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.

  • GFX Tweak Mod - 4GB Video Ram Preferred

    WAY BEYOND ULTRA HIGH CONFIG FILE PLUS SOME EXPERIMENTAL STUFF TO AROUND INSANELY HIGH

    Runs Best On ANY GPU. Insane shadow resolution of 4096, tons of texels per pixel on those high def shadows. Enhanced light map and texture map density levels. Slightly adjust gamma and brightness for realism. Blured and nice looking shadows for the moment but will improve them. I find how this config looks is very very nice! Audio Mods** Too so it's just way more intense "Ear Ringing" gameplay overall! Just let me know and we can change things.

    This is still a test run so nothing is final on quality etc.

    ***DOWNLOAD LINKS***

    **NEW VERSIONS** - Based on game version 2.0.0.19 as of 2/12/2015

    v1.2.1 - Based on BUG FREE v1.2.0 - We could potentially see some bugs on this so bare with me. This is a slightly modified version of v1.2.0 with minimal audio distortion and higher detail levels.

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/5mbc70ko4d7lgxh/Rising+Storm-RO2-UNREAL-EXTREME-CONFIG_v1.2.1-Fresh-Ultra+2.rar

    **OLD VERSIONS** None of these work anymore

    v1.2.0 - Started from scratch - fresh new version - BUG FREE (Let me know)

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/q4...sh-Ultra_1.zip

    (BEST LOOKING DARK VERSION)

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/b3...ONFIG_v1.1.zip

    (BEST LOOKING BRIGHT VERSION)

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/i4...1.1-BRIGHT.zip

    (BEST LOOKING BRIGHT NO AUDIO MOD VERSION)

    http://www.mediafire.com/download/sm..._AUDIO_MOD.zip

    **DIRECTIONS**

    Read the readme...

    Make sure to use my .bat which u need to copy to c:\ or your desktop and execute it. It just simply deletes the CleanINIs.bat to make it easy on you guy's. I included the original clean backup of it in the config download just in case. Then copy ROEngine.ini and overwrite your current config. Open and search for "1920" and change to your custom resolution of choice.


    **SCREENSHOTS**

      Try it out because it'll scale to any amount just not sure on performance. I'd give it a shot, very cool.

          This looks amazing and runs very smooth. I dislike the audio mod though, would rather vanilla

            The title kind of doesn't do it justice. It will scale to any video card, and It should run just fine on just about any system.

            thx

              Wow, your screenshots make the game look beautiful! It's no wonder the game files are so large, they don't compress the textures. If only I had a machine that could run this.

                On this version of the mod unlike my old one on my old thread from general, we will have standard texture scaling. It's possible to render all textures at max resolution which puts huge load on the gpu's but requires huge performance.

                I suppose I'll take some time to make a full experimental config with raw textures and zero scaling just for stuffs and giggles.

                In regards to the textures they are highly compressed and being streamed so you get good fps. They should have used ultra high raw perfect textures and started from there. I see tons of horrible low resolution textures.

                After some testing it appears to run fine on any graphic card I tested. I'd give it a shot and in a hurry, your missing out.

                Thanks yeah I found out it runs perfectly on almost any video card even with less than 1GB.

                Audio wise it's just enhanced and amplified "LowPassFilterResonance" and "SoundFXVolume" which are synced at a 1:1 ratio I found to sound optimal.

                What didn't you like about the audio? Thanks

                What do you mean "Would rather vanilla"?

                  Vanilla = pre modification (as in, what you get is plain old vanilla ice cream, anything else is a bonus). So he prefers the game before your tweaks.

                  I'll be testing this now. Should be able to do comparison screenshots in a bit. Arma 3 dev branch is receiving a big update so I may be 6+ hours "late" on delivering anything.

                      @ ALL

                      New Config files for "bright" and "bright no audio mod" versions. For those who prefer it that way.

                          I tried this but was getting strange effects on distant buildings etc.

                          Might be because I am also running sweetFX.

                          I didn't have much time to mess around but I will give it another go and turn off sweet FX.

                            I haven't tried this yet. Should sweetfx be disabled if using this?

                              Yes, Disable SweetFX. Since SweetFX attempts to do exactly what I'm doing.

                              However my result should far out perform SweetFX in primarily Quality, but Performance is out standing.

                              I have noticed some minor minor issues in shadows only but they are so small it's hard to get it 100% perfect. I will keep working on it though to get it to perfection. Post screenshots of glitches and things you find messed up looking.

                              That way I can fix them for yall
