Forum Rules

CHANGES
  • 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 NOTs
  • 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 post cheats or exploits; THIS INCLUDES ALL/ANY REFERENCES TO HACKING, PIRATED SOFTWARE etc.
  • 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.

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.

    Server IP

    205.234.153.2:7707

    Password = war





    Background Story in text for translation.
    Spoiler!







    Concepts:


    Use Red Orchestra Weapons/Models/Custom Models/Maps

    Enemies:
    • Modified Killing Floor Specimens
    • Red Orchestra Zombies

    Maps:


    Maps should be arranged so that players fight defensively.
    Killing Floor maps can also work.

    Some example RO maps that could work:

    • RO-BaksanValley






    • RO-Danzig


    • RO-FuehrerBunker






    • RO-LyesKrovy

    • RO-Odessa







    Thanks Bswearer & Yomommassis for idea. Also a big thanks to The_Sorrow who is now assisting in making this mod a reality.

    personally i think this is a really bad *** idea

    we need to get everyone on this dev team looking at this and putting in their 2c or we need to start cleaning the team of people who dont do anything

    i already have the basic concept for the nazi zombies, it just needs to be tweaked, and reworked
    but the idea is there

      Slavek, nice one! Yomo, but they will use specimens animations, or do you think, team will be capable to create new animations for nazi zombies?

          1. Import everything from RO
          2. Add nazi zombies (everything is better with nazi zombies!)
          3. Call it KF-1945
          4. ???
          5. Profit!

          No, seriously I'm not crazy about that idea. Smells like another Castle Wolfenstein remake. But nonetheless I can throw some ideas:

          -Regular zombiefied citizens as clots.
          -Small Hitlerjugend boys as stalkers.
          -Big mutated rats instead of crawlers.
          -Undead SS troopers swinging a Mauser Carabine w. bayonet held with one hand as gorefasts.
          -Fat version of Hermann G

            Hmm, Robot Hitler . . . hehe




            I understand not everyone is into this type of game, but I think it would make a good refresher from standard KF, and RO fans might like it as a twist between the two games.

            DA2 has a fun survival game. I personally liked the endless wave system better than a wave based system, it keeps the pressure/tension up and tends to have more immersion when everything is going on.

            An idea for game play:

            • Have a map like Pavlov's House or Danzig, any map where players can set up a good defensive perimeter.

              • Pavlovs House: Players defend a house/apartment from a horde. Zombies approach from all sides and enter basement/bottom floor. Players must hold the multiple floors of the building until they have nowhere left to retreat or they hold out long enough.
              • Danzig: Players hold the middle of the map and command center. Zombies enter from allied bridges and axis spawn. Players must set up a defensive perimeter.

            • Players must defend for a time limit against endless specimens/zombies or until a boss comes and survive till the end.

            • Game should focus on defense, but game should not be stagnant, players should always be pressured and with limited ammo, should reward teamwork. (Ammo boxs at key areas. One guy holds off the horde while his team mate brings ammo or reloads.)

            • Max zombies can be upped. 30 is too few, maybe 50-70?

            • Maybe something similar to the ammo resupply boxes in DA2 can be used.

            • Red orchestra machine guns could be used as stationary defenses with limited ammo.

              we could import all the weapons/model/maps/sounds etc. from RO and make it a Killing Floor: RO mod

              people would eat it up, TW would love it

              it would bring more of the KF fan base to RO, and more of the RO fan base to KF

              nothing but profit

                um, you would need yoyo to code the wunderwaffle, and even then idk if the whole chain lightning thing is possible, though im mostly sure it is.

                im all for this idea, especially for the mp 40 because im a CoD f*g, and the mp 40 is the like one of the only decent guns in cod Waw

                  I might be able to do it myself. I have not played cod5 much so I have a question.

                  How does the DG2 work? Does the lightning go on indefinitely "infecting" or does it stop after a certain radius?

                    It stops after hitting X number of zombies, it also has a max range it can chain to, and cannot be obstructed.

                          Question, would anyone be willing to rename bones on a couple ROPlayer models or offer me a way to do it? I don't have 3ds Max and not much experience in modeling/animation programs. If I can do it in blender or Maya, any input would be appreciated.

                              Do you only need the Psk files? We don't have a use for the .Psa files because we using clot animation right?

                              http://www.filefront.com/16764053/ROPlayerModels.rar

                              Rar file has the retail and mod version of RO player models. (Good to have some variety right? )

                              Edit: Added screenshot links to Maps section on first post.
