Just moved from hermes 3.41 to kmeaw 3.55 and having issues please help
Um hi folks. You may recall me as the guy who has been griping and moaning about 3.41 needing more support etc. Well I gave up on it and moved to kmeaw3.55 today. I've went through and randomly checked several of my game backups that I already had on external for use with my 3.41 and so far they all work. Excellent news right! Well here is the problem. I've moved to 3.55 in order to enjoy all the games I've bought which have been sitting around gathering dust, several of which have recently been fixed for use with 3.55. The 3.55 fix'd games I have bought so far are these:
Batman Arkham City
Modern Warfare 3
Deus Ex Human Revolution
Ninja Gaiden 3
Call of Juarez The Cartel
I started by applying the 3.55 fixes that have been made for the games. So far the only ones I've gotten to work are Ninja Gaiden 3 and Twisted Metal. Twisted Metal already worked on 3.41.
The error message I'm getting on most of these games is 80010017, which I understand is a game loading error and supposedly means that the game is corrupted or that there are files which have been modified causing the game to give this error. Since the games are backups from my own discs I am at a loss to figure out this problem. So far I have tried the following with most of these games with no resolution.
0.) researching error msg (no luck really as most forums about this say the same thing)
1.) select+x (duh)
2.) re-apply fix (maybe fix was lost in translation between 3.41 and 3.55)
3.) download fix again and re-apply fix (maybe corrupt download)
4.) re-rip game and start from fresh (maybe corrupt game backup)
5.) move game to internal (maybe 3.55 has issues playing from external on some games)
6.) update multiman (maybe a bug or something that has been fixed in a newer version)
7.) delete game data (maybe corrupt game data or update)
8.) variations of of all the above (who knows?)
9.) changing bdrom to 'standard' from 'hermes' (worth a try?)
10.) coming here for advice from professionals (hope someone can help)
I am using a slim 120g ps3 with kmeaw 3.55
ps: do i need to re-install the bdemu pkg after updating to 3.55? Haven't tried that, but not sure why that would be an issue with all the other games working... How could it be that only the new games aren't working??!!! ugh. Totally bummed out here someone please help me.
Another thing I haven't tried which I am about to try is this: I've previously downloaded many game updates from multiman but never installed them, I'm going to install these updates and see if that helps..
Edit: Okay, installed the bdemu2.pkg for 3.55 and my error code changed. Batman AC still won't start but now it's giving a different error msg: (800103C). Haven't tried any others yet, I'm focusing on Batman for now, if I get that working I'm sure the rest will work. I tried deleting the game data too and the error message changed back to 80010017 after doing that. Any other ideas anyone?
In another twist if strangeness and possibility of discovering an answer this also happened: I have also been having problems with Uncharted 3 since before I updated to 3.55, I think its a problem with the fix on this game because it freezes at the co-op screen when a second player tries to enter for splitscreen, otherwise the game plays well in one player campaign. So while working on this on the side I updated the game data to the latest and now this game won't even start, it's giving me the same familiar error 80010017 now. There is something going on here that has to do with the game data I think, I didn't install all the game data files I had downloaded from mm as I'm not sure they go to the games I'm trying to fix anyway instead I just installed the game update that comes up when you start the game (on uncharted). I think I may have installed them before while I was still on 3.41. Maybe this will spur someone's memory who's reading this and had a similar problem..
Thanks in advance ya'll.
