Various Cheats and Hints
This trick requires two memory cards, with a game on each . (for a total of 8 blocks!) game 'A' is the one wich will get the money. Game 'B' will just be used to get the money. Get a cow on game 'B' and then save, and trade it to game 'A'. Repeat, reapeat, repeat, then if you want you can sell them on game 'A', so you start with lots of money on your main game.
Popuri is easy to get to like you, because she actually likes weeds(!) This means you can plase her everyday.
In Winter, mine a lot in the winter mine, take your basket if you have one. Sell all the Mystrile, waste all the junk, keep all the Orichalcons, and keep 3 Adamantites. Put all the Orichalcons you get in your cabinet, so you can get girls presents later through the year.
When your at the open day, time stops, so you can fish forever! (well, until either your character or you gets tired.)
Only use this cheat if you want Popuri to like you. When Popuri gives you an egg, hatch it as soon as possible, and name it Popuri, this will take your relationship up at least another heart level.
In your front yard,if you have 100 flowers grown in your field bees will come and make honey you can do these things with the honey sell it,eat it give it to anybody in the game.

Hint: Easy money:
Note: This trick requires two memory cards and a file which has some type of animal (preferably cows or sheep). Copy the file to memory card two, then play the game on either file. Go to your diary and choose to exchange animals. Have an animal come in from the other memory card. When this is done, sell the animal repeat as many times as needed.
Hint: Save money:
Do not get the fourth and last upgrade for the watering can. The third upgrade reaches the same amount of squares as does the fourth.
Hint: Always full watering can:
In the Winter, go to the mine on the island in the lake. Dig down until you see a cave on the north wall. Go in and fill your watering can from the pond. After that, your watering can will have unlimited water.
Hint: Quick tool upgrades:
Use your tool until it is 400%. Then mine for a Blue Stone and make sure you have at least 5000G. Take the stone, the 5000G, and the tool wish to upgrade to the blacksmith, and he will upgrade it for you.
Hint: More ore while mining:
The following trick requires the Harvest Basket and the Final Rucksack. Bring the Harvest Basket with you to the mine. Set it down and start mining. You should be able to deposit ore into the Harvest Basket. The basket can get full after a while. Empty it out by facing a bin and pressing Square. When you are tired, just heal at the Hot Spring Pool. This also works well in winter.
Hint: Other seeds:
There are seeds you can plant that are not located at the Supermarket. During any weekday, after 8:00 a.m., go to the Inn (this is also the bar). The peddler will be to the right of the stairs. Talk to him, and he will sell you seeds not available at the Supermarket (Pinneapple, Cabbage, Green Pepper, and assorted flower and fruit).
Hint: Power Berry locations:
Get 1001 medals in horse races.
Give an egg to the water fall and everyday the Harvest Goddess will appear. One day she will give you the Power Berry.

Hint: Choose who wins Cooking Festival:

If you have Ann with a blue heart she will ask you to deliver three eggs for about three days. Note: You must not be married.
If you have Elli with a blue heart she will ask you to taste her sandwich for three days. All of them are different. You must be on the farm at noon for three days, but you must not be married.
If you like Elli, give her flowers or Orangecup at Spring 16 to increase your relationship.
In Summer Year 2, on the day before the fireworks display, ask Kai to go with you. You will be better friends with him. Note: You first need to be friends with him, and cannot be married.
Use the following trick for an easy way to get Karen to like you. Get the biggest rucksack, and get the winery lady to sell you as many wines as you can hold. Then, give them all to Karen. If you are fast, you can make two trips a day.
This trick requires the largest house and icebox (refrigerator) and the largest rucksack. Go to the wine maker's house and buy nine bottles of wine. Bring it home and put it in your icebox. Continue this until they are closed for the day. When they are closed, take nine bottles out and give them to Karen. This works very well. I can get about 63 bottles a day because of this.
Buy the last rucksack and buy as much wine as you can carry. Go to Karen and she will blush. Her love meter will go up with every nine bottles or so. After that is done, go to the place where the cedar tree is located. Collect as many flowers as you can hold and bring them to her. Also at the hot spring once at the start of the game, she will appear and say that you are looking sad. She will ask what is wrong. Answer "Love life" and her love meter will turn purple. She will console you every time you have a problem. Try to find where the winter flower is located and her love meter will go up. At the Cooking Festival, talk to her only and she will win and like you more.
If you have Karen on a blue heart she will give you Moon Drop Seeds at some point. Note: You must not be married to anyone.
If you like Karen, give her wine as much as you can at Fall 15 to better your relationship.
If you have Mary with a blue heart she will lend you a book called something like the "Wood Cutter And The King". Go to the library the next day and say that you liked that book. Note: You must not be married to anyone.
If you like Mary, give her a Mushroom at Winter 20 to increase your relationship.
If you like Popuri and want to marry her, get your bag fully upgraded, your house upgraded at least twice, and give her as many flowers as you can. After a day of doing that, her heart will have gone up by one. Repeat this for at least two weeks for a red heart. You can enter the Harvest Festival on the first year and put in a Poisonous Mushroom; second year a Wild Berry; third year another Wild Berry; and so on. However, also talk to her every day at the Hotspring. Some times she will ask questions, but reply with the kindest answers because it will affect your love life with her.
If you have Popuri with a blue heart she will give you an egg. Note: You must not be married to anyone.
If you like, Popuri, give her a Spa Boiled Egg or Toy Flowers at Summer 3 to increase your relationship.
Your anniversary will not appear on your calendar. If you know the date, enter your house at 12 o'clock in the day. There will be food on the table. Speak to your wife. go outside and when you come back inside, the food will be gone. Also, your anniversary is activated after 12 in the day.
Hint: Fast forward speeches:
To make the long speeches that everybody seems to give go faster press Circle. However, if they ask you a question such as "Do you really want to?" and you are still holding Circle, the answer you will select is the bottom choice, which is usually "No.
Hint: Make your wife leave:
Give your wife many things that she hates (preferably weeds) until her heart turns black, and she has no hears on the start menu screen. Then, go to sleep. The next day the game will state that your wife is gone and you will shake your head.
Note: If you make your wife go away, you cannot marry another girl. They will all be gone until you apologize to your old wife.
Use the following trick to rid of weeds and your wife. Give her lots of weeds until a purple or black heart appears or your weeds are gone. Then, go to sleep and a " Huh? (your wife's name) is gone". If you want your wife back, go to her house. If she is not there, look in the bedroom. If you do not want her back, leave her there.
Hint: Prevent hot house from being destroyed:
To prevent your hot house from being destroyed, just put your dog inside.
To confess for anything that you have done, go to the door at the top left corner of the church. Pastor Carter cannot be standing in that room or this will not work. Sometimes you can choose an option stating that you littered. You will litter any time you throw unwanted items from fishing. To get rid of your garbage without littering, go to the Rose Square. There is a garbage can there. Use it to avoid making the Fairy Goddess mad.
Hint: Throw items far:
If you are holding an item, stand on top of some steps and throw the item down. This also works if you stand on a bridge.
Hint: More money for honey:
If you plant flowers on your farm and have a beehive, give some honey (worth 10G) to Louis. A day later he will say that it was a rare species and you will get more money for the honey.
Hint: Save money on animals:
If you want more animals, go to the Yodel Ranch and go to Barley. Buy the Animal Potion (the one to make them pregnant) for 1000G. Go back to your farm and sprinkle it over the animal. The animal must be over one year old and not sheared for this to work. Also, make sure it is the correct animal. In about 22 days, your animal will have a baby. It saves you buying a cow for 6000G or a sheep for 3000B. Note: The Yodel Ranch is closed on Mondays.
Hint: Free chickens:
When Rick asks if you can take care of his chickens, answer "Yes". When you take one egg and put it in the incubator, he will take the chickens away but not the egg. The egg will become a chick and grow up and lay eggs.
Hint: Easy animals:
Play the game until you can afford to get an animal (sheep or cow), then buy it. That night, save it in another slot, and repeat saving in different slots for your desired amount of animals. Then, start a new game, load it, and take the one animal from each slot and transfer to the new game. If desired, transfer them all to the old game.
When you want a lot of money, buy a cow or sheep on one game, and save that game. Exchange that animal with another file, but do not save the original file. Keep trading the cow/sheep/chicken with the other file until they are at maximum, then go into that file and trade over so the original file has maximum. On whichever file you want the money on, sell all 5/10/20 animals, then switch over and exchange more and sell those.
Get a cow, sheep, or chicken in one base file. Save you base file. Start a new game and save it to a different slot than you base file. Go to your base file and choose to exchange animals. Send the cow (for example) over to your new file and overwrite it. Go to your Diary, and choose "Read Diary". Go to the new file that you sent your cow to, without saving your base file. Now that you are in your new file, send the cow back to the base file. Go to your Diary and choose "Read Diary". Go to your base file without saving your new file. Your base file should now have two cows. You can get up to ten cows if you do not have the barn extension. Repeat the steps from "Go to your base file and choose to exchange animals" onward until you have ten cows. Once you have ten cows on your base file, save it, then send them over to your new file. Without saving your base file, go to your new file and you will have ten cows on each file. You can sell the ones on your new file, but do not sell the ones on your base file -- so you can keep going to your base file and sending them over to your new file. Note: If you take cows from the base file it will rewrite the base file with no cows, so you have to send cows from you base file.
Hint: Non-stop help:
This is especially useful when you are full on animals and it becomes difficult to feed them, talk to them, and tend their products. Give the harvest sprites flour bags every day for the first year so their heart-o-meter is full. Then in two sections of four, send them every other week to help the animals. While one group is helping you, give flour bags to the four that are not helping. They will do an excellent job of taking care of your animals and you do not need to worry about them until the end of the day when, if desired, you can talk to them to raise their heart levels slightly quicker.
Hint: Recycling garbage:
If you cook garbage you get from fishing, you can give it to May or cook it and give the ruined food to Karen.
Hint: Run like an Olympic runner:
To run like an Olympic runner, go outside of the mine located behind the waterfall. Stand at the top of the steps, face away from the mine and press Circle.
Hint: Strong fence for animal pasture:
At the beginning, save the rocks in the bottom corner or other place. When you clear the fields, use these to set up a fence.
This glitch may happen in your 5th year. Go to the library on a Wednesday around 12 p.m. and it will be closed. Read the sign and it will say that is closed on Wednesdays, instead of being closed on Mondays as it is supposed to be.
Glitch: Animal birthday:
When an animal such as a cow or sheep is supposed to be born on a major holiday, it will be born the next day but still have the birthday on that holiday. You can milk or shear the once pregnant sheep or cow the day it was supposed to be born.
Glitch: Invisible crops:
If you plant orange cup crops in any season except from Winter, they will grow but you cannot see them. You cannot walk through them, so if you want to know if they are ready you should try and pick on every day until you manage to get one. They take nine days to grow.
In the Clinic, the Doctor says "Bodigizer" when you ask for medicine, but if you look in the bookcase behind Elli, it is spelled as "Bodigzer".
