      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. Is it worth sacrificing the quality of the player base (my only experience been Australian and West Coast US servers) for the sake of an extra 1000 or so of what I would assume are likely temporary concurrent players? https://steamcharts.com/app/393380#3m If a player considering how long this game has been out before has not purchased this game until now its likely they generally are not familiar or prior fans of the more sim/tactical shooter. The quality of experience on all public servers has dropped due to new players unfamiliar all flooding the servers within a similar time frame. If you're new to a title like this, what a mess of a first experience you'll have. ~16000 players towards the end of July back down to approx ~6500. All this does is turn players away from the game and I've noticed a lot of what are/would have been regular players (especially due to the smaller size of the AUS/NZ player base you saw the same names often) have seem to taken a break from the game due to the reduction in quality of any given game. I think a model of slower longer duration growth, maybe free weekends or so after every significant update that involves new assets or maps is simply smarter and retains a better average experience level within the player base (which is what new players need to understand this game).
  2. Foliage blurry and flickering

    Hey guys. From the first time I installed the game, I'm having issues with the graphics. First of all, I have 2x GTX 770 4GB but for Squad I'm using Single GPU Profile (SLI seems to be causing problems). However, regardless of what graphic settings I use, the foliage (trees, flowers etc) seems very "textury" and ugly. Even if I set foliage to Epic along with 1.5 supersampling, the improvement is so minor that I can't even notice any difference at all. Is that normal? I have attached 2 in-game screenshots along with my settings. Thanks in advance.
  3. Audio: HRTF/OpenAL

    Seriously. Play the original Far Cry on any EAX supporting card. It beats the shit out of basic stereo/5.1/7.1 Most games will give you a basic "left/right/front/back" but there's no "above/below" or effects based on what the sound passes through/around to get to you. It's stunning that HRTF isn't more popular since it gives people so much precision for their sound. Right now it sounds amazing, but the precision isn't there. In PR hearing a chopper flying overhead or the various effects for firearms distances and the like was pretty badass. I seriously hope the Devs implement OpenAL or HRTF or something similar so headphone users are 100% aware of their surroundings. Aside from that I'd be nice to be able to spot enemies past 50m where the world just turns into a pixelated mess I've never seen in any other game.
  4. quality Dutch

    Hallo, Ik wil graag een team oprichten met Nederlandse spelers die het leuk vinden om samen voor de fun een beetje te gamen op Squad. Bewust kies ik er niet voor om in clan verband te spelen omdat ik daar helaas geen tijd voor heb i.v.m werk, het is dus echt puur voor de fun en je niet telkens Engels hoeft te praten wat in de meeste servers wel gewoon verplicht is. Wat me wel leuk lijkt is om eventueel ooit een teamspeak servertje op te zetten en iets met een site, maar dat zijn dingen die zijn leuk als je met meerdere mensen bent en is natuurlijk zeker geen MOET prive gaat bij iedereen natuurlijk altijd voor..... Wie er geintresseerd is moet natuurlijk wel over een headset beschikken en over goede team play. (Heb zelf alleen nog geen headset morgen pas weer is stuk) steam account: JeffersonNL
  5. TIPS: Recording and Rendering.

    Hello, Does anyone have tips for making vids and rendering them? Many of the Squad vids suffer from blurriness and are pretty awful to look at. Including my own. I started to remove Interlacing, motion blur and Frame Blending. Makes it a lot better. Any more tips? Recording in 80Bitrate and render the same. Use Sony Vegas Pro 12. Glhf. PS: Just began with this video stuff. Yes, I'm a noob at it.
  6. Hey everyone. So I don't post here too often, but this is a topic I wanted to hear people's honest thoughts and opinions on. Before you read any further, this is not a hate or rant thread. I am trying to gather honest opinions on what the regulars in Squad think. In my opinion, v7 has made the game less fun, and by a lot. Between the crashing, performance decrease, and gameplay changes, and even with the addition of vehicles, I feel like the game is much less playable and enjoyable. Before anyone says it's Alpha and that the bugs will be fixed, I know. We all know. My real complaint here is with how v7 was rolled out in such a broken state, along with trying to understand how vehicles were meant to enhance the gameplay. That is why they were added I would imagine, to make the game less fun and more tactical. Since the addition of vehicles, it seems Squads no longer stay together. Squad leaders waste a ton of time trying to claim vehicles either at base or remotely from somewhere else. Vehicles seem to have little to no effect even when manned by good veteran crews. In fact, none of the maps even seem to be designed for vehicles, even Yehorivka. Vehicles feel like more of a burden not on just the team, but the gameplay overall. Dare I say, the game is funner with infantry only maps and more tactical than it is with vehicles. Again, NONE of this is because of "noobs" or "new players." Since v7, my time ingame has been decreased DRAMATICALLY. Once you get past the constant crashing, unplayable performance (I get 25-30 FPS with a GTX 1070), and the other quality of life issues such as lack of server browser etc. the game feels so fragmented and disorienting. Squads have difficulty staying together. Vehicles are a burden on the gameplay. Vehicles seem to have no real effect on the outcome of the match, and most rounds end with a 200-400 ticket difference. Games aren't being "turned around" with more tickets. The discrepancy is higher than it was ever before. Most rounds end with a team getting only 60-100 kills, despite the fact that there are 600 tickets. There's a lot to be said, but I don't want to drag this post on. So I've created a poll, and I want to hear your honest thoughts on v7. Questions: 1) Was the patch rolled out responsibly by OWI with the amount of crashes and performance decrease? 2) Were vehicles rushed to please the userbase, rather than making sure they had a real tactical effect on gameplay? 3) How have the new FOB system and claim system affected the TACTICAL feel of the game?
  7. Here are some of my settings to make Squad pop a little. If you're struggling with fps, dont use this. This is for the people who want Higher Quality. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Config Open Default Engine Copy and paste this under [System Settings] r.LightFunctionQuality=3 (Not sure this is working yet, maybe use 2 i'll look into it)r.ShadowQuality=5r.Shadow.CSM.MaxCascades=4r.Shadow.MaxResolution= 4096 (higher is possible)r.Shadow.RadiusThreshold=0.01r.Shadow.DistanceScale=1r.Shadow.CSM.TransitionScale=2r.DistanceFieldShadowing=1r.DistanceFieldAO=1r.AllowLandscapeShadows=1r.SSR.Quality=3r.SSR.MaxRoughness=1r.MaxAnisotropy=16r.Streaming.Boost=4r.DepthOfFieldQuality=2 r.RenderTargetPoolMin=400 Then go to [/Script/Engine.RendererSettings] and find r.TextureStreaming and change it to False So change it to r.TextureStreaming=False Go try it out, and give me feedback weather it made some differences. Note that im still experimenting with these settings Add me on steam: Gamer tag is: Viper or my username : DRK_Viper Cheers, Viper out
  8. Olá! Meu nome é Daniel e eu faço parte da (ainda) pequena Comunidade Brasileira de Squad. A comunidade brasileira, embora seja pequena, é uma comunidade muito unida, disposta a crescer e ajudar no desenvolvimento do game; seja reportando bugs, cheats ou apresentando possíveis melhorias. Neste caso, a finalidade do meu tópico é apresentar uma possível e necessária melhoria em relação à qualidade gráfica em relação ao desempenho. Desde quando comecei a jogar Squad "pra valer", sofro com um problema relacionado a "escala de resolução"; por padrão o jogo configura a escala de resolução em um valor aproximado à 120%. Aqui no meu Hardware (que não é fraco), essa é a configuração de resolução que o jogo estabelece para rodar com uma taxa de FPS aceitável, no entanto esse valor bem como qualquer outro valor que esteja abaixo dos 200% deixa a imagem "borrada", dificultando a visualização dos inimigos. Isso não seria um problema se eu ajustasse a escala de resolução para 200%, cujo valor deixa a imagem bem nítida melhorando consideravelmente a detecção dos inimigos; no entanto essa configuração de resolução deixa meu jogo com uma escala muito baixa de FPS. Isso afeta muito meu desempenho pessoal nas partidas, na maioria das vezes eu fico com a pontuação negativa e consequentemente perco rapidamente a vontade de jogar, pois eu tenho que decidir entre FPS alto ou nitidez alta e não há (por enquanto) um meio termo entre essas duas opções! Gostaria que vocês, desenvolvedores, trabalhassem nesse aspecto do jogo, otimizando a qualidade sem sacrificar tanto o desempenho! Por enquanto é isso, espero que vocês possam considerar minha sugestão. Até mais! — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — — Hello! My name is Daniel and I'm part of the (still) small Brazilian Community Squad. The Brazilian community, although small, is a close-knit community, willing to grow and help in the development of the game; is reporting bugs, cheats or presenting possible improvements. In this case, the purpose of my topic is to present a possible and necessary improvement on the graphics quality in relation to performance. Since when I started playing Squad "for real", I suffer with a problem related to "resolution level"; by default the game sets the resolution scale in an approximate value of 120%. Here in my hardware (which is not weak), this is the resolution set by the game in order to run it with a decent FPS rate, however this value and any other value that is below 200% makes the image "blurry ", making viewing difficult enemies. This would not be a problem if I adjust the resolution scaling to 200%, the value of which leaves very clear image greatly improving the detection of enemies; however this resolution setting makes my game with a very low scale of FPS. This greatly affects my personal performance in matches, most of the time I get a negative score and thus quickly lose the will to play, because I have to decide between high FPS or high sharpness, I would like you, developers, worked on that aspect of the game, optimizing the quality without sacrificing much performance! For now it is, I hope you can consider my suggestion. See you! (I apologize if the translation was not perfect. I do not quite understand the English language and use an online tool to perform translations!)
  9. Does Squad run really bad with AMD

  10. Hi, I wonder if anyone has a solution please: Before the latest update (4.0), the trees and bushes in the game had individual leaves, but since the update the leaves are replaced with green "blobs" like a game from the 1990's. Which graphic setting would affect this? I've tried them all to no avail. Thanks.
