It's time for another round of bug updates, this time for our wonderful games!
I've created a new Sticky in the Technical Support Forum that is dedicated to troubleshooting games, so that I can consolidate all the different reports into one easy-to-find place. Included in that thread is a link to Game Testing, which explains how to use the Developer Tools for the very few users who are still having problems receiving game rewards. I'm happy to see that less than 1% of users are still experiencing issues with game rewards!

Kickstarter Rewards: First Class Clothes!
What a marvelous Halloween that was! My dear Piper loves the holiday so much, and seeing you all enjoy her “event” warms my heart. I’m incredibly impressed with the costume talent shown this year, despite a lack of traditional costumes!
Though the Abandoned Arcade is shutting down tonight at midnight (Eastern) you don’t have to stop the fashion fun. Dot Eyes, Expressionless Eyes, Murder Eyes, Jack Eyes, Jack Nose, Jack Grin, Pumpkin Grin, Fangs, Stitch Mouth, Ghostly Pale Makeup, Fake Blood, Boonana Recipe, Vengeful Boonana Recipe, and Eye Scream Sundae Recipe are all disappearing until next year’s scare, but I’ve got our First Class designer apparel in stock at the Headmaster’s Office!
Peruse the creative genius of the Monarch, Neo, Cosmic, Aesthetic, and Frosted sets designed by our Kickstarter backers. These sets are available in the Badge Bundle, which gives you one of each item in the set, or the Pick A Part, which lets you pick one single item from the set.

New Items: Magazines!
Ahhhh, what a beautiful day! A perfect time to settle down in the greenhouse and read in the sunlight. Luckily I was able to scoop up all the latest issues of my favorite magazine publications earlier today~
Let's start with the most important one, Horoscope Monthly. Oh, silly, I’m not saying that my horoscope is always right, I’m just saying that I want to be clued in to certain disasters ahead of time to avoid them! Not to mention it gives me a good idea who to watch for the best gossip...
Oh! Andre has more work featured in this month’s Final Fashion. What a beautiful dress! That model is so lucky… I wonder if they let her keep it? Did you know I've modeled for them a few times? It is just fantastic! You get to meet the designer, get lots of pictures taken, and they have all these fans blowing for glamour shots - it's just so much fun! And half the time you get to keep the clothes since they were tailored for you anyway!
And now for the best one! You have to save The Rose for last if you are reading anything else. Just don't let yourself get too behind or you might get spoiled and that is just the worst. Let's see... oh ho... oh ho ho, oh my, Robert you naughty boy, spreading rumors that you are the secret rose giver? And, what... Casey is secretly a pair of twins switching in and out of the house?! No? Yes! What?! GASP!
Oh... oh no, I can't talk to anyone about this till they read it! Quick! Run down to the Campus Supplies store and buy your own copy and come back! Go! GO GO GO!
Hopeless Halloween Extension
I noticed a few comments from users who missed out on the majority of the Halloween weekend due to other obligations and our very short notice, so we’ve decided to extend the time limit for a full week. The Abandoned Arcade will be around until the evening of Friday, November 4th. After that, our limited-time-only items will disappear into the night until next year’s Halloween event!
I also wanted to give you all a short update on what we’re doing with the site as of late. Mobile users may notice some minor bugs getting fixed by Steph this week. Club has some very exciting item updates headed your way, including Kickstarter-designed items and apparel to be released over the next two weeks!
I’m focusing on the games again. I’ve taken down the 2nd version, since most users seem to be able to use both versions exactly the same, and I’ve pushed a fix for slow-network users so that you should be able to receive rewards even if you’re all the way on the other side of the world from our US servers. I’m chasing down that Memory bug that causes it to occasionally freeze, and hopefully I can find a fix for that in the next week or two. There’s still a couple users who have issues with Firefox blocking the game rewards because of depreciated code, and I’ll continue investigating that but other browsers should be able to play the games just fine now. As always, any problems should be reported in the Technical Support Forum with as many details as you can provide!
Thank you all again for helping us make Tattered Weave the best it can be!
WOOoooOOooooOOO! It’s spooky, scary, creepy, costume time! Halloween is the best, isn’t it? It’s the one time of year when you won’t get in trouble for wearing fake blood to class! Make sure you seal that makeup and body paint, though, or you’ll be scrubbing it off the desks. Trust me, I learned that the hard way.
So, Andre, let’s hear it! What have you got for us this year? Oooh, I hope it’s something horrifying!
