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. 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.

We've all been there. Looking over a zone, wishing you could turn the volume down on the squad chat just for a moment because everyone is screaming over each other while you're just trying to watch your sector in peace. Contact! 30 degrees! And you cant even tell the guy next to you because of all the noise. I suggest we add a sort of "Headset down" button to temporally toggle the volume of the squad chat while keeping local chat at normal levels. Maybe have it so the user can adjust in the settings the percentage of volume drop i.e. 80% of current, 20% of current, etc. Or just have it set to one flat rate of say, 80% quieter or whatever makes sense. This can also be helpful when splitting up and you just want to focus on your fire team.
I have my comms squad and local bound to mouse buttons and find they get stuck open, ( random) and lately movement left, only getting this with Squad. Brand new mouse and now keyboard, hot mic happened with old keyboard too. Any solution or thoughts.
Windows 10 64bit All drivers up to date + bios Logitec G430 3.5mm Jack Default Device, check enabled & disabled device, check turning up and fiddling with audio setting in the Realtek software, check Mic works fine except in Squad
I got on today and got into a game and I spawned in as usual. However, when the indicator for a squad mate talking came on there was no audio, but I can hear people in local just fine. I have already cleared my cashed data and that didn't help. I'd be grateful if anyone has a fix for this.
I have turtle beach 420x and although there meant for Xbox they work fine for games like CS:GO and Battlegrounds. Yet my mic dose not work for squad. I then purchased Hyperx Cloud Stingers and set them up and the mic worked for other games, but again did not work for squad. I checked driver updates and did all I could by setting it as default and by disabling advanced features. If you got any solution I'm absolutely sure its not the microphone or windows at all but something with the game. Thank you for any help.
Can we please get individual mute buttons by each players name on the scoreboard (just like in Insurgency), instances like in the video below are getting FAR too common now. You can't get a decent constructive word in at all now at the end of most matches. Quite often squads would like to discuss whether they are playing again and/or making a new squad for the next round. Whenever I encounter mic spam in the game Insurgency I can call up the scoreboard and hit the mute button by that players name. That person then stays muted to me forever (until I unmute him/her). The way I see it if you are going to act like a child at the end of each round and ruin everyone's chance to communicate properly then your voice does not deserve to be heard be me if and when you decide to play properly and communicate in game. I've muted loads of players on Insurgency and have only reaped the benefits of it, there is literally zero downside to it. They can scream and shout to their hearts content and I simply can't hear it. Just to add, it took me 2 hours to upload a 13 second video clip to YouTube on my awful 1MB upload, my life sucks lol
So I bought the game this weekend because it was half off. Only to realize my mic doesn't work in game. I can hear everything, but can't talk to anyone. My mic works fine with every other Steam game I own. I tried setting it to the default audio device to no avail. Any more ideas? Specs: Windows 10 i5 6500 @ 3.20 8gb of ram NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6gb P.S Does Squad's team not have a support section for the customer? I've never had to rely on forums for an issue which occurs with the companies own software.
I use a mic connected to a Xbox One controller via usb. It works in every other game I've played and skype. The only solution I've found is to set windows default mic to the one i'm using but it didn't work. I've tried setting the audio to run to a separate pair of headphones and running the mic as the default communication device but that didn't work either. Any help would greatly appreciated.
Today was a squad leader on a server and I had a bad experience where by person has taken a squad Lead position and was playing music on the squad leader channel making it very difficult to communicate with squad members or other squad leaders. In the same game we had some one also team killing. I was searching for an admin to sort this out but with out any luck. I think we should appoint a supper admin that can access all servers and have the power to mute kick or give warning to miss users . ps- i would like to apply for this position.
Hello, I've started using a USB headset recently, it's all working fine with any application (audio recorder like Audacity and Skype), but it doesn't work with Squad. Audio (playback) does work with Squad, it's only the mic (recording) that isn't. I've disabled all other sound devices for playback and recording and the default windows devices are the headset's playback and recording options. I also looked into the game configuration files and found nothing that can help with that. The configuration screens inside the game itself don't appear to have any proper means of setting it or testing it. Do you have any solutions to the problem? Maybe an alternative driver to USB headsets that the game agrees with? It's getting quite frustrating at this point. By the way: I used to have an analog headset (audio jacks) and it worked with those, so it is not a problem with the radio feature in-game or anything like that. It is only about the game not seeming to properly recognize the USB headset input.
XenobladeShulk posted a topic in QuestionsSo I'm turning 16 soon, but my mom is still an Internet Nazi and thinks that everyone on the internet is a pedophile, a rapist, or a murderer. So if I start playing this game, where communication between your team is a necessity, would I need a mic or something? Or would there be a chat? I want there to be a chat because my mom would go crazy if she all of a sudden just started hearing me talking to someone over the internet. So a chat where I won't have to speak is preferable.
Rayyaan posted a topic in General DiscussionHi. This isn't a suggestion as the suggestion has been made (regarding a new scoreboard concept). This is a thread for the discussion of what a user or admin would find useful in a scoreboard. The pretext is that many players find the scoreboard to be a frustrating feature that gives unrealistic aid in identifying killed units and is a justification for a minority of players to try and appear on the top of a list. Furthermore, the end score of a person can be just irrelevent to what a person has contributed to the team (there are many examples of this). People have obviously they stated they would like to see the K/D or a score at the end of a round and before a round. So, now the 'Scoreboard' can become a place for practical information which could prove as a useful tool to admins and players alike. So, What Would You Like To See On The 'Scoreboard'? The thread isn't for discussing individual examples given (as some of them are very controvertial but have been mentioned in the suggestions forum), they are to generate feedback on what a scoreboard could actually be used for. Examples: Playerlist (obviously, possibly organised by Squad or Alphabetical or both means for functionality)Teamkills that each player has been punished for (admin use for banning)Microphone detection icon (to detect audio-input hardware, this is useful for admins (kick no mic), squad leaders (kick no mic, stop asking if mic and players)Idle Indicator someone is AFK for 10 minutes (for admin or auto kick)Squad Name next to player on scoreboardSquad Status next to player (Squad Leader tool: sets as: ATTack, DEFending, PATrol or ReGRouping)Ability to mute mic spammers in scoreboardAbility to votekick from scoreboardPlayername can be selected to produce additional information in form of tab/commo rose - see next bullet point for ellaborationSteam Contact Details (optional) Or Squad Forum Username or have a tab which displays this information when a player's name is selected (EG player's name is clicked, small tab/commo rose appears with options including, mute, votekick, copy STEAM username, copy SQUAD forum username and so on)Flag representing Geographical location (optional)Objectives capturedReputationNumber of times banned from servers or kicked (admin tool to recognise regular 'griefers', possible alternative to reputation system)PingClan/Community TagDefining Icon next to player representing special asset (possibly limited to Tanks/Air, similar to Squad drop down feature of map screen in PR but applied to scoreboard for quicker finding, could be useful for admin)What do you think would be useful on a 'scoreboard' for SQUAD?
