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.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • 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.
  • To make the highlighted bits above 100% clear to everyone, the following WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.
    2. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    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!
DO NOTs
  • DO NOT Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or graphic files, or other materials ("Content") that is unlawful (including illegal drug usage), harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful or racially, ethnically, sexually or otherwise objectionable. This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet. This also means you may NOT publically share private communications (PM, email or anything else) without the original poster's permission.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any Content that contains a virus, Trojan horse or other mischievous Content.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.
  • DO NOT link to posts on any other forums, or any other form of media, that breaches our rules. It will be treated just the same as if you had posted it here.
  • DO NOT Double Post, cross Post or restart closed threads.
  • DO NOT Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, rule or regulation.
  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.
  • DO NOT post cheats or exploits; THIS INCLUDES ALL/ANY REFERENCES TO HACKING, PIRATED SOFTWARE etc.
  • DO NOT complain about being banned from a server and DO NOT complain about other players on servers - that is between you and the admin, no need to get the community involved.
Username, Avatar and Signature Rules
  • Multiple registrations result in a ban.
  • No offensive user names
  • Avatars:
    Avatars are disabled.
  • All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, you can have both text and images
  • - For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 100 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. 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.

    Christmas Zeds for KF-EvilSantasLair

    Sorry, but since it's coming up to Christmas I've decided to remove the files to give TWI the option to decide whether people should be playing with these specimens or not.

    You knew someone would make it, and here it is. Been experimenting with it the past few days and it seems I've solved the freezing issue when new specimens spawn, which is an added bonus.

    Why only for KF-EvilSantasLair? Because I agree with many others that if we saw them all the time they would become stale, and I feel they fit this map more than others. I'm going to apply for this to be put on the greylist (and the greylist only), since I know that TWI do not want to whitelist such a mutator.

    Additionally, I'd like to point out that all of the christmas media files were removed in the latest update, and you will need to download and install the copy of the files I backed up. I assume TWI have no problem with me redistributing these files, but if so I will take them down and there will be no mutator (and I will cry).

    How To Enable

    You have two options for adding these christmas zeds to the game:
    1. Use the included mutator. This switches to an extended gametype when the christmas map is detected, which uses the christmas specimens and performs preloading in the same way the christmas update did, as well as manually preloading all specimens. When the mutator is disabled or another map is switched to, the gametype is switched back to KFMod.KFGameType. You do not need to add anything to serverpackages.

    2. Add ChristmasZeds and KFChar_XMAS to serverpackages and enable sandbox mode. Alter the sandbox configuration to use these specimens:

      Code:
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieClot_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieCrawler_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieGoreFast_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieStalker_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieScrake_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieFleshpound_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieBloat_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieSiren_XMas
      KFChar_XMAS.ZombieHusk_XMas
    Note that you cannot replace the boss with the christmas patriarch; this is a limitation of sandbox mode.

    Enjoy!

      @Braindead:

      I understand your concern, but I and certain others feel that TWI have put too much effort into these zeds for them to be put away for a year, and possibly not brought out again (who knows how popular this game is going to be in a year's time?).

      I've just spoken to Yoshiro about it and he says it's not a problem, although they'll never whitelist or greylist it, which is fair. To be honest considering the fact that it's on a map that many players won't play so often (since it's challenging) and the fact that the media files are huge, it's probably not going to be used a lot. I just wanted to throw the mutator out there since I knew someone probably would, and at least this one limits it to a single map.

      Again, TWI, if you do change your minds in the future and would rather this mutator didn't exist I'll take it down. Just couldn't let all that work to go to waste, since some of us really enjoy the wacky skins and voices.

        Tried it and everything seems dandy. Fine work.

        Just as a thought, however, even though it's not your responsibility, I think it would have been appropriate to fix the Christmas Siren not playing her correct Xmas "talk" lines. Since the Twisted Christmas event began, the Christmas Siren has simply been using the original Siren dialog, leaving the new speech lines in her sound package completely unused and basically just wasting space. Since TWI isn't going to grey/whitelist this mutator, it seems like it would be a harmless fix to make.

          Ah, I didn't even realise she had her own lines. I'll look into it, thanks!

                I dont really see why you wouldnt whitelist it. Its only for one map. It is to Tripwire to decide i think.

                  And they already stated they would never white-list anyone trying to bring back Christmas Zeds outside of the holidays.

                      A short video showing you guys that the mutator works great, and the performance on this map is a lot better then it use to be.

                      YouTube - Killing Floor: Mutator - Christmas Specimens ??

                        The only reason I suspect on why they won't whitelist it is the possibility of getting xmas achievements that involve the xmas zeds and unlocking the Bad Santa skin

                          actually, Yosh explained it entirely; he said that they felt that having the option to use them year-round would spoil them from being special during their official release. Or that was the official reason, anyways

                          I used to have a pointless signature, but those days are past.

                              I'd like to thank you for doing this. This will be my first time trying a mutator or sandbox. Where do you put the files and how do you get everything to work?
