Hello! I find often that many of us in this forum seem to have an issue where we constantly get booted from lobbies with geo filter enabled.

what if DumaOs integrated a smart action feature where when enabled it finds you a lobby host close by , it then disables Itself so that way you can stay in the lobby minimizing the amount of times you get booted in games such as Destiny & other p2p games.

I find in my case whenever I set the geo filter to about 1200 miles or lower with strict mode off, I consistently get error codes/booted out of peer 2 peer games such as destiny, uncharted 4, and even cod ghosts for example.
I believe a feature like this for the geo filter would be amazing because I do find hosts very close by with v low latency, though I can't seem to stay in the lobby long enough before getting removed.

With new innovation comes new devices. With new devices like the r1 comes new software like the geo filter. With new firmware comes new improvements to these things like a smart geo filter.. What are your guys thoughts on something like this being implemented ? geo filter is one of the best implementations I've seen especially for a router. Let's make it even better. Let's get rid of the booting so we can get back to gaming ;)

I'm not sure why you're getting booted in other games but we can do a 1 on 1 to look at that.

 

Disable the Geo-filter when you've got a game? If you do that manually does it work as you expect?

I don't know anything about Destiny's matchmaking but Infinite Warfare's hybrid matchmaking is to blame for the lobby booting in that.

 

It picks a player-host in the lobby (within your Geo Filter parameters) then it switches to a dedi just as the game is about to start. If it picks a dedi outside of your radius then you'll be kicked. I cover Western Europe with my Geo so it very rarely affects me.

 

But IW matchmaking regularly falls apart and kicks you anyway.

 

They've recently introduced a bug/problem that stops most people from being able to party up at all (on xbox at least).


I like cats and cheese and CoD. Don't mix them up, it'll ruin your lunch and your Xbox. And your cat.

In my speculation on how halo 5 works with Duma - I'll find a lobby , it will create a dedicated server showing people connected , then there will be no indication that the game is loading on the monitor of the xb1. I will look over at the geo filter and see a pad lock indicator that shows up near NY which I'm not trying to connect to (I'm in Colorado, USA at the moment), then halo 5 will tell me something is wrong with the server and boot me. Shortly after the pad lock dissapears then I have to re que until it finds a server closer to me.

In uncharted 4 it will find a lobby close by as geofikter indicates , stalled matchmaking in my screen then boot me out of the lobby and re que .

I found when manually disabling geo filter right after finding a match seems to yield same booting result. It's though as if the geo filter is still active For some odd seconds after being disabled .

Halo 5 that's how it works unfortunately, they don't try to connect to the server until it's actually trying to load you in. 

 

Shouldn't happen in Uncharted 4 so if you make a 1 on 1 topic I can take a look.

 

Same as above, please make a 1 on 1 topic.
