      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. FYI, as it costed me "some days" to solve it... After downloading the last update i got a steam error message: with the following link to the steam knowledgebase: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2274-IFLV-5334 I really tried everything in section "Basic steam troubleshooting", but nothing worked. After some days searching the internet and two game deinstall/install/move folder cycles i ... gave up... You know, "7 days to die" (experimental) got live, so i was "busy" anyway ;-) ... But while playing i recognized that i was used to start "7 days..." via a desktop link, but Squad via the Steam-client. So i tried to execute the "squad_launcher.exe" in "steamapps\common\Squad" and i got an error message "file not found". But the file was there with a size of 1089KB and the steam "verify files" process said again "all OK". This time i searched the internet for a problem with "existing executable not found" and stumbled over an EA forum post for "Origin": https://answers.ea.com/t5/EA-General-Questions/Windows-10-cannot-find-Origin/m-p/4887580#M175606 And really in "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options" there were two "entries" for "SquadGame.exe" and "squad_launcher.exe". After deletion of these "keys" Squad was running again... BTW: I have no glue where these registry came from... a matrix problem i guess ;-)
  2. This is likely a software issue, as I was running the V13 play-test with no issues until the actual patch launch on the regular game. Game simply crashes on launch once the launcher is complete and moves to the SquadGame.exe. I can send a report, have already, and attempting to restart the application from that screen merely repeats the crash. I have attempted the following fixes. 1. Launch with both launcher and SquadGame.exe in admin mode. 2. Verify local file cache through stream (reports complete), and checked the DX install. 3. Whitewash full uninstall/ reinstall. 4. Attempted to locate user Cache. It appears to be missing? In fact, my AppData is empty excepted for the windows folder. Specs: OS: Microsoft Win 10 Pro Processor: Intel i7-6800K CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3401 Mhz, 6 Core RAM: 16GB Drives (2): SSD 512GB (Squad installed on this one, ran play test as well), 2 TB Hard Drive. Graphics Card: EV3A Geforce GTX 1080. (Drivers fully updated) Monitor: Dell, U2913WM, 2560x1080x60 Hz This is a homemade rig, with no operating warranties.

  7. [Solved] Black Screen

    Hello, I purchased the game yesterday. When I'm lunching the game, I see a picture for a small brief of time and then it turnes to black. I tried to load the game on windowed, boarderless and full screen mode without any success. I'm playing the game through cloud gaming and Parsec app.
  8. I have never in multiple years had problems with this game until V10. I can't go more than 10-30 minutes without a crash to desktop, no error is given. I haven't played a full match in months. log file is here: https://pastebin.com/gHdd1ySJ I don't know exactly what I am looking for in there, any help is greatly appreciated.

  10. Well the title almost describes it, i play the game, for like 10 minutes, and then at random intervals my game chooses to freeze on itself and drop the fps and loop the sound, i was told that it was because of AMD hardware that i got, but alas, intel ppl get it too, and i have done everything i could to try and fix it, clearing the cache, manually and from the game, uninstalling, updating my drivers, my windows, my SOUL, and still no improvement, it crashes, as i said, at the random intervals, please help me, i can't even finish one game............

  12. All servers I can play in are locked to west coast, and thus the ping is quite terrible. I was wondering if I could switch it to the proper east coast, so I can get servers with not really bad ping. I can't seem to find anything in the options of the game, and the internet has given me no answers. Any assistance would be much appreciated. Thanks, Zevros

Update from nvidia: As a part of troubleshooting, I would suggest performing clean driver installation using Display driver un-installer utility. Here's the direct link for the Display driver uninstaller: http://www.guru3d.com/files-get/display-driver-uninstaller-download,20.html After the download is completed, it would prompt you to extract the file.

  14. So I've been having a issue recently where mid match my game crashes due to it trying to allocate a texutre and it doesnt have enough memory. I asked some people and they listed the following possible fixes: -Turn preload texture off (Mine was already off) -Verify game cache (did that nothing missing) -Not enough memory. (I have 12 gigs and a 1060. This only became a problem in the past few days. I got back into Squad roughly 5 days ago and already put 30 some hours into it. These problems came up in the past two hours. ) I also reinstalled the game once and that did not fix the issue. I also have nothing else in my launch options as that tends to make some textures flicker for some reason. However that is a unrelated issue I am pretty sure. I was told that I wasn't the only person having this issue, so I wanted to ask if anyone was experiencing this and if anyone had any suggestions for a fix. Thanks for taking a look, any and all help is apperciated. Panda Repost from Steam discussion.

  17. [Solved] Game will not start

    simply put my game wont start. this is the 4th day running the first day i spent trying to fix it myself, second day spent couple hours talking to rocode on discord who was very willing to help me but he ended up having to leave and i did too, yesterday looked at this forum for any other poor souls who had same issue (turns out they did but the fixes provided didn't work.). so as you can see i'm a tiny bit salty now and i'm going to list fixes that i have tried. and some things i found out. Fixes tried (may miss a few) Restarting PC Restarting Steam Validating files reinstalling game deleting appdatalocal squad data then validating Launch parameters (-noeac -windowed) vcredist thing uninstalling, repairing and reinstalling changing hard drive Repairing/uninstalling/reinstalling EAC uninstalling recent windows updates and disabling windows auto updater ending a lot of tasks (not all) before starting game Changing installed hard drive Editing antivirus (Microsoft security essentials) okay so what i found The issue started occurring after a recent windows update possibly coincidence. i also found that after restarting pc and immediately starting steam and squad the game seemed to work (if the game is closed again or left too long the game wont start) so this leads me to believe that its a program that is conflicting with squad, however the game DOES NOT crash after startup Basic specs OS: Windows 7 GPU: GTX1060 6GB CPU: AMD A8-6600K 3.9GHz RAM: 16GB DDR3 System Memory 2 x 1TB drive Please for the love of god somebody help me
