For the first time, experience the Command and Conquer universe up close and personal as you fight it out on the ground among the structures, vehicles and weapons made famous in the original C&C. You assume the role of Havoc, elite GDI commando who fights and explores from a first or third-person viewpoint.

core patch 2
a nocdpatch is requiered to play the game. I have intermittant issues where the game crash on each new map when playing online. quite annoying, but wont ruin your game. Also it's often when you use voicechat commands alt/ctrl/ctrl+alt that you swap out to desktop, and need to swap back. I failed to get renguard to work properly. would be nice if anyone that have gotten it to run could add it to the howto.

1. Make sure to disable the virtual desktop feature before beginning, as it will cause the installer to crash.
2. Install the game to any directory you like.
3. Users installing from C&C The First Decade do not need a crack. Users installing from the original CD release need to download a working No-CD crack.
4. Run winecfg and set the Windows version to 2000 if it is not on 2000 by default.
5. Set the following options in Sound Configuration:
- Thick Emulation box aswell
6. Start the game, the game should run fine now with minor graphical/gameplay glitches, and sound is rather choppy but works.
Renegade always wants to do triple buffering and ATI's fglrx does not support triple buffering which results in very slow framerates (2-3fps). Add this entry to the registry to make the game render at playable framerates:
RenderTargetLockMode = disabled
