  2. Server browser - April 2017

    Gday. Just reinstalled Squad for this weekend free weekend The IN GAME server browser seems to be missing:- Auto ping limit of 200 on displayed servers Missing FRIENDS tab and missing FAV TAB Also when you choose to SORT BY PING I get graphic glitch's , why are we even displaying servers with 400 ping in the list first ? Should servers with LESS then 100 ping by the default listed thing ?
  3. Gday, Can the server browser have a search limit of displaying only games BELOW 175 ping please Also you cant seem to set a server as favorite either
  4. Affordable video editing software

    I recommend to use OBS (Classic or new) to record and encode on the fly to MP4 gameplay footage * MS Movie Maker - Free (Windows only) * Openshot (Windows + Mac + Linux) Free - http://openshot.org/ * Lightworks (Windows+ Mac + Linux) free edition available https://www.lwks.com I use Magix Edit Pro which I picked up on sale on amazon as a code for USD$22 Magix BOUGHT Sony Vegas also in 2016 You can get it cheap from Amazon (BOX or Digital code) MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2016 - USD$25 https://www.amazon.com/MAGIX-Movie-Edit-Pro-2016/dp/B015PIIF80/ Free sound editor: Audacity (Linux/Mac/Windows) https://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/ or a proper FREE DAW Presonus Studio One PRIME (Mac/Windows) https://shop.presonus.com/products/studio-one-prods/Studio-One-3-Prime
  5. 3 hours after Free week-end started

    Might be a good idea to add that to the game displayed in console screen X killed X X team killed X or at least record it server side so the admins have a list of what happened
  6. 3 hours after Free week-end started

    How many hours till the FREE weekend starts ? It is 8:00 AM QLD/AUSTRALIA GMT+10 Friday 11/Nov/2016
  7. Can the server browser be limited to ping below 175 please

    Example of a good well designed server browser for a shooter on PC:-
  8. Anyway to spawn onto bases captured or squad leaders ? Just reinstalled the game Jumped into an server in my country no fob/rally point built I asked via mic can the squad to build a place that I could spawn please and I got :- I cant be bothered building a fob or rally I can see this going to be an asked question on the free weekend that why still you cant spawn on a caped base or squad leader I can see a lot of new commers say , fark it , just go back to Project Argo/Insurgency/Battlefield because of this annoying "feature" of the game
  9. I cant be bothered building a fob or rally from squad leaders

    Gday That was another reason that lead me to give up on this game No bloody medic would res you (Ohh wait that happens in PC BC2+BF3+BF4+BF1 too) but at least in arma 3 + Battlefield you can spawn at the base or squad leader with insurgency you just wait till the next base is cap and secured
  10. Steam Free Weekend & Sale

    Currently AUD$52 (USD$40) on AU Steam store , free weekend plus game for AUD$26 (USD$20) could get a lot of people interested since arma 3 is so laggy, UE4 crowd funded games seem to work really well What a weekend for tactical shooters , we have free weekend for squad and Project Argo announced All we need now is a free weekend for Ground Branch
  11. I came across this great thread on ubisoft forums for PC hardcore fans wanting harder and more tactical elements back into the tom clancy series of course they are claiming we are console bashing Anyone else remember the PROPER tatical Rainbow Six rogue spear and raven shield and GR1 ORG experience ? Its great to see stuff SQUAD , INSURGENCY , Ground Branch and Arma 3 pickup the slack when major AAA companies refuse to listen to hardcore pc fans The Cold Hard Truth For Ubisoft & Constructive Criticism http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1350366-The-Cold-Hard-Truth-For-Ubisoft-amp-Constructive-Criticism
  12. Locked squads Good Idea or bad idea?

    Great idea and should happen in more shooters on PC One of the reasons I can see is when you are playing with clan mates and you want to save a few spots for your friends that will be coming online in 5-15 minutes time or don't have the time/patience to deal with IDI0TS spawning on you and opening up like a t0sser to give away your groups position or maybe you have a jerk that has his mic on voice activate and always transmit with his tv in the background , house noise , dog barking or him breathing or sounding like a squeaky chewtoy annoying voice
  13. People who ask for a RP/FOB

    This is the main reason my clan gave up on this game We were sick and tired of walking for frak1NG MILES in the bloody game I counted how long I had to walk once in game, it was 41 minutes in real life , just to get killed 3 minutes after finding the "squad mates" Not being able to spawn on a squad leader had killed all enjoyment for this game Heck even with Insurgency 2 you stay dead then spawn on once a base is capped in conquest I know the PR purists are like this is PRv2 but I never played PR1 but I have played R6 Rogue Spear , R6 Raven Shield , GR1 ORG , BF1942 , GRAW1/2 , Joint Ops ,BF BC2, Swat 2/3, Arma 3 , Insurgency 2 I know once I had a small rally point I managed to build in a small shack over a ridge of a huge battle people were joining my squad and with text chat and mic myself and another clan mate were asking the pubs to stick around to help build a fob , 5 people joined, none stuck around They all buggered off , one guy went to the window and opened up with an LMG 30 seconds later we are all dead and the guy then goes, why cant i spawn on you we are all stuck at the start of the level again This is not team work based gaming fun , the spawning mechanic seems broken The only way it could work is if you had a squad of 6 to 12 friends vs cpu ai , with a voip server running with good communication because it seems the online pvp battles are no fun, but last time I checked squad didnt support human vs ai battle coop/checkpoint mode Dont get me started with the useless blo00dy medics in the game too that are little upset snowflakes when you ask them to grow a pair and res me instead of running for the hills like a scared little girl....... Do I have to offer a box of candy to get a god damm res in this game too ?
  14. Different FPS on same server?

    Had the same issues with "dedicated" windows arma 3 servers on the net Any games over 20 players would drop frames bad We ended up just playing coop together instead of online pub servers, faster fps I noticed a few builds ago with Squad I got different fps on different maps during the same gameplay session Then the last Squad patch I lost 25-30 fps
  15. Alpha 7.7 Released

    A lot of the guys are now calling this game "walking simulator" , because that is what happens 95% of the time in this game your walking back to the action , then you cant see the enemy that well for some odd reason (at least on old builds) Pretty sure that I and my steam friends are not the only ones finding this issue with the game Ive tired to ask pubs to help stay when they spawn so we can place down a big respawn timber beacon but they just frak off and do their own thing and then abuse us in text chat when we kick them out of the squad
  16. Alpha 7.7 Released

    It has put off myself and most of our clan from now playing this game At least with a game like Insurgency if you happened to die you could spawn back alive once your squad/team has capped the next base , you cant even do that in this game
  17. Alpha 7.7 Released

    99% of the time I have to spawn at the start and walk for miles I actually timed it on match , I walked for 45 real minutes to get to combat
  18. Battlefield 1

    it seems you cant use the VPN trick anymore Mexico price on origin is USD$15 more then USA origin Origin USA is USD$60 for standard Origin AU is AUD$90 for standard Origin AU is AUD$170 for standard + season pass Cheapest Ive seen is AUD$59.20 for standard and on another key site for AUD$65 The Open beta was fun WHEN We could get the party system working and when a single medic on the battlefield actually bloody dropped hp/res'ed The server browser in the game is a joke compared to the fully functional one provided with BF Bad Company 2 on PC Origin looks fugly as sin with the latest update BF WWI Open Beta clearly shows you need limit of 1 TANK per side in RUSH and and SNIPERS removed from RUSH and a max cap of 5 snipers a side in CONQUEST
  19. Alpha 7.7 Released

    Lost about 25 fps with this patch I haven't played in ages but it seems you STILL cant spawn on squad leader and instead you have to waste 5-10mins walking back to the action just to get killed 30 seconds arriving to the area that 3-10 others are hanging out It still a lot of people use over the top radio chatter instead of simple clear teamwork communication eg charlie at 3:30 120degree grid bravo instead of guy over the fence to our left and a bunch coming down that forest to our left
  20. Post Scriptum : The Bloody Seventh

    This looks amazing , by the looks of things I might get more enjoyment from this mod then plain squad It seems on PC we have a huge hole in proper hardcore WWI1/WWI2 games
  21. Battlefield 1

    Charliebrownau plays Battlefield WWI Open Beta PC Ultra 1080p - Cant shake the feeling this is Battlefront WWI - Some core issues still existing:- No one dropping ammo , no no resing , no one drops hp - No commander or core direction to move up and cap - Dust is just plain FRAKING ANNOYING - Once again just like BC2 + BF3 + BF4 the game has TOO MANY useless annoying snipers that NEVER help to cap a base - most weapons are weak as water * Conquest - Round 01 horse/plane/tanks/madness * Conquest - Round 02 * Rush - Round 03
  22. Battlefield 1

    Gday I don't have high hopes for EA ever releasing a proper PC title ever again Titanfall 1 was a let down on PC within 3 months it died on PC BF4 Hardline DLC died after a month on PC in Australia SW BF3 PC died after a month in Australia BF4 PC in Australia is STILL played with SHITHOUSE netcode i ssues, cheating and still wants battlelog Whole bunch of us actually went BACK to BC2 and it is MILES ahead compared to BF3 and BF4 loads of fun , hit rego WORKS and team play is better and maps are designed for mode I saw BF WWI for AUD$41 via VPN instead of AU origins price of AUD$109 for standard If Squad had vechiles and the ability to spawn on your squad leader and more close - medium combat levels similar to BC2 it could replace my fix for Battlefield all together I hope Ground Branch and Insurgency 3 Sandstorm pan out well because those two games I plan to play in 2017-2018
