      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. Everytime the UI pops up, if I move my mouse the FPS drops to 1 and. Happens every time. It stops when I exit the UI and go back to the game. Does not happen in the main menu however. On some occasions the game will entirely crash. This is not do to heat. I have a GTX 1080 OC, Ryzen 1800x 4ghz OC, 32GB DDR4 ram, and squad is installed on a Samsung 970 EVO nvme SSD I have no clue what to do. Its unplayable if your getting 1 FPS in the UI. Any help is appreciated thank you. (New to squad btw)
  2. Help with making a vehicle

    I've bin trying to make a vehicle in squad for sometime now, but im having a hard time since i cant find any tutorial on it. Is there any good tutorials on Unreal tutorial on vehicle making that is relevant for making them in squad?
  3. Dedicated Server keeps crashing!

    (This is my first time posting on the forums so I apologise if this post is in the wrong section.) Hello all, I've been running a dedicated server with the troopers mod recently but it seems to crash every so often, I checked the crash logs but I can't seem to find the issue. It's running the latest version of the dedicated server as well as the latest version of windows, also running windows defender. It has specs that can easily handle the dedicated server. Below there is a pastebin of the latest crash log file so feel free to look at it. https://pastebin.com/y4qSPr4E
  4. I have been playing Squad for a few nights now in windowed mode. I swapped it to launch and play in full screen moments ago, and now I cannot pan my mouse right after a certain point. I cannot pan my mouse far enough to spawn in, nor past the shooting range selection in the main menu to fix my settings back. Please help fix, as a infantryman I like and support the game and wish to play it.
  5. I recently purchased and downloaded squad from steam. I have recently been enjoying the game without issue. However, for the last two days a crashing bug has prevented me from enjoying the game. During online gameplay (and never in the offline practice range mode), the game will randomly kick me off the server. I never team kill or flame in squad, and the crashes have happened on multiple servers so i am positive that the server admins are not kicking me themselves. The crashes are unpredictable but inevitable, and happen in between 20 minutes and 30 seconds of game play. This is obviously extremely frustrating so if anyone can help me that would be very appreciated. The error message given is; "Squad Server Closed Connection". This vague error message does not aid in the diagnosis of the problem. Specs Intel i7 7700 Nvidea GTX 1070 8GB RAM 1TB SSD I have extremely fast wifi, with excellent download/upload speeds and sub 30ms ping times, which i know through the stat fps function in the console. I am sure this is not a connection issue on my side. I have attempted to delete the squad appdata and validate through steam. I have uninstalled and reinstalled squad to no avail. I have followed all the steps in another guide somewhere on this forum to maximise pc performance but to no avail. I have never used hacks or mods in any game (never mind any Unreal game) so Easy anticheat is unlikely to interfere with the game but who knows
  6. https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Utd2096/saved/F236sY This is my build. I tried my first game and it was great. Only had a couple fps drops/ lag spikes a few times, for a second or 2. Please read title.
  7. How can I help?

    Game-play hours: 2240 Objectives: I want to help the community grow, I want to get involved and to learn more about the community as a whole. What are the needs of the community that a normal everyday person like myself can do to help out(Please do not suggest something silly, like uninstall or go make a new game.) The goal is to gain some more experience, get to know some more people and hopefully be of use. Question is to the community: What does the community need; as far as servers, staff, etc What do I need? What type of skills/people do I need to have/speak with? Recommendations/Ideas? Thank you,
  8. Sumari loads fine but other maps don't, the map loading screen with keymappings appear but the loading never finishes, while loading on the top right corner it shows "loading *mapname*mapversion" and then after a long while the top right text changes to "Loading" and i'm sent back to the starting screen. Kamdesh used to work but now i can only get to the translucent loading screen with the rifleman running then the black "loading" screen with key mappings appear and sends me back to the starting screen with the error message "connection timed out" or "server closed connection". I've got 8GB RAM and an HDD, i did all the things normally recommended in this case (pinned messages in the support channel of the official discord) but the issue remains unresolved. it's a very frustrating issue (not being able to play the game i bought) kindly help me fix it.
  9. Game launching issues

    I recently reinstalled Squad onto my computer, and when i launched the game, i was greeted by a minimized black screen. I tried to close it to try and relaunch the game, but i can't even drag the window. I then opened up the task manager and saw that the game was not responding. I clicked on end task and relaunched the game, but the same thing happened. I can't find a solution, I've already tried reinstalling the game, verifying the game files, updating my drivers, pretty much anything i could think of. This is the first time anything like this has happened to my game.
  10. So my squad started to act up, It was fine Thursday playing it all day for weeks. Than this weekend about five minutes into the game, it crashes every single time. I have reinstalled the game, cleared the cache and verifty the game files nothing seems to have work. Please Help. Must play squad lol
  11. Multiplayer Loading Issues

    Hi, so I recently bought the game and have been trying to play on some of the multiplayer servers. But everytime I try to join I always get stuck in the loading screen, then with a result of a kick from the server. I will always spend 30+ mins in the loading screen before the kick, Any help please?
  12. Launch crash

    Hi, Since last night my Squad launcher fails to start the game up. Instead I get an UE4 crash report saying "an Unreal process has failed: UE4-SquadGame". The day before I did install a new SSD on my PC, but I played Squad after the installation and it worked fine for 3-4 hrs, when I came back a couple hours later, the game wouldnt launch anymore. The screenshots are the only things I get on my screen, after the minimalized loading screen, I get the crash report. I have reinstalled it a couple of times now, never worked. Thx in advance Walt
  13. Hello, I rented a SQUAD server and need help getting it tuned up. I'm not new to running servers, but today's games (SQUAD) are not like BF2/BF4 out the box and go. I've done some research but still need help getting started, so if you're able to provide assistance I have a TeamSpeak 3 we can chat on. The IP is; DANGER CLOSE GAMING. Also, how do I get the server to show in master list? Thank you, WifeyBiscuit
  14. No audio in Squad

    I don't know what happened but the audio was working just fine in Squad yesterday, but now I try to play and as soon as I boot up, I can't hear anything. I've already checked to see what my default device for playback and recording is, and it's still my headset. I really haven't seen much other advice so please help!

  16. Dragging Animation?

    So I've played Squad for about 70 hours now but I'm brand new to the forum. I was wondering if inputting a dragging ability has ever been talked about. This would be used to move injured teammates off the "X" so as to get them out of sight to properly heal them instead of just hiding behind their bodies, hoping you don't get tagged. If this topic has already been discussed, please just direct me to the post and I'll read it to find out what's being said. Thank you.
  17. Voice chat malfunctioning

    So I have this problem in my game where I can hear through local chat but not through squad chat They can hear me through squad but I cannot hear them. I tried to check the settings for both cache clearing and checking the volume on squad chat Anyone got other ideas?
  18. Hold RMB to ADS option?

    Before the A12 update, I was able to hold RMB to ADS as infantry. Now, I'm stuck with clicking RMB to toggle ADS and want to change it back to holding as it's easier for me and I'm used to it. Is there a way to change it to holding RMB and if so, could you tell me where in settings I can change it?
  19. Problems with the in-game map

    My in-game map is continually not working. The map does not display any thing other than the map it self, causing me to have to spawn at the base every time and have trouble finding my squad mates and enemies. I h ave uninstalled and reinstalled the game twice and I still have the same problem. Ant suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Low FPS On Fairly Decent Specs

    Hello! I purchased Squad a long time ago on my old gaming laptop and was never able to run it, however, a couple of weeks ago I brought a new PC (specs below). its a much better upgrade than the one I had, still not the best but I feel it should be able to run Squad better than it seems to be at the moment. In test range i can get up to about 50 fps max on medium settings, FXAA on, everything else turned off 1920 x 1080. Online (which I know would drop fps a lot more) I get about 20-40 fps. 40 fps when there is no shooting going on and more chilled area, basically back at base but still very rare. to some this is good, WHICH IT IS! don't get me wrong that's still good but when it goes to 20 fps the game become unplayable and no more fun and it sits at that when I am actually in the war zone. Not to mention this doesn't happen with any other games other than arma 3 to which ultra settings or low settings i sit at 20 fps no change at all, but that's a different problem. If anyone is able to help me fix this or give me an explanation to what it could possibly be that's causing such low fps, it would be much appreciated. Im expecting my specs to be the main reason though. Specs: Windows 10 64-Bit 8GB Ram AMD Athlon x4 950 Quad core Processor 3.5Ghz Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050 2GB Ram 120GB SSD 1TB HDD 75hz Monitor 1920x1080 Any help at all would be very much appreciated! Luke p.s Sorry if this is on the wrong thread.
  21. I've chosen the fullscreen option and clicked apply, but Squad doesn't take up the entirety of the screen, it just goes to a set resolution. Like, the option says that it's full screen, but I can still see my Steam in the background. Any suggestions or fixes to this problem? If you need a reference I can send you an image: Steam - Adrien Moreau
  22. Bug Help me out!!!

    Hey, I just updated squad to v12 on steam. When click Server browser the game start lagging on menu as the list goes on and get more bigger. Thus, the pointer of mouse is not movable on screen. Also when load any map after struggling, the game takes too long on loading and kick me out because of "time out", no clue what to do or how to solve it! Except Server Browser all other things works fluent and i am getting 30fps easily. But can't get into map. Also tried graphics with low settings abd cleared cache as well. Need help!
  23. Can't we have v12 alpha test until the final v12 release like Insurgency: Sandstorm is doing with their Beta(until release of the game), with updates and stuff, so we can all enjoy and test it? It's free labor... i think it would a great help for the Devs and people would feel much more involved in the game, and would mean a much more polished final release of v12 with our feedback and bug reports, etc... And of course this idea would continue in further versions.
  24. Can't find any servers
