      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. Missing HUD elements

    Description: Sometimes I cannot see my mags for any weapon nor vehicles. Steps to reproduce: Unknown Occurrence: Random, sometimes i see them and sometimes I don't. I think it may dispensary in between map changes. Since V11 Specs: OS: Win 10 64bit GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce GTX 1080 Ti RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB (2x8GB) CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K Actions taken to fix: 1. updated to the latest graphics drivers 2. cleared game cache 3. tried changing resolution Observe the lower right corner
  2. So first of all I would like to say hi to all Squad (and Post Scriptum) players, I'm fairly new to the forum but I was playing Squad for over 2 years now, a question I wanted to ask everyone here is, is everyone getting high latency in Squad? or is it just me, I play mostly on EU servers ranging from 70-80 ping, but when I actually enter the game it goes way up to 130-200 ping followed with a lot of lag. Am I the only one suffering from this? I play fine on all of my other games but Squad is really unbearable sometimes.
  3. Helping the community

    Hello everyone, Quite a few know me, where as others are getting to know me. You tend to find me helping new players find suitable servers to meet players and gain support when they are new to the game. Someone today was asking about Hungarian people, to this I didnt have anyone to recommend or tag. So I am asking everyone to let me know if you have a server, or which server you tend to play on, so I can further support our community to grow and show them we are a nice place to play games and interact with. I tend to recommend mainly within the squad official channel, looking for a group
  4. Post Scriptum key not working

    Been a Kickstarter backer since Squad inception and it appears that the email address doesn't work for the key.
  5. Is anyone else unable to play due to a bad memory leak? I launch the game, and immediately my RAM and GPU both start steadily climbing in usage before I even get to the main screen. Once I first get on the main screen of the game, my GPU is sitting pegged at 99% usage, and my RAM is sitting at 50%-60% Usage, and continues to climb until it hits about 80%. Keep in mind this is just sitting at the main menu screen. Once I actually join a game the RAM goes all the way to 99% usage and the game is unplayable as it hitches and stutters violently. I have completely uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. I've also reinstalled my graphics and chipset drivers, and ensured Windows is up to date. I also verified the integrity of the game cache in steam after reinstalling the game, and cleared the game cache once I launched the game for the first time for good measure. I'm running an Intel Core i7 8700K ( at stock speeds ), 16 GB of 3000 MHz ( Stock Speed ) DDR4, and a EVGA GTX 980 Superclocked ( Planning on upgrading my GPU once the next gen comes out ). I have been playing other games and using other programs without any similar issues whatsoever. As an example of a demanding title, I can play Kingdom Come: Deliverance without any similar performance issues at all so I don't think that it's an issue with my hardware? I still have some other troubleshooting steps that I would like to try, but it would help to know if anyone else is having a similar issue or could recommend any additional ideas. Here's a screenshot of my system RAM and GPU usage from squad just sitting on the main screen: Link Thanks guys!
  6. Before we start, please know that this is a re-post and yet edited for accuracy ...

Try to tweak your resolution * Are you using Nvidia and see this random green mist on the ground like this? - I do believe this was introduced rather recently. According to the OP, clearing app data folder was a solution. Also rolling back the Nvidia version was a solution as well. *No confirm solution out yet* *Edit:Exiting out and joining the server has been a workaround* *Is your mic/headset not working? Are you using Turtle Beach/Xbox or Bluetooth? Care to look at instruction of work-around in courtesy of @SuicidalChair? ------------------------------------------ Depending on the question Is your GPU AMD or Nvidia ? Did you initiate any necessary driver updates? Provide the log file? Are you using any VPN or virtual networking software on your PC? Have you tried to disable the function and run the game? Did you tweak page file size? For reason why I am writing this since lately, I have seen so many people asking for help without specifying the basics.... No I am not pissed or anything, it's just as people who want to provide help, it's essential for us to reduce any unnecessary delays between people and get to the bottom of the problem FAST. Thank you! Would appreciate if someone could pin this or re-word the above as it needs to be. P.S All of the info is 100% came from within the forum... Thank you to all smart Squaddies! EDIT : For non-English speakers, Please feel free to copy the O.P and translate in your own language. It might be better off replying translated copy to the O.P. In that way, you can just copy and paste the link instead of having additional 7,424 posts of non-English language. Also Please refrain from yourself asking help in the reply. Please make a separate post. I most likely will not help you if you reply in this post.

  10. [Solved] Minipap propotion Bug?

    Hi, So after me and my fiend had played for a while, the mini-map on my friends screen got really big and out of proportion: This is his full screen. Everything was normal, just the map was oversized. Restarting the game would make the map normal again, but after some time, it went back to this. We checked the local data for errors through steam, but it said everything was fine. Kind regards GLG
  11. I've installed it using openGL, and have tried dx9 and dx10+. Been installing in the squad binaries folder as shown in tutprial v8ds/old threads. No dice. Installation will say success, but it just wont work. I've tried reinstalling the game as well as verifying the game files. Made sure game was in borderless, steam overlay disabled for squad, ran a sfc /scannow check, etc. Nothings helped. Usually what happens is I run the launcher and either... (A) get a reference memory error, memory could not be written. (B) squad just doesn't launch, ill click it, itll load and say "running" for a second in steam then just not launch. Then I've tried launching through the squad .exe in the game folders, and it will launch but then ill get an EAC error tht says to make sure ive used the correct launcher and am unable to join any online games unless I delete the reshade folders. Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks guys.
  12. Endof Match Crash?

    So here's the thing. I've got over 200 hours in Squad and I love it. But after the last update I've had two issues. Seeing fewer servers than normal, which I am working on reading other posts, so I wont worry about that. But what I seeing a lot, in fact every match, is that when a match is over and Squad attempts to load the next Match my game locks up. I've cleared catch, deleted local files, but noting works. Doing "~reconnect" also fails to work. Any tips, ideas, fixes?
  13. Rendering glitch

    The poppy field isn't rendering correctly. It maybe because of my ini files as I have tweaked them to increase performance, but I deleted them and reinstalled squad and deleted game cache.
  14. Foliage Problem

    -removed link- I've had this problem for awhile now, but it seems it just go worse today when I started playing. I tried clearing cache and deleting the ini files and reinstalling the game, but that doesn't seem to work also. Any fix?
  15. Squad leader Edition Issue

    I'm late to the party, I know. I just now made my forum account. I bought the $70 Squad Leader Edition of the game and supported it all the way from alpha testing. I resolved part of my problem: steam inventory items. Now the second: will I ever get my name in the credits? Just wondering.
  16. Hey, Yesterday I launched Squad, joined a server, and then when I spawned in the terrain was glitched out. It looked like the far away version of the terrain but at close range. Also the collision was messed up and I would glitch through the floor. I haven't updated any drivers recently. I tried the clear cache option in setting, I verified integrity of the game files in Steam and I reinstalled. Nothing worked. Image of the problem All help is appreciated! NickHaldon

  19. VOIP Sound Bug?

    Reposting this from /r/joinsquad: I 've been recently having this bug where I cannot hear my team's voices, neither squad, command, or local chat works. I can hear the radio beeps and all that, but no voices. Before you ask, yes, the audio settings for VOIP are on. Any help?

System: Win 7 64x GPU: Nvidia Gtx 1060 CPU:Amd fx 8350 8x4.0 Ghz 16G ram I tried to reinstall the C++ 2012 and 2015 and i reinstalled the game noting worked for me accually you guys can help me If u have and idea to solve this probleme just write me or add me in Steam http://steamcommunity.com/id/evoyo/ Best regards evo.
  21. Having played the game for a while i have frequently noticed a problem with firing positions, I feel like a great addition to squad would be the addition of extra firing positions. Some extra firing positions that could be implemented are... high prone (to see over grass or slight hills), a sitting position, and or a low kneeling position. Other stances could also be added into the game. With that smoothing out the transitions slightly would be nice as well. I would also see it useful to add resting guns on low walls and other supports for reduced weapon sway. Firing positions and resting weapons on different surfaces for support could go hand in hand. Resting weapons could also be used for bipods. Not only would this add more accuracy but could help contribute to stealth tactics as seen when people try to go from prone to kneeling to see over low grass, and getting picked off because they sit up too high.
  22. D3d device lost?

    I start playing Squad today (11/10/16) and played it for 1:30 to 2:00. I got off to take a break and came back to start stream when i get this error. I have been trying to fix it for the last 2HR and i'm just done. Also i bought it today to so i'm a bit pissed. -Kjaysaint Gaming
  23. Reward Support Players

    Hi there, i was thinking, since V7 is out now and there are completely new elements to the game (like logistic supply drops and more) that the Scoreboard could show not just Kills, Deaths and obviously the Score itself but f.e. how many supply run drops some Player made, or how many revives a Medic made, and so on... you get the point. imo it would be a good competitive indicator for supports, logistics, medics what so ever and you can see at the end of the round how valueable this guy was in his function for the team. what do you think?
  24. Hey fellas, I recently bought Squad, yesterday. I got into the game no problem before I hit settings. Since I run a laptop, I changed my graphics to low. I don't know why I did it, but I lowered the resolution my one setting. Since I did that, my screen went black. I thought it was just resetting. Nope, it kept flickering on and off. I cannot click on settings again and change it back. I don't know if its apart of the problem, the game said that my graphics driver had known issues. I checked my system devices, it says its the latest version. I have 8. something and its saying it recommends 15.30.1025 or something like that. I have no idea how to fix it, I even went onto AMD website and tried to update the driver and it didn't work. I uninstalled the game and waited another 3 hours for the dang thing to download. I don't know why, but its like im not meant to play this game man. Any help is appreciated. Squad people, help me out lol.
