      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. Hello, and before i continue, sorry for my bad english I've been playing Squad since V8 Alpha version. I noticed alot of changed since then, from performance that improves FPS, to the game engine itself that becomes more smooth. I respect their (Devs) work, they did an amazing job at it. I know this game is still heavily under developement, performance wise, and also the "Core" of the game itself. And I do realise, that many people that played squad, must've a descent PC in order to run this game smoothly. But for some people like me, that has a potato (rather) PC specs (yes we should upgrade, but i can't because of certain thing), can't quite enjoy the game fully. There's indeed some maps that runs smoothly on my PC at Medium Setting and have average 40FPS (Like Chora). But, for the forest one, i have an FPS drop, say to like having 15 - 30 fps only. And i already have lower the graphic down. Not that i blame the dev's or anything, yes it's my fault for having this potato PC, but can we ask for "View Distance" option to be added into the game? Like what PR has. View distance helps alot to improves FPS on people that are using potato PC like me, by reducing the rendered world (including the ground itself, so basically cannot see further than that in anyway) that visible to the player. Say, i want to set the View Distance to only 500 meters, so i just set it to 500 meters. And i think that this feature cannot be abused since it's only to help people with low spec PC to improve FPS, and not anything else, since we cannot see further than 500 meters. It is a disadvantage for us, but worth for the FPS improvement So, i request Devs to kindly add View Distance Option to be added into the game (Just like the one in PR), nothing more but just to help some people that has low pc spec that still want to enjoy this game, to improve their FPS. Thanks in advantage, i hope i hear what you guys think about this
  2. Hello Squaders, I know there are tons of FPS topics already and I searched through a bunch I'm wondering is there any NEW way to increase FPS? This is NOT a discussion about getting new hardware or disputes between Intel and AMD I simply would like suggestions or help. Currently getting 40-45 fps on almost every map however in heavy combat I drop to about 30-40. My rig: Athlon x4 860K Quad Core 4.0 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4096 MB 16GB ddr3 ram windows 10 Things ive tried: lowered maxaudiothing to 96 from default all settings preset LOW Ingame Ive gone in the INI files and changed things to 0 based on forum posts ive read turned audio to low quality and filtering off drivers updated Any ideas on how to increase FPS besides buying a new processor (i know i need a better one) I dont care how the game looks i just want to be able to play with 50-60 fps at least!
  3. gpu/cpu utilization questions

    GTX 980, amdfx 6300 4ghz, 100 gig SSD with only squad on it, 8 gigs 1600 mhz I'm having an issue regarding utilization and usage of my cpu and gpu... so to start, if i go into fire range, change map to, really any of the maps... and spawn in, my gpu and vram usage is around 70-80%, cpu 50-60%, and 120 FPS on low settings.... and thats with nothing but the map and what not loaded in. when i join a multiplayer game, my gpu and vram usage from the point of joining the game, to the point of actually spawning in, is high, and fps is good.... but as soon as i spawn in, gpu and vram usage DECREASES and fps drops in the toilet.... My question is, shouldn't it be the opposite? Why is the game using less gpu/vram/cpu when actually playing, versus when in the spawn menu.... Shouldn't it be using more? and just to ad, while in multiplayer gpu/vram usage is around 10-15% sometimes lower.... but its using also nearly 7.1 gigs of RAM... and my fps tanks.... and even sometimes i can spawn in, and gpu/vram/cpu usage while be high and i will have great fps, only to go drop back down along with my FPS 10 minutes into the game.... is this hardware related? engine related? Settings? lack of optimization related(being alpha is expected)?
  4. Another low FPS thread

    Hi all, New to the game (~20 hours played), love it, but can't get consistent 30fps or even 20 for that matter. Game typically ends up being a 10 FPS slideshow most of the time and thus becomes near unplayable despite that I run with settings at the lowest possible. PC SPECS Windows 7 64-bit i7-960 @ 3.2GHz 16GB triple-channel DDR3 @ 534MHz GTX 1060 6GB I believe my processor may be the issue(it does run rather hot), but I see other threads where people have lower specs than mine are complaining about getting 50 fps rather than 60, and I can't even get a consistent 30. Any and all help is appreciated
  5. (Little DISCLIAMER: I'm not trying to pick a fight or participate in any war with users and their builds. I'm just making a point. Attack the post at will, it wont change it.) So after owning Squad and other games (new and old) for some time now, I've noticed something that's pretty common nowadays... AMD Processors under-performing in games. This forum is littered with questions, comments, and concerns about in-game performance, but I think someone needs to hit the nail on the head so all this talk about AMD vs. Intel is over. I have an AMD FX Eight Core 8350 Black Edition APU. It's Intel Competitor being the Intel i7 4770K (I do not own it, but I know a lot about Intel and AMD as an IT and Computer Science wizard.). My build is also equip with 8GB RAM and a GeForce GTX 960 GPU with 2GB VRAM and never had issues. In many games, the AMD processor handles well along side with the Intel Processor. However, with Squad, it's a whole different story. Is the AMD Processor worst for Squad? YES. And this stands for other games as well (except for some). Only continue if you want to get into specs. The AMD Processor line is known to have one "big thing" over Intel... The amount of cores the processors have. However this still doesn't peak any performance because Intel gets more in depth with their processors and manufacture them better. Intel's Specs over AMD: More Energy Efficient, Much faster single-core int speed, Much faster single-core fp speed, Much faster quad-core int speed, Much faster quad-core fp speed, Slightly faster multi-core int speed, Much faster multi-core fp speed, and the overclocked settings compared to AMD also almost adds 50% more effective power to the results.. The Intel i7 4770K has an overall effective speed of 78%. Which is 39% BETTER than AMD. Not just for gaming too... In proper English; Intel's cores are more 'intelligent' and can solve equations and tasks the games or programs throw at them MUCH faster than AMD can. So in this case, more cores is not better. It's actually a waste. So this means Intel is a far superior CPU with a slightly more heavy price tag. You get what you pay for with AMD... Not bashing AMD in any way. Participate in the polls if you'd like I hope that the game can be optimized for better performance on AMD APU's if possible. See the results for yourself if you'd like. http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-4770K-vs-AMD-FX-8350/1537vs1489
  6. High End PC: Low Performance

    I recently have been playing Squad alot and I usually get around 50 fps on low in fire fights. I hear that setting Squad to "high priority" in the task manager boosts fps and setting your gpu to "prefer maximum performance" instead of "optimal power" helps aswell. My main question is that if using these settings are safe for your computor. I don't want to harm my computor in any way by using these settings but I want to get a higher fps. I have never had FPS problems with this pc besides this game. I know that the game is in alpha and is unoptimized, but i still feel that i should be getting better performance with my rig. After each update I clear my cache too. For a while now I've been thinking that something is wrong because I never have difficulty running a game with my setup.

  7. Every since I started playing, I've always tried to think of a ranking system; that didn't make it just another FPS multiplayer "CoD" copy cat/rip off. Some had to do with only lvling up when you win a game, while losing a game would either do nothing; or you'd be penalized and face the possibility of being demoted (similar to how ranked matches work in MOBAS). The only problem with this is some times, you'll join a game and it'll be close to being over and would make joining each server a bit risky. A good offset for this would be not counting those matches, but there are times when you'll join an almost full server, and when the game is over; everyone disconnects, which in return makes that server baron and boring. Obviously this could be possible further down the line, but who knows. Aside from that one, I recently just came up with one that isn't a ranking system, but a "Rating System". This is great for every class, but mainly SL (Squad Leaders). There are many times where I'll get into a game, and I'll recognize SL from a game I had played with days, if not a full week ago; and know he is a good leader. There have even been times where I've been recognized (some good and some bad). What if there was a way, where at the end of each match (unless you were only in the game for 10 minutes or less) everyone gets the opportunity to rate their SQUAD members and ONLY THEIR SQUAD members, on either a scale of 1-10 or even custom titles (that pass a profanity filter) i.e: Great SL, Horrible Medic, Troll, Follows Orders, Team Player, Crap Mic, ext., While SL can rate other SL. Then once a title is made (Green being good ones, red being bad ones) it appears next to there name when scrolled over it in the player menu or at the end of a match. At which point, if there is a title there that a player likes and agrees with, the can give it a +1. If they don't, they can give it a -1, good or bad. For example, if you had a great SL and you see someone gave him the title "Great SL" you can +1 that, but then you see "Bad SL" or "Bad Mic" and you didn't see any of those to be true, you can give them a -1. If a negative title gets enough -1s, it will be removed. This would be great for any player/class. Good Medic, Great Scout, Team Player, No Mic, Lone Wolf, CoD Player (lawl). Adding something like this makes it so we have a ranking system with out any type of XP. Players can maintain a their "Rank" in being a good medic, SL, or just a good player in general. And if a player has a negative (red) title they want to get rid of, the have know exactly what to focus on. Whether its buying a new mic or simply realizing THIS ISN'T FREAKING CoD!! There's a lot of room for trolling, but I feel like a majority of the community takes this game pretty serious and it wouldn't be taken advantage of. Please give me your feedback on what your thoughts on these ranking/rating systems and even some ranking systems that you've thought of.
  8. Hello Squad Community, so to get to the Problem right away i have heavy Performance Problems with my game my specs are: Graphix: Gt750ti 4gb Vram RAM:8 Gb of RAM CPU: AMD FX 6350 6x3,90 Ghz Motherboard: Gigabyte 990FX Gaming So i really like this Game but the game is not that enjoyable if it runs at 30 FPS on some maps i get 40 btw. I dont know if its my Hardware or the game itself wich causes the Problems any fixes? Thx for any help Apologize for my bad english deniz78093
  9. Hi I recently noticed while playing around with motar feature in Singelplayer on different maps that UE 4 version used in Squad or its implimentation seems to have a big Drawcall Bottleneck additionaly to the well known MP problems. Settings: All Epic NO SS,AA FHD E.G Chora ASS V2 via Adminchangemap ... gives around 70-90 FPS while GPU is at 50% usage,CPu has one core At 80% load on full clock rest 30-50% with some cores even downclocking, gamethreat is 6 ms while rest around 20ms, This observation is present through the whole mapline with a higher impact in heavy vegatation areas/maps. For me this is reproducable on my 3 Rigs so i doubt this is a PC specific Problem: Dual Xeon E5-2687W ; GTX 1060 ; 128 Gb Ram ;Win 7 I7 4790 ; GTX 1060; 16 Gb Ram ; Win 7 I7 5820K , GTX 1080 , 64 Gb Ram ; Win 7 & 10 Can other People reproduce this ? After searching UE Forums i found this : https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?49169-POM-material&p=624232&viewfull=1#post624232 Seems like with UE 4.14 ( version Squad is using) Materials have a bug that can lead to massive Performance decrease by causing high drawcalls in some cases.
  10. Hello everyone, i recently gave project reality a go and must say that i really liked it. However, at certain times its hard to get a good game going in Europe. Needless to say im also rather interested in Squad. I just wanted to ask you guys whether my Pc could run the game fairly smooth Heres my setup: Intel i7 3770(non-k)@3,4 GHz GTX970 4gb by Zotac 12 Gb Ram 120 Gb SSD 1 TB HDD Running on Windows 10 I really want to dive into this game but i cant play it if my PC cant handle to run [email protected] 60Fps. So any tips by the community would be much appreciated! Cheers, Mo
  11. Anyone using the Game Mode? If so do you see any Performance Improvements? It seems that Streamers will benefit the most with this new Windows Update
  12. Another optimization topic

    1. Ok, first of all i understand what an alpha is and the fact that everything is subject to change, but my question is: 2. I am a PR player, and checked out squad during the free weekend, loved the game except one major part of it: the performance. I understand that optimization is not a priority now, and i agree with that fact that devs should focus on features first and lastly on optimization, because that's the natural way game development should work. 3. So my question is: after optimization will finally be done, could i expect a stable 60 fps? That is the only question keeping me from making the purchase, i have no problem waiting for that optimization and supporting the devs with purchasing the game as of its current state. I just want to know if optimization will improve the performance to that extent. And i also know the fact that this is a very hard question to answer without being speculative, but an educated guess could help me a lot with making that decision. Specs: i5 4690 gtx 1060 8gb ram
  13. SLI Configuration Trick

    If anyone is interested in getting a pretty nice FPS boost, I tried something recently that worked pretty well. First, download and open Nvidia Inspector, and navigate to the entry for Daylight. This is currently one of the only games that support SLI in UE4. Open up a second instance of the application and navigate to the Squad entry. Copy over the SLI compatibility bits and all the SLI settings so that they match, apply the changes, and exit both instances of the application. I've tried this with Squad and Paragon and gotten literally double the framerate and am now able to turn all settings up to their max at 1440p resolution and remain above 60fps constantly. I run a 3770k with 2 GTX 970s so if your experience is not as smooth, I wish there was more I could do for you. I found this in a random thread somewhere the other day and figured it worked so I might as well share it to a larger audience since the devs have said that SLI is not on their list of priorities. Share your results please and maybe we can find solutions that work for all setups. Also, let me know if anyone needs any screenshots. I can take some when I get home to help anyone that isn't familiar with doing this.
  14. Hey there SQUAD devs and/or community management, i thought that i should give my feedback to the developers on this game, since i'm a backer and did put about 700hours into it, right after launch. I stopped playing Squad about 6 or more months ago because of the poor game performance and the lack of improvement in that area. Yesterday i came back to see how this game developed over the past months and if it's worth putting my everyday afternoon gaming time into it. Today i decided: It is not. Warning: This isn't supposed to be a hate thread and i also don't want to trigger the overly attached hardcode fan bunnies (is BLITZA still here?), but i feel like giving you - the devs - my opinion on the games current state. First off: i really like that vehicles are now in the game and i've also tested some of the new weapons. Both looked and worked better then expected (still having arma2 flashbacks, when i think about vehicles). Effects and sound design improved as well. However, all of this i couldn't really enjoy, because of the - still - poor performance of this game. Don't get me wrong, this is much better compared to the first few months after the game release, but it's still not even close to where a multiplayer FPS title should be - not even in alpha. I experienced FPS drops, i experienced low average FPS, i experienced mouse input lags and i experienced hit-reg desyncs. For me, as a longterm FPS fan, these are things which make a game fun and playable, or not fun and not playable to me. Squad went a long way already with its performance topic when i was still playing. But where are you guys now? It's over a year since release now and this game is still nothing to take really serious on the multiplayer FPS market. If you can't expect a first person shooter, where you rely on reflexes, aim, fast decision making (and alot more), to run at least on a stable frame rate of - let's say - 60 FPS, you did something wrong. If you can't expect the game to always register your fired bullets correctly and with (almost) no time lag, you did something wrong. If you can't expect the game to not let you randomly drop to 20 fps, even while you are in a building with almost no players on the server, you did something wrong. Squad is the most atmospheric shooter i've ever played. I've played tourney matches with my old team, i've played hundreds of public matches with new and veteran players and i was a active community member for a quite long time. I just really hope that you guys gonna start changing priorities in your product management team. Why would you add more performance hungry features, when even the base game is still not running how it is supposed to be? Yea, i know.. "That's how alphas work. First: add all features, then you improve performance". No! That's not how it works. You can't take this as an excuse for a whole year, while still working on new performance hungry features. Who will be left in the end? If this game will ever be "totally finished", with working FPS performance coming with the last update, i'm asking: who will be left? This early access phase IS your published content. It IS what the people are playing and talking about. It IS what players will stop recommend or give a bad rating. You guys already know that it's simply not possible with the current engine state, to give a stable performance, while still trying to reach your "100 vs 100 players on a map big like half the Iraq" vision. The questions are: will you guys still trying to push out content and hope that there will be some players left who don't care about a stable game performance in the end? Or will you guys change your vision and adjust your game goals to reach the standard of modern shooters game performance? Only you guys know, but i will not be around to find out. --- To whoever feels triggered right now (in the months i was active at the forums, there was alot of easily triggered people here): - Game was played on a i7 5820K, 32GB RAM, GeForce GTX 980Ti, Win10 - average FPS were 40. - Yes, i tried every in-game setting combination to try improve the performance - Yes, i could have turned my resolution down to 640x480 with everything on low, to get stable and high fps. I would have chosen this option if this game isn't about spotting players on long distances and long to med range fithing. - Yes, i know how to tweak stuff in the game config files to try to improve the performance (is it still possible to turn off shadows and foliage? ;-)) - Yes, i get it, "Squad isn't made for me" and "i am an ******". I "should really go play CoD or CS", since those are the only games where performance matters. - Yes, i know, you guys get "good FPS, game feels totally smooth to me" - even if most of you guys don't even know how to turn on a fps display. As an addition here: it still doesn't count when you get 60+ FPS ONCE at firing range, while looking at a wall. It only matters what your average FPS line is, while you are in a live game with the max possible - by the devs recommended - amount of players on a server. - Yes, i know. Netcode isn't something which matters in this game, since it's not about hitting moving targets, it's about just spraying bullets all around, so we can all feel like real life soldiers. --- Thanks for reading. Goodbye. Endgame
  15. Hello, I'm afraid it's another 'What performance can I expect?' question! (Haven't found the answer in any other threads so far) My rig is: CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 at 3.00GHz GPU: Nvidea GTX950 2GB RAM: 8GB Resolution: 1600 x 1200 Any idea on how/if this will run it or anyone with similar stats how the game is running on your system? Thanks!
  16. So i had an idea, not sure if its a good idea so i will ask here. I play Squad on a low spec machine. Some maps run good, some not so good. Would it be a good idea to have a server that rotates the maps that run the best and perhaps limit player limit to 50 or so. Although i don't seem to run into any trouble with 60+player servers and frame rate. The idea would be so that players like me can sit and play for a while without having to change server to get on a map that runs well. I know the game is still being optimised and I was surprised with the latest update, or how after simply formatting my computer, i went from 20fps to 30+ fps. It would be good for me, and others i assume to have a server set up for us low end pc gamers, Is this a stupid idea or not? Have a server designed for people on mid range/low end pc. If it helps anyone else who might be struggling, try formatting your computer, i was exited at how much difference it made. My pc must have been pretty messed up. Specs: CPU i7 4510u ( Haswell 2000 - 3100 MHz 22nm) Level 1 Cache 128 KB Level 2 Cache 512 KB Level 3 Cache 4096 KB 2 Cores 4 Threads GPU Nvidia 840m, 2gb DDr3, 28 nm mid-range DirectX 12 384 shader cores @1029MHZ 8Gb DDR3 System RAM Try setting in Nvidia Control Panel. Physx - use CPU, seemed to give me way better performance than using the Nvidia GPU for the Physx. Graphics Settings: Medium/High, 1280x768 gives me25- 32FPS on Kohat, 40- on Logar, 40+ on Sumari ,40- First Light. I am surprised that it runs even this well when 60 players are on. Good Job Offworld!
  17. Upcoming Features or Not?

    Hi guys, i'm new on Squad. I really like the game and i'm now eager to see what improvements will come. I already read some Montly Recaps and some topics to get some idea what will come next. But still i have some questions for quick catch up. So i listed my questions/suggestions to get some more information from you and developers. What's your performance goal? Since i see some features will not be implemented (ie. destructible buildings) because of performance issues, how much performance improvement should we expect when the game has finished? Is it possible to achieve %80-100 fps increase when the game has done? I think performance is the most important factor for playerbase and playerbase is important factor for Online Multiplayer games. Will you remove jumping? When the vaulting implemented will you guys remove jumping, because i think its not realistic at all. What about climb over fences and walls? Permanent Bullet Decals? I see bullet decals disappears after some shots, are those affects performance too much, is it possible to make them permanent? Destructible environment? I read you have no plan for destructible buildings yet. But how about other things like tress, fences, walls? Will there be explosion craters? Asymmetric warfare? Since factions are asymmetric?!?!, will there be more diversity between factions? Play style is almost same for all factions atm. I think there should be different tactics for different factions. Like will there be booby traps or tunnel network system for militias/insurgents since we know USA and Russia gets Helicopters for sure. Thats all for now, keep up the good work...
  18. I have an i5 750 on stock and have searched for new rig for gaming. As my cpu bottleneck my r9 270 2gb on cup bound games, I've been thinking to change to a new 1151 socket. This should serve me better than my old i5? Btw, good old mobos are really rare in my country (and expensive) so I cant overclock my old i5, sadly.
  19. Ghosting in v8

    I am getting a series of ghost images when panning view quickly. I have only noticed this recently is this a known bug? my system specs are: i5 3570k @ 4.5GHz GTX 980 16GB RAM SSD 1080p monitor
  20. AMD CPU performance is terrible

    I've noticed that a lot of people with intel processors have better FPS, can anyone tell me why AMD processors fail to handle squad well, and if there is a possible fix I can do or do soon?
  21. I couldn't find this specific issue while searching. Let me preface that my PC technically is below minspec, but runs the game fairly playably! Usually around 30-40 FPS, though I don't count. ... That is, until I zoom in via binoculars. The FPS drops down to 10-15. So I'm wondering if either 1) anything can be done in tweaking to decrease the FPS hit from using binoculars or if 2) other people get this issue, and so it's something that the devs could look into fixing. My specs are: Windows 7 1600x1200 all low settings AMD Fx-8310 Eight-core, 3.40 GHz 8gb ram GTX 465 1gb
  22. Original (Russian) version: Доброго времени суток, уважаемые разработчики! Я купил игру Squad в январе 2016. С тех пор многое изменилось, для некоторых в лучшую сторону, а для меня всё наоборот. В первых версиях игры у меня было в среднем 40 FPS в игре и это было для меня нормально. Но после релиза 7 версии игры, у меня стало 20-25 FPS в лесной местности и 35-40 в пустынной. Сейчас в 8 версии игры я имею в среднем такие же показатели FPS как раньше. P.S. 1. У 4 моих друзей в Steam тоже ничего не изменилось... 2. Настройки графики стоят на самых низких. 3. Панель управления NVIDIA настроен на максимальную производительность. Характеристики моего ноутбука фирмы Hewlett-Packard. Процессор: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40 GHz Видеокарта: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M Оперативная память (ОЗУ): 8 ГБ Пожалуйста, улучшите производительность игры. На других играх как Arma 3 и Battlefield 4 мой ноутбук неплохо справляется на средних настройках графики. Google Translate version: Hello, dear developers! I bought the game Squad in January 2016. Since then much has changed, some for the better, for me all the way around. In the first versions of the game, I had an average of 40 FPS in the game and it was ok for me. But after release 7 version I was 20-25 fps in the forest areas and 35-40 FPS in the desert. Now 8 version of the game, I have the same performance as before FPS on average. P.S. 1. In 4 of my friends on Steam too, nothing has changed... 2. Graphics settings are on the lowest. 3. NVIDIA Control Panel is set for maximum performance Features my laptop Hewlett-Packard company. CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40 GHz Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M RAM: 8 GB Please improve game performance. In other games like Battlefield 4 and Arma 3 my laptop copes at medium graphics settings. I hope you pay attention to my post, since I translated his 40 minutes. Thank you for attention!
  23. GTX 1070 Performance (halp)

    Gigabyte Wind-force GTX 1070 Intel core i7 4770k @3.9 GHz 16GB of Corsair RAM 1600 MHz Firecuda 2TB SSHD Currently getting 40-50 FPS on large maps on full load servers(1920x1080),fairly disappointing at times. Could my processor be the bottleneck or the ram? pls halp :C
  24. How Bad is the AMD "Problem"?

    Apologies if this is in the incorrect section. Specs: Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 ASUS STRIX RAM 16 GB (Corsair) Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 (build 10240), 64-bit I know that AMD performance is far worse, and that v8.0 should bring some great performance changes around November. I'm looking to buy the game, but I thought I would ask you that in the current state of the game, how bad actually is the FPS? Is it enough to make aiming a difficulty? Does it impact on how fun the game plays? Is it even that noticeable? I'm wondering this because I was watching some videos of guys with roughly the same specs as me playing around 4-5 months ago and I couldn't even tell the game was lagging. (See here for that video) Thanks in advance.
  25. I had noticed a sudden fps drop with the v7 patch and put it down to maybe the patch (since a lot of other people were saying their fps took a hit). But yesterday i asked my friends what fps they were getting (Lot of them didnt know that Statfps command showed FPS) they answered 50-90fps within the range of my 5 friends. I was getting 20 max and my system was better than some of theirs. - This was on the logar valley INS Night. I restarted PC, updated my GPU driver (co-incidence there wwas an update on that day) and lowered and upped my settings but nothing helped. Something that is at the bottom of almost every big change is to delete your configs. To be honest i ignored it thinking ah, that wont have any effect its just a 'just incase' type scenario. But it has massively increased my FPS. What you do: 1) Windows key + R 2) Type %Appdata% 3) Press back arrow and go to Local 4)Find Squad folder, open it and Delete the WindowsNoEditor Folder 5) Relaunch Game My Fps went from 15-20 to 60-70fps. Try it and let me know! (Note i havent done this since pre-testing so that may be a reason why) Cant promise anything - but trying to pass on what worked for me for others who overlooked it
