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.

    • Is there any kind of status on this bug? It takes me an average of 5-10 tries until the game loads. This has been the case since on or near launch.

          • It's in documents/my games/ Red Orchestra 2. After last patch, my game would freeze at launch splash (CPU monitor showed 100%), had to task manager out of it. I installed latest ATI driver (11.11 I think), deleted all RO2 stuff I could find including the documents folder as above, then ran CCleaner (a registry/file checker program) then reinstalled the game, started it and again froze at splash screen, task manager'd out, then deleted again the documents/my games / Red Orchestra 2 folder again, restarted the game and.......it now works, have had to restart several times for graphics changes etc, but it is now working....so what "fixed" it?, donno....

                I have tried everything PUTZ suggested .. everything everyone else suggested .. everything you did and more.
                Mine still hangs at the splash screen with an empty launch log.

                Maybe I will try unistalling .. maunally clean the registry, and try one more time .. but it seems that someone from Tripwire could at least offer some suggestions for this long running problem.

                • I manually cleaned my own registry and it does nothing, don't bother trying, Lethall... :/

                  Comment


                  • The only thing I did between the last splash freeze and the successful start was to delete the documents/my games/Red Orchestra 2 folder, makes you wonder if there is any chance there is/are corrupt files being installed in the documents....Red Orchestra 2 folder from some Steam content servers? At Lethall, you might want to add your system specs to your signature. I have heard that manually editing/cleaning your registry can be dangerous if you don't know exactly what you are doing, this program http://majorgeeks.com/CCleaner_Slim_d4191.html is free and you can create a backup before you clean, just my 2 cents.

                      Thanks for taking the time to post oldslowguy.

                      I have been building gaming systems since 1997 and have listed my specs in several threads in these forums.

                      And yes, manually cleaning the registry can be very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing, but I have done it many times with other games for several gamers.
                      You are correct though that one wrong deletion and you could end up with a computer that no longer boots.

                      I have used CCleaner for years and it is a good program for free .. and as you suggest .. make sure anyone who uses it to clean the registry backs up the entire registry first.
                      I have never had a problem, but there is a first time for everything.

                      Another program I use is Acronis True Image. (Or any good similar program can be used)
                      I normally backup my entire C: drive before installing any new patches, or other major changes.
                      If there is a problem, you can restore an image of the drive to the exact state before the change.
                      This also comes in handy when building a new computer.
                      I create new images after each step with installation, Win updates, drivers, etc.
                      Much easier to restore than to reformat and reinstall.

                      Thanks for the suggestions .. I will figure it out sooner or later.
                      It appears TWI is unable to find a solution as yet.

                      • Just to let you know .. I have installed RO2 on 2 older computers, and they both load and run fine.
                        I just can't get my gaming rig to get past the splash screen and can't seem to find a solution although this rig will run any other game I throw at it.
                        This one is running Xp pro and similar to one that works but is running Vista Ultimate 32 bit. (I hate Vista but it was free)
                        The other one that will run RO2 is a smaller older system I use for everyday tasks and is also running XP Pro.

                        So I have an E8400 Wolfdale @ 3.6 with XP Pro that won't launch.
                        An E8400 Wolfdale @ 3.6 with Vista Ultimate that runs fine.
                        (I used to use this for video editing and decided to try it out of curiousity)
                        An E5200 Wolfdale @ 3.3 with XP Pro that runs fine.

                        I just need to find out what the difference is, and the reason I have stayed with this is 2 fold.
                        1- I would like to run RO2 on my game machine
                        2- I would like to help the other gamers here who also have the splash screen issue find a solution for their problem.

                        Most don't have the luxury of owning several systems.

                        • I'm still suffering the problem, so unfortunately I still haven't found have a fix.

                          The only thing I can recommend is to keep your task manager open and watch the processes, if RO2 says 'Responding' then 'Not Responding' but then changes to 'Responding' again you know it's going to launch so you can close the TM and enjoy the game. If it stays on 'Not Responding' close it and relaunch the game. This saves me a few minutes of frustration, rather than waiting for it to crash every time.

                          • Well, the problem has returned...... Funny, after this post I started it again and left it "trying", after about 5 min it started up...go figure Edit:....it starts everytime but it takes about/more than 5 min of waiting at the splash screen. Edit: The game definitely runs better after the 12-8-11 update, still somewhat slow to start, but a bit better.

                            • Lol, it's funny to think that, at first I thought Tripwire would fix this issue in no time, and that I just had to wait max one week...

                              Comment


                              • It seems everyone including Tripwire has given up on this issue.
                                Most gamers with this problem have likely given up on the game and these forums long ago.

                                3 months and no solution or even suggestions to try?
