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.

Running Squad at 3840x1600 ultrawide causes strange GPU usage anomalies on certain maps. The best example is Kohat Toi - FPS drops happen regardless of player count and the game's debug overlay suggests high frametime caused by GPU - BUT - MSI Afterburner tells me GPU isn't even hitting it's max usage... https://imgur.com/a/Unjp7xd https://imgur.com/a/Rg7yPZY Please see attached screenshots. You can see the GPU usage isn't at max, but the framerate is lower than refresh rate of monitor (60hz), which would make sense if the CPU or network was struggling etc etc, but the debug overlay clearly says the problem is coming from the GPU. I am really confused about this, and I've never seen this before in a game. I am fully aware that I'm running a crazy-high resolution and would expect to see FPS drops because of this, but the data I'm sharing here actually suggests that my GPU has plenty of headroom left, and yet something is stopping it from using that left-over power. And it doesn't seem to be the CPU! specs: 6700K - 4.5ghz MSI 1080ti - not OC'd Samsung PRO EVO SSD ASUS Hero VIII H100 watercooler. Acer 38" XR382CQK Windows 8.1 64-bit
Greetings and Welcome, I've enjoyed playing Squad so much that I decided to make a YouTube channel and record, edit, and upload gameplay videos. All of my videos are recorded in Ultrawide resolution 21:9 I'm always looking for way to improve both the videos and my own play, so comments and constructive criticism are welcome. However I've only been doing this for about a month, so please be gentle... A few of my more recent videos are below: Thanks for watching!
I bit the bullet and bought a used Acer Predator X34A Ultrawide 1440p monitor. I was fed up with jagged edges and the jerky movements whenever my frame rate dropped below 60 (I was using a 1080p 60Hz display before). My only concerns were that my PC might struggle with Squad at 1440p as I was seeing 40-80fps at 1080p on average. (i74790k @ 4.7Ghz & 980ti FTW) and that going from a 43" display down to a 34" might be underwhelming. The size isn't really an issue because all I did was move the new smaller display 10" closer to where I sit, problem solved. I'll probably still keep my 43" display setup somehow for when playing racing sims as I sit way back when using the wheel and pedals. And so far 1440p with no in game AA has made the shimmering jagged edges almost non existent, they are still there a little but nowhere near as obnoxious and annoying as they were before and G-Sync is just amazing, I just jumped into a full server and surrounded my self with smoke and made my frame rate drop to 40 and it was exactly buttery smooth. With my old 60Hz display literally any frame rate under 60 would be jerky. I'm sure with the current version of Squad my FPS will dip below 40 at some rare points in the game, surrounded by smoke while being suppressed etc so I'll see if G-Sync helps at that low a level of FPS but those moments in game are quite rare so we'll see. For now though I'm extremely happy as the game optimisation can only get better so hopefully from now on I can just turn off my FPS counter and enjoy the game! Oh, and Ultrawide, OMG, absolutely perfect for Squad. EDIT/ added photos:
