@Zhar Chances are they won't do anything. Sony can't possibly ban/penalize users because they decided to distribute a beta game on an unsecured server and then require no authentication at all to log in. For all they know, those who used the proxy method had a friend in the beta that came over, downloaded the game, and installed it on their friend's console. There's literally no way to tell the difference.
Ok, well thats good to know, just wanted to make shure I didn't do something I would seriously regret later
Can anyone offer suggestions as to what might be going wrong, or perhaps an alternative method. I've followed Tardy's guide and thus far it will not download the beta for me, unless I am doing something wrong that I am not aware of.
One thing I am not totally sure of is the IP address to enter into PS3 Proxy, I currently have my PC's IP address entered there, which is the only way anything works so I assume it must be correct. (the other proxy program that gives you the address automatically does not run for me, I get a winsock related error when trying to run it)
PS3/PC connected to router via wired connection.
PS3 proxy set to my PC IP
PS3 can access the PS Store
PC can access the internet.
NTSC PS3 (Canada)
Basically I've done everything the guide said, then when I go to the PS3 and begin the download of F@H it sits at "Please wait..." for several minutes before giving me an error (80710723). I think I must be doing something incorrectly. Everything seems to be setup right though because if I do not put any URLs in the 'replace files' it begins the F@H download immediately.
