Upcoming Forum Overhaul

We are starting the work to switch our forums, which have been based on a version of the Vbulletin forum software since their inception with the Red Orchestra mod (then VB 3 and currently VB 5.1) to an all new forum software called Xenforo. After researching it, we feel Xenforo is a better choice for the future as it has a vibrant modding and addon community that will allow us to extend the functions of these forums in ways players will enjoy.

As part of this, at some point in the near future these forums will be locked down so we cant merge over all of the existing content into the new forum database. It will likely then be a few more days as we work on the new forum and correct any issues from the merge.

Global Rules

  • 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.

  • 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!

Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
[COLOR=darkred]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.

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.

    Agreed, TWI wants to cater to the console players so they can play on the same servers as the PC gamers. With that kind of logic, what's the point of even playing KF2 on PC? I thought the point of playing on an expensive elaborate PC was to have lots of options in how the game is played. If TWI doesn't reconsider screwing us PC players then I am going to cancel my server subscription and probably won't play KF2 ever again. Such a dick move on TWI"s behalf. Makes them Hypocrites as well due to the fact that KF1 started off as a mod on UE2. This is beyond unacceptable.
    Correction, you are better off going back to KF1, where there is still a modding community of sorts.

      That's is true, but I wanted to put my DO$H towards KF2 not KF1. If I wanted to spend time modding and paying for a server for KF1 I would already have done so.

        Anyone remember that issue? Well it's back, and this time it's much worse, Tripwire replaced KFPlayerController.AddPlayerXP with KFGameInfo.AddPlayerXP:
        native private function AddPlayerXP(KFPlayerController PC, INT XP, class<KFPerk> PerkClass);
        So guess what that means, once new KF2 update goes live, this is it, I'm done with this mod (and several others too as matter of fact).

        It seams one does not simply learn from past mistakes.
        They did this again?

        If you're reading this Tripwire, may I suggest something?
        • Put a new function in KFGameInfo:
          native function SetUsesCustomXP(bool bEnabled);
          This needs to be publicly callable.
        • Put a new overridable hook in KFPlayerController:
          event AddCustomXP(int XP, class<KFPerk> PerkClass) {}
          This hook is called from KFGameInfo.AddPlayerXP() only if KFGameInfo.SetUsesCustomXP(true) was called.
        • Comment both the new function and hook to get in contact with Marco if these ever need to be modified.

        I don't have the beta (and thus don't have the code in front of me) but I think this would be a suitable compromise.
        There are two types of people: those who classify people into two types and those who don't.

          Well guess what, if one DOES want to mod their stats, they can do it with UDK (or any other app) by switching its appID to KF2 and use the built-in steam stats functions.

          So only thing they gain by making things overly complicated is that they'll lose their mods and modders.
          Could you send me a message describing in detail what your mod needs. We made a guess and added a notification, 'OnPlayerXPAdded' specifically for modding. If this does not accomplish what you need than we need more information.

              Yeah, that'll do for now. I updated ServerExt to run in latest KF2 version and added a dummy base for Sharpshooter perk (has no traits yet though).

              • Can you update this mod?

                Could you update this mod to make it work with the new update of killing floor 2?


                • He just posted that he did.

                  I cannot test this ATM since Skillz has not updated his ServerEXT. So siked to play the Sharpshooter class!

                    I've tested both the download from here and the workshop sub. The server loads correctly but the client crashes every time.

                    Steps taken:

                    -Deleted cache on both server+client.
                    -Removed serverext files from server (except .ini files)

                    ~With Workshop
                    Added workshop ID to the .ini. server loads fine. Client downloads files then crashes.

                    ~Using the download
                    Added serverext files (except .ini's) to the brewed folder. Server loads fine. Client downloads files then crashes.


                    • My dedicated server is bugsplating on Boss wave with new ServerExt for version 1035.


                      • Oh good news thanks for update

                              • Courage to troubleshoot the update

                                Marco, we are many players who follow your fun mod and we hope soon to solve the problem. I ask Tripwire collaborate with the KF2 mod.
                                Thanks for everything and the owners of the servers also
