ESR is a program with which you can run unlicensed discs on a console without a modchip. To run, you need the program itself and the disc recorded from the image previously patched on the computer. The ability to bypass the license check by checking that the console treats patched disks as DVD Video

The archive contains three versions of the program:

dvd direct -version is designed to run directly from a DVD-ROM.

The mcard version is designed to run ELF files from mcx: /BOOT/BOOT.ELF and mcx: / B? DATA-SYSTEM / BOOT.ELF

DVD direct off version is designed to run directly from a DVD-ROM. It differs from the first version in that it is unloaded from memory after the first successful reset of the IOP. (A similar mode - "Mode 3" is present in the HDLoader program)

The compatibility of the program is quite high, the developers tested it on more than 100 games. Many games have been tested by users.

With a hombru, things are not so good. The fact is that there are cases when a hombru application tries to boot into the area of ​​RAM where the ESR is located. Obviously, this will not lead to anything other than a hang.

Games protected by DNA $ technology (mainly games with online multiplayer) work after patching specials. programs (WinDip), DVD9 games work. Patch can be either a Toxic-patcher, or one that comes bundled with ESR. However, it is worth noting that the patcher is in beta testing, so it is not a fact that all games will work. (Although GOW2 earned =)

CD games must first be converted to DVD, which is a very difficult task, due to the absolute LBA addressing. Tutorials on this subject can be found on the net.

It is also worth noting that to play on some console models, you need to change the book-type to DVD-ROM when recording to DVD + R / RW media. DVD-R should work without problems. It is not recommended to use +/- RW disks, as they exert a very strong load on the laser lens.

All consoles require a patched disk in the drive before starting the program!

1. Make an image of the game.

3. Burn on a blank.

4. Insert the console into the drive and start the ESR. (direct dvd or direct dvd off version (depends on the game))

The hack in question is an exploit that allows you to integrate into the official firmware and add several new features to it, in particular launch free gamesdownloaded from the internet.

Why, when I download a game from the Internet, does the cd drive constantly work, as if it grabs a disk even though it is not there, and so every 30 seconds, until the game is installed?

What is a PlayStation Network

PSN - Sony's online service where you can buy and download games and apps for PlayStation. Digital copies of games are stored on the hard drive. No additional steps are required to start them; you can play on a PS4 without a disc in the drive.

Games from the disks are installed on the HDD, but to run them it is required that the BR-disk itself be in the console, since it contains information about the license.

PSN often hosts various promotions for which you can buy a game with a discount of up to 70-80%.

A paid PlayStation Plus subscription allows you to play in multiplayer mode, and also provides free access to some games. Most free titles end up being indie games, but among them there is almost always one more or less worthy project.

Installing games on a PS4

Before proceeding to payment, you need to create and authorize your PSN account. The first step is to link your credit card or PayPal wallet.

PlayStation Store Online Game Store

Step 1. We go to the section “Settings” - “Account Management” - “Account Data”.

Step 2 In point "Wallet" we find "Payment Information". Here we indicate a convenient way to pay for content on the PSN.

Step 3 Enter all the necessary data, then check the correctness of the specified information and click "Save". To complete the wallet binding, click "OK".

Now buy our first game:

  2. Make sure that the funds are enough to pay,
  3. Click "Go to the payment" and Confirm Purchase.

If there is not enough money in your PSN account, click "Add funds".

If the inscription appears in the corner of the screen “Added to Downloads from the Web”, so you did everything right. Wait for the download to finish and install the game on the PlayStation 4 - and start the game.

PS4 firmware

All consoles hack sooner or later, which is what happened with the PS4.

True, the PS4 and Xbox One are not going to cave in under the pressure of hackers and still hold the defense. The old version of PS4 4.55 turned out to be weaker than the developers intended, and still managed to crack it. 5.01 is also on the way, but so far these are only rumors.

If you are lucky enough that you have not updated your console for a very, very long time, you can launch a special exploit, which allows you to install the game for free on your PS4 hard drive and open it on your console.

Before installing the game on a PS4 from a flash drive, do not forget to run the exploit.

True, this hack has several drawbacks. The main thing that you can not do with a hacked prefix is ​​to play in multiplayer. As soon as you connect to the Internet, it will immediately be banned in PSN. If this happens, you can not use the PSN service.

Pirate Discs for PS4 impossible to do, since licensed versions have a complex security system. The firmware of the drive has not yet been invented either.

You need to install pirated games on PS4 if you cannot afford to buy licensed copies. All projects that get to your console will be designed for one player, as you will not have access to the PSNwhile there is firmware.

Sooner or later you will want play with real opponents onlinetherefore we recommend installing an exploit, playing pirated games on PS4 until you complete all the projects you are interested in for free, and then upgrade to the latest version and enjoy new titles that you could not run on the old version of the system.
