    Is there some native Sony program for screenshots or videos? Or do we just get the camera out and take a picture of the tv screen?

    You need an HDMI cable to play split-screen. Maybe that is it?

    posted a message on Spawning Villagers.
    I can confirm that iron golems spawn when you have enough villagers. I've had four spawn in my current world in the ps3 version.

    As for the original poster, once you get down to below two villagers, that's it as far as I know unless you go into creative. However, once a world goes into creative, then that world stops updating the leaderboards, whenever that function is fixed.

    My recommendations for large villages is to first fence off the village so that no one can get in or out without using the gate. Otherwise not only will the villagers get killed before a golem spawns, but the villagers may also wander off and then get eaten. Then build new buildings with lots of doors facing the outside. Interior doors don't count, because the doors must have one side which can get the sun shining on them to put it simply.

    posted a message on Corrupted Saves
    That examiner article is wrong, unfortunately. I found the article not long after it came out in December and tried following the advice. I had a nice world I was building, and would only autosave instead of saving manually. It seemed to be working for a while, but one of the autosaves got corrupted and I lost the world. So it isn't the fix that it makes itself out to be.

    What is working so far for me, like I said earlier, is manually saving only in single screen and never in splitscreen. Even though it will still autosave in splitscreen, I overwrite those with a single screen manual save. That has been working so far.

    And just in case what I'm doing fails, then back it up too. After saving and exiting, try reloading the world to make sure it is good, then back it up to a thumb drive with the known good save.

    posted a message on how do I keep the villagers from congregating in the northwest?
    I've created a lot of many-doored buildings, fences, had four iron golems spawn, created a downtown area with big buildings, etc. It's just that these villagers want to stay in the northwest corner. The only workaround I've seen from googling the issue is to bury villagers alive at various points in the village, which I don't want to do LOL. What other workarounds are there?

    I'm thinking of creating more wells so that the villagers might think that there is more than one village, but I doubt it will work.

    posted a message on Corrupted Saves
    I've lost several worlds to the corrupted saves. For the last week or so, I've been making everyone in splitscreen exit the game before saving it. And I've been backing up to a thumb drive everyday. So far that has been working, although I can't guarantee anything. Hopefully the upcoming patch fixes this and the leaderboards bugs.
