You will get a Windows-only version when pledging to the Patreon. There is no Mac release for the Patreon. So even though it works for you right now, there is no Mac version being released on Patreon.

This is about the Patreon version, which has the added perk of owning all the items from the store, and thus the stores are empty. You already own them :)

Varitus was a candidate to be the 7th route, but it was Eeyok who won the poll, so I'm sorry, he lost!

Transferring save files between platforms won't work; only within the same platform. So transferring your Steam save file to the Itch version is going to give you this error. You will have to start a new game.

You seem to be playing  a save file from Steam and running it on the Itch version. Please start a new save file on the Itch version.

The only way you'd get stuck there is if you're playing the Mac version - are you? Tailor Tales was made for Windows, and doesn't officially support Mac. The Mac version blocks Tailor Tales from editing files, so it cannot create and save a new character image during the customization.

Downloadable content. It means extra content to the main game, in this case, you will receive the characters' Plus content. Plus content is all the 18+ sexual content not released in the free version, and an additional side story. DLC for Tailor Tales is paid.

Gray's DLC will be released at the same time as Aiden's DLC becomes available on Steam.

Yep I see the confusion here. You first joined Patreon in March 2022, when 19 chapters of Gray were released.

You then pledged again in July 2023, but never ended up updating the game, or didn't enter in the password of that month to unlock the new content. Hence why you never got the updated content!

I will send you an email with further instructions.

If you were a Patreon a while ago, then it must have been at the time where Gray's chapters 1 through 18 were out. That's the content you paid for, regardless whether Gray is now completely finished. The Patreon model is that you get the content you pledged for, and if you want more content, you'll have to pledge again. Hence why it probably said there's no more content, because this is where you stopped.

If you want to play Gray's route fully, you can play the free version on Itch or Steam, or pledge to the Patreon once more to get Gray's full route and his Plus content, as well as Aiden's full route.

However, if you say Gray's route was finished at the time, you can hand over your e-mail so I can check which month and year you were pledged so I can make sure and sort things out.

If the patterns are wonky, you can go into your Tailor Tales Folder, and browse to: Tailor Tales/www

In that folder should be a file called package-NoWebGL.json and a file called package.json. Rename the file package.json to something else, like package-old.json. And rename package-NoWebGL.json to package.json so that the game uses this file instead. Then reload the game.

Hopefully this should make patterns appear for you.

Very peculiar issue! No, there is no brightness settings in the game. If your game appears dark, it's likely a setting on your monitor.

The customization part rarely works on Mac versions, hence why I don't officially support it. The game is trying to save and overwrite an image when you customize your character, but Mac doesn't allow third party apps to make such changes to your files, so it's being blocked.

If you mean you placed it in the recycling/trash, then you can still get it out. If you mean you started a new save file, overwriting your old one, then it's a bit trickier.

If you played the new save file and choose a character and started reading a chapter, your old save file is gone forever.

However, if you didn't start a new route and never read any chapters and didn't customize any clothes, bought any items etc. then your back-up save file might still be intact.

Only switch to your back-up under my instructions.
1. Open the location of your Tailor Tales folder  and browse to this location: Tailor Tales > www > save
2. There is a file in there called file1.rpgsave and that is your main file. Rename it to something else, such as "file1_old.rpgsave".
3. There's another file in there called file3.rpgsave and this is your back-up file. Rename the back-up file to file1.rpgsave to set it as your main file.
4. Open up the game and load your manual save file; you should now be running from your back-up file. that's only if you don't see your old save file/progress

If you installed the game through the Itch app, then the new update will allow you to continue playing with your old save file.

If you have a standalone version on your PC instead, then you must manually update it. Download the latest Tailor Tales version, and then find the location of your old Tailor Tales. Place the newly downloaded Tailor Tales in your old location and overwrite all files. That should have updated your save file.

You will need to head to the Roles channel to click on an emoji to give yourself the Member role, or Member-Minor role to have access to speaking.

Okay, I'll need to give you a file that you can replace in the game, is it possible for you to get on Tailor Tales' Discord and say something in the tech-support channel? Then I can give you that file and see if it works.

They are clasps, and can be found in the story under the category jackets, it's the final 'button' icon.

So reading these errors, it's shader related, and it seems like you've run out of memory to play Tailor Tales. That update really changed some things around.

I think I may have a workaround, but let me know if reinstalling it worked or not.

(1 edit)

In that case, something definitely happened to one of the files in the game (not your save file, hopefully!), so follow the instructions I said above to keep your save file intact as you reinstall the game.

Before you reinstall, I'd like to get your Last Error.txt file. It's located in: Tailor Tales/www. There should be a text file in there called Last Error. If you could open it up and copy its contents in your post, that'd be great!

You can preserve your save data by going to your old Tailor Tales folder, and copying these folders: Tailor Tales/www/save and Tailor Tales/www/data/img/pictures/Fashion/Completed. Copy these current folders and place them somewhere else as you install the latest version. Once reinstalled, replace the new folders with the ones you copied. That should keep your save file intact as you get the latest game version.

Does this happen as soon as you open the game, or only when trying to load a save file?

I think this is a system error and you may need to reinstall Tailor Tales completely. You can preserve your save data by copying these folders: Tailor Tales/www/save and Tailor Tales/www/data/img/pictures/Fashion/Completed. Copy these current folders and place them somewhere else as you reinstall the game. Once reinstalled, replace the new folders with the ones you copied. That should keep your save file intact as you reinstall the game.

Congratulations on the release! I've been following this game since the initial demo and was always excited to see updates :)

Hmm, seems like an outdated file! I'll be uploading a fix for that. In the meantime, you can still finish the important client despite deviating away from the guide.

Tailor Tales is receiving updates every month, but those updates are a Patreon exclusive. Once a route has been completed, the free version is updated :)

Aiden will follow next!

You have to first complete the important client that requests the yellow sundress, and once it's completed, you can find it in your Outfits category.

Sounds like it wasn't extracted properly on your computer, so the game experienced a wide array of issues, including being unable to save.

Since you stated you had it extracted it after all, I'm going to suggest playing Tailor Tales on Steam where it installs it for you. There shouldn't be any issues there.

Tailor Tales is still under development, yep! :)

Caine's Plus is available to be purchased on Steam as well, it is not free.

Sorry, there are no patches for Mac, it's not officially supported. It's got too many bugs and permission issues to work properly.

Tailor Tales is meant to be for Windows.

Hello! If you're a Patreon, please follow the Patreon instructions, it has the download link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/welcome-patrons-19940305

You must select 'reread' to read them.

Unfortunately only the colours change, not your hairstyles etc. that's not something I was able to do as it meant redrawing every CG with different hairstyles, and I would never be done lol.

If you want to change the colours that show up in CGs, go to the Settings > Profile > CG Colours. There you can change what you look like in-game.

Completed routes (with Plus):
- Neil
- Caine
- Dimitri
- James

Next route to be completed:
- Gray (ETA at the end of the year)

Make sure Tailor Tales is in a folder with admin rights, that lets the game have permission to write and edit files (so that a save file can be created).

Open up the Tailor Tales folder and browse to the Tailor Tales > www > save folder again. Keep it open. Then launch the game. When playing the game, and going through the intro, save when you are in the main menu. Check the sav folder - did it create any files or not? If it didn't, it means Tailor Tales doesn't have any permission to read/write/edit files in that folder.

  • Is there a way I could get those rpg and backup files separately (Sounds like I'm finally spewing nonsense

Actually since you said the folder is empty, there is no back-up file to be saved anymore. Sorry, but your progress is now lost completely :(

Hmm this sounds like Tailor Tales is too much on your hardware if you are getting a lot of screen freezes, and can't even seem to launch the manual save file.

Have you tried switching to your back-up save file? That one might work. Instructions:

1. Open your Itch App and find Tailor Tales. Click the cogwheel, then click manage. Then click 'open folder in explorer' and browse to this location:
`Tailor Tales > www > save`
2. There is a file in there called **file1.rpgsave** and that is your main file. Rename it to something else, such as "file1_old.rpgsave".
3. There's another file in there called **file3.rpgsave** and this is your back-up file. Rename the back-up file to **file1.rpgsave** to set it as your main file.
4. Open up the game and load your manual save file; you should now be running from your back-up file.

You were able to find the save folder, and inside there were some files ending in .rpgsave? Such as file1.rpgsave. Because that means you have created a save file successfully.

What happens when you say you can't save? When you load up the game again, do you get to choose which save file to load (manual or quick), or are you forced to sit through the entire introduction again?


Note: if you really can't save your data MAKE SURE YOU HAVE UNZIPPED THE TAILOR TALES ZIP FILE, AS YOU CANNOT SAVE WHEN IT IS NOT UNZIPPED.

That's a save file corruption error.

Try and load your quick save file instead. If that one is corrupted too, switch to your back-up save file. Find your back-up save file here:

1. Open your Itch App  and find Tailor Tales. Click the cogwheel, then click manage. Then click 'open folder in explorer' and browse to this location: Tailor Tales > www > save
2. There is a file in there called file1.rpgsave and that is your main file. Rename it to something else, such as "file1_old.rpgsave".
3. There's another file in there called file3.rpgsave and this is your back-up file. Rename the back-up file to file1.rpgsave to set it as your main file.
4. Open up the game and load your manual save file; you should now be running from your back-up file.

I don't think I follow? What does winrar have to do with saving the game?

When you said you unzipped it, that does mean you were playing the game from the installed folder on your PC, correct? You're not going back to the zip folder to press the exe file? Unzipping = extracting with Winrar.

Make sure the folder you extracted Tailor Tales to also has administrator permission rights to write/edit files.
