Reinstalling Renegade with Core Patch is easy if you follow the correct order.
1. Uninstall previous versions of C&C Renegade
1.1. Backup all your fanmaps and skins in your renegade/data directory (usually c:\westwood\renegade\data).
Map files usually end with *.mix. Simply move them to another directory.
1.2. Go to start -> control panel -> add/remove programs -> C&C Renegade -> uninstall
1.3. Delete the Renegade directory (usually c:\westwood\renegade). You can use a 3rd party program
to clean all renegade registry entries.
If you don't understand what this step means or don't feel confident, then simply ignore it.
2. Install C&C Renegade
2.1. Put your Renegade install disc in your cd-rom drive and install Renegade.
Advice: install to a different directory. Note: if you run Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may need
to install in admin mode. To do so, right-click the setup.exe and click "run as administrator".
If you want to, you can move your fanmaps and skins in the /renegade/data directory after the install.
This step should work without any problems.
Run Renegade to check whether the installation was successful.
3. Patches & Updates
(To play C&C Renegade online, you should have an up-to-date version. Therefore follow these
steps after a clean installation.)
3.1. Install the Renegade 1.037 patch. You can download it from
ftp://ftp.westwood.com/pub/renegade/updates/. You should skip this if you have The First Decade
as it already includes this patch.
3.2. Download this corepatch pack: http://www.thekoss2.org/files/cp2complete.zip,
unzip it and put all three files (PATCHALL.RTP, PATCHER.EXE and PATCHW32.DLL) into your
"/Renegade" folder (not /Data). Overwrite the PATCHW32.DLL if already existing.
Now execute the PATCHER.EXE
Note: if you run Windows Vista or Windows 7, you may need to install in admin mode. To do so,
right-click the setup.exe and click "run as administrator".
Once core patch 2 is installed, you do not need to use your CD anymore as core patch 2 includes a
no-cd crack. An error will occur when you load the game but you can click on 'cancel' to skip to the main menu.
3.3. Download and install scripts 3, latest stable version which you can download here: scripts344.exe
We recommend you to uncheck 'bloom' in the setup. If you have a rather old PC, also uncheck 'shaders'.
4. Go and play Renegade
You'll need to log in with your nick and password. If you don't have a login yet, you can simply log in
with the nickname of your choice and a password of exactly 8 letters or numbers. If it isn't taken,
it will get registered to you. If it is taken, you will get an empty server list.
You can download individual maps on www.thekoss2.org/maps or a full map pack with most used fanmaps here:
