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.

RipGroove posted a topic in General DiscussionI've posted about this a couple of times, this first being back in December 2015 but it is STILL an issue over 2 years later. Here are the original threads (note the original videos have gone now but the info is still relevant): December 22nd 2015 - http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/9110-jittery-aim-video/?tab=comments#comment-140284 January 15th 2016 - http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/11334-low-fps-high-pings-jittery-aim/?tab=comments#comment-167878 To be clear I'm not talking about weapon sway as obviously this is intentional, I'm talking about the crosshair's constant micro jittering and stuttering. Worth noting also that since I first encountered this issue back in 2015 I have changed EVERY piece of my PC's hardware including ALL peripherals, so this is 100% not an issue at my end at all. In the past when this was mentioned the general consensus was "it's a known bug on certain maps with certain scopes and the issue gets worse the closer to the center of the map you are" (I actually always had this issue no matter where I was on the maps) or "it's a UE4 thing that devs have no control over and it'll be fixed in the next UE4 update" or "it will all be sorted when v10 with new animations is avaialble". Well we're now on v10.1 and the issue is clearly still there, this was never an "animations issue" as I suspected all along. I seem to get this issue most when using an ACOG at Chora but it does happen on some other maps also. At close range it is not to much of an issue but at medium to long range the reticle jitters around so much that it is near impossible to hit targets. It feels like I'm using coarse sandpaper as a mouse mat as all my movements are exaggerated and jittery. I actually have a very smooth SteelSeries QcK mat and a pretty decent mouse (Roccat Tyon). Also worth noting that my FPS is usually very good on most maps (80-130 at Ultrawide 21:9 3440x1440 all Ultra settings + SMAA), (more like 50-70 on some of the lesser well optimized maps like Al-Basrah) and that SQUAD is the only game I get this in, in all other games I get super smooth mouse movement, even other UE4 games. Here are two videos very quickly and crudely shot with my phone, but it gives you an idea of what I'm talking about, the key here is that both videos show the exact same scope and that I'm using the exact same settings and hardware in both videos, the only difference is the in game map. Random weapon sway is perfectly acceptable but a reticle that keeps jumping about is pretty much unusable at medium to long range, and near impossible to get a headshot on even a stationary target. Smooth aim, as it should be, U.S. ACOG at Chora Valley: Jittery aim, not right, U.S. ACOG at Logar Valley: There is a massive difference between the two, and this jitter really reduces the ability to accurately aim on medium to long range targets with certain scopes. Again it happens more on some scopes and some maps. There is zero issue my end as I only get this issue with certain scopes and maps in Squad. So, is this actually ever going to be fixed as it's REALLY annoying?
So, I mostly play as a sniper and I often find myself in a situation, where I got someone on the crosshair and I shoot and hit the ground right near my gun. Yeah, I know that my scope is above the barrel. I want a gun movement automatically made by the character when the rifle is pointing at a wall-he either tries to put it over and use it to have more stable aim, or just putting it next to his chest. And my situation is totally not the only one. When for example I go to a balcony, mostly there are like 2 inches that take away the perfect view. In real life I could just stand up a little bit, or just displace my gun to a better position. I am sure I'm not the only one experiencing this.
I've bin searching for this topic on the forums and reddit etc, can't find anything about it so feel free to correct me. But one thing i have bin missing from Sqaud is the option to change the gun from from STD to ALT that is in PR https://puu.sh/u0re7/dee47dad91.png Since it is really nice to have the option to remove say only the optic on a gun in that specific roll. personally speaking i just do not use optics, as much as i can avoid it. One reason is that i just like iron sights, and the other is because it takes a lot of space on the screen. And it gives you big blind spots if you are not aiming down sight with optics. Example when not aiming down sight: https://puu.sh/u0swe/795361d7ed.jpg https://puu.sh/u0srj/266fe905c9.jpg https://puu.sh/u0syn/fceb1018c4.jpg So if it is not planned already, i'm suggesting bring back the option on few of the rolls to have a basic rifle with no optics. Example for rolls who i can see it useful for SL, gren, medic, LMG
All the vehicles should woble back and forth when 50cal or Spg start shooting from the flank side of the vehicle, now these vehicles are sooooo static and far away from the realism. of course when we are shooting from the 50cal on a technical the wobeling effect should make us loose accuracy bcs the aiming sight will start pushing up and thats why insurgency cant burst all their munition in a single round its over heated and they will loose the accuracy. spg should woble after the shot but the wobble not gonna affect the accuracy of the shot bcs it occurs bcs of this single shot. 50cal or any weapon on a toyota shouldnt be equal to a HMV or BTR specially in accuracy one more thing the grenade smoke effect should be slower. Make the speed of the smoke like PR so realistic Thank u Dev team lets make squad more and more realistic
Hey guys! I looked for this on the forums but didn't find it. In some other games, your weapon isnt stuck to the same position on the screen at all times, i think it would be great if this was a thing in squad, but its not like in the arma games, where your weapon is completely independent of the screen movement until it reaches a certain point. this video explains what i mean. When you look around both your screen and the weapon move but the weapon isnt stuck to the center and it wont reach the corners of the screen either.
Hello devs, could you add a sensitivity slider for when you are aiming? It helps a lot, specially whit targets that are really far away, it helps whit the accuracy Rising Storm Slider EDIT: for those of you who didnt get it, im talking about a sensitivity slider separate from the looking sensitivity. It should affect your sensitivity when you are aiming, and not just looking around.
I can aim & shoot, but iron sight rifles in CQB, no matter how much drag I add to control recoil (whilst staying accurate), the rifle still jumps up enough that if my taget is moving left or right, I almost always lose them underneath the rifle barrel and die because of it. My KDR is never as good as when I'm playing on the US team with an aimdot. When clearing built-up areas, structures, rocks, etc (any CQB really), I move around with the weapon already sighted as it removes the aiming animation delay. The US RDS allows me to burst fire and adjust my shots without losing my target, even when they are running; there's enough space under the aimdot to keep tracking them. Unfortunately the iron sights don't. How do you CQB against moving targets with iron sight rifles?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLLKlqDY7N0 Since we're all a part of the tactical mil. sim. genre, lots of factors set the pace of action. And in hypotheticals, increasing the difficulty of weapons handling might set the perfect pace for Squad! Iron sight/Scope misalignment would overhaul animations but could push the need for stance-based combat. And it's featured in Ground Branch and Rising Storm 2, it's extremely realistic and would be game-changing.
Something didnt work properly with the pictures so Im just going to gave you this links instead of them. Something what annoys me and probbably a lot of other players in the Squad and other fps games is zooming the scope .When you use scope which can maginfy, it zoomes in the whole picture instead of only scope. The problem with this is rendering. If you had normal aiming in the games your screen picture would look like 1x outside and lets say 4x inside of the scope, but then your pc would need to render the map twice what dramatically lowers frames per second. Develpers currently have few solutions for this: 1) Is to maginify the hole screen lets say 4x like acog, what Squad and Battlefield currently use. https://www.google.hr/search?espv=2&biw=1680&bih=925&tbm=isch&sa=1&btnG=Tra%C5%BEi&q=Squad+gameplay+acog#btnG=Tra%C5%BEi&imgrc=oyIIYPwPMjpkdM%3A https://www.google.hr/search?q=battlefield+gameplay+acog&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwie8_-ujpvKAhXCgQ8KHS7VAsEQ_AUIBygB&biw=1680&bih=881#imgrc=mSwLu_GEzJmuiM%3A 2) Which is actually pretty retarded, Battlefeild uses it for snipers, is to magnify the scope and make all around it black. https://www.google.hr/search?q=battlefield+snipers+scope&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjfxpS5kJvKAhVFiQ8KHev0DWwQ_AUIBygB&biw=1680&bih=881#imgrc=hRHpkX2iJng2WM%3A 3) Which I think is the best,and which one many of us would like to be in the Squad, and this one really should be implemented in the game. Magnify the whole picture and blure everything outside the scope like you, developers, did in the project reallity. It looks good with the acog and you could probably implemet that for sniper scopes too. And it could be improved by making picure outside little less blurry and maybe to set metal part aroud the magnification glass non blured. Here is how it looked like in the project reality: https://www.google.hr/search?espv=2&biw=1680&bih=881&tbm=isch&sa=1&q=project+reality+gameplay+acog&oq=project+reality+gameplay+acog&gs_l=img.3...94306.101322.0.101518.104.22.168.0.0.0.331.2124.0j4j4j2.10.0....0...1c.1.64.img..19.0.0.RD8JD5teXJE#imgrc=LqD6UzEn3qQ6cM%3A I know that developers currently have a lot of job fixing bugs and fps dropps but they should really consider this little problem because it acctually improves gameplay for people who care for realistic details, and yeah, just press like button if you approve this oppinion. Sorry for bad English.
Vinny1001 posted a topic in Feedback & SuggestionsSearched "sensitivity" and nothing came up about this. So some games have a sensitivity option for regular hip fire, as well as aiming down sight, and even scoped sensitivity. I understand it's pre-alpha, but I was wondering will that be implemented in? I tried snooping through the config files but didn't find anything that useful. I would like to have the same sensitivity all around, or at least have the option for it, as others may like a lower sensitivity aiming down site. But I think this should be able to be customized for the player because some people like it one way, some like it another. Or, is there a multiplier used for the main sensitivity that multiples it into the scoped sensitivity? Because if that's there, allow us to change the multiplier if we don't want any change in sensitivity between ADS, and hip fire, or if you want .5 of your main sensitivity, so it'd half it when you ADS, and so on. So main question, will this be implemented eventually? Oh, this is mainly a suggestion to add into the game, but also a question because it's alpha and it may already be planned. Thanks!
Lo All Would it be possible to have a slight offset when aiming. I mean righties have the offset right side and lefties Left sied. When one hold the gun the site is never really in the middle of the screen... Maybe summin to think about.
May I suggest having a small fixed aiming deadzone, about the same size or slightly smaller than Insurgency's. And on aiming downsight, the weapon would be randomly lined anywhere within the deadzone. This is to prolong target acquisition, especially for high powered scopes, since the game wont have bullet deviation, and sway may not be powerful enough to hinder fast acquisition.
