Hello, really late to this, but I need some help with this


The archive.org link mentions how there's a crack for Renderware Studio included with the download, but I'm not seeing it anywhere?

Can someone please help me out?

Looking forward to it, I'm having issues installing it.

Nevermind, I installed a fresh new Windows XP VM and got it to work.

I don't think everything I did needs to be done exactly the same for it to work, but here's what I did:

1) Changed the system date to June 30th, 2004.
2) Ran the Studio setup. Said 'no' when it asks if I wanted a permanent license.
3) Installed 'Microsoft Forms Library' with the exe provided by Microsoft here. (direct link) I've archived this direct link on the wayback machine too.
4) RenderWare Studio ran successfully.

I don't know why my previous VM didn't work, maybe it was because it wasn't Service Pack 3, like this new VM is.

okay, used VMWare with 3D acceleration and now it works.
also i didn't change date to 2004.

P.S. is there any way to get Renderware Audio?

Super cool! I did not see this crack release. A lot of cool games built from here. Now I have something new to play with. ;)

Wow. Pretty cool to see the actual Renderware studio reaching the hands of those on the outside. Neat!

I really wish there was an easier way to use this ngl

If there was a way to get the SDK running on modern versions of Windows that would be gold

Know how to bypass this? Using VirtualBox

Similarly, Max 6 has this error:

It's been a while since I last fiddled with it, but I believe VirtualBox 6.1+ changed some stuff with 3D acceleration in XP and thus it's not supported anymore

So your best bet is to either try VMWare or downgrade to 6.0

Hmm, using 6.0.18 now, and it's still showing the same error message. DX9 is installed....

Honestly I think for ease-of-use I'm going to see if I can export the XP virtual machine with everything pre-installed

Give me a little while while I re-learn how to set up everything

Well, good news:
Using VMWare, I was able to get Renderware installed quite literally with no issues.

So if you're looking to tinker around with this, don't use VirtualBox.

I haven't done anything beyond getting everything set up, I just needed to get the basics out of the way first.

I have bundled everything needed for setup into one convenient place, as well as additional instructions:

If any issues arise for installation, please let me know.


EDIT:
It looks like Visual Studio .NET 2003 is needed, according to the Studio manual:

Currently looking for a link

I think that's literally JUST for code compiling for builds directly, which is still nuts we have the editor. Your Mega link seems broken though

Unfortunately VMware is giving me this trash...

Let me choose my E drive! ;_;

Have you tested Max 6 with it? I'm away from home currently, but it'd be awesome if it works with this
Haven't tried Max or Maya with this yet

Currently the goal is to simply figure out how to get one of the pre-made demos that Studio comes with to compile for PS2 - Me and joshuawthomspon have tried to take stabs at it, but no progress has been made sadly


Both of us are going to need as much help as physically possible; anybody who can help from either this site or beyond would be vastly appreciated
