  1. Suddenly experiencing Bad FPS? Try this!

    My issue is a lot of the time if its not at the top of the list people dont see it. Who would know to search for Deleting userconfig? I wouldn't. Also it was a fix i found and rushed to the forums to tell people about it
  2. I had noticed a sudden fps drop with the v7 patch and put it down to maybe the patch (since a lot of other people were saying their fps took a hit). But yesterday i asked my friends what fps they were getting (Lot of them didnt know that Statfps command showed FPS) they answered 50-90fps within the range of my 5 friends. I was getting 20 max and my system was better than some of theirs. - This was on the logar valley INS Night. I restarted PC, updated my GPU driver (co-incidence there wwas an update on that day) and lowered and upped my settings but nothing helped. Something that is at the bottom of almost every big change is to delete your configs. To be honest i ignored it thinking ah, that wont have any effect its just a 'just incase' type scenario. But it has massively increased my FPS. What you do: 1) Windows key + R 2) Type %Appdata% 3) Press back arrow and go to Local 4)Find Squad folder, open it and Delete the WindowsNoEditor Folder 5) Relaunch Game My Fps went from 15-20 to 60-70fps. Try it and let me know! (Note i havent done this since pre-testing so that may be a reason why) Cant promise anything - but trying to pass on what worked for me for others who overlooked it
  3. Battle Royale / Hunger Games MOD ?

    Not usually a fan of Battle Royale/Hunger Gamest type mode, that being said if it was like a team'd mode i'd love it. I'd love a good Team/Squad vs Zombie waves mod tho ;). First 5 minutes is about setting up defenses as a team/squad around 'Food supplies' (Aka a weapons cache reskin) and then survive the zombie outbreak as a squad and protect the food supplies.
  4. How I have almost doubled my FPS

    Full server I've had the drops also, could it be due to maybe server performance related? But when not on a full server say 40/75 i still get fps boosts when doing this (not as high as the firing range fps tho) and i do have quite a 'good' system but when recording and streaming any fps helps for me.
  5. Hello, So i spent a long time trying to figure out what settings cause me to gain the most fps by lowering them. Post processing from Epic to low caused me to go from 80fps to 140fps however the lighting and jagged edges were extremely annoying and affected my experience in-game (I am a very aesthetic games kinda guy :P ). So All you have to do is: 1) Navigate to Squad directory's BaseScalability.ini file (e.g C/Program files 86/steam/steamapps/common/squad/engine/config/basescalability.ini). 2) Open it, Control + F and paste this - [[email protected]] to locate it. 3) Replace values under [[email protected]] with these ones: r.MotionBlurQuality=0r.AmbientOcclusionMipLevelFactor=0r.AmbientOcclusionMaxQuality=0r.AmbientOcclusionLevels=0r.AmbientOcclusionRadiusScale=0r.DepthOfFieldQuality=0r.RenderTargetPoolMin=300r.LensFlareQuality=2r.SceneColorFringeQuality=1r.EyeAdaptationQuality=2r.BloomQuality=0r.FastBlurThreshold=0r.Upscale.Quality=3r.TonemapperQuality=1r.LightShaftQuality=1r.Filter.SizeScale=1 4) Then get in-game and change your Post processing setting to Medium - VERY IMPORTANT STEP DO NOT MISS IT 5) Enjoy Higher FPS with little visual difference Any Questions or problems let me know and let me know if you have found the same differences as i have (Or not)
  6. My Findings with below PC setup (will also do another with a lower Vram Card later) CPU - i7 4790k GPU - r9 390x 8gb Vram Ram - 8gb @ 1600 So I lowered all of my settings to the 'Low' Preset on Quality settings. (Wanted to also see which settings reduce fps the most when increased) Decided to run the training map so i didnt take into account difference in server setups and player numbers and maps. Structure of test: - Launch Game > Training > USA > Create Squad > Squad Leader Role > Run up to hesco > Wait 2 minutes and note fps down using both Stat fps and Dxtory Fps counter With OUT any of the above changes i got a stable 122 fps. With Changes i was on 180-188fps. With Changes @ 100% Res Scale (Default on Low is 77% - or is in the 70's can't remember what exact number) i was on 138-144fps. More tests to come along with Epic Preset Tests I did not get any difference in either of the Texture ranges (from low to epic / 0 - 3) but thats because of the 8gb card
  7. Sorry if this is a stupid question but what is post processing (I've try to google it but said a few people have asked the same thing (not for Squad but in general) and replies say its vague because can include many things (Bloom, blur, lighting, depth-of-field) but whats in Squads? I'm doing all sorts of tests to see fps differences and ram usages just to sort of know what causes the main loss of fps or what can gain you the most fps by tweaking or lowering (or highering to get more fps i'm a fan of Arma afterall). So far i've found that Res Scaling from 100% to 120% reduces my fps by 20, Effects - Low = 130 fps, Epic - 90fps Post processing - Low = 120-130fps - Epic = 60-70fps The game is extremely 'dark' without post processing so would like to know what's in it to know what im sort of missing if i lower it to low

  11. Taw The Art Of Warfare Arma 3 Division

    Hey battlerhino, First off a bit of info: :--) when a game releases TAW members usually see potential in it (many of us see great potential in Squad so thats no issue ) and then there is a spin up request. Then it goes into a sort of vote/discussion and finally it becomes a spin up division then when there are enough members, A full division = With Regards to your question, aslong as there is enough popularity for it then i will hope and assume the answer to the question is YES! If you want to join us for some arma then transfer to the Squad division when its spun-up you can do that too :D
