Squad - Public Testing now available on Steam

Recommended Posts

Hey Squaddies!

 

As some of you may have noticed, we've implemented an alternative testing installation in Steam for Squad, known as Squad - Public testing. There are three important things to know:

 

  1. This is a separate, additional installation of Squad for testing purpose. It will require a full download if you choose to join the test.
  2. Alpha 12 will be available to everyone via this method! Community servers! Slightly smaller queues! More tanks than you can shake a HAT at!
  3. It's still a playtest -- so expect bugs, crashes, and changes. Send us your feedback!

 

You've all been patiently awaiting Alpha 12 and we're happy to bring it to you with this new, improved testing method. Let us know what you think!

 

To download, simply navigate to your Steam Library, select the Squad - Public Testing game entry, and Play from there. This is what it looks like in my library:

Are there now actual servers within the Server Browser, or still just Custom Servers? Hard to play when the queues are like +24 at peak times xD

The same method, go to your library in Steam > right click on SQUAD > Properties > Beta and insert the code.

 

Now, a second game will show on your library that doesn't change the original files.

Amazing. Now we can play both versions without uninstalling and installing over and over again!

Community-hosted servers should be available.

Simply fire up Steam, navigate to Library, and find Squad - Public Testing. It should appear as its own entry now. After that, download (WARNING: IT IS A COMPLETELY SEPARATE SQUAD INSTALLATION) away and get your game on. If it doesn't start downloading, try restarting Steam.

Strange, for me "Squad - Public Testing" was not in my library until I inserted the code.

Well, I could be wrong.

Honestly why even remove it, was it hurting people, was it in the way for coding the new tanks, Have players complained that it was there?

  • Skirmish layers have received an update, and so did Chora layers.
  • Russian desert ammo bag texture got fixed.
  • Fixed a crash on map change.
  • Fixed fully load textures being on by default.

Trying to use the Squad - Public Test Dedicated Server on Linux (AppID 774961) but it's showing up in the Custom Server list as v11 and the last update to the public branch was 6 months ago. There's a community-host branch updated 2 hours ago but it has a password.
