I dont want Rising Storm..
I just bought a retail version of Red Orchestra 2 and i want to start playing it.. The problem is another game, Rising Storm is everywhere i turn, its in the middle of the server lists, the splash screen says the game is Rising Storm, theres an AD to buy rising storm on my starup screen, theres japanese ♥♥♥♥ing music
I have a hard time finding the game i actually bought. What the hell is up with that?? Im probably going to Uninstall this game and break the disc in two if i cant find a way to avoid it. I didnt buy RO2 to get drowned in dis-abilitating commercials for some japanese theme war game i have no interest in.. Is there something wrong with my game? Do i have to do something special to get rid of it? Some help here please...

the games have been linked together since RS came out.
use the server filter, on the servers screen. set it to exclude pacific theater. that will then show only server running ro2 maps at the time. they can still cjage to a pacific theater map after the ro2 map is over though. if you search the server list, you can find servers that play ro2 maps only.
too bad you didn't come here before buying. we would have told you to buy RS. you then would have access to all RS content and all RO2 content.

It is the sad reality that for some reson the developers of red orchestra decided to completely ditch it commercialy and go with rising storm.There are some servers you can play on that only have red orchestra 2 maps .These servers will have RO2 maps only tag in the name so be on the look out for them.Just find these servers fav them and then everytime you launch them game leave the tittle screen as quick as you can go to servers and join one of the formentioned servers and never worry about rising storm again.

Highlighting this to help people get the point, though people will no doubt still complain.

And they still haven't added any GUI switch options despite people asking for them before. This is why they should add it in.

what, exactly, do you have in mind?

Just add an option, to let people revert back to the old RO2 GUI, as in the menu, splash screen, exe icon and everything else. Just an option. RS players won't be bothered by it as it's just an option.

Another game, Company of Heroes 2 had a Western Front expansion recently despite it being originally Eastern Front. But it let you choose the GUI and the music played. Depending on what army you selected in the menu.

So why not add this in? People have been asking for it for a long time but Tripwire doesn't seem to care.

gotcha. yeah, i'd switch back and forth once in a while. still rather have them workng on content for the actual gameplay though. it's not like i sit and listen to the music and watch the screen change in the menu. so it would be nice, but pretty far down on my list of things to do.

I don't really think this is going to take much effort to do. Since they already have the GUI files.

if it's that easy, must be last on their list then.

Well, what I mean is that, if it's that easy they could have dished it out fairly quickly.

TBH the GUI and music thing has been annoying me for a long time now. A lot of other RO2-only players want it too. So I really don't see why Tripwire's holding back on putting this out.

They tried to appease the RO2 only players by adding the old RO2 main menu music back in. But I find it a total mess as it's contrasted by the Pacific Theater menu.

agreed. that's why i beleive it's dead last on things they wish to do.

Well, I just hope they add it in the next patch.

Highly unlikely. It's only ever been like 3 or 4 people asking this and not ver persistently on their forums. I'm sure if there were much more support for the idea, they would maybe at least consider it. But I doubt it's even something they are considering.

It's not 3-4 people. There's more than that, and it's ever since RS came out. Just that the voices have died down since there's no one persistently throwing it out on the forums. But that doesn't mean people don't want it.

But still this should be quite logical. Just look at what Relic did with the Western Front expansion for COH2.
