The maps and game-modes are mostly designed by current and/or former MPF Developers such as @Pwn Call @trunkskgb me @zunnie and former Developer @ImperialKaskins. Coding of the server, brenbot and veterancy were done by me @zunnie @unknown @Genesis2001 and @sla.ro for the most part.
The game sport a wide range of variety to play with many units, buildings, weapons and powerups.
We also have a dozen maps available that were created by the Renegade Community over the years since 2002!
Fight as the Global Defense Initiative or The Brotherhood of Nod in a fictionary C&C World.
Attack the enemy base buildings to win while protecting your own.
Renegade is not needed to play this, it is a Standalone Installation.
Have fun playing!

- Introduction -
To run a Renegade Dedicated Server you need to install the Renegade FDS (Renegade Free Dedicated Server).
A dedicated server is basically a command prompt type program which allows for Renegade Clients to connect
and play on the server. Dedicated servers are usually unattended and you cannot play as the host while running
a dedicated server. Running a dedicated server also enables you to run SSGM 4.0 and/or other special modifications
which are unavailable for the game client.
- MPF Public FDS Package -
You can now download a prepared package of the FDS with DA 1.92 and TT 4.6 applied, source code included with examples @
- Downloads -
You can download the RenegadeFDS installation file on for example multiplayerforums over here:
- Installation -
After you have installed the Renegade FDS, copy the contents of the serverfiles folder from the 4.0 server download into the FDS folder.
Edit server.ini, svrcfg_cnc.ini, tt.cfg and ssgm.ini as per the documentation in this topic.
You then also need to install the Visual C++ runtime libraries and the DirectX runtimes from the "redist" folder.
The server.exe file in the 4.1 server download is the one you should be using as it has been modified.
You do not need to apply the "no gameplay pending" patch to it as that patch is now a server.ini option.
Make sure anticheat.ini is in the data folder otherwise the anti-cheat will probably kick you even with stock renegade files.
- Requirements -
When running the server in Westwood Online Mode (or XWIS these days) you require a valid serial number to run the server.
This can be a FDS Serial or your Renegade Client serial.
In GameSpy mode there are no requirements.
- Notes for WOL Mode (XWIS) -
To get passed the WOL installation for the RenegadeFDS you need to enter a (fake) serial number that starts with 0669.
For example: 0669714956637887900319 ( Note: This is a fake serial and you cannot host a server in XWIS/WOL mode with this serial,
it is only provided for you so you can get passed the installation dialogs. )
This package contains everything you need to get a server going.
When you downloaded the zip file make sure that you goto its properties and "Unblock" it BEFORE you extract the files, else it may not function correctly.
There is a folder called "prerequisites" and you must run and install the vcredist_x86_2012.exe and vcredist_x86_2013.exe and also the dxsetup.exe found in the dxsetup folder or your server will not run.
Make sure you edit server.ini and change ports where needed and forward them if applicable. Note that the GameSpyQueryPort *must* be different from what you set in DA.ini
Also edit the srvcfg_cnc.ini found in the data folder to set your own server name, title, and maybe some other options.
Brenbot is included in this zip and works 'out of the box' pretty much.
You should however change the nickname of the bot to use on IRC, the channels it will join and the Path to your Server root folder.
See moderators.cfg for help adding moderators.
The FIRST message listed in messages.cfg is what will be displayed when players type !rules in your server. Keep it very short as there is a ~200 character limit on lines.
I've included an example configuration of the tt.cfg file that now handles the server map rotation and downloader properties.
It's pretty straigthforward, just upload your ttfs folder to your website and set the repositoryUrl to it ending with a /
eg: repositoryUrl = "http://www.yourwebsite.com/ttfs/";
A note: When you use the packageeditor cmdline to install or convert new maps or packages make sure the Server is NOT running.
If you've adjusted your configuration files and are ready to run it, then execute the file server.exe followed by brenbot.exe
Always start the server first, then brenbot.
The sourcecode based on Dragonade 1.92 with TT 4.6 support is included and contains a nice mpf_example to get going.
