Grunts,

Update 1.6 is here and deploying to servers and clients now! It has been a long journey, but this run through the jungle has finished its last tour. The team would like to thank all the players and admins who have joined us along the way and become a part of our little part of the internet and gaming. As always we will strive to learn from our experiencing with Rising Storm 2: Vietnam and apply them towards our future projects to create even better games moving ahead! See you in the jungle.

Alan Wilson, Game Director of Rising Storm 2: Vietnam wanted to pass along this message to all:
I'd just like to say thanks to everyone involved in the last 7 years of development and support for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam. That includes everyone at Tripwire, AMG and all the other contractors that have worked on the game during that time; all the modders, community mappers, server admins and everyone investing their time and hard work into the game; and, as always, everyone who has played the game - and those still owning me in game. Just because we (Tripwire) have reached the point where we have to stop development, it doesn't mean anyone else has to stop and support will continue via the community team white listing community mods. I'm looking forward to enjoying the game for a long while yet, as we plot our next target in the franchise in the future - we'll see you in the jungle, as always. Roswell Six Actual out!​

In celebration of this update, Double XP has been turned on and will continue for the next week!

Yep, I can hear people from other servers as well. And yet again, I agree, another community-made map, converted into original roster or maps with no credit for their work. It looks just looks like you stole it from the community.


The community team are hoping to gather information on the VOIP issue that players are experiencing that remains after the fixes in play, and I have asked for guidance on what information would be useful.
You might want to suggest to them to revert back before the Patch 1.6, as while VOIP was broken, at least it didn't break to the point of being to able to hear and speak to people from different servers. I've submitted a ticket already
 
The SAO (south american oficial) servers do not have the new map CuaViet on their map votation list, we wanted to play it a lot, please fix that little issue.

Please post your details here in the forums as well: https://forums.tripwireinteractive....1-6-in-game-voice-chat-investigation.2337294/

While we had hoped the fixes that went in would fix most if not all of the reported issues, they are not "new" to this update but have been more rare and hard for us to reproduce. Rolling back would not accomplish what you hope here.
 
I have a bug, and I think it happens since last update. Basically, my mic doesn't work. Is well set up, works on Steam and when I click configure microphone, I can hear it properly through steam. However, when I hold the voice chat key, the game won't recognice any sound, and the needle in the radio dial won't make a move, obviously others can't hear me. Any fix to this? Thanks in advance.

Same here. My VOIP was flawless and I've been playing since Alpha. But as of this update, I can barely get VOIP to work even half the time. What the heck.
