Forum Rules 07/06/2016Introduction 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.

shaneclipse97 posted a topic in Hardware Tech SupportAlright so I am not happy at all that I was a backer for this game and see no end in sight for my AMD fps issues. I actually have bought this game twice btw. I love the game and the only thing keeping me from playing is the fact that I can run all other games on ultra 1080p 80-120 fps. I currently have a FX-9590 and the most powerful 780ti (ghz edition) Basically it runs neck and neck with every 980 ive dropped into this box and tested it against. Now I am one who thinks it is absolutely insane to build a new pc just to run a game, but i literally have not played squad longer then 10 mins just a few times in the past 6 months or so. I used to play every night all night but just finally could not stand the disadvantage of these frame rates. In the backer stage fps wasnt too bad at all on this rig. Squad launched and slowly my fps has lowered over time. I mad a youtube video to help other amd users and helped in a few threads. I raised a lot of hell. Ive been told My rig isnt good enough blah blah blah. At one point i finally gave in and stayed to 50 people and below servers jus to maintain a good 50-60 fps on ultra. I was able to live with that and then even that didnt seem to matter. Now it seems those servers do not even exist anymore. Fast forward to now. I had poured over peoples fps responses and a long time ago people w mid level intel and mid level gpus were getting 60-100 fps. So now im in a situation where I need to build a second pc because I work from home and my company is getting very intrusive by forcing us to run end point a/v software and other programs that will run 24/7 on my pc that i can not control or shut off. So that being said I thought " well i might as well do an intel build this time as I have maxed out amd and its current options" Now Im just gonna throw this out there. I get amazing performance on EVERY title with this pc. I also get pretty damn good fps on Unreal 4 engine titles ( ark, UT online etc) Even in something like ark who also is in early development even in its early days if i did have an fps issue everyone had that issue and I could easily adjust a few settings and get a constant 60 fps. ( Do you know how big the map is in ark and how much shit is on that map??) So this whole its unreal engines fault and just wait on them to update to me is bs. Mind you Epic games did say that they dont agree its 100% engine fault and also asked why didnt the devs of squad bring this to their attention? Thats beside the point and I apologize for the rant but it just really pisses me off because it feels like the devs are kinda avoiding the situation and could at least make this a priority as well as keep us informed of all new info they get or a road map or ets or something. Feels like its just been ignored. Below is where I discuss my main question of this thread So on to the real point of this. Im looking at buying a 6600K cpu. I will prob pair this w a 1070 or 1080 but would like to see where im at w my current gpu first before I upgrade as I know it has some life left in it. In my mind i think back to the fps I would see others getting months ago and am honestly expecting a constant 60 fps but really more like 90+ on full servers balls to the walls ultra settings. Will I be disappointed by squad once again after dumping another 500$ plus??? I honestly dont know if I can take another kick in the balls by this game. Im still pretty butt hurt by the original situation. I really do enjoy the game and would love to bring a bunch of friends over to this title from the battlefield franchise but its embarrassing to stream the game at the current state it plays on my machine. What would I see frame wise before I spend my hard earned cash?? I could always do another drive and os for work, so honestly squad is what is allowing me to justify this new pc build. I am a computer science student so I know my shit. I know all about the ipc of intel compared to amd. My pc is currently more then capable to run this game had it been coded and optimized correctly on a base level. Yes ue4 is not perfect yet but other devs were given these same tools and have been able to do pretty damn well. So will i be let down again. Also can anyone tell me what time frame we are looking at from engine updates to game optimization of when this game will run like its supposed to. I mean its 2016 and this game is running all on 1 core mainly and using 50% of my gpu. At this point I think its safe to say that squad is the most un optimized game that you can purchase on steam right now. I know its possible to get a decent fps because I see youtubers running gameplay that is only seen in my wettest of dreams. So all bull shit aside whats the deal??? Thanks for putting up with my bullshit and for your responses in advance.
shaneclipse97 posted a topic in Hardware Tech SupportSo I made a quick video on all the things that I was using and doing to try and make the game enjoyable and play at a somewhat decent fps. Hope it helps someone out there.. Some of it is basic, and some is stuff you might not know, either way good luck guys. All this has kinda consumed me the past several days, and I am going to pass on squad for now until they have it a little better optimized so i can begin to tweak my setup to get the game running better at this point when I finally get somewhere and get good results something else happens. Now my gpu isn't running over 50% usage no matter what I do and it just started yesterday after a day or two of good fps and fun. Its starting to ruin the experience for me and I dont want that so im going to come back once its fixed and I will repurchase at that time.. Good luck to all and see you on the battlefield in a couple months or so. http://youtu.be/JhkBCBTTv3U
