Is there a way that plus can reduce the mem usage or WLM?

RE: First glimpse of version 4.50
HI my friends,

First of all i want to say that i can't wait to get my hands on the the new version....:cry:

Then I want to know if there is a way to know if your contacts are login in from a computer or from their mobiles because i leave WLM on and go away from my desk so when they log in and then log out and when i come back i open the event viewer but the ((EVENT VIEWER)) does not show that information.

So i wonder if the new release will have this feature, and if not is there a script to do that ?   THANKS IN ADVANCE

RE: First glimpse of version 4.50
I have a few questions in reguards to skinning:

1. What file format will the images we need be in?

2. In the screenshots of Sunshine's skylines skin, the corners of the skin are black, so my question is: Is transparency supported (.png preferably).

3. Will all the parts of WLM be skinable just as if we had 'hacked' the resources ourselves? Will more things be modifiable (contact list colors?)

4. Will the buttons (dashboard, and chat window) be editable?

5. With the skinning engine, is it possible to REMOVE stuff from WLM? Such as the DP container and stuff like that? Not that I'd want to, just using that as an example.

6. Can the skinning engine modify the position of window elements (such as centering, aligning to the right, moving the DP's to the LEFT side of the screen etc?).

My main concern is if the skinning engine will support transparancy however. If we can use .png images that will make me happy. I am looking forward to this release more than ever now ^__^!

Keep up the amazing work Patchou ^_^

If you open the event viewer BEFORE you leave your desk then it will track all of the events while you are away from your desk, then when you get back you can scroll back through it and see what has happened

or if it's just for selected contacts you can right click and do "contact information" and it will show all of their movements

yes, this can be fairly easily accomplished, for example moving the section of the contact list window that yours your display picture, screenname & personal message down to the bottom of the window


and your other two questions have already been answered

Any fomat, but most commonly BMP, JPG, PNG.

PNG transparency is supported, that is, you will be able to see whatever is behind that element - you will not however be able to see your desktop without reshaping the window to remove the corners (which is also possible through the skinning engine).

Qa) Yes, Qb) Contact list colours could always be modified through resource editing however MsgPlus does still offer a greater number of means for modifying Messenger such as the ability to add options to your skin, reshape your Messenger window (see http://shoutbox.menthix.net/showthread.php?tid=79102&pid=863270#pid863270).
Hex editing however will not be possible through the skinning engine - hex editing isn't important/necessary anyway.

Yes, this was always possible through resource editing.

The skinning engine's abilities is limited to the skinning abilities of the user - This can be done but perhaps not everyone will be able to do so.


EDIT: I should probably add that skinning Messenger does require some knowledge and a lot of experimentation - it is not a simple drag-and-drop engine or anything like that. The documentation will however help anyone get started.
