Command and Conquer Renegade Cheats, Tips, and Tricks
This first person shooter requires players to use the commands in the game effectively. Most of the cheats can be accessed by the use of a simple command. The command varies depending on the patch of the game the player uses. To enter the console mode, similar to the chat mode used in the Warcraft and Starcraft series, hit the ~ (tilde) key.
It is often useful to see a person’s frame per second. Hit the tilde key and enter the fps command. The game shows the computer's frame rate. If it’s too low, it could be a hint that you need to adjust your graphics settings or that you need a better graphics card. While the frames per second command is useful, it seldom gives a gamer an extra edge.
All the useful commands in Command and Conquer Renegade start with the prefix extras.
If you are the host and want to end the session, hit the character and type game over. All the clients are shut down. For players, who like the author, are not good at games that require coordination, Command and Conquer Renegade offers a cheat that allows you to get extra player characters.

You can gain unlimited time if you enter the game in skirmish mode, but you must do this by editing the text file. Open Notepad, go to the directory where the Renegade game is stored. Click on the data file. Open the file srvrcfg_skirmish.ini. When you find the time limit entry, set it to zero. You now have unlimited time to play the game.
Changing the Size of Vehicles
You can change the size of the vehicles you encounter in the game. Press F8 when in a vehicle and type, edit_vehicle. Editing air vehicles require special caution. Set the values too high and you may not be able to use them. You may also crash the game.
A Few General Tips
Command and Conquer Renegade is a first person shooter that has many weapons. The bosses require different strategies, but the easiest thing to remember when going through the game the first time is to experiment with weapons. Petrov, for example, is easily killed by a head shot from a pistol. If you see a soda machine in a tiberium field be sure to unleash your flamethrower upon it.
