Yes. Most of the time a friend or relative of the person in question is angered more than the actual one hurt by it! :wink:

We know there are new issues with this safer chat, and eliminating capital letters and proper punctuation was definitely not our intent. But because we were already overbudget for 2.0, we basically had to choose to leave it the way it was (with a whole slew of inappropriate words managing to work their way into chats) or try a fix that would eliminate more inappropriate words but may make chat a bit harder. We elected to go with the second option, but hopefully more funding will allow us to work on the chat system more if that's what people think we should spend that money on. Limiting funding definitely has its downfalls, but we're hopeful more funding will come in so we can make this game the best it can be (and make chat appropriate but not frustrating)! Thanks for your patience and understanding, everyone.

The - and ) use to be used to by pass the chat filter in the older version of the game, so that is why it has been taken out. guy and girl would most likely, be resorted to a gender spacific thing. Some people use all caps LIKE THIS to yell at other people on multiplayer, which is why it was removed.

I personaly like the safer chat, my spelling isn't perfect so it's hard to find the right words but I do manage and people know what I am saying.

As KarozaSpirit had said, the chatbox is a privelage and it's either we stick with the chat restrictions or they take the chatbox out compleatly.

loboLoco wrote:We have released a minor update to the game, version 2.0.3, with two improvements:

1) Better chat safeguards. We have made our chat filters smarter and stronger, for safer multiplayer chat sessions. These improvements are effective even if you're playing people with earlier versions of Episode 2 (versions 2.0.1 and 2.0.2)--the chat filters text on both the sender's and recipient's sides.

2) Extra food gained in Cattle Ranch mission is retained when returning to Slough Creek.

This does not have any fixes to the reported problems joining multiplayer games, but we hope to tackle that in the near future.
hey is this the version with amethyst mountain and slough creek? if it is that is a bummer! tell me if it's after the amethyst moutain and sough creek,please tell me.

No this is not episode 2.5 or episode 3,this is just a minor bugfix for episode 2. amythest mountain and slough creek are the only places you can visit for now.

It's great! I love the cattle ranch now, and the chat restrictions are not bad at all, considering they exist for our safety.

i find sometimes the chat restrictions can be a bit annoying because some workds are blocked that sometimes shouldnt be like if your role playing you cant say "puppy ears up" its strange but its good your wanting to protect members.
