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.

    What I was getting at is the fact that the lessor CPU's (like mine) are not having the issues some of the higher performance CPU's are having. As in the other game I play that was having issues, single threaded CPU's did not seem to bet experiencing the issues the multi-threaded cpu's were. Could be purely anecdotal though.

      Not to derail this thread, but I don't understand what you're saying. Why would:
      OS: Windows 10 LTSB
      Exact Hardware:
      CPU: Ryzen 1700 @3.7ghz
      RAM: 32gb DDR4
      GPU: GTX 1070
      want to run this game on low settings? My assumption was that he was having issues playing the game with default settings. I thought most here (with the exception of the obvious lower performing pc's) had well endowed PC's.
      Yeah that was my post. I was simply indicating that regardless of what setting my game is on (low/high/ultra/whatever) the game still runs poorly. I've tweaked some settings and gotten decent performance now. For anyone reading who is having similar problems, this worked for me:

      Turn AA off (of course)
      Turn post-processing down to low. In my experience, this actually had a greater effect than any other setting I experimented with. I'm not sure why.
      If necessary, turn shadows/lighting down as well.
      Turn framerate smoothing off, leave vsync on (depending on your specs, whether or not you exceed 60fps when the game is running OK)

      As has been posted in the steam forums, there are also some changes you can make to your config.ini file. Go to: C:\Users\**your name**\Documents\My Games\Rising Storm 2\ROGame\Config and open "ROengine.ini" with notepad. You are then going to want to ctrl+f and find the "bUseTextureStreaming" line. Change "true" to "false."

      Then, you are going to want to find the "poolsize" setting. Be careful, as there are more than one "poolsize" lines. The one you will be looking for will be under "texture streaming" (yes, despite this being turned off in the settings I still had some performance gains through this step.) It will be set at some value, mine was 0. Whatever value you type in (to my understanding) will be the amount of vram dedicated to this (in megabytes.) I would start at 1000 and make your way up. I have had considerable success at 4000, and recently have bumped it up to 6000 without issue.

      By doing so, I get 45-60fps (still well below what they should be...) and am able to enjoy the game.

      I truly hope that this is but a temporary solution, and the devs find ways to better utilize our hardware. We're counting on you!

        Have you tried (and can you with the Ryzen?) turn off hyperthreading and try that just for curiosity sake?

          I have not tried yet. I doubt it will improve performance much, as Microsoft released a patch improving SMT and everything is where it should be. If I remember I'll give it a shot tonight and let everyone know.

          In other news, nvidia just released a new driver. Maybe some performance increases are coming along with that?


          • #35
            All right, so I very much doubt this will have been the FPS drop/stuttering issue for others, but I fixed mine. I noticed the other day in CPU-Z that my DRAM Frequency was low and set to single channel instead of dual (I have dual channel DDR3 16gb @ 2400). Apparently, my RAM was in the wrong slot, as I had it in the 1st and 2nd slot, but tried the 2nd and 4th slots. I also had to set the speed profile in the BIOS to a frequency of 2400.

            I feel incredibly dumb that I didn't catch this months ago, but, it has worked wonders for me. Massive improvement overall. Like I said, I highly doubt this might be the case for other people on here, but you never know. Always a good idea to check CPU-Z and make sure your hardware is running as it should.

              From the ro2 days none has ever manage to solve the performance issues once and for all, too many suggestions on the intenret, yet still the gamers affected are high. Some people don't complain and play with crappy fps, some others try to fix them, and the rest abandon the game.
              Thing is that even people with great setups experience problems and the culprit was always the game nothing else. Try whatever, nothing will give u the performance of other fps games.

                Windows 7 64 bit
                i7 920 @ 3.6 Ghz
                Asus GTX 1070 Gaming X
                RAM 12 GB
                HDD 1 TB
                Settings: Max

                Please fix the stuttering! Last patch didnt help. The first game is fine then the stuttering begins while still showing 60 fps. Like a slideshow from elementary school.


                • #38
                  Quick report on the new patch: still dipping to 30fps periodically without any real rhyme or reason...


                  • #39
                    Unfortunately, I still got massive stuttering on all maps. Cu chi is alright, runs pretty decent but all the others are really bad. I tried setting everything to low or off and it had no effect at all. On lowest settings I had around 140 fps but it still felt like a 90's slideshow. Is it my Windows 7 or something? Too many objects for my CPU?

                      I got massive slideshow effect when I have Media Player Classic open with a video loaded in it.. Try to close everything you do not need like your anti virus, this will eliminate potential program that messes with your performance in game.

                      Yeah, the thing is my fps is fine even on the highest settings. Mostly capped at 60 fps but there is still stuttering and it runs really bad. I've tried disable as much as possible to but no luck there either.
