To quote: Just replace the EBOOT & PARAM.SFO files in the game with the ones included below... if Multiman asks to patch the SFO, allow it to do so.
After loading the calibration screen just press start on the black screen and it will load... just press start once you get a black screen.
To fix black screens and movies missing, just rename the folder movie_e to movie... That's all
Confirmed working via external PS3 HDD in multiMAN PlayStation 3 Game Backup Manager by pressing SELECT+X.
