Default Warthoggers: Updated firmware released

http://ts.thrustmaster.com/eng/index...&pid=311&cid=1

I haven't tried this - frankly because I'm not sure why I should, but FYI..

If anyone digs up a real changelog for it (other than it just pushing the firmware versions up) it would be good to share that too. It might be inside the download itself perhaps, haven't checked yet.

All it says on the link above:

Changes :
Includes Firmware versions 10 (Joystick) & 18 (Throttle)
Protection of the flash write through HID to avoid potential flash corruption

I suspect the last line of your post is the meat of the matter.

"flash corruption" would be at least some of the dead stick/throttle problems.

I've updated mine. Everything still works.

Given that they specifically say your stick must be properly recognized in device manager and game controllers before using the firmware updater....I'd say 'yes'.

thanks for sharing this. I will check my firmware version first before running this upgrade. My serial is in the mid 2000s.

Thanks for the heads up topdog. Just updated mine, and everything seems working fine. But why do I have to touch something that is working? what's life without risks, heh?

@ Teej according to this post I thought that nothing is 'downloaded' to flash memory in the device. Is this somewhat related, or I totally missed the point?

I stand by what I said - the profile isn't "donwloaded" to the stick like it was with the Cougar.

Clearly something with the system has the potential to corrupt the firmware however. Whether that's the throttle (or stick) corrupting its own firmware during the initialization process when they're powered on (by plugging in to a computer) or TARGET writing something out there that I'm not aware of (which, as it stands today, I doubt but wouldn't swear isn't happening), I don't know.
