Problems When Playing Harvest Moon: Light of Hope and How to Fix them
Happy new year 2018 to you all! A few days ago, I decided to take a break for a moment from writing on this blog and trying to develop my other blog. So I am rarely active in here.
Now I am back, and this time I will discuss some problems in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope which is people often asked to me through Facebook.
This post also became my fourth post at the beginning of the year 2018 on this blog. Okay, back to the topic...
Basically, some of these problems occur because there are bugs or glitches in the game. So we need some special tricks to fix them.
However, some issues below may have been already fixed by the developer in the latest version of Harvest Moon: Light of Hope.
How to Fix Some Problems When Playing Harvest Moon: Light of Hope
1. Oliver didn't show up even though you already have the requested item
In a conversation with one of the sprites, you are required to bring a Yellow Perch, Yellow Dahlia, and Great Wool to the Goddess Spring to make Oliver (the purple sprite) showed up.
But because there is a bug in the game, even though you bring the items that I mentioned above, there is nothing happen.
After I search, it turns out we don't need a Yellow Dahlia, but we have to bring a Pink Dahlia. Then you will trigger an event about meeting Oliver.
For additional information, you can't use a better quality product for a request for the main story and marriage, but you can use it if you want to complete a request from the villagers.
For example to this problem, you can't also use an Ultimate Wool to substitute a Great Wool.
2. Stuck in the lighthouse after meeting Oliver
This problem is often asked of me. Basically, after Oliver appears, you are only required to go to the lighthouse to complete the main quest.
However, when this problem occurs, you will be stuck in the lighthouse. Nova who is supposed to start a conversation, simply move to the right a little bit and then silent.
So, how do we fix it?
I met this problem at the end of the summer or maybe early fall of year 1. I forgot. I didn't go immediately to the lighthouse. However, I spent 2 days to do another thing.
After that, I tried to come back to the lighthouse and the event was originally stuck, working back normally.
This way not been definitely could work for you too, so please do activities as usual but use different time period. Because I think, this bug is happening because we finish the main storyline too fast.
3. Can't buy items from Sam/Carol/Bastian or can't refine ore at Gus's Smithy
This happens because your bag can't hold more items anymore.
How to deal with it, you just need to sell or at least put the items you don't need on the storage and refrigerator in your house.
4. You cannot hold any more item types in your bag
You will receive this notification all the time if your bag is full. You can only carry 99 different types of items and there can't be more than 99 identical items in your bag.
But no need to worry, the items you get will be automatically moved to the storage in your house.
Just like problem number 3, you need to sell or put some items in storage if you don't want to receive this notification again.
Note: You can't upgrade your bag/rucksack.
5. Poitou Donkey won't grow up
When I calculate the Poitou Donkey's growing time, it takes 30 days to grow up and eventually produce the fur. If more than that, then it is certain that you are experiencing this problem.
The solution that I can give, tries to sell the Poitou Donkey that won't grow up, and buy a new one at Sofia's Livestock.
6. No sound in the game
A lot of things that cause this. It could be your download file is not perfect or when extracting the game files, there are certain files that are errors, etc.
If you have no sound or audio problems, here are some tips that you can do according to Ceecee [Natsume] on Steam:
- Make sure to exit from Steam completely (don't just close it into the background), then restart your computer/laptop.
- Make sure to set the sound device that you want to use for the game, set to the primary sound device.
- Run the game as administrator.
7. Unable to complete the request from a villager
This occurs if you have not read the request sent by villagers every day to the mailbox in front of your house.
So, to solve this problem is very easy, you just need to read the message that was sent to remove the red exclamation (!). It indicates that the request from villagers can begin to complete.
8. Why is it so hard to get basic quality products like wool, cotton candy wool, silky fur, great wool, great cotton candy wool, great silky fur, etc?
If you don't want to get the higher qualities, stop feeding your animals with great animal feed or delicious animal feed, just give the normal one.
Upgrade your animal barn to raise more animals is also a good suggestion for you. But if you still don't get what you want, you can use the Save and Load Trick to change the qualities of your animal product.
