Metal Gear Solid 4 Trophy Patch

So recently and not too long ago, Kojima Productions Report podcast Episode 164 announced they were doing a Trophy Patch for Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and that time has already come where they’ve now released this Trophy Patch of 516Mb in size, which includes various fixes for the game too as well as just adding in Trophies to existing MGS4 Games. They also said they’d be releasing a new batch of fixed updated game versions of Metal Gear Solid 4 which people can buy from stores, or just download the update if you’ve already currently got the game.

The Trophy Patch comes with the following updates to it;

  • Save Data created before the patch will NOT unlock Trophies automatically.
  • Save Data created after the patch will also NOT pre-unlock trophies if you import another Save Data that’s not your own.
  • METAL GEAR® ONLINE menu item has been removed as it’s no longer in service, in place of being able to fully install Game Data before playing.
  • All current existing METAL GEAR® ONLINE save data will also be deleted after the patch update.

Some of you may be feeling sad that your Metal Gear Online Save Data will be erased in the same process as of updating. However don’t feel as if everything’s all lost, just remember all the good times you’ve spent playing Metal Gear Online! :3

You have to unlock 34 Trophies for this game, some can be obtained pretty easily if you’ve already played through the game, and alot of them can be obtained when playing through new first play through as you play through the game normally, you’ll get trophies for beating every chapter normally, as well as special ones where you have to do something specific in the game to unlock them. Here’s the list of Trophies you can get, the hidden ones are Main Story, and Special ones. I’ve unlocked a few of them myself.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots – Trophy List

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots – Trophy List

I would reckon this should be easy enough to complete this list, providing it’s not too difficult, although some on there do look pretty tough! ;P –– I would have to say that the most difficult ones to obtain would be Ghost Photography Addict, Flashback Mania, Sounds of the Battlefield, and I Just Don’t Fear Death with obtaining the Corpse Camo to begin with. Collecting the iPod Music Tracks would be most difficult since you have to look around for them to obtain them all, and will require a 2nd play through, there is hard decisions to make later in the game for obtaining an iPod Music Track later on Shadow Moeses, when you are asked to input the 4 key code for Otacon, since there it more than 1 special code which unlocks the following;

  • 100,000 DP ::: 14893
  • Opening-Old L.A ::: 78925
  • Policenauts Ending ::: 13462

Two of which are iPode Music Tracks and the other for obtaining 100,000 Drebin Points. You can only input one of these through playing the game, so you’ll have to come back and obtain the rest later, however obtaining 100,000 DP can be obtained as many times needed during each play through, so it’s not just a 1-time-only collection like the iPod Music Tracks. –– To get the Corpse Camo you have to use 50 Continues to unlock it on any difficulty, the Corpse Camo makes people think you are dead when you either lie down or get knocked down by the enemy and sit there doing nothing, they’ll stop shooting at you and come to inspect your body then walk away. This Camo works great with the face of Big Boss. –– For getting Ocelot to kiss you during the final battle, let him grab you in CQC, and he should automatically do it, if he doesn’t just keep trying.

To get the Ghost Photography Addict trophy I would suggest leaving that to a 2nd time of playing the game after you’ve obtained The Sorrow Doll after beating Screaming Mantis in the previous play through, The Sorrow Doll will help you find the Ghost images you need to find to take pictures of when you Equip it with the Camera when you’re in Shadow Moeses.

And for those of you wondering why METAL GEAR® ONLINE is closed now is because the service has been running for 4 years, and after the long 4 years it was time to bring it to an end, but fear not, someday you may see another Metal Gear Online, the third instalment, Metal Gear Online v3.0, and hopefully on it’s own disc world wide and not bundled together with another game, and hopefully a long lasting service of playing MGO. :3 –– Here’s a video I gathered together and created during the end days of MGO, I was gonna post a blog about it back then when MGO closed, but with tight deadline for producing the video was tough, I didn’t complete the video till July when it was suppose to of been finished for June 12 when MGO ended. D: …anyway, enjoy this video! (=^〰^=)

PSN Trophy Sync

Quite up until recently I was unaware of a certain what looks like, a bug or glitch with PSN Trophy’s on PS3. I didn’t notice it before until I went to go play Dead Island and Sonic Generations that I noticed I was receiving the same Trophies I’ve already obtained in the game from regular play. So I hit up a search on Google to see what could be done about it. It turns out that it’s something to do with the Trophy

PSN Trophies

PSN Trophies

Sync between your PS3 and the PSN Server with your account on it. What I have seemed to of discovered is that if you’ve obtained alot of Trophies for a certain game while connected to PSN, then go back and play them while signed out for a while, and you obtain more trophies for a certain game, then reconnect back online, I would probably say that the time frame would be 3-5 weeks maybe more of offline mode while playing games that have Trophies, that was roughly how long I was at the time due to Internet connection issues and constantly being signed out all the time, then asking me to update the system firmware, blah blah blah… then where I just decided to leave it signed out.

 

I’m guessing the whole thing about this weird glitch is probably a fail-safe to prevent people from cheating, trying to obtain a certain trophy without actually achieving it properly, or something like that, but what I did dig up that it is some sort of glitch that can happen sometimes, the simple fix to it is to just “Sync with Trophy Server“. So from the PS3 XMB screen go to Trophy which is under Game, then press to open the Side Menu then Press X to sync with the server, this may take some time to sync, but once this is done, go back into the game(s) that had missing Trophies and it should all be there again.
