> this is actually the best solution i've seen yet for the RTS games. i'd prefer to see BHS in charge of renegade though. i actually like the idea of a company giving some of this to fans. but there are of course still concerns since i, like many gamers, have seen a lot of jerks who just like to ruin a game for kicks. i'm sure many of us have even seen people who seem like upstanding citizens turn into cheaters/script kiddies/jerks/etc.

Olaf has written most of the important editing tools that are used to modify the C&C based games by those that enjoy doing such things. If you've ever played any mods for RA2/YR for example, they were only possible because of work done by Olaf. XWIS is server software written by Olaf after he reverse engineered the protocols that WOL used AFAIK and has been operating as a fan run server for some time already.
