      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) 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.

  4. Hi everyone Si i just downloaded squad and im seriously thinking about buying it but im having serious issues with the gameplay performance. On training mode the game runs better than i expected it to do since its a demanding engine, over 150 fps avg on ultra. But on multiplayer its a completely different story. I changed servers to see if that was the problem, lowered the settings to the lowest possible and stopped streaming. None of this fixed the 10 to 5 fps avg i get only on multiplayer. What could it be? I couldnt do a stream of the game because of this and i really want to get into it. This are my specs Case: THermaltake Chaser A41 Power Supply: Corsair CX750m OS: Windows 10 Motherboard: Asrock Z97 Extreme6 CPU: Intel Core i7 4790k Memory: Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB Kit Hard Drive: Seagate 2TB Video Card: ASUS STRIX Nvidia GTX 1070 Headphones: Kingston Hyperx Cloud Monitor: Benq XL2411z Mouse: Logitech g400s Mousepad: Steelseries Qck+ Keyboard: Logitech g105
  5. Alrighty then! Disclaimer: I am by no means a techie and do not profess to know more than what I have observed and attempted to describe herein. To admins/moderators, if there is already a thread on this topic, I could not find it - so feel free to move it to an appropriate location. The title may be a little misleading as I'm not really sure if they (ping, latency, rubber banding and teleporting) are related. Definitions (mine) in the context of this thread (as viewed from the client): rubber banding (RB) is running over the same ground again and again; and teleporting (T) is arriving at a spot you were headed to but have arrived early ! Questions to be answered: what causes RB & T? AND how can they be rectified? I have a decent system, as follows: gtx 680 with 16gb ram, vid driver= 358.91/win 10.1 pro/intel [email protected]<script data-cfhash='f9e31' type="text/javascript"> /* */</script>/asus maximus hero viii with 16gb ram, a pretty good modem/router (Cisco DPC3825) and play hard wired. Frame rate is 35-40 regardless of video setting (medium, high or epic) Out of game ping tests to Seattle yield good returns - latency is approx 21-26ms. Out of game ping tests to NY#1 yield decent returns - latency is approx 70-80ms. In game however, ping fluctuates wildly between 200 & 750 regardless of Squad server or video settings!!!! Anyone have any thoughts on what's happening??? Assistance desired!!!!
  6. I have this exact issue I'm on a 980, I56600K, 16GB DDR4, 70MB connection. No lag issues on games like Grand Theft Auto V Online.
  7. I have a problem, when entering the squad on an empty server my fps is around 90 and uses 100 % of my graphics card already when entering a full server, my use of the card drops to 60 % and drops to 30 fps this bug happen only with squad!

  9. Hello guys ! I am using GTX 750 Ti AMD fx8320E 8 GB ram My problem is low FPS in multiplayer, i get around 20-30fps online but on singleplayer i get around 70-80 fps on same setting (high) So what setting should i use to get more FPS online ? Thanks...
  10. Hello guys. I have a server of squad. The server when it exceeds 35-40 players start to lag. Is really impossibile to play. I controlled instantly the server. And the server was using only : 0.5 % of CPU 5 % of RAM 2 mbps/s of bandwidth. I did a SPEED TEST. And the server do 720 mbps/s to download and 540 mbps/s to upload. For this i dont understand where is the problem. My Server is powerful but lag. HARDWARE: 1 GB of bandwidth CPU I7 6700 K RAM 32 GB DDR4 2133 MHZ Windows Server 2012 R2 Help me PLEASE.
  11. Looking into possibly getting Squad, but wondering how well I would be able to run it. Really wanting a decent look at playable fps. Is it possible? If so, leave recommended settings if I end up getting it. Specs: i7 3770 , GTX 750Ti , 8GB, DDR3 Also, can we expect some big performance updates any time soon?
  12. [GNS] C4-Yesterday at 1:44 PM all of my servers have been having massive lag since last update anyone else having that issue? Super bad pings and terrible lag and server fps at like 2-4 thought it was just my dedicated but BlueFangSolutions server having that issue to Tidrow.D-Today at 4:12 AM We have been showing the same issue @[GNS] C4 over at the 7th CAV
  13. Merely an informative post. I was one of those fortunate AMD cpu users that had no issues running Squad but playing today for the first time after 5.2 I noticed that I was getting massive frame drops coinciding with the radio chatter. I have my settings adjusted to give me between 45-55 FPS but today every time someone would talk my frames would drop down into the single digits. It did get better as the match went on but chatter would always cause a drop well below 20 fps. In the beginning of the game with everyone clustered around I was getting stuttering due to all of the local chatter. Stuttering such as the game would freeze for over a second and then continue. I did not play any during 5.1 but i did play after the 5.0 release so this issue could have come from either of the last two builds. Hopefully this can be avoided in the future.

  14. Hello all, My names NickHaldon, I've been trying to record gameplay all day today. I have a Intel I7 with a GeForce 970m. During actual gameplay I get around 30-40 FPS I think. I'm not sure as I can't find a FPS counter. I want to use game DVR on Windows 10 to record because from what I've tried it gets the best quality. My problem is that when I reach around 2 minutes to 3 minutes in the game will slowly start to lag and then completely freeze. The only way to fix it is to shut the computer off. I've tried it multiple times and each time it does the same at the same time. Any help would be much appreciated either in fixing this or helping me set up other recording software. Really I just want to record gameplay so whatever I can do to do that would be awesome. Thanks all! NickHaldon
  15. The game will be optimized right? First of all Squad does not look that amazing. Yeah, it looks good but it should not require a high end pc to get 60 fps on ultra/high settings or stay under 50FPS on a GTX960. This is not the final state of Squads optimization right?
  16. Hi there, everyone else noticed sometimes that dead soldiers are standing up and running at their place where they got shot? they stuck at their place but up-stand and in a running motion remindes me a of: https://youtu.be/YXNfHb9b6Y0?t=78
  17. Just wondering Is the voip run as part of squad with the program or is it separate process? Ask for there seems to be lot of breaking up of Voip at different times, maps and servers. Could be better separated as previously done with PR mumble?
  18. Titles pretty much says it all, I think that's what causes my lag (radio), but cant be sure. Like I'm walking around and everything is fine, then someone talks aaaaaaand here goes the lag. I did lowered my graphic settings, nothing's on epic. Windows 7 64b AMD FX6100 (6.1.7600.16385) 12g ram Radeon HD 7870 (15.200.1062.0) Audio: AMD High Definition Audio Devices ( Tritton headset (6.1.7601.18208) Logitech speakers (6.1.7601.17514) Logitech microphone (webcam)(11.80.1048.0) Internet: Download: 10.40 Upload: 1.55 Additionnal info / interogation: - My microphone broke on my headset, that's why I'm using a webcam as a mic. Could it be a problem ? - Tried to run Squad.exe as admin; same problem; - Updated router firmware and opened port 7777, didn't worked. Happens when: - After I got killed once; - People talk in the Squad channel (green) (proximity is fine(gray-ish)); - At the end of a round, when everyone is free to talk.
  19. Hello All! I am a BF2:PR veteran from version 0.6! I downloaded Squad on Steam and starting playing tonight. I have a decent rig. Processor Intel® Core i5-4670K CPU @ 3.40GHz My GPU is GTX 770 with 2 GB of VRAM. Windows 10. When I turned quickly, or was in CQB I lagged so badly that I could not really play. It would actually freeze up on me and then obviously I was usually dead since the other guy presumably was not lagging. Any help or idea are much appreciated. I am really excited to see how Squad develops. Thanks! Scandicci
  20. My specs : i7 3770 3.40 ghz MSI GTX970 4g Gaming 12 gigs of ram. Everything on low ,shadows disabled. 30- 23 fps on 60-72 servers. When 20 ppl playing - Constant 70-120 fps. Tried all the .ini tweaks. Another player has lower Rig and he gets 60 fps on high. What kind of magic is that? Please help me out with your time. Cheers,Brat.
  21. As soon as I started playing i noticed the lag (despite having turned everything down to medium/high 1024px shadows) ~6gb ram and ~12gb pagefile was in constant use, but as soon as i disabled my pagefile all together, rebooted my computer, it went down to ~3gb ram and ~6gb pagefile (at least according to the task manager and afterburner), would love some input from a dev and if you guys could investigate further whether there's a connection between this phenomena and if you can somehow plug the hole since I'm now running (almost maxed out) with the only exception for no fxaa/msaa and 2048px shadows at 1080p with ~30fps (depending on the amount of explosions/smoke).
  22. So I have this problem too. I had. I found few stuff which can help I have SLI turn on. It works perfectly in prev versions. I turn off second card and run just one. And spike lags disapear. I have again old good Squad which work excelent. And I tried reduce my os desctop resolution to lowest one. I got another +10 FPS in game which is interesting from my point of view. So before game I change resolution and turn game on. But most important is SLI. At this moment it create these lags probably. I hope this help guys. See ya at field.
  23. 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!
  24. I know its Alpha, yes yes. Dont kill for asking. But, the ping seems crazy high, lag is real, i have a decent rig. Intel Core i5-4210M CPU @2.6 GHz and its on Turbo using some program i forgot the name. Dedicated GPU is being used- NVIDIA Geforce 920M. Also integrated, which i dont use, is Intel HD Graphics 4600. Any solutions would be much appreciated. i want to enjoy this game BTW ALL GRAPHICS OPTIONS ON LOW
  25. Hey there, received the game as a gift from a friend and it's amazing! But I have problems… when I load into a map I get huge lags, like the game freezes, then when I actually spawn in and look around my game does the same thing. Very frustrating.
