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. 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!

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.

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.

  • weapon alignment is offset

    This is a major bug I happen to experience almost every third round I play.

    It happens that my weapon doesnt shoot where its aiming anymore. Instead it shoot one millimeter to the left or or right of where its aiming. This makes accurate shots impossible.
    It appears to happen more often when you are standing on uneven ground. The same bug sometimes appears on tanks too, when you are on uneven ground but now I got this bug quite often with small arms fire.

    it makes shooting at long range really impossible and destroys gameplay.

    Anyone else experiences this bug?

    I couldnt find anything in the forums.

    Yep, I posted about this a long time ago and it's still around. I hope this bug doesn't persist into RS2:Vietnam.

    The bug is location specific (where you are on map) and which direction you are facing currently.
    Each 90 degree turn (left/right) changes it from whether you are aiming offset or right on.

    One way to tell is when you are aiming with a gun (not mounted MG), if you press SHIFT to steady your aim and zoom in you will notice the iron sight shudder left/right instead of having a smooth zoom in.

    This is an example of the bug happening on a map being affected by it, and how your aim is offset.
    The first 0 degrees is in reference to whichever direction does not have the bug affecting it.
    0 degrees: no offset
    90 degrees: largest offset in this direction (lets say turning right), bullets land left of aim.
    180 degrees: no offset, aim returns to normal
    270 degrees: (now facing 90 degrees left of original position) largest offset in this facing direction, bullets land right of aim.
    360 degrees: back to original facing. Aim is normal again.

    But with the nature of an FPS game, you are going to always be turning in different directions and firing so you cant always know the offset direction. Makes long shots really difficult sometimes :|

      I have same bug now. After I changed the monitor type. Before that i had resolution 1920 x 1200, 16:10 and no problem.
      Now i have WQHD (2560×1440) monitor and after that i noticed this bug. Bullets are not flying where i am pointing with iron sights. Slightly to the left side of iron sights. IT IS REALY ANOYING!!!
      1. I tried deleting all config files. (make copy of them)
      2. Then ingame set up all with 16:10 resolution. Graphic, controls, etc.
      3. Exit game. (make copy of config files)
      4. After that i manually edited config file “ROEngine.ini“ to „ResX=2560“, ResY=“1440“ and max fps.
      5. I changed all config files attributes to „READ ONLY“
      Now is much better, but have to test it a little bit longer.
      Can someone test it too? Anybody plays RO2 on WQHD monitor and no problems???
      Sorry for my potato English.

        It literally depends on a map only, so make sure you are playing official maps, not some customs or MCP.

          It was „TE-Bridges_of_Druzhina_MCP“ (and Tula – is official???) and appearing that bug - is about difference between resolutions. When i have WUXGA (1920×1200), bug was not present. When i have QHD / WQHD (2560×1440) aim bug was there.

          It’s easy to see that bug is active, when i try Russian DP-28 on full auto. Bullets are clearly on left side of front iron sight.

          Sometimes it is hard to find out where the bullet lands. Question: Bullet decals on walls represent exact point, where bullet lands or they are “random”? I only tested id on walls (and players... )

          So i can play on my new 2560×1440 monitor on other (non native) resolution without this bug, but this is not the way.

              I tested virtual resolution 3840x2160 - and bug still there. Looks like 16:9 ressolutions are bugged. And 16:10 (and other) works fine, but is not my native resolution. :-/

              And why is here on forum thread "The Bug Report" when no one gives you help?


              • #8
                Well maybe because old game such as RO2 does not really support resolutions higher than 1920 1080?
                And the forums is dead for about half a year now,you dont want to expect anyone to help you, if you want to sort out your problem, talk to anyone having 4K resolution, on example Raven.
