Okay, here's the skinny. At first wasn't looking to pick it up, but my girl linked me to some videos of Vanquish in action... which along with some hilarious commentary, seemed to show it was a better game than the reviews implied. Got lucky on finding it in a nearby redbox, and ripped it to install so I can play it proper, since currently no CFW can get on to play the demo. I noticed the game had split files, making me think I would then have to move it over to the internal hard drive... right? Well, multiman 2.00.01 came out not a day later, and one of the features it pimps out is support for loading games with less than 10 split files. at a split file count of 9, I should be good to go with Vanquish... right? Right? wrong. Every attempt at playing it has just led to a black screen... and one so bad I have to force it to shut off with the power button on the ps3 itself. Can't even quit back to the XMB. I've tried both configured with and without the BD-Mirror option, as one database table said it shouldn't need it. I've tried unpatched and with the latest patch already installed. Not sure what else to try here, and it's annoying as heck. Anyone figured out how to get this game working? I might have simply just set it aside by now, but it just looks that damn cool in action. EDIT: On another note, I find that when I try to play split games, it's insisting that I can't play them unless I set the BD-emulator to Hermes in the XMMB menu. I do that, and it also states that a system restart is needed for the changes to be applied. Well, no matter how many times I restart multiman or the console, it keeps going back to the default there. And that was after installing the BDEMU file that came packaged with multiman, too. So I don't know what its problem is.
