25w ago - Following up on their previous releases, today PlayStation 3 scene group DUPLEX has released Far Cry 3 alongside some PS3 CFW 3.55 experimental test fixes below.
Far Cry 3 players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island cut off from civilization. In this savage paradise where lawlessness and violence are the only sure thing, players will dictate when, where and how the events of the game unfold.
Digital distribution of games is nothing new anymore. It's common in the PC Games scene for years already.And it doesn't really matter where you bought a game - online or in a physical store. The game will remain the same. So we decided not to tag this release with PSN or anything else, even though it's in a pkg format. To make it easier for those who use fat32 devices with their consoles, we made 2 conventient packages for you as one pkg would have been too big.
1) install duplex-far.cry.3-install.part1.pkg
2) install duplex-far.cry.3-install.part2.pkg
3) install duplex-far.cry.3.crack.pkg
4) play from xmb!
From DEFAULTDNB: Just replace the files (make sure to back up your original files) in:
VIVA LA KMEAW 3.55 ELITE CLUB
Working: Trophies + bare basic gameplay
Not working: FMV + mini map + saving (blinks forever, but no hdd activity makes me think its not writing anything anywhere)
Baffling: No sense of what the hell to do, just wonder around and try find a mission or something!?
What else: In the first area jump the crates to "escape" the shonky graphics.
More: I think if SDATS are decrypted this might well fully work, testing SDATS yielded same borked results
Note: Thus far, the fix is reported to be partially working on 3.55 Kmeaw and Waninkoko 2 PS3 CFW, however, it appears a proper fix is still needed as saving locks the game up (and auto save will flash on screen forever) according to member feedback. As always, feel free to share your results in our ongoing thread.
