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

  • 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.

  • 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!

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.

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.

  • [KF] Killing Floor crashes to desktop after server changes map


    I'm playing kf on OS X Mavericks and, when playing multiplayer, after the server loads a new map after a vote, the game begins, I spawn but after a few seconds it get a black window and the game crashes to desktop.

  • #2
    I experience the same issue with Mavericks 10.9.1

    I can approve this issue - experiencing the exact same behaviour with KF on OS X Mavericks (10.9.1).

    Whenever a Map is finished and either the Server is loading a new Map, after a few seconds when the game starts (AFTER the initial Perk Selection!) the game quits without any error message. The same happened to me when I choose "Disconnect" at the end of a Map in order to return to the menu - after a few seconds in the Menu also an unexpected quit.

    Here's an extract from my Console.log for the time just before the unexpected Quit:
    04.01.14 03:10:56.552 WindowServer[88]: MPAccessSurfaceForDisplayDevice: Set up page flip mode on display 0x04280300 device: 0x7fe145306290  isBackBuffered: 1 numComp: 3 numDisp: 3
    04.01.14 03:10:56.856 WindowServer[88]: Display 0x4280300 released by conn 0x2235f
    04.01.14 03:10:56.932[163]: (com.tripwireinteractive.killingfloor.52304[2739]) Exited with code: 1
    Hope you can fix this soon, as it is quite annoying to have to restart KF everytime after a map


    • #3
      Issue is also being discussed here:


      • #4
        swizzinex, KF never crash in the menu for me. It' always in-game after loading a second map (and sometime even on the first game).

        Since yesterday, however, KF will not launch - it crashes after the splash screen is shown. I validated file, removed ClientRegistry.blob, restarted the computer 2 times, added the -window startup option - nothing helped.


        • #5
          KF does not launch on Mavericks Mac OS X 10.9.1

          The game does simply not start. It shows the splash image and then quits.

          I verified the game cache: ok
          I cleaned the steam application folder: didn't help
          I deleted killingfloor.ini: didn't help
          I deleted the whole Killing Floor Application Support Folder: didn't help

          Here is the killingfloor.log file contents, something seems to be 'NULL':

            Anything new on the map-change crash problem?
            I'm experiencing it frequently when hosting and playing with my friends.

            Would be nice to get rid of it.


            • #7
              I second this. This has been happening to me recently. I don't know why, but it worked fine a while ago. If you can also fix this issue (OpenGL related) it would be neat.

                Problem still persists for me as well. Also - it won't save perk progress.

                    Killing Floor crashes to desktop after server changes map

                    This is still going on...
                    I've followed all of the steps on the instructions in the link below as well as disabling the Steam Interface in-game;

                    Did anyone come close to achieving a fix yet?
                    I'm running Mavericks 10.9.5/3.3GHz/4GB/nVidia GeForce GT 740

                    I'm going to go ahead and start including my Crash Logs going forward.

                          Apparently nothing has been fixed regarding this problem. Everything folks are stating is also happening to me. It would be nice for me to further support this game through DLC but until they fix this issue I will not waste my money on any further projects from this company.
