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. 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 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.

    The text maybe a bit hard to follow, as that book cites production from all over the commonwealth, i.e enfield, longbranch, lithgow, ishapore etc

    also theres a line drawing of the product improved lithgow prototype, mentioned in your first article.

          Since there seems to be some people knowledgeable in FAL's in Vietnam, does anyone know if the ANZAC's utilized SUIT sights on their FAL's in Vietnam?
          Over 4 years and still can't get signatures to run!

            Honestly not sure about Trilux's in Aus, let alone during the Vietnam timeframe - but let me answer your question, with a question. Lol .....

              I bet that was more or at least equally as common as the 12 XM21s they got issued. Which apparently justifies it.

                I'll be super devastated if we can't all have target scopes on our Slur's, ...oh & Owens too. Lol

                to give an idea of how much influence the XM-21 had on Australia's vietnam war, when the army finally started to put its sniping program back together in the mid 70's, (after long hiatus) the first few intakes of students went through with 35+ year old No1MkIII HT's (smellies). Aparently the xm-21's were still sitting in arsenal @ iirc holsworthy well into the 90's

                Yeah you are right, really having either in game, is "grossly overreaching"

                  By the time the ANZAC entered the war with regular troops, the M60 was already introduced for years in numbers. First orders for testing were in 1960. In 1961 the first production models came in. By the time they entered the war officially in 1965, it was pretty much a matter of choice which LMG to use. The L2A1 couldn't do much what the L1A1 could do also, at a lighter weight. That's probably why there aren't that much pictures around of the L2A1. At that time there were different muzzle devices available. It might have been a choice in the armory, which one to use. Usually soldiers will favour less weight and that might be the reason why that big recoil reducer didn't see much use. The L2A1 isn't really suited for automatic fire anyways. The handbook recommends bursts of 2-3 rounds for effectively accurate fire. At that rate a semi auto L1A1 is not that much inferior. And firing from a closed bolt makes that plattform undesirable for extensive fire anyways.

                    At that point I don't see it hurting anything to give the Marksman class a scoped L1A1 as a loadout alternative to the XM21 down the road.

                      That sounds too good to be not balanced with an awful scope like the SVD. A FAL with low magnification scope could be easily gamebreaking overpowered.

                        Evidence would suggest otherwise.

                        Only got to look as far as RO2.

                            How exactly would that be overpowered in any way? It's still just a semi-auto rifle, and if it's accuracy was modeled realistically it wouldn't even be as accurate as the XM21(which already has a low powered scope with pretty good FOV).

                            I mean if that would somehow be "gamebreaking overpowered" how the hell is the XM21 already not overpowered? Army Marksmen aren't typically racking up the kills in this game. Ranges allow you to perform almost ideally with an AK or M16, LMGs, and not to mention in many cases the PPSH as well.

                            Omitting something from the game because of the fear it would be "too overpowered" is one of the lamest reasons not to add weapons imo. Add the damn weapons if they make sense, and make them as authentic as possible.

                            You could probably give the L1A1 a damn ACOG and people would still be able to rack up more kills with an M16 or PPSH.

                              The XM21 is gimped down with a slow time to go into aim down sights and abysmal sway. When you fired a real battlerifle of that class, with a low magnification scope, then you should rather understand what I mean. Marksmen rifles are crippled in that game for balance reasons.

                                Yeah and they shouldn't be. The "balance reasons" are complete bull**** imo. Scopes don't magically make rifles death machines where they need other attributes reduced, not in RS2 at least.

                                When you're in range virtually all the time in the game to be counter-sniped with a Type 56 or M16A1 scoped rifles are not overpowered. They become even less so when people learn the maps that get constantly played on.

                                To this day I will never understand the fear that putting a scope on a rifle makes it "too good," not when it already so damn easy to use iron sights in the game anyways.

                                In any case that has nothing to do with adding a scoped L1A1 or not, you're now talking about how scoped rifles are treated in general in the game.
