Thanks for the speedy reply PS3GAMER20111. The thing is, there's no file of the same kind to replace it with...does this mean, i just have to add that file under USRDIR like normally and am done? Is that right?
Simply starting a new game won't work. You have to delete not only the Save Data, but also the Game Data, NOT the one that has the dlc and patch in, but the one that's like BLES01269000001 or something. Only then you can try creating a new game. That's the only way that worked for me.
