#185513 Forum Is its time up?

Posted by Macca61 on 6 days ago

If you're a mod here you're allowed to have your own opinion - we don't force an opinion on our mods. They do a fantastic job, and we are extremely grateful for what they do. The forum is toxic of late, and we totally understand why. Neither myself or Fraser have any control over when the R1 update is out, nor do we have control over any news on that subject.
There is cooperation between the Netduma team and the mods behind the scenes, so we don't totally leave them to their own devices. I'm confident that once that update is out for the R1 you'll see a revival of this forum and everything will begin to get back on track. Don't worry too much Macca - the community is weaker than it was before, but soon it will be stronger than it ever was.

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!

#185502 Forum Is its time up?

Posted by Macca61 on 6 days ago

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,

#185042 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by Macca61 on A week ago

We now have 37 pages of nothing!

I'll just reiterate "NOTHING TO SEE HERE"

#183349 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by Macca61 on 10 June 2018 - 08:37 AM

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.......... :)

#183348 Realism for COD

Posted by Macca61 on 10 June 2018 - 08:25 AM

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!!! :)

#181609 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by Macca61 on 20 May 2018 - 08:07 AM

The more I look over Netdumas twitter page the more I think that update about something big wasn't for the R1 at all. 
The only mention of the R1 seems to be people asking when is it going to be ready.
They sure seem to talk about the XR500 and how great it is. 
Not so much about the R1. Maybe the silence is a hint.

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! :)

Posted by Macca61 on 20 April 2018 - 10:24 AM

I know that there has been some posts previously regarding downgrading if they didn't like the new upgrade.
So maybe as an afterthought they should include the backwards Compatibility. Who know's

#177843 Duma OS

Posted by Macca61 on 10 April 2018 - 07:41 AM

Ok, it's now a week until the Duma OS drops as a "freebie" into our laps.

What are your expectations for the system and what are you hoping it will "fix"!

Personally I haven't read or followed any of the threads about it, other than to say the GUI looks more sleek and use friendly.

So gives us your thoughts and aspirations for Duma0S.........

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 10 March 2018 - 09:03 AM

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 :)
