checksum and saves
« on: 2012-01-25 13:30:40 »
ok so i downloaded black chocobo and i wanted to just make my save file have clouds final omnislash attack.. but when i went to save the file then said "it didnt have the updated checksum and wont play on psp". i was wondering is there a way to fix this so i can play it on my psp? also i was wondering if since i cant do the gamesave tweek, someone else can get my save file and do it for me and give it back. i would rather want to know how to fix the whole checksum but at this moment anything is good enough

long story short. the psp and ps3 use an unknown method to "sign" the saves you export. when you try to reimport them unless they are signed correctly the system will not allow you to copy them.the method and keys used to create these are currently unknown. there are a few workarounds please read the FAQ on the project page for info on them.i should prolly reword that box to say signed in place of checksum. prehaps add a link to the FAQ in the message.

i think they are talking about signing saves for ps3 games. the save for a psx game on the ps3 is not the same as a "native" ps3 save. it might work but i don't expect it to. if you want to get one and try it let me know how it works out.
