anyone else getting black screens on certain games?
anyone else getting black screens on certain games? –
Upgraded to Rogero CFW 4.30 and some games now freeze on a black screen after launching from multiman.
I've tried every combination of settings in multiman...blue ray mirror, internal etc.
These are games with original eboots, so theoretically I'd think they should work. Multiman is latest version, as provided in Rogero's triple pack. Md5 was fine.
It's only a few games. Most work just fine.
The only game I've tried so far is Black Ops - and that gives me a black screen. I'm using it via the DISC! Black screen.

EDIT 2: nevermind, still black.
I have Rogero 4.30 CFW and try Multiman 4.09.00 - 4.08.01 , black screen on Naruto Storm 2 ( back to xmb no error message ) Little Big Planet 2 ( Black screen and a bip error then freeze my ps3 ) , Zumba Fitness ( back to xmb no error message ) , i have to try some games but i think a i have black screen with Dead Space 2 , Demon's souls. All are originals files.
Games like AC3 , UFC3 , NFS Most wanted works Good , i have black screen only with old games.
I think i will come back to 3.55 !!! All Games Works !!!
EDIT : I downgraded and put Rogero 4.21 cfw v1.00 and my games works fine !!! ( i think it's the same with 1.09d ) so for me the 4.30 cfw is not good , that's all

I've the same problem, and i get it with 4.21 too. The external HDD games freezes in a black screen, and y copy that game to internal and works fine. With 4.21 i get that error but i don't know how get fixed, maybe i get lucky and games works in ths fw too without do anything

i'm still in the process of ripping my entire 130 game library (around 30 done so far), and since going from kmeaw3.55 to rogero 4.30 i've started ging through each of those 30 to test they stikll work.
tested 7 so far with 100% success rate, including downoading all official game uodates.
also, some games it might just be that its loading while on black screen....e.g. i just tried "the darkness" and i thought it was my first instance of black screen on this fw.....but i noticed that the activity light on my external hdd was flashing away, so i left it for around 60 seconds and then it booted and plays fine
now up to 16 games tested, 100% working. here is what i've been doing:-
0 - DELETE any GAME DATA from titles that you've previously had to patch or had to install a pkg to get it to run (and any games that you've had to edit the fiels on the backup itself, either replace with the originals, or just re-rip all together)
1 - ensure that BD Emulation mode under multiman system settings is set to "standard", not hermes or any other, then restart the ps3 system.
then for each game do the following:-
2 - Set game settings to EXTERNAL, clear INTERNAL and DISC if you had them set
3 - Set Game settings to BD EMU, clear DIRECT BOOT, EXT CACHE. USB PATCH, FAVOURITE if you had these set
4 - Fix Permissions (this can sometimes take some time, but leave it to finish)
5 - load game (will return to xmb)
6 - boot game from disc icon
7 - install any official game update that you are presented with
8 - play and enjoy!
i'm no expert, infact i've very new to the ps3 jailbreak stuff, but these are the settigns and process i've been using and so far it's worked with 100% success rate without having to look for any patches or anything like that with this firmware

Thanks so much GlorisPS3! You have saved me a lot of time and have stopped banging my head into a wall! I was totally bonkers with the games not playing . The settings being the culprit should be checked first. I have noticed most of the time that my games had updates and saved data in them. When i would delete those, the games would come up perfectly!
@GlorisPS3, good job!
