We will update this thread with solutions to some of the problems (NOT BUGS) you guys are reporting. If you notice a new problem or find a solution to a problem that is asked on the forums, post in this thread, and I will do my best to compile all the answers/solutions from you + the devteam in this first post.

<span class="ev_code_BROWN">GENERAL SOLUTIONS</span>

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">I cannot get any mission specific unlocks/achievements/trophies after I have finished a mission in co-op</span>

The mission unlocks/achievements/trophies system is designed to prevent you from getting the unlocks/achievements/trophies in the following situations:

<LI>If you don’t have single-player progress up to the respective mission (ex: If you got up to mission 6 in singleplayer and then you join a friend to play directly on mission 9 and complete it, you will still not get the achievement/trophy/unlock for mission 9)- this is mainly to prevent users from getting an advanced aircraft without making a normal campaign progression;

<LI>If you played less than 50% of the mission (Ex: you join an in-progress co-op mission that lasts for 15 minutes total, but you only play the last 5 minutes, you won’t get the achievement/trophy/unlock for the mission) - this was designed to prevent users from joining in the last possible moment just for the purpose of getting a free achievement/trophy/unlock.



<span class="ev_code_BLUE">PC SOLUTIONS</span>


<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">I don’t find the DirectX 10 executable in the HAWX PC steam version</span>

The problem has been solved.You can now play HAWX through steam on both DX9 and DX10.


<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">My monitor goes out of range/ the image is black when I start the game</span>

The game’s default resolution might not be supported by your monitor. You might try to start the game in other resolutions or windowed mode. You can do that by editing manually the following file:

My Documents\Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X\Profiles_settings_0.1.525.ini

For example:

[Video]

width = 800
height = 600
refreshrate = 60
multisample = 2
windowed = false

---------------- or -----------------------

[Video]
width = 1024
height = 768
refreshrate = 60
multisample = 2
windowed = true

---------------------------------------------

Valid values :
width x height : 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024 (basically the resolutions that you have available in windows in Display Settings)
refreshrate : 60, 75 ..
multisample : 0, 2, 4, 8
windowed : true, false

Sorry mate, but your solution to lack of DX 10 fuctionality in Hawx is simply wrong.

First, the game doesn't even show up in Vista game explorer.

Second, even if you add the game manually (http://vge.editor.googlepages.com/)you still can't access DX 10.

Third, the real problem with the Steam version is that fact that there is only one Hawx executible file application in your game folder and it only launches your game with DX 9 enabled. In other words, the Hawx_dx10 executable is missing entirely. And before you ask, yes, all the other Directx 10 dll files are present and it does not help to update with the latest version of Directx runtime.

Fourth, you can enable Directx 10 functionality by adding the Hawx_Dx10 (from the PC retail version) executible application file to your Hawx game folder as described here:

I am enjoying HAWX and am impressed with the experience that I have had this evening. I am using a CH products setup with CH Fighterstick, Pro-Throttle and Pro-pedals. I did find that I needed to enter the CH Control Manager software and setup a new combined profile and use that, but all I had to do then was assign the buttons/devices in HAWX and it works great on my Win XP Pro setup, including my Pro-Pedals, for the rudder. I guess I will set up a custom setup in the Control Manager later.

Anyway back to my missions.

I know I have seen a lot of PC players posting but myself and others play on the XBOX360.

I personally have been having troubles with the achievements unlocking as they should.

For example I have beat the game numerous times but have only gotten the Achievements for Hard and Elite.

With that in mind I am still missing the Normal achievement and numerous mission achievements as well.

Is UBI going to release a patch for us to resolve this issue?

How about some sort of workaround so I can play this game with my X-52?
If its plugged in the game just Dumps at the ESRB warning. If I unplug it the game runs just fine....I am on the latest drivers and software for it. In fact if I leave my Saitek Pro Pedals plugged in I can actually access the Joystick part of the Control menu so its most definitely something to do with the X-52, which I might add is "Supposed" to be supported.(Yes I also realise my pedals aren't properly supported because this game only accepts one input device)

My TrackIR works well(yes I broke down and played it today with my Keyboard but didnt even get thru the first mission before I gave up flying with that awkward method.

I am not alone with this dump at startup issue so I seriously hope this issue is being resolved as I didn't buy this game to play with my keyboard I bought it because it was supposed to support peripherals I own and expected to be able to use.

OH yes and of course while I appreciate you posting a fix for the Steam version(which I have) It doesn't work. There is a posted workaround for that that does work but I'm not willing to mess up my game at this point considering I'm not playing it anyway until the joystick issues are resolved(Im SURE I will have the deadzone issue as well....)

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!

Please, as fast as humanly possible, fix the "SCREEN GOING BLACK ISSUE!" There are MANY people, who are running Vista 32, with all drivers updated, etc, etc (ie., good computers)....who are experiencing the screen going black upon starting the game. My screen goes black when I start BOTH, DX9 and DX10 versions of the game in Vista 32. In both cases, I start the game and I see nothing but I can hear the intro splash, the intro movie, etc. The 1.01 patch did nothing to fix this because I installed and ran it BOTH with, and without the 1.01 patch. Please, as soon as possible, could you make a patch to get the game to run in Vista 32? Many people, like me, paid $50 for the digital download version and were looking forward to playing it, to no avail. I planned my 3 hour download from Direct2Drive, but alas, could NOT play my new game. There are many people that are truly waiting for a patch so we can play the game. This would seem to warrant the highest level of attention and rectification from Ubisoft. Thanks in advance for your help; many of us need it bad....and with much haste!!

Hi

I am too having this problem with the dmp file, i have had it with the demo and now the full game. All i get is the intro, then a ping and then a black screen. I ahve to Ctrl + Alt + Del to get out of it.
I have posted numerous posts within these forums and nothing has been responded by anyone from Ubisoft !!! I am a developer by trade, i create web applications and i think this is digusting from Ubisoft to release a game that causes this problem and even more of a disgrace that no one will acknowledge there is a problem, i could never release software in this kind of state, Ubisofts QA team should be sacked !!
Im running it on a Lap Top
SONY VAIO VGN-FW21Z
ATI RADEON 3650 HD
4GB RAM
CENTRINO 2 2.53 GHZ.

Ive installed the latest drivers for my graphics card and the patch and still i cant play it.

This takes care of lack of Dx10 and lack of access to online coop campaign games for steam users:

http://forums.steampowered.com...wthread.php?t=828010 (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=828010).

No patch is necessary and makes me wonder if the steam users already got their patch in the original version.

Pleas update the first entry as it is just plain wrong as the game does not show up in games explorer. It makes no difference if you add it either because the steam version is missing the DX10 executable file.

Today Steam added in a Hawx dx10 exe file into our game file. It has failed to give anybody directx 10 functionality. I tried to run it from the steam console, it ran dx 9. I tried to run it from the game folder location, it ran dx 9. I added it to games explorer in Vista SP1 and it did not provide any option for dx10 and did not run dx10 only dx9. Please visit the steampowered. com forums. I already sent in tickets to Ubi.com and got no response. I sent in tickets to Steam and they said they no about the problem and are working on it, and today we got the file add it but it did not function. Please assist.

For all the Steam Users trying to launch it in DX10 mode you have to right click your HAWX Icon in the Games list and choose "Launch DirectX10 version"

I'm still not playing it tho because it still dumps with my HOTAS plugged in but now in DX10 mode it crashes my GFX drivers(Cat 9.3s)during the performance test, which is all I am will to run right now until the joystick issue is resolved(or should I say NOT run as now it just crashes my GFX drivers in DX10...)

I get atkdisp.dll error. I have played this game fine when first installed, then next day simply wont run more then 5 minutes before black screen, vpu recover, then try to quit game and it BSOD to atkdisp.dll.

Other thing try to go multiplayer, need to create account as my ubi login password doesnt seem to work and as soon as I do this or video test it does the same black screen vpu recover exit BSOD thing. any ideas? I am running vpu recover, gamer OSD, vivid, cat 9.3, smartdoctor

I finally had the time to uninstall the game, and delete all the files off my pc. I downloaded it again yesterday from Steam and this is my observations:

1. I can't get DX10 through Steam no matter what I do. (Maybe I am screwing it up?).
2. When I run the Steam version I can't get into multiplayer games for the most part through online Ubi.com. Sometimes versus, never coop.
3. If I try to run my game through Garena.com with the Steam version files (even with the update) I can't get to any LAN multiplayer at all.

My fix:

4. I removed the new Steam HAWX DX10 file and downloaded and inserted the retail HAWX DX10 file .
5. I went to Garena.com and set a free account.
6. After you have installed double click on the Garena desktop icon.
7. Go to the HAWX Lobby. Find a room (like European) that has players in it and choose settings.
8. In settings use browse and select HAWX DX10. Choose okay and it will ask you to run in the compatibility mode, say okay.
9. Start your game with the button in lower right corner.(do not start game through steam console or your HAWX desktop icon).
10.Once in game choose or make your profile.
11.Choose Versus
12.Choose LAN.
13.The server window should give you both COOP and Deathmatch games. If not exit out and re-enter through the LAN option. Also, you can exit the game, go back through Garena (from your menu bar) and choose another room (like European (2)).

You will know if you are doing this right when your game starts up without having to use the Steam launch promopt. You know it is working correctly when you don't have to enter your Ubi.com username and password. Because you are running the retail version of the game even though you bought the steam version.

I hope this helps.

(I realize I posted similar fixes here and here. However, I found that the Steam automatic update ganked my multiplayer functionality because it overwrote the retail HAWX DX10 file.)

Please note that I can't get Garena.com to run in DX9 anymore because that option when selected (by setting the HAWX icon in the game path) because it starts the Steam version. If you can get a hold of the retail Hawx_DX9 executible and put it in there it will probably work.

Anyone with any further fixes, clarifications, ideas, are welcome. Good luck, I hope this hopes some of you. I don't believe it will help the dmp issue at all. Also, some of you will have poor performance with DX10.

I am getting a bug with DX10 where whenever I run the DX10 version it complains that the file "d3d10_1.dll" is missing. At first the DX9 version had the same complaint for d3d9_1.dll, but a reinstall of DX9 fixed that. A reinstall of DX10 makes no difference to either version (DX9 still works DX10 doesn't. I also can't find the files it's going on about anyway.). I also don't have the Steam version. Any suggestions?

The mission unlocks/achievements/trophies system is designed to prevent you from getting the unlocks/achievements/trophies in the following situations:

# If you don’t have single-player progress up to the respective mission (ex: If you got up to mission 6 in singleplayer and then you join a friend to play directly on mission 9 and complete it, you will still not get the achievement/trophy/unlock for mission 9)- this is mainly to prevent users from getting an advanced aircraft without making a normal campaign progression;

# If you played less than 50% of the mission (Ex: you join an in-progress co-op mission that lasts for 15 minutes total, but you only play the last 5 minutes, you won’t get the achievement/trophy/unlock for the mission) - this was designed to prevent users from joining in the last possible moment just for the purpose of getting a free achievement/trophy/unlock."

Absolute tosh.

1) I have completed every mission in co-op and not received the team player acheivement, but had the unlocks in game. Same goes for a whole bunch of other multiplayer acheivements. Got the unlocks in game, but no acheivements.

2) On my first playthrough in single player NONE of the acheivements unlocked.

3) Ubi support specifically stated to me that this was a known bug that was being looked into.

All in all, Ubi are clearly just insulting everyone's intelligence.

I'm chalking all this nonsense up as another Far Cry 2 debarcle (PC version has been broken since release date).

In any other industry, you'd be run across hot coal for selling people defective merchandise and not rectifying it.

This is perhaps the WORST game I have ever purchased, I have never known a game to not want to run on a brand new machine before!!!

I've exhausted countless avenues and spent lots of time trawling these forums for solutions. I have tried EVERYTHING to make the game boot without the dump black screen/ubisoft crash. I can't get this game to work, this is totally unacceptable. I have lost £35 as a result!

1. Buck up your ideas and fix your games before you rush to release them bug-ridden.
2. Provide a more sufficient level of help and advice.
3. Provide an update that actually fixes this problem.
4. Fix the multi-player issues which I have read about, but have not yet had the joy in experiencing such a nightmare myself.
5. Reimburse me fully of 35 Great British Pounds sterling.
6. At least FSX starts up!

Ever see a englisch forum?? I mean Almost all are speaking/writing englisch, why are you talking german? I'm Dutch but you don't see me writing in Dutch... Ik kan dat natuurlijk wel doen maar dan zal ik bijna geen antwoord krijgen.

Das Spiel geht genauso bei viele. Ich glauube es ist ein Bug. Leider, UBI hat es noch nicht repariert.

I'm still having problems with trying to play the game on dx10.

Its the same missing d3d10_1.dll problem.
I have the retail version of the game and not the steam version. I am running vista and I have installed the latest dx many times.

Can anyone help please? It seems there has been a solution but i cant find it.

Does anyone have a fix for the problem of automatic rocket launches while flying toward your waypoints? I think only one person mentioned this problem early on and I haven't found a fix for it yet. By the time you get to your objective you're almost out of missiles due to this glitch.

well tonight i have had the game crash twice on me. and i know how it did it to. since i did it the same way both times.

while in coop in a clan m8 server i went from assisted to unassisted mode real quick it crash to a black screen.

and going to task manager to kill the game was the only way to see my desk top.

has anyone else seen this happen to them yet? i do have trickir3 pro with the newest driver for it and fraps and everest running at the time and joytokey all running when it happens.


i will try to switch each off to see which 1 if any helps if any.

I also had that happen to me a few times in the campaign while trying to get some of the Off Mode achievements but this was before the patch.
Seeing as I hate Off Mode and never use it, I never really thought anything of it...

well so far it doesnt matter what i turn off. it still does it. it seem to be either the x45 or the game, and so far i think it is the game.

since i know ubi track record which is not the greatest yet. and this is going back 6yrs so yeah i know what i am talking about.

with just the game and nothing else running. it still will crash out. and another thing to add.

is i do not have the x45 driver install either since vista driver seem to work well yet. since the other games i play that use this same controller will work.

and with no problem at all or game crashing out either. so i am moving toward the game is at the root of the cause at this point in time.

and yes i am playing in dx10 mode as well. i can get it to crash out every time now just by switching from the 2 modes.

i do know before this 1.02 patch it would not do this at all. and i would have everything running to,fraps,everest,joytokey,xfire,teamspeak,trackIR3 pro. with no game crashing out like it does now.

well this time i decide to try and install the driver for the x45. to see if it made a difference at all.

well i can say it didnt at all since i tried after i installed the driver and made sure the controls all worked fine, which they did.

so i started up into sp mode and as i was flying into a mission it went into a black screen.

and that was it and had the other hawxs exe in the task bar. so the only thing i have not tried yet . is a full reinstall of the game and patch it up with the 1.02 patch which i have right.

not sure if it will work or not. wondering if anyone as gotten past this yet and gotten rid of this dam crash dump yet?

or are we waiting on ubi to fix there fix once again? if so i guess it be awhile then till i can play this.

before i forget this is all in DX10 mode BTW. i have not tried it in DX9 mode.

maybe for kicks and giggles i might ..

There have been a number of posts where people have said that one thing or another had helped with black screens, DX10 issues, dumps and connection problems (not always the fault of HAWX) but others have also posted that the things that helped *some* people didn't always help everyone. You might search the threads and try the things that you haven't already tried. Hopefully the next patch will fix more of the bugs. Good luck. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

YMMV...

well it looks like that the DX9 doesnt suffer from this crash like the DX10 does. so i guess if i want to play this i would have to suffer and play it in dx9.

which sucks cause i like the eye candy that dx10 brings out of it. but it is that or just dont play this at all till the next patch. which will be when ever they get around to it i guess.

or well i guess there isnt no true way of fixing this our self since it is the game over all.

well i do have so many other games to play yet anyways. to bad there wasnt anyone that could have help out here but i guess there wasnt anyone.

oh well that happend.

Yes, DX9 is one of the things that some people had success with (not everyone), others are using DX10 though.

Hello I´ve got a problem with the grafics. The Text in the Game Menu is unreadable, because only a few letters are clear. The others are replaced by white boxes, etc.
The other problem is, that the objects on the ground (buildings etc.) are just a thin stack of pixel. Nothing on the ground can be described. It´s all a mass of pixel, textures etc. No buildings, just strange textures with sharp edges. The clouds are also black or whit thin textures. The aircrafts etc. are perfectly displayed. How can i solve the problem?
