Friday! Warhawk v1.1 Patch…

Dylan Jobe's Avatar Posted by Dylan Jobe on Nov 01, 2007 // President, LightBox Interactive

Just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know that the Warhawk v1.1 patch will be deployed world-wide on Friday, November 2nd, during an extended maintenance window between 5am and 9am Pacific.

Some of you were able to download the v1.1 patch before it was “officially” ready. Since this occurred without the server-side updates to complement it, not all of the fixes would have functioned. Specifically, the viral-rank-up fix and the time-in-vehicle stat fix. Once we bring the system back online Friday, 9am Pacific, these fixes will be functional.

Also, once we deploy the patch, when you boot Warhawk, you will be prompted by the XMB to download the v1.1 patch. This is a fast download so it’s not a time killer. Once the XMB has pulled the patch down, Warhawk will boot back up and be happy! You will also notice a “v1.1” in the lower right corner of the screen.

So, we’ll be monitoring the roll-out tomorrow and this weekend so please check the forums for more info!

Oh…one last thing, if you want to see the list of stuff in the v1.1 patch hit this link.

Hooya, Dylan. I appreciate the work you guys are doing to better this game to it’s fullest? Sooooo… any new info on this “Booster Pack” you spoke of?


+ KnaveX on November 1st, 2007 at 5:34 pm said:

Yes! I hope this fixes all the problems ive been having.


+ Rated-G on November 1st, 2007 at 5:37 pm said:

Yay! I’ve been anticipating this update all week! I wish I didn’t have morning classes tomorrow… Stupid midterms…

LOL…whatever i gave up on this mess already…too little too late

I loved Warhawk when it had problems.Can’t imagine how great it will be when its fixed.


+ Ultima-Bahamut on November 1st, 2007 at 5:40 pm said:

Heck yes! Time to hone my Wowhawk skills again.
Might be asking a bit much, but can you guys, in a future patch, make it so Warhawk passengers can eject/jump out? Thanks, and I understand if it can’t be done.

Great news! I can’t wait for the DL content to start rolling in on this one. Well, or free… whatever you guys decide. I’d be willing to pay for it, myself… Cause I feel this os one of the only ps3 games that is actually worth investing in again and again. Resistance is another one. Motorstorm… not so much. I feel ripped off everytime I pay for new content with the game, cause it was so bare bones to begin with.


+ Gregero on November 1st, 2007 at 6:07 pm said:

*drops them cluster bombs too*


+ Kamahl on November 1st, 2007 at 6:35 pm said:

yes!!!!! first resistance, now warhawk!

its great to have developers so dedicated!


+ nmc75 on November 1st, 2007 at 7:48 pm said:

Me and my buddy can’t wait to hop back into Warhawk, as the whole stats not updating issue was a reason why we stopped playing for the longest time. Thanks for keeping the community up to date on all that is happening and for the continued patching that is going on and planned down the line!


+ Kpepe on November 1st, 2007 at 8:07 pm said:

Great when will we get v1.2 (thats the good stuff!!!!!!)


+ zookey on November 1st, 2007 at 8:20 pm said:

Warhawk passengers can eject/jump out? Thanks, and I understand if it can’t be done.

I agree with this–and also make it so that you can eject out of the shotgun seat if you can’t land but are within a certain distance to the ground and hovering—or, while hovering, you can walk on your flying craft to get sniping positions (but people can blow up/rock your plane with gun fire to knock you off to your death)—DUDE that’d be sweet LOL

Yeah long story short good job on patch I know I will be downloading it asap!


+ west on November 1st, 2007 at 8:46 pm said:

whoa XMB asks you to download patches?

Gota love the dedicated devs.


+ tearsofash on November 1st, 2007 at 9:04 pm said:

What if you already had 1.1 but didn’t delete it? Will it work now?


+ frito on November 1st, 2007 at 9:28 pm said:

Thanks for the continued support, and thanks for listening to all our suggestions!

This is THE PS3 Online game right now- it is the high water mark so far, and it is the basis for all others – i.e. XBox fans- to measure how their online service rates against ours-

The world truly is watching-

ill be trying the new patch out as soon as i wake up tomorrow


+ T_Tokyo on November 1st, 2007 at 10:20 pm said:

Thanx D!

I appreciate the suppport, for a very fun online game, the booster packs going to be sweet!!!

this has been posted all over the web BEFORE this blog.. nice “personal” touch. Why not write something personal Dylan? it’s a BLOG not a message board.


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 2:58 am said:

Ha ha ha! After I heard about the RFOM patch, I patched and had a go. I love the ease with which you can get into a game, but blimey, I was rubbish. I couldn’t remember the controls, and when I rediscovered them, I was wishing they were Warhawks. Ha ha! I love RFOM, but Warhawk is my new [DELETED].


+ willywhisky on November 2nd, 2007 at 5:45 am said:


Things must be busy because I keep getting either a network connection error or can’t reach server error.


+ so_what_20six on November 2nd, 2007 at 6:01 am said:

A heads up for UK Warhawk fans.
Just been on phone with Sony Customer Support and been told “We’re getting a lot of calls about people being told they can’t use the content from their systems, the servers are down until 4pm GMT but the patch should have downloaded fine and the game should work after that time”
Save you a bit of cash phoning them to be told the same thing as me.
Roll on 9pm when I’m home from work to try it out. WOOOOOO!


+ ISEMAN on November 2nd, 2007 at 6:04 am said:

@Loucifer – man, all you do is complain. You have some super nerd power complex don’t you.

Thanks Dylan, the game rocks!!!! These updates are just more icing on the already very tasty cake, my buddy and I are addicted to your game.


+ gamesblow on November 2nd, 2007 at 6:25 am said:

Dylan, I just got this really cool idea… “JET PACKS” What about it? Think about it, man. How cool would it be to add rocket packs to our soldiers for certain task we complete? It could go hand in hand with The Airmen rank. They could control just like the warhawks, really. Only on your Soldier… Anyone think it’d be cool?


+ Davitr0n on November 2nd, 2007 at 6:50 am said:

@ gamesblow – Jet packs would be cool. :)

Can’t wait to get this patch and jump back into Warhawk at the correct rank. Never thought I would be so happy to be demoted! (if it works)


+ xxLONESTARxx on November 2nd, 2007 at 6:58 am said:

Woohoo! This and the Resistance update made my week…Good Work.


+ PATRICKMAGHERAFELT on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:12 am said:

Oh no. I have downloaded the update but now warhawk will not start. It says “you cannot use this content on your account”. Even though it is the account i have used every time i played warhawk. i have tried deleting the warhawk memory but that didn’t work either and now i am re-downloading off playstation store. Please help!


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:14 am said:

Oh crivvens! Here’s how it happened to me. I loaded up Warhawk, “There’s a patch, woo hoo!” I shout, go. Patched! Reload Warhawk, “Can’t be played on this account?”, WTF? Tried US account. Nope. Backup and erase settings and stuff. Nope, no joy. Reset, try again. So at this point I’m assuming a half assed patch test has resulted in a corruption of my installation. Balls. I can’t even play locally. Okay, I paid for this, downloaded it. I can do this again. So, delete. Back on the PSN, download again. It’s still downloading as I type. I came here to whine about it….

…only to find here that the servers are down for a few hours, and that’s probably why it’s bust. Well, ain’t that just perfect?

Note to self: If possible, check net before doing anything too drastic.
Note to patch developers: Perhaps you could make mention of the scheduled downtime in the patch instructions? Something like date and time of downtime? Simply “Would I like to patch?” wasn’t enough for me. I’m sure it wasn’t for others either.

Oh well, roll on fourish GMT.

I am glad I backed up my settings though. All that phaff to get the feel just right again? No thanks. Mmm! Here’s a thought: It’d be nice to think that future games with similar controls could tap into existing game installations and use the control preferences. That’d make newer games so much quicker to jump into wouldn’t it?

Hey, as an aside, does anyone have a GranTurismo4 save that they can post? I’d just like to have a last proper blast before a new GT arrives, and can’t be arsed to work through everything again. Especially the licenses. What a ball ache they are!

Okay, that’s my tuppenth worth. Enjoy!


+ gamesblow on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:16 am said:


They’re doing server updates and matiens, man. Don’t jump the gun on everything. Let Sony and Incog sort it out before you go all up in arms and deleat things and re-download stuff.

P.S. Dylan > Jet packs… think about it “ha”


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:21 am said:

Jetpacks? Nah! Throwing any spare knives that you’ve liberated? Yes please.


+ gamesblow on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:24 am said:

Jet packs would rule, man. They’d give a whole new air strike assault and in turn add a new layer of depth to the game. Now people would have 2 forms of air strikes, so to speak. 1 more traditional and the other more intricate.

The knife idea is cool too, though. I’d love to be able to toss them at people. I’d also like a shotgun!!!


+ gamesblow on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:26 am said:

Basically, the cool things I’d like to see in Warhawk…

Jet packs, throwing knives, Shotguns… ATV’s/Bikes… That’d be enough to keep me super impressed and glued to Warhawk for the rest of the PS3’s life (which I hope is long ammounts of time)


+ PATRICKMAGHERAFELT on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:30 am said:

I can’t wait till the new warhawk expansion pack comes. Anyone know the price? Dropships are a feature in it i am told. What are dropships, in warhawk terms? My warhawk is still not workin ;(


+ gamesblow on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:47 am said:

Drop ships are going to be large airship pods, basically. They will carry troops and tanks and jeeps


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:49 am said:

@40, has your Warhawk been reinstalled fresh? That’s how mine was. I’m hoping a last portion of patch needs downloading, so it’s waiting for the servers to come back online.

Troop carriers would be nice. But we’d need some larger maps to make them worth while.

All together now, NEW BIGGER MAPS PLEASE! Perhaps they’ll hear us.


+ willywhisky on November 2nd, 2007 at 7:52 am said:

I think it would be cool to be able to parachute.

Jump out of a plane, it the chute, stear to avoid fire and land.

I like the jetpack idea too… but it seems to be a bit of a departure from the reality… parachuting… we have those.


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:01 am said:

Oh craperoonie. It seems, from other forums, that only the UK is having the hiccup with the accounts. Can anybody else confirm this? Am I gonna be upset for longer than today? Say it ain’t so!


+ gamesblow on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:05 am said:

Parachutes would be nice, but they could get over used. I think the perfect balance of a parachute would be “Dylan, please take this into consideration” when you’re in the warhawk with another guy and he’s poilot. That sucks. You can’t get out and he, more often than not, likes to be a Complete Cricket D*ck and kill both of you. It’d be cool to have the option to bail out in the air in these events. Or, jsut use your Jet PACK “ha”


+ PATRICKMAGHERAFELT on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:06 am said:

Well said gamesblow!


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:29 am said:

Make the Warhawk passenger a rear gunner. Or let us fire our usual weapons out of an open hatch, avoiding the wing of course. ;-)


+ crmgs on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:30 am said:

where are the servers in warhawk? cant u do a proper job sony?


+ edwineverready on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:35 am said:

i have a download copy of warhawk in the netherlands. it won’t let me in. it says that i am not the owner of the game. i could download the v1.1 patch. hope this problem is gone when the servers are up again.


+ LordOfRuin on November 2nd, 2007 at 8:42 am said:

Other forums suggest that once successfully patched, we should be able to access the game, though not online. It would appear that some, myself included, are having a less than successful time of it.

Any official word Dylan?


+ Johnny Sasaki on November 2nd, 2007 at 9:13 am said:

Awesome stuff! Can’t wait to get back into Warhawk after my Ratchet & Clank spree :D


+ edwineverready on November 2nd, 2007 at 9:18 am said:

nobody in europe that has the download version of the game can play it. I hope they fix this today, because i would like to play the game with the new patch


+ Dominican21 on November 2nd, 2007 at 9:18 am said:

Any official words on Firmware 2.00

When will it be available or isnt ready yet?
