New hard drive, 4.0 takes me to Renegade game options screen. [message #477528] Thu, 29 November 2012 23:23 Go to next message

edit- I installed the Tiberian Technologies client first.

It tells me to put in the disk, after I do, videos play and it takes me to the game options- Single Player/Multiplay Online/LAN/Practice/etc.

When I click on Multiplay it takes me to Gamespy/Westwood.

I tried Renegade Resurrection (what I used to use), but the game always crashes at startup :-/

Any help or ideas? Thanks in advance.

So what is wrong? Browsing through those menus sounds normal to me. Crashes with resurrection are also normal, RR should not be installed together with TT (TT includes most of RR's important features anyway.)

Currently, I have only TT installed. When I click on the TT launcher, it shows me the same two videos each time. Then it takes me to an orange screen and when I click "Multiplay Internet" I get the options: "Westwood Online" and "Gamespy"

Are you telling me that the TT launcher is just another way to access xwis?

The launcher runs, but is not visible. It just checks for updates and if none are available it starts the game. We once had the idea to make a (visible) TT launcher to download additional maps and skins and such, but that was cancelled because it took too much time.

Ok, well I registered on xwis and have tried to use the westwood online option, but it says "no game servers found."

I will try renlist and edit this post in a few minutes.

Did you log in to the xwis control panel, get your password and create a name?

If you have trouble connecting to westwood online and only see the empty game list, make sure to read the "message of the day" dialog you get right after connecting. It will tell you what is wrong (invalid password, invalid serial, etc.). You will only get this the first time you connect to WOL after you start Renegade, so you may need to restart Renegade and attempt to connect to westwood online again if it does not show up.

I bet there are a few players that try ren multiplayer for the first time, only to find out they cant play, and lack of instructions doesn't help.

WOL is completely screwed up these days... back before XWIS it actually used to tell you when your password / username were incorrect, instead of just hiding it away in the MOTD everyone just clicks away without reading to get to the server list.

Why XWIS can't just implement the login system properly is beyond me...

Clone Degeneration. They didn't implement the login system properly when the real thing was around and it was easier to determine how it worked. Now that the real thing is gone, a proper implementation is far more difficult because it requires reverse engineering the client itself as opposed to just snooping on the text protocol it uses. Any clones of XWIS would likely be degenerate in other ways.

Even if it didn't work as well as the original implementation it would still be better than the current situation where any theoretical new player wouldn't have a clue how to actually create an account on XWIS or figure out how to debug login problems.

Neither the GSA nor WOL ingame options work properly at the moment... pretty bad state of affairs really.
