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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

Package Version Mismatch (On some maps only)

  • Package Version Mismatch (On some maps only)

    So, I flashed my PC and reinstalled Windows, I then set up the server again. Luckily, I kept my modified .ini filies that follow every single thing the TWI Wiki says (before this reinstallation, I had absolutely 0 problem with my server, ZERO). However now, my server refuses to load several customs maps (most namely Dive to the Heart, Beach Invasion, et cetera). I have no idea why...

    I've:
    - Double, triple and quadruple checked the PCServer-KFEngine. [OnlineSubsystemSteamworks.KFWorkshopSteamworks] is there, and all of my maps are being perfectly downloaded and subbed to the server (there are no errors in the Steam CMD saying that a map had an issue or something). I also made sure that the IpDrv has the Steam Workshop as a Download Manager.
    - Deleted the KFGAME cache folder in the server, then learned the hard way that this does nothing at all... So....
    - Binaries\Win64\steamapps\workshop\content was completely erased, same thing with appworkshop_232090.acf, then closed Steam since the CMD is bugged and won't update/download maps when Steam is online. Redownloaded every single map...
    - Still won't let me download some servers. Checked PCServer - KFGame, and made sure EVERY SINGLE MAP from the cache folder shared the same name with the maps I added to the cycle and the ones in my Web Admin.
    - Lastly, I erased my local "My Documents" KF Cache folder to no avail. Not even my friend can join, and we both have that map.

    I am starting to lose my patience, what the heck can I do? I have absolutely no idea how to work around this issue anymore. Nothing I do seems to work, and it makes no sense whatsoever that some maps work, while others don't.

        What log file? It's just 10 or so exact maps that produce this particular error with no reason whatsoever. Dive_To_The_Heart, NewArcadeShopping, NachUndertoten and Rooftop (to name a few) are some of the problematic ones, which is a pretty small number coming from a 120 map server. Still, none of the other threads I've read so far require a log file.

          The launch.log in KFGame\Logs. There could be a workshop error or something else that provides some insight as to the cause of the problem. Most folks post them to pastebin or something similar for review.

            As you requested, here you go.

            https://pastebin.com/SZyxsaap

            I waited for the CMD to do one full check for every single Workshop thing it has to download, even the ones that don't work.

              I don't see any errors with the maps, e.g. RoofTop. Did this include trying to load one of the maps that gives you a version mismatch? Also, have you checked to see if the map files are the same in both locations? E.g. \kf2server\Binaries\Win64\steamapps\workshop\conte nt\ and \kf2server\KFGame\Cache ? For the ones you're having issues with.

                Yeah! Erased EVERYTHING. Made another server from scratch and copy-pasted the KF-Engine options to load stuff from the Workshop, then added the same Workshop items and I only have issues with said particular maps, which is why I am so flabbergasted at this error! Dive_To_The_Heart used to work FLAWLESSLY. I even tried that Steam Workshop .dll fix I read in the other thread, but that didn't help at all.

                It is extremely weird that 90% of the maps work, but those maps don't and they still have Workshop pages, so they haven't been taken down. Trying to access them while having the map subscribed on my client works, but I don't want that, or else those who don't have the map won't be able to play with me.

                As I said in the OP, I also erased EVERY single thing from the cache, the .vdf files, EVERYTHING to try and download everything again, but those are the only maps giving me said error.

                  Give the ID of non working maps.

                    Since it's such a few amount, check the two locations to see if the permissions are the same compared to the working maps on the directories. The Drive map has a workshop ID of 770316991. It'd be nice to see what the log looks like when launching that map if possible. I'm running a few of the maps you're having issues with so it shouldn't be a workshop issue.

                      I don't understand how on a fresh server this issue could arise, it is like, not possible. Server downloads from workshop, client downloads same file from workshop.

                      Another issue could be the workshop download is not properly configured, and the main download manager is the HTTP download, and it download an outdated file from a redirect server, leading in a miss match in the end. (edit: and to confirm that, check your client log file, and your cache folder to find the last modified file and see their name and location, workshop items will have subfolders, http downloads will be directly in Cache folder with weird name)

                      Do you use workshop only, and/or did you remove the HTTP download manager if not in use (or place it AFTER the workshop download manager if you use both?)

                      I can try your workshop map if you list them, but I'm pretty sure it will work properly and your issue is more a misconfiguration on your side.

                      edit: Something else could be an issue in your local (and your friends) Steam installation, an issue with the cached workshop items, because like the server, did you know you have two copies of workshop files? There's also a cache in Steam folder Steam/steamapps/workshop/content that will be copied over if you delete My Games/Killing Floor 2/Cache so maybe make sure to clean it too as it will copy the problematic files again if you simply delete the files from my games.

                      edit2: also it is well known that running dedicated server + Steam + the game on same machine is going to create issues, especially if you add workshop on top of that (and this is true for MANY games out there).

                        As requested, log when I load Dive_To_The_Heart. I loaded a couple of maps first (16-Stacks erroneously as an Objective map due to a misclick).

                        And yes, they have the same permissions.

                        The redirect is simply not possible because I have no idea how to run that, and I've always downloaded directly from the Workshop. Well, the other maps download just great from the Workshop with no problems.

                        The download section of KF-Engine.

                        https://pastebin.com/VPtBc57J

                        I did all of that in the OP.

                        I ran the SteamCMD server without Steam or the game on to make sure everything downloaded and updated appropriately.

                          What I meant is maybe your Steam client and game cause an issue with workshop globally because of everything running on the same machine. In a perfect world it shouldn't.

                          From what I see the HTTP download manager is in the correct position in the file.
                          If you didn't add the redirect server address manually in your KFEngine.ini then server has no default redirect server configured.

                          Can you give the IDs of problematic maps only or give the direct workshop links? I'm not adding that much items on my server sorry, just the problematic ones would do fine.

                          Also can you give your server info if it is not private to try to join it and see what happens for me?

                            I agree with you that here. I have more than enough machine to run both the Server, Steam and the game, but the Server tends to eat my RAM rather quickly.

                            Server info... sure!

                            "open 192.168.1.11"

                            Just search for the maps in the list, type "suicide" so you can search for them faster.

                            The server is usually on most of the day (except for when I am sleeping).
