My filter is not working, can someone help?

Asked by 6 years ago

Here is the script

Filtered = {"Word1","Word2","Word3"}
game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(function(p)
p.Chatted:connect(function(msg)
for i,v in pairs(Filtered) do
if msg == v then
p:Kick()
end
end
end)
end)

Whenever a player says a word in the Filtered table it should kick them. But it only works if they say the word in it so it cannot detect it in a sentence D: Please help!

For this script, you're going to want to use the find method. And I would also advise in using the lower method to match a word more easily. So, I have edited your script below, it should detect for the words in the wordlist whether the message was in caps or all lower case letters.

Filtered = {"Word1","Word2","Word3"}
game.Players.PlayerAdded:connect(function(p)
p.Chatted:connect(function(msg)
for i,v in pairs(Filtered) do
if string.find(msg:lower(), v:lower()) then
p:Kick()
end
end
end)
end)

Yes, yes. I know the lower method and was expecting to use that and I could never get find to work for some reason so I will test this, thanks! fireboltofdeath 630 — 6y

you can also use string.lower(msg), just FYI trogyssy 221 — 6y

I know that trog, I just find it easier to use the shortened method rather than the longer one. M39a9am3R 3209 — 6y
