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.

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.

  • Some words from the Developer

    Hello all!

    Some might know me from Dwarfs. Now back again with this new game developed with Tripwire. I'm thinking I should open this thread to answer some questions and talk about the development of the game. : )

    Calamity is in many ways a project built out of my long love for games as they where. When I was a kid (still am in many ways : P ) I loved to play games with my brother and my friends, I think many of you here are the same. I will never forget the long battles of Heroes hot-seat or a my first console games playing until my parents turned of the power to the console. It's an era of games that I think in many ways is hard to find nowadays in the pile of Gears of Wars and Call of something or other. Don't get me wrong I love those games as well but I miss the not split screen co-op of the old days.

    There where something special playing next to each other in the sofa or in front of the PC. Even if I love online play, to be able to do one screen co-op and working within the Killing Floor brand has been a blast.

    I really like the concept of just sitting down picking up a controller with your friends and picking up some beer and pizza and then hammering each other trying to beat the different difficulties. The Ouya gave a chance for independent developers to use the same idea as Steam but now for the TV.
    It's not perfect but it is a lot of fun. : )

    This is not the be all end all Killing Floor, and as Tripwire called us in I'm sure their release plans and schedule is not hurt by our little venture into what a couch retro experience with Killing Floor could be. The reactions that we got from when we let players try the game on PAX, most who were hardcore fans of the franchise and had over 2000 h played, loved it and told us they now wanted to get an Ouya.

    Personally I think there is room for some good old couch gaming in a world of AAA and big shooters but that's just me : ). So now if you guys have any questions, ask away and I will try to answer them as well as I can.

    Boom! You just listed the exact reasons why I like the OUYA.
    Overall I was impressed with what I've played so far with the game. Do you think you may develop some additional content? Nothing crazy like KF has, but the odd extra level. Levels loaded from a USB stick would be cool.

          This is a question for tripwire to answer. : ) But I can say I think it would be cool : P

            Hey Robin,

            thank you and your team for all the hard work you put into the game.

            Could you (or someone else who owns the game) post a short Let's play video, so everyone who doesn't have an OUYA gets a better look at the game?

            Or did anyone spot a review yet?

              Yes I've been thinking of putting this up. I might do it later today or tomorrow.

                  This is one thing that is changed it this version of killing floor. You can only select perk in the beginning of the game.

                    Okay, well I have 3 questions.

                    1) Is there going to future patch/updates , such as bug fixes, added content, or maybe the modifiers from the original (i.e. nothing but Clots the entire match) or stuff like that ?

                    2) Do you have any plans for a potential console release ? I know there's stuff going around that it may be going to PC and stuff, which is cool and all, but since it's built with a controller in mind ( OUYA ) , I personally think that it would be better to be released on consoles, especially with Sony and Microsoft's push to support indies, and give you the power/ability to upgrade graphics, add 4 player co-op and online

                    3) .... Why the freak did you make Hard and Hell SO HARD ?! I've finished all of Beginnner, Normal, have a level 20 Commando and 16 Berserker, and can't pass wave 3 because Husks one shot me if I don't have armor, enemies move insanely fast, and are all bullet sponges. I understand it's meant to be hard, but I don't know if i'll be able to solo Hard , let alone Hell. Friends aren't over enough to sit down and do that :/

                    Anyways, besides the difficulty thing, I think the game is phenomenal and definitely worth the $15. It's a blast to play with many, many hours of replayability. (btw, the leafblower is a terrible, but hilarious, gun lol)


                    • #11
                      Thanks for a great game, love it. I can only echo the thoughts above...perfect fit for Ouya. Especially thankful for the hidden four player mode. I do agree that the step up to hard/he'll is a bit rough, but maybe we'll get through it someday


                      • #12
                        1, and 2, is up to trip to answer : ). But we have made to small updates for it so far. 3, We wanted players to have something to strive for and work with for a long time not finish to fast or easy we think this will give gamer who love the game even more satisfaction when they beet it. It's what a true achievement
                        in a game looks like : )

                              a question to robin

                              Robin i have one question that needs to be answered.

                              why does patys round not play the abandon all theme?
