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.

  • RO windows Server Auto restart on crash.

    I have read several Admins having problems with crashes and having to manually restart their servers.
    With this in mind I thought I would release our windows server auto restart code which my Clan The Wild Bunch apply to all our servers via a .bat file.
    If you run a windows based server then the simplest way to set this up is to make a shortcut of your RO_server.bat file and place it on the desktop.
    Edit the shortcut and place the following code inside.

    YOU WILL NEED TO EDIT THE CODE TO SUIT THE PATH OF YOUR OWN INSTALLATION AS I HAVE SHOWN IN RED and of course replace the command line (in green) with your own.


    @echo off
    title RO Public server
    echo Look at the top of the window.
    echo.
    cd c:\ROOst
    set GameText===== RO Public server ====
    set GameCmd=C:\ROOst\system\ucc server RO-Basovka.rom?deathmessagemode=3?FriendlyFireScale=1 ?FFPunishment=1?PreStartTime=45?RoundLimit=3?WinLi mit=2?TimeLimit=0?FFKillLimit=5?FFDamageLimit=300? VACSecure=true?game=ROEngine.ROTeamGame?MinPlayers =0? -log=ServerLog.log
    echo %GameText%
    echo.
    echo This is the %GameText% Auto Runner
    echo To Restart the server close the corresponding Game
    echo To Shut down the server close this window.
    echo.
    set LogFile="%homepath%\Desktop\Logs\%GameText%.log"
    echo Output is logged to %LogFile%
    echo.
    echo This is the command line: >>%LogFile%
    echo %GameCmd% >>%LogFile%
    :start
    echo ReStarting %GameText%
    date/t
    time/t
    echo ReStarting %GameText% >>%LogFile%
    date/t >>%LogFile%
    time/t >>%LogFile%
    call %GameCmd%
    goto start


    I hope this will help out those having problems with the odd random crash?

    Hi BC,

    Couple of questions m8, thanks for this I have been using your bat file for a while now but have a problem with the log file path, I get "System cannot find the path specified" tried manually creating the files for the path, but no joy.

    Also is it like the old CoD bat, starts another game window because mine doesn't if it should.

    @echo off
    title RO Public server
    echo Look at the top of the window.
    echo.
    e:
    cd e:\ROOst
    set GameText===== RO Public server ====

    echo %GameText%
    echo.
    echo This is the %GameText% Auto Runner
    echo To Restart the server close the corresponding Game
    echo To Shut down the server close this window.
    echo.
    set LogFile="%homepath%\Desktop\Logs\%GameText%.log"

      Create a folder on your desktop called Logs....that should be it.
      This will create log files inside telling you when the server was last rebooted.

      Punchy it won't start a second window for RO as RO is already a .bat file.

      You can use this code to auto start any game server as long as you create a .bat file and point the code to the server start up file.
      When you point it to a .exe like the CoD2 mp the bat file will start up first followed by the games consol window.

          Just a not to everyone who may use this as we have discovered with Punchy's installation to use this code YOU MUST ENSURE THAT RO SERVER FILES ARE ON THE SAME DRIVE AS YOUR .BAT FILE WITH THE AUTO START CODE INSIDE IF YOU WISH TO USE THE LOGGING THATS ALSO CODE INCLUDED.

          In Punchy's instance the Logs files will not be recorded because he has the RO server files installed on a different drive to his .bat start up file preventing the lof files being created.
          This is not a problem if you are not bothered about the logging side which simply records when the server was last rebooted.
          Simply remove this side of the code.

            Hi guys, this auto restart code is very helpful.

            Just one thing I've noticed though, is that upon restart it overwrites the main server log in the system folder, so you can't see why it has fallen over. Is there a way of making it add to this file or back it up or am I missing something simple?

              Hi,

              check out this program which is free service guard software. It allows you to ensure your server is running when windows is started even if you have not logged in. Servers are also restarted on crash.

              regards,
              Denon

                    Are you certain you have the correct path to the game folder?

                      D:\Server\kfs1\System\KF_Server_Launcher.bat


                      is where I go to open the bat file that opens the game so if I understand this right the cd should be


                      "cd D:Server\kfs1"


                      and the gamecmd would be


                      "set GameCmd=D:\Server\kfs1\System\ucc server KF-westlondon.rom?" etc.

                        Is your .bat startup file actually within the main game folder?
                        If not put it there and create a shortcut for the server desktop.
                        You can start and edit the .bat file from the shortcut if needed.

                          Just to make sure we are on the same page. All I am doing is editing the .bat that was installed when I installed the server? Or do i delete that one and create some other .bat file?

                          Also yes I changed the directory that the server is installed. which would be D:\KillingFloorServers\kfs1\System\KF_Server_Launc her.bat
