  1. Backer Tag Redeem!

    You will notice a Link Steam Account link in the top menu of the forums, next to Discord. Click this and login with your steam account that you redeemed your Perk keys on. Once redeemed you will get a status message before a redirect on any perks you own. After doing this you will start seeing your backer / founder tag on posts. If you were a Squad Leader backer or above you will now have a new option in your profile section to add your in-game name to the credits. Go to your profile, click edit and scroll down to the bottom. You will see a new field below the About Me section. Add your in-game name there and we will add you to the credits later. Make sure your name is appropriate or it will not be added into the credits. NOTE: The steam login is done via oauth so we never see your login information. It is done directly on the steam website. Make sure you have activated the latest key code before trying to link your forum account. Keys with the inventory items were sent to your email used to back the game.

  3. Please post any ideas or feature requests you have here.
  4. You can now use the steam server browser by clicking on Steam -> View -> Servers -> Change Filters and select Squad as the game. You guys can use this if you would like to have auto-retry to join full servers.
  5. Server Health

    Hello Squaddies! OWI has added in the ability to see server health from the server browser. This will help players find a server that is performing well that they want to join. Currently it shows live server performance. In the browser, you will see a Red, Yellow, or Green icon which relates to how well the server is performing. We will be enabling this feature remotely shortly, so that server owners can prepare their servers hardware for the Alpha 8 release. We hope this will also help server owners monitor their servers for performance issues. This is also a very useful feature for the end user, as they don't have to join as many servers, looking for one with good performance. In addition to the server browser feature, you can now see the performance icon by looking at the scoreboard in game. This will let you know if the server is performing bad, or if it is your client. Servers in the Yellow category may see issues along the lines of vehicle slowness, users rubber banding and VOIP issues. Licensed servers should remain in the Green. Servers in the Red, will be pretty much unplayable. There may be times when it may go into the red or yellow but the majority of a full server should remain in the green. It is also important to remember that performance can lower as a round progresses due to the increase of placed deployables, as will as the amount of firefights and players in close proximity increasing. Servers not up to the performance standards may lose their license until the performance issues can be resolved. If you have any questions feel free to post here or in our discord! Happy Fragging!
  6. Why is development so slow? / prioritization

    Uniforms are done by the art team, not programmers. Adding N wheeled vehicles and stuff is a must in order to get the systems in place to improve vehicles. The things you think are minuscule are in fact MAJOR for the continuation and production of Squad. Things have to be done in order, otherwise we will be having to undo things later on which would be a waste of man hours. The animations are a must as well to improve performance, so in our book, this is major.
  7. Squad Alpha V9

    Don't you need something to fastrope from?
  8. As long as you dont yammer on about random stuff and stick to the game tasks and talking about the objectives, there will be no issue with players. Regardless of that, we have rules of no bullying and such so server admins should be banning people that are creating an un fun playing environment. Nordic is 12 and he plays all the time and I'm not aware of anyone bullying him.
  9. Squad Alpha V9

    oh no he dinant...
  10. Lost server license key

    Unfortunately not, we dont keep the private key available as that would be insecure. The best we could do is reset your license which would issue you a new key. If you could visit https://support.joinsquad.com and fill out a ticket with your license information (server name and contact email) we can get that reset for you.
  11. RCON Tool?

    yes, it is built on the RCON valve protocol
  12. Fatal errors ?!?!?!

    Do you have any crash dumps?
  13. RCON Tool?

  14. TROPICAL THUNDER (WIP)

    throws boxers
  15. help

    https://offworldindustries.zendesk.com/hc/en-us and look at the Easy Anticheat Errors section
  16. Server Browser Crash Again!

    There is an article on http://support.joinsquad.com on how to fix this.
  17. Back up your stuff online!

    use a data recovery application to see if you can recover any of the files.
  18. Fatal errors are still with us :(

    please send us your crash dumps and logs.
  19. possible fix "loading screen"

    this was an EAC issue, should be resolved now.
  20. Yes the lose tickets. But think of it like this. Do you want to destroy an enemy vehicle for a some tickets and have it respawn back for them, or leave it out in the field where they cannot get to it? Its a strategy that need to be determined by the SL.
  21. Server not in server list

    i believe it is the port. there are 3 ports you need to unblock I believe and they are listed on the wiki. Those are the default ports listed on the wiki so you will have to specify the ports with the commandline parameters.
  22. Server Admin, hold slot open

    it keeps the score and other info but will not hold the slot reserved for them.
  23. Very long loading time

    The first time you launch after an update it takes awhile. But after that it opens fairly quick, even on HDD.
  24. Audio lag temp fix

    If you are on AMD and notice lag issues when players are using comms. Please go into settings and disable all audio effects as a temporary fix!
  25. Will we get audio cues for friendly fire?

    Unless you see a message in game that says "xxx teamkilled you" then you were not team killed.
