  1. I used to record videos with Dxtory using x264vfw and Lame encoders. But it seems like Dxtory stopped working after EAC has been implemented. FRAPS creates very large files, Mirillis Action using some random codec, doesn't give that x264vfw quality and image size and it locks FPS... Afterburner can't record using x264vfw Any other suggestions? I would like to record without FPS lock and have some file of a normal size and not 30 GB file after an hour of recording. Can you guys suggest something similar to x264vfw to get adequate file size and FPS, to upload on Youtube and which will work in afterburner or some other program which works in Squad and record with x264vfw or some other good encoder?
  2. So, there is Sensitivity variables in: %AppData%\Local\Squad\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini Line 9: AimSensitivity=0.067500 SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Squad\Engine\Config\BaseInput.ini Line 21: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseX",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) Line 22: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseY",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Config\DefaultInput.ini Line 9: -AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseX",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) Line 10: -AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseY",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) Line 15: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseX",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.000000,Sensitivity=0.070000,Exponent=1.000000,bInvert=False)) Line 16: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseY",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.000000,Sensitivity=0.070000,Exponent=1.000000,bInvert=False)) Line 138: AimSensitivity=4.700000 Also, there is bEnableFOVScaling=False and bEnableMouseSmoothing=False I kinda understand how FOV scaling works. It multiply mouse sensivity by FOV Scale(0.011110). But it would be nice to see actual formulas. BTW, I get different accelleration(depending on how fast or slow I move my mouse) with mouse smoothing enabled, so I disabled it. It would be nice if devs explained how whole mouse sensitivity thing works with formulas, please. But that's not why I've created this thread. I've created this thread because there is at least 5 places where you can set your mouse sensitivity. I figured that 'end' mouse sensitivity is a result of +AxisConfig Sensitivity multiplied by AimSensitivity variable in GameUserSettings.ini. So, let's say I've got 0.067500 in GameUserSettings.ini and Sensitivity=0.07f in +AxisConfig. My 'end' mouse sensitivity is: 0.067500*0.07=0.004725. At some point of time I changed +AxisConfig Sensitivity to 0.01 and AimSensitivity to 0.4725, my in-game sens didn't change but it became kinda smoother and more responsive, especially at lower FPS. Now I ended up with +AxisConfig Sensitivity=0.000001 and AimSensitivity=4725.000(GameUserSettings.ini) and I still get the exact same 'real life' sensitivity but it feels much smoother, more responsive and it is actually easier to aim, track enemies and spray than with default values of 0.067500*0.07... I understand that you used 0.07 value in +AxisConfig Sensitivity because of people with low DPI(400-800) and because it's alpha and you didn't have time to convert 4725.000 number to a proper 0.4725 sensitivity etc. But can you please explain the whole sensitivity thing, please? There's actually other option. You can set +AxisConfig Sensitivity=1.000000 and AimSensitivity=0.004725 and get the exact same end(0.004725) and in-game sensitivity again... But which is better: 0.067500*0.07, 0.000001*4725.000 or 1.000000*0.004725? What would you recommend and why? And what about Exponent argument for +AxisConfig? What about raw Input and direct Input? At the moment I just play with AimSensitivity=4725.000 in GameUserSettings.ini and +AxisConfig Sensitivity=0.000001... Devs, pls explain.
  3. Yes That's just a bullshit which is used everywhere to make an exuse and explain people why they can't fix problems. They did release vehicles and skins, right? But FPS? Nah. Do you know why? Because vehicles and skins are a lot more profitable than FPS or UI fixes. Meaning it isn't about making quality product, it's about making more people to just purchase the product. And it doesn't matter if they will ever launch the game. I was saying they should release optimization patches and not maps/skins/modes/vehicles or any other content before they actually fix performance problems. Have you ever heard of quality assurence engineers? That's what we are at the moment. As af as I know they should pay me to play this game with bugs, lags and glitches because then after game I come to this forum and report bugs to the devs. Just like author of this thread did. http://steamspy.com/app/393380 Of course, devs didn't buy new houses. That's not how it works. Coders, designers, artists etc. are just doing their job and getting paid. Owners are getting all the money from sells. And owners aren't devs. In this case one owner might be the dev at the same time but it doesn't mean that all devs are owners and they will not buy new houses. Man, this isn't about a 4:3 monitor. This is about optimization and attitude of nowadays eterprise to the customer.
  4. Suddenly experiencing Bad FPS? Try this!

    I wouldn't call it complaining. Just noticed and commented on it.
  5. The only thing I can think of is to create 16:9 custom resolution in Nvidia control panel or using custom resolution utility. But you gonna need to educate yourself and read about the topic for few hours before you'll be able to actually change it Use MonInfo to see maximum horizontal resolution(it's 1600 usually) and set your vertical resolution accordingly. So if your monitor is capable to run at 1600 horizontal resolution, then it would be 1600x900. You can also try 1600x1000 to play at 16:10 or 1600:1100 to play at 16:11. Using the same method you can overclock your monitor. I can suggest to look into it since CRT's sometimes can be overclocked up to 200 Hz(a lot better and faster than this 240 Hz light boost shit which is only 120 Hz really). Programs that can help you with it: MonInfo, CRU, nvlddmkm-patcher. More thoughts on the topic:
  6. Need advice about external sound card

    What sounds more to you than the Front L/R? And how do you mean center speakers are inverse? Oh, it can be better than 'big' surround sound system(in terms of positioning in video games) but you have to configure it properly(at least turn off center and sub). Why 5.1/7.1 headsets can be better(and they are) than big 5.1/7.1 systems in terms of positioning? In real life your brain determine where sounds are coming from by how fast sounds get to one of your ears compared to the other one, by sound frequencies(in left and right ear) and by sound volume(power, measured in decibels). So when people say that stereo can provide a proper positioning they could be right but they say it because of lack of understanding how things work. Common speakers(some high-end hi-fi just might would be able to do this) can't provide accurate proper timings to make it work as well as proper frequencies and volume. Commond speakers are very innacurate. Same with CPUs. Not to say that you would need about 50 people working on the in-game sound engine just to make this system work. And then it would take a lot of years to master it. But how would you explain all of that nerdy shit to average people? It's a lot easier to sell Titan X's for $1500 because you can benchmark it and benchmarks are obvious. More teraflops - good, less teraflops - bad. Not to mention they even have to write it in graphics itself that more is better because people don't understand even that much. And games using just a crossfade algorithm. In video games you determine where sounds are coming from not because of sound frequency and how fast sounds get to your one ear compared to the another, but just by dumb sound volume(sound power). Meaning if something explode 45° to your right, it will just play exact same sound in both left and right dynamics but with different volume: 75% in right dynamic and 25% in left dynamic, for example: But real ratio and numbers will be different depending on the settings of your application. In CSGO, for example, you can change positions of your virtual speakers. You can set 90°, 45°, 30° or 0° if you wish for any of your speakers. Too bad we don't know positions of the virtual speakers in Squad. It would be awesome if sound experts of Squad came here and told us his thoughts on the matter.
  7. [solved] Cant hear Squad teammates

    Like the other guy said. Make sure you have stereo in your control panel: And not some 5.1/7.1 setup: Yes, even if you're using surround-sound 5.1/7.1 headset(which is really only stereo and nothing more)
  8. where is everyone?

    I had it in the past right after some hotfix. I think it was when game updated from 6.2 to 6.3. For some reason it didn't want to update the game for me personally. Check your game integrity and if it doesn't help, uninstall your game, delete Squad folder in appData and in steam libraty and then redownload the game. It helped me.
  9. Left handed view models

    But we can use some more AK74 skins, right? I think they added not enough skins to the Squad. In my opinion they just might should dedicate all of their time in v8 to skins, keys and chests(like in CSGO). It would be so awesome to see kids playing with those in Squad. How many games do you know with left-handed views? I can recall CS 1.6, source and CS:GO. Well, I wouldn't say it is the least important thing. When I play a paintball IRL I switch between left-handed and right-handed stands dependingly on which corner I peek. When I want to shoot from left-sided corner, I switch to the left-handed stand and I lean left: And when I want to shoot from right-sided corner, I switch to the right-handed stand and I lean right: Because this way you can lean more and you can show less of your body when you shoot. Very good advantage when you know what you're doing. That same system is used in Squad. You can lean more to the right side and you show less of your body when you lean to the right side because you use right-handed stand. And I can proudly say I didn't read it somewhere or watched it on Youtube etc. I kinda invented it myself. Never saw anyone using that anywhere. Yeah, imagine doing what I described above in game. No. What makes you say that? I don't think it would be the problem to leave map on the right side of the monitor if you want it yourself. This kind of things should be customizeable, anyway. Hm, I don't know about that. I am left-handed myself, too, but as I said IRL I play 50% of time left-handed and 50% of time right-handed and pretty much all games is using right-handed stands except CS and maybe one or two others... But yeah, when I play CS I use left-handed model view. If they allowed me to switch in-between stands in Squad, I would be switching all the time dependingly on the situation.
  10. Grafic 30 Fps

    My apologies, moderators.

    My apologies, moderators.
  12. Suddenly experiencing Bad FPS? Try this!

    I think I read this for about 10-15 times in the last month... Yeah, it helps some people. But do you actually need to clone topics?
  13. Yes, unfortunately the only option at the moment is to sell your motherboard, CPU and optionally RAM, and then buy system based on Intel CPU. I recommend DDR4, Skylake and Z170 motherboard.
  14. Grafic 30 Fps

    Haha, sure. Cool story. Record some gameplay with benchmark on at least 55-men server. I'm even gonna cut you some slack, you can record it on only-infantry(on the map with no vehicles) server with 55 men on it. I bet my house and a soul(like if I had one) you will not get more than 30 FPS average.
  15. Grafic 30 Fps

    All low+this: If I was on your place(and I was), I'd better change a CPU and not a video card. If you sold your FX-8370, motherboard and memory and then bought Z170 motherboard(DDR4), i-5 6400(and OC'd it to ~4.6 gHz) and DDR4 memory, you would be getting ~60 FPS now with your R9 280X 3 Gb video card. With that AMD CPU you could even buy triple-SLI Titan X(Pascal) setup and you would still be getting ~20 FPS with that CPU and 3-5% GPU utilization.
  16. Resolution problem/borderless not working

    Try to set ResolutionSizeX=1920 ResolutionSizeY=1080 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=1920 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1080 DesiredScreenWidth=1920 DesiredScreenHeight=1080 bUseDesktopResolutionForFullscreen=False FullscreenMode=1 LastConfirmedFullscreenMode=1 PreferredFullscreenMode=1 In %AppData%\Local\Squad\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini and ResolutionSizeX=1920 ResolutionSizeY=1080 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=1920 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1080 bUseDesktopResolutionForFullscreen=False FullscreenMode=1 LastConfirmedFullscreenMode=1 bAltEnterTogglesFullscreen=False In %SteamLibrary%\steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Config\DefaultInput.ini It might help and it might not. But I personally play in borderless and I usually force all settings in every place I can: in application data, in engine/config and squad/config. Usually when I don't force all settings in .ini files it likes to set some random settings to defaults like mouse sensitivity, binds or video settings... PS You quoted yourself in first post.
  17. eyes hurt, too blurry

    I'd say Squad suffers from pixelization and not blur. Here's blur: And here's example of pixelized image: In my opinion Squad is pixelized too much, not blurred: Or this image: Does it look blurred to you? It definitely doesn't look blurred at all to me. But pixelization, I'm sure you can see how badly pixelized image is. Looks like 540p image interpolated to a 1080p resolution. But I took this screenshot in 1080p originally in lossless .png format.
  18. Cannot see ingame Skin options

    Me atm: I mean, really? Do you really want this game to have problems like this one? http://www.dailydot.com/esports/csgo-gambling-scandal-explained/
  19. Cannot see ingame Skin options

    Pls, no. I don't want this game to become slut of donators or even worse - slut of gambling addicts and schoolsports which play the game only because of skins, like CS:GO, for example, and not because of gameplay.
  20. Need advice about external sound card

    Anyway, here's why center&sub destroy positioning: There are only one virtual center speaker and only one sub-woofer. It means applications can't send sounds to a 'left center speaker' or 'right center speaker'. And on usual 5.1 speaker systems there are also one sub and one center speaker. In our situation with 5.1 headsets we have 2 sub-woofers(on left and right ear) and 2 center speakers(on left and right ear). But they work in a mono mode. 100% Common sound cards(as well as common applications including 100% of video games) don't even support this kind of crippled 6.2(that's what these true 5.1 headsets actually are: a crippled 6.2 surround sound systems, half of which is working in mono-sound mode) surround sound systems. And these 5.1 surround sound heasets don't even have enough jacks and wires to become true 6.2 systems(but they can if you have enough jacks and wires at your home and you know how to work with resolder). The point is that center and sub speeakers is only make it worse because they are crippled both physically and programmatically. And if you want to have best positioning possible in video games you should turn center and sub channels off. I think that's the reason why people say that true 5.1 headsets are worse than stereo: they play with sub & center challes on and they don't know how to configure it properly. PS Judging by the tests I ran, 7.1 headsets with turned off center&sub channels should be perfect for Squad. Here's some example of 7.1 headset: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Razer-Tiamat-7-1-Analog-7-1-Surround-Sound-Gaming-Headset-/121923390069?hash=item1c63334a75:g:hsUAAOSwAuNW5Z8D
  21. Fixed 15 FPS to 60+ with BIOS Change

    So basically what you really did is you reset your BIOS to default settings. What makes you think it's new version of BIOS that helped you and not some turned on/off C-states or HPET or any of other million settings in previously installed BIOS? It could be the same version and you just reset it to default by installing it again. Do you know what version of BIOS was installed before you updated it to the latest version? Even if you really installed newer version of the BIOS there is a big chance that it was some random setting like HPET or hyper-threading that was causing the problem. But the general idea that BIOS settings can affect FPS is very good. Happens all the time in different games.
  22. Need advice about external sound card

    Sounds still sound from both sub-woofer speakers of headset(left and right) no matter where sounds are coming from(from left, right, from the front of from behind of you). And center channel speakers(center left and center right speakers on headset) is just destroyers of positional audio because it transfers all sounds to both left and right ears no matter where sounds are coming from in 45° area to the left and to the right from the center of your point of view:
