So, I followed the directions given to me by a friend for installing pkg's larger than 4gigs. I put the split files on the external drive, I selected "install package files" in multiman, i selected the game, i waited until it finished, and then clicked install, Multiman then crashed to the ps3 menu. I find that the space the game should be taking up is in fact being taken up on the drive, but the game is not installed, and there are no new files written to the internal drive that I can find. I am very confused as to what is going on.
EDIT: I am now even more confused. After deleting the part files from my external drive, the missing space came back??? I am so confused.

The split files are most likely why you are seeing space being taken up. Id just say format the external hdd to NTFS and avoid the need to split it and move your game over. I never messed with ISO's and Ive only used multiman. Is it just a ps4 game folder and a certain file is larger than 4gb's?

    Right now I'm re-calibrating the laser for my SCPH-1002

    As many of the earlier models are prone to failure

    The eBay listing said that it won't read discs, but it actually does although FMV is laggy as well as CDDA. So it most definitely needs re-calibrating.

    I wish I could get things from ebay, just sit there and spend tonnes of money

    Why it took so long is because I've been on Discord throughout my life, but have met a lot of toxic people on there and was always treated a lot like shit.

    @cearp,
    Thank you so much! :)

    @DinohScene,
    I know right. I did originally have an account here on GBATemp back in 2021, hardly ever used it so I ended up deleting it.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Reason was because of Discord, was so attached to it that it affected my mental health really bad.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    I'm much better and I am so happy to be with this community.
