If DISE is stuck trying to update, run this command in Command Prompt.

Easier modding for PS3

I've written and uploaded a simple tool and short guide that aims to make it really easy for people to mod DI saves. Please note that it doesn't magically fix the issues we're having.

  1. It may not fix the issues we're having Steffen but it does make modding a whole lot easier for everyone. Now that I'm familiar with using command prompt once again thanks to your help. It's a great tool and I'm glad you made it, big help!

    1. Yes, you're correct. The issue is still getting it working on the PS3. Working on finding a solution, though. :)

    2. Yes we sure are Steffen ; ) and it's just a matter of time and extra research and we'll have it working eventually.

    3. Hey Patrick I think you'll find that we're all stuck on that final step which is getting the game to load our updated save properly, we'll solve it eventually.

  3. my save loaded perfectly and it also let it me play it,but the weapons that i put in didnt show up, but i know sooner or later we are going to find the solution and this did make it a whole lot easier to mod :)

    1. Great we're glad you can at least get your game to load your save, which is a good thing. The only thing we need to work on now is how to get the save updated after modding and readable so the game loads it. We will crack this safe soon, we're not giving up on this. Me or Steffen or someone will get it working ; )

  4. I'm giving the testing a rest for now but I will carry on with more tests tomorrow after work ; )

  6. Last night I went through several different things for this to work.
    I started with the easier things first.

    -This was tried on a none modded console.-

    Here is a small list of what I've tried:

    Software - What I did - How it turns out
    ___________________________________________________________________
    di-save-helper-ps3-rev2 - helper p & f - WORKED
    DISE - Open and Save (no changes to the file) - WORKED
    DISE - Reset skill points - WORKED -- No change
    DISE - sync all levels - WORKED -- No change
    DISE - Removed all inventory - WORKED -- No change
    DISE - added Zed's Demise (Inv & Stor) - WORKED -- No change
    DISE - Added Legendary Pistol (Inv only) - WORKED -- No change
    DISE - From 2x - 50x Stingray Tail - WORKED -- No change
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    Key
    ___
    WORKED = The save file loads in the game.
    No change = The file loads but there is no change in-game. As in, whatever was altered isn't visible.

  7. I Used di-save-helper-ps3-rev2 with p Command, working fine.
    Open my PS3 Save into DISE, everything fine.

    Added some Items and Weapons.
    Saved, and used di-save-helper-ps3-rev2 with f Command.
    Copy it back to PS3, Save wont showed up in Main Menu (Continue)

    After that i'll used GameGenie used QuickMode for Max Money, copied it back to my PS3, and look there, you can Continue with your Modded Save, with the Items from DISE, but Unbreakable isnt working for PS3, one hit at Monsters and the Weapon is broken.

    You have to Repeat that everytime...

    1) di-save-helper-ps3-rev2 p
    2) Open DISE and PS3 Save
    3) Mod it and Save
    4) Use GameGenie QuickMode (MaxMoney) , wait until its Done
    5) Copy back to PS3
    6) Profit
