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. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. 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 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 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.
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.

  • General Protection Fault: Please Help

    I create a listen server to play co-op play with my friends. Killing Floor will "crash," bringing me back to my desktop, and showing me a general protection fault copy and pasted below. Killing Floor remains an ongoing process that must be force ended through the task manager.

    I have been playing Killing Floor since Feb 18, 2012, and this General Protection Fault crash has been evident since then, occurring a couple of times a week. However, This error is now showing several times a day all within a period less than 2 hours. This issue is very frustrating to say the least (for myself and my friends in the server).

    I have uninstalled Killing Floor twice. 1) Uninstalled the game through steam, 2) Uninstalled the game and deleted the steam>steamapps>common>killingfloor folder. Since then, I have gone into the killingfloor.ini folder and changed a few lines which were recommended in another thread that I found addressing this issue.

    Error Message:
    Build UT2004_Build_[2004-11-11_10.48]

    OS: Windows NT 6.1 (Build: 7601)
    CPU: GenuineIntel PentiumPro-class processor @ 1729 MHz with 4095MB RAM
    Video: NVIDIA GeForce GT 435M (8562)

    General protection fault!

    History: SkeletalMeshGet <- USpriteEmitter::UpdateParticles <- AEmitter::Tick <- TickAllActors <- ULevel::Tick <- (NetMode=2) <- TickLevel <- UGameEngine::Tick <- Level KF-MountainPass_Day <- UpdateWorld <- MainLoop <- FMallocWindows::Free <- FMallocWindows::Realloc <- 4C576C61 0 FArray <- FArray::Realloc <- 0*2 <- FMallocWindows::Free

    I hope that my response can be emailed as I could not find a way to privately submit my problem.

    Not enough free HD swap space on your C drive. Free up over 1 GB of HD space and you should be good to go or move the swap file to another HD that has over 1 GB of free space.

    Windows or game engine memory addressing issues. Probably both.


    • #3
      As my hard drive is currently at 156GB/500GB occupied, I do not believe this is the case.

      How can I get the attention of a Tripwire Interactive representative aid me in this issue?

        By any chance did you have custom weapons on the server you was playing on? - Friendly, supportive game server host awaiting your arrival.

          I have no custom/modified content (weapons, maps, mutators) for Killing Floor. I only have the default files and maps available with the original game content. This is simply a "listen" server made straight from the multiplayer option from the main menu.


          • #6
            You know, I just reinstalled Windows 7 OS and am getting this problem now too. I noticed Steam updated itself and UT2K4 has the same FMALLOC:WINDOWS error.... Will try some non-UT engine games and see what is going on.

            Edit - updated DirectX on top of the fresh OS install and all is well.

              Is it likely that a moderator/developer/game master will reply in the next week to aid customers with technical support?

              If not, I would rather not bother with Killing Floor, and Tripwire Interactive, in its entirety.


              • #8
                Delete KillingFloor.ini and User.ini and verify your Killing Floor incase one of your files has not been fully updated due to a patch.

                  isnt there only like... 12 guys in twi?
                  why do you need one of them to answer your question?

                    I had already tried that solution before coming to the forums, it did not work. In fact, after attempting that solution my server now fails at wave 5 or before.

                    I am hoping for technical support from Tripwire because they developed this game. As the community is only able to shotgun solutions at me - and because my search and actions for a solution has resulted in failure - it seemed logical that I might want to ask the developers themselves.

                    If this such an unreasonable request, they can tell me that too.

                      I guess it sounds better when it's official.

                        lol, twi is going to ask the same question and give the same suggestions as we are, because it's really hard to figure out exactly what is going on sometimes, because it's might be a directx conflict (talk to microsoft) or a steam thing (this happened once before when they screwed up on a update) or your video drivers (causes lots of problems) or your system settings (pagefile etc.) or you computer's hardware (bad ram, etc.)

                          As Valken pointed out, try to update your DirectX install with this:

                          Core i5-3570k | MSI R7850 PE | 8 GB DDR3-1600 RAM | Samsung 840 Evo 120 GB for OS | Win 8.1 Pro 64bit

                            Looks like you have 4Gb of RAM. Check the size of your virtual memory page file as Valken suggested. Even if "automatically manage paging file for all drives" is checked, Windows may still be dropping the ball now and then.

                            I'd recommend the Custom Size option, and set the Initial Size and Maximum Size to the same value. In your case, at least 5120Mb. (5Gb.) Actually, I'd rather see that at 6144Mb. (6Gb.) You appear to have the disk space available, so you might want to give it a try.

                              GAH FRIGGIN F F F F!!!
                              I get this error like everytime I play some story mode lately. It happens mostly in certain areas though. It NEVER happened before, just today. I also scanned with Hijackfree and sent reports to my uncle (he is expert) and he said it's clean, so no viruses, nothing. I was thinking for a while maybe it's PC itself, but nah, it worked before without problem on the very same PC. What the hell is happening
                              Also, it doesn't happen always, just randomly, like let's say one time it happened on one spot, other time didn't, but third time happened again at the exact same spot!
