never mind my previous question about finding links. i found out how it's nothing special, and i'm sure whoever found the other links used a similar method (using ethereal or other network traffic capturing tool).
----- was in the process of typing the above----
but i got my ps3 to download the full version of blast factor from my pc
it's in the process of downloading.. will report back if it plays
btw, did it all using Etereal to capture links, then replicated them on my webserver, and redirected the downloads from the sony store w/ simple dns!
edit: went to play the full version and got an error: This content can not be played on your account. :'( (not sure if it knows i didn't buy it, or it doesn't like my firmware version v1.32)
at least i figured out how to download games from pc to ps3
Hey Diverge...did you phish for the links via your PC and logging into the Sony Store on you PC?
yeah, in order to find the link you need to put another entry into simpleDNS, so it redirects the attempted downloads to your pc.. then have Ethereal on your pc and start the caputure just before you hit the download on the ps3. stop the capture, and you'll find the packet with the download link.. then create that file structure on your webserver, and drop your file in that folder (with the correct file name the link looks for). then bam... it will download.
here is a picture of what the packet looks like attached.
i'll try to make a guide when i get a chance, if i am not explaining this clear.. off to attempt to install shiftgrip.. since that supposedly will run.
proxy is working now, well im able to go online but when i try downloading anything (trailers, demos) from the store i get "an error occurred during the download operation". guess i'll wait for a tutorial
