So I just went to my friends house for his B-day with my 60 Gb Ps3. He still has a Ps2 and tons of games. We decided to play some Gauntlet: Dark Legacy becuase it was 4 player, and I had 4 Ps3 controllers. Before entering the game I made a Ps2 Memory card called "Gauntlet". That way all my Gauntlet saved data would go on its own card. We then all connected our controllers and then went into the game.
The PS2 logo pops up, yay. After the main menu pops up I quickly pressed the start key to play. Nothing happens... "Hmmmm...?" I thought to myself. All of our controllers were no longer connected. So we all connect them with ease. I then press start again and get to the new/load character screen. We all make our characters and start playing. Since there were 9 of us we decided to switch every time we beat a level. Me and 3 others play though the first level. We then save our characters and pass it to the other four players.
They make there characters and begin playing though the next level. After they are done they pass one to the odd man out, and 3 to the other team. I am left out. They all make there characters. They play though the level and then try and save, everyone saves good except the odd man out just got the shaft. The game only allows 8 slots per card. So I want to just make a new card like I should be able to but that would make things easy, so w/e. I exit out of the game to make a new card, no big deal.
OMG, I have to reconnect my controller again. I make the new card "Gauntlet2". I then go back into the game. Having learned my lesson we all connect our controllers. My controller says "1" so I asume I am first player. I press start and It goes to the load screen. I press "load" and try and load my guy. My controller isn't changing anything. I Press the PS button and it says on the PS3 I am first player. "wtf?". Ok then. They all try to load there guy.
Second player is first, first is not there. Fourth is second, and Third is fourth. OMG WTF HAPPENED. I try and figure it out. Not only is the controllers messed, but it says I dont have a memory in card slot 1 even though there is one in one and there isnt one in 2 yet. So Everything is messed up. I dont know what the hell happened.
Upon thinking about it later I think I realized what happened. The memory card was player 2. Controller 1 was memory card 1. Memory card 2 was player 3. So this made Controller 1 not be a player, Player 2 be player 1, Player three be player 4, and player 4 be player three.
I am baffled at how this big of a glitch happened.
Oh and just so you know. This happened again with Baldurs Gate too later that night. Everyone there was laughing at my poor Ps3. =( That was a sad day.
