Renegade Installation Guide
Video guide to install the steam version


Written guide with 3 install methods
1. Install the game
Method 1: If you still have your CD/DVD, a CD/DVD reader and your serial key, use them to install Renegade

Method 2: If you don't have your CD/DVD and/or CD/DVD reader but still have your serial key, you can get the disc images to install Renegade from https://downloads.cncfps.com/Renegade/Game/ (Ones that end in .iso)

Method 3: If you have neither of those, you can buy the game:
- bundled in The Ultimate Collection (17 C&C games) from the EA app / origin: They apparently made it harder to find on origin  so you need to install the EA app and search for "The Ultimate Collection" to buy it
- bundled in The Ultimate Collection (17 C&C games) from steam:      https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/39394/Command__Conquer_The_Ultimate_Collec tion/
- If you have EA play (EA play costs 3,99 € per month for access to a large amount of games), the ultimate collection is included! It's a cheap way of trying out Renegade. You can access EA play through EA play or on origin: direct steam link https://store.steampowered.com/app/2229890/Command__Conquer_Renegade/. Beware: this is a monthly subscription, if you want a one time purchase then buy the ultimate collection

There's more info about the ultimate collection here: https://www.ea.com/games/command-and-conquer
More info about Renegade on steam: https://www.renegadeforums.com/index.php?t=msg&th=41281&start=0&


2. Install the TT Patch
Install the TT patch from https://www.tiberiantechnologies.org/Downloads . It is considered essential to play Renegade nowadays. It activates online gameplay, adds widescreen support and adds a lot of bug fixes
Beware: the latest TT patch no longer runs on Windows XP

3. Launch Renegade
Launch renegade by double clicking the shortcut on your desktop. On first launch you may get the Renegade config like this:
/index.php?t=getfile&id=15451&private=0
you can see on this image I have a double screen (2 monitor lines). Click on display 1 and configure it as you see fit, then hit "ok" and then relaunch Renegade. You may need to run renegade as administrator the first time to save these settings.

Once you get in the Renegade game menu:
Click multiplay internet
/index.php?t=getfile&id=15447&private=0
and then gamespy.
/index.php?t=getfile&id=15448&private=0
If you installed the TT patch correctly, you will get a list of servers you can join.
/index.php?t=getfile&id=15450&private=0
On first launch it is recommended to go to the options and set a nickname
/index.php?t=getfile&id=15449&private=0

If you have trouble setting Renegade up, post in here and we will help you out!

Known steam related bug:
If you have a problem with "rubber banding" or you cannot move when you join an online game with the steam version, then do this:
- join an online server
- hit F8, a command prompt will show up in the top left corner
- type: net_update_rate 30

this will set your net update rate to a value different from 0, which is a bug in the steam release.

In case you're like me and no longer have a gaming PC. I have Renegade running smoothly on my M1 Macbook Pro using Parallels (I paid for one time license instead of a subscription).

Also I haven't personally tried this but VMware Fusion is free and might be able to run it as well.

I’ve been running renegade on windows for almost 10 years.   Apple computers have a program in the apps folder called “bootcamp”

You can set up a partition and dual boot windows 10 on your mac, it’s free and works flawlessly.

I’ve never had any issues with it.

Bootcamp is not compatible with modern Macs (Apple silicon CPUs).

These instructions worked like a charm exactly as they were written; thanks Goztow!

Beware: for the next update, TT patch will require you to run Windows 10 or 11.
Any hint on when we can expect this to happen? Later this year? Next year? Around which month etc...

edit: only asking because my Renegade computer runs on Win 7 Pro.

Pretty sure we're not moving 4.x to require 10/11, 5.x might require 10/11 though.

You can actually get win 10 for free if you have a legit 7 install just by running the windows upgrade if I recall correctly:

Renegade also runs smoothly using CrossOver on MacOS and Linux. No windows license needed.
