  2. Rate My New PC

    Thanks man! Yea I plan on putting the installer on a flash drive then getting a key when I build it from a site for the low like you said.
  3. Rate My New PC

    This was one of the first games I got all pumped about playing with it. I am sure it will look like a beautiful new game! Thanks man.
  4. VOIP= Unplayable

    So basically when the game launched I had no issue, was running and gunning and having the time of my life. Towards the end of my binge session I found that Squad Leader Coms was causing my game to lag. Going from 40-50fps to about 2-6. Naturally I lowed my Graphics from High and Medium to straight up Low. Had no issues on a couple servers. Then today low and behold it is back and pretty much on every server I join. I have been toying around with different Population, Maps and Locations only to find not much of a difference. I understand people have been claiming it has to do with AMD but out of all of my buddies, 3 of them who have AMD CPUs do not have this issue. Granted they have the same chip in the FX8350 and I have the FX9370. I do not know much about the architect and what not but this seems very odd. Again, it only started creeping up during the later hours on launch day and today for my first couple of matches. Overall I am super pleased with this game and even bought a copy for my friend for an early Xmas gift. It just has gotten to the point where my anger and rage overcomes my sensible thinking due to this lag. I wouldn't mind if it was small but literally anytime someone ques up to say something it is just unplayable. Specs. CPU- AMD FX9370 GPU- MSI GTX660 OS- Windows 10 MoBo- Crosshair V Formula-Z If you must delete this thread do to duplicate. This game is awesome and I cant begin to explain how happy I am that it is gaining the traction it deserves in this space. I just hope this gets resolved sooner than later.
  5. New & In need of tips/advice

    Honestly there is a decent thread for newer type of players. Also always do a nice little mic check when joining a squad. You will do fine and have fun if you stay with your squad and kick some ass. Best of luck and WELCOME to SQUAD.
  6. Squad Leads complaining about not spreading out.

    Distance is your friend though!
  7. Graphics: Fullscreen vs Borderless

    All in all every game you should always toy around with your PC. That is the beauty of the PC, tweak settings, config files, launch parameters and things of that nature. You can always make the game run a lot if not just a little better than you think you can. Give it a shot, watch your FPS and see what is affecting what.
  8. lag spikes

    Glad you got it sorted out! This community is growing in an awesome way. This game forces people to adapt or get out! Nothing better than that. Learning curve and squad tactics! Pure love.
  9. Transport role and artillery/mortars

    Dude mortar class would be awesome. The hand held 60 would be great. Trigger fire so you could line up with your bubble. The explosions in this game are so much fun, I could only imagine bringing the rain on a Hilltop Fob while defending a flag! I want Mortars and I want them NOWWWWW hahaha
  10. Game wont run

    What do you mean by freezing? Is the game freezing *hanging up*? Is the whole computer freezing forcing you to turn it off? Can you get to task manager with CTL+ALT+DLT. If you can get in the game, what are your settings at? This could be a lot of things and all info no matter how small could be used to help.
  11. Sound ??? Direction

    Yes i agree with this, but last night myself and my buddies did the usual hunt for a guy that was def danger close, and 10 minutes of searching and couldnt find him in an open hill top. People would die, we would see them drop and hear the shot and go back hunting...never did find him. There might be a bug that people are not finding because not everyone thinks like us and enjoys a good hunt. Personally anytime I hear the SVD and its close, its on!
  12. Iron Sights - They Don't Work As Intended

    All right man, if the gun is ranged for 300m and you make your sight picture center mass and pull the trigger on a 50m target guess what...Your doing it wrong. In real life you would have to aim at the base of that target to get a center mass hit. Your not zeroed lol I dont think we know what the weapons are "Zeroed" at. Its a game, so you will be using your "Kentucky Windage" all the time.
  13. Spot targets easier by moving your field of vision all the way to the left....and change resolution scale to 120%. Honestly in real life a 245m shot a lot of people can not make w/ Iron sights. 300m and an Iron sight shot is so crazy, I mean it can be done, but it is so tiny and you have to have all of your fundamentals down point. Not to mention its only made while laying down mostly in a prone supported position. An unsupported and or kneeling and standing at 300m Iron sights for the average person is crazy. In my personal opinion, I truly love the way distance is scaled in this game. Party type of system and what not I can understand, it is a pain to get a group of players in without owning your own server. Agree on the scope distance scaling in full reason. The switching between weapons.grenades. and so on does need a bit of an overhaul, even more so for the transition OP talked about. m203 should be a much faster transition. The dragging bodies to cover to revive and things of that nature are awesome. All in all the devs still have their vision, all of that ArmA movement and abilities you talk about would be pretty cool but I am not sure thats what the Devs want. Its more Squad Tactics vs Mil Sim IMHO. Some of these issues are already being evaluated and looked at so my faith is still very high for a game that already pretty much stole my "gaming time".
  14. timed out and high ping

    Do you run the game through steam. I think someone said that it has to do with the steam query or something. They said right the complaint to steam. I dont know the exact response but I remember seeing it this morning. People are getting dropped after like 20 mins of play, and they posted the logs. This could possibly be your issue. Im pretty sure the pings do reflect the real ping now so my question is, Are you playing on far away servers? Local locations? Full servers? Do you have good internet? You can have the best rig ever and no net and have a rough time gaming. In truth I am hoping you tell me you got it through steam access. Hope this helps a little bit and hope someone can confirm the steam timeout issue.
  15. Sound ??? Direction

    **Tried to edit and it created a new post -_-**
  16. Sound ??? Direction

    Honestly, the Right/Left is normal for myself, but I use surround. I think the sounds are fine.... Now to your next point about not knowing where and not being able to see. In real life contact situations, even more so in Afghanistan and the mountain ranges the have there...Usually more than not, Soldiers and Troops can not see where the shots are coming from. You do have a bit of a 6th sense that comes into play and sometimes you can feel the air move around you while bullets are flying....Most of the time in contact you just yell out a distance and direction and shoot that way. Basically most firefights are shooting at mountains and people you cant even see. "Shoot over there, Now shoot over at that rock formation" Its pure chaos in real life, and this game does a good job of making that crazy feeling.
  17. Slow Animations

    If you use the mouse wheel to scroll to your next weapon, bandage, grenade or what ever it may be. Most of the time when you left off the wheel it will go to the thing above or below what you stopped on. Its like a bad prize machine in an arcade. You know you got the timing right, you know you stopped on the light, yet it still screws you and moves it over one so you dont win all the tickets. Atleast that is what it does for me and my buddies. Its become pretty annoying to have to come up off of WASD or just to use the number line above the keyboard....
  18. Squad development scheme.

    Hijacked for sure lol
  19. Squad development scheme.

    Personally this is the only game I am playing right now. Even alone, in a squad of pure chaos I still manage to have a good time. Some of my other friends cant stand the thought of joining random squads. I seem to be on the other spectrum of that thought and feel that is the beauty of this game. Dying star is a crazy assumption off of it being so new and still very early on steam release. The devs are doing a good job. Got a decent patch out on xmas eve! Right now the population gauge and dying star comment imhop, are un founded because there are still plenty of players who took a step back and/or did not buy the game due to some issues. Once these things get sorted out along with other additions that are sure to be coming, who knows. I do agree with the volume focus, if that is even happening, and at the same time would not fault it. It is about money like anything else, but SO FAR there seems to be confidant devs and a great growing community. Personally I always viewed this as something that will take a good time to come to full scope. There are going to be a lot of variables like with any game. Player base, the average stay gamer vs hardcore non stop gamer. At the end though, this game is about squad work, tough tactics and crazy gunfight situations. One well organized squad alone can do some rough damage. This games communitee in the long run may have more hardcore gamers than the casual types. I feel there are decent amount of servers and more servers fully populated. Most servers fill up very fast, even the newer ones. The player base is pretty strong for what this game is. I do not know the official numbers and all of that jazz but I would bet they are still selling decent copies.
  20. Graphics: Fullscreen vs Borderless

    Your FPS performance wise will be game to game when it comes to windowed borderless vs Fullscreen. Are you running two monitors because some people who do run multiple monitors use borderless so that the game doesnt close on main monitor when they want to click something on another monitor. Frames in windowed borederless due to your computer having basically a form of Vsync **forced 3x buffering**on just to operate in that mode. Basically its locked to your monitors refresh rate. If you are maxing out your video card this mode will most likely stink. Fullscreen is pretty much dedicating your PC to the game and letting it run out with no buffer. All possible performance loss imho is going to be related to the build of your PC when switching from Fullscreen to Windowed Borderless. This is not Counter Strike so I personally run my monitors on their native resolution. For this game, even running multiple monitors I do play on fullscreen for my simple belief that its running smoother :)
  21. I had the same issue that you did! There actually seems to be a bunch of little fixes that work for some, but do not for others. So here is the deal, before troubleshooting you need to turn off ALL external applications that are not squad. Even if your game WORKS fine with spotify or Team Speak and other things ON, turn it off while you troubleshoot. Obviously like you have stated, you turned off your radio filter in game. Next would be to change your maxchannel settings in the config folder and Or .INI. I will be linking a thread from a week ago with a couple of options for you to take. Mind you I had the same crippling lag due to VOIP. My issue was that I was in Stereo with my 7.1 Surround headphones in, AKA G430s. Initially I thought I that I was in Dolby Digital Surround, so I went into Logitech Gaming Software program with the hopes to default to Stereo. There is where I found that I actually didnt have 7.1 turned on. Once I turned it ON, boom problem has been gone and never came back. The truth is we havent been able to find the target spot for this bug other than its an Audio issue from AMD, that might also be caused by Unreal Engine. The more info and fixes we get on recorded the better the Devs can target and lock this issue down. Some people cant be in Stereo, Some cant be in 5.1 or 7.1. Other cant have TS open at all. Hope this thread helps you man, and best of luck. Please continue to post with your findings and results. http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/8389-voip-unplayable/
  22. How can I turn the ADS function from toggle to hold?

    Its under the Settings, Controls. Its legit called Toggle ADS and Toggle Crouch. Hope this helps!
  23. disabling shadows

    Again, do you get angry at someone who has better internet than you....? Do you get angry when someone has a better graphics card than you? Your sight wherever you want would not work anyways because you have to reset for your sights to come back down. You would be inaccurate and lose more fights than you think. I am seeing things I am not meant to see? Again, go look up what BenQ black equalizer is and before making a fool of yourself, actually understand what it is you are talking about. I am not seeing things I am not meant to see. I am actually SEEING things the way it is SUPPOSED to be seen. Just because its a night time map doesnt mean you cant and shouldnt be able to see anything, star light, moonlight....on moonlight nights in Afghan you dont need crap and you can see everything. Hell even after 10 minutes or so in the Dark with starlight you can see much better. This mode makes BLACK look more realistic. But good try and best of luck, you are another one who prob pulls every excuse up when they get killed....If only I could be a fly on the wall for your gaming time. "its no fair, he has better internet than me, His mouse can control DPI, His graphics card is better therefore he can see in better detail" No contradictions, but I do see a lot of grasping from straws and crying over a monitor.

    You are in fact joking right, "Cheating"... grasping for straws dude. I could only imagine the rage every time you get killed?!

    I have a Xl2411. I play @144hz. I have an Nvidia card so I have Digital Vibrance up to about 75%-100% depending on what game. Picture Settings=Brightness 100, Contrast 40, Low Blue Light 3, Black eQualizer 20, Blur Reduction Off, Picture Advanced= Picture Mode FPS2, DynamicContrast 0, Display Mode Full Why would I choose to what? Use a setting that my expensive Competitive Gaming monitor has built it. It works wonders for games like CSGO, ArmA, Ark, Insurgency and many FPS games. Basically it flushes out the color that is "black" in coding. It cleans it up what would be on other gaming monitors a dark blotchy patch. Its a bell and whistle setting that is amazing. Sportsmanship, in a game where people have Gamma?! Why hinder yourself in a fight because its the moral thing to do? I am not messing with config files or even changing gamma or anything. A simple setting on my monitor that is on at ALL TIMES. I brought this up because the defense FOR forcing shadows is so that it will even the playing field. I was just simply letting people know that with certain monitors that FORCED black blob code will never look as dark for me. Not to mention why force shadows when people with way better rigs than I have still cant play the game or are having serious issues. All in all I was just stating my opinion, I have tons of sportsmanship, I have what I would consider a "high moral compass". Plus, when this game gets going, the pros will all be using these types of monitors. If this still doesn't explain why I "Choose" to, maybe this will. Think of it as me having a better Processor than you, or better internet connection, less latency and these types of things....Do you call someone for these types of things, and claim "For sportsmanship"? I bet you don't. I would almost bet real stuff on the fact that youve never called someone out for having an i7 and 3 titans who you have gamed against! :) So I wonder, how is this setting on my monitor lacking sportsmanship?
