September 30th is here!
The day you have all waited for has finally arrived! After over two years of planning, building the mod, and updating our fans, the moment we've all worked so hard for is finally here. Our passion for C&C Renegade has been channeled, and manifested into this great project, Renegade X. Today is a great day for our mod and our community, as it marks a new beginning for Command & Conquer Renegade fans everywhere, a fulfillment of our promise, and the start of a new generation of C&C FPS gaming.
Today is the day where we release the very first incarnation of Renegade X. It is our first beta, which features the basis of C&C Renegade's game mode and units. It's the very first of many public releases, given to the public to ensure a stable and exciting full release of the mod in the future. Renegade X 0.35 does not contain everything the mod will eventually offer, as it is an early beta, but it is your chance to get an early taste of Renegade X, and an opportunity for you to share your opinions, ideas, and help us in the process of fixing glitches.
The Renegade X team plans on releasing patches after each beta release, to fix any problems we may encounter as the open beta ensues. New content is also on the way.

To anyone that has ever doubted that this day would ever come...in your face!

How to Install Renegade X Beta Version 0.35:
To install the mod, run the "Renegade-X 0.35 Beta.exe" file. A self extractor will ask you to where you wish to install the mod. You must install Renegade X in "Documents/My Games/Unreal Tournament 3", otherwise it will not work. Afterwords, you must manually create a ut3.exe shortcut - this can be placed anywhere on your computer. Then, right click on that new shortcut, click properties, and edit the Target: place "-mod=..\Renegade -solomod" at the end of the target, minus the quotations. Renegade X should now successfully be installed.
For those of you who plan on downloading the mod, or are interested in knowing how to play, we've released the Renegade X Basic Tutorial. It briefly explains the basics of our mod's game mode C&C mode, for those of you who either haven't played C&C Renegade online, or simply need a refresher. We highly recommend you watch it before playing our mod.
You can check that out here: Borgamers.com
How to Play" Document:
If you'd like to view a more detailed text version of how to play the mod, there is a .txt file included in the download rar. You can also read that here: Renegade-x.com
How to Join a server:
Renegade X Beta Version 0.35 is a multiplayer-only mod. Although you can play the mod in "Instant Action" mode offline, no AI are currently available. That feature will be released in a later beta. Therefore, you need to be connected to the internet to play with this mod with others. There are two ways to join a server:
1) Load "Renegade-X.exe" in the Renegade folder after you install the mod. It will launch a server client program, where you will see the available servers listed. Refresh the list if necessary. Simply set up your screen name at the bottom of the client, click on the server you wish to join, and click the "Join Server" button. Make sure the file path under "UT3.exe Location" is correct before joining the server.
*NOTE: The server client does not always show the right amount of players. This will be fixed asap.
2) If for whatever reason you are unable to join a server with the "Renegade-X.exe" server client program, there is a secondary way to join a Renegade X server. Launch your Renegade X shortcut, login to your multiplayer account, click "Multiplayer", then click "Join Game". Once on that screen, press F10. This should launch a console. Then, simply type the word "open" in the console (no quotations), followed by a space, and the IP of the server you wish to join. Then hit enter, and it should take you straight to the server. Make sure the server IP is correct - you can find the IPs to the official servers on Renegade-x.com
Please make sure the mod is fully and properly installed before attempting to join a server. If you have any questions or problems, please do not hesitate to voice your problems at our official forums.
