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.

  • Release - [CGT] 3.0 with Search & Destroy

    [CGT] 3.0 will be released on
    Saturday 17th at 19:00 GMT (15:00 NYC)


    Gametypes
    Search & Destroy -- NEW --
    Description
    This is a 1-life gametype, with rounds that typically last up to 3-4 minutes. The attackers have to plant bomb(s) on objective(s) to destroy them, or they can eliminate the defenders. The defenders have to prevent the attackers from planting bomb(s), eliminate them, or defuse the bomb(s) if planted.

    Bomb
    Our implementation allows server admins to select between two options:
    • No physical bomb: everyone carries a bomb, but the number of plant(s) is limited. This option, much simpler, is generally to be used on pub servers.
    • With physical bomb(s): a physical bomb has to be picked on the ground, and carried to the objective. It is dropped when dying, and appears on the hud and map. This option should typically be used on competition servers.

    Scalability
    S&D is typically best played with 6-20 players, with 1 bomb and 2 objectives (1 destruction required). Our implementation supports any quantity of bombs and objectives. A single map can scale itself automatically based on the number of slots. For example, CGT_RSSD-Peleliu has a 1 bomb/2 objectives setup for 0-32 slots, and goes to 3 bombs/3 objectives for 32+ slots. However, the server admin can force one setup or the other.

    Features
    • Custom Bomb Asset
    • 1 Custom Stopwatch per Nation
    • Custom HUD & Map Icons (Bombs, Carriers and Objectives)
    • Custom Team Points Messages
    • Custom Sounds
    • And many more!

    Maps
    For the initial release of S&D, we have the following maps (bombs/objectives/req. destructions, size):
    • CGT_SD-Apartments (1/2/1, small)
    • CGT_SD-BarracksJail (1/2/1, small)
    • CGT_SD-FactoryPlateMill (1/2/1 & 3/3/2, large)
    • CGT_SD-FallenFighters (1/2/1, medium)
    • CGT_SD-StationNorthHall (1/2/1, medium)
    • CGT_SD-Warehouse (1/2/1, medium)
    • CGT_RSSD-HantoBase (1/2/1, large)
    • CGT_RSSD-Peleliu (1/2/1 & 3/3/2, large)
    • CGT_RSSD-SaipanSugarMill (1/2/1, medium)
    • CGT_RSSD-SaipanTown (1/2/1 & 3/3/2, large)

    The converted maps have an average size of 23 MBs, which results in a very quick download from a redirect.

    [CGT] Countdown -- USED ON TWIL --
    Description
    This is how the stock Countdown used to be, with some improvements. The time to beat is the total time, not only the time on the last objective. With CGT_CD, it is possible to capture one objective further. The Progression Widget has been overhauled to explain these modified conditions of victory. Also, the automatic reinforcements can be disabled.

    Changes
    The rules haven't changed, but we now have CGT_RSSD. In other words, any Rising Storm map can play the CGT version of Countdown.

    Maps
    ALL (RO2 and RS) stock maps now supported (including MCP)!

    Capture The Flag
    Description
    This is the classic gametype that you may have played in many other games. You have to take the flag of the enemy and bring it to your own flag bay to capture it. You can only capture when your own flag is home. The team that captures the most flags wins.

    Changes
    Nothing major for this one, except that some bugs have been fixed and some maps have been updated.

    Maps
    • CGT_CTF-Apartments
    • CGT_CTF-Barracks
    • CGT_CTF-GrainElevator
    • CGT_CTF-Spartanovka
    • CGT_CTF-Station
    • CGT_CTF-Warehouse

    Server Preload
    The files will be available to server admins 24-48h before the release. To get the links, send me a PM. The only condition is that the maps have to be run password-protected until the release occurs (see at the top for exact date and time).

    Credits
    [CGT] 3.0 is the result of more than 1000+ hours of work, cumulted by a team of enthusiastic modders. I want to be the first to thank all [CGT] Developers, and congratulate them on this amazing release. I also want to thank all Testers that helped us to test the gameplay, find bugs and helped with their excellent suggestions.

    I hope to see more guys in the server playing SnD now that it's ranked! It's a refreshing new way to play the game while staying tactical. It's the only way I can play now after having burnt myself out on TE.

      Love the Search and Destroy game type and glad that its ranked now. Is there anyway to pre-load the CGT-SD maps without using the server re-direct?

        I might put it on Workshop only for preload purposes, but that's to be confirmed. S&D is not enjoyable in single player.

          On the occasion of the official release of CGT 3.0, we are organizing an European S&D evening. It will be the chance for you to discover S&D on the following servers:
          [HS] : 91.121.21.122:7877
          {G.F.A} : 217.163.24.142:7808
          [SK] : 217.163.31.244:7787

          Rendez-vous on these servers, on Saturday the 17th, at 19:00 GMT!

          Seen you !

            I hope more people will be willing to try this. You know how this community reacts with almost anything new or different. I suggest you all try it out with an open mind and try to avoid being negative over it just because it's a game mode that has been in other games.

              Loving this

              Man, I just hopped on a server running the mod and it looks great so far. I'm going to get a bunch of our members get on an do some real testing (and post results, of course).

              I have one question though: Will there be a "Mover\Visual Guide" feature to allow quick changes to plant\bomb\spawn locations? Or will our map makers need to do that on a map-by-map basis?

              And can I get a copy of the mod to load on our test (Private) server? We will allow anyone on to test.

                I don't think Thor plans on letting anyone have a copy of the mod until the release date. Just be patient.

                  It's definitely better with humans! Add me on steam, when your group is on the server, if they are interested, I could toggle the server into the "physical bomb" mode, which is generally prefered by competitive clans.

                  Unfortunately it's not possible to just edit some config parameter to change the location of an objective, mainly because it requires the lighting and paths to be rebuilt on the map. However, we will provide an Development Kit for Independent Mappers, which contains the unpublished versions of our maps.

                  Then you can easily rename a map, reposition the objectives to create any setup you want, alter the boundaries, etc. The tools we provide allow to cook custom or converted maps in a way that keeps compatibility with the mod. The IMDK should be released on Thursday. I suggest that you have a look at this thread: http://forums.tripwireinteractive.co...ad.php?t=93956

                  We will allow server admins to preload the mod, at the condition that they keep their server password-protected before the release occurs. I will send the link to the packages on Thursday. Please send me a PM so I can remember more easily who I need to send the links to.

                      From the rules page: http://www.risingstormgame.com/index...=article&id=91

                      "Implement all standard RS/Red Orchestra 2 gameplay functionality (cover slots, map boundaries, spawn areas, objectives, ammo resupplies, etc) unless the map implements a custom gametype in code (in which case all gameplay functionality must be implemented to support that custom gametype)"

                        But also:
                        "Support at least Territory game mode (Countdown and Firefight are optional)"

                        From what I understand, the map *must* support TE and all its functionalities. If you *also* support a custom game type, then all gameplay functionality of that gametype must be implemented.

                            I love one-life gametypes, so I can't wait to play this.

                            I bet CTF could be fun, too, assuming the maps play properly.
