Play disk required games without disk?
Play disk required games without disk? –
This info may be out there already, but if not...I have a cech-2501b and if i use backup manager to load a disk required game from hdd with a disk in the drive, then after the ps3 returns to the xmb I can eject the disk and select the folder above "install package files" and the game will then boot without any disk in the drive. I have been playing brutal legend and mirrors edge this way for about 20 hours without any problems.
Edit: I was using backup manager 1.1 and the games mentioned above would not mount without a disk. I then tried gaia manager 1.03 and with that program those games will mount without a disk. So now I am confused. How do we determine a game to be "disk required", since a qualifier for that designation seem to depend upon the manager currently being used, and is it guaranteed that if a game mounts without a disk then it will boot without a disk?
