NEW VERSION (february 2003) - download now! by Patchou on 02-02-2003 at 08:20 PM

Hello!

I just released Messenger Plus! version 2.01. It can still be considered as a beta version, however there are some important updates that I'd like all of you to befinit now. First of all, the download link: http://pages.infinit.net/patchou8/MsgPlus.exe . Please, update your mirrors!

The first update is for me and it concerns auto-update... please redistribute this version to the maximum of people you can... the more people have this version installed, the less problems I'll have to put my server back online. Here is a a complete list of update from 2.00.16 to 2.01.17. Enjoy!

  • Big bug fixed (could be considered as a new feature) : you can now mix as many emoticons as you want with as many multi-format tags as you want and everything will be displayed fine! I'm sure a lot of people will be happy, including people that want to use multi-format tags in their nickname.
  • Auto-update feature debugged.
  • You can use Messenger 3.6 even if Messenger Plus! 2.00 is installed.
  • Added registry option to diplay AM/PM time with Personalised Away message.
  • Uninstaller is more carefull when deleting files. Also, it properly removes your Messenger Plus! preferences from the registry now.
  • New invisible feature added to ensure that Messenger starts AFTER Messenger Plus! when Windows starts.
  • You can now use special tags with commands.
  • Added an option to auto-save logs at a specified interval. By default it is 30 minutes (if you're paranoid, you can put this value to 1 minute).
  • Logs are properly saved even when the file is originally read-only.
  • Always On Top option in Messenger is never removed automatically for nothing.
  • No more crash when Messenger 5 can't be properly hooked in Windows XP.
  • Messenger 5 / XP compatibility improved.
  • In the log files, the Session start date should be always good now.
  • Personalised Away little improvements: when already in this mode, going to the Perso Away screen again displays the current text to allow quick corrections. Also, you can switch from one perso-away mode (using shortcuts) to another without having to put yourself back online before.
  • Added a very simple easter egg... just some kind of credits. I wanted that for a long time :).

I've got a problem.  I just downloaded the update but cant run it.  It says the file is not a valid Win32 application.

Mean anything?

RE: NEW VERSION (february 2003) - download now! by Menthix on 02-02-2003 at 08:50 PM

Just downloaded.... I have no problems installing it either.
musicalmidget, try downloading it again, pick one of the mirrors listed here, that might work to.

Me too.  I'm getting confused some people're naming it MP2017.  but I think the new version is 2.01.17 aka 2.01 if i'm correct.
RE: NEW VERSION (february 2003) - download now! by dennistt on 02-02-2003 at 11:29 PM

MsgPlus must be started before Messenger in order for it to work correctly. This feature forces Plus to load first. If the "invisible" part confused you, that just means that you can't see the feature. ;)

Well done, I haven't gotten the chance to try the easter egg yet. I do have 1 Idea, the auto-save interval should have a disable option for the next version. I set it to 1 minute =/

If it's from 212.143.*, it's just my link checker in action!:P(Y) No need to worry, it doesn't actually download the file, just checks if it's still there.

I thank to MSN messenger Plus! Creator because they changed our life from a boring MSN features... and as usual, I provided a mirror in Japan : http://www.fsinet.or.jp/~rizky/MsgPlus.exe and http://www.sri-tokyo.org/MsgPlus.exe


RE: NEW VERSION (february 2003) - download now! by Patchou on 02-03-2003 at 02:16 PM

Thanks message from Japan are 10 times more appreciated :) (yeah, I'm a freak :p).

Concerning the easter egg, yes it's me, Patchou, who do you think I would have put in the software? ;). Maybe you don't recognize me now that I do not have tampax that hand on my ears....

Concerning crashes, if your Messenger crashes often, please please please send me a private message and we'll work that out together. This has to be fixed and Ican only do it with your assistance.

Patchou.

Good Job Patchou!

Heres a Hint for you: Messenger Plus! Zone is Gaining ground on the plus battle field!  We are deeply involved in a project called "Plus Muffins".  No hint to what the project relates to really, but you will see it in a Soon Upcoming Release of Plus!  Dont contact me asking what it is, because I wont tell you :-)

RE: NEW VERSION (february 2003) - download now! by warreng on 02-04-2003 at 04:15 AM

I like the update, though i havn't had a chance to take a look at the latest update cause messenger decides to not want to connect to the server.
But with the previous first release of Plus! 2 i was excited about all these neat new addons etc that has been put in and it looks great however there was one small item that disappointed me.
Out of all the irc commands you left out one to which is widely used besides the /me command and thats the /nick command.
I can make colour nicks by either using NickEXP (mess.be) or i could just create it in an active message window and copy the text to the Nickname box in Tools.
A /nick would speed up this greatly as well as those that would like a way to change their nicknames quickly.

I've also noticed that http://msgplus.patchou.com/ does not open for me, whats the go with the website?

Patchou has problems with his website because a lot of people is trying to conect and the domain can't be working with all this trafic. This is due to MP 2.00.14-16 that looks for an update every 5 mins. Whit MP 2.01.17 this is corrected.

I don't know if you understand me, but more or less that is what is happenig with patchou.com

If you mean that users can install Plus! without noticing you're using it (like: no Plus! Menu). No, this will NEVER be added... Plus! is not intended to be spyware or a keylogger, so don't even think of using it for that purpose.
RE: NEW VERSION (february 2003) - download now! by fluffy_lobster on 02-04-2003 at 06:38 PM

great job patchou!

why does it say Messenger Plus Credits by the close button on the easter egg? is this something to come in the public version?  I won't ask about the tampax...

If you want to spy on people then write it yourself - some people like patchou respect people's privacy

What is an invisible mode?  If you're talking about appearing offline, while being online, MSN already has a "Appear Offline" feature.  if you don't want one person to see you online, just block them.

Hmmm now it would be nice if someone who knew how to code for linux could port it for AMSN as well lol (Mind you i don't think that will happen)

i think Terre means instead of Appearing Online on sign in you Appear Offline Auto

and answer to that - i don't think Patchopu will ever do it cos he would have to modify the MSN Files which is illegal

For the last time: u don't have to modify the MSN executables if u want to sign in invisible (appear offline when u sign in). There are at least three other ways to do this that I know of (and none are illegal). The fact is, Patchou won't add it because it is either hard to do from his point of programming (which I doubt), or he has moral issues (which I have to agree with) or the use doesn't rate as high as the trouble of implementing it.

PS. Great work Patchou.

That is because a lot of people still has the OLD MP! versions....


Sorry, but that is Not True! The Website has been taken down by the host as reaction to the amount of hits it received of people wanting MP2. It was back once (they were trying if there were less hits yes....) But immediatly received to many hits cuz of the auto-update problem. And has taken down again. Therefore I advise everyone to download the new version on http://sock.demon.co.il/mp2 As fast as Possible!!! I think Patchou will request them to set the page up again in a few weeks as (with the help of some messenger site) most people will have the new MP2 version :grin:

wooow! That was A long post (especially for me :grin: ) Maybe that's cuz I will leave my school's computer room now and go home.. :wave: Bye!

[edit] changed the address to ..../mp2 sorry :$[/edit]
