The first version of the engine was known as W3D ("Westwood 3D") was highly modified version of SurRender 3D engine, developed by Hybrid Graphics Ltd. Westwood used W3D for Emperor: Battle for Dune and updated for Command & Conquer: Renegade.

After Westwood was bought by Electronic Arts the engine was further updated for Command & Conquer: Generals, and renamed to SAGE. The rendering part remains nearly identical to the W3D engine, but most other elements have been redesigned from the ground up.

The SAGE engine allows for dynamic lighting that casts realistic shadows and realistic reflections on most objects. High quality visual effects are now possible with the SAGE engine powering games. One example of a unique effect is the stop-motion camera. Blow up a gas station, for example, and the action will freeze in mid-explosion, and the camera will quickly pan around the environment, revealing pieces of debris and shrapnel suspended in the air, before the action promptly resumes. The SAGE engine also allows games to take place during different times of the day, with realistic lighting and shadow changes, etc.

A new, highly modified version is now used to power Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars.

Downloading Files
Now press OK and it will start download the game files:

User Posted Image

Download Complete?
When the SVN finishes downloading the files you need to create a shortcut to the game.exe on your desktop for example.
Goto the Properties of this shortcut and in the Target-box you enter the following for example:

D:\RenegadeCoopTest\game.exe +connect 94.23.211.212:31337 +netplayername "Nickname" /multi -launcher

If you have your folder in the C drive at C:\RenegadeCoopTest the target-box would look like this:

C:\RenegadeCoopTest\game.exe +connect 94.23.211.212:31337 +netplayername "Nickname" /multi -launcher

Remember to change Nickname into your actual name, without spaces.

Prerequisites
Now run and install the vcredist_x86.exe and then the DXSETUP.exe found in the "AllNoobs\Prerequisites" folder.

Configure
Run wwconfig to set your resolution options and such. Click your Graphics card in the window when doing so.

Play!
Now double click your shortcut and it will join our server where you can play with other testers and players.
Note that sometimes we have to restart the server and it may be unavailable sometimes, though it's online most of the time.
Also note that we sometimes update maps and code files on the server which means your client will attempt to download them automatically, this may take a min :)


SVN Update
If you want to make sure you have all the latest files simply right click your RenegadeCoopTest folder and choose "SVN Update".
This will then download the latest files from our SVN Repository.

Thanks and have fun
:)

It's funny how some trolls are going after our standalone mod ( Indiedb.com ) saying it is a pirated version.
Although it is true we use some assets from the original game most of the content we added is created by our developers. The no-cd thing is required for ANY standalone mod based on the SAGE engine to be able to run. This includes the releases of them guys that are now bashing this release @ TSR and AR. Even APB and TCW use it.

You have to buy a game that has this engine. After that, you decompile it and use it. You have to get permission from EA though, otherwise you could run into some legal issues, however.

1. buy a game that uses SAGE engine.
Examples: C&C3, RA3, C&C Generals
2. learn how to code with the .INI files
3. if you are going to make a game with this engine, make sure that the textures, models, gameplay, is completely different
4. if you have a copyright problem with the engine,
just make a total conversion mod

I think EA should give up their SAGE because it sucks and they don't have originality

Hello! I need to learn how I can open up the official SP missions from TW in world builder. So that I can look at the scripting and stuff. Please let me know!

There should be a file with the name Maps or something. Open it with XCC Mixer, extract and open using world builder. You may need to go inside every directory inside the game's folder before you find it. In C&C4; it's in Data
