Filter Improvement
« on: November 11, 2008, 02:20:58 pm »
This had probably been suggested in the past but why can we search specifically for Realistic, Survival, Weapon Mod, etc games and not filter them out? This has been bugging me since Weapon Mods have been introduced and now I can't even tell what servers use the standard guns anymore, I can only really count on a couple. Two servers doesn't seem like it's nearly enough out of all of them to be standard CTF with no mods, but I can't filter out the rest to find out.

Yeah I support this idea, It has been suggested before but nowadays there are a lot of custom servers out there so I really think this is needed.

Yeah, I've been a LONG time supporter of this, since I came to these forums pretty much. It is my number one wanted improvement.

Yeah this would help a lot, F12. Placing each mode into catogories will save alot of people heaps of time.

F12.
We can search for realistic games, but we can't exclude them from search results (we have only two options: if we check a box next to "realistic", only realistic servers wil show, and if we left it unchecked, both realistic and unrealistic servers will show).
So I think filters need an upgrade.
Imo, for each category (realistic, survival, bots, etc.) we should be able to choose one of three: yes (show only server with this enabled), no (show only servers with this disabled) and both.
And we could add "Friendly Fire" filter also.

Another one of those ideas that leaves you wondering why it wasn't implemented in the first place. I support it.

I support it too. It wastes too much time looking to the settings of each server.

Also something that would take probably only a simple, single change in the code:
Allow enough drop-down menu items for the game mode filter so that they all show and you don't have to scroll!
Can't think of anything original to put here...

This idea just keeps on comin' back, for a good reason.

I still F12 for this and any other filter improvements.

Wonder if this could make it into 1.5...

f12, for what I think is the 4th time now. Maybe the devs have something against this suggestion and the 100% approval it's gotten every reincarnation.

I remember I wanted to have an option to filter away servers with home made maps (but never suggested). so yes, sure, why not add a better filter?

It was much loved, and I like the picture (where one click makes a check, two makes an X, and 3 make it empty).

Yeah, that's a good implementation of what I was talking about above.

Didn't know it had been suggested so much, haha. Either way I still think it needs to be added.

Wheres the poll? I think this is a pretty strong F12
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole a bike and then asked for forgiveness.
