      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. V16 on linux EAC problems

    Hi, a few months ago I made the switch to linux and I've been playing Squad fairly well using proton. Today V16 came out and I wanted to try the helis but everytime I open up the game I get the same eac error: "EasyAntiCheat Error: Failed to create Gameclient instance! Check that the game was run from the correct launcher. Online Play may not available" Any other linux users here that get the same error?, can't connect to any servers now
  2. Ive done everything in the following support link: https://offworldindustries.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/221442887-Easy-Anti-Cheat-Errors Reinstalled the game on a different hard drive but the game continues to crash after every game and makes me reinstall anti cheat.
  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. So to start off, I apologize if this is in the wrong sub-forum. I noticed in the "Forum Rules" thread something about contacting mods or admin regarding EAC bans, but I don't know how to and I'm not even sure if I'm banned. Skip to "more details" below for technical information about what has changed on my computer. Alright, so, I bought this game 2-3 weeks ago and have been playing it pretty regularly without any problems. Until tonight... I was kicked for an "Anti-Cheat Violation" and now I'm worried about playing again because I don't want to get banned due to some weird technical problem. Although I haven't even tried joining another server so maybe I already am, ha. What happened: I joined a server that I haven't played on before. Not sure if it's relevant but it was Warzone Chicago. Normally I play on Bella's BG, Firestorm, or 2fg Tactical. Played the ongoing round for about 10 minutes and then the server switched maps. I joined a squad on the new map and after about 2 minutes I guess (hadn't even spawned yet), 6 of the people left the squad, leaving me and 2 others. It also made me SL as a marksman. Then about 30 seconds later it kicked me from the server. I was thinking that I was kicked for being SL with a marksman kit, but then the client says "kicked for anti-cheat violation". My brother, who was also in the squad, was not kicked. According to him it said I just disconnected from the game. More details: Before I started the game I updated my GeForce driver to 417.71, which was just released today. I also enabled the new Freesync/Gsync compatibility feature that was implemented in the driver update. After that I tried starting the game but it hung on the splash screen / EAC load screen for so long that I exited out and restarted my computer. After that I was able to get into the game but the EAC/Splash Screen still took much longer than it has before. Also, Discord was running in the background which I don't think I've ever used before while playing (I doubt that caused anything though). Should I be worried about this? Do I need to find out what caused the false EAC kick before trying to play again so that I'm not banned? Should I revert to the previous GPU driver? Has anyone else had this problem? Sorry for the long post. Thanks,
  5. EAC .dll error

    I've played the game for eleven hours now without problems but all of a sudden the game gets an eac error untrusted file amdihk64.dll which is a system 32 file. This error induces a ue4 crash. system specs: I5 8400, 8gb Ram, Radeon RX 580 (os is 64bit)
  6. Hello. I probably don't need to do much explaining as there seem to be a lot of previous threads. However, after scouring this forum and multiple other sources and trying every solution listed, I'm at a dead-end and the game has become unplayable. EAC errors, previous to the most recent patch since V10, used to occur now and again and were fixed by clearing game cache and verifying the game etc. However, now I can't seem to start the game without an error popping up within a few minutes- This can occur while the game is loading up, while a map is loading, or during gameplay itself. It varies from pak file to pak file, but EAC seems to think they're of an "unknown type" and after the error message, the game closes with an EAC timeout within a minute or two. I did the ultimate test today and completely reinstalled windows and wiped my harddrives. Re-installed Steam and Squad completely fresh and get the exact same error when loading up squad. I have almost 3000 hours on Squad and only now has this become a persistent and game-breaking problem. A solution that hasn't already been listed (Certain I've tried every fix on forums) would be very much appreciated.
  7. I just got done downloading V12 today but for some strange reason I been having this Unknown file version (Squad\Content\Paks\Environments\surroundmountains.pak) that pops out when i reach the loading screen. Is there a problem with my PC or is it just EAC cracking up?
  8. EAC Security Violation Detection

    Hello, I've played Squad quite regularly almost 2-4 hours a day and stream quite frequently with the game. I was shocked after a weekend away from home I tried to play this evening and was met with: https://imgur.com/a/LzYlY "Squad.exe - Fatal Application Exit Game Security Violation Detected (#0000000D)" After reading various other forums, tips and suggestions this is what I have tried, restarts were performed after each; Uninstalled EAC Verified the Game Cache Reinstalled EAC Uninstalled Squad Cleared app data Uninstalled Antivirus software (Malwarebytes, if it matters) Reinstalled Squad Reverified Game Cache Stopped all programs from launching on start up outside of my Gigabyte App Center / RGB Fusion (RGB had an update this weekend) and Sennheiser Audio center. Deactivated Firewall In the JoinSquad FAQ it states to make sure there is no CheatEngine software installed, which there is not. From what I see this has been an increasingly growing problem. Windows and nVidia are checked for updates daily same with all other hardware/software. PC Specs are: Windows 10 Home 64 AMD Ryzen 7 1800X NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 16GB Trident Z 3200 Gigabyte X370 K7 Gaming If I can get any backup on this issue that doesn't involve me having to reformat a PC for one game that would be pretty sweet. Thanks ahead of time.
  9. Hello, I bought the game yesterday and have been unable to play on any servers due to this error. I am able to connect to the test connection links that EAC tech support has posted, but they have yet to reply to me. I was hoping to get some help here as well. I tried the general troubleshooting guide as well as several other solutions and nothing worked. OS: Windows 10 Pro CPU: AMD FX 6120 GPU: NVIDIA GTX 970 RAM: 10 GB RAM (9.83 GB USABLE)
  10. Hi everyone, I bought the game a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed it so far (40 hours in). Sadly, I cannot start the game since yesterday as I am having Easy Anti Cheat (EAC) issues. The following picture is shown (language set to Dutch): https://imgur.com/a/ge0Dnqb The EAC logs are not really informative: Info] [LauncherProgress] 100%. [Info] [LauncherProgress] 100%. [Info] [LauncherProgress] 100%. [Info] [LauncherFinished] EACAsyncResult: 4 Message: 'Failed to start the game'. [Info] Exit button pressed by user. [Info] Unloading the EasyAntiCheat library. [Info] Destroying windows. [Info] Exit. I followed all instructions in the FAQ to the letter but to no avail. Reinstalling EAC, the game or both does not work, neither does removing the game files in appdata. I have turned off my fire wall and virus scanner. I have also contacted EAC. Edit: I have not installed any mods or made any alterations to the game. My guess would be that it has something to do with a Windows 10 update. I am currently on: Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Build 17661.rs_prerelease.180428-1349. I am using Insider Preview for development purposes. Does anyone have a clue how to resolve this (other than reverting / reinstalling Windows 10)? Thanks in advance!
  11. Problem with EAC squad_launcher.exe

    Hey guys after the recent V11 update i've been unable to launch the game with EAC. However if i try to launch the game by simply using the squad.exe in the steamapps folder it works but obviously I can't join servers since there is no EAC. Here's a picture of the specific error message i get: I've tried everything on the https://offworldindustries.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/221442887-Easy-Anti-Cheat-Errors website. From verifying integrity, reinstalling EAC, updated my Nvidia and windows updates and clearing my appdata cache. The error is still appearing for me and noone else is getting it so I don't know what to do. EDIT: Just fully uninstalled and reinstalled squad, still same error. Any ideas?
  12. OS: Windows 10 version 1803 CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3301 Mhz, 4 Cores, 4 Logical Processors GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB RAM: 16.0 GB After updating to the public-testing version for V11 I started getting this EAC error. Seems to be linked to not being able to start the service (which is pointing to ProgramFiles(x86)/EasyAntiCheat/EasyAntiCheat.exe. I'm currently waiting for a response from EAC but it's....taking a long time, and I'd like to try out V11. I've tried a lot of things from online, including uninstalling my anti-virus, turning off windows defender, doing some cleaning and registry cleanup with CCleaner, uninstalling/reinstalling Squad and EAC, flushing DNS, doing a health restore from command line, etc. This happened both before and after I got the 1803 version of windows 10, with getting the latest version also being an attempted fix. I haven't tried it yet but am getting close, to restore/repair windows and see if that will work, but I'd rather only have to as a last resort. Has anyone had this come up or have a solution I haven't been able to find? I also can't start the service manually from services, getting the same error. If I happen to hear back or get a solution I'll be sure to post back with the solution. Any help is much appreciated, thank you! -Ratface
  13. EAC Game Error on Launch

    I recently reinstalled Squad on an SSD, and now I'm getting an error caused by EAC. Error Code: 20006 (Cannot create service(StartService failed: 193)) https://gyazo.com/a29fd5a4e26a7515255a25fa09863501 No idea why this happens. I've tried reinstalling the game, making sure my Windows is up to date, tried to reinstall EAC, etc, with no results. Edit: Here's the error log.

  14. Just recently I have been getting an error that kicks me from the game. I have tried reinstalling EAC, System reboot, uninstall/reinstall of the game itself and verifying the game cache via steam. Despite all of this I am still unable to play the game. I have attached a picture of the error message I receive once I boot the game up as well as a picture of the error message I receive when I am kicked from a game. This has never happened to me until recently. Any help would be much appreciated.
  15. EAC unable to verify xxx.pak

    I have finally made an account on here due to my frustrations with this. V9 was fine for me, I have roughly 300 hours in the game, but V10 is making it so that I cannot play the game anymore. When trying to run the game, I start getting EAC unable to verify _____.pak file. When trying to run Squad as admin I get EAC Error: Failed to create |GameClient instance. I have tried clearing the cache, uninstalling EAC + verifying game integrity + reinstalling, deleting Squad's LocalApps, uninstall+reinstall Squad, delete .pak files and verify Squad to redownload fresh ones, and there's other things I've seen scouring forums over this issue that I've tried but I have forgotten. Windows Memory Diagnostic and Intel Processor Diagnostic: everything's good. Antivirus completely turned off for all of this. As an end all, I wiped my hard drive and reinstalled Windows 10. Same issues. I can run PubG, Red Orchestra 2, Insurgency, DayZ, and countless other games fine so I know it's not my system, but Squad isn't letting me play because the anticheat system thinks my game files are old. I'm not going to ask how to fix this because I have sort of given up but I will ask: will V11 or whatever next big update possibly fix this somehow? I pray.

  16. EAC Security Violation Detection

    I play for about 15-30 minutes and ir freeze the screen and i must to SHIFT+CTRL+DEL and close it and i get this error: https://imgur.com/a/2ZqI4 What i have done: *** re-installed squad *** repaired EAC *** re-installed EAC *** deleted appdata *** cleared in-game cache *** ran squad and steam as admin *** verified files
  17. First at all, I'm a bad writer but not a bad translator. So this is machine translate, sorry fo that. I played on version 9 but after version 10 the game no longer works. When you start the game, you receive the following error: Verification of files, reinstalling the game,anticheat and related programs did not help. All the other tips from this forum and the steam forums have already tried and they didn't help. The launch SQUAD.EXE runs the game just fine, but EAC does not allow you to join servers, only to play on the training ground. Running squad_launcher gives the above issue. As it turned out, this problem is not mine alone: http://steamcommunity.com/app/393380/discussions/1/1693785035821769971/
  18. EAC unable to verify xxx.pak

    Just started to get this error lately as well, "EAC unable to verify xxx.pak". I tried deleting the EAC and crash report client folder then re verifying the game files and it seemed to work for a few days up to an hour ago now, very frustrating.
  19. Unexpected error. (0xC0020015)

    When i try to launch squad using launcher, i get this error,actually i get this error trying to launch any game using EAC,i'm hoping to find a fix before i have to contact EAC itself. And before you say reinstall EAC,restart your PC,restart steam i'll let you know i did tried everything including reinstalling the game,and i'm hopefull that i don't have to reinstall windows (Note:I can launch the game just fine without the launcher but can't join any servers due to fact that EAC is not running.)
  20. I am here like many others because Squad has recently become unplayable. Each time I boot the game and get to the loading screen 1 of 2 things happens. First the game might crash with an error reporter, and second my computer might crash with a BSOD. Specs: I5-4690k 16gb memory GTX 980ti Windows 10 V1709 Using windows defender, I tried using webroot to do deep scans and found no virus in safe mode or startup Here is minidmp - https://ufile.io/11rx1 BSOD results in 2 different stop codes, the first System_Service_Exception - Failure nvlddmkm.sys or tcpip.sys So far I have: Checked and forced windows updates Updated all drivers(only driver which was behind was my Ethernet driver, still no fix.) Reinstalled Squad 2x Cleaned and Validated cache Reinstalled EAC(As admin) Reinstalled DX No errors during HDD and Memory tests No errors on system file check I have literally searched through all 92 pages of software support looking for solutions, I have exhausted them all and that is why I am here now. I had been playing squad daily with no interruption, no windows updates or additional software was installed prior to crashing, just a reboot. If i try to run the game without EAC i have no issues whatsoever.
  21. EAC Launch error "untrusted system file

    Please, put to work!Since I bought this game (3 months ago) I have never been able to play it because of its stupid anticheat system. For those who ask me to reinstall the EAC or format my windows I already do it.
  22. Hello everyone. I'm trying to track down a solution to my OBS with Squad issue. It is similar to the issues many people have faced, where OBS needs to hook to Squad.exe. As a result, Game Capture will have an all black preview, indicating no output at all. Audio is captured just fine. Steps done: I've setup the option in Game Capture to use the anti-cheat hook. Also tried without it. OBS is running as Admin (32bit and 64bit) Have tried OBS Classic as Admin (32bit and 64bit) Attempted to get Squad to run as admin (Squad.exe and the launcher are set to run as admin, as well as Squad.exe in the 64 bit binary folder) Tried NV and CPU based. Ensured there is no duplicate Game Captures in OBS. Removed all scenes, created a new one for this express purpose. OBS log spits out the following: 22:18:00.439: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] attempting to hook process: Squad.exe 22:18:00.441: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] using helper (compatibility hook) 22:18:00.450: [game-capture: 'Game Capture'] hook not loaded yet, retrying.. It will repeat this over and over, never ceasing. Window Capture of course will not work with this game, and I cannot use Display/Monitor Capture as it is very laggy when playing. Hardware: CPU: 6700k GPU: 1080ti RAM: 32GB 3200MHz PSU: 850W Squad and OBS both on SSDs (separate) Any help on this subject would be massively appreciated, as right now I cannot stream. Thanks
  23. Reshade EAC Error

    Whenever I try to startup Squad, I get this error related to Reshade & EAC. https://gyazo.com/d642f34fda986103da8bc201c79f3d7b Is there anyway to solve this?
  24. Hi all. So I first got squad in July 2017. I could only get into a server for roughly 1 min 50 secs before I'd get "EAC Authentication Timeout 1/2" and then be kicked automatically. I tried everything to no avail for 3 months and gave up. For whatever reason, last night the game worked and I played for 4 hours no problem. Now when I open the game, the EAC launcher loads up nearly instantly and then shuts down, saying "application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142)". After I close that, the game tells me I have an "untrusted system file (C:\Windows\System32\winhttp.dll)" and then the squad game never loads. I can start it from the game files but without the EAC launcher, so I cant play online unless the server doesnt have EAC (so basically no servers). I reinstalled the game, as well as EAC. I've tried opening everything including steam as admin. I've done a few clean starts, I've tried setting the launcher, steam, and the game to compatibility mode, I've turned off my personal and internet firewall, put "-safe" in launch options on steam, and I've deleted my EAC folder and validated the game filed in steam. I've tried many combos of each of these and have no idea what I did different last night. Any ideas?
  25. EAC

    Tried to search the forums im getting this EAC error and some pop up at windows. It keeps kicking me out of the game back to server browser after while... any fix for this?
