Hope someone can help me here, I'm an PC player normally and enjoyed the recent Uncharted PC release so I recently bought a PS3 slim so I can play the other Uncharted games 1,2,& 3 and other top games such as Red Dead one, the last of us etc. I'm in my 70's and had to learn to use a controller to play the PS3!

Anyway I've been playing Uncharted 2 and it's a really good game and all went well till I reached the start of the Monastery level where the game seemingly crashed. Now it won't load and I just get the screen with spinning dagger. Unfortunately after all the save slots were filled I just kept overwriting so the only save that loads is way back. Also all of the chapters I already played have gone from the list except chapter one.

I downloaded a save from here but it doesn't show up in the USB when inserted in the console so I must be doing something wrong or the save is the wrong region?. I'm in the UK so need a fully patched save and instructions to make sure I get it right!

Perhaps you could contact the user who uploaded the save directly?

Hi buddy, just to clarify,,,,

Your PS3 is on Official Firmware I take it (Not jailbroken)?

If so....

Which save did you download?

IF You're from the UK, would be best to use BLES
(BLUS can be re-regioned to BLES by using a program)

When you're using someone else's save, you need to use a Save Resigner,
there is one called KG's Save Resigner, which is best for the Uncharted 2 and 3 saves

KG's Save Resigner Download:
mediafire.com/download/6zi8vodqdr..._Setup.rar

Virus Scanned:
virustotal.com/gui/file/bc5d39ab1.../detection

I haven't done anything with the PS3 for about 2 years now,
so I'll be rusty, but I will help you as much as I can


This tutorial helped me 5+ years ago

Many thanks for replies and advice,
I think my PS3 is probably official firmware, the previous owner had deleted all their content. Each game I have tried so far all downloaded patches first so maybe that would confirm it. I'll take a look at those videos and download save resigner.

I tried two different saves from here, the two bottom left on the Uncharted 2 list submitted by Frog & Fth. With PC you can get multiple saves for each level but the PS3 ones all seem to be similar with 100% completion with all treasures etc. Only one mentions the region as US but maybe most of them are?

I was wondering that if I get one to work I'm not sure how I can replay from the start of the Monastery level which was where the game stalled. I guess the only way would be to play it from the list of chapters that would presumably appear on a 100% completion?

I have now tried Uncharted one and that locked up right after an auto save following a long battle with multiple enemies. I played the level again from my own save and it locked up again fairly near the same spot. I'm wondering if the disks are the problem.

Red Dead R 1 was brand new and that plays for hours with no problems so it doesn't sound like the console is faulty, just well played disks probably. The console never gets hot either.

regards
Vic

Seems like the game discs are the problem, especially if they're locking up around the same areas

If you have any cleaning alcohol (for music CDs and Music Cassettes), you can use some on the game discs with a soft cloth

Yeah, if I recall, the savesets I have are for the likes of treasures and things like weapons and fighting

But always nice to have a saveset collection of saves for the games you play from to finish, then use the saves to cleanup

It apparently was dirty disks although they looked o.k I cleaned the disk with Isopropyl for Uncharted one and it loaded and ran perfectly, I wish I'd thought of that right at the start as although I removed finger prints it wasn't enough.

Now I just need to get Uncharted two running with a downloaded savegame and fathom out the resigner

Strangely enough the console allows me to upload savegames without using resigner, it gives a warning that if using another accounts saves then all treasures and achievements won't transfer to my account. I have no interest in that part of gaming so not bothered.

So when I overwrite the save and start the game it loads me on one of the really early levels called desperate times.

There is no option to load another save slot, and annoyingly only one chapter is available - the first one, I was hoping all the chapters would be there so I can just play them in sequence from the Monastery.

It shows I now have 100% of all of the treasures and achievements etc.

So I wonder now why that particular desperate times level loaded and if I try other downloaded saves I might end up with one nearer the end of the game where I can just replay a couple of levels to reach the monastery level.

Yes, that's right

IF you want the trophies of the game, the save resigner is needed for U2 and U3

If you transfer and load save(s), it will state something like "Trophy cannot be earned" if save resigner is not used


With this save from Fifth, it should give you chapter select....
Downloads/id=5459/uncharted-2-amo...-save.html

IF the save is 100% completed (played to the end), there should be a "Chapters" in the main menu


For using saves to be on the monastery level....
79 Treasures save will have you near the end of it
youtu.be/AHm_49I6rzM?t=356
(79 treasures should already be collected on the save - NOT Tested by me)

Hello CalicoReidso,

thanks for the links but not having any luck, the save from Fifth is the one I seemingly used before, either that or they are all using the same save.
I installed it and got all the warnings about another users file etc, selected overwrite all and I'm getting the same Desperate times level and still only one Chapter but with all the treasures etc.

The 79 treasures link sounds promising but I can't fathom out how to activate the zip, I've shared it on to my Google drive but clicking it goes back to what you see when you first click the link you posted which is - USR-DATA so I can't fathom out how to get the actual zip file to open

When you click on my googledrive link....

You will then download the zip file

extract it with either winzip, winrar or 7zip
