  1. Major Gaming Community - [ EU/ENG]

    think you need to change max to min with either 100+ hrs or 300+ hrs.
  2. Why aren't you playing Squad?

    Customers keeping interrupting me so I get shot or left behind by my squad, plus I need a new PC in the office as this one will only play Squad on low, pi$$ poor internet as well 8MB versus 150MB at home.
  3. Major Gaming Community - [ EU/ENG]

    I was going to apply to join but I can't why? because I have a little too much experience in game (1000+ hrs) Good luck guys, I'll keep a look out for the sever, more well managed servers can only be a good thing PS. probably a typo but maybe it's a tough new strategy to only get new(ish) recruits so they haven't picked up any bad habits?
  4. Ability to hold spawns at your rally point

    all down to squad discipline and situational awareness, kick the *** who has just joined the squad and spawns in without talking to SL or asking what kits are needed and where to spawn. In most squads I have been in I find that its pretty standard for squad members to advise SL when 2 spawns left and SL to respond if he needs the last one saving, SL could be the fuc*in' hero who never dies If you do 'accidently' take the 2nd last stay around the spawn SL can't do sh*t without a 2nd. I would like to see a mechanic which allows randoms to join a squad but SL has to acknowledge that they have joined so SL can give a very brief update on where, what and when before letting them spawn. Just thinking about your idea of 'disabling' the spawn, it would be good way to ensure when needed that 'all' the squad respawns at the same time so they can get back into the fight as a 'unit' rather than in the easy to pick off drips and drabs which happens in most rounds.
  5. November 2017 Recap

    Freelook has been confirmed as in V10, does anyone know if support for trackIR or similar been implemented, if not is it planned for the future?
  6. Release after v10? Maybe

    ^ I can't complain about how long its been or stays in alpha. Dev's have done a great job so far lets see what else they can do, it's playable and bloody enjoyable on a 3 year old Intel/nvidia rig. Game play is better than any AAA game that's been released over the last 5 years. V10 will come when it comes. Of course I'd love to play V10 this weekend but I can wait for it to be right, the problem is lots people these days can't wait for anything without complaining. Later than expected release dates (have Dev's ever given an exact date for V10??) are a disappointment but who's never been part of a team that's missed a deadline at work or missed bus / train etc, time gets away from all of us. Anticipation of what the finished game will contain is all part of playing and paying for EA games, some meet their stated goals and are worth the wait, very few at final release exceed what was originally expected / promised and become classics but most (DayZ etc) will never get there despite all the original game offered, the promises made and money spent. So far over 1000 hrs for <£30 probably best value item I've ever bought, I got my cat for free. Also stopped me watching 1000 hrs of shit on TV or 1000 hrs of hate for cheats / hackers on CoD.
  7. Mini-map

    how about a delay when opening the map and timed updates to simulate the delay in a squad leader advising other squads of his/her squads new positions. Normal infantry don't have 'live' updates on their maps, even at platoon leader level, maps would still need to be manually updated example: an update would come across on the radio, someone would take the update and transpose what was heard into co ordinates on a paper map. IRL when driving would don't see your vehicle on the map (unless using a sat nav). Your navigator looks out of the windows and uses what he sees to position the vehicle on the map and tell you where to go next. I should imagine it being quite difficult IRL to hold a map in one hand and plot a route whilst driving down an unknown road and avoiding 30mm cannon fire, no doubt some people can probably the same one who run triple monitors
  8. More Map commands for SLs

    +1 to additional map markers visible to same squad. To try to stop random SL **cking up the map limit the drawing ability on SL map to only a SL with a squad with SL + 1 other, would make it more but see lots of vehicle squads locked with 2 in squad.
  9. Running a GTX970 with a 4690k, I updated to latest drivers to play the CoD Beta over the weekend. waste of a few hours but free Beta saved me wasting £30+ or refunding it when released , I was down by about 15 fps when I relauched squad so I restored my system back to the 368.81 driver all now back to normal.
  10. What hardware / software set up are people using to get good positional sound? I often get instantly hit by return fire from other players that I have shot at but only wounded so I can only presume that they have heard exactly where I am. I on the other hand in a similar situation can only guess where I got hit from. I have tried several different set ups but I still cannot tell the direction the sound came from. If I listen to a binaural recording my ears seem to work The setups I've tried are: Squad game setting - audio epic 1. Motherboard audio (MSI gaming 5) with stereo headset. 2. Soundblaster Z with stereo headset, tried both the native stereo and the soundblaster surround sound 3. Plantronics RIG500E virtual 7.1 surround sound headset, with software enabled or disabled. Would I hear any improvement with a multi-driver headset (true 7.1) like the Strix 7.1? Any suggestions on what else I could try?
  11. Radial Menu for weapon switching

    I should have asked a long time ago, many thanks.
  12. Radial Menu for weapon switching

    Slightly off topic and probably sounds dumb, but I have almost 1000 hrs in squad and I still do not know how to select from the drop down list I can bring up the list but what then ? left click fires my existing weapon, sorry cant remember what right click does its that long since I tried it again. Back on topic I wouldn't object to a radial menu as long as it's a selectable option, personally I would prefer separate keys for each item. I play medic a lot and its annoying having to pull out and put away a bandage before I get the medi kit out. Although if unnoticed and needing to do it quick selecting 2 instead of 3 as medic has a very poor result sorry.
  13. has anyone else seen enemy players suddenly rise above the ground/long grass then disappear. I have only seen it on Kokan and only since 9.8 update, I was playing as Insurgent vs Russia, sorry for lack of detail also didn't get a screen shot.
  14. Out of memory

    There are quite a few post regarding NVIDIA drivers and reasons NOT to use the latest drivers, some members (not me) have put a LOT of time into testing various versions and come to the conclusion that version 368.81 is one of the better options. I took their advise and loaded these drivers without all the other crap that comes with them as per Skuls suggestion and saw an increase in my FPS (no screen shots to prove it, but it did improve!) see the two post below or search on NVIDIA DRIVER
  15. If / when customization is brought in it should only be seen by the player customizing their character in their local environment, this way you can have whatever differences you want but everyone else who doesn't don't give a shit what you look like gets to play the game as normal with no increases in CPU/GPU/network/server loading. If you want to stand out from the crowd why not get better at the game so you are recognised for your performance and not just by looking like a ****.
