Well the patch downloaded and installed just fine, but then Red Dead would not go past the loading screen, tried all last night and this morning.
I figured they might be having networking issues at R* so I decided to wait until today and read the forums.
It was suggested to delete the game data and let it re-install. No dice... Now it gets to installing and freezes at 96%
Whether I tell it to download the patch first, or not, it still locks up at 96% of INSTALLING RED DEAD REDEMPTION....
I have tried to get it going about 20 times now, all with the same result. Deleting Game Data (513mb) does nothing.
I find it hard to believe a patch would cause my machine NOT to re-install the game from scratch, but it seems I am stuck... can't even install to play at all...
Is there any way to check the HDD for issues, or anyone else hear of this happening?
Hello HunterDadHD and thanks for your message,
We apologize for all the problems you are having. This is indeed an unusual issue and it seems like you’ve tried almost all. We’d suggest you either exchanging the disc in your retailer for a new one (it may be the disc’s fault) or as you said, renting another copy. Sorry for not being more helpful, but we think you should try that before anything else because it does seem like a disc problem since you mentioned in that forum that the other games installed correctly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Nope... still hangs at 96%... I have to press the PS button and choose quit game.
I tried every possible combination, with network, without, no media server, no LAN connection at all, with network, with patch first, without patch download...
this is driving me crazy....
shot in the dark, but you could always try going into safe mode and repairing system files or rebuilding the database. i don't think any of those things will affect any of your data (in case you'd be worried about losing something).
it's very strange that it won't let you re-install the game data.
well if he installed the patch,he has so sign in to psn,and you cant sign in without updating your ps3,so he probably does have the latest firmware, i know i do as well,and yesterday i booted up the game,played for like 5 minutes then it froze on me again,so its not my ps3 its the game that is failing,i hope Rockstar fixes this issue this week.
