Anyone know?

hifi from cncnet.org wrote an online server list webpage and a tool that adds support for Renegade:// URI links which loads renegade and connects to a server ip+port supplied in the Renegade:// URI. He did that 3 years ago.

https://github.com/hifi/renlauncher

https://cncnet.org/renegade-servers

It doesn't show any servers as the GSA clone master list URL needs to be updated.

If we can host a download to the game on a third party server like we do with Dune 2000 (which is abandonware and no one even knows who owns the rights to the game), then we can add a menu item on the cncnet.org frontpage for the C&C renegade server list and link the download on the server list page.

It could boost player numbers quite a bit, the cncnet.org site gets a lot of visits and is in the top 3 results if you search for C&C game names on Google for older C&C games up to and including Yuri's Revenge.

I'm just wondering about the legality of it.

You can't really call a game abandonware yet if it's still officialy sold by the rights holder. In that sense, Dune is abandonware but C&C (except Sole Survivor) isn't. Would be nice though if it could happen.

Professional moron. Nice to meet ya.

Yeah C&C Renegade is still sold by EA in the Command And Conquer Ultimate Collection so its not abandonware.
