Below is a brief Transformers Dark of the Moon PS3 fix guide from michaelscz:
BLES01169 EUR VERSION
For Transformers Dark of the Moon EUR (BLES01169) you just only execute this pkg: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=P4CBYWED
BLUS30709 USA VERSION
For Transformers Dark of the Moon USA (BLUS30709):
1. Replace this param.sfo: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=Q0K7BKBR
2. Execute this pkg: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=P4CBYWED
Note: for USA VERSION it is tested with Kmeaw.
You don't need the PARAM.SFO for the US version, just change the PARAM.SFO to 3.55 and let Multiman do it's magic.
Finally, another brief guide from ianrobbie, to quote:
- Downloaded BLUS30907.
- Downloaded both files above (thanks for the fix, by the way michaelscz!)
- Replaced the original PARAM.SFO with the one downloaded from above (as I said before, it's just and EU PARAM.SFO)
- Opened Multiman
- Let Multiman change the PARAM.SFO to 3.55 (Don't know if you can do it yourself)
- Once back to XMB, installed the above update .pkg
- Loaded the game!
I only got as far as the "Installing" screen before I had to switch it off. I would probably recommend transferring it to internal. It might speed up the installation. It started at 0.01%!
More PlayStation 3 News...
gee i thought these were over now.. LOL
thanks i guess
Indeed, I'm sure the day isn't far off when there won't be any more patch updates to get these games working so enjoy while we can.
with 3.55 patches for this and SSFIV-arcade today, I retain hope for a 3.55 playable Earth defence force
See in their own small way Sony still loves the pirates...
As both links to PKG files are the same BLES01169, i take it europe patch will work on usa version?
No it won't, you will need to change the Game ID in the Param.sfo to BLES01169 (Using a SFO Editor) or check if there is a USA Patch already.
EDIT - There is a US Patch but it is 3.60. So you'll need to use the EUR Patch and change the Game ID using a SFO Editor like I explained before.
