    So I'm a Playstation Plus subscriber. Since I got PSNLover working, I decided to log onto my plus account, go to previous downloads (on my psp) and download the free minis I got this month (Age of Zombies and Fieldrunners.)

    They downloaded and installed fine, but when I try to play them, it says that the game could not be launched or something like that.

    I tried all the drivers (sony, original, m33) and none work.

    Any suggestions? I'd really like to be able to play these minis, and all of the free minis that I'll be receiving over the next 14 months.

    I think you have to be on prometheus for them to work. Are you on it?

    I don't think PSN downloaded games work on a CFW PSP.

    They're only Minis anyway. There was an article around here a few days ago about how only 1.7% of PSP owners actually buy Minis, so you can't be missing out on much. You can't even say 'well, they were free' 'cause you've got custom firmware, everything's free.

    Yes, they can -- you need to activate your PSP on PSN with OFW first. Then you can play all of your legit purchases on whatever CFW you feel like.

    Try disabling your GAME plugins. Certain plugins like cfw folder blocker and pspetext are incompatible with minis.

    Or you can patch the minis and run them as .ISO files... .CSO if you're on M33, and so inclined. And yea, Field Runners is all kinds of win. (if you like tower defense)

    Err... yes I'm on prometheus 5.50

    The only plugin I'm using right now is PSNLover. Ironically, you need to be logged into a PSN account to play downloaded stuff. So if I disable it, I won't be able to play it.

    Any better suggestions?

    I think your only option is to pirate them, as silly as that sounds...

    most mini's are 5.50/5.55 so you need to decrypt the eboot.
    also, if your on m33 use edecrypt's patch function to kill the version check.

    i'm on m33 and run all the mini's just fine after decrypt&patch.

    also, believe it or not, mini's often have a firmware update bundled with them.
    it's usually much bigger than the game.

    i took lock&chase from about 100meg to 1.6 ish by ripping the update and boot.bin and compressing to cso level1 [​IMG]
