      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. I've had this issue on and off, mainly before and after multiple updates to Squad but I've not managed to put my finger down on it due to the fact I regularly take long breaks from playing. The issue being - When I navigate to the server browser to search for a game (usually I stick to the same few servers) I get little to no results. More often than not it takes around 5 seconds for me to retrieve the first server, which is usually German or French, following that I'll get maybe two more, but that's it - Even if I search for a particular server I do not get a result. I realise this is quite a common problem popping up for multiple players of Squad and that there's a sticky thread on the website with steps to follow but I've taken all of them and nothing has changed. Steps taken: Verified no dumb filters are on Cleared in game cache Verified game files through Steam Uninstalled Squad Flushed my DNS & reset Netsock Restarted my router Switched between 2G and 5G channels on my router Adjusted the ping limiter in Steam Also tried setting both Squad and Squad launcher to run as Admin White-listed the whole Squad folder with my Anti-Virus and Firewall. My system is fully up to date on the latest version of Windows. To clarify, I was literally playing a few nights ago prior to the CAF update, I just finished the update, jumped on and I have this problem again so everything seems to point to a change there, this has happened once before with a similar update maybe 2-3 months ago and was only resolved when an update followed.
  2. Hi! I have been having this issue since I have purchased Squad, I have tried every single trick under the sun to try to fix it, I was so hopeful that Alpha 16 might fix this huge issue that's plaguing so many people want to be part of the experience, but unfortunately either the dev team isn't aware of this issue or have chosen to put it on the back burner. So to anyone that isn't aware, some Squad users have been having issues with the Squad server browser showing only a select few and sometimes no servers at all for you to join, in my case the only servers that show up for me are Chinese 400 ping and Russian 300 ping servers, this is the majority and if im really lucky and made it onto Santa's good list I'll sometimes get desirable servers that aren't deserted and have a healthy player amount with a ping of 150 or less. I'm currently living in Saudi Arabia so im no stranger to gaming with low ping, I can get by with it and you'd be surprised how high your ping can get before a game becomes unplayable (for squad its about 170), so when the discord server for Squad told me that the possible answer is that squad was filtering out high ping servers and only showing me the ones within my range was completely wrong, if anything the server browser should've been showing me only the European servers who on average have a ping of ~120 and below for me instead of the Chinese and Russian servers. Im posting this in hopes that someone from the Squad dev team or maybe even someone that has direct contact to the dev team can help me out, I understand that sometimes some bugs can't be fixed unless they're reproducible, so if at any point someone from the dev team happens to see this and would like for me to become a test subject I will gladly help out in any way I can. Please if you've got the time put any possible fixes you can think of here, and ill try them all one more time as a last-ditch effort, and, if you've had this same issue, please reach out to me as im pretty desperate. Thank you for reading this far, have a nice day
  3. These will be awesome features, so players can join a server in which a match already runs for a long time and the next map will run soon, and every player can play their favorite map! With a timer where it shows how many minutes ago the "nextmap" was changed/set.
  4. I see no servers

    As the title says, I don't see any servers.. I have tried every solution i could find around and here and with Google, nothing seems to have cured my issue, I simply write here because i'm all out of ideas.. It's a desperate call for help since every other move has failed.

  6. Factions in server browser

    It would be helpful to see which factions are in the layer of a server you are looking at. I know that these things can be learned over time but there are becoming too many layers for myself to keep track. I'm sure there are some newer players as well that would enjoy seeing which factions the current layer has. Secondly, any plans for an Ocelot? Just watched a video on that thing... brits need more armor anyway

    Hi thanks for reading! For the entire duration in which I have owned squad (currently clocked 272 hours in game) I have had issues connecting to servers. The 'SERVER BROWSER' is practically useless as I am lucky to see even servers with zero players in it. The 'CUSTOM SERVERS' option is slightly more useful and I can typically find a populated server after about 5 to 10 minutes which isn't too big of a deal. However, recently I have sat down refreshing 'CUSTOM SERVERS' for upwards of 45 minutes with no success. I have redownloaded the game on three different occasions. I have recent my modem twice, my router countless times, and removed and reinstalled anti-cheat many times as well. I have ALL firewalls turned off and I still can not find a server. HELP. S.O.S. Merrik

  9. I've seen some similar threads to my issue, but I haven't seen this particular issue or a resolution to it. I'm able to get a server list most of the time, but I often have to reboot because I'm not getting any servers in my server list. After rebooting, I'm able to see servers show up in my list. I don't have any filters set in the game. I don't have any anti-virus, don't have a firewall program, windows firewall is disabled, I don't have a router, I'm running straight through to the modem. I have an Asus motherboard not a MSI. I've seen in similar threads people are suggesting opening up certain ports. I'm not dealing with a router issue though because I'm not using one. The modem should be open on all ports, and as I've said, it works fine after a reboot. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. With the latest patch, Squad 9.10 keeps crashing immediately after that an online (multiplayer) game has loaded: "An Unreal process has crashed: UE4-Squad" I've already sent a crash report. Tried this on about 3 servers, about 4 times - it is always crashing immediately after that the multiplayer game has loaded. I played Squad before the 9.10 patch and it worked OK. I tried the following: Cleared game cache. Verified (integrity of) game files via Steam "GeForce Experience" told me that I have the latest drivers. Windows 10 is up to date. Tried to lower the graphic settings to something like "LOW" and resolution 1600x900 (approx. / don't remember exactly) - didn't help. Noticed that the Firing Range (which is a local "game") works perfectly fine. Details about my rig: Windows 10 8GB RAM i5-4430 GTX 1060 6GB
  11. I can't play (normally) for 2 reasons: 1. The only playable server for me is QFF (Queens Fighting Force) and since about 3 days ago, the game's built-in server browser stopped displaying it among the other servers. (I tried to clear cache, it didn't help.) 2. I tried to connect for 1.5 hours via Steam's server browser but it failed too: 2.a) The data of players count is just wrong, see (from the left is info from a website ; from the right is info from Steam): (I refreshed the website constantly until data was checked "< 1 minute ago" and then immediately refreshed Steams' server info). 2.b) When it finally managed to connect, then the Squad game launched and then it connected to the server, but then told me something like "Could not connect , Server if full". 2.c) When again it finally managed to connect - then for some reason I got to Jensen's Range (which worked OK, probably because it was online and not local). Please: Fix the problem that is presented in the above two clauses. Add to the built-in server browser the option to connect directly to a server using an IP address. Make sure that Steam's server browser is working properly.
  12. Hello, I have been playing the game for a month but today I cannot see any servers... That's very strange. How come I dont see any servers please? Is this an issue happening to everyone today or only me? Any way to fix this issue? Thanks a lot

  14. [Solved] Servers are blanked out

    So i just updated the game and now most of the servers that i usually played on are now blank and i cannot join them. The very few servers that i can play on only have 0-3 players in them. Just wondering how and why this happend and what i can do to fix it. Very frustrating considering i was gonna get a game in before i left my house but i guess thats fine.
  15. No servers

    Hello I can't see any servers in game, but if I look just through steam i can see alot, but nothing happens when i try to join them, other than it opens the game. I have tried different things from other forums to make it work, but nothing seems to have worked. Any suggestions?
  16. So just some background info before I paste anything. I wanted to join a custom server. It is actually CCFN server. But I hardly think its on them. But anyways, so while the server browser is searching all of the servers available, you see the list updating, scrambling around and adding lots of servers within the server browser. Before I can even get to the server I want to join, I see a black screen.. my screen turns off on sleep and then when it brightens up again, the game is minimized with a fatal error showing this message. Why there are so many squad.exe's I have no clue, this is a direct Copy and paste of the message I have received. In addition, this is a recurring fatal error that is basically making the game ineffective and not allowing to play on any servers. I wil cooperate if there is any other information needed. Error Message is: Fatal error: [File:d:\g\pipelines\owi-squad-release-a-8\U\Engine\Source\Runtime\RenderCore\Private\RenderingThread.cpp] [Line: 721] Rendering thread exception: Fatal error: [File:d:\g\pipelines\owi-squad-release-a-8\U\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 176] Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0007 - 'RESET') KERNELBASE.dll squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe squad.exe KERNEL32.DLL ntdll.dll ntdll.dll
  17. Tried all posted fixes, both from Zendesk and here on the forums. Even if I try to connect from steam server browser, it wont join - just opens the game and nothing happens. I can join firing range, nothing else. MSI motherboard, Killer Lan suite is removed, and driver without software installed. Contacted Psyrus, as it seems to be a problem with my Router.
  18. Had the Issue that i only saw 3-5 servers max. in the ingame server browser. There are some solutions out there, that did not work for me https://offworldindustries.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/234684847-No-servers-in-server-browser (though deleting the personal app data increased my fps) A friend of mine encountered the same problem once he was connected to a new router, so the problem might be there for some people. what brought me a solution was to forward some ports in my router, as well as in windows. Not sure which one did the trick but i opened the following ones: (first 4 rec. by Steam) https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=8571-GLVN-8711&l=german TCP: 27015-27030 UDP: 27000-27015 UDP:27015-27030 UDP 27031 - 27036 UDP: 4380 UDP: 7777 UDP: 7787 Change it in your Router, as well as in WIndows (under firewall, advanced settings, incoming rules). Steam recommends some more. Now i see all the servers. if sometimes the problem occures again, a router restart solves it.
  19. Server browser - April 2017

    Gday. Just reinstalled Squad for this weekend free weekend The IN GAME server browser seems to be missing:- Auto ping limit of 200 on displayed servers Missing FRIENDS tab and missing FAV TAB Also when you choose to SORT BY PING I get graphic glitch's , why are we even displaying servers with 400 ping in the list first ? Should servers with LESS then 100 ping by the default listed thing ?
  20. Hello i bought squad i started the game but couldn't find any servers i tried turning off my firewall and reinstalled the game my steam max pings/minute is set on 500 i really need help
  21. Difficulty Joining Server

    Hi! It's always difficult to join a server even if the ping is low. Also, when I switch from server browser to custom server browser and back to server browser again, It won't load the list of servers even if I refresh the list over and over. Please help. Thank you!
  22. Hello to the developers.Sketched here is a little fact that is missing in the current server browser. Should we expect something similar in the next update? Do you plan to do the queue on the server? In Russia we have about three servers and they are almost always full. The players are lacking this feature. Thanks in advance. P.S A yellow star means that the server added to favorites.
  23. Troubles with the Server

    Hi guys! I'm having troubles for a while with a physical machine I own. It's installed in it a virtual machine that I used as a server for Squad (I have the licence for this and it should be part of the category server browsers). I can't understand why the machine is not up. I tested all the configurations decribed in the posts of the Squad's forum. But this didn't help. I attach below the log files of the machine. Thanks in advance.
  24. As it stands, current server browser is cumbersome to most casual players who may not own reserved slots on servers. The process of having to see 64/72 players in a server, attempting to connect, waiting to load, then getting booted back to home menu only to refresh servers again adds a level of frustration/tedium that could be avoided. I would suggest changing the client server browser so that it will show the number of reserved slots, and also have an option to prevent connection attempts for those who know they do not have reserved slots on any server. This would greatly reduce the amount of tries and time spent trying to connect to a well populated server with some ostensibly free slots. Some context/about me: I would consider myself a casual player with some experience in military simulation games like Arma 3. At times I find I launch Squad and try for maybe 10 to 15 minutes to connect to well populated servers while catching up with email or other simple tasks. Some days I do not find a suitable server in that amount of time and end up doing other things (be it gaming or just non-computer related stuff). I do like the squad community, though, compared to a lot of other games. So when I don't play Squad I usually don't play anything else for that computer session.
  25. Played 90+ hours in Steam and many more as a Kickstarter with no problems, then just before V7 came out my server browser stopped loading. Seriously frustrating. Anyone else? What to do?!?!?! Cheers.
