Direct Connect (Instructions)
« on: April 17, 2007, 11:25:30 PM »

Both I and a few other users have been asked many times over the past few days how to direct connect via in-game and IRC, so I am posting it here so everyone now has a reference.

Step 1: Take your Renegade Shortcut and copy & paste it onto your desktop (Even if you already have a shortcut there, you need another!)

Step 2: Right-Click, Choose Properties, and in the "Target" Box, paste this:

                -BCServ5:  C:\Westwood\Renegade\Renegade.exe +connect 178.143.141.202:4193 +netplayername KobraDan

Step 3: Edit the following parts:

              -Where it says "KobraDan" Put your name
              -Where it says "C:\Westwood\Renegade\Renegade.exe", make sure it matches your directory (What it said before you copied 
                   and pasted)
              -I recommend editting the "Copy of Renegade.exe" (name) and putting BCServ4/BCServ5.

Gratz! Now all you have to do to join the server is click the shortcut, it will do the rest for you!

Thanks for this, it'll be really useful so I've made this topic a sticky.

If you want to run it straight from IRC, use this:

BCServ4: /run C:\Program Files\Westwood\Renegade\Renegade.exe +connect 209.62.58.130:4794 +netplayername nicknamehere
BCServ5: /run C:\Program Files\Westwood\Renegade\Renegade.exe +connect 209.62.58.130:9051 +netplayername nicknamehere

Not with their mod/vip nicknames unless their IP is given an exception.

If the protection wasn't there, anyone could direct connect using a mod's nickname and start kicking random people. So all mods have to use XWIS unless their IP is allowed to direct connect.

Actually they couldn't because they'd have to identify first, and to identify they'd need to be on XWIS in order to page the server. What it would allow is for anyone to impersonate a mod, and if they're smart they could do something like ask another mod to tempmod them because they weren't able to get on XWIS for some reason.

Download the .exe file. It will install a direct connect application designed for BC and enable you to direct connect to BC servers with the use of a GUI.
It does more then that, but try it and see. =]

To which the mod replies, "go do it yourself from IRC" or in the case of VIP's "Asking is bad :("
