How to download and install PS3 games from NGR
A computer (ill be using windows 7 for this example but pretty much anything will work)
USB memory stick of 8GB or larger
Please login or register to see this link. already installed on your ps3
Please login or register to see this link. (or a FTP client of your choosing but i would highly recommend FilaZilla)
WinRAR 5.21 / 7-Zip 15.12 or newer (I'll be using WinRAR when we get up to that bit)
So a few extra things befoul we start. I'm going to be going over this from a very basic point of view so some more advanced users may not get much out of this post.
This is also not the best way of doing some of this but it is the most simplest.
Also there are two main formats for game dump, "Folder" and ".PKG" and I will be going over both of them but .PKG will be first so if you do need to install multiMAN you can use that as a guide.
Sadly I wasn't able to work out how to take screenshots of the PS3's XMB without a capture card and I spent like 2 days trying to at some point i'm just going to have to wright this thing and leave out a few screenshots but I will do my best to explain it all
[Install a .PKG game via USB]
First of we are going to need to take your USB stick and plug it into your computer, Then go to "Computer" or "This PC" on your computer
Then right click on your USB stick and go to Properties, we want to make sure our USB stick is formatted to FAT32 to the PS3 can read it and has enough space for the PKG we want to install
If your USB isn't formatted properly there is meant to be a format button at the bottom but its missing on my computer O.o? but my computer is broken soo yeah moving on
We need a .PKG game to install so lets download Jet Set Radio from here
When you have that downloaded you should just have a PKG file now, you want to copy that PKG file over to the root of the USB stick like this
It can not be in any folders or anything otherwise the PS3 wont be able to find it
Once Windows or whatever OS you using has done coping that you can remove your USB stick from you computer and put it into a free USB port on your PS3. Any will do but the one on the far right is technically best but it really doesn't matter providing you don't have have other USB sticks already in your PS3
Now you want to navigate to the Game Section and then to ★Install Package Files and we should see our NPEB00924-[Jet Set Radio].pkg file there
On ReBug CFWs only: (you can skip ahead if you can see the pkg alredy)
In the Game section you want to select ★Package Manager instead then select ★Install Package Files and then select Standard and we should see our pkg file
Now you can see the NPEB00924-[Jet Set Radio].pkg file there you can simple select it and a install progress bar will appear. Now we just wait till the PS3 has finished installing our PKG file and when the install has finished you can simple just press back.
Now we should be back at the Game section and you should see Jet Set Radio at the top there someone and you can run and play it now just like any other legit PSN game you would of downloaded
[Installing a Folder game FTP]
For this tutorial we are going to use @Yukiko's copy of CoD Black Ops, hope you don't mind senpai
So on Yukiko's thread you want to scroll down to Download: and unhide the hidden content then, download BOTH parts from Mega
Once you have both parts download into the same place on your computer, right click on the part1.rar go to WinRAR and then Extract to Call_of_Duty.....\
What we are doing here is extracting both parts to one single folder. As Yukiko has pack this properly you could just pick Extract Here to save our self's from folder inception but most people don't and it takes to long to check every time so I always do the Extract to folder thing out of habit
At this point a password prompt will appear, Now go back to Yukiko's thread and find the Password: section and copy it into the Enter password box in WinRAR and then press OK
If you get a "The specified password is incorrect." error try unpacking it again and double checking the password to make sure there isn't a space in front of it.
And now we wait awhile for this to unpack...
Once WinRAR has done it's thing that window will close and you will be lift with a "Call_of_Duty_Black_Ops_READNFO_JPN_JB_PS3-Caravan" folder, enter that folder and you will find a
"BLJM60287-[Call of Duty Black Ops Dubbed JAP]" folder and a "cvn-codbofjb.nfo" file. That nfo file is the ReadMe so for now we just want to focus on the new folder we have
Back over on the PS3 boot up multiMAN
Then go over to settings and select System Information
Note down your IP Address we are going to need it for later. If you don't see a IP Address there you will have make sure your PS3 is connect to your local network
Now go down to FTP Service and set it to Enable (No Timeout) and reboot multiMAN for good measure the role back over to your computer and boot up FileZilla
In the Host: text box at the top of FileZilla you want to enter your IP Address of your PS3 and then click Quickconnect and the the rest of the info will be auto filled out for you
Now on the Remote site: side of FileZilla (which is your PS3 BTW) you want to navigate to dev_hdd0
Then simple Drag'n'Drop the "BLJM60287-[Call of Duty Black Ops Dubbed JAP]" folder to the GAMES folder Not the game folder If you don't have a GAMES folder for some reason you can make a new one by right clicking on dev_hdd0 at the top and click Create director and then type GAMES like this
The game folder is where the ps3 stors your legit pkg installed games the GAMES folder is where all the folder games and ISOs(i think) are stored onto your ps3
Ok so after you have Drag'n'Droped your CoD folder to your GAMES folder and FileZilla copys all the files have successful transferred across to the PS3 we can close FileZilla and go back to the PS3
Now you Should still have multiMAN open so go across to the Game section and scroll to the top and select Refresh
After the little arrows have finished spinning around your games list will re-render
Now when you scroll through your games list you should see a Call of Duty®: Black Ops game has now be installed so you can select it to load the game
Your PS3 will make a beep and verify some data and the kick you back to the PS3s XMB main menu this is normal
Scroll up in your game list and near the top you should now see a blu-ray has been magically inserted into your PS3 if you go to that blu-ray it will now say Call of Duty®: Black Ops and you can now run the game just as you would if you had a legit blu-ray inserted into your PS3
And with that I hope i covered everything, kinda annoying i couldn't screenshot my PS3 and this took way longer to make then it should of but yeah hope it helps you and feel free to leave a comment if you have any issues
