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.

Before update 9, Squad ran smoothly. Now, when I join a game and press ENTER, this happens. And I cannot move the map/screen around at all. I've tried everything; changing the resolution, changing from borderless to window, verify integrity of game files etc. I can zoom in on the map and spawn somewhere, but the moment I die, I cannot GIVE UP. My screen won't move over, so I cannot click GIVE UP. I either have to wait for a medic, or I have to wait until my guy dies. Either way, it's frustrating. Can someone help please? Thanks.
When I launch squad from steam the initial small loading screen with the logo passes fairly quickly. From there I get the little cut scene contained within the squad logo. After this is when I tend to sit with a black screen for 2 or more minutes before the usual controls display graphic shows up, at which point I wait another minute or so before being brought to the main menu. I get the same problem when I go to load into a server, a minute or two of black screen followed by a minute or so of the controls graphic before finally getting into a match. I have no issues running the game smooth as butter once I'm actually in (almost 100hrs of gameplay show no issues with the in game performance). I am running the game from a HDD not an SSD as I don't have the available funds to upgrade that, not that it appears it would make a difference. Two of my roommates have the game, one runs it off an SSD and one also runs off an HDD and both have drastically faster loading times than me. Any idea whats up? Some specs of my rig that may apply?: 1TB HDD (defragmented routinely) Intel i5 8GB ram GTX960 Thanks a lot for any suggestions guys!
Hello, Is it possible to implement a color saturation setting because I find the atmosphere of the game too funny, the colors are too flashy and it is a shame for a war athmosphere ... the color level design Maps is not terrible. Thank EX : http://www.hostingpics.net/viewer.php?id=8394636452157vieilleville.jpg]

Endgame posted a topic in Software SupportHey guys, since update 4.0 and 4.1 i have some kind of screen flickering mostly in the middle of the screen. Problem first occurred after i patched to 4.0 and still remains on 4.1. SPECS: Acer S27HL Monitor Windows Resolution: 1980x1080 i5-3470 CPU 8GB RAM GeForce GTX980 Windows 10 Pro In-Game Graphic settings: I've set everything to "Low", "Off" or "None". (I also turned everything on and to Epic as a test. No change.) Resolution Scale 120% (I also tested it with 200%, 100% and so on. No change.) FOV set to 90 Resolution 1980x1080 Squad Config changes: I've set max fps to '60' in the GameEngine.ini. No other changes. NVIDIA Control Panel: I had some settings changed, but deleted the whole Squad-profile as a test. Had no effect on the flickering. NVIDIA GeForce Experience: Version 184.108.40.206 GTX 980: Driver version 361.75 The flickering gets stronger the faster i move my mouse or starting to sprint. It's no complete black-screen-flickering (a Windows 10 bug). It's a vertical flickering mostly in the middle of the screen near the weapon. I have no FPS drops while this occurrs. It doesn't appear randomly, it's just always visible if you're standing in the right position and moving your screen. As you can image it is really annoying and won't let you focus on playing the game anymore. I hope somebody can help me with this problem. Thank you guys in advance! Best regards, Endgame
A Reddit user (macgivor) pointed this out to me the other day. The Squad Quick Start Guide may have one word on there that continues to enforce the myth that the enemy can hear the local VOIP. I suggest better/clearer wording for when you guys touch up the loading screen. :)
Hello! Since the closed beta for squad leaders, and now in the current patch for Squad on Steam, whenever I enter a server my screen is a bright green color. I am not sure how to get rid of it, or why it the issue persists. When I mess around with the gamma bar in settings, the screen's green brightness lessens just a little bit when I turn gamma to maximum, but it still remains. The pictures I am linking are with the gamma on maximum--if it weren't on maximum, it is impossible to see anything. Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 3 Does anyone happen to know the reason for this issue or what I can do to fix it? Thank you.
This is my first topic post here, guys! I've used the search function and didn't find anything directly related to what I'm about the suggest. They're pretty minor things anyways. Injured Debuffs - I think it'd be nice to have some hefty injury effects on player movement, aiming and visibility. Where the player was hit and how badly should be the main focus, methinks. For example, if you are hit in the leg, your character might move with a limp, and therefore aiming while moving will be harder, as well as the loss of the ability to sprint fast. Getting hit in the arms would affect aiming (even when standing still, or prone without a bipod) and getting hit in the head or having a grenade explode near you would affect visibility (flashing red vignette, blurriness, other psychedelic effects). Basic torso injuries should cause shaking and lesser versions of the debuffs mentioned above. I think that this will be an addition to the realism that Squad is aiming for. As for death screens - I think it'd be interesting to shy away from the classic "time until REALLY dead" countdown style, and do something a bit more interesting and intense. I was thinking along the lines of a heartbeat which starts to slow down over time and varies depending on how badly you are injured. It could even speed up when a defibrillator shocks you (if those are added at all, I wouldn't be rattled if they weren't). Another small thing is that I'd like sound to be muffled when dead or unconscious, instead of pristine or gone entirely. Same goes for grenade hits and basic injuries. The latter paragraph was pretty much entirely assuming that a revive style system is going to be added, or at least unconsciousness. If that isn't going to be added, the only part to be acknowledged is the part about audio muffling. Hell, these things might already be basic planned for features (or already in the game for all I know) but I thought it was worth suggesting. I'm all for the little details in these kinds of games.
If I understood correctly there will be a revive system just like in BF2: PR and that means there will be a wounded state were we'll need to wait for a medic to come and revive us, in PR this means waiting up to 4m:59s (after that we're "dead-dead") and even after those 5m we might wait a few more until we get a spawn opportunity. My suggestion would be instead of having a black screen or a wounded one (bloody screen but w/o moving the camera we can still see) we would automatically jump to the eyes of a random squad member and see him playing. Some may this would be a bit unfair because in the end you could have 9 (8 wounded/dead + player) pair of eyes watching the same image but the comms delay would mitigate this con and by allowing us watching others player you: Would solve the "Dead people talking" issue - in BF2: PR its common to use mumble (Voiver over IP) to alert friendlies about the enemy position, not only that but if said enemy starts to reload or patching the wounded/dead player can broadcast that information which is annoying in some cases. If you're not in your "body" that means the enemy player is not in an unfair situation.Would solve the boring part - Like previously stated you can spend >5m watching the same wounded/dead screen which might lead to people alt-tabbing until we hear that we'll get a revive, with this system we can still be entertain even if not doing anything.Would create a better teaching technique - If you're dead and you're a new player you would be able to see how better players are still alive, when do they use cover and/or move, or how do they supress, ectAnd that's it.
Squad 'Battle Recorder' Suggestion is for a feature that is the equivalent of Battlefield 2's Battle Recorder. Might be hard to produce one and cause many bugs but there's some ammount of uses: Catching Cheaters, Exploiters and so onDev usage as trailerPlayer footage for game promotionBug catchingPossibly other usesIf it was to be done then try to include a rewind feature or timeline (looks at Battle Recorder with angry face). Obviously not an essential to the game but it does have it's uses in the long term yet it wouldn't be unexpected for SQUAD to not have the feature as the competition doesn't tend to have the feature as far as I'm aware.
