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. §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.

Hi, Since last night my Squad launcher fails to start the game up. Instead I get an UE4 crash report saying "an Unreal process has failed: UE4-SquadGame". The day before I did install a new SSD on my PC, but I played Squad after the installation and it worked fine for 3-4 hrs, when I came back a couple hours later, the game wouldnt launch anymore. The screenshots are the only things I get on my screen, after the minimalized loading screen, I get the crash report. I have reinstalled it a couple of times now, never worked. Thx in advance Walt
http://forums.joinsquad.com/forum/241-report-server-admin-abuse/ Can we get feedback on our reports so we know you care? is these only for the looks? just a placebo to make us think you care? We respect your wishes to not post these in the forum so we use the report form. is this because you don't want the critique to be discussed because you don't plan on doing anything about it? You can at least make one comment letting us know if you reviewed it, if its insufficient evidence or if the report is false or if its valid and that you will proceed with actions. anything.
Hello! have a problem : the game weighs 138 mb ( obviously must weigh more than 5 gb) and , at startup , says that is not found executable. Downloads same set of files of archive . Help me please! if you need additional details , please let me know , I will try to provide them.
First off, that was awesome. The sounds, the art, the mechanics.. everything is definitely progressing and it's nice to be able to see it as a player by experiencing it first hand. I'm going to write a quick bit of feedback and any aspects I believe are "issues". I'll try to leave out the repetitive and obvious stuff that everyone is well aware of and I'm not going to dive into telling you what your priorities should be! Let me start off by saying I experienced absolutely no technical issues the whole weekend. I got my email, sent the extra key to a friend, set up my account / profile, downloaded the game and waited for the accounts to go live / be activated. The game didn't crash once at any point and my performance was pretty decent. I had everything maxed but then I put the shadows down to MED to go up to a more constant frame rate. I also used VSYNC... it works pretty well for me. I rebound my voice comm keybindings and adjusted my mouse sensitivity without a problem too. The only problem I had was server side which was mentioned by several people on the forums during the weekend. Joined an empty server and was sent back to the main menu.. I'm not going to speculate on what I think it was but you guys had it on lock and fixed it in the end. That aside, there were a couple of "picky" things that are stuck in my head.. Suicide - I came across a few guys in a squad that were abusing the ability to commit suicide using console commands. Basically, they would send the SL behind flags to place an RP down and once they secured the flag they would instantly commit suicide and respawn on the RP. They also figured out that the respawn timer is shorter on the hideout / radio ("FOB") so they went with extra guys and set up behind the flags again which meant the enemy had no chance to counter the flag capture since the respawns were so short. This meant they could fully skip fighting the enemy and instantly start capturing the next flag. Building FOBs and RPs behind the front line is fine but abusing the console command to commit suicide in order to essentially avoid having to push the enemy back directly seems a little bit extreme to me and I'm well aware that some kits have grenades but that's the same concept. It was pretty effective too since killing yourself is much faster than having to run against a force of resistance.... anyway, the direct solution I can think of is just to make the respawn timer longer if the player commits suicide, maybe 15-30 seconds more than the regular timer. Having the option to commit suicide at this stage of development is a pretty vital thing so I won't suggest the removal of it but it shouldn't be something that can be abused to affect gameplay. Being an SL - I had a few games as a Squad Leader. It's fun leading and the communication aspect is shaping up to be great already. One bit of feedback I have for that is either for the game to "prioritize" incoming comms or for the players to be able to set this up on their own. Having people talk on Local, Squad and Command at the same time can be an extremely painful experience especially when the rounds are flying and explosions are going off. At the time we had 3 Squad Leaders and we were communicating with each other. Now, this was awesome as we were able to co-ordinate our efforts on different tasks but once Local and Squad channels started to become more active in the game I found it impossible to distinguish anything said. So what I suggest as a fix would be automatic channel prioritization. This would basically mean that if someone is talking on Local and then someone starts talking in Squad it would lower the volume of Local while Squad net is being transmitted. This would also be the same with Command being prioritized over Squad. Another fix would be for players to be able to set prioritization in their settings.. if someone doesn't necessarily want Squad net to turn down the volume of Local they could swap them or even go as far to the point where you can just set individual channel volume levels (similar to master volume and then a breakdown of effects, UI etc).I believe that's it from me. There's a lot of other things I've noticed but they have been addressed by others already which is awesome to see. Edit: Specs if anyone requires them.

Issue: Discovered that if you have 'Display Fusion' (software used with more than one monitor) open when the game is launched you will get a black screen and game will not load. Temp Fix: Close 'Display Fusion' before launching and game will load correctly. [squad Client Download - 1566]
