The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
First off, when you buy a texture, you get both the PS3 and Vita versions. Often both will download to your PS3, then the PS3 version will auto-install, but the Vita version won't (it's available for you to copy to a Vita, even if you don't have one). Just delete the Vita file.
THEN go see if the texture pack is already unlocked. Play Minecraft, select your world, select your texture - you can do this with any texture, even ones you don't own. If you start the game and you don't get a warning that you won't be allowed to save because you don't own the texture, then you're set - you've already got the license key installed. If you DO see that warning, then you'll need to download it again. Just go to the store (I prefer going to the PSN store rather than the in-game store, but either ought to work), search for Minecraft, and find the texture pack you want - if you've already purchased it (which should be true if you downloaded the Vita version), then instead of a "Buy" link you should have a "Download" link. Read the description - it ought to make it clear if you're looking at the Vita version or the PS3 version - and make sure you download the PS3 version. It will probably download and install quickly enough you won't get an option to download it in the background, and the next time you start Minecraft nothing will appear different - except that selecting the texture when you start a world won't result in a warning that you can't save a world with that texture.
I am asking the question on behalf of my 6 year old son, and I have min knowledge in PS3 nor Minecraft . Please help if you can.
1) I bought a Minecraft CD and play via PS3 , everything works well.
2) yesterday bought texture packs , I have downloaded in PS3 . I can see the VITA version also
3) I confirmed I bought it because in the pS3 studio I see the " download" link
4) I tried to go to the texture packs and installed only the PS3 version
5) I have reboot the system
the problem is when my son go to load his game and he can use the texture packs as before but he just cannot save , and the system prompting that it's trial texture pack. So I am sure the texture pack is not loaded in the game. ( playing via CD) I have tried all possibilities for the whole day, and I am trying my best to find solution for my son. Please me direct me to the right direction. Thanks
I've tried, both in game and on play station store, to download the city pack that I bought, but it still won't load. I restart the ps3, log into different accounts, try creating new games, but nothing seems to work. I have no idea what else to do.
