Searching / filtering the mod releases

You can find a very useful utility to help you search through releases on Renegade community .
It allows you to apply a filter on the list of releases.

If you're looking for a specific release, you can also use the forum's search utility.


Other FAQ

Here you can find some answers to frequently asked questions.

- I have downloaded something which is packed in some kind of .RAR or .ZIP file, but how do I extract the files out of it so I can use them in Renegade?

Get winrar for free to extract the files. Download winrar here.
http://www.rarsoft.com/rar/wrar380.exe
After you have installed winrar, simply RIGHT-click on the downloaded .RAR or .ZIP and select 'unpack files' then select any directory to extract the files to.

- Now that I have my files extracted how can I get them to work with Renegade?

Most of the time, you can simply select all of the files and copy them into your Renegade DATA folder. In most cases the default path to this directory is:
C:\Westwood\Renegade\Data
or if you have The First Decade (tm):
C:\Program Files\EA Games\Command & Conquer The First Decade\Command & Conquer Renegade(tm)\Renegade\Data
There may also be a "readme.txt" included with the release. Please read it for special install instructions for that release.


- Am I allowed to post any of the releases which I have found in this forum into other forums or websites?


Yes, as long as the author of the release gives you permission to it. You can contact the author via Personal Messaging.

- My file attachment is larger then 16384 KB (16 MB) where should I upload it?

I would suggest http://www.filefront.com/ You can make your own profile there, and then by uploading files you have some kind of your own downloadpage since all your uploads are in one big list.

Personally I HATE places like filefront, so if you have a mod larger than 16mb, I would gladly host it at my file database site (samousfiles.webs.com), just pm me. I will need the file, but once I upload it for you, I will give you a direct download link, and the option to have an instructions page to go with your file. PM me again to have it removed. When I get my cnc renegade section of my site working (samous.webs.com/cncren/) I can also put a link to download it there if you ask for it.
