[Answered] Uncharted 2: Error syncing models help?
Looking for a solution to this error what comes up when connecting to Uncharted 2 multiplayer that is killing me!
I have searched the web high and low, tried getting help from Sony and also the game devs but failed to even get a single response from either. I have posted all the details of the error and the things I have tried to fix it on the game devs forum. Not sure if I can link to it from here? Or I can copy the posts into here if that is more appropriate?
Basically when loading up multiplayer this error comes up every time preventing me from getting into the lobby to party up and start matches etc. Have tried every possible fix I could find but nothing seems to make any difference.
The best I can get is if I delete the game data causing a resync of all the livedata (200-300mb download). This gets me to the lobby but with the crappy matchmaking setup I can hardly get through one match before I get booted out or freeze or whatever. Then when I try to reconnect, this error every time!!
Its like the game lobby is not interfacing with the PSN properly when trying to party up with friends etc. I try joining a party and nothing happens. 3 minutes later while doing something else (starting a match) the UC2 matchmaking tries joining me to that party.
Also the status of friends and their parties is real slow to update. A friend will go offline but remain in friends list in UC2 lobby for 2-3 minutes even though they are not there...
Frustrating as hell.. Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.
Finally it's working. I am not 100% certain but suspect strongly the error was on the PSN side. I logged the problem with Sony last Friday and 5pm Monday (5 hrs ago) I was just doing a random try to get in and it livesynced a couple of times and then bingo I was in the lobby. I had confirmed my account worked on a friend's machine, but when I took my PS3 to a friend's place, same error on his internet connection. Also had some Thai friends who play UC2 respond to my question to them if they could get in. They said they couldn't either and were having similar problems/error messages coming up that I was.
So... thanks for all the ideas anyway guys. More brains on a problem are always better than just one, especially when it's just my brain. So it took Sony 10 days to fix up a PSN/UC2 server problem. Way too long I say. Although I didn't personally report it until 4 days ago, when I was certain I had tried everything on my end to fix the problem.
May I suggest to others reading if you have deleted and reinstalled both sets of game data several times over and everything else on your machine/connection/account checks out fine, get onto Sony straight away. They don't seem to be monitoring things too closely and chances are the problem is on their end - not yours.
OK back to UC2!! Happy happy joy joy...
