Well I hope that Tutorial helped you, Good Luck in editing Filter.lst
Geh. There’s no need to copy the filter list file from your Jazz 2 CD in order to make it existant on the HD; you can simply create the filter.lst file in your Jazz 2 directory and make a list of all the words you want to filter. Oh, and I’d suggest to be more specific on the filename for the filter, as it’s filter.lst, not filter. Extensions are very important, indeed.
I think editing a filter is too self-explanatory to be turned into a whole article – but otherwise, it’s a pretty descriptive article nonetheless.
(P.S. there is also a more convenient way to accomplish this task; by working with it in good ol’ DOS. Just go to the DOS prompt, go to your Jazz 2 directory, and type in “edit filter.lst”. Simple.)
Fixed the problem Marco.
I would simply like to add, if you are going to use the filter to filter out bad words, then please don’t say: —— what does that mean? All that that shows is nothing. The point of the filter is to block it from you, and, well, if you aren’t just trying to be annoying, then take out the filter.
IMHO is this a ridiculous and outrageous violation of the right for free opinion.
Besides that, using this would make one wonder exactly what the cussers would be saying and eventually everyone will delete the file again just out of curiosity.
But besides that this is well put and explained. And yes I do have better things to do with my time than bug the writer of this help thingy… I just wanted to say this :)
I don’t use filters.
Great this can come in handy.
One more reason why to favor Piz’s method:
Some JJ2 CD’s don’t have a Resources-directory, just an install “Setup.exe” file. :) (this is common with especially UK and Europe distributions)
I like to see them curse because then I think I\‘m wining, lol,
@Haze: True, mine\‘s on of those. To make a filter.lst out of nowhere, open notepad, select \“Save as…\”, click on the dropdown menu next to \“Save as type:\” and choose \“all files\”, then just write the text \“filter.lst\” to \“File name\” and the text file will be saved in .LST format. You can edit it in notepad.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
