    The Oclockvita plugin is not working with my Asia/English copy of Resident Evil Revelations 2. I used the Game ID that can be found on the case and verified that it was correct online, yet configuring Taihen to run the plugin with the game does not work. I have only had success when setting Oclockvita to run with all applications. Unfortunately, this causes many homebrew applications to fail to open.

    Is there a way to know which regional Game ID will work with Oclockvita, and if so, how might I find them? Has anyone else experienced a similar problem with other games while using this plugin?

    Usually if you want a title id, open vita shell and go to UX0:>apps. That should be where all the software installed on the memory card is, all the folders are title ids for each game (VITA ONLY) So as long as you know what the title id for the game is, that how you find out.

    All games are using 4 letter follow by 5 digit numbers. XXXX00000
    PCSE > E= USA

    If you need to know what game is the one you looking for. On the home menu open the app properties by pressing triangle on the game, and read the file size. Then find the folder that match the file size. That should be the game, you can also search the game's folder for more clues if you still want to be sure.

    I don't think that's the case for this particular game. I have the Asia release of this game, with the ID VLAS38092, yet when I put that in the configuration file, it doesn't launch within the game. I also see no such folder with the same ID in the app directory; however I do see a folder with the ID PCSH00187 with data from Resident Evil Revelations 2. Upon testing that ID, using it for the configuration, I see that this particular ID works.

    Comparing the installation size in the LiveArea to the folder size didn't work, as the numbers didn't match up, but luckily, I knew the date at which I first loaded up the game, so sorting by date led to me finding the correct folder and ID. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Then is probably not the one you think it is. Look for a folder that has the title id that matches the ones on the image.

    It's definitely the right one, as the others are PSN only, and I definitely don't have the Japanese-only version of the game. A little odd that the ID printed on the product is different than the one that the handheld acknowledges, but I managed to find it. I just hope this isn't the case for too many games.

    That's actually not the best idea, as it tends to make homebrew malfunction or flat-out not start. Having to reset and redo configurations is not fun.

    If it crashes homebrew, just exempt them using "*!HOMEBREWID". I've blocked all of my homebrew and haven't had any problems there
