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.

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.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention either in the title or the body of the post.
  • 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.
  • To make the highlighted bits above 100% clear to everyone, the following WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.
    2. Name Shaming and Public "Witch Hunts" are also not allowed.
    3. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    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.[/COLOR]
  • 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 Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, rule or regulation.
  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.
  • DO NOT complain about being banned from a server and DO NOT complain about other players on servers - that is between you and the admin, no need to get the community involved.

Username, Avatar and Signature Rules
  • Multiple registrations result in a ban.
  • No offensive user names
  • Avatars:
    Avatars are disabled.
  • All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, you can have both text and images
  • - For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 100 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • - 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
[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.

  • Phoenix (By a Gamer, for Gamers)

    These are my personal servers that I run, all are welcome, click on the banner for more info. They are currently not attached to any Clan/Community/Squad for the being and it doesn't seem like its worth the time and effort into making such. Rather enjoy the game for what it is, not a clan that runs behind it. Maps and Difficulties are played by majority vote instead of remaining on one, no need to go through and find somewhere to get your fix, Phoenix will 'take care' of you...with peace of mind of long, hard, bloody gaming.

    With that being said, loving a majority of the community of KF, if someone would like for me to host a map for testing (Possible White-list, NEW STUFF, etc), feel free to contact me, I'll see about if I can assist you. If you are a Modding developer/maker and see your content or files on my servers and would like to contribute with betas, additions or updates, please reach out to me, I'd love to host it!

    I also like to game often in my free time, feel free to add me for rounds.

    Some infos:

    I'm a Team Player.
    I don't forgive nor forget, too much. XD
    All Perks Level 6. Will assist to level up others.
    I own all the DLCs.
    I play for the game and fun first. Friends, second. Teams, community, all that BS, third.
    Is a Grunt.
    Is secretly a TWI enthusiast.
    Wishes to eat Yoshiro's cake.

    From Phoenix Killing Floor

    Doing achievements of EPIC proportions!

    To playing by one's self!

    To playing with friends!

    To playing with others!

    *Optional Game Files*:
    This is currently in the works, looking for a reliable host...
    ^These are files that you cannot download from the High-Speed Redirect due to either a limitation in the outdated Unreal Engine, Killing Floor, fail coding, etc, etc. These are files that will enhance the gaming experience, such as custom sound and music files that were packaged along with the map. This can solve a lot of 'empty' maps that seem to have no sounds or music but in reality they do, just need to place in your KillingFloor folder.

    To install, simply unpack everything to the KF Folder under Steam > steamapps> common > KillingFloor

    Maps & Mut List for Phoenix 1 Official Killing Floor Server & Phoenix 2 Original Killing Floor Server

    Please be aware that Maps are subject to change, updated versions of the Maps may be added, older versions may be retained should the update change the original concept, I love original ideas and wish to preserve the original ideas of the Map Developers and Makers, where prior to the White-list was not possible. Muts will be updated as the developer pushes out a new version. Finally, some maps may become unavailable during certain events or seasons, such as no Christmas/Snow maps on Halloween Events, CE/NE editions unavailable outside of the holiday, etc, etc...

    Any suggestions, feedback, is appreciated. Thanks a lot to all of the Developers and Makers of the Maps and Muts, I appreciate the content you've given! Smashing job done! Come join the asylum, all are welcome!

        ? What do you mean? I really just stocked it up with white-listed maps that would make it easier for others to get the Posh Achievement without actually having to use a work-around. (Plus it would encourage Co-Op and teamwork.)

        As for the Maps themselves...Idk, its all voting, although since its a Beginner Server, I set it so the squad's MVPs will be able to pick the maps they want, it'll encourage some competition, hopefully without killing the cooperation.


        • #5
          Beginner has been updated to Easy, only people new to FPS would need Beginner difficulty.

          The Normal one has been updated so now Difficulty will be voted on. It can be either normal, Hard, Suicidal, or Hell on Earth. Join for the fun!

          Also, next week should there be enough funds, a third server may open. NEED FEEDBACK PLZ. -> er


          • #6

                Thanks! Hope you're having fun XD Come back and play sometime!

                As soon as I can get the UK server up, I'll haul my butt to turn it completely Mission maps..its just sucks that because of its Redirect, I have to compress files in order to have them on the server, unlike my White listed one, which compress automatically...yeah. XD

                I'll get my lazy butt working on it, thanks!

                Update: UK server coming as soon as a transaction settles...bad business with a company, going back to previous one.

                The second server is now Mission Maps, Fel's Choice.

                  Well, the TS Server is NO MOAR! From sitting there being unused, decided to cut it, and shorten my rent.

                  Unfortunately, I'm only saving 3 bucks from that. And the way things are going now, doesn't look like that EU server will be here anytime for the moment being, if anyone would care to help me with the server costs *Trust me, they are not that big, but I'm probably going to end up switching to a longer rent period than per month* even 1-5 bucks helps a lot.

                  For more information and if you wish to help me out, visit here ->

                  As soon as I can secure some resources, I'll set up an EU server for my friends overseas, maintained, updated and of course, Officially Whitelisted. *May add the odd map or two*


                  • #10
                    Both servers have been updated, new maps, Fel's Choice has a few 'surprises'.

                    The EU server thing has been put on hold indefinitely. Lack of dosh. =|


                    • #11

                          Since I can't even get in my OWN server, new server popped up.

                          You know the drill, fully white-listed, all zeds, made with real blood! *I bled on my keyboard, it counts!*

                          Edit: The UGLY bug with the Map Voting has been fixed, was so simple, why didn't I think of it before?!


                          • #14
                            Huge freaking update, lost count of how much stuff is on there.

                            Server's still alive and kicking!

                              I just picked this up joined your server after the first match I couldn't decide what map to vote for
