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.
  • 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.

  • Red Orchestra 2 Tweaks

    Can i request an admin to sticky this.. so i've seen alot of people complaining about bad performance, so until the performance is more optimized, we are going to have to rely on config tweaks,

    So im creating this thread for all tweaks to be posted. as im RO2 admin over at CyberGamer im getting a few site pm's over there asking on how to improve performance, first im going to mention the obvious, update your graphics and sound drivers, they play a big part in PC gaming, also make sure you defrag regulary.


    if you have any additional tweaks, post them and i will update this post with them. most of these tweaks are found in ROEngine.ini, which is located in the following path for most people, not to sure on others.

    (replace my name with yours)
    C:\Users\Geoff\Documents\My Games\UnrealEngine3\ROGame\Config

    AllowMLAA=False
    AllowFXAA=False
    MaxAnisotropy=1
    MaxMultisamples=1
    GraphicsQualitySetting=0
    CharacterQualityDetail=0
    TextureQualityDetail=0
    ShadowQualityDetail=0
    LightQualityDetail=0
    PostProcessQualityDetail=0
    bDisablePhysXHardwareSupport=False
    UseHighQualityBloom=False (probably the best one imo)
    StaticDecals=False
    DynamicDecals=False
    UnbatchedDecals=False
    LensFlares=False
    FogVolumes=False


    DO NOT DISABLE DEPTH OF FIELD! if you do your game will go dark like this
    http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/574/2011090300002.jpg

    UPDATE:

    Originally posted by supremo View Post
    You can turn it off "DepthOfField" with out it going dark.
    In order to do so you need to set Bloom to "True"

    When disabling "DepthOfField" this seems to alter the impact of Bloom lighting significantly anyway, a great deal of Bloom and blurring is removed even though Bloom is set to "True"


    Example:
    DepthOfField=false
    Bloom=True




    To disable startup movies search for the following


    bForceNoMovies=TRUE

    To disable mouse acceleration, open ROInput.ini and change to the following.
    bViewAccelerationEnabled=false


    OTHER TWEAKS NOT RELATED TO PERFORMANCE

    To remove Toggle ADS.

    If you go to Documents\My Games\UnrealEngine3\ROGame\Config and open the ROInput.ini file, look for the [ROGame.ROPlayerInput] section.

    Replace:
    "Bindings=(Name="Ironsights",Command=" Ironsights | onrelease Toss",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreC trl= False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)"

    With:
    "Bindings=(Name="Ironsights",Command=" Ironsights | onrelease Ironsights",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bI gnoreCtrl= False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)"



    got anymore? post in this thread and ill update any dev's got any tweaks we can use for performance?

    id also like to give credit to the CyberGamer community for posting the settings on our forum

    dev's can you fix that depth of field thing in a future update, it really boosts performance, as you can see by my framerates in that screenshot, but its dark as hell, only way to make it better on the eyes is to up the gamma which makes the radar useless.

            yea it seems like a bug, doesnt make any sense at all why gamma and contrast are related to DOF.

            • #7
              no idea but id love to be able to disable it, if you don't care about the radar, you can up the gamma so you can see again, but it can make the menu hard to see aswell.

              and my specs are
              AMD Phenom x2 550 Black Edition 3.11ghz
              4gb ddr2 (yes ddr2 lol)
              and HD6870

                are you able to post what else you have disabled/enabled? might be able to figure out why disabling DOF goes dark for some people.

                    For removing the stratup movies no need to add the semi icon in front of all the lines; just set this line to True :

                    [FullScreenMovie]
                    bForceNoMovies=True

                      edit in the config.ini:

                          You can turn off "DepthOfField" without the effects of going dark.
                          In order to do so you need to set Bloom to "True"

                          When disabling "DepthOfField" this seems to alter the impact of Bloom lighting significantly anyway, a great deal of Bloom is removed even though Bloom is set to "True"


                          Example:
                          DepthOfField=false
                          Bloom=True
