NFS Hot Pursuit Black screen
NFS Hot Pursuit Black screen –
okay before you flame me... I have read over 200 pages of posts and have about 10 hours into this. I have a copy of NFS-HP that sourced as an ISO.
I copied it to my external and added the updated EBOOT.BIN.
I have FW341_Hermes_355SPOOF_FLP & FW341_PL3_355SPOOF_FLP VIA Rockbox on an Ipod 2G Mini.
I have tried both payloads numerous times and Gaia, OpenManager and MultiMAN. w/ and w/ out patching via Managers
I get the same result every time. Black screen but I can exit out back into XMB.
I've deleted everything and made a new copy and started from scratch and had the same result. At one point I even tried the update out of desperation but of course that didn't work.
I have seen a few posts with others having this issue but they are scattered, could someone please help -anything would be appreciated.
At this point I am thinking my source may be the issue and I am trying to get another copy but any feedback would be appreciated. THANKS!
don't use direct-boot. i use the gaia manager with some blue-ray in the drive.
<<<< FIX >>>> –
I know EXACTLY what the problem is. This has taken me the last couple of evenings of trying stuff and reading up on here. I'm not sure if someone wants to make this a sticky.... It's the downloaded ISO. I know the one you mean. Someone uploaded the game as an ISO image (still able to extract via winrar) and it has found it's way among many torrent sites. I am not sure whether because it is an ISO something corrupt when the uploader packed it into an ISO, but regardless, that is the problem. Everyone goes for this one as it is the one with most seeders but the content is corrupt. It will show exactly the same size and number of files as a legitimate rip from the actual Euro game disc and will copy/ftp over fine, but it will not work with the modded eboot even with an original param.sfo file specifying 3.50 firmware.
So to confirm, it is that download source that is the problem. I tried another one uploaded referencing "blaze" and it 100% worked.
Before we get all of the pirate remarks, I obviously own the game as well myself and have never pirated in my life. (obviously).
The symptoms are just a black screen on boot, but the game will still show the video preview on the XMB fine when you hover over the game. Just will not boot properly. Maybe someone could compare the differences to see which part is corrupt, but frankly, there are 18000+ files so I for one can't be bothered. Use a working source is the answer.
EDIT: The game is rubbish anyway so don't worry too much! Very arcadey and mickey mouse. I mean "earning" nitrous by driving dangerously? Hmm.... not my cup of tea.
That is the conclusion I've drawn & that's why I mentioned the source.Trying to find another copy. Thanks!!!!
