Thread: Fake File Filter?

  1. #1
    Hi again.
    I have noticed the amount of fake files now on Kazaa is HUGE (I've been away for a while). Are there any tools I can download to filter the crap out of the searches in Kazza??.
    I was wondering is K++ 2.4.3 the best version still?. Is there a version now with a built in filter so fakes don't even show up in searches??
    Many thanks
    Nine.

    kazaa is now officailly full of shit. try another application like emule or ares.

    http://www.emule-project.net/
    http://www.aresgalaxy.org/

    Use MP3Shield for blocking fake music.

    As for built in protection, wait for the next release of K-Lite 2.7. It will have a built-in check for fakes. http://www.my-k-lite.com
    blah blah blah... whatever...

    Thanks for the replies.
    I think I will wait for 2.7 to be fully tried and tested before I look at that. For now I'm going to try Ares as suggested by 4play (Thanks mate). I've installed it and is soo much like the Kazaa G.U.I. Seems to search really fast, quite impressed so far but only used it for an hour. It reminds me of how Kazaa used to be back in the day. I've only got 56k dialup but Ares seems to tollerate my feeble speeds.
    Thanks.

    works for me. Anywayz, its curently set to redirect to http://www.realityradio.org/internationalforums/
    K-Lite 2.7 only has forums right now, but maybe later they will have a home page.

    There is no way to properly distinguish fakes from the real thing. The hashing method that is used by Kazaa is flawed. Both real files and fakes can show up as a single file, effectively corrupting the resulting file as you download it from the various sources.

    i think the new KZhash addresses that issue
