    How about this boys, most of you know the situation that us mods are in. Which is trying to keep things civil and still answer questions about the issue at hand. And most of you also know that we don't know anymore than you guys do about the release. None of us are employed by Netduma, we try to help out on the forum, don't get paid for it, just really liked the R1 when it first came out and helped people who were having issues with the set up in their home networks.
     
    I don't think any of us in their position with the opportunity to partner with Netgear would have done anything different than they did. It is a business at the end of the day, and anyone in business knows that you do what is best for the business and growth of the product you market. Believe it or not we didn't know anything about the Netgear deal, until it was announced. Again we aren't on the inside of their business dealings, meetings etc, were just  owners and paying customers like everyone else on here.
     
    I myself am disappointed that the update for the R1 isn't out yet. As I've said all along I am a OG Duma fan as it has some things that the XR 500 does not. Yes I have both but my preference is still the R1 as the features that I'm really interested in are gone be on it, anti spike and anti jitter to be specific.
     
    Again as much as we would like to "make them" tell us something, we can't. We're in the same boat as everyone else patiently or impatiently waiting for any word on the status or the actual release of the new OS. Until then we're just trying to keep the peace, which as you guys are well aware of is not an easy task at this point.

    Yes the server will then be shown correctly on the map. I have seen the server in Germany several times so you will see it.

    The cloud database has now been updated, it optimises Fortnite, PUBG and other games. Games that will be most affected will be those using AWS or Azure dedicated servers. They should now all correctly be identified as a dedicated server as well as all appear in the correct location.
     
    You will now be able to Filter within the region for both Fortnite and PUBG. The game will attempt to load you into the server if its outside your radius so wait then re-search and game should be within your radius.Alternatively you can use Spectating Mode / Full radius to see where the server is located and if you don't like it, back out of the lobby and search again.
     
    HOW TO APPLY
     
    R1 Users
     
    The changes will auto install onto the R1 in 24-48 hours. There is no way to accelerate this. To filter these games, add your PC or console to the Geo-Filter and select either the Xbox Live or PlayStation service (choose either one if you are playing on PC) . Make sure Bleeding Edge is selected in Settings > Miscellaneous. After 24 hours of the update being completed on all routers if everything is working correctly we will move this to Auto Cloud.
     
    XR500 Users
     
    For XR500 please click Flush Cloud in the options on the Geo-Filter Map and it will automatically download the latest cloud. Then go to a different R-App and then back to the Geo-Filter. Then add your PC or console to the top of the Geo-Filter. If you are playing on PC, choose the Unreal Engine service. Consoles should automatically choose the right service. 
     
    Here is a video of the Cloud update in action on Fortnite:

    ^Right?^
     
    The absurdity of the whole situation is unreal. It's absurd that I'm still following this, but my interest is peaked by the level of egregious effort it takes to blow it so bad. It's been such a long time at this point. You could string people along for way longer with much less backlash if they (Netduma Staff) just posted here to say almost anything at this point.
     
    The reality is, I don't think they made any bad decisions besides how they've failed to communicate to customers what's going on. Things change and deals happen, and for fun, here's how I imagine it all going down....
     
    'Look at us developing DumaOS for the R1, this is gonna be sick boys!, Wait, whats this?.... Holy crap!... NETGEAR just made us an offer on our software boys!, heck yeah!, we've finally MADE IT boys!...Wait,....whats this in the fine print,... they want us to sign a ND agreement and we have to switch to developing only for their hardware, hm.....well whatever, we can finish the R1 version right after we are done with the Netgear version! Shouldn't take very long, we banged out the last one in a couple of weeks...'
     
    Months later
     
    'Man these Netgear guys are sticky about bugs and testing. This is taking forever....'
     
    Months later
     
    'Hey guys, it's strange but the guys who bought the R1 are starting to get aggressive in the forums, what should we do?... Tell em it's coming...'
     
    Months later
     
    'Finally we got Duma OS on a real powerful router! It works great boys!, look at all the exposure we have now! We've made it! We deserve champagne, lets toast!...'
     
    A week later
     
    'Hey boys, we really gotta get working on DumaOS for the R1, for some reason those boys are chapped.....Ok, ok, lets look at this,.. what do we have here,... WOW, this version is really incomplete, look at all the stuff we have to do to make it as polished as the version we made for Netgear,..bugs,bugs,bugs,.. Ok tell em it will take a month, tell em April 14th.
     
    April 13th
     
    'Oh man, bugs, bugs, bugs, "Software development is hard" (actual quote from Twitter), what should we say to them?...nothing, I don't know how long this is gonna take us to sort out and Netgear just called and they want more features working by next week....'
     
    end...
     
    In reality I have no clue if it's true or not because Netduma hasn't told me any different, I'm just left here to attempt to make sense of it on my own. I get why they did what they did, I'd have made the exact same business decisions, if I were in their shoes. If they would have just kept early adopters in the loop then I'd be that early adopter who is happy to support a small company trying to make it big and I'd even be willing to wait patiently on the sidelines while the boy make it big, but they can't even show me the respect of telling me the truth.
     
    Ok, now cue Alex to Netduma's defense, because Netdumas not.

    I understand the frustration and that is why I have not interacted in the thread letting people blow off steam, I have seen people posts about crying, this is incorrect voicing disappointment is not crying. I wish it had been launched already with more gamers using DumaOS as I am sure Iain and the team do too.
     
    Has licensing to Netgear scuppered earlier plans for a 2017 release I am sure it has, I think that any business would be crazy to turn an offer from one of the biggest router company's in the world.
     
    Has the above upset users of course and Iain will be gutted it has, he is now under pressure twice as much as he used to be, probably more and is fighting to get the DumaOS out for everyone.
     
    I may buy a XR500 soon but looking at the specs of the R1 firmware and the Netgear firmware the R1 does so much more at the moment. I am sure when Iain releases it for the R1 he will then have time to write new RApp's and then it will catch up and then super seed the R1 but for now for me the R1 fw is where its at.
     
    All of the above are my thought's and not of Netduma as I am just a gamer and help out when I or if I can.
     
    Have some people taken it a bit far, yes but only because they have been wound up by other member's to a point where they are getting even more annoyed.
    If there has been any behavior from mod's or members that is deemed inappropriate please use the report process so it can me monitored and dealt with accordingly.

    As Boom has already stated we are also paying customers and are not paid by netduma or represent their opinions on their behalf. Our role is to respond as best we can to members issues in a polite manner and maintain forum integrity.

    This forum is unique. In most forums, mods do not really engage with users but float around in the background.
    Most forums are not as lenient with dissent and poor behaviour as in here. In most forums, most of the users in here would be on warning points or permanently banned.
     
    Forum mods are also paying customers, none of them are employed by Netduma, none of their opinions should be taken as representative of the opinions of Netduma.
     
    Whoever you're talking about though, that is talking down to users, report their post using the report button so that I can see what you mean.

    Ah, the much-maligned English weather.   No overcast sky here, my friend. It's wall-to-wall sunshine and blue sky for as far as the eye can see.   The lawn is freshly mowed. BBQ cleaned and ready for the Rib-eyes, and enough alcohol is chilling to sink an Orion-class battleship. And I get to play with fire.   What could possibly go wrong?

    And what in the name of Greek buggery is going on here?
     
    Dissension among the rank and file? The great unwashed daring to get ideas above their station? Such treachery would not have been tolerated during my time roaming these esteemed halls.
     
    And never mind page after page of this self-entitled, whiny, conspiracy bullshit. Why hasn't the knuckle-dragging Vanilla lowland been unleashed to quell this foetid uprising? Who has the dubious honour of holding the keys to his cage nowadays? - @Crossy, @Fraser, @JD, @Zenon??
     
    To the rabble-rousers, a word in your shell-likes...
    You may think you're pretty good at this bitchfesting thingy, so you will be disheartened to learn you're all pretty shit at it. None of the barbs resonate because they're tired, rehashed and, quite honestly, pathetic compared to what's gone before. They smack of pre-pubescent angst and the ramblings of admonished children; consequently, nothing hits home. Overall, it makes you look terminally stupid so put away the scatter-gun approach to insults and veiled threats. Stop ejecting toys from prams and wait politely in their house for your FREE upgrade.
     
    @Fuzzball - By my return, I expect to see your opposable toes firmly gripping the throats of these pusillanimous little skid marks. I sense the peasants are revolting, and it's 'Vitai Lampada' time for the Duma Army and its brethren.
