How to make both the US/EUR work on external HDD by extracting the large +4GB psarc files?
We are currently working on this. We have a strong belief that it might not be able to, since it has over 300,000 thousand files and this causes External HDDs to choke up or fail when trying to fetch files it needs during game play.. but we are still working on it.. so read like the last pages in this thread to catch up.
Metal Gear Solid HD has 2 4GB+ PSARC files. Has anyone tried to extract them using psarc.exe so it can be played from external? I haven't had a chance to try it yet because the drive it's sitting on is currently being used for a pain in the ass torrent. I don't have enough space at the moment to extract it, then either transfer the game to my FAT32 drive or convert my NTFS external to FAT32 so I can test it
