Alright, so instead of posting in some forum and not getting answers for days or weeks, ill ask here
I just downloaded the new(ish) update, the one where they added the personnel carriers. Anyway, when I go to launch the game, the splash screen window thing comes up. Normally, this would close after a few seconds and the game would launch and go fullscreen. Instead, the splash screen window stays up, and the process stops responding, and starts using up 700,000 lb of memory.
I always close it when it gets around there, because I know its not going to launch.
My graphics card and all other drivers are up-to-date, so I don't know what's up.
I plan on running the "verify integrity of game files" or whatever later, maybe that'll help.
I'm not on my computer right now, so I can't try anything right now, but pls halp?
Google was of no use, so that's why I'm asking here.
DH still had the fully crewed tank server and the 70-man 29th server which is always full.
The true successor to RO1/DH is also in development, have you heard of Festung Europa?
RO2 is considered heresy.

Shit's annoying, man. And the script kiddies who have figured out how to mask their voice comm as another players. One guy did something fun with it, by pretending to be Westboro Baptist Church and making every racist remark about Australians he could think of.
But most of the time they just scream, play shitty music and be fucken annoying
Camping is half the game, if that's what you call securing a good position, defending, or setting up an MG nest. I don't know why pre-pubescent kids come over expecting a run-and-gun COD spinoff.

Yes. He was the only character I liked and he got killed.
Why did he charge the Russians at the end? They said the war was over. Was it because he was a uniformed German leading a band of civilians?
>Man running and firing a submachine gun from the hip kills three men accurately aiming and taking cover behind sandbags
He was advancing at the russian line with his weapon drawn, the war wasn't literally over.
The russians were trying to convince them to surrender by saying it's already over and fighting is pointless.

I actually survived, the rus were all massacred and we won.
I'm just going to say this,
MkB42 should not be in the game. It's historically inaccurate and far too easy to use against typical rifleman. I know because every time I use Elite Assault with MkB42 I cannot be stopped.
That is all
>The Battle of Stalingrad (23 August 1942 – 2 February 1943)

It didn't see service to the degree the game portrays it but it did see service and you're dumb for wanting it completely removed

I think he's trying to say the weapon itself was inaccurate and complaining about the fact that in the game he can mow kids down with no issue.
Not sure though, he might just be a tremendous faggot

[spoiler]That's my Steam ID. I'm very sorry for being off topic by the way.[/spoiler]
I pretty much play rifleman exclusively unless the SLs and whatnot are absolutely retarded. Mostly because I prefer the bolt action rifles over SMGs and semi-auto rifles. Just play a lot better with them.
>See guy running
>gets behind a shitty brick wall
>glorious 8mm mg spray

Never touched RO-2 again, fuck playing urban combat without wall penetration. Need to install rising storm again, that was the shit.
Yeah, I really hate how there's very little to not penetration in RO2. I've shot guys through fenceposts a few times, but that's the most I've seen bullets go through. Really sucks, would be a lot better with actual bullet physics.
That's how I feel most of the time. Unless the SL are fuckheads and not using smoke/are camping/etc then I'll just play as rifleman or some other assaulting class.
Especially in Rising Storm. Dat Garand goodness
>Why are you all so fucking adamant on being to focus point?
What? All I did was make one post, how can that be "adamant"?
If you're going to have Canadians and Brits in Normandy you should have Americans as well. They often fought together.
I love playing AT, especially on maps with APCs. I remember popping off a shot at a pixel sized halftrack. I originally thought I missed, but it rolled forward to a stop. Then the message pops up saying I killed the driver from 400m away. Felt so good man.
not at all, it's centered around the Canadian and British campaign, very few Americans would be involved in that since they had their own problems.
concerning "adamant", I was more talking about all the people obsessed with having America, I know one clan from DH refused to consider playing it because there was no American faction. Not an attack at you particularly.
There is no reason to create an American faction in the game.
I dunno, its finicky and strange. I mean Arma doesn't have it at all but it makes up for it in other ways.
Just pm'd a friend who plays ro2 and he said its extremely map dependent, some walls you can some you can't and its a toss up.

Yea, I can for sure agree with you on that point. It's incredibly finnicky.
Some cover is easily penetrable, while other cover should be penetrable but isn't
All I know is that corrugated metal can be shot through by anything and stationary MGs punch through normal walls.
Oh okay, I understand now. It does make sense for it to be Canucks and Brits then
They really haven't been big in a WWII game since CoD 3 if I recall. This should be fun.

It's still alive, they don't post updates much because they only like to show finished parts.

Wait these are the older ones from Ost
I doubly fucked up. Oh well, better go commit sudoku now
It was a shitty clip fed gun
But a shitty clip fed gun is better then a shitty bolt action gun. They had prototype M1's that took BAR mags..

Necro'd, but Banzai is such a great feature
What people don't know is that Russians have a similar feature. You just need 5 guys charging together, they'll shout "URAAAH" and other stuff so you know its working.
Germans do too. You just need to kill a guy and then charge.
Americans have nothing but technology to save them.
then they should add the MG-42
also, you know what's funny? i've been killed more times as German by the MG-34 that some Russian high level players have as captured than by actual Germans while playing as Russians. Captured weapons are just bullshit.

too bad most players are free weekenders that only have springfields and rarely get to pick up other guns
should have given them the M1 carbine, which also sucks but in a different way.
No, the main problem with RO2/RS is that hardly any of the players are limited to standard rifleman roles anymore like in the first. It really ruins the atmosphere having everyone specialized.
Yea, I suppose
Springfield isn't bad though. It's fairly similar to the other bolt actions.
M1 Carbine only sucks if you're using it as a fullpowered rifle. If you're assaulting and you need semiautomatic accurate fire at a medium distance the gun is golden
the game does require the specialists more often though, since the effects one can have in the battlefield is far more exaggerated.
in ROOST, you were encouraged to make effective use of them, in RO2, you will fail if you don't.
>Babbies talking about RO1
You are reviled by the veterans of BF1942 and the Forgotten Hope mod! Weep with sorrow that you never got the chance to play this game during its height!
Eh, I was more into the more realistic unit composition. Something about having more than half your team all equipped with nothing but their rifles and a couple grenades at the most was really nice.
Now I think even if you're forced into a regular rifleman slot (not often) you have a pistol and everything.
I will take a hit in the realism department for the sake of having combined arms operations and a wider range of toys.

largely up to the server, RO sucked ass the same way in the months before RO2 when it was surging with new people.
if you wanna see teamwork, find people who are playing properly and help them until it comes the moment for them to help you.
Yeah that's what makes RO2 blow by comparison unless you're playing with a certain group of people. RO1's system forced people to play their roles right because if you didn't you didn't get epic sick frags anyway.
>if you wanna see teamwork, find people who are playing properly and help them until it comes the moment for them to help you.
Sometimes it works out that way really well. And that's what keeps bringing me back to play.
Doesn't /k/ have a steamgroup too?
except in Stalingrad Kessel or Danzig or Zhitomir... etcetera.
the problem is that the lowest common denominator squeals like they're being murdered whenever they get taken out of their cramped infantry maps. And even up until recently, every goddamn RO2 map was precisely that('Heroes of Stalingrad' and all), so they don't have the habit nor the patience to learn a kind of game where they are jogging and manouvering through terrain more often than humping cover and taking potshots across a yard.
the fatal deficiencies in the vehicle department also contributed in it's way.

Unrelated to RO2 or RS, but is there a vidya game where the guns are incredibly realistic, like retardedly on point firearm mechanics?
I've played receiver and that was a neat little step in the right direction but there isn't much meat on that one.
It is a damn shame that the devs killed realism in RO2. It was kickass in RO1 and DH. I remember fighting against the 2.SS in a TOC campaign. Those fuckers would create a historically accurate convoy before heading out of their spawn to attack objectives. It was a different time, I guess.
http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=92324 You have to try this mod. Adds awesome sounds and new content like SS uniforms and new guns for both factions. Arty and nades have shrapnel too, you actually walk up stairs slower too(and other rough terrain). German bundle gernades are p fun too(there are a lot of new nades). It's still WIP so you can only play it on certain unranked servers, you can also join their official group on steam for events. Also next update has more nades and ponchos for Germans and Russians; also detachable bayonets.
RO2 sold out to balancing, so that black people and kids can get kills too.

>RO2 funnels you into linear kill zones and balances 'camping' zones so you have nowhere to hide, can't use tactics to move up if your team can't aim, even if you're killing at a constant rate
Oh, man absolutely this. I swear that every single map is just holding choke points and just outright rushing out in the open hoping not to get shot.
Does this game often get put up on Steam sales?
I'm one of the dumbasses who missed it during the free Wednesday and I'm thinking of buying it. Preferably during the summer sales coming up.
I can't recall seeing it during a sale, but I know I've always confused it with CoH for some reason. Wasn't until I started lurking /k/ that I found out how glorious this game is. Had no idea it was made by the Tripwire.
>mfw I saw the free weekend on Sunday
I can remember when DH had loads of people on it and it was a bitch to get on any server (29th, Jolly Rodgers, etc) but now you're lucky to find just half a server at the peak hours.
RO2's only good for mindless gaming. RO1/DH gave me a lot of good memories while RO2 only makes me think of some tacticool bullshitter from COD being a massive faggot fucking up team cohesion.
I want a game where I can massacre polish civilians and burn their homes to the ground enough of this playing as the fucking good guys I want to get my war crimes on.
I want a game where the more polish civilians you murder the more powerups you gain until you are some kind of superhuman nazi ubermensch that can take hundreds of rounds of machine guns and regenerate like the hulk or wolverine.
Man, Rising Storm pissed me off for like a week

If you want to grind the worst gun in the game, know that there's nothing on the other end of the tunnel
No, but I was really interested in finding out what was in store for the type 14. As google searches yielded no results, the next logical step was to do it myself. I would rather keep others from doing what I did, though, and just tell them that it's not worthwhile

I played a Civ 3 mod of the eastern front as Germany where you could build literal concentration camps that improved production. It was one of the greatest gaming experiences I have ever had in over 20 years of gaming.
I didn't play ro1 but what is the problem with choke-points?
Choke-points happen in real life. So you can claim unrealism. They require good placement for defenders and good room clearing for the attackers.
There is a reason people like apartments so much. You can actually hold a line with few people unlike shit like arad where some dufus in and ivan speeder can just rush to the other end of the map without people noticing him
The difference is in execution of choke points between RO1&2. Ostfront was a lot less rigid in its controls, played more like a traditional FPS and maps were bigger/more open so holding a chokepoint was less about finding a camping spot and taking potshots and more about finding a good position and having the right guy with the right gun in it, and even then, a lot of maps had chokepoints that could simply be bypassed.
Darkest Hour (not RO because it had the same players on just 2 servers who were too good) was superior because the balancing of maps and weapon sway prevented CSS type lasergunning. It's not even a case of gitgud, I came first nearly all the time, now I figured out an abusable idiosyncrasy I always get top kills. It's not realistic to kill 150 people in half an hour at 200m distance with a bolt action. Make that 250 with the glitch.
There's something fucked up in the ballistics, no eye relief or settle time, you can just instantly hit anything you point at, it's basically COD with free-aim.
The ballistic simulation is arma 3 is REELY FUCKING NEET.
Theres some script that makes the bullets leave a trail and you get to see their velocity and all that silly shit after passing through people and cover and all that. It's great.
I'm fifteen this will probably get me banned, but not all underage users are like this. I like to be a team player,keep comms on topic and I usually am pretty high on the leaderboards.
Don't generalize please, y'all were 15 to, I'm sure you didn't act like that little faggot.
Don't listen to this guy young one, we're a group of perfectly normal people.
pls /k/ let me keep him, we can train him into a super-Kanadian

Never played it again.

I want to play, but I have never experienced or even seen any of the shit posted here. My experiences have been negative so far.
Anyone ever play Resistance and Liberation?
Shit was pretty cool yo.
>insurgents vs. security forces
>number of game modes, none of which are "deathmatch"
>moderate tactical ability required to be effective
>no crosshairs and minimal hud
>lethal-as-fuck weapons means charging headlong into enemies a la CoD is suicide
I did. It was pretty fun, a very good looking game, well made maps, but none of the servers that were populated were below 200 ping. That's not necessarily the games fault, but it does make it nearly unplayable. Latency aside, I don't feel like the Source engine lends itself well to a realistic military shooter.
Plus, every single fucking game there was stupid fucking kids screaming like their favorite youtuber. I'm not looking for a super serious crowd, but jesus christ, I'm not even exaggerating when I say every single match without exception there was at least one or two stupid kids screaming like maniacs over their mics.
the server difference is a silly myth.
i'm neither American nor European, the closest country that plays in large numbers to mine is fucking Brazil, i've played at every possible different hour of the day(one day i woke up at 7AM and found nothing better to do), and the servers i frequent are either always full or only have five slots free at most, and they always have at least five guys passing info and trying to coordinate.
and for what is worth, in average, American players are better than Europeans, i don't know what the fuck is the problem with Europeans but the more they bitch about kids and Amerifats the more likely it is that when you actually get on and check for yourself they are the screeching, nasal faggots that cannot fucking play like human beings.
i was playing ro1 once
as a german i was a panzerschreck guy, playing with a fiend
we lost all points by 1 hour left and 15 minutes later there were no reinforcements either
we held off at the last point, took 30% reinforcements from american team to deplete them AND in the last minute actually threw them off the bridge and charged forward
there were maybe ten of us left by the time the map ended
i just say in the windows and took down tanks from the other end of the river, i had to take down like 8 or 12 altogether
eventually my friend died while fetching me ammo, so i had to go myself
it was the greatest battle i have ever participated in and also the most intense
we thought we would lose but we won after holding out for 45 minutes with no reinforcements and mounted some pitiful counter attack
shit was cash, i wish someone made a video
