Welcome Back, Commander!

Welcome to the first patch on our road to the FINAL version of Renegade X! Starting this year, we'll be adding in new content and bug fixes as a part of the FINAL version - a.k,a. Version 1.0 - roster. This update includes a lot of quality of life features, bug fixes and gameplay adjustments to refine the experience even more.


Chemical Warrior

Something never felt right with the Chemical Warrior character, so we've addressed that with a brand new character model taking much more resemblance to its OG counterpart. Much better than a Black Hand Sniper paintjob, right?



New Map! Mines

We're pleased to announce that we're adding in CNC-Mines (created by community member a newly appointed staff member @Njorl). He has been working hard to update the with the recently gained feedback from the public playtest. Check it out!



Overview Menu

We've redesigned the Overview Menu to give more information regarding your team and the battlefield. The amount of EPIC Characters are now also being displayed. In addition to that, the Airstrike zone is now also being displayed once the target has been painted!



Revealed Position

For the first time in Renegade X' history, we're bringing in a new feature that originally comes from Firestorm! Commanders can now spot enemies, but those enemies will get notified about that their position has been revealed.

  • Fixed not being unspotted if you died
  • Fixed an issue with firing directly after reloading that caused weapons to not display as firing for other players, causing invisible damage
  • Fixed an issue where vehicle FOV was causing remote clients to see vehicles aiming in the wrong spot. This happened a lot when firing into tunnels on Field, for example, and caused a lot of invisible damage

  • Forest:
    • Reverted the Winter version back to its regular counterpart
  • Goldrush:
    • Fixed characters and vehicles appearing pitch black in most parts of the map
    • Updating a lot of rock compositions that are less stretched out and more natural looking (Visually they are more appealing)
    • Gave the advanced base defences more sight over the entrance again instead of sitting behind a rock and not having much of a purpose
    • Moved the rock arch in front of the Obelisk more up so it won't block the view of the crystal

What's next?

We hope with this patch out we can continue the development of the 1.0 version of this game. We already have some things in the works that will come in the near future. That includes the release of the most anticipated map at this moment: City. One other thing that is almost near completion is another character model! I hope he brings more "Firewood" to this game.


Until next time!

The ctd issue in skirmish is still occurring, hasn't changed in like 2 years.

All efforts have been elsewhere and for the remaining future I wouldn't expect that to change.

I understand, I meant no disrespect, I apologize if it came off that way. Thanks for the response.
