I have CHAIR RACE on my PS3. The thing is, it doesn't appear in my download history, but it's available to play in-game anyway.

What firmware on you on? You aren't on the latest 4.83, are you?

Hi, i just registered to report that a couple of DLC songs are lacking parts of the descriptions, they're cut after a couple of words in most cases. Examples:

- Love Theme ~hum version~
- On the Edge
- Leo! Leo!
- La Clown
- Arsenal's Guts
- Everything Begins
- Ray
- At Dawn
- VR TRAINING
- FATHER AND SON

Their full descriptions can be found in the Metal Gear Wiki though.

EDIT: some OctoCamos have the same problem, too:

- LAUGHING CAMO
- RAGING CAMO
- CRYING CAMO
- SCREAMING CAMO

Also, when did you add the "Guns of the HIDECHAN!Radio 02" thing? It wasn't there the last time i downloaded the podcasts. And not sure if it is intended but "MGS4 Integral Podcast 05" doesn't say that it is the third episode, unlike the others.

EDIT 2: again, some podcasts are lacking their descriptions, too: 10, 11, 12, and probably others, don't want to check. They're all here: https://www.giantbomb.com/metal-gear-so ... 030-20669/

Fixed the cutoff issue.

Right now, I'm trying to add a region selector so you can switch between US and JP DLC on-the-fly.
I can't just add them to the integral podcast tab, since it's too many items and crashes the game.
It might error out normal operation while I work on it, so keep that in mind.

Just an update. I'm done with my changes.

You can now switch between NA and JP in the Octocamo menu.

Let me know if you have any more issues, thanks.

I'm aware that the menu doesn't work for all versions of the game. Still haven't been able to look into that.

Hello again, i'm the guy from a couple of posts above that reported the missing descriptions for the DLCs. I already lost my other account because i put some random stuff in it, is it possible to merge this account with the other one (and keep the login info for this because i no longer remember the other one)? Or just the posts so it could return as mine? Sorry for the inconvenience, i hope you'll understand.

Anyway thanks for fixing all the issues. What happened, exactly? Problems with special characters? And how does the region switching work? Can i use both Japanese and English podcasts at the same time? When i switch regions (from what i've seen, you have to choose the option, get the "network error", exit the DLC download page, re-enter, and see the other region, is this correct?) from US to Japan the iPod reports that i have 37 items, because the English podcasts aren't counted when you're in the Japan region, and vice-versa.
The special characters were converted automatically, in the wrong way, when the files were transferred or edited at some point. So once the game hit one of those special characters (the single and double curved quotation marks), it threw away the rest of the text.

Also, Integral Podcast 05 is missing the "this is the x episode" text because they hit the text limit, so it was omitted.

Yes, you can use both podcasts in-game at the same time. At least, I was able to when I checked in the Virtual Range. I only had 2 downloaded though, there may be a limit on how many it shows.

You are correct on how to switch regions. I can't make it easier than that, unfortunately. Not without integrating it on some external web page.

Can you make a tutorial for doing this wireless? I'm on OFW 4.83 but when i go to create the connection the "set the operation mode for the detected device" menu is instead a "WLAN settings" that requires I input an SSID & security setting, which is information I cannot find listed in this thread. I do not have an option to do this wired. Thanks.

Edit: So I am obviously not technically savy.
For SSID/Network Security you need to input YOUR OWN information
Thanks to the below for clarification.

I play on MGS4 from the legacy collection, aka 2.0 by default, and can help anyone stuck trying to swap NA to J regions. The way to do it is to simply go into octocamo like normal and click on the "Switch to X" button. It will tell you you got a network error but that is fine. Now simply back all the way out of the extras menu to the main menu and re-enter. You will now be in the other region and able to download the other podcasts.

What firmware on you on? You aren't on the latest 4.83, are you?
I apologize for the late reply, and even worse news. I'm currently running firmware 4.84. If there's any way I can help beyond that, I'm up for it. I can provide a screen shot of the song in question running on the in-game iPod (it's such a shame it wasn't called the "iZune").
