  1. Release: Alpha Version 9.6

    What are the little snowflakes doing playing a fps anyway?
  2. Release: Alpha Version 9.6

    This building FOBs with ammo resources already associated needs to go like cooker FOBs have to stop the exploitation. I just hope the push back doesn't lead to players taking the 'easy way out' just to resupply. I understand the game is in alpha and sometimes you need to use the suicide command but in the future there needs to be some form of punishment to restrict its use. If they were to give the rifleman extra ammo he can deploy I hope it's just 9 / 5.56 / 7.62 rounds and not any form of explosives (RPG, Frag or 40mm). He should also be limited in what he could dish out before he needs to resupply at a FOBs ammo crate or vehicle as well, using up those extra resources from the crate / vehicle. I wouldn't mind seeing vehicles as limited mobile ammo crates to see how that pans out.
  3. Another WW2 game enters the fight

    I actually thought the brief animation looked pretty good which was my first thoughts. I have not gone back and studied them though. However I believe you're right that they were trained to run with the rifle in one hand which is something RO does. It actually helps with target identification at range if you know allies run with both hands holding their rifle and axis with one.

    It's cool . Sometimes it hard to tell on the internetz how people are thinking without a face.
  5. Release: Alpha Version 9.6

    You believe it happens that way IRL? Or do you think the guy carries some handy little bags and gets the sand from somewhere else like......the ground maybe?
  6. AMD is worst for Squad

    They did that without Microsoft and a proper computer. If you use a computer for work you'll know they don't make things any more efficient.
  7. AMD is worst for Squad

    It's certainly uses one core heavily, the others it's hard to tell what is the game or background OS. The load perhaps could be shared a better in this current day but is that the devs fault or the engine? I don't know. I am sure there are things the devs can do (animations) to gain performance but they need usually need doing as the game is developed. What I do know is the devs are developing a game in an alpha state while allowing early access for their target players to help provide constructive feedback on a game engine that is still in development itself. That's a brave thing to do with the way people can hide behind the internet when they don't like something. If you visit PUBG forums there are loads of comments on its performance as well. I don't think Squads performance trouble is purely down to the dev team.
  8. AMD is worst for Squad

    There I corrected that for you. What other UE4 based titles are you getting stellar performance from? Ark? PUBG?
  9. AMD is worst for Squad

    There are loads of things to consider. Improved ballistics More complex animations LoD / Game engine view distancing Physics tick rates + loads of backend stuff I wouldn't know enough to comment about as I am not a developer. Games get increasingly more complex as hardware improves and devs can take advantage of that extra horsepower. Even today devs want to include things but are tied by their expected hardware requirements. So going back and comparing one game to it's father isn't really a great comparison.
  10. Transfer Squad Leader status to another squad member

    Yeah the devs beat you to it.
  11. Transfer Squad Leader status to another squad member

    Already a thing. Try it.
  12. Release: Alpha Version 9.6

    I know it's a pain in the ass but you can move another game to a different drive, update Squad and then move the other game back again. Had to do that a few times lately as my SSD is getting full. As for the stance indicator all it needs is a simple little dot to indicate you're crouched. If it isn't there you must be standing and we can all tell if you're prone.
  13. AMD is worst for Squad

    If we jump forward about 15 years do you think the hardware then will run Squad well? If it was still just a one horse CPU fight for intel it probably wouldn't . Quoting an ancient game engine as a point of reference maybe technically be correct but isn't really helpful in gauging Squads performance in the current market.
  14. Squad: 9.6 Preview Trailer

    They have eased somewhat of late with the new man in charge for reasons yet to be proven. We can't do politics on here so no need to go further.
  15. AMD is worst for Squad

    @RaTzo I know right. I still have my 3770k @4.5 and there is no major upgrade worth it currently. That problem exists due to the lack of competition from AMD. They're back now though but only because of the multicore / multithreaded nature of todays software is starting to catch up and play to those strengths. However Coffee Lake looks very interesting for the end of the year though. Whether its speed is coming from just an increased physical core count to 6 or it has some genuine improvement in IPC over Kaby Lake remains to be seen. Hopefully it's the best of both.
