  1. Will reshade ever make a come back?

    I don't believe there is any benefit from these external hacks which could not be included later in game development. A level playing field is hard enough to achieve with the varied hardware available to users, the efforts of OWI to reduce hacks is commendable. Improvements will certainly come to visuals during development through artwork, increased efficiency to allow more detail and perhaps even some deeper graphical controls within the game settings. No need for external tools. Right now? The game is fun, the graphics are balanced and since everyone is playing on the same system the wins are that much more satisfying.
  2. Steal supplies

    I think this should only be implemented if the supplies are hand carried. So a steal is possible but requires control of the area and manpower to do the work. With the current implementation of button click in a zone to load it would be too annoying to mysteriously lose your aupplies, especially in built up areas.
  3. Overall immersion

    would be happy to see more smoke effects around to vary line of sight within gameplay. additions to this could be starting fires in some static objects to vary the battlefield. barriers: Rivers Walls/Fences Hills/Cliffs/Rocks Open fields covered by enemy Fires/Contaminated zones I don't really care about gore effects. Some tracks could be nice in some situations, eg trampled fields or mud.
  4. Overall immersion

    strange that this made me think of the decline of hiphop
  5. perhaps simply being able to recover a percentage of the used points by deconstructing. Eg Build a HAB and find it is bugged or blocked. Unbuild it and get 50% of the points back. Moving on to a new flag and no longer need the rear fob. Unbuild some stuff, collect the points and drive to the new location.
  6. This is looks bad <----

    buy a 7 year old cpu and gfx card, set settings to medium. easy.
  7. This is looks bad <----

    big spaces, big server load due to player numbers, lots of assets in motion, in development. Gameplay is winning despite all the hurdles above....gamplay is important - in a game. At this stage I think the game is great. Gameplay is fun. Visuals are not distracting. Performance is adequate.
  8. oh yeah i forgot they buffed the damage range of the shells. Fun to use this. Thanks for the range card Joe.
  9. Turns out you can ping squad servers, this is TLR server. C:\Users\suds>ping -t Pinging with 32 bytes of data: Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=40ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=40ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=39ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=40ms TTL=112 Reply from bytes=32 time=40ms TTL=112 Ping statistics for Packets: Sent = 12, Received = 12, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 39ms, Maximum = 40ms, Average = 39ms Control-C ^C C:\Users\suds>
  10. I've been gaming online since the beginning of time so I have strong feelings for a nice low ping. I know plenty about the reasons for increased pings due to variations in routing (distance travelled) and traffic . This is not related to other traffic on my network, it only occurs in squad and even unplugging or disabling all other connections to my router it still occurs. In squad I see about 60 in the server browser and while dead but while moving around I have a varying ping which jumps from 80 to over 200 on most servers I play. This erratic response is effecting my enjoyment, a lot. I gather many of the servers I frequent are in Europe, generally Germany/Netherlands. I play from the UK and a ping between 40 and 60 is normal for me for most games in servers in the UK/Western Europe area. Is there a port number or some information about the network traffic for squad which I can take to my ISP and request priority? Any other suggestions? I am willing to take herbal remedies or lick the toes of a 120 year old rasta if it will make a difference. I can ping and trace routing with very little variation. Is it possible to use ping commands to ping a squad game server if I can find out the IP?
  11. Reshade ban

    Thank you for removing reshade. Winning on a level playing field is genuine satisfaction. [I am better than you] vs [I am better at exploits than you] Implemented in game setting variations can surely replace any perceived benefit to the legitimately bereaved.
  12. Some Idea's for the future.

    try looking up in turret, it seems to move your body down within the armour. Not sure if this is effective but if feels cosy.
  13. Wailing moaning

    ill provide background noise whenever I see you SMee
  14. I am pretty sure backpack does not register bullets. Not sure if they pass through or are blocked. A puff or some reaction would be nice. I fired at a backpack about 1.5m away, stationary. Side of players backpack was visible sticking past the end of a shipping container (door open) his body was concealed behind the container. I was standing still, full stamina, single fire. 3 shots did nothing. These shots were aimed so they would hit backpack from side. Admittedly this should not damage a player but he was very close and had support so I took my chances. I would say definitely but my ping varies 60-160 because of 1960's BT infrastructure. 5 mins from Bristol city centre is "rural"
  15. Some Idea's for the future.

    like crouch in gun turret. indifferent otherwise insurgency needs some love.
  16. I admired the size of a team mates backpack but hadnt considered how mine was giving away my position. i do feel like I am being spotted easier in general. Russians vs US on fools road was giving a nice advantage to hidden russians, not so much not it seems.
  17. Cancel Climbing Animation

    climbing when you just want to jump is also annoying. I'd like to double tap jump to climb. Single should just jump. One workaround seems to be to turn your aim away from the wall, it lets you go on top or back the way you came.
  18. [Solved] How to improve my fps pls help ?

    @drfree123thanks for reporting fix it might help others
  19. New player experience

    I might open an ebay shop which sells awards for squad, would you prefer a subscription model or just a single payment per award? I like: Winning. Being a hero. Tactical genius. Psychology of gamers. Independently taking on more than 4 enemy at the same time (3 is not enough). Delaying an enemy force which would turn the battle against my team. Winning with a disadvantage (eg techie vs armour). Laughing about events on the battlefield. Jumps, barrel rolls and forward flips. Full speed through forests without hitting anything. I don't need a prize but I do think end of round stats would be fun.
  20. Volume Keybind For Radio

    i have a volume control on the cable for my headset.
  21. I have always used TFGH as my movement keys. T= Forward G= Back(this allows more space either side) Change was easy in V10 as in other Alpha releases just using the interface. Left Click the command you want to change, then press the button you want to use. If it wont work you may want to delete or rename your "Saved" folder, search the forum for APPDATA
  22. Have you had this bug in v10?

    Gun invisible happened to me when revived after being killed while on a wall. I appeared on the opposite side of the wall to where the medic who revived me was. I asked if others could see my gun and they said no. I could fire, it made a sound, but no idea if bullets came out, ran in and died. US LMG was equipped (the open one not the special one).
  23. Report Abusive Players?

    i think you misunderstood. You also edited my sentence in your quote. I am saying that racists are feeling braver now because of recent political blips in the UK and in the US , not that they have suddenly appeared. I have been gaming online since it started, there is more racism apparent now than there was 2 years ago. Name and shame.
