I actually have the XR1000 rather than XR700 but I believe the answers are similar.
I'm a beginner at the DumaOS so I have some questions that hopefully get answered. Regarding the Geo-Filtering for console, it seems that everyone I play with gets banned before I get the chance to start a game with them, until I allow them manually. Is there a way that it allows people to play with me automatically? Also using the Geo-Filter I can see where the server is located but its on the otherside of the country. Should I make the circle large enough for the server to be inside for better connection?
You need to take the tick off filtering mode and allow their IPs. Only after that can you possibly put the filter mode back if your friends have the same IP. Otherwise you will have to repeat the operation. My advice is that when you play with them it leaves the filtering mode disconnected.
Actually, I think it appeared before using filtering mode because I didn't allow/deny any servers. This was the only server to appear I believe.
Completely quit the game and hard turn off the console.
Remove the device from the Geo-Filter
Flush the cloud
Re-add the device to the Geo-Filter
Setup your settings with 0 Ping Assist and strict mode on, radius where you want to force the servers
Wait 2 minutes
Boot up the game
