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.

  • Ports used by Killing Floor

    The following is a list of ports used by Killing Floor. Make sure they are open in your router/firewall. (You will need these to host a listen server)

    7707 UDP/IP (Game Port)
    7708 UDP/IP (Query Port)
    7717 UDP/IP (GameSpy Query Port)
    28852 TCP/IP and UDP (Allows your Server to Connect to the Master Server Browser)
    8075 TCP/IP (Port set via ListenPort that your WebAdmin will run on)
    20560 UDP/IP (Steam Port)


    Another setting you might have to deal with when hosting a listen server in your killingfloor.ini is:

    ServerBehindNAT=False Set it to True

    Handy internet tools I've been pointed too (thanks Sarkie) to test if your ports are open - GRC Shields Up https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

    Useful website for people who do not know how to open ports on their router/firewall

    http://portforward.com/

    Also to find out your routers IP

    In XP : Go to start -> Run -> type in "cmd" -> type in "ipconfig" in the prompt that comes up -> Look for your internet adapter usually either 'Wireless LAN' adapter or 'Ethernet Adapter' and it's IPv4 Address is the IP you want.
    For Vista : Press start/windows button -> type in cmd in search and press enter-> type "ipconfig" in the prompt that comes up ->Look for your internet adapter usually either 'Wireless LAN' apapter or 'Ethernet Adapter' and it's IPv4 Address is the IP you want.

    Half borrwed this info from korncob on the steam forums as he asked if someone could post something here about it.

      All of these ports must be allowed on router ? Because a troublesome game like medieval 2 requires just 1 port on router or a range of ports , dont remember.
      it just kind of feels odd filling up so many lines in the router config which doesnt have a lot of them to fill in

        the ports on this thread are different from the ports that are mentioned when you try making a listen server. is it all of them that have to be open?

              I agree; wouldn't using, say, ports 7715-7717 or something for the first 3 be easier?

                  Can't play multiplayer

                  I have disabled firewalls on my PC and on my BT Home Hub (modem-router); I have also edited the setting "ServerBehindNAT=True" in KillingFloor.ini file and followed other recommendations too. The result is still the same - I still can't play multiplayer.

                  I can see the servers, I can even connect to some of them, but either from very beginning or a minute later the game freezes.

                  Solo mode works flawlessly on max settings; OS: Windows Vista Business

                  (I can't write a review as the multiplayer is unplayable)

                      The worst thing is Yosh - the Steam integration. Joining through friends is ridiculously picky. I have my IP in the DMZ so theres no doubt that nothing is blocking it, but only one guy can join my server through Steam then everyone can join through him. Seriously need to look into that.

                      My friends are trying to host but completely unsuccessfully, they've opened the ports but we just cant see the server and obviously cant join through Steam. Also for him its apparently hosting on LAN - or at least its visible to his brother in the LAN area.

                        if it's showing up in the lan, then most likely the ports are not opened. i had that problem with synergy. i would see the game in the lan tab but not in the internet tab. i had to get a static ip and then open 27015 (something like that - it's the port synergy requires) and that stopped it. i think maybe your friend port forwarded, but maybe does not have a static ip so it's not working. there's a website that lets you check if you have those ports open... https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

                        just scroll down click proceed all the way at the bottom, type in all the ports kf requires and click user specified custom port probe. if it's closed or stealth, then obviously the ports aren't opened. see if the ports are indeed opened before doing anything else or looking for further help.

                          I have gotten all ports opened and got DMZ on and my friends and other people are still unable to join my server, I've tried just about anything and nothing just works. Although with that website to check ports it says closed and it doesnt recognize em but when I look at my ports with PFPortChecker it says all of those ports are open so I don't really see what the problem is anymore to be honest.


                          Thanks,

                          Dave.

                            Maybe being the dmz and having the ports are causing an issue. I have a dlink myself at home and I believe it gives me issues when I am both the dmz and have ports pointed at me.

                              hehe it's no longer necessary, decided to just buy me a server for a few months and save me the hassle, thanks for the advice though
