Cliff Hicks Interview
[ Category: Interview ] - [ @ 06/28/02 ] - [ By: Gange ] - [ Source: Renegade Realm ]
Renegade Realm have had an interview with Cliff "Devinoch" Hicks.
1) Why was the Reckon Bike taken out of C&C Mode?

Devinoch: The team never got to the point with being comfortable of how it handled. It never *felt* like a bike. It wasn't responding how a bike would handle. And since the bike wasn't essential for balance, it was removed and the game was balanced around it.

Why they asked that over-asked and well answered question I don't know :)But check out the rest of the superb interview here.

Frank Klepacki Interview
Renegade Realm has conducted an interview with Westwood music man Frank Klepacki. Here's two of the questions they asked him.

Q: What inspired you for the music in Renegade?

The original Command & Conquer music I wrote. Because Renegade took place in the original setting of C&C, I purposely derived familiar popular tunes from the original sound track and recomposed them, added new parts to them, gave them a more modern edge, and a feel that best represented a first person shooter. It was a lot of fun to go back and revisit the old days, but it was even more fun to compose some brand new scores to add to the list, like Havoc’s theme "Got a Present for Ya", a full on "Command & Conquer" theme song, and "Move it."

Q: Are you upset that you were not able to do the voice of Havoc? Did you do another voice?

Well, it would have been cool to do the voice, heck I could have nailed the new version of the voice too. But, I don't get to make a voice cameo in that game this time... They used all pro actors for the game.

Head here for the rest.

Renegade Realm
[ Category: News ] - [ @ 04/29/02 ] - [ By: periclytes ]
Got this from CNCDEN:


Periclytes has the website Renegade Realm. It's currently offline due to some mishap with his website files. He has posted a message on the Official Renegade Forums. Sort of a poll he's taking to see if any of the fans want him to bring back Renegade Realm. He'd have to start from scratch as far as making the site, and he's kinda wandering if its worth the effort.

So head right here to read what he has posted, and leave a comment please.

Renegade Servers Down
[ Category: Renegade News ] - [ @ 04/24/02 ] - [ By: periclytes ]
Got this from Devinoch, as well as I see he's put it on the official site:

Hey everyone, we're having some technical issues right now and the Renegade servers are currently down while we attempt to fix the issue. We don't have an estimate of how long they'll be down or when they'll be back up, but we'll let you know.

Interview With David Yee
[ Category: Interview ] - [ @ 04/16/02 ] - [ By: finalduke ] - [ Source: Westwood ]
CnC Renegade has a interview about air units with the lead designer of Renegade the great David Yee. Here is a small sample:

Why were controlable air units not in the game when it was first released?

David: When you are building a game, you need to know what is going to be part of the experience. Based on our estimates, flying vehicles would have taken about six months to implement, and there are usually hidden costs associated with every feature. Based on our development cycle, the team did not feel that we could spend that amount of time on an unknown element. The focus of our game is very much on the ground vehicles and the first-person perspective of the player, and so we chose to cut flying vehicles from the initial release.


NeuroGamer Re-Launched!
[ Category: Network ] - [ @ 04/03/02 ] - [ By: ShockOps ] - [ Source: NG ]

IGN Guide
[ Category: Renegade ] - [ @ 04/02/02 ] - [ By: ShockOps ] - [ Source: IGN ]
IGN has posted its multiplayer guide for Renegade, here's a snippet.

"All players carry a block of timed C4 with a 30 second "fuse." So it's fire and forget on these babies. If you're low on health plant your C4 if you can; it's sticky, so you can plant it on an enemy player or against enemy armor or harvesters. Even if it detonates after you've died, you still get the kill."

Click here to read the rest.

Renegade Tactics!
[ Category: Renegade ] - [ @ 03/30/02 ] - [ By: ShockOps ] - [ Source: Westwood ]
Over at the official Renegade website they have posted a series of tactics for Renegade multiplayer, here's a snip.

"The Guarded Nuke Beacon
When you put down a Nuke Beacon, you know some GDI Engineer's going to come disarm it, so give it a little protection. Carry your newly bought Nuke Beacon to the enemy base in a Stealth Tank and after you deploy the beacon, hop back into your stealth tank over the beacon. When the engineer comes to disarm it, run him over. Repeat as long as necessary."

Check out the official website for more.
