  1. Hey there folks, i just rented a server from Host Havoc, and im having issues with the server recognizing me as an admin.

    I've put our steam Id's in the Admins.cfg file but when i log into the server and try any admin commands, it says invalid access to commands. 

    Is there a step or setting i'm missing? it seems pretty straight forward, yet im posting here for help.

    Thanks for any insight you can provide, cheers.

  2. From what i've read, the i5 3570k didn't offer much more performance Processing wise, it offered a boost to graphical calculations, but with a graphics card it would be pointless. I recommend the I7 if you decide to go that route, and 16gb of new ram, not just another 8gb stick of what you got, they likely   wont work well together. My overall recommendation is to do some research on what you would like to upgrade to next, and save for that. when i built my current rig i wanted to make sure i could upgrade it in the future a few times, so it had a longer lifespan.



  3. I'd definitely upgrade the CPU first and foremost, that is a major bottleneck of performance. Then Double the RAM. But there is still no guarantee that will be the solution, Ideally, a new Mobo(DDR4, and a socket that supports an i7(Or go with a new Ryzen setup)), new cpu and new ram with an SSD is what you should be saving up for.

    whats the highest tier i5 thats compatible with your current mobo? that might be sufficient, along with 16gb of ram.

    Same problem.

    Before the update was able to play very high graphics settings, but now i can't play because i have very massive fps lags. 

    GTX 1050Ti(4gb)

    I3 8300

    Kingston DIMM 8GB 2400mhz RAM

    You Actually played on High settings with that setup? i'm surprised honestly, the Minimum Processor is an i5, while I do get that an i3 8300 should be fairly powerful.


    To be honest I think everyone here is lacking either a minimum requirement or Vram, or ram in general, like an FX 6300 is far too low even for the listed minimum(FX 8320). Can't say about OP he just listed how much ram he has, not too helpful.


    I honestly think the minimum/ recommended requirements list is utter BS and always has been, there is no way people running the exact minimum requirements can play this game, impossible.


    I built a PC just for squad,

    I7 8700K 4ghz

    16 gigs of ddr5 ram

    gtx 1080sc


    And I still have the occasional match with poor performance.


    That being said "It's an Alpha" when it hits Beta is when we'll see major improvements to optimizations for older setups, it's not priority ATM.

    All the stuff I'm talking about is how modern FCSes work. Older stuff like the M60A3 or the T72A is much, much more complicated to use. The M60A3 in particular does need to have gun stabilization enabled and disabled on the fly, and the gunner is responsible for enabling/disabling cant compensation when the AFV is in motion.

    Yea, I think that realistic concepts, potentially not period accurate stuff, should be used to hinder use(to make sure that in-game, you'd better have some skill), instead of being automatic. turret stabilization on modern vehicles, should still be automatic, IMO.

    And it's not like infantry can't fight back against tanks, give some of them Javelins and RPG-29s and the meta will work itself out. Lots of TDs like TOW Humvees, BRDM Spandrels, Shturm MTLBs, Stryker MGVs, etc... and the ability for things like artillery on call to disable the GPS/CITV/tracks/etc can easily make a realistic mechanic balanced. 

    They were estimated at 1.5 klicks away. But we don't have Javelins(Redacted). they really can be hard to kill completely. when they're more than a kilometer away, sometimes you cry. a lot.

    We sent waves of people to them. got a hill? you win, unfortunately.

    The whole point of tanks is that they dominate against infantry in the open. They should be something to be feared from long distance if you don't have air support or indirect fire or TOWs that can suppress them.

    Yea, I can attest, this is exactly how tanks have been in the v12 games I've got to see them in, you cant even see them and they're annihilating multiple squads, and their support vehicles in minutes. (unless they happen to drive into the massive craters and get stuck xD)

    Even if you learn how to operate a modern FCS I'm willing to bet 90% of the player base jumping into a tank won't have a good handle on gunnery techniques to actually achieve the 90%+ first round hit rates that western tank crews get. You need to know how to achieve a steady track, know when to dump lead, know how to ensure your FCS round selection is accurate, know what return to select when the LRF returns multiple distances, etc... 

    Well since Modern FCS's are much more simple to operate than they were, since they are digital, i'd say that would simply make tanks too deadly, in the sense that we might as well not have infantry, might as well just be a tank fighting sim. From my interpretation, you mean the stabilization shouldn't be manual(I agree, when would you want it off?) But also that its essentially point and shoot on the move. I disagree, the game isn't realism simulator 2019, we have to consider making it actually fun to play for people not in a tank.

    Armored warfare should be more about strategic positioning and maneuvering than how well you can guess the firing solution.

    I think it deserves a skill curve with communication, strategic positioning, maneuvering, AND getting a fire solution with what is provided to you, you can laze the target and adjust fire, maybe 3 shots before you make a connection, with an inexperienced gunner, that's already deadly AF. The first shot is guessing, the second and third is Doping, (Data on previous engagement) Which will improve if your willing to spend an hour at the range and actually learn what you're doing. Also it helps to have a Commander in seat to delegate high value targets, almost immediately, and it works.

    Real tanks will deflect sabot to the mantlet all day long if they get to hull-down.

    No, no they will not. NO tank can survive a constant Sabot barrage anywhere on the body, That round is purely designed to turn any material into fiery dust, Stabdard design AT rounds, which a lot of tanks still have available? sure, yes. I'd like to see your sources on any material known to man even diamond that can withstand even 7, Tungsten or Depleted Uranium rounds directly. (Pro tip, even armor made from Depleted uranium or Tungsten will fail after a couple). But i am excited to learn about this material, as it would allow us to travel very quickly through space without worry.

    Based on the physics alone.

  7. Thanks for pointing this out, i rented it immediately, and loved it, I think the only person missing was Will smith, which is a bummer, but i still thought it was great, I don't know what people who thought it was bad wanted out of it, what did you expect exactly? 

    Glad to see it!

  8. You're correct, I cant find the euro servers anymore, just one Chinese server, and the test server for Troopers.

    Have you tried playing with the video settings? Do you have Fully Load Textures set to on? that might be giving you issues.

    HUGE FPS drops on Jensen, almost constant thus unplayable for me ; not able to test on servers as none appear in the server list.

    Did you clear the game cache? what settings are you running/ system specs? I can only find euro servers in the custom servers list.

  10. Well, with anything in EA, improvements to performance is an on-going problem, not to mention the engine the game is developing on, is in itself going through changes constantly. People seem to think that just because OWI is a smaller Indy studio, the game should look and run like PR BF2 from V1. Its a new engine, if you try to run it on a toaster, then its not really OWI's fault if it isn't playable. They need time to finish the full scope of features, then they can polish for performance, with expansions to the maps being worked on and all the new content set to be put in game, it doesn't make sense to stop everything you're doing to polish it up as if its ready to release tomorrow, to just have to start that process over again with new content coming in. also it seems most people aren't having issues with it.


    My advice? plan to upgrade your PC, you'll probably need to anyway, and just wait for full release.


    I built a brand new PC just to play squad, so for me, it runs great.

  11. So earlier on the new map, an enemy t72 drove blindly into a massive crater and got stuck, hilarious, but we discovered when a crewman got out of the tank and laid down on top, he was invincible, we couldnt shoot him, but he was mowing us down, kinda funny.

  12. To start, what are your system specs? 

    Okay doing some quick research:

    • Due to an error that may lead to losing data, the rtworkq.dll file is inaccessible or damaged. Try reinstalling the application.(In this case that's Win10 and obviously isn't ideal)
    • Your antivirus software may have blocked the rtworkq.dll file's access. Check the files quarantined by the antivirus software.
    • The Windows registry’s database is damaged. With the help of Windows System Restore, you can return to a previous state with system settings that still work.

    Looks like the .dll or other .dll's that are loaded with this file are somehow corrupt, maybe due to a virus or malware, or maybe a hardware failure, like the HDD/SSD is having corruption issues, as well as any anti-virus software could be having issues with it.

    this is suggested as a best first step;

    To solve the rtworkq.dll file's problems, check if the system files are intact as a first step.

    System File Checker (SFC.exe) is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash.

    To scan all system files, open a command prompt as an administrator and type:

    sfc /scannow

    This command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder at System32\dllcache.


    Let me know if this gets you any closer to fixing the issue, It is not likely due to Squad Itself.


    Cheers, best of luck friend.

    Ill try to remember that. I have around 5-6 months left till i graduate. then i get to move onto MEPS during june after i turn 18. I come from a muslim family tho, I just wont tell em that part, thats like throwing a bomb and gasoline into a fire and expecting nothing to happen :P

    Don't be silly, religions plays little part in shaping a marine, let alone any of our brothers in arms. No one hates you or thinks lesser of you for it. its your character and who you become that matters. You'll do fine I think. 


    -Sorry off-topic

    activity ingame in no way relates to activity on the forums. 

    totally agreed. I did not mean you were an instigator of such actions. Its just sad to see when new players get picked on and driven away from the game when they're genuinely trying to learn.

    Completely Agreed, like I said and polo mentioned, there are TONS of factors on why a SL gets sh**ty. a lot of it is because their skills are being reflected in your actions. to me? no reason to sh*t on anyone but myself for not trying to wrangling the newbies in my squad. For them? maybe they just got this and are amazing 360 kno skope CODrazors and cant figure out why theyre not wining the match by themselves. its up to us as a community(both you and I equally) to change this. In game I find is best. F*&6 'em, play alone then. thats my attitude. 

    Good luck with boot my son, remember nothing is personal, they want you to be the best f$%king marine ever made to date, thats it ;)

    This is a game, not the marine corps. stop treating it like it is. theres a difference between being hard on squad mates to get shit done and just cussing someone out and treating them like scum cause they dont understand what something does.

    You are correct, and while this is a game(I never treated it like it was the Marine Corps, because I'm not sad enough to pretend to be one), it's played by real-life people(who should be Adults given the maturity level requiered)... I don't have to sugar coat anything because I don't play on Disney's servers. again, if someones just cussing you out and being a d*** without any constructive feedback and knowledge, you are correct to call them out, If there is a surge of people doing this, dare I say they are the same people who came into the game with you on the free weekend? And not once did I condone this behavour you're complaining againts. i'd in fact be more than happy to back you up in game over it. I love when new players come on and are willing to learn, its just that a lot of people dont listen while trying to learn, and that can frusterate anyone. the short answer is, If you have a problem with your squad lead. leave the squad. he wont have much reason to pick the SL if no one will play with him.

  16. ;(

    I dont believe there is going to be a "rank" system of any kind.

    That being said, yea i can totally see why not taking the time to talk to and walk-through new players into someone a little more knowlegable about the game mechanics themselves could be frustrating... however some people just want to watch the world COD....

    1) Please put a few more hours in the game until you think you're ready to lead a squad

    2) Play at least 5 full games as one of the squad leaders on a full 72-slot server

    3) Report back and tell us how it went



    I agree with Besscobar.




    I believe he is talking about the screaming and cussing at new players. it doesnt get anyone anywhere, makes the community more toxic and is overall a determent. no one learns a thing when they're getting ****ing butchered for a noob mistake because they're new at the game. it wont change, but it sure as hell is annoying.

    I hope the user name isn't reflective of your ambitions... As you may not like how MOST marines will speak to you... forever....
