Greetings Everyone!

For some time now, I have been working to preserve the PS3 exclusive DUST 514. Servers were shut down on 30th May 2016 and the amount of content left to preserve has been decreasing since then.

So, I am asking you for any dumps of the game, from any old closed beta builds, to dev builds to any retail copies you may still have. Any captured packets will help a lot too.
Every build matters as DUST 514 has been distributing content outside of regular PS Store releases and most currently available PKGs don't contain any of the extra content at all.
Some of these things include maps, SKINs and extra content like the ads for new SKINs that I would like to preserve.
I am also aware of XMB themes and wallpapers. If you have them I'd love to get a copy of these too.

Who knows, if I'd strike gold here we may even have enough data to attempt recreating the servers for it.

I have made a spreadsheet based on JumpSuit's MAG Builds Archive containing all the builds I have archived so far. Most of builds will match those archived but any copy of the game that logged to the game even once will have extra content that was downloaded in-game so if you have build it's definitely worth sharing.

This was such a fun game. I played the beta around 2012 or so. I would love to see this game revived.

What progress has been made? I would go through the effort of getting my ps3 out to play this game even with a small group
