Well it says that "this skin does not appear to be compatible with the version of Messenger you're currently using"

RE: [Release] Stealth 2 - Join the dark side!
The skin is simply amazing.. I've been using it for 2 days so far and I'm loving it. However, there's that little bug or something I noticed.. It's about the DP borders.. I mean, they keep changing from stealth to original MSN borders.. Even though I have the stealth ones selected, sometimes when I run MSN, it just gives me the old ones.. Quite frustrating cause I really do love the Stealth borders.. Any idea of what's going on?

It's a funky WLM limitation. The DP borders only work on the first instance of WLM. If there are multiple, then subsequent instances take the regular one. (that's what I think.)

That's the thing actually, it does it on my first instance.. Like, right after I boot my laptop, it will just have the original borders.. It's almost a game of luck, like restarting MSN until I get the stealth borders. I even tried killing the process and starting it fresh.. No luck either. I don't really care how the borders look on my other instances..

I seems to be happening to most people, dunno what can be the problem but afaik it happens with different skins, I would try reinstalling latest Messsenger Plus! if it still does not work I can provide a compressed file (RAR) to put in the Plus! folder, that way you can at least see if it shows in the list of skins and then just apply it:

Download it from here

just put the folder in the regular direectory:
(C:\Program Files\Messenger Plus!\WLM-Skins)

or wherever you have installed mplus.

btw, that one is compatible with Plus 5.02

Little bug from Messenger Plus! (afaik) where some resources donīt get applied properly, hopefully it will be fixed in a future version (crossing fingers :P)

The one Iīve used in the screenie is called "Placebo Black Market" for Windows 7. you can get it here

dunno if it is available for anoher windows version.

A similar vs is Dark Soft

I just forgot some other ones that could fit the skin, guess most of them can be found at DA ;)
