NTSC Console + PAL Games - Error 80028F10 (possible workaround)
NTSC Console + PAL Games - Error 80028F10 (possible workaround) –
My apologies if this has been covered but i searched and was unable to find any threads talking about the issue or the workaround.
Ok so those of us with NTSC Consoles and SD TV's are probably aware of the good ole Error 80028F10 it occurs when you try to run certain PAL games on a console. While buying a HD TV is a solution to this problem not everyone can get a new tv for the sake of a few games.
A current Compatability list can be found at the AV Forums
Now the usual workaround for this is to own a copy of Resistance Fall of Man and follow the guidelines in the AV Forum thread.
However its pretty annoying having to do that every time you want to run a game, and for those with CFW and backup managers there may be an alternative.
Its pretty simple and it seems to work for some titles, just edit the PARAM.SFO file with the wonderful PS3SFOEdit program. Tick the two 480 resolution boxes save the file and boot the game as per usual from your backup manager of choice.
This will most likely only work for those titles where the Resistance exploit would work. I have tested it on Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe and can say that it works. I assume that it wont work for every game, its worth the time to try though.
I hope this helps those of you like me with an NTSC console stuck on a SD TV trying to play PAL games that wont run.
I tried with GOTY Oblivion (PAL) on a NTSC console and it didn't work.
Anyone could, please, help me out? I am doing this for my little brother who's 12 and he really wants to play this game out.
EDIT : It worked, I messed up. Forget the request.
