PS3 Games install twice?
If i copy a game with FTP to ps3 will it install the game twice?
some games requires gamedata to be installed, not all.
read somewhere you could remove the old files etc, not sure what/where, but as i said not all games will install gamedata
In principle - for the games with mandatory hard disk install - yes. From the PS3's point of the view is still runs from "BD" so it will intall it again. The only exception would be for the games with optional hard drive install where you'd simply choose not to install it.
Games with mandatory HDD installs will still make you install again to HDD - YES
The below example may work.
- Backuo Games
- Let game install extra HDD files
- Find the extra HDD files
- Look at the original backup and delete the part that matches your extra HDD files
This may work, but if you ever need to reinstall the extra HDD files again, and those files are not there, it will probably give you an error and close the game.
