Thanks! It's a shame that cross-platform still isn't the norm. At least Proton on Steam is helping to pick up the slack a bit.

Excellent, thanks for letting me know. I'll start rolling out the patch through Steam/Itch to other players in the near future.

Ah, so it's the Steam version. In that case it's probably Steam's cloud save syncing restoring the file.

Try this: https://drive.proton.me/urls/BG73896C6W#ZH2BXLXRw7zd

I've just put together a quick patch which should re-check the H patch on load, so you shouldn't need to touch the save file if you replace 006.rpa in your install directory with the file above.

It sounds like you need to delete the AppData file as well.

Save files are backed up to a second directory, so if they're deleted from one they may be restored from the other.

Try deleting both the save file in the install directory you've screenshotted and also from %APPDATA%/RenPy/TNLT-1486410504/

It appears to be in the right place. The only possibility I can see would be if you started playing the game without the H patch, it save on quit, now it's automatically loading that save (without the H patch applied) and not checking again.

Can you try closing the game, deleting your quitsave file (game/saves/quitsave-LT1.save) and starting again?

You might need to also delete the same file from your AppData directory.

Can you follow the instructions in the post and upload a screenshot of the file where you've placed it so I can check if it's in the right place?

Don't force yourself, I just thought it was worth mentioning. The bad end is the trickiest one to get too.

Thanks Anwynn, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it so much.

If you've already played the true end then there's no need to go back for the good end. There's still the bad end though, which is the hardest one to get.

Eris's route is on Xbox nowadays. The main game Sable's Grimoire on Xbox should have everything that the version here does, it just came later because it needed to be ported and then approved.

The other games in the series (Man and Elf, A Dragon's Treasure) aren't on Xbox though.

Thanks EfyrAethylla, I'm glad to hear you liked it so much.

Unfortunately they've both been rejected by Xbox (A Dragon's Treasure has been released on the other consoles already). I don't think it's likely that xbox will change their mind.

This one is just a short, free, kinetic VN. More along the lines of my other free games, rather than a lengthy commercial one like Sable's Grimoire.

JAST say that version 1.09 should be available now.

Hmm, I sent them the builds months ago. I'll try contacting them again.

She does have a route, but I wouldn't call the ending romantic. It's a Good End for her which will continue in Sable's Grimoire 2.

The game is still being updated here. It's a one-time purchase.

I linked to the Steam page because that's where the roadmap outlining the development of the Sable's Grimoire series is maintained. Itch.io and other stores will continue to receive the same updates as the Steam version does.

No. https://steamcommunity.com/app/717850/discussions/0/1743392703799623229/

There won't be any new story content added. ie. New routes/endings and such.

The only planned updates are maintenance builds to make sure the game keeps working with new platforms. eg. Mac M1 or Linux ARM machines.

Thanks, I've fixed that up now. For the Man And Elf page too.

I've uploaded a new build of the same name which fixes the choice problem.

I've quickly run through the game and the extra and didn't encounter any other errors, so I think it should be good now.

Hmm, alright. I'll try it out shortly and see if I can replicate that.

I've just uploaded a new build. It's called "Sickness (Android)" and should download a file called "games.zetsubou.sickness-release.apk"

Can you download and install that? You shouldn't need to uninstall first. It should keep your existing save data if you just install it over the top of the existing installation.

It's built with a much newer version of the game engine and targets a recent version of Android. In my testing this version fixed the error you've screenshotted above.

Thanks, I'll see what I can do.

Could you take a screenshot of one of the errors?

I'll try it tonight, but it might be because it was compiled for an old version of Android. I'll look at doing a new build soon.

I wish I had a better answer for you, but unfortunately nothing has changed since the last time that question was asked.

All I'm getting from the people porting the update is that it's being worked on. I don't have an ETA.

No, there will most likely be one more game in her route. It won't be until after Sable's Grimoire 2 is released though, so it's still a few years away.

Hi Arclighted, I'm glad to hear you've enjoyed Sable's Grimoire so much. I'll try to keep this relatively spoiler-free. The new content is coming to consoles at some stage... but it's in the hands of the company who port SG, so I don't know when it'll actually be done.

Rei's new ending isn't a double romance ending. It's not a romantic ending at all (though it's definitely a happier ending for Rei).

Whether other characters (including Rei) get their own games or not is yet to be decided. At the very least it wouldn't be until SG2 is done. Any hypothetical new games for different heroines would take place chronologically after SG2 and continue on from their routes in SG2. So in Rei's case it could potentially be SG1 (rei's route) -> SG2 (rei's route) -> new spin-off game.

That's how I'd see it playing out, though again, it's not decided yet. I won't rule out more heroine-specific games, but with the next two games in the series (SG2 and Project Homonculus) already announced I'd rather hold off on making any promises until they're done.

Alright, I've heard back from JAST. They'll be putting the update up in the coming week.

Apparently they've been having technical issues since the new website recently went up, so some things have been delayed.

I'll try getting into contact with JAST again and see if they can make the new builds live and/or verify your purchase (I don't have access to that information).

Which version are you currently on? If it's 1.08 or higher I could make a patch file.

I've provided a few updates to JAST recently, but I haven't heard anything back from them, so I'm not sure if they've actually made the new builds live. If they're still on 1.07 then I'll need to chase them up.

Can you take a screenshot of the patch file inside of the game folder, so I can see if you've got the right file in the right place?

Do you have the option of installing the 18+ DLC from Steam directly? If it's available in your region, that would be the easiest option. Steam should automatically put the file in the right place.

If not, it should be a matter of finding the game in your steam library, right clicking on it and going into Manage -> Browse local files. Then open the "game" folder and copy the .rpa file into that folder. The game needs to be restarted after that (if it's currently running).
Also, make sure you downloaded the patch from https://zetsubou.games/tomboys-need-love-too/index.html
If you downloaded it from somewhere else, it's possible that it's an old version of the patch made for a previous version of the game.

Done.

I think the itch.io client does auto updates as well?

In any case, if you send me your email address I can send you a Steam key. They take a day or two to generate/be approved, so there will be a little delay.

Which store did you get the game from? The itch.io version should come pre-patched, with "TNLT_adult_patch.rpa" already in the game folder.

Also, which platform? Windows, Mac, Linux, Android?

I don't think I'll be able to help with that then. Please contact Gamuzumi, they make the console ports and have far more knowledge on the consoles than I do http://www.gamuzumi.com/contact.php

I've heard there's an issue when starting the game with a USB gamepad. Could you try starting with a wireless controller?


If that doesn't help, you may need to contact Gamuzumi. They publish the console port of Sable's Grimoire.

The app package name is the same as before, so if you still have the game installed, installing the new APK should update the existing application and keep the save data.

If you've uninstalled the app, then I'm not sure if the old save data will still be there.

Worst case scenario, if you don't have the old save data, you could enable skipping of "All Text" in preferences and just skip until you hit the new route.

Sorry, I don't think that's possible.

Your best bet might be to go into the Preferences page, change the skip setting to All Text, then skip until you get up to where you were on Android.

Hi Rance, I'm not currently looking to hire any translators.

That sounds reasonable to me. I hope that the continuation of Jorou's route in SG2 sheds a better light on all of this. The Joanne ending is obviously too brief to cover the breadth of the issues involved here, and doesn't do either character the courtesy of a proper discussion. SG2 is still a long way off, but I'll keep this conversation in mind for when it does reach that stage of development.
