As you may have noticed our game servers have been down for the past few days. This is due to some hardware issue we're trying to resolve, but unfortunately it's going to take a bit longer than expected. In the coming hours/days our IRC network and TS3 may also be down at certain times. We're trying to fix this as soon as possible but the hosting company plays a part in that as well and their support staff seems to be pretty busy atm.
Renegade X is a free First/Third Person Shooter with RTS elements. Players fight for two unique teams, manage their own economies, choose from over 30 weapons, 20 vehicles, and call in nuclear strikes, Ion Cannons, and airstrikes, and much more. Renegade X is for all players - lone wolves, team-based gamers, tankers, snipers, rushers, turtlers, and all others!
The Renegade X SDK allows you to create custom levels, mutators, and mods on the Unreal Development Kit using our framework. You'll have access to all of our assets and tutorials for free.
• 6 new vehicles: Hover MRLS, Titan, Wolverine, TicTank, Recon Bike, and Buggy. These vehicles are only available in crates, and they are not purchasable. The vehicles are also available on our SDK.
• Improved auto-patcher for quick and easy game updates.
• New crates, including alien abduction, Time bomb, Speed upgrade, and more.
• Oodles of SDK upgrades and fixes.
• Configurable air-drop times for server hosts.
• Spies no longer show player names to enemies
• A destroyed Refinery now gives 1 credit per second to players, and a captured Silo gives 0.5 credits per second.
• Tier one characters (Officer, Rocket Soldier, McFarland, and Chem) are now purchasable and doubled in price when the Hand of Nod and Barracks are destroyed.
• Secondary weapon upgrades price changes.
• Map fixes and changes.
• Tons of balance changes and fixes!

We are happy to announce that Beta 5 will be the final Renegade X beta. This is the last phase of beta testing. The next version of Renegade X will be the Full Version! It's been a few months since our last beta version, and we've been tinkering around, polishing up, and planning for the future. Totem Arts has been developing this game for about nine years now, and it is almost ready for that One-Point-Oh. We will be announcing its final release date soon.
That being said, Totem Arts will still be supporting the full game upon release. The SDK allows our community to build their own server mods, total conversion mods and custom maps. The autopatching system allows us to make easy and continual upgrades to the game. We have also appointed a group of Community Developers who will receive the support and direction of Totem Arts. We plan on making one more big community announcement in the very near future, and hosting a cash-prize Renegade X clan tournament upon the release of the full version.
Although we have a pretty stable playerbase, we are looking for ways to increase our exposure. If you have any ideas, go ahead and post them on this thread. You can do your part by sharing our updates with your friends, uploading videos, e-mailing gaming websites, and messaging popular YouTube gamers. We're doing our part, but keep in mind that this is a free project, and we can use any help we can get from our community!
We and our community have been actively discussing ways we can improve the RenX experience. Join the discussion, we're listening and involved: viewforum.php?f=13
Our SDK has thousands of downloads, and we are already seeing some cool custom maps and mutators being developed. Check those out here: viewforum.php?f=165
As you may have noticed, we're currently in the process of moving to a new server.
The new server is located in Europe instead of the US, so that will affect some of your pings positively and some negatively, but that can't be avoided.
The Renegade servers have already been moved to the new server, so that means the info you use to connect has changed:
For our Mission Co-Op server the new IP:Port is 220.127.116.11:4852.
and for the Turbo-Technologies DM server the new IP:Port is 18.104.22.168:8787.
What you can still expect in the next few days:
- AssaultCube servers move
- TS3 server move
- IRC server move
So keep an eye out for these address changes and you should not run into too much trouble, but be sure to let us know if you need help.

The big thing for me is that they have fixed the crashing issues and have balanced up the weapons. It is beautiful to play and while there are a couple of small bugs it is better and more refined than anything EA has produced recently.

In the past few weeks we've added several new maps to our Co-Op rotation.
- TTM1, a custom map featuring a massive dam, created by Zorid.
Screenshots of the map below:
There's also a trailer of the map which can be found in this post.
(If you don't have TT scripts 4.0 or 4.1, you can download a client version here)
You can find more info about TTM1 and any updates in this topic.
- 5 AOW maps have been transformed by ReKoil into Co-Op maps, namely:
Canyon, Hourglass, Volcano, Islands and Under.
ReKoil has made 2 trailers that feature these maps:
More info about ReKoil's maps and any updates can be found here.
All of the above maps, as well as TTM1 feature secrets, so roaming around is recommended
An updated version of M01 is now part of our Co-Op map rotation. This version was made by SarahDX and is the closest thing to an SP mission we've seen. It is completely serverside and works for 4.0 and non-4.0 users alike.
Images courtesy of SarahDX, more can be found here.
You can find a more detailed explanation of the map and the work that went into it here.
