sooooo did anyone notice that you have to download the maps "for free" off $onys servers in order to pplay multy player?? wtf!!?? anyway around this?? what the hell??? everything else used to work last time fckpsn was up n running and now all I can do is spec ops???
weird.. or did I install something wrong or is it a $ony tactic?...
Thank you propjoe!!!
I had a lot of trouble getting online and so I wanted to post how I got it to work.
These are the files I am using, you may have to search for them to get them. I got them all from ps3news, except the game I believe:
Call Of Duty MW3-BLUS30838.Patch.v1.19.v1.20.and.v1.21.Install.and. Crack.CFW.3.41-3.55-PS3JB
Call.Of.Duty.Modern.Warfare.3.EBOOT.PATCH.123.USA. PS3-N0DRM - n0drm-codmw3123us.rar
So my game folder is on my external drive. After that I just put the combo 1.19 thru 1.21 pkg, the 1.22 pgk, and the 1.23 pkg updates on another USB drive. I deleted all my old game data and installed each of the pkgs. After that I used the integrated multiman file manager tool and copied the n0drm 1.23 EBOOT patch files to the /dev_hdd0/game/BLUS30838 directory. Even the PARAM.SFO from it, I kept reading things about editing the PARAM.SFO cause it was the wrong version or something. After these steps, it loaded up the game just fine. No error to update or anything.
The current problem I have now is that if I exit the game to the XMB or reboot the ps3, the next time i go to load it up it asks for the 4.0 required to load update and wont let me boot the game. I have install the latest 1.23 update fix pkg and then the eboot fix to get it to work. Anyone know what the problem may be to fix this?
so just to clarify after you did all this you got the Multi-player maps working AS WELL??
Yes i don't have a problem with the multiplayer maps. It loads the game up and lets me go straight to multiplayer. Been playing about 30 matches now and not a problem with any of the maps. Not sure what release you have, if its the BLUS30838 you may just wanna try the update pkgs and the 1.23 eboot fix.
thank you bro.. ugh man i've been messing w/ this all freakn night ha! its all good... thanks again! +rep
kalaner It may have been this order instead:
PS3: Delete all game-data from mw3
PS3: I installed the fix-bundle of 1.19-1.20-1.21 (100MB) [the ones you supplied worked]
PC: then I downloaded the originalpatches 1.22 and 1.23 for MY version: bles01431 (you do yours ofc) [still used yours]
PC: Extracted both, copied 1.23 over 1.22 (overwrite all files). [used ps3 tools]
PC: Extract the new nodrm 1.23 fix and copy &replace to the folder from above (EXCEPT PARAM.SFO) [only 3 files]
PC: Edit the PARAM.SFO (which would be the one from 1.23-original) to set FW-ver to 3.40 ->save/replace [i did 3.40 and worked fine for me]
Then copy all files over to your ps3 to dev_hdd0/game/BLES01431 (you do your ID ofc)
PS3: Mount game(for online FckPSN is needed ofc)
PS3: installed mw3 patch v103 (zombiekillah) [it gave me an error and wouldn't boot correctly after mount]
PS3: launch game
djluiluv As for the multiplayer maps, that's the current problem I'm having now. When I attempt to access multiplayer, it says I need to download the free maps. It redirects me to the PSN store. I then attempt to download a free DLC (i.e. terminal map) and keep getting the "error occurred during install operation 80029780" error. After doing research, I came across this link: nextgenupdate.com/forums/playstation-3-exploits-hacks/print-593497-how-fix-error-80029780-a.html
This error occurs when you try to download something from PSN on 3.55 Cfw Ps3 using FckPSN
Also can occur from other things >:<
Just change the email on the 3.55 Ps3 in the XMB
Turn restart your ps3 and then it should work!
Let me know if it worked for you. It did for me !
you!!! N0DRM Yoouu!!! Come here you!!! rep!
