A couple of new features added thanks to Erazor. Also, some minor bug fixes.

Feature: Disable Photo Sharing
Feature: Disable Video Sharing

http://apatch.org/


I'm just curious as to what benefit there is to disabling these 2 things?

Hate to sound like a broken record but I'm still unable to shrink the contact window down to a small enough size.

Is there something hard-coded that prevents sizing below a minimum value (287 pixels wide by 496 pixels high)? Or am I the only one bothered by this?

Appreciate the work on build 13 but this is driving me crazy.

The major benefit is that Messenger won't decide to open up a full-window photo share UI when all you really wanted to do was share a link to an image.

Hi, I don't know any way around this.

Added a new section to the website which includes instructions on how to disable the new animations:

Doesn't work for me. I have disabled photo sharing, but dragging photos onto the chat or pasting clipboard photos still initiates photo sharing. Using 15.4.3502.922, which was just updated to that as latest. The supported version according to the site (15.4.3508.1109) seems to indicate it should work for me. Why doesn't it?

I ensured it was a clean copy and updated to the latest version that the Essentials installer will allow.

Do the other options work for you?

I wish that contacts were bigger when using the full view. At least the favorites... If you switch to the compact view, they are like that but I can't find any option to organize the contacts either... :/

Yep, everything is fine. It's just the Photo sharing that doesn't seem to do anything. Can't explain it.

I just experienced an even worse event I didn't know it started with, which made me come back to this thread. I pasted a link to an image and (HORROR!) the photo sharing started even for that! Damn!

Edit: Looks like this person's having the same issue: http://apatch.org/fo...pic.php?f=5&t=7

Hey Ahmz!

I've been following you since Msn Messenger 8.0 times, from then you've made Msn more useful. Thanks for that, god bless you. But I'm having problems with the latest patch, about wlm 2011. I patched msn, everything works fine except Photo&Video sharing. All the ads are gone etc. but i still can't drag&drop, or c/p my pics to the reciever.

I hope you'll write soon & bring a solution with you :)

Thanks a lot.

Cankat, Istanbul.
