Forum Rules

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

Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • 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
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.

  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • 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.

    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.

    4. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    5. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.

  • 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!

  • DO NOT Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or graphic files, or other materials ("Content") that is unlawful (including illegal drug usage), harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful or racially, ethnically, sexually or otherwise objectionable. This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet. This also means you may NOT publically share private communications (PM, email or anything else) without the original poster's permission.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any Content that contains a virus, Trojan horse or other mischievous Content.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.
  • DO NOT link to posts on any other forums, or any other form of media, that breaches our rules. It will be treated just the same as if you had posted it here.
  • DO NOT Double Post, cross Post, "necro post" or restart closed threads.

  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.

  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. 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.

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.

  • Dev Chat Log

    Reposting here because I had some trouble finding it, and it was agonizing to read it on the Steam forums in code format. Props to Nethlem over at the Steam forums for putting it up originally.

    [TW]RammJaeger: Welcome to the TWI Killing Floor dev chat

    [TW]RammJaeger: If you have questions, PM them to Yoshiro

    [TW]RammJaeger: And then we'll be answering select questions

    [TW]RammJaeger: Ok first off

    [TW]RammJaeger: I'm going to answer the "German" question

    [TW]RammJaeger: Which will be the same answer from teh forums

    [TW]RammJaeger: The question is
    [TW]RammJaeger: Will the game be cut in German

    [TW]RammJaeger: The answer is, we are still finalizing that with the USK

    [TW]RammJaeger: So we don't know if it will be cut, or how much it will be cut

    [TW]RammJaeger: We'll do just like we did with REd Orchestra

    [TW]RammJaeger: Which is make it as gory as possible, without getting banned in Germany

    [TW]Yoshiro: Ok first question

    [TW]Yoshiro: [dS] SuRvIVoR: question 2. why wasn't there more gameplay footage in the trailer? and why couldn't we see the HUD.

    [TW]RammJaeger: Let me add something to that. The second half of the trailer is gameplay And we hope to do something more with gameplay before the release.

    [SIZE=3][TW]Yoshiro: pwn3ge.

            ***Part 2, Unmoderated Dev Chat. Prepare for many FAQs and spelling errors!***

   - new interview!

            [TW]RammJaeger: So who here has pre-ordered?

            [TW]Xienen: It happens guys...thanks for coming

            [TW] Sanzliot: Thanks Guys!

            T-VIPER: question does the co op play also a campaign from which you go from start to end or is it just survival to see who can live the longest

            [TW]RammJaeger: The coop play isn't a story campaign, its individual open levels that you fight through waves. But it isn't like L4D survival, every level has an ending.

            Zeiva: Wonder if fleshpounds will do damage to eachother when the get raged, like in the trailer vid

            [TW]RammJaeger: We confirmed earlier, the FP does hurt other bad guys when he rage charges

            Maverick: BTW, the SDK is gonna be similiar to that of RO? Cause then I'd check it, I've been working in Source SDK for ages and probably my friends will make me map for KF

            [TW]RammJaeger: Yes the SDK will be Unreal based just like RO

            [Furry] Dvsilverwing (FFF) BACK: How will the graphics compare to that of L4D?

            [TW]RammJaeger: The graphics aren't as next gen as L4D, but things look nice. For us gameplay is the key.

            Eversmann: Ramm is it a modified Unreal 2.5 engine you are using?

            [TW]RammJaeger: Yes, modified UE2,5

            inFurnace: ut2k4 didn't look like cs1.6 heh

            [TW]RammJaeger: The mod looked light years beyond CS 1.6

            [TW]RammJaeger: But the retail is light years past the mod.

            [Furry] Dvsilverwing (FFF) BACK:
            Will all the weapons have Ironsights, or just the bullpup/rifle/crossbow like in the mod?

            [TW]RammJaeger: All weapons with sights have iron sights, not like the mod

            MoKlakins: what special events will you hold through finer undead things

            All weapons have IS - well, where it makes sense

            : yeah, we wanted to make it run on a wide variet of machines

            [TW] Sanzliot: Moklakins, i'm going to be busy until the release, after that Finer Undead Things should get a lot of activity along with the Official Killing FLoor Game Group

            Not even I need iron sights on an axe

            Reaper177: Ramm, roughly how many sales do you think you've made so far?

            [TW]RammJaeger: Reaper177: Ramm, roughly how many sales do you think you've made so far? <- I know exactly how many sales we have

            [TW]RammJaeger: And its a lot

            [TW]RammJaeger: You've watched the Steam best sellers list

            [TW]RammJaeger: We've been number two for a week

            [TW]RammJaeger: We won't say exactly how many

            [TW]RammJaeger: But we've been outselling even AAA games that were recently released on steam

            T-VIPER: question is the siren a bit like the witch and boomer from L4D were is you distured her she starts screaming and basicly call in zombie reanforcements

            [TW]RammJaeger: The Siren is nothing like the witch

            GoV78: how many shotguns are in the game?

            [TW]RammJaeger: 2

            †Digital Spooker†
            : I heard the siren, causes grenades to explode, does that mean that a grenade could potentially explode and kill everyone?

            [TW]RammJaeger: The siren now disintegrates grenades

            [TW]RammJaeger: Because it wasn't fun to have them blow up in your face

            Adician: Disentegrates or destroys?

            [TW]RammJaeger: Disintegrates

            [TW]RammJaeger: It used to destroy them

            [Furry] Dvsilverwing (FFF) BACK: Will Zedtime effect everyone? Or just the one person? It would be a bit annoying to have someone with a Winchester be getting tons of ZEDtime shots while I'm in a tight situation with a horde of zombies and only a 9mm.

            Str8 Internet Gangsta: can you answer one question quick, i want to know if the accounts will be protected from hacking to max out all your perks so cheaters don't just run in the game and own everything

            [TW]RammJaeger: Zedtime question was already answered

            [TW]RammJaeger: Accounts should be as secure as other steam games using Steamworks

            BrainMeat: How big are the map ??

              ***PART 3***

              : If Killing Floor sells well, are there plans to remake 1.0's Singleplayer?

              [TW]Yoshiro: Stale, future content really isn't ready to be talked about

              TW]Xienen: the bullpup has Single Fire and Full Auto mode

              [TW]Yoshiro: but I wouldn't say anything is off the table

              [TW]Xienen: which is the P90, i believe

              Krunjey: will the server browser be like the CS one or the UT2k4 one?

              [TW]Xienen: The bullpup is much stronger than the dual pistols =)

              GoV78: whats the hardest weapon to master?

              [TW]Xienen: Krunjey, it will be like the UT2K4 one, but it will be tied into the Steam system

              [TW]Yoshiro: the browser is modeled after the 2k4 one krunjey but it has steam code

              [TW]Yoshiro: running behind it

              [TW]Yoshiro: you can also use the steam server browser

              Dink: Will the Charaters Speak? Will they have unrealistic british voices, like in BF2 SF. Hope not as it is anoing as we dont speak like that.

              darkreaver1980: whats the most dangerous ZED after Patriarch? Flesh Pounder?

              Stale_{M.E.A.T.}: Has the Team killing grenade bug been fixed?

              [TW]Xienen: Krunjey, you only get Perks for playing in normal games, not Custom

              [TW]Yoshiro: Fleshpound isn't a happy ZED

              [TW]Xienen: Stale_, if friendly fire is off, then the grenade does not harm your teammates

              [TW]Yoshiro: RO is for you

              [TW]Yoshiro: if not, then probably no

              [TW]Yoshiro: most are what I'd call Mediumish

              [-TL-] Commissar Cold: So. I have a quick question. With the SDK being released with (Or shortly after) the release of KF. What limitations will there be for mods in-game? I assume you want to have the game to keep the same feeling in most servers.

              Eversmann: Alright.Is there only indoor maps?Like secret lab or something/

              [TW]Yoshiro: only limitations are changes to the game engine commissar

              [TW]Yoshiro: most of the game itself is coded in uscript

              [TW]Yoshiro: same as a mod

              [KFV] ViSK: Guyz how the stalker does look ? do we have a screenshot !?!?!?

              Krunjey: can we use keywords to include/exclude certain servers?

              [TW]Yoshiro: Depends on some of your settings Brain

              Eversmann: Let me rephrase:Is there also a map that is indor only or are all maps like a mix?

              [TW]Yoshiro: you can drop a million of em on there

              GoV78: Will there be any Gameplay videos released soon?

              Stale_{M.E.A.T.}: stalker=invisible..naked female

              [HuB] flappydoo: .................................................. many enemies will there be at once

              [TW]Yoshiro: but it will kill your computer

              Dargun: the game is still going to have naked invisible zombie chicks?

              Rattrap: this game runs fine with geforce 5200 with 128 mb?

              [TW]Yoshiro: like game trailers

              [TW]Yoshiro: rat, thats a tad low end, but if you turn some settings down I think yes

              [TW]Yoshiro: double check the reqs

              [TW]Xienen: Rattrap, a 5200 might be a little low, but it will be able to play the game at its lowest settings, more than likely

              [TW]Yoshiro: on the steam store paage

              Fortune: I completely forgot the editor is built into the game, so we'll have access to it straight away, but with the whole server browser set up you guys have, when we join a custom map, will it download automatically?

              [TW]Xienen: Fortune, it will attempt to download the map and any other packages that are needed

              Barcode711: speaking of mods,will you be able to use your own soundtracks for the atmospheric music? and how does that work - one of random songs in a playlist looped until the current event (either calmness or fighting) is over?

                Thank you for all the hard work man!
                Im sure it must have been a pain to sort that out.

                  thanks for posting the log Nenjin!

                  and big thanks to TWI for doing such a dev chat, even though it seemed to become a complete disaster in the beginning

                    thanks for the post and formatting it so it was readable!

                      Ha the devs are deep into to the new tech! (textures are now called materials in UE 3.0)

                          In the chat it's mentioned they disintegrate grenades instead of destroying them. I took that to mean grenades just go "poof" when she screams now, instead of detonating on your belt, in your hand, or in mid air?
