      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.   Section II: Forum Signatures   §1 Signature Dimensions
      To avoid clutter, please make sure your signature (if you choose to have one) does not exceed the following size limit: 350x150 pixels. Your signature may consist of images, user bars and text elements, as long as the total size does not exceed 550 x 200 pixels. A small tolerance will be given, but any signature larger than the limit may at any time be deleted without prior warning. If you are not sure whether your signature is acceptable, please PM a moderator.   §2 Signature Content
      All rules of section 1 fully apply to your signature. We will remove signatures or parts of signatures without notice if they violate the forum rules, and infractions may be given.   §3 Animated Signatures
      Please refrain from using animated .gifs as signatures, they distract and clutter the forum.   Section III: 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. Hello, So basically whenever I click play on Squad , the loading launcher pops up, finishes loading, then nothing. Squad in steam doesnt even show "Squad - Running" once it closes. Occasionally Ill get a "Easy Anti Cheat has stopped working". What I have tried: - Restarting Computer - ReInstalling Game - Verifying Files - Deleted Squad %localappdata% folder - Uninstalled EAC - Reinstalled EAC - Started steam with admin - Started squad with admin - Cleaned Disk Memory Keep in mind that I have logged over 250+ hours into Squad so this is completely out there. I have had plenty of other squad related issues in the past but I have been able to troubleshoot, not this one though. Can't find log files anywhere for as to why it is crashing. None of it has worked. Any ideas or help? Thank you
  2. Hello guys, I was trying to play Squad one day but I suddenly could not join any servers, it would launch me into the match and kicked me 2 seconds later, inbetween the 2 seconds I could see a message saying "EAC Kicked: ????" I couldnt tell what was the last part as it was too fast. Afterwards, it would send me back to the main menu saying "Server Lost Connection"I tried to google all these problems,1. Tried to uninstall EAC and install.2. Tried to delete Squad from %LocalAppData%3. Tried to reinstall.4. Tried to verify game cache5. Allowed both EAC and Squad through firewall.Reinstalling did help me once, I lasted for 1 match before having the same problem again.I repeated the 5 things mentioned above only to finally give up, and I almost wanted to reformat my computer just to see if it works. There was one more solution tho, it was to launch Squad_Launcher without Steam. I did it and a message window popped up upon launching. "Forbidden Tool Detected: Windows Magnifier" Like... WTF man. So I tried to disable it by going through a tutorial to change the file name. Didn't work.I remembered the message "EAC Kicked: ????" and I was curious as to what it says. I decided to record the incident using OBS and went to the timeframe using Adobe Premier. To my horror, the message was "EAC Kicked: Banned"Knowing that I did not hack in any way, I checked my settings to see my ban status, and I was clean without VAC or Game bans. So it has to be an error on their part. I have emailed EAC for a ban appeal and I'm hoping that they will lift it ASAP. I spent hours trying to fix this issue only to find out about this.Hopefully the rest having the same problem as I am will finally get an answer, as most of the "Fixes" didn't work. EDIT: No replies from them so far... I'm so pissed off that I can't play this game.
  3. When playing after 5-10 minutes I get an error: EasyAntiCheat Error: Unknown file version (squad\contents\paks\pakchunk1-windowsnoeditor.pak) After about another 5-10 minutes I get kicked with the message: EAC Kicked: Authenication timed out (1/2) Checking my Logs shows: LogEasyAntiCheatClient:Warning: Client integrity violation. Type: 4, ViolationCause: squad\content\paks\pakchunk1-windowsnoeditor.pak, Message: Unknown file version (squad\content\paks\pakchunk1-windowsnoeditor.pak) Fixes I have tried that did not work include: Ensuring EAC is added to firewall Deleting pak files/verifying Uninstalling/Reinstalling Squad Uninstalling/Reinstalling/Repairing EAC Deleting the EAC Folder in the squad directory, then do the integrity Check with steam and execute the EAC Setup out of the Folder before you Start the game. This error Still occurs Anyone else got ideas? Please let me know if you need the logs or anything like that.
  4. In a9 all of my screenshotting software stopped working. So far I tried MSi Afterburner, ShareX, Dxtory, Greenshot, Fraps, Overwolf, PlayClaw. Programs themselves work in all other games. But right after I updated Squad to a9, it stopped working properly. Different programs give me different results when I try to make a screenshot in Squad: MSi Afterburner says Screenshot captured but doesn't create a file in needed folder: When I try to use Dxtory, literally nothing happens when I press a button, same with Fraps, Overwolf and PlayClaw. When I try to make screenshots using Dxtory and Greenshot, it makes files with black rectangles(1920x1080) instead of screenshots. But sometimes randomly it does make proper screenshots. One more thing worth mentioning is that pretty much all other functions of listed above programs work in Squad. Overlays of Afterburner, Fraps, Overwolf and PlayClaw work in Squad. Video recording of Afterburner, ShareX, Fraps, Overwolf and PlayClaw also work in Squad. The only function that doesn't work in Squad is screenshots. I can't use Steam, because Steam overlay affects my FPS in Squad. Problems with overlays, making screenshots and recording videos started the moment they implemented EAC(a6 point something or whatever). And this time screenshots stopped working after the update of version of EAC. I'm pretty sure this problem exist because of EAC blocking access of these programs to the Squad. I don't know how to launch Squad with uninstalled EAC(it doesn't allow to start the game with uninstalled EAC) to test if it is actually a problem with EAC. Anyone knows any screenshotting software which actually work in Squad? Do any of listed above programs work in Squad for any members who read this?
  5. [Solved] Kicked by EAC

    I've just tried launching Squad for the first time in a while and upon joining a server the game alt tabs me and shows the message in picture 1, and then after about a minute it kicks me from the server showing the message in picture 2. Has anyone had this problem?
  6. I have been playing Squad for about 1 week without issue. Suddenly upon launching the game the loading screen comes up (with the SQUAD background) and says "Connecting to the Content Distribution Network failed!". I have tried clearing my DNS cache, restarting computer, yada, yada, yada... I tried reinstalling EAC - same issue. Their was no software modifications from Squad working to Squad not working. Any pointers?
  7. So I got a pc and I bought and downloaded squad and have played it flawlessly since I bought it, But last night after I finished a match I shut down my computer for a while. When I came back to play again it wouldn't launch it said Missing EasyAntiCheat Launcher .dlls. I've read and tried everything that is on this fourm https://offworldindustries.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/221442887-Easy-Anti-Cheat-Errors except option 2 obviously because I cant launch the game. If you could help me figure out this bug I would be greatly appreciated.
  8. EAC Reshade kick

    Having problems with Reshade 3.0.7 since it still hasn't been white listed yet by EAC, I can get into games but end up getting kicked after a few minutes currently. I cannot find a download link for Reshade 3.0.5 or 3.0.6 anywhere which are white listed, so that only seems like a work around if you have an older version laying around on your computer.
  9. Hey, i got the problem when i install the latest Reshade mod from reshade.me and starting the game the EAC is blocking opengl32.dll after 5 minutes of playing on a multiplayer server i get kicked from the server can someone help me to fix the problem?
  10. [Solved] Problem with EAC

    Hey guys, I want to play the game, but when it started i get an error "EasyAntiCheat Error: Failed to create Gameclient instance! Check that the game was run from the correct launcher. Online Play may not available" - How can i fix that ? Because of that errorr can`t play online. I just get a Server Message. "Cannotjoin an Anti-Cheat server witjout Anti-cheat enabled"
  11. EAC timeout issue

    Hello, been getting an issue where EAC kicks me from the server for "EAC server time out" the first time then simply "EAC timeout" each time after I attempt to reconnect. I've uninstalled and re-installed EAC, but no joy. Any known solutions to EAC timeouts?
  12. [Solved] Still getting kicked by EAC.

    I'm not sure what to do about this... I've uninstalled & reinstalled the game multiple times, deleting the appdata files along with it each time. After a fresh reinstall, the game will work fine for a single match. About halfway through said match, I'll get a pop up error saying something along the lines of "Error: no windowsnoeditorpak". Right now I don't have the time to re-create it. In every subsequent match I play, I get kicked out within two minutes of joining, and I'm left with an error message saying something like "Error: EAC Authentication Timed Out". I'll try to post an update tomorrow with screen caps & stuff. If anyone can decipher my rambling and figure out how to fix this issue, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!
  13. Error upon Launch EAC

    I bought squad on 15-1-2017, After installing I tried to start the game: "Launch Error" "Error validating EasyAntiCheat code signing certificate." I already tried a BUNCH of things. Nothing so far has worked. Selecting squad as game for EAC and instaling it= Program Files (x86) > Steam > Steamapps > Common > Squad > EasyAntiCheat > EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe > Squad > Install = FALIURE Removed the EAC file and the squad folder in Local AppData Completely= Steamapps > Common > Squad > Deleting the EAC folder. + AppData > Local > Squad > Delete = FALIURE Installed all new windows / Firewall updates, New Global Signing Certificate Downloads (EAC itself recommended to do this if EVERY else failed. Wel. Even THIS failed. It said the I already had all possible Global Signing Certificate's installed! I am a bit anxious because I really want to play the game but I am afraid that if this takes to long I won't be able to get a refund if it would be for example, a costly repair or would take way to mutch time to fix. (Already put 14+ Hours into trying to fix this) any help is welcome! ^^ Have a nice day!
  14. I've been running squad for the past year without problems until now. I had some launch issues at the very beginning which i fixed using the X3DAudio1_7 file but i already removed it, redownloaded and verified the game files after the new download and i'm still getting the pop-up message about violation. Any tips?
  15. 3 Problems with Squad

    hello, My english is inadequate. sorry for that. i have a trouble with game loading times , eac anticheat and game in radio. firstable my system requirements; GPU: Sapphire R7 250 2 GB - https://www.techpowerup.com/gpudb/b2469/sapphire-r7-250-2-gb-with-boost CPU: i7 [email protected],93Ghz RAM: 6 GB 3 gb available MB:Foxconn H55MXV Series 1.0 Windows 7 64bit so when i try to join the server i must wait 5 or 10 min(This is so annoying) and eac It throws me. When I participate in the game in some way. I can not use the radio in the game.(Sometimes there is no problem. I can play the game properly.) I tried everything on the site to fix it. but nothing has changed. Thanks. And sorry for the language again
  16. Bought the game, trying to play, cannot launch. Sucks. Please help, I've been trying to figure it out for a week now, haven't found a single issue like mine. I CAN launch the actual game, by itself, without the EasyAntiCheat. I just go to the game folder and manually launch Squad.exe. I can play around in the training area, view servers and games, but as soon as I join a game I get kicked out, I assume because launching the game through the launcher also launches the EasyAntiCheat service... which is causing BSOD. I know it's the EAC because my BSOD specifically says: Stock code: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED What failed: EasyAntiCheat.sys So what gives? I have tried the following: Verify integrity of game files Uninstall/reinstall C++2013 and 2015 x86 and x64 files. Uninstall/reinstall/repair EAC service through the Suicidal Chair Troubleshooter. Delete the Squad folder in the %localappdata% folder. Run in compatibility mode, both the launcher and game itself, to run as Administrator as well as Win 8 mode. Completely Uninstall/Reinstall Squad So, again, what gives? Why is EasyAntiCheat.sys killing my computer? Again, the game itself runs fine if I launch it manually without the launcher, but EAC is not launched and I can't join servers. Windows 10 Enterprise Intel i7-6820HQ @ 2.70 GHz 32 GB of very fast RAM Nvidia Quadro M1000M Anything else? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated... I am coming from 10 years of PR and very much looking forward to Squad.
  17. Reshade 8.8 EAC kicks

    So looks like reshade's getting kicks from eac. Sadly the lighting situation, while massively improved, still kinda sucks and reshade/sweet FX was a brilliant way to fix the color grading. Anyone found a solution to this or are we sh--- out of luck on pretty squad?
  18. Hi guys. Squad has been running fine for the past couple of weeks for me.. however today when I try to load into any server I get a window pop up saying EAC Integrity Violation ural_engine_rpm_high_ext.uasset." Any ideas?
  19. Hello, i have a problem with EAC and that started today, yesterday worked flawlessly. The only thing i have done was to follow a little guide to fix better fps by doing these steps: In the firewall give an exception to; steamapps\common\Squad\Squad.exe and steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Binaries\Win64\Squad.exe - Rule exception for your firewall, both public and private network - Go to control panel>network and internet>network and sharing center>change adapter settings-> disable Hamachi.->Disable Tunngle, etc. There was more to follow in that guide but these steps are what i did. Since i started getting the "Disconnected from EAC" after trying to join servers i searched that up and found that you could install EAC from the steam folders from Squad. Didin't fix anything though, so i started reversing the steps i did. Though it still doesn't work. P.S I also deleted the config folder in steamapps\common\Squad\Squad and verified the game. But that didin't fix anything either. So i'm lost, so sad that a "fix" to fix the fps issues would make the game unplayable for me because of EAC. I also searched around and saw that the newest update made EAC unreliable because of their update, but since they rolled back the update it seems that those that had the problem, doesn't anymore or have not said anything more about it.
  20. Disconnected from EAC

    I've been getting this error pretty randomly since 7.0. Sometimes the game will work for hours, only to crash due to fatal errors, other times (like now) I will get the "Disconnected from EAC" error immediately on joining certain servers (but not others). It tends to happen more in full servers. Right now I can't seem to join any populated server without getting kicked by EAC instantly. I've tried the following (from a guide posted on these forums): - verifying my cache - uninstalling/reinstalling EAC - restarting Steam I'm not running any other programs like SweetFX either. I tried shutting down everything except Steam and that didn't help. I don't recall this happening before the 7.0 patch.
  21. EAC Banned

    Hey, I got banned on Squad today, didnt even get into a server or anything. Well, it didnt tell me I was EAC banned right away so heres what happened. So I bought this game last night (Sunday) and played with my friend for 6 hrs, no issues. I loaded today and during the loading I got a memory error during the start up. I closed it, reloaded, no problem. I tried joining a server, doesnt load, doesnt give me any messages, just doesnt load and goes back to server screen. I tried joining another, "Server Full", got that on a few servers so ok no problem. I tried joining a server with 46/72 and it doesnt load. Its not giving me messages or anything. I close the game, I get the memory error again. I start looking online for issues joining servers so I verified my cache in the game (I havent tried reinstalling yet, I see some people found that fixed their game?). After 20 minutes or so of leaving it, It tried joining again, "Server full" next server "Banned by EAC", thought it might be a mistake, tried another server, no messaged...tried another for the hell of it "Server full" and then just quit to do some more research and I got the memory error again. I have sent an email to EAC but can the memory error cause all these issues? Steam ID:http://steamcommunity.com/id/gameover_carbon/ I hacked years ago so I wont deny that but I dont anymore. COD 2 and CS were the games. Cheers, Royal EDIT: Tried verifying cache - No change Using Windows Defender AV Screenshot of EAC Ban Screenshot of Error that showed up just before getting EAC ban when inital loading of game and have been getting it even since when I quit now.
  22. Disconnected by EAC

    I just bought the game last night and play three rounds with some friends. When I joined my friends server, I went to join his squad then I got kicked out bye EAC. I thought it was a bug so I rejoined and same thing "Disconnected by EAC." So I went to see if their was any fixes. I uninstalled EAC and reinstalled it and still nothing. So I thought it could be where my game is located (On my portal able hard drive) So I uninstalled the game and put it on my main hard drive. Still got disconnected by EAC. I saw people saying that a program called Sweetfx could cause you to get disconnected by EAC, but I scanned my PC of it and I found nothing. I would love to play this game but I can't join any servers.
  23. Removing Files?

    Hey Guys! Like most AMD users, this game performs horribly. No biggy, the devs are implementing UE4 4.11.1 now I'm sure (is say 4.11.1 because that's the version of UE4 I am using, guessing they are too?). For the mean time, however, I want to try and help find a fix. I have pinned it down to two problems it seems. VOIP (which solutions are out for) and explosions when the debris is processed. So I want to remove some of the Unreal Asset folders from the Squad > Audio > Content > Classes and such. Will I get banned if I take anything out? Also, is it safe to change .uasset stuff anywhere? Are there things that WILL make servers thing I am a cheater? Thanks!
  24. Disconnected from EAC

    I've tried everything, uninstall/reinstall/verify delete this delete that. Redo this redo that. I'm really lost now. It's happening so much that I legit think I might be banned or something. I've read the pinned guide at the stop of the forums, but nothing works. I took a break and since last patch I think I've been able to play once over the 10 times i've tried. EDIT: I accidently put this in the wrong section if a mod wants to move it for me please.
