Forum Rules

CHANGES
  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.
Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.
General Behaviour
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention either in the title or the body of the post.
  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.

  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.

    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.
  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!

Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.
Examples:
So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.
A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.




Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

  • Any Way to Change Flamethrower to Slot 4?

    Is there any way to change to flamethrower to slot 4? Or a mutator that allows me to change the slot the weapon uses?

    I don't understand why it is slot 3, since you can't even use the husk cannon with it. If I run out of fuel with the flamethrower and go to heal a team mate or head shot a bloat, I have to tab through the empty flamethrower just to reach my MAC-10.

    I wouldn't mind it being on slot 3 if weapons with ammo had priority over empty ones.

    (The first time I made this thread it didn't post, if it pops up, sorry for duplicate.)

    Yeah, yeah. This and a lot of other stuff should be fixed:

        +1

        Having grenades explode on hitting a friendly would be very brutal, especially when on some games, you can't predict when that **** player keeps bobbing up and down and side to side in front of you.

        Having it just disappear would be a bit disappointing, especially on the slow fire rate of the M79.

        Aside from that, agree with every point made (even though I would be saddened to lose my free

          I have personally tried to make a mutator to force this but I have had no luck. I asked MGS Sniper to have a look and see if he gets the same thing and he did. I have a funny feeling this isn't just some number change but something TW may have accidently locked it. We might be in luck for the next patch from TW as they may change it back for us.

            Wimp

            Nah jk, lets be honest though, if you are playing in a Friendly Fire server, the last perk you pick should be Demo. Unless you are insanely disciplined then you shouldn't even think about it.

            KF is hard mostly due to its logic. In reality the players shouldn't be able to survive against these horrific monstrousities. Thats why most players like to be severely hindered in some way with each class. In non ff games Demo is a swine because there is a good risk you will kill yourself. In FF games the Demo is a swine because there is a high risk you will kill your teammates. But that is what a Demo would be like in real life, so I still think poosh is 100% right.


            I'll think of something to put here later....

              Eh, playing a demo, I'll kill myself perhaps once every 2-4 games? However, if FF was on, I'd expect to kill a teammate per wave, depending on how brutal the FF was.

              I played on a server with 100% FF yesterday. Seriously, wat? Kudos to people who can play on there, but that is WAY too hardcore for me :P A single misplaced shot from almost ANY perked weapon will seriously maim an ally, and quite a few guns will instakill him from 100:100.

              What I aim to do when I can get around to it is to set up keybinds as per the following:
              http://forums.tripwireinteractive.co...6&postcount=71

              And set it to key 6 for any duplicate weapons. ie. when playing firebug, 3 will pull out my flamethrower, 6 will pull out my MAC10. When playing zerker, 1 will grab katana, 6 will grab axe. When playing sharp, 2 will pull out HC, 6 will pull out 9mm etc etc.

              Just gotta remember not to take nonstandard loadouts for me xP No messing around with an axe as a sharp, otherwise I'll go to pull a gun and find a different one instead :P

                LoL yeah I remember playing Firebug sat in the church on West London (Old School) Suicidal on a 100% FF server. Ironically I was causing the fewest problems because at least the Medic had a bit of time to heal anyone who got hit, rather than watch someone die from a 9mm instantly.

                That game had so many laughs.

                I remember the Medic went to heal a teammate with the Mp7M and hit fire by mistake. Killed him instantly.

                The Support Specialist fired a double HS blast and 1 of the bullets nicked the arm of a teammate and took him to sod all health. He was killed a second later by a crawler.

                The single best one was as a Scrake came in and the Sharpshooter crouched and lined up to dink him, back then he could kill them instantly. I'm not sure why he crouched but whatever the reason it created this hilarious scenario. For some reason that support specialist ran forward to HS blast it just as the Sharpie fired. The Xbow bolt went through the Supps head, popping it instantly, through a gorefasts head and into the Scrakes head to kill them all.

                I wish I could download a video from my brain because honestly I have never seen a teamkill that looked so damned funny in my entire life.

                  XD I actually lolled. The embarressment the medic must have felt.

                  Most embarressing teamkill I've seen so far was on something like a 35% FF. THe round hadn't even STARTED yet, but it was on fonudrey W9 and everyone was jumpy, and my support friend ran round the corner, and saw someone else running towards him and instinctively fired the SG into his face and instantly killed him from 100:100.

                        I played FF servers a lot (including 100% FF), just because in a one time most of my friends started to play it. They said it make extra challenge - I said it is making the game ridiculous. Imo KF is not designed for friendly-fire. Maybe a minor one (up to 10%), but not more. I won some FF100% games too, but tbh I hate those games and played them to help my friends. And those, who choose demo perk on FF servers, mostly get vote-kicked as soon as possible.

                        Now about the subject (nades and rockets flying through player bodies). It makes demo slightly overpowered. Here I don't mean retarded teammates crossing line-of-fire. I'm talking about zerker or medic, who blocks FP and SC, and nades and rockets flying though them. Before this was introduced (last patch) blocking medic absorbed huge part of explosive damage (compare splash damage to instant hit to upper body/head, which makes ~2x damage). Now medic can block and demo shoot in the same time.

                          Aaaaaaaaaaaand? I don't see why is that bad?
                          Demo is already underpowered, for example LAW - how could it NOT insta-kill with 1 shot? OFC if it would that'd become OP though, but damn, if the rockets don't insta-kill, rockets are pricey, demos absorb so much money, and then if you decide to make them unable to shoot through players, and I'd love to point out demo is mostly back-liner not front-liner, he'd be totally pointless, and in tight areas they'd be so dead.

                            You guys should try reverse friendly fire sometime. It's pretty hilarious to be standing in a demo's stack of pipes when the patriarch sets them off and then see the demo fly into the air across the map

                            But this is one of the funniest friendly fire instances I've seen happen. Skip to about the 8 minute mark:
