New Car Filter System (List of Games Screen)

The car filters help you find the host you want.

The QUICK method of using the filters :

Use the car class buttons on the right of the screen to quickly set several car filters. ALL is the default.

For fine tuning or manual operation :

Click on the vertical car names in the list of games. You can set them to GREY, BLUE or RED.

GREY : You don't mind if this car is enabled or not
BLUE : This car MUST be available on the host
RED : This car must NOT be available on the host

- Leave most of them GREY (the default colour)
- The cars you want to use, set them to BLUE
- Use RED only for cars you really don't want to see

Guests : please do join empty hosts - people will join!
Hosts : please don't allow all cars, if possible.
