Skyrim Update Question
Currently installed is the original release of Skyrim on CFW 3.55. THis game has been played for many many hours and the character is ranked quite high. I see there are updates from S0ny available with EBOOT patches available. How can one install the updates without loosing the character and saved games?
You will not lose anything, just install the patch - then install the fix over the patch. And your done.
It does not mess with your save file at all.
Great! Thanks! Say, is there a good way to backup the saved games (and character) just in case?
You can go to your save data part on the xmb screen in your game column go to the skyrim save data and copy it to your usb drive
You can copy you saved data (which includes your character) to a flash drive or external flash drive. Just go to your save games in the XMB, find the skyrim save data file(s) press triangle and copy to the usb drive. You can do the same to copy it back if you ever ruin a save.
An alternative is to go into MM and find your profile, which contains all saves and trophies and copy that directory and back it up (more technical) and then you can copy it back into your profile to restore. (You may need to rebuild database from recovery menu after) This is what I use to backup trophies (when I couldn't sync to sony due to no PSN)
The third option which is overkill would be to backup the entire ps3 to an external drive from the xmb.
