      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. Can someone help me out with the Sensitivity Multipliers? For example: what's the difference between "Global Sensitivity" and "Soldier No Zoom"? Does using the "Use Zoom Sensitivity Scaling" box ticked cancels the "Global Sensitivity"? Sorry, i'm kinda confused...

    Just wanted to give a huge thanks for FINALLY implementing custom ADS sensitivity. The game is much more playable for me, and possibly thousands others now
  3. So ok here it goes. I will post this here and talk about you all about turret rotation speed on the vehicles. As some of us have seen this some players when in the vehicles (gunner) goes and in the option settings and puts the mouse sensitivity to the max and gets faster gun rotation.That's not normal. Every type of turret has its own speed of rotation and its own type of power to rotates. The old type tanks had hydraulic systems for turret rotation that needed the engine to be working so the pump could pump the pressure in the system>and yes it rotated faster if you rep the engine up.The newer ones use mostly electric power to rotate it that dose not need the engine to be on. I am making this topic so when the tanks get introduced in game some type of a fix for this can be implemented or something. I do not see this as a huge problem its basically just a suggestion.
  4. Please, please, PLEASE make mouse sensitivity for aiming down sights and mouse sensitivity for just looking around separate. Currently I can either set it higher to be able to turn better but aim for shit at range, or set it lower to be able to aim better but have to swipe my mouse all the way across my desk to turn around.
  5. From the threads I've been reading people are really touchy about weapon sway, zoomed sensitivity, and headbob. To begin this "rant" I should note that I do understand that everything is kinda hacked together at the moment and is all subject to change. I believe that we need zoomed/scoped sensitivity. Realism be damned, Playing PC games gets you used to a specific sensitivity. As of now the sensitivity "changes" when zooming in making it very difficult to get used to aiming which isn't raising the skill cap, it only makes it more random and frustrating. The general method of scoped scaling is 1.0 That means if your scope zooms in 20% then your sensitivity slows down 20%. As of right now it's "broken" by not having this mechanic you zoom in 20% and your sensitivity doesn't change which means it would actually be 20% higher. Your mouse movement feels like its snapping around a grid jumping a few pixels in each direction when you try to barely move it. The current view bobbing for zooming in is very strange and inconsistent. When you are scoped your gun sways around randomly in every direction unpredictably. You might be breathing heavily running a short sprint but your gun isn't fixed to your head. Your head moves around while your scope is steady. I'm not saying weapon sway is a bad thing but it adds this clunky randomness which I think defeats the purpose. I think it needs a smaller radius it can sway within and not drift so violently from side to side, rather it should either be moving fast consistently when you've got low stamina or slow consistently when you're high on stamina. I'm sorry to jump all over but I needed to bring this up. If anyone is confused by my crazed ramblings I can record a few current examples and Create a proper scoping mechanic and what I'd believe to be an ideal amount of weapon sway that feels realistic while not removing too much control from the player. I'll do it in UE3 if I can.
  6. So, there is Sensitivity variables in: %AppData%\Local\Squad\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini Line 9: AimSensitivity=0.067500 SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Squad\Engine\Config\BaseInput.ini Line 21: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseX",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) Line 22: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseY",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Squad\Squad\Config\DefaultInput.ini Line 9: -AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseX",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) Line 10: -AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseY",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.f,Exponent=1.f,Sensitivity=0.07f)) Line 15: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseX",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.000000,Sensitivity=0.070000,Exponent=1.000000,bInvert=False)) Line 16: +AxisConfig=(AxisKeyName="MouseY",AxisProperties=(DeadZone=0.000000,Sensitivity=0.070000,Exponent=1.000000,bInvert=False)) Line 138: AimSensitivity=4.700000 Also, there is bEnableFOVScaling=False and bEnableMouseSmoothing=False I kinda understand how FOV scaling works. It multiply mouse sensivity by FOV Scale(0.011110). But it would be nice to see actual formulas. BTW, I get different accelleration(depending on how fast or slow I move my mouse) with mouse smoothing enabled, so I disabled it. It would be nice if devs explained how whole mouse sensitivity thing works with formulas, please. But that's not why I've created this thread. I've created this thread because there is at least 5 places where you can set your mouse sensitivity. I figured that 'end' mouse sensitivity is a result of +AxisConfig Sensitivity multiplied by AimSensitivity variable in GameUserSettings.ini. So, let's say I've got 0.067500 in GameUserSettings.ini and Sensitivity=0.07f in +AxisConfig. My 'end' mouse sensitivity is: 0.067500*0.07=0.004725. At some point of time I changed +AxisConfig Sensitivity to 0.01 and AimSensitivity to 0.4725, my in-game sens didn't change but it became kinda smoother and more responsive, especially at lower FPS. Now I ended up with +AxisConfig Sensitivity=0.000001 and AimSensitivity=4725.000(GameUserSettings.ini) and I still get the exact same 'real life' sensitivity but it feels much smoother, more responsive and it is actually easier to aim, track enemies and spray than with default values of 0.067500*0.07... I understand that you used 0.07 value in +AxisConfig Sensitivity because of people with low DPI(400-800) and because it's alpha and you didn't have time to convert 4725.000 number to a proper 0.4725 sensitivity etc. But can you please explain the whole sensitivity thing, please? There's actually other option. You can set +AxisConfig Sensitivity=1.000000 and AimSensitivity=0.004725 and get the exact same end(0.004725) and in-game sensitivity again... But which is better: 0.067500*0.07, 0.000001*4725.000 or 1.000000*0.004725? What would you recommend and why? And what about Exponent argument for +AxisConfig? What about raw Input and direct Input? At the moment I just play with AimSensitivity=4725.000 in GameUserSettings.ini and +AxisConfig Sensitivity=0.000001... Devs, pls explain.
  7. Aiming sensitivity

    Hello devs, could you add a sensitivity slider for when you are aiming? It helps a lot, specially whit targets that are really far away, it helps whit the accuracy Rising Storm Slider EDIT: for those of you who didnt get it, im talking about a sensitivity slider separate from the looking sensitivity. It should affect your sensitivity when you are aiming, and not just looking around.
  8. I was wondering if there could be a SetSensitivity command in the console like a lot of unreal engine 3 games. I run my mouse at a fairly high DPI(helps me navigate windows easier while also not messing with the windows settings) and it would help to just plug in more precise values in-game instead of having to edit config files. I imagine it would be fairly simple to implement although it might not be useful to very many people... I'm loving the game so , you guys are my favorite and most receptive devs I have seen! Thanks for being awesome. P.S. Server queue would be awesome, whenever you guys are able get around to it :)
  9. Controller

    I'd like to be able to remap the controller or at least turn it off in the game settings and use Xpadder. The controls should be more like BF4 imho, no offense.I'd appreciate a sensitivity option, for the controller, the mouse sensitivity doesn't effect it.
  10. Not sure if this has been documented. Each time I launch the game and join a server, my mouse sensitivity is really high. I have to open Settings and click Apply, without making any changes, to set my mouse sensitivity back to what it is already set to in the Settings. Not a major bug, just a pain.
  11. Searched "sensitivity" and nothing came up about this. So some games have a sensitivity option for regular hip fire, as well as aiming down sight, and even scoped sensitivity. I understand it's pre-alpha, but I was wondering will that be implemented in? I tried snooping through the config files but didn't find anything that useful. I would like to have the same sensitivity all around, or at least have the option for it, as others may like a lower sensitivity aiming down site. But I think this should be able to be customized for the player because some people like it one way, some like it another. Or, is there a multiplier used for the main sensitivity that multiples it into the scoped sensitivity? Because if that's there, allow us to change the multiplier if we don't want any change in sensitivity between ADS, and hip fire, or if you want .5 of your main sensitivity, so it'd half it when you ADS, and so on. So main question, will this be implemented eventually? Oh, this is mainly a suggestion to add into the game, but also a question because it's alpha and it may already be planned. Thanks!
