  1. Alpha 13 Released

    So i was waiting for over a full year for those very much needed and promised gameplay changes (new rally point system as it has already been too much spawning, rushing, etc.) and after all that time now were getting instant death removal and even more rally points. Alright, goodbye.
  2. What FPS do you get playing Squad with your rig?

    I have a 750w psu which is an absolute overkill and will buy the 2080
  3. I do not support this idea, would rather see people driving that logy back to some place where its needed. (IMO) The only reason people are suiciding in main at the moment is because theres a constant flow of spawnpoints just next to your squadleader. Suicide, spawn on rally point. Instant pew pew pew again. Limit rallypoints is my wish yet again so its more difficult to get back to your squad (rallypoint staying up for only 30-60 seconds, overrun by one person within 10m and only available once every 5 minutes/10 minutes if it was overrun. You could also make them become constant (like in pr) if theyre within 200m of an APC or a FOB). Logistics could be such an important and big part of the game that you could have small dedicated logistic squads doing nothing but building FOBS/Driving around with supplies. And yes, if good Fob placement and a working supply route became so important that its gamechanging for the teams you would have plenty of people willing to do just that and nothing else. Not everyone likes to go and fight all the time. The HAB overrun mechanism will already shift the gameplay more towards that, hopefully some people figure out how important well hidden fobs can be. If you dont have spawnpoints all over the place available all the time you gotta get creative to ensure noone is gonna take out those few that you have. Or you simply build so many that you dont have to care anymore. Also, once theres helicopters in the game it would be nice if those infantry people who just needed a logy truck hopped into a heli to get back to their squads location. You know, so that the pilots actually have something to do. Edit: It would also be nice if there were different kind of HABs so you can fit your needs, if you want to create a stealthy hidden spawn somewhere inside a building where it cant be seen take a small HAB, if you want to defend a hilltop or something give people a much bigger option so fresh spawns are safe from mortar fire and so on. 3 different HABs would do great i think, may be 4 if you decide to create a really big one the teams can also try to defend for a while. Like a small bunker. I understand the frustration that this mechanic is causing atm, everyone is in the fight having fun and youre forced to wait on black screen for ages. Nontheless IMO having all people participating in the actual firefights all the time should be an achievement which you cant obtain without a really well working supply/spawn system. Dont make it too frustrating to get fobs and spawnpoints up but make people work for it so they appreciate dedicated logistic squads.
  4. Hmm, thanks for that info but is the crash caused by Rivatuner? You can run it without afterburner. I used it for quite some time and didnt realize anything going wrong with squad, its already a long while ago though so..
  5. Get Rivatuner, it comes with MSI afterburner. You can limit your fps with this program to whatever you want - global or just in any given game, just as you wish. Edit: You`re welcome.
  6. graphic settings are getting abused hard

    So now were from super low graphics being a problem to "everything but super high is a problem". I see where this is going. Also btw, i have shadows on high and ambient occlusion enabled cuz it looks so much nicer. Dont know, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!make pictures and lets compare them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Apparently its a real issue for you, i think taking some time to make screenshots so we can compare them altogether would be worth your time. Obviously youll do worse in an fps game if you crank the settings up all the way, even a 1080ti wont give you 150 fps with everyting maxed. Low fps = bad shooting performance due to input lagg etc. I even feel like higher settings give you better visibility since the soldiers will always tend to glow a little brighter than their dark surroundings, something that you lack without shadows and AO. Without it everything has the exact same color to me. I just see things with contrast faster than things with little to no contrast. Something is telling me everyone does that, but may be im wrong about the glowing thing so lets see pics, shall we? Also i certainly do not believe this gives you a three times better performance increase (except you have 25 fps on epic and 150+ on low)... Low graphics wont turn you from literally blind into a god. Slighty yeah for sure but not that much. I see a little exaggerating but its okay, Sir. May be youve become better or just had a really nice round? Edit: Remember folks kills dont matter anyway! Am i right? No?
  7. graphic settings are getting abused hard

    @OP are you a reddit user? This thread could have come straight out of reddit. Reminds me of the good ol` R6:Siege "I`m only bad at siege cuz Bandit and Jaeger have acog and I HATE USING ACOGS. Muuuuh spawnrape how dare you expect me to pay attention". - Obviously this here is different though, dont mind my rage. Im still mad. ****ing reddit/social media and its users. Also, i dont see any problems. Not playing on super low and i can see everyone just fine (theres a setting/fps thread if you want to know exact settings). Especially putting the Shadows on low makes the game look horrible and bland, not in a million years i would use that for 3-4 more kills. And im not so sure what you mean about being a killing machine but im averaging at around 20+ kills every round (infantry). That being said I doubt one can be an actual killing machine in this game, you would have to wipe squad after squad after squad which is not going to happen. However, i agree about Anti-Aliasing but thats due to the TAA/FXAA which makes the game look very blurry. Thats the case with every game though which is why a lot of people dont use AA at all. TL:DR i dont feel like being at a disadvantage, may be i am slightly but i surely dont want this to have any sort of priority. Edit: Can someone make Screenshots with some guy sitting in a THICC bush with different graphic settings? May be im completely wrong, would be interesting to see. Especially since i dont really know how the game looks when you apply the epic preset, post-processing wise.
  8. Bought new gaming laptop – 30 FPS?!

    Yeah, laptops are much more expensive for what they offer. Quite obviously since theyre transportable and much smaller than an actual desktop. If you really need a laptop make sure you have a 1060 or 1070 inside. Those should cost around 1500€. Edit: Ram wont do anything for you at all. Its memory, you suffer greatly when you dont have enough but having more wont make you have any benefits. Apart from being able to use RAM drives and such things but you dont need that. If you really need a laptop save up for a while, if not try to find someone who can help you build a pc (even if hes just on discord or skype talking to you). A decent pc that will run squad without any issues will cost you around 950 Dollars (without monitor, mouse, keyboard, headset/sound-system+microphone). If youre going to build one feel free to ask here for advice on what hardware you could get im sure people enjoy this stuff.
  9. What FPS do you get playing Squad with your rig?

    No, that has been fixed. Even though medium preset will still do for a lot of people and looks quite a bit nicer.


    I completely agree with everything OP posted, you nerds are just so horrible... You should enlist instead and give us spawns erywhere, snipers, snipers n sum more .50 cal snipers n sum ghillie suits ok And tanks And intense aim punch sniper suppresion for all dem immersionz
  12. Too "realistic"/Slow?

  13. Bad FPS on good systems

    I hate being the guy that shares the bad news but no optimization is going to fix your fps with a core 2 quad q9550 and a gtx 750ti. This game is 2018 pre-alpha and your hardware is from 2014 And not only is it 2014, its VERY-LOW-END-2014-ti :(((( And yes i know, its good enough to run gta 5 (aka da best luking gaem ever) at 60 fps, but gta 5 is a console game from 2013. Not the best PC here but having no issues with optimization, runs just as good/bad as any other UE4 game. SORRY BRO, i feel you man i really do. But you cant blame the game - its your pc. Edit: Theres some very low end builds on youtube with that exact same specs, please tell me you didnt just build that. I mean if you did: Good job man im sure that was hard as hell, but sadly its too weak for this particular pre alpha game. Basically any UE4 game will be horrible for you may be except for fortnite. Try to apply the "low" preset my dude and then see what youve got, from there try to change some settings but the preset (used to, not sure of todays build) gets rid of post processing effects that really eat a lot of your fps. May be that helps a little bit. I would not count on it though. Also, while squad is still in development if you want to try a similar game that your system can run and that is also fun try out Project Reality (if you didnt know that yet). It`s free and just a small download file but plenty of awesome people and possibilities. 100% worth a try if you like squad. ( www.realitymod.com ) I played that damn game for more than 10 years, dont judge by the graphics. It`s basically squad with ten times more content, maps, factions, vehicles, etc but a very old engine that just cant keep up with the game anymore. All the best
