I think you have got to have disc in drive for it to work (I had black screen until I put a disc in).
people getting black screens... do you have a bluray disc in drive ?
EDIT: aww bigshon beat me to it.
Yes sir disc is in. Tried the tutorial and suggestions to the T.
Black screen here as well. Disc in.
Figured out where I went wrong, as discussed on the previous page.. eboot goes in the folder created by the patch, not the original folder. herp derp.
i'm getting a prompt to update... i did everything right though
there's some file you have to delete, search through this thread and you'll find it. It's something like disc or dsk or something. It prevents the updating thing from popping up.
I bet after you do this it will work.
HERE it is, as on previous page: PS3_DISC.SFB
nice, i tried and it worked great!
1: Get single player working
2: Copy the EBOOT.BIN at GAMEZ/BLES01031/USRDIR and rename it t5_ps3f.self.
3: Remove the t5mp_ps3f.self from HDD/GAME/BLES01031/USRDIR
So at the end it should look like:
GAMEZ/BLES01031/PS3_GAME/USRDIR has EBOOT.BIN, t5_ps3f.self (copy of EBOOT.BIN renamed) and t5mp_ps3f.self
/DEV_HDD0/GAME/BLES01031/USRDIR has EBOOT.BIN only
Enjoy your multiplayer on X Link Kai!
also, the t5_ps3 file that i deleted and replaced with the EBOOT.BIN in the /GAMEZ/BLES01031/PS3_GAME/USRDIR was already the exact same size in bytes as the EBOOT.BIN, but i copied and renamed anyways.
on a side note, the pack at the beginning of the thread comes with a t5_ps3f.self and t5mp_ps3f.self, both being very small, 10-11mb, compared to the 50+mb EBOOT.BIN in the /GAMEZ/ dir that i renamed to t5.
i'm just curious what purpose those two files served, since it would seem they should be used for something, since they were put into the pack to download in the first post. any ideas?
Are you using Hermes V4b payload?
After you edit the metadata did you reboot the console?
If you didn't reboot after the metadata edit then go and check your params and the metadata again, reboot the console and then try.
Also, make sure you are using the correct update for the version of blackops you have backed up.
