      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. Ive been having issues for about 2 weeks now with my keyboard once I begin to play Squad. Seems anytime i join a server my keyboard begins to rapidly and repetitively begin to type the number "9". So upon pressing "J" to talk to all, my text box would look something like this " 99999999999999h9999999e9999999l99999999l99999o". I tried typing hello as normal and a bunch of 9s' would fill themselves in. So ive turned off sticky keys, even though 9 is never used in squad. I have updated all drivers related to my keyboard. I have updated all my graphic drivers and audio drivers. I have tried other games and had no luck in reproducing the issue. I have reinstalled squad twice and cleared cache every time i start the game. I tried using multiple keyboards and had the same thing happen, on 3 different keyboards and tried different usb ports for each keyboard. Also, once the issue begins in Squad it does not stop even if i disconnect the keyboard from the USB drive. In fact it continues to carry on even out of game. Ill open my start bar and 9s' will appear in the search bar on the start menu. I open any web browser and the 9's appear in the search bar or address bar. The only time i can get the 9's to stop is if i hold down CTRL or ALT on the keyboard. Then the issues halts as long as i hold down CTRL or ALT. Hours of research on anyone whose has maybe had the same problem only seems to come up with people who have laptops with failing keyboards. So im a little bit of a loss and the issue only arises if i play squad. I have had had no luck in reproducing the issue playing any other game. Only a force restart solves the issue entirely unitl the next time i play squad. Any help or thoughts would be amazing.. Thank you all
  2. Hey there, Firs time posting :^) anyway having alot of trouble trying to mess around with my keybindings such as everything I have found is just people going into the ini file and changing it on there, but it seems like its missing move forward and stuff but I see it in other peoples screen shots, maybe the latest update has changed something? mainly the main one is removing the keybinding from W to move forward I want it unbound but cant find anything to do with player movement please advise.
  3. I'm not sure if anyone has noticed it but I have multiple keyboard layouts (English and Macedonian(Cyrillic)) and the default windows toggle hotkey for them is Alt + Shift which is quite a common combo in game, especially when you run and look around so the keyboard switches to Cyrillic. But unlike other games, some of the game controls do not pick up on it, for example pressing any of the letter keys will not trigger a command as they are now in Cyrillic. Is it possible to make the game ignore whatever keyboard language layout is selected and use standard latin keys? It's quite annoying having to disable the multiple keyboard layouts every time before playing Squad.
  4. Hi, I just have started playing Squad last week using an old headset from Roccat. Yesterday the mircrophone broke and I have bought a headset from Roccat again, the Roccat Khan AIMO. Unfortunately the keyboard does not work anymore in Squad. I can chose between the Speakers and the Headset (I only use the headset when I am playing Squad...most of the time the sound comes out of the speakers) and for squad I just switch the audio source from the speakers to the headset. After the game is loaded the keyboard is dead...even the windows button does not work anymore as well as Alt+F4. Weird is that when I open a Word-File in the background prior to starting Squad all my input can be seen in the Word document after I close the game. If I start the game with the speakers as audio source the keyboard is working FINE without any problems, only when I choose the Headset as audio source this error occurs. All this is only the case for Squad...other Games like The Witcher 3 or Fallout 4 work perfectly fine with the headset and the keyboard. Any solutions?

  5. Hi there, I'd like to make a suggestion to have the ability to use combination keyboard commands. For example when I try to use "ctrl+t" or any other combination it only registers as the first button in the combination rather than accept both. This makes gameplay clumsy for me. Also would like the ability to map the same key to multiple commands. Thanks

  7. I'm cursed. Growing up, my dad was a lefty and had the mouse on the left side of the keyboard. I always thought that the arrow keys made more sense than ASDW. I've tried to re-wire the muscle memory, believe me, I have. I've tried to just shift the keyboard over and use the ASDW with my right hand, but after a while my wrist begins to hurt because it's never ergonomically right. Please allow us to bind all keys, including the Delete key. I use this key as my "Q" key. Instead, there should be a button or perhaps holding the escape key to clear a key bind. Thanks! On a side note, for some reason the 0-6 on my numpad will bind but not work in game, not sure if that's a bug. It used to work before.
  8. Hi, so I just bought the game, and upon installing it I encountered the same nuisance I do with most games, namely that I have to rebind all the default controls before I can start playing. I use a dvorak keyboard, so the layout is completely different from QWERTY, meaning that instead of moving with WASD, I'm using ;AOE etc. Now some games, like Project Reality, detects that you're not using QWERTY, and makes these changes automatically when you start the game, but other games do not, which means you either have to rebind everything manually, or switch to QWERTY when you're playing the game (which is not ideal because many games involve typing in one way or another). I don't know if adding this feature to the game would be a lot of hassle, and I realize it's a problem that only affects a minuscule portion of your user base. I certainly don't want you to take resources away from developing the game if making these changes requires much effort, but if it's a relatively easy fix, it would be a nice touch.
