this is weird.
i rebooted my ps3 after it was working, and now the ps3 doesnt see the update.
its believable because when you initially rename the install dir, then install updates, move updates to root of hdd0, then rename the install dir back it only ever sees the update and not the install dir.
when i rebooted, it saw the install dir again but not the update and prompted for an update despite it still being in the root of hdd0.
this is for modnation racers.
anyone else care to test?
well, unfortunately this doesnt seem to hold up
confirmed to go back to normal after a reboot.
if someone wants to test a theory for me to get aorund having to reinstall the updates as this trick only works until you reboot:
do the original procedure verify update works. reboot console and verify update no longer works.
ftp into console, rename install dir by adding a - to the end (if install dir is there) move update back to hdd0/game (from hdd0). reboot console. console should now see update installed, but no install dir if there was one. ftp back in, and again move the update back to hdd0 (from hdd0/game) and rename the install dir (if it has one) so it doesnt have a - on the end.
boot game, verify update works.
There´s also a RE5 Gold-Move Edition available
which has the updates already installed on Disc, maybe comparing these versions could help?
I just went out and bought RE5 GE Move Edition or w/e it is they are calling it. When you try and start the game it says you must install 16MB of game data first. Thats the update installing from the disc onto the HDD.
Also looks like the navigation controller just wont work in game but the Move one does. To play I have to reboot out of JB mode. This might be fixed with that recent zoidberg hermes v2 toggle.
Just tried using Zoidberg and can confirm that did fix it.
so the move controller and the navigation controller works in JB mode with the zoidberg toggle?
interesting. anyone gone out and bought the heavy rain move edition?
if this zoidberg thing (not checked what this zoidberg actually is yet - an alternative manager or new payload?) actually does allow the playback of Heavy Rain and Res Evil (with full Move support) from backups - then will finally make me order the Move as its the news I've been hoping/waiting for
