Let me start off by saying that I know that with the Hermes v3 payload and Open Manager 1.13 SFIV works. The thing is I'm using a PS3key so when I load the game the controls don't work. I tried turning on patched mode in Open Manager 1.13 and 1.16 and I get an error saying the the SFIV eboot.bin is not found. I know this is a problem for some games, F1, NBA 2k11, and SFIV. Is there anything I can do or do I just have to wait for the PS3key guys to update their firmware?
You need to ftp the game with the open manager in patched mode to fix the permissions. Delete the game data and the back up from the hard drive and do the following:
1) Start open manager, go in patch mode and exit.
2) Start ftp server and transfer the game.
3) play the game in patched mode.
