385w ago - Nearly a month ago CJPC posted a Warhawk: Take Two PS3 Dev article.. since then a lot has happened, but due to finals and the holidays most of the resident Devs are too busy to update the news with their progress.

Recently ggparallel has shared the following for those interested- to quote:

Warhawk, is a game for PS3 GAMEOS. The retail version on Blue-ray allows you to send pkg via fake Web server via patches.

Howto under MAC OS:

Create a script that binds the various IPs of Sony Web server for example in MACOSX:
# where en0 is the interface you make the Web server listen
echo echo starting en0 aliases for PS3 networks
echo echo adding Warhawk http server port 80
/sbin/ifconfig $int inet netmask
alias /sbin/ifconfig $int inet netmask alias
# where en0 is the interface you make the Web server listen
echo echo removing en0 aliases for PS3 networks
echo echo removing Warhawk http server port 80
/sbin/ifconfig $int inet netmask
-alias /sbin/ifconfig $int inet netmask -alias

Then add in Apache in file ports.conf (Apache 2.x) the following directives:

Listen Listen

Create also the following directory in Apache:


for example if your Apache is under /var/www the directory will be: /var/www/tppkg/np/BCES00008/BCES00008_T0/168972f15d67ab0a/

The file the application expect is EP9000-BCES00008_00-WARHAWKPATCHV110-PE.pkg and there is no check on size.

Restart Apache. Powerup the PS3, insert Warhawk Blue-ray and make it update.

Few notes:

- Otheros.self for example does not work
- Normal pkgs does not work correctly (klicense?)
- You can get data installed of pkg sometimes but it start asking to clean Warhawk data and after restart the game.
- After starting the game if you click on online it checks for a manifest.cfg file on the update server of Sony via http.
- The path it expect is: /medius-patch/warhawk-prod/warhawk/r016/manifest.cfg


- Using the file on r16 from sony make not download anything
- Using an old cfg (for example the one from r15 gives an error), maybe the data is retrived via ssl (on the Sony network side)
