Probably a thread somewhere....I know there was one last year, but don't see one this year. Maybe missing it. Anywho...
I just tried the Arc System event tonight. I was expecting it to be like last year's event, and well, it wasn't. There is a game where, everyone was running around, and cheering. While I was running around, I found one sparkle underneath the stairs of the game center. Tried to pick it up and nothing happened. What exactly are you supposed to do here?
Also, are all the JP events going on like this one, or are they all different? If there is a guide thread anywhere too, that would be great for redirectory.
I believe this is the thread you're looking for.
Try reading the last 10 pages or so and that should help you get up to speed. The event you mentioned just now is the New Year's event, which I believe will continue for a few days more, cuz JP Home is just awesome like that.
When you find a sparkle, it will say something like "Right" or "Miss" in Japanese. Since I can't read Japanese I just listen for the "happy music" lol that tells you you've found the right one. Then you do a Cheer emote. After you've found one, it can be viewed in a personal space since it's an active item. There's only one correct sparkle per event.
If the JPN HOME New Year Event still going on, then most likely all you have to do is attend it and wait until the event caption complete and start running to find the glowy orb on the ground.
Once you find the orb just do a cheer emote and make sure you receive a 3 Kanji (Chinese words) in red on the screen with sparkly around the word to indicate you've won. If you receive a blue Hiragana (Japanese text) with sweat around it is when the 5 minutes counter timer reach to zero when event complete. Some glowy orb can be fake so you have to run around in the 8 indicated location to find them.
Location where the glowy orb appears:
1 - Behind the Shinto bell shrine building
2 - In front of the circular pond on the ground where the HOME symbol
3 - Behind the advert poster in front of the Theater entrance
4 - By the wall between the Mall and Theater
5 - By the lone tree in the circular enclose sitting area
6 - Behind/beneath the large stair leading up the Bowling Alley building
7 - By Music Cafe patio next to the stand alone lamp
8 - Hidden behind the large stream screen by the Music Cafe upper back entrance up the stair
Once again these are the locale where all the orbs is located and am sure it would be useless for me to post them now since the New Year might be over already?
