    Welcome, Joseph. Do you play Xbox or PS4 or just PC?

    I am DONE!

    Just hope and pray that the next patch for BO4 undoes whatever they did that created all this skippy/stutter bollocks. Preferably before I put my Xbox through my monitor. It's got to be something wrong with the game or the servers (or both), it's so frequent that it can't just be down to enemies with bad connections, it's pretty much every game since the big patch.

    How can you explain this?

    At this point in time BO4 is completely broken (or the servers are), no amount of medicine is going to make a dead man any healthier. But it still has two main benefits for me, if I couldn't choose to play on my local dedi and if I can't stop my housemates from lagging me out then it's so much worse.

    How can you explain this?

    Yeah, winning a game definitely makes it easier to forget/ignore/forgive the lag or feeling like you're seconds behind. Some games we played tonight we completely smashed the enemy team, with 1200+ score-per-minute each, we totally destroyed them, at the time those games seem smoother because we're doing great and dropping bombs and helicopters but if you record longish clips and properly look at the movement, you can still see the problems, shit's just janky. Some games seem smoother than others and some enemies definitely seem to stutter / skip / teleport more than others too. I think a lot of it is down to how the enemies play, I really notice the problems when enemies rush me, or when multiple enemies (or even friendlies) are just nearby which seems to cause the frame rate to drop erratically. If the team you're playing sit back and don't rush then you can't really notice that anything strange is going on. And if they're shit then you don't really notice because you'll blow their heads off before they're even pointing in the direction. But I'm certain that there's a fundamental issue with the game or the servers at the moment, I don't believe that the amount of lag I'm seeing (and all of my friends see) can just be down to the other players in the lobby having bad connections - it's just too many players and too often. On top of that it was pretty much fine right up until the moment Treyarch dropped that patch on us, up until then it was pretty damned smooth (aside from frame rate issues on Gridlock and Contraband), but since that patch it's been dodgy in every game, every day. All we can really do at the moment is try to force the server we want, so we don't suffer even more from latency, and pray that Treyarch sort this shit out before we lose our minds.

    How can you explain this?

    @Macabi83 it's possible that you have something on your XR500 (or somewhere else in your network) set up sub-optimally as well but even if you have it set up perfectly and your line is almost perfect too, this will still happen until Treyarch sort out whatever they broke with that patch... https://xboxdvr.com/gamer/colonic-booivi/video/63152807

    How can you explain this?

    I connected my Xbox direct to the router and played like that for 2 hours or so... I can definitely see the micro-stutter you're talking about, the micro-stutters must not have registered with me before because of all of the other performance problems. But as I'm seeing it now, while playing modem direct to Xbox, that completely rules out the Netduma as a contributory factor. I should add that, without filtering, it was even more horrible because I got lobbies on servers in different countries. Not only did I have to deal with BO4's bargain-basement dog shit servers, I had to play in mostly international lobbies where enemies have 3rd world internet. I'm certain you're mistaken. I've tested it myself for 2+ hours, TDM, Domination, HC Kill Confirmed, I jumped lobbies after every game to make sure that I got a decent test across different servers. It's obvious that the BO4 update and/or it's servers absolutely stink. The game's performance is awful since the big patch. If you don't believe me then just leave your standard router in place for a few days, don't hang back from the enemies (because the performance drops aren't nearly as noticeable if you keep your distance), get up close and personal and it won't be long before you see that there's a major game/server problem.

    How can you explain this?

    I will, I'll go straight from the modem to the Xbox but that already sounds like something different to what I'm talking about. Can you post up a link to a video from your DVR, showing the lag you're experiencing? Also, check if you're getting dedicated servers (within the game). On Xbox, if you go to the network tab (in-game) in options, the server number is in the top right corner. If it has an 'e' at the end then it's a dedi, if it doesn't then it's P2P. I assume it's the same if you're on PS4. It's possible that you're accidentally forcing P2P with your XR500 but when you unplug it you're getting dedis.

    How can you explain this?

    I'll test it tonight, I'm happy to call bs in advance though. I play Xbox with several people that don't own an Netduma (R1, XR500, whichever) and they all complain about the performance of the game / servers and they all say it nosedived immediately when the last patch released. Unless we're not talking about the same server problems. I'm talking about skipping / stuttering / teleporting enemies, when I know that I'm on a 7ms dedicated server with a nearly flawless line.

    How can you explain this?

    If I think I'm host then I back out and find out, it'll say 'host migration'. I can usually tell when I'm host. The game / servers are honestly terrible at the moment though, I'm surprised there hasn't been an announcement about a fix they're working on.
  10. ColonicBoom

    How can you explain this?

    If you're talking about BO4, the last patch Treyarch put out completely wrecked the performance - that's all there is to it. You should be providing videos of the horrendous performance to Vondehaar + Treyarch + Activision, that's the only way this horrible mess will get fixed.

    DumaOS on the Netduma R1 is now in Open Beta!

  12. ColonicBoom

    Paid 280 for this

    The big patch messed the game/servers right up, we've just got to wait it out and hope Treyarch sort it quickly. It's horrible at the moment.

    ^ It was Treyarch's update that stuffed it, BO4 was pretty solid before that. Before the update, there were a couple of maps with a few frame rate issues (Gridlock and Contraband specifically) but the update took a massive dump on performance. The closer you get to an enemy the more is skips/stutter/teleports. Treyarch must be aware of it by now so we just have to wait until they work it out and fix it. If I were you, I'd send videos of the miserable performance issues to Treyarch, Vondehaar, etc, that's what I've been doing.

    Disgusting lag Black ops 4 tick rate ?

    I thought something weird was going on too, Xbox has been the same since the last update. They need to fix this quick because the last change has made the game play like s***.
  15. I'd just use 70/70. The results from that website vary somewhat with each test anyway so there's not really any point in doing that way.

    No server/p2p games in uk/Ireland

    Are we sure there is a UK server? I can't get any servers in the UK or France and I'm near London and the south coast. -edit. Now I've got it. 7ms.

    Too many cooks in the kitchen

    I was just going by the percentages. Neither DL or UL could add up to 80/20, not even close, so I assumed they must be his uncapped speeds - otherwise his 100% DL would be about 200mb. Doesn't really matter what the ISP offers as it's uncapped max, unless you live close enough to the cabinet to get that number. I only get 5mb UL. When I was on Virgin Media, I used to get 150/6 or something similar. I expect there are plenty of people that get around 5-6mb UL. But he's not in the UK anyway.

    Too many cooks in the kitchen

    Surely they must be his 'before throttle' speeds then.

    BO4 Changes...

    Just wondering what people might like to be changed in BO4. Don't bother putting the obvious, like frame rate when it gets busy on Contraband. My list: Minimap: People in your party aren't very easy to see, compared to the others in your team. Operator Mods: I've not seen anybody using operator mods at all, maybe they're too expensive, 3 slots seems excessive. Especially the VAPR which is bayonet, it's not reliable enough or fast enough. Contraband: Eurgh, that frame rate.

    Black Ops 4 Support

    When I get the 'lobby not joinable' message, after an out-of-geo host gets blocked, my auto-ping does see the host. (it is working as intended for me).

    Black Ops 4 Support

    Cheers mate, I'll give that a go tomorrow. It's strange how it does this, maybe the servers fell over at that location I was using. I played for ages with the geo covering EU without any problems, then suddenly it would only find dedis in the US (but not really in the US) for about an hour or so. Then after that it went back to EU servers for the rest of the evening. Did the same thing yesterday too.

    Black Ops 4 Support

    Is there a specific place to post misplaced dedis for BO4? These must be EU (ping 15ms) they're showing as NA, I can't get anything except these dedis at the moment so having to disable the Geo. d1ad6c374a70c2c7 d1ad703b4a70c2c7 d2ad37024a71c2c7

    Black Ops 4: General Gaming Discussion (not support)

    When you're on the game mode screen, where you can see Chaos Moshpit / Capture Moshpit, you're on 'Featured' game modes... Core and Hardcore are the next tabs along - can't quite remember, RB or RT to scroll I think.

    populating games with firter mode on

    I think there was an issue with servers when I was trying earlier. It was fine about 15 minutes later, locked myself onto the EU and 8ms from then on.

    populating games with firter mode on

    I've had to turn it off. I can't get a single game with the geo filter on Europe. Every game this evening seems to be on US servers, 135ms ping. Really feeling the delay.
