I've mentioned some things about Renegade X before, but only on the side of other topics, never in it's own, so that's what this is for. What is Renegade X? How does it play? When will it be released? The team has made an announcement about it (the latest of many), so I'll post that announcement here (I have permission) and let it speak for itself. It should answer those questions, and more.


We've got an exciting update for you guys!

List of Update Items:

1. Release date information available!
2. Nod Obelisk
3. GDI Advanced Guard Tower
4. Refinery
5. Chaingun
6. Nuclear Strike Beacon
7. Gunner
8. Purchase Terminal System Layout
9. Nod Buggy
10. GDI Weapons Factory
11. Nuclear Missile


The first Renegade X beta will be released September 30th 2009!

That\'s right! Renegade X is coming soon to a computer near you. The Renegade X open beta will begin on September 30th of this year! We, Totem Arts, have been working hard on getting this mod to its followers for the past couple years, and the time is finally drawing near. As of now, all of our first release content has been finished, and the team is going forward with polishing this project.

And let me tell you, it plays beautifully. Earlier today our team, testers and VIPs got together to play a game of Renegade X\'s current build. The testers were astonished, as the mod runs smoothly and almost perfectly, with intense gameplay and action. There are still a series of glitches that need to be fixed, features to be adjusted and assets that must be looked over within the next month, but we believe the mod has reached the point in which our fans must playtest and give appropriate feedback.

The beta will feature all of the following:

Teams:

The Global Defense Initiative: A globalized and multinational military task force, colloquially known and referred to as GDI, the Global Defense Initiative originated from a secret military alliance between the most industrialized and advanced countries under the United Nations umbrella.

The Brotherhood of Nod: An ancient and secret society that allegedly predates most of civilization\'s recorded history, the Brotherhood of Nod represents a globalized as well as a futuristic cult, and a network of militant cells worldwide.

Buildings:

GDI Advanced Guard Tower: The main GDI defense tower, armed with four machine guns and Tomahawk missiles
GDI Barracks: This allows you to purchase higher classes of infantry
GDI Weapons Factory: This allows you to purchase vehicles
GDI Refinery: This structure sends out an automated Harvester to collect Tiberium resources and return to refine it into usable credits for the team.

Nod Obelisk: The main Nod defense tower, armed with a powerful laser
Nod Turrets: A turret fires tank shells at enemies within range
Hand of Nod: This allows you to purchase higher classes of infantry
Nod Airstrip: This allows you to purchase vehicles
Nod Refinery: This structure sends out an automated Harvester to collect Tiberium resources and return to refine it into usable credits for the team.

-Powerplant coming soon!

Vehicles:

GDI Humvee: GDI\'s basic scout vehicle, armed with a heavy machine gun.
GDI APC: An Armoured Personnel Carrier with room for five passengers and a heavy machine gun.
GDI MRLS: A Mobile Rocket Launcher System that can provide long ranged firepower.
GDI Medium Tank: An M1A1 Medium Tank with a large anti-tank cannon and heavy armour
GDI Mammoth Tank: A massive tank with dual cannons and dual tusk-missile launchers

Nod Buggy: The Brotherhood\'s basic scout vehicle, armed with a heavy machine gun.
Nod APC: An Armoured Personnel Carrier with room for five passengers and a heavy machine gun.
Nod Artillery: A long-ranged G6 Howitzer capable of providing heavy artillery.
Nod Flame Tank: A dual-barreled flame vehicle.
Nod Light Tank: Nod\'s basic combat tank, both fast and effective
Nod Stealth Tank: A stealthed vehicle armed with dual short-ranged homing missiles per clip

-Orca, Apache, Chinook helicopter, and more coming soon!

Infantry:

All of the following are armed with a pistol and at least one timed C4.

GDI Soldier: Basic rifle infantry.
GDI Shotgunner: Basic infantry armed with a shotgun.
GDI Grenadier: Basic infantry armed with an automatic grenade launcher.
GDI Engineer: Armed with a repair gun and remote explosives.
GDI Officer: Special character armed with a heavy chaingun
GDI Sniper: Special character armed with a sniper rifle
GDI Gunner: Dead 6 Commando armed with a heavy rocket launcher
GDI Personal Ion Cannon Havoc (temporary): Havoc the Commando is back, but with this build he will be carrying the PIC until our Sydney is done
GDI Hotwire: Special engineer unit armed with an additional timed C4, proximity mines, and an advanced repair gun

Nod Soldier: Basic rifle infantry

Nod Stealth Black Hand: A stealth trooper armed with a laser-rifle
Nod Railgun (Sakura, temporary): Sakura is back, but with this build she will be carrying the Railgun
Nod Technician: Special engineer unit armed with an additional timed C4, proximity mines, and an advanced repair gun

10 more infantry coming soon!

Superweapons:

Ion Cannon beacon: A giant beam shot by a space-based satellite at a selected target.
Nuclear Strike beacon: A tactical nuclear blast at a selected target.

Maps:

Islands: A beautiful group of islands linked by land bridges on a clear-blue-skied setting, with no automated defenses.
Field: A dark grassland setting with a waterfall, river and a barn, with a large field for action

Many more maps coming soon!

And of course, this being our first beta release, it will be a very early version of Renegade X, and will in no way, shape, or form, represent the full release. The mod will be released in three main stages.

1. Less content than C&C Renegade. First couple releases won\'t have all the units or maps, but will have the basic C&C mode with all ground vehicles and most infantry. They\'ll be updated with patches as more gets done.

2. As much content as C&C Renegade. The same vehicles, infantry, and maps as the original games, with some original ideas and levels, features, and the general Renegade X experience.

3. More content. Includes more games modes (C&C/CTF hybrid, objective-based mode, World Domination), more server side options and features, options to allow more beacons and/or vehicles, additional features and much more.

On September 30th, I will be rereleasing this build\'s information as well as providing a \"to be added later\" list. This version won\'t have very much on the custom server-side options front, but we do plan on adding many more features, game modes, vehicles, and a plethora of server side options in later releases. Just be patient as you always have been, and the patches and betas will get to you.

Nod Obelisk:

The main Nod defense tower, armed with a powerful laser.



Advanced Guard Tower:

The main GDI defense tower, armed with four machine guns and Tomahawk missiles.



Refinery:

This structure sends out an automated Harvester to collect Tiberium resources and return to refine it into usable credits for the team. It also provides 2 credits per second to each player when operational.



Chaingun:

The chaingun is a 500-clip weapon carried by the Nod and GDI Officers.



Nuclear Strike Beacon:

A tactical nuclear blast at a selected target. Simply deploy a beacon and watch the fireworks.



Gunner

As a member of the Dead 6, Gunner has seen a fair bit of action in his life. Carrying a rocket launcher which is both anti-vehicle and anti-infantry, this Gunner can kick serious ass!



Purchase Terminal Layout

One of the core pieces of C&C mode is the purchase terminal, where you can purchase characters, vehicles, and superweapons. Below is the new and improved PT layouts for GDI and Nod:





Nod Buggy

The Nod Buggy is the Brotherhood\'s basic two passenger scouting unit. Armed with a machine gun, it can run down enemy infantry and provide quick attacks on the enemy base.



GDI Weapons Factory

The GDI Weapons Factory provides a GDI player the ability to purchase five different vehicles as long as it is operational.



Nuclear Missile

Probably the most important missile in the mod, the Nuclear Missile is a tactical weapon with the capability of wiping out an entire structure with just one.



In conclusion...

You can look forward to seeing more updates, podcasts, events, and possibly interviews as the exciting month of September progresses.

The release date has been locked in. If you do not have UT3 yet, get it before your time runs out. We hope you\'re ready.

Welcome to Renegade-X
Source: Command and Conquer: Renegade Official Forums: General Discussion => Renegade X - Pre-Release Update!

If you've ever played Renegade, you'll want to try this. If not, here's a reason to try the best team-based multiplayer concept that ever existed in a refreshed way. I've had Unreal Tournament III for a while now, partly because of this, so I can't wait.

So... nobody has any interest in this? I figured with everyone here always nagging on the lack of originality and gameplay and fun in today's games with how the old gameplay based stuff was better than the flashy graphics and so on that there'd be some interest here, but it seems there's some irony going on? Maybe too little people know about Renegade to give this a second look?

YouTube - Renegade X - Summer 09 Trailer HD

For a free game, this is better than most retail stuff out there. The best gameplay now has better graphics, improved on the bugs/glitches, and a whole richer experience (at least from what I can see from this end, having not tried it yet). Sure, you need Unreal Tournament III for this, so it's not completely free, but it is if you have it, and that game is, what, $15 through Steam now, and I really think that's worth it for these two. This MOD got rated for the top five this year on MODDB, by the way. It's definitely worth the look if you have Unreal Tournament III.

It's out (as of yesterday). Read it, all of it, before you install it and join some server and start wondering why the characters are limited, animations look funny, notice some sounds or animations/visual effects are missing, or how the game mode itself works.



September 30th is here!

The day you have all waited for has finally arrived! After over two years of planning, building the mod, and updating our fans, the moment we've all worked so hard for is finally here. Our passion for C&C Renegade has been channeled, and manifested into this great project, Renegade X. Today is a great day for our mod and our community, as it marks a new beginning for Command & Conquer Renegade fans everywhere, a fulfillment of our promise, and the start of a new generation of C&C FPS gaming.

Today is the day where we release the very first incarnation of Renegade X. It is our first beta, which features the basis of C&C Renegade's game mode and units. It's the very first of many public releases, given to the public to ensure a stable and exciting full release of the mod in the future. Renegade X 0.35 does not contain everything the mod will eventually offer, as it is an early beta, but it is your chance to get an early taste of Renegade X, and an opportunity for you to share your opinions, ideas, and help us in the process of fixing glitches.

The Renegade X team plans on releasing patches after each beta release, to fix any problems we may encounter as the open beta ensues. New content is also on the way.

Download Renegade X Beta Version 0.35 NOW!

To anyone that has ever doubted that this day would ever come...in your face!

Unreal Tournament 3 Patch

Before even attempting to install Renegade X, please make sure you have the latest Unreal Tournament 3 patch. You can find that here:

http://udn.epicgames.com/Files/UT3/UT3patch5.exe

NOTE: If you bought the Steam Unreal Tournament 3 Black Edition you do NOT need this patch.

Minimum System Requirements

The minimum system requirements for Renegade X are about the same as Unreal Tournament 3. You must have the necessary PC parts either as powerful or more powerful than the ones listed below.

Minimum:
o Supported OS: Windows XP SP2 or Windows Vista
o Processor: 2.0+ GHZ Single Core Processor
o Memory: 512 MB RAM
o Graphics: NVIDIA 6200+ or ATI Radeon 9600+ Video Card
o Sound: Windows Supported Sound Card
o DirectX: DirectX 9.0c

How to Install Renegade X Beta Version 0.35

To install the mod, run the "Renegade-X 0.35 Beta.exe" file. A self extractor will ask you to where you wish to install the mod. You must install Renegade X in "Documents/My Games/Unreal Tournament 3", otherwise it will not work. Afterwords, you must manually create a ut3.exe shortcut - this can be placed anywhere on your computer. Then, right click on that new shortcut, click properties, and edit the Target: place "-mod=..\Renegade -solomod" at the end of the target, minus the quotations. Renegade X should now successfully be installed.

Tutorial Video!

For those of you who plan on downloading the mod, or are interested in knowing how to play, we've released the Renegade X Basic Tutorial. It briefly explains the basics of our mod's game mode "C&C mode", for those of you who either haven't played C&C Renegade online, or simply need a refresher. We highly recommend you watch it before playing our mod.

You can check that out here: http://borgamers.com/RenX/RenX_CnCTutorial.avi

"How to Play" Document

If you'd like to view a more detailed text version of how to play the mod, there is a .txt file included in the download rar. You can also read that here: Log In

How to Join a server

Renegade X Beta Version 0.35 is a multiplayer-only mod. Although you can play the mod in "Instant Action" mode offline, no AI are currently available. That feature will be released in a later beta. Therefore, you need to be connected to the internet to play with this mod with others. There are two ways to join a server:

1) Load "Renegade-X.exe" in the Renegade folder after you install the mod. It will launch a server client program, where you will see the available servers listed. Refresh the list if necessary. Simply set up your screen name at the bottom of the client, click on the server you wish to join, and click the "Join Server" button. Make sure the file path under "UT3.exe Location" is correct before joining the server.

*NOTE: The server client does not always show the right amount of players. This will be fixed asap.

2) If for whatever reason you are unable to join a server with the "Renegade-X.exe" server client program, there is a secondary way to join a Renegade X server. Launch your Renegade X shortcut, login to your multiplayer account, click "Multiplayer", then click "Join Game". Once on that screen, press F10. This should launch a console. Then, simply type the word "open" in the console (no quotations), followed by a space, and the IP of the server you wish to join. Then hit enter, and it should take you straight to the server. Make sure the server IP is correct - you can find the IPs to the official servers on Log In

Please make sure the mod is fully and properly installed before attempting to join a server. If you have any questions or problems, please do not hesitate to voice your problems at our official forums. Log In

Renegade X OFFICIAL Servers

Our official server IPs are as follows:

Renegade-X.com Official USA Server: COMING SOON, WILL BE UPDATED WITHIN 24 HOURS

[OFFICIAL]Renegade-X UK Server #1: 78.129.164.83:7777

And you can always join us at our official Teamspeak server: 75.126.220.122:8769

October Patch

We will be releasing a Renegade X 0.35 patch sometime in October, which will address any immediate problems encountered in the mod. The patch will be released by the team, and will be available once it is done.

Screenshots!







As many of you have noticed, the server client program does not accurately present a server's playercounts.

A quick fix for the Renegade X server client has been uploaded. The patch is dependent on the servers. Server owners must install this patch and update their server(s) for their servers to properly display the player count info.

All non-server owners will need this patch as well. You can find it below:

http://borgamers.com/RenX/RenX_SC_Patch1.zip
I've downloaded it and only tried it offline for a few minutes, not online yet, but word is, the online play servers already have 50+ players, so there will be alot of people to play with. If you have Unreal Tournament 3, it's free, and it's less than 500MB, so it's just a minute or so download (install was quick too). It definitely feels like a Beta, not a full game yet, so don't expect it all right from the go. There's two maps, most of the vehicles, and a few characters. Sounds are missing, graphical glitches are noticeable, and character animations are wonky, along with other bugs. It's still roughly playable, and will give you a feel for the upcoming stuff and Renegade mode itself. Should be good when it's final.

Really, I can't believe for all the whining for "better" and "more fun" and "more original" gameplay/modes people do these days, that more would be interested.

Well, bumpdate.

There's two new big and recent changes with the MOD. You can read about them at their moddb.com site for it.



It's been a while since our last update, but some very exciting developments have been happening behind the scenes over at Renegade X. Some secrets will be unveiled today in this update, and others will be left aside for another time, soon.

Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn

Over the past few months, the team has been busy with several things. In relation to Renegade X, we've been working on porting Renegade X over to the Unreal Development Kit (UDK), which would successfully make Renegade X into a free, standalone indie game. This process has required us to recode some basic elements, and create some new static meshes for the UDK versions. The UDK really is a new beginning in many ways.

On May 4th 2010, the team released ( A Sign of Things to Come - Renegade X Forums ) a new image and mysterious riddle. After many elaborate guesses and some pretty close dissections of the riddle, some figured it out: Black Dawn.

Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn is a standalone singleplayer demo, featuring the UDK. Captain Nick "Havoc" Parker is back, and in a new original level designed from scratch by Totem Arts. The Brotherhood of Nod has captured the renowned GDI scientist Dr. Ignatio Mobius, and have taken him to an island stronghold. GDI's only hope in getting back Mobius is through the use of force!

*Capture the enemy beachhead under the covering fire of Gunboats!
*Fight in large scale and covert battles!
*Witness cinematics, A-10 strikes, cruise missiles, Ion Cannons, hovercrafts, and much more!
*See the new, improved, and standalone Renegade X visual and audio experience!

It will act as a preliminary demonstration and a first-hand experience of the new face of Renegade X on the UDK, and what it has to offer. Most of what is being made for Black Dawn will be incorporated in the later multiplayer release of Renegade X - this will act as a step-up towards that final goal.











Operation Black Dawn Teaser Trailer!

We've prepared an exciting new teaser to showcase this demo!

Short version for the lazy ones.

The first change is, the game is sort of getting a single player. It's not a remake of the single player in Renegade (at least, not yet), but rather apparently either a remake of the original Tiberian Dawn mission, or a custom thing in that regard.

The second is, they're moving from Unreal Engine 3 to Unreal Development Kit (UDK), meaning it will no longer be a MOD to Unreal Tournament III, and you won't need Unreal Tournament III to play this. It still remains free! You no longer have an excuse not to try it, so once it's out in it's new engine/form (could be a while for the multiplayer though, albeit the singleplayer demo should be "soon" by their words), I hope to see some of us there.

Here's an interview CNCNZ did on it with the leader of Totem Arts, the team/group making it. It gives a good overall description of both Renegade and the origins of this mod, the game mode it'll be using (and the more "standard" ones most games these days have), and of what's to come. It's a really good read.

Command & Conquer | CNCNZ.com | I Came To Play

If you're too lazy to read this whole read, then at least read this. It's gives a good enough overview of where things are at now, and of what's to come.

Another update.



Renegade X is an FPS total conversion mod, bringing the world of Command & Conquer to ground level, on the Unreal Engine 3. Our latest version, Renegade X v0.5 requires Unreal Tournament 3, but the team is now in the process of porting the project to the Unreal Development Kit, which will mean that Renegade X will be fully standalone in all future releases.

With over 12,000 downloads and 5 awards, the Renegade X beta, for Unreal Tournament 3, is available for download here. You can watch our 1 minute 18 second launch trailer here.

A few weeks ago, the team announced Renegade X: Operation Black Dawn. Black Dawn is a singleplayer mission and a demonstration of some of the game's latest features, coming soon to a computer near you. You play as the GDI commando, Captain Nick "Havoc" Parker, in a GDI invasion of a Nod island stronghold. The goal of this operation is to rescue Dr. Ignatio Mobius, a renowned GDI Tiberium scientist, captured by the Brotherhood of Nod. GDI gunboats, hovercrafts, aircraft, superweapons, vehicles, and grunts will support you in your struggle against the Nod military machine.

Watch the Black Dawn teaser trailer here.

Day Cycle System

The team has recently managed to get a working day-cycle into Renegade X: Black Dawn. This will create a new, unique atmospheric experience, as some elements of the game's lighting will be fully dynamic. The visual and even gameplay depth this system adds almost speaks for itself, but we've got some new jaw-dropping images just in case.














And in terms of new features offered in Renegade X on the UDK, this is just the beginning.

Black Dawn Podcast

It's been a long time since we've done a podcast, but with Black Dawn just around the corner, we're back! Join Fobby, Havoc89, and Avalanche in this hilarious and informative 19 minute podcast, as we discuss Black Dawn, new Renegade X features, the UDK, programming, recruitment and more.

CNCNZ interviews Renegade X

Soon after Operation Black Dawn had been announced, the popular Command & Conquer news site CNCNZ posted an interview with Renegade X founder Fobby. The interview shares some exclusive details about Black Dawn, and further discusses Renegade X's standalone multiplayer release, the UDK, the mod in the public eye, new features and more.

CNCNZ: How are the technical aspects of incorporating the Unreal UDK going?

Fobby: Porting Renegade X to the UDK is, in some ways, like starting anew. A few aspects of the mod are being redone completely for the next version, while other aspects simply require a smooth transition.

For example, many static meshes (props, textures, etc.) were used from UT3 are nonexistent in the UDK, which requires us to recreate them. Part of what must also be redone is the code - we've created a much more organized coding structure this time around for the coming multiplayer release, and have concluded that it would be easier to redo parts of the code instead of transferring, fixing, and reorganizing old code. Both basic and complex features are being recoded.

All in all, I believe we are on track, and now that some of our core members are done with university and college for the year (or finishing up school soon), I expect the team to power through the summer with fascinating results. Just you wait.
Check out the full, detailed interview here!
