So TeaTowel & I started testing. What we found was:

  • It seems to work in Vs mode. It will say "found opponent" even if their out of your distance. Then it will continue to search
  • The rooms were down but they were also down when the Geo-Filter was off so its probably there end for now

Since searching is slower its recommend to make your Geo-Filter larger then say games like CoD. For example I'd recommend setting it to entire EU or entire US. Instead of making per country or state. The game is truly world wide so this will definitely help as you won't get cross-continental host which will be very very bad.

I can also confirm that Geo-Filter works great for Vs mode :)

So today the servers are back up for MKX on Xbox Live, for in game Chat Rooms / Faction War Page / Living Towers

The game seems to function fine out of the box with the Geo-Filter active regarding these game features. These menus in the game have been rocky since launch.

 

So yeah as above with your Geo-Filter on while searching for a Player match or Ranked match, the game will display Opponent Found but if they are outside your range it will just STAY on this screen AND KEEP SEARCHING. No need to leave the search and try again.  It may change between Looking For Opponent and Opponent Found but will only change to character screen when a host inside your filter is found.

 

If the MKX servers are down and you cannot view Chat Rooms / Faction Page / Living Towers , the game will still match make online via the Online menu. You can still search Player / Ranked / Private

 

Oh and with Geo-Filter on you can still enter Chat/Rooms with players outside of region, chat, view kombat card, and challenge... it will just fail to make connection if you try and fight.

Also when searching Player Match the game matches multiple opponents for you, if you see a host in your region on the Geo-Filter but no connection is made, this can be from them being matched in another game simultaneously, or declining your challenge if its a player match. Ranked will just start if a match is found.

its working on MKx mate :)

 

Oh nice, last time I have checked I couldn't enter rooms and join 1vs1 matches. 

Every time I wanted to play MKX I had to disable the geofilter. 

 

Thx Iain!

I wonder if a future update could save geofilter profiles for games?

 

I think this is already on the ticket system (but I can't check as it is down at the moment). If it isn't then it's a really good idea because different games can have quite different settings and it's much easier to push one button to have everything change.

This option would improve the router drastic for me. Because often I don't want to use the PC and just want to play games :)

 

By the way a big THANK YOU to the Netduma Team for their good work and support.
