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.
Get Tortoise SVN from the link above and install it anywhere you like.
This program will check-out the Renegade Coop test client once we are ready to do so.
Step 1: Create destination folder
Create a folder somewhere called "RenegadeCoopTest" (not inside the Program Files or Program Files (x86) folder!!)
Step 2: SVN Checkout
Right click the RenegadeCoopTest folder you created in Step 1 and choose "SVN Checkout"
Step 3: SVN Details
On the next screen enter the link to our Renegade Coop Test SVN which is listed below and press OK
SVN Url: Svn.allnoobs.com:777
Step 4: Enter Login Details
SVN User: test
SVN Pass: testing
At the next prompt you will be asked to enter your username and password.
For username you enter "test" and password "testing", also make sure you tick the option "Save authentication".
Now press OK and it will start download the game files:
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 220.127.116.11:31337 +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 18.104.22.168:31337 +netplayername "Nickname" /multi -launcher
Remember to change Nickname into your actual name, without spaces.
Now run and install the vcredist_x86.exe and then the DXSETUP.exe found in the "AllNoobs\Prerequisites" folder.
Run wwconfig to set your resolution options and such. Click your Graphics card in the window when doing so.
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 :)
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
