Video: Oblivion and Fallout 3 PC Mods Running via PS3 Hack


168w ago - Today PSBeyond.com (linked above) reports that Elders Scroll: Oblivion and Fallout 3 PC mods are running on the PlayStation 3 using a PS3 hack on both JailBroken and Custom Firmware consoles, and 950931alonso has created a video and guide of the process.

Download: Elders Scroll: Oblivion Mods on PS3 Guide / Oblivion PS3 Mods (includes Midas Spells of Aurum 0995, Shadowcreek Vineyard, Waldelf Modified Jungles Nude Spell + Female EyeCandy Body Raplacer 1.0 and Eshmes Bodies v2) / Oblivion PS3 Mods / Agiel's Oblivion Plugins / Oblivion Mod FAQs

To quote: The hacking scene is abuzz with reports that you can now run PC mods for both Elders Scroll: Oblivion and Fallout 3 on your PS3.

Anyone who has a jailbreaked PS3 can do so and we have seen evidence which proves the same. A user at one of the biggest PS3 hacking forums had this to say:

Thanks Denero, I got all these mods to work:

• The box of wonders (All weapons All ammo)
• Weight8000 (carry more items)
• No Degradation
• Skeleton key
• Speed Glasses

A video has also emerged on youtube which shows Elders Scroll Oblivion PC mods being run on the PS3.





Finally, another brief Fallout 3 guide based on THIS thread is below:

The following tutorial will teach you on how to get Fallout New Vegas Mods on PS3. To do this you need:

• A mod. I used THIS one as i knew the location of the mod as it is Doc's house.
• FALLOUT.INI from your backup of Fallout NV. You can get it to your PC via the useual ways.

1. Download your files to your pc

2. Rename the mod file something shorter for ease. I used dev1.esp

3. Open FALLOUT.INI and go to STestFile2= and enter the name of the mod e.g - STestFile2=dev1.esp

4. Search for sEssentialFileCacheListE= and go along and put " DATA/DEV1.ESP," behind one of the , already there.

5. Save FALLOUT.INI upload it back to your PS3 and put the mod file dev1.esp into your DATA folder for Fallout New Vegas.

6. If you had previously been playing Fallout New Vegas without restarting your PS3 then reload the game via OM / BM / GM

This hasn't been testing on loads of mods so you may find problems with other mods. Good luck.

did you put it in both the save data directory and backup game directory?

I know you had said already, but should I delete that whole line of data and replace it simply with:
Well if you didnt notice it was written for oblivion not fallout 3 I don't have fallout 3 for ps3 or else I would of written one for fallout 3.

I just got Oblivion GOT so I'll be trying this later and it's perfect since I've been playing all my games off my external. I'm going to try this method with Beautiful People and report my findings. If this works for Oblivion as well, I can honestly say I'll love you forever

So sorry for double posting but as I was editing my post, and it wouldn't go through.

Edit: I'm looking at the Oblivion Ini file and I found the section you're talking about but there is a whole lot of text/files that are listed there.

sEssentialFileCacheListE=DATA\OBLIVION.ESM, DATA\MUSIC\SPECIAL\TES4TITLE.MP3, DATA\OBLIVION - MISC.BSA, DATA\OBLIVION - MESHES.BSA, DATA\OBLIVION - SOUNDS.BSA, DATA\OBLIVION - STGFILES.BSA, DATA\SI - MESHES.BSA, DATA\SI - SOUNDS.BSA, DATA\SI - VOICES.BSA

I know you had said already, but should I delete that whole line of data and replace it simply with:

sEssentialFileCacheListE=DATA/SYSUTIL/*.PNG, DATA/ICON0.PNG, DATA/PIC1.PNG
sUnessentialFileCacheListE=

Honestly, I've been trying the follow the instructions in the readme and no offence to whoever wrote them, but they are half baked to say the least. The instructions kind of throw you out there with what seems to be missing steps. Never the less, they are useful and I'm grateful for that. I'm going to wing it based on what I can interpret from the readme and report back.

To everyone trying to get textures to load, you MUST be playing on a external HDD. Theres also something in the .ini* you need to edit.

Search this in the FALLOUT.INI (/PS3_GAME/USRDIR)

sEssentialFileCacheListE=
Make it into this
sEssentialFileCacheListE=DATA/SYSUTIL/*.PNG, DATA/ICON0.PNG, DATA/PIC1.PNG

or to make it easier, heres how the whole loading section should look.



Once you're done, make sure you are playing on the external HDD DELETE your gamedata, then REUPDATE. Also to get custom gun sounds, or any sound files working they have to be .mp3 files. For menu's etc they are .wav files.
