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.

Setup Reserve Slots Tutorial (Windows/Linux)

  • Setup Reserve Slots Tutorial (Windows/Linux)

    Heres the situation...
    A nice program called ServerExt does work with RO and gives you the abbility to have reserve slots.

    It does have some minor issues, so i suggest not using "ExpandPlayerLimit". This forces a +1 to the max player limit, but once someone leaves it doesn't take it away. Meaning, your server has 32 slots, a reserve jumps in, the server changes to 33 slots. When someone leaves, the server doesn't move back down to 32. I suggest using the Kick Method.

    There might be other problems. Reason is, ServerExt was built for UE2.0, RO is UE2.5, there are some capability issues.


    USE AT OWN RISK!!

    SETUP

    (Windows)
    1. Close server
    2. Download ServerExt
    3. Extract to <RO_Server_Dir>


    (Linux)
    [url]
    1. Close Server
    2. Download ServerExt
    3. Extract to <RO_Server_Dir> Useing lowercase
    Code:
    unzip -L ServerExt-v110.zip
    -L = extracts in lowercase

    OR

    3. Extract to safe location
    4. Convert all DIRs and sub-DIRs to lowercase
    5. copy contents to <RO_Server_Dir> or manually move each file to proper location.


    **RO install has all lowercase values because of HLDS converts everything to lowercase. ServerExt has upper case DIR's, since its the standart for UE games.

    Installation

    If you are using the single admin system you will have to change the following setting in RedOrchestra.ini:
    Code:
    [Engine.GameInfo]
    AccessControlClass=ServerExt.ReservedSlots
    If you are using the multiple admin system (xAdmin) you will have to change it to in RedOrchestra.ini:
    Code:
    [Engine.GameInfo]
    AccessControlClass=ServerExt.ReservedSlotsIni

    Start Server

    Configuration

    The reserved slots can be configured via the WebAdmin. A new page is added to the main list, this page allows you to edit the reserved slots. The other settings might be available via the "defaults" page.

    Add users in ReserveSlots section on top.
    CDKeyHash=Global ID seen in Current>Players List

    I would suggest using Kick Newest Player, for reason I stated in my intro.

    Everything else is pretty self explanatory

    You can also change settings in RedOrchestra.ini
    should be the last section.

    ***EDIT

    if all global ids are the same, you need to update to one of the beta server releases. look through the forums. reading is good for you

    Hi Paulski,

    Everything seems to be working ok so far. One question please?

    If I set it to kick last player in, how do I stop my Clanmembers from being subjected to the kick?

    Thanks.

          Hmmm the cdhash key seem to have been replaced with a gobal id and for some reason everyone on our server has the same id

          Comment

            First, thanks for putting this together Paulski. The server is setup with a password and to kick the newest player.

            I gotta couple of questions:

            1. The "Reserved Slots" located under the "Defaults" option has absolute max players. I assume this is referring to the max number of private slots?

            This statement kinda confuses me:
            This is the absolute maximum limit for players, the player count will never increase more than this value. If this value is zero or less there won't be a limit
            2. Is there a way to add the password to a shortcut so players don't have to enter it everytime they go to play on a full server?

            Would this work:
            Right-click Red Orchestra in Steam and select properties->Under the General tab select Launch options->add ?password=[somepassword]

            Maybe editing the server favorite's IP?

            *Edit*
            I see it added a Team Balancer mutator. Anyone know if it works?

                Maximum number the server will raise to, example 35/32 players.

                2. Is there a way to add the password to a shortcut so players don't have to enter it everytime they go to play on a full server?

                possibly havn't tried it

                this isn't the greatest team balancer but it might, it worked a funny way in the mod.

                  Thanks for the contribution, Paulski.

                  I do have a problem that I'm still struggling with. I have the whole thing installed and working. I'm actually kicking the player that has been playing the LONGEST because I want to allow people to get in and spend some time playing with us before being booted by a reserved slot holder.

                  My problem lies in the fact that I am not using the web admin to add/remove the reserved slot members. I wrote a PHP script that queries my vBulletin database and automatically pulls out a field from the database for particular groups and then builds a custom UserSlots.ini file. I have modified my UCC startup script to use this UserSlots.ini file for all the user information.

                  I have another script that runs on the ROOST server that goes out and grabs this file every 10 minutes. So the UserSlots.ini file is constantly updated. All of this works great.

                  The problem is that UT seems to cache the UserSlots.ini file when it starts up. So the only way for me to get the engine to see that the UserSlots.ini file has changed is to completely shut down and restart the server. I had expected that it might require a map change to reload the .ini files, but this isn't the case.

                  Is there any way that you, or anyone else, can think of to force the ROOST server to reload these files on map change? I could also deal with a UCC Commandlet that would force this.

                    i dont know the way. Yes the server keeps cached files. and restores them after map restart.

                    webadmin has the abbility to update files so there should be a way somehow.

                      It doesn't seem to be reloading the ServerExt reserved slot .ini file after a map restart though. That's what's bugging me. I have the whole system working including the automatic updates of reserved slots, I just have to shut down the server and start it back up again to make it reload.

                      I do appreciate the help you've given though! Thank you.

                        I apologize in advance, as I know some of you will think this is a totally NOOB question...and it probably is. Sorry.

                        When installing ServerEXT, you state above to extract it into the <RO_Server_Dir>

                        When I ftp into my server, I have file structure as...

                        clientnumber/ror/all other folders

                        Where all other folders is the system folder, and all the other folders.

                        Do I extract the ServerEXT stuff into the the same place as all the other files or into some other location.

                        Again..I apologize for the dumb questions, but I'm fairly new to admining and configuring stuff with the UT engine.

                        Thanks in advance. And go easy on me.... lol

                              Well, this noob is getting there. I have the ServerExt installed and running. So far, so good. Thanks for the help.

                              Now...more questions...sorry...

                              Can someone explain how I now set up the reserved slots? I want to configure it so anyone in our clan can log into a reserved slot.

                              Do I need to make a reserved slot for each member, or do I make a reserved slot based on the info I want to allow them to sign in with and it will then work for everyone who meets that criteria.

                              In my web admin, I see these fields...

                              Data - Not sure what goes here?

                              Type - Has 4 options to choose from
