      Forum Rules   07/06/2016

      Introduction   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.

  1. Resolution issue

    Hey I'm trying to get into Squad, but I cannot get it to scale correctly. I have a Ryzen 5 3600, and an RX 580. It overscales and underscales everytime I try to adjust the settings, and I cant even move the cursor far enough to hit the apply settings button. I have tried uninstalling the game and clearing my cache multiple times and every time I launch it I have the same issue. Not sure if I can change anything in the Radeon software app but I feel like I,ve exhausted all options. Please help!
  2. Hello. My custom interlaced resolution (2560x1920i @80Hz if that matters) on my CRT monitor created using CRU works fine on the desktop, but doesn't show up in-game, and when I've forced it using "r.setres 2560x1920f" it actually sent the correct signal to the monitor, but I was still only able to see 1920x1440 (the original resolution of the monitor according to the EDID info), and the rest was just a static image! Troubleshooting Steps I've already done: Deleting the original resolution of the monitor, and using the custom resolution on the Desktop Setting the DPI Scaling options to 100% Deleting the C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Squad\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor folder multiple times Manually setting the resolution variables in GameUserSettings.ini in the Squad settings folder Nothing helped so far. Is there anything I can try, or am I screwed, and have to use progressive resolutions in this game?
  3. 4K not working

    I can't seem to enable 4k on squad, no matter what I do. I have a rtx 2080 and use the 4x DSR option in the Nvidia control panel. Whenever I select the 4k resolution (3840x2160) and set my game to fullscreen, it only displays the very top left 1/4 of the screen. Picture added below to show what it looks like on team selection menu. Any way to fix this? Only happens on Squad. https://imgur.com/a/TODMBiT Edit: Weirdly enough, putting the game into 2k (2560x1440) will work and show the entire screen, but it makes it look kind of blurry and full of jagged edges (Even though I still have TAA and super sampling on, and 2k is supposed to be sharper than 1080p)
  4. I've chosen the fullscreen option and clicked apply, but Squad doesn't take up the entirety of the screen, it just goes to a set resolution. Like, the option says that it's full screen, but I can still see my Steam in the background. Any suggestions or fixes to this problem? If you need a reference I can send you an image: Steam - Adrien Moreau
  5. Running Squad at 3840x1600 ultrawide causes strange GPU usage anomalies on certain maps. The best example is Kohat Toi - FPS drops happen regardless of player count and the game's debug overlay suggests high frametime caused by GPU - BUT - MSI Afterburner tells me GPU isn't even hitting it's max usage... https://imgur.com/a/Unjp7xd https://imgur.com/a/Rg7yPZY Please see attached screenshots. You can see the GPU usage isn't at max, but the framerate is lower than refresh rate of monitor (60hz), which would make sense if the CPU or network was struggling etc etc, but the debug overlay clearly says the problem is coming from the GPU. I am really confused about this, and I've never seen this before in a game. I am fully aware that I'm running a crazy-high resolution and would expect to see FPS drops because of this, but the data I'm sharing here actually suggests that my GPU has plenty of headroom left, and yet something is stopping it from using that left-over power. And it doesn't seem to be the CPU! specs: 6700K - 4.5ghz MSI 1080ti - not OC'd Samsung PRO EVO SSD ASUS Hero VIII H100 watercooler. Acer 38" XR382CQK Windows 8.1 64-bit
  6. Why does everything look low res?

    Why do textures appear low res up close? I run everything on max, save for super sampling which I turn off or set to 1.25, and view distance which I set to low, as the difference isn't really noticeable. So why are uniform textures (especially the Russian ones) and many weapon textures blurry and seemingly low res? I've seen enough of Squad's promo videos and YouTube gameplay of guys running it at max settings and 60 FPS to know that textures shouldn't look this way. What games is this, becuase it sure doesn't look like Squad! GTX 960M i7 4720HQ 16 GBs RAM 2x 500 MB HDD
  7. Resolution/UI problem

    Is there a UI scaling of some sort? my default resolution is 1280x1024 at the moment (using a different monitor, main one died on me) And when I go in game my squad list is cut off so I can't kick or promote someone else to squad lead. Heres an image of the problem.
  8. I would launch my game and i would click server browser but it goes to firing range when my mouse was hovering over server browser and if i do join a game my map full size would be zoomed in so i cant spawn? Please Help. Discord:WingsK#9570 skype:pritpal.kullar1

  11. yo, i'm actually blocked on 1600*900, i really want to change it but it seems to be impossible. btw the graphic properties for my screen is 1280*720. need for help !
  12. Hello there. When I launch the game through steam, it opens as a small box that covers the 60% of my screen, as if it was in windowed mode in 1366x768. When I go to the graphics settings to change this, the resolution box is empty. There isn't a single resolution listed in the list, the list doesn't even open up. Selecting windowed mode sets the game into windowed mode, in 1366x768 or something like that, however my native resolution is 1920x1080. Setting the game to borderless stretches the game outside my monitors limits (as if I was trying to display 4k on my 1080p monitor without scaling it down) This problem goes away, if I launch Squad.exe in administrator mode. The resolution box is filled with every resolution I would expect to see, and the game works perfectly in the test range. I can not join any server though, since the game wasn't launched using the launcher, and therefore the anticheat couldn't initialize properly. Running launcher.exe in administrator mode results in the same problem as if launching it through steam. I tried deleting squad folder from %localappdata%, clearing user cache, and various other methods. My system specs: Asus N56VZ S4263H Notebook RAM: 2 x SO-DIMM socketed, total of 16 GB DDR3 1600 MHz SDRAM Processor: Intel® Core™ i7 3630QM @2.4 ghz Graphics card: Nvidia GT650M 4GB DDR3 Screen: 15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) OS: Windows 7 Professional Edition This is how it looks like:
  13. I could play the first 4 hours of this game fine as I just had to change the resolution and let the game crash a few times, I have been able to play games with worse problems. However after I left earlier today to grab a bite to eat the game began to act up and become unplayable. Upon launching the game all the menus are twice their normal size, however instead of going off screen they just stick on the screen where they are supposed to be but larger. The mouse was off set far to the right and down, and it was quite difficult to get to the settings, graphics, and then resolution with an invisible cursor. I could change the resolution however I can't click on around the bottom 1/3 of the screen to apply changes in full-screen, so I pressed f11 which locked my mouse in the top left 1/6 of the screen, however I could still apply changes with the off set mouse. After, "fixing," the problem I could not manage to reach the exit game button, so I alt tabbed out and restarted the game, only to find the settings had changed and I had to do it all over again, except I thought I could just join a game and at least do something, however I could not see past the map that took up half the screen and the 2 full squads taking up the other half. I could not scroll down or do almost anything so I alt tabbed out again and tried to fix the resolution yet again to no avail. I restarted my computer as sometimes games get a bit wonky if I have kept the computer on for more than about a week, which seems to keep things the way I want them for about 5 minutes, until I click something and the game minimizes and either can't be pulled up again forcing me to use task manager, or is pulled up in a higher resolution with the offset mouse problem. I am also stuck in varying stages of the process occasionally when opening the game (ie: stuck in the top left corner on launch). Note that I can only play on 2048x1552 resolution, as anything higher has a jacked hud and menu, and anything lower puts a massive black border around the game. My system is as follows: Windows 10 i7 Nvidia Geforce GTX 960M note I have nearly 400 GB of free space left, and also I only made a forums account to post this problem tha tI have been trying to resolve for over an hour now.
  14. Having a few problems with V9. First is the scoreboard, which just refuses to fit to my screen. I am not running in 4k and am running in 1680x1050. I have checked windows scaling and the squad config and nothing is wrong, but the scoreboard is still refusing to work. I have tried to reinstall and clear the game cash, but the problem still remains. I have a screenshot below of the issue: as you can see, the word scoreboard is cut in half and the "next map" is off the screen. The Stryker issue is another weird one. It only happens when I'm on a server, but I will be in the gunner seat for maybe 5-10 seconds and the white text saying "Press (Enter) to open the spawn screen" will pop up in the middle of my screen until I switch seats or get out of the vehicle. Its pretty annoying as it takes up the center of the targeting reticule. I have not had long enough in the BTRs or the tracked vehicles in v9 to test if they have the issue aswell.
  15. Resolution problems

    Right, so my problem is as follows. I have been running the game full screen on my primary monitor 2560x1440, with a secondary monitor that is "extended" 1920x1200 And the game thinks thats fine, but borderless, or windowed it does not like at all. The game then thinks my primary monitor is 1600x900 and starts the game up like that.. at launch screen and the splash at the start its windowed on my primary, then it stretches out to fullscreen but still in the same resolution so stuff looks blurry. If i try to change the resolution it does not want to, if i try to change to fullscreen or windowed it jumps back to borderless. It wont cooperate. I have manualy forced the resolution in the "DefaultGameUserSettings.ini" file in /steamapps/common/etc.. And I also forced it in user/appdata/etc.. first the one, then the other, then both. this changes nothing.. So i deleted the entirety of the squad related files in /user/appdata/etc.. that changed nothing.. So i deleted both /user/appdata/etc files.. and the files in the config folder of /steamapps/common/etc.. then verified the integrity of the game, redownloaded those files then tried. Still nothing.. I then rechecked my actual screen resolution verifying that it is indeed 2560x1440 and i am assured by windows that it is. I then disabled my secondary monitor so no more extending, incase that was messing with it.. This also did nothing. At this point i am at a loss and i need help.
  16. Hey guys. I´ve buyed a 24" 4k monitor and a gtx 1080 but now i can´t join any server because i get kicked instantly after loading the map. Also i sometimes cant use the full screen because my mouse stops at the half of the screen, i´ve changed the resolution in the defaultgameusersettings first was not able to chang it ingame. I hope you can help me
  17. A friend of mine that I play squad with but refuses to ask questions on here has been struck with an issue where as soon as he loads into a game his resolution changes and his centerpoint on screen is about 3 inches off so nothing he does ingame is accurate. Then shortly after the game crashes. He has uninstalled/ reinstalled about 3 times. Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Please help has made his game almost unplayable.
  18. NVidia DSR factors

    I am using DSR factors in NVidia control panel to render at a higher resolution than my monitor (1080P) instead of the in game option as this gives better performance. The option is only available in global settings not programs (squad) within NVidia control panel, I guess this is as it is not supported? I this is the case then there is my answer and will it be supported? It worked fine in V7 but since V8 I keep losing some of the picture and gun is off centre, this can be rectified by alt and tab twice then going to and reapplying graphics settings which in my case is set at 1440. I fist apply this setting in game and it works but then select a sporn point after death it suddenly loses the down scaled resolution again and I have to reapply in graphic settings once again, also when game starts or changes map. The game just looks so much better, Names and the frame rate counter are much smaller when set at 1440 as compared with 1080 which is a quick way of identifying what resolution the game is at. Is there any fix?
  19. Hello i am experiencing a problem with resolution. Namely i have an 4:3 old monitor which runs 1280x1024 (yes i can see enemies) and when i turn on the screen with map and role selection, the squad list is being covered by map so i cannot for example pass the SL role to other person (ya know how much times i've been shouted on for?). No i wont buy an 16:9 monitor. Yes the monitor is CRT. Yes i had an option to switch for an bigger monitor but i did not. Yes i am kinda of nerd.

  21. Stuck at lower resolution

    I lowered my resolution before some patching and tweaking which really improved game performance for me. Now that my game is running better I wanted to turn the resolution back up to 1920 X 1080 but the option has disappeared from my settings menu. The highest I can put it at is something like 1620x1050, which isn't that bad but its not ideal. I even tried to set the resolution in the config files but I can't get my game back to 1080. Anybody have any ideas on how to get it back short of uninstalling and reinstalling the game?
  22. I've reinstalled the game and verified steam cache, tried windowed mode, defaults and had a look in engine.ini but can't seem to force the game to run at 1920x1080. Any suggestions would appreciated. All the best from PR vet :)
  23. Can't change resolution

    I changed my resolution to 1280x960 . Now I want to change it back to 1920x1080 but it won't let me select anything greater then 1280x960. help please
  24. 720p Res max?

    I cannot select a resolution above 720p in Squad. Iv exited the game and started back up numerous times and still I nothing higher then 720. CPU - Intel i5 4440 GPU - Asus Radeon R9 270 DCII OC RAM - 8gb DDR3 1600 GSkill Sniper https://youtu.be/vETOegSHaFw
  25. When I first install a new version of Squad I have the option of gaming at 3840x2160 resolution in the settings. If I select anything lower than that the settings higher disappear. Example: I click 2160x1440 resolution setting, then apply. When I go back into settings 2160x1440 is now the highest available option. The higher resolutions disappear. Before v3 I didn't run the game through Steam and would adjust the .ini usersettings file for 4k. Is that still the only option? Maybe this should move to suggestions but I would consider this important enough to fix prior to EA.
