You probably have "Automatically download CP updates" or whatever its called, enabled. Make sure you deselect that if you don't want CP updates.

Btw, I've played this game for years and in lobby wars and pro clanwars - and I've never had a complaint about CP2.

I do but I've already had them downloaded, then I downloaded them again to make sure.

Tried disabling core updates didn't help.

Thanks for those who gave the info on turning off auto-start. Not too happy about watching my pc have a program start over and over in a loop. Angry

If you have problems with this new RenGuard wanting to download the core patch even though you have already got it installed, grab the .reg file from this post and double click on it and select "add to registry" (or whatever windows says).
Changes were made to where RenGuard stores information in the registry for some reason related to Windows Vista so now it doesn't think CP2 is installed when it is. This registry file writes the information in the right place so the new version of RG now thinks CP2 is installed.

So...got the new game2.exe, installed core patch one, and everytime it does the pre-install check for CP2 it finds "errors". So I downloaded and replaced all the maps and always2.dat and I still get the same "errors". Tried the registry trick and i still get the errors.
And yes I would actually like CP2 so I dont' want to use "disable CP updates"

Help?

So I went and patched it manually, and now RG doesn't even run, it claims "Renegade cannot be found".

About minimising, this is an old problem. The workaround can be found in the RGfaq, as usual Wink. http://www.renegadecommunity.com/page.php?link=rgfaq#17

You can install CP1 and/or 2 manually if you can't get the auto updater to work. This is also an old problem, mostly related to people doing something wrong but whatever. http://www.renegadecommunity.com/page.php?link=rgfaq#14 (at the bottom)

I'll add the RG 1.032 download link and the registry file download link to the RGFAQ now.

For anyone having problems with the automatic mandetory game2.exe download - you can download it here manually and put it into your renegade dir:

Maybe I was unclear when I said I had already patched in manually.

Thanks to mac for the game2.exe link, fixed the last one RG downloaded for me that was a whopping 0 kb. Maybe that's why it doesn't work?

Now, even with both patches manually installed it keeps running the pre-core patch check and finds errors even though I downloaded every map and always2.dat through the RG window.

Maybe you guys should get this thing working before you claim it is 100% compatible.

Looks like you are using Vista or something - the CP installer couldnt save its registry value to indicate its installed it.

Go to the registry, find the RenGuard entry, and set PatchVersion to 2. That will fix it.

Currently adressing this issue, the load on the servers is incredibly high, which causes instability. Fixed it for now.

So you are saying that even though we downloaded the new game.exe, we have to download a game2.exe?

WTF do we need to download a new game2.exe for? I already had enough problems downloading the game.exe file/update.

Are there anymore things that we are going to have to update??? It's a pain in the butt when you think you are all set until the next update a while off, but the next day, renguard doesnt work again.....


Lovely. Just lovely. Sarcasm I mean, dont get me wrong, I support you and your work, but i think that you should release A major update forcing everything you want updated, updated. Not forcing 2, 3 small updates at a time.

==============

It's NOT downloading CP1/CP2. It's downloading a unified game2.exe whose only modification is that it removes the need to have the CD in the drive when you play. We needed to have everyone use the same game2.exe for memory hack enforcement.

This is NOT a core patch download, it's ONLY a game2.exe download.


You dont need the CD in to play already. You just click cancel when the prompt for the CD comes up. The CD only contains the SP and Intro Movies. Playing the game now without the CD is just the same at it will be after this update. I play with no CD all the time, and i have an original copy of renegade.

I love you all and the effort you are making, but this doesn't seem ready for release. Nothing is fixed. I'm watching peeps 6 to 8 at a time being kicked for rg not running any more. They don't know it is the rg server and not ours. Then I get yelled at and our community blamed. I have gotten more pms just tonight than I do in a week. Personally I can't stay in a game more than 5 mins without it kicking me for rg stop running. I've given the enemy 4 vehicles already.

In addition, if I go away for a long period ren exits, goes back to the rg screen with a "not compatible with your firewall" error message and I have to restart my pc to get back in.

Not sure what changed other than more users on 1.032 but I never had this problem as a beta tester. Only since the release.

Good luck Sad

EXACTLY the reason I just came here to post just now....

...I'm having the same exact issues on our server. As I stated in a different post, I had to remove the 'Full RenGuard' setting and put it on Half - but even this isn't helping. People are still mad-droping and thinking its our servers' fault. I'm guessing it has to do with how the client and server are connected cuz people join with rg and are accepted, then drop because they lost connection to the rg network.

Guys, if EA has problems due to serverload after releasing a game like C&C3, then how do you expect BHS not to have similar problems? There has been a beta test but you cannot compare a load of 1.000 with a load of 50 testers unfortunately.

If you use Windows Vista, then you will have to run RG in admin mode. That's a matter of actually knowing how to work with your OS.

The drop network problem is solved for now, until we can fix this client side. Has to do with x64 and vista compatibility which fucks up memory reading. Havent seen drops for hours now.
