That's what I thought

Yeah I saw your shout outs about your problems, glad you got it sorted :)

#175270 Fortnite Tips | Top 5 Tips For Beginners - How To Get Better At Fortnite

Posted by Macca61 on A week ago

Might have to give it a try...just one problem I don't know where to get it...SMH
Is it a hard copy disk, download,etc for PS4 ?
I guess that shows how up to date on it I am... :D

Download it from the PS store, and select your server region from the setting in the pre game lobby.

Just be aware you have to scroll down until you come to the server selection! As there are quite a lot of settings :)

#175150 Fortnite Servers

Posted by Macca61 on A week ago

No probs, it's not a hassle, I Just forget to do it! ( senior moment) lol

If I remember correctly one of them was around 5475kms away and it was about 140 + ms which would be about right for the USA.

I will get the ID next time I'm on :)

Still looks like the same avatars etc, and score streaks :(

#172457 is the new router/dumaos worth it?

Posted by Macca61 on 08 February 2018 - 11:56 AM

There are many differences, the huge upgrade in hardware is just one of those. Quad Core CPU with two dedicated to pure network processing and of course the fantastic AC WiFi. In terms of DumaOS itself, it's way more streamlined, easier to use, more robust and faster. Its easier to use while still having advanced options for those that like to tinker. QoS can be exclusively automatic if you would like it to be, automatically prioritising your consoles/games and then applying Anti-Bufferbloat (Anti-Flood on R1) whenever this happens or giving full speed when not playing. The Dashboard provides a one stop customisable shop for your favourite features all sharing one screen where you can change settings on the fly without going to all the different features. More indepth Network Monitor, I could go on.

SOLD! To the man with cute dog face! Lol

#171338 UK based players

Posted by Macca61 on 25 January 2018 - 08:12 AM

When I play COD, I have the geo filter set to 1000km ping on 0 and my home location in the NW of England.
I notice I never see any UK hosts. I get UK players in the lobbies but they ever show up on the GF. But there is always a cluster of red circles around the French coast and the lobbies are always full of European players.
Is there a reason for this?

Hi Raddy, or Big Dog

Just out of curiosity, why do you want to know about the stats etc? Is it a need to know, or is it useful in some way?

Answers on a post card please :)

#169683 Nighthawk XR500 with DumaOS coming soon to UK.

Posted by Macca61 on 12 January 2018 - 12:27 PM

agreed matey. But for some they will want the Nighthawk when it is out over here :)

Unless you are seriously into gaming, I don't see the advantage in shelling out £300 hard ones for an extra bit of hardware.
(Dons flame proof suit) but no doubt there will be the early adopters who will get it because any advantage is an advantage however minuscule it may be!

BUT, the biggest caveat is what ISP you have and all the variables that come with it. Can anyone seriously tell me that it would improve the likes of Virgin? Although it's the modem that can and does cause the problem.

I think I will watch and wait, and see what the outcome of the d/l in April :)

#169179 Major Announcement: Netduma partner with NETGEAR to launch the Nighthawk XR50...

Posted by Macca61 on 09 January 2018 - 12:38 PM

I can understand people are frustrated that they now have to wait longer for the Duma OS. Personally speaking I don't think a few more months is going hurt :)
I think that people are expecting to much from a new operating system, as no router/modem can fix your ISP if it's a shit/jittery connection as well as all the other variables that go into gaming.

If your are just expecting a more user friendly bug free OS then you will probably be delighted :) if you can't wait till April buy the Netgear lol ;)

#167776 Is there anyway you can block dedicated ip servers permanently?

Posted by Macca61 on 24 December 2017 - 09:28 AM

No, you can only temporarily block them. You can try and reduce the range of your geo filter, or camp on top of the server you would like to join.
If you are playing COD it will connect you to a host and then dump you in the dedicated server. So you may struggle to get games if you live in a area that doesn't have a lot of servers.

#167358 congestion control DSL reports A+ A+ A+

Posted by Macca61 on 18 December 2017 - 08:09 AM

That is good, but does it make any difference to your gaming? I spent hours doing the same thing over a few days, but when I played BO's it still was very inconsistent.
It has gotten that way that I don't even bother running DSL reports as IMO it is ok at the time of the test, as soon as you start gaming it goes to rat shi:)
