Default Rendering Polygonal Models

I do low polygon models for games. I want to render them flatshaded (so that they are not automatically smoothed), but I'm not quite sure how to do it. For an example of the effect I want to achieve, see http://members.lycos.co.uk/rabbiteh/pictars/sp1/saru_render4.jpg picture. That was done in Milkshape 3d I believe, but it's the effect I'm going for, where you can see the individual faces very well. I played around with vector render for literally 5 minutes but all I got was a gray box. I think I messed up a setting or two

that just has a basic texture applied to the model....something like a lambert with nothing changed, and then rendered with GI or Final Gather or some similar setup.

I think you mean the normals. Goto edit polygons>Normals> SoftenHarden, Highlight all your edges and hit all hard, then hit apply. That shoudl be what your looking for.

Yep, adjust the soften/harden edges like you want. Should work for you.
