    RO RO Sound Files For Use in Project

    I am currently planning an semi-educational animation/slideshow, on the Eastern Front, as a college project but am coming up against the familiar wall of having little options for sound effects. I no longer really play games or use my Steam account but my passion for history is as alive as...

    Should I get RO2?

    With the weather getting worse and holidays coming up I've been playing games a bit more recently. I've gone back and played some RO:Ost for the first time in months (maybe a year or more). I can only find one (Russian) server with many people playing. I'm wondering now about RO2. When RO2...

    Smothering grenades/explosions

    To me at least it seemed that in the original RO the blast from grenades seemed to invisibly penetrate players and be able to kill multiple players when a real grenades effectiveness may have been smothered by the bodies of men in front of it. Of course this may have been due to the fact the...

    FestungKurland - really overlooked map...

    I was just very bored this morning, looking for an interesting game on Red Orchestra. I noticed an empty server playing a map called FestungKurland_b5 (I think, it was beta-something). So I joined the server and was taken aback. It was like KurlandKessel, but bigger and ten times better looking...

    Good book for mappers

    I've been reading the book Soviet Field Fortifications 1941-45 from Osprey. Obviously I thought I'd point it out because it'd be a good resource for mappers on how to accurately map Russian trenches and fighting positions. It's got some good diagrams on trench layout and construction which...

    Stalingrad Grain Elevator

    I'm drawing a picture, nothing special just for my own amusement, and I need to know what the inside of the famous Grain Elevator in Stalingrad looked/looks like on the inside since the picture I'm drawing is of the Russians defending it from the inside... but I don't even know what it looks...

    Russian tank markings 1945?

    I need to know whether Russian tanks would be using white stripes (like in my sig) at the time of the Battle of Seelow Heights (16th - 19th April)? Or was it only used in the city itself?

    Has PPSh recoil been reduced?

    I was playing a minute ago and it felt a lot like the recoil of the PPSh had been reduced. I typed in chat about it and someone said it has been reduced and they'd seen it in update notes. Obviously I'm happy if it has been reduced but I can't seem to find any update news saying that it has...

    Pictures of Soviet infantry uniforms?

    I'm looking for some pictures of Soviet infantry uniforms from WWII, if possible the sort worn in Stalingrad. I have searched the web but most results are websites selling replica uniforms, which can be very confusing. Does anyone know a website dedicated to the the different uniforms of WWII...

    Runtime Error :(

    RO has been working fine up until I tried to play it today and got this: I deleted the game content and re-installed it but that didn't help so now I have no idea how to fix this... :confused:

    Wondering whether I killed my computer...

    This isn't help with RO exactly, it's a question about whether, through lack of patience, I killed my computer... I'd closed RO in a hurry and it was 'powering down' as it does (I was gonna update my memory later that day to see if it would speed up the process) but because RO takes an age to...

    Lyes Krovy

    Someone on another forum wanted some information on the assault in Lyes Krovy but looking on the net I can't seem to find anything... Can anybody here give me any resources on it?

    Zvezda (The Star) any good?

    I'm thinking about buying the film Zvezda, or The Star but I thought I'd ask here first and see if anyone can tell me if it's worth it. By the way I don't really like un-realistic war films or ones driven heavily by propaganda (which usually ends up making them un-realistic.)
