Normal Renegade shuts its self down normally without problems when I quit the game from the main menu screen.
When I install Renguard and its patch; Renegade does not shut down I click "Yes" to the are you sure you want to quit pop up and then the game just freezes there. My computer doesn't freeze I can still move the mouse, but it doesn't go back to windows and the same quit screen stays displayed on screen. Pressing the Windows button or Alt+Tab does nothing. I have tried using the Task Manager with Ctrl+Alt+Delete and Alt+Tab to switch to it which would normally work if something happens like this, but the same screen stays put. I have tried waiting for 10 minutes to see if it closed too.
Note: I had the latest Renegade Patch installed before I installed Renguard.

I have tried uninstalling everything Renguard & Renegade and installing again but the same thing. Everything else works fine.
So I am at the conclusion that Renguard and most likely its patch don't like me clicking that quit button!

System specs are as follows:

AMD 64 - 3000+
Socket 754 nForce3 250
1GB Stick Crucial Ballistix
FX5900XT & Driver Version = Forceware 71.84
80GB Seagate NCQ HD
Windows XP Pro & SP2
Using onboard sound AC97 codec (I think)

I am NOT overclocking anything either

happened to me too, I'd just have a black screen and a cursor. Apparently it's because of SP2 in XP.
instead of pressing "esc - quit" to quit the game, now I press "f8" and type "e" (it autocompletes the "exit" command), which is easier and has no black screen bug Smile

I have XP SP2 and do not experience this problem.

Something that stands out is that you (grayg) are running on a 64-bit platform. As I recall, the RenGuard team does not have a working 64-bit machine in their posession, and as such, cannot completely test 64-bit support.

2000_years, do you also have a 64-bit processor?

yeh I have a 64bit cpu but its really a 32/64 bit cpu and its running on 32bit windows so right now it isnt running in 64bit mode.
In short its acting just like any other 32bit cpu.

This is a know problem and has had many threads started about the same thing...
I have also had this happen to me on a few occasions, althou not always...
The task managaer does come up by the way, you just can't see it, i run two monitors and have positioned my task managaer on the second screen, so when this happens i can end the process, however a simple solution is to alt tab when you want to quit renegade and then use the task manager, not prefered, and not always remembered either, but it works.
Also if you run your renegade in windowed mode then you will be able to see the task manager then, its renegade that is freezing, nothing else. It's just that because the thing takes up your whole screen you can't do anything about it Sad

I have this all the time, best way is to play as normal, then when you want to quit switch screens (alt + tab) Or press that windows (start) button. Then all you have to do is right click renguard , exit, and everything will shut down.

Basically rengaurd will end the process game2.exe. You can also do it via CTRL+ALT+DEL
