#185517 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by ColonicBoom on 2 days ago

does dumaOS config for lag comp for other players, does it account for bad 10hz servers.


one had me playing a whole match with no graphic assets loaded, this was due to the geo filter being on.


Also why do you have to DL third party software (pingplotter) to see if the XR500 is even working?


It's been common knowledge for years that the Netduma can't control the opposition's internet and it's common sense.

Lag compensation is necessary, without it you'd be shooting at thin air.


I've never heard anything like this before, graphical assets load from your Xbox not from the server.


You don't have to download third party software at all. We suggest ping plotter, to people that are having problems, as a way to perform a test on their line so that they can provide us with a visual representation of the state of their network connection. We do this so that we can offer advice to help solve any problems that people are having that is outside of the control of the Netduma. Good look getting that level of support from anyone else.


If you have an issue then create a support thread, you're off-topic, any further off-topic posts will be removed from this thread.

Im hoping I can get some tech help with the issue.


Post up a thread, I'll check it for you.

Again, if the Mods would tell Netduma that they won't be posting or moderating any threads/posts until someone from Netduma gives a clear and honest answer to the members here about the R1 update, it can management understand how much they are missing the boat right now.


Or they can continue to toe the party line and say "we're volunteers" and "just doing our unpaid jobs" without accepting any consequences for their complicity in Netduma's behavior.  


Moderators are just long time users, with knowledge of the product. They're here to make sure that posts and people that break forum rules are removed.

I'm sure Netduma are aware of the situation without the moderators staging some kind of forum mutiny.


You can appreciate that I don't feel like laying my neck on the block for people that send death threats about my family and actively try to get me removed as a moderator.

No need to reply, this is a statement not the start of a discussion.

Any updates on enjoying DumaOS on R1?


I don't have any information to update you with.


Hmm, you just ignore people, till they get angry and you ban them. That's the way to behave! Even Queen can learn from you!


I don't have any information and I was asleep. I used to respond to say "I have no information", people got angry at that so I stopped posting it. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.


The Queen and I are very close, she's often asking for updates on DumaOS but she's always very polite and has never needed a warning or a suspension.

It says a lot when even the moderators have given up.


Just haven't seen much that needed moderating. And I've been enjoying the hot weather rather than sitting at the computer.

@asentrix used foul language against other members by attacking them? Are we being selective here? His post is already reported.


Unless I missed something, he didn't use foul language. You reported him for saying 'moron'.

While we don't condone name-calling and we do keep an eye on it, in the context it was written it wouldn't qualify as foul language even to a 16th century Pope.


Please use the report function for genuine breaches of forum rules rather than petty squabbles. Misuse of the report function can be considered 'spamming' and therefore a breach of forum rules.

To my knowledge the net Duma team are a U.K. based company and market all over the world including the EU. Look I’m not suggesting anything however when reading about false advertising the practice we’ve endured as consumers are within the realms of false advertising. Especially with the dead silence recently.

For anyone who is interested: In particular this Act protects consumers from misleading advertisements and ensures that trade is fair. Under the Act it is an offence for an advertiser/trader to make false claims about goods, services or prices. ... EU laws also ensure that misleading advertising is forbidden in all Member States... Careful guys people could have claims...


That's not how it works. The Advertising Standards Authority nor the Consumer Rights Act cover a delay to the release of a free firmware upgrade.

Stop spreading misinformation and stop trying to stir.

The post that was deleted was a post where he only quoted me but didn't add a comment.  He then posted again with his comments.  The first post, without anything but my quote, was the one deleted.


Again, most mods elsewhere would have deleted it or combined it. I'm not saying whoever took action was wrong.  I'm just pointing out that he/she/gender pronoun did, in fact, have a post deleted.



Of course that one was deleted, it didn't have any content. I removed it because it was just a quote of the thing written directly above it. Standard procedure.


That's clearly not the post he's talking about though. He said "so I post again..." and then posted something else that he'd already said - that hadn't been deleted.

#183022 Cables

Posted by ColonicBoom on 06 June 2018 - 11:37 AM

Ok thanks.
What would be better for my console.
Two ways for me:
1: xr500 is connected with a longer cable to my modem, but is placed in my room and has a short lan cable connected to my console.
2: xr500 is placed next to my modem with a short cable, but there is a longer cable that connects the console and xr500


Mine is connected with a slightly longer cable between my modem and router, then a shorter cable between my router and Xbox. Which also means it's easy to plug in an ethernet for my laptop if I want to test (because the router isn't in a different room to my Xbox).


I don't know if it makes any difference but I was paranoid that the router shouldn't be right next to the modem, just in case it was radiating magnetic interference (or something like that).


I've no idea if it does that though, it probably doesn't.

Yep, they suspend me every time I comment. lol see you all in a couple of days.


You won't get suspended if your posts are appropriate. Your next suspension will be the 3rd strike though.

Is the partnership with Netgear preventing you from releasing the DUMAOS on the R1. Is that the real reason that the software hasn't been released and the reason the lawyers got involved at the last minute?  


That would explain the lack of communication.


I wouldn't have thought so. I'd have thought those sort of terms would have been set in stone before any deal was done.

#182813 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Waiting for this one to be removed too.


Apparently its against code of conduct to ask for an update, their insecurity is going too far.


No it isn't.


It's against the rules to spread false information though.

#182615 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by ColonicBoom on 02 June 2018 - 01:57 PM

I agree completely with you. Just coming back from a suspension myself, and I still strongly believe that buying a product entitles me to comment on it for better or for worse. And I don't see myself stopping, just because someone is too quick on the banhammer.


You weren't suspended for your comments, you were suspended for spamming me. I gave you ample warning to stop doing it but you persisted.


You should read the comments on the previous page about discussing suspensions before posting again.

#182547 R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

Posted by ColonicBoom on 01 June 2018 - 06:55 PM

The most recent example being yesterday, a guy commented saying after reading the forum comments he’s decided to not buy the R1 until the update situation was resolved. That was it he didn’t swear, nor was he aggressive it was a reasonable post. I come back on this morning and what do you know his comment and 2 other peoples comments have been removed.

Either the rules are unclear or somone is abusing his or her power. Why not shed light onto what’s acceptable and what isn’t?


The rules are obvious and common sense. If you can't abide by them then you will be removed.


Fine, I will explain why the comment that you wanted to quote was removed because you're so unwilling to accept that the moderation was correct.


That comment was posted by a known spammer who had created a new account to get around his existing ban from the forum. He created this new account to pretend that he is a potential customer that has been put off by the delay etc, in an attempt to make this thread boil over.


I knew that some people would be fooled by this, genuine potential customers could easily have fallen for it, you fell for it.


Now you have this information, do you consider it acceptable that I deleted his post and banned his account?

Seeing as it was a fake account, from a banned spammer, trying to stir up discontent in the thread/forum for no purpose other than to be malicious and create problems for the moderators / admin / Netduma, all of which are things that rightly should result in a ban.

but the worst out of the lot is how people have been getting banned when they voiced their frustration on the matter.

I hope this sheds some light on to be devs who have been non exsistsnt since April and the forum mods who delete comments and ban people. This is why we are pissed off.


People are not being banned for voicing their opinions, that's evident from the amount of posts in this thread. Some accounts have been suspended for breaching forum rules, spamming, trying to stir things up, being rude, etc. The majority of people in here are able to voice their opinion in an acceptable way and then their posts do not need to be removed nor their accounts suspended.


When someone has a suspension applied to their account or a post deleted, it should be obvious to them that they should not post the same thing again and that they shouldn't publicly question the action taken or call out the moderator that took action. They can use a proper channel if they believe a mistake was made and it will be looked into. And of course they should not send vile messages to the moderators.


It should be pretty obvious how to post without getting suspended / deleted, if people think "I wonder if I'll get suspended" then they're probably at risk of getting suspended.
