Essential improvements[edit]

Skip intro videos[edit]

The startup movies, while skippable, can get annoying some times. Luckily it is possible to disable them.

Fix Disabling Intro MoviesLink

Open HawkenEngine.ini with a text editor and find the following entries:

[FullScreenMovie]
bForceNoMovies=FALSE
bShouldStopMovieAtEndOfLoadMap=TRUE
StartupMovies=Splash_legal
StartupMovies=Splash_nVidia
StartupMovies=Splash_meteor
StartupMovies=Spash_adhesive
StartupMovies=Splash_hawken
StartupMovies=Splash_loading
SkippableMovies=Splash_nVidia
SkippableMovies=Splash_meteor
SkippableMovies=Spash_adhesive
SkippableMovies=Splash_hawken
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Main
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Prosk
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Bazaar
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Origin
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Uptown
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Facility
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-FrontLine
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Training
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-LastEco
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Wreckage
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-LastEcoWinter
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-Bunker
LoadMapMovies=UI_Loading-FrontLineCoOp

Type "//" infront of every line that begins with "StartupMovies", it should look like this:

[FullScreenMovie]
bForceNoMovies=FALSE
bShouldStopMovieAtEndOfLoadMap=TRUE
//StartupMovies=Splash_legal
//StartupMovies=Splash_nVidia
//StartupMovies=Splash_meteor
//StartupMovies=Spash_adhesive
//StartupMovies=Splash_hawken
//StartupMovies=Splash_loading

Fix Disabling Intro Movies - alternate methodLink

Another method to achieve this is to add -nomoviestartup in the launch options of the game in Steam.[1]

  1. In Steam, right-click on Hawken and select Properties
  2. Click on Set Launch Options
  3. Put -nomoviestartup in the field and click OK

Automatic Login[edit]

The game requires the player to type his password each time it's launched. This can be avoided using the launch properties in Steam.[2]

Fix Automatic LoginLink

  1. In Steam, right-click on Hawken and select Properties
  2. Click on Set Launch Options
  3. Put -login="youremail" -password="yourpassword" in the field. Put your own information between the quotes, and click OK
