Forum Rules 07/06/2016Introduction The Squad Team reserves the right to edit, update, add and remove rules at any time. Applicable rules extend to the PM system. Your PMs are private, but the Squad Team may be informed about unacceptable PM content by the receiving party. Section I: Posting Rules §1 Show Respect This community can only work if we all respect each other. To that end, it is imperative that any time you engage with another user, either directly or indirectly, you show them respect with the content of your post. In particular refrain from flaming, insulting, abusing, taunting, racism, and other similar types of actions towards other forum users. §2 Attitude & Behavior Poor attitude and behavior are the most common ways a negative / unsafe environment is created and perpetuated. As such that kind of behavior will not be allowed on these forums. Please be mindful of this rule when posting personal positions and opinions regarding topics which could be considered contentious in nature. As a rule of thumb, keep your posts civil in nature, and refrain from making posts that are likely to incite arguments and create a negative environment. As a privately hosted web forum we reserve the right to maintain an environment that we are happy the majority of our players are comfortable with. §3 Swearing While we will not strictly moderate every little swear that occurs, please try to avoid excessive bad language. The moderation reserves the right to remove rants and unsuitable content at any time. §4 Illegal Topics
Prohibited topics include, but are not limited to: Piracy, drugs (including cannabis), pornography, religion, racism, sexism, homo/trans -phobic content, videos and images showing violent death or serious injury, ‘spam threads’, hacking & griefing (endorsement thereof), religion, politics, etc. Prohibition may be suspended for some threads if they are found to be suitable by the Moderation (such as scientific debate).
If there is doubt, the Moderation Team can decide whether a topic is considered illegal. §5 Attitude towards Squad and the Development Team
As per §1 and §2, keep in mind to be respectful and reasonable, not only towards all users of the forum, but also towards the Squad Team and towards any ideas and content and the game itself. Criticism is welcome, but if it is not constructive and/or if it is offensive, the Moderation may need to step in. Please refrain from posting if you are upset, angry or drunk, or you may be punished for things you wouldn’t have otherwise written, which is not in anyone's interest. §6 Language & Legibility
Please post only in English. Non-English content (including non-legible content) may be removed. If you see someone posting in another language because s/he apparently does not speak English, please report their post - if you can, you may reply in their language to explain their question, but please do translate their and your message so it can be reviewed by the Moderation. ‘Hiding’ insults in non-English posts will be punished harshly. Posts written largely in ‘leetspeak’ or full of spelling / grammatical errors may be treated like non-English content. This rule does not extend to PMs. §7 Forum structure & Search
Please ensure when posting a new thread, that the thread is located inside the correct forum section. Check all forum section titles to judge where your thread should belong. Threads created in the wrong forum section will be moved or deleted.
Before posting a new thread, please make use of the forum search to find older threads about the same topic. In doubt, it is recommended to rather post in an existing thread, unless that thread is years out of date. However, do not bump old threads without adding a new question / answer / insight that wasn’t in that thread before - use common sense. §8 Thread Titles
Please name your thread appropriately; the subject title should sum up / explain the content in the thread. If you fail to name your thread properly (such as ‘Hey!’ or ‘Check this out!’ or ‘Help!’), we will either rename or lock the topic. Repeated offense may lead to infractions. The practice of using CAPITALS only in your thread title is not allowed and will be edited or the thread will simply be deleted. Strange or abnormal Unicode characters should be excluded from thread titles for the sake of being distracting and unnecessary.
§9 Thread Capitalization
Please ensure that your post is not in all CAPITALS, as this is not allowed. Any threads posted in all caps will subsequently be removed from the forum. Repeated offenses may lead to infractions against your account. This practice is not approved or accepted here.
§10 Images in posts
When posting images, mind the following restrictions:
.gifs will be allowed and may be removed by Staff if deemed necessary.
Maximum size for images is 1280x1024.
Do not include more than ~1 large image per paragraph of text, unless in image collection / announcement threads. Link to further images.
Consider posting thumbnails. You may post a few more images per post if they are reasonably small, the details are for the Moderation to judge. §11 The use of BBCode
It is allowed to use the BBCode in your posts. Over usage is not allowed. You may use the Bold in a reasonable manner but not for the whole text body. You may use the size feature but in a limited reasonable manner. You may not use any of the additional fonts at all. Color may be used to high light a point but again, not for the whole text body. Moderators will be watching for misuse and will edit when required without giving notice. Continued disregard for this rule will result in Moderator action in the form of warnings. §12 Complaints of Server/Admin Abuse Reports of server/admin abuse will not be posted publicly. All reports concerning this type of behavior should be place in the appropriate sub-forum. http://forums.joinsquad.com/forum/241-report-server-admin-abuse/ All posts made outside of this area will be be removed. Section II: Reporting & Moderation §1 Reporting Posts
There is a Post Report system in place. If you notice a post that violates forum rules, simply use the exclamation mark icon below the users avatar image to send a report to the Moderation. We will then review this post. Your report will not be made public and cannot be linked to your person by anyone outside of the Squad Team. You will not be punished for using the Report system even if the report was false, unless you repeatedly abuse the system to spam it.
Do not ‘report’ posts by replying directly in public to them. In case of spambots, this prompts them to respond in turn, spamming the forum further. This also fuels flame wars and arguments. §2 Reporting Moderators
Moderators are subject to the same forum rules (and some additional rules / exceptions). If you think that a Moderator has treated you unfairly or is otherwise breaking forum rules, please PM the Lead Moderator or any Administrator. Do not accuse Moderators in public, the Squad Team will treat every complaint seriously and it is in our interest to discipline or remove Moderators who are known to break forum rules. §3 Respect Squad Team members and Moderators
Do not ignore or argue against Admin, Moderator or Dev instructions on the forum. If you have a complaint, as per §2, please inform the Team in private. You are expected to follow orders given by the Moderation, Administration and Development Team, and it is necessary for smooth running of the forum to respect their decisions. Being stubborn or ignoring warnings will lead to harsher punishments - however, we do not tolerate Moderator / Admin abuse of power / privileges, so do not hesitate to inform other Team members if you feel treated unfairly. §4 Bans and multiple accounts
If your account is temporarily or permanently banned, do NOT create another account. Bypassing a ban will result in further action, and a permanent ban of all of your accounts.
You are not allowed to have more than one account for any reason. If you share an internet connection with another user who has their own account, it might happen that this account is incorrectly identified as a secondary account - please get in touch with the Moderation or Administration to resolve such issues.

Mongol posted a topic in Hardware Tech SupportHello everyone, I have gotten the game maybe about a week ago and first off I loaded into the Firing Range. After enjoying myself and tweaking around with my graphic options, it began to smell a little bit funny, I started up SpeedFan and saw my GPU at 97°C! Shortly after I closed Squad, let my system cool off, shut it down to check if there was dust in the Fans and what not and even checked if the Fans were running in the first place. I then tweaked around with graphic options some more and I came to notice that the reason for this temperature increase is Post Processing. My GPU runs it well at ~83°C until I turn Post Processing even to just medium, it jumps to 90°C. I did not feel comfortable going above High where it hit 92°C and I just closed the game in fear of the VRAM just exploding. All that while the game runs like a dream at 80FPS. Is there any Hotfix to this? My Specs : R9 280X 3GB ( Sapphire Toxic version ) i5-6600k ( overclocked ) 16gb DDR4 A good airflow inside my PC, I could keep Brownies warm at the back exit!
As much as I want to get a shiny new GTX 980Ti, I've decided to wait for the next generation. Maxwell cards have been great (besides the 970 snafu) and I've been a Nvidia user since I switched from a ATI 4850. Anyways, is anyone else excited for Pascal? It seems like we finally get a die shrink from 28nm to 16nm. Woot! http://www.fudzilla.com/news/graphics/38304-nvidia-pascal-gpu-has-17-billion-transistors
shaneclipse97 posted a topic in Software SupportPlease only weigh in if you are a more advanced user running some kind of monitoring software and have some decent pc know how..Would like this one to be short and sweet with no confusing opinions or data please
So I was thinking about treating myself to a new GPU this Christmas and have my eye on a couple but cant decide which would be best to get Here are the options: - Asus GTX970 Strix or - Radeon R9-290 My current specs are a Radeon HD7750 GPU, FX-6300 Phenom CPU, 8GB RAM I'm aware that the 970 runs cooler and is less demanding on the PSU (around 400 watts I think) which is good because I only currently have a 550 watt PSU. From what iv'e heard Unreal 4 doesn't support AMD hardware particularly well which is probably why I get s**t performance at the moment and as a result is why I'm thinking of getting an Nvidia card this time around, but I'm wondering if compatibility will be an issue, although from what iv'e seen that shouldn't be the case. So thoughts gentlemen?
Hi there community tech support, so a few of you guys have been experiencing issues , its important that you have the latest drivers installed for your hardware even if your not having issues to keep things current For some who dont know there hardware For windows Open up "Device Manager" and select "Display Adapters" under here will be a list of hardware you have for graphics , sometime two for integrated switchable graphics on laptops. Once you have the hardware model and make your good to go Nvidia Hardware http://www.nvidia.com/download/index.aspx for Nvidia fill in the required fields AMD Hardware http://support.amd.com/en-us/download Select -Manually Select Your Driver (note driver 15.11.1 is the hotfix driver for 15.11 that had big issues) Intel Hardware https://downloadcenter.intel.com/fill in the required field in search downloads When ever i update drivers i do a clean install. I use a program called DDU , its fast safe and dose the best job removing drivers and supporting software (including registry keys, folders and files, driver store) http://www.guru3d.com/files-get/display-driver-uninstaller-download,20.htmlJust install then run program that's all guys see you next time :-)
With my laptop, is seems like both the CPU and the RAM have some problems, but mostly the CPU. It's quite annoying since there seems to be almost NO difference with what type of settings i use. Going from Epic to Low, gives me only a small boost of 10-15 fps. Specs: GTX 960M Intel Core i5-4210H (2.90GHz) 8 GB RAM Windows 10 Average fps: Epic - 10-15 fps Low - 25-30 I know it's an alpha and there is a lot more to be done with performance. But my laptop "should" be quite capable to run this game on higher settings. Is there anyone else who have problems with graphic-settings have almost nothing to say for performance? :P
So, we have the Unofficial SLI Configuration thread and it's worked for some people, but the scaling is pretty terrible The thought of true SLI and Crossfire support for Unreal Engine 4 and Squad is shared by many of us that have multi-GPU systems. Well, it looks like it's coming soon! At the VRX 2015 conference in San Francisco, Nvidia and Epic Games announced their partnership and laid out their plans for virtual reality (VR). This includes VR SLI support in Unreal Engine 4! Read about it here. So yes it focuses on VR, but I imagine old school SLI support is bound to make it's way to us soon too! I sure hope so!
SQUAD is using only 40% of my CPU and GPU. It is causing me to get 30FPS average and it's basically a pain in the ass to play with such low framerates. Why is this happening? GPU: NVIDIA GTX 970 CPU: AMD FX 8320 RAM: 12GB Thanks!
Hey guys, I'm fairly new to PC gaming and fairly recently bought a second hand rig. I've got two questions that I have googled and googled and only ended up crosseyed at the end. First, here are my current specs Intel Xeon W3530 2.8 ghz 8 gb DDR3 Radeon Sapphire 6950 2gb GPU I am currently using a small tv as a monitor but have been looking at getting the BenQ RL2455HM monitor. It seems like a good little monitor for 60hz and it's currently on sale where I live (About $220 Cdn.) I've read that if you're looking to buy a monitor for gaming, and specifically for FPS's, you should really be looking at 120 Hz or 144Hz. In those same articles they do say that anything over 60Hz isn't really going to do you any better if your GPU can only pump out 60fps (which is a stretch on most games for my poor little computer.) I do want to build my own unit from scratch, but that's not going to happen tomorrow. So, my questions are: Is the BenQ a decent monitor for my current setup? Would I (or even could I) be better of to upgrade my GPU without upgrading my CPU (the processor I currently have is an old socket type so my plan is to avoid putting that off til I can build an entire rig) and also get a 120Hz monitor? Sorry for all the new guy questions! I'll likely have more questions as others are answered!
I know this kind of discussion is a long shot and probably will have as many point of view than contributors but I'll try it Also please, don't start a "my epenis is bigger than yours" discussion please I sometimes feel like my computer is getting old (bought the parts sept 2012).. I feel it with Arma3 and Assetto Corsa (best Sim Racing software EVER!) for instance. I'd like to be ready for Squad. Here is my setup : Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB OC 950M PCIEIntel Core i5-3570K BOX - LGA1155 Quad Core 3.40 1 224,90 224,90 GHz 6 MB - Ivy Bridge 22nmCorsair Hydro Series H80Kingston HyperX Genesis Kit 2x4GB PC14900 DDR3-1866 CL9Seasonic S12II Bronze 620WGigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H WiFi/BT - LGA1155 ATX 1 239,90 239,90 Z77 DDR3Samsung 830 Series 256GB SSD 2.5" SATA 3 Thanks for any help guys !
