Never thought I'd see the day...

EDIT:
It seems at the moment you can't buy the individual games on their own unless you have to pay a subscription.
BUT if you buy the Ultimate Collection for a one-off cost, your steam account then gets all the C&C games as individual games ready to choose to download Big Grin No EA account nor subscription required!

I've just uninstalled my original Renegade and am currently reinstalling it via Steam to test what the experience is like, will report back.

The vanilla experience downloading and installing from Steam:

  • You miss the funky installer experience, ah well.
  • It installs version 1.037
  • The installation directory is now C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Command & Conquer Renegade\
  • The desktop shortcut has been updated to HD

  • On first launch, Steam gives you this:

  • Renegade Config allows all resolutions, but the game doesn't handle it great, click on these thumbnails to see:

  • Choosing WOL shows you the empty XWIS lobby. Choosing GameSpy takes you to the unmodded GameSpy menu which obviously doesn't work. As such, vanilla installs of Renegade at the moment don't see any online servers, getting them to run the TT patch will fix this and a world of other issues.
I quit the game then downloaded the latest TT installer (4.8.1)
It instantly detects the correct Steam directory, does it's thing but advised me that my serial number is invalid. As a test, I left it blank and everything worked regardless.

This is going to be an issue, as Steam may not accept the community-made scripts as legitimate and anyone buying Renegade from Steam will just see the dust and echoes of no servers online

Yeah I hope EA make the TT patch an official update so that people get all the fixes/widescreen/online automatically.

But even if they don't, all is not lost.

  • The reviews section, including the top-liked review on Steam points out the TT patch
  • The game's Steam forum has a few threads directing people to the TT patch
  • The game's Guides section has a step-by-step picture guide on where to get the patch and how to install it, as well as the classic tweaks (fps for example)

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.

This luckily shouldn't be needed anymore after our last patch.
