|--cheat||This will enable the cheat, which wraps words instantly when they are written correctly. You dont need to press space/enter. It is another question if this "cheat" actually helps...|

In these files, you can specify the location of directories for game rules and word lists. You can also activate cheat mode in these files if you write "cheat = yes". If you create a configuration file in your home directory, you must also create a file called $HOME/.typespeed/score. All your personal high scores are stored in this file, not anymore in system wide high score file. This is needed to prevent malicious users to pretend to have 1000 points in e.g. words.eng whereby directory for word lists has been changed. In order to compete with system-wide users, you have to remove your personal configuration file.
If you would like to create your own word list, you have to follow these simple rules:
The first line contains the description that will be listed in word list selection menu. You cannot use more than 60 characters.
A word list must consist of at least 22 different words, i.e. no duplicated words. The words must not be longer than 19 characters. Should they be longer, they wont be parsed; instead they are silently dropped. Words must not contain escape sequences, tabs or spaces. These words will be dropped, too.
Blank lines will be ignored.
If you would like to see your created word list included into next release, please send me an e-mail (email@example.com).
Do not use typespeed version 0.5.2 or higher with a version < 0.5.2. The usage of network control words has been changed, so you could not end games.
If you have used typespeed < 0.6.0 and you wish to use your high scores in newer versions, you have to convert them into new format. convert can be used for this task. convert takes two arguments: the old high score directory and the new high score file. Due to changed high score file format, it is expected that converted scores (especially cps) differ.
