PS3 Error message...

I have been playing Resistance - fall of man for a few weeks now and then the otherday it wouldnt load my saved game, it just froze or the screen went blank and the controllers stopped working. I cleared all my saved data for the game and now the game wont load at all, just an error message comes up - it wont load logged in as me or my partner!

All other games seem fine and the disc is clean with no scratches etc..

    all other games seem fine so far, will try cleaning the lens etc and see if that helps!

This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

I had the same problem, believe it or not when I tried a different joystick (DG wireless lava glow) it worked. For some reason my original dualshock 3 joystick would recognize when I pressed the start button.

My internet connection works just fine but when i try to get online from resistance:fall of man, it says something like connection lost or something

Perhaps your internet connection speed isn't fast enough or there is too much latency on your connection. On any computers/gaming consoles that are on the network try to disconnect them from the internet while you try to play your game.

Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

i was having the same problem too but after i did a diegnosic on the game i found that insomnia games run off a similar engin. I realized that i had another saved game from insomnia "Resistance: Fall of Man". For some reason in that exact spot in the game it would try to load something from the engine and read off the Resistance file there for crashing the game and make hex code apear on screen. Simply just delet any saved games you have from insomnia titles and try this spot again it should work.
