I'm getting a million errors trying to move any files/folders that were in Vire's download to Horizon, mostly things about invalid headers and not being a valid Xbox360 package. I have no idea how the data file was pulled, either whatever was in Vire's download isn't complete/correct, there is something weird specific with this demo (which seems like it might be the case), or I'm doing something wrong. I'm going to wait until someone figures this out.
Yeah, dunno how it was pulled either, but it typically follows the format of content/0000000000000000/eight-digit number with letters/00080000 - which is why I won't be able to do anything with this I think.

Vire, did it ever look like that when you took it out within those four folders, and you just took the content of the last folder?
 
The .rar worked fine for me, but I was (apparently) one of the lucky few who got it from the original dropbox link.

Yeah, what I got was nothing at all like that, I think this is either missing files/directories or something weird is specific to this demo.

I got it from the original link, no dice.
 
:(

I really wish we could get this to work...

Anyone have a good guide for how you typically rip a demo? I'll try again recompiling.
how did you ripped it?

It's structure looks like a content that can't be shared (XBLA games, etc).

edit: I just saw the demo sharing thread, and it's working. So its not the case. Must be something wrong with your procedure.
edit 2: oh... I just realized that you just plugged the USB stick in your PC and copied the content? It will not work. You need a specific software to rip the content.

Alright, what is the software I need? (I'm running Lion OSX)

Edit: Couldn't you rip the content since it's the same file I would be ripping?

I'd be in the dick
This guy is http://en.twitch.tv/sournothardcore

but hes not really being serious anymore. Hes done like 3-4 playthroughs already and right now hes just messing around with the ugliest Shepard possible. Still gameplay though.
I peaked just for a second and the graphics are a huge step up over 3. The motion blur really adds a lot too. I just hope that's intact on the PS3 version since it's a huge part of the visual makeup of ME3 and I don't know of any UE3 games with motion blur on PS3.

If I ever post something in Japanese which I don't understand, please BAN me.
The music now on stream. I fucking need it.

edit: ah fuck this guy, he ruined the whole scene.

Just go back when he started. I'm going to watch that. I was hoping since I am at my parents house this weekend; that someone would fine a somewhat feasible way to get this through but it doesn't seem like it anymore but whatever. I'll just watch this guy play.

I don't know if the structure is locked to your console id. I'll try just copy the content.

What's the size of pendrive you used? 4gb?

8 gb

I found the program USBXTAFGUI - but I can't run it since it's an exe. I tried using Wine but it's giving me all sorts of errors.

I don't know a program to work with mac =(

Well. I managed to reproduce the exactly structure in my pen drive. I used a 4gb stick and formatted in the X360 as 2GB. Trying to copy right now.

If it not be recognized in my X360, I still can try to rip the content via USBXTAFGUI.
 
You know, I don't use my 360 a lot, so maybe I'm just terrible with gamepads, but I feel they definitely weren't joking when they said this was a lot harder than ME2.
