      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.

  2. Mouse freezing in-game

    Hello. lately I started to experience problems with the mouse freezing. It happened lately, just yesterday (played for few months already) I'm experiencing this only in squad, and only in-game (when on the main menu Its working fine) also, I noticed its not the game freezing but just the mouse (keyboard movement works.. world still moving) Sometimes the freezing happen once per minute (considering it rare) and sometimes every few seconds. I wouldn't say its the mouse (hardware) because I experience this problem just lately and it is still, just in squad. Thanks in advance to anybody who can help Post script: I have experienced such problems before, once when played Titan Fall 2, there this problem started on day-1 very quickly, while in Squad I just started to experience this problem lately. OS:‏‏ Windows 10 Home 64-bit CPU: Intel Pentium CPU G4560 @ 3.50GHz RAM:‏‏‎ 8.00GB Single-Channel Unknown @ 1065MHz (15-15-15-36) MB: H110M-DS2-CF GPU: 2048MB ATI Radeon RX 460 Graphics Drive: 223GB SanDisk SDSSDA240G (SSD)
  3. Game freezes on start up. It will go to quick start guide with key bindings say loading top right. It will freeze there. Then when I use CTRL, SHIFT, ESC to go to task manager it just makes the screen black and can't access anything. Have to force restart, which just hurts me every time :). System Specs: 6700K Asus 1080 Strix 1TB SSD 2TB HDD 32GB g.skill RAM Asus Z170 Sabertooth Mobo I have tried restarting steam and PC as well as verifying game files. Anti Virus has been turned off. I have logs and crashreport clients. Where should I send them?
  4. Issue: Hey guys, I'm having some issues that is not allowing me to play the game at the moment. I want to go forward and also point out that I've played Squad since before it was on steam and this is honestly the first major problemI have had to deal with. What is happening, is the game starts up fine. When I go into the training map it runs flawlessly, with cpu peaking around 40-50% usage and getting great FPS. Now, the moment that I try to load into any server, no matter the population, the game loads in. I get the scenery default view where I can join a squad and grab a role. At this point, you can tell the game is literally unplayable. Everything moves in delay like when hitting enter to bring up the menu etc. Even if i give it some time, nothing changes. Now the interesting part here is my cpu usage is hovering only around 5-8% usage now and is not getting any higher. It seems that my hardware is not wanting to fully function only when in live servers. I want to assume that its something to do with the EAC system because earlier I was getting timeout errors. After some troubleshooting I haven't seen anymore of these messages and I'm not getting anymore errors, just terrible performance when in a live server. Spec: i72600 @ 3.89ghz GTX 980 Running off of 500GB HDD. 16GB of DDR3 Ram THINGS I HAVE ALREADY TRIED Deleting AppData squad folder. Full Clean installation of squad. Made sure to purge any squad files before re-downloading. Repairing EAC software Disabling Firewall/Anti-virus completely Rebooting PC Still having issues with only live servers. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Would appreciate any kind of tips or suggestions. Thanks! UPDATE: I FIXED IT. My solution After looking back into EAC I decided to try and not repair but instead actually uninstall it. Once re-installed everything returned to normal and performance is great. Who new an anti cheating service would mess up performance that bad.
  5. [solved] Constant Freezing

    So I just bought squad. Regardless of my internet connection or my graphics or sound quality, my game continues to freeze for a good 15 to 20 seconds whether it be in the menu or in combat, then itll continue to play normally. My driver is an NVIDIA GTX 660 and I updated the driver and it is still giving me problems. I turned off anti-aliasing and V-sync and I still get problems. I turned down my VRAM usage down and it's still freezin up. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have verified my games cache files several times and it's still freezing up.
  6. I've had this problem from the beginning, but I soon got used to it and simply never tried to quickly exit the game through 'alt+tab' while it was loading a new map. However, I have been playing Battlefront for a while as well now, and it has become a little bit of a habit to alt+tab out of the game during the loading screen. So unfortunately, I'm automatically doing it more and more on Squad as well, but it keeps crashing my game, leaving my computer unresponsive and forcing me to completely shut down and restart my PC. I have absolutely no problem using alt+tab when I'm in the menus or in a match, it only causes problems during the loading screen. Does anyone else have this problem?
  7. Hi there! I already searched the forum to find a solution. But couldn't find one. My rig isn't the best... Phenom X4 955 Radeon 7850 8gb Ram But I can play the training with good FPS on low and only get FPS drops when I am walking through the smokes. When I try to play a match online, I get stuttering or freezing issues. Feels like I have a lag and my ping gets really high. I had a ping of around 60 and when my game begins to lag, it feels like a huge lag, my ping gets higher and higher sometimes up to 800. I think its a problem with my network? Do I have to open ports? Does someone have the same problem? And which ports should I open? There are no FPS problems or ping problems when I am not moving. Would be great if someone can help :) cheers!
