For some reason I'm having the same problem, but I have no preexisting data. (I think I downloaded the demo before I bought the game but I deleted it and everything with it). The game installs to the harddrive fine but then freezes at the loading before starting the game.
Are there files I need to delete that aren't in the XMB?
I too have the same problem/issue. I get Madden 2011 to load but it gets stuck at load screen.
I deleted all references of Madden 2011 on the XMB screen, (game saved data), but not sure where the roster data is to delete? Could someone please help us in reference to what data needs to be deleted...?
For example, what directory is it on the hard drive, since we have ftp access we should be able to delete the necessary files.
Use Hermes V3 and above and it should work fine.
I just now tried re-ripping Madden 11 but still won't get past the screen saying "NOW LOADING". I tried ripping it to the HDD and also tried FTP transfer with no success in getting the game to get past that screen.
I deleted all previous data related to the game before transferring to HDD. Thus far, I've tried Gaia Manager(1.03.1) & MultiMAN to get this working in combination with Hermes 4B & PL3 default as well. Neither gives me success.
FTP is giving me all kinds of problems transferring games. From PC I've tried both FileZilla and FlashFXP but when my games transfers & get towards the end I get disconnected/timeout.
From PS3 I've tried the standard "FTP Server". I've tried the built-in FTP server with Gaia Manager. I've tried the MultiMAN background running server. None of them will work. None of the combinations will work. The FTP problem not only applies to game transfers, it also can just be viewing the HDD contents in general from PC too.
I keep getting disconnected no matter what I try. I'm using a router but don't have anything to block my connection to cause it to disconnect/timeout. Once I get the timeout/disconnect then it locks up my PS3. This is getting ridiculous! :chinscrat:mad:
Mine, froze at halftime. Disc plays fine, but backup froze on me.
First time ever played! No previous data...
Using hermes-psn-eco-xoeo-cyberskunk-evilsperm-allboardshex.zip and Open Manager 1.17.1
Oh yeah, game is on External HDD
why don't you try upgrading your OM to 2.1 and what are you jbing with?
I then re-installed and added the data back including game patches and all was back to normal. I'm using PL3 default with Gaia,OM 1.17.2, and MultiMAN all working now. Before the problem, I could only get OM to boot these two games with both Gaia and MulitMAN giving me the black screen.
Even after re-installing, both Gaia and MuliMAN wouldn't initially work. I then used the "fix EBOOT.BIN" from Gaia and all was well. I then applied the game updates and other data and they both work normal now. :)
