In order to obtain the Catalog Maniac Gold badge, the catalog in Timmy's and Tommy's store must be 80% full. At least, this is stated in all the guides that I have consulted. Using the excellent ACNL iPad app it is easy to see what the maximum and your actual numbers are for each catalog category. I've added up fossils, clothing, fortune cookies, furniture, gyroids, songs, stationery and art, as these are also present in the catalog in the T&T store. I didn't count fish, insects and seafood but that shouldn't make a difference because I've caught them (almost) all. According to this calculation, I'm already over 82%, but still no badge. So what is wrong here? Is it the 80%, or does the 80% only apply to the furniture in the catalog, or do you have to have 80% of each category filled? Or something else entirely? Am interested in your opinion. Oh, and it's not raining, which might keep Phineas away (not sure about that).

I have the same problem, I haven't been able to figure it out. The only thing I haven't really bought is the Gracie furniture, I wonder if that is a problem. It's frustrating

I got my gold badge a few game weeks ago, which came as a pleasant surprise.

My friend and I pooled our resources since he speed-plays and in the early days we were in opposite seasons. I collected Bug-Off prizes and tent items, he collected Fishing Tourney and igloo items. He managed to speed-play over a year's worth and did every event.

Purchased a few extra things through HHA (got me all 12 monthly downloads, a kagamimochi, etc.). I got almost all of the island items and did the Club Tortimer thing whenever I could early on, only been to about 20 islands in the past couple of months (only missing 3 CT exclusives...).

I attribute the majority of my catalogue to him speed-playing.

I wonder if villager pics are included? Because you can see the pics in the kiosk. Between us we have about 30 different villager pics, not including special ones.

I have the silver badge and have very few stationary, gyroids, fortune cookie items, & songs. That means a certain percentage per category can't be a requirement. I can't be sure if they count towards the total percentage or not.

Never thought about the pictures. If they are included in the count that would explain it, then I'm only at 74%. Only problem is that I can't find them in my catalog, so I can't understand how they could contribute to it.

Riesz, you mention that you can see the pics in the kiosk. Could you be a bit more specific? I can't find them anywhere in mine.

Vanellope, thanks for ruling out that you need a minimum percentage for each category. At least one thing is clear now.

Lily, i have two of the four Gracie series and most of her clothes.

I also only have 6 or 7 pictures. I don't think they would count anyway since they aren't cataloged anywhere as far as I know.

Nothing that doesn't appear in the catalogue counts, however neither does DLC ... If you've got all the possible DLC items released so far, that would be about 2% ... There are 2862 catalogue items pre-programmed into the game, so you need to catalogue about 2290 [not including DLC] to get the gold badge ...

Thanks for this Nicks.

When I add up the different categories in the ACNL app, the total number is 2970. To allow for the DLC I would have to subtract 108 to make 2862. The number of items I have catalogued is 2458. I have only a few DLC items but even if I had them all, I would still have 2350 "real" items, which computes to 82%.

                               Max       Mine
Fossils                         67        67
Clothing                   1052      916
Fortune cookies            45        45
Furniture                  1468    1158
Gyroids                      131        90
Songs                          91        90
Stationery                   65         60
Art                              33         32
Total                        2970     2458
Minus DLC                2862     2350

I simply don't get it. Maybe I've made Phineas angry?

Hmm, well these are the numbers of items pre-programmed into the game:

Furniture 1214
Wallpaper 123
Carpeting 117
Tops 448
Bottoms 121
Dresses 97
Headgear 203
Accessories 58
Footwear 97
Umbrellas 36
Stationery 59
Music 91
Gyroids 131
Fossils 67

Art doesn't count, since it doesn't appear in the catalogue. I think the app lists DLC that hasn't been released yet, and also "regular" items that were given as DLC but aren't really [like the sushi platter, shogi piece etc.] ... Also, discount things like the patched clothing from Hallowe'en that doesn't appear in the catalogue either ...

Hehe, whoops, I've confused the kiosk with the HHS catalogue.

Sorry for the confusion. I guess I didn't have to pick up those pics my friend leaves around his town.

Hi Nicks, I see you have also found Liquefy's list of all items on gamefaqs. The numbers found there are a good match with those shown in the App.

In the App, furniture, wallpaper and flooring are added up to give 1486. To this, 27, for the fortune cookies that are furniture, has to be added, and 58 for DLC has to be subtracted, resulting in 1455, which is almost identical to Liquefy's 1214+123+117=1454.

For clothing the App states 1052, which is the sum of all clothing and accessories including umbrellas and footwear. Adding 18 for fortune cookie clothing and subtracting 9 for DLC gives 1061, again very close to Liquefy's number of 1060.

The App states a maximum of 65 stationery but that includes melody paper, which isn't in the catalogue, and five stationery that you can't buy but do receive from the museum, Redd, etc. I've read that you can receive those from villagers added to mail or find it in the police station, but that never happened to me so that's unconfirmed. Anyway, those five or six items don't really make a difference.

The number of fossils, gyroids and music in the App and according to Liquefy are identical.

I have only 12 DLC items. Making the corrections for DLC and taking art out of the equation, I'm still over 82% of the catalogue!

Annette, how long has it been since you earned the badge?

I have had experience with Phineas not showing up for awhile, even in the absence of other special characters. My main character had earned her gold weeding badge. I was positive of the numbers because I always did my weeding in my cycling town when Leif was out to count them for me. The first week, someone or something was always going on so Phineas never showed.

I had all but given up on him at the end of the second week, when he finally showed up with two badges for me. It was almost as if he was not planning to give me that gold weeding badge until I had earned another.

My son is still playing the game only for the goal of earning badges. He is otherwise not interested in the game anymore. He keeps careful notes of his numbers and has also experienced long overdue wait times for badges.

Don't give up. He will show up eventually.

I was for sure I would get my 80% badge next time the badge man showed up, but no luck I just got the weeding badge. I will be getting 2 more Gracie sets soon though...so *fingers crossed* I will get the badge then.

Then I'm stumped Annette !! Unless you've been having particularly terrible weather every day, I can't think of anything else !! My spreadsheet calculates my percentages for me, I'm at 77% ... I'll wait and see what happens when I hit 80% ...

The weather in AC Dalen was fine, it only rained once, which is very different from real life, it's pouring here. It's comforting to know that others are waiting for badges as well, thanks Vanellope and Kiran. I won't give up of course but I'm trying to understand the mechanics of this game. It is still a possibility that the 80% mentioned everywhere is incorrect, you wonder where these people writing the guides get their info from. Like in the press it happens that people publish things without checking the facts... but if I have to guess I'd say that Phineas is held up somewhere for some reason as Vanellope, her son and Kiran already experienced. I'll let you know when I finally get the badge.

Very interesting what happens when you hit the 80% mark, Nicks!

Kiran, according to your calculations, are you also over 80% ?

Phineas was in my town today... but alas, not for Tuneless. I'd made a fourth inhabitant because all my cupboards and the museum were overflowing and he met Phineas to get the HHA badge. So, Phineas isn't shunning my town altogether. Still no gold catalogue badge

I got my gold catalogue badge today! I'm over 87% of my catalogue, even if I discount DLC and whatnot. I think that the 80% is plain wrong. Would be interested to hear if someone actually got their badge at 80%.

Congratulations on the badge!! I have no idea what percentage I am at, or even how to determine such a thing easily. Do you actually count each item? I don't see myself doing that.

I use the ACNL iPad app for that. Very good app, contains pictures of all the items and also counts how many you have. It's only a little bit vague whether some items are DLC or not, they don't count in determining the percentage. You'll have to discount for them outside the app. Still, even without this discount you get a fair idea of your percentage.
