awesome, just downloaded it, works perfectly :)

Does anyone know how to change the background colour for conversation windows? i can't change it for the main window but can't find how to do it for conversation windows. I'm using WLM 2011 btw.

IIRC, the color of the conversation window is set by the color picked by the contact you are talking to for his main window.

Epic! But, still one problem I've noticed with all versions since they integrate with the Win7 taskbar:

using APatch breaks taskbar thumbnails. In the old one it used to break the display picture, now it breaks contact window previews... Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks Ahmz!

The first time i used messenger after installing the latest build of a-patch, contact window previews were broken, but now they are working fine :)

ahmz,

Have you considered seeing if there's a way to remove the client's window from the alt-tab list so it works the way the previous version did again?

that removes their theme, any way i can make my contact window black now? The thumbnail preview doesnt work when you start WLM2011, you have to click on the window once then the thumbnail will work, hope you can fix this.

Awesome work ahmz!

Been using your patches since forever.

By the way anyone knows if there is an option anywhere to disable "auto sharing photos" in wlm2011?

If i paste a url containing a photo it will try to auto share it and sometimes it doesn't show the url itself, even if i paste it at people with older version of wlm.

It's really annoying i don't want to share photos all the time maybe they are nsfw!

A-Patch is working great. All the new features in 1.43b11 are terrific.

However, I was disappointed to find that I'm still unable to further shrink down the ("compact view") contacts window. I thought the search bar was preventing it from being narrowed, but apparently not. With everything removed, I still can't re-size the window any smaller than 287 pixels wide by 496 pixels high.

The conversation window can't go smaller than 451 pixels wide by 478 high, but I care less about that than the contacts window, which I like to have as small and unobtrusive as possible. I also have no use for the "full view" window and social networking stuff, so wouldn't mind having that toggle removed, although again, it's not a big deal to ignore.

Thank you for your great work on this essential application. If not for A-Patch, I would have long ago ditched WLM.

Thank you for the build 12 version. I was hoping that it would allow me to further reduce the size of the messenger main window but no joy on that yet. I do like to keep that window open (the compact view) on the desktop to keep tabs on my contacts, but the (minimum) size of WLM 2011 is still way too big. It's one of the things that may drive me back to running the prior version of WLM.

I love you A-Patch but please remove that religion BS from it. Because honestly I hate people shoving religion on others in any form.
