How to fix Far Cry 3 for 3.41?
How to fix Far Cry 3 for 3.41? –
I have Far Cry 3 disk(BLUS-30687) and have modified it with aldostools to run on my 3.41JB machine. It installs and loads, but when I start a new game, it doesn't show the movie/cutscene and you can't save the game. Been readin around, seems like a common issue that people have fixed with various pkg's(duplex, crack patch, some JOE patch, part1, part2, etc.) I can't find any of these to dl anywhere, except for one that is a fix for 3.41/3.55, but it is for the psn version, not the disk version. Has anyone fixed this for a retail disk?
First of all why the hell are you still on 3.41 update to rebug 4.21.2 play all the new games its really a no brainer

The only reason I'v had time to even look into it now is I've been layed up with a bum back the last few days and ordered off work. I've done the research, I know I can easily make it work properly IF I could find a couple files to dl. I don't use any torrent services(don't have the need/want) and don't want to use any, I've searched for days, signed up for a few dozen sites, etc. I just need someone to pm me a link to where I can get some files to test. Mainly the Duplex-far-cry3-crack file. Secondly maybe some "exeTRIMall" or some "ebootLeggerJoe" file.Their always included with a rip of the game itself, I don't want the game, just the crack patch file.
But it is broke. There are new scripts and libraries in higher firmware that are not in 3.41. If you want to play the newest games, then update to a 4.xx CFW. No way around it
I'm on 3.55 and I play all the newer games :/
That you know of. Bottom line is for a lot of new games to work on 3.41 or 3.55 they have to be completely disassembled. It's not as easy as resigning on some of them. If you don't want to deal with the hassle of not knowing which are or aren't going to work even after resigining then update. If you don't want to update then you will run into problems like the OP is. I don't know how much more simply I can put it
Thanks for the info. I have a "legit" machine with newest firmware if there's something newer I have to play...BUT I've seen alot of "fixes" and "patches" for FarCry3 on 3.41/3.55 that have worked for others. Problem is, all the ones I can find to DL are for the duplex ripped psn version of the game. I want nothing to do with illegal DL's or ripped psn games, I just want to install my disk(BLUS30687) on my JB'd machine. I was hoping someone on 3.41 or 3.55 could chime in on what they used and where they got it to make the disk version run properly.
If you want to try to patch it yourself I would suggest using aldostools' bruteforce tool. Just copy the eboot, param.sfo, and any self/sprx files to the program's directory and run bruteforce.exe. When it's done, just move the new files and the backups that it creates back into your game backup. Hit refresh in multiman and play
I've been using those tools to experiment patching some of my newer games to run on JB machine. I can get it(FarCry3) to install and load and play after editing with the tools, but there's a deeper problem. There are no cutscenes, free-roam only, minimap doesn't work, can't save...This problem was experienced by many trying to run their backups, not just someone like me with my ancient setup(with newest managers,cfw,etc). From all the reading I've done the last couple days, it seems this problem was also experienced by those trying to run the NPEB01096 psn style version of the game, not just those with disk. The problem (at least with the psn version) was apparently solved with applying a "duplex fix pkg (CFW 4.21)" and then the "EbootleggerJOE / EXEtrimALL pkg (CFW 3.41-3.55)". I finally got these files and screwed around trying to change my BLUS game into the NPEB name so the dl'd patches would apply, I tried leaving the game BLUS, and changing all the files I could to make the patches reflect that name...Problem is, the patches are for the psn version and will install game on xmb like an actual psn game, so then I can't launch from my manager, and it otherwise doesn't work, I get a dirty/damages disk error. I didn't try any brute force tool yet, but I don't think signing the game/patches to my FW is the problem, I just wish some could tell me what needs changed otherwise, like the psn patches take care of. Thanks for your help.
