Backup Manager & ModNation Racers
Backup Manager & ModNation Racers –
Ok, I looked at the compiled list of working games, and ModNation Racers works from disc, but when I put it on the internal harddrive for use with Backup Manager, the games chokes. Worried that the harddrive might be too full and choking it down, I deleted some games. I now have almost 8GB free (with both the game and its additional install) and still it chokes. The menu loads fine, but when I try to get into the first race, it loads to ~95% and then stops; choked to death. I have tried it with internet enabled and disabled, and I get nothing. Anybody else having an issue with these two games? Did you get around it? Or does the list need to be updated?
That is what I want to know because I was going to back up this game and I was not sure if it worked on internal or external(With external I had read that it lags) so I was going to back it up internally, but with what is going on with you, I'd also like to know if this game works or not
ddi you try to delete your game data ?
Yep. Deleted everything: save data and installed data. Loaded with BM, let it install (even tried to download the update, but it had errors installing) and then booted it. It loads with no real problem, but when you play the beginning of the game, after the intro sports-show like talking, when you are loading your first race, it starts chugging on the load, and hangs at ~95%.
So I take it no one else has had this problem?
I have this game and it worked ok from external, just slow and a lot better on internal/
So in your opinion this game works better on internal then external..thanks for the info..will try that

How many gig is the game..I keep on reading different numbers..on the compatibility chart it shows about 18 gig but other places it shows 8 gig..so it just loads poorly at the beginning but once its up and running it runs fine? What kind of external drive do you have? I want to get one but dont know which one is good to get

My external is just a generic Roswell case with an IDE drive in it for the time being.
Initial load time is horrendous (several minutes), but like I said, once the game is up it runs fine. I haven't tried it from the internal HDD, but I've read that the load times are much better if you store it on the PS3's internal.
I have the same problem. Loading screen with a controller layout on the left and loads very slow, and then seems to hang at 95%. I have it on internal HD (ps3 slim 250gb).
