      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. What is the minimal required CPU for license. I'm have Xeon X5675 (x2), is that enough?
  2. Is anyone else unable to play due to a bad memory leak? I launch the game, and immediately my RAM and GPU both start steadily climbing in usage before I even get to the main screen. Once I first get on the main screen of the game, my GPU is sitting pegged at 99% usage, and my RAM is sitting at 50%-60% Usage, and continues to climb until it hits about 80%. Keep in mind this is just sitting at the main menu screen. Once I actually join a game the RAM goes all the way to 99% usage and the game is unplayable as it hitches and stutters violently. I have completely uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. I've also reinstalled my graphics and chipset drivers, and ensured Windows is up to date. I also verified the integrity of the game cache in steam after reinstalling the game, and cleared the game cache once I launched the game for the first time for good measure. I'm running an Intel Core i7 8700K ( at stock speeds ), 16 GB of 3000 MHz ( Stock Speed ) DDR4, and a EVGA GTX 980 Superclocked ( Planning on upgrading my GPU once the next gen comes out ). I have been playing other games and using other programs without any similar issues whatsoever. As an example of a demanding title, I can play Kingdom Come: Deliverance without any similar performance issues at all so I don't think that it's an issue with my hardware? I still have some other troubleshooting steps that I would like to try, but it would help to know if anyone else is having a similar issue or could recommend any additional ideas. Here's a screenshot of my system RAM and GPU usage from squad just sitting on the main screen: Link Thanks guys!
  3. Hi Guys which CPU should i pick for my new gamer (i would mainly play squad, post scriptum and HLL) Core i5 8400 or Ryzen 5 1600 Overclocked?
  4. A couple of questions about CPU optimization for the devs or anybody that has knowledge about this. With the recent events of cheaper hexa-core and octa-core and now even 16-core CPU's entering the market, what are your plans moving forward in terms of CPU optimization? Will you favor faster clock speed over more cores or the other way around or somewhere in between? And how is this implemented today? Ultimately, what would be your suggestion when getting a new CPU if performance is important.
  5. i7 8700k new cpu

    https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/10/intel-coffee-lake-8700k-review/ The new chip came out supposed to be new number one gamer chip. But is it really?
  6. I know there is stat fps and that stuff, but I would like an easier way to see whether you are being cpu capped of capped by the gpu regarding the fps. I am thinking a new command that just displays maybe text "gpu" or "cpu" for the moment. Maybe also a % ratio average them between would be nice. I know there are game vs draw thread times but I feel it is somewhat complicated to actually know that you understand them correctly. I think an indicator like this would make it much easier for people to know whether they should buy a new cpu or a new gpu. I think it would be quite nice and easy to implement as well.
  7. Hi everyone, I was wondering if I would get a noticeable performance increase if I overclocked my CPU (i5 4690K) to around 3.9Ghz? My current GPU is a GTX 970
  8. Hi guys TL;DR - my game is stuttering and freezing with CPU usage running at 100% during some matches but not always. ______________________________________________ Recently bought the game and having a blast so far getting to grips with it. However, I'm having a very much game breaking problem at the moment which is that my CPU usage goes through the roof. Now this does not happen in every match, some matches run fine with no problems and then others i get constant freezes whenever turning my camera view - some of which can last as long as 4 or 5 seconds and have noticed that while this is happening my CPU usage is way too high often running between 95% - 100% while my RAM sticks around a steady 50%. I am doing nothing different inbetween these matches and the only thing I have noticed (although I'm not sure if it's just a coincidence) is that the freezes tend to happen more often than not on maps which have more foliage. I don't know if this is some common problem or just a me thing but here are my specs: CPU: Intel i5 3570k GPU: GTX 970 Mobo: Gigabyte G1 Sniper RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance PSU: Corsair 800W It should also be noted my P.C runs every other game I play (including Arma & BF1) very smoothly, or as smooth as can be in the case of Arma. Thanks for any advice!
  9. Changing older cpu

    I got an old i5 750 2.66ghz on stock and i can barely play squad. Paired with 8gb ram and r9 270 I got 25-30fps on full server. I am looking for a new cpu to upgrade and I wanna know if the Intel g4560 will bring me a better performance on games like arma 3 and squad. I think the powerfull single thread will help me on this games.
  10. Hello guys i have played squad during the free weekend and i really enjoyed game despite my fps was around 25 on low setting all the time at 70 players servers. So i would like to buy game but before i want to get a new cpu what would you recommend me my budget is 400 dollars(doesnt mean i want to get something super expensive). My current cpu is amd fx-4100 which is terrile i know. Motherboard is by gigabite with am3+ socket (i am able to buy new one but would be great if there was good cpu with this socket so wouldnt have to buy new one) Graphic card is ASUS GTX950-OC-2GD5 RAM = 8GB So my question is what cpu should i buy since i think the graphic card is decent....... thx for your suggestions
  11. Recommended cpu

  12. Hello guys. I would like to upgrade my PC but I can go for one upgrade only. Which upgrade should I go for? I only care about having more fps in Squad. I play at 1080p. A CPU upgrade from i5 4690k to i7 7700k or a GPU upgrade from AMD R9 390 to GTX 1080? I wish I could do both hehe, but unfortunately thats not possible. Much appreciated!

  14. Hi guys, I have Squad since the pre-alpha, bough with a friend the developer helper edition or something like that. I have just started to play it now, cause the performance was terrible before, specially in AMD machines. I see that now performance is much better in AMD, but CPU utilization is not working as it should. First the game starts at 70-90FPS, (that's with around 65 players), but in the middle to the end of the round, FPS drops to around 38-45, if you check your GPU usage you can see that it was working fine when FPS was around 70-90, but when it drops, GPU utilization stays very inconsistent, with lots of drops and pikes. CPU utilization is around 40-60% for all the cores, so something is very wrong, and I'm pretty sure that Vulkan could solve it. Same thing happens for intel i5/i7 CPUs so that's not a CPU problem at all.
  15. Hey Guys, i only want to let you know i switched from fx8350 to an i7 7700k with ddr4 ram, and since that, the games runs fantastic smooth with my gtx980 on highest settings... I loved this game and now i loved it more Greetings BloodieX
  16. Hi there, I am looking into making my own Gaming PC and I'm keen in buying this game. But I need help with the required Specs, CPU, etc. I am currently set on buying an Intel Core i7 but any other cheaper or better suggestions will be fantastic. P.S. I currently have a IMac from late 2012 and I'm wondering if I can just upgrade somethings from that? Thanks for your time.
  17. CPUCores (Program)

    I just tried to start the game from the program CPU Cores, played in the "Firing Range" and got me extra +20 FPS, does anyone tried this program too? And anyone knows better settings in the program to get even better performance? The program: http://store.steampowered.com/app/384300/ My specs: i7 4770K, MSI GTX 970, 16 GB-Ram, SSD 840 Evo.
  18. AMD CPU performance is terrible

    I've noticed that a lot of people with intel processors have better FPS, can anyone tell me why AMD processors fail to handle squad well, and if there is a possible fix I can do or do soon?
  19. Squad System Requirments

    I know there are system requirements on the steam version, but most of them on games are some what inaccurate. I have an Intel Core i5 4590 3.3Ghz. I was wondering if that CPU will be enough to run this game at decent at least 60fps and at least on medium settings. My GPU is more than enough to run it at high, but i'm not sure about my CPU. Hopefully i'm posting this in the right forum section lol. Thanks all.
  20. Cpu spikes to 100%

    I had 70% usage since latest hotfix. it spikes to 100% every few seconds or so when I first join a server then stops. After playing today it caps to 100% every few seconds. Based on what I have been reading I think this is server or game sided. I tried everything online related to performance. I have a skylake i5-7760k so its not a hardware issue. I hope this can be fixed next update. (this is running the game on max or on lowest possible). I would like to know if this happens to my chip only or just randomly.
  21. Hello, this is interesting subject that I have been following since the early versions of the SQD. Many players seems to have monstorous GPUs and "monstorous" CPUs. Now in current state it seems that multicore CPUs are over rated since game (and many software in general) seem to use only core or two to do their calculations. Another interesting fact is the "best CPU" is not necessary the best. Like this chart suggest i7 processors should be way way OP compared to i5 family ... like 2x more speed for same GHz.. This couldn't be more misleading. This next comparison image gives interesting fact. Now what we have here... Let see CPU mark with red to see "the real performance" which is for favour of i7 !! Naturally. What in much more interesting is the Single Thread Ratings i5: 2231 i7: 1991 This means that i7 is actually over 10% worse than i5 on single thread performance (non multithreating use). Source of CPU data for this quick and dirty tech post is https://www.cpubenchmark.net/ PS. This screenshot gives even more misleading picture of performance for favour of AMD. Note the Single Thread Performance number and compare to "potato i5". This is ofcourse only one aspect of performance, but single thread performance is still needed at times .. like alpha versions of the games. I'm happy that my old dog senses said to me, go for single core performance and "handpicked" k-line. - Greets, i5-4690k owner.
  22. http://m.timesofindia.com/tech/tech-news/Worlds-first-microchip-with-1000-programmable-processors-launched/articleshow/52809831.cms This new terahertz 1000 core chip was just introduced. Can you imagine 100 times your current cpu speed? This will make computers AI and games go through the roof!
  23. AMD Optimization

    I have an AMD FX 4300 CPU. I know it's old, but I am still able to run consistently at FPS over 250 and for games like Arma 3, I can run at max settings at 10k render distance at 60 FPS, but when I played Squad back in december, my frames would not go above 15 FPS and did later research to realize the game was not optimized correctly for AMD CPUs, I refunded the game and am just wondering if this problem has been fixed and if it would be worth buying today. Thanks, ProbingU.
  24. Hey all, this post is to AMD users, it's for CPUs primarily, but also GPUs. Obviously I cannot guarantee that these fixes will work for everybody, but hopefully somebody is able to squeeze out at least a few more frames. In this post, I will give an exhaustive list of all my relevant specs, settings, tweaks, and software information in an effort to help AMD users get as much more performance as possible. First off; it IS possible for AMD CPU's to perform well with Squad! My current setup gets 50-60 FPS consistently with up to around 45 players on all maps. Even with smoke and heavy combat, I usually don't dip down lower than the high 30's-low 40's. This is with 1080p, Max Effects, max AA, 125% resolution scale, and max Post Processing, I can play with more than 45 players, but obviously performance suffers, but not too badly! I still get a consistent 35-40 FPS even with 60+ players and combat, but the lower dips in frames are longer and more frequent. While this isn't amazing, it beats the heck out of many of the horror stories I have been hearing. Some people with similar or even slightly better specs are saying that even on low population servers with lowest settings, they are barely able to get 30-35 FPS without even being in combat.If it is possible for me, then in principle, it is for others too, let's begin: (Thank you to Boxknife for the format of these specs). System: CPU: FX-8320 @4.6Ghz (CPU ratio is 23.0) GPU: Sapphire R9-390 Nitro 1100Mhz on the core (+100), 1500Mhz on the memory (default) Afterburner power use percent: +50% (Latest non-beta drivers) MB: Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Bios version: 2501 x64 (04/07/2014) RAM: 8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance @ 2133Mhz Timings: 11-11-11-28 (Voltage is auto) HDD: 1TB WD Black 7200 rpm Monitor: 1080p 60Hz Dell generic monitor. OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit with all current updates. (There are two hotfixes that Microsoft has put out for the FX series of chips that can help with some performance issues, I have applied both and I would recommend you do too.) These are free for anybody, but you have to request Microsoft send them to you manually via email, however the action is automated and takes a few seconds at most, no signup or weirdness required. If you feel fishy about that, I will link to a Tek Syndicate forum post that has both files linked for download automatically. I think they are safe, but obviously, download at your own risk.

Well that was a bunch to type, hopefully not too many people got bored, but more importantly, hopefully this helps some of you fellow AMD users out there to get respectable, or even just playable performance out of your CPU's and GPU's! A big thanks to the readers/posters, and to the dev team for always keeping us in the loop and working on making our experience better every time! PS: I probably made a mistake or two somewhere here. If you find any obvious errors, feel free to message me. I will be going over this post with a fine toothed comb again within an hour or so, possibly making some edits. I may also add some other details. New Content: Special thanks to user, "A Pacifist" for posting this new thread. He posted some new audio tweaks that may help some more AMD users that are having frame issues. Check it out! New Stutter Fix For AMD Users Peace out everybody, ~Shadow
