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.

Do you feel RO2 is ready for more content to be added?

    I think the game can handle some basics, for example that native language option we've been patiently waiting for. I wonder if TWI still has an intention on even adding it?

The most important thing is that this content is free. I personally feel like it isn't right to pay for additional content if the game isn't stabilized and fixed. It think it is very important to move slowly with all this and let it takes it time. It is very important to create a good foundation before dlc's and such are fixed otherwise people might leave the game anyway due to it's current flaws.
      I agree, their's no point putting nice shiny new wheels on a car with a broken engine.

        Do people not realize the SDK is already available by just in a thread in the modding section?

        My performance skyrocketed after the last patch. The only issues I have remaining is the stuttering i sometimes get when ADS and the fact that if I turn of DOF everything is really dark.

          New maps and SDK would be great...

            The question isn't if RO2 is ready for new content, the question how long it takes to make a map or a vehicle.

            For the most stuff, TWI is doing stuff with the sourcecode of the game, which means the coders have their hands full. The rest of the team, can use their time to optimize existing maps and vehicle, and start on new maps and vehicle. BUT because of the detail of vehicles and maps, it will take a while before they're ready for release.

            And before they can even start on these things, they have to research the vehicle or the area the want as a map (since they take actual battlegrounds in stalingrad).

            So, I think it will take atleast 2 months, before they release something new.

              New content is far, far, far more likely to help solve existing bugs than it is to introduce new ones.

              Content such as maps and the like are simply data that is processed by the game. The game really doesn't care if this data is a flat plane and a few cubes, or if it is a very complex building. New bugs are very unlikely to be created from introduction of new code. Instead, any 'new' bugs that are introduced by new content, such as new maps and the like, are actually existing bugs that are already there. We just don't see them as the current content wouldn't expose them, or doesn't expose them often.


              New content, made by people who have little to nothing to do with fixing bugs, means that more information on the bugs may be gathered. More information on bugs means a far, far easier time narrowing things down so you can actually Fix the bug.


              Earn a degree in Computer Sciences, and you will quickly learn that understanding the cause of a bug is many many times as hard as actually fixing it.

                    Wait just one second you want new DLC but they have yet to release the full game ?

                    We are missing half the game still.

                    For starters we are missing a so called Skirmish Mode seen in E3.

                    We are missing a practice mode skirmish mode may be better it depends what they want to do.

                    And we are also missing the FULL SDK.


                    But hell why dont we just add several weapons and a new map with some DLC im sure everyone will never want the rest of the game anyway....

                    I feel like a minority but im PROUD MINORITY.

                      You guys are hilarious

                      I have to run on low graphics (which looks worse than Ro1) so I'm waiting for a new comp anyway... but if I come back in January and there's no SDK or native languages or servers running realism mods without CoD aspects I'm gonna FLIP THE **** OUT

                        I was supposed to build a new rig like 2 years ago. It's obsolete now.
                        By the time I set my obsolete rig up (hopefully next week), I hope to...damn.

                          Is the lecture finished? nobody needs a degree in Computer Sciences to know that what this game needs is fixing, something the 7-8 patches haven't succeeded in doing so far, take a look at the support part of the forum and ask the guys posting there, if they would rather have their problems fixed or new content.
                          And since you chose to ignore the other 2/3 of my post i'll restate some of it again:

                          "FIX THE SOUND BUG FIRST TWI, I'M SICK OF PLAYING WITH NO SOUND.
                          What would be the point of having new tanks, vehicles or weapons, if i can't hear a bloody thing"

                          So my answer to the OP question is, no, this game isn't ready for new DLC yet.

                              I'd rather have them work hard at optimizing.

                              Then have a map-making contest once people start to get the SDK.

                              Host the finalists on the TW servers and have a vote system to gauge player enjoyment.

                              After its all done, TW can give the winning maps a final face-lift to bring them in-line with the rest of the levels and BAM! New maps (like they did with Killing Floor).

                                Fix bugs and optimize first, and give us some proper Realism settings.

                                Oh, and hopefully the full SDK release so mappers can get to work on custom maps
