dlFilter.mrc - Filter out messages on file sharing channels
Authors: DukeLupus and Sophist
dlFilter is a text filtering script for mIRC. It is created with file sharing channels in mind, and it filters out all the file sharing commands sent by other users, leaving only the responses to your own file sharing comamnds and chat displayed.
In 2017, dlFilter received a significant upgrade from the previous major release 1.16 with significant new functionality, which we hope will encourage strong take-up.
- Complete rewrite to make it more efficient
- Significantly better filtering lists
- A DCC GET firewall - automatically accepting files you have explicitly requested
- (For channel operators) oChat - a channel-like window whereby channel operators can chat amongst themselves behind the scenes
Feedback on this new version is appreciated. Now that dlFilter is hosted on Github, we welcome contributions of bug fixes and further improvement from the community.
The best way to download the latest formal release of the script is to go to the Releases Page and download the zip file.
Alternative to download the latest alpha version right click here and select save.
The best place to install scripts is in your mIRC settings directory (use the mIRC command
//echo -a $mircdir to find out where this is) or in a scripts subdirectory.
When you have placed the file in the directory you want, then use the mIRC command
//load -rs1 [directory]\dlFilter.mrc.
The best way to upgrade if you are on dlFilter v2 is to use the built in upgrader. Otherwise, download the dlFilter.mrc script as above, replace your old version with the new version and restart mIRC.
