes a useless animal. And guess what, you can't sell it! Now if ya'll are puting him in the rain, you got it all wrong. For some odd reason it won't get sick. Here's the problem, outside he can eat grass keeping him healthy. So if the goat wants food, he ain't getting it. Put him inside the barn and don't put any food in his bin. But remember you can't use the bell to make all your animals come outside, so you'll have to push your animals out by hand. One month: goat gets sick. One more month: you awake to the harvest sprites but not with good news. You go in your barn and watch the goat fall over and die. Man that's one goat!

Cloned Cows

Daryl is always at your farm, right? Do you know why? He wants to clone your cows. During some year he'll start asking you if you know about cloned cows. If you say yes or no, he doesn't tell you why he was asking. Then, sometime later in the game, go outside while Daryl is at your farm. You will see a cut scene where Daryl is talking to himself about cloning your cows. You go over to him and scare him. Then he says he wasn't doing anything. Then you cow/bull goes over to the fence and scares Daryl. Daryl runs away. Later in the game, he'll ask you if he can clone your cows.

Cow milk

There are rumors that you can't get S milk without feeding your
cows good fodder. Let's use the first cow you get in this game as an example. The first time you milk her, she gives you two B milk. B is average quality. The next time in the afternoon/evening, (milk twice a day, to those who don't know this), she'll most likely give you 3-4 milk A. A is very good quality. In summer, she'll only give 3 or 2 milk A, and in winter, she'll give 2 milk S. Your cows give certain qualities of milk depending on your relationships with them, and certain amounts depending on season and how long it is after she last gave birth. (Your cow must have a calf again about 40 days after she starts giving milk again after she has a calf in order for her to continue giving milk). Like humans, cows won't give milk the moment they're mature--they must have just given birth, too!

4) then in a few days it will say that they are fine but are acting strange , wait for 4 days and ( even though shes already pregnate) it will say that " oh my *cows name* seems to be preganate !

Cutscenes with Celia. (Before Marrage)

These are basically all the scenes with her.

1 heart- Enter Vesta's house. Leave when Celia
goes outside. This will trigger a scene where
She asks about the farm.

2 hearts- Leave your house around noon. This
trigger a scene where you are at the spring
with Celia. (I think. Got it long time ago.)

3 hearts- Enter Vesta's house when Celia is inside
and Vest and Marlin are in the storage room.
This triggers a scene where Celia goes on a shopping trip.

3 hearts- Enter Vesta's house when Celia is inside.
This triggers a scene where Celia speaks
of her arranged marriage.(Somthin like that)

4 hearts- Enter Vesta's house when Vesta, Celia,
and Marlin are inside. This triggers a scene
where they are arguing about Celia's arranged marriage.

4 hearts- Exit your house around 6 AM. This
triggers a scene where Celia is missing. You
find her and she says she LIKES (loves) you.

I hope these tips help all of you! Somtimes you
have to try more than once to get the scenes.
If you have trouble then there is one thing to do!
Try this!

Step1:Save your game an hour before you enter or exit the house you need to go to.

Step2:Turn your game off then back on and load your game.

Step3:Go to the place you need to be right away.
This usually works with me. Hope I helped! 'u'

Free Money

You need an already pregnant cow and a bull to do this. However, you cannot already be certain that the cow is pregnant (when you talk to her, it should say something like, "<cows name> is fine, but acting strangely)."
1. After you are sure the cow is pregnant, go into your ledger and get into the buying screen.
2. Buy some Miracle Potion for the pregnant cow , using the Farms bull option so it costs nothing.
3. When Takakura picks up your order, a short cut-scene will be triggered where Taka tells you that your cow is already pregnant.
4. Go back into the ledger and some text will inform you that Taka left a note. Check the screen where you get your money, and the note will inform you that Taka has paid you back for the MP.
5. You get 2500 G that you didnt even spend in the first place.

Friends at a Glance

OK, a lot of you may already know this, but for all of the new HM players out there, you may wonder how to tell if people are your friends or not. An easy wat to figure this out is to walk past people. If they turn their head when you walk by them, or they by you, they are your friend. If they don't, they aren't. Just keep in miind that often enough the person will be doing something, and won't look at you even if you are their friend. If this happens, when the perosn moves somewhere else, follow the. A good time to check for friends is when the person is walking to somewhere. (eg when Ruby walks to the Spring everyday, walk past her and if she's you friend, she will look at you, but if you go to the kitchen and walk past her, nothing will happen.)

Get Nami to move back

If you didn't marry Nami and she left town, there is a way to get her to move back. During the second chapter a little while after Nami left, go to the blue bar at around 7 or 8pm. You will see a cutscene where Patrick, Cody, and Gustafa walk in. They start talking about how they miss Nami. Then Carter walks in and tells them that he just saw Nami. After Patrick, Cody and Gustafa run outside, the bartender will ask if you are going too. Answer, "Going after" to follow them and see them crowding Nami. After they leave, she will talk to you. When she tells you she is staying, answer, "everyone will be happy" she will thank you and end cutscene. Now Nami has moved back to town!

Note: If you go to the blue bar but nothing happens, make sure that the bartender is not there and go look for him out walking. Follow him until he go's inside the blue bar which should be around 7 or 8pm.

The more you talk to Tarten the earlier you are able to hybrid your crops. For instance if you talk to him once or twice a day then you could probably be able to hybrid in the next mounth, but if you talk to him nonstop, you can hybrid later that day. Be sure to talk to him from time to time or you will lose the option to hybrid.

Getting your perfect bride!

Ok. These are a few tips for all you beginners out there!
.Marrage: You have 3 potential wives: Muffy (the easy one), Celia (in my opinion the best choice for beginners with some dignity), and Nami (for those that like a challenge). Just do exactly as I say and you can get anyone one of these potential brides to love you in just a season or two (yes, even Nami).
-Muffy: Muffy is a dimwit with an ego. She is particularly beautiful compared to the other brides (I actually think Celia is prettier, but that is just my opinion). In order to get her: Give her flowers everyday and nothing else, except Big Huchep Fish. There are opportunities to possibly get on her good side. If you go into that other room beside the bar and Muffy is in there, talk to her for a little bit. Eventually she will say "Who are you here for?". Always say her, otherwise it may piss her off a bit.
-Celia: Celia is a real sweetie. She hardly ever gets mad at you and she has some skills that may be useful. In order to get her: She also likes flowers. A flower every day or every other day will do. You may also want to get on Vesta's good side as well, she may arrange a marriage for you. Besides flowers, she also adores crops from your farm.
-Nami: Believe it or not, Nami isn't impossible to get. I know because I got her at four hearts. So Nami is not predictable, so try not to talk to her to much (or she will get annoyed). In order to get her: Give her stuff from the digsite like fossils and human statues. It isn't a real loss for they are only worth about 60g from Van. Besides that she likes Trick Blues and Gemsoils. And here is a special tip: I don't know about you but when I just got the game it seemed impossible to get to read Nami's diary-her door was always locked (her room is in the Inn, up the stairs, and on the left side)! But there is a way to read it. Stay up really late, at least till midnight. Then go to the bar, see if she is there. If she isn't try going to her room. It is most likely that she is there. If she isn't look around a bit and when you find her follow her untill she enters the inn. That is when she is in her room. Hope all these tips help!

Grade S Milk

Grade S Milk, yes, it DOES exist, but don't count on that special fodder, instead, wait for a year after your cow gave birth, then the last milk it gives away will be Grade S! But then there's no more milk after that, don't push your luck, mate.

If your cow gives gradeA and you milk it twice a day and you hug it brush it and talk 2 it just before you milk it then by winter 1st you can get gradeS milk without using good fooder or gettting then milking room(it helps 2 let it out everyday and when you cows feed bit is empty(even 1)fill it up)you can tell because when you hug it and talk to it its tounge sticks out!and the talk bit is different like (your cows name) eyes are shing or (cows name) is very healthy and coat is shiney etc...

Great Tips and Some VERIFIED Unlockables

I recently started playing Harvest Moon- A wonderful Life(me and my two brothers ages 15 & 18 are also playing this game and seeing who can be a better farmer, each is marrying a different girl i think is kinda cool..kinda like a competition). I decided to get all the unlockables by my own experience and i saw that some of the cheats were very unreliable so i decided to contribute to the society. I promise this is all recently been verified and you can trust it.

Greatest Fishing Spot- Underneath the Waterfall.( I think this is the bestest way to enjoy the game by earning lots of money without making it too complicated)

My plan to get a lot of money other than fishing was to keep all my milks without selling them until i could afford to buy the 30,000G Food Processing Room to convert the milks into cheese, you will gets lots more money. Though if you decide to do this keep in mind that you can't spent much money and save the most you can..buying one female and male chicken selling the Normal eggs and incubating the Fertilized ones will bring some nice results if you keep selling the male borns and just keep the chicks. You only need one male.

Free Seed Msker from Daryl- Daryl can give you one if you befriend him enough. All i did was talk to him once a day, give him Normal Eggs and experienced a a couple of his scenes were he is making some power experiments and i was able to obtain this item. I got it somewhere near Summer 5.

Strange Hoe from Tim- This requires you to be a bit generous, since i fished quite a lot undearneath the waterall i aquire lots of Nyamames(i don't know if he likes anything less good, like colombos)but thats what i gave him and talked to him once a day. After about ten fishes or so i went to see him while he was inside his room with Ruby in the morning and he gave it to me early in summer.

Weird Hoe from Vesta- I aquired this early in the game i think its by far the easiest item. All i gave Vesta was Goddess Drop Flowers and talked to her and she gave it to me sometime near late spring or early summer in her storage house.

Strange Sickle from Gustafa- Just Give him flowers and talk to him then go to his yurt and he will present it to you. You can also acquire drums from his though i haven't gotten them myself.

Haggling Tips

Another haggling tip is for getting Daachan cheap. When you first click on the thing thaat says Teddy Bear, Van will tell you it's basically crap. Then you can buy it, cancel the buy, or say "Discount?" He'll give you the discount and then pretty much the same thing pops up but instead of "Discount?" you can say "Lower?" say it and Daachan will only cost 960.

When selling stuff to Van you can tell what can items you can raise the price on by selling one of that item. If he holds it for a while staring at it you can raise the price on any other you sell. A few are: any food you cook, fertilized eggs, golden stuff, most fish, hop ore, top grade stuff(S or A), cheese, butter, jade ball, and seeds.

P.S. It helps to either write a list of what you can raise the price on or have another of that item stocked somewhere incase you can raise the price.

Also if you find any items I didn't mention please E-mail me at: djh133@hotmail.com. Thanx!!!

Haggling tricks :)

It is quite easy to get more money from selling your things to van. You probably know how to haggle, but you might not know this. The better friends you are with Van, the greater a chance of haggling you have. Haggling can be a great way to earn money, but there is one thing that you can't do. That's haggle items that cost 100G and below.

Harvest Festival

On Fall Day 5, in the afternoon, you can celebrate the Harvest Festival with Vesta, Marlin, Celia, and Ruby. You go after 12:00 into the Blue Bar. Griffin tells you that the bar is on reserve for the Harvest Festival. Then, Vesta, Marlin, Celia, and Ruby will come in. You will see the characters talk, and then Vesta shares some of her cooking. After you eat, the festival is done. Come again next year!

Help Murrey

When you start this game, you will see a midget caveman. He is Murrey. He always says "Moi".
Here's the important part: Murrey opens up a small Donation place. He will lay on some cloth and put a tuna can out. You find this near Turtle Swamp and the Inner Inn. Talk to Murrey, and he'll beg for money. Give him 50G or 100G. He'll thank you greatly.
One time in the game, if you go to the Food Storage, you'll find him sneaking out food. Your friendship will decrease if you make him give it back. To help him and yourself, put Royal Ferns and Hackberries inside. Then, since they are common, let him have it. (This also happens on your wedding day. You cannot stop him, so put wild grass in there).
After you help him, he will talk about Po-Po Valley. It's his true home, and he needs money to get there. I'm not sure yet if he goes there, but I bet so!

Horse: you can leave your horse anyhere in town or on your farm. no one will take it or steal it, but it might move around a bit.

How to be quick friends with Van

To be friends with Van, the easy way is to watch his diet cutscenes in the Inn. Wait till Van comes on his not-normal selling days and when he goes into the Inn, follow him. Then the event begins with him telling Tim about the diet. When it comes to your opinion about it, select the second option which is "Congradulations!". See this event a couple times and Van will notice you when you walk by. You can also haggle prices too!

How To Upgrade Your "B" Grade Fruit Tree Seeds To "S" Grade!

Fruit from trees make you tons of money, not only are they worth more, but you GET more (around 40) from one tree. Here's how to upgrade fruit tree seeds without spending a fortune on fertilizer:

1. Feed Tartan a "B" grade produce (I usually use a turnip) and an upseed (grows in winter) flower.
2. You'll get a "S" grade produce seed.
3. Now feed Tartan the "S" grade produce seed and a tree fruit; like a banana.
4. You'll get a "S" grade fruit tree seed!

Hybrid trees

Here's all of the hybrid trees and the worth of a B grade seed from them:

Appage (apple+banana) 540g
Gehju (banana+grape) 560g
Jurjum (grape+peach) 470g
Lanmuge (orange+peach) 540g
Magerum (banana+peach) 610g
Mangenge(orange+banana) 540g
Oraphu (apple+orange) 420g
Orahge (orange+grape) 420g
Phuju (apple+grape) 420g
Phurum (apple+peach) 455g

Now, you might be wondering what the point of making hybrid trees is considering a plain banana tree's seeds are worth more than all of these.Well, here's a list of reasons:

1.they make good gifts
2.they are needed for certain recipes
3.BUT THE REAL REASON IS THAT YOU CAN MIX HYBRIDS TOGETHER TO GET "rare" trees which get you A TON OF MONEY!!! You can also mix two rare trees together to get a tree that will make VERY VERY RICH, JUST LIKE ME!!
I haven't made many rare trees myself, so I'm not going to list any here.

Also, if you want to know any crop hybrids of have any questions, email me.

If you want your son to be in a certain career you have to influence him! For instance if you want your son to follow in your footsteps and be a farmer make sure you are friends with Vesta, Celia and Marlin. Also show him farming tools like your hoe, sickle, seeds and watering can. You can also show him fruits and vegetables that you have grown. While you are cultivating a field or watering your crops bring him to the field to watch you. If he asks you questions about farming answer him with the answer which you think will influence him to be a farmer. I hope this helps you =)

Influence Your Son's Career!

Don't like what your son is wanting to become? You can easily change that.
The job choices are:
Artist
Farmer/Rancher
Scholar
Athlete
Musician

The villagers of Forget-Me-Not Valley all fall under these categories except for few.

Artist (A painter) - If you want your child to become an artist, befriend these villager(s): Cody. Cody is the large, buff man living in a trailer-like house near the twin's house. To befriend Cody, give him Old Coins, Ores, and flowers. CARRY YOUR CHILD (WHEN HE IS A TODDLER) TO HIM AND SHOW HIM TO CODY. DO THIS AT LEAST TWICE A DAY.
To collect Old Coins and Ores, go over the bridge towards where Vesta's farm is. After going over the bridge, turn left, and continue to run down alongside the river until you find the end, where a tent stands. In front of the tent is a dig site. Go inside the dig site, and if you find the Professor in there, talk to him and ask to dig. Sometimes you'll find blue Ores and orange Ores.
Flowers grow throughout Forget-Me-Not Valley, you can find them easily.

Athlete (A runner, or exerciser) - If you want your child to become an athlete, befriend these villager(s): Wally, and his son, Hugh. Wally's wife is Chris, the girl with the reddish-blond hair and glasses. They live next to Samantha and her daughter Kate. To befriend Wally and Hugh, give them eggs and crops. You can find eggs in your chicken coop, under your chickens. (Roosters don't lay eggs <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/a_tongue.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> ). SHOW YOUR CHILD (WHEN HE IS A TODDLER) TO THEM. DO THIS AT LEAST TWICE A DAY.

Farmer/Rancher (He will grow to take over the family farm, and do what you do) - If you want your child to become a farmer/rancher, befriend these villager(s): Vesta, Marlin, and Celia (if you haven't married Celia.) If you married Celia, your child will most likely choose to become a farmer automatically. Another way to help him become a farmer is to show him the barn and all the tools you work with: watering can, sickle, hoe, etc. etc.
To befriend Vesta, give her Goddess Drops (flowers that grow by her farm during the spring and summer), crops, and eggs.
To befriend Marlin, give him eggs and milk.
To befriend Celia, give her Goddess Drops.
SHOW YOUR CHILD (AS A TODDLER) TO THEM. DO THIS AT LEAST TWICE A DAY.

Scholar (Scientist who works on experiments) If you want your child to become a scholar, befriend these villager(s): Daryl. Daryl is the freaky scientist guy who enters your farm sometimes to examine your cow(s). He has black spiky hair and glasses. His face is thin and he wears a lab coat. To befriend Daryl, give him fish, eggs, and Old Coins.
SHOW YOUR CHILD (AS A TODDLER) TO THEM. DO THIS AT LEAST TWICE A DAY.

Musician (Guitar player or piano player/singer) If you want your child to become a musician, befriend these villager(s): Gustafa, Griffin, and Lumina. Gustafa is kind of like a hippie. He wears a tall, green hat with a four-leaf clover on it, and carries around a guitar on his back. He also decks out in round, purple sunglasses. To befriend Gustafa, give him flowers, human statues (found at the dig site) and ores.
Griffin is the bartender at the Blue Bar, where Muffy also works. To befriend Griffin, give him milk and eggs.
Lumina is the little girl who plays the piano at her grandmother's (Romana's) mansion. To befriend Lumina, give her flowers and eggs.

Info about your children

Nami's Child: He is very shy and mostly stays near his home. He has high career goals to be a Artist or a Musician but you can change his mind.

Muffy's child: He loves it when you throw him up in the air. He likes walking through the town and be naughty. He will become any of the careers EXCEPT Farmer and breeder unless you influence him to be that career.

Celia's Child:He will be a great farmer if you let him be. He loves to be snuggled when he's a toddler and he loves farming and animals.

Judge Rarity of a Fish

In order to see how a rare a fish is normally, you would have to wait until after you catch it, there is another way though. While fishing, you will notice that you will feel the fish hit the bobber, but not take it under yet for you to press 'A' and catch it. The trick is to see how many "hits" it does. The more the hits, the more rare and more money you'll get for the fish.

Duck are worth more than chickens!

1.In year 1 buy a pond.

2.Buy female chickens. Have enough room for 3 more.
You need the extra space for this to work.

3. In year 2 wake up AFTER your wife.
She will tell you there are ducks in the pond.
P.S. You may need to try more than once.

4.The ducks will be a boy and a girl.
The ducks dont lay eggs. The girl is pretty much useless!
The eggs are found under the chickens
believe it or not! The only male poultry you
need is the Male duck. You can put the
fertilized DUCK eggs in the incubater. In a few
day it will hatch. Wait till its bigger and sell
it. You will get your moneys worth! It may take a while, since they are worth like 600 G.
But, I swear this does bring in more then sellin

Major Money!

Ok listen up. Seeds( obviously )are more expensive than the fruit itself. I've experimented with this for a while, so here it is.
At the beginning of the game, or anytime, save your money. One-by-one buy each tree seed. Plant all of them in the field next to your house, but plant them in a road. You'll have a few gaps but it's ok for now. Time goes by and you have your trees. Now befriend Daryl, the weird mad scientist guy, and he'll give you the seed maker. Note: SAVE YOUR FRUIT! At the end of your year, or as they come, make seeds with your seed maker. Then befriend Takakura and Tartan will come. Then befriend Tartan. Don't get pissed just yet. Just talk to him for,like, all morning for 2-4 days and the hybrid option will apear. With your ''saved'' up fruit seeds make make 2nd generation crops and plant them in the open gaps and in the field next to your chicken coop. Still you'll have open gaps, thats ok. Then a while later you'll have those trees. Hybrid them into 3rd generation crops and fill up the empty spaces. Now lets rack in the money. Right now I'm really far in the game and hold on to your seats......have 3,500,950 gold. Yes....and in one , yes one, month made more than 400,000 gold. One 3rd generation seed is in the thousands. E-mail me for questions or when it works. It might take a while, but hey, it's worth it.

Nami is extremely fickle, it is extremely hard to get her to like you, its really frickin frustrating too.

Unless... you give her cooked meals (not the unrecognizable ones either). Ummm, I tried all that crap with giving her statues from the dig site and fall flowers, but she's never really satisfied or grateful. She's always like, " I didn't say I wanted it, but if you insist." and shoves it in her pocket.

But when you offer her cooked dishes, she'll say something like, "That looks really good" and you say "Try It." and she says, "Me?... Thanks!" and the big thing about that is the red hearts in her diary shoot up really quickly. We're talking a short cut into Nami's heart here.

Also, I don't know how true to form this is, but she wouldn't accept the blue flower from me unless we were in her bedroom and I had seen that she had four red hearts for me right before I offered it to her.

Nami at the bar

During year one or so,if you have a pretty good relation with Nami,go to the bar at 6:00 pm.a cut scene will appear with Nami.at the end of it,though,She'll get shy and leave and Muffy will say she forgot to make her pay(you decide to pay for Nami or you laugh in her face)XD

Nami. The easiest way to get her. Please just read this!

People say the easiest way to win Nami's heart is to give her Fall flowers, food, things from the mine, etc. But please hear me out. This requires no picking flowers, digging, cooking, anything! Just don't sell your Milker at the begining of the game. If you hold the Milker in your hands and show it to her everyday, she'll say "Is that a Milking Machine? Neat." Then she'll laugh. If you do this everyday, I guarantee she'll love you by the end of the year. And any flowers, ores, fossils, or statues you might've gotten for her, you can now sell for money. And you don't have to break Celia's or Muffy's heart. I'm married to her. And this was all I did. Just try it.

Nami's Son

I married nami and everything, and during chapter 4 "happy farm life," I actually deleted that game because my son was so *bleep*ed. He's a teenager, and he gets all depressed and basically hates you and his life, and says stuff like "maybe it would have been better if i'd never been born." It gets really annoying and no one wants to have a son like that. So if you're thinking about marrying nami, keep this in mind.

Need Help With Money?

Okay, so some of you are probably playing the game thinking you know everything there is to know about making the money in this game, RIGHT? WRONG!! Here are three tips to make you rich!

1. Befriend Ruby and go into the kitchen(her kitchen, when she's alone, but you have to do it when it's exactly a time, no 9:29 am.)She will ask you if you cook a-lot, say yes. she will give you a Ruby Spice, a spice she found or something..and then, go home, go to your kitchen part, select Soup as your recipe. Then make the only ingredient the Ruby Spice. Duplicate it 99 times(you can only hold 99 in you rucksack) but put 99 in your fridge, food storage, and shelf, but also your rucksack(backpack) then, when van comes to town, sell all of them EXCEPT 1, to keep duplicating..this does take a while, but it's REALLY easy money.;D
2. Buy the banana tree seed from Vesta(I know, i know, "BUY"? It pays off in the long run), plant it, and let it grow..then, when the crops start arriving, buy the seed maker. put ALL of the bananas in the seed maker. Sell these to van and you make a LARGE sum of dough!OOOHHH-YESS~.^!
(You can do this with any tree fruit, but banana is worth more, and this does work, because I made like 50,000g!!)
3. Buy a female cow, any breed will do, and buy a miracle potion when she is old enough. When she has her baby(which takes 3 seasons), she will give milk. Now, if you do the two steps above during the time the cow is pregnant, you will have enough to buy the Food Processing Room(30,000g). Now use most of your milk and turn it into cheese and butter. Buying chickens and selling the eggs, the milk, the cheese, AnD the butter, and you will make A WHOLE bunch of moo-lah!

Hope these tips are helpful..and i hope you prosper>.<

If you are holding any wild plant, go talk to Wally (the excercising person, I think that's his name...)and show him it. He'll say first, 'Is that plant safe for the body?' or something, then show him again, and he'll say 'around here'.
---------------------------------
If you are married to Muffy, she'll say 'I was thinking of getting new dishes' or something, then talk again, and she'll say 'Wasn't in the kitchen.'
----------------------------------
If you are watching the TV, on the day is says 'Traszlator V' or something, the lady will say, 'Even polar bear?' to ask if it can translate polar bear, and you push A. Then wors are supposed to come up, but it's all blank!!

Rare, Valuable Fish

Looking for rare and valuable fish to use as your main source of income? Is the stream, spring and pond not rewarding enough? Travel up to the dig site, and aim your Fishing Pole at the huge boulder underneath the waterfall. Your red bait should pass through it. Now wait until you get a bite, and reel in your catch. Below is a list of the rare fish that are possible to be caught at the waterfall and their chance of being caught.

Arna - 35%
Big Arna - 15%

Rock likes fodder

Ok, so call me crazy, but I want to be friends with everyone in town and so I always give people presents.
I found Rock one day hanging around the Spite's house, and decided to give him something. I didn't have any pre-cooked food in my bag so i tried everything.
He doesn't like fish, he doesn't like milk or eggs, he doesn't want fresh crops or any flowers or wild edible plants. What DOES this boy like?!

So it turns out he likes fodder. Regular, cut on your farm fodder.

Making Rock your friend is free, and you don't have to give him things you could sell for much $$$

Want to save money? Well heres the list of things you can do.
1. Don't buy the light or normal tools, instead just use the "More Time" tip and use the heavy tools.

2. Dont buy the good fooder, just settle with the fact that you wont be abel to get S milk. (Mod Note: It's been said that you can get S-Milk using not-good fodder)

3. Don't use miralce potion. (I do advise breeding them but just use bulls from your farm, its too expensive to use the ones from other farms.)

4. Don't buy chickens till you are far into the game. (Early in year 2 you will get some ducks (if you built the pond ($2500) in year one) and they lay eggs so until you can handle all of thoes animals bont buy the chickens)

Personally, I think that it is cooler to have just the sounds of nature (Not that they are very good!), but it is up to you. If you agree with me, you should sell both records for more money! First, sell the one that you don't have in the player, then turn off the music. Go to turn it on, but say no when it asks you if you want to turn it on. Now it will ask you if you want to eject it. Say yes and now you can sell it! <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> (The music player is in your room in front of your bed!)

Some Harvest Help, Kinda Long

Okay, here are just some tips for all you noobs, or people who just need help.

What All Avalible Brides Like
Muffy-Easiest to marry
Works-The Bar
Likes-All flowers, ores you can find at the dig, eggs, milk
Wake Up Time-10:00am
Tip-If you want marry Muffy don't waste your time at the dig or your money on milk and eggs, just give here flowers every day at 10:00am. Her diary to say how much she likes you is in the flower pot in the bar.

Celia-Medium to marry
Works-farm across the bridge
Likes- All flowers, ores, crops
Wake Up Time-7:00am
Tip-Just as with Muffy, if you want to marry Celia, just give her flowers every morning. Her diary is her bed in her room in the loft of the house on the farm.

Nami-Hardest To Marry
Works-Nowhere, just wanders around, lives in the inn (lazy bum)
Likes-fossils, trick blue(fall flower), marinade(a salad you cook)
Wake Up Time- around 1:00am, 2:00am, I think, i don't know alot about Nami cuz who would want to mary the loser
Tip-Her diary is in her room in the inn, it is the purple book on her desk.

Tartan
Okay, when Takakaura goes into his house, you should get a video(it might only happen in year 2, im not sure) where theres a 2 headed flower in his house aclled Tartan. You need to talk to Tartan alot so you can hybrid. After you get hybrid, you can make hybrid crops, and its also an easy way to get S grade seeds. To get S seeds, in winter go up to dig site, around there you will find an upseed flower. Go to Tartan and hybrid a seed (bannana if your not dumb) wioth the upseed, it wil then be S grade.

Money, Money, Money
Okay, this is the easiest way to get money. First BUY A BANNA TREE. Right when you start out start giving Daryl(the mad scientist with the black hair) snelt, a fish you catch in the river. Give it to him everyday so you can befreind him. After he is your freind, go into his lab and he will tell about a seedmaker he made. He will then give it to you and it will be in your tool storage. You should have planted your banna tree as soon as possible. When it blooms in the summer, get the bannas from it and put them all in the seed maker. After a while get the seeds and sell them to Van, they make tons.

Kids
Okay, whatever yuo want your kid to be, here is some help.

Artist- Befreind and show your kid to Cody, the bug black guy. Cody likes, coins, flowers and ores.

Musician-Befriend Gustafa, Lumina and Griffin, Gustafa like flowers, and ores, Lumina like flowers, and Griffin likes all columbo (a fish you catch in rivers, but you find the most in
turtle swamp) Show your kid to these people.

Athlete-Befreind Wally and Hugh. They like eggs and crops)Show your kid to them too.
Farmer/Rancher-Befreind Marlin, and Vesta, Vesta likes flowers and Marlin likes golden eggs, and I think crops. Show your kid to them

Farmer Rancher- Befreind Vesta, Marlin and Celia(if you didn't marry her) Vesta and Celia like flowers, and Marlin likes golden eggs, and i think crops. SHOW YOUR KID TO THEM!

To help your kid like you better, talk to him alot and give him aqnd show him things.

Animals
TAKE CARE OF YOUR ANIMALS. Brush them everyday, (you buy brush from van), feed them , and DO NOT leave them in the rain or snow. Talk to them everyday and hug them too. Milk your cows twice a day, once in am and once in pm. Do not ride your horse in the rain or snow, and when your pets get dirty wash them in the water trough outside.
Okay, about chickens. Right when you start out, BUY A CHICKEN. First a hen then a rooster, then, instead of buying more chickens, put a fertilized egg in the incubator. You need a rooster if you want ferilized eggs . If the chick is a boy, sell him and do uit again, do this until you have all hens and oone rooster. Hug your chickens every day and get their eggs every day too. If you hug them, over time they will give you good golden eggs. (Dont waste on Marlin, he's a loser)

I HOPE ALL THIS HELPED!!!

The Alarm Clock requires No Effort

Many people assume that you must be friends with the characters in order to get things from them. Early in Chapter 2 (2 or 3 days) i awoke early and went outside. I saw Grant (walking across the bridge), whom I have never actually met/talked to until this point and he led me to his house whereupon he proceeded to give me his alarm clock.

Hence...as long as your in the right place in the right time you don't need to even meet Grant!

THE SECRET TO THE DIG SITE!!! :)

I have been looking for a way to find more at the dig site and I could never find anything. After doing some testing and observations, I found out some cool facts. Sometimes it gets frustrating when you never find anything for a while. But now the secret's out. If you go to the dig site at ten don't expect to find much past three. The big secret is you almost always find exactly ten things if you stay the full amount of time. Most or all of them you will find before three (if you come at ten). So come when you want and then keep digging until you find ten things. Now you won't have to waste anymore time. <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/smile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" /> Oh, by the way, if it is a couple of hours before three and you have already found your ten things, keep digging until three.

The Stages of the Cow's Miracle Potion

If you decide to have a calf, then know the stages.
1: You buy the potion for a female cow. After a few days, the cow will mate a bull (brought to the farm from Takakura. You cannot keep him).
2: The cow is now pregnant.
3: The utter will become red and dark. You cannot milk it now. Nik, Nak, and Flak will set up a pen in the barn. While your cow is in the pen, it cannot come outside. Give her lots of love.
4: Congratulations! Your cow has given birth. Nik, Nak, and Flak will tell you what gender the calf is. No matter what gender, the Sprites will set up a Calf Hut outside.
5: To feed your new calf, give it fodder. Plus, the mother will give "Baby's Milk". It looks like a bottle. Feed the calf twice a day with the milk.
6: Great! You raised a new calf correctly. He/she will grow big and strong! If it is a bull, you cannot milk him. If it is a female, grab the milker after a few days and milk her. Milk with the milker for 2 days (to be safe) and now you may milk by hand. Now be happy with your calf and let it graze in the sunshine (not the rain)!

Instead of giving her your crops which she likes give her cooked food because if you give her a crop she will just tell you later that she gave it to Ruby but if you give her food she will tell you how great your cooking is! but my favorite way to get her to like you along with gifts she likes is to catch a really big fish and show it her because she will be very impressed that you caught it but won't take from you so you can just show it to her every day! doing these along with getting her heart scenes right she will love you in no time!

Win Nami's heart

Most of my friends wanted to marry Nami in the game but never knew how. So I will tell you what I told them. In order to win Nami's heart you should bring her Fossils from the dig, Trick Blue flowers, or Tomelo Salad (tomato+melon) everyday. Don't give her single crops of fruits, she only gives them to Ruby. Show her the cow milker evreyday and she usually giggles and smiles, increasing your chance. If you catch a large fish show it to her, she will be inpressed. ANother way to increase your chances is by breaking Celias and Muffys heart. Show them the blue feather about every three days, they ask if it's theirs, deny them. More hearts will appear in Nami's diary if you deny others. Only ask Nami to marry you once. If she denys you, don't worry, she might appear in the second chapter on the first day of spring asking to move in. But to be sure save on the 7th day of winter and if it doesn't turn out like that just reset and spoil her more. She'll come around.
Times: Nami has odd sleeping hours, and it's hard to get into her room to see her diary. Here are some times I have found.
1:00 am - 9:00 am
unknown - 7:00 am
5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
If she doesn't asnwer the door wait a few seconds (preferably 12) and knock again. She comes out at odd times. Once married she will sound unsatisfied with farm life, bring her a fossil everyday to spruce up her day.Hope that helped!!!

Invisible Calf

So I went out one morning to feed my new baby cow in the calf hutch, but she wasn't there! I pressed Z and peeped in, but she still wasn't there! I even went into the building and out again, and she was still missing! Then she just randomly appeared from the inner right side of the hutch. Phew!

If you plant a new tree beside a fully grown tree, it will wilt and die. Then on a random morning, a mole creature will appear in front of your house. It will say something similar to: "You can't plant a tree near a tree. The tree sucks up all the nutrients and the tre...........o................"
The mole will then disappear.

Romana locked inside her own room!

Ok, so I was trying to get Romana's cut scene for the watering can, so I kept entering her room and exiting. Eventually, when I was in her room, it was time for her to leave, so she asked me to get out. I got out, but decided to go into her room one more time just to piss her off. But when I knocked on the door, it said that it was locked! She was still in there! After about 2 mins of knocking and being rejected, she finally walked out of her room. This only happened to me once.. I haven't tried it since, so I don't know if it would work again.

Selling Errors

Natsume has left in a few spelling errors in "Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life".
When you go to the "Ledger", select "Order Animals" then "Sheep". Look at the text box in the bottom of the screen. It reads "Mae Only" instead of the correct spelling: "Male Only".
Verified by: Toffee8899 Submitted by: CheatHarvester on December 18, 2009

Typos!

This is unusual within popular games, such as Harvest Moon, to have bad spelling and grammar.

If you show your son to Marlin, (the man who works for Vesta), he will say, "I really not good with kids, but...cute..." When he should have said, "I'm really not good with kids, but...cute..."

When you go to the ledger, select "Order Animals". There, you will find many animals listed. If you click the sheep, it will say "Mae Only" when it should be "Male Only".

Later on in the years, when you have become elderly, your wife will ask you, "Have you taken a bath yet?" The options for answering are, "Already have." and, "Yes." Where is the "No" option?

In year one, if you talk to Hugh (Wally, the athlete's, son), he will say, "The north words is strange."

In year one, if you talk to Nami (the red-headed traveler who stays at the Inner Inn), she will say, "A woman's heart is as unpredictable as the autumn weather in Forget-Me-Not Valley. You know want I mean?"... Way to kill the moment, Nami.

Go to Romana's Villa, and enter her bedroom. Talk to her, and she says, "Oh, [your character's name], nice too see you, dear." Instead of, "Oh, [your character's name], nice to see you, dear."

In your elderly days, a cut-scene appears, and it shows Takakura talking by the beach. He says, "When did you come here for the fist time...?" instead of, "When did you come here for the first time...?"

This isn't technically a typo, but it's sort of a glitch.
In any year, take your Breeze record and show it to Kassey, the pyrotechnician who has a twin brother named Patrick. Tell him it's his, and he'll say, "You're not bad for a young'un. Can't wait to taste it."

While growing a grape tree, if you walk up to the tree and select it with "A", it will say, "A new Grapes tree."

This isn't technically a typo, but it's sort of a glitch.
If you show a flower to Vesta, she will say, "How are you feeling, guy? You've got something tasty! Can I have some...?"

If you go to order an item, and select "Bird Feed", it will say, "Order a Bird Feed?"

Those are all the typos I've noticed! It's still an awesome game, though. :]

99 Toys

After chapter 2 begins, you can purchase a Ball, Blocks, and a Wooden Car from Van for your child. Usually you place these in the toybox in your house, but if you instead put them on the shelf in your tool room, you can go back to Van and purchase another one of each. While you can't buy more than one at once, if you continue to buy them one at a time, and put them on your tool room shelf, you can get up to 99 of each, and then buy one last one to put back in the toybox. This does not work with the Scratchpad. This trick is useful, as some of the town residents like the toys as gifts.

A simple way to get Nami.

This is all I did to get her:

Try to get as many hearts as you can with Celia and Muffy. Then, use the blue feather (you get it in the summer) on Celia and Muffy. When they say is it for them, say no. Usually, Celia doesn't liked being teased with false marriage, so her hearts will go down quickly. From doing this, Nami will gain hearts for you since you've been denying the others.

another way to win hearts

I find this the more easy way to win hearts but it only works with muffy and celia. since muffy works at the bar go talk to griffin and buy some drinks for yourself and muffy will like you more! (i bought three stone oils and muffy went to three red hearts instead of two). and with celia its easier because you can just keep buying seeds while at the bar you cant.

Cut-scenes with Nami (Before Marriage)

These are basically all the scenes with Nami.
I never married her before so I don't know what happens in them.
I got them from a friend. But decided to marry Celia instead.

1 heart: Leave your house around 2:30 P.M.

2 hearts: Enter the bar when only Nami, Muffy,
and Griffon are inside.

3 hearts: Enter your house around 8.

4 hearts: Enter the Inner Inn around 10 P.M.

4 hearts: Enter the Inner Inn late winter.

Sorry everyone... I know I wasn't very informative
about the times. But unfortunately this is all
I know. If you need help getting the scenes I have a 3

How to produce lots of animals at a lower cost..

This tip is good for beginners. I found that the best way to get lots of animals for free is to:
1. Buy a cheap male cow to mate with your girl cow.
2. Buy a rooster and a hen and get fertilized eggs, put these in the incubator. If you look after your chickens well you will get golden eggs that you can sell to Van for 300g or more each.
After making money on the milk, gold and infertile eggs, buy another cheap girl cow. This is all you need to buy as the babies should start to come along in a year.
You only need one rooster so you can have more egg layers at one time (7 hens 1 rooster). Just sell any roosters that hatch, only when they grow up as they will go for more gold. The same applies to the bulls, you only need one.

Hope this is usefull.

You would be dilousional if you kept it, after all,, you CAN kill it**grins**... Don't leave it in the rain, it's imune to rain(meaning the *bleep* won't get sick). When it's sunny, put your animals outside by the bell and find your goat in the pasture and push into the barn!! The reason, the goat can stay healthy by eating your grass. Keep him inside and don't fill his food bin. After about a month(season, whatever) of this doing the thing will get sick. Keep it sick. After ANITHER month of not treating your goat, the Harvest Sprites will awake you and you will go to the barn and watch your goat die. It looks rather funny actually...

Money Day Plan

Here is a good day plan that helps you get a lot of stuff:
Wake up at 1:00am. That means going to bed at 8pm. Then you go through town and look for herbs and flowers. Because flowers are a good way to make some money. By then, your animals should be awake, so you can feed them and milk the cows. While there, water you're crops if you have them. Spend the rest of the day fishing or mining. Bring your horse with you so it gets some exercise.

Ruby Spice Tips

- Ruby Spice Duplicate -

- First of all, befriend Ruby by giving her a flowers, milk, or other various things each day. Keep it up until you become friends with her. You'll know she's your friend once she looks at you when you pass by.

-After befriending her, catch her inside the Inn's kitchen. She'll ask if your hungry / do you cook at home. Say yes and she'll tell you to hold on and she'll give you one Ruby Spice and tell you to run along and make something to eat.

- Head back to your farm and into your house, go to the stove and press A. A menu will pop up. Choose Salad or Soup and then put the Ruby Spice in, nothing else. press start to finish it and boom! Another Ruby Spice. Press B to put it away and repeat until you have 99.

- The Chains of Ruby Spice Selling to Van -

-Once you have gotten 99 Ruby Spices, head to the Tool Room, or was it called a Ledger? I'm not sure, but its directly across from the Storage room. Head in there and put 98 of the Spices in the cabinet and go in back to your house and make even more spices, put them into the cabinet, and repeat until Van comes into town. Put 99 in your backpack and head to him as quickly as you can.

- Sell him all 99, unless you've made extras that are sitting in the cabinet, sell only 98.

- Head back to the storage and grab the other 99, sell to Van, and repeat. On your last set of 99 Ruby Spices, sell only 98.Or else you won't be able to make any more Ruby Spices. Its Wise to save before selling the last batch, or else you'll sell all of them by accident.
