  1. Hey there, if you installed Squad for the first time (for e.g. after a clean Windows installation) and you install a Squad Mod, you may experience that you can't join a server running this mod, but others can. The reason for that is, that the registry key holding the Squad installation path is no longer be created in this location in registry. To fix that (this is a temporary workaround until it gets fixed in Squad), you need to create the "old" registry key manually. If Squad is installed in the default location C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Squad then you just need to download the following reg file, unzip and execute it: Squad_a-11-0_Modding_Hotfix.zip If Squad is installed in a different location like D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Squad you need to open the reg-file (right click and choose "Edit") and change the "install_path" from "install_path"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\Squad" to "install_path"="D:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Squad" (notice the double backslashes \\ ) so that the file content looks like this: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OffworldIndustries] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\OffworldIndustries\Squad] "install_path"="D:\\SteamLibrary\\steamapps\\common\\Squad" Save the file and execute it. Your mods should work fine again! Have fun!
  2. 8 GB ram not enough?

    For everyone who has issues with 8GB RAM and Squad: can you post a screenshot of your pagefile configuration here please? Thanks. The point for asking is: there is a known bug in the engine code which causes memory leaks. This shall be fixed within the next version Squad is going to upgrade to - UE4.16. For now just make sure, that you have a pagefile configured and the size of it is at least 16GB (for 8GB RAM). You can configure it dynamically (with min. and max. values) or you select "System managed size". This should prevent you from restarting the game after every map.
  3. Tickrate Tanking

    @Cpt.Myers: is the windows server running on a virtual machine? If so, you would need to run it non virtualized ("real" hardware). It could also be, that your CPU is running in "power save" or "balanced" mode. Make sure to set it to "performance". What else is running on that machine? Could be that not enough RAM is available for the squad server.
  4. Resolution is screwed

    what happend? Does the game start with the 4k settings?
  5. Resolution is screwed

    For 4k setting not adjustable, please try the following: - open the file %localappadata%\Squad\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini - search for these entries and change it to your 4k resolution settings: ResolutionSizeX=1920 ResolutionSizeY=1080 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=1920 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1080 . . DesiredScreenWidth=1920 DesiredScreenHeight=1080 I can't test it here as I don't have a 4k monitor. Please report if it works and probably add some infos if you changed something else to make it work. thx
  6. Alpha Version 9 Released

    @bobbavet there is a known issue with 4k res. Please check the support forums if there is already a solution or start a new request thread.
  7. January 2017 Monthly Recap

    The new animation system video blew me right away
  8. On round start: why you just spawn in? Where do your character come from? Why you don't see the whole story behind it like beeing born, growing up, going to school, joining a military academy and so on?

    These are A7 settings. The settings in A8 would be helpful.

  11. Map Intel

    For me it sounds like a re-education measure when you want to force the squad members to stay near SL by giving them a reduced visual field on the map. Maybe you just trying to solve a player (in your opinion) behaviour problem by the game itself. If you are a good SL then tell the guys to stick together. Those who don't react on your orders -> kick them out of your squad.
  12. Alpha 7.7 Released

    I guess it's because you get a system notification (default discord settings), if someone writes to "@everyone" and there are already some hundreds on the server and most people have discord in the background running (start with windows)...but these are all just guesses...
  13. Alpha 7.7 Released

    Yesterday Norby requested on discord to fill up the OWI test server. He gave us the PW for the beta branch. Unfortunately the max. player count (what I have seen) was about 45 players. For a better test 72 players where needed. But the server emptied quickly after 1 hour. It would be nice if more guys join the squad community discord server and join such full-server-load tests and give a constructive feedback after such a test session. I recommend to restart your PCs after Squad updates. I had no issues while playing after the update - only after closing the game (had the same issue on 7.3 release but a PC restart fixed it). From my perspective the game runs smoother on some maps, on others (like Sumari) I have low fps from round start on. I played for about 2 - 3 hours with 3-4 map changes -> NO fatal error crashes and NO other crash during this time.

  15. The game is still in alpha stage of development. When it will be released then I believe there will be 4:3 support available What is your PC spec? I guess when it's also "outdated" then you won't be happy with playing Squad.
