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.

    A little necro, so the dl error is because the page has "evolved" for RO2 and all old stuff made the way to archive - the correct link now is
    but I can't guarantee this version works as after the post there was some issues I don't remember was corrected after all.

      Yeah well that's true, but hey would you rather someone make a post not knowing there was an existing thread on it that could be continued or use the search function and find said thread and then make a reply on it instead of creating your own that could have been easily solved by going to a thread already in discussion?

      Ok fair enough; cheers for the fixed link!

      Did you mean this issue this guy posted earlier:
      Originally posted by star_dust View Post
      Well after checking my logs it seems xban is not working after all , here is a small sample of the log :

      ScriptLog: Mutators XBanMut_v02b
      Warning: Failed to load 'NULL': Can't resolve package name
      Warning: Failed to load 'Class None.XBanMut_v02b': Can't resolve package name
      ScriptLog: GameInfo::InitGame : bEnableStatLogging False

      If anyone has any ideas I am all ears .
      And yeah, I'll check it out on my server to see if it all works or not and then either edit this post or post another reply if someone else has replied to this comment thread.

      EDIT: Hmmm, what ini file? Is there supposed to be a seperate ini file I am suppose to create or supposed to be there??
      // - can be defined in the ini file
      Also I tried admin xlist and does not list all players on the server - just gives me a blank space in console and I tried admin xkick myself but nothing happened....

      Ok so I added: ServerActors=XBanMut_v02b.XBanMut_v02b to the main ini file and admin xlist works: instead of a blank space after enter, I get this:
      default reason codes
      [] 0) 0 - no description []
      [] 1) 1 - TK []
      [] 2) 2 - offensive name []
      [] 3) 3 - exploiting []
      [] 4) 4 - spawn killing []
      [] 5) 5 - other []
      Ok, that's a start, not what I was really expecting, I was actually expecting a list of all players on the server, like how admin playerlist does it but it would appear this command no longer functions(just gives a blank space after enter) when I have xban mut on. I tried it again with admin xkick and admin xkickban on myself and still nothing....
      // - the xlist command will list in the console the reasons table.
      Oh well that explains that. So how do you list players to kick/ban then if nothing happens when you do admin playerlist??! And where is the ini file? Is it suppose to be in the main ini file of the game or a separate one you're suppose to make to complement this mut but I don't how to make it as there's no instructions on making one!!

      EDIT 2: Ok it would appear I am able to kick and ban WebAdmin, but I cannot xkick or xkickban myself for some reason...nothing happens. I can however ban or kick myself using the default method which is without the "x" infront of kick and kickban. So I can kick myself with this command "admin xkick Boltte" and then I get kicked from the game or "admin xkickban Boltte" and then I get banned from my own game.

      Also the command for player list is not playerlist, it's kick list, my bad.

      Edit 3: It has come to my attention that AdminPlusV3 English and Country tags muts don't work with XBan, removing those and it works; however I am unable to set custom reasons as I don't know what the ini file is suppose to look like and when you kick someone, a window will show on their end with a title called "Kicked" and a couple of sentences, first one being "You have been forcibly removed from the game." and the second is "Reason: None Specified" which confuses the person that got kicked as they have no idea why they got kicked!
