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) 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. Section II: Forum Signatures §1 Signature Dimensions
To avoid clutter, please make sure your signature (if you choose to have one) does not exceed the following size limit: 350x150 pixels. Your signature may consist of images, user bars and text elements, as long as the total size does not exceed 550 x 200 pixels. A small tolerance will be given, but any signature larger than the limit may at any time be deleted without prior warning. If you are not sure whether your signature is acceptable, please PM a moderator. §2 Signature Content
All rules of section 1 fully apply to your signature. We will remove signatures or parts of signatures without notice if they violate the forum rules, and infractions may be given. §3 Animated Signatures
Please refrain from using animated .gifs as signatures, they distract and clutter the forum. Section III: 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.

This post is outdated - since Steam Early Access you can no longer download Squad via Torrent. What is Torrent? Torrent, or more correctly called "BitTorrent", is a protocol for peer-to-peer file sharing (see Wikipedia for more information). In order to download files with Torrent, you need to use a Torrent client. A large number of Torrent clients exist. Torrent is frequently used on the Internet nowadays, particuarly when downloading large files. Torrent download normally has the advantage that it is faster and more reliant than a direct download. Instead of downloading from a single source - a server far far away, where all users attempt to download at the same time, you download from peers in your region or with fast network access. You can also download simultaneously from multiple peers. All this is handled automatically by the Torrent client. Of course it assumes that enough seeding is available (see very end of this post on seeding). If no seeding is available, direct download might be faster. I would recommand either using Deluge (Wikipedia, Homepage for download) or µTorrent (Wikipedia, Homepage for download). Deluge is open-source and entirely adware-free, µTorrent includes ads which you can only remove when you pay for µTorrent. Also, when going through the installation of µTorrent you have to take care not to include the crap it will try to install as well. However, µTorrent is among the most often used clients on the Internet. Decide which Torrent client you want to use and download and install it on your computer. ComedyInK has written instructions on how to use Deluge here. If you want to use µTorrent, follow the instructions below. All Torrent clients work very similarly though. Careful, from the Squad Alpha Portal you download only the Torrent configuration file (Wikipedia) for the Torrent client. This file is very small and is used by a Torrent client to start the actual download of the Squad zip file. How to use µTorrent for downloading Squad? Start µTorrent. The start screen looks like this. You can start a Torrent download either by providing a Torrent configuration file (click on the plus symbol) or by pointing to a web address (URL) that provides the Torrent configuration (click on the hyperlink symbol). If you want to download via Torrent configuration file, you need to download the file from the Squad Alpha Portal first and then feed it to µTorrent. If you choose the web address option, enter the link to Squad's Torrent configuration. You can copy & paste the link directly from the Squad Alpha Portal and click OK. The web address option is the easiest and fastest way to download. Confirm the Torrent configuration screen below with OK. Download starts. Wait until the download is finished. Now you have the Squad zip file downloaded. You find it in your download folder. You can also just double-click the zip file in µTorrent and it will open your download folder. If a warning pops up, click "continue". Here it is - your downloaded Squad zip file, ready to be installed. On how to install Squad please refer to the Squad manual. A final notes To help others from the Squad community to download Squad via Torrent, you should seed your download. Seeding is a term used with Torrents and refers to making your download available to other Torrent users in the Torrent network. Torrent is based on peer-to-peer file sharing. Other Torrent users will download from other Torrent users close to them instead of downloading the files from a central server. All you need to do in order to seed: after you finished the download, let the Torrent client continue running, don't close it. It will automatically start seeding. Please do this also for following days - just start your Turrent client when you PC is running. After a new Squad build was made available, lots of people will be downloading in for the following days. Contribute to the community be providing Torrent seeding. This will help Squadies in your region to download Squad faster than without your help. Thanks. Active seeding looks like this:
I bought Squad on steam and had no problem downloading it but when I went to launch it for the first time a message popped up saying "Missing EasyAntiCheat Launcher.dlls" Does anyone know how to fix it? It has happened on other games to different people and usually a game update fixes it.
The official Squad wiki has arrived - hooray! Read the announcement here. The user manual will now retire and its content transfer to the wiki. Read more about the transfer process here. There will be no more updates coming out for the user manual and version 1.1 will remain the last and final version of the user manual. The porting process will taking time, meanwhile please keep reading the user manual here. But bear in mind the manual is outdated and does not represent the current state of the game.

Download version 1.0 of the Squad User Manual (German/Deutsch) - translated by r0tzbua Download version 1.0 of the Squad User Manual (Italian/Italiano) - translated by Ganzino Download version 1.0 of the Squad User Manual (Hebrew) - translated by WarFox89 Preface The manual has come a long way. Usgu's "Unoffical Squad Alpha Manual" has grown into the "Official Squad User Manual", just in time to introduce our game to the new Riflemen and Early Access players. This is for you, guys. Using the manual Obviously, read it, particularly if you are new to Squad. I also think that even Squad veterans can learn one or two things from the manual, too - so at least have a look through. You will see some background information at the start of the manual and troubleshooting and additional information at the end of the manual. Hopefully, all useful stuff for you guys. I would also like to see that, where appropriate, questions on the forums are answered by referring to the manual, ideally with specific page reference. If that answer is in the manual, why would you want to write up that information again and again if all you have to do is refer to a page? Additional side effect is that people are being made aware of the manual and will be using it themselves to look for answers in the future. Basically, you have taught them to help themselves. That is always a good thing. A useful tip: When you are using Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing the manual, open up the booksmarks. All chapters are listed there and this makes navigating the manual a dream. Contributions Help from the community for this manual is more than welcome and needed. Post your suggestions for the manual in this thread or send me a PM. I am sure you will find missing or incorrect information and many spelling mistakes. There is is always room to make things better. If something is not in the manual but you think it should be, let me know. The manual will not answer all questions, but it should answer all game-related questions pretty competently. So if you see some questions reoccurring again and again on the forums and they are within the scope of the manual, put a link to such discussion in this thread and I will consider adding this kind of information to the manual. As I do not have the time to follow all discussions on the forums anymore, it would be very useful if you point out such discussions to me. If you have free time at hand and really want to contribute to the manual, become a co-author or assistant. There is always something to do on the manual, particularly after a new update has come out. Write new text, update text, improve text, take new screenshots, proofread, apply visual improvements to the manual. The list is endless. Any task you help out with makes a contribution. If you want to become part of the manual team, send me a PM. Translations Existing translations are listed under the section "Download" above. If you are contemplating to write a new translation of the manual or you are already part of the translation team and looking for more information, head over to following post for more information. Linking to the manual If you want to link to the manual, please use the forum post: http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/4766-the-squad-user-manual/ If you want to directly link to a PDF, use the following link - it will always contain the latest English manual: http://downloads.joinsquad.com/Manual/Squad_Manual_Latest.pdf Do not link directly to the PDF of a particular manual version. Very soon that link will be out-of-date when a new manual revision has been released. If you are in-game and you want to tell others of the manual, you type into text chat the following short URL (kindly provided by invisible.nin/SINE): http://tinyurl.com/squadmanual Alternatively, you can refer them to the "Questions" subforum - this thread is pinned there and easy to find. The manual even has its own subforum section in the main forum overview - you can't miss it. Other Squad documents The Cheesy Tactical Guide by =AMG=Cheesy_LeScrub - the best tactical guide available for Squad at the moment. Quick Start guide in Polish by LoneRanger - gets you started into Squad real quick, if you understand Polish.
Hi So yeah, i have two drives on my pc, i was unable to install it on my SSD drive, which is the only drive with playable FPS. I downloaded v5 to my main harddrive no problems, and could play with... 19 fps. no thank you. - and i have had no trouble in the past with the game.. normally i play with 40-50 fps which I think i fine. When i try to install on my ssd it says "an error occured while updating squad(disk write error)" - then i can OK - and try again with no success. any ideas?
A post by a fellow forum user made me think: Will the Early Access version of Squad work like any other game on Steam? Meaning that once it is in my 'Library', I can install and reïnstall in whenever I like, and on multiple computers. Why am I asking? I am a student, so during the week I am away from home, with a decent laptop that would also be able to run Squad I think. Will I be able to install the Early Access version of Squad on multiple systems like any other Steam game, or is it not yet fully integrated in Steam (or something like that)? It might be a stupid question, but I just want to be sure :D
A fellow comrade is having issues getting Squad to run on his Windows Vista (64bit) computer. I am pretty sure to have read of a couple of Squadies with Windows Vista. Please post below you are running Squad ok with Windows Vista - that's all. This will get our comrade reassured that he can also get it running on his computer.
