TiedemannI'm still waiting for the day I can turn off those damn notifications though, both in-game and when starting the client.

But... you can!?

I'm talking about achievements and inventory popups, not friends stuff.

So you want some and hide others?

I don't want any of it. It's distracting, looks out of place, sometimes cover UI elements, sometimes makes the game have a hickup on some machines etc.

All the games I've played have had progress, unlocks and all other stuff in-game. And for me that is where it should be.

I know I'm old, grumpy and weird but that's just how it is

Test Tube Titans, a game about growing monsters and then sending them off to wreak havoc

TcheySomehow frustrating because of the lack of control, it's also really fun because of the lack of control...

I played it to the "end" i think, now i'm just messing around with mutations, and it's still fun !

Yeah, it was really hard to get used to. Difference monsters controls very differently though so it's half the fun just to mess around.

I haven't played and liked a fighting game since One Must Fall 2097 but one can always hope. Will buy and check out if only for the Linux support

PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 has a new report out, over 40% of listed games now "Playable"

BeamboomOk, so how does this work exactly? Do you need a bluray-drive in yor PC and then your PS3-games are firef up from the drive like a PS3, or is anything special needed to be done to transfer the game to the hard-drive?

From their page:

QuoteMethod A: We recommend that you dump your own PlayStation 3 titles from your own console. This is the most compatible way to migrate your disc-based titles and the only way to dump digital titles to your PC. To do this, you will need a PlayStation 3 system with custom firmware.

For dumping disc-based games, you need to use multiMAN homebrew software in order to dump your disc files. You can transfer those files over to a computer through an external drive or using a FTP connection between your PlayStation 3 and your computer.

Note: The PlayStation 3 has a maximum file size of 4GB. When dumping games which contain files bigger than 4GB, multiMAN will split those files. When you have your dump over on your computer, you must rejoin the split files back together with part merging software such as ps3merge, otherwise the dump won't work.

For dumping digital games, you must copy the game folder from dev_hdd0/game/GameID on your console over to the same path on your RPCS3 folder. You also need to get your console's IDPS, the game's RIF and ACT.DAT, in order to generate a .RAP license file to be used in the emulator.
It is also possible to dump digital content and licenses on any PS3 even without custom firmware, by the way of creating a system backup, and then extracting it with ps3xport software.

Method B: You can dump titles using your computer by using select compatible Blu-ray drives. Please note that you can only use this method if an .ird file is available online for the decryption of the disc. Not every Blu-ray drive will recognize PlayStation 3 titles due to how PlayStation 3 format discs are designed. Requirements for a Blu-Ray drive to be able to fully read PlayStation 3 discs are: Mediatek chipset and a +6 read offset.
