All Harvest Moon games basically have the energy system, but I only know how many stamina points the things give you in these two games! So if you are feeling tired during your game, try a few of these things! Item Stamina Points Meat Dumpling 10 points Rice Ball 20 points Croissant 30 points Cake 25% of your power!!! Lunch 50% of your power!!! Milk 10 points Green Tea 20 points Wild Grape Juice 30 points Apple Juice 50% of your power!!! Orange Juice 100%! All of your power! Swim in the Hot Spring 20% of your points each time(so you can jump in and out!) It is easiest to instead of buying apple juice or orange juice and cakes which are expensive, just jump in and out of the hot springs 5-6 times! * Tips/Tricks * Harvest Moon GB Tips There are a quite a few tips/tricks, so let's get on with them! When you are entering your name, depending on how you enter it, you will get to plant certain crops! 1)Capitalize the first letter in your name to grow Eggplants and Carrots 2)Make the first letter in your name lowercase to grow Peanuts and Broccoli 3)Make the first character in your name a heart or any other symbol to grow all four crops! During the fall, if you have a lot of money from summer, go to the restaraunt and buy a lot of food so that you don't have to worry about buying it for a while! During the summer, try to get at least one cow. Try to clear your field during the first spring, it won't take long and you won't have to worry about weeds or anything else for a long long time.(and if you have the farm cleared it'll raise your farming stats at the end of the year.) Try to plant at least 8 fields of grass before fall(so you can get a cow and have a lot of fodder for Winter). When you buy a chicken, buy only one, then just breed it. Breed your chicken until you have four, and occasionally sell one and breed another. Take your cow outside at least once every few days(ON NICE DAYS) before it is an adult so that it will give a larger size milk when it becomes an adult. Give the harvest sprites under your tool shed a mushroom a day, good things will come from it! Those are all the tips I have so far, if you other ones please E-Mail Me them! * Power Berries * Power berries can be found all around your Farm, each one will increase your stamina by 10% until youve eaten all 10. 1.
