WTF?!? It won't start for me! It keeps giving me errors! I DL it and installed it correctly, but it keeps giving me either runtime errors or it can't find RedOrchestra.intro or something like that! Can anyone help? I've been searching on the net but can't find anything to fix my problem. I also found a solution that WOULD help (maybe), but I can't find the ini file for the game. It's not in there!

Never mind, got it to work by re-downloading it and now I'm gonna un-install it.***NOTE*** This is JUST AN OPINION SO PLEASE DON'T FLAME ME. Also, I haven't tried the retail version so this rant/opinion piece is ONLY FOR THE MOD***/NOTE*** It's not realistic at all. Your character can't run 10 feet without running out of breath, it feels like you're sliding on ice all the time, there's no way to reload any MG, the weapon sway is set to high, your allies LOVE to run you and other allies over whenever they get inside a tank, the AI barely shoots and when they do it's always from the hip so their shots go wild all the time and the controls are near impossible to learn. If anyone wants to get a realistic WWII shooter, don't go for this mod, instead get Battlefield 2 and download the Forgotten Hope 2 mod.

To Foxer89,

Thank you man! I wanted to get the older version (free). I knew about RO way before but I never got the chance to try the game. Now I have the chance. BTW (By the way), how do you get in the vehicles? Which key/button do you press!
