      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. I haven't seen any forums for this issue (maybe haven't looked hard enough), but maybe somebody has had this same issue, so I thought I might post about it. Every time I start a game my mic and audio work just fine. However, like midway through the game my screen freezes for a second and my microphone interface blinks, and a couple lights go off on it. After that I can no longer hear engines (yes just engines: logis, Tanks, and Heli engine sounds), all I can hear is the wheels moving or the ground being moved around beneath it, and my mic just doesn't work anymore. The little mic emblem shows but no one can hear me. For background I have a scarlet 2i2 audio interface connected to a Samson Q6 microphone. Pretty good setup, and works 99% of the time except for this squad issue. Im pretty sure its just a game issue and not something to do with the hardware. Is there any fixes for this issue?
  2. For some reason!!!???? When i press B or V to talk to my squad the action registers at the bottom left of the HUD but there is not little mic symbol next to my name and the squad cannot hear me. Like there is no mic plugged in at all. The game is pretty much unplayable at this point and I get kicked from good squads. I have a cheap Logitech H340 mic and also tried a shure SM580 microphone through a pre-amp and both nothing. The Logi microphone is set to my Default device and nothing is connected after starting the game. I restarted my computer to test every launch. Unfortunately there are no options within squad for mic selection as well so I feel really stuck. Fixes I tried - removing all sound drivers - re downloading mic drivers - Mic quality is set to 16bit - Mic works in other applications and tested in windows - I even upgraded to windows 10 just to make this work STILL I am a ghost.. I have seen a few threads on the matter but no fix. Anyone have help? Best, Phil
  3. Ability to test microphone

    Could we get the ability to test our microphone in the "Audio" tab of settings, or somewhere similar? I've played several games before where I didn't realize my mic wasn't coming through and I feel like that would be an easy way to test it, especially considering how necessary mics are in this game.
  4. I use a wireless headset and have custom mic keybindings (if that makes a difference). if you have any solutions then id appreciate them, thanks.
  5. Hi everyone! Go to the bottom of this post if you want to skip the back story. Just wanted to share my experience with Nord VPN. After I downloaded the program, I noticed that I my Mic was not working in game. I will admit, I didn't make the connection immediately. This problem, has led me to not play till today because community and communication are essential to my online experience with this game. It was a huge bummer to not play over the past month. Anyway, I spoke to a friend and he had me closely look at the changes I made to my pc before my mic wouldn't work and this is where I discovered that the only logical explanation was something to do with Nord VPN. I'm not a tech guy but I do know my way around figuring out somewhat complex issues regarding pc security. For some context, my computer was hacked before this whole thing which led to me taking multiple steps (not just including using Nord). After uninstalling Nord, I realized that my mic still didn't work. Since it didn't fix the problem, I decided to reinstall it to see what exactly was going on when it is installed. This is where I noticed that the VPN alters the .NET framework of windows. Again, I want to reiterate that I'm not a computer Scientist so this may be really simple to some. For whatever reason, the altered .NET framework does something to the game of Squad but not any other games I play. My mic still worked in discord, steam calling, and even CSGO without issue. Once I reinstalled the .NET framework back to what it was before off of the microsoft website, my mic was functional again in game. Hope this helps some people that may find themselves in a super confusing and frustrating situation!
  6. i know theres a lot of these threads but would appreciate if anyone can help me as ive exhuasted all i know about computers. when i forst bought Squad my mic worked fine then stopped for no reason.

  7. mic doesn't work

    Hi, I've just bought this game - seeing how people communicate over voice comms did really sell the game to me, however I'm having issues getting the VOIP to work on this game; I've also checked there are numerous amounts of users who are also experiencing the same issue but I'd like to know if anyone with a samson meteor microphone has the issue resolved or whether it's working for them. I've checked my defaullt input/output settings under steam > friends > voice and it seems to be working, it's just only in SQUAD I can't get it to work.
  8. Mic not working in squad

    Hello I've got a problem with my mic when in squad, no one can hear me. When testing the mic in windows it is being detected and is responding to sounds, when activating the listen to it echos what I am saying. Audacity can also record my voice using it. What I've tried: Re-installing the game Updating the drivers Re-installing the drivers Using a different mic Using different drivers for the mic I've tried messing with the quality of the mic stream to lower it (a suggestion on reddit) As for tests its quite difficult to test this issue as I have to go into the game and ask people if they can hear me in a number of ways, local chat, squad chat and then in text, and most of the time people just ignore you, so a single test can take 20-30 minutes. Any ideas on what I can try short of a windows re-install?
  9. Problem with microphone

    Hi, just wanted to see if anyone has any solution why my mic won't work. I have 2 audio options, 1 is my relatek microphone that worked perfectly fine, discord can hear me perfectly, steam can hear me perfectly. Then i have a USB microphone option, that has an audio options but no sounds comes out of it (supposed to have a mic plugged into it but i have built in microphone on my laptop). Ever since A16, my microphone won't pick up to anyone. It has no microphone symbol when it shows i'm in the squad, but before A16 they could hear me, even when the microphone symbol was not there. I tried going into steam and putting my relatek microphone which tests fine, and in the windows settings, where again it tested fine. But every time i log into a squad match no one can hear me. Any suggestions?
  10. Squad VOIP doesn't work

    The Squad VOIP doesn't work for me. When pressing "B" to talk in squad voice they can hear me but I can't hear them. I here the beep and their name appear in green to show they are talking but hear nothing. However VOIP in local does work. All settings are correct in game with volume set to 200% and keybindings set correctly. Anyone help? Forgot to mention I don't have this issue in "Squad - Public Testing" branch

  12. I just purchased the game today, im very pleased with the features and aspects of Squad, though there is a small problem I am facing that is with communication. I join a lobby I press V for local B for squad and G for command. Which I receive no reply. Sure maybe a prank may be ignored. So I get a friend on and see if he hears anything, puts him in my lobby in my squad etc. He hears nothing. Problem. I have a STEEL SERIES Arctis 7 wireless headset. Ive tried using default device configurations for the sound options under the control panel, ive tried updating all my drivers, even running steam as administrator. Hell I even went on the forums for hours and it seems everyone is having the same problem as me though I hear others on the game using their mics so it seems its not a large issue. Is there an aspect that I am not considering ? someone knowledgeable please help.
  13. Mic issues

    Dear community, Today I started to play Squad, but I can't get my microfoon working, Squad can't find my microfoon as enabled and therefore I cannot use it... When I am testing my microfoon with windows, discord or other games (like escape from tarkov) I do not have any problems with my microfoon, even on PS4 it works. Does someone knows how I can get my microfoon working within squad? Useful information regarding my microfoon: - Connected with a usb-port directly to my motherboard. - Qware headset
  14. My mic stopped working after the A14 update. I can easily activate the VoIP channels but no sound is transmitted to the game. I temporarily solved the issue clearing the cache within the game, but on the following run the problem resurfaced. I have this problem only in Squad A14.
  15. microphone usage

    I would like to suggest a microphone setting to be implemented into the squad settings for players who have more than one microphone. I believe the game uses the computer's default microphone settings as its default. It would be nice to have that setting in game so the player can choose which microphone he/she wants to use.
  16. I've tried just about everything I could find and nothing is working. My mic works in every other game I have, but not Squad. Any help?
  17. Hello all! I purchased the game two days ago and love the gameplay, I am having an issue with my mic though. I have searched multiple forums to try and fix my problem to no avail. I am turning to a post on here hoping someone smarter than I can fix the problem. I am using a turtlebeach 420x usb headset. Much like other posts, I can hear but no one cab hear me. The head set is designed for xbox, but works on pc as well. It works fine with any other game just not this one. I have tried setting the device to default and default playback. I have ensured it is set to default on steam. I have made sure everything else is disabled, and still nothing. I tried a program called virtual audio wire or something as was suggested on another post but still nothing. Ive tried switching push to talk in game and still doesn't work. My icons show up (local, squad, etc..) when i push the buttons but boo one can hear me. Only one time someone said I was really really quiet but no one since. Someone please help!
  18. currently im using a bluetooth turtlebeach 420X+ headset and whenever i goto speak nobody can hear me even though my name pops up in the corner indicating im pressing the talk button. I have looked at other threads and ive tried everything setting my mic as default playback device, plug mic in before i start the game, cleared game cache, and i even reinstalled the game but my mic will still not work. The problem only persists in squad as any other game i own my mic works perfectly fine i am certain this is a problem with the game itself. if anyone knows any workarounds to get my mic to work any help would be appreciated, otherwise ill just have to wait for devs to fix this issue . really sucks if i gotta wait cus communication is kinda vital in squad
  19. I have good sound in game on my TV speakers. However when I attempt to use my Bluetooth Turtle Beach 800X headset so I can talk to my team I have no sound once I leave the main menu. As soon as I launch a game or go to the shooting range there is no volume at all. If I bring up the menu and sound options I can no longer hear the audio test tracks. I have disabled all other audio devices in the sound menu of Windows 10 in the attempt to troubleshoot but this does not help. I have also attempted repairing as well as checked the headset in the Windows diagnostic and in other games. It appears to work fine elsewhere. Is there a hardware support issue in this game for my headset? Does anyone have any suggested work arounds? The game is cool - but not being able to communicate by mic with team really destroys the experience. Thanks!
  20. Audio problems in the game!

    I played the game yesterday worked great. I get I today and play a few games the get on this game.. my mic works great. This game seems to have a common issue with this problem. I'm an audio engineer and i have plugged 2 mics in to check this problem. Has anyone found a fix?

  22. VOIP not working

    Ever since I have had the game, my in game comms haven't worked. I have this issue on both my old and new PC. I am unsure what to do. I have made sure my default device in windows is set to my headset. I made sure my headset cant be used exclusively by other programs. I have made sure steam is using my default device. I have changed and reset my key binds. My chat icon comes up like I am talking on my screen, but doesn't come up for others. This is on two different machines. I have validated my files and everything. I use the headset that is plugged into my xbox headset. From what I have seen, other people have the same issue with that kind of set up. Going through an xbox controller seems to break it. So if anyone knows how to fix this without plugging directly into to my computer or getting something new, please let me know.
  23. Hello, Squad VOIP used to work fine for me but I havent played since V10. Now I tried to come back, I can hear people but people cannot hear me. Any idea why please? Thank you
  24. I have Astro a40 headset for PC and I can not get my mic to work ingame. I have disabled all recording and playback device except my Astros and I always have them plugged in before i start the game but it just won't work. I see the mic icon light up but no one can hear me. In my device settings, it says Headphones xbox controller Default Device I don't know why it says xbox controller unless I got the xbox version but I thought it was the PC one because of the mixamp. Any ideas? Thanks.
  25. Mics still don’t work

    It’s been forever and they still haven’t fixed the mic issue. My mic works perfectly fine on any other game or program so it’s definitely a problem with the game itself. I have my mic as default playback and have tried all the other supposed fixes but still I can’t talk in game. Is there an actual way to fix this, if not any idea on when the Devs will do something about it? Thanks for any responses
