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.

  • 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.

    Avatars are disabled.
  • All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, you can have both text and images

  • - 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.

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.

  • {How To} Install a Mod

    Since I've seen a lot of users who need help installing mods, I figured I'd make a how2. Just covering the basic steps of installing a mod. It'd be nice if people could give some tips and tricks for problem solving if they have any. Someone please make sure i have it all - I set myself up in such a was as i skip a ton of steps, but i think i remember the basics, lol. But here goes -

    *******************************INSTALLING YOUR MODS******************************

    1 - Go to your Program Files > Steam > SteamApps > Common > Killing Floor. Make a shortcut to this folder on your desktop - this will speed things up later.
    On a mac, the first few folders are /Users/*you*/Library/Application Support/Steam/ (this needs confirmation> was confirmed)

    2 - Find and download the mod files you want.

    3 - I have a dedicated home folder for my mods - I open my downloads folder and copy the zip folders to my mutators folder so that if i have to reset my KF files for any reason I don't lose my mods (since they won't be re-installed by steam). I suggest you do this now.

    4 - Once all the files are set up, unzip them (7Zip is a nice program if you need one). I prefer to make sure they are all in separate folders for each mod (the Weapon Pack is one folder, the WTF mut is another) to prevent file confusion.

    5 - Now that you have the mods downloaded and unzipped and your files are all in order, the important step. Go to the folder containing your mutator. In it you will see folders like: Animations, System, Textures, Static Meshes, ect. These will change depending on the mod.
    Alright. now ctrl + click each folder. you can leave out readme's and suchlike. Ctrl + C copy them. open up the KF desktop shortcut or go to the kf folder as seen in step 1.
    Now make sure you are in the base KF folder. At the top you should see an animations folder. closer to the middle is System and Textures. If you see these you are in the right folder. Just hit ctrl + v to paste. When it asks if u wanna merge folders, hit yes. If it asks you to replace FILES, this means that either a file was misplaced or you have already installed this mod, or a previous version. Usually, its the latter and you can say yes.

    6 - You're mods are now installed. Go play KF. Go solo, then up at the top, click mutators. Find the mod in the list and apply.
    ***CERTAIN MUTATORS CONFLICT WITH EACH OTHER _ USE EACH ONE BY ITSELF B4 YOU MIX THEM*** You should now be able to play the mutator.

    Mutator specific issues should be brought up on the original forum or as a PM to the creator - i can't help much unless it was a basic screw up If mutator creators have tricks for their mutators, post them and I'll edit this.
    Putting mutators on a server has some extra steps - My wireless router won't open the right server ports, so I haven't even bothered to learn them If someone wants to post those additional steps I'd be very grateful.
    HOPE THIS HELPED

    ******************************LISTING STATUS******************************
    due to the fact that certain mutators would abuse perks and make leveling easier, TWI implemented a listing system as follows:

    THE WHITE LIST: mods/muts/maps on the white-list have both perk usage AND leveling available. These have been tested by TWI and its been determined that they don't abuse the perk system. There IS NOT as system for determining if a mod/mut/map is white-listed. sorry. TWI is constantly changing the list as new listings are added and old ones are taken off (either due to discovered exploits OR a new version). There are suggestions as to how a system would be implemented to solve this, but TWI does not wish to continuously update the white-list and use up bandwidth for endless patching

    THE GRAY LIST: contains mods/muts that are either in white-list limbo or don't quite have what it takes to make the white-list. These mods will allow you to USE perks, but NOT LEVEL them. Stats will increase on the perk screen (sometimes) but they WILL BE RESET at the end of the map. Many weapons end up here waiting for true white-listing.

    THE "BLACK" LIST: the unofficial name of "the other stuff", the black-list is all the stuff that is not on the other lists. Either its a map with exploits or a mut that IS an exploit, these are things that have yet to be submitted for white-listing, have been rejected for white-listing, or are so obviously not list-able that they won't even be submitted for white-listing. These are mods that abuse perks or don't use perks (the WTF mut and Server Perks have internal perk systems independent of TWI perks.).

    *************************HOW TO USE THE CUSTOM TRADER MUTATOR**************************
    alrighty, the computer hates me, and i don't feel like typing out all of this, so here is the link to BD's custom trader mutator - all the info is there. He has answered many questions, but i will help those still confused if i can.
    LINK: http://forums.tripwireinteractive.co...ad.php?t=47740


    *********************RUNNING A SERVER -- ADDING MODS TO SERVER PACKAGES*******************
    Thanks to Lucidious134 for this stuff:

    Gonna post this here to help others out.

    This is a small bit about serverpackages

    1) Open UCL file for the weapon you are adding with notepad.
    2) Go to the third line (weapon=)
    3) It should look like this:
    Weapon=(ClassName=BDHuntingRifleB2.HUNTING_RIFLE,P ickupClassName=BDHuntingRifleB2.Hunting_RiflePickup,AttachmentClassName=BDHuntingRifleB2.Hunting_Rifl eAttachment,FriendlyName=BDHuntingRifleB2.HUNTING_ RIFLE.ItemName,Description=BDHuntingRifleB2.HUNTIN G_RIFLE.Description,FallbackName="Hunting Rifle",FallbackDesc="A recreational hunting weapon, featuring a firing trigger and a powerful integrated scope. ")
    4) Take out the bolded part. Remember, your pickups should always look like MUTATOR_NAME.SOMETHINGRELEVENTPickup. If you have a comma in there, you're doing it wrong.
    5) Put that in your custom trader file.

    6) Go to Killingfloor.ini and open it with notepad
    7) Scroll down to ServerPackages= and add your own line of that
    8) Add the package file. Basically, for weapons you just want to take out the part BEFORE the period in your custom trader entry, like so:
    BDHuntingRifleB2.Hunting_RiflePickup

    Note: You will see the bolded text SEVERAL times in the .ucl so that's how you can tell what to add and if it's the right thing to add.


    Not sure if the mutator.u can have a different name then the filename so, just to be safe.


    ******************************STUFF TO KNOW - FAQS I REMEMBER******************************
    "will someone check my serverpackages/startup line. somthing like kfmod.XXMODNAMEXX?" ---- KFMod.XX is the package containing TWI standard stuff. Mods will have their own packages. Opening the mods in the editor or asking the modder if you don't know how will give you the real line.

    "Um... My perks don't work..." ---- Check the ***LISTING STATUS SECTION*** Just note that mods have to be approved for use with perks. There is no system other than trial and error as to knowing which ones are or aren't listed

    "I'm not using mods, but still can't use perks" ---- Sometimes listing status stays after you disable the mods - a clean start of KF solves this 99% of the time



    ****INSTRUCTIONS FOR Y'ALL*****

    If you have a FAQ - ask it
    If you have stuff i should add - add it and i'll post it (with credit where credit is due, ofc)
    direct noobs here! i see to many people not reading this and asking about listing or how to install things. Don't answer them, direct them here - hopefully it will increase self sufficiancy.

          I remember hearing that weapon mutators required further work to actually appear or be added to the trader, although that might just be for some. If this applies to most/all weapon muts, I'd suggest something along the lines of how to add it to the trader. I might be mistaken though.

            Yeah, but that only applies to some of them. Jack Carver's guns didn't need that treatment IIRC, but Braindead's rifle did in the first release.

                I don't have a Mac and never had one but I think it should be the same process. Copy all the files to the KF directory. Just like in that tutorial.

                  I too, am a windows person, but I believe works the same way. Except the keyboard shortcuts and whatnot. About the weapon muts - do u mean giving instructions on how 2 use braaindeads custom trader mutator? I can add that as well, I guess... tho I'm gonna have to wait till I get home (the phone browser only goes so far....) that is what u meant right? Or am I missing something entirely different?

                          Not sure if you covered this but im getting an unknown steam error after placing the bot mod in my system folder i cant even pick any perks ?.

                            This is due to the listing status of the mod. Due to the fact that certain mods and muts can make leveling perks easier, a "whitelist" was created. any mut on the whitelist will work with perk leveling. Later, a "greylist" was created. Many weapons and muts are on this one. They are allowed to use perks, but not level them. (while in game, the numbers for leveling the perk WILL go up, but they will be reset when the match is over). The bot mut, since it adds more Zeds for u to kill and level on, is not whitelisted - you won't be able to use perks with it.
                            (Note - adding note about whitelisting to main post)
