A-Patch 1.40RC2 (build 17) for Windows Live Messenger

A-Patch is a lightweight program designed to enhance your Windows Live Messenger experience. It does this by giving you a multitude of options, over 80, which allow you to customize the look and feel of Windows Live Messenger, even change some functions.

Some of the options include the ability to remove the big advertisement located on the contact list. Another option would be to disable the nudge delay timer, allowing you to send consecutive nudges without having to wait a few seconds in between. Other useful options include removing buttons such as "Activities", "Windows Live Today", and dozens of others buttons, multi-msn, show idle status of other users, and so on.

A-Patch has over 80 options for you to play with which might seem a bit daunting for new users, which is exactly why it comes with a built-in preview window. Basically, you can preview the changes of nearly every option before actually applying it, it really couldn't be easier.

Changelog:

  • Added: Dutch Translation for A-Patch
  • Added: Turkish Translation for A-Patch

Very nice, powerful app. Who gives a rat's ass what his religion is? Everybody's got to believe in something. I believe I'll have another drink!

i still miss some features the messpatch has. i know this one has a couple mess doesn't, but i can do without them, i can't do without the mess ones though. i wish they were added to the a-patch, because it's usually out quicker and the preview option is awesome.

It patches as advertised, but if I want to be preached at I'll go to a church, synagogue or mosque... :P

No doubt, it gets old having islam pushed on you. But it is a nice program, unfortunately there is no point to upgrading to this one unless your dutch.

I get your point, but from what I remember about the messages in the patch installer I didn't consider it being "pushed on you" as such, merely a small advertisement for a religion wrongly labelled (for the most part, of course) as being extremist etc. I consider someone stopping me in the street pushing it on me; a small message or two in an installer which you can ignore, I consider that the coder's right to put it into something he's put a lot of work into. :)

But, of course, that's just my opinion (and I'm not bitching, just expressing my views... I should really start a blog so I don't produce massive comments all the time )
