Forum Rules

  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.

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.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.

General Behaviour

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.

  • Full Locamotion Please.

    After playing Onward VR , I have come to realize that this game MUST have full locomotion ! It is so much fun running around in Onward, I always imagine what it would be like to kill hoards of zeds when I play. Onward has the largest active player base in a VR game right now, if you check steam it is the most played VR game out there and it has zero options for teleporting. Killing floor Incursion needs to incorporate full locomotion and onward is a good example why. If you can find a way to incorporate full locomotion to be playable with the teleporting crowd that works as well but please make sure you have the option for full.

    I cannot wait for this game now, i hope you consider releasing it as an early access soon!!! I'm sure if this game plays similar to KF2 but in VR you will have a hit!

    PS. please consider a beta test and if so , shoot me a msg ( guys gotta try)

    *My old account with incorrect name was not deleted. This is my account.

    Anyways. Oculus forums has a petition Requesting to make this ( and a few other games) full locomotion.( 80 replies so far)

    Arizona sunshine had a lot of people complaining there was no way to move other than teleport. Once they added full locomotion the reviews went up. This game is my number one hyped game for VR but if the only way to move is teleport I will be incredibly disappointed.

    when Robo recall came out it took less then 10 hours for a full locomotion mod to come out and that thread has 221 replies and counting of people exited and wishing it was officially in the game.

    **** Ps. Paranormal activity just came out and people blew up over the fact that there locomotion was coupled to the HMD. IF you do full locomotion and want to avoid a **** storm don't couple the movment to where the player is looking like in a flat monitor style game). Make the movement independent of the head. ONWARD uses where the controller is facing and that works 10x better than where the hmd is facing (although it's still not perfect)

      Agreed, I came here to say the EXACT same thing. Onward really set the standard when it comes to movement in VR. Any game that takes the teleportation route really is taking a huge leap backwards. You can make teleportation an option for those who are prone to motion sickness, perhaps, but Onward-style locomotion NEEDS to be available. Locomotion could easily be the factor that makes or breaks the game for many players, myself included.

      Please don't stick with teleportation. It just wouldn't be Killing Floor without locomotion.

        If it's moddable then I will add it if it's not there like I did robo recall.
        Come my subjects the time is near .......

          o god I hope it would be more like Serious Sam vr and not onward. the locomotion options in Serious Sam vr should be the standard for every game

            There is an experimental free movement mode shipping with the game. It works well for those that don't get motion sick by free movement in VR. Teleporting is used as a gameplay mechanic though, so there will be places that you will use teleporting along side free movement if you use that mode.

              I guess damage is done and it was designed to be a concrete foot shooter where you hit waves of zombies until they are dead. I bought Arizona late after they got their wasd but I could not imagine how frustrating and unimmersive that would be to run with teleport. Serious Sam is a great example they have the old games converted and it works brilliant. Then they have fusion designed for VR where you can´t move in a serious known for it´s pace??? Just wow in wrong thinking. But so many developers seem to think you can´t move in VR due to motion sickness symptoms just because your regular body don´t move. But we have a brain and it can adapt and with time understand what is happening besides the possibility to have aids like shrinking fov and slide teleport.

              That said I managed to have fone with some concrete foot shooters like robo recall and superhot VR. Though these are good on having you keep on your toes and move around a little anyway. Superhot is about minimal movements though so it´s a special case but Robo Recall should be more fun be able to move around

              My idea is that those that have incurable motion sickness won´t be running VR for long so why should games be primarly designed for guys that always will hate VR?

              I hate to speculate though will there be a demo

                Can you describe what the locomotion is like ? I am HOPING it is not attached to the HMD. Having movement direction attached to HMD is is one of the reason devs think free locomotion causes sickness because that method is quite disorienting. In a game like killing floor I'm sure the players will be looking around A LOT it would be a shame if you were being jerked around every time you looked in a different direction.

                edit: also I wanted to say thanks for listening to the vr community.

                  Yes! please add Full locomotion!

                    There is a locomotion option (which still has a fall back for teleportation as it is needed in a few locations during the game).
