  1. Hello Squaddies, It is of utmost urgency that I come to you today asking for your help collecting 2K , 3K and (preferably) 4K screenshots of public multiplayer gameplay on EPIC settings. You can do this in game while playing by typing in highresshot4 in your console. With this console command the Unreal Engine will render a 4K resolution screenshot no matter what resolution you are playing the game in (1080P or whatever). if you have a macro system running, you can take screenshots without disturbing your gaming. make a macro that brings up the console (tilde "`" key on English keyboards) and then types disablehudwidgets and then presses Enter brings up the console (tilde "`" key on English keyboards) and then types disableui and then presses Enter brings up the console (tilde "`" key on English keyboards) and then types in "highresshot 4" (without the quotes) and then presses Enter. brings up the console (tilde "`" key on English keyboards) and then types disablehudwidgets and then presses Enter brings up the console (tilde "`" key on English keyboards) and then types disableui and then presses Enter ` disablehudwidgetsEnter` disableuiEnter` highresshot 4Enter` disablehudwidgetsEnter` disableuiEnterScreenshots are saved at C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Squad\Saved\Screenshots\WindowsNoEditor Upload them to somewhere that DOES NOT COMPRESS IMAGES. Google Drive or Dropbox or similar. ( Imgur = Bad, compresses all uploads for example) This is for some publicity as we move into Early Access. What we are most looking for is in game footage of the new factions, Russia and Militia, and the new maps, Sumari, Fools Road, Chora, new map layers, etc. Thank you in advance for the help, Litoralis High Resolution Shot The high resolution screenshot console command is a great cross-platform tool for taking very high resolution screenshots. It can be used to generate screenshots of any size that are based off of the screen resolution (or window resolution if the game is running in window mode). The high resolution screenshot console command does this by rendering the game frame multiple times, one tile at a time at full resolution and concatenating all tiles into a single image file. The default behavior is to take a screenshot with a resolution 4 times greater than the game resolution and create an image file in the Screenshot folder. When running the game through the editor (PIE) or as standalone, open the command console by hitting ~ (tilde) and type: HighResShotParameters The HighResShot console command takes an optional parameter that can be either an integer number that is a multiplier of the current game's resolution or a 'WxH' value that sets width and height resolution explicitly. Typing the following will take a screenshot that is twice as big as the screen resolution: HighResShot 4Similarly, the command below will take a screenshot at 3840 wide by 2160 high: HighResShot 3840x2160highresshot 2highresshot 3highresshot 4DEFAULT SAVE LOCATION Windows 7 and 8 (not sure about Windows 10) C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Squad\Saved\Screenshots\WindowsNoEditoradd your Windows username in the [username] location. P.S. And of course you guys who play at 4K native at Epic settings, use whatever screenshot program you prefer, and send me some pics please. P.P.S. If you use a keyboard layout where ` is not your console key, you can assign a console key by editing the very last line of this file to a key that works for you: steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Config\DefaultInput.ini ConsoleKey=None-ConsoleKeys=Tilde+ConsoleKeys=Tilde
  2. If you have an MSI motherboard and or use the dreaded program "Atheros Killer Network Manager," that is the culprit. However, you still need it for your internet to work. The solution: [ Follow these steps in exact order or lose your internet connection! ] 1. Download the standard drivers http://www.killernetworking.com/support/driver-downloads/standard-drivers http://www.killernetworking.com/support/driver-downloads/standard-drivers 2. Completely uninstall Killer Network Manager 3. To install the standard drivers, you must go to your device manager, hold the windows key and press "R" type or paste: devmgmt.msc hit enter look under the header "Network Adapters" to find your network adapter which should have a yellow exclamation on it after uninstalling the manager, and update the drivers by selecting the standard driver folder. You must install the basic Atheros drivers without the manager. I hope this proves the be the solution for everyone.
  3. So I've seen a good number of people from the Southern Hemisphere join the forums, and I want to give a big shout out to you all. I know it's harder to find each other to build communities for FPS games than in the Americas, Europe and Asia, so I was hoping you guys could use this as your corner of the forums to talk about your existing gaming communities, websites, servers, rugby and whatever else you want. (I'm just guessing you all didn't come here from existing Aussie PR communities, but I'm not sure)
  4. PM me with as much info as you can Thamos, we'll have a chat about it.
  5. Missing the sound in the game

    ATM Squad only uses the Windows Audio Mixer selected default Input and default Output devices. So before you start Squad, make sure the correct audio output is selected as your default. Start Squad. alt-tab back to desktop. Open Windows Audio Mixer. Make sure to select your default output device, then make sure Squad is not set to 0% volume. If using win10, here is how to get your audio mixer back: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/get-the-old-windows-volume-mixer-back-in-windows-10/
  6. Alpha 8

    I heard a rumour about velociraptor DLC
  7. Update: Alpha 7 Major Changes Preview

    The info I added was in correct, based on a prior idea, let's try this: markers have no visual distance to them that is dependent on the watcher. All squad members can see updated markers for the first 5 seconds of placing them. orienteering in games ftw.

How to turn off vsync in editor/game for local testing :https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?10981-How-can-i-cancel-the-mouse-movement-lag-in-the-game-editor---------------------You can disable mouse smoothing in the Advanced properties of the Mouse Properties section in your project's Input Settings.In the Input Settings you can also set the Sensitivity and Exponent to 1 in the Axis Config section. Finally there is an Enable FOV Scaling property in the player input. However, now that I look at it, that property really needs to be moved to the InputSettings too so it can be edited in the project settings which I will do right away (which means it will make it in to the 4.2 build)from: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?3041-quot-RAW-INPUT-quot-option-for-us-none-coders------------------------------------
  10. 20-30 Minute Game Mode?

    *cough* I put in over 1000 hours into America's Army 2. Z-Trooper and I have been bouncing around a few similar ideas for a long time. I'm sure if the devs do not get to it first, a modder will be able to rewrite the gamemode BPs to make it happen.
  11. Alienware x51r2

    the mITX GTX970s seem to be the card of choice, underclocked. the GTX960 (and the 1060 was leaked last week) are easy choices.
  12. USB headset mic not working with Squad

    what is your exact make and model of USB headset? quick list of troubleshooting ideas: 1. make sure your USB headphones are set as Audio output default device [done] 2. turn off any type of software based surround sound that came with the headphones, i.e. Logitech or Razer software or similar. 2a. Set it to 2.0 headphone Audio 3. If you have any type of 3.5mm speakers/headphones, plug them in real quick and test. Worth a try here. 4. \Steam\steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Config\DefaultInput.cfg Open it in notepad you should see this toward bottom of the file: MasterVolume=1.000000 EffectsVolume=1.000000 UIVolume=0.500000 MusicVolume=1.000000 VoiceVolume=1.000000 bApplyVoiceRadioFilter=True LocalVoIPVolume=1.000000 UnfocusedVolumeMultiplier=0.500000 Make sure the settings are set to that and then restart Squad to test. Please let me know if any of this fixes your issue,

  14. UK leaves EU and Prime Minister resigns

    By UN number crunching, Sweden will be a third world country within 20 years. So probably not a good long term plan for the Swedes and the replacement population when the native Swedes all emigrate/flee. http://ww.rrojasdatabank.info/HDRP_2010_40.pdf
  15. UK leaves EU and Prime Minister resigns

    My thoughts are that this is going to adversely affect Berlin Paris and Amsterdam much worse than London. London is now free of the truly insane economic regulations coming out of Brussels, meaning the London markets can now move forward becoming the Western banking center for Chinese capital investment, can now become the undisputed leader in halal investment vehicles, can outmaneuver and be much much more nimble than the Germans in regards to trade flows, currency flows, and barriers to trade and barriers to market entry. Oh, and London just became the world center for insurance and reinsurance. Paris' growing insurance center is dead within 10 years again. The ripples going forward will bounce off of 27 member states and 20+ subergions looking for independence in the EU for many many years, while the UK will have simple straight forward problems that can and will be readily and quickly solved. To put it bluntly, as a whole Scotland is a beggar social welfare state, if they choose to remove themselves from the UK, the subsidies from the EU will never be equal or greater than the subsidies from Westminster, and the representation and ability to lobby for sustained longterm subsidies (social welfare to corporate and everything in between) will be multitudes more difficult in Brussels than London. On top of that, the Labour Party in the UK and Scotland (and the SNP) have a perverse incentive to make sure Scotland remains in the UK. The national Labour party ceases to exist if Scotland leaves the Union. Heck, even the SNP winning in 2015 was less costly longterm to the Labour Party than the total and permanent loss of the Scottish voter base. The SNP would have to actually govern a state in a permanent account deficit and no forseeable industry to ever repay debts, you think the UK going from AAA to AA is bad, independent Scotland would be on par with Bosnia and Herzegovina at a B or BB rating. And finally, some sort of sane immigration system might stop the abuse by corporations and employers putting employees unto social welfare, shifting the burden of employment back from the taxpayers to the employers, while also stabilizing the wage base for the 50%+ of British workers who work in the private sector and outside of white collar jobs.
  16. Hello Squad fans. The Dev Team has a favor to ask of the community. We are in need of raw B-roll footage of the gameplay.

  17. Where Do HiResShots Save to?

    Paul is correct for default Windows installs, if you happen to move your profile directories to a second partition or drive you can always find it here: %LOCALAPPDATA%\Squad\Saved\Screenshots\WindowsNoEditor
  18. V5 Performance on Intel CPU's?

    @DrunkMonk74 Could you post which version of directx you have installed so we can have it on record? ( run dxdiag as one way to find it quickly) thanks for posting the results of your experiments.
  19. List of active clans and communities

    UPDATED.
  20. Only zoom INSIDE the optics

    Z-Trooper put a great deal of effort into finding a PiP solution a few months ago. At this time Z-trooper has implemented working systems for FOUR separate scope systems regularly seen in first person FPS, and he and the devs are comfortable using the current system for the time being. It might or might not be revisited at some point in the future. I am sure the current scoped implementation will continue to evolve.
  21. New account issues?

    If you are getting Error code 2S129/1 - "You are not permitted to register a user account with this site.", it is related to the IPB spam service. If you have hit this error, please do not try to register with the same email multiple times as increased failures to create an account with the same email will further escalate your status as a spammer. If you are trying to register a new account on the site and are still facing issues even with the changes, please email [email protected] . The issue will be investigated within 24-48 hours.
  22. 980 problems (Other games then squad)

    try to stress test the GPU (MSI Kombustor) and CPU (your choice) at the same time and see if you have any issues. might be your 12V rail on your PSU is degrading. reseat your GPU, and GPU power cables. some random things to check again.
  23. We're done with this thread. The game is agnostic toward the sexual orientation of the player. Either you enjoy the art or you can go find a game with art you enjoy in any of the other 10,000+ games on Steam.
  24. Squad reviews on WorldbestFPS blog gets favorable review

    I used to argue with Michelle Malkin that is was extremely declasse for her to be hawking her new political blog on webforums and bulletin boards while talking about herself and her writings in third person. She got famous and rich from it, so maybe criticofgames is on to something here and we're just out of touch old fogies. I mean, LeBron James talks about himself in the third person all the freaking time, seems to work for him: http://mic.com/articles/111300/the-psychological-case-for-talking-in-the-third-person#.t5VYARU2n
