Celeon you cheapskate, you've been saying that for months.

I cant recommend this game highly enough. For all the realism buffs, this game is for you, its not like usual FPS shooters, and the tank battles are great.

The game only costs approx 30 Euro, its the cheapest game ive ever bought that i got so much use out of.

No problem Peter, ask away. My ingame name is Conor[TT]. The [TT] stands for "team tanker" meaning that you are willing to work cooperatively with other people and share a tank, you will probably see that tag around quite a bit.

I ususally play Tank maps, ever since Orel came out i havent played much else. Orel is a custom made Tank map that blew everything produced previously out of the water. Tank maps before this took about 2 Mins to drive across, and there was so much close quarter action that you would be lucky to last that long.

Orel takes almost a full TEN minutes to drive across, with huge hills, big open plains, its a tankers delight.

I honestly dont know the server names i usually play on Peter, but I know the maps are usually Orel or Orel 88 vs 76.

- The trailer in hi-res

- 3 wallpapers for the desktop

- And the Red orchestra SDK (Software,Development,Kit) which contains the Level Editor and all necessary stuff to mod the game



I have a little problem. Somehow i cant reach the Red Orchestra main server.

Haha, I was playing with you yesturday, Fritz. We shared a few tanks together on Black Day in July.

I remember being in a tiger on that map yesturday with another guy. We got hit 17 times from soviet tanks, without getting damaged. They had to call in an artillery strike finally to take us out.

It still needs alot of additional tweaks http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

for example :


- tracer rounds are flying a slight bit too slow to look realistic.

- the mg42 is much too inaccurate even when you fire very short bursts only while the russian mg is wwwwwwaaaaaayyyyyy too accurate for a weapon with its recoil.

- the ballistic physics are good but not good enough ! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

I personally like to aim for the lower front hull. Right where it comes to a point. According to the diagrams, the T34 carries it's ammo at that spot. Sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll take 'em out with one shot.

Talking of the diagrams, those are pretty nice. I wish they had given those to me in my copy. But they dont include those in the US version. I had to go online and look for those.

Been reading the comments here and I am intrigued by this game, it's currently very cheap with Amazon at the moment and I'm tempted to buy it.

I have played MOH and COD, but I understand this game is very realistic, is there much of a learning curve involved with this game and is it purely multiplayer only? And is there any opportunity to learn this game before letting myself loose on multiplayer?

cod/cod2 is nothing compared to RO. the realism is so intense that there is no crosshairs , realistic bullet and shell ballistics and guess wat the panzerfaustes dont go in a straight line in the game u can set it to 30,60,90 meters and more u set it the highe angle the PF will be raised, sniper rifle ballistics are realistic. usually alot of people stay solo. but for tank combat if you want a fully operated tank to be effiecient and effective then a clan is recommmended.

Thats a point where i would like even more realism.

Things which are missing in RO :

- You dont need to adjust your sights

- The weapons know no jamming

- There is no wind modelled in the game


With these things added, it would become a real challenge to hit something just like in reality but i guess the UT2004 game engine is not capable of simulating wind for example. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Did that scare the **** out of me! I spent much of the time behind some wet stone wall with medium artillery rounds going off all around, and every once in awhile this German spotter plane would fly overhead. The German squads would come at you in threes and fours. Half the time you couldn't see where the rounds were coming from that bounced off the wall near your head. Most of my squad was behind me firing from the ruins of a Church. I eventually ran out of ammunition and was killed when I attempted to get back to them. And the sound! My wife had me shut off the 5:1 system and go to headphones. She said the nieghbors were going to complain at what was going out the windows!
