      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. At the present you have one setting for your sounds with Command/Squad/Local. Could we maybe get preset bonus so If I play as SL my Squad and Command are boosted and my local are reduced. Or allow me a preset for these roles. Generally as SL I have squad and command at 120% and local as 80% were as as a Grunt I would prefer Squad to be reduced to 80% and local at 100%. (and boost my effects too ). Anything that would help would be good.
  2. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and this might be the wrong place (feel free to move me ;-) ). I was wondering if there's a current guide out there to tweak graphics settings. I'm interested in the best compromise of fps and quality (aesthetics and spotting). Usually, you have some kind of sweet spot that still gives you relatively pleasing visuals but retains a good fps rate. I found some guides from 2018 but I since things have changed (engine updated etc.) and I'm not sure if they still make sense. Thanks in advance!
  3. Mic not working.

    Hi, I played in free weekend and I love this game, but audio settings are completely useless. I know is an alpha version, but this issue should be resolved. The game has a huge problem with audio optimization. The microphone does not work in headphones. I use Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT Wireless Headphones and it works correctly in any other game or app but not in Squad. I tried to do everything in windows settings but it didn't help. These headphones has two controllers - one headset - one stereo headphones. When I switch between them in windows settings that worked only as audio or only as microphone. It is very frustrating when there are no proper audio settings in the game. I should able to choose in game setting the proper input/output device. So, I won't buy this game until it is not fixed.
  4. FOV change

    Does anyone know how to change the field of view faster than open settings and set it there every time? Maybe I can bind it?
  5. Bildprobleme

    Servus zusammen, ich habe das Spiel seit heute und konnte bis jetzt leider noch nicht mal spielen. Folgendes Problem: Sobald ich das Spiel starte und im Hauptmenü bin komme ich mit der Maus nicht weiter nach rechts, der Mauszeiger bleibt kurz vor "Settings" stehen wie als würde er an einer imaginären Wand stehen bleiben. Das zieht sich irgendwie durch das ganze Menü, wie als wäre alles verschoben. Auch wenn ich einen Reiter auswählen will muss ich ein gutes stück daneben drücken damit das geht. Das nervt mich jetzt schon tierisch an :-( Das Trainingslager habe ich mal begonnen zum Spielen, das geht komischerweise. Keine Ahnung was das ist. Ich hoffe ihr könnt mir helfen. Grüße
  6. Hi guys, i was wondering are people using Nvidia Freestyle to get some better graphics in game? im curious what kind of settings you use? couldnt find any topics on it.
  7. microphone usage

    I would like to suggest a microphone setting to be implemented into the squad settings for players who have more than one microphone. I believe the game uses the computer's default microphone settings as its default. It would be nice to have that setting in game so the player can choose which microphone he/she wants to use.
  8. any plan of adding a fixed benchmark tool in the future?
  9. Suggestions for Owi

    Recommendation: Analyze this suggestion from a more holistic perspective. (Updated) I believe I may have a solution that would optimize the game a bit further and would definitely be more enjoyable for everyone. A) Multiple Spawn Areas: Preferably three(varies on maps & game-modes) - I suggest having an Optional: Aerial-Support base being able to be destroyed, disabled or Capturable. Main base: logistics, transport For: Squad leaders, Infantry Offensive Vehicle Base = t72, stryker, 30mm For: Crewman Kit, Engineer kit Aerial-support main-base = helicopter, drones, air-strikes. For: Commander roles, and Helicopter Pilot roles. B) Settings/System Requirements: I believe that very few actually use the motion blur so I think we should remove that and the low settings while keeping only the medium to epic settings. I also believe that we should update Requirements by replacing the "Minimum Requirement" with our current "Recommended Requirement'. Settings: Remove All Low settings and Cinematic Shadow = Medium, High, and Epic only. Remove: Distance Shadow Foliage = Medium, High, and Epic only. Remove: All Low Settings System Requirements: Ram Must be: 16gb Ram or higher GPU Must be: GTX 970 or higher CPU Must be: i5-2550k or higher C) Game-play: Ticket bleed changes Troops: Commanders cost = 8 ticket bleed Squad Leaders cost = 4 tickets bleed Normal Infantry cost = 1 ticket bleed Vehicles: Logistics, Transport cost = 15 tickets bleed Small artillery Vics cost = 20 tickets bleed Medium artillery Vics cost = 25 ticket bleed Heavy Battle Tanks cost = 30 tickets bleed Aerial(Helicopter) cost = 30 tickets bleed Deployable/Flags: Radios cost = 30 tickets bleed Captured objectives = 40 tickets bleed I would love to hear some feedback from the community as well, let me know what you think about these suggestions. Will you guys enjoy this more, will it be worse, and please be specific as to why you would disagree/agree. Thanks.
  10. V12.1 Performance

    Am i the only one getting worse performance in V12.1? In V12 was everything smooth... I cleared my cache, even deleted the Squad folder from %appdata% My Settings in V12 running just fine: Resolution: 2560x1440 Now i have to lower alot of settings to have the same result, for example: turn off Ambient Occlusion, lower the Super-Sampling to 1.25x and lower Effects to Low My Specs: - CPU: Intel Core i7 8700K (OC'ed: 4.8GHz) - GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1080Ti ROG STRIX GAMING OC - RAM: G.Skill 3200MHz RIPJAWS V 32GB (4X8GB) DDR4 - SSD: M.2 Samsung 960 Pro 512GB NVMe(running OS) / Samsung 840 Evo 250GB(Running Squad) - OS: Windows 10 Pro
  11. Hold RMB to ADS option?

    Before the A12 update, I was able to hold RMB to ADS as infantry. Now, I'm stuck with clicking RMB to toggle ADS and want to change it back to holding as it's easier for me and I'm used to it. Is there a way to change it to holding RMB and if so, could you tell me where in settings I can change it?
  12. two things I noticed: when I go to "settings - game - general - maximum FPS" and set a value, say 60, I click "apply" and it works, but next time I restart the game it still says "60" but it doesn't work anymore, unless I change to another value (59 or 61, then 60 again) to make it work. when I go to the "command menu" or "deployment menu" I toggle "viewing roles as player icons" ON, and it works, but on the next map although it is still ON, it doesn't work unless I switch it off and on again also, please, make clicking on the HAB to respawn more responsive, I always end up having to zoom in to click on it because I click on someone else or something else, I know I can use the menu on the left side to click on it, but I like to clicking on the map
  13. Foliage blurry and flickering

    Hey guys. From the first time I installed the game, I'm having issues with the graphics. First of all, I have 2x GTX 770 4GB but for Squad I'm using Single GPU Profile (SLI seems to be causing problems). However, regardless of what graphic settings I use, the foliage (trees, flowers etc) seems very "textury" and ugly. Even if I set foliage to Epic along with 1.5 supersampling, the improvement is so minor that I can't even notice any difference at all. Is that normal? I have attached 2 in-game screenshots along with my settings. Thanks in advance.
  14. Descriptions

    People do not understand all the fine details of the graphics settings give a little more description and people will be able to tweak there own settings, look at the forums people are confused as shit.
  15. Looked through my settings today and noticed that while my GPU usage was only 80% and CPU usage was at 35% my VRAM was maxed out. I have a 970 and know that using the full 4GB VRAM causes issues, so I wanted to get it under 3.5 GB. I had my 'optimized' settings with some high, some medium, some low, and most 'off', and when I turned it down to even the lowest settings on "Custom" my VRAM stayed pegged at 4GB and frames hovered at 40-50 even though it looked relatively awful. It was only when I used the "Low" preset that my VRAM more than halved down to 1.7 GB and my frames shot up to a steady 80-90 with a full 78 man server on Gorodok. Even though it looked the same (I wait until it re-renders on each change but effectively they are both the same settings) the frames nearly doubled. After testing out Medium and High I found that I can run the Epic preset with my little 970 and still hold roughly the same frames as my custom settings and the game looks FAR better. "High" looks alright but I kind of questioned when people called this game beautiful until I played Gorodok on Epic. It really does look amazing. There is a catch - if you want to run Low/Med/High/Epic preset you must run them as is. Changing any settings reverts it back to custom and can increase VRAM, which in my case causes issues. Despite dipping into the 30s and 40s occasionally, which still occurred on my lower custom settings, the game not only looked much better, but felt better and my shots landed more often (likely due to clarity of target). It may have been a placebo effect or simply due to no longer being at 4GB VRAM but I'll take it either way. Setup CPU : 4790k 4.00 GHz clock GPU : EVGA 970 SSC RAM : 16 GB Res: 2560x1080 Custom (All low/off or medium/high) : 35-50 frames on large maps, 45-60 on smaller maps Low : 80-90 on large maps (Gorodok only tested so far) Medium : 60-75 Gorodok High: 50-65 Gorodok, 65-75 Sumari Epic: 35-55 Gorodok, 60-70 Sumari Cliffs: If you are running "Custom" settings, monitor your VRAM and watch how it changes with the graphics presets. If you can live with things like motion blur, you will likely have a much better looking game at similar FPS. Alternatively you could gain some frames at a similar quality with medium or high presets. 970 owners use the presets only. This may be old news but I have about 300 hours in the game and haven't seen anything about it in any optimization topics. The benefits may be isolated but I still feel like it's useful to bring up. I would also like to poll those with GPUs that have more than 4GB VRAM to see where the ceiling is on "Custom" with all Epic and everything turned on and see how they change with presets. Some people have tested this and noticed no difference - but I can finally hold 60-70 frames on the smaller maps at the highest settings with just a 970. It may seem pretty simple.. "why didn't you just try it to begin with you derp" but I believe the default is High.. then I turned off preferences like Blur and Bloom, and it snowballed from there. I wanted to hold 60 before I realized it wasn't really possible on all maps.. and assumed I wouldn't be turning settings up to get the best experience before I found out about this custom settings issue.
  16. I play 1920 x 1080 and i maxed out my anti-aliazing and stuff in the distance still looks awful i have to sit 4 cm away from my screen to spot people. this has resulted in eye issues now i have worse vision.
  17. Hey i was wondering what graphic settings people were using. Reason i ask is my settings recently wiped and i never saved them after tweaking them, so i had to do it again which got me thinking. Pictures welcomed

  19. Is there a server command to kick afk/unassigned player. Player a game today 10 afk/unassigned on our side so 30 vs 40 which spikes the balance. Also could we get team balance of unassigned. Or ar these settings planned
  20. Resolution scaling

    Hi there, I've not played in a while and just had my first games today. I have a new install so I am getting my settings sorted. I noticed I can no longer see GPU scaling - has this been removed?
  21. Few settings options

  22. Hi, as I said in the tittle I'm looking for a custom setting of the engine so I can reach a photorealistic quality of the game, I'm trying to record a few videos for my squad and in general for the Spanish community. Right now I have these comms in DefaultEngine.cfg, below SystemSettings: As I said, these settings are not meant to be playable, only to maintain 30 fps at my PC while I record. Main objectives are Particles, LOD and Shadows. I'm sorry for my horrible english, because I'm not a regular english speaker, and thank you all.
  23. i need help

    I need help guys, i just bought the game and i want to set optimal settings, i have evrything on ultra and the game looks ugly as ****. Can YOU post your setting here? i want to set it up.
  24. Once I got the 7.7 update, Squad launched in Borderless mode. Once I set it back to fullscreen (cause otherwise g-sync doesn't work) my entire (Windows 10) computer freezes completely except for music still playing. I can't alt-tab or ctrl-alt-delete or anything. Only thing I can do is hard-reset. Issue probably came with this update but can't be 100% sure. Please fix fast! I need fullscreen and g-sync working!
  25. Hi! I've had this problem for a while where i couldn't change (Or even Enable) the Motion Blur settings in Game.
