The console versions of My Time at Portia released both physically and digitally on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch platforms on April 16, 2019, though manufacturing delays caused the physical North American version to be delayed until May 16, 2019. The console versions are handled by Team17, rather than Pathea Games.

By pre-ordering the game prior to April 16, 2019, players could receive a thank-you letter in their mailbox with a Special Gift Box attached, containing a Casual Jacket and Shredded Jeans clothing set, 5 Beef Jerky and 5 Rainbow Jam, a Winged Lion statue and a Goolo Goolo Clock, and a Coin Bag containing 500 Gols. This Housewarming Gift Set can also be bought from each console's respective online store.[1]

Players still experiencing bugs are encouraged to report them to Team17 via this form.

DifferencesEdit

Between consolesEdit

The exact price of the console versions varies depending on the player's country, as with many games. In each country, the price of their physical and digital versions are the same. The exception to this rule is the physical verify ] Nintendo Switch version, which is more expensive due to manufacturing costs.[2]

Certain aspects of the Nintendo Switch's graphics, such as grass, are less detailed due to graphical limitations, though Team17 is looking into optimizing grass further so that it may be included in the future.

Differences from PCEdit

Much of the content that is available on PC is currently available on consoles, with some exceptions. Some items and recipes, such as the Forge and the crafting recipes for the First Aid Kit and Simple Antidote, are not present on consoles yet. Voiceovers are entirely missing, but are currently under consideration and are hoped to be added.[3]

NPCs' gift preferences appear to be different from PC, and give different gifting values. It is currently unknown whether this is a bug or by design. verify ] Console gifting values may change in future updates. (Gifting values on the wiki currently reflect the values that were extracted from the PC version.)

Workshop item limitEdit

Unlike the unlimited amount of items the player can place in their yard on PC versions (other than the limitations of yard space), console players are limited to placing a maximum of 50 items that display production timers, verify ] such as crafting stations and Small and Large Planter Boxes.[4] Attempting to exceed this limit will cause a message stating that the player has reached their workshop item limit to pop up, and they will be unable to place any more items,[5] even if those additional items are not production items.

A possible way to circumvent this limit is to place a maximum of 49 production items, allowing the player to place a potentially unlimited amount of non-production items.[4] verify ] Testing is needed.

  • However, certain non-production items, such as Grapevines, are considered "production items" by the game and count towards this 50 item limit.[6]

Game controlsEdit

The game controls for each game differ slightly depending on the console's controller.

ChangelistsEdit

Main article: Console changelist

Please visit the console changelist page for information about each update to the console versions.

A brief historyEdit

Certain aspects that are already available on PC, such as voiceovers, facial hair/decorations and the game speed slider were not included at launch.

The first major update for the console versions was released approximately in mid May 2019.[7] This update fixed many of the bugs that console players have been encountering, and adds features like more endgame and character content, the time speed slider, player birthdays, facial hair, tattoos, and freckles, etc. that were already available on the PC version.

Subsequent updates fixed various bugs and improved on the loading lag players had reported, including the loading time when launching the game and the time it takes to load in and out of menus and different maps.

BugsEdit

ErrorSprite Reporting bugs
Bug reports are recommended to be submitted directly to Team17:
https://www.team17.com/support/

Each version may have different bugs, potentially different from those that the PC version experienced. Bugs may or may not be exclusive to each console; more information is needed.

The bugs listed on this page are categorized under the console they were encountered unless people report encountering the same bug on different platforms. If a bug is bolded, that indicates that the bug is major and/or has been reported by multiple people. Bugs that are currently listed here have not yet been fixed, and were reported on sources such as the Pathea, Team17, or MTaP Wiki Discord servers, or in comments on MTaP wiki. Once a bug has been fixed, it shall be removed from this page.

Not all of the bugs are listed on this page yet; feel free to edit them in or add them in the comments of this page, but please refer to the Manual of Style before editing! For example, please use third person ("the player") instead of second person ("you").

All console versionsEdit

  • The Housewarming Gift Set only arrives on Month 1, Day 2, so players that did not get it in their mailbox on that day (such as due to purchasing the item as DLC after starting the game) cannot receive their items yet, unless they start a new character.
  • Leaving Amber Island's Cave before completing The Cave on Amber Island can result in the player getting locked out. It is possible that the player may either have to start a new game or wait for the next large game update, projected to be in mid to late May.[8]
  • Leaving WOW Industries before completing The Poisoned Water can result in the player getting locked out. It is possible that the player may be able to re-enter from an invisible access point to located slightly to the left of the WOW Industries entrance, as shown here.
  • Xbox bug - In sky

    Player stuck in sky

    Players may warp to the sky upon exiting a building, and will have to reload the day. The player can move, the minimap displays their apparent location, and the sky will change color as the day goes on, but buildings and other elements from the world have disappeared and only the sky can be seen.
    • Buildings that players have reported exiting before warping: Portia School and the player's house (Switch), Desert Abandoned Ruins (PS4)
    • A similar bug appeared in the PC alpha version, where players might warp to the sky upon exiting the school.
  • Gift preferences may differ between the PC and console versions (may or may not be bug).
  • Xbox bug - No building

    Invisible Research Center

    Buildings may be invisible, and may or may not be enterable.
    • The Research Center may still be able to be entered and exited, if the player is able to locate the invisible door.
  • If the player accepts Mission: Unknown Package late in the day, when they wake up, they may immediately fail the mission, even if there was supposed to be another day or so to complete it.
Fixed bugs

Unspecified console versionsEdit

  • While wearing Casual Jacket, equipping Uniform Jacket from inventory by pressing A on it can cause the Casual Jacket to drop off the player and onto the ground some distance away. (This issue may not be limited to just these items, and may also be encountered on PC.)
  • Sparring Higgins may result in the player gaining Presley's Sofa as a reward for winning.
  • It is possible for mounts to die. When the player interacts with the dead mount, it respawns. The respawned mount can walk on water.[10]

PS4Edit

Fixed bugs
  • Splash Screen example

    Example of a Splash Screen on PC, similar to what console players see

    Infinite loading screen; upon attempting to load the game, the game may be stuck on the loading screen and is unable to be played. Controller input causes sounds of navigating through menu, but the screen is stuck on the splash screen with the two birds bouncing up and down. More information needed.

SwitchEdit

  • Player may be unable to pull the Rogue Knight's Sword from the ground after Mission: The Final Battle.
  • Player may be unable to proceed with Mission: The Dee-Dee Stops Here and thus the main storyline, because Higgins builds all five of the Dee-Dee Stops. It is normal on pc for Higgins to build one or two Dee-Dee Stops. Switch players are adviced to prepare materials for three Dee-Dee Stops and to build them as soon as possible.
  • Player may experience invisible guests when holding a Party. The food will be eaten and the player gains friendship points, but the guests are invisible.
  • Players may experience crashes due to lack of memory space. Memory space is needed both for game patches, savegames and screenshots. Memory card space can be expanded by adding a microSD card. For more information, see this guide from Nintendo
Fixed bugs
  • Gathering any resources may give the player gols.
  • It is advised not to take pictures of monsters photo collection until finishing all photo quests. It is currently not possible to delete photos on Switch, so if the player exceeds taking 36 photos, the photo missions cannot be completed.
  • The sounds of the Robopig Rider may not cease playing after riding, even when going to the next day. The player may have to restart the game to make the sound stop playing.

Xbox OneEdit

  • The player may be unable to accept The Bassanio Lift. The commission will appear on the board and can be hovered over, but the commission may lack a description or reward, and may not register attempted input to accept the mission.
  • Robopig Rider disappears after a few days.
Fixed bugs
  • Infinite loading screen; upon attempting to load the game, the game may be stuck on the loading screen and is unable to be played. Controller input causes sounds of navigating through menu, but the screen is stuck on the splash screen with the two birds bouncing up and down. More information needed.
