  1. Anyone with an AMD RX 570 or AMD card know how to set up a Radeon profile for Squad? I'm trying to get better performance out of the game, and anti-aliasing options, but am stuck. There are a ton of anti-aliasing options in here, for different DirextX versions (and nothing for DX11, which Squad is using?) and a ton of other options too, but I have no idea which to use and would rather avoid hours and hours of relaunching, waiting to get into a server (especially with my current issue) and testing each one. System: i7-8700k RX 570 16B 3200mhz DDR4 500GB SSD Driver: 20.1.1 Thanks if ya can help me out.

    But I do not have packet loss? I checked. Dozens of times. I have called my ISP. I have talked with Squad support, who asked me to check if I had packet loss. My ISP got rather annoyed with me after the seventh call of me requesting to check if there was an issue and to help me determine of there was one on my end. So much so that they came out and repaired all of the lines (which were new since that year anyway) but the issue is still here. Got a new router, too. Issue still here. I got new CATs, issue still here. And no amount of rejoining after amount of waiting fixes it for me. The kick is every 15mins, on any server, straight to the main menu. Only on Squad. Given that all my tests have come up clean and my ISP is adamant that I do not have these issues and Squad support even thought this and ended up agreeing, I am going to say: it is not on my end. It started with the helicopter patch. Immediately. Let's say it is that issue though. I've had the same connection for years and have been playing without issue on Squad since 2017 (2016?), a near $200 ultimate package from my ISP, so if I have packet loss all of this time (which I don't from my end and my ISP confirms), Squad made a change with the helicopter patch that kicks people for even the most softest of loses—which is asinine and if true, needs to be fixed ASAP. The Steam thread itself now is at 50 comments and still going, and that's just the Steam thread. This is getting ridiculous and the devs need to say and do something about the issue. Ignoring it is just wrong.

    I haven't played since. I don't think it is ever going to work again. My internet is fine, my router is fine, I have nothing wrong with my computer (even checked others). It is something to due with Squad or EAC, but it isn't something I think they can figure out so I guess I'm done with Squad.

    I see a patch has been pushed through, but no notes on what it is. I really hope it is a fix for this issue and the other crashing issue a lot of us are experiencing...
  8. Can I run this?

    No problem man! I'm glad it worked for you. Enjoy Squad!

    BUMP I've now also tried the NIC Offloading suggested here. Did not help, I'm still being thrown to the menu with server closed connection messages. I just want to play the game. I've contacted Squad support, EAC support, reinstalled Windows 10, reinstalled Steam, reinstalled Squad, tried my SSD and HDDs, tried clearing cache manually and automatically (and at different stages hoping it would help), I've tried disabling firewalls, I've tried repairing EAC, uninstalled + rebooting + reinstalling EAC, I've tried reinstalling my GPU drivers fresh (latest, last one before and 3 back from the latest), checking to see if I have a virus (despite being on a new OS install), I've tried enabling Developer Mode on Win10, I've tried removing all unnecessary devices from the PC, I've tried uninstalling everything that is not directly essential (that means even my browser, Firefox!), I've tried resetting my router, I had my ISP check my connection and make sure my router was healthy and up to date....I think I've tried everything at this point. Please, someone...help. EDIT Does it perhaps have something to do with this??? https://www.tacticalgamer.com/forum/simulation/squad/1789416-server-closed-connection
  10. Can I run this?

    I have the k edition of the i7-8700k and a RX 4gb card, and I can play (when it isn't crashing of course) quite comfortably on high levels @ 1080p. Your GPU should definitely be able to handle Squad. To what level I'm not entirely sure, but it should at least be able to handle medium settings but for sure low comfortably. The weakest thing on your PC right now is your GPU, and then your RAM (if possible go to 16GB). I'd consider saving up to upgrade that GPU to at least an RX AMD card, something like 570/580 (they are uber cheap lately) or something in that area. I believe the 2060s are reasonable now, but don't quote me on that. However, for your current PC, to see what is wrong, you can use DDU in Safe Mode to uninstall current drivers and then reboot back into standard and install the latest drivers, fresh, for your GPU. Then navigate to appdata > local and delete the Squad folders there. This is a must every patch for Squad or you will get absolute trash performance from Squad. Then right click Squad in Steam and go to properties and verify it. Lastly, test it and see if it fixes your issues. My last bit of advice though? Turn off ALL in game anti-aliasing options and use your GPU control panel options. I found not only does my AMD options look 100000x better, I get way better performance out of it. You'll need to disable the options in Squad first though, or it won't work. Hopefully any of that helps.

    Turns out it didn't help. It granted me about 3 hours of reprieve and then returned. What a headache.
  12. Server Closed Connection

    Since I couldn't get support from Squad or EAC, I decided to reinstall Windows 10 and see if that'll fix the issue. It seemingly fixed the issue. I'll continue to test but the solution should not be to reinstall Windows entirely. At all.

    I've been digging. This is not a small problem and it seems to have been getting worse and worse every patch. I haven't seen a single reply from a dev or any official answer on any of these threads either (or the reddit threads or the steam threads), and there are still tons of people still having this issue. Is it just being ignored? Is it a problem that happens sometimes with latest patches? Are they even aware of this?
