Just joined, so hello to everyone

Recommended Posts

I joined because I have developed an interest in this awesome game from watching videos on Youtube.

Squad seems to be a well designed game and it looks beautiful.

My first question is where should I purchase the game, here or Steam?  If here will I still need Steam?

Also since I use the right side of my keyboard will I be able to re-assign all the key presses?

Steam is required in order to play Squad.

not entirely sure.

 

worst case, it should be possible to change the keyboard layout in the input.ini with a text editor.

%localappdata%\Squad\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\input.ini

I've seen some people experiencing some keys don't work for some functions but as beginna suggested tweaking those ini file should at least be a help.

I was able to install Steam and the game and I tried someone's server. The game ran, at that time, very well, however I was the only one in the server.

Is there a server browser program other than the one in the game?

First off Welcome :) this is a great game  & community to be part of

 

The server list in the game shows all the 'live' servers, IMHO its easier to view if you remove the empty servers. You should have seen multiple servers (link to page on squad Wiki, this is an old version), are you sure you joined a game through the server browser and did not select 'shooting range' ?

In Shooting range there will only ever be you and its good to go on there to familiarise yourself with the roles / weapons, once you are ok with these try   either joining a Jensens range map in the server browser with a friend to practice shooting moving stuff or join a server but on joining a squad (do not create one) announce that you are new

I notice while in the shooting range that the weapons hit points are different when not ads and ads. Seems to me that the hit points should be the same.

 

I am trying to setup my mice. I have three and I am wondering which one to use, G502, Roccat Kone AIMO, or Steelseries Rival 500.

They each have their pros and cons. The Steelseries has more buttons but is butt heavy. Would be nice if the Roccat had two more buttons.

 

Anyone using any of these mice? If so how did you set them up?

 

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the community! It looks like folks here have you covered, but don't be afraid to ask if you need something else. =)

Welcome Squadie!

 

I also noticed that the ADS and non-ADS hit points are different. In my opinion one or both are wrong.
