      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. Hey guys, I have following issue since 9.10: On the first start of the game, I can join and play one complete round very normally. On the start of the second round on the same server, or when I leave and join another server, I have an EAC unknown error (on Windows, not an ingame alert) and shortly after, I disconnect from the server due to EAC time out, this time with an ingame notice. I am using Windows 10 and already deleted the AppData files after the update. Does anybody have the same issue? Thanks!

  8. Hey guys, Does anybody know how to fix this issue? I'm having this problem since a few days ago. Never happened before. I must add (maybe it has something to do), that my clock keeps changing the time, don't know why either. It doesn't happen too often. Most of the times happens at the start of the game round when i join the server. The round ends, ppl leave so i can enter and then after a few seconds (from 30 seconds to 2 mins) it kicks me with that message "EAC Kicked: Authentication Timeout 2/2 error". Usually if I manage to bypass that time i get to play with no kicks. Is that i have a virus and this thing detects it somewhow? Thank you!
  9. EAC KICKED:authentication timed out(1/2)

    Every time I enter a server I kick after a couple of minutes inside that server.HELP !!!!
  10. 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.)
  11. Whenever i try to launch squad using the steam launcher, the loading screen appears and after it is finished loading nothing else happens. If i check in my task manager it says squad is running and is only taking up .5 mb of memory. I have allowed squad through my windows firewall and have attempted to launch the game using the squad.exe in the steam folder but when i use that and easy anti cheat error appears saying "EasyAntiCheat Error: Failed to create IGameClient instance! Check that the game was run from the correct launcher. Online play may not be available". If i start squad this way i am allowed to use the firing range but not allowed to join any multiplayer matches due to the anticheat not starting. System Specs: OS: Windows 10 Pro Version: 1607 OS Build: 14393.1198 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00 GHz 4.00 Installed RAM: 16 GB (15.9 Usable) System Type: 64-bit operating system, 64x-based processor I also own For Honor which is another game that uses the EasyAntiCheat.
  12. 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
  13. 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.

Second, i tried to run the game from the program and it gives me an EAC error: failed to create IGameClient instance!.

  15. Hi Guys, I cant play an entire match without been kicked by the message "EAC Kicked: Connection Timeout", I did search for it in the forum and at google, I have made all the steps mentioned as: - Completely re-install the game. - Set game and anticheat to run as administrator. - Remove AntiCheat folder and run steam game integraty verify. - Remove cache app data. - Update my network card driver. - etc....

  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. [Solved] Kicked by EAC

  19. EAC Kick

Hello, after 5 mins of playing Squad I get the error "EasyAntiCheat Error: Unknown file version (squad\content\paks\pakchunk1-windowsnoeditor.pak) in a popup window, after pressing "ok" Im able to play for a further 5-15 mins before I receive the error "EAC Kicked: Connection timed out" I have tried: Verified install through steam Resetting in game setting Reinstalled squad Reinstalled anti-cheat via squad directory install file Disabling firewall I searched the forums and found someone getting the same error, he identified it to be an error with a faulty RAM stick, I have tested mine and they are good, Please advise me on what to do next thnx :3
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
