Known Issues

This section is for known compatibility issues that affect C&C Renegade.

Renegade has visual issues when running with an un-capped framerate, to fix this, make sure that vsync is enabled in the game settings.

If Renegade is installed via EA App, you will be unable to apply your game settings using the W3D Hub Launcher. Use WWConfig.exe, found in the game install folder instead.
