  1. I'm glad your problems are gone. It is sad AMD CPUs are so...just well, as they are. I keep rooting for them to do better every time they announce something, but it just doesn't seem like they can catch up, which is a shame. Anyways, awesome news and glad you're getting some beefy results! Enjoy the game!
  2. Will this setup run pretty well

    Isn't dual channel almost always better than single channel? He should get two sticks and put them in as dual. edit huh cant seem to post links...
  3. Can I Run The Game With This Rig?

    I went from 6gb to 8gb, saw a huge difference in Squad (and Arma 3!). I went from 8gb to 16gb (with a page file of 12gb on my main HDD) a few months ago. It makes a huge difference for me, and kicked me up to the FPS I listed above. I can play this game comfortably again (used to be able to play Epic believe it or not!) on my PC now when before I was struggling to maintain 30-40 FPS on the lowest settings ever since v9 hit public. If you can, I would definitely suggest getting more RAM if you have the money room to do it. Just make sure it is compatible with your system.
  4. Psyrus is right. He's got the reasoning behind which to get very well and knows his stuff. Your AMD CPU, even at an extremely high overclock, is still extremely underpowered. AMD's cores are notoriously underpowered per core. That's why, even with your new GPU, you didn't really see a change in your performance. You really need to upgrade to Intel if you want to see some dramatic change in your performance, especially in a game like Squad. Otherwise, your only option now is to turn down options and resolutions to lessen the load on your CPU and GPU until you can upgrade the rest of your system....if you can. You can also try pushing up your page filing if you've got the RAM to do it. It may not help, but it's showed some positive results for people over at the Steam forums if you want to check that out. It won't work miracles for you if it does work (you've got a pretty bad CPU) but it is something to try. America's Army? Nice! Great free shooter right there.
  5. Can I Run The Game With This Rig?

    I run it on a way older setup* at the moment on very low with view settings on highest settings to get the highest frames (40-50 at normal, goes as high as 60 sometimes even 70 on a good day) as possible, so yes, you could run it but most likely not on top High-Medium settings (meaning full med or full high settings). At least not right now with how optimization is (not very good. Look at this bottleneck on i7 & 1080 Ti system). I'd say at 1080p and current patch, you'd at least get a stable 40-50 on most maps on low-medium for sure but you might even get more, especially if you overclock your CPU. I'd suggest, when you get money to do it, putting more RAM into your system though because this game eats it more than Chrome does. Honestly though, you can always just buy the game and test for 2 hours (don't hit 2 hours though!) or 7 days not hitting 2 hours, and issue a refund if you don't like the performance of the game just yet. My specs: i5-4690k 3.8GHz & R9 280 3GB & 16GB RAM*

    Ouch. We really need dem higher optimizations. Can't wait until we get to that point and a super clocked i7 is no longer being bottlenecked on a crazy good system.
  7. Fokke's Battlepics - Highres

    Incredible screenshots! How in the world are you making such cinematic shots? They are amazing!
  8. This is why I sometimes love this game...

    I love it when this happens in a fire fight (sometimes). I know some people find it annoying when it is screamed over the comms, and that is annoying, but sometimes, in just the right situation, it is pretty funny.
  9. OP, please don't be discouraged! I have team killed a few times over when I was new in the daze of large fire fights or a few grenades that were a little too close, and my SLs NEVER kicked me for it, though I was always quick to apologize and explain it was an accident and that I was new. Do not let some a-hole SL or someone who was quick to judge deter you from this game. You just have to stick with it and give the game, and the community, time. Most SLs will understand your mistakes and learning curves, but you also have to understand that most SLs have to deal with people who kill us on purpose because they can so they probably just assumed that's what happened. For them, it gets really, really frustrating. To new players, some times they react quicker than they should which is understandable because they ARE new and they need time to adjust from what they know, and a lot of the times the models are often times way too similar to enemy models (Russian-Americans, anyone?), especially at great distances. This is not to say they shouldn't learn to not shoot immediately or to not learn to adjust or anything, but that you should understand that as new players who probably never played a game like this before, they need help, guidance and patience. To imply that it is impossible to confuse this to make this mistake or something is so condescending and elitist it is beyond obnoxious. It is like the attitude of Xbox 13yr boys. Instead of acting this way, give him some advice, try to help him so that he doesn't make the same mistakes again.
  10. Upgrading parts

    I agree with the others. I'd look at more RAM and the GPU, as the CPU isn't very old at all and isn't very bad (though I'd suggest trying 4.4ghz if you haven't lost the lottery on Haswell).
  11. @Chew_Kok_Long I agree. There's no reason his specs should be under performing so horrendously. I'd say corrupt driver install or some bloatware is the cause. @moppel Have you tried deleting the Squad file in AppData manually (not through the game!) and then restarting Steam to verify your Squad files? If you have, please considering downloading DDU, restarting your PC into Safe Mode and uninstalling your drivers. Then reboot normally and find the latest drivers for your GPU (W10 & W7 64bit) and install them and reboot again. If you have already done those steps and found no help from them, then take a look at your computer temps. Is your CPU or GPU heating up? If they look normal, make sure the game isn't starting off Intel intergrated graphics but your GPU. I believe you can do this through the Nvidia control panel. You can also check whether Squad is using iGPU or GPU in %localappdata%\squad log files. They most likely did spend countless hours pouring over data to offer some sort of optimization so that testing the game is actually possible, but that doesn't mean what I said isn't true and trying to disregard my statement by making it seem like I am throwing their work out as nothing is playing at extremes. What they have released now is not what many in the gaming community (the same who attack AAA companies even) would call "real optimization". There hasn't been any real optimization because it is an alpha and it won't get it for a while. I'll use what I've been saying because isn't inaccurate at all. While they have released some optimization patches, we haven't to this gotten the real optimization yet that comes with beta or even release. I don't see how there is room to argue this. Would you actually call the optimization we have gotten "the real" optimization we're going to get later on when their intent isn't even to offer that just yet (because of alpha status)? No, I should think you wouldn't, unless you have an uber computer and the poor optimization we have right now doesn't bother you whatsoever.
  12. The R9 290 is actually still a really good card. The problem with Squad is optimization. I can't believe some people are actually arguing against it. It is an alpha, after all, with basically no real optimization in it.
  13. A solution to better performance where optimization is failing should never be "upgrade your PC" when optimization itself can fix the problems, though yes, I'm aware they have only done a small part of optimization. That's why I said they aren't as good as they will be post-alpha, as there is very little optimization going on right now. First, cool jump on such weak hardware, that's awesome progress. Second and lastly; optimization is seemingly a lot worse for AMD hardware it appears though. For us, the "lot of people", it gets to be an "ouch" every update. Some updates things don't get worse or slightly better, but in my experience, it almost always gets worse.
  14. If that's the best they can do then ouch for a lot of people. I used to be able to play at High-Epic, now barely low. Game is either getting extremely more demanding every update than it was in June 2016 or optimizations aren't as as good as they will be post alpha.
  15. Hopefully some optimization gets here quick. I realize that it generally comes after alpha, but maybe they'll take pity on us. lol
