O.P. Script that saves chatlog in real-time to receive all messages even with crash?
Hi.

Is there a script or other feature that saves Chat Log in real-time?

So if somebody says something to me, when I am away, then it will saved automatically into chat log. This means, when my system would crash or experience outage problems, I could still read the message from logs after system has booted up.

Any ideas?

I have missed that feature for very long time.

Plus! saves you messages quite quickly after they are send though. It used to be only after a certain amount of time (or even only when the convo was closed - dunno exactly anymore), but iirc this was already changed in Pus!4.something....

As for an existing script: No, AFAIK there is no script to do exactly what you ask for.

But there is ReadThis for example:
http://www.msgplus.net/Downloads/Download-Details/DocumentID/7880/

This will show you a toast if you close a chat window too quickly. Dunno if that may be of interest. I doubt it though, but just in case....


And there is SessionSaver from fatfreechicken:
http://shoutbox.menthix.net/showthread.php?tid=79194

This one re-opens chat windows after a crash. But it does not restore messages which were send right before the crash though. At least not by itself. However, if you also enable "Show my last conversation in new conversation windows" in Messenger, it usually will show you the last recieved messages (but only if Messenger itself was able to save them of course).

Note: the above links might not work properly. The servers are being updated so it might be that you can't access this link or see the script in question.

Well, thank you for replies and suggestions but those links doesn't satisfy the needs.

WLM saves log when closing message window, and so does Messenger Plus. My wish is that it saves, when somebody says something.
Yea, it stresses hdd, but who cares about hdd's today?

Actually, Messenger Plus saves messages as they are sent, not just when the conversation window closes.

You can test this out by opening a Messenger Plus log of an active conversation and you'll see the recent chat history

It does save messages during a conversation, but it is not instant, at least not always.

On the other hand, do you really need things to be saved that instant. I guess at most there could be a 10 - 15 minute delay. PC crashes shouldn't be a common thing :).

But if you really do want instant save, it is probably possible to write a script to do that.
