[edit] What is RenGuard?

RenGuard is an Anti-Cheat product created by Blackhand Studios to protect Renegade from cheaters. Basically it only prevents its users from cheating, but it's also possible to force someone to use RenGuard on a server, which then prevents that guy from coming to cheat at the server again.
