Lost In Blue 3 
James' Story Walkthrough/FAQ
Version 1.1
By yunakitty (livserge331@comcast.net

Version 1.25 5/16/08 - Added recipes, hunting advice, relationship events, 
and corrected minor errors.
Version 1.1 - 5/5/08 - Some minor corrections, added tips for staying 365 
days on the island from blueheart100.

I will start out by saying that I try to avoid spoilers as much as possible, 
but in order to be clear enough to help people, I'm going to have to say 
certain things.  Just the title of contents might be a spoiler for you.  If 
you really don't want to be spoiled, the best thing to do is post your 
specific question on the GameFAQs LIB3 message board, and I or someone else 
will answer it for you.  

Since you must have beaten the game at least once to be playing as James, I 
won't be explaining the simplest things.  I figure that you know your way 
around the island, etc.  I'll still put a lot of the advice from the other 
guides, since cutting and pasting is easy. :P

Section I - Walkthrough

Chapter 1 - Stranded 

(Note:  All these chapter names are made up by me to beak the story into 
parts.  They don't actually use them in the game.)

You'll wake up in the northwest corner of the quarry.  You'll have some 
flashbacks, and then get control of yourself.  Walk down to your cave and 
enter. It's too cold in the cave.  Go outside and gather twigs and a piece of 
tree bark (there are four spots around the quarry with twigs.  James can 
climb two heights at once. This is a major time saver.  You may want to go 
get a drink now, or maybe not.  Make the fire starter, and head back to the 
cave.  At the beach, gather a little bit of food, some seaweed, coconuts or 
shellfish.  Go in and start the fire.  Go up to the counter to make dinner.  
Say "No" to "Make a lunchbox?" and just cook whatever you have in your bag.  
After dinner, you'll sleep.  There is no use in trying to explore the island 
today, since the route north is blocked by that huge stone that takes two 
people to push, and the route east is not open yet.

The next morning, you'll make a twig pile.  From then on, you can put any 
twigs you find (up to 30) in this pile.  If there are twigs in the pile, your 
partner (when you get one) will keep the fire going.  You can also ask a 
partner to go out for more firewood.  

If you're hungry, make some food and then head out.  There will be an 
earthquake, it's no big deal.  Now the way to the east is open.  Run up into 
the quarry, then over to the right into the jungle.  The earthquake caused a 
tree to fall, and you can now get into the jungle.  (Yeah, it fell and 
bolstered itself to the ground with rope and stakes...uh huh.)

Run up, picking up tree vines as you go.  Head for the upper left exit.  
James will smash the rock, but it won't let you go into the swamp yet.  
You'll return to the cave, but the day doesn't have to be over.  Run back 
into the jungle and head down this time.  You'll run into Eric.  Being the 
trusting guy that you are, you threaten to beat him up.  He runs off, but 
invites you by his cave at the seashore.  Keep heading that way, back to the 
first cave.  

You'll meet Claire there.  After some discussion, they will join you.  Take 
Eric with you and head back towards the quarry.  Pick up all the twigs in the 
first cave area, and all the leaves so that you can make the first bed at the 
quarry.  Put stuff in his inventory if you need to.

James and Eric can climb a height of three when together, so you'll probably 
want to do most of your exploring with him.  Try it out on some of the ledges 
in the first cave area.  There are two areas that only the James+Eric team 
can get to.  One is in the Field, to the southwest.  You can climb down and 
reach a little area.  The only reason to go there is to catch the Schnapper 
fish, but since you can't pole fish as James, there is no use.  The other 
place is in the northwest corner of the jungle.  You can climb up to an area 
with some taro and some fruit.

Now that you have partners, I should mention talking to your partner now.  
You can talk to your partner by pressing A near them in the cave.  You can 
give them things (either to hold in/take from their inventory, to eat 
immediately, or as a gift.)  Only lunchboxes and later necklaces make 
appropriate gifts.  Don't try to give a partner anything else as a gift.  
Giving a gift raises your relationship, which means they will do tasks for 
you faster and generally be more cheerful.

You can also ask how they are doing.  Just ask once a day to raise 
relationship.  If you ask three times or more in one day, it will annoy them 
and lower relationship.

You can ask them about a certain topic.  Sometimes, there won't be anything 
in there.  Generally, you will know there is something to talk to them about 
if while you were out, you found a new item or saw something unusual, and 
your character commented on it and said they should "return and ask."  It's 
also good to check it once in a while to see if there is anything to discuss.  
Don't check more than once a day, because if there is nothing, you have to 
say nothing, which will annoy them if you do it too much.

You can also ask your partner to go get something.  At first, you can only 
ask for food and firewood.  Later, when you have something to keep water 
inside of in the cave, you will be able to ask them to go get water.  Claire 
will find fruits and vegetables if you send her out for food, and she doesn't 
gather much firewood at a time.  So it's up to you whether you want to try to 
make her a food gatherer.  (I recommend against it.)

So, for the best relationship, ask them how they are once a day, and make 
them a lunchbox and give it as a gift. It can be anything, even just a cut up 
mushroom.  They don't actually eat it, so it's OK if it's poisonous.  It's 
under debate whether the quality of the meal makes them happier or not.  All 
I know is giving them anything makes them make the "happy sound."  Also, try 
not to annoy your partner by asking things too much, keep them as well fed 
and watered, don't stay out too late by yourself, and keep enough firewood so 
that they can keep the fire going.  If the fire goes out, relight it as soon 
as possible.  Being cold for too long will make them like you less.

Chapter Two:  Building a New Life

Return to the quarry and sleep to make Claire appear with you guys.

You'll want to start working on furniture.  The first thing you can build is 
some shelves.  You'll need one log and one rope.  If you're out of rope, just 
ask Claire or Eric to make more.  

You can build more shelves, up to three times.  If you can't, try filling the 
shelves you have up all the way, and your character should say something 
about expanding the shelves.  Talk to a partner to trigger it.

Once you've built some shelves, James should say something about other things 
to build.  Talk to a partner to trigger the bed and table and chairs.  Don't 
worry so much about the table and chairs right now.  The biggest thing is 
getting the shelves built up all the way and making better beds.  

So, what you're focusing on in the days to come is improving your cave to 
make life easier.  You will be exploring some, but focus on getting the cave 

You'll need logs, leaves and rope (and eventually fur) to build things you 
want.  Logs and the vines to make rope are found in the jungle, of course.  
They reappear every 3-4 days after you've picked them up.  Most things take 
this long to reappear. Leaves are around the trees at your first camp (so you 
can walk back there, but wait at least 4 days from when you came from there, 
so it won't be a wasted trip and they'll actually be there.)  There are also 
a few leaves in the area to the north of the quarry, which you haven't gone 
to just yet.  And yes, folks, since you are James, you can't do the old 
standby trick of asking James to go for food to get fur.  You're going to 
have to get it yourself!  Read the Hunting guide in section II to learn how.  
I recommend hunting the rabbit that appears just south of the two northern 
exits from the bamboo area for now.  You're going to need 12 leaves total 
(two bed stages at 6 each) and 9 furs total (6 for the last bed, and 3 for 
the last part of the chairs.)  I don't know the exact count on the logs and 
rope, but it's a lot.  

Store up these things and build as soon as you can.  Keep yourselves fed with 
James' meats and anything you find while scavenging for building materials.  
Twigs can be found around the trees in the quarry (there are four.) Keep an 
eye on the beach, because bottles and oil drums wash up randomly.  Bottles 
hold 1 L of water and oil drums hold 30.  If you find an oil drum, you'll 
automatically place it in the first cave you walk into, so if you happen to 
find one on the first beach, DON'T go into your first cave!  You'll put it in 
there!  Which is fine, later on when you find more oil drums, but the sooner 
you have a water source in the quarry cave, the better.  Make sure you talk 
to a partner about it once you place it in there, because then if you find a 
second one, you'll be able to talk to them about building a bath, which is a 
great way of boosting relationship.  When you do have an oil drum, you can 
fill it from any water bottles you have in your inventory, they will fill up 
automatically when you drink at a drinking spot.  You can also ask a partner 
to go get water.  This is not efficient in my opinion, as they only bring 
back 2 L most of the time, and they don't even drink water themselves while 
they're gone!  Geez!  But once there is a water supply in the cave, the other 
characters will drink when they get very thirsty, but not if you're in the 
cave, for some reason.  If they are whining about being thirsty, just step 
outside really quick and come back in, and they will have had some water.

You can explore the area to the north if you wish (and you will wish, in 
order to get fur from the rabbits.)  Take either Eric or Claire with you and 
push the rock together.  Jump across and head up to enter the bamboo grove 
area.  The actual bamboo is in the northeast part of the area.  There is a 
little path down in the southwest part, where you can find twigs, leaves, 
potatoes and burdock.  You can also find raspberries and carrots in the main 
part of this area.  In the actual bamboo grove, you can find green bamboo and 
dig up bamboo shoots.  

There are two exits to the north.  Don't bother with the one on the left for 
now.  There is nothing useful there yet, and you'll waste energy jumping all 
the way out there.  If you take the right route, you snake around and climb 
down a bunch of ledges to reach another beach!  You can find the usual stuff 
here, nothing special.  But it's there.

When you take the bamboo back, you can talk to a partner about it, then be 
able to make a pile out of it.  Baskets can be made out of bamboo, so you can 
now ask Claire to make baskets!  (Eric won't make them.)  You can also make 
fishing poles and bows. First off, make 1 bow out of a bamboo or stick and a 
tree vine.  Then combine that with a twig and a tree bark to make the 
improved fire starter!  It will rub itself, so you just have to blow.

Life is a little harder as James, because you can't rely on James anymore to 
bring home the bacon.  You can try hunting yourself, you can live off of the 
fish, veggies, and fruit your partners will bring, you can spear fish, or you 
can scrounge and live off of seaweed and shellfish.  It's your choice.  
Really, you'll probably get by just fine.

Chapter Three: The Swamp and Jungle River 

Once you've made your cave as comfortable as it's going to get, you're ready 
to move on.  Make sure you have a spear with you. Take Eric with you and head 
to the upper left part of the jungle.  You already busted in here before.

When in the swamp, switch to the mini map to see where you can walk.  When 
you are down in the bog, you can't run, so don't even try.  You're basically 
moving around the swamp, climbing up where you can and pushing down logs.  
You might want to quicksave at the very beginning of the swamp in case you 
waste too much energy and time being lost.  I really can't explain where you 
have to go; you just have to do it yourself.  Your eventual goal is the two 
exits to the right.  You will have to fight an alligator in the middle of the 
swamp.  The game will explain how to fight, and it's pretty straightforward.

Keep moving through the swamp, and head for the lower exit for right now.  
Move all the way to the right, and push down the log.  Take the right exit 
down and pick up the twigs and push down the log, but don't head that way.  
You were just making shortcuts in both of those instances.  Head back up and 
then take the left exit down out of the jungle river area.  You'll be back in 
the jungle, on the east side of it.  Push the big rock out of the way, then 
jump across, picking up logs and vines as you go.  Head home for today.

The next excursion you make will be back to the jungle river area.  You want 
to bring at least 4 logs and 5 ropes with you.  Also, before you go, pack up 
again.  If everything goes well, you will be moving soon.  Make sure everyone 
is fed and fully watered.  Fill Claire's inventory with twigs, bamboo, etc; 
but not all the way, since you're going to ask her to go out for food before 
you leave.  Give her at least 6 inventory spots to put food in.  Eric can 
carry any more twigs, vines, etc.  Make sure you have your fire starter, or 
make a second one so that you can leave one in this cave (you might come 
back.)  Take Eric with you.

You have a choice, you can go through the swamp the same way you did the 
first time, heading for the upper right exit this time, or you can head to 
the east part of the jungle and take that way up, then go left into the 
swamp, and then head for the upper right exit.  I prefer the second route.  
They take just as much time, but it's less time in the swamp. The swamp 
creeps me out!

When you get near the exit, you will have to fight an anaconda.  When it's 
over with, move out of there and you'll be back in the jungle river area.  
You'll see a deer, and you'll be able to talk about large animals back at 
home. This should unlock being able to trap large animals with a large trap 
(tree vine + stick.) Again, see section II when you're interested in hunting.  

Pick up the tree vines and the logs to the far right, then head for the 
little beach area.  You'll now be able to build a raft there.  Hit A to make 
it.  I believe that you need 6 logs and 4 ropes total.  I only told you to 
take 4 logs since you can find 2-3 here.  There are three steps to building 
the raft, so even if you don't have everything you need, you can get as far 
as you can and come back another day.  But why?  You can easily have 
everything you need.

When it's built, you can row the raft together.  Head to the upper rightmost 
"dock."  Get off and climb up.  I believe you have to fight the anaconda 
again.  Then go into the cave behind the waterfall.  You'll be in a bat cave.  
You'll have to play a rock throwing game, and it's pretty easy.  Take a drink 
and then head out the UPPER right exit.  Don't mess with the lower one, a lot 
of people make that mistake (myself included) and it is just a waste of time 
for right now.  

Now you're in a lake area.  Head to the right, picking up twigs.  Keep moving 
right and you will encounter the anaconda AGAIN.  Get that over with, then 
climb down to the right.  Enter, and you're now in the lab.

Chapter Four - The Secret Lab and the Fourth Character 

Head on in the next room.  Run down to the left (I know the map is 
overwhelming; I was like, "Where do I go?!?" the first time.)  You're headed 
for the door at the top, near the middle.  Go in and you've found your third 
base!  You can drop off some stuff and pick up the Scrap of Paper A on the 

You could make a fire and go to sleep, or you can head back out the main 
entrance.  Make sure you have 1 log and 1 rope.  You will witness a plane 
crash!  Climb up out of the little valley, and run to the left.  Get to where 
there are a couple of trees, then go up.  There is another fallen tree you 
can make a bridge out of.  Build it and cross.  Run up and to the left into 
the flower field, and you'll meet your fourth character!  She's not much use 
right now.  You'll return automatically to the lab.  Claire will magically 
appear there as well, how convenient.  Get the twigs and food and stuff out 
of his inventory, and put them away.  

The lab comes with fully built everything, which is nice.  You also have a 
sink that already has a little bit of water in it!  This is nice, because 
your closest water source (for right now) is the bat cave.  Yep, all the way 
back there.  Hope you found a few bottles while at the quarry!  Oh yeah, and 
go ahead and discard the fuse in the shelves.  It's of no use to Sam's story.

Make dinner if everyone seems hungry, if not, just light the fire and go to 
bed.  Have breakfast in the morning, ask Claire to get some food if you want, 
or just leave her home, and head out with Eric.  

I should explain the layout of the lab right now.  Look at the mini map.  
Your base is in the upper middle of the screen.  These might be slight 
spoilers, just by the names, but I have to explain what I call things and 
where they are for you to be able to follow me, and I'd like to use the same 
names the whole time.

Door on the upper left - Underground Lake (locked)
Door farthest to the left - Sub Room (locked and broken)
Door in the bottom left corner - Hatch to Bamboo area (locked)
Door on the left middle hall, by itself - Cage Room (unlocked)
Upper door on "upside down F" hallway - Mom's room (locked)
Lower door on "upside down F" hallway - Kumiko's Dad's Room (locked and 
Door on upper right - out of facility
Rightmost door - Photo Room (locked)
Bottom right door - Hatch to "Field" (locked)

You are heading for the right side of the facility, to the "Photo Room."  It 
is locked with a three digit code, but that is on your pendant.  Don't have 
it with you?  Go in the menu, then look in your album under "Other."  The 
description of the pendant will tell you the code.

Once in there, you will find out something shocking.  Well, you already knew 
it, I think.  You will also find Scrap of Paper B.  Leave the room, then head 
all the way down in that wing to a hatch.  The code on Scrap of Paper A will 
unlock it.  This is a shortcut to the Field.  Step out and pick up twigs 
around the area if you need to.

Relight the fire if necessary, and leave Eric there if you want.  Go to the 
bottom left corner of the map, and use the code on Scrap of Paper B to unlock 
that hatch.  It's a shortcut to the bamboo area.  Pick up stuff if you want, 
and then head back to base.  Talk to your partners, and there should be a 
choice about medicine.  Ask about it, and you'll find that an herb to cure 
Kumiko can be found past the gas zone.

Go to bed, or gather water and supplies and go to bed.  In the morning, fill 
up your bellies, send Claire out for food if desired, and take James with 
you.  You do have the option of taking Claire and sending James out for food, 
or sending James out for food, leaving Claire, and going yourself.  It's up 
to you.  Head back to the bat cave, drink some water, and then take the lower 
right exit.

Run across this lower part of the lake area.  You'll have to jump, climb, and 
push things.  Just keep moving right.  If you examine the sandy areas near 
the little rivers, you may open up the ability to build a raft there.  Ignore 
this for now.  If you brought Eric, there are a few places where you can 
climb up or down three heights, and save some time.

The next area is the gas zone.  Make sure you have the top screen on mini 
map, so you can tell where you can go.  Have the sound on if possible.  There 
is poison purple gas coming up out of some of the cracks, and it's random 
every visit.  So, you just have to feel your way through.  You might want to 
quicksave in case you mess up, because backtracking uses too much energy, and 
if you accidentally touch the poison gas, it slowly depletes 23% HP.  Yikes!

You will be able to hear the gas hissing, and it will get louder as you get 
closer.  Just be careful and go a different way if it's blocked.  You're 
heading for the upper right exit.  You'll have to fight the lousy anaconda 
AGAIN.  When that's over, run up and out.

You're now in the last beach area.  Up ahead of you are some green herbs.  
Tap to dig one up.  You only need one, but don't put it in your partner's 
inventory!  If he gets hungry enough he will eat it!  

You don't have to head back just yet.  Head up to the large tree, and examine 
it.  You'll be able to talk to a partner about that when you get back.  
Collect twigs, and then move to the right.   The upper right snaky path heads 
to a diving spot.  See Section II for advice on diving. You can die while 
diving, so quicksave before you start.  You might want to make a couple dives 
before heading back.  I usually don't let it get later than 6pm before 
heading back.  You can pick up some food and some copper wires if you're 
lucky.  (They'll be in demand very soon.)

On your way back, make a detour in the gas mines to the middle part of the 
top of the map.  The immediate way may be blocked, so you may have to go to 
the center and then go up.  They won't block both ways up at the same time.  
There is a hot springs here.  Take a dip together for 40% Stamina restoration 
and a boost to relationship (if you brought a partner.)

Keep heading back.   When you get back to the lab, you'll automatically 
revive Kumiko.  You now have your fourth character!

Chapter Five - Kumiko and the Secrets of the Lab 

Okay, the biggest, best thing right now is that you can open a drinking spot.  
Take Kumiko to the cage room.  There is a portable radio on the floor in here 
if you haven't been in here before.  I won't say anything else about it right 
now.  Go to the lower right part of the room.  You'll read a journal there.  
Write down the six digit number, then use it on the upper left door in the 
lab.  You can now go into the underground lake!  There is a drinking spot to 
the right.  You can spear fish for eel here as well. 

Now that Kumiko is awake, you will be able to fix doors that are kind of 
sparking electricity or something. You need copper wires, and then you can 
ask her to fix ones you've actually visited and seen sparking, or take her to 
the door and fix them yourself.  Fixing is not as hard as it seems at first.  
You have to release the stylus right on top of the orange arrow when putting 
in wire, then press the stylus in the fire until it's all the way hot, and 
tap the spot marked.

You'll need copper wire.  You can find it by diving at the last beach, and 
three wires can be found in the old ship.  This was the upper left path from 
the bamboo grove that I told you to ignore earlier.  You can get there 
quickly from the second hatch in the lab.  You can also find a map and a plug 
in the ship.  The copper wires will reappear every 4 days, so if you're not 
into diving, this will be how you will get wires.  You'll need 11 copper 
wires total and 2 plugs.  Just discard any fuses you find as these are only 
used in Kumiko's story.

On a side note: if you ask Kumiko to go for food, she will bring vegetables, 
mushrooms, and fish.

Go outside to her plane.  There is now a memo on the ground.  Pick it up.  It 
has the code to open her father's room.  You will need to fix it with copper 
wire first.  I can't remember if it needs 3 or 6.  I will find out, but 
you'll know for sure by whether it has two steps to fixing it or not.

Since you've already opened the underground lake and visited it, that should 
be the trigger for you to wonder more about the lab.  When you wake up the 
next morning, she should say something along the lines of she wants to learn 
more about the island, and maybe she should ask Kumiko.  Go talk to Kumiko 
and ask her about the island.  It will take 3 days for her to tell it all to 
you.  When she is done, hopefully you will have her father's room open.  Take 
her in there, to the left side of the room.  She will read her father's diary 
and cry.  Take her back to the base and ask her about it.  She will tell you 
what it said, and the message will have a 6 digit code in it.  You could use 
this to open the sub room (left most room on map.)  You'll also need to fix 
the crackling with copper wires.  This, however, is not necessary for James' 

Chapter Six - Escape!

As far as I know, you cannot meet Sam and make the medicine to escape in 
James' story.  Please see "Other Endings" below for ways for James to escape.

1. Other Endings for James

Radio Rescue:
You can find a portable radio in the cage room of the lab.  After you open 
the underground lake, the next morning Kumiko will come home with the broken 
radio.  She will say what frequency it's set to.  Write it down, or check it 
later in your album under "Other."  Take both (or at least the working one 
and knowledge of the right frequency) to the cliff near the flower field 
where Kumiko crashed.  At the top, you can go in you inventory and use the 
radio.  Quickly dial it the right frequency.  You can hear some neat things 
on other frequencies, but battery power is limited.  Though, if you do run it 
down, you can take the cherry blossom path down the river (left river, then 
choose R R R R L), and climb up to the right, to recharge at the satellite. 
Anyway, once you are at the right frequency, you will talk to someone.  It 
doesn't matter what answer you give them.  After a week has passed, return to 
the first cave and run down to the shore.  You will be rescued!

Calling for Help:
After you have woken Kumiko and unlocked her father's room, take the cherry 
blossom path down the river (left river, then R R R R L.)  Climb up to the 
right and you should be able to power up the equipment in Kumiko's father's 
room with it.  (Note:  This requires that you have conquered James' fear of 
heights, which I can't remember how to do exactly.  All I know is that it 
happened for me in my game without trying.  It has to do with climbing up in 
high places a lot, I think.)  Return to the lab and go into Kumiko's father's 
room.  Go up to the equipment and James will say a bunch of stuff.  About a 
week later, go to the first cave area and head down to the beach.  You will 
be rescued!

Raft Ending:
At some point after you've woken up Kumiko, if you've already visited the old 
ship and gotten the sea map, go to the last beach, on the seashore.  James 
will realize that he could build a raft there.  I'm not sure if you have to 
have the treehouse built first for this to trigger, but that makes it more 
convenient to build it anyway, since you're closer.  The raft will take many 
logs (more than 10), lots of rope, and 6 furs.  Once it's done, bring more 
than 20 lunchboxes, the sea map, and a partner (obviously, to hold some of 
the lunches) and leave between 8am and 5pm.  You will sail to safety!

365 days Ending:

It's rumored that you get a special ending if you live for 365 days on the 
island without escaping.  I've only gotten to 90, so I'm not sure about it. 
The Japanese guide says that you have to have built all furniture possible in 
all places for it to trigger. If anyone has done this feat, please let me 
know about it.

Here are some tips from blueheart100 (thank you!) for lasting that long on 
the island:
Here are some tips. Note this assumes you are playing as Eric, Claire or 
James. If you play as James it will be harder to get fur and such. He is the 
one who gets you the good food if you play the other three. 
Now for starters choose one of your bases that you might want to be stationed 
at. Let's say the quarry cave. If you are building furniture, only go to the 
jungle once every four days( that's the best estimate I've had.) With a 
partner gather ALL the logs and vines then head back. Then begin to build 
furniture only once per day.  
Get all your houses a good stockpile, each house should have the following 
30 twigs 
20 baskets 
20 bamboo 
1 barrel with 30 water 
50 vines 
1 bow 
2 sets of arrows with feathers 
1 iron rod 
1 fishing pole 
1 rock or bone 
50 rope 
The twigs might be difficult to have since if you stay at your house, your 
friends will burn the wood. It might be best to do this from the lab. 
Take your time through the story, if you rush through it, it will quickly get 
boring. This is where many make that mistake. 
Try to see the different endings. This one is fun since it motivates you to 
keep playing and get new stuff. Also, it can unlock hidden areas...
(Note from yunakitty: He means to get each ending, but pick up your game from 
where you left off and keep playing.  I have a little warning about this 
though - if you trigger any of the rescue endings, you will not be able to 
visit the first beach for the rest of your game, which means no necklace 
scene, which means no necklaces.  I made this mistake as James and could 
never make necklaces as him.) 
Try to complete all the recipes, fish, sea life, animals, etc. Some are very 
difficult to find; others you can only get with certain characters.
(Note from yunakitty: For example, you can only get a lot of the animals as 
James or Eric, since they can hunt; you can only get most of the fish as Eric 
or Kumiko, since they can pole fish; and you can only get most of the recipes 
as Claire or Kumiko, since they can use all cooking techniques.) 
Catch the goat or chicken. The goat is especially hard to get, plus it's 
needed to complete the recipes as is the chicken. It is not possible to have 
both at the same time. 
Switch houses every few days, this helps relieve boredom from seeing the same 
thing all the time. 
Every day when you have your other three partners, have one find food, one to 
gather twigs and the other keep the fire going and/or making stuff. You 
gather the water with four bottles or more. Also make dinner with a partner, 
it goes faster. 
Try diving every once in a while, I find this very fun to do. 
Use your free time for hunting, since this is harder to do then LiB 2, it 
will take longer and consume more time. 
Talk to the monkey, he gives boring stuff at first but it gets better as time 
goes on. (See Chimp guide in Claire's Walkthrough.) You must have Claire if 
you play as Eric or James. As Claire you can make friends with a dolphin, I 
don't know if you can in James's or Eric's story. 
That's all I have for now, feel free to add and ask anything if you need too. 
I'll try to answer any questions I can.

2. Making Necklaces 

You cannot make necklaces as James.

3. Hunting

You have to be Eric/Sam or James to hunt. 
It seems so frustrating to hunt, because by the time you see an animal, it 
runs away. But, when you see an animal fleeing, hit Y as quickly as possible. 
The hunt screen will come up and the animal that was fleeing will be minding 
its own business, just wandering about close to you. It seems that aiming a 
little lower than you think you'll need to is best. The main advantage to 
killing birds this way as opposed to the small trap is that you get a feather 
as well, which makes much better arrows. (The best arrow is iron rod and 
feather. Next best is sharpened bone, bamboo, and feather.) Also, killing 
rabbits will net you a fur as well. Also, if you miss, when you get back to 
the regular screen, touch yourself to make yourself look at the ground (like 
you do to see snakes and crabs.) When you come back up, it usually will have 
"reloaded" the area, so that you can find a different animal, or your same 
animal might appear again nearby. It's all very random and can be 
frustrating. I've found the best thing to do is first thing in the morning, 
ask the other guy to go get food. Then, you can go out hunting. Even if you 
don't catch anything, you know there will be something to eat when you get 

Large traps can be reused.  Sometimes if you are really lucky, after you kill 
an animal that was trapped in the large trap, there will be another animal 
trapped immediately afterwards!  Double the rewards!

Areas to hunt:

First Cave Area:

Animals:  Owl, Lynx (both at night only)

Tips:  There is a good trick to finding owls. Have your bow equipped and hit 
Y anywhere (I was up on the ledge to the right that has all those twigs and 
leaves, not sure if it matters.) You see the hunt screen, which has two trees 
off in the distance to the left. Burn this image in your mind. Hit B to 
cancel out. Keep hitting Y and canceling out until the hunt screen has just 
one tree on the left, and it's closer. You will also hear some hooting if you 
have the sound on! The hooting is delayed, so that's why it's quickest to 
just look for the hunt screen to be changed, not to listen for hooting. Hit A 
to aim, then aim up into the branches of that tree on the left. There's a 
little owl resting in it! He is tricky to hit. Aim lower than you think you 
need to, so that your arrow head is just below him. You should bag an owl!
I have never seen a lynx here myself, but supposedly they can be found here.
Field (second area, where Claire was afraid to jump across)
Animals - Chicken, Pigeon, Rabbit, Goat, Wolf (at night), Raccoon (at night)
Tips - This is my favorite place to hunt, since it's easiest to get to from 
the lab (1st hatch) and animals seem most plentiful here. I set a large trap 
first thing in the morning, between two of the grassy areas down south. Then, 
I run in and out of the hatch, to reload the area. Always have your bow 
equipped of course. I typically encounter the animals in the same areas. The 
rabbit appears right below the hatch. About 1 in every 10 times when you run 
out of the hatch, a rabbit starts running too. The chicken appears to the 
east, near the raspberries. The pigeon appears to the west, near the 
mushrooms. And the goat and wolf appear between the grassy areas down south. 
This is why I set a trap here, because you will catch goat every so often. If 
you have a lot of vines to spare (ie if you aren't needing rope right then) 
you can make lots of traps, using the sticks that you find in this same 
screen, and put several traps down. This will increase your odds of catching 
one. You don't even need to run down to check the traps each time. You will 
know right away when you come out of the hatch if you have caught something, 
because there will be a terrible sound of the animal crying. You have to get 
close and hit Y, and shoot the poor trapped thing to death. (It's awful! 
Repeat after me..."It's just a game") This is the only way (as far as I know) 
to kill a goat, because even if you sneak up on one grazing, one arrow will 
not kill it, it will run away, and there is no way to track down the same 
goat and finish it with another arrow (again, AFAIK.) Rabbits, raccoons, and 
birds take just one arrow to kill.  

Animals - Duck (upper left island with chives on it), Rabbit (lower right 
island that exits to lower part of jungle river area)

These only appear to me if I have the bow equipped and I'm alone.  The duck 
likes to appear very close to where you have to climb up onto the island, and 
he starts flapping like crazy when you get close to climb up.  He will start 
to fly away, but just hit Y as soon as you're up on dry land.  He will be in 
your hunt screen.

Northwest Corner of Jungle River area
Animals - Deer
You get here by exiting the north part of the swamp, or row your raft over 
here. Put down large traps on the rightmost area (where logs appear.) Run in 
and out of the screen until you hear that awful sound of the animal crying. 
Voila, you have dinner. This has only worked once for me, but I haven't tried 
it all that much.
Southeast Corner of Jungle Area - thanks to wearywaterwolf for this:

Animals - Boar

Set a large trap at the very southeast corner, where you sometimes find logs.  
Leave the area via the closest exit, and run in and out until you hear the 
boar crying loudly.  To double your efficiency, set a trap here, and one in 
the middle of the leftmost grass patch in the field, and run between the two 
area until you hear an animal in one of them.  I caught two goats and two 
boars in one day this way! 
Bamboo Grove
Animals - Wolf (at night, to the right of the tree with twigs), Raccoon (at 
night, in the actual grove), Pigeon (southwest of bamboo area), Rabbit (area 
right below two northern exits)
After the field, I would rate this as the second best place to go hunting. 
Upper Part of Lake
Animals - Duck, Pigeon
So far, I've only seen ducks appear on the little island in the middle of the 
lake, and pigeons appear in the southeast area of the upper screen (come out 
of the lab and run down.) It's a pain to hunt ducks because jumping over all 
those stones uses a lot of energy. They can be found more easily in the 
Lower Part of Lake - thanks to ninjawarior for this:

Animals - Lynx 

You can find it in that area between the two lakes' rivers at night. It sort 
of looks like a cat and sounds like one when you kill it. It leaves lynx meat 
and fur. Kill it with a bow and arrow.  Your arrows must be 9+ sharpness to 
kill it in one shot.

Flower Field - thanks to Laura15077 for this:

Animals - Pigeon

These appear randomly in the flower field where Kumiko crashed her plane.  
Laura15077 from the message boards says that she killed 12 in one day with 
the bow and arrow, not with small traps.  I've never seen one, but I don't go 
there often.

Poison Gas Zone  - thanks to wearywaterwolf for this:

Animals - Hawk

Go to the poison field, get your bow ready. Now just walk around hitting Y.  
If you hear a bird cawing, then there is a hawk in the screen.  Draw your bow 
and look up.  He flies pretty quickly, so aim and shoot as fast as you can.  
Bring lots of arrows, because you have to hit them while they're flying. 
Once you've encountered and killed a hawk, you will sometimes hear them 
cawing in the gas area when you aren't in the hunt screen.  If you have your 
bow equipped and hit Y when you hear one, there will be one in your hunt 
screen.  That makes it a lot easier!

Underground Lake - thanks to wearywaterwolf for this:

Animals - Monitor Lizard (directly below elevator, inside the cave)

These will appear randomly.  They can only be killed with iron arrows.  
Leaves meat and lard.

4.  Diving

You must visit the last beach, beyond the gas zone, before you will be able 
to dive.  Go all the way to the upper right of the map, kind of down a snaky 
path.  When you get to the end, a scene will trigger and you will be able to 
dive.  You must be a boy or be with a boy to dive.

There is an in-game explanation of how to dive.  Basically, you hold L and R 
at the same time until your hands touch, then release.  Repeat until you 
reach the bottom.  I like to hold my hands together for just a moment, and 
then release; you seem to dive further with each stroke this way.

Occasionally you will hear a blip noise and fish will swim by; this means the 
shark is near!  You have to press and hold A until he passes.  If you're 
trying to save time, you don't really have to hold A until the fish appear, 
not right when you hear the blip.  You can also release A when just the 
shark's head is out of the screen.  These have always worked for me, but you 
might want to quicksave before diving just to be safe.  If the shark does see 
you, it will automatically turn you so you are swimming up.  Just swim like 
normal until you reach the surface.  The shark is fast, but you should be 
able to outrun him.

Watch your breath meter.  If it runs out, you will be returned to the 
surface, lose any items that you had, and lose 25% of your health.  So don't 
let it run out!

When you reach the bottom, you will see some light colored sand piles and 
maybe some black spots.  The black spots are sea urchins, and the sand piles 
are various things.  Tap one with your stylus and you will zoom in.  If there 
is an item there, tap it to take it.  If the screen is blank, it means there 
is something buried.  In my experience, it is always clams or shortnecks, so 
it's really not worth the time to dig.  I can dig those up on the beach if I 
want them, and not with a time limit!  I just back out and choose another 
pile if I get a blank screen.  I may be wrong; please let me know if you've 
found anything else digging at the bottom of a dive spot.

Once you're done digging, hit Y or the top left corner to head towards the 
surface.  Repeat the swimming until you break the surface.  

There are three places that you can dive.  The last beach (depth of 8m), the 
quarry (depth of 5m) and the underground lake (depth of 10m.)

At the last beach, you can find (in addition to assorted shellfish, two of 
which, the sea urchin and abalone, I haven't gotten any other way) copper 
wires to fix doors in the lab, and after you've triggered making necklaces; 
you will sometimes find blue stones. 
At the quarry dive spot (to the left, climb up) you can find the flat stone, 
used for stir-frying. You can also find blue stones (but no copper wires.) 
In the underground lake, you can find green stones (again, after you can make 
necklaces, they won't show up before that) the IC card (if you're Claire, 
he'll dive automatically for it; but if you're Eric, you have to find it 
yourself.) You can also find bones and stones, which are very disappointing, 
especially considering it's the deepest dive! No shellfish will be found in 
the underground lake.

5. The Treehouse

You can build another place to live at the last beach, past the gas zone.  It 
will take a while to build, since it calls for more than 20 logs, more than 
20 ropes, and 10 leaves.  If you are serious about building it, I recommend 
moving back into the quarry for a while in order to build up rope and logs.  
You can get to the jungle from the hatch that goes to the Field from the Lab, 
but it's just easier from the quarry.  When you've got all you can hold, load 
up a guy, move back into the lab for a night (or rough it and take the bamboo 
area hatch to the lab, then go to the last beach from there - more 
exhausting, because remember, you're not going to finish this house in one 
trip, so you'll have to make it back home the same day!

When you do get it built, you're not done yet!  The treehouse starts out with 
no furniture built.  So that means in order to be comfortable and efficient, 
you are going to need lots more logs, ropes, 12 leave, 9 furs and at least 
one more oil drum.  (You can use a second for a bath -see Oil Drum Bath.)

I don't really like living in the treehouse, because you can't collect spices 
anywhere in that area, and you're cut off from everything else by the gas 
zone.  But in James's game (and maybe in all of them) you can build a sturdy 
raft on that beach which takes a long time, so it's more convenient to live 
there and build it.  Anyway, I think you build it just for bragging rights, 
really, and for something to do if you're trying to reach a year on the 

6. Building Relationships

This is a very important aspect of the game that most people overlook.  How 
much the other characters like you greatly affects how quickly they will get 
things done for you, and how much stuff they will bring back if you ask them 
to get stuff.  There are a few ways to build relationships.

An important thing to note now is the "happy sound" and the "sad sound."  You 
will hear these after talking to a character, giving them a present, and at 
other times.
Sad sound - 
-Ask character to do too much
-Ask them how they're doing or ask to talk to them about something then 
cancel three times or more
-Let the fire be out too long in the cave
-Give a bad response in conversation.
Happy Sound - 
-Ask them how they're doing (just once a day - and note, this will stop 
making a happy sound after a while, it's not bad, it just means that you are 
good enough friends that it's not affecting your relationship level anymore)
-Give them a lunchbox as a gift ("I have a gift for you", not "Please hold 
onto something for me" or "Eat this.") It can just be a cut up mushroom and 
they will make the happy sound, but it's under debate whether a better lunch 
makes them "more happy." Note- they don't actually eat the lunchbox, so if 
you're tight for food, you're probably better off eating your good stuff as a 
shared meal and saving "trash" like mushrooms for gift lunches. Only one 
lunch a day will make them happy, so any more than that is wasted.
-"Can I ask you something?" Choosing this when you actually have something to 
ask them about, and then asking them will make a happy sound.  So, if you are 
already holding hands with one person, you might want to save these questions 
for another partner in order to get a free boost to your relationship with 
the second person.
-Give them a necklace present (this will come much later in the game.  You 
can give both a lunch and a necklace in the same day and get the happy sound 
for both.  Don't know how much more happy necklaces that you really polished 
make them versus crummy quick ones.
- Give them a bath.  When you get a second oil drum and take it back to base, 
you should be able to ask a partner about building a bath, and then be able 
to do it.  (1 log, 1 rope.)  Take a partner out to the drum after 7pm to give 
them a bath.  You basically just have to blow softly but steadily on the mic 
until they say they're done.  Watch out for it to get too hot or cold, and 
blow harder or softer depending on what they want.  Note that this can only 
be done at the quarry and the treehouse.
- Going into the hot springs together.

Once you get to a certain level with characters of the opposite sex, you will 
start holding hands.  And yes, you can hold hands with two people (not at the 
same time, but you can be at that level with both of the opposite sex 
characters at the same time.)

So, it's up to you whether you concentrate your love on one person, or spread 
it around.  It's easy to make a quick lunch and ask each partner how they are 
doing every day, but I like to save my questions for James, because the more 
he likes you, the more meat and fur he brings, which is awesome!

7. Cooking, Recipes, and Food

You start out with just cut and grill.  You're a boy in this playthrough, so 
that's all you'll get.  There are ways to unlock other cooking methods, even 
as the boy, but you won't be able to use them, so why bother.  Oh yeah, your 
girl partners will start making you soup, but big deal.

There is an in game explanation for each of the cooking methods, so I won't 
bother.  Remember that you can hit select while you're cooking to get the 
explanation again.

You'll need spices to cook.  All spices except rock salt can be found by 
hitting A when standing in any green area, and even the swamp.  Rock salt can 
be found most places where it is sandy.  

Here are all the recipes you can make as a guy.  They are all confirmed 
except for the ones with an * after them, which means they were translated 
from the Japanese guide. Thanks to many people on the LIB3 message boards, 
especially littleturtlegir, who confirmed most of these.

1. Egg Salad (Cut) - Egg, Carrot, Rock Salt, Pepper 
2. Radish Salad (Cut) - Radish, Rock Salt, Blue Seed 
3. Burdock Root Salad (Cut) - Burdock, Purple Bean, Chili Pepper 
4. Seaweed Salad (Cut) - Seaweed, Purple Bean, Blue Seed 
5. Mushroom Salad (Cut) - Mushroom, Vegetable, Rock Salt, Pepper Seed 
6. Mackerel Sashimi (Cut) - Mackerel, Chives, Purple Bean 
7. Sea Bass Sashimi (Cut) Sea Bass, Chives, Blue Seed, Purple Bean 
8. Sashimi Platter (Cut) - Various Fish, Chives, Purple Bean 
9. Fruit Platter (Cut) - Papaya, Passion Fruits, Other Fruits, Tree Sap Drop 
10. Big Eared Apple (Cut) - Apple, Tree Sap Drop 
11. Baked Potato (Grill) - Potato, Rock Salt, Pepper Seed 
12. Grilled Eel (Grill) - Eel, Purple Bean, Tree Sap Drop 
13. Grilled Sweetfish (Grill) - Sweetfish, Rock Salt 
14. Grilled Clam (Grill) - Clam, Purple Bean 
15. Grilled Poultry (Grill) - Poultry (any bird meat), Rock Salt, Pepper Seed 
16. Grilled Salmon (Grill) - Salmon, Rock Salt, Pepper Seed 
17. Grilled Sea Bream (Grill) - Sea Bream, Rock Salt 
18. Grilled Masu Salmon (Grill) - Masu Salmon, Rock Salt 
19. Butter Grilled Trout (Grill) - Rainbow Trout, Onion, Rock Salt, Brown 
20. Grilled Sea Bass* (Grill) - Sea Bass, Rock Salt 
21. Masu Salmon Skewer (Grill) - Masu Salmon, Carrot, Pepper Seed, Rock Salt 
22. Sauteed Wolf (Grill) - Wolf Meat, Milk, Carrot, Brown Seed 
23. Grilled Apple (Grill) - Apple, Tree Sap Drop 
24. Apple Pie (Grill) - Apple, Milk, Tree Sap Drop 
"Can you go get some food?" - Food brought by partners 

I thought this might be helpful for people that are trying to make the 
recipes as Claire, because you have to rely on the kindness of your partners 
to get most of the ingredients. You've probably noticed that partners bring 
you different things at different base camps. If you need a certain 
ingredient, this might help in knowing who to ask or where you need to be 
living. Note - if you are in one camp and ask a partner to get food, and then 
move into another camp the same day, when you wake up, the partner will give 
you a delivery of food based on the new camp, not where you were when you 
asked them to move. This can be convenient when you want ingredients from two 
different places- ie- ask James to get food in the morning at the treehouse, 
then pick an onion, a carrot, and a potato, and move back to the lab. He's 
more likely to bring boar meat at the lab, and you'll already have the other 
ingredients for Pot-au-feu.  
Also, how much your partners like you will definitely influence the amount of 
food you get. So butter them up and they'll bring a lot more home, and you'll 
have more to choose from at dinner time. (See the Building Relationships 
section.) This is not an exhaustive list; rather, just what I have observed.  
Your partners might surprise you and bring other things!

Kumiko and Eric, being the fishers, bring fish, shellfish, and veggies.  
Claire brings fruits and veggies. (There's no entries for her below, because 
I'm playing as her while making this guide!)  Kumiko will also start bringing 
lard to the treehouse, which is weird, but whatever!

First Cave 
Eric - Mushrooms, clams 
Claire- Mushroom, Seaweed, clams
Kumiko - Mushroom, clams, white carp 
Eric - Seaweed, Potato, Sardine, Blue Mushroom, Black Mushroom, Brown 
Mushroom, White Mushroom 

Claire - Pineapple, Coconut, Seaweed 

Kumiko - Sardine, Carrot 
Eric - Char, Rainbow Trout, White Carp, Blue Mushroom, Purple Mushroom, 
Claire- Radish, Carrot 
Kumiko - Char, Rainbow trout, Radish, Carrot 
Eric - Seaweed, Moray Eel, Sardine, Scallop, Tomato, Potato, Lard, Brown 
Mushroom, White Mushroom 

Claire- Onion, chives, mushrooms, tomato
Kumiko - Potato, Radish, onion, chives, mushrooms, seaweed, tomato, lard, 
moray eel, sillaginoid, Scallop

8. Raising Animals

You can raise either a goat or chicken in this game, and you can be either 
male or female to do this.    Note - you can't have both animals at the same 

Catching a Chicken - You have to have talked to a partner to trigger being 
able to catch and raise the chicken.  This happens either after you've eaten 
chicken that was brought home by James, or after you've caught and eaten 
chicken yourself.  A small trap is a basket and a twig combined.  Place it on 
most green areas.  You can check it immediately, and keep checking it over 
and over again until what you want is caught in it.  If it's not what you 
want, just let it escape.  If it is, tap it with your stylus and drag it into 
your bag.  It can be hard sometimes, because the little critters want to get 
away!  If you've talked to a partner about raising the chicken, you will get 
the option "Raise the chicken?"  Say yes and you will capture it alive.  Note 
that it's not in your inventory, and you don't have to go home right away 
either.  When you do get home, it will be there, and you can also talk to a 
partner about catching it for an easy friendship boost.

You need to water the chicken daily.  The morning is the best time.  You need 
a water bottle to do this.  Walk up to the front of the chicken and press A 
to water it.  If it is healthy, it will lay an egg every morning.  If you 
move, the chicken will move with you and appear in front of your new house.  

Catching a Goat - This one is somewhat harder.  I'm not sure of the exact way 
to trigger your partners to talk about the goat. It should help to have seen 
a goat in person (again, run in and out of the Field screen, but you'll have 
to actually run over to the area where the goat appears and back again 
instead of just popping in and out.) Also, having eaten goat meat at some 
point is important. James will bring it back for you if you ask him to go for 
food at most bases. Also, you have to be far enough in the game to have seen 
the deer in the Jungle river area.

I got the goat by setting a large trap in the leftmost grassy patch in the 
Field (area to the west of your first cave.) Right in the middle of the grass 
is the best spot. Then, leave and reenter the screen over and over (the lab 
hatch is the best spot to go from.)  You don't actually have to run over to 
the trap, because if you catch one, you will hear the goat hollering for its 
life right when you enter the screen. You may not catch one on the first day 
of trying.  Large traps disappear the next day, so you'll have to set a new 
one, but don't get discouraged.  Try again.  If it's taking a ridiculous 
amount of time, however, maybe you haven't triggered catching a goat yet, and 
you might want to try some of the tips in the last paragraph. When you do 
catch one, run up to it and choose to raise it. 
The goat will appear in front of your base, even the lab!  Water it daily 
from the front (with a full water bottle) then milk it from the side (with an 
empty water bottle.)  You need to join with a girl to water and milk it.  The 
game will explain the milking mini game.  I never even mess with trying to 
pet it or anything.  I just milk as fast as I can before it gets too mad.  
You might want to quicksave before attempting it the first time, just to get 
the hang of it.

9.  Fishing

Spear Fishing
You trigger this after you get your first stick.  You will then be able to 
make a spear.  Spears can be made out of bamboo, stick, or iron rod (iron rod 
is best.)  You can also combine a sharpened bone or stone to the bamboo or 
stick to make a better version of those.  ALL CHARACTERS can spear fish, yes, 
even Claire, believe it or not.

You can't spear fish while holding hands, and you can't hold hands while you 
have a spear equipped.  To see if you can spear fish somewhere, just equip 
the spear and get close to the water.  If Y appears in the top left corner, 
you're in luck.  The game will explain how it works.  Your spear will 
occasionally break, so keep that in mind.  Here are the fish that I've 
River at Cave 1 
White Carp

Quarry Beach  
Watering hole at Quarry 
Masu Salmon  
Beach 3 (north of bamboo grove)

Underground Lake

Last Beach 

Fishing with a Rod

Only Kumiko and Eric can do this.  So you're out of luck this time around.
10.  Relationship Events

These are little events between characters that can change who they are 
paired up with in the ending.  

In all cases, the first event can only happen if you are at the friendship 
level where asking "what's new?" no longer makes them make the "happy sound" 
(that little chime.)

The second event can only happen if they like you a little bit more, but they 
don't have to be holding hands yet.

The third event will only happen if the two of you are holding hands (or in 
the case of two same sex characters, where they are very cheerful when you 
talk to them - like when you say "I have something for you" and they get very 
happy before you even give them anything.)

Also, it's OK to be closer friends than what is required.  That is, if you 
are already holding hands, you can still get the first scene.

You must trigger each event before you can see the next one.  You can't skip 
over any.

If you make the correct choices, these events will increase your relationship 
level.  Making a bad choice could make it decrease.

James + Eric

EVENT ONE:  Go with Eric between the two rivers below the lake.  You'll 
encounter a brown bear.  Choose to fight it.
EVENT TWO:  Usually happens immediately after event two, but if Eric doesn't 
like you quite enough yet, it may happen later on.  They'll have a 
conversation.  Choose to hit him for the best result.
EVENT THREE:  Take Eric to where you fought the bear before, and you'll 
encounter it again.  Eric will collapse, and after you carry him back to the 
lab, you pledge to be close friends.

James + Claire

EVENT ONE:  Go with Claire into the swamp, and you will encounter and fight 
the alligator.  (I'm not sure if this has to happen the first time your meet 
the alligator, or if it can happen later.  I'm having trouble triggering this 
EVENT TWO:  Once you have an oil drum bath installed, take Claire in front of 
EVENT THREE:  Go with Claire to the bamboo grove, and you'll encounter the 
white tiger.
James + Kumiko
EVENT ONE:  Move to the lab, if you're not already there. On a clear day (no 
weather conditions, no fog, not even clouds) leave the base (the room you 
sleep in) and reenter between 9pm and 1am. Kumiko has to be in there or with 
you, not on an errand. Everything happens automatically, and then answer the 
first response to the question. (The J-guide says that this won't happen if 
you've already seen Claire and James's first event.) 
EVENT TWO:  Take Kumiko with you outside, and go under the left side of the 
lake (but still in the upper area, not down below where you can go rafting.) 
You'll get an event, and James' last scene! (BTW, "Are you OK?" is the good 
EVENT THREE:  Go in the lab base between 9pm and 1am on a clear night. 
Something will automatically happen. 

Section C

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  Claire/Eric/Kumiko hates me!  They won't do anything I ask!

A:  Read my section about "Building Relationships."  The more they like you, 
the easier it is to get them to do what you want.  Also, the problem might be 
the smoker.  I don't like the smoker.  It can kind of mess up your partners 
for a little while.  Sometimes when you ask them to smoke meat, they just get 
hung up on it, never finish it, and the meat spoils, so they really can't 
finish it.  If you try to ask them to do anything else, they either get sad 
or just outright refuse to do it.  Remove the spoiled meat and discard it, 
and even move to another camp if necessary to make them snap out of it.

Q: How can I build a smoker?

A:  Read my last question to see how I feel about the smoker.  That said, if 
you want to complete your album, you have to make the smoker.  To trigger it, 
you have to let food spoil in your bag several times.  I'm pretty sure it has 
to be meat or fish.  Finally you'll say something about preserving food, and 
you'll be able to ask a partner.  Hold hands with a guy or just ask him to 
make it for you.  It takes one log and one rope.

Once the smoker's built, I don't recommend you use it heavily for the reasons 
outlined above.  To make each kind of jerky for your album, just put one 
piece of fish or meat in there at a time, and ask just one partner to work on 
it,  Don't ask them to do anything else, not even cook dinner, until they are 
finished.  It may still hang them up, but it's less likely to.  

Q: How do I wake up the girl?

A:  You have to get mugwort.  You can't just go get it though.  You have to 
explore the lab a little first.  Open the Photo room (right most door on map) 
with the code on Sam's pendant and explore it to find "Sam's" true identity.  
Open the first and second hatches (see next question for directions,) and 
maybe even go in the cage room. Eventually, a topic should come up about 
medicine that you can ask the guys about.  Now, you will be able to go get 
the mugwort.

Go back to the bat cave, and take the bottom right exit.  Move all the way 
across the area, until you get to the gas zone.

Make sure you have the top screen on mini map, so you can tell where you can 
go.  Have the sound on if possible.  There is poison purple gas coming up out 
of some of the cracks, and it's random every visit.  So, you just have to 
feel your way through.  You might want to quicksave in case you mess up, 
because backtracking uses too much energy, and if you accidentally touch the 
poison gas, it slowly depletes 23% HP.  Yikes!

You will be able to hear the gas hissing, and it will get louder as you get 
closer.  Just be careful and go a different way if it's blocked.  You're 
heading for the upper right exit.  You'll have to fight the lousy anaconda 
AGAIN.  When that's over, run up and out.

You're now in the last beach area.  Up ahead of you are some green herbs.  
Dig one up and go back home to wake up the girl!

Q: How do I Open the Lab Doors?

A: The codes change from game to game, so you have to find them out in your 
own game.  Here are the locations:

Door on the upper left - Underground Lake - code found in cage room after 
Kumiko is awake, lower right part of room has a journal
Door farthest to the left - Sub Room - fix with 3 copper wires, code is in 
Kumiko's father's diary (she will tell you the code.)
Door in the bottom left corner - Hatch to Bamboo area - Scrap of Paper B 
found in photo room
Upper door on "upside down F" hallway - Mom's room - Eric's pendant code, 
Sam's spoken code, Sam's pendant code
Lower door on "upside down F" hallway - Kumiko's Dad's Room - fix in two 
stages of copper wire (6 total), then use code from Memo found by plane
Rightmost door - Photo Room - Eric's pendant code
Bottom right door - Hatch to "Field" - Scrap of Paper A found in base
Elevator in Underground Lake - fix into two parts, 5 copper wires and 2 plugs

Q: How do I make the medicine?

A: You cannot do this in James's story, as far as I know.
