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 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
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.

    No, the file replacement fix does not currently work. Let me make it clear that the problem is solely the router's fault, and not the ISP you are with. The workarounds should all work, providing your router is not actually crashing. These are either:
    • connect to a game and when it disconnects you (you see specimens walking into walls) open the console with the ` or # key and type reconnect (you'll have to do this twice)
    • wait longer than 1 minute after refreshing the server list to join the game
    • add servers to your favourites and instead of clicking on internet, click favourites and connect from there

    If your router allows telnet access you can delete the offending rule as detailed in my first post.

            Unless you can telnet into your router then you currently can't fix the issue, you'll have to make do with one of the workarounds I listed a few posts back.

              A new fix is available. Download the MasterServer2.zip file in the first post, and follow the same instructions as before but with the MasterServer2.vdf file instead. You shouldn't need to replace the MasterServers.vdf file. If you are unable to download the attachment, open your MasterServer2.vdf file (found in your "Steam\config" directory) in notepad and copy and paste the following into in, replacing what was in it.
              Code:
              "MasterServers"
              {
                  "hl1"
                  {
                      "0"
                      {
                          "addr"        "69.28.151.162:27013"
                      }
                      "1"
                      {
                          "addr"        "72.165.61.136:27010"
                      }
                      "2"
                      {
                          "addr"        "69.28.151.162:27010"
                      }
                      "3"
                      {
                          "addr"        "68.142.72.250:27010"
                      }
                      "4"
                      {
                          "addr"        "72.165.61.189:27010"
                      }
                  }
                  "hl2"
                  {
                      "0"
                      {
                          "addr"        "72.165.61.153:27015"
                      }
                  }
                  "rdkf"
                  {
                      "0"
                      {
                          "addr"        "68.142.72.250:27012"
                      }
                      "1"
                      {
                          "addr"        "67.132.200.140:27012"
                      }
                  }
                  "gms"
                  {
                  }
              }
              Save the file and then make it read only, as in the previous fix.

              Hopefully this will let you enjoy Killing Floor without any further disconnecting issues - please post back with whether this is the case or not.

                Hi, I tried the V2 version of the MasterServer2 file. However, It didn't work for me. Also, I have tried the cmd method, but it didn't work for me. If it makes any difference I am using Windows 7.

                  Please note, on the Mac the file you need to modify is located here:

                  Steam.app/Contents/MacOS/osx32/config/MasterServer2.vdf

                  So follow Morello's instructions, just modify this file instead of the one he lists in his directions for Windows.

                    Thorii, did you make sure that you made the file read-only after making the changes? Otherwise Steam will overwrite it again. It's probably best to quit out of Steam first, replace the file, make it read-only, and then restart Steam. If that doesn't work then I'll have to find out why it worked when I tried it, but not for you.

                    Also telnet isn't installed by default in Windows 7 so you'd have to install it, or use something like Putty instead.

                      Information Requested

                      Alright, thanks.

                      In answer to your question, yes I did make the file read-only, but steam was running at that time. Since then I have signed out of steam, changed it again and then restarted steam and I am still having no luck.

                      As for my router information, I am currently using a Thomson TG585 v7.
                      I have added exceptions to this router for all the ports suggested in Yoshiro's guide already.

                      Also, how would I go about, as you said, "installing" telnet or Putty, and would that indeed help me fix my problem.

                      Thanks in advance.

                        this new fix with the masterservers2.vdf did not work. exactly the same thing worked. i have an 02 router and i dont want to alter any configurations on it because when i first bought the game, it was fine until a day after i got it.

                          To install Telnet on Windows 7:
                          1. Start
                          2. Control Panel
                          3. Programs And Features
                          4. Turn Windows features on or off
                          5. Check Telnet Client
                          6. Click OK

                          Then follow the Telnet instructions in the link in the first post. As long as the router allows Telnet access and you have a username and password with high enough privileges then you should be able to permanently fix it, yes.

                            Problem

                            I installed telnet, and I got to the username and password bit. Then, I found that none of the deault passwords worked, and the password I used to connect my router to my ISP didn't work either. If I have access to my Thomson router via web browser, is there anyway I could view passwords or change them etc. Thanks much..

                            And, I want to avoid all contact possible with my ISP as they will have no idea what I'm talking about because ISPs in Cyprus suck. ;O

                              As it seems my last message didn't reach here, or I'm just paranoid and posting too much D;

                              Anyway, an edit from what I posted, if you can see it.

                              KF now works perfect, thank you. I used telnet and it solved the problem straight away. I had to go about messing with the settings as the username and password weren't the default ones..

                              Anyway, many thanks, if I need help with KF I know where to come..
