Westwood has opened a page with tips for running the Command & Conquer Renegade demo, showing how to filter out non-dedicated servers, and emphasizing the amount of bandwidth required to run servers for various numbers of players. Adding to that, Jason "Liquid" Austgen sends along a tip for server administrators, suggesting to update the BandwidthUp variable in the game's server.ini file to 1.5 megabits per 16 players instead of the default 1 megabits (still adjusting the variable by ratio of the number of players that will be allowed). Last but not least, a post titled Update for 2/16/02 on the official forums (thanks dryhump) has word from Westwood's Dan Cermak on an imminent demo patch "that will autodetect whether you can host a game and also tell you the max number of people we recommend for your game. Each host will be required to be a dedicated server as well."
