Thanks for notifying :)

Yeah a BIG problem. I got the error and clicked no just to see what the logs were since I hadn't chatted in a while. Turns out the logs were of chats I had over 12 hours ago, and it happens CONSTANTLY!

I was asleep for 8 hours. I can't believe the logs couldn't have been uploaded during that time at the very least!

The new owners seem to have turned Messenger Plus from a quality product to a giant advertisement for love tests, chatting in 60+ languages, and other nonsense. With one or two interesting, but broken, features thrown in as an after thought. This is absolutely ridiculous!

Reverting back to Plus4. No way are you going to use your broken software to display your ads at me. Might upgrade again if Yuna Soft or what ever the company's name is gets their act together or at least removes the advertisements.

Ermm... you may have a point about the features not working properly etc., but not about the advertisements and sponsor related stuff. Absolutely nothing in Plus! 5 is different compared to Plus! 4 regarding that. In fact, the used sponsors are even less intrusive than the ones used before.

Yuna Soft. takes control, there's an update, and suddenly there's buttons filling almost all the empty space in button bars in the chat windows. In exchange we get a few new half broken features.

Never once have I seen buttons created by Plus for Love Tests, Winning an Ipad2, Chatting in 60+ Languages, and more before now. The sponsor has always been, and still is, optional, but those buttons are not.

Unfortunately, old versions of plus were never put on Filehippo or other such sites, and I can't find a pre-Yuna version. I guess I'll just go without Plus for a while. No big loss. Had I known though I never would have accepted the update.

EDIT: Finally found a download for version 4.8.

those buttons were also present in Plus! 4.
And those buttons are, just as in Plus!4, also still optional:

Tried that, and get an error when trying to install. I see that Yuna's name is on that one, so I imagine the same ad buttons will be present anyways.

I finally found a download for version 4.8. I can finally not have buttons for love tests and chats cluttering up the interface, and use skins again without it messing up my emoticons.

I might update again once they fix the online logging feature. It's the only new feature that interested me enough to live with the new clutter.

PS: There is also no difference between Plus! 4 signed by Yuna, which you can still download from the official site, and the last Plus! 4 signed by Patchou. Only the signature is different...

Like I said in my previous post, I've never once seen them. I've never even seen the option you speak of either.

I'm looking through the preferences for Plus 4.8 right now, and don't see that option anywhere. If it's there, it's well hidden and off by default. I don't remember seeing it in Plus 5 either, so it must have also been well hidden and on by default.

Either way, it doesn't really matter. Whether the option is there or not, the buttons aren't, and I have a proper working version of Plus. Case closed.

I might give it another try when they fix the problems.

Except for the fact that the version signed by Yuna I couldn't install, for some unknown reason. It kept giving me an error to try again later.

The version signed by Patchou installed right away with zero problems.

And I have WLM the lastest version of WLM for XP, so something other than just a few 2011 fixes must be different.
