  1. Damn it guys, I want a silencer on my sniper rifle so I can get a great k/d while out lone wolfing and no one will know I am there. It'll be great fun for me.
  2. Is there a memory leak in V11?

    Afterburner does a great job of graphing your ram usage if you want to keep an eye on it. Do you have a SSD for your OS (page file). Is Squad installed on it? That freezing could be Windows dealing with a memory leak. It'll be more obvious if you're using a slower drive. Background programs like Chrome can also use excessive amounts of ram and are notorious for memory leaks so you might want to eliminate those from your leak hunt.
  3. Limited Alpha 12 Test Oct 10th

    That's a great reference pic. Having stood next to a few different ww2 tanks I'm truely surprised how compact the modern mbt actually is.
  4. Limited Alpha 12 Test Oct 10th

    @SpecialAgentJohnson What about scale? The videos I've seen make the MBTs look smaller than I'd expect them to be. Never been next to any modern MBT but the MRAP seems like a giant in comparison.
  5. Just make the key to fire coax rebindable and not have to switch ammo type to do so. Problem solved for everyone.
  6. Low GPU and CPU usage with i7-6700 and gtx 1070

    If those are the figures you get playing Squad and other games I believe you have a problem. Your going to have to do some diagnosis. Check your Bios settings to confirm it's all as is should be. CPU clock speed, ram timings etc. As both cpu and gpu seem understressed it could be a ram issue. Check you have the latest Bios version for your motherboard. Next I would test your components individually. Use something like CPU-Z to stress your cpu and see if it's responding correctly on all cores and the clock speeds are ramping up to there max (4ghz for the 6700 I think). CPU-Z should tell you your ram speed and timings but you should also run so diagnostics on it. Windows key + R keyboard shortcut, type mdsched.exe, and click OK to launch the Windows memory tool. Use something like GPU-Z or MSI Afterburner and test your gpu to make sure it is performing correctly. Clock speeds, temps etc. If all your hardware is fine I'd move to drivers. Personally I use Driver Booster to help keep most of my PC drivers up to date. I prefer to get my gpu driver direct from Nvidia but the rest I allow DB to source and update for me and don't have any problems. Make sure you change its setting to stop it loading and staying resident though. Good luck.
  7. Low GPU and CPU usage with i7-6700 and gtx 1070

    Squad won't use all the cores efficiently in a multicore CPU. Your i7 has 4 cores + 4 hyperthreaded cores so you 'effectively' have 8 cores. If 3 of those cores are stressed 100% with the other 5 doing next to no work your CPU usage could easily show 40% even though Squad is trying to extract the maximum from your CPU. i.e. don't take overall CPU usage as a measure of how a game is stressing your CPU. Check out the individual core load using something like Afterburner or Task Manager before concluding it's a possible CPU issue. The GPU is another matter though. It should be processing and delivering frames as quickly as it's fed the data to do so (CPU, RAM & storage are key for that to happen). Your GPU should be at or close to 100% utilization unless you have an imbalanced PC or you have a software/OS/driver issue. i7 6700+16 Gb DDR4+GTX 1070+SSD seems a great combination and you should be getting nice fps at 1080p, certainly above 60 fps. You might have a hardware issue. Does the PC work in other games etc? Check all your fans are working and free off dust. You might have a software issue - defunct configuration, drivers, corrupt game files. I personally would start by clearing the games cached user data files (bottom of game setting) and getting Steam to verify the game files. That's the main cause of poor performance.
  8. Pasted my 3k

    Well done. Not sure whether to applaud your dedication or acuse you of having far to much free time to clock up 3k hours in game. ;-)
  9. Nvidia RTX in Squad?

    The AI is used for deep learning anti aliasing and looks to provide a good boost.
  10. Nvidia RTX in Squad?

    I don't think this (new) generation of RTX cards will run Squad very well using RT so I would have to say it won't be used anytime soon. Didn't you find it strange Nvidia never gave out any gaming benchmarks? Lets see what they're like once in the hands of the tester. I bet they're not much more than 20-25% faster in games than the current 1000 series cards and that's without flipping over to RT.
  11. BE the CHANGE that you WANT to see in SQUAD

    Three little letters. I.E.D. Automation won't work.
  12. I really dislike these type of threads that 'criminalise' those with progressive hardware because they may have an advantage. What next you want us all caped to 60fps because those with higher end gpus have the advantage of frame rate. I am sure your 980ti is already giving you an advantage over other players. Having the best hardware is not about gaining an advantage but getting the best experience for your finances. The only way you're going to have a somewhat level playing field is if you game on console. Even now that's getting messed up with keyboard & mouse support and tweaked version of the current gen console
  13. BE the CHANGE that you WANT to see in SQUAD

    All theories. Proof is in the pudding as they say.

    I find people that prefer voice activation over PTT usually like the sound of their own voice to much.
  15. BE the CHANGE that you WANT to see in SQUAD

    Medic role will change soon. It won't be that he has to find and resuscitate every downed player. Teammates will be able to do that also. Resurrected players will be seeking out medics soon for healing. Playing as a medic and getting downed will not mean having to take a respawn as teammates will be able to get you up. Will that mean medics will play a bit more risky without the need to babysit so much? Only time will tell.
  16. Project reality : Battlefield 3

    already being discussed here........
  17. Battlefield 3 Project Reality mod

    Is there a link to follow this project?
  18. Razor Wire

    It should have a random chance to get stuck in it as well as a deterrent to players just pushing through it knowing they only lose a small portion of health. Or even start players bleeding out and needing to bandage.
  19. Squad vs Insurgency

    Apparently not. Insurgency Sandstorm is suffering from a big performance hit using scopes just like Squad did. JackFrags was making complaints about it in his recent vid.
  20. July 2018 Recap

    Playing for the team and winning is ultimately the reason to play but you still need to judge your performance so you know if you've played well /improving. I don't remember the number of revives I've made in a round as medic but do enjoy knowing how much of a contribution I've made for the team in the end if I've had a busy round. It'll be the same for logistics drivers. They'll need some way of judging their performance or they just won't be bothered to do it and we'll all be wishing someone will. Public games can also be very hit and miss with the quality of your team. Even if my team loses I take pleasure from seeing a good squad score and knowing we did our best.
  21. July 2018 Recap

    You shouldn't go building a game on wishes though. They're more likely to play logistics if there is an incentive. Seeing a logi score and gauge how well you did compared to your last game and even letting other now how much of a contribution you've made to a team win are pretty strong incentives. Those with potato PCs who have a hard time shooting can make a big difference playing logi.
  22. July 2018 Recap

    Nice update. Thanks Gatzby. Not sure I like the idea of crewman only having access to the repair kits. Can we not have a kit on vehicles you can retrieve as a regular soldier. Vehicles are going to become very important due to the persistent ammo changes and having to rely on a crewman to come and fix up a vehicle is going to severely hamper teams. It's a similar deal to how medics operate but with vehicles instead although crewmen will be much harder to find.
  23. With localised damage to vehicles and maybe a decrease in their survivability against LAT/HAT I don't see a big downside to persistent ammo. The vehicle might not have to worry about that LAT guy respawning at a nearby RP but it may be pretty badly damaged and possibly can't move. We've really got to see how it plays out. The joys of Alpha I suppose. I don't really like the push towards logistics playing such a major role for infantry squads at this time as it hasn't in the past and I've had a lot of fun but I am open to see how it pans out. Overall it's a more realistic side to warfare that can be a deciding factor in any battle. Playing logistics is going to become as important as playing medic in keeping an advance rolling. OWI had better find a way to reward those fulfilling a logistics role so they can judge if they had a good game.

    Yeah. Recap or I won't go medic.
