Quick question for everyone...

Does anyone know of any spaces, other than the minis Space & PS Move space (Presentation Podium), that are still able to be visited but not listed on the location list? And... do you have access to them?! Thanks!

I don't know of any others offhand. A lot of us here have those saved to our favorites, so you need to friend one of us, we invite you, then you add to your favorites as well and you can revisit anytime. Add me and when we're on together I'll help you out.

Not clear if you still need access to minis or Move space... but if you do.

I have two questions I'm sure someone can answer for me. If so, that'd be great.

-Does the Zombie Deadquarters personal space still give out the free zombie costumes? [And if so, would anyone here be willing to let me in? ^_^]

-I know this is probably the wrong section for this, but I figure this thread is close enough. I can't seem to be able to complete the Ferris Wheel part of the Winter Quest 3/3. I've done it wearing all of the winter clothes they give you dozens of times with random people invited to join me on the Ferris Wheel and nothing happens. I've heard that you have to sit there for a bit before the new item unlocks but I've sat for around 5 minutes once or twice and it just doesn't seem to unlock. -_-

If the Modnation Racers limited time event space thing [the one where you can get a free piece of furniture] counts, then yes, I have access to it. I'm not sure if it's listed for others because I haven't checked yet, but I can go there myself and it was empty when I went in.

I had on the jacket, hair and mustache and went on invited someone, they jumped on for literally 1 second and exited. The reward did not pop up immediately, I exited the ferris wheel then checked the activity board to re-read it, jumped back on the ferris wheel and before i invited anyone again it popped up. I think it is glitchy and not sure what I did is the way to do it, but I figured it worked for me so you may want to try the same just in case it works.

I'm aware of two others, the Toyota Prius Solar Scramble space and the old Double Six space (which is the same as Burn Zombie but not the same name and not on the menu).

Theaters 6-10 were available until about two weeks ago if you had them favorited, but with the update that week the "favorite" became the theater lobby. they didn't have anything special, just continued to show the same media that was there last.

Yes, this space still gives the zombie costume. (but no, i don't have it).

Uninstalling home wont/doesn't remove your favorites. FYI

That is correct. His favorites (as well as other things like his Avatars) are saved on the "Settings" file in his Saved Data Utility folder. When you delete Home it does not delete any of the files in that folder.

Even if he deleted that file, if he made a copy of it he can also restore it.

You only need to wear the icy hair, and wearing other items wont make any difference so you don't have to worry about removing them either.

The issue is that if you did not wait for the HDD symbol to disappear after entering Pier Park - or any space for that matter, it can cause a data error which can make a Quest Info message and or reward not pop up right away, or even not at all.

This is also why your system can freeze in Home when doing anything that causes the program to record data to your HDD (changing spaces, exiting wardrobe, decorating, receiving reward, quest info, among other things) when it is already in the middle of recording data (HDD symbol still on the screen). Most of the time it wont be an issue, but occasionally it will cause a data error due to a conflict of the program receiving multiple record data tasks at the same time.

BTW: I suspect this happens more often with users that have less than 10% of disc space left on their HDD.

As for your quest, and anyone else stuck on a quest that didn't register a completion. It's an easy fix. Go back to the last step that did register. Wait for the HDD symbol to disappear from the screen before you change spaces or start that part of the quest.

So for instance, when you arrive back at Pier Park to ride the Ferris Wheel. Stay put until the HDD symbol disappears.

Then go to the Ferris Wheel. Invite anyone, but do not leave the Ferris Wheel until the Quest Info message appears and you are given a reward. Then exit the Ferris Wheel, but DO NOT change spaces until after the HDD symbol disappears, as it will be recording the fact that you completed that part of the quest. If you do leave before it stops recording, you risk yet another data error which could cause your PS3 to freeze, and possibly not record that you completed that part of the quest.

Have you played poker before? The same sort of thing happened to me. I just waited until I was told to go play, waited for the HDD indicator to go out, turned around and talked to the Polar Bear (Snowman?) again and it popped for me. It's only if you have played poker before though.

As I mentioned in the PS forums:

You DO NOT need to have ever played poker or the trivia game to complete the Winter Event quest. All you have to do is wear the jersey, go to the Sports Walk space, WAIT for the HDD symbol to disappear after arriving (data is saved to your HDD each time you change spaces in Home), then WAIT for the HDD symbol to reappear (data is recorded when you complete any part of a quest objective), now you can return to the Snowman and he will give you the pajamas.

I've tested this out with a brand new account that never played poker or trivia, or any game in Home, and I completed the task by just visiting the space with the jersey on.

That space was removed from the servers a long time ago. When a space is removed from the servers it can't be visited, and either it gets automatically removed from your favorites, or is a broken link, or is linked to a different space - as they just did with the old theater spaces which now link to the new lobby.

As far as I know, currently the only spaces that you can only get to from your favorites list, or if a friend is there are:

Presentation Podium
Minis Space
Toyota Prius LBP
Guitar Hero VIP Room

Looks like they fixed the poker but now I am stuck on that stupid catch 6 different fish quest. If it wasn't for these quests no one would play that stupid fishing game.

Anyone have any tips on this quest as I still need the last 3 fish.

Just keep at it! :) Change lures when you can; aim for the glowing, bubbling spots when they appear. It's not that challenging!

I don't know what you all are doing in the fish game, but it took me less than 10 minutes for all 6 different fish.

First of all... DO NOT aim for the bubbles. The bubbles are for getting the largest fish for any type. So if you want to get on the leaderboard, yes, aim for the bubbles, if you want to just get all 6 fish, do not aim for them as it just wastes time.

Second of all, make short casts. That way, the second you hit a fish, it takes less than two seconds to reel it in and it wont have time to try and shake loose, which just wastes more time.

Also, after casting, Keep tugging on the line (left stick) as soon as it hits the water. Most of the time I'll hit a fish right away. Using these methods I can catch around 20 fish in just one minute.

Next, as mentioned, every time you get a new lure, switch to it. You are just wasting more time using older lures, as they wont attract the bigger types of fish.

I've done this same quest for four different accounts, and none of them took longer than 10 minutes to complete. One I did in less than 5 minutes.

You don't have to have a friend or favorite. You can use Recently Visited, provided you haven't been warping all over Home.

The Japanese love these stupid games. One of the latest additions to Home Japan is a fishing hole (followed by a Sodiumesque waitress/bartender space). If Americans can like Madden, which is nothing like playing real football no matter how snazzy the graphics, then people can like a game that's nothing like fishing. Nier has a far worse fishing minigame.

Is anyone else having this problem with Winter Quest 3/3? When I go sit in the hot tub near the pier for the first part of the quest, the rewards don't pop up. I've tried clearing the cache, deleting Home altogether, removing the quest and adding it back, and getting another reward somewhere else, but none of that has helped. Is there any way to fix it or am I just screwed out of the rewards for that quest?

That sort of goes without saying... but if you recently visited any of those spaces (as they have been gone a long time ago) then most likely its because it was saved to your favorites, or joined a friend, but yes - technically speaking if you visit any space it is saved temporarily in your recently visited menu.

I have tested all these quests on several accounts and the only time there is a problem with a task not getting registered is because of an HDD data error. It's an easy fix though.

For one, as stated many times, if you are having problems, ALWAYS wait for the HDD symbol to appear, and then disappear. Going from one task to another, completing a task, changing spaces, exiting wardrobe, etc all require data to be saved. You always risk a data error (although rare), when you do something that requires data to be saved while it is already saving data to your HDD.

You may not think you were saving data, but even just talking to the snow bear or snow man or activity board to get your next clue will require saving data on your HDD - but it wont necessarily do it right away. Most of the time it wont be an issue - but I can pretty much guarantee every time there is an issue with a quest it was a data error.

So if you are having an issue, ALWAYS wait for the HDD to appear after EVERY hint and every task, and every reward, and every time you change anything on your avatar, or enter a new space. After the HDD symbol disappears it is safe to move to the next part of the task.

Another issue can be lag if you have a slow connection - also easily fixed by simply being patient and wait.

As for your situation, you do not need to reset your cache, you do not need to delete Home. Just go back to the last task that gave you the objective (which should be the snow bear). If it tells you to go to the hot tub to get the jersey and frozen mustache, then wait for the HDD symbol to appear and then disappear. Now go to the hot tub. You do not need to sit in it. Just stand anywhere inside it and wait. Most of the time you will get the rewards instantly, but occasionally there can be a delay.

When you get the rewards, wait for the HDD symbol to appear and disappear (it needs to save that you received those rewards as well as completed that part of the task). Now head back to the snow bear to receive your next clue.

If that still doesn't work, than contact Sony as you may have a more serious problem.

I finally got the first few parts of the quest to work, but now I'm getting a D5021 error every time I sit on the ferris wheel and get disconnected from Home. Is anyone available to help me with that part of the quest really quick to see if I can get the reward before being disconnected?
