How To Defeat The Bull And Get The Ball Of Poo (Conker’s Bad Fur Day 100% Walkthrough)

How To Defeat The Bull And Get The Ball Of Poo:  

Ball Of Poo Conkers Bad Fur DayDefeating the bull and unlocking the ball of poo is key to unlocking several worlds in Conker’s Bad Fur Day so this is easily one of the most important tasks you’ll run into in this game. It’s also not a super intuitive mission either like many Conker’s Bad Fur Day missions.

Entering The Pooey World:  

Panther King Scene Conkers Bad Fur DayUp near the entrance to the Barn Boys world is an alternative path to a pooey mess of a place. When you enter this area you’ll notice a shack directly in front of you. Enter into that shack and you’ll be greeted by a cutscene featuring the Panther King and Professor Von Kripplespac. During the scene they’ll come to the conclusion that the only solution to The Panther King’s table issue is to place a red squirrel where the now missing table leg once was… not a great solution in my opinion, but we’ll have to trust the professor on this one I guess. After that cutscene is over you’ll move into another cutscene with a dung beetle who offers you a way to get some poo.

Traversing The Poo Sewer:

Poo Sewers Conkers Bad Fur DayAfter the cutscenes end, go to the trap door in the right corner of the dung beetles hut and press the B button to turn into the anchor and break open the doors. You’ll fall into the sewers below where you’ll have to traverse the ropes to the open door in the top left corner of the room. When you reach the door, go through it and you’ll be greeted by the one and only bull.

Turning On The Prune Juice:

Prune Juice Faucet Conkers Bad Fur DayAfter exiting the sewers you will run into a cutscene with the bull. It turns out he hates anything that is red and wellllll… Conker is a red squirrel sooooo… Anyway, take an immediate left and head up the rooftops, make sure to avoid the rolling balls of poo coming down them, to get to the giant faucet. Once on top of the faucet spin the faucet by running in a circle clockwise on it. Eventually you’ll open the faucet and be greeted with another cutscene, showing you that the prune juice is now flowing to the trough below and that a target is now protruding from the wall.

The Battle With The Bull:

Cow Pooping Conkers Bad Fur DayNow you’ve gotta know what to do with that huge protruding target right??? No?? Really?? Well I suppose you’re in the right place then. If you haven’t already, jump down off the roof of the building and back into the grassy area with the bull. Use Conker to lure the bull into that giant target. When the bull successfully hits the target you’ll view yet another scene, this time a sassy female cow will be released from its pin and go to graze on some grass. A large target will also pop up from the ground. You will now need to lure the bull into that large target, doing so will get the bull stuck allowing for Conker to hop on his back and take him for a ride. When you’ve gotten on the back of the bull use the B button to charge into the cow grazing on grass. Hitting the cow will trigger yet another scene where the cow will run up to the trough full of prune juice and begin drinking it. After slammin down some prune her butt hole will be burnin and she’ll run over to the grate in the center of the field and start throwin down some poo into the sewers below. After that cutscene ends, use the bull to run into the cow one more time. This time the bull will kill the cow, sending her flying into a ton of pieces across the yard. You will need to repeat this process two more times. Lure the bull to hit the giant protruding target (releasing the next cow), lure the bull to hit the bigger wall target so you can jump on its back, use the bull to ram into the cow (you will have to hit the second cow twice before she runs for the prune juice and the third cow three times), wait for the cow to drink the prune juice and run to the grate and finally run into the cow one more time with the bull to kill it. After the third cow is dead, the bull will accidentally break open that sewer grate the cows were dumpin thick streams into and fall into the sewers below and drown.

Gettin Some Well Earned Cash And That Elusive Ball Of Poo:

Conkers Bad Fur Day Bull CashJump into the sewer where the bull just fell down into. The sewers will now be full of the poo the cows produced and you’ll be able to wade through it. Jump through the hole in the wall and head over to the context sensitive B Button in the nook in the wall in the adjacent room. When you press B on the button, Conker will read a manual that will give him confidence, which in turn allows him to swim. After gaining your new swimming ability, press B to submerge yourself in the watery poo and make your way back to the entrance you originally came from when traversing the ropes. Once you make it near the entrance you will be able to emerge from the poo to grab a the wad of cash you probably noticed hollering at you at the very start of this mission. Grab that bad boy and then re-submerge into the poo. Proceed forward through it and then swim up to get back into the Dung Beetles cabin. Exit the cabin and the beetle will greet you with a giant ball of poo.

How To Get Ann’s Mashed Potatoes Recipe (Harvest Moon 64 Perfect Walkthrough)

How to get Ann’s Mashed Potatoes Recipe:  Ann   Potato

This is a pretty simple recipe to get, but let’s go over the requirements:

  1. You’ll need a fully grown potato plant (Takes 6 days to grown and is grown during Spring unless you have a green house)
  2. This must be the first gift/item you give to Ann during that day.
  3. You must have spoken to Ann at least once since starting your game.

Once you have a potato head on over to Ann and hand it over to her to get her Mashed Potatoes Recipe. You can find Ann in the Green Ranch fields from 8am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and sometimes Sundays (she can also be by the goddess pond on Sundays). On Thursdays she is either by the fisherman’s tent, carpenters house, on the vineyard or at Rick’s Tool Shop. During rainy days you’ll find her inside Green Ranch’s Barn aside from on Rainy Thursdays when she is unavailable.

If you want a more detailed breakdown on Ann’s schedule or more detail about Ann in general then make sure to check out my Harvest Moon 64 Player’s Guide that I wrote here: Harvest Moon 64 Player’s Guide

How The Hidden Happiness Mechanic Works In Harvest Moon 64

How The Hidden Happiness Mechanic Works In Harvest Moon 64:

For over a decade post release, this mechanic was not known to exist, but it happens to be one of the most important mechanics in the game. Jack’s (your player’s default name) happiness is partially responsible for whether or not you get the Party Picture at the end of the game. You must have a happiness value of 250 or higher by the end Summer 1st Year 3 to potentially qualify for the picture. At the beginning of the game you start with zero happiness and your happiness maxes out at 255.

How It Works:

There are a multitude of things that can affect the happiness meter. Below are the most common things that effect it.

  1. Using the restroom increases happiness once a day by 2 points.
  2. Scaring the birds in front of your house or by your pond increases your happiness by 1 point per day.
  3. Catching a fish increases your happiness by 1 point per fish caught.
  4. Dropping anything edible will result in a decrease in 1 happiness point.
  5. Scenes with villagers and your decisions made in those scenes result in happiness gains or decreases.
  6. Animal deaths result in massive happiness decreases.
  7. Winning some festivals increases happiness.

How To Restore The Vineyard (Harvest Moon 64 Perfect Walkthrough)

How To Restore The Vineyard:    Grape Spirit   Kiefu Fairy

Restoring the vineyard in Harvest Moon 64 is easily the most complicated/difficult thing to do in the game. The requirements to do it are very vague and the characters involved in the actual restoration are ones that may not seem exceedingly important during a first run through the game. So it’s a good thing you’re reading this post! Below you’ll find the requirements for the Vineyard’s revival.

Step 1 – Befriending Duke (The Bartender) To Get The Heavenly Wine:   Duke The Bartender

Duke is the bartender in Harvest Moon 64. You can find him every night (aside from Sundays) from 6pm-12am behind the bar. You will need to get an affection of 40 with Duke to acquire some Heavenly Wine that your grandfather left for you. This wine was originally created by Karen’s grandmother and is your first step in the long path to restoring the vineyard. This must be completed within the first year or the event where Duke gives you the wine will never trigger!!!!

Step2 – Befriending The Harvest Sprites:  Harvest Sprite

After receiving the wine from Duke you’ll need to befriend the Harvest Sprites. You will need to have an affection of 50 or higher with Sprites. When you do, they will notice that you have the heavenly wine and suggest you go speak to the Harvest Goddess about the wine (you must speak to them twice on the same day they mention the heavenly wine to trigger the Harvest Goddess suggestion).

Step 3 – Speaking With The Harvest Goddess   Harvest Goddess

NOTE: Doing this step will end your day. Make sure to get all necessary tasks done for the day prior to doing it.

Once the Harvest Sprites have suggested you speak with the Harvest Goddess you will need to get an offering (an offering can be an egg or any crop you’ve grown on your farm) and head over to the Harvest Goddess pond on Moon Mountain to speak with her. Throw your offering into the Harvest Goddess pond and out will come the Goddess like normal. However, this time the only thing you can wish for is “Grape Spirit”.  Wishing for the “Grape Spirit” will take you into a cut scene at the Vineyard where you and the Goddess will speak to the tree in the back right corner of the vineyard and ask it to awaken from its sleep.

Step 4 – Befriending Karen (Optional)   Karen

NOTE: You cannot be married or you can’t trigger this steps event (either way the vineyard will be restored though)

This is an optional step, but one you REALLY REALLY DO NOT WANT TO MISS OUT ON!!! This step is necessary to get Karen’s Picture (Dance Of The Kiefu Fairies). You will need to get Karen’s affection to 200 or higher prior to Fall 7th. If you can do that, she will come see you on your farm the evening of Fall 7th between the hours of 6pm-12am and ask you to come with her to see the Vineyard because it has been restored. Make sure to choose the response, “What?” and not the repsonse “I’m busy”. If you choose I’m busy you will not go to the vineyard with her and you will lose your ability to ever receive her photo. The following day you will receive Karen’s photo in the mail.

Step 5 – The Goddess’s Visit

On Fall 6th the Goddess will come to you in a dream and tell you that the Kiefu Fairies have returned to the Vineyard and that delicious grapes will be able to be harvested once again from the Vineyard!! Yea!!! You did it!!!

Step 6 – The Sweet Wine   Wine

On the morning of Winter 7th, either Karen or Kai (whoever has the highest affection) will come by your farm to give the new and improved sweet wine harvested from the vineyard. This scene will give your player a +10 happiness boost if Karen shows up and +3 happiness boost if Kai shows up.

Things That Unlock Post Vineyard Restoration:   Gourmet Judge        Tarou and Hanako (Red Head Couple)

After you restore the Vineyard two things unlock. The Gourmet Judge becomes a villager and can now be found occasionally at the cross roads and a scene with Tarou and Hanako the red head lovers will no be viewable next Fall. And that’s it!

How To Get Rick’s Handmade Butter Recipe (Harvest Moon 64 Perfect Walkthrough)

How to get Rick’s Handmade Butter Recipe:      Small Milk

This is a pretty simple recipe to get, but let’s go over the requirements:

  1. You’ll need a full grown/milk producing cow
  2. You’ll need to have purchased the milker from Rick’s Tool Shop
  3. This must be the first gift/item you give to Rick during that day.
  4. You must have spoken to Rick at least once since starting your game.

Once you have those two things you’ll just need to milk your cow and hand off that milk to Rick (it can be a small, medium or large milk).  You can find Rick in his shop in Flowerbud Village from 10am-6pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, unless it’s a rainy day, in which case his shop is closed and he’s unavailable.

If you want a more detailed breakdown on Rick’s schedule or more detail about Rick in general then make sure to check out my Harvest Moon 64 Player’s Guide that I wrote here: Harvest Moon 64 Player’s Guide

How To Get Cliff’s Spice Tea Recipe (Harvest Moon 64 Perfect Walkthrough)

Cliff’s Spice Tea Recipe Requirements:    Cliff  Egg  Small Milk

To get the Spice Tea recipe from Cliff you’ll need to do the following:

  1. Have a milk or an egg. I would suggest an egg as it’s less money lost to acquire the recipe.
  2. It will need to be winter! Cliff will only give you this recipe in winter.
  3. Cliff needs to of course still be a villager in your town!! Make sure to get the recipe before he (potentially) leaves!
  4. This must be the first item you give to Cliff on that day.
  5. You must have spoken to Cliff at least once since you have started the game

After spring 18th, when Cliff arrives for the first time in Flowerbud village, you should be able to find him on moon mountain between the hours of 9am-5pm most days. He’s typically around the carpenters house or fisherman’s tent.

If you want a more detailed breakdown on Cliff’s schedule or more detail about Cliff in general then make sure to check out my Harvest Moon 64 Player’s Guide that I wrote here: Harvest Moon 64 Player’s Guide

How The Hidden Villager Affection Mechanic Works In Harvest Moon 64

Understanding Villager Affection:

In Harvest Moon 64 there is an extremely important underlying affection system for your villagers, pet and farm animals (aside from chickens), however for the most part it is hidden. The only real indication of the villager affection system at work is the different color hearts you see with each bachelorette. The higher her affection the different color the heart.

The exact same thing happens with every other villager, your dog, your horse and your cows and/or sheep. The more you interact with them the higher their affection rating toward you. The max affection for everything in the game is 255 and the starting affection is always 0.

Increasing Villager Affection ::

To increase a villager’s affection toward you, you can do the following:

  1. Give them gifts. Any edible item or flower gifted to a villager will increase their affection toward you (there are few exceptions to this rule. My player’s guide goes extremely in depth on this subject for each villager).
  2. Talk to them. Each time you talk to them their affection will increase. The very first time you talk to them you will get a bonus affection boost.
  3. Interact with them in scene’s. In certain scene’s you will have the ability to gain affection with a villager.

Increasing Your Dog’s Affection:

  1. Feed him every day! If you don’t feed him you will lose 1 affection point each day until his affection reaches 0.
  2. Pick him up every day. This increases his affection by one point.
  3. Whistle to him every day to gain another one point affection increase.

Increasing Your Horse’s Affection:

  1. Brush it. Each day you brush your horse you gain 2 affection
  2. Talk to it (Young) or ride it (Grown) and you will gain another affection point
  3. Whistling to it once per day increases its affection one point.

Increasing Your Barn Animal’s Affection:

Due to massively broken mechanics this is actually extremely complicated. Just know that brushing, talking to your barn animals and milking or shearing them all push their affection totals up. If you want more in depth info, check out the guide I wrote.

Getting 100% On Harvest Moon 64’s Hidden Farm Completion Menu

Getting 100% On Harvest Moon 64’s Hidden Farm Completion Menu

Today we’re going to uncover the requirements to get 100% completion on Harvest Moon 64’s hidden farm completion menu. We’ll first go over how to unlock the menu and then go over the requirements to get see that sweet perfect 100%!

Unlocking The Hidden Menu:

Japanese Farm Completion Menu
Japanese Farm Completion Menu
English Farm Completion Menu
English Farm Completion Menu

In the Japanese version of Harvest Moon 64 this menu always existed, no codes needed. However in the US release the menu was scrapped from the game! What????!!!!! Luckily  KhalaHM on GameFAQs forum discovered it existed and created gameshark codes to unlock the hidden (and fully translated) menu. If you’re using an emulator however, you can use my ROM hack that enables the menu to be accessible from the get go. No game shark codes needed! Special thanks to Zoinkity from Assembler games for helpin me create the ROM hack!

Gameshark Cheat:

To use the gameshark cheat you will first need to enter the following code:

D1170404 0020
801D62BD 0002

Invisible Menu Item
Invisible Menu Item

Then you will have to start the game,  go to the file selection menu, hover your cursor over the “Delete” button and press the L Button. Press down on the control stick and you should now see your cursor hovering over a hidden menu item. Click the A button and the farm completion menu will present itself! Yea!!

The ROM Hack:

If you are emulating and you’d prefer to just use my ROM hack, you can download it here: ROM Hack DL

You now will no longer need the gameshark cheat you will just need to move your cursor to the invisible menu item below the “Move” menu item on the file selection page.

How To Get 100% On The Farm Completion Menu:

To get 100% on the farm completion menu you need to do the following:

  1. All Bachelor and Bachelorette affections must be at their maximum (255 is max)
  2. Child’s Affection at 255
  3. Horse and Dog’s Affection at 255
  4. Have 8 barn animals with their affection at 255
  5. Own 6 chickens
  6. Ship 99,999 Crops
  7. Ship 9,999 Eggs
  8. Ship 9,999 Milk Bottles
  9. Ship 999 Fish
  10. Have 999,999G (Gold/Money)
  11. Collected all 10 Red Power Nuts (The blue power nut does not count)
  12. Collect all 16 photos
  13. Collect all 35 recipes
  14. Have all 6 home extensions
  15. Have all 480 squares of outdoor farmland be grass
  16. Have player happiness at 255
  17. DO NOT USE GAMESHARK CHEATS (Byte flips for special events will not occur correctly, in turn making your percentage completion inaccurate)

That’s it! It took me ~100 hours to reach 100% completion, but I love Harvest Moon 64 so I had a blast doin it.

If you don’t know what I mean by affection and happiness in the requirements above, here are a couple videos I made to explain what they are:

Farm Completion Glitches:

It should be noted that there are several significant glitches for the farm completion menu. They are the following:

  1. 100% completion is actually 99% completion. Due to a float truncation error that occurs when the game tries to add everything up, the farm completion menu displays a completion percentage of 99% rather than 100%, but rest assured 99% definitely equates to 100% completion.
  2. The farm completion menu occasionally stops calculating… I don’t know why for sure. This occurred for me only when I was utilizing gameshark codes to test out completion percentages. So yet another reason not to use gameshark codes to achieve this feat.
  3. The farm completion menu will stop calculating if you have two farms with identical names. So don’t copy you file to other available slots or name another files farm the same as your current file. You’ll be sad and there’s no fixing it after you’ve done it.

The End:

That’s it for this post! Be sure to check back in the future for more!
