    What do you do when you are incredibly bored?

    I still like licking Windows 😆 But I do like to chase pesky cats now and again 🐱 And sometimes when my human is not about I drink out the toilet bowl 🐶

    Black Ops 4.....Is it time to

    Play? I am a COD enthusiast but the last two incarnations have dented my enthusiasm for the game. I hated all the boost jumping wall running in IW, and got WW2 quite late in the day, I have been playing Ghosts and MW remastered recently since I got a monitor, which has enabled me to see! Lol So, is BO4 worth getting? It seems to be plummeting in price, (not always a good sign) but looking at all the negativity about it in the forums should I just let it pass me by? Answers on a postcard please,

    Black Ops 4.....Is it time to

    I have had a look at some YT vids but it's not grabbing me to try it, so might just stick with what I have already.

    Monitor vs 4K tv

    Ok, I have decided to upgrade to a monitor, or 4ktv as the old eyes can't hack it anymore! I have been doing a bit of reading up on both options, and quite frankly find all the "blurb" confusing. I think I would prefer the TV option, as they come with in built speakers and I can also watch the tv when not gaming. However I don't want a mahoosive tv, and I can afford around up to £300. Anyone have any suggestions, or have got a tv that does what it says on the tin, please do not bombard me with jargon, as most of it will go in one ear and out the other. I do understand about refresh rate, imput lag, and the basic stuff! TIA Macca

    New Game recommendation

    I have always been a COD player first and foremost. Given the recent offerings WW2 which I am now getting bored with along with BO3. I have not purchased BO4 due to all the negative feedback I am reading about it. so, excluding Fortnite, Titanfall and BF which I have played a didn't like has anyone any recommendations for other FPS that might ignite my game playing passion again! I await your responses!

    DumaOS on the Netduma R1 is now in Open Beta!

    Thanks for that IIIRL quite a read, understood about 75% of it but that's down to me! Played WW2 tonight on the same server vultr.com and it was like night and day. Great hit markers, shots all on point, getting 6.5.12. 10 KDR's. Next minute completely the opposite applies. No hit markers sniper rifle rounds passing through people. So as you say it's so frustrating, but I still come back for more.! And they say a definition of lunacy is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different outcome. Lol

    DumaOS on the Netduma R1 is now in Open Beta!

    I have found the DumaOS to be a positive experience since upgrading. I like the fairly simplistic layout and the ability to move things around. It gives you a lot of information about your network etcif that's your bag. Or like me you just switch on and play and hope everything's doing what it should be! 0n a different topic I play WW2 The game keeps putting me in the dedicated server "vultr.com" no matter where I put my home location. I have tried to deny it, to no avail. The in game ping is a outstanding (for me) 20ms but it still feels that I am lagging behind other players. I am experienced enough to know when it's me, I.e. When my aim is off etc etc. So is there anyway I can force myself to get connected to another server? To see if it is any different
  13. Is it ready yet? Have we got it yet? Is it ready yet? Why not? Is it ready yet? Is it done yet? I'm bored. Is it ready yet? When can we download it? Is it ready yet. I'm bored. Can I play with the OS now? What do you mean IT'S NOT READY YET! I want it now! Is it ready yet I'm bored. Pretty please I'll be good I promise, is it ready yet. sorry but bored this morning so thought I would do a quick wind up!
  14. This is what I don't like about this part of the game the complete lack of action for so long. Just running about looking for loot! It a Fortnite clone!

    BO4 was it any Good!

    Thanks for your thoughts, guys I am not sure about the Blackout feature, I have played Fortnite and didn't really get into it! I came late to WW2 and honestly quite like it, and I still play BO3 so may continue on those until I see what all the feedback re BO4 says.

    BO4 was it any Good!

    BO4 beta has been out on both consoles over the last few weekends The question is "Was it any good/better/worse than other CODs" From what I have seen on YT it looks like the same old tired looking excuse for a Fps ! So my fellow Duma Army players, what was your experience?

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    Should have been locked straight after they announced it was delayed, as there has been absolutely nothing to report!

    Forum Is its time up?

    That's great to hear Jack, the thorn in the side has been the complete lack of communication and the moderators have been left to face the crap.There used to be suggestions for competitions, possible meet ups, secret santas etc which were good fun. I know you have to have participants for these "extras" if you like and its down to forum members to join in, but I believe that the severe delay on the DumaOS has had a very negative effect on the forum members, myself included. Jack you alluded to the the issue of the update being released, I think EVERYONE is waiting for some sort of news, and I agree the forum probably be a much healthier place......... But waiting's a bitch!

    Forum Is its time up?

    I used to enjoy this forum, and I have learned quite a bit about gaming through these hallowed pages. But I have noticed that the forum is dying a slow death. The shout box used to be full of people virtually every night. There were quite a few moderators on this forum, but I think they are slowly leaving the ship, and through no fault of their own. When I saw people getting made moderators I was a teeny weeny bit jealous, but no more. I think it is a thankless task with what appears to be no support from the Netduma team. Ok, they do help to solve people's problems (Fraser/Jack) But on the big issue I.e. the Duma OS the moderators have been left high and dry to take the crap from the disgruntled customer ecetera ecetera. So whether you like, dislike, totally apathetic try and see their side of the update/no update debacle,

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    We now have 37 pages of nothing! I'll just reiterate "NOTHING TO SEE HERE"

    Realism for COD

    I know COD is only a game. But the earlier versions had a reasonably realistic battlefield feel to them. The enemies uniforms were different but similar for that particular side/team On WW2 we went back to boots on the ground, yeh! But the circus has arrived, I think that if any of the WW2 veterans saw the uniforms they would probably die laughing! And the weapons, when will the game developers realise that you cannot ADS quicker with a machine gun, that with a sub machine gun/pistol tec Shotguns and pistols do not have Infinate range and lethality As an ex squaddie, I quite like the shoot em ups! But they are starting to get very silly, with all the camos, uniforms, face pint etc can't we just go back to basics lol Rant over!!!

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    I don't think there is anything to achieve posting about the OS delay I think every argument possible has been put forward and STILL nothing has come from the Duma team. The silence is deafening, the time of the delay announcement was inexcusable, but no amount of posting is going to change the fact that is has not been released, is not likely to be released on this version of the Duma. I far one, and I speak for myself, am not , and will not lose any sleep over it. For you guys that bought the Duma on the promise of an upgrade etc I can understand your annoyance, anger and frustration over the situation. But it has not made ANY difference at All and we have 33 pages of nothing! Once the announcement was made the Duma team wound their necks in and battened down the hatches and have not yet come out of the bunkers. Except to put their nice new OS on the XR500..........

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    I love conspiracy theories! I agree the silence is deafening, Conspiracy theory 1 maybe the Netgear hierarchy told Netduma "You can't give the OS for free when our customers have to pay for it" Conspiracy theory 2 "Netgear "If you delay the roll out of the OS, the Duma customers will get pissed of with waiting and buy the XR 500 and we will give you a cut of the sales". Conspiracy theory 3. Duma "We can't the OS to work on the Duma, backwards compatibility is not going to work. Blame the lawyers! I am thinking that, quote from Hamlet "There's something wrong in the state of Denmark" lots of conspiracies in Hamlet!
