I have TFD. I have installed WOLAPI. I can get to the server browser. It shows nothing, says none can be found. FAQ says to check hosts file and check a certain bit; if that bit is not right, to put it in this forum and see if someone can help.

# Copyright (c) 1993-2009 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

# localhost name resolution is handled within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost


ty looking forward to reliving some old memories with this awesome game

Have you installed scripts.dll 4.0? I don't believe the hosts file is necessary if you do that.

i don't think so. how do i go about doing that? last time I installed renegade on a pc, I remember jumping through a lot of hoops.

how active is online? can you usually find a full server?

Fully patches and updates Renegade from a clean DVD installation or anything else without any intermediate steps required. Much less hoop jumping involved.

As for servers, I don't know, it's a while since I played online.

There is a post about installing Renegade with 4.0.
http://www.renegadeforums.com/index.php?t=msg&th=39331&start=0&rid=2 3454

It's still not stickied. Goztow would do it but he left a while ago.
That said, maybe another mod could do it already? xD
