Trouble With Character Skins.

11 replies 288 views Edited Sep 9, 2013

Sorry if this is already an existing thread, but I'm having difficulties with some character skins and I was hoping someone could help me out. A while back I had to bring my PS3 in for repair and when I got it back, some of my progress had been deleted (I never did a backup). When I started playing online again, I had to download patch 1.17 which is when all the problems started. In the offline co-op mode, all of my Uncharted 3 default character skins were locked, I'm at level 25 (on the offline mode) so I should be able to buy Elena, Sully, and Chloe. However, next to the dollar sign, I get a blinking shopping cart. The blinking alternates between the dollar sign and the shopping cart. The weird thing is that the second player can use any character skin. It only doesn't work for first player.

 

I know this was a problem with patch 1.13, but was fixed with patch 1.14. However, when I got my console back, I didn't have the option to download patch 1.14. It just went straight to patch 1.17. In the multiplayer this isn't a problem, I can use any character I want. 

 

I have a video if this helps any.

The blinking means that you can buy the character either with in game money, or thru the PS store. What happens when you press X and try to purchase the ones that are unlocked?

You can buy them bro. The shopping cart means that skin is also in the PSN store, so if you happen to be too stupid to get $25,000 in UC3, you can waste real money.

Green dollar sign means it's unlocked, but you didn't buy it so there's that.

Offline's fun. That's the only way TSD and Teammate can be in the same place without TSD dying because apparently blindfire isn't common for new players and TSD has to aim the shotgun.

That's my problem though. I'm aware that the shopping cart means they're available in the PS store, but I don't want to purchase them as DLC. I have the in-game money and I'm the right rank, but I literally can't purchase them with in-game money. When I press "x" to purchase them it just makes a beeping noise. It sounds more like the game is telling me there's an error.  The blinking is telling me that I have an option between the two, but it just doesn't let me purchase them. My only option is through DLC. I've had this game since it first came out, so I'm familiar with how the purchasing system works, but I just think it's weird that ever since I downloaded patch 1.17 everything's been messed up.

 

I have played online and it still doesn't work. It's only happening in the co-op mode, whether it's online or offline.

Send a PM to MacGruber310 (I think that's it).

He's a technical guy for Uncharted so he can probably fix your issue.

Or, or, delete patch and game data. It might be a bad download.

I was thinking about that. That may be my only option though.

I agree with deleting the game data and reinstalling it. It won't mess up any of your saved game stuff and has been known to solve a variety of problems.
