Hello

I am trying to run Hexen and Heretic on my Playstation 3 Fat (CECHA01) and when I try to start the homebrew after installing it (no problems there) I get an error 8001017.

I am running 4.82 Rebug

Here it is: https://www.brewology.com/downloads/download.php?id=12337&mcid=4

I suspect the homebrew is made for older custom firmwares and needs to be updated or patched to work on 4.82.

Anyone can help me out with that? I have been searching for solutions for an hour and I am about to give up but I absolutely love these older games and really want them to work.

Thanks very much in advance

So it's a pkg file?
Do you have the .rap file for it?
No unfortunately not, as I understood these .rap files are for retail psn games that need unlocking via psnpatch or ReactPSN

Since this is a homebrew by an indie developer there is no .rap file for it. But it also came as a folder with an eboot.bin as content and I read that back in the day people used openmanager to install this which seems to be yet another outdated homebrew

If I simply drag the homebrew folder in my game folder on my ps3 dev/hdd0 internal disc nothing happens

Again sorry for my noobish questions, I joined the game late by buying a BC 60gb CECHA01, mainly to play older ps2 games

anyone? I am still struggling to get this to run

there is the sourcecode included along with a makefile and a .bat to compile it but I am afraid I am not knowledgable enough on that field and also I am missing the compiling tools

Would be amazing if someone could compile this again for the current ps3 cfw

it may need to be updated beyond a simple resigning. did you try resigning it? true ancestor can do that for you.
Yes I tried ESSE Resigner, True Ancestor and Aldostools.

All gave errors and scetools crashes when trying to decrypt the eboot.bin

I am really trying to get it to run on my own but I am only ending up in deadends :(

I just tried to decrypt the EBOOT. there appears to be something wrong with it, so there may be nothing that you can do.

I tried both. scetool doesn't crash for me, but it says, "can't decrypt header." I tried looking in scetool gui, and something doesn't look right with the information I'm receiving.
