Thanks GrandpaHomer and PS3 News - I will have to see how I go with this. Being that I am on OS X this proxy program needs windows. So will have to do some stuff before I can get that working. Appreciate the help there and rep added
SwedishGojira - Not that simple. From all reports I have read you are meant to clear all game data for backups, or at least most. So say John Doe formats his hard drive to start fresh or installs a larger drive he is in a bit of trouble as he can't update, actual game disc in hand or not as there is no PSN.
I'm not going to claim I own this game, however, I could ask the same question for another game that I do own, Red Dead Redemption. It needs the update to fix the control problem. Thanks to the great help of these members I can now know that v1.04 of RDR works through that method and can go ahead trying it in BM. I was hesitant doing so for the control reasons.
well unfortunately the download manager won't install the update. It downloads, once finished i try the update again the PS3 finds the completed download and tries to install it but comes away with an error. This probably won't be fixed by a future version of the program but will hope for that anyway. thanks again for replies guys
