Initial XWIS Account Setup

Registering a nick on XWIS for Renegade and other C&C games is very easy. All you need to do is set up a Game Account at XWIS.
Here's how to register on XWIS and login to your Game Account:

1. Register at the strike team forums

2. Login to your Game Account using that username and password


Register Nick

1. Click on the "Create Nick" link.
2. Choose the game for which to create a nickname.
3. Enter the nickname you want in the textfield.
4. Enter serial when asked (applies for: Tiberian Sun, Red Alert 2, Renegade).



To reset the password

Use the RESET PASSWORD button to reset your password

old topic but relevant to my needs. I have played since 2007 and before, always with the same nick/ serial but I never went to xwis website and registered it but when I would play ren it would save my old stats no problems. Well lost my old disc bought a new one and now its giving me problems and apparently my username is already taken in xwis so I cant setup an account. I use badam and always have for years. just looking for some kind of help to use my original name to play again.

This is the current way nicknames work.
If you look at the post date this is fairly new.

If you get a message stating that the nickname has already been taken, it could be that you're using a wrong password. Maybe one of your older ones?

Following the steps above you will be able to register your serials and get back all of your accounts on those serials.
If you lost your serial(s), I'm really sorry but there is nothing we can do.

Damn an that is my Problem for my Nickname "Minibar" in Renegade.
I got the Nickname "Minibar2" and "Minibar3" with my other Serials unlocked on XWIS (I have 3 Renegade Cds + Serials).

The problem with the username "Minibar" in Renegades WOL is, that my Password ist to weak for entering WOL.

Any chance to get me a safer password or that you can reset it on manual without my serial Key?
I have enough ways to approve that the Nickname "Minibar" really belongs to me.

If you or the strike-team have a way to help me (or not), please let me know.

You can write it here in this topic or under this link:

Figh7club Minibar

Thanks for your help...
Greetings from Germany

Minibar Thumbs Up

I added the picture from the Mail you can see below...

Here you find an old E-Mail that I made to Crimson on Sunday, 30 January 2011:

Good Morning Crimson,

Good Morning BH-Team,

can you please activate my account @ renegadeforums.com named "Minibar"?

I want to write Topics and use your forums.

"The administrator had chosen to review all accounts manually prior to activation. Until your account has been validated by the administrator you will not be able to utilize the full capabilities of your account. "

Can you help me out with another Problem?

I added my Renegade Serial to the XWIS - Ctonrol Panel.
Then my Nicks got added "Minibar2" and "Minibar3".
I wondered where my Nick "Minibar" is...

Just one answer... on another Serial Code!

In 2003 I buyed Renegade three times, for me, my brother and my best friend.

I think the serial code for my Nick Minibar is lost.

Can "you" find out where the Name Minibar is listed, and send me the Serial Code from Minibar?

Or can you reset the password from the Nick Minibar in XWIS (WOL) from Renegade and send me a new password for it?

I know the existing password, but the password is to weak for using the Nick on XWIS Renegade Sad

I added a picture, that you see I am not lying and the Nick Minibar really belongs to me.

For Questions about my Name and anything else, you can ask Apoc, Lou Castle, the german C&C Community Manager "Gambler" from cnc-inside.de aka figh7club or just watch into the mails from Aaron where he said goodbye and look into the CC [deleted].

If there are some questions. Ask me.

I want to activate my "real" Nick Minibar again with a new save password on XWIS. Cause All my friends are added in this buddy list and all know me under this nick in Renegade.

All my Stats are on this Nick.

If you entered all the serials but the nick 'Minibar' doesn't show, you can try to register that nick in the CP.
If that fails it is still floating around somewhere and you probably have it on another serial. If it succeeds.. well then the account somehow got deleted xD

Whether you have the correct serial registered can also be verified by checking the Serial ID.
In the attached picture of yours, you can see that it says
Quote:

SID:739707

If that ID is also in your CP try to login using 'Minibar' and as pass the one you see in your CP. If the Serial ID doesn't show in the list, trying this is pretty useless though.

EDIT: I just logged in to the CP and it seems that the Serials list has been removed...

I never deleted the nick Minibar.
So it must be on another Serial.

But I mentioned something different.
The Jelly Server was down for some time.
When I typed /seen Minibar it was not 1-2 years ago (what it should be), just 2 month?!

Is that because of the hack from Jelly and his reboot or is someone using my nick (and my Serial?)

I will try it with the CP again.
Wasn't there an option to enter with the weak password and set a stronger password in WOL?

Someone could be using your account/serial which means you shared your serial or account information, or the account was removed and later registered by someone else.
It could also be that someone used DirectConnect using that nickname in which case no authentication occurs.
Even though Jelly was down, the database containing that data shouldn't have been affected by that.

WOL/XWIS assigns a password for your account in the CP.
You can click "Reset Password" to get a new one. You can't change it manually afaik but I don't know all the commands available in WOL/XWIS.

I will try Reset Password.
