    1. I'll move the quoted post into the "PS3 Game Backups" forum.

    2. Have a look at these links:

    I have had GTA IV: Complete working off of external HDD for quite some time now, the trick is "BD Mirror" (only games I play off internal were 4GB+ file games, but since I'm using Hermes Payload again "it's time to cache")

    Modified files are required to play from internal.

    Follow these instructions: *The games ID has to be BLES01128 (Europe) GTA 4 Complete Edition*

    -Make sure the game is installed on your internal HDD of your ps3 first obviously

    1. Download the FIX package: http://www.mediafire.com/?c9cvqaecn10cj12 mirror: http://ps3scenefiles.com/file.php?id=1026

    2. If you have any install data or patches delete them.

    3. Enter Multiman, use the file explorer (or press select-start on the game to go to it's location in file explorer) locate the folder in which you store your backups (GAMES or GAMEZ) and inside the gta4 game folder look for the folder PS3_GAME and press O(Circle) and choose "shadow for PKG game " then say yes. and wait

    4. Now go into dev_hdd0/game and delete the folder BLES01128 that you just created (yes delete it)

    5. With Multiman (Ftp or USB) transfer and replace the following files in the correct directories :

    5.1 Replace the COMP.BIN with the modded one in this directory dev_hdd0/G/E01128/USRDIR Note: This is where I messed up the first several times as I did not notice the G folder in dev_hdd0 do not replace the COMP.BIN in the gta4 folder in your GAMES or GAMEZ directory. Also make a back up of the original, just in case.

    5.2 Go to your GAMES or GAMEZ directory where you have the game folder at and replace the EBOOT.BIN with the modded one(make a copy of the original, just in case).

    6. Load the game with Multiman or Other manager

    7. If it doesn't work try the FIX PERMISSIONS in Multiman
