All of listed games have updates that you can download via psnstuff or PS3 Game Updater. They fail for reasons like:

> Data Install error - Something about damaged disk.
> Back to XMB - Logos pop or not then goes straight back to XMB.
> Black screen - Some made the PS3 crash some can still show XMB when Home Button is pressed.
> Stuck at loading
> Conversion Error - KDW CFW2OFW v1.2 Beta did not complete the convert

There will be more games to come after I'm done doing a DTU for the next batch of games I'm testing. I'm just trying to look for an optimal step-by-step system to troubleshoot the games since some of them here do work for others but I wonder why I'm having issues with them.

Things to know:

> All games listed have available patches to download.
> My games are rips which means I only kept the english files if the game contains multi-languages.
> Updates use are always the first patch if there are multiples
> 100% no files were split during the whole process

Some of the troubleshooting I came up with:
  1. Search forums about game - Check if there's chatter about the game. This solved my issues with CoD Ghosts & Beyond Two Souls
  2. Test source game - All ISO in my case just to check if the game works or not.
  3. Check pkg updates - Encountered updates that was not downloaded 100% (also check if it's the 1st patch available.
  4. Convert using Use PS3GameConvert_v0.91 (or v0.7) - Posts mentions that this can fix games like RE6 and RER2 saving issues
  5. Check convert folders if ID is correct - Reading comments show the output folders give out the wrong ID.
  6. Rename .sdat to .SDAT - Guides indicate it matters. - Too many sdat? mass rename guide below.
  7. Use untouched dumps - Removing other region languages could affect the success of a conversion? You can remove language files to save space and it won't affect the conversion of the game. You can use aldo's tools or manually do it yourself. Be extra careful of what you remove and make sure to keep a backup of the files and only delete them when you made sure that your game works.
  8. NEVER use DUPLEX release games. They have a high chance of not working for some reason.
If anyone can suggest how to troubleshoot games that are not working please leave a comment and I would greatly appreciate if someone could comment a reasonable order of how to do things.

PS: Downloading updates via psnstuff seems to be more stable vs PS3 Game Updater.

Call of Duty Ghosts [BLUS31270] by @sandeeprockon

    • Update - UP0002-BLUS31270_00-CALLDUTYGHOSTTU1-A0116-V0100-PE_fw4.40.pkg
  • How to fix:
  1. Create BLUS31270 folder and copy/paste USRDIR from Game - Call of Duty Ghosts [BLUS31270] - set this aside for now.
  2. Convert the Game - Call of Duty Ghosts [BLUS31270] & Update using PS3GameConvert_v0.9
  3. When conversion is complete you should now have NPUB31270. Go to NPUB31270/USRDIR and delete everything EXCEPT eboot.bin
  4. When conversion is complete you should now ALSO have BLUS31270. Copy all folder contents of BLUS31270 (converted) into the BLUS31270 (from step 1) and replace/overwrite all when asked.
  5. Copy BLUS31270 (from step 1) and NPUB31270 into your CFW PS3, DTU to OFW PS3 and it should work.
