Taiyo & Selene ("Best Ending" - Achievement - Radiance)

You will need two cheats to accomplish this! You must use both "solarflare" or "lunareclipse"; put them in on the name entry screen before starting your game. The basic idea is to perform everything from both storylines except the Werepuma battle. Only do the Werepuma battle once you have finished every other Adventure!

Here's the complete walkthrough.

  • Go to the Lab and "Practice Magic" until your Magic is 120. (With "solarflare", this should take 7 days.)
  • Go to the Docks and "Train With Taiyo" until your Strength is 120. (With "solarflare", this should take 7 days.)
  • Go to the either the Lab or Docks and work until you have at least 300G. (With "lunareclipse", this should take 4 days; you'll ultimately have 330G.)
  • Go to the Shop; buy the Rope, Light Crystal, Buckets and Collar.
  • Go to the Outskirts/Cave and do the Sacred Item Adventure. (Don't turn back!)
  • Go to the Docks and do the Festival Setup Adventure.
  • Go to the Lighthouse and do the Enter the Lighthouse Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts and do the Talk With Taiyo Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts/Cave and do the Sinful Sorceress Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts/Valley and do the Bandit Hunt With Taiyo Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts/Valley and do the Gather Sap With Selene Adventure. Choose to "Fight the Bear".
  • Go to the Docks and do the Meet Selene Adventure.
  • Go to the Docks and do the Fugitive Hunt Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts/Cave and do the The Search For Mokona Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts and do the Find Selene Adventure.
  • Go to the Outskirts/Cave and do the The Dragon's Silver Adventure. Choose to "Unblock Tunnel".
  • FINALLY do the Werepuma Battle (available on the main town screen).
  • You should have 1 day left. Train, work or just Skip to Festival.
  • Once the Festival begins, you should see the Taiyo & Selene ending!

Cheat Explanations

  • solarflare - Train faster. Each day of training increases the appropriate stat by 10. (Normally the increase is 5.)
  • lunareclipse - Earn money faster. Each day of work gives you an amount of G equal to your stat divided by 2, rounded up. (Normally the amount is your stat divided by 6, rounded up.)
  • ultramanseven - Ultra-cheat! Start with 120 Strength, 120 Magic and 500G.
  • corona - See Taiyo's sex scene again. (You'll get the "Bad Ending" afterwards. This might be considered a bug, but it's too small to bother with.)
  • cognitum - See Selene's sex scene again. (You'll get the "Bad Ending" afterwards. This might be considered a bug, but it's too small to bother with.)
  • trine - See the Taiyo & Selene sex scene again. (You'll get the "Bad Ending" afterwards. This might be considered a bug, but it's too small to bother with.)

Other Things to Do

Achievement - Made of Fail

Finish the game (run out of days) without satisfying the conditions for any other ending. The easiest way to get this is to complete the game once, then use "Skip to Festival" in a new game. (Assuming you didn't already get it by playing the game badly, of course...)

Achievement - Be a Beacon

Follow Taiyo's storyline. After you do the Lighthouse Adventure, go back to the Lighthouse.

Achievement - Oldest Profession

Earn 100G, then buy the "special service" from Oriana at the Shop.

Achievement - Back Door Lover

See Taiyo's sex scene and choose the "Anal" option. This only appears if you've seen the scene before. (not 100% on what conditions it needs to appear) The easy way to get this is with the "corona" cheat.

Achievement - Filthy Lucre

To get this ending and achievement, you have to do several things:

  • Go to Oriana's Shop and buy the Special Service three times.
  • Attempt to buy it one more time. Instead of the sex scene, Oriana will offer you a "business proposal". She wants 1000G.
  • Pay her 1000G and you'll get the ending and achievement.

The issue is, of course, how do you get 1300G? First, you'll need to use both the solarflare and lunareclipse cheats. If you look at the math, it's not hard to figure out how to maximize your gold. Fortunately for you, I've already done the work.

Getting the Maximum Amount of Gold

  • Use the solarflare and lunareclipse cheats.
  • Pick a stat, either Strength or Magic. Train it for 13 days.
  • Work (using the appropriate stat) until you have 1 day left.
  • You should end up with 1710G.

Of course, you could also use the "ultramanseven" cheat, but that would just be too easy...

Random Stuff

  • Training a stat ("Train with Taiyo" at the Docks or "Practice Magic" at the Lab) gives different messages depending on how high your stat is. If your stat is at least 120, you'll see the "highest" message. (This is a hint; there are no Adventures that require a stat higher than 120!)
  • The "clearachievements" cheat really does clear your achievements. (It was useful when programming the game, to test that players could get achievements correctly.)
  • After seeing the scene in the Lighthouse with Svetlana, go back to the Lighthouse one more time for an amusing(?) scene.
