    hi Wololo,
    can you post the original INSTALL.ZIP file , i cant find the original , only have one save , i can load VHBL but cant see the ORIGINAL INSTALL ZIP, i know how to make it transfer etc.. but the original one is missing.(the one you replace the install ZIP file on another game)
    Do i have to have a second psp game as i can only see one monster hunter save file , that is all , i have other games like fifa and mod nation racers but nothing else appears in save files but the monster hunter game.

    Other people i think are having same problem i think , once again anhy help is appreciated .

    Hi, I’m dummie on this, but I think got some bug in VHBL (or need some help). I patched a emulator, like is described above, but when I load the VHBL and try install it, this stuck and install anything. It stuck in 8 files remained or 2 files remained, but the screen don’t show any install just show, for example 8 files remained, and sounds is like a install.

    This is a bug or I’m just a jerk?

    Sorry my english I’m brazilian.

      Read the article again, your exact use case is described. This happens because you compressed some of the files
